In tho last two years several color
ed boys have boon sent to the pen
from this plnco for perjury, and at
the last term of court at Wagoner
some were sent for tho snmo cause,
and in each and overy Instance it is
said that a worthless lawyer is the
cause of their downfall, and that said
lawyer, who happens to be white, al
ways escapes while his dupes get
punished. The fault Is not in the
court, but Is with the people, who al
low themselves to be used as tools.
It is high time that our people shun
