Nearly every little town in the

Through the kindness of Nor
man Mussleman we have been
permitted to read a splendid
article in the New York Times
from the'pen of his relative who
was a member of the Thaw jury.
It seems that the jury paid no
attention to the unwritten law
but divided solely on the ques
tion of insanity. The article is
written in the most finished
style and makes a most reada
The manner in which .Judge
Raper has tried the Miles case
has won for him the most uni
versal praise. With all the
property involved and the great
bitterness of the contest the
judge has shown such emminent
fairness and ability that the
very force of his example has
made the trial very peaceful
compared to what it formerly
has been. The writer of this
asked one of the counsel , who
by the way is one of the best
lawyers in the west , what he
thought of Judge Raper , he re
plied : "I think Raper the best
district judge in Nebraska. "
For once The Tribune feels like
saying we told you so. "
This is a pretty good old
world after all. One Anderson ,
a federal prisoner , escaped from
the Leavenworth penitentiary
nine years ago , and has lived in
Kansas City ever since. He
has been industrious , honest
and sober. He married shortly
after his escape and a little
baby girl was born. Nobody
knew of his having been a felon ,
not even his wife. However ,
one of the fellows who love
money above everything be
trayed him to the authorities
for SUO. Anderson was taken
back to the petv his home
ruined , his wife stricken with
grief and his baby disgraced.
The people of Kansas City arose
in wrath and are showering
petitions upon the president to
pardon him. All over the coun
try like petitions are being pre.
pared. Dave Sowles sent in a
long one from Falls City. Of
course , Anderson is unknown
here , but it doesn't tit in with
Falis'City's idea of the square
dfiil to see a man live a virtu ,
ous , upright lite for nine years
and then be sent back to con.
finement and disgrace.
