Why should poor drunken Indians and dopy negroes be taken into police court and fined and let those who are clothed with high official authority get down in the alleys, debauch the name of Pontotoc county, bring our respectable citizenship into ridicule among the peo- ple of adjoining counties, rape the goddess of justice, and do other things that are scandalous and reproach- ful to civilization, go unfilled, -unjailed and honored as though high respectability had been maintained? Why should the negro choc makers be molested and the drug-store-bootlegger be allowed to go on in his damnable, home-breaking, man-killing, society-debasing business of peddling the rottenest rot-gut that ever went down a man's throat? Why do we fine a man for going out in the fields and shooting quails a few days ahead of the "open sea- son" and at the same time allow a bunch of roughnecks to come in to town, tank up on a few bottles of the Old Roman's favorite brand of "Jake" and ride out of town through the residence districts shooting their guns( and raising hell generally? Why do we allow venders to do business under the guise of a respectable vocation when, if we had a few of vhat used to be termed "decent" saloons, their places of business would not be considered even by the negroes as a fit hanging-out place?
