A LESSON FROM KENTUCKY,
The trial In Breathltt county, Ky? ot
the assassin of Marcum makes an Inter?
esting study, and wo oommend tho situa?
tion especially to those who seem to think
?hat there are occasions -when lawless?
ness Is justifiable.
Marcum was shot down In cold blood,
and when tho assassin was captured and
put on trial witnesses were ? fraid to tes?
tify. Thero was one honorable exception,
however. Captain Ewen was approached
by partisans of the assassin and offered
GG.,??? If he would refuse to give testi?
mony. Ihe alternative being that he him?
self was to be a-seasslnated. But he re?
fused to accept the bribe and he refueod
to be Intimidated by the threat, and told
what he knew. Ho was placed under the
protection of the soldlors. but while he
was thus held friends of the assassin
set fire to his hotol. In the hotel were
the wife and ten children of Captain
Ewen, nnd the assassins hoped, so It is
said, that by setting Are to his homo and
putting the Uves of his family in dan?
ger, to entice him away from his retreat
and bo get an opportunity to slay him.
The mob is in the saddle In Breathltt
county, and tho officers of tho law seem
to be powerless. Tho mob Is In authority,
and those who defy the mob take their
lives into their own hands.
That's what lawlessness means. That's
what must Inevitably be In any commu?
nity where the law is trampled under
foot. There can be no middle ground.
Either the constituted authorities must
rule or the mob will rule. Therefore it
behooves all citizens who believe in law
and order, and especially tho weak who
are dependent upon the government for
protection against the strong, to obey
und uphold sjid defend the law.
THE POSTAL SCANDALS.
The "Washington correspondent of the
New York World, epealting of the latest
development In the Washington poBtofflce
scandal, says that "It proves conclusively
that Perr^S. H*ath. now secretary of
the Republican National Committee and
former First Assistant Postmaster-Gen?
eral, used the Postofnce Department, and
particularly the Washington city post
office, a? a clearing-house for the pay?
ment of the political debts contracted by
IMark Hanna during tho first McKinley
campaign," and adds:
"Heath forced appointment after ap?
pointment on the Washington postofnce.
"He arbitrarily ordered, the payment of

"He paid his own traveling expenses
out of the ? u ri il t. of the Washington city

"He had his persona] friends drawing
two and sometimes three salaries from

"He bought supplies recklcntly, with?
out comp?titive bidding, and paid exces
Blv? prices therefor.
"He used the Washington city post
office to further the political ends OX the
Republican party, without r'-gird to pro?
testa from auditor? or iinar.ctal officers
or from anybody else."

THE NORFOLK INCIDENT.
The Norfolk Dlcpalch says:
The Times-Dispatch, of Richmond,
tnkos es Its text for an extremely able
editorial a paragraph from Its Norfolk
rorrespondenco relating to tho recent trial
und release of a young man well known
Tho Times-Dispatch's theme Is set forth
"Our Norfolk correspondent, in report?
ing a trial In tho Corporation Court of
that city, says that the accused, who
was on trial for larceny, Ms well known
ns one of the most expert, railway clerks.
nnd because of his numerous nnd respect?
able family conncrllons, after deliberating
fifteen minutes, tho jury returned with
a verdict of not guilty.'
"This is, Indeed, n startling statement.
We know nothing about the merits or
demerits of Ilio case, but If the licensed
was guilty of the crime with which he
was charged, how, In the name of jus?
tice, could he bo acquitted because of
his family connections?"
Our contemporary then adds: "We hope
that thero Is some mistake about this."
Afterwards it reads as pretty and ftB
Just a sermon on. Its text as wo have
noted In many a day.
Tho Dispatch hopes that It would not bo
necessary to go lo Richmond to llnd a
newspaper to protest against any ruling
iof a court or judge or notion of a Jury
that would permit ? man to go free nnd
uiiwhlpped of jiiBtlee In a local court
simply because of his pull or social posi?
There were circumstances that sur?
rounded the case In question that leave
the verdict of judge and jury a most mer?
itorious one. nnd wo are sure that any
prisoner, no matter how little his Influ?
ence and how poor his social standing,
would have been treated as was the young
man In question under similar circum?
It seems that the charge rested against
i ho prisoner of obtaining, under false pre?
tenses, something over five hundred dol?
lars on a certain day. As we understand
the mntter. his counsel showed that he
bad obtained something less than twenty
five dollars on this day, or. at least, a
rmnll enough sum to make the matter
"petit larceny," at the worst. Moreover,
It was not shown clearly or conclusively,
ss we understand the matter, that ho ob?
tained even this small sum under prom?
ises which wero proven to be falsehoods.
At any rate, the prisoner had been pun?
ished already by confinement In the rltv
Jail for some five weeks. Perhaps the
fact that his family connections or ante?
cedents wero gond affected the jury some?
what. It Is certain Hint those who had
known him under brighter auspices did
not desert him entirely when trouble over?
look him. But there Is no reason, so fai?
ns we can learn, to believe that ho wns
not tried strictly In accordance with the
law nnd tho evidence, nor wns tho pros?
ecution lacking In vigor. Noi? do we be?
lieve that he could possibly have escaped
If those had been against him.
Wo aro glad to hear this assurance"
from our esteemed contemporary. As we
stilted In our comments, we did not under?
take, to pass ju^jmont upon the Norfolk
man, for we knew nothing about the
en bo except what wo had soon In the pa?
per. We employed the Incident as ? text
for some general observations, and as.
according to the Dispatch, tho Norfolk
man was acquitted for other reasons, and
not because of his family connections,
of course, our comments did not apply
to this case.
In the course of his address nt Brown
University on "Individualism," Governor
Montague said that there wns inherently
no antagonism between pronounced Indi?
vidualism and the education of all the
children of the State.
That Is true, but thero Is ? danger to
individualism in the public school system,
a danger which we have time nnd ogaln
pointed out, and which we think should
be kept constantly before tho attention
of the Democracy of tho United States.
The development of Individualism im?
plies self-reliance ?nd personal responsi?
bility. When a person becomes a pen?
sioner upon the government he In sure
to lose his independence, his self-reliance,
and In a measure the senso of his per
Fonal responsibility. If the children of
this nation are reared with the Idea that
they nre to look to the government for
support, It will not be many generation.?

