A thrill of genuine Borrow swept out from
(ho national capital , Tuesday morning niul
vibrated through every city, vlltsgo and
farm within tho confines of this untlon, at
the announcement that Mm. Harrison, the
queenly consort of tlio president, hnd closed
her eyes to the triumphs nnd cares nf earth
cf receive the crown eternal. Death was tin o
to plumonury troubles Inherited, it In claim
ed, from the family of her mother. Sho hiul
been idling therowlth only since April, when
sho was compelled to excuse herself at one of
her popular receptions, since which time sho
has Iteen seen by but few of her friends, as
her malady hud grown steadily more pro
nounced in splto of the most pntlent and
tender care, frequent changes of cllmato and
tho boat skill of the physician. Mm. Harri
son was born at Oxford. O., October 1st,
IK! J. Her maiden namo was Carrio Bcott,
and she was tlio daughter of a Presbyterian
minister who whs also president of it female
college. Hho married Benjamin Harrison
October i.0lh,18Kl.n It was a happy nihr-
riage, crowned by n lovo that laughed at
poverty and fuced tho future with conlldence.
It is said that sho ami her husband began
their niarrltxj life possessed of lex than
(1,000, and that she was for years her own
housekeeper, doing her own woi k and doing
It well, oven after her two children' were'
born. -From that time on until her death
in spito of every sun oundlng thut comes with
fiiuio and wealth Mm. Harrison has remain
od a notablo example of iho most admirable
qualities of woiunnhood, a true and loving
wife, a kind ami devoted mother and u Christ
ian woinanwhose inunysupeilor graces were
as well known and generally recognized be
- f oro as after her demtso.
Sho has been n popular hostess ntthowhito
house and even tho most avowed political
enemies of tho president have over praised in
terms of evident sincerity tho unvarying
queeullnessof Mrs. Harrison. This nation Is
not unmindful of it groat loss In the removal
of this revel end lady from tho whlUi house
and expressions of genuine sorrow havo pour
' ,eil iu upon tho striken president from every
state anil city In tho union, especially touch
ing and impassive being tho expressions
fioin executive state olllcer. Aiuericau
royalty tho souverelgu citizen will slmru
with President Hurrisou tho vorrow of his
great atlllction In the Ims of a helpmate who
for nearly forty years hud lovingly shared
his rise from poveity and obscurity to fame,
wealth and power. Tho funeral occurred
Thursday, and was conducted as quietly and
uncerimoniously, according to tho president's
wisher, as if deceased bud tieeu merely a mem
ber of a private family. Theremalnsdld not
even Ho in state. A double service was held,
however, one In the white house and one in
the First I'rosbytei luu church in Indian
apolls, her home church, whither showus re
moved for interment.
The great Irvine trial is ended, and In the
way that brings tho greatest joy to tho great
est number of eople. The verdict of aa
quital bod boen prayed for nnd anticiated
by hundreds, but chiefly by the ladles of the
city, who are ever rebellious against the
stern demands of the law In criminal cases.
The court room was daily thronged with
ladies from the lest circles of society, und
though It was not tho most refining plait) in
the world, hundreds of young girls were
attracted thither. Many of the ladies neg
ItcUd no opportunity of letting tho jurors,
who were not blind, discover where their
sympathies were, by means of divers and
. sundry nods and shaking of heads, tears and
ill-concealed anger or frowns. Of couise
their sympathy was with the dofeudunt. It
always Is. It wus so In the Sheedy trial, and
it was even fo in tho Ed Nell tilal In Omaha,
where as brutal a murder was involved as
was ever committed by human Mng, And
Ed Nell hail untl(X),000or more behind him.
He was simply dusliing, Immlsoino Kd Nell,
a brutal murderer, hut there was no tima
duiing hlstiial when tho ladies present, ami
they were numerous and aristocratic, wore
r not iu full sy in phthy with his course. The
;jury iii'iuo irviue case was not rnr dauuiu
' the ladles, and unless one bo so uncharitable
to presumo that they violated tho oath they
took to try the cast) on tho law audtheevi
deuce, they reached the conclusion that
Irviue was iupuiie. Of course there Is no
way of determining upon just what ground
(hey reached their verdict, but llw.v ennui
lawfully reached it only Uhihhici c i.n-iiirlnii,
and that would Ik) tlui defeiiilinit'n ii Minlt

Mania trnusltoria will doubtless becoiuo
henceforth u populur fad In medical juris
i prudence. Poor old Htitchlnsou had to got
out of court, braudeil as n common, ordinary,
every day lunatic, but he is probably iho last
of the ppecies in local criminal tribunals.
The trunsltory theoiy is so much more con
Aeulent, effective nnd desirable, its victim
need only to bo crazy long enough to ac
complish his puiosoiiud there need be no
necessity of his guln to tho luuutlo asylum
to ttvCHim resioii8lbility for the consequences
of his fury. Meantime liisaui y in either of

sive luxury in pjlut of niouoy, us well us iu
re.ioct to liuiunii life. The Ii vino ti fill has
piobtttily cost the county Uf000 or Jl,(i00.
And it does seem as if thrru is no uio of cum
butting ueforo a jury tho theory of a defen
dant's insanity. We can buvo inoue) by
fiaukly and rttudllv uckuowledglng it to be

