ovitakra the negro who ravishes and
mnrdera a rore, lovely white girl, ought
to teach the colored people that the white i
fcave sworn in their hearta that the fiend
thl die. In regard to this crime there i
an unwritten law which is as iaexorablr
aa fate. The rape of white women by
negro brutes have become alarmingly Ire
qnent. It is the one orima which comes
home to every fi veldts and so fires th
hearts of fathers end brothers with the
consuming passion of revenge that law
abiding rjs ns forget their duty and be
come the leaders of the lynching mob of
law-breakers. To talk to each men on
snch occasions about obedience t law
only inflames their mad passions for
the law's delay, its many ave-
ones lor acquittal, and the possi
bility of the criminal's escape increases
the determination to avenge the outrage
The fate of the negro Alex. Eeid in Clarke
county, Alabama, an account of which
was published in yesterday's Aptial, was
a horrible execution of the unwritten law
in Buch c ea. The crime was the most
atrocious of aiodern times. The monster
confessed the diabolism. But Christian civ
ilization will be appalled at the manner
of his deat a. It was bad enough in iho
lynchers to take the law in their own
hands and to become a mob W law
breakers, but the burning t! the negro,
so' j acting him to the tartars of a slo
death, was a crime as horrible as thai
wmca trie negro committed. The report
of the barning says: "The crowd piled
light wood aronnd the negro and set fire to
i Although he appealed for mercy, after
tie had roasted a while the fire was scat
tered, and he was attowed to fetl the full
agony of burning. Then a new fire wat
built, and this in turn, after barning
some time, whs taken away. This pro
cess was repeated three times. Reed made
m outcry, bat his contortions show
ttut he suffered terribly. When it was
faaiod that he was dead the light wood was
piled quickly aronnd and the corpse wae
reduced to a-hes." Awful! Horrible! The
whole civilized world will stand aghast
rWicg the details of each barbarity,
This was nothing but brutes barning
brute. No good was accomplithed by snb
jscting the monster to a slow death of tor
ture. The world is unable to see any
lesson of value .to be learned from Uiia
shocking tragedy. So many criminals go
ifuwhipt of justice that lynching has be
- oxa the rule in the enormous crime of
rape. Bat the people will revolt end call
a halt Bince the victim is to be sabjectt
ti a slow death by fire and fagot. Tb
r justing and torturing f Keid was nothing
but wanton cruelty. The monster deserved
death, but his sufferings benefited
naither the dead victim nor the living
avenger, lbe negro who rapes and mur-
dara wbAta women ii doomed to certain
death by the unwritten law. Bat when a
immunity becomes outlaws they should
not also become baibarians who delight in
torturing their victims. Xo additional ter
ror and awe is given to tha negroes by the
torture of the guilty brutes who confess
their crimes. If the mob is d tsrminod to
free the world all puch monsters their
daatbs shoo' J be epnedy and painless.
THE SItXM iS TKE4TY.
"What will Cjruress do with the Mexi
c .n trealy ? is a question that is beginning
to be asked. That the extension of the
railroads has rendered necessary some
change in our commercial relations with
that nation every one can see. We have
product and luioufacturea Mexico won! J
readily receive, aud Mexico has produce
ana raw materibl which our supenor
faculties wuald c invert into sources of
w a til. V here uiiua.l interests are con
. earned there should b little difficulty in
arrnnglng for an iuteicbange of products.
H i-, uuluckily, there is an enormous d-fR-ca'ty
ir. the woy. We cannot nnobrtruct-
o i y take what Mexici has to offer and re
turn to her what we have that
she requires, as the nature of
the case and good sense wou'.d
dictate, becaasa both countries have
protectionist lawn, that is to ray
that nature's provisions are set as.de and
man s wisdom undertakes to amend
nature's blunders. The geneml interests
of the country are neglected that the in
terests of monopolist, hilders of pri-
ilegB, and subsisters oa the public taxt-s

co's incapacity and general etupidity in
basinesa matters, but in this affair of the
treaty Mexico hu bejn more business
like and rational than tbe United States,
and knew its own mind better. President
Cleveland, who seemi to have eyes for
everything, has been careful t call atten
tion to the necessity of enacting the
"stipulated legisla.iou" necejsry to maks
Ihe treaty o perative, and it is a pity tbe
country ia bound down ti the petty policy
of reciprocal treaties. Bat as they are ill
that is available it is time that Congress
should pay mora attention to the general
welfare of the United States than to the
schemes of monopolists and the building
up of a class of mischievous millionaires,
and put bueiuess between our neighbor
and ourselvea on n business footing.

was dead, killed by a stroke of eleetricity,
and that Torcici's head was burced to a '
crisp by the same fluid. A strange feature
of the case is, that the Louisiana Electric
light has no power as yet, aud it does not
commence nntil ntxt Monday. It is '
thought that the wire of another electric
light company must have crossed its lioep.
The electricity ran down the mm nf t ha '

Margella wasuufoitanately within the cir

Beilna Trees for Taraeellas Paraetes.
Washington, December 30. In reply
to a communication irom Sena'or George
of Mississippi in relation to the boxing of
trees for turpentine purposes by tbe
homestead claimants, Judge Stockslsger,
Assistant Commisiionor of the Gentral
Land Office, saya . "The process being un
doubtedly one of damage to tbe land there
is no warrant of law under which permis
sion can be granted, to use for the pur
poses indicated, timber npon entries to
which title hns Dot been acquired by the
claimant," it appears that the process of
boxing results invariably in the death of
the trees, and forest fires usually follow,
which render the 1-md worthless.
