THE DYED MIMEI OH LIST OF OILLS FUSSED BEFORE S Solo Purpose Is to Uphold Constitution Which Guarantees Protection of Life and Property to Citizens? Democratic "Solid South" Opposition Has Joined Hands With Radicals to Oppose Law and Order Legislation That Would Punish Mobs and Murder. Washington.?One of the hills on the legislative program to be enacted Del ore the Congress adjourns is the Dyer anti-lynching bill. This bill has, passed the House and has been reported favorably to the Senate from the Judiciary Committee. The passage of this bill is demanded for two reasons: First, because it is needed in order to enforce the Federal Constitution, uphold law and order and protect otherwise defenseless citizens who are entitled to all protection of the government; second, because such legislation was specifically pledged by the Republican party in its national patform of 1920 and specifically urged by President Harding in his message to Congress April 12, 1921. The last Republican national platform stated: "We urge Congress to consider the most effective means to end lynching in this country, which continues to be a terrible blot on our American civilization." President Harding in his first message to the special session of Congress on April 12, 1921, said: ^ otlirUl 4 Z-V HMIMi < Kil O 4 llltl V^UIIKI i wu^iii. iw uif nui in of barbaric lynching from the* banners of the free and representative democracy." There is a growing demand upon the part of all law-abiding people to have a Federal law that will punish local communities which permit mobs and lynching. This feeling has become more pronounced and intense since the increasing t frequency of such horrors as the recent mob at Herrin, 111. The mob spirit, which is spreading, is due to several reasons, all of which have their base in the unbridled passions of certain interests which seek to gain their ends by violence and crime rather than by orderly processes of the law. These radical influences have added their opposition to that of the Democratic "Solid South" to the passage of the Dyer nnti-lynching law. The backbone of the opposition to the Dyer nnti-lynching law continues to be the Democratic party, which is against the protection of the life and property of the Negro. This has been conclusively proved by the fact that of the 3,224 persons who were lynched during the years 1887-11)21, inclusive, 2,700 were Negroes, practically all of whom were lynched in Democratic States in the South. The record of 1922 promises to be greater than for many previous years. During the first six months of this year there were 30 lynchings. Of these, 28 were Negroes. Five of them were burned at the stake. All of these lynchings occurred in States which compose the "Solid South." ,.< <iw. ii.;..)., ill two States?Mississippi and Texas. These figures clearly locate the blame for lynching. That the Democratic "Solid South" is in favor of lynching and opposed to any interference of the Federal government to uphold law and order is proved by the record of the Democratic members of Congress who consistently oppose all bills looking to the stopping of lynching and the punishment of lynchers. Practically the solid Democratic vote in the t House was lined up against the pas-:' sage of the Dyer anti-lynching bill. There has been1 110 suggestion that there is any hope of changing these conditions by the actions of the) States themselves. It simply denies! the power of Congress to pass the I law, and with a certain naivette says this proposed intervention of the Federal government "would tend to destroy all sense of local responsibility for the protection of person and property and the administration of justice from which sense of legal responsibility alone protection and governmental efficiency can be secured among free people." "it is almost humorous to think that those gentlemen dread the destruction of a 'sense of local responsibility' which have in many years never punished a lyncher." The chief objection raised against the Dyer anti-lynching bill by its opponents is that it is unconstitutional because it provides for the intervention and usurpation of State police rights by the Federal government. The most obvious and effective answer to the Federal Constitution and its enforcement. This amendment was voted for almost solidly by the Democratic representatives from the "Solid South" and it was ratified by the Democratic "Solid South" Sintofe. How illogical and absurd it is, then, to contend that it is unconstitutional for the Federal government to enter a State and arrest a man for the salt- of liquor, but unconstitutional for the Federal government to enter the same State and prevent the same man from being hanged or burned at the stake. The plea that the antilynching bill is unconstitutional is thoroughly answered in the reports made to the House and Senate by the respective Judiciary committees of each. These reports are very voluminous and quote decision after decision of the United States Supreme Court. Both the House and Senate] committee reports state: "The Fourteenth amendment to the Constitution provides that no State 'shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws' and further provides that 'the Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.' ... It is thus made the duty of the Congress under the Constitution to enact such laws as may be 1 needful to assure that no State shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." The committees quote former Justice Brewer upon this point to the effect that the Fourteenth amendment prohibits any State from depriving any person of his life, liberty or property without due process of law, nor Ill BILL IS PUT WHICH ARE TO BE IE1TE ADJOURNMENT'. I shall it deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the law. It is pointed out that a I State may deprive a person within its jurisdiction of his life or liberty or deny him the equal protection of the law in two ways: First, by an act of the legisative department of the State; second, by an act of any executive authority, such as a governor, sheriff or police official. Another decision cited i?i the report of each of the committees is that handed down by the Fourteenth amendment. This decision, like that of Justice Brewer, held that while it was the duty of the State to see to it that each of its citizens was given oqual protection of the law. it was equally the duty of the United States to see to it that no State denied equal protection of the law to any citizen. In summing up the arguments in behalf of the anti-lynching bjll, the Senate committee's report quotes as follows from a brief submitted it by Air. Aloorfield Story: "Either Congress has the power to pass effective legislation against lynching, or the United States cannot protect its own citizens from murder and their property from destruction at the hands of their fellow citizens who are subject to its jurisdiction. It can impose burdens, but it cannot defend rights. It can tax, but it cannot save the taxpayer. That lynching is a nation-wide evil, that no action by the States can be expected and that the evil should be abated for the sake of the nation quite as much as for the sake of those who suffer by it must be conceded. "To admit that the nation is powerless to abate such an evil and to protect its own citizens is to admit that our government is weaker than any other civilized government. This is an admission which we should be ashamed to make." In speaking of the reasons why Congress proposed the Fourteenth amendment which forbids any State from depriving any citizen of his life or liberty or denying him equal protection of the laws and as to why the Congress included the proviso that it should have "the power to enforce by appropriate legislation the provisions of this article," the brief states: "The situation which this amendment was intended to meet was a very practical one, and the amend..nnnl.-,. .? ...... <-t .U.x,. calculated to accomplish its purpose, not to defeat it. The enfranchised Negroes were dwelling in communities where they had been held as slaves, and in those communities had been regarded and treated as chattels, not as men. Their elevation to the rank of citizens was regarded with absolute hostility, and it was clear that their rights would not be respected unless they were maintained by the United States. The amendment was passed to secure these rights and to give Congress the power to maintain them. It never was the intention of the people who adopted the amendment that the States so recently in rebellion should be able to nullify the amendment by non-action, and should be able to plead HJiat the persons who trampled on the hew citizens were merely private persons for whose acts the State was not responsible." The Senate committee's majority report closes with these words: "American citizenship is indeed a badge of honor; it should be, and this bill seeks to make it, a shield of protection to every American citizen?man, woman and child, native and naturalized?who stands on American soil, hedged around and guarded, as they are, by the Constitution of the United States." 15,007 ELIGIBLE TO VOTE IN RICHMOND ELECTIONS.
