The lynching of Tomo Owens, hl-Jacknr nnd
murderer, would suggest to the uruophlstlcntcd
ono not familiar with Oklahoma affairs, an
t'Ppo'iunlty for moralising;. The writer of
sterotypert edltoilnl will find In it an exhibi
tion of thu mob sjilrlt and a growins disrespect
Thn Wgild ban been a rlop observer of Okla
homa affairs too long to full Into that .error.
Thero was not a vestleo of tho mob spirit In the
act of Saturday night. It was cltlzonthtp, out
raged by government Inefficiency nnd a too
tender regard for tha professional criminal,
registering an tndlchant protest.
Thc who ssek a cause, for the, dcum-hoad
eourt martini that railed Tom Owens to a sp'rdy
final a' rutuitlng, ran easily dlsrover It. They
w'll find It m long years of mMrlng to the

of Amerlenn hIMory. culminating In tho "par

A crowd of indignant citizens took thn law
Into tli'lr hnmts been lira they wein convinced
that Oov. James Ilotiortson, uetliig-govornor
Dob Duvldaon, artlng-gornor Tom Walilrep
and Lieutenant govnrnor Trapp and Inral rnunty
off loirs were unworthy of th trust that hail
been repus'! I" them to protect the decent olt
Isenshlp of tho Ute nnd enforce the lawn
honestly and vigorously. ,
Three nltlteh made the most sensational
protest they wnroi rajmble of. Nit only against
tho high-ups In government, but against thn
condition cxlsllng ut the rnunty courthouse
which 'wero proven by the rase with which
government was overcomo by them. The con
tempt this gathering of cltl.eus had for the
sheriff's otflco and the Impotmiry of government
exemplified by him; the ease with which t liny
swopt thin department of thn public service
aside, Is not by nny means thn least significant
f put urn of the sffulr
Thst our analysis of the Incident Is correct
stands attested by street talk tho day following'
"One pet the governor nnd nctlng-governors
will not have tho plensuro of pnrdonlngV'
"Tho county was saved considerable oxpenso
bnd real Justice mated out."
"A vlgllenco committee has proven Itself
mnro efficient and economical In enforcing law
und restraining the hl-Jsckers than, all the of
ficers In the county."
'The straw bondsmen didn't have a chancn
to make money out of Owms,"
Hundreds of statements like this wero heard
on every hand. ,
Finally, an Incident like that which nrcurcd
(Saturday night does not lake place In a com
munity where law enforcement Is n fact anil
Justice both speedy nnd ceitalr. ,
Wo moko no defense of tho mob Spirit, but
wo do assert that It will ,bean Impotent and
hopeless citizenship when conditions such as are
the rulo In governmental circles III Oklahoma
ran go on und on without a righteous protest
such ns was registered in the casn of Tom
Owens, and wo predict that unlesn conditions
nie speedily Improved, tho one we nro now dis
cussing will not bo Inst by nny means.
Again we assert thnt very great significance
attaches to the fact that the whole pioreidlngs
wns planned fmnny hours In advance of tho
event; that the county authorities had warning
of what wa'se6mlng nnd ample lime to prevent
what did take place. Yol when the crowd
moved to Its' purpose tho sheriff was swept aside
like chaff without protest or even a gesture to
wards protecting thn man. In his charge.

T-ooktng back upon the things he said and
the obligations he committed our America to,
one can but wonder that his spnkvsmanshlp was
never challenged by a demand that ho exhibit
his commission and prove his right to exercise
the authority he arrogated to himself. Und thnt

