LYNCHING AND PARDONS
Since President Roosevelt, seconded j
by a number of state governors, asked j might be well if the legislature would
newspapers, preachers and teachers to j provide that courts be held more fr?
take up the subjecf of lynching and de- I quently , or continuously; and that less
nounce It, there has been a terrible In- j time be required to elapse between a
veighing against the crime. The public judgment and its execution particularly
mind has been thoroughly refreshed ! in cas.-s of capital punishment. It may
on the subject of lynching. Writers
and speakers took their cue. Columns
and pages have been written, lectures
and sermons delivered on the subject
Anyone who does not know that in this j
country we lynch people, Is convicted i
of blindness and deafness. And yet
with all the writing and talking, it
would be hazardous to say that Judge
Lynch has been buried. No negroes
have b?en roasted the past few days
but the country has been trained to
suspect there are those ready to apply
the torch upon sufficient provocation.
It cannot be said at this time, that the
crusade against lynching has b?en al
together successful. There is as yet
no convincing evidence the evil is
, stamped out. In fact the course of
procedure adopted may be considered
an Innovation and its efficacy may be
doubted. Appeal to criminals to re
frain from crime hag never been ef
fectual. The only result of the crasad?
so far discernible is the attracting of
genera! attention to the growing tend- j
ency to lynching, which. a", agree, is a
serious menaca to the government itself
The cause is yet to be agreed upon, the
The alarm, it Is to be noted, is sound
ed from the executive department of
government The president and gover
nors speak as individuals but their ut
terances cannot be stripped of official
significance and must be treated ac
cordingly. It Is strongly hinted by the president
and governors that the remedy lies
in a reform in the co-ordinate branches
of government, the legislative and ju
dicial departments. The legislature, it
is suggested, should enact laws bring
ing the legal procedure nearer the
standard of p?rfection and the applica
tion of these laws should be freed from
every vestige of technicality and delay.
This lecture from the executive and
addressed to the legislative and judi
cial departments is reactive and brings
to the front the question of the duty of
the executives federal and state. It
may be conceded that the course of
legal procedure needs amendment. It
The world to-day is full of innocent sufferers from that most loathsome
disease, Contagious Blood Poison. People know in a general way that it is
a bad disease, but if all its horrors could be brought before them they
would shun it as they do the Leprosy. Not only the person who contracts It

be admitted that technicalities some
times stand in the way of justice and
that there are sometimes unneccessary
delays in criminal" trials. But these
are not the only nor principal means of
cheating the gallows of its victim, pent-
tentlaries of their Inmates. Chief ex
ecutives through the panlpning power
may come between the criminal and
his deserts and this they have freely
'l nrougn the pardon of governors
murderers are unhung and convicted
rapists, "hieves, thugs and cut-throats
infest the tountry. The pardon record
of the governors of the forty-five states
for the past ten years opened to public
gaze would be appalling and one would
b? left to ask if there be anyone left
in the penitentiaries. Pardoning power
abused is an evil concomitant with
lynching and executives however ve
hemently they may denounce lynching
must accept responsibility for the
grinding of the pardon mills.. For ex
ample of abuse of the pardoning power
one need not go outside of Oregon. The
late Gvernor Pennoyer was the record
maker for the state. During his term
the prison gates swung outward and
the rate at which convicts were re
leased through his misplaced sympa
thy was alarming. Many of Pennoyers
pardoned criminals were sent back to
the penitentiary before his term ex
pired. Governor Lord, his successor,
pardoned fewer during the first two
yeas of his term, but towards th lat
ter end the flood gates were opened.
Governor Geer used the pardoning pow,.
er more sparingly than either Pennoy
er or Lord. Governor Chamberlain has
occupied the executive chair but a few
months and his record, considering his
contact with criminal life as prosecut
ing attorney is not what might b? ex.
potted. The cure for lynching the gov
ernor said, lies in refraining from the
crime of rape and yet one, of Governor
Chamberlains first official acts, if mem
ory serv-s us right, was the pardoning
cf a rapist. More recently he inter
fered with the sentence of the court
and prevented the hanging of young

Peacock who shot down a cltix.n of
Polk county. Peacock had counsel and
a fair trial ami physicians were sum
moned and testified to bis sanity before
a jury that found him guilty. From
the circuit court the cause was trans
ferred to the chief executive and the
governor summoned some physicians in
the employ of the state and perhaps
A h.wing was had and
the governor decided the accused was
a degenerate and should not be put to
death. The executive department thre
fore set asld the Judgment of thevoourt
notwithstanding a protest from the
states attorney and the people of the
community where the crime was com-,
mitted. In a statement to the public
explanatory of his action the governor
set out the fact that striking irregu
larities In the rotundity of the nnir
deteis tody were discovered and cogni
ance was not taken of these defects by
th? court. As described by the gov
ernor. Peacock Is a miserable deform

scarce half made up. a modem counter
part of the popular conception of
Shakespeare's King Richard III. By
measurement It was found to be as far
from a point on this condemed mur
derer's breast back to his shoulders as
t-om his shoulders down to his hips.
Then it was found the head did not fit
properly on the shoulders. But lack of
comlin?ss did not stay his murderous
hand nor convince tie Polk county
court that he should be exempt from
the operations of the law. By a jury of
twelve he was found guilty of murder
in the first degree and by petition the
people acquainted with the circumstan
ces of the killing asked that the courts
decree be carried out. but the governor,
set aside the judgment and turned
down the petition an act calculated
to sew seeds of 'ynch law in the minds
of law abiding people. The exiense of
a costly trial, counted for naught with
the pardoning power, and the people
who bore the expense are left without
the security, to which by law, they
Peacock will hardly be released from
the penitentiary by Governor Chamber
lain, but other governors will fill the
executive chair, and Peacock, with his
nose pressed against the bars of his ;
cell and gazing into space may excite j
the over-compassionate nature of an-
other executive on his rounds of prison j
inspection and it is not at all unlikely j
the people of Polk county will again !
be at the mercy of his gun. The same j
considerations that lead to a eommu-
tation of sentence, would move a Pen
noyer to- give Peacock his freedom.

ecutive department of the state If the

off Polk county citizens is strung up,

on his breast back to his shoulders as
from the shoulders down to the tendons
of his heels.

The antl-lynching movement wns di
rected particularly against lynching of
negroes in the south. Negroes arc
lynched in the south because it is there
they live in great numbers anil it is
there th?y terrorize with their inhuman
Crimea. Since the days of slavery the
southern negro has developed a species
id bestiality that has been a promoter of
lynching bees in the south and these
unspeakable crimes have much to do
with the anti-negro feeling and it Is a
fe?ling that cannot safely be ignored
in appointing negroes to federal po
sitions. The president has not recog-
nized the conditions and used the di
plomacy that might hav been imploy
'A in making his appointments from
among the negro race and, while it
probably cannot be said that any lynch
ings, are directly traceable to his ap
pointnunts.they have Intensif)' d thefeel
ing agaln.-ft the negro in many places
thus promoting '.he crime he would now
stop through public appeal. Thehonesty
of purpose on the part of the prresldent
and governors in their endeavor to
check the growth of lynching, none will
question, but it will require their co
operation along lin jg of official duty to
put it down
Though the spring season was late,
attended by rains, the outlook for good
crops Is good. Grain and fruit in the
Willamette valley look well and If rain
at picking time does not interfere a
good crop of hops will be saved. In
southern Oregon, the peach crop Is re
ported somewhat short on account of
late frosts but other fruits, grain and
hay promise a fair yield. In eastern
Oregon grain Is turning out fairly well
and Is commanding a good price. Live

and have money to loam The prune
