THE OXioEDASTLCM MATTER
)tt another place in this issue
there ia priited a letter from Super
intendent La wrencp, of the Oxford
Orphans Asylum. The Standard
very gladly gives epace to Mr. Law
rence's letter and regrete the lack of
epace at hand to 'publish a number
of certificates accompanying said
Without entering into a contro
versy with Mr. Lawrence or any
one else The Standard desires to
impress upon his mind the fact that
this paper did not at all "arraign the
conduct of the Oxford Orphan Asy
lum for cruel and inhuman treat
ment to children etc." There has
always been and always will be, we
presume, a difference cf opinion
among men as to what ought to be
published and what ought not.
The Stakdard did not make
these charges, it did not father them,
bet in its news mission it deemed it
not at all wrong or imprudent to
publish them. And . in the light
now before us, we cannot see that
any injury has been done, but on
the other hand it will bring people
to know tee institution who other
wise have never giyen it any thought
The statements Tee Standard
published were made in public ar.d
- were on their rounds before thi
paper took them up. It did so, not
in a spirit to endorse or deny (for
it did not have the facts on both
sides) but to bring tbeui to that
point where the authorities might
reach them atvd have an opportunity
to make" their own defense and thus
correct any erroneous impression.
If there was error on The Staxd
abd's part, it was an error of the
head and not of the hear:. And, in
leaving this subject, it must be eaid
that The Jstaxdakd has not
changedjts opinion about the wis
dom of publishing the statements of
the little sick boy, of whom lit.
Lawrence himself speaks so well.
The Standard did not quote Ar
We v oulv gladly publish the cer

answers the last question in these
beautiful, truthful words that, com

Here is the brief sentence :
"We see not how anv historian, at
even the remotest distance of future
time can recall the colossal memories
of Gettysburg without shrinking
from the task of disparaging the
sreneralshin of Lee; pitted there
gainst Meade instead of Grant; and
if we follow Lee and bis beaten army
to their last stand, face to face with
Grant there seems to be no escape
from the fact, that the awful frown
of destiny and not the failure of
Lee gave to Grant the final triumph

The fieidsville Review wrote an
editorial on the newspaper dead-beat
and the Statesville Landmark fol
lows it up as follows :
"The Statesville Landmark writes
about the same dead-beac, bnt from
another point of view. Our obser
vation and ei perience hp.ve been euch
as to tell n3 that the Landmark is
right that it baa sized the news
paper deal-beat up pretey accurate

That is an interesting cud veil
written article from the Reicisville
Review, about the dead-beat sub'
scriber. It will touch a responsive
chord i the breast of every news
paper man in the State, as well as in
other lines of business. But tbe
Landmark's experience is .djEei'ent
irotn that of thj Review m one im
portant particer. Our experience
is that of the deadsbeat, instead of
co.nplimenting the paper, is gener
rIJj- a yery exacting individual, in
finitely more eo than the best cash
payiiff subscriber on tbe bo k. It
is tiiliicuifc to get tlio paper up to
the standard of excellence that be
rrqtiires of it, and he is generally
trte with his criticisms. After c
time when you begin to press him
for ctsh, be ib freo to say that the
paper is no account anil tnat he only
takes it as an accomodation to you
feeling it his duty to encourage
editors by subscribing for their paper
even if be never psjs for them.
And if yen should become hard
hearted enough to shut o his free
reading matter entirely, he will be
outraged ; he will be your enemy for
life. He will make it his business
to put in a word against you or your
paper on all occasions; he will tell
how it has deteriorated, he will won
der why people take your sheet at
all; and he will point out the excel
lencies of the rival newspaper. And
all this because you allowed him to
read .the. paper two or three years
withont'pay and then tried to col
lect out of the infernal scoundrel
what'was honestly your due."
