TJ1H lynching of Loo M. Frank has sent Mhivcr of hor
ror through the nation outside of the south, It has
focused the attention of the world upon the silent change
that war. reconstruction and subsequent commercializa
tion have "worked in perversion of the old ideals of the
once chivalrous south.
The dastardly deed shows that the section that tol
erates lawlessness, breeds lawlessness and that brutal and
inhuman practices brutalize and inhunianize those tolerat
There are no extenuating circumstances attending the
Frank lynching. It was not done in hot blood to satisfy
outraged sentiment. It was a cold-blooded conspiracy to
murder a helpless prisoner, who was paying the greatest
penalty the law imposes for crime. The lynching was a
crime of the Italian vendetta order and typifies the chiv
alry of the Kit Klux Klan and tho night-rider, whose brav
ery consists in cowardly assassination, by masked bands,
of the helpless.
The south has not kept pace with the growth of the na
tion. The unbridled prejudices of ignorance run riot. f
a negro is suspected, he is burned alive without a hearing.
If he is legally executed, the affair is made a public holi
day and excursions bring thousands to gloat over the pub
lic gallows and the dyiiuj contortions of the victim. Any
attempt to punish the cowardly perpetrators of dastardly
crimes results in death by night-riders of the informers.
The soutji is the most backward portion of the ITilited
States. Here are the greatest'numher of illiterates. Here
still exist the racial prejudices, intolerance and bigotry
that always accompany ignorance. Education is neglected,
child labor legalized and human progress overlooked.
It is true the south is handicapped by the negro problem
but the white is as much neglected as the negro per
haps more. The poor whites of the hills still lead the prim
itive life their ancestors lived a century ago and their
children are either slaving in the mills ortoiling in isolated
ignorance on the farm.
The boasted material progress of the new south consists
in the building up of industries and resultant cities in
dustries that, utilizing cheap labor, exploit the people and
create a new wealthy class, but do not look after the wel
fare of the toilers, whose condition has grown worse rather
than better, industries that frown upon education because
it creates a demand for betterment that leads to industrial
unrest and higher wages.
Flunk's murderers will not be punished. There will be
no attempt to punish them, though their identity is easily
discoverable. Moreover, public sentiment in tho south
applauds the act which speaks louder than words of what
isolation, ignorance and industrial exploitation have done
and are doing for the new south.

"Hypocrites" will bo shown at tho
