It is a mistake to suppose that the
frolicsome cyclone has hunted winter
quarters. A Texas freight train was
gently lifted from the track Friday and
converted into kindling wood.
The Mt. Olivet Democrat, a bold, dashy
and independent paper, is just now giving
the magistrates of Robertson a good frail
ing for selling a turnpike and for some
other little underhand work. Among
the many little spats given them is this :
"One more dose of old rooster soup and
Stickrod whisky, and the magistrates will
sell the county."
Law cuts many peculiar capers in its
rulings. It appears that the intent of
the law is to screes the guilty on every
vital point instead of making a thorough
investigation for the truth wherever it
may be found. Its rulihgs are to give the
prisoner the full benefit of all the doubts,
and then turn him over to a doubtful
jury for justice, In the minds of the
masses, the law is a peculiar and a very
doubtful resort for justice hence, the
constantly growing spirit of resorting to
mob violence everywhere.
The "Tkll Sycamore's" great speech in
the defense af Hooker Stivers here Saturday
was a boquet of slush-gush pleas for
sympathy, based on the presumption that
Kentucky jury-men were a set of self-esteemed
fools, who would drink in any
amount of Southern chivalry gush and
fill up on vanity instead of doing their
duty. He alluded to "Our own Breckinridge
at Stone River and Bragg at
in a truly sickening,
style, utterly disgusting even to
many brave followers of the lost cause.
It was dished out in such style as to
convey to true men, "will you sell out
principle for gush?" He also had a slang
bombshell phrase which he took so
much stock in as to reiterate it half a dozen
times, For keen cutting, deep, effect,
his speech was a school boy's as compared
tojthat of Commonwealth's Attorney

Editor oj News: The Maysyille
Republican states in its last issue that I
resorted to the illegal proceeding of trying
to swear the magistrates off the bench
in the Rogers case. That statement
needs an explanation.
Both the magistrates sitting in the case
had expressed themselves that Rogers
was justifiable in the killing, and I had
many other good reasons to know that
the Commonwealth could not recieve at
their hands a fair trial. I had them both
summoned to testify on behalf of the
Commonwealth, having as one of my
reasons for so doing that they might retire
without any mortification, and with
credit to themselves. The opportunity
was not accepted by either, Believing
that they wTould not retire, I made, to
dendant's counsel, a proposition, owing
to the general belief, and my own beliei
that Mr. Rogers would be "white-washed"
if he was tried before that Court, that
we would agree to let two good unbiase 1
Justices try the case, against whom there
could be no objection. This proposition
was promptly refused by the leading
counsel for the defendent. Seeing that
the magistrates were determined to stick,
and that the defendant was determined
to have them stick, I then offered to
stating that the Commonwealth
could not aet a fair trial at the hands ol
that Court, still hoping that the uiagis
trates would take the hint and that decency
would them to retire from
a seat that they had disgraced. The fil
ing of the paper was refused. I then of
to file my grounds to dismiss the case;
this the court refused to file. I then
moved to dismiss the case, aud strange to
relate, the defendant objected to being
released, this objection the court sustained.
I refused to introduce any evidence
before a court that I had sworn would do
the plaintiff injustice. The result was a
"dead lock." I did not wish to do anything
illegal or do Sam Rogers a single
injustice, but I did not propose to give
him the prestige of an acquittal at the
hands of a packed court.
If he.had as good a case as his attorneys
claim for him, I could see no wrong
in having it investigated before an impartial
tribunal, nor the object he had in
holding with such tenacity to the court
against which there were such serious
