attacked in.sensational lurid and untruthful fashion
the attack may io more damage to the public mind
than the crime itself."
THE'CASE OF MR. EARLY
LIAR NO BETTER THAN THE THIEF
In his address at the laying of the corner stone
of a puMic building in Washington'jPresident Roose-
velt used the following language :
"There are in the body politic economic and
social many and grave evils and there is urgent ne-
cessity for the sternest war upon them. There shouH
be relentless exposure of and attack upou every man.

social life. I hail as a benefactor every writer or
The council has made a thorough investigation
of the h)drant deal. All who know anything about it
have testified under oath. Not one of them gave any
testimony that incriminated Mr. Early.
The Express insisted upon such investigation
the people wanted it Mr. Early wanted it and we
have had it. In the light of the facts brought out it is
time for the tongues that have been industriously
wagging to stop.There is no evidence that shows that
Mr. Early or any other connected with the city ad-
ministration did any wrong or intended to do wrong.
The Mayor and council may have acted hastily cr in-
discreetly in adopting the hydrant at the time they
did but they undoubtedly were acting within their
rights and no improper motive can be attributed to
There is no man who cannot be injured by a

TAKES THE FORM OF SLANDER HE MAY BE
WORSE THAN MOST THIEVES.lt puts a prem-
ium upon knavery truthtfully to attack an honest
man or even with hysterical exaggeration to assail
a bad man with untruth. An epidemic of indiscrimi-
nate assault upon character does not good but very
great harm. The soul of every scoundrel is gladdened
whenever an honest man is assailed or even when a
Svoundrei is untruthfully assailed
' One cf the chief counts against those who make
indiscriminate assault upon men in business or men
in public life is that they invite a reaction which is
sure to tell powerfully in favor of the unscrupulous
scoundrel who really ought to be attacked if possible
to be put in the penitentiary.
"Any excess is almost sure to invite a reaction;
and Lnfortunately the reaction.instead of taking the
form of punishment of those guilty of the excess is
very apt to take the form neither of punishment of the
unoffending or of giving immunity and even strength
to offenders. The effort to make financial or political
profit out of the destruction of character can only re-
sult in public calamity. Gross and reckless assaults on
character create a morbid and vicious public senti-
ment and at the same time act as a profound deter-
rent to able men of normal sensitivness and tend to pre-
vent them from entering the public service at any
for the Interurban $250 for the Oklahoma Ceetral and
on every list he is down for a liberal donation It is
an outrage for a man of this kind to be subjected to
such criticism. If there were any grounds for it the
Evpress would not hestitate a moment to condemn
whoever it was but now that the facts are known and
no blame is found to attach to Mr. Early it believes
he should be given justice and should be protected
from unjust attacks.

piece of descriptive writing.
