University of Virginia:
T regret exceedingly the sad misfor
tune that occurred here yesterday. As
an earnest of our sympathy we have can
celed all football engagements."

LAWLESS LOCALITY LASHED
'Harvest of Seeds Sown for Years,'
Says One Pastor "Disgrace Xot

ins; It Necessary" Editor.
CAIRO. 111.. Nov. H. Cairo was In the
grasp of a firm authority today and it
was the quietest Sunday that has been
its lot in years. Saloons were not open
and the few attempts to evade the order
of Governor Deneen in this respect met
with quick detection, several arrests be
ing made by the militia.
Half a dozen pastors lashed the consti
tuted authorities without stint, telling
their congregations the lynchings were
likely to prove a blessing in disguise.
"Cairo stands disgraced before the
world, but the disgrace is not in the
lynchings," said Rev. George M- Bab
cock, of the Church of the Redeemer,
Episcopalian. "The real disgrace lies in
the fact that the city has allowed lawless
elements to control civic affairs. In the
same alley In which Miss Pelley was
killed there have been
young women within
four attacks on
year. This defi
ance of law and order made the lynchings
necessary to secure justice."
"The lynchings were the harvest of the
seeds of lawlessness that have been sown
In Cairo for years." said the Rev. A. S.
Buchanan, of the Presbyterian Church.
"Cairo's disgrace is not the mob, but
the conditions that made the mob neces
sary." said F. A. Thielecke, editor of the
Cairo Bulletin. "For these conditions the
authorities, from the Circuit Court benoii
down to the Deputy Sheriff, bailiffs and
the police department of the city, are re
sponsible." LIFE GIVEN FOR RABBIT
