Rule of the Mob Calling upon a grand jury nt St. Joseph, Mo., to imlict participants in a lynching there, Judge J. V. Gaclcly said: "That lynching was not done by good, outraged citi/ens. U was done by men whose moral standards, you will rind, arc little higher than those of the man .lynched. That lynching was murder, nothing but cowardly, despicable murder, and Its motive was, as is every motive for murder, hate." These words are worth repeating he- cause they are applicab!? to all_,lynch mobs. Men of courage, character and sense of sQcial responsibility, no matter how deeply their feelings may be stirred by a horrible criminal act, do not hunt blood vengcar.ue like wolves maddened by the scent in I heir nostrils of the prey they pursue. Lynch law is dangerous to organized society not merely Ijccai'sn it is illegal, 01' even because it is usinlly brutal and degrading, but because it represents rule by those elements of society least tilted to rule. It is' a temporary assumption of power by men whose standards, as Judge Caddy said, "»re little higher than those of the man lynched." John Bull in a Quandary England's centuries-old "Irish question" bids fair to come to a final crisis in the immediate t'-.iturc. President Eamon de Valeru of the Irish Free State asserts flatly that the people of Ireland will be satisfied with nothing less than complete independence. He is prepared to submit this position, to a plebiscite of the people; further, he declares that Ireland would not remain in the British commonwealth for 24 hours if the threat of force were withdrawn. This presents the British government with a problem that will take a good deal of solving. It is doubtful if genuinely coercive measures will be taken; and it begins to look equally doubtful if anything less than coercion would have any eftect. What is John Bull going to do? The irony of the ca'-.c is the fact that the Free State statu-: which England gave Ireland a do:-;en years ago well might have settled thr> whole mat- ter permanently if it had been granted a generation earlier, Great Britain made i'.s concession too late. Whether anything short of complete independence ever will satisfy the Irish people now is exceedingly doubtful. SIDE GLANCES By George Clarkj British GtmbKu Spirit Yew Credit Still Good The recent furore about Hie administration's monetary policy contained a number of dire prophecies about the effect which Unit policy might have on the government's credit. To date these prophecies do not accm to be justified. At any rate, when sovcnimcnt offered $<J50,OOU,(JOO in 2'/j. per cent certificates the oilier day, the issue was ovcr.suliseriljud in jijj lirai'. This, of, is not to say that adoption of direct inflationary measures would not harm the market for government bonds. Hut it is a pretty fair sign that what has been done .so far has not shaken the confidence of investors in Uncle Sum's intention and ability to pay Imck what lie borrows. When Drivers Licenses Arc Proposed for Arkansas A driver's license system, with a nominal tee, is advocated for Arkansas by the Executive Committee of the Road District Protective Association, which said In recommending It: 'The driver's license fee, in addition to helping out revenue a llU':e. will /esnll in fewer accidents, for HOT we hnvn no way to curb reckless driving." There U no question tnat 3o;nc states, chiefly In the E;ist and North, have found this system cITccllvc in holding drivers to strict accountability. They have accomplished this by enforcement so drastic that ii'.> rcridenl driver dares to take aicar out without having his driving license In his pocket. He knows that the most trifling mishap—a mere ;craping of fend-, ers or failure to cee and obey a traffic signal- may bring clown on'him a loci'! or state policeman whoso first demand will bo for his license card. If he can't produce it lu- is out of luck— for_ driving without a license means a summons to court. And If it develops there that the offender's license lias been suspended or revoked, he will find himself heavily lined If not clapped Into Jnll. The practical.value of the cyFtem depends on its unremitting and impartial enforcement. What would enforcement be In a state that exercises EO little supervision over highway traffic, even in the most rudimentary precautions for public safety tliat it. lets cars and trucks travel its main highways nt night without showing any lights? —Arkansas Gazette. spirit of 014 Poland Is by the e»t|mate4 . flgyre of : two billion.

I know most people think he has his' troubles, but if he is on lo his job even as well as I was on to the running of my church while chairman of the church board, he will lose very little sleep for all in the world he has to do is find out just how he wants a thing done and call one of his board members in and tell him what to do; if the board member feels he knows more about how it should be cicnc than the chairman, all the chairman needs to do is shake up tlie board nnd let the unruly mcniiOT drop out.
