THE PROTECTION OF THE LAW.
"Fair play" is a sentiment that sits snugly in the mind of every human
being. No matter how criminal, how debased, how defiant of law, the
sane mind is inherently responsive to its call. Aside from the finer
distinctions that balance the scales of justice, fair play is a substitute that
appeals to the most limited intelligence and the most blackened conscience
with the same force that justice appeals to the stronger mind. It is a
substitute that brings within the comprehension of the most illiterate
criminal the demands of justice-"fair play."
Did Green Rogers have fair play when he was shot down from ambusf?
Did he have a chance for his life? The testimony and the verdict of the
jury answr' that question.
tiuman imperfection makes restraint of the law necessary. Human
s(lliishness and self interest may cause crime and sometimes prevent its
puii;shmený; but it is the same sellfish instinct, aided by christian fault,
a:,d the experience of generations of civilization that demands respect for
the law. It is the law-abiding man who maintains the sanctity of ti2.
home, wh. ir the friend of churches and schools and civic betterment an
Without a penalty, the law is useless. Crime must be punished. The
4uctrument is the people. The judge is elected by the people; the
prosecuting attorney is elected by the people; the jury is selected under
laws made by the people. It is the glory of our democracy that the people
rule. If it is a failure, thu people are responsible.
In the trial of Martin Jenkins and Ernest Pelar for the murder of
Green Rogers, the conviction is the first in the history of St. Tammany
parish that has been obtained after a mistrial. The crime was most
brutal and uncalled for, and failure of punishment for it would have been
a calamity. The jury, in its verdict, has rendered a service that will be
far-reaching in its benefits to the community. As Mr.- Morgan said in his
speech, if such crimes go unpunished, we might as well close the jail arid
burn down the courthouse. There is no brutal joy in the sentence of the
criminal. There is no vindictive delight in the retribution for the com-.
mission of the crime. It is the comforting thought that the protecting
arm of the law is thrust between the people and violence. There is sym
pathy for those who suffer innocently the grief of disgrace and long sep
aration, but there is sympathy, too, for the widowed woman who has lost
the loving care and protection of a husband.
KEEPING APACE WITH THE, TIMES.
The total population of St. Tammany parish by the census of 1920 is
20,645. Deducting, from this the population of Covington, Mandeville,
Madisonville, Slidell, Abita Springs Pearl River and Ramsay would leave
a rural population of 11,621. The populations of other towns are not
available, Lut it is, safe to say that the population of St. Tammany living
on farms is around 11,000, something more than half the entire 'popula
tion. The relation of agriculture to the prosperity of the parish can be
clearly seen. With adaptability to crops that are staple on the market,.
and with advantages that are superior in the production of some crops,
including grapes, Satsuma organges, strawberries, cane, sweet potatoes
and many vegetables, there is no reason why St. Tammany farmers should
not add much more to the wealth of the parish.
It is known that a large increase in production and proper organiza-.
tion and business management would bring buyers to us; would make us
known in the mar.,t and would secure better prices. We believe the
fasmer L. coiuing more and more to an understanding-of these things and
that a few -Fears will bring quite a change in the proitableress of agricul
tural pursuits-drainage, more acres in cultivation and the use of im
proved machinery. Thomas Walker Page, in an arAi°! in the Saturday
Evening Post. says;
* * * Eten as late as 1900, although there had been a
marked trend to the cities, the urban population was less than a third
of the whole. The recent census, however, disclosed the fact that
the cities now contain more than half, or, to be exact 5 !..3 per cent,
of the populatlin. This change of habitat signifies, if course, a
change of occupanon More of our people are engaiued in manufac-
turing, ccmmerce and personal services than in as;° 'utture In
3ther words, there are at present more than :gte as many to eat
as there aic to pmiucuce food.
It is obvious tha; for the reduced fraction of the ;bouliat :,:i en
gage1 in ef-nrcubre to continue feeding our owu ueaple and produc
ing a surplus tf aeil abroad, one or both of two tho'es must occur:
The labei needed must be substituted by improved machinery, im
piements and other labor-saving devices; and greater skill and more
scientific methods must be applied to extract a larger'yield from
the land In fact, both these things have been taking. place in sub
stantial measure. * * *
I. F. Wl(hrli has been doing some excellent work in demonstrating the
value of f rnm meachixiery in preparing the ground and putting in crops.
He is agent for the Fcrdson tractor and its numerous attachments for
planting an- cultivating the soil, and he has put his machinery in prac
tical operation on various farms around Covington. In this way all
guess-work is eliminated. The accomplishments of the machinery is
before the eyus.
The greatest obstacle in the use of machinery is stumps; but here again
the value of machinery is illustrated. To overcome this, Mr. Wehrli is
offering to furnish a stump puller to any farmer who wishes to pot
machinery on the farm and is confronted by the stump problem.
We belie'.e work of this kind is good, constructiv'e business and of
public benefit. The future of St. Tammany rests largely in agricuiture.
THE PARISH FAIR.
The St. Tammany Parish Fair was financially successful, and in soeine
of its departments excoedud that of other years, but it wvas by no mean,
what it would have been with proper co-operation of the farmers an 1
stock growers. The agricultural department showed the hack of a farm
agent. The exhibits were of good quality, but the amount of space cover
ed was not half what it should have been. There was iiothing ini it to
compare with the exhibits made by G. C. Alexius when he was living nand
took an interest in showing what could be accomplished on the farm.
The exhibit of Paul Friedlander was a new enterprise, devoted to citra3
fruits.. His display of native grown oranges, Satsum~as and kumquats
was a revelation of of what might be accomplished in this parish in this
line. His 'york will ultimately be of great value to St. Tammany.
The -poultry department was 'better than ever, which is saying a great
deal, for few fairs In the state can equal us in raising -fine, chickens, but
the stock Oopnrtnment was a most discouraging illustration of what tick

infestation means to a parish. Outside of a few loyal exhibitors, there
was no stoca show. Owners of fine stock who had before brought cattle
into the parish for exhibition could not bhing them into tick infected terri
tory, and ticky cattle did not seem to appeal very strongly even to the
home stock raiser. The tick seems to have played the mischief with an
industry that awhile back, believing tick eradication would be accom
plished, was promising to St. Tammany.
Under all the difficulties encountered, President Warner and Secretary
Minckler and their co-worliers have earned the appreciation of*the public,
as have the ladies who worked hard in their departments and in some
instances made improvements over last year.
It talkes money to run a fair, even with the co-operation of every one- -
farmers and town folks. We understand Hammond is putting about
$75,000 into their fair this year, and with a man like Will Houlton at the
head of it, it will be a fair worth seei~ng.' We hope St. Tammany will' re
turn the compliment of Hammond people, who visited our fair in large
numbers. There will be stock there that will repay the trouble.
