THE JUSTICES WEPT.
THE JURY RENDERED A
VERDICT OF ?NOT GUILTY"
Late Yesterday Afternoon-An
Unparalleled Scene in a Mas
sachusetts Court Room.
NEW BEDFORD, Mass., June 21 .
A nid the waving of handkerchiefs
and tumultuous cheering yester
day afternoon Lizzie Borden re
joiced that she was to go free. The
dark cloud that had been hovering
over her waa dispelled. Tears fell
from the eyes of the stern justices,
and the sc^a was such as has never
been known in this country. The
justices made no effort to stop the
demonstration. Their hearts wei*
. wi th the people, and for a few mo
ments they forgot law and deco
The jory filed into their seats at
i :30 p. m., and were polled. Miss
' Borden was asked to stand up, and
the foreman was asked to return a
verdict, upon which he announced
"Not guilty." - .
The dosing scenes in the trial
were in direct contrast with those
which had preceded it. Heretofore
all had been decorous and in keep
ing with the dignity of the most
dignified court in the country. But
. when the verdict of "Not guilty"
. was returned, a cheer went up
which might have been heard half
a mile away through the open win
dows, and there was no atteiapt to
check it The stately judges look
ed straight ahead at the bare walls.
Sheriff Wright was powerless to
wield the gavel which lies ready
for his use, and not once during
the tremendous excitement, which
lasted fully a minute did he make
the slightest sign of haying heard
it. He never saw the people rising
in thek seats and waving their
handkerchiefs in unison with their
voices, because his eyes were full
of tears and completely blinded
for the time.
Miss Borden's head went down
upon the rail in front of her, and
tears came where they had refused
to come for many long days as she
heard the sweetest words ever
poured in to-her willing ears, the
words "Not GnUty."
Mr. Jennings was almost crying,
and his voice brok?) as he put his
hand ont to Mr. Adams, who sat
next to him, and said, "Thank
God!" while Adams returned the'
pressure of the hand and seemed
incapable of speech.
After the verdict had been re
ceived the district attorney moved
that the other case against Miss
Borden be nolle prossed, and the
oider of the court was to that effect
Chief Justice Mason then grace
fully thanked the jurois, in appre
ciation of their work and faithful
service, and reminded them that
the precautions taken with them,
which may have seemed irksome
at the time, were solely in the in
terest of justice-a fact which
they undoubtedly realized now.
The jury was then dismissed.
Governor Robinson turned to
f he rapidly dissolving jury as they
id out of their seats and beamed
ri- with fatherly interest in
indly Ayes, and stood up as
M. .owltoii and Mr. Moody
came ?, +o shake hands with the
counsel for tue defence.
As soon as possible the room
was cleared. When the spectators
had finally gone Miss Borden was
taken to the room of the justices
and allowed to recover her com
posure, with only the eyes of
friends upon her and the caresses
of devoted admirers.
At the expiration of an hour
she was placed in a carriage and
driven to the station, where abe
took the train for Fall River, her
home no longer probably, Lut still
the only objective point for the
LIZZIE BORDEN RETURNS HOHE.
FALL RIVER, June 21.-Lizzie
Borden returned with her sister
this morning to bet room on Sec
ond street after having ?pent the
night at Charles B. Holmes' resi
dence on Pine street. They drove
up to the gate in a closed carriage
and their entrance was moat pain
ful to witness. There were very
few spectators, for the crowds of
last night knew nothing of the
hour when the long imprisoned
girl would return. They denied
themselves to all callers in accord
ance with the suggestions of their
counsel. The sofa on which Mr.
Borden lay when be waa mur de

Lizzie spent a very pleas;
night and was very cheerful

girl s broke down completely wb
they entered their old home. 1

people of this city has be
changed greatly by the verdict ?

