PUBLICITY IN WAR
IS RIGHT OF PEOPLE
Richard Harding Davis Shows
How Stupid Censorship Has
Defeated Own Ends.
CORRESPONDENT NOT SPY
Not Secrets of Army Plans for Fu
ture Wanted, but Plain Facts
Already Accomplished, and
J i These Cannot Hurt.
BY RICHARD HARDING DAVIS.
(Copyright, 1814, by the Wheeler Syndicate,
NEW YORK, Nov. 17 The attitude
of the newspaper reader toward the
war correspondent who tries to supply
him with war news Is puzzling.
One might he pardoned for suggest
ing that their Interests are the same.
If the correspondent la successful, the
better service he renders the reader.
.The more he Is permitted to see at the
front, the more news he is allowed to
cable home, the better satisfied should
be the man who follows the war
through the "extraa."
Reader Enjoys HI Joke.
What happens is the reverse of that.
Never Is the "constant reader" so de
lighted as when the war correspondent
Kets the worst of It. It is the one sure
laugh. The longer he is kept at the
base, the more he Is bottled up, "de
leted," censored, and made prisoner,
the greater Is the delight of the man
at home. He thinks the joke Is on the
war correspondent. I think it is on
the "constant reader." If, at break
fast, the correspondent falls to supply
the morning paper with news, the
reader shrieks his scorn and says the
Joke Is on the newsgatherer. If the
milkman falls to leave the milk, and
the baker the rolls, is the Joke on the
milkman and the baker or la it on the
constant reader? Which goes hungry?
The explanation of the attitude of
the "constant reader" to the reporters
seems to be that he regards the cor
respondent as a prying busybody, as
a sort of spy, and when he is snubbed
and suppressed he feels he is properly
punished. Perhaps the reader also re
sents the fact that while the corre
spondent goes abroad, he stops at home
and receives the news at second-hand?
Correspondent More Fortaoatr.
Tou have seen unhappy small boys
outside a baseball park, and one happy
boy inside on the highest seat of the
grandstand, who calls down to them
why the people are yelling and who
has struck out. Do the boys on the
ground love the boy In the grandstand,
and are they grateful to him? Not so
you would notice it.
Does the fact that they do not love
him and are not grateful to him for
telling them the news distress the boy
in the grandstand? Not so you would
notice it. For no matter how closely
ho is bottled up, how strictly cen
censored. "deleted," arrested, searched
and persecuted, as between the man at
home and the correspondent, the corre
spondent will always be the more for
tunate. He Is watching the march of
great events, he is studying history In
the making, and all he sees is of In
terest. Were it not of interest he
would not have been sent to report it.
He watches men acting under the
stress of all the great emotions. He
sees them inspired by noble courage,
pity, the spirit of self-sacrifice, of loy
alty, and pride of race and country.
Man at Home Misses Thrill.
In Cuba I saw Captain Robb Church
of our Army win the medal of honor.
In South Africa I saw Captain Gray, of
tne acot ureys, win his victoria cross
Those of us who watched him knew he
had wont it Just as surely as you know
wnen a runner crosses the home plate,
and scores. Can the man at home get
irom me crook play or the home run a
thrill that can compare with the sight
or a man ottering up his life that other
men may live?
oince returning to New York, every
second man 1 Know greets me sympa-

