"Judge Hart charged the jury at

Hart requested in advance that there

above it appears that the Judge antici
pated an acquittal.

It is to be remembered that at the
time of the killing, it was reported
that a white man was at the bottom
of the trouble between the two Ne
gro women. Now, how could there be
x complete and fair review of the
case of the people agrlnst Rindy Dil
lard, with the chief instigator of the
tragedy eliminated from it? Why was
he not compelled to give testimony in
the case made possible by bis conni
.vance? Hai he been a Negro, could
the case of the people against the de
fendant have been tried without his
evidence? Would it have been? Why
was his "name not mentioned?" Was
it right that this man whoever he
was should be shielded from the
limelight of publicity, any more so
than the dusky damsels with whom he
associated? Did not the association
of the three place them all on com
mon level of "social equality?" When
crime resulted from their 'triplicate
relations, were not the surviving two
answerable to the people as principal
and accessory to the death of the
other? Why smother the man's name
ed to solicit and collect In