The sudden news of this mar
death awakens in me such ke<
sorrow, such a sense of person
loss, that I feel constrained to gh
however hurriedly, some sort
expression to it. He was so pui
so honest, t-o strong, so straight b
fore man and God.
For many years he honored n
with a personal attachment ra
amongst men. Reticent and mode
he did yet unveil himself to
chosen few. And what revelation!
What simplicity, what courag
what single-mindedness, whi
clearness of vision ! In profoun
insight and guileless life and big
purpose he had few peers. An
his love was so like a sister7!
sweet, tender, uplifting, purifying
But I mean not to speak of tb
many and manly qualities he poe
sessed in like degree with othe
great aud godly meu, but of th
two he impressed me as possessin
in pre-eminent degree, namely, hi
purity and his honesty.
He was a pure man. As pure,
truly believe, asa pure womat;
This is rare among, men. He wa
not simply pure in deed, but ii
thought and feeling, He was pur
in the primal fountains of his be
ling. Let me lovingly repeat tba
this man honored me with ire
cuent admission into the ver;
holy of holies of his nature, am
I knew him. He stood upon th
white heights of personal purity
By what heroic endeavor he attain
ed it let the giants tell. He trans
mitted its fresh, sweet light un
dimmed, unrefracted, uncolored
Among living men his equal ii
singular and phenomenal purity i
not known to me.
He was an honest man. Thie
too, is rare. I refer not to hones
dealing with our fellow men, thii
io common ; nor to honest dealing
with God, this also is not uncom
mon ; but to honest dealing witt
cae 'a self. He was honest to wa rd ?
others; the full recognition anc
ready acknowledgment of hif
lowly status toward God was ?
primary quality of him ; but thif
man went further, he was hone s I
with himself. How rare this is!
He would not even try to persuade
himself that he was what he was
i not, or that he believed what he
j did not. With dominant and mas
terful convictions his hatred o?
?sham in conduct, speech, oi
I thought was something unique
and terrible-like that of our Lord.
( Through conventionalities to the
reality of things and men hie
glance went, with pitying contempt
[for the weak hypocrite,^ with
flaming indignation against the
strong. His was a kingly spirit.
Through the mists that gather
about him as he crosses the Bar
I offer this glimpse of the man as
he really was-of the man as he
stood in the clear light of truth
and self-revelation to his friend.
Hall Piled Up Over Two Feet.
Aiken Journal and Review.
Mr. Nathan Bodie was in Aiken
on Wednesday last and reported
that on the day after the hail
storm he saw hail piled up in Mr.
W. D. Buckhalter's field to the
depth of two feet and two inches.
It was lying in a kind of basin
where it had been washed and
covered ever an aero of ground.
He said there were thousands of
bushels of hail lying piled up
there. In speaking of his losses,
said he had thirty acres of land
planted in cotton, and except
where protected by trees, every
stalk of cotton had been stipped
of its leaves and shapes. How
ever, he hopes still to make a half
crop of cotton. He thinks his
corn i s a total loss, but he proposes
to plant his stubble in corn.

Britain, Weems says that on the
day of battle "the ascending
ghosts of the slain, shook the tree

cypress once shaken by the thun

waters once dyed with the blood of
patriots, flowed gently on to their
destination. There was nothing
in nature to show that it was a

Some fifty yards above the
springs, stood a large brick house,
surrounded by a garden that bor
dered on the Monks Corner road.
A little north of this house was the
British line of battle, the right
resting on,'and protected by Eutaw
Creek, the centre at the Monks
Corner road, and tho left border
ing on an impenetrable woodland.
On the 8th of September, 1781,
Gen. Green was in line and ready
for battle, his forces were com
manded by Lee Henderson, Wash
ington, and Marion. After some
skirmishing between the marks
men of the two armies, they fell
back behind the ranks and the en
gagemen t became general.
"Long time, in even scale the
battle hung," but at length the
militia of Carolina broke, and the
left wing of the British left their
position in pursuit. This left a
large gap in their lines through
which Green at once poured all his
reserve, this turned the scale of
battle, and soon the entire English
army seemed completely routed.
Their officers rallied them however,
and used the brick house and pal
isaded garden as a port. Around
this house and garden the conflict
was fierce and the carnage dread
ful. Col. Washington was wound
ed and captured and torrents of
blood shed in the effort to capture
the fortress, but in vain.
Gen. Green seeing that he was
wasting the lives of his men re
tired several miles from the field
to his camp, and that night the
British retreated to Monks Corner.
This was one of the severest bat

