trapped like wild beasts and brought
to this country, where they were
treated like other animals. Fifty years
ago they were released from bun

a race. Yet you expect him to have
reached the plans that it took the
white race 2,000 years to reach.
You wonder that he can commit
such brutal crimes after 50 years of
development Yet you rejoice m
such brutal scenes after 2,000 years
of civilization. So mentally you are
at least 1,500 years behind the negro.

A FEW WONDERMENTS. Presi
dent Taft criticises Frank Walsh, the
chairman of the industrial relations
committee, for lack of Judicial poise
"The result Is that no one will pay
any attention to the report of the
commission and its conclusions will
play no part with judicially-minded
I wonder if it was "Judicially mind
ed men" who advised the Rockefel
lers to employ regular armies to kill
employes in Colorado, New Jersey
and other places they control?
I wonder at the nerve of ex-President
Taft in criticising such a lover
of mankind as Frank Walsh when he
(Taft) when asked a remedy for un
employment answered: "God knows."
I wonder if "Judicially-minded
men" such as Taft have not murder
ed as many human beings as have
been murderer in all the wars, all the
private murders, all the racial mur
ders, all the preventable murders
since the beginning of life through
not protesting against glaring and
flagrant wrongs patent to all who
win open their eyes.

won't come off," is not a type of the
"judicial minded" we must get rid of

TO "SOUTHERNER." Being a
constant reader of your valuable and
fair-minded paper, I read with con
siderable amusement the article
printed the 16th Inst, concerning
"That Hanging Picnic," which was
signed "A Southerner, Thank God."
Now, then, really, "Mr. Southern
er," I think you have very little, In
deed, to thank "God for."
However, if you take Issue with
this remark, I would suggest that you
read the editorial published In the
Tribune Aug. 18, entitled "Leo M.
Frank" and pay particular attention,
"Mr. Southerner," to the four last
paragraphs. B. J,' R,
