Klan Man Speaks to Large Crowd Monday
At the Baptist Tabernacle in Caddo Monday night Rev. John A. Tabor of Dallas delivered his famous lecture on Americanism to a very large crowd. All seats were filled, the benches from the church were placed and filled, and hundreds stood throughout the two hour and a half discourse.
None seemed to tire, so interested were they in what he had to say and the way he said it. He was witty, pathetic, powerful, and eloquent.
His defense of the Ku Klux Klan was superb, showing how they stand for pure homes, the church, the constitution, the upholding of law and order, and defense of pure womanhood.
He spoke of a great many evils in this country that should be corrected, and which the Klan proposes to correct; one of them is ignorant immigration from other countries which compels free American labor to compete pauper labor. He favored closing the door of immigration until the immigrant could speak our language and understand and approve our institutions.
Many out of town people were present, Durant, Kenefick, Bokchito, Bennington, and Caney being well represented.
He delivered this lecture last Friday and Saturday nights at Durant and will speak at Kenefick Monday night.
