THE STANDARD OF MORALITY.
Yesterday . . in conversation ' with a
.prominent-attorney, we received quite a
lecture on the duties of the press. "We
were told that the newspaper had a
holy mission to perform ; that to it
Bbould be, is, delegated the upholding of
the standard of public morality; that
on all occasions the newspaper should
be in the lead, taking a high' moral
stand on all subjects, and ' lifting the
public up to that standard. . The beauty
and force of the lecture was increased by
its absolute truth. ' Yet there is another
Bide to that question. The newspaper is
worldly ; it is conducted for the purpose
of earning a living, and in the delusive
hope of earning more. . '
"The newspaper as it should be, and
the newspaper as it is, are. two .'entirely
different things. Why? Because those
wh read it make it what it is. 'Its suc
cess depends more on what ie kept out of
it than what goes into it.. Let it take
the high moral standard our friend, pic
tured for us, and inside of six months
one-half of its subscribers, one-halt of
its patronage, and mayhap more would
be gone, and from its subscription list
would be stricken, at .his own request,
the name of the friend who so kindly
lectured us. How would, the same plan
of action suit our legal friend, and how
far would he go in lifting the standard
of public morals. Suppose, for instance,
he is employed to defend a murderer.
He is certain of his client's guilt. Does
he advise him to plead guilty, to repent,
to expiate his crime as the law, as hu
manity, as religion would dictate? No.
He begins to manufacture a defense;
with subtle ekill to weave from the evi
dence in the loom of fancy a robe of in
nocence. He brings to bear upon the
court the delicate niceties of law ; - con
tending inch by inch ; driven from one
point, intrenching himself in another;
but fighting for all he is worth. Beaten
in this, he turns to the jury. Every de
vice known to the profession, every
sophistry that human ingenuity can in
vent, is brought to bear. For what?
In the interest of justice and law? Not
In the interest ot the client ; in the in
terest of the lawyer, whose reputation
increases as his ability to defeat and
render of no avail the iawe, increases.
We are not finding fault with the law
yers, they have a code of morals of their
own, the first and greatest command of
which 'is duty and faithfulness to thoee
who employ them ;; but' we draw the
comparison simply injself-defense. We
cheerfully admit that a venal bar is no
. excuse for a venal press ; but we assert
that it is a venal world. Does the mer
chant who sells his goods thereby in
dorse' the character of his customers?
Is the smile with which he greets cus
tomers more than a portion of his stock
in trade? Does he, seek to "raise the
standard of morality," or does be look
after the shekels? Surely the last, and
So is it with the newspaper. It is in
the field to live, and to do this it cannot
be much above or beyond its readers.
The newspaper man must live. His
paper is his stock of goods, and by its
sale and the sale of its space .he ekes out
an existence. He treats it as the mer
chant does 'his goods, the lawyer bis.
He furnishes the goods his customers
want; not those that perhaps in some
other person's opinion they need. , He
supplies the demand, and if he does not,
loses his trade. X -
The ladies of San Francisco are going
to edit the Examiner of that city for one
day, and that day Christmas. The pro
prietor j Mr. Hearst, will turn the entire
plant over to tnem on that day, and
they will write the editorials,' collect the
local, edit the . telegraph matter, and
take the entire receipts of the paper for
the day. What appearance the paper
will present is hard to predict. That it
will be "just too sweet for anything is
sure; but whether the columns will be
fluted, put on bias, with frills at top and
bottom of column, or what the style of
the make-up may. be,' cannot -be even
guessed at At the best, or worst, it is
an interesting experiment, and one that
will attract considerable attention as the
time for that issue to get ripe ap
Two privates of the First regiment,
Niedermark and Garret tson, 'have been
tried by court martial and.acquitted of
the charge of violating the 62d article of
war. As the offense these military gen
tlemen were charged with was the swip
ing of a couple of tickets from the society
' circus recently showing in Portland, it
would seem from this that the 62d article
of. war is to the effect that "thou shalt
not steal circus tickets," or else that in
flicting a society circus on. a trusting
public should be punished with death or
at least disgrace.

A TRAGIC ROMANCE.
A Texas Desperado Whose Victims Were
' Scattered Far and Wide.
The man who told the story between
the puff s of his cigar was from Texas,
says the Kansas City Times. -r "Clay
Allison's life was a tragic romance," he
began. "Clay Allison was a desperado.
He lived in the Red river country in
the panhandle. ' Hs trigger finger-was
busiest in the early '80s. ' His record
was ' twenty-one. , He : boasted of it.
Twenty-one dead men, whose graves
were scattered from Dodge City to
Santa Fe. I myself saw him kill . Bill
Chunk, a- bad man, who shot people
jnst for the fun of seeing them fall.
