meeting, January 2tUh, by M. ..
Brown, of the Beatrice Express.
"I come to bury Caesar, not to praiss
him." When Mark Antony dropped
these wordy adroitly into the inilam
maltle Itoman populace, the effect had
heen carefully studied. The burial of
Cii'sar, as the loss of a friend, mattered
little to him. lie was possessed of
the ambition to succeed the dead dic
tator, and his praise was not to glori
fy the memory of the Kouiau hero, but
to magnify his own popularity, for
the opportunity presented.
Jl'STICE TO JOt;ilNAMSM.
Your orator comes not as Antony
went to the funeral of Cicsar. He
conn not hero to bury our profession
a greater than was ever t'a'Har nor
to piaise where piaiso i.i undeserved;
nor yet to gain a point by sprinkling
the waters of flattery upon the little
rootlets of our vanities. Indeed, it is
not quite clear why ho should be here
at all, to talk to you of journalism, or
any other lofty theme, when he should
b instead a hearer, a listener at the
feet of seniors. Especially does your
orator feel how trying is his position
when recalling the able, the polished,
the scholarly oration last delivered he
fore this association by tho distin
guished brother and journalist the
I km. Charles H. Gere. But what will
be here lacking iu elegance of dicta
tion, may perhaps be made up by di
reelnci-s of expression, and an earnest
ness born of a love of a profession as
yet in the toddling days of infancy,
with a future as broad as the universe,
and as boundless as the heavens.

And as the newspaper has grown nu

and influence. This much is certain.

Thus wrote Cpwper, iroucically it
would seem, yet iu this day ut least
the sentiment is apt. An honored cit

a few years ago:
"The press is the anchor by which
our free institutions are moored. Tv

of journalism, in its narrowest seiibe,
is, that which does must affect our
present personal necessities.
You and each of you who have en
dured tho hardships attendant upon
establishing a newspaper, know to.i
well how trilling is the recompense
of capital invested, for sweat of brow,
aim wear of brain, and waste of phys
ical energy. Ye who have tolled to
8?rvo the public, to promote the wel
fare of parties am politicians, to guaid
the interests of coimuunitus, and to
protect tl.e r'ghta of citizens, can have
but one feeling deep down in your
heart of hearts that the laborer has
not been deemed worthy of his hire.
Why this is true, lew there are who
can explain, if indeed they can even
divine It is enough to know that it
is true, und "pity 'tis 'lis true."
The greater faults are born of self
inlerest, the lesser from men's necessi
ties,. The first man - sinned, and he
was nol a journalist, either. His first
oveitact was prompted neither by
necessity or hope of gain. His was
perhaps a pvoptiiir-sa t- do the thing
which was wrong. He had no two
percent notes or cut-throat mortgages
falling due ; no office rent, insurance
policies or taxes to meet; mrcoal bills,
no grocery bills, no mother-in-law to
harass him, no poor relatives to pro
vide for. The only reason he didn't
behave ii,vi3i lf wr.s iimply he didn't.
Hut the annoyances unJ temptations
of tho average newspaper man are ail
that Mr. Adam's were not. No person
understands this better than the poli
tician. Journalism is inseparable
from polities. And it is at this point
that the politician steps in, an.l the
newspaper luse3 its impersonal char
acter and becomes a faction machine
or a personal sheet. Years have pass

It is not necessary that the newspa

ma i should bo a politician, in the

no one knows so well how a newspa

to grind. Men of this class frequently
drift into the proft'sgion. and almost
invariably the newspaper and the pub
lie are the suttereis. Chief among
these are the lawyers. And this serves
as a reminder that the last address de
livered before the association contain
ed a reply to some strictures upon the
press by a distinguished jurist pf the

Let the lawyer make reply.
In that address, the leujiei.cc- io the
bar might have been extended to an
indefinite length. Who is th- politic

wires? Who rills our leg slatures and
congresses? Who packs the lobbies

of the newspaper lies in the. discussion
of principles, not persons; of measure
not men. The tendency to quiet the

- Abraham begat Isaac, and Isaac be
aat Esau, and Esau sold his -birthright
for a mess ot pottage. As Aoraiian
begat Isaac, so has the first phase here
named begotten the second political
journalism; and to sum it up, our juor-
nalistic Lsau has sold his birthplace to
the politician for a very intangible
mess of something without a name.
The politician "takes the pot," and it
is doubtful whether our Esau has even
so much as a mess of pottage. Esau
begat several sons; but the political in
journalism ha3 begotten only one, and
its features are so repulsive mat care
should be taken to prevent a further

From what principle of right does it
derive tho privilege to pollute the

There can be but one answer none
Public ni'-n should be judged by
their records; but tlie "political in
journalism has found it convenient to
descend to the lowest personal plane
to magnify faults into crimes, and
weaknesses into immoralities any
thing to prevent the fulfillment of a
political ambition. As candidates
for edliee, politicians are open to crit
icism. It a public man has failed in
f any ijuty, the newspaper should say
as much, openly aud without dissim
ulation. If a candidate's political
record is bad, let the fact be known
the moment he aspires to office. If
he has committed any act of a public
nature that is manifestly against pub
lic policy, it is the province ot
newspaper to deal vsith him as he de
