There can be no doubt in the
minds of unprejudiced-men as to
the demoralizing effect of lynch
ing. Mob law is worse than no
law, in some instances; in oth-
ers, it must be admitted, it has
served as a restraint to the spmt
Despite the fact that scores of
negroes are lynched annually,
they continue to commit barbar-
ous crimes, with the certainty o
death before them. Not alone is
the negro the criminal, but many-
whites as well.
In view of this fact, it must be
eaid that mob lav., like prohibi-
tion, doesn't prohibit We will
go further: mob law is a most
dangerous element in our pres-
ent sociological conditions—one
to be dreaded as an enemy to
our fundamental principles of
government. Both it and its
antithesis, government by in
junction, belong in the class of
extreme evils of the present day,
The recent case of a Kansas
mob that lynched the wrong
man, under the beat and excite-
ment of the moment, is but
one instance of the evil results
of mob law. There are many
other ways in which such law
might prove far more detriment-
al to the country, since they
would affect the lives and inter-
est of every person instead of
But it is safe to predict that
mob violence will continue under
the sociological conditions now
prevalent in this country. It has
its birth and existence in public
sentiment, and public sentiment
is moulded by the effect of ad-
ministration of the prevailing
laws of the country. True, we
may not openly advocate lynch-
ing; we may even denounce it.
Yet every sane man knows that
united condemnation and action
on the part of the great majority
of our people would stamp out
the evil to such an extent that
it would be practically unknown.
In such a state of affairs where
mob violence is a constant men-
ace to our best institutions of
free government, it bespeaks a
weakness Bomewhere. There
must be something wrong with
society: and as society is regula-
lated by government, there must
ba something weak ia our gov-
Probably, at last, there is some
truth in the claim set up by de-
fenders of the mob evil, that the
ends of justice are too often de-
feated by mercenary lawyers
and scheming politicians,