We are In favor of the public srhool

Walton sprang up and thrust his arm
ricrnss the table, taking the hand of tha
pirate with a grip that made him wince.
The latter turned find selected from the
rhelf a brace of pistols.
"Sbovo those In your belt," he com?
ma tided, "ft?tft now on you're tho mate
of the Vulture."
"And with your consent," cried Wal?
ton, "I'll drink to a long crnlso nnd a
merry life nbonrd her!"
"Well said,, and drink henrtyl" ex?
claimed Bedlaw; then, while his evil
eyes vaguely sought the closed door of
one of the starboard rooms, ho added
grimly: "Aye, m-ite; we'll make merry!
Drink hearty lo that! Hearty Indeed!"
Walton paused with his glaas half
raised to bis lips.
"Avast!" ho cried, Impulsively, with ?
"I've forgotten my messmate! Tore
Cod. sir. I'm bound to stami by him!"
"You'll slnnd by me!"
"Aye, aye, but harkce, eap'n! When we
slipped cables from the Wunderer, old

lad. and I'll stick by you through thlcit

law, with ominous severity. "Dare you

The pirate's hand had gone to the bull
of one or his pistols, and for a moment
Walton stood without speaking. Then
he set down bis glass upon the tabi?!
and laid beside It the weapons given
"Back water a bit. sir!" he said quietly!
"I didn't mean to forget Bon Bogen"
when I bargained with you! 'TwaS. ?

me! And 'fore God, air, ns I know he'd
have stood by me, so I'll stand by hhn

yet! And you'd better far see me stand
true to him than traitor?since In a way
It shows how I'd have stood by you!
There'? your weapons. Captain Bedlaw,
and our bargain's off!"
It was a bold step to take In the face
of all that was Involved?his own life,
perhaps, nnd surely the fate of the two
women he at all hazards was resolved
to protect. Not for an Instant had'the
pirate's frowning eyes left his. Yet In
Walton's words .and bearing there'fiad
been that which carried some convic?
tion that softened th? lines about Red
law's cruel mouth.
"it takes two to mnke ? bargnln?and
to break It!" he snld sternly. "Who Is
this Ben Ixigan, and would he Join with
you In this?"
"Aye. sir, ho would wero he asked!"
cried Archie, eagerly. "And I reckon It

The question was nyked with a leer of
such Import that, had Redlaw felt the
slightest suspicion Of treachery on Wal?
ton's part, it would have been dispelled
by the evil glow In the young man's
eyes. The pirate vented ? lia'-sh laugh,
und nodded significantly.
"Aye, they are," ho rejoined. "Which
one d'ye fancy?"
"'Taln't that!" said Wnlton, quickly.
"You're master here, and I've no fancy
ahead o' yours. But I was thinking?"
"Thinking of what?" growled Bedlaw.
"They're safe enough In ono of the star?
"Is? the door secured."
"No! What .lifted of that? Do you fear

"Not mi you mean, hut In another
way!" exclaimed Walton, pointedly.
"There's no telling whut women like
tlieni'll do, if driven to desperation. Send
a bullet Into thomsolves like an not, I'd
advise stowing all o' these weapons nut
o' their reaoh."
Bedlaw glanced nbotit the cabin, and
muttered an oath.
"You're right about that, mate!" he
exclaimed, more than Over coimlncod of
Walton's knavery. "Bend a hand and
we'll shove 'orti In my cabin!"
Tlie work was quickly accomplished,
and the main cabin divested of every
weapon of which advantage could be

villainous satisfaction over his compan?
Yet Walton'? motrre In accepting the
offer made by the pirate captain may
easily he imagined. He realized only too
wen tho desperate situation of Lady
Somers nnd Emily, whoso beauty now
seemed to be their greatest misfortune,
That they had fallen into tho power of
a renegade capable of any degree of bru?
tality and outrage was but too apparent,
and tha circumstances woro fortunate,
indeed, or so Walton considered them,