A Metaphysical Combat.
The great colored preacher of
the Baptists is pitted against the
Methodist vine. The first says :
'.De Methodiss, ray brudden, is
like de grasshopper-hoppin', all
de time hoppin'-hop into heaven,
hop out, hop into heaven, hop out.
But, my brudden, de Baptiss, when
he got to heaven, he's dar. De
Baptiss is like de 'possum. Hunter
get after him ; he climb de tree ;
he shake de limb, one foot gone ;
he shake de limb, anudder foot
gone; he shake de limb, ebbery
foot gone ; but tink you, my brud
der, 'possum falls? You know,
my brudder-you cotch too many
-you know 'possum hang on by
tail, and do berry debbil can't
shake him off."
The Methody fell below par in
the colored folks' heart until some
time afterward, when this particu
lar belief again had admirers, for
the opposition clergy demolished
the Baptist as follows:
His text was : "My sheep hears
my voice and I know them, and
dey follows me." Then he said:
"In de Bible de Christians is de
sheep.' He had a heap of Bible
in dat p'int, and he preached a
mighty long time, and made dat
so strong no nigger can't dispute'
it. Now my brudden and sisters,

Why Incomes Should Be Taxed.
The Literary Digest notes the
growing popularity of the income
tax and says : ^
"Thoproposition to impose a fe.1
aral tax on incomes has evid y
assumed an important r ical
sifinificance. The report the
president will recome1 . ..d sucha
tax in his next message has not
been authoritatively confirmed or
denied, but it is apparent that the
democratic press is strongly in
clined to believe the report and,as
well, to favor the tax. The grounds
on which it ia urged are (1) the
justice of the tax, making the
burdens of government rest on the
strong in proportion to their
strength; (2) tho needs of the
treasury, owing, in a large measure
to the pension legislation; (3) the
need of some new mode of rasi
ing revenue if the tariff schedule is
reformed along democratic lines."
The three reasons here stated
for levying F.uch a tax are ap
parently unanswerable. It is cer
tainly fair audjust that the rich
people Aihose fortunes have been
largely built up by the favoritism
of the government should con
tribute more than the poorer
classes to the support of the
government. Tbe needs of the
teasury caused by the peusion
drain, and to be made still more
pressing by the cutting down of
our customs duties, will im
peratively demand an increase of
revenue, and the ouly way to get
it will be to increaso existing taxes
or tax something that now escapes
The sentiment of the people is
against increasing our present
tax rate. It is urged that the
thousands ol' rich men deriving
big income J from untaxed bonds
and securities should be made to
bear their proportionate share of
the public burden. They are able
to paya tax, and there is more
justice in taxing their incomes
than there would be in piling
he av ter taxes on the masses. As
matters now stand, there are
millionaires in th? eastern cities
who get off with a poll tax. Their
money is invested in bonds yield
ing them enormous incomes. They
escape taxation, while the average
citizen with his little cottage or
small farm is asked to make up
the amount which they should
pay into the public treasury.
The protests against the income
tax come mainly from the eastern
plutocrats.Their favorit eargument
is that such a tax would be levied
upon money and not upon any
particular class of persons, dis
poses of the first point. The man
who paid an income tax one year
might escape it the next year in
consequence of a reversal of
fortune. The tax is aimed at the
income and not at the man. The
second objection is of little weight.
England collects an income tax
and we collect an internal
revenue tax. We can collect any
other tax when we settle down to
business. A roan with an income
of $10,000 a year will return it
and pay the tay on it rather than
risk the penitentiary.

