Judge Hardin told the jurors
that the United States stocd first
in the civilized world in the num
ber of homicides committed, ac
cording to population, and that
there had been an increase in
homicides during the last decade
Kentucky, he said, stood fourth j
in the list of states, on a com
parative basis, for the number
of killings. According to Judge
Hardin this startling state of af

There is no doubt that a bet
ter enforcement of the law al
along the line would have a ten
dency to lessen the number of
crimes, big and little. I n locali
ties where there is no wholesome
respect for the law, there is
bound to be crime, and la xity in
the punishment of sm all offenses
naturally brings other and larg
er infractions. The carrying of
concealed deadly weapons is a
serious offense against the law
and one that almost inevitably
leads to offenses still more seri

honored customs" in Kentucky,

era. Kentucky would not stand so
high in the homicide list but for
the fact that "pistol toting" is a
common practice. Men who
habitually carry weapons are
more than likely to find some oc
casion or excuse for using them
in a way detrimental to peacel
and order. This is one instance. !
at least, where effective punish
ment of a minor offense would
prevent other offenses of larger
