she read her protest before three
societies of the American Mohcanics,
who are iblo to sit up and take
nourishment now that (the war .Is
over, and that she did this because '
she was afraid the Post would not
publish any criticism of Irish
Catholics. Ruth and her class had
better taks another course In the I
littlo red Fcliool house, which they
claim to bo sponsors for, before at
tempting to write intelligently on
any subject, and printers' strikes
would be ually occurrences If they
had to hindle that class of copy.
A writer In the New York press,
discussing the Carson Insult to
America, 'ays:
"The United States will mind Its
own business, but it will not aban
don Its Democratic principles, Its
humanitarian sympathies and Its
international rights. Finally we
suggest to Sir Edward Carson as
a preliminary to his advising the
United States to mind Its own busl-1
ness that ho advise Great Britain
to mind h.r own business; to stop
flooding rthls country with pro-'
British propaganda and anti-Irish I
propaganda and propaganda opposed '
to everything that Great Britain ds ,
opposed to; to stop distpnting news '
and falsifying faots and misinform-1
ing our people as to the occurrences
of the world, to stop (interfering in
our personal and domestic affairs
by plotting to control cables and
news associations and American
newspapers In her own interests and
to tho disadvantage of our American
people an-J our American Govern
ment. Criticism, like charity, should
begin at home."
The number of murders and
lynchings that have disgraced our
civilization has moved legislators In
many States which have abolished
capital punishment to urge that it
be restored as tho penalty for
murder. We will not enter Into a
discussion whether or not capital
punishment has been a deterrent.
Wo do not believe that the abolition
of capital punishment is the real
reason for tho Increase in murders.
We believe that one of tho most
effective cures for crime is the
certainty of punishment. There are
too many appeals to the "unwritten
law." Claims of self-defense, based
on the fact that the murdered man
"reached for- his hip pocket," tempo
rary insanity, -which often Is nothing
more than uncontrolled anger, has
i turned many a murderer loose upon
tho community. Even dn cases where
tho murder was committed to com
plete a robbery, or when a criminal
was resisting arrest, there has not
been that certainty of punishment
that would create a respect for the
I value of hi'inan life. It is a noto
, rlous fact Lint the number of homl
'cldes Is larger In proportion to he
nnntil.irlnn hi ilin Tlnlrori Sl-itm tionfl
in any civilizezd country in th
world. In Europe a man accused'of
murder is seldom turned loose un
less nis ipiensoi is clean ana un
answerable. If the full penalty of
present laws was meted out to crimi
nals, if even-handed Justice was the
controlling tpirit of our courts, It
would be the most effective check
to crime aside from the proper
moral training of our youth. One
thing Is iertain, if the number of
murders lu not to continue our
courts must make the criminal feel
that if found guilty he will certainly
