As HAs'often been remarked
many men want to get their
names in the ptpeit And otters
vpnt them kept out—the latter
are very modest men; they do
not court public notoriety, al-
though they sometimes get be-
fore the courts on various
charges of infringing the laws.
The records of all the courts
are public property, and the
public wants to know who has
been up. A newspaper pub-
lishes the news, it does not
make it; the proceedings of the
courts is news and as such it it
published throughout the land.
The Banker has no favorites; it
has no friends to screen and no
enemies to publish, it is strictly
impersonal and it publishes the
court proceedings as they ap-
pear on the retfords, add it

all interested that they will save
themselves time and trouble by
not calling at this office to re-
quest their names suppressed.
It will not be done.
