For years the Chicago Tribune, Representative Tinkiiam of JJussacliu- sett.s and others in tlie north aim cast have been demanding that southern representation in the national congress be based on white population on the grounds that negroes arc not admitted to free and eiiuiil exercise of .the They have gotten nowhere with this line of aryununt, hut should it develop that a southern stai'c was actually adopting the principle they advocate as the basis for its own legislative representation new support would be given them. The constitution says that reprc-. sentation shall he based upon population. It docs not draw any line be- twEou white and negro population. If the representatives of the Arkansas counties with few negro residents or none at all carry their point they will do so in defiance of ths constitution of the slate. Tr.ey will' also give application to a principle which, if put into elfect nationally, would greatly reduce the congressional representation and the national political importance . of ; -Arkansas aiid! all other southern states. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY G, 1931 The Churchmen and Money Thi! effort to forgot about Tom Mooney dues not s;ehi to be headed toward success. The. latest obstacle to ho thrown in its path is the formation of a group of distinguished churchmen to work for pardons for j Mooney and Warren Billing;, who was imprisoned with him. The names of sonic of churchmen are .striking testimony to the way in which Mooiicy's CMC appeals to liberal-minded folk. Among them, for instimcc, you. will •find .such men as Bishop Francis •]. McCoime.ll of the Methodi=t Episcopal church; Dr. Harry Emerson Fosdick, Rabbi Stephen S. OUT OUT, WAY Wise, and Father John A. Ryan. Liberals these iiK'ii undoubtedly are; but not one of them is a man who ordinarily espouses a cause thai does not commend itself to an intelligent mind. ]t is a little hit hard, con-idcmi;: that set of names, In cling to the belief that exact justice has. been done in the case of Tom M<ioney.

It came to light fully HE veil years ago, anil the machinery ol prosecution \v;is put in operation not long afterward. !!ul now, al this late date, tin; cii-e i:; still kicking around in the courts! Whatever one's opinion of Fall's guilt or iiiiiocenct 1 , it i:; impossible to deny thai this long d.lay constitute;-) a terrific indictment of our whole criminal court system, When a ca=e of this kind cannot be settled in seven years, something fundamental is out of gear. somewhere.
