Henry Lange was tarred and feathered following for refusing to buy a liberty bond. As he returned home from his arrest for disloyal utterances he was greeted by a mob eager to have him buy a bond, the mob brought Lange's banker along to issue a check. On the same page Marvin and Carl Livingston provide a public explanation of the large amount of what that has been found at the houses and brought on an investigation by Lieutenant Gregory in Carlsbad, New Mexico.
