NEWS SUPPRESSION A MISTAKE
WHAT THE COMMERCIAL CLUB MIGHT DO
Publicity seems to be a word that has dropped out of
the vocabularies of the warring nations. One and all
they censor all news, not only that sent abroad but that
for home use, and perhaps the latter the more thoroughly.
Germany, so far as the news allowed to reach the
world is concerned, is less secretive than the others, but
her news statements are pretty closely watched and ex
purgated before being put on the wires. However, the
war news coming from Berlin seems more reliable than
any other. France comes next, but is more secretive,
while England goes the limit and sends out only such
stuff as she thinks will not damage her standing in other
countries. Of course there is one class of events that it
is right to keep silent about, and that is those which have
not yet taken place. What the army proposes doing is
an entirely different thing from what the army has done.
The latter is legitimate news that the world is entitled to
know, and the people of the country interested are
especially entitled to be informed about.
England utterly ignores her own people, who actually
know less about what is going on at the various fronts
than we on this side the pond know. The British govern
ment has always refused to take the people into its con
fidence and let them know what has been done. This is
the greatest mistake any government can make. If it
wants its citizens solidly with it it must let them under
stand the situation, whether it is good or bad. A victory
is published broadcast, but a defeat, at first denied, is
admitted on the homeopathic plan a little at a time, and
finally when it is learned, instead of arousing the masses
to greater effort it causes a feeling of soreness and dis
gust. The widest publicity, and the exact truth as to the
results of battles would do more to arouse England than
any one thing the government could do. No government
can reasonably bo expected to be trusted by its people
whom it refuses to trust.
Some of the practical things the Commercial club
might do would be to work to hasten construction of the
electric road from Mount Angel to the city. President
Dimick, of the railway company, has stated that the road
expected to come on to Salem, and the date set for be
ginning work on the extension is several months overdue
now. That road would mean new business for Salem and
the higher development of an important section of
Another thing the Commercial club should not lose
sight of is the fact that when flax weaving mills are
established in the Willamette valley they should be
located at Salem, when the industry has been promoted
and the centre ot the territory which will in the future
be devoted to flax growing. It is not too early now to be
gin planning to secure the payroll industries which should
in due sequence follow the initial experiments now in
There are practical things of far more benefit than
"surveys" to ascertain facts that are of no particular
benefit because conditions are generally well known any
way, or "playground" movements which are mainly fads
which give jobs to more people at the expense of an al
ready over-burdened tax-paying public. The commercial
club should work for those things which mean develop
ment for the country and payrolls for the city.
The senate yesterday afternoon confirmed the ap
pointment of Newton D. Baker as secretary of war. From
the new secretary's statements since the appointment he
is that kind of a pacificist who believes in maintaining
peace even if we have to go to war to secure it. He says
he is for peace at "almost" any price, but draws the line
at smirching the national honor in that behalf.
Senator Chamberlain voted against the president in
the final show down over the Gore resolution regarding
warning Americans against travelling on armed vessels,
and yesterday came the report that he is lined up with a
boom for Champ Clark for the democratic nomination
for the presidency. Is there any connection between the
England is evidently following in the footsteps of
General Butler in her ideas of what is contraband. Butler
suggested the confiscation of slaves during the civil war
by declaring them contraband. England is declaring
anything contraband that she takes a notion to, but has
kindly told us that she will let her agents here examine
cargoes Americans intend shipping and tell the shipper
whether England will permit him to ship them. She
kindly adds that "there is no absolute guarantee of im
munity under this plan." In other words if she feels like
seizing them after they have started on their voyage of
course she will do so.
The Chinese tong war has broken out again in San
Francisco and will soon, no doubt, spread to the other
cities of the coast. When peace was declared recently no
money was put up as is the usual Chinese custom on
such occasions and by Chinese law, if there is such a
thing the argument was probably considered as not
General Grant was far from talkative, hence when he
spoke he usually said something. At one time, just before
the presidential nominating convention met, some of his
political friends were a trifle shaky as to the outcome,
saying the democrats had a fine supply of campaign
thunder. "Oh don't worry about that," said Ulycses,
"You can always depend on the democrats doing the
wrong thing at the right time."
Under the civil service rules a government job is a
long one. The great trouble with these though is that
any job that is worth having is unknown to the list.
Wage earners are under civil service rules, but where
there is a salary, that is loft for the senators or congress
men to pass out among their friends as a reward for
services yet to come.
