Kor years tho readers of tho Sac

The years of the writer's activities
In Sacramento have been those ct a

It cannot bo denied that there Is
something fascinating In real news

If newspaper men would only tell
the plain unvarnished truth about
the capacity, the ability and the char
acter of some of our alleged great
ones, many a shock would run down
the American spine.
But there are things that cannot
5e done In honor; confidences given
that must not be broken.
And, from the experience of a life
time, this writer does not hesitate to
ay that newspaper men generally
would cut otr the right hand before
they would break a confidence; be
