The editor, of the Scranton Times, which is the largest •rid most in- fluential daffy in Pennsylvania, out- side of Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, ~mlebrated the fiftieth anniversary ~fMs journalistic career last week• F iW rd J. Lynett, who is a Catho- li~ received a number of congratu- |atory~ messages from priests as well • s:laymen. One priest writes: "The • n aton. Times is a clean, progres- sive,, int~ellectual family newspaper and: a- powerful •gency fo~ good in all that pertains to the welfare of • ranton and adjacent territory which it covers." Another writes: "The Scranton Times, under your high inspiration,, is a model of clean, respectable," liigh-class, progressive journalism.': Still another writes: "Orestes A. Brownson and St. Paul would award, you the laurel crown of fearless ~hampionship of truth." And an- other: "Although you have preached t~tough your editorials a gospel of prosperity, notwithst~anding, you have never closed your eyes to crass materialism, which pr~osperity en- wrong in opposing direct anti-Chris- tian propaganda. As a matter of fact we made him adhere to his first decision• The same example of subser- viency could be multiplied. They vary only when the convincing edi- tar ~hrows out a "feeler" and then fixes his policy after sorting the mail. A scintillating paper, noted for its enherprise, courage and independ- ence is the Enquire-Sun, of Colum- bus, Georgia. A foe of racial and religious prejudice, as well as po- litical coi'ruption, it sheds lustre on the noble profession of journalism. For denouncing the Klan it lost twenty per cent of its circulation in one year and $42,000 in cash. Last year the paper made money for the first time; it cleared $3,500! Tom Loyless, who recently died, as editor, was as fearless as he was hon- est." He was ever in the first ranks fighting for truth. The noble fam- ily of the Harris,' with which the paper, has been associated, is known throughout the South, where justice is loved and hatred despised. In finance the Enquire-Sun has not - been .successful. In honest journalism it has. No doubt, too, the time will be short when the paper will be a profitable investment. Be- sides capital it will have something more, i. e., a name and a reputation. These ideas were conveyed to our friend on the radical monthly. We received a letter saying it was being forwarded to the writer of the article• We heard nothing further to this day from the writer and the mag- azine printed nothing of the message. A Pacific Coast oil company col- lapses; $34,000,000 vanishes, fifty- three men are indicted, 50,000 small investors have lost their savings. A lawyer of this city is sent to Sing Sing for swindling his clients by forged chattel mortgages on auto- mobiles• An elderly witness weeps as he informs the Judge that he and his brother had invested their life's savings, $450,000, with this man, Deutsch, and had l~)st every penny. A servant in a New Jersey home puts her savings, $16,000, into the stock of a company which holds the secret of a "death ray" that is about to be sold to the United States Government for $1,000,000,000. An eminent musician loses $225,000 through some real estate operations into which he says he was led by lawyers he trusted. The banks, the better business bu- reaus, the New York Attorney Gen- eral and the whole army of those who would protect the community against stock frauds have often dinned into the long ears of the pub- lic the need of vigilance.

The great trouble ~th the majority of the publishers and editors---and they display it in ~ae-fiftieth the time Mr. Lynett served----is that they have ttleir eyes on the cash box and their ears on the mob. Nearly every question that ~mes up is treated this way: "How m~l it affect business?"

He was so restricted he had to these recent instances, though in two of them the losers were led by the lure of greater profits to take their money out of sound investments and put it into questionable ventures.
