In t he course of a recent editorial
with reference to the plest'of the sa

should "be fair" to them declares:
Men who have disregarded everv ele
ment of fairness In dealing with the
community are now hanging about
the people's skirts and whlnlnu, be
fair: When a saloonkeeper deiiberatly
violates the law, and does it again
and again, and the law relating to
his license Is Invok-d, shall we be less
ready to act because forsooth it Is a
saloon? Because a saloon has gone
on year alter year violating the law
bidding defiance to public sentiment,
vitiating the atmosphere or Its neigh
borhood, It does not thereby establish
a "right" to continue such conduct.
There arc io 'Vquatter righ'-s" in the
realm of bad morals or law breaking.
They should go! If there is talk or,
thought of fairness In connection
with the saloon subject, why not also
be fair with one's oath of office, with
one's city, with one's own decent
