A newspaper, if it has any brains,
conscience and muscle behind it,
must continually decide between do-
ing its duty and injuring its pocket,
in any position besides that of editor,
j the public is able to separate the in-
| dividual from the collective citizen.
But if an editor does not please them,
i it is at his pocket book they aim.
Thus it is the newspapers learn who
their friends are. The man who
j reads the newspaper and admires it
| all the year round, yet gives his busi-
ness support to some other concern,
| whose principles or actions of its edi-
[ tor he detests is not a friend to the
former newspaper. Admiration alone
will not run a newspaper. There are
too many who expect an editor to
slave in defense of their pet notions
and hobbles, advocate their views
against opposition, and cooly with-
hold the business support by which
alone a country newspaper can live.
Talk about a paper having a pub-
lic duty to perform, and an editor
having to work for his principles is
cheap when others stand back and
extend a hike-warm nutrality. The
result is the ed'tor may starve while
laboring for his principles and the
cause of right and justice, which they
admire but do not support. Ex.

The Volksblatt, El Reno's progres-
sive German paper has the following
to say concerning the Peoples Press:
"We are glad to inform our read-
ers that the people of El Reno now
has an opportunity to read a 'free
press.' The name of this new ven-
ture is the Peoples Press. It is an
organ of the Democratic party and
is published by our old friend T. F.
Hensley and his two sons. Mr. Hen-
sley is one of the most widely known
and popular newspaper men in the
state. The Press is issued every
evening, and is so full of good read-
ing that nearly everybody lines up at
the book store to get the first, one
off the press. We wish the new paper
every success in its good work for
Uenold Wolf, the well known drama-
tic authority of the New York Morning
Telegraph, declared "The <}irl from
Hector's" the most entertaining produc-
tion he had ever witnessed. In his re-
view of the piece the morning follow-
ing its premiere at Weber's Music Hall,
in New York he said: "I have sc. 11
it once only—only once, naturally—but
I shall see it many times before it
quits New York. It should have a
record run." Mr. Wolf's prophecy
came true for "The (lirl from Rector's"
remained at Weber's for over 300
nights. At the El Reno theater soon.

District court is in session this week
with his Honor Judge J. J. Carney of
El Reno on the bench. J. M. Harkin
is court reporter for .ludge Carney. It
seems his honor is disbarred from hear-
ing the Vance case and it may not
come to trial at this session though it
is anticipated that Judge Brown will
be back in time.
Jl. H. Harrelson of El Reno, is now
located with the Stewart Lumber com-
pany, taking the place of R. A. Troxel.
Mr. Harrelson is expecting his family
the last of the week.
