Tho lynching of Dillard Wilson by
a mob composed of citizens of Shilob
township, Butnter county, and ad
jacent sections of Florence and Clar
endon counties was tbe exercise of
lawless justice by an excited and out
raged community that will be approv
ed and justified by a majority of the
people of suinter county and the state
at large. This being a fact that we
must admit, regardless of our firm
ly rooted conviction that lynch law is
never Justified in a country that has
courts, an honest Judiciary and a
predominant sentiment in favor of the
suppression of crime and the punish
ment of criminals, it is almost a waste
of time to discuss the Dillard Wilson
case, save in general terms for the
purpose of making clear reasons for
declining to approve lynch law In any
circumstances, no matter how hein
ous tbe crime or bow positive the
proof of the guilt of the victim of the
mob. There was no question of the
guilt of Dillard Wilson. His crime
was brought home to him and fasten
ed upon him by a chain of circumstan
tial evidence stronger, more positive
and more convincing than that usual
ly adduced from the testimony of eye
witnesses of a crime. He was posi
tively Identified by tbe little son of
the woman, whom he murdered. He
Anally confessed his guilt, removing
the last shred of doubt if doubt ex
isted In the minds of anyone. The
case against him was clear, positive,
Irrefutable. His life was forfeited for
his ghastly crime All that remained
was the time and manner of his exe
cution. Had he been left to be dealt
with by law through the orderly pro
cedure of the courts a speedy trial
was guaranteed snd bis punishment
certain. All that civilized society asks,
or should ask, Is the enforcement of
law and the punishment of crimin
als. This was assured In the case of
Dillard Wilson, but the men who put
him to death! yielding to the heat and
passion of the moment lost sight or
the duty that each and every law
abiding citisen owes to himself and
his Stnte to uphold tbe courts and aid
In all ways possible and in ail cir
cumstances the orderly enforcement
of law. They took the law into their
own hands and enforced swift Jus
tice in a lawless manner. They did
no injustice to Dillard Wilson. They
klled him, but his life was already
forfeited, and in killing him they did
him no. wrong. The wrong was to the
community In particular and to soci
ety in general in the open and flag
rant disregard of law .The effect of
the lynching of Dillard Wilson did
not end when the mob had satis fled
Its vengence by riddling his body with
bullets. The killing of Dillard Wilson
was a reversion to lawlessness in
mass, apd a bresking of tho laws that
divide..law snd order from lawless
ness and violence. Therein' lies the
danger In lynch' law; therein lies
tho wrongfUlneBS of resorting to
rough and ready justice when thera
ire courts established for the trial
rod punishment of . criminals. The kil
ting of a- self-confessed murderer.
Whose clothing reeked with the blood
if his victim, Is a small thing In com
parison with the wrong done the oub
lie conscience. The men who partici
pated In the lynching of Dillard Wil
son will find It easy to justify the
killing of a murdorer, but how' cas
they Justify the violation of law that
their act entailed when they, assumed
the function of public executioners?

A few days ago on a train coming
rot of Savannah, Ga? a passenger In
i Pullman car was seised with chills
rod fever. The conductor on the train
first tried to find a doctor on th?

svery coach in the train and asked
svery passenger but could not find a
Irop of whiskey on the truth.
