fortunate for me that the I request was to write about the editors problems rather than to solve them My task is easy The editor himself is a problem and often one which it is difficult for the brethren to solve How came he to be editor anyhow Who selected him What fitness has he exhibited for the position How can he be managed How can pressure be brought to bear on him that will keep himin line How can he be eliminated And so on One of the editors problems is to get the brethren to believe he is the right man in the right place Nothing more conclusively proves the topsyturviness of the world t than the patent fact that the wrong persons occupy the positions Peo pIe without money would do so much better with wealth if they only had it than the rich people do It only the poor man had the money no deserving person would be allowed to be in want and no good cause would be allowed to suffer for lack of means Who can listen to poor people talk without being convinced tint the wrong ones have the money Then the wrong people are parents It is notorious that those who have no children know vastly more how to rear children than do lathers and mothers Hence the the wrong people are parents We see this principle illustrated in all directions but we find its most pointed and most pungent illustration in the case of editors Charles Dudley Warner said that in his travels over the United States he found many people unable to take a paper but he never found anybody unable to edit one Another problem of the editor is to accommodate sonic friends with out giving offense to others A friendasks that a certain sort of article be published or that his hobby be advocated Others have made the identical request and have been refused Now to refuse this friend is to alienate him while to grant the request is to t fend all to whom similar requests have been denied A railroad presi dent can give a free pass to one friendand refuse many others for they never know in all probability of the pass he has given But the editor cannot grant a favor to one which he declines to another without telling on himself since his columns are open to all Still another problem is to ad just the compliments If the edi tor compliments all the brethren alike none of them are pleased be cause no one feels that he is on a par with the rest Each one must have special compliments When the editor thinks he has paid a specially handsome compliment he is liable to find that the subject feels he deserved a much finer compliment while others are disgusted that the editor should praise that fellow so extravagantly and over look many greatly superior to him It has been well said that editors are men who make other peoples reputations at the expense of their own Then too the makeup of the s paper involves problems If too much is said on this subject or too little on that fault is found If the editor is mild in his utterances he is regarded as nambynanibj and insipid If however he is sharp and incisive he is charged with having a bad spirit and with being too belligerent If he stands squarely for certain prindples he is said to he narrow bigoted intolerant and opposed to progress while if he stands squarely for nothing he is milk and cider without principle and coward ly If he publishes articles with which he does not agree then theI offended subscribers write Stop my paper I will not take a paper that publishes such articles as that But if he refuses to publish articles with which he does not agree then he is making the paper his per sonal organ is unfair and is opposed to free speech etc Then if the editor really says ah tLing he is liable to be misunder stood No mans utterances are passedupon by such a variety of minds Thackeray in his Round abouts Papers gives a very amus ing account of some of his trials as editor of Cornhill Magazine He speaks of referring to a redhaired washerwoman and of getting an angry letter spying Sir in stat ing that the majority of washer women are red haired you are jar and you had better not speak of ladies who are immeasurably your superiors He closes his dis cussion with the following deliverance Out of mere malignity I suppose there is no man who would like to make enemies But here in this editorial business you cant do otherwise and a queer sad trange bitter thought it is that must Icross the mind of man a public man Do what I will be innocent or spiteful be generous or cruel there are A and B and C and D who will hate me to the end of the chapter the chapters endto the finis of the patewhen hate and envy and fortune and disappointment shall he over Yet there are many brethren so anxious to be editors that they cannot wait for vacancies but are constrained to start papers of their own It is a problem with editors to trim down long articles to reason able dimensions and lest I add to Editor Folks problems of this sort I mention but one more How to treat writers who wish pay for their articles especially if the said articles are poems is a problem One lady writes that she has three orphan children and a sick mother to provide for and surely we will not decline her arti cle to which she has devoted so much time and care To refuse to use her article is to show ones self utterly lost to all noble emotion and to proclaim ones self a moral monster Yet the article is far be lw the standard for a firstclass paper A prominent man of wide influence has a niece whom he wishes to encourage to write and to support herself by her pen for giftsiflongs toa large and powerful fami ly and her article is urged To refuse it shows that the editor is an enemy of this great family and is an ingrate in view of the many J J favor he has received from the members of the connection Is i- tnt 3 strange that more editors do not go to lunatic asylums But there must be compensations else we would not find so many of such 9Butthe compensations That pleasant task is left to other hands Baptist and Reflector FORGET
