HERALD AND SECRETARY ROBINSON }T'REALLY does seem true, as has said, that the Secretary- Treasurer of the city has no use for the Herald. It may be said also with -perfect candor that the Herald does not care in the slightest that this is true, except insofar as this state of affairs interferes with the perform- ance of its duty as a public organ. The trouDis between the Herald reporter right to call him to account As the public press is the organ of the rate- payers in this as in other matters, it is the duty of the papers to call him to task for it- Mr. Robinson has refused to allow the Herald reporter to get news out of the office. At a council meeting he even attempted to prevent him seeing the papers which had already become, and Mr- Robinson at the council meet- in -ne finest-sense of the word, public ing was bat the culmination of a series of events that have shown the feeling me official has for this newspaper. The exhibition Mr. Robinson made of himself is just what could have.been expected froso. him if one can judge from other childish and petty actions of his in times past If he chooses to still follow this .policy toward the Her- ald that is his concern. The Herald must govern itself accordingly. In such case Mr. Robinson has every pros pect of suffering, metaphorically speak ing, the fate of the bull that tried to stop the train. The Herald does not choose to air any personal matters before the pub- lic. This is not a pri'vate matter. It is something in which the public are interested. The Herald ever since it started has endeavored to keep the people well and authentically informed on the affairs of the municipality. This it recognized to -be its duty. It has endeavored to do this duty in a fair and unbiased manner. The pub- property by being read at the council. wuen he wanted to make note's off them. He has; ordered the reporter The brilliant leader-of the woman's movement smiled" and tne singularity is' increased the .ap, namesake decessor, to" the world the "If any man attempts A Dayman d At a little 'town in "In the past when a man American flag, .shoot t'jjjjjj oa Or, as.it used'to :he popularly rendered by frenzied" ora't- brs, shoots the American Min 1 do-jvn." The present John -Dix lacis one important rec: with the wildest enthusiasm. At its a right to know what their municipal council is doing with their money and their credit The Herald has had casioa to criticize the action of the members of the councils and the offi- cials sometimes. It has had to be se- vere at times in its criticism, but no one has ever yet accused the Herald of -being unfair. It has played no fav- orites, it has shown no prejudice to- wards anyone. It does not intend to. If, then, any official or alderman or mayor undertakes to thwart the Her- a'd or any. other newspaper in-getting out of his office.'the public office offj a public servant, with language unbe- coming a man in his position. He has declared, in spite of what the council ordered, that the Herald will get no! news or 'business from his office. He i thereby shows no respect for the coun- j or the people whom they represent That is not the correct attitude for a servant of the people to take, and Mr. Kobinson can feel perfectly assured, that the people feel this way about it. I The Herald denies that any of its i representatives ever went through any of the papers in any city office with- out having consent to do so. That is not the Herald's way of doing business.. I. SeWS 5Iiu has gOiitJ about it in the right way to get it. And the Herald is going to get the news still, or Know the reason why. Mayor Adams before he left the cit'yj yesterday gave Secretary Robinson his j orders, which, are that. Mr, is to show no partiality whatever, he j is to place all papers of any kind that may contain news for the public i.n a wire -basket on a certain desk or table in a certain office, where they are ac- cessible to all reporters, and other papers or news than these are not to be given to anyone. Alderman Bow- man, .who is acting Mayor during the Mayor's absence has assured the Her- aid that he will see that these orders are carried out These are the orders tne Secretary has to obey. If he re- fuses, or shows any trickery in get ting over the orders he will have to correct news of the municipality j take what he gets. This is a public to give the public, he offends against j matter and will be considered and act- the public, and the ratepayers have s jed upon as such. OUR POINT OF VIEW Secretary-Treasurer Robinson may yet find out that being a public ser- vant is rather different from being it seems hard for some people to re- cognize the greatness of service. It is up to the aldermen or tlie city TO see that the people get a .fair roport or what they do the representatives Of the people. The newspaper is their only means of knowing.

Alter Hearst had been chosen, Dix I bolted the convention and issued a j statement to the effect that he would not support such, z political .dealer as tne owner of the''New York'-Journal'. The Enmity of Hearst This incident may explain the hos- tility of the Hearst papers, to Mr. Dix's candidature this fall. Tbey-hax'e Ditterly assailed him on his labor rec- ord, alleging that he was hostile to unionism and that he paid sweatshop wages. This attack on Dlx was one of the features of the campaign; and his election may be interpreted as a slap ;ror both Roosevelt and Hearst Mr. DJX'S first display of real -political ability was made in 1908, when, as chairman of the Washington' County uemocratic he reunited the three warring factions of the party! in that county.
