“A Valid Reason” American Sentinel 14, 41, p. 642.

MR. HOMERULE to Mr. Forcerule: My friend, why do you shoot down these poor savages to whom we have come for their benefit?

MR. FORCERULE (looking at some savages he has killed): I told them to submit to my authority, and as they refuse, I had to shoot them.

Mr. H. but might you not have left them alone, even though they did not want to be under your authority?

Mr. F. No, indeed; for if I had, they would probably have got to quarreling and might kill each other!
