Their Talk Will Not Go.
The attempt of 'some people to
smooth over the disgusting crime of
Alonzo Moore by talkiDg about his
marrying his victim, will not find any
willing ears about the couit house.
The little girl is but a child, and in
appearance is not a day over twelve
years of age. To marry her to this
burly brute in order to save him from
a merited term in the penitentiary is
revolting to every lover of fairness
and common decency. The girl says
she is anxious to go home end live
creditably with her parents,
thus showing the untruthfulness
of Moore's sympathizers, who
claimed she had been mistreated
by her father. The efforts of
some people to thwart justice will
not bc allowed to have any weight
with tffe prosecution or with the court
officer? and Mr. Moore may rest as
sured (hat his opportunity for a so
journ in the stato penitentiary remain

A jealous lover, a eaie-free sweet

with a lively rig and a bicycle, m.de
up the actors and properties in a lit
tle drama one night last week that
camo dangerously near turning into a
blood curdling tragedy, with guns and
bullets and blood and all that sort of

sweetheart o i the occasion of a dance

preparation the eouplo got together

steeds were speeding toward the dance
when silently and swiftly there ap
proached them the jealous lover, as
