The Contemptible Bed Flag.
From the New York Times.
The red tiag is not legalized because
the police have been directed not to arrest
a person for carrying it in the streets.
It is. perhaps, just as well that the police
should not be permitted to discriminate
between flags. The green flag and the
orange have been carried through our
streets irequenuy. sometimes tney nave
met in collision and blood has been shed,
but not recently. When the bearer of
red flag disturbs the public peace he can
be treated as the bearer of flags of other
colors have been In similar circumstances.
I The flag is free. Bu^ it is not the less
detestable. It is the qymbol of lawless!
ness and anarchy the world over and as
' such is held in contempt by all right'
minded citizens. The bearer of a red
flag may not be moiested by the police
. until he commits some act which the creed
of the red flag justifies. He deserves,
however, always to be regarded with
suspicion. By carrying the symbol of
lawlessness he forfeits all right to respect
and sympathy. Tne red flag signifies
nothing here but shameless disregard
for the principles on which this
republic was founded. Its followers
; would substitute for real liberty a tyran;
?y of prejudice and misguided j^ssion.
