Founder of the "People" Dies

Post by Karen on Sat 26 Mar 2011 - 16:06

NOTED SECRET TREATY.

DEATH OF A BARONET WHO REVEALED IT.

Sir William Thomas Madge, Bt., who was connected with the "Globe" newspaper for 42 years, as clerk, publisher, and manager, and afterwards was proprietor from 1912 to 1914, died at his home in Putney on Saturday, at the age of eighty-two. He was created a baronet in 1919.
He founded the "People" newspaper in 1881, and brought it into prominence on one occasion by going to Whitechapel when news arrived of two "Jack the Ripper" murders, investigating the crimes, and writing a full account of them.
Sir William was also responsible for publishing in the "Globe" in 1878, a secret treaty which Lord Salisbury had made with Russia. Lord Salisbury at first denied that there was such a treaty. The treaty had been memorised by a Foreign Office clerk, who supplied it to the "Globe." The clerk was prosecuted, but the prosecution failed, as it was not then an offence to publish official secrets. The "Official Secrets Act" was afterwards passed.
The heir to the baronetcy is Mr. Frank William Madge, a grandson, who is in his thirtieth year.
