Let the Law Tal^e Its Course Two negroes against whom there is a good deal of feeling—apparently well justified—in this mid nearby Missouri comintimiies, will be brought to trial here at the current term of criiniiinl court. They .stand charged with offenses for which the penally is death—ami prosecuting oll'ieevs say they have the evidence to convict them. Two valued and well loved oll'icers of this county risked their lives—and one of them suffered a dangerous injury—to bring those negroes to jus- lice. Justice is What they should receive, with full opportunity,to present any • they may have and wilh punishment as prescribed by law for such crimes as may bo proved u&rinsl them. We do not think that there is any danger of mob interference with the 'trial of these negroes. There was some tin-cat pf violence shortly after their arrest tint there has been liinu for blood to cool. If there i s ever occasion for the invocation^ of .lynch law it is wlicn law enforcement officers or the courts have shown themselves incapable of dealing with criminals. TJieixV iss no such wtiiation here—no reason for anyone to attempt to take into his own hands a matter wliiclij; the proper authorgtios aie handling effectively. Itwotilil be poor thanks to Sheriff Wilstni,' who nearly lost his eyesight in arresting these men, to compel him to defend them against a lynching mob. It would allow scant rcspetf,''•-for our court to attempt to fake (his case out of its hands. It has been many years since llicre has been a lynching or a serious attempt at one in this county. There is no occasion to mar that record now. BLYTllEVILLH!. (ARK.)] .COUfllEB NEWS Forgotten in Prison Gov. Hike. Conner of Mississippi lias discovered that Ilic "loriroUeii man" lias a number of representatives in prison. Many convicts, he found, are overlooked . by the parole hoard they have'no money, no family, mid no friends to bring t|, c j,. Cilscs | ;c . fore it. :y may deserve release just us OUT OUR WAY much as the men who are paroled, but because everybody has forgotten about them, they get no consideration. In mi efl'ort to set matters right, C'ov. Conner has been personally inter- v'icwing such coilviots. AflogctJhcr, lie expects to hear at loasl ifiO Jong- ienhers tell their stories. His action reflects craiil on hiai, and also indicates a weakness not uncommon in parole systems. Whether a prisoner is paroled should not depend on Hie •influence he can muster. It is the board's responsibility l» examine all prisoners' cases without waiting to be prodded. Congressmen Strike Back Something seums to be coming over our congressmen—or over some of them, nl any rale. They are beginning to bark back at their constituents. First we have John S. McGroarly of California, who was irked beyond endurance by sonic of the silly letters lie received and who finally wrote to a voter and invited him to "please take two running jumps and go to hell." Next Ohio's Stephen M. Young had a similar outburst. To a constituent who objected to his support of a certain measure, Mr. Young replied that lie wns going ( 0 ; CCC p oll , sul) | K)r [j,,jr it and that all who disagreed with him could go ( 0 L| )t . S(t ,, )c f) ]. MU u, a i Mr. McGroarly told his constituent to visit. Somehow there is something rather .encouraging about these replies. A congressman must be. responsive to sentiment in his own district, of course; but he must also be his own man, with a mind of his own, ready to follow, (he course he thinks best ami lake the consequences at the polls. A littki more of this sentiment would give us a belter congress. I Iind llicre is great spiritual activity in the United Slates. That, 1 believe, -is the most, hopeful sign for the future.'—The Rev.