Once there was a very impor

head down and horns in a position
to raise him. He was a state
official, a man of dignity and
political power and of natural

THE END.OF THE WAK
The Honors Paid to Jefferson
The New York Sun has recently
made a remarkable utterance in
regard to the honors given to the
remains of ex-President Davis,
and when it is remembered that
the kindly and conciliatory ex
pressions came from the pen of
Editor Charles A Dana, who was
assistant secretary of war under
Edwin M. Stanton, the conclusion
may be drawn with safety that the
war at last is ended, and the era
of peace is at hand :
With imposing ceremonies the
body of the former President of
the Confederate States has been
brought for reinterment to the
city which was the capital and the
stronghold of the Confederace.
The demonstration of affection and
respect, in which a large portion of
our Southern brethren have taken
part, must be recognized as a
proof that the Confederate cause,
though lost, is still beloved ; and
that the organizers of secession are
believed by many of their child
ren to have deserved success,
although they were unable to
command it. But the most re
markable feature of the occasion
has passed unnoticed, namely,
that the honors to the memory of
Jefferson Davis have provoked no
word of protest from the North,
although they were rendered at
the very time when we com
memorated those who died to
The spectacle presented at Rich

inuendo the stubborn hostility of
the defeated. The republican
idea? which triumphed in the
English Commonwealth, and were
stifled at the Restoration, re
coverer only a trace of their
former influence in 1688 ; and the
dav has yet to dawn when English
public opinion will tolerate the
erection of a statue to Oliver
Cromwell in Westminster Abbey.
Nothing could attest more
strikingly the enlightenment and
magnanimity of the American peo
ple than the fact that Northern
men can view without remons
trance or ill will the devotion of
their Southern brethren to the
memory*of tb* statesman in whom
was incarnate^ ?he effort to sub
vert the Union. Such patience,
such indulgence, such willingness
to make allowances, such com
prehension of another's point of
view, is without a parallel in the
experience of nations. In the
North it is so obsolutely true that
the war is over, and that all
animosities which it engendered
are effaced, that noirritation is
excited by the reluctance now and
than exhibited by Southerners to
forgot the dissensions of the past
and to remember only that they
are now the honored and trusted
citizens of a reunited country. To
?eel irr: tated is impossible, in
view of the a\r?Vening of the
Northern mind to a keen sense of
the difficulty of deciding whether,
as a matter of strict traditional
right, the attempt at secession
could not be justified. Among the
signs of this awakening, and of the
^curiously belated preponderance of
Calhoun's views of the Constitu
tion over Webster's, may be men
tioned the testimony of the
grandson of John Quincy Adams,
who, in his history of the Jeffer
son and Madison administrations,
points out that the first statesman
to proclaim in the House of Re
preseniatives the right of a State,
to secede was Josiah Quincy of
Massachusetts. That was a fact
which Massachusetts had for
gotten in 1861.
It was really the doctrine of
State rightSjCarried, indeed, thirty
years ago to an extreme incon
sistent with the safety and de
velopment of free institutions on
this continent, and to that extent
condemned by the arbitrament of
was, but still a doctrine, when
soberly applied, of deep and vital
moment to the republic, which is
honored at Richmond in the
person of Jefferson Davis. No
word, therefore, of rebuke, but
only regret that war was needed to
mark the limitations of the
principle, will be heard from those
who felt that unity was an even,
more essential guarantee of
American liberty and progress.

There is a general idea that the
President's salary of $50,000 a
year is all that he receives, and
that, when compared with the
salaries paid the soverigns of
Europe, this sum is not enough.
This is a mistake. In addition to
his salary, the President receives
$36,064 to pay the salaries of his
clerks and subordinates. His ?
private secretary has $3,250; his
assistant secretary $2,250; the
stenographers got $1,800, each of
five messengers $1,200, the steward
$1,800, each of the two doorkeepers
$1.200, while other employes are
paid in proportion, down to the
man who take care of the fires,
who receives $864. In addition
$8,000 are allowed for incidentals,
such as stationary and carpets,
$12,000 for repairs and refurn
ishing, $2,500 for fuel. $4,000 for
the greenhouse and $15,000 for the
stable, gas and other incidentals.
In all the President and his house
cost the country over $125,000.
