Waiihington, July M. President
Wilson today in a personal statement
addressed to hie fellow countrymen
denouncing mob spirit and mob ac
tion, railed upon the nation to show
th world that while it Aghta for de
mocracy on foreign fields it ia sot
destroying democracy at home.
The president referred not only to
mob action against those suspected of
being enemy alirns or enemy sympa
thizers; he denounced most emphati
cally mob actions of all sorts, espec
ially lynching, and while he did not
refer specifically to lynching of ne
groes in the South, it is known that
he included them in his characterisa
tions of mob spirit sa a "blow at the
heart of ordered law and human Jus
tic." It ia known that th lynching of
negroea, aa well as attacks upon those
suspected of being enemies or sym
pathizers, have been used by th Ger
man propaganda throughout Central
and South America as well as In Eu
rope, to contend that the pretensions
of the United States aa th chaeanien
of democracy are a aham.
Deeply concerned by th situation,
the president declared to address his
fellow countrymen and to declare
that "every mob contribute to Ger-
man lira about the United States
what her moat gifted liars cannot im
prove upon by way of calumny."

The Germans strove hard in the
Forest regions north of the Marnr to
hold back the French and the Ameri

The enemy was everywhere forced

forcements evidently have been
thrown along the front, where the
Britiah, French and Italian are fight
