No veiled shafts are launched against

No destructive propaganda is sent

-I AM A REPUBLICAN"
G. 0. P. CHAIRMAN M a Y SEE THE
John T. Adams, chairman of the
Republican National Committee, asks:
"Why should Attorney General Daug
herty resign without a hearing?" Mr.
Adams adds: “That is not the Ameri

ter the St. Louis Aigus says:
Surely Chairman Adams is not well
informed on the American way of do
ing things. To condemn without a
hearing is the American way. It may
be, however, that the effects of thia
kind of operation, which is quite
prevalent in the United States, has
not cut quite so dose to Chairman
There are thousands of citizens in
this country who have been con
demned to death, without a bearing
before any court or tribunal under
a regular form of government. We
would call attention to the lynching
record In the United States which re
flects the spirit of America. Does
not Mr. Adams know that lawless
ness breeds lawlessness'
It's the same mob spirit that has
encouraged the lynchings of thou
sands of innocent victims, that’s cry
“Crucify him." It is but the natural
outcome of unchecked mobism that
has slain her thousands, but only in
a different form
If Chairman Adams is alarmed at
the power of the “Mob Spirit" In Am

spirit. As long as the least citizen

law and order, for the protection of
life and property, for the continua

have made this nation great, and for
everything else that is calculated to
promote, not to retard nor destroy,
the general welfare of the people
without regard to creed, color or
race. The proudest boast of an Am
