S'o laws however stringent can
make the idle industnuus the
thriftless provident or the drunken
.sober. Samuel Smiles.
There is something ludicrous and
yet tragic in the resolutions sent to
governors of some eastern states by
the Sons of Confederate veterans at
their recent meeting in Ardmore. The
resolutions deplored the uttitudo lnkin
by the east In regard to the negroes.
The resolutions no on to recount that
sometimes in the south when a
negro commits some heinous crime
that he is disposed of but that seine-
times in the east when a negro com-
mits a similar crime that his family
and his friends and his whole com
munity are harmed even wiped out.
The resolutions were apt retalia-
tions. For years certain political
and newspaper interests have been
heaping abuse upon the south for
its treutment of negro criminals for-
getting at the same time the beam
in their own eyes. (
The south lives in harmony with
the negro today. The negro appre-
ciates the broad fields and the friend-
ly commissaries "of the southland. He.
may not get equality hut ho does get
justice. In many parts of tho east
it is just the reverse.
