Is being robbed of credit for closing

Governor nnd High Sheriff's action
was "coincident" with that of "the
United States Court (Judge Esteo)."
The mora anarchy Is discussed, tbe
less evidence Is theio that the people of
tho country have completely lost their
head. President Itoosevelt's personal
action has done much to convince thv
peopln that proper protection for their
chief executive Is not to be found In
radical laws, but rather through sound
sober sense and ennstnut watchfulness
on tho part of every citizen. The Unit

1 Thu facts are few. simple and easily ascertained.

Judge Kstcu charged the Federal Oranl Jury to Inquire Into the Iniquities of
Iwllel, but without avail.
-The Ministerial Union than retain ;d Mr. Fitch. He reported to his em
plojcrs that the pioprietors of Iwllel might be prosecuted under the pro
visions of Chapter 36 of thePenal Code for the offense of common nuisance,
and on conviction the Circuit Court ml ,ht under tho provisions of Section 8S2
order the nuisance to be abated; but that a prosecution could not be Insti
tuted except by tho Attorney General, or with his consent; that If Instituted
It was In his power to dismiss the pro-cedlngs, and that even In th event of
a (onvlctlon and Judgment of abatomint, the High Sheriff wonld have no
power .it destiny buildings or furniture or prevent future offenses. Ho fur
ther reported that It was In the power of the, United States District Attorney
to practically clone Iwllel by continuous arrest of parties pntroulzlng tho

Mr. Fitch then pointed out to thu clergymen thnt the most effective
unshod of closing Iwllel would bu by n wilt of Injunction in an ucUon In

thnt Its occupant sutTeied a special Injury from the uulnancu differing In
kind from tho Injury suffered by tho general public. Such a plaintiff was
found In the branch Knumaknplll Ch'irch Society. It was at first believed
thnt the ownership of the premises wis lu the Hoard of Education, anil at
