The following rwumi of the life work
of Arthur McEwen, the well-known adl
tortal and special newspaper .. writer,
whose death occurred a few days ago.
baa been furnished by X B. Tyler, man
ager of the Spectator, one of the most
experienced newspaper men on the Pa
lflo coast end a- wan who knew.Mr. Mc
Ewen ltt tha Id days of his work Id
San Francisco as well as during the lat
ter times when be had risen to more
'prominence In the Tiewspaper ' world.
The letter from Mr. Tyler follows:
-Arthur ' McKwen .was . , personal
friend of mine In early newspaper days
In Ban ir anclfrco. - He was -a special
writer on the Examiner when Joseph
Ward, now of Denver, was city editor.
I was a new man at the business and
had -hist - broken' ta M "WEterf fOht " re
porter for the Call. I became acquaint
ed with McEwen through Will Hart, one
. of the Examiner's special men, and we
three enjoyed many a pleasant evening
together at the old Press cjud in rme
"McEwen turned against the - "Inter
ests' In San Franclsoo and published Ar-
thur McEwen's ." Letter, a four-page
newspaper of small else, but full of
vigorous attacks on all things that ap
peared to the editor to be corrupt. Mr.
Hearst and Mr. Do Toung came In for
their share of caustlo criticism and the
government "was hauled' over -the coals.
The paper was a success rrom tne start,
the first week's profits being about 1800.
The street sales were In the tens of
1 thousands. "Bob' Davis, brother of Sam
Davis, the Nevada, short-story . writer
and humorist, was McEwen's manager.
Bob mounted a wagon la Kearney street
and shouted for the Letter and urged
newsboys to handle lt During the early
part of the Saturday or first publication
the boys did not respond very . readily,
but It was not noon before the paper
war selling so fast that the - presses
could not turn them out to supply the
demand. . ' -v. ,... .:.'.."'. o.f'j s-.
"MoEwea announced 'that he would
not take any advertisements la the pa
per for less than $30 per Inch, and that
he would restrict these advertisements
to certain classes of staple goods. His
paper was good during all the time that
hep'. Wished it, but his mind drifted to
ideas of greater things and peremptorily
he one afternoon ordered Davis to sus
pend publication. . The paper was at no
period of Its existence a financial fail
ure. . ' w , ' .( .-. '- - ' ' 'i:
As managing editor of the Examiner
McEwen was brilliant but impractte-1
able. Ha was too radical in his Ideas i
and was not wont to weigh carefully the
serious-auestlons of the day. He Was
more of a Judas of that which savored
of poetry and or and humor than of the
editorial that might injure tne newspa
per's standing with the thoughtful cltl-
sn. He went back to tne special siari
and . resleued when . e . determined to
publish his weekly letter. ' :v .
"From San Francisco McEwen went to
New York, to Hearst and to the Fhiia-
aeiDnia nona?Amincu. ' wiw iaw
ter newspaper he remained only a few
months and then went back to the New
York American where he remained until
he was summoned back to San Fran
Cisco br. the 1 Ban - Francisco Bulletin.
He started the campaign against the
Schmlts-Ruef ' faction . and, exploited
some of his most strenuous ideas in the
violent battle he put up for the extermi
nation Of twrso-oauea Hues nng, is
attacks were ' somewhat injudicious at
times and this lack of special investiga
tion of conditions caused reflex action
on the part of the people and SchmlU
was reelected because the feeling that
be . was being persecuted prevailed
among some of the best cltlsens. -
"McEwen went to New Tork after
falling to beat the Schmlts ring and re
mained there up to the time or his trip
to Bermuda':-,'..''., -:.;. r.-r.:
