prietors of the original packages establish

it is necessary for Kansas to re-enact its
prohibition law after the passage of the
original package law by congress, in order
for it to become of effect as against the
selling of original packages. The chief

case is that the Kemmler execution education, aud t e elements of an houora
demonstrated that killing by electricity is We calling. The Indians themselves aie
a cruel and unusual punishment, and, as ' coming to understand the present policy

of the sentence in the Kemmler case was

MIZNER'S CONDUCT APPROVED.

comes from the City of Guatemala, where,
it appears, the state department was most

By a coincidence, there wore three Der

his former chief; Mr. Garland had come
with a motion to file and seized the oppor

After n preliminary st tement to the ef

to read from his printed brief. His voice
sounded low "but clear at first, and, as he
progressed, he gradually showed more and
more animation, modulating his voice
skillfully and emphasizing his points
by frequent noils of his head.
His language was simple and business-like,
and although the case
was very technical, he succeeded in hold

court. Through all Mr. Cleveland stuck
closely to the printed brief, and he was
not interrupted by remark or question un

when the chief justice called attention to
the fact that it was the custom of the
