At the Quack meeting, Friday night
Lawyer Pinkett discussed for us the
pending Anti-lynch Bill. He thinks
be a good one, if it is passed and en
forced. Some of the points of th2
bill he stressed are as follows: “Any
officer of any State, who possesses
the power to protect a ' person from
a mob or riotcus assemblage, and who
fails, neglects, or refuses to protect
such individual, shall be punished by
a fine, not exceeding $5,000, or im
prisonment not exceeding five years
Lawyer Pinkett also cited that
since 1895, records of lynchings have
been kept, and that there have been
4000 lynchings. the majority being
negroes. Naturally, this bill, if passed
will diminish the crime of lynching
Lawyer Pinketts talk enlightened all
of us, and we are grateful to him.
