ThnoA who ilnnhtad the result in
the case of the anarchists at Chicago
will doubt no more. The miscreants
have had a fair trial, been convicted,
and they will doubtless be executed.
Mercy will not likely step in now to
I relieve those who would have shown
no mercy to innocent victims.
gBack of the trial,there are several c on
siderations not to be lost sight of, and
the expense of the trial (all told, esti
mated at $300,000.) may be sufficiently
attractive, in a way, to deepen with
Chicago tax-payers the impression
that crime is exceedingly expensive.
It is always more or less difficult
to apprehend the natural course cf
events, or the consequence of an act,
but where officials, Bworn to tako
care that the laws be executed, are
derelict in their duty, thinking to
curry favor with lawless men ; profit
ing, as they think, politically or fi
nancially, by a pretense -of enforciug
the law ; in other words, when the
mayor of a city belongs to the "bum
mer" element and is controlled by it,
there is no telling where lawlessness
may end and the enforcement of law
begin. It is not only our opinion but
a general belief that if the mayor ot
Chicago hffd done bis duty or even
measurably attempted it, much if not
all the expense of this trial would
have been saved, as the occasion for
it would not have arisen.
Right principles are the foundation
of all the good there is in civil com
munities, and the comprehension of
these principles, in some good form
or other, is necessary to peace and
prosperity; education is far more
effective and greatly less expensive
in remedying all the evils we have,
than any other method known, and
this is essentially the American idt-a.
The gospel of dynamite will not
have many disciples here.
Tsm Wyck's Caalleaeje.
The statute for whose enforcement
Senator Van Wyck appeals permits
the voters of Nebraska to indicate
their preference tor United States
Senator and makes the canvass and
return to such votes mandatory npon
all election officers. Its aim is to
leave representatives no shadow of
an excuse for overruling tho wishes
of their constituents. Its intent is to
make the popular choice the lesisla
tive choice for Senator. Its object is
to do away forever with the system
which permits corrupt bargaining at
Lincoln to set aside the honest pre
ference of electors freely expressed
at the polls.
Every trickster who has made a
trade of corrupting our legislators,
every monopoly tool whose hand has
been busied in distributing bribes
at legislative sessions, every corpo
ration hireling editor whose efforts
have been directed to pulling the
wool over the eyes of voters and
misrepresenting public sentiment,
naturally shrieks with alarm over a
proposal which will effectually de
stroy their occupation. It is "non
sensical," "utterly impotent," "worth
less," and "under no circumstances
would the railroad republican can
didates for senator consent to have
their name used in connection with
so ludicrous a proceeding."
The public will look at the matter
differently. They will applaud the
the manliness of a candidate who
prefers to leave to the people the de
cision of his claims to the office
rather than to follow the devious
paths of the legislative still hunt.
They will approve the moral bravery
which incites the champion to throw
down his gauntlet in the political
arena and challenge bis competitors
to the gage of battle in the full nun
light of publicity. Omaha Bee.

A telegram from Berlin, Aug. 22
announced that Prince Alexander of

He was informed that no appeal had

court of the state of Chihuahua in a

before, that he did not recognize the
jurisdiction of any Chihuahua court,
and that he left his case entirely in
the hands of the American govern
ment. He was thereupon taken
back to prison.
A fiendsh attempt was made to
kill J. F. Tufts, of Atchison, Kan.,
who has recently been assisting the
attorney general in prosecuting the
violatrs of the prohibitory law, by
exploding a can of powder at his
residence, endangering the lives of
his family. It appears that the per
sons handling the infernal machine
attempted to place it inside the
bouse, but becoming frightened
probably, they set it on the back
porch, lighted the fuse and fled.
There were two windows and a door
opening on the porch, and the force of
the explosion blew in the door and
windows, shattered the floor, and
lifted a portion of the roof. Six
lives were placed in jeopardy.

turned a verdict of guilty of murder
against August Spies, Michael
Schawb, Samuel Fielden, Albert P.
Parsons, Adolph Gischer, George

murder as charged in the indictment
and affixed the penalty of death.
"We find Oscar W. Neebe guilty of
murder in the manner and form as
charged in the indictment and affix
the penalty at imprisonment in the
penitentiary at fifteen years." The
verdict appears to give general sat
isfaction to the public as beiug in

just before his train reached North

prostration, produced by the extreme

has been abandoned, and he will re
turn home at once. He changed his
course at Denver and went down the

Mr. Editor: I notice in your

Barrow. It appears that she is
very anxious tht the people of
Columbus should be informed of
the state of affairs existing in Utah.
But the informatien she' gives us is
only from her standpoint and one
would naturally suppose we were
ignorant of tho state of society ex-1
lsung mere, one complains bitterly
of the U. 8. oakials, calls them des
pots, and charges them with having
either shanM ner decency about
them. This is frequently the cry of
thee who have-been accustomed to
violate the law of the laud wherever
it suited their purpose, until they are
brought before the proper tribunal
and justice begins to be meted out
to them. Then they begiu to cry
tyranny and oppression, when the
truth Is they are oaly being brought
to an account for their evil deeds.
What the people of that territory
want to Ienrn is that the the U. 6.,
like other nations, is governed by
laws, aad those laws are .universal
throughout, the land.
Utah being the only exception
where the government has allowed
the people to do pretty much as they
please for the last twenty-five or
thirty years, and they have trampled
all law under their feet, except what
their leaders saw fit to interpret as
I do not believe there is a govern
ment under the sun, besdes the
United States, that would allow her
subjects to live in open rebellion
against their laws without bringing
them to justice. The baud of mercy
has been extended unto them for
years, but they have only taken ad
vantage of it. And now, when just
ice steps in and demands her right,
the transgressors begin to flee, aud
we bear the howl ot "tyranny and
despotism," and the officials are
charged with being btranger to
shame and decency.
Let them examine care In My their
own record while they hcM tho
power in their own Imndn and then
ask themselves the question where
their shame and decency was before

aud offences. As to tlespotism.the haud
of their leaders ha been laid heavi

their proverty has been destroyed or
