July 5, 1929

 

An abdication,

and a bike ride home

 

From the Guardian archive

 

Friday July 5, 1929

Guardian

 

Five days after briefly announcing CP Scott's retirement, the paper carried this report on an inside news page:

We quote the following further comments from the press: New York Herald Tribune. "The 'Manchester Guardian' was founded by John Edward Taylor in 1821, and for fifty-seven of the intervening 108 years Taylor's nephew, Mr CP Scott, has been its editor.

"The 'Manchester Guardian' was a great paper before young CP Scott, 25 years old and just three years out of Oxford, became its editor in 1872, but in the intervening decades it has achieved much higher distinction. All over the world when men speak of standards in journalism they must take the Manchester Guardian into consideration.

He has written day after day the leaders. He read every proof, and when "or " was used for "nor" he scribbled a note to the sub-editor. When the paper was put to bed at midnight Mr Scott, until he was well past seventy-five, mounted his bicycle and rode five miles home.

Scott showed his courage when he boldly defied his Government and denounced its course throughout the Boer War, so that police had to mount guard at his office and his home."

Daily Herald: "Mr Scott has just received a congratulatory message from the King. President Wilson, who, when on his visit to this country ten years ago, told American correspondents that "the most interesting man he had met in England was Scott of the 'Guardian.' "

British Weekly: "The quality of this influence is quite easily and simply stated. It is the influence of character."

Christian World: "Mr CP Scott's resignation is an event like the abdication of a Monarch."

Neue Freie Presse (Vienna): "Through his fight against the unjust clauses of the Versailles Treaty, his intervention in the interest of real peace end understanding and through his fearless exposure of British, French and Belgian colonial scandals, he has often come into conflict with public opinion in his own country."

Hirlap (Budapest): "During the 57 years of his editorship the 'Manchester Guardian' strove for objectivity, and this virtue the paper employed in connection with everybody and everything even if it concerned its own party.

When during the Premiership of Mr Lloyd George the publishers of newspapers were one after the other created viscounts and barons, a timid knock was tried at the door of Mr Scott. Yet he never accepted any rank or distinction."

A day of rhapsody for newspapers

 

From the Guardian archive

 

Saturday June 30, 1855

Guardian

 

As the bill for the abolition of the compulsory stamp duty on newspapers has now passed the House of Commons, we see no reason to abstain from making an announcement which we withheld so long as the success of the measure now before parliament remained in doubt.

Shortly after the new law shall have come into operation, most probably at the commencement of July, the Guardian will become a DAILY PAPER, and the price (when unstamped) will be Twopence, instead of Fivepence, as at present; in other words, we shall furnish our readers with six papers per week for a shilling, instead of two for tenpence.

The Newspaper Stamp Act - Will it Realise Public Expectations?

Today the press, from duty free,
Appears on every side;
Whilst competition reigns around,
And news is scattered wide.
A perfect flood of papers rise,
Like breakers in the storm,
Of every size - at every price -
And every make and form.

We know not what results may rise,
Of failure or success,
From this important privilege,
Conceded to the press;
But let us hope it will extend
Advantages around,
And stand the great palladium
Of Britain's sacred ground!

The press it has a trumpet-voice,
Which sounds from shore to shore;
It tells the world - the mighty world,
The treasures of each store:
It tells of Hyam's warehouse vast,
His efforts and success,
And does it not expatiate
Upon his wondrous dress?'

In children's dress the stock superb,
For midsummer excites
That feeling on the public mind
Which pleases and delights:
Splendour and cheapness both combine,
With fashion and display,
Whilst there you see the greatest choice,
This summer holiday!

B. HYAM, National Tailor, Clothier, Hatter, Cap Manufacturer, Hosier, and Outfitter, 86 and 88, Market-street, Manchester. Travelling cushions, pillows, urinals,&c.

HELLEWELL's, 15, 17, 19, 21, Corporation-street. Dust and rain coats, for hot weather. Electric india rubber combs. Nursing aprons, Cot and Crib Sheets.
