A TIME FOR PUBLICITY
A wcgk ago one of. the detectives for the Southern Paclfc
coaipany ws jn iDflngefik to 'investigate tjie najter of car
Windows being broken by small boys.
A few days, ago the city and sclipol authorities were grapplng
with the problem of ihe smajl boys yho were gpin into dther
people's yards and. stealing strawberries.
Last week a number, of young women women old eugh
to know better were brought into he recoier's'cqurb because
they haQ persisted n breaking down shrubbery in other peppje's
yards while helping themselves to rfpwers tpat did noVberpn'to
them. A gentle flint had; been conveyed through' the paper a
little time before that, but they "did not heed.
Warnings, and gentle hints have not sulliced. Plain publicity
is a cure tha i remarkably efficacious at times, and the News
hereby announces is intention to publish all cales thai' get into
the local courts. The News nevjr "has, and never expects to
publish, gossip and scandal, but court records are public property,
and the transactions, of the courts are the business of the whole
people. A kindly feeling for the erring often impels silence when
publicity was. due. The individual, however, is not supreme jn
the state or city. The common good is the thing to be sought
Disregard o private rights is against the common good, and
therefore measures should be taken that will instill a respect
for the proper rights Qf each citizen. If publicity will do it, The
News is ready to join with the officers of the law.
The qp.e sure way to keep mention of aft unpleasant event
out of The ?Iews is to avoid doing that which' would'get4 one into
the clutches of the law.

Verily, an almost unbelievable contradiction, which might well
cause Disraeli to lie uneasy in the peaceful, shadows of 'Vysetmin-
ster Abtoey and break the repose or Alexander I. in the Kremlin.
And these operations have been undertaken at this stage
o the general war because of a commercial necessity, the same
necessity which has been the real motive beneath all the senti

the allied fleet are beating down the barrier tha,t is keeping the
