FLACK, ' 23c2 County Veterinarian. When Pardoning Becomes a Clime Bowerman's Release: of MeBaln Caus es Citizens To, Think of Lynch Law. Editor: When In the administra tion of Justice, where a crime baa been committed against the peace and dignity of the State, and ithe State has brought the offender justice, and the Jury and & large number of the largest taxpayers in the county where the offense was committed ask for pardon or parole the executive head of the state Is then expected to carefully .weigh, the matter before him and use discretion ary Judgment in his disposal of the matter. But where a heinous crime has been committed, (he offender brought to Justice and the executive con spires to and does release) the; offend er without the consent or even, know ledge of the taxpayers or officers (save perhaps the District Attorney) of the county where the crime was committed and who bore the burden of the courts to bring such crimin al to Justice, is a disgrace to any state and will make the people say with one of old: "On what ha this our Caesar feasted that he has grown so greatT" The greater part of our people wish to be law-abiding citizens but such procedure as the above mentioned is planting the germs that will grow Into conditions that will recognize "Judge Lynch" as the onlyi means of dealing with men who revel lnj death agonies or gloat over the bodies of their brother men. There always has been and per haps always will be a criminal ele ment among the people. When such learn that they can kill Indiscrimin ately and if apprehended and con victed that only a short time ,will lapse till they will be set free, they will feel but little restraint and neither life nor property will be se cure.
