L RICHMOND - - KENTUCKY (
A Letter from Silc. j
Dkab Citizen: I don't know what;
to do, I declare for it. It's nu awful
thing, now, not to bo proud o' tlm
state you're bnn in. An' 1 urn proud
o' Kentucky for giviu' ;is Henry Clay ;
an' Lincoln an' Feo an' Cshsius Clay,
an' for leiu' a southern state an' still !
stickin' to the old Union. Hut if this ,
lynching business keeps up much
longer, I don't know what I will think: -
Alwut ten of us were talkiu' iibout ;
it after tho big meetin' Sunday, on'
wo was all with one exception just the
deadest kind ngm it. I never fiiw
John Hariisou so roustwl up
alxmt anything. Ho said he wished
wo could just take that old town
whero thoy went an' burned tho nig
ger au' just cut it clenn off of Kentuc
ky, sos to throw it in tho Ohio river
or some placo worse. An' there didn't
many of lis say no to it, neither, for
we was all plumb mad, nu' forgot
that there was innocent folks there ns
well as guilty.
But Doc Hardy kindertalked 'tolh
erway. "Hold on, men," says he,
"Just think what that ar uigger had
done. 1 reckon he was the blackest
heartedest rascal that ever grow on
Kentucky soil. Hit had been your
home, John, that ho broke up. you'd a
wanted him treated rough now, an' no
"That's all right," says John. "I
would n wanted him tried an' hung
nccordm' to law, an' that's whnt would
havo happened to him sure enough if
that mob had left him alone. Hut as
for burnin' him, why if he was the
devil himself, it wouldn't Iki mi busi
ness to burn him! Thoso who read
their Biblo awful liternl an' don't al
low for no figures of speech, think
that God is goin' to burn at tho last
day thoso that Ho knows needs it an'
can't lie mado to quit their meanness
no other wny. Hut if Ho does, He'll
wait till Ho's most everlastingly sure
that He has caught tho right ones, an'
t hat they are reiimntible iu tho full
est an' last an' utmost sense for what
tliey'vo doue! Ho won't hold brute
lieasts nor crazy men responsible, nn'
Bomo men what don't have tho name
of liein' crazy, but whoso parents
havn taught em to do brutish things,
won't bo held quite so responsible us
wo good folks imagine. It ain't our
business to pass everlasting judge
ment on no nin."
"Well," says Doc, "that sounds pur-
ty, but wo vo got to puuish these nas-
iiunterors nu assaulters migitiy
rough, just iu self defense
"Of course," Bays John. "I ain't a
sayin' that tho guilty shan't be pun
ished, strict and severe. Thoy shall,
if I'm tho judge. Hut when a mobo'
no-called respectable citizens can
lirt-ak the law. thov re settiu a lino
oxamplo o' luw-breukin' for tho rns-
cuts to loliow. i nero now, your own
solfl And as for this heathenish
burnin', you know, if you road history,
nillCII you Ullglll lo iituuuuu i; iiiuv
such awful severity dou't stop tho
cominittin' of crime. It nover did, an'
it never will. There s moro murders
an'ussaiiUs now than there used to be,
two to one, an' theso lynching uin't
toimiu' 'em Thov'ro mat makin' it
worse, I think. Thoy make those
what ore half way inclined to do the
doviltry feel more on a level, liko,
with thoso they're thiukiu' o'doin' it to.
An' it stirs up a sort of rovengo feel
iug, an' makes 'em crazier than ever."
And I woll, forouco iu mv life I
didn't suy nothin'. I was just too
riled up to talk straight, un John was
a doiu' it bo well, I just let him do it
