Tht ! Mclutco murder trial has been
Iho case of interest in the district court ,
and as predicted by the HIE. : is being
closely contested , All of the first day's
proceedings and Up to 10 o'clock yester
day the prosecution had the floor , six
witnesses nnd the dying statement of the
child being the evidence placed before
the jury on direct examination. The
principal witnesses wcro the mother and
nisicr of the dead child unit two physi
cians1. ilnniPS Mclntec , the prisoner nt
the bar , is n man evidently over sixty
years of age , a farmer living in the north
part of Lancaster county and n native of
Ireland. The evidence for the state ad
duced the factsthattho preliminary hear
ing last Hummer brought out , that the
child died from wounds inflicted by her
father. Some time before the abuse oc
curred Molnlcc and his wife separated ,
liis wife coming to Lincoln nnd support
ing herself In town , Mclnlce holding lethe
the farm and keeping the child , who
afterwards died. The testimony sots
out that in .Inly , 1333 , McTnteo
kicked his daughter , llcrlhn Mclutco ,
on the hip , inflicting injuries- from which
the child died. After the injuries had
been inflicted the mother nought antl ob
tained possession of tlio child , aconlirmed
invalid , who for mouths suffered , falling
nil the lime in health until the past sum
mer , when she died. The dying declara
tions > if the child recite n pitiful tale of
mistreatment nnd suffering , which evi
dently nr < i entitled lo'n great deal of
weight , They were taken by the state a
phort time , but a few days before tlio
death of the child anil after the death
Home two weeks to ascertain the cause of
tlio child's deatli the preliminary hearing
then in progress was adjourned over long
enough for the coroner to oxlmmo the
remains anil hold a post mortem. At
this post mortem the effort , was made by
Mclnteu's attorneys to prove by physi
cians that deatli occurred from hereditary
diseases , but the testimony of the physi
cians was that death occurred from
injuries inflicted. The defense
in the present trial seems to
be to establish this fact of disease and
that Mclntco's mistreatment is false.
The witnesses as a rule are dull if not
really ignorant , and tlio attorney for the
dnfcnso exercised a good deal of limn in
attempting to lie up and confuse tlio
testimony of Mrs. Melnteo ami her
daughter , but their story in the main ro
inained unshaken. While tlio prosccu <
tion had the case some of the prisoner's
friends createtl disturbance by mutterings -
ings against the testimony ami character-
i/ing the testimony of some of the wit
nesses as d d lies. When this continued
in the hearing of District Attorney
Strode , he arose and dressed down the
disturbers in a vigorous manner , promis
ing if tliu court did not stop them to mil
a warrant in the hands of the sheriff and
give them enough of it. If tlio prisoner' *
witnesses had any muttering * * to make
after that they did it beneath ll.clr breath
This episode was duplicated yesterdaj
forenoon in a milder form whim Mr.
Strode brought a little Iciao language
to bear upon Mr. Sawyer , the
defendant's attorney for attempting to
'iterjuet a speech to the jury after an ob
etiou had been sustained.
Al noon yesterday three out of the
twenty-one witnesses subpoenaed for the
defense had been hoard anil it looked
very probubltf that thu case would con
tinue over until to day before a verdict
is reached. The dofi'iiso is reinforced bj
these witnesses , who seem determined tr
do what they can to assist Mclutco , antf
serious family dilliciiltics between Me
Jnteii and his wifn seem to be hidden
llnoughout the progress of the trial.

months before the expiration of his sen

was about to strike the guard with it ,
when the latter shot him dead.
His wife , meantime , by laundry work
had eked out a miserable existence for
herself ami family of little children ,
among whom was the little girl now be

ho was sent to the same state prison
where her father had been killed. Fuel

She requested that a copy of her bap

could not be perfouued unless the record
was produced. Mr. Llealy having left

These corporation * manipulate our

from KivinK utterance to n single honest
sentiment not in strict conformity with
thn dictates of railroad mngnatua and

Every ollichil position wlilch railroad *

subject of otxtn , barefaced and mtscrunu-
IOIIH barter and sale , wliilo our political
atmosphere is corrupted to that loathsome.
condition that would disgrace the mot > t
unclean thing.
Not feathllcd with that unscrupulous
legislation which look one-half of the
public domain of the west from the roach
of honest toil nud .squalid poverty and
placed it snuggly In the pockets of rnil-
roa.j rings ; not content with tlio untold
millions of dollars showered upon them
as subsidies by tin ; debused nnd iniqui
tous politicians nboyo referred lo ; over
looking the millions wrung from coun

oppressive demands ; forgetting Iho tens

been linai'clally ruined by the gross and
outrageous discriminations of railroads
against persons uml localities ; unmind
ful of the burdens they have Imposed
on honest toil to pay the scandalous
rates of freight on everything
winch labor produces or consumes : ig
noring the fact these roads ( which were
built almost wholly by government aid )
have in many instances noon bonded for
live times their actual cost , they now col
lect of western ohiupors the outr.iccous
rates to pay the interest on these exag
gerated and inflated values.
Their unscrupulous impudence in di
verting our freights to suit tlio conveni
ence. of pools , is only equaled by their
bra/uu lawlessness in breaking open
packages of goods consigned to tlicm for

