Whole State Shocked
'T'HE sudden pissing ot George W. Joseph, republican
nominee for the office of governor, was a distinct
shock to the people of the state of Oregon. Mr. Joseph
. was in his prime, really at the zenith of his career, and to
have him thus removed from the sphere of activity in
state affairs is an irreparable loss.
The true worth of the man was made apparent in the
recent primary campaign. He advocated policies foreign
to the opinion of a large and influential group in his party,
yet he carried his campaign to the masses and won a great
victory. People in both political parties had an abiding
faith in Mr. Joseph, and his victory in the primary was an
indication of the strength that certainly must have been
his had he been spared to lead his party in the genr-rJ
election. Just what his leadership might have been as gov
ernor is now but a matter of speculation, but it is safe to
say that his actions would have been guided by an hot. est
purpose, a heartfelt desire to serve the people of his state
A Reporter Is Killed
TT IS just barely possible in murdering Reporter Alired
J. Lingle the Chicago gangsters have gone a little too
far for their own good. Newspaper reporters are not, or
dinarily, especially honored members of the community.
They are not up on any pedestal. No one gives their call
ing the veneration that goes to such people- as doctors or
But when a newspaper man, in pursuit of his duty, fol
lows the news trail into a place where his temerity costs
his life, there seems to be something in the situation that
jars public opinion clear down to the bottom.
, Perhaps it is because the reporter or the editor is, in
a sense, a representative of all the people. He is the eye
and ear for the man in the street The ordinary citizen
depends on the newspaper man's integrity, his daring,
his zeal, for his knowledge about what is going on in the
world. When Lingle, for instance, pursued his inquiries
in the dark places of Chicago those deep abysses where
death is an ever-present threat, where all the structure
of order and decency that society has painfully reared is
held in contempt he was there as the representative of
all of us.
However that may be, organized crime invariably puts
its foot into it when it elects to put one of the news
gatherers out of the way.
The underworld of Canton, O., might give the Chi
cagoans a tip. Canton had a wide-open underworld a few
years ago. It also had a courageous newspaper editor
named Don Mellett, who swung his searchlight on this
underworld. Canton failed to get excited about it until
Mellett paid for his daring with his life. Then Canton
boiled over with indignation. It landed on its underworld
like a thousand of brick. The underworld, with its leaders
imprisoned, has never been the same since.
Chicago has been extraordinarily patient with its
gangs. For many years they have held open house in the
nation's second city, and the city has seemed willing to
tolerate them rather than rouse itself to the point of put
ting them down. But now it is, we repeat, just barely pos
sible that things will be different
For killing a reporter is, when you come right down
to it, gangland's last word in open defiance of society.
It is as if gangland had said: "Here you not only can't
1. ... .L. .1. . ,
"win uuiiik me tilings wc want to no, dui you
can't even find out about us. We don't want you to bother
us even to the extent of putting things about us in the !
newspapers. If you do, we'll shoot"
It will be interesting, now, to see what happens. Kill
ing a reporter has always been bad medicine. Will it prove
so in Chicago?
