entirely out of order and in quite
poor taste. It is true that Gov.
McConnell's manner of taking re
cognition of the threatened outlaw
ery in Latah county was charac
teristicaliy offensive and insulting:
and this, together With the sheriff's
primitive idea of reparte, kept in
front- the petty side of a personal
quarrel and left out of sight the
main question with which citizens
are concerned. Sheriff Campbell
says that "his ofiice will be co
ducted rigidly is accordance ivith
law," but the fact is that while the
sheriff is hunting up the law or
some other unknown quantity
prisoners are allowed to escape or
to get hold of deadly weapons and
mobs may be forming or acting
The history of lynch law teems
with cases in which tbe sheriff knew
nothing of the affair until alter it
had passed the preventative stage,
Meanwhile if the governor, as the
civil and military head of the state,
offers a precautionary suggestion or
timely help to a subordinate topre
vent the law being outraged he is
told by the sheriff to "keep your
nose strictly out of my business."
It cannot be out of order for a
courageous press and for courageous
men who care more for truth than
for temporary applause to urge
peace officials to prove their ability
to mantain law and protect the
life and property of citizens by
be well to state higher up and even
hold the state up to criticism. The
people pay for legislatures, for the
execution of the laws. They pay
for the protection of life and prop
erty. In many instances tbe state
has taken the pay' and fallen far
short of faithful and efficient ser
vice. When tbe government fails
to protect the citizen without in
fluence or power and deliberately'
captures and turns him over to the
mob for unlawful execution the
people naturally inquire what such
government is here for. There is
in this country a growing determ
ination to hold both local and state
governments to a more faithful and
efficient enforcement of the laws
Whether our system of local gov
eminent is essentially weak or
whether the failure comes of a
trouble to use our methods to the
best advantage has not been fully
determined. Improvement is bad
ly needed somewhere and nothing
that political canidates can say will
stop the people in their determina
tion to secure it.—Lewiston Tri
bune.
The Mirror published at Moscow
Latah county, the home of the
"blooming idiot" sheriff Campbell,
has this to say: The Tribune evi
dently fails to comprehend the pos
ition which Gov. McConnell took
in regard to this matter or it
would not charge him with being
"offensive." He heard the rumor
about lynching when he was leav
ing town and called the sheriff to
the phone while waiting for the
train at Colfax. Of course the Gov
ernor was not able at that distance
to get down on his knees to the
sheriff of Latah county and proba
bly did not couch his language in
the form of a gentle supplication
but simply informed him of what
he had heard and offered assistance
if necessary, which was undoubted
ly right and would receive the ap
probation of every good citizen,
when the sheriff of Latah county
informed the governor of the state
that he should "attend to his own
business" and that he would "con
duct the business of his ofliice rig
idly in conformity with law" it
sounds a little "fishy" especially
when it is known that this same
populist sheriff has paid less atten
tion to the laws governing his offic
ial duties than any sheriff which
has ever held ofiice in the county,
or possibly in the state. Only about
a year ago he refused to arrest
some horse thieves when the war
rant was placed in his hands, and
as a consequence the theives es
caped and the owner of the horses
a poor man, lost his team, simply
through his negligence in failing to
do what the law says he must do
under penalty ot being removed
from office and paying a fine of
$500. Only a few weeks ago he re
fused to obey the order of the pro
bate court in serving a summons
and taking prisoner who was a wit
ness into the court, Every law
abiding citizen of Latah county
knows that the sheriff is ignorant
of his duties and will not obey the
law unless it just suits him or he is
compelled to, and that Gov. McCon
nell was fully justified in using all
the means in his power no matter
how harsh the
do his duty and mautain the digni
ty of the state.
