IS B "I allude to the mob spirit which recently here and there very frequently has shown its head amongst us, not in any single region, but in many and widely seperated parts of the country. There has been many lynchings, and every one of them has been a blow at the heart of ordered law and humane justice. "No man who loves America, no man who really cares for her fame and honor and character or who is tiuly loyal to her institutions, can justify mob actions while the courts of justice are open and the government of the states and the Nation are ready and able to do their duty. "We are rt this very moment righting lawless passions. Germany has outlawed herself among the nations because she has disregard the sacred obligations of law and has made lynchers of her armies Lynchers emulate her disgraceful example. I, for my part, am eager to see every community in America rise above the level, with pride and a fixed resolution which no man or set of men can afford to despise.