The two men had no cause for quarrel.
They were the prize killers of the
same section of the country. , It : was a
spirit of rivalry which made them
swear to shoo); each other oh sight.
Their friends bet on the result of their
first chance rencontre. , The met one
night at a cross-road inn in New Mexico
and sat down at tables opposite each
other, with their drawn , six-shooters
resting on their laps beneath their
napkins. A plate of ' oysters on the
shell had just been set before Chunk,
when he dropped his hand,' in careless
fashion', and sent a ball at Allison e
neath the table. - Quick as a leap of
lightning Allison's gun replied. A "tiny
red spot between Chunk's eyes marked
where the bullet entered. The dead
man rolled over on the table and was
'still, with his face downward in the
dish of oysters.
"Allison was a large cattle owner.
Ho went on a drive to Kansas City once,
and while here fell in love, married,
and took the woman to his home in the
west to live. A child was born to them'
a child whose face was as beautiful
as the face of cherub, but whose poor
little ' body was horribly .deformed.
Allison loved the child with the great
love of his passionate nature'. In the
babe's misshapen and twisted form his
superstitious mind read a meaning as
significant as - that of .the message
which, the ' Divine hand wrote on the
palace walls of the king of old in
Babylon. God, he thought, had visited
a curse upon him for his sins. He quit
his wild ways. Do drank no more. No
man ever after the birth of his child
fell before his deadly pistol. He was
completely changed. In the- new life
which followed he devoted himself
with absorbing energy to his business
interests. He became rich in time.
Ten thousand cattle on the Texas
ranges, bore his brand. A few years
ago he was driving from his ranch on a
heavy road wagon to town. The heavy
wheels jolted down into a- deep' rut.
Allison was. pitched-, headforemost to
the ground. His neck was broken.
The team jogged on into the distance
and left him' lying there, dead and
alone upon the prairie." '.,'.. ' .
A COSTLY PROCEEDING.
The Penalty of Asking for a Kiss in Brit
The police court reports in the Lon
don papers sometimes quote the price
of a kiss, which usually, lvn.'e:; lr.;m
half a crown to half a 'iiovroL.-n. lic-
ccrding to the temperiiuiant ci. the
riirg-istrate. How ridiculously cheap
t'ti is, says a writer in London Truth,
will be seen from the followiujj ac
count of the cost of merely asking for
a kiss, which has been sent to me from
India: ' ..
'Probably you will hardly credit the
story, but it is quite true, and, though
the names are withheld by the Allaha
hv.Cl paper which gives the facts, the
parties are well known. An oflicei of
the Madras medical service was hold
in one of the most -desirable civil
surgeoncies in the province, and there
he received a visit from a civilian and
his wife. While driving with, the lady
in a dog-cart the doctor asked her for
a kiss. It was very wrong, (especially
as there was a native servant si tling
behind the couple), and he met with the
stern repulr,e which his impudence and
imprniienec invited. This exsmplary
woman af terward wrote to the doctor
that she had told her husband of his
conduct. The doctor then wrote an
abject apology, which the husband
submitted to the Madras government.
Without being allowed to say a word
on " his own behalf, the doctor was
forthwith officially advised to ' re
sign the service . to avoid dismissal.
Since then the Madras government has
been induced to modify " its decision.
The" offc-nuer is graciously permitted
to serve the further nine months neces
sary to qualify him for the lowest scale
of pension, but he has been transferred
frtfm his civil surgeoncy back to mili
tary service .end packed off to a remote
station in upper lJttrruab."
The Sole Object of Minnesota Couple at
the World's rair.' "
' At the world's fair it was amusing. to
note the diversity of objects which vis
itors found the most interesting. One
young woman, who was busy writing
in her note-book in the atrricultural
"building, hurriedly ran over to a table
and pushed to the front with go much
zeal that the bystanders supposed she
had forgotten her purse or something
else equally important; ' but having
scanned the table eagerly, she merely
said: "O, yes, sugar . beets," and - ran
away again to a sheltered place to
write it down. .
Another instance was that of an old
couple, weary-looking and r bundle
laden, who asked a guard where the
Minnesota- building could be found.
He indicated the direction.
, "Is it fur?" asked, the man.
"Yes, about half a 'mile from here."
"O dear! ' Well, come, Mary, we'll
put her through now -we're here,". said
the old man, shouldering his heavy
bundle. ; t - -
' But the woman was more garrulous.
She detained the guard long enough to
explain that they lived in Minnesota
twelve years and then moved to Ohio.
Now they were going back to Minne
sota. - ,
""We was goin' through Chicago, so
we jest stopped off two hours to see
the fair. We don't keer much for fairs
anyway; all we want to see is the Min
nesota buildin', and we are bound to
see that, if it takes half a day!" ' .
