THE VALUE OF A NEWSPAPER. A JUDGE'S LECTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Finley Free Press — 16 October 1908
THE VALUE OF A NEWSPAPER. A JUDGE'S LECTURE. Out of. the Great West comes tills Gem of eulogy to modern newspapers. At Boise, Idaho (says "Newspaperdom"), an old, illiterate and inebriated man, named Harry Wharbarton, stole a copy.of the "Statesman" from a subscriber's door. He was arraigned before Justice Day Id^e for the offence, and pleaded guilty. Justice is sometimes peculiarly affected by situations confronting It, and this seems to have been where opportunity for a scathing denunciation and the man "onto his job" met. The petty, miser able man at the bar was perhaps more completely humiliated by the following lecture than he could possibly have been . had the limit of the law been given him: "The offence with which you were charged, and to which you -entered a plea of guilty, was that" of larceny. The* punishment under our statute might te a fine of 300 dollars or, six months in gaol; or both. The market value or the actual cost of the article that you sto'e is most insignifi...
