But those.

Forthwith they are peopled for man by new toes! The stars keep their secrets, the earth hides her own, Aud bold must the man he that braves the Unknown. Not a truth has to art or to science been glveu, But brows have ached for it, aud souls toiled aud striveu: Aud many have striveu aud many have tailed, A nd many died, slain by the truth they assailed; But when Man hath tamed Nature, asserted his place And dominion, behold! he Is brought face to face W i t h a n e w f o c himself! Nor may man on his shield Ever rest, for his foe is forever afield.

T h e present age is an age of readers, an age of papers, periodicals a n d books. The public mind, tastes and morals are swayed by the current literature of t h e day. The newspaper is the criterion for a great m a n y people. i>o matter w h a t statements it may make, no matter w h a t figures it may give, no matter w h a t theories jD may set until, all are accepted by a large class as settled facts and piincipleu.j This is Hue more particularly a m o n g the poor and uneducated, t h e very ones who more than others need plain statements a n d honest, lucid argument. T h u s the

press becomes the most powerful factor in our government. T h e universal tendency of civilization today is toward democracy. Nineteenth century democracy rests upon I the political equality of all, and the inalienable right of the majority to rule. It may indeed differ in its workings according to history a n d national temperament, but under whatever variety ol form it rests essentially upon these two principles. This system of g o v e r n m e n t may meet our approval, because it is t h e only just plan of social organism, or, we m a y dislike it because


T H E CRESCENT. it embodies a false theory of man in society, often giving dominion to t h a t p a r t of h u m a n i t y which U least able to rule. B u t whether we like or dislike it, there it stands as the present and undeniable condition of the world's political order. An appeal to n u m b e r s is t h e court of final decision. "Demos is K i n g . " A n d now t h e question arises as to who shall train up this uncultured monarch in the ways of knowledge and truth. W h o shall lead t h e m into wisdom's ways. T h e importance of such teaching is manifest to all, when we remember t h a t the majority of people have little time aside from their daily labors for self instruction. H e n c e but comparatively few do more than apply the principle of mere common sense to t h e settlement of the great political questions t h a t are constantly arising. Locke says, "One or two rules upon which their conclusions depend, in most men, have governed all their thoughts; take these away and their understanding is completely at a non plus.'' BuJ these rules ordinarily are not sufficient for the deep questions of moral, social a n d political economy. Suppose we admit t h a t a reasonable a m o u n t of common sense is used in t h e settlement of the questions, or agree with Gladstone when he says, "Trust of the people tempered with prudence is t h e principle t h a t should guide the statesman," or accept t h a t other m u c h abused expression, " T h e voice of the people is the voice of God," y e t we

m u s t a d m i t t h a t an appeal to the people on most questions is an appeal to universal ignorance. Politics is a science as much as a n y other branch of learning, and in order to be understood must be studied in nil its bearings. Many moral questions are equally as intricate. I n order for a people to treat these correctly they must become informed. I repeat the question, " w h o is to furnish the information?" T h e prexk has assumed the i m p o r t a n t office, one which was formerly held by priests alone, later a d u t y of those in t h e pulpit. The newspapers and journals of t h e land are now the leaders and instructors of the people. The press is by no means a secondary power. ft has usurped t h e fuctions of other agencies and taken upon itself the direction of t h e intellectual and moral destinies of t h e civilized world. I n its largest sense the press is, jfter speech, t h e most powerful influence wielded by m a n . This power exerted in t h e right direction has in it the possibilities of great good, but if used to disseminate false principles or doctrines, it posseses still greater possibilities for evil. The rights of the journalist is expressed in t h a t oft repented term, "Freedom of the press. 1 ' - e may indeed lawfully claim the utmost liberty. B u t this should not be unconditioned. If there is one principle in our government of which we are more proud t h a n another it is this principle of freedom. If there

