way lieeii n nmxlmof the law that tho ac

the press to sir. In judgment on criminals
and harangue the courts ere the cases are
called; without hearltiK tho evidence, as to
what should, If justice lie done, bo the out-
come of them. This Is, to say the least, ex
treinely bad.Uttf , and Is calculated to deny
to every .accuset'l the fair and Impartial trial
coutunplated by the law. Karly liiw-miikeis
'" must have had in mind Just such Inconsliler
ate newspaper writers as this class when
they esiablUhed the precedent of excluding
from Jury duty in a criminal case men w ho
had read'ln tho public prints occounts ot tho
imrtlcular crime charged. Tills rule has
bee toned down considerably, so thata man
may still read the uewpnMrs and make a
competent aud luiblased juror, but not such
biased editorial comment as has strung out
over double-leaded hmico In the columns of
some" of the papera of this city. All this
great apparent sollciiudo tor tho public
VS nfejy and morality i uncalled for. No lla-
1 n grant outrages will be periietrnte.il by tho
courts In tho trials of the accused. They
will be able to kIvo substantial reasons for
its findings, which is more han their con.
U'injornric8Culi do.
For instanco, a disposition has In-en mani
fested to create a sentiment that will influ
ence the trial of Irvine for the killing of
Montgomery, and tlto ninny opot Utilities
available to hlackeu the character of his vic
tim with that end lu view have lieen eagerly
utilized. His mUlolag-s known and sus
pected, have been rehearsed aud uiagulihsl,
which can be justified only upon the plen
that Itlslone through sympathy for Mr.
Irvine. And yet, w hat-does tho press or tho
public know of the IrvUifMontgomerycuseJ
Very llttle, outside of Uie actual tragedy.
There is ail impiesulon curieut that Mrs.
Irvine had confessed criminality with Mont
gomery. tt tho press iiik.1 tho public have
not been slionn that confession, and it U
even hinted that theie is .not much in It
Upon tho contents of that ulleged coiiftssion
must publlo tympathy or cjJticism hinge to
a great extout, und it will not do to le
guessed at.
V
In tliomeanticno it woulil Lie well lor tho
public prints to refrain from zealous advo
cacy of one side or the other ill endeavors to
work up sentiment. Such a course Is usurp
ation of tho prerogatives of the bur. The
laws itxmlro that only men who have de
voted a specilled thno to study of the priii
doles of law. which are the established
ineastuoof justice, und have demonstrated
their fltnetH therefor, shall be euuUted to
harangue jurors aud creaU' sentiment hi a
case at bar. They do not contemplate the
extension of that privilege to every iiresou
slblo scribbler who has access to public at
tention through tho paiers. Murders aud
other tragedies have occurred since the lie
ginning of man and there b nou-o of getting
excited over them. Why not keep cool and
give the courts a nJwwi Tlie- cases hum go
there in any event, and these'loug-winded ef
forts to regulute sibllu seiitliMont merely ux
cite peo4e 'k passions and mako the work of
the courts moro iutricato ami oxpeuslru.
People may wifely await tho action of the
courts with the full assurance that, while
the guilty may oinetliiu.-s ierhaps often
escoe, tho innocent uro not at all likely to
suiter punishment.
J. II.
Whllo lonvlug entirely to tho law and the
courts, however, tho nportloiiment of jus
tice to the erH)trators of crime, it may not
Is) uiulss to rellect upon tho utter foolishness
of the taking of human life, especially with
out the sanction of law, as a punishment to
the victim or a source of vindication or sat
isfaction to the slayer. Take, for instance,
tho cuso above quoted. Who will say that
Irvine has served the ends of JuMlco by kill
lutf Montgomery, guilty though tho latter
limy have lieen of wrecking Irvine's home I
Who can say that C K. Montgomery has re
celvod from the fatality any punishment
other than tho few seconds of agony during
which his robunt vitality clung to the shat
teied caskctl Old he suffer any such punhli-
incut ii! must now bo the dally, hourly, yea,
uninterrupted anil umemlttlng xrtkm of
the man who put out his llfu's llghtl Is it
not a fact that the innocent relatives of both
the deceased and his slayer will suffer, ns
long n life lu them lasts, tlio bitterness of
slmmoaud sorrow which Montgomery is
past feeling! Think of tho vlTect of those
bullet wounds in Montgomery's breast upon
the llfo of Irvine's young and innocent
daughter. As long as she shall live the mem
ory of them will arise to point her to the
shame cast upon her mother's name and tho
blood stains upon her father's hands. Her
pathway Is clouded forever In life. What
must 1st the thoughts of Irvine's relatives!
Are they not moro teirlbly and effectively
punished in their Innocence than is tho vic
tim of tlio tragedy! Who can conceive of
tho lawful punishment Indicted upon tho
dead iii'iu's ngisl mother and soriowlu' sU-
teisi Aud yet tho man now awaiting with
in that awful my him, tho iKMiiteutlnry, for
the developments of tho future, will Ih more
solely punished than all. No man with clean
hands can. Imagine his sufferings now or in
the years to come. No matter what the
courts and public may do, there is that lu
his liriiln and hem t, the memory of human
blood shed by I is hand, which, if the testi
mony of humanity is not false, will embitter
his life to the Inst -onclnus moment. Tho
Impulse implanted in man to take human
life in satisfaction ot wrongs indicted is more
than unfortunate in that it prescribes u rem
eily much more terrible than tho ailment.
When men have schooled themselves in the
rellectlon that It over defeats Its own pur
poses they will ho no longer iutlucnccd by It.
Is it not timo to consider the foolishness of
endeavoring to vindicate one's honor by
bloodshed
It sometimes occurs, no doubt, to tho nt
teudaiits at funerals, aud especially to tho
sincere mourners, that a great many things
occur that are at least ipieur, if not decidedly
out of place. People will crowd and jostle
each other without the least compunction in
their efforts to get a peep at tho faco of the
dead, one whom they may not oven have
known in life. People are presumed to go to
funerals out of resitect for the memory of
the dead, and one who is properly impressed
with that retcct can hardly be sanposed to
bring his risibilities with him, but It is no un
common thing to see ieople chatting, Joking
nid gaily laughing as they follow in tho
solemn march to tho cemetery. A good
UHiiy jieoplo in every considerable funeral
cortege afford evidence to tho observer that
they can enjoy a laiggy ride uuder almost
any ciivumstuiiccs. lint the most remark
Hide feature of every funeral ceremony is
the haste with which the attendants return
therefrom. Hardly a'u tho remains laid in
tlio tomb, and seldom have the clods stopped
rattling upon tlio colli u lid, ere there is u
crumtile to get away, a scene of bustle and
ohfuiou surrounds the halt lluislied
ceremony and in tin incredibly lrlef erlod
Otero is a test of sKed lu the home-coming.
Tlio funeial utid the dead are at once for
gotten. Old Hip Van Winkle's lnful re

