Alice Fairchild Honore Rosenberg 25 Sep 1905 - SIGO OUTRAGED PUBLIC SENTIMENT DEMANDS THAT...
SIGO OUTRAGED PUBLIC SENTIMENT DEMANDS THAT MRS. FAIR- CHILD-ROSENBERG SHALL NOT STAY. STIRRED OVER THE IHSUL The Brazen Definance of Law and De cency Resented by Hundreds of Citizens — The Theory that She Is Not Liable to Arrest Mere Balder- ash, Lawyers Say. Alice Falrchild Honore Rosenborg must leave lola. Outraged public sen tlmcnt insistently demands it. That a majority of business men aud other citizen's, so overwhelming that none would dare gaiu.say its wishes on any other question, demand it, can bo ascertained ascertained by anyone who honestly wants to know. Conservative business men and hundreds of other citizens of Bucli character that no one dare brand them as busy bodies and professional professional agitators, do not hesitate to brand the proceedings, or lack of proceedings in this case as disgraceful. disgraceful. Scarcely one in ten could be found' who does not say "Alice Fairchild should not be permitted to stay in lola.- The city is stirred over the brazen insult which is flaunted in the face of law and the most common decency. That Alice Falrchild wa» gulltyof running running a bawdy house In lola is established established by court record. . No one presumes, presumes, to deny thls^. A jury has said that she did not fire the bullet which ended the life 'of Charles Gr ^n, the boy whoso tragic death in thelllouoro fhifs is distinct in the memory of lola pcop!c. This closes all opening for a discussion of that phase of the case. No jury decided, no jury can decide whether the young man would hav ended his life if it had not been for the exiotance he led in the flats. This is a question as much discussed since the woman's audacious return to lo! a it was the day of the tragedy. Two reasons for the failure to arrest Mrs. Fairchild Rosenberg and conipe the payment of her line or serving jail sentence are given. The first is that the police court parole makes it impossible to serve the commitment even if the party against whom it is issued returns to town. In other word that a person, whoso fine is suspended on agreemvnt to leave town and with the stipulation that it will be served in the event of returning to the city can come back whenever inclined and not be liable i'i arrest. So many lawyers who stand well in their pro fession, take the opposite view of this law question that the case seems at least |worth testing. The second excuse for permitting the woman to stay in town and not l-=> committed to jail is that of an ap p<al to sympathy. It i.-; said that she cauir> here to lead a right life. Cer taiiily no one would wish 'to turn hand against a woman who has desires and intentions of thia sort. People In general do not seem to believe that this Is her intention. No one can measure another 's motives. Fair minded minded people who are kind and charit able believe, however. tJiat if the woman woman really desired to bid her past a lasting farewell, she would seek another another place in the world than in lola. Here was, and is, hanging over her head a commitment for an unpaid fine of $100 for running a bawdy house, here her name is linked with a horrible tragedy, and here her name is a synonymn for things that are repugnant to decent people. Any where else, she might have gone, quiet ly settled down, her past unknown. If she lived right no finger of suspic Ion would be pointed at her. Instead she calme to lola openly defying law and decency and has mad^ herself the object of comment which few women care to subject themselves to. a to
