Whatever may hive contributed to the present state of affairs, 0' whoever may be responsible foi same is now not of moment; we call on every man and woman who Joves decency and stands for law and order, regardless of church affilia tion, or whether they be members ol any church, to let it be known tc those in authority that they are not only ready to give moral background to law enforcement, but to make a fight, if necessary, for common de cency in our city without fear or favor. We have sufficient informatio: to be more specific and definite, bj deem it the part of wisdom, desir ing to be fair to all pa.ties concern ed, to let this suffice at present. But be it understood that this is th: of a crusade against the flagrant and outrageous moral con j ditionf obtaining, and a call to our officers arid citizens to stand for a i moraldean-up.