obtained by a contrivance similar to the old

a most merltotious production and ceitalnly
ii clever attraction with which to close the

The DimI.I Opera company closed Its Lin
coln engagement at tho Kit like Haturday
evening to only fair business. Tho company
had been out Just three weeks when they left
Lincoln and had had but three weeks'
busluessbo foro coining here. As tint en
gagemellt progiesscd tho people seemed to
becomo better aciualtited with their pints,
and on the closing night a very srtltfactory
piesentatlon of "Chimes of Normandy" was
given. Tho choillsiH were stronger and did
better work and tho principals received Just
and merited applause. While the company
was not equal lu strength, costumes, etc.,
that of many other opeia atttactlous that
have been seen heie, It must also bo borno
in mind that It is not u dollar or u dollar
anil a half production, hut fifty cents was
the higlitst price and for tlmt money the
closing perfwnniieeti weto fully satisfac
tory. "dettysburg" was played by the Leslie
Davis couiHiuy at the Lansing Monday even
ing In honor of Memorial day, mid it Is hard
ly necessary to mention that they drew a
large house composed mostly of old soldiers
and their friends. Tuesday evening '(Jueen's
Kvldeuco" was presented to thu usual sl.eil
audience. This is a sensational conns ly deal
ing with Kiiglish counterfeiters and their ux
citing lives While all tho parts were ad
mirably taken, the piece Is hardly up to the
Million's standard. Wednesday evening tlio
RICK!) AND
"Sea of Ice," a sK.'ctnctilor play of excellent
merit was played to one of the best audi
ences of the engagement. This play is one of
the best presented by the company, and is
most handsomely staged. It met with such
success that It will Ihj rcsatcd at the close
of the engagement this evening. "Tlio Ticket
of Leave Man" was again seen Inrt night by
a large audience aud as this is ouo of the last
nights in which to see the ever popular Liu
dons all lovers of good diuumti'! wuik should
tut u out and give them a hcuity send off.
There will Iki no matinee today, but the
night K'rforumnce will Imj witnessed by tho
