JANUARY, 1907. MONTHLY WEATHER REVIEW. IS NOT HONESTY THE WISEST POLICY ? It is wrong to Mutilate or suppress the record of an observation of a phenomenon of nature, but it is also wrong to make a bad use of the record. In fact, it is the misuse of meteorological data, not the observing or publishing, that constitutes a crime against the community. Observation and careful research are to be encouraged as useful. Misrepresentations are to be avoided as harmful. The "Independent Press" as the " Voice of the People " should be not only " Vox Populi " but " Vox Dei ", repressing all cheats and hoaxes, defending the truth and the best interests of the whole nation as against the self-interest of a few.
