THOSE MEETINGS AGAIN
Larry C. Gilstrap has an article in
this issue which he calls a reply to an
editorial in The Sentinel two weeks ago.
Mr. Gilstrap's article is very good, but
we fail to see any 'reply'' to our article
in it. lie argues that the people have
a right to hold meetings as they are do
The Sentinel did not.say the people
h ad no right to 1101(1 meetings and dis
cuss laws; but on the other hand we
;aid "the people undoubtedly have that
right''. \Ve did say meetings and mu
tinued agitation of the conscription law
may very easily lead to things wkich
would cause trouble, and happenings in
othr liarte of the. country since have
proven our statemlents true. Weu dh
not say there will he trouble in Picken
county and we certainly trust not. Iut
it is so easy in things ol' this kind for
somne Iterole to go just a little too far.
We still can see no good that can
