Journalistic. [Newspaper Article] — The Clarence River Advocate — 22 February 1898

Journalistic. Fob some timo past a rumor has been afloat anent tho establishment of a second newspaper in Maclean — to fill (as a certain 'select' few put it) 'a long fol want.' If the proposed newspaper guarantees tho absence of consistency and a conscience, and is prepared to extol tne actions ot a couple ot localhghts who object to straighforward criticism in iholr public capacities, and shuts its eyes to the woll-being of the public in general, then wo havo no hesitation in saying that a long felt want will be supplied by its appearance. J3ut if it is not prepared to run ou these lines, wo advise the intending publisher to strike out for Klondyko, St. Petersburg, or Fiddlers' Green— anywhoro but Macioan, although it would perhaps be some consolation to know that two new paper proprietors had a hard struggle to livo on the smell of an oil rag. For the present the Advocate will adhero to its well-known straightforward policy.
