patch from Yankton states, in substance,
ih.it the course of the jury has been tho
ource of general scandal, and their action
and the probable result of the investigation

nit of this, Judge Haines ccnsuied the

Hum they might retire, but without the

Who ever, except in the most rare in
stances, heard of a person prosecuted, pun
Mil' 1 and convicted for "compounding a
felony?" Yd tho compounding of a fel.
ony which simply means nu agreement
not to pinscciito is as much or a crime as
the felony itself. Felonies are compound,
ed almost daily and no attention Is paid to
it- A robbery Is committed, tho ciiminal
Is known, Is arrested and found to lie (,r
that class whose imprisonment Is necessary
lor the surety or society. Is punched y
h ! no i It Is moro for the ndvantago of
the person robbed to recover his propeity,
even If ho has to commit airline in order
to do so, tli.ui It is fr hlni to bring the of.
lender to Justice (or the safety of society.
A ioi Hon of the stolen properly , lecover
fed, an agreement made not to prosecute
although the proof is unqiicMlouablo-niid
the criminal Is suffcicd to again go at largo
to commit further depredations upon socl.
cty, and neither crime is punished. This
Is not tho worst of It. It Is bad enough, to
bo sure, that men should commit a crimo In
order to obtain a portion of tho property
criminally taken from them, but its infill,
cuce Is working far greater harm. Think
you the bank cashier and teller, when ho is
stealing the funds of tho Institution, docs
not think ho can make a partial restitution
If delected, and thereby escape punish-
ment ? The history of bank and trust com.
pany defalcation have shown that the dl.
rectors nnu siocKuoiuera havo oeon more
anxious to recover a portion of the ab
Btrnctcd funds than to set an example to
others In like positions, by a prompt and
oxcmplary punishment of the offender.
The case of Jay Gould and the "reformed
trie railroad direction is another case In
point, and o rcmaikablc one, too. Here
the proofs were strong, and by the judlcl
ous expenditure of money, in proper litl
gallon, the alleged abstracted securities
might have been recovered, and the alleged
"abstractor" cilmlnally punished, but
was settled with. Again, In the tecent de
falcation In the Now York state treasurer
ofllce, notwithstanding the first show
great virtue, the hearing has been pot
poiicil so that Phelps may icstoio a poillon
of the stolen funds, nnd thereby compound
his felony. As long as public sentiment
will wink at such proceedings, ho long will
Uclalcatlons and embezzlements continue.
i.ct two or three of the defaulters be sent
to prison, and half a dozen of these respec
table bank presidents and dhectors p.vy the
full penalty of the law for compounding
felony, and defalcations will not be

1 he death of young Lcggctl, a son of
tho commissioner of patents, while belli
initiated into a secret society at Cornell
University, has brought the whole subject
of tills class of institutions Into n peculiar
prominence, and elicited a discussion there
on, In the public pi ess, rarely aeenrded to
such matters, .lien s minds nnd opinion?
differ nnd, probably, always will differ In
rcfficncc to the expediency, or pi opricty
of such societies, but the fact lemalns that
they still exist. Experience, too, has shown
that they cannot be rooted out by cociclve
or oppressive measures. It Is an admitted
fact, too, that in some p.uts of the world
they in e an absolute necessity for the pro
tectum or the rights of the people. The
Independence of the United .States would
never have been achieved but for the exist
ence ol these secret organizations, whose
members made themselves known by means
of Slips" anil "signs." Hut the argu
ment is that those days are passed and that
no necessity longer exists for seciesy ; that
these oigniiizations aie antagonistic to
tice guvcrnmcnt ; serve to foster class dis
tinctions ; unduly elevate one individual at
the expense of another; obsti net the course
ot justice ; Interfere with elections ; and
numerous oilier similar chaiges. It I

ing any such tendency. A further, and
more penect, answer is found in tho his-
tory ol the icccnt lebcllion. Tho whole

the question whether secret societies are ex.

If men, whoso minds are iimtiued, who

faculties lo pursue In tho premises ? We
nre willing to concede that It would be far
better If they did not exist in connection
with college! but they do, and tho que.
lion is how to get alone with oxlstlmr fact!
A few years ago, the laws of the University
or juicuigau prohibited a student from be
coming a member of a secret foclcty under

gratulatcd themselves that they had sue

Soon nflcr this tlmo or, peihaps, heroic
tho custom grew up of publishing cata
logues of the members of these several

these secret societies did exist In that nar
tlcular college, nnd that four-flfths of the
students wcic connected therewith. Wo

A llllsbanil Ileal- III Wife lodcntli
Peter itldgcway, a laborer at the Cove,
Wcchawken, went on a spree on Tuesday
morning last. Ho did not go home In the
evening, and Ms wife, Ann, started to
search for him. She became drunk before
she round Mm In a low goggery thiee
rouithsof a mile from her house. They
caroused for several houis, and at 10
o'clock that night started homeward. They
quarrelled on tho way. When a quarter of
n mile on their way a Mrs. Marshall saw
Itldgcway knock his wife down and kick
her. The woman did not rise, and soon
became unconscious. Itldgcway, overcome
by think tumbled down beside her, and
they both lay hi the roadway until day
light on Wednesday morning.
Itldgcway then attempted to rouso his
wire to tako her home. He went to his
house, leaving her ill the road, returned
with a wheelbarrow, thiew her across It,
and v heeled her to his house, which Is n
dirty Jitllo cabin on the northern extremi
ty or the Klysinn Fields. There Is scarcely
any fiirnltnio hi the hut, and no bedsteads.
Itidgowny threw Ms wife on a blackened
mattress, mid going tip stairs tumbled down
on another, and went Into a drunken
I'aliick Kennedy, a boarder, heard the
woman groaning in the, foicnoon. Itldgc
way told him that she had fallen oft n
plank walk and hint herself. Some time
aftcrwaid Kennedy found her unconscious.
Dr. Klder found her daylng. Her face,
iirms.nnd legs were bruised black and blue.
At (! p. in. slie died. Itidgeway was lock
ed up hi the Wcchawken police station to
await Hie result of Coroner Parslow's In
quest. Itidgeway's stoiy that Ids wife fell
oir the plank walk and injiiicdjicrsclf is
absurd, as the walk Is tiowheie higher than
live inches. County physician Hack, Fri
day, mule a post mortem examination or
the body, and found It In n bad condition.
Itldgcway is about thlity yens old, had no
regular occupation, mid bears a very bad
reputation. His wire was about twenty
seven, and was a widow when she mairied
Itidgeway. She has a daughter of thiitcen
years hy her first husband.

amounting to between $300 and ij 100. A

ing to the knowledge of Wilson, he Imme
diately lied, closely followed by ShciilT

thltty men and boys ; but although WlUnn
was caught slghtof at different times tlur

and night setting in, further pursuit was
abandoned. The officers then telegraphed
