McKean Democrat (Newspaper) - May 4, 1922, Smethport, Pennsylvania Four the me Kab may4, .1922 the my Lieari Democrat Russell Lindsley editor and manager. Entered at the Post Soltice at Smethport pa., As second class mutter Smethport pa., thursday May 4, 1922. Editorial every. So often the Newspaperman s journals receive word from somebody in the West that he or she has the Only copy in existence of the Ulster county Gazett of january 4, 800, announcing the death of George Washington. It s a scream the ingenious dutchman who _ says fourth estate conceived the idea Twenty still growing and we have an abiding Faith in of getting some time raged paper and Renrod Cine. We believe it was but it to exist. The Democrat has been one of the newspapers of this Section which has conscientiously tired to give its subscribers their full Money s Worth of news. We have Laboured cease Lessly and until singly to set a Pace for weekly country newspapers in this Section. That our efforts have not gone in vain is attested by the fact that partisan prejudices have been overcome to the extent that our readers Are the Wise per sons who when they Foj news service for 52 weeks take the newspaper which absolute by renders them their Money s Worth in publish ing every particle of available news. Our subscription list has tripled in three years Jime hav ing a third again As Many paid subscribers As any other newspaper in this territory and is reproducing we might have been copies of the Ulster county Gazette containing the death of George Washington and Selling them As relics of a the fairness and appreciation of the Public mind to feel that the Democrat will continue to grow in spite of the Back stabbing of a handful of citizens so Long As we continue to Render service to the limit of our capacity which we propose to do so Long As we guide the destinies Hundred years before Little thought of the propose to do so Long As we Gull a tie destinies monstrous joke he might play on his country of this paper. We have absolutely a Clear con joke men As years went on. Publishers auxiliary. One of the favorite arguments against adjusted compensation has been directed at the Fin Ancial results of raising the Money necessary to carry out the terms of the Bill now before con Gress. It was stated that american finance new could not weather such expenditures As compensation would require so Long As the Money had to be raised in America. It is interesting to note therefore that Ohio recently sold Worth of Bonds intend ing to give compensation with the proceeds. Strangely enough the Bankers of America did hot shun the Ohio Bond Issue fearing it would ruin the finances of the state. On the contrary idiot one of the four bids received was for less than the full amount of and the winning bidder paid a Premium of to underwrite the Issue or a Price of for each Bond. For All the Nice things a newspaper says it boosts for Home enterprises for citizens and for general Progress the editor never receives one word of encouragement. The arrangement be tween press and Public requires the newspaper to do All the boosting but entails no Obliga science in knowing that we have rendered these few disgruntled readers their full Money s Worth even if something does appear occasionally in these columns which they go out of their Way to take offence at. We notice that the most of them whose activities we have been informed of in spite of their High principles which cause them to repudiate the Democrat do not balk or never have walked at accepting free favors from our readers May recall of having read of an incident occurring in the publishing Days of Benjamin Franklin in Philadelphia when he invited a coterie of patrons who had become peeved at things the poor Richard had said and had threatened to Boycott him to Dine with him and served them a meal consisting of Plain Mush. If we remember rightly the Point of mind of the disgruntled ones when they left the Franklin table was considerably altered.
