McKinney Ku Klux
Writes The Record.
The following letter was witten
on a Ku Klux letter head and bore
the official seal of McKinney
Klan No. 120, and explains
article that follows it ;
“McKinney, Texas, Jan. 27,
1922. Celina Record, Celina, Tex.
“Gentlemen:- Hereto you will
find attached an article concern-
ing the Ku Klux Klan, which is
sent to you for publication,
“Your readers will quite likely
be glad to get the facts concern-
ing this order. Yours sincerely,
“Knights of the Ku Klux Klan,
“McKinney Klan No. 120.“^
The Ku Klux Klan still lives,
because it was not born to die.
It has been maligned by the prej-
udiced and misrepresented by the
ignorant' It has been denounc-
ed by the vicious who naturally
seek its destruction. Some mis-
guided good citizens have criti-
cised the Klan; many bad citizens
alert to the danger that threatens
their criminal purposes and acts
have sought to destroy the Klan.
The good citizens ultimately will
endorse the Klan; the bad citizens
always will condemn it.
The record has been written.
The Attorney General’s Depart-
ment of the United States has in-
vestigated carefully and found
no law violated. The United
States Secret Service, after a
searching in vestigation, has found
not the slighest evidence of an
unlawful act. A house Commit-
tee of Congress adjourned with-
out being able to develop any
fact to warrant any charge of
However, the assault on the Ivu
Klux Klan continues. An organ-
ized propaganda, backed by pow-
erful interests through the press
and otherwise, persistently and
systematically has made war on
this organization because of two
things: (1) The regalia worn by
its members in parade; (2) Some
sporadic incidents of white-cap-
ping by unknown parties reputed
to be members of the Klan.
Let it be understood once for
all that the regalia worn by mem-
bers of the Ku Klux Klan in pa-
rade is not unlawful. When the
Klan parades in uniform it does
not violate any law. The charge
that such parades are lawless is
unfounded and ridiculous.
Any acts of white-capping here-
tofore committed, or that may be
committed hereafter, were and
Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
Such acts are contrary to the
aims, scope and ideals of our or-
der. The Ku Klux Klan does not
stand for tar, feathers and the
lash. It is not against the law i
but for the law. It would not su-
presede the courts in the orderly
the administration of justice but
would support and strengthen the
courts in such administration, and
that only by proper and lawful
The Knights of the Ku Klux
Klan is here to stay. They will
not disband; they will expand.
They have a mission. They will
be busy about the work that call-
ed their order into existence.
They comprise the truest and the
best citizenship of the Republic.
They are against every evil in-
fluence everywhere in society and
in government. They are against
immoralities in our national life
and will cleanse it. They are sick
of the loopholes in our laws and
will close them. They are tired
of unfaithful officers of the law
and will supplant them. They
are for the majesty of the law
and will maintain it. They love
their country and will save it.
They salute one flag and will fol-
low it. They know only one gov-
ernment and are ready always
and everywhere to die for it.

bles and digestiye disorders are

A Belated Announcement
The Record is in receipt of the
“Mr. and Mrs. Charles Henry
Durning announce the marriage
uf their daughter Flara Belle to
Mr. Harold Eugene Welker on
Wednesday, August the fourth,
nineteen hundred and twenty,
The bride is the daughter of
County Commissioner During
and wife of Grayson county, who
live five miles west of Van
Alstyne, and the groom is the son
of Mr. Mrs. L. P. Welker of Van
The reason the announcement
was not made at the time is the
fact that the groom was attending
Georgia-Tech College at Atlanta,
Ga., and wanted to complete the
course. The bride has visited
Celina on various occasions
The large two-story home of
D. N. Bates, located two blocks
west of the public school building,
was burned to the ground Sun-
day noon, and very little of the
contents was saved.
The fire started in an upstairs
room on the northwest corner,
and was probably noticed by Miss
Cornish, who had just returned
from church and built a fire in a
stove in the room and set about
writing a letter. She had writ-
ten about two pages and looked
up to find the fire under great
headway. About the same time
persons on the streets noticed
smoke issuing from the roof and
turned in the alarm.
The chemical engine arrived in
pretty quick time, but the fire
was too far advanced when the
alarm was turned in for the engine
to accomplish anything. In fact
it is believed that the fire must
have started from an electric
wire, as it could hardly have
gained such headway in so short
a time from the stove. Besides
the stovepipe went into a brick
flue and there was hardly a
chance that it could catch there,
Mr. Bates said he examined the
flues during the holidays and that
this flue seemed in good condition.
Four of the school teachers
boarded at the Bates home and
all lost about all the clothing and
other possessions that were in
their rooms when the fire started.
Miss Cornish grabbed an armful
of things and rushed out with
them, but could return no more.
The loss of these ladies is not
far from $1,000. Miss Cornish
lost half a month’s salary in
The residence was worth
probably $6,000 and was insured
for $2,000 and there was $500 on
on the furniture. Mr. Bates loss
is not less than $3,000. A baby
grand piano, practically new, be-
longing to Mrs. Nell Beeman,
and valued at $1,000, was'&badly

W. T. Helms was puzzled the'
other day to receive a letter from
Dallas containing a money order
for $1.00 from John F. Reagan.
