Lynching For Assault. t
Editors and thinkers throughout V
the country-except, possibly, those t
who can not think clearly-are
beginning to take a common sense,l a
natural view of this question of lynch. f
ing negroes for assault upon white 0
women. Reason is beginning to pre
Here is a recent editorial from the ,
Washington Post, one of the most '
conservative as well as one of the d
most influential newspapers any
"There is cons;.derable hiinin nn
ture in this world, and it Wnks, g
speaks, and acts th.. s..-e lanr ifnge in %
Ohio and in Georgia, in Kan a and t<
in Mississippi. Last vednesday, at u
Marysville, Ohio, a negro who hId t(
assaulted a white woman was only
saved from mob violence by the cun- ti
ning and the trick of the sheriff, N
and on the same day, at Rosedale, a
Kan., a negro who had been discov- hi
ered concealed uider the bed of a T
white woman was actually strung up el
by a mob, and would have paid the m
penalty with his life if the police had 31
not gone to the rescue and cut him (
"Kansas is where they encourage j
the negro to vote and resent his at- sj
tempts to labor. Mississippi is where
they will iot allow thlie negro to vote, m
but insist. that he shall work. With t.1
this differellce, Kansas and Mississip- I
pi look upon the man and brother pre- s
cisely alike. In Kansas, and in Ohio,
the negro is a political factor-entire
ly so. In Massissippi, and inl South
Carolina, the negro is out, of polities
-entirely so. o1
" But whet her Nort I or Sout h1, whenl sl
a negro aSsIlts a whiite Wo1m1an, the
effect on the community is tlie same. is
The rage of the people becomes T
frenzy, an)d a way would he found to ii,
kill him "'though lie were ininiortal, ''si
if the mob could lay hands on him at
the moment. It is ulseless to speak
of the law there and then. Where is
the man, North or South, East or A
West, who would have his wife or
d-aughter detail to the jury the story it
of her shame? We can all stand the a
toothache with admirable and serene
philosophy if it be somebody else's
tooth; but the white man does not live, C
North or South, who would not soon
er lynch a thousand misereants than
that his modest daughter should be
subjected to the ordeal of telling the
story of her shame to a public morbid
with vitiated euriosity.
"This is all v'ery unfortunate;
very wrong, perhaps ; but it. is s.iper- d
latively human. It is actually and
gravely p)roposedl in one of the states
to legalize lynchings. That. only evi
dlences the horror of1 the crime for I
wh'ichl most lynchings are the penalty.
"To be entirely frank about it, thea
respect able negroes-and there are
thousands and tens af thousands of
them--ean (10 much to stop lynch
ings by a more vigorous and rigidl
ostracism of those of their race gail
ty of out rages. Let the negroes
themselves make it hot ter for the mon
sters who bring~ reproach on the
whole race. Thidt. will do more t han
all the laws you can shake a stick at
to make lynching unfashionable.
WVe have not seen a better or clear
er or' more rea sonable ait ie|Ie oin t his h
subject from anmy source, than this t
editorial from the Washington Post. t
Andl we inay remark in passing that
we have seen similar expressions from (1
a niumber of. Nort hen papers giuring
the past few months. It is a pity
that some few papiers here in the
Sonith Imilisrep resenit t heir own people
by(X expresing1 contrary views.
TIhe lyncehing (oL negroes for assault
ing white( women will never be stop
pod( utimtil the assaults are stop ped.
The c'ause must be remiloved before
the effect cain lie removedl.
Let the negroes put aI stop to the
assaults, andl then there will be no
more' lynchihgs--for assaults or for
any other causes.-Anderson Mail.
We reprint the above because wve
believe it is true. We do not believe
in lynching. Lynching for the one
crime will lead to lynching for lessern
crimes. Of that there can be no qunes
tion. IBut so long as negroes assault
white wvomen, so long will there be
l.ynehings, north or south or' anywhere D
else. And when it 'is bi-ought home to in