T H E CRESCENT. is one word we more gladly reiterate t h a n another, it is t h a t word which thrills t h e heart of every Americanâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; Liberty. Daily we hear it from pulpit a u d platform, yet how few understand its real meaning. I n its broadest sense liberty means t h e power of doing as we choose. B u t in its deepest m e a n i n g , it is t h e power of m a k i n g a right choice. T h e power of saying ' I will' or 'I will not,' wus implanted m us by t h e Creator a n d we have such perfect coutroll over it t h a t not even God himself can m a k e us say 'no,' when we choose to say 'yes.' Yet we can be restrained from the full exercise of this power w h e n it interferes with t h e public safety. We m a y have w h a t opinions we choose. Yet we m a y be prohibited from expressing t h e m . Ours is a free country not because we have no laws, but because the actions of t h e individuals are governed by t h e common good. I n like m a n n e r t h e n should t h e 'preaa' be restricted. I t should have unrestrained freedom as long as it is acting in the right, but here should the line he drawn, and t h e edict of " t h u s far a n d no farther," should go forth as t h e universal sentiment. Unlimited freedom of the press is one of t h e most dangerous a n d absurd ideas held by t h e public to-day. Yet this is practically w h a t we have. This privilege g r a u t s opportunity for publishing socialistic or immoral ideas unhindered. B y every considerate m a n t h e disemiuation of ideas indiscriminately must be con ced-

ed as deleterious to the welfare of a n y c o m m u n i t y . T h e constant reading of atheistic or socialistic literature will ultimately tend to shake the faith and alter the convictions of the strongest minded. I s it not certainly the d u t y of t h e state to protect the rights of its citizens in this most sacred line? T h e freedom of speech and of the press, which is t h e same only perhaps the more e n d u r i n g and far reaching, because of its never ceasing reverberation is one of the safe guards of our republic. B y its influence is t h e h a n d of t h e evil doer often stayed. The fear of being made known to the world has r e strained m a n y from transgression. T h e good resulting from this liberty so far out weighs t h e evil t h a t we would n o t change it, if we could. I t is not t h e liberty t h a t we wish to restrict but its abuse. There are two principle abuses to which the press is prone. T h e first springs from a desire.to please rather t h a n to instruct, the second is its use for sinister motives, perhaps the first arises through necessity, as it is one of the facts of t h e journalistic field t h a t there m u s t be readers if t h e paper survive, ami these m a y n o t be secured unless the opinions set forth in some measure meet t h e approval of t h e reader, hence it is not uncommon for the editor to pander to the current ideas however erroneous they m a y be, instead of trying to direct aright t h e ignorant and deluded public, cost w h a t it will. The second is seen where the

Perhaps t h e logic employed by t h e editors of these papers is t h a t these men are always willing to pay well, a u d as college papers ure (notoriously) poor it is not r i g h t to refuse such a source of income. Most colleges have rules prohibiting t h e use of tobucco about t h e school buildings, a n d m a n y , us our own, forbid its use entirely, y e t t h e pupers representing m a n y of them advertise the very article prohibited.

THE CRESCENT. ATHLETIC. You are doubtless aware that the girls of America are recognizing the fact that to btvhealthy is, like cleanliness, "next to godliness;" aud therefore physical training is getting to be very popular. Yet students are leaving the schools of America, well trained mentally and very poorly trained physically. Please notice three very important points. First, it is very evident that we cannot have schools without students; second, we cannot have students without health; and third, we cannot have good health without exercise. The girls of this school, have had very little systematic exercises for some time. When they attempt anything of the kind, only a few can take part, on account of not having sufficient room. Gymnastics train the body to act in accordance to the will, or, in other words, physical training means to develop the brain and nerve power. The majority of girls of Pacific College, now ask for a girls' gymnasium in which we can have systematic gymnastic exercises. If we were carpenters perhaps we would have the wood-shed moved, so as to open into the hall, or girls cloak room. Then we would put in a floor, and use it for the room needed. As it is, we appeal to the higher authority for plans and help on this subject. Atja very small cost, a room could be fitted up, which would be of great ad-

vantage to the college. In a short time the school could have the reputation of "physical culture of a high grade," which would induce new students to come in, and it would soon bring back the money spent for the building. We would like to introduce the wand exercise this term, the dumb bells during the winter term, and the Indian clubs the spring term. These things are not very expensive, and the exercises will be of lasting ben-, ellt to the girls. Then, at the close of the year, we could give some very interesting exercises ou Field day. M. C.