BefotV tha pence conference in I'arls, May
10, 1919, the president said:
" tho American people who came
Into tho world cosserratcd to liberty aro
ready to east In their lot In common with
tho lot of thoso whoso ItbertyMa threatened
wherever the cause of liberty seems to be
Imperiled. This Is tho spirit of the peoplo
of the United Blntes und thoy hav been
privileged to send two million men over
hero to tell you so "
The very Important thing about that utter
ance Is that It ws not true. It is not true to
day. It was not then nor Is It now uvon approi-
Under tho leadership of true patriots tho
American people liarartlcd' a bloody and trem
endlously expensive to retrieve their lot from
the common lot of mankjud that thuy might
set up a gOAemnirnt of their own choosing and
construction, establish lawn radically dltferent
from thosa which wore the romnion'lot, worship
Ood In various ways, contrary to the common
lot and. do various and sundry things hideously
unorthadox In the minds of those whoso com
mon business was to govern tho common lot.
And they, after accomplishing these things,
set u,fl upon their complcti-d work which boro
tho legend: "Am we here nnd now plcdgo our-'
selves not to Interfere In the affairs of the older
nations of tha eastern hemisphere, so wo pro
hibit those older nations from acquiring political
rlghtB in the wnstern hemisphere or doing In
any way that which threatens the Independence
of these United States or interfere In Its govern
ment." That was, it Is nnd It will always be, the
true nplrlt of the people of the United States.
The American people In 1919 'were not ready
to cast In their lot with any other peoplo on
earth. Nor are they ready for such suicidal
action today. They were ready then, as they
arc ready now. as they havo always been ready
when under a national leadership that afforded
the national consalenco adequate expression, to
exprees sympathy for any people seeking liberty
and Indeprdnencerand lo offer their hospitality
to fugatlves from oppression irgardlpss of
whenco they came.
America, today as always, lit (conscious of
her own virtue, of tho rcotltudo of h"r own lu

her heart directs. Ilut fhe Is not ready to give
bond for her Virtue, forswear herself for nil
time, nor enter any association of nations that

liberty of action according to her national con
science, nor will she, ever. K.

In a great whitc-oak tree slowly
dying of ngc nnd neglect nnd of
fer.nt itn decaying limbs as a refuge
for the llttlo flock of the forest thero
lived a woodpecker nnd nn owl. Tho
owl had n night Job nnd wob a very
Thn woodpecker worked during
the day, drllllnc a dead limb for
bugs nnd worms. Ho was very par
ticular about his appearance and
oven while working wore a whlto
waistcoat and a brilliant red cap
He wan not a shirker, however. His
tools were kept In perfect order and
he was a remarkably fast and ef
ficient workman, fully deserving tho
good fortune that fell to his lot.
One morning a wandering Jay
came to the white oak and asked
for a Job.
"Can you drill holes? naked tho
"I havo never tried." replied the
Jay: "but I could learn."
"I'll try ou," the woodpecker
said. "This Is my limb. You may
begin work nt once, nnd your pay
Mill lie onc-hnlf of all tho bugs and
worms you dig out." .
, Tho Jay set to work and m.irlo
good. Ills bill was not made for
drilling, but the wood was soft and
the work light.
The woodpecker sat on another
limb and watched the Jay's labors,
and his neck muscles gerw soft as
his waistline expanded. Idleness
gave him opportunity of employing
a young robin to preen his foathera
when the Jay disappeared.
The woodpecker was dnimfounded
"What Is the world coming to?"
ha demanded. "Here It Is time for
dinner nnd not ,i servant on the
place. I,ook at that fat bug crawl
ing 'under the bark. My, my'
flight there before my eyes and not
a soul to -fetch It to me. This
country Is going to the dogs."
Thus ho grumbled until evening,
when hunger got the better of plquo
and Impelled him to set about get
ting hln rwn supper. Ho drilled with
his old-ttme vigor and soon ap
peased his appotlte, but the unac
customed labor tired his neck and
magnified his grievance.
"The idea." he said, "of a person
of my quality having thin sort of
work to do. I can do it as well ns
another In case of emergency but,
great guns, how It strains my neck!"
Tho owl had emerged from his
bedroom and waa stretching his
wings to generate a little energy be
fore going to his work. Ho heard
tho woodpecker's plaint and
"My dear young friend," he said,
"straining your neck is good for
your soul. Heforo you became a
victim of foolish notions and that
Important feeling your neck Was
tougher than a steel spring Loafing
has weakened your thews ub wJcll
as your wit. Letting George do It
has robbed you of half your man
hood. If tho Jay hadn't quit you
would soon have become too soft
and lazy to swallowTyour own din

can't handle. The woodpeckers,"
ho concluded, "will peter out soon
