Almost the only suljjcct on which

Kinney laid considerable stress on

this connection and brought out that
tho odttor(fcnd the officers of thu High

companions on all the speech making
expeditions fo the' plantations which
wero intended tnvstlr up the laborers.
SogU explained that the Invitation
usually' Included tho staff of tho JIJI
and sought to give the Impression that
ho was alone In his editorial capacity,
but on several occasions Kinney led
him Into accounts of councils and com
mltteo conferences where he was ap
parently among those whoso volco de
