WHAT NEW YORK THINKS OF US From the New York Evening Post: Those who watch developments in journalism with something of a professional interest will keep their eyes on the experiment which the Philadel phia Public Ledger is making. At a time when there is so much hasty talk about the need of making newspapers cheaper and commoner, the Ledger, under itß new ownership, has boldly •truck out in the opposite direction. It began by abandoning its Sunday "comic"—that feature of American journalism which is so utterly incom prehensible to intelligent foreigners. The Ledger also raised its price to two cents, and set about giving the money's worth. It prints more news than any one-cent paper can, and looks carefully after its quality. Its advertising rules have been revised with a view to correct standards invariably maintained. In a word, the Ledger, instead of flinging itself upon the love of sensation and vulgarity, has made its appeal to intelligent readers. With ample means to strive towards its ideals, and with a large and enlightened policy now established, the good results which the new Ledger has already attained, and the greater ones certain to follow, afford instructive proof that the path of success for American newspapers does not lie solely through the cheap and trivial. New York has discovered the Public Ledger and appreciates it. We are told that more Public Ledgers are sold in New York than any other out-of-town newspaper. There are more than 50,000 peo ple in Philadelphia who are willing to pay twice as much for it as they would have to pay for any other daily paper. There are 50,000 more people who will buy it as soon as they " discover it. Sometimes outsiders have to tell us what a good thing we have right in our own home town. As Washburn-Crosby says: "Eventually—why not now?"
