ONE hundred million dollars an

beginning next July. According ti
Mr. Buntly , the predecessor of tin
present commissioner of pensions
"not less than ton per cent , of tin

BO that if the hundred million dolliin
now demanded are voted ono-tentl

The conviction of the assassin Oui
tc.iu will send a fooling of relit
throughout the country. It is
strong commentary on the distrust o
justice by jury that there should ovc
limo been any doubt of the result c
the trial of the cowardly murdered < ;
President Oarflold. The well-know
sning of a distinintishud picador thn
not even the foreknowledge of th
Creator's could reach the action of
petit jury , very well expresses thn
distrust. To this was added a trii
unusually lengthy nnd tedious , bur
donrd with technical testimony air
disgraced by the most shameful an
grotesque interruptions on the pnrt c ;
the prisoner and his counsel. The en
lire country has every reason to congratulate
gratulato itself that justice did tui
miscarry and that through the vci
diet of guilty the murderer of the lat
President Gnrfielel will meet with th
just retribution of an appalling crime :
The great trial will long romaii
one of the "distinguished CRSOS" o
American criminal annals. It will b
particularly important from the lin
of defense adopted by the counsel fa
the prisoner , the great nmoun
of export testimony upon meiitr
disease and the decisions of the judg
an to what constitutes moral irrcspon
aibilily. From out of the conflictin
positions of the counsel , the contrnelic
tory opinions of the experts and th
mass of general testimony conn
clearly the definition of murderou
insanity as given by the court , viz ,
"Such disturbance of the mental pov
ers as rendered the possessor incapr
bio of distinguishing between rijjli
and wrong when committing hw ol
funso. " This definition is not all no1
in the legal reports , lint its aflirmn
tion in the Ouiteau cnso will do muc
to render it more operative in subsc
queiil trials when the well worn pie
of emotional insanity is urged as i >
oxcusu for colel blooded murder.
Another important oflico has bee
served by the trial just brought to
close , The interminable duplicatio
of export testimony , and the dullest
repetitions of the same subject matte
by witnesses is likely to call attontio
to the necessity of a reform in th
method of securing and. introducin
in our courts the testimony of eu
perls. In Franco the court appoint
a comniiniiem for the purpose of ternl
ing the mental responsibility of th
accused , and they alone testify as t
the result of their inquiry. It i
becoming a serious question whellie
the ends of juitico would not be but
tcr subserved by some such method i
our own courts , and whether the mill
implication of expert testimony , uhus
only object seems to be to confuse th
minds of judge and jury , is not
growing evil in our legaluystom nine
calls for some immediate remedy.
lint with all thu failings of the tri :
of Guitoau , with its horrible coined

January 2 i. I arrived in Crete yesterday
torday and found it to bo u brigh
town of 2,300 people , situated on am
extending across the Mil ley fiom tin
east bank of the 13ig Ulue liver to thi
dixido , briniin < r the beat lusidonci
portion of the city on a gradual , ye
commanding oluvntion , which , nt tin
distance uf about half n mile from tin
river , is about a hundred foot abovi
its level.
On arriving in town and gutting i
good supper at the Cosmopolitan ho

Mr. Manville , with whom and hi
family I was acquainted in "tho day ;
e > f auld hint : syno. " I found that hi
lived out of town about a mile , and '
started to walk the distance. I
pre > \ud a longer walk than I ox
pcctod , but ut la&t I arrived ane
met with atry che'orful wolcomi
from the tirnt old friend I have soui
in this nection of thu status. Ho is
staunch republican , a man of wide in
telligunco and information , and up
predates the position of TIIK lir.H. 01

here. It started in 187" , with a fuv

graduated five classes. It U foundei
on Christian principles , and hus a per

besides the suction of land on the wua

town improves.
The eighty ucies of the original ( J4 (

features of tbo institution. Thu lies

attracted to its vicinity ninny highlj
refined families , who give to tbo so
cinty of Crete a grade of intelligence
surpassed by that of no town in tlie
west , and equalled by that of fow.
Crete boasts a good deal , and witl
good reason , of her mills , ono ol

of 250 barrels of flour per day , and
