The editor desires\ to express his
sincere thanks to the Rood people of
Old Ford for the many rourtcsles ex
tended to him yesterday, occasioned I
by his visit to that section to hear the
fttldress of Mr. Joyner. _ j

t-he many expressions of good will
for himself and best wishes for the
success of the Dally News, made him
feel that he wag indeed anions
friends.
Every hour among these good peo
ple was well sp**:it. so much so his
departure carried with It nothing but
genuine regret. A groat fnrtire is ;n I
Jjloro for Old Ford and Its people, I

?If the people of any iioijrmunlty |
ucery nfi loyal -to the interests of their"'
town or cKy as the newspapers, says
tiie Spring tield ; 1 O. ) News, what ji
ip lend Id competition this country
would see.
But they are not. Nor Is any con
siderable part of the people. Nor are
ill the business men or the manu
facturers. That town succeeds just
In proportion to the zeal with which
Its leading citizens bai-k up the pa
triotism of Its newspaper?.
The trua newspaper devotes col
umns and pages of space to boosting
the city in wi*lc~h it Is published. The
most Ipyal and devoted boosters of
any city are found In Its newspaper
offices. Th*re is a sneering class of
people In overy city who, finding no
good in anything, decry the newspu
per? an mongers of sensailons and as
destroyers of character.
They demand the news, aud the
newspaper that is a faithful mirror
hold^up to its readers the reflection
of their own doings. If the commu
nity kle bad Its newspaper pages will
show it. If It Is good its news ar-,
tides wi|l show it.
But the paper Itself ? It Is far In
advance of the procession. With
liere and there a yellow exception it
stands for the better things, stands
unceasingly for the bettermept of
business conditions, constantly seeks
to bring more business to the town.
Better than that.. It stands for the
^horal upbuilding of its citizenship.
"stan'diTTo'r belter civic" conditions.'
? In many cities the editors have an
uphill task, and a lonesome one.
There are times when -the most de
vil I I'll r.pwsp.-uirr m ?n will loan faith
In the value of publicity. But hon
est publicity never fails, and in the
end~honest and enthusiastic devotion
to a city's Interests will awaken suf
ficient spirit among the people ac
tually to accomplish things.