Nor had Redlnw'u notion In pressing
Walton Into his servlco been without
reason. His every observation of the
man had seemed lo warrant his esti?
mate of him. Ills fiery attack on the
two -Mongolians his ferocity In those mo?
ments of peril and excttemont, along
with all his subsequent conduct, had In?
dicated a man of boldness und courage,
whom some spirit of rlure-dovll Vlospe?.i
tlon had led to hold life and honor ut
I lie lowest figure. Tlis killing of the
mate, moreover, had left tho p?tate with
no f.t hand for the office, and It was
rather with exultation than snaplclon that
he accepted Walton's consent to become
a freebooter, so artfully had It been given.
The change? In the cabin having been
made, ha led tho wny above hoard,
meant Im? explaining that bla second
mate, Mr. Baggerte messed und housed
In the forecastle along with the orew,
that by, no moans ? mutiny should b*
hatched up undlsco> erod. This unusual
requirement indicated to Walluu the ut?

They. ?ounij Seggette grimly pacing the
after dork, with his long nrms crossed
on his broad chest, and his gazo bent
upon several of the crow engaged In
battening down the midship hatch, which
had been opened for stowing tho arm?
and ammunition secured from the Nordt
Brandt berore lier scuttling. The sun
now lind crossed tho meridian the sky
was cloudless and under a full press of
sail the Vulture was fast sinking the
cloudy lines of shore far astern, and
bearing away to tho southeast.
"Call all hands oft, ?aggeltn," com?
manded Rodlaw, in hie coldly stern
fashion. "Have the steward serve a
double lot Of grog to each man. Shake
hnnds with Mr. Walton here, you dog,
and look pleasant. He's to fill Rains
ford's berth, since those yellow devils
gave him his quietus. Seggetta In sec?
ond mate here, Walton, and nn Infernal?
ly Ignorant cutthroat ho Is! But he's to
bo relied on, which Is moro'n I cnn say
of most of my crow of sharks. Shake
hands, you two!"
Rolling nearer on his short logs, while
the sanguinary compliment received
served to dispel a passing dissatisfaction
fmm his ugly oyes, Mr. Snggotts com?
piled. Hn took Walton's hand for a mo?
ment, thon turned to bawl loudly:
"Aft here! All hands aft! A double
'lowanco o' grog, steward, nnd d?d live?
ly! D'ye want them furrou lubbers, too?"
"Yes." sold Redlaw, bluntly.
Mr. Saggotts roared his Instructions to
tho Nord Brandt's Inen also, and they
enme trooping nit along with the others
nnd massed In tho waist. ? wicked
looking lot they were, with their scarred,
swnrthy faces, their great bare arms
nnd breasts tattOodcd with hideous de?
signs, their unkempt attire consisting for
tin--? most part of flunnel shirts and dirty
canvas breeches, the latter held up with
leather belts containing tho Invariable
"Call your man up here?" said Rod
law, turning to Archie; nnn In response
to the letter's command Ben Logan lum?
bered sullenly to the quarter-deck.
There was nothing In his manner to
indicate that nn understanding existed
between them; quite the contrary. In fact.
Yet a subdued Consultation resulted ns
Archie luid predicted; and Logan, playing
his part well, signified his willingness
to follow Walton's load and become ono
of the Vulture's crew.
The remaining five men taken from the
Nord Brandt, exclusive of Lieut. Vail,
were thon individually consulted by Red
law. Their action In tho matter was
more or less shaped by the example set
them, and only two briefly demurred
from the offer mnde them. Tho alterna?
tive ot being pitched into tho sea was
enough to have decided almofct any man,
however, and these also resolved upon
taking chances with the rest.
Evidently thlK scene was no now one
to the Vulture's crew, for they grimly
welted Its outcome, and listened Indif?
ferently to Rcdlaw'n stern announcement
of the result. Grog meantime had been
generously served, and the addition to
the villainous crew, which nearly re?
placed those lost In the conflict of the
morning, was received with rather hearty
cheers. That thin half-dozen could ac?
complish any treachery against fivo times
their number of his own desperate gang,
even If so inclined, gave the pirate no
uneasiness whatever. He felt quite equal
to preventing anything of the kind.
"Take the ship. Mr. Walton." he com?
manded, these agreements having been
reached and the men dispersed to their
several duties. "Shorten sail nnd shape
her course to tho south. Have those
men divided in the watches, Saggctts.
nnd keep an eye on 'em for a time."
