The natural Impulse of even intelligent
citizens when a public Journal Is misled
Into the commission of a wrong, Is to
declaim against the general licentious
ness of the public press, and In this the
greatest Injustice is done to all reputable
newspapers. People speak of the licen
tiousness of the press from what they sen
In Its columns, but they do not speak,
because they do not know, of the vastly
greater amount of sensational articles
founded on truth, which might be pub
lished with entire Justice to the Impli
cated parties, but which are dally sup
pressed by editors, solely because such
publications would wantonly wound Inno
cent parties and at times overthrow
credit. There is not a day In the week
that the men responsible for the opinions
of clean newspapers are not compelled to
consider the question of publishing Or
suppressing facts which are entirely
proper for public Information, but which,
If printed, would do greater harm to the
Innocent than good to the public.
Of this Important duty of editors the
public have little knowledge, and, being
unknown, It Is thoughtlessly assumed
that the great aim of every enterprising
newspaper man is to fling sensutions be
fore tho public regardless of their truth,
when In point of fact they suppress vastly
more than they print. There are dozens
of highly reputable citizens of Astoria
and of every community In the whole
country, who could feelingly testify to the
Integrity with which honest editors sac
rifice important and legitimate news In
the Interest of the peace of homes and the
safety and credit of individuals and Insti
tutions. Let those who assail the licen
tiousness of the press take pause to In
quire Into the alms and methods of true
American Journalism. . If they shall do
so, there would be a more Just Judgment
of the generous fidelity of editors to the
hlghost Interests of the community.
With the low and filthy press of the
country It Is different. For that kind of
licentiousness there Is only one remedy.
Let it alone. If people would not sup
port vile publications, those publications
would not exist.
WHAT THEY BHOULD DO.
Now that congress Is well undei way
with Its work there are two subjects of
paramount Importance which demand
prompt attention. One of them Is
the serious deficiency of revenue.
The lust congress thought It had provided
enough.' But one of the measures It re
lied upon was the lnoome tax, which
would have yielded fifty or sixty millions.
Hut the courts held that the bill was
plainly constitutional, as the Republicans
In congress had oontanded It was, and as
most intelligent ' Democrats believed It
was. It was passed In form to please
Populists and Democrats of socialistic
sympathies regardless of the constitution,
The result Is there Is a lack of revenue,
and unless congress acts It will be nooes
sury for the president to sell more bonds
for gold, and thus swell the national debt
to keep the government going, and to re
deem demand notes. It Is not best for
Republicans In congress to refuse to help
provide necessary revenue on account of
tho Democratic lilunder of the last con
gress In regard to their unconstitutional
Income tax. Tharo will be time enough
for that during next year's campaign.
At present both parties should co-operate
In stopping the deficiency leak. Tho
country does not want them to ncgloci
that duty and spend their time In making
platforms and records for next year's
The house is Republican, the senate un
certain, nnd the president a Democrat.
Neither side can run things exactly to
suit Itself. The Republicans must wait
till March 4, before they can get a
president of their own. Therefore the
best ilnn to raise more revenue Is one on
which both Republicans and Democrats
Jt la neeosnary also for congress to do
sumethlnjr to put an end to thut vicious
system which has thrown on the treasury
the duly of supplying tho demand of
Merchants, bankers, brokers, Importers,
and all other for gold. The dangers of

reissuing them, then aguln redeem them,

the nomination was made and tiecbtred

he had to work night and day to do It.
The Republicans of Astoria remember it.
They never had a better chance than now
to -kill off this vile Incubus that has been
hanging round the neck of the party for
years. If he be defeated in the present
campaign, and thrown down with his
shameful record on top of him, one of
the dirtiest figures In Astoria's political
history will vanish from the field forever.

That Things Are Not Always What They
Seem Evidenced In This Ca.ie.

The deceptions to which so many of the
fo-called upp-r crust resort to diacharrro

been the accepted custom of brides who
receive mary dulplcate presents to ex

they were purchased. When the articles
have not been narked or defaced in any

A volume might be written on the reve

brought about. It has been the un

in an unlucky moment, took this appar

had more immediate need. When the
