PREACHES ON LYNCHING.
Rev. Howard Cree Declares Mob
Violence Does Not Prevent Crime
Or Check It.
Augusta, October 28.-Rev. How
ard T. Cree. pastor of the First
Christian church, preached an able
and eloquent sermon on lynching, his
theme being: "The Worth of the
Law and the Infidelity of the Mob
Spirit." In the course of his re
marks Mr. Cree referred to the re
cent lynchings in Georgia and also
the able charge of Judge H. C. Ham
mond to the grand jury on last Mon
Mr. Cree declared that lie had been
where the negro had been burned at
the stake. he knew of the vile crimes
for which they were sumniarilv dealt
with. he is a democrat and knew
something of the nature of the negro,
be had defended the south and south
ern sentiment in the universities of
the north. and therefore felt that he
was privileged to speak before those
"One phase is paramount just
how," he declared. "It is the negro
and the crime-the negro and the
punishment-the negro and lynching.
Those who take the law in their
hands say, and too often justly, that
the iw can be criticised. They say
it ii .oo slow and imperfect of ad
mir.,1ration. It is human law, and
like ali 1hings human, is faulty, has
its imi.er'ct features. Yet the best
way t- coriect the defects of the bad
law, to secure its repeal, is to enforce
it. Execution of the laws mean, the
exposure of the defects and rectifi
cation by a fair and impartial people.
Courts are slow and justice some
times miscarries, yet justice must be
slow and deliberate to safeguard the
interetstc of all.
"A disregard of law is infidelity. I
can use no stronger term. 'It is in
fidelity to the sacred past. Tradition
al inheritance is to be treasured, not
trodden under foot. We are debt
ors. It should not be squandered. It
is infid,ity to our fathers who se
cured it to us at no little cost. They
died for the principles it represencs.
Law is the crystallized expression of
their best efforts at civilization and
progress in the past.
"The recent lynching at Statesboro
was infidelity to the officers of th,at
county and the state. Georgia will
not soon live down this record. Our
escutcheon has been stained. It is
"Lynching has every mark of reck
lessness and none of sanity. It does
not prevent crime; it does not even
check it. It begets a spirit of law
lessness in ourselves, it spreads to
the community and is handed down
to posterity. Individual redress is
barbaric and wholly out of keeping
with moderh civilization."

New York. October 27.-"City hall
to Harlem in 15 minutes" became a
reality vesterday when the main ar
tery of Manhattan's great subway
system was opened to the public. The

yesterday afternoon were attended by
invited guests. Mayor McClellan
presided and addresses were made by
Chief Enzineer William Barclay Par

Following the 'exercises a special
train left city hall for the One Hun

carrying invited guests. The mayor
turned .on the current and the trip
was made without event.
The actual opening of the subway
to the traveling public took place last
night. Long before 7 o'clock when
the first train was scheduled to leave
city hall. the park -surrounding the
hall was jammed with a good natured
crowd. Thousands of persons fought
with one another for the privilege of
purchasing the first ticket. Flying
wedges, center rushes and almost
every means of progress known in
football tactics were adopted by those
ambitious to ride upon the first train.
Squads of police were stationed at the
entrances and they were compelled
to meet the onward rushes with sim

testimony in the trial of Eillary and
Charles Altman was in before the ad
journment of Charlton superior court
at Folkston yesterday afternoon and
today will be taken up in the hear
ing of the arguments.
Two negro witnesses for the state
were postive in their testimony that
Hillary Altman killed Jackson Dun
can and Charley Altman killed the
negro. Jim Riley.
The killing was committed in the
doorway of the smoking compart
ment of the negro coach. There were
several witnesses to the row, but
none could say who committed the

Other white witnesses who were
present testified that they were pres

death and they believed him to be un

Some of the testimony was to the

coach just five minutes before the
killing of Duncan, and that he was

It is not, however, on account of
the drama that the people turned out
so well last night. Nor is it what
interests us now. It is rather, and
solely, the artistic genius that read
the lines. His voice was perfect,
and he rendered the several parts as
if in dl:fferent personalties. Unlike
most voices, even of those who are
famous for their public speaking,
there was nothing in Mr.Clark's
voice that might offend the niost sen

Ve cannot help remarking here, by
way of parenthesis, upon the real ad
vantages of such a recital as was
given last night over even the best
stage presentations. In this dramatic
recital of "Ulysses." there was noth
ing to distract the attention from the
thought and feeling of the play, and
every line, moreover, was read by a
master. So the audience were able
to follow, in imagination, the wander
ings of Ulysses. They were able
to see the dreamlike inactivity upon

the rousing cf his marvelous powers
to avenge himself upon the ignoble
herd of suitors to his wife Penelope,
the humiliating scene at his own
hearth. all these were realized in a
wav that only imagination can know.
On the whole, therefore, those who
heard this great reading will never
forget the impressions made upon
them by the genius of the author and
the genius of the interpreter.
