The Wills Point Chronicle says:
Editors are not alone responsible
for the results of such a reprehen
sible state of affairs that will excuse
the braggadocio of the rough or the
vituperation of the partisan. The
vicious public opinion in which mur
der finds a sanctuary and meets
with plaudits is the foundation of
such scenes as that which occurred
at Sulphur Springs. Editor Moore
lies cold in the grave, his absence
felt by friends; perhaps the head of
a family gone for aye. JEdilor Tate
is even more to be sympathized
with. We write not in censure, for
the grave should cover the faults of
humanity, but wo do believe the
pres of the State should make a per
sistent effort to discourage that
character of journalism which re
sults in bloodshed. The state asso
ciation should take decided action
and forever close its door upon
those who will not submit to the" re
strictions of a dignified journalism.