Civilisation Demands to Know.
When Orville Wright hid himself in
South Carolina to perfect his flying
machine ne oDiected to what he called
the "spying" of the correspondents. One
of them rebuked him. "You have dis
covered something." he said, "in which
the whole civilized world is Interested.
If it is true you have made it possible
for man to fly, that discovery is more
important than your personal wishes.
Your secret is too valuable for you to
keep to yourself. v e are not spies,
We are civilization demanding to know
If you have something that more con
cerns the whole world than it can pos
6ibly concern you.
As applied to war, that point of view
Is equally Just. The army calls for
your father, husband, son; calls fo
your money. It enters on a war that
destroys your peace of- mind, wrecks
your business, kills the men of your
family, the man you were going to
marry, the son you brought into the
world. To you the army says, "This
is our war. We will fight it In our own
way, and of it you can learn only what
we choose to tell you. We will not let
you know -whether your country is
winning the fight, or is in danger;
whether we have blundered and the sol
diers are starving; whether they gave
their lives gloriously or through our
lack of preparation or inefficiency are
dying of neglected wounds." If you
answer that- you will send with the
army men to write letters home and
tell you, not the plans for the future
and the secrets of the army, but what
are already accomplished facts, the
army makes reply: "No, those men
cannot be trusted. They are spies."
Statement Indiscreet, But Fart.
When Captain Granville Fortescue,
of the Hearst syndicate told the French
General that his word as a war corre
spondent was as good as that of any
General In any army, he was Indiscreet,
but he was stating a fact. The answer
of the French General was to put him
in prison. That was not an intelligent
The last time I was arrested was at
Romigny by General Asebert. I had
on me a 3000-word story written that
morning in Rheims telling of the wan
ton destruction of the cathedral. I
asked the general staff, for their own
good, to let the story go through. It
stated only facts which I believed, were
they known to civilized people, would
cause them to protest against a repe
tition of such outrages. To get the
story on the wire, I made to Lieutenant
Lucien Frechet and Major Klotz, of
the general staff, a sporting offer. For
every word of my dispatch they cen
sored I offered to give them for the
Red Cross of France five francs. That
was an easy way for them to subscribe
to the French wounded $3000. To
release his story Gerald Morgan, of
the London Daily Telegraph, made them
the same offer. It was a perfectly safe
offer for Gerald to make, because a
great part of his story was an essay
on Gothic architecture. Their answer
was to put both of us in the Cherche
Midi prison. The next day the censor
read my story, and said to Lieutenant
Frechet and Major Klotz: "But I insist
this goes at once. It should have been
sent 24 hours ago."
Treatment of Italian Stapld.
There was the case of Lulgi Barzini.
In Italy Barzini is the D'Annunzio of
newspaper writers. Of all Italian Jour
nalists he Is the best known. On Sep
tember 18 at Romigny, General Asebert
arrested Barzini, and for four days
kept him in a cow stable. Except what
he begged from the gendarmes he had
no food and he slept on straw. When
I saw him at the headquarters of the
general staff under arrest I told them
who ha was, and that were I in their
place I would let him see all there was
to see, and let him, as he wished, write
to his people of the excellence of the
French army, and of the Inevitable suc
cess of the allies. With Italy balanc
ing on the fence and needing little urg
ing to cause her to join fortunes with
France, to choose that moment to put
Italian journalists In a cowyard struck
me as dull.
In order to keep at the front, or
near It, we were forced to make use
of every kind of trick and expedient.
That we were with allied armies in
stead of with one army was a great
help. We would play one against the
other. When a French officer halted
us, we would not -show him a French
pass, but a Belgian one, or one in
English, and out of courtesy to his
ally he would permit us to proceed.
But our greatest asset always was a
newspaper. After a man has been In
dirt trench for two weeks, absolutely
cut off from the entire world and
when that entire world is at war, for
newspaper he will give his shoes
and his blanket.
Newspaper Is Open Sesame.
The Paris papers were printed on a.
single r.heet and packed as close as
banknotes. We never left Paris with
out several hundred of them, but lest
we might be mobbed we showed only
one. It was the duty of one of us to
hold this paper in readiness. The man
who was to show the pass sat bv the
window. Of all our worthless passes,
our rule was always to show first the
one of least value. If that failed, we
brought out a higher card, and con
tinued until we had reached the ace.
If that proved to be a two-spot we all
went to Jail. Whenever we were halted
invariably there was the knowlne- in
dividual who recognized us as news
paper men, and in order to save his
country from destruction, clamored to
have us hanged. It was for this pest
that the one with the newspaper lay
in wait. The instant the nest onennd

of Berlin, Foreign Office Tells
Head of Volunteer Organiza
tion of South Ireland.
BERLIN, Nov. 22 (by wireless to
London.) Sir Roger Casement, of Dub
lin, a leader of the Irish Volunteers,
was received yesterday at the German
Foreign Office here. Sir Roger said
that statements had been published in
Ireland that a victory for German arms
In the war would result in a great loss
for the Irish people, whose homes,
churches and lands would be at the
mercy of the Invading army, which
would be actuated only by motives of
pillage and conquest.
These statements, coupled with re
cent speeches made by John Redmond,
have caused great apprehension among
the Irish as to what might be expected
In event of a German victory, said Sir
The acting secretary of the Foreign
Office, by order of the Imperial Chan
cellor, declared to Sir Roger that the
German government repudiated the
evil intentions attributed to it. Ger
many, he said, would never Invade Ire
land with a view to Its conquest or the
overthrow of any Irish Nationalist in
stitutions, - and should fortune ever
ring German troops to the Irish
shores, the troops would land not aa an
army of Invasion to pillage and de
stroy, but as the forces of a nation in
spired by - good will towards Ireland
and her people, for whom German de
sired national -prosperity and freedom.
Sir Roger Casement Is well known in
the United States. He visited this coun
try last Summer and made speeches In
numerous cities in support of home
rule for Ireland. '
Sir Roger was a leader in the move
ment which was started a year ago to
organize an Irish National Volunteer
force to uphold the authority of the
crown and government of Ireland on
the same lines as the Ulster force:
which Sir Edward Carson organized.
Sir Roger also Is well known for his
investigation, in 1912, Into the Puto
mayo rubber district atrocities. He
was Consul at Rio Janeiro at the time.

BILLS ARE BEING DRAFTED
Elimination Taxpayers' Meeting for
School Levy Proposed.
Legislative proceedings will be start
ed at the forthcoming session of the
General Assembly to eliminate the tax
payers' meetings that annually fix the
school levy In Portland and some other
cities of the state. -
At the same time it Is expected that
movement of this kind will meet

S. B. Huston, member of the Multno

working on the draft of a bill which
will give the School Board power to
establish the levy and do away with
the tax payers' meetings altogether.
It has been pointed out by experts
for many years that the present sys

of more than 35,000 tax payers getting
together every year and fixing the
levy for the entire community Is
wrong. They have pointed out that
