torles about Greeks In Omaha and South
Omaha, I wish to explain to the people
of this great nation the character ' of the
Greek. They area most .law-abiding people,
very Industrious and peaceful and always
mind their own business a proof of thla
being the reason why they did not return
fire when the mob destroyed their property
and put them out of their homes. They all
could fight, but they believe In the law,
and left wrong to be tried and punished by
The reason that the orators of last Sun
day's meeting Incited the crowd to attack
the Greek no doubt every American cltl
cen can aee. But I ask these orators, "Do
they realise how the civilised natlona of
the whole world rank us 7" And "Did they
realise when they urged the mob to de
stroy property they were destroying the
property tf American cltlseps and tax
payers?" " ' .
We aa a law-abiding people realise that
there are many undesirable Greeks, but can
any nation say "It has no black sheep
within Its folds?" And la there any law
that aaya "the Innocent must suffer for
the deeds' of (he badf ' "
In strength of this defense I appeal. to
every -American ,who bas visited 3rc
and knowa of It aa a nation.
