Is now prepared to launch a new at

notwithstanding the fact that every
indication points out that this new pro

partisan members of the house touch-
ing a spark to the fuse which will in
turn Ignite the petard by which they
themselves will be hoist.
According to press dispatches th
"Investigators" have already recom-
mended the removal of two members
of this particular commission tad
While it has not been so staled in posi-
tive terras in the press wires It is a
reasonably safe assumption that the
"two" do not include the Republican
member of that family.
We have not a word to say against
Jene W. Kayser the Republican on
the board. AVe know him personally and
believe him to be a man of strict in-
tegrity and unquestioned honesty of
purpose. We believe him to be a man
who as a busini- man and a straight

shoulders above the rank and file

Republican majority in tho house of

would be one of the two whom the

Ardmore Ardmorrite: On lw-

Anlmoreite desires to extend to
The Dallas News to the Oklaho-
man and to several other metropo-
litan newspapers sincere thanks
for the manner in which their cor-
respondents special men Sent to
cover the Smith-Hainon trial have
handled the mafter in so far as
Ardmore as a city and the people
of Ardmore as AiwrUmi "citizens
Jt is nice of you to say it. The News'
representatives at the trial as well in-'
the editors at the home office Mnimlit
to give an intelligible and connected
account of the trial at Ardmore such
as they conceived their readers justly
entitled to. l'.ut they slso sought to
rise ybove the temptation to indulge
in solid dcsorlptives and mawkish
sentimentalities in a commentary way
as well as to eliminate the unneces-
sary and uncdifyiug details of the testi-
mony except to the extent that they
were required for a connected ucoount.
It is customary for some journalists
and some showmen to indulge in of-
fensive) realism or more offensive sug-
gestivism on the excuse that they are
giving the public "what it wants."
They are untruthful in this. They dress
up a trivial Incident or a scandalous
episode involving people of prominence
and sell it to the prurient portion of
the public on the ground that the pub-
lic demands it. The public does no
such tiling. Vleiousness can be guad-
ed and tinseled and made to sell not
that the public has demanded it but
that the purveyors have made it at
tractive and available. In brief vul-j
gar journalist.'" and pornographic show- j
men have a way of fashioning low mor-
als and marketing thtm for money un-
der the claim that they are but supply-j
ing a demand. They are in fact
creating the demand in order that they
may supply it. To be an impresario
of vice surely is not n business any
American can be proud of. State- Press

THE POWER OF THE PRESS.
The mighty power of the preys i-i
never more ably demonstrated than
when i-nrping critics lay the blame for
evil under the sun at Its doors. Poli-
ticians if tiny meet newspaper oppo-
sition attempt to controvert the influ-
ence by calling the press "subsidized."
Organizations who are not able to put
over some unholy aspiration acou.-: the
press of being in league with some
other organization. Police have often
tried to shift blame for their own un-
worthiness upon the press declaring
that printing of crime storie-s is re-
sponsible for crime. The newspapers
of tho nation have even been accused
of being responsible for the present
restless tendency says the McAlester
To tho credit of the press and to the

tacks have made any great impress
