It I Imposslbl" for Justice Orewer of
the KUpremp couit to de1i'er nn address
without deepening the conviction in tho
minds of the people of this country thnt
he l one of the most advanced and pro
foundly nrogresshe thinkers of the
t'nlted States Justice HreWer 1 so
thoroughly inoculated with the fearless
ness of his Western training that he Is
never deterred by precedents, or estopped
by traditions; nnd When he give hi
views oil any subject, they are certain
to be bold, original nnd abundantly forti
fied by common sonse
Thl"i statement Is nmply borne out by
his address before the Detroit Bar As
sociation. Ills ostensible suhjett was
tho nped of n better education for the
profession, but ho took occasion to ad
vance some profoundly pertinent lews
on the matter of the law's delays, which
are no less oppressive now than when
Shakespeare put nn Indictment of them
In the mouth of Hntntet. '
Justice Urewer argued with Irresistible
cogency ngnliKt the freedom of appeal
and for a curtailment of the prlWlcge of
continuances. He declared that a Jury
could be trusted to mete out Justice
moie Implicitly than an Appellate court
and he pleaded for a few errors on the
part of JurloH and minor courts, rather
than tho Injustice of protracted litiga
tion, pointing out the fact thnt tardy
Justice Is often tho gientest injustice.
One of the most radical positions taken
by Justice Urewer uns that against ap
peals In criminal coses and for the
establishment of boards of review and
pardon, which shall pass upon tho sen
tences of trial courts, mitigating their
severity where manifest Injustice has
been done, but never Interfering on the
mete ground Of the comml'slon of tech
nical errors'. The distinguished Jurist
points out the danger of carelessness on
the part of trial courts and Juries when
they Know that a suiierlor trlbunnl will
certainly relew their action, and going
down deeper beneath tho surface than
thinkets usually go, bo comes out at last
upon higher gtound than thinkers usual
a Mioitr tw-niwicv.
It li believed to bo practically settled
that the presidential campaign next year
Is to be u shoit one, nnd It will be a,
good thing for the country If the com
mittees of tho leading parties hhall de
termine to make It to. There is no
leoson why the disturbance should be
kept up thtoughout live or bk months
at the enormous epence of time and
money usual to such contests.
The people have never been so well
educated upon tho Issues to come before
them in a national canvnss as they ore
now. Tho ontlio three years s-lnco the
Inst election has beau a period of edu
cation. The people have talked of little
but politics and m?ny of them have had
nothing else to do for n larger poition
of tho time.
An appeal 1ms been made to the Re
publican League clubs to at onco begin
organization for campaign work, and
tho suggestion is a good one. It has
been a weakness with Republicans that
they have placed too little dependence
upon organization, relying upon the gen
eral Intelligence of voters to bring them
to the polls when the time comes to vote.
Put theie Is strength in organization
which can be had In no other way
There should be a Republican League
club In every town In Missouri and It
should be organized now. Jt should not
be formed for the promotion of any
body'F boom for the presidency but for
work in tho Interests of the pnrty. Any
other purpose means disorganization
Tho nomlnen of the convention will be
a man who will command the hearty
support of every Republican who be
longs to the pnrty from principle. He
will stand on a platfoim that will de
fine his position on the great questions
of the day. The organization suggested
should be for the support of that candi
date, whoeer ho may be, and not for
the purpose of manipulating conven
tions In the interest of this or that
favorite with the hope of reward when
the election Is over.
There should be enough patriotism In
this time of need to Insure a cam
paign of piinclple from start to finish,
and with this in view wo would say tho
more clubs the better.
wi: uoi.i) Miu so.
The sum of $100 per month Is a vory
small one to servo as a basis for n con
flict between the county court and the
county marshal, but the principle In
volved Is a very big one Everybody ex
pected Keshlear to work the publlo for
al) he could get out of It, but the people
did not expect him to begin quite so
soon, They thought he would wall until
he had at least warmed his chair. Rut
no sooner has he gut possession of the
office to which he was never elected
than he tries to work . smooth scheme
to get four of (he gang put on the pay
roll at an advance of $ss per month
each above their present salary. Kesh
lear evidently thoroughly appreciates
both "where he Is at" and what he is
there for. He knows that the gang,
aided by the courts, put him there, and
he knows the gang wonts all there Is
In the position, for it te In all ptob
ability th last tlnu- the gang will get
a place at the public trough. It the peo.
pie ever again fail to bury the Rung so
deep that not fien the courts can tesur
lei t It, they destine to get bled.
There is not the slightest doubt that If
the marshal can show to the satisfaction
of the county couit that the pit-sent
force is not suilKtcnt to serve all tho
papers of tho olllce, the com t. will give
Iilm a force that Is adequate. The peo
ple want their busimss transacted with
expedition and they me willing to pay
for the service that Is needed, but when
they elected the present county cuutt
they declared In unmistakable teims
that the) wanted no more mid on (he
tieasuiy by the gang The are willing
to pay thotn,uid for bulue, but not
one cent foi tilbute

tiuth that hurls and It Is the enterprise
of the gpeclal correspondent and the
regular new associations that hna

Tho Spanish minister is diplomatically
Justified in decrying the rebellion nnd
from tho standpoint of a minister he can
consistently look upon the uprising as
one of a few malcontents, second class
rlgnnr.ikorM, etc. But when he dops
this he belittles the prowess of the Span
ish troops. If tens of thousands of
Spain's best soldiery, headed by the fore
most general In all 8iln, cannot put
down nn uprising of inulattoes nnd
eimrmnkera, what would be the out
come of a eonnirt between the Spanish
troops and the best classes of Cuban
oltiitens? Scnor Do Lome would do well
to "wnnt the truth" himself. In the
meantime, the American press will keep
on wanting the truth and getting It.

The call Issued by Governor Morrill
for a convention to promote tho pioject
of deep water harbors on the Oulf const
In Texnn should meet wlt'h a ready te
sponse on tho part of every Btate west of
the Mississippi. It Is a Kubject In which
the entire West has a deep Interest, nnd
the time Is not distant when an outlet
for our products and an Inlet for com
merce In exchange will be absolutely
necessary. The completion of the
Nicaragua canal Is expected to mark
a vital chnngo In the channels
of American trade, and the short
est route lo tide water In the
direction of the Spanish Americas
will be a material factor in the benefits
to come to the West from this source
The money already expended has been
put to good use. It has been demon
strated beyond question thnt at least
three good hnrbois may be made In
Texas, which will accommodnte nil the
shipping for many years to come. Rail
roads have been pushed to theso points
in the confidence that Improvements
would follow which must bring the
larger ships to the dock. These roads
ntford direct communication with the va
rious points where Improvements have
been Inaugurated from nil parts of the
Western states There Is no room for
loe'.il Joalousy in the premises. All sec
tions Included in the call Issued by Gov
ernor Morrill aie alike Interested in the
pioject, which is to enlist the people of
tho various states 111 the subject, vtnd
'through them to Induce congress to
provide tho necessary means to the car
rying out of the deep water enterprise to
a successful end. The convention will
afford an opportunity for tho .delegates,
Including the congressional teprosenta
tlves of the several states, to acquaint
themselves with the -work In hand and
the importance of the earliest possible
completion of the wotk nlieady begun.
We believe the attendance will be large
and that a great deal of good will be ac
complished by the meetii j.
