THE GRAND JURY'S VERDICT.
The last chapter in the un
seemly controversy which has
been waored for the last three
years between the Portland Ore-
eonian and the Journal, has
found expression in the report
of the late grand jury of Mult
nomah county. So distasteful
has the controversy been to the
readers of both papers that
many of the patrons thereof no
doubt at times felt inclined to
cease taking either paper, but
with the averge person the Press
dispatches have become a necessity.
These two great "papers should
read time and again the report
of the trrand j - ry, to guide them
in-thc-ir future duties to the pub
lic. After studying carefully
that boJy's report the managers
of those two papers should be
' able to "see then sel ves as others
For the manager of a news
paper to decide always what is
interesting news, proper to be
published for the information
of his readers, is not an
easy matter. But that which
is purely and simply a personal
quarrel between two rival man
agers of two lines of business,
should certainly be kept forever
from public sight.
The grand jury substantially
states in raport that they
found th alleged libelous matter
aroe out of a newspaper contro
versy, but instead of indicting
the participants the jury proposes
to leave the matter to that great
est of juries, "public opinion"
before whom both- contestants
have already been indicted on
the charge of "abusing the lib
erty of the press." The mission
of a newspaper is noble and
grand, and they should be con
ducted by men of that turn of
mind. When they descend,
however, from the idea of edu
cating the neonle to truth and
right to the dissemination of
patty, selfish strife and the
abuse each of the other, they
descend from the high ideal of a
public newspaper and receive the
contempt of the majority of the
reading public being as the grand
jury properly said, indicted by
public opinion on the charge of
abusing the liberty 01 the press
The Journal entered the Port
land field of journalism only a
few years ago and began its
fierce attacks upon the Oregon
ian much as a saucy boy on the
street would issue insulting slang
j a neighbor passing by old
enough to be his grandfather.
Tna Oregonian for a time with
stood the saucy impudence of its
youthful rival until at last it lost
its temper and began to retaliate
in the same fashion of the attacks
Every banker in a community
worthy of any distinction what
ever ia the business, helps every
worthy business with financial
aid, and because Wra M. Ladd,
of Portland, saw proper to ren
der financial assistance to the
Jour nil the Oregonian has pur-
'suii fierce attacks upon Mr.
Lad 1 and ocher .interests in and
abo it Portland with which Mr.
Laid was presumed to have held
stock or had something to do,
showing the ability of the Ore
" gonian to color its ideas and the
calibre of the Attacks with near
lv ns much iuvenile judgment as
was the begining of the contro
versy waged by the Journal.
While it may lw uup'easant to
Mr. Ladd in a way because of
the personal attacks he has re
. ceived, yet ina business way no
doubt the insult has resulted in
gain and substantial growth .to
his business, because of the wide
; range of advertising "which their
attacks have given him.
If the reading public which
takes their journals could have a
long continued resting spell, and
have what they subscribe to and
Day for. to-wit: substantial,
truthful views not discolored by
any reflection of imaginary pend
ing foes, the people would gladly
pray to an alUwise providence to
forever relieve them of being the
readers again of such uncalled
for controversies, especially when
they proceed from motives not
public in any sense whatever,
but purely selfish to the two combatants.
