SUNDAY DECEMBER C.1S85
The Oregonian was thirty-five
years old yesterday. The Sun
day Oregonian celebrates its
fourth aniversary to-day. To say
that the Oregonian is the leading
newspaper of the northwest is but
to say what every one concedes to
be the fact. In general its. re
sponsibility is the measure of its
pewer: it is a factor of good in
the circle of its influence and its
efforts are for the best interests of
the country that for over a gener
ation has supported it and seen it
prosper. As a newspaper, a ve
hicle for the dissemination of intel
ligence it is the paper. This is
the chief function of a public jour
nal that has for its purpose what
the Oregonian claims is its intent.
Apart from the lurnishing of news
a newspaper is supposed to echo
public thought, to voice public
sentiment, and without specially
leading, to direct public opinion.
When the opinion of a newspaper
is believed to be unbiased it has
considerable influence: when that
opinion is evidently the public ex
pression of private judgement or
appears to be influenced by preju
dice or a desire to view only one
side of the case, the opinion loses
People care less for newspaper
opinions than most newspaper
men imagine. Of course a man
in or out of a newspaper office
that has no opinion is a fool; a
man that is afraid to express his
opinion is a coward, but what we
mean is a vast majority of news
paper readers care less for the
editor's opinion than for the exact
statement of the facts themselves.
In coloring the statement of
facts to suit the beliefs, hopes or
wishes of the editor, the journal in
question loses prestige and stand
ing, for people readily see and
judge how much credence to give
what they see in a newspaper. It
is but due the Oregonian to say
that it has always had the courage
of its convictions, and although
not always willing to concede to
others the consistency it claims for
itself, yet, on the whole, it exhibits
at least no more of that spirit than
its lesser contemporaries.
The AsTOitiAX congratulates its
Portland contemporary on its thirty-fifth
birthday, and is sincerely
pleased to note the editorial state
ment in yesterday's issue that it is
doing a good business and is finan
cially a success.
In. 1855 each operator in a shoe
factory (according to Massachu
setts labor commission statistics)
made 455 pairs of shoes and earned
205 a year. In 1885 he made
1,205 pairs, and his wages had
risen to $390, though he worked
22 per cent less time.

Ma, Editor :
Permit m space In your paper to expres3
in v views of the Democratic convention held
at the court house In Astoria, Saturday
evening. The nominations were maae uy
acclamation and voted on lv narties not en
titled to vote. In fact Mr. Editor there were
men voting there who were not 21 hours off
a British ship. The nomination of Street
Supt. was balloted for, and when the t-llers
who were appointed by the chair came to
count the vote as many as seven ucxets in a
bunch were taken out in favor of my oppo
nent. JOHN McCANN.
Astobu, Obkoon, Dec,
To tlie Citizen of Asteria:
At the request of Mr. W. J. Barry, we
this day investigated the charges lately
circulated in this community by Mr.
Chas. Hanwn against said Barry, viz:
lit. That while Barry was Chief of
Police in 1881, he, Hansen paid to Barry
$20 as bail for "Win. Uhnck and John
Knutson, and that said money had not
been accounted for by Barry t and
2d. That on another occasion be, Han
sen paid Barry the sum of $20 as bail
for one Henry Olsen, which was not ac
counted for by Mr. Barry.
We find in reference to the first charg
es the records of the Police court show
that the money was paid into court by
Mr. Barry and was forfeited to the city.
As to the second charge Mr. Barry
claims that only $5 was paid to him, and
that it was paid on the fth dny of July,
1881, while Mr. Hansen asserts that he
paid the $20 on the 23d day of Jnly, 1831.
The records of the Police court do not
show that there were any arrests made
on the 23d day of July, 1881; but it does
appear therefrom that Henry Olsen was
arrested and let out on $5 bail on the
oth day of July, 1831, and that said sum
was paid into court and forfeited to the
city, and Mr. Hansen's own private
books show that on said 5th day of July,
1631, he paid'$5 to the jail," which sum
is in said Olsen's account and the en
tries in his book of July 23d, 1831, do
not show any payment to the jail" or
for bail for said Olsen.
And we are fully satisfied from the
evidence that there is no foundation
whatever for either of the charges.