trials we have U-en having. Or else wo
might acquit that thero are Hrsoual or

alogue them and savooxpuo of tiials.
Tho Irvine trial tins not been so much an
orderly proceeding In a UMiiple of justice as
a drama acted ii)on the boanls of a theatre
after numerous lehoarnil. It was a great
passion play, lusting two weeks. If the
accessories of tho stage, tho glare of the
footlights and line sconlu ehTcts were absent,
the play was not wnutiug In dramatic action.
Tho rnngo and compass of tho theme was ns
broad as tho passions of the human soul.
Tho furious waves of feeling, sentiment nnd
sympathy were now tossed nloft to tho heav
ens, and again disclosed the profoundest
depths. There was tragedy to begin with,
comedy iu the middle nnd n rattling farcu at
tho end. Tho halo of lis I light at night
nnd the black cloud by d.iy about tho central
llgure, and tho collision between them wheu,
In n fit of unconscious or "transitory"
frenzy, Montgomery was killed, were worthy
tho genius . of n Poo, or iho author of tho
"Ancient Mariner." There was n touch of
tho fantastic In tho dream of the hero,
wherein Marguerite and Mephlstopheles
chasrd each other across tho disordered vis
ion, while tho reference to Oram! Pre, where
the scene of longfellow's "Evangeline" was
laid, wus decide lly roiuiutlu and worthy tho
poetic genius of foreign counsel.
This great drama was only Intended to lie
played to a select number, consisting of
twelve (lersons, who weio to piss upon the
merits of tho pet forumuco, but an Impatient
public and an inqortunut populucu throng
ed the seats ami aisles, and overflowed tin
sacicd precincts of tho judgment seat Itself.
Thero they sat, smiled and frowned, and
cried In sympathy w'th tho hero of the virtu
ous act so that justice might bo done.
Llttlfc Flossie's nnoxpsitol advent into the
court room, straight to tho nrms of her
fathor; her druuiutla presentation to tho
jury just a trlllo over-acted .vid tho appeil
mndo Iu her behalf by eloquent counsel; tho
cheering and uppluliso that followed n
telling point in the speeches of advocates;
the tears of the men, the sobs of the women
nnd the manifestations of sympathy shower
ed upon the accused ut the end of each day's
trial; the thunderous applause with whMi
the verdict wus greeted, followed by em
braces and kisses, bestowed upon the accused
by th lair and virtuous, all lead to the con
clusion that the curtain was ruiig down on a
great drama, and not upon tho closing scene
of a proceeding Iu a court of Justice, whore
court, counsel and jury were engaged iu tlio
solemn duty of vindicating the law, The
ovation extended Irvine at the closti of the
trlul and the subsequent reception were
worthy tributes to his herolsu iu shooting
down a man agalnss whom ho said on oath
he had no Ill-will, with nit giving him a
chance to tell his Btory or defoud himself.
Hyron speaks of tile ecrtacy of tho first
kiss of lovo, but that is not comparable to
the unutterable delight experienced by the
blushing maidens and the unblushln;
matrons who put up their llpi forakhu
from tho erson who had shot his man.
What a glow of conscious pride mantled the
breasts of these women 'as they contemplat
ed their own moral exaltation and exhibition
of vlrtuel They ware so. surprised to llud
such novel sentiment' anil noble sympathy
leaping to tho trout of being, demanding
display and parade, that they besome enam
ored of their own selves and actually suffer
ed from excessive dlstentian by reason of
having gorged themselves with an overdose
nf molality and virtue. As the wild African
hangs by some artMo of his apparel and
worships it as a deity, so the people elevated
themselves to a high moral pedestal and
then prostrated thomselvos before it In self
laudation and worship, then wont from
the court room straight to their homes, put
ting themselves on the bond, eager and cove
tous of praise for the hlh moral sentiment
und action they had just exhibited.
The Lincoln Light Infantry has apparently
reorganized with tho design of staying this
time. This oniuiNiuy was organized almost u
year ago, but a luck of interest iu the work
was encountered early nnd It fell by the way

to seo that none secure admission who havo

If there were a fow more men iu Lincoln

they furnUli employment. The man must

Without Intended disparagement of some
nf the numerous organizations of that nature
now in the city, the Klckoe can well growl
at the fact that there Is not a brass baud In
Lincoln that Is In any way n credit to n city
of (10,000. Noliody can tell just why, but It
Is n lamentable fact. And tho bands Hint nro
hern seem to get siorer each year, Instead of
better. With nil the pleasure resorts, state
meetings, celebrations and other demands for
such nnrirgnulrntlou, one would think that
Lincoln ought certainly to havo a creditable
baud, at least as good ns cart be supported at
York, Nebraska City or Archer, And yet
the brass bands from those pirns can play
all around anything In Lincoln. This situa
tion Is not due to uny luck of excellent per
formers hero. The woods nro full of them.
There nro brass bands hero "till you can't
lest," and the words nro not designed to Is)
Interpreted figuratively either. They are so
numerous, so changeable nnd so devoid of
merit that ono cannot distinguish ono from
the'other. This is mostly duo to lack of
liberality on tho part of tho public , though
perhaps partly due to need of a capable busi
ness nnd ' professional manager. People In
Lincoln nr to firmly grounded In the habit
of hiring bauds of indifferent merit that a
first-clans bund would ordinarily Iks deemed
an expensive luxury. Even ut tho two
parks, both of which realized handsome
dividends, Improvlshed bunds were engaged
the last season, bnuds wlilch the management
of Hther ought to have hesitated before plac
ing In the publlo service. The tlmu Is ilpo
for souii enterpilsl ng iiiuuiiger to organize n
creditable band In Lincoln, one of wlilch the
people need not bo ashamed cither at homo
or abroad, Lincoln ix-oplo will see to It tliat

Yet no one has heurd any of the sapient city

to be culled upon every now uud then to put
