Attorney General Palmer, after
making various test cases in the fed federal

of the country's ablest criminal law lawyers,

by printing and circulating literature
or by the spoken word.
"(4.) Nor is the advising and
openly advocating the unlawful, ob

In other words, the United States is
a wide-open country to every native
born moron and every alien agitator

sabotage, obstruct the enforcement of
laws and preach treason and anarchy.
The nation is at the mercy of red pro propagandists

President Wilson, in his latest mes message,

SHOOT RECKLESS CHAUFFEURS
Senator Fletcher has about the
same feeling in regard to reckless
auto drivers, who, in an attempt to
appear spectacular, daring, expert or
just don't care drivers take chances
which too often result, in death to one
or more persons and injuries, some
,times for life or others, as we have.
In speaking on the floor of the Sen Senate
ate Senate the other day Senator Fletcher
"I would vote to acquit a man who
drew his pistol and shot down a reck

group of people waiting for a street
Senator A shurst of Arizona burst
"A citizen will soon have to arm
himself and shoot down some of the
drivers who, with a cynical disregard
for human life, run down old men,
women and babies."
The other advocate of shooting the
drivers was Senator Myers of 'Mon 'Montana,
tana, 'Montana, who declared:
"About the only remedy seems to
ba for pedestrians to go armed and
to shoot the chauffers who approach
them in disregard of the law. There
are drivers! in Washington who ought
to be shot down like wild animals at
Aii these expressions were made on
the floor of the Senate when Senator
Fletcher alluded to the killing of Mrs.
Augustus Willard of Palatka. Fla.,
wife of a former member of the
House. She was standing near the
car tracks waiting for a street car
when Charles E. Jones, a colored
chauffeur, ran her down. Jones was
exonerated, and this action caused
Senator Fletcher to say:
"Perhaps the next man who does a
thing like that will be given a medal
by the coroner."