Shippers are compelled to haul their
rreight for miles by team alongside of
railioads in Colorado to avoid tlio bur
densome rates imposed.
Every politician who claims to control
a vote is the pampered pet and favorite
of our oppressors. Their pockets are
filled with railroad passes without money
and without price , save ns a reward for
their fidelity to a constant and coutin
nous betraviil of the people.
Uitli tlio business men and shippers
who pay the running expenses of these
roads it' is quite a dilierent thing. The
few favors which are reluctantly extended
to them are doled out through such sur
roundings of mock solemnity , pretended
privacy and avowed dishonesty , as to
plnco the receiver more in the light of n
criminal than that of a paying patton.
There is method in all this , but the fact
exists that wo pay for hauling nine-tenths
of the deatl beats in tlio land. All this is
to maintain the honor of a pool , which is
in every sense a combination against in
dustry , u conspiracy to extort high and
unjust rates from tlio people and a trans
parent imposition upon the rights of
every shipper in the west.
Every laborer , every manufacturer ,
every business in our midst is writhing
under these oppressive burdens. Every
toiler must give up ono or two extra
hours of labor each day to satisfy the in-
Miliato greed of railroad bondholders ,
Many ofour western railroad men are
keenly alive to the situation. They tin
derstaml tlio gross injustices wo are tel
crating. Hut their hands are tied by tlio
astute liguroheails of the cast , who know
nothing of this country , care nothing for
our welfare , have no conception of our
wants , and whoso sole ambition is to bo
the relative of some defunct millionaire
and occasionally ride through this conn
try in a palace car , and drink wine at the
expense of the men the ? arc driving to
Manufactories in Colorado , whore fuel
is bo plentful , nro driven out of existence
by the high rates on coal. Thousands of
Colorado mines are idle to-day because
of the excessive rates on ore. Our pow
der factory , our match factories , ourhoan
works , have long since felt the withering
blight of these oppresaivo discrimina
tions ,
Millions of dollars which ought to re
ward labor , beautify Colorado homes ,
build up mannfatories anil furnish em
ployment for our thousands of idle me
chanics , are squeezed , dollar by dollar ,
from the masses and stull'ed into the coffers
fors of foreign bondholders. Colorado
pays i3,000.0i ( ) freight on ores every year
in excess of fair and just rates. Denver
pays s-jJOO.OOO in e.xeess or. coal nlono anc
millions more on grain , lumber and mer
cluimliso ,
The people of the west have quietly
bubmittcd to this disgraceful imposition
long enough. They have placed tlieii
faith in tlio political demagogues of al
parties for years , without any good nt
suits. Thinking men : ire united on this
question. The gross injustice they have
fiultcrcd calls for open and firm revolt
from every man having the least claim to
manhood or independence All hope for
nul from political panics is vain. The
people must grapple with this question in
that feailess manner which the subjeo
requires , and it is high time the work
began. Respectfully , / . Siuu : ,

ran between London nnd Now York and
between Liverpool and that pore the
rooms AS the little cabins ranged on
either side of the saloon were termed
were below the sea level. Tlio.y were In
commodious , dark and ill ventilated ; in
fact , the only light they enjoyed was thai
furnished by small pieces of ground glass
nsertcd In the deck overhead nhd from
ho. fanlights in the jdpors opening to the
saloon , and th's was so poor that the
occupants of the state-rooms could not
oven dress themselves without nianlng
use of a lamp. The solo ventilation ot
hem was that alVorded by the removal of
ttio saloon skylights , which , of course ,
could only bo done In line weather , The
consequence was that the closeness of
the atmosphere in the state-room was at
nil times most unpleasant , while Iho
smell of the bilge-wafer was so offensive
as to create nausea independent of that
arising from the motion ot thovcssel. Tn
tlio winter , on the other hand , the cold

from it soarcciy : a do itself appreciably

Ilicro was the same absence of urovision

water required for drinklng _ and cooking
purposes was carried in casks , and , when
the ship had a full cargo , many of these
were placed on deck , with the result that
their contents wcro sometimes im

the water was most unpalatable , it being
muddy and lilled with various impurities
from the old worm-eaten barrels in
which It was bnpt. Not only was the
water bad , but the supply occasionally
proved inadequate , mid when the voyage
was an unusually long ono the nccessit5'
would arise of nlacing tlio passengers

The Debating Powers or Gladstone
nnd Churchill.
I was much interested in the appear
ance of Mr. Gladstone as ho arose to
speak , .says Hon. Sotli Low , in the Hrook-
lyn iMaga/.ino for November. A rather
small , worn man. he seemed from the
visitors' gallery , who c thin , gray hair
betokened age , but whose active move
ment as lie rose to his fuel indicated
abundant vigor. With a perfectly quiet
manner , but with now and then a grace
ful gesture , his words came out in
smoothly flowing sentences , directly to
the point. At times with n touch of irony ,
and oftc i with a .quiet humor which
never failed of its mark , ho showed him
self tlio master of parliamentary fence
which all men know him to be. When
ho bat down it was evident tlieio was
nothing left of the notion. Later on in
the spring , as the fight waxed hauler
and heavier against him , ho displayed
with all the lire of youth those wonderful
qualities which have made him , oven to
his contemporaries , a marvel. Men BUY
he never lights better than when the bat
tle is desperate. \ \ ith a courage born of
the most complete conviction , that
slonpcd at no risk nnd no labor , with an
alertness that took in the whole Hold ,
with an eloquence that da/wled even his
enemies , like a very Ca'ur do Lion , lie
fought almost single-handed the unequal
light. At a distance looking at him it
would seem wholly beyond his physical
powers. Close at hand his face is
marked , indeed , with the lines and wrin
kles of inanv campaigns , and you see
before yon still an old man , but you pee
also what at n distance you mi s , that
the lines are the lines of endurance and
hardy strength more than of weakness
and old ago. Lord Randolph Churchill ,
on the oilier hand , is a young man , small
and nervous-mannered , but ho has about
him the look of a good tighter. His re
markable address to tlio electors of
1'addington in the last election repre
sents only one side of him. and that not
an admirable one surelv.though it is fair ,
ncrhnps , to give the" explanation of it
which is current with some of his friends.
These claim that , fearing the conserva
tives , as a party , would be lost behind
their allies , the followers of Lord Hurt-
ington and Mr. Chamberlain , ho set out
to iind a ! mo of attack in which these
liberals could not follow him. He found
it in abuse of Mr. Gladstone. On this
occasion , m the house , his bearing , con
trary to what his reputation would have
led me to expect , was dignified , and ho
appeared to good advantage. Appar
ently ns much at homo as Mr. Gladstone ,
ho spoke calmly , clearly , and well. lie
showed himself well read in parliamen
tary history , and proved himself ready in
reply when interrupted , The impression
I gained at that time of his ability has not
been shaken. Jn this respect I think
there is no ono'on the conservative side
of the house to bo compared to him , and
piobably they have been wise in making
him their leader in the now house of

Affliction to the Sick.
London Lancet : Nothing is more inox *
plicable than the tenacity with which
oven sensible persons hold to the tradi
tions of any system with which they have
been associated by education and habit.
A very striking example of this is the
ringing of church bells when tlioso
places of public worship stand in the
very midst of populous districts , and
when tlioso who frequent them arc per
fectly well aware of the houis of service ,
nnd nro not in the least degree depend
ent on the sound of the bells for the op
portunity of attendance , In the old
days , when parisloncrs lived a consider
able distance from their church , when
Jiitrre n'era fay ; clocKa in private houses ,
and when tlio times of service were nn *
certain , there wcro valid reasons why
bells should bo rung to call togethnr the
worshippers , but not one of there reasons
at present exists , and the ringing of
church bells in rtities and towns Is a need
less ami vexatious ceremony. To the
sound in health it may bo an annoyance ;
wliilo to the sick it Is a very grave afllic-
lion , causing in many instances serious
injury , and wo cannot hesitate to say in
not a few cases actually aggravating
disease nnd shortening life. The practice
should undoubtedly bo abandoned , or if
prejudice bo too strong for voluntary ac
tion it ought to bo interdicted. It is in
tolerable that for thn sake of a mere sen
timent , which has no shadow of solem
nity about it , which has nothing to do
with icligion or belief , and which ( out-
.side n utilitarian purpose , which has no
place in tlie e days ) is simply u super
stition of the most stnpitl kind , annoy
ance and injury should bo perpetrated.
A ease of flagrant violation of tlio old- !
nary rules of courtesy that has pist
occurred in Liverpool , placing the
authorities ot one church in light wholly
nt variance with the spirit of common
humanity , lias raised tins question in u
manner which wo trust will give it u
practical shape. Wo would be the very
last to ollend the consciences of those
who are striving ( o uphold the religion of
the country , and uo would not pen ono
word to wound the feelings of any sin
cere worshipper ; but this matter of
church-bell ringing lias not the most re
mote connection with icligion or worship ,
anil we protest against a practice which
it ) an , and too frequently entails
consequences altogether too terribly dis
astrous to be contemplated without in
dignation. Medical practitioners will do
well to refuse certificates of the cause of
death in cases in which they have reason
to believe that the fatal issue lias been
hastened by the disturbance caused by
this practice , and leave it to coroners'
juries to give expression to the feeling
which the giievanco very justly creates.
