DEFECT IN INDICTMENT
itar Yet Throw the Case Out of Court
anrt Allow tho Guilty Man to Go Free
of Further Punishment Other Matters
Judge Rolapp held another late ses
sion ot the First District court on Sat
urday to conclude the tual of the
Ralphs adulleiy case, Allien testi
mony was offered upon the part ot the
government to prove that Mr. Ralphs
and Miss Duke acted for many monttiB
and upon many occasions as devoted
lovers and the cross-examination of
some of the witnesses who gave this
class of testimony greatly tickled the
large aulience out to hear the racy
developments in the case. The couple
weio traced at lako reaorts, at picnics ,
out riding, at dances, etc., and a rep
etition of what was said and done by
the two upon these occasions was
laughable at times, sentimental at
times, pitiful at times and sometimes
rather shameful. The two were no
slouches at the love-making business,
rather were thev experts ; and while
many of the onlookers learned some
"points" sb to "how it is done," not
one ol the witnesses for the prosecu
tion who gave this line of testimony
but has vowed that forever more here
after they will never, no nevera gain,
come into court to give away the secrets
of episodes such as buggy rlde3, etc.,
where what is said and done is eup
poBed to be said and dene in sacred
confidence. Much testimony was also
offered as to the good character of th9
prosecuting witness. The defense also
pruved the good character of the de
fendant Ralphs an1 undertook to prove
that Miss Duke went out frequently
with men and boys, drank beer and
otherwise behaved herself unbecom
ingly but it was of no avail. Tne
jury were out only a short time and re
turned into court with a verdict of

torneys succeed in getting the indict

stances this will be a serious techni
cality for the offirers tor the govern
ment to cope with. The last grand
Srv for this district under territorial
rue was on Saturday discharged.
The state laws, it is ndd .mil
not apply to this case. If this is

PUllly and deserving 01 pumsnmem

cr,me nor pay other penalty than he has
already done in the monetary outlay
and humiliation of the trial just had.

Uttle story about tho sharp witted driver
of the public coach iu which she made
somo of her expeditions.
At one point, where the steep roart
overhangs the river, Davis, the driver
always took the opportunity to lighten
tho load for his horses.

The Nev YorK Law Journal recently
contained r,n editorial article favoring
G modification of the test of insanity in
criminal cases. Tho ability to disfcin
guiBh boween right and wrong in ref
erence to the act committed and to
know that it was wrong is a standard
of mental capacity required in New
York to render a person responsible fci
crimes committed by him.
The Law Journal argnes in favor of
grading punishment according to the
mental condition of offenders who may
be "partially insane." Many alienists.
Including Dr. Allan McLano Hamilton,
do not recognize "rjrtial insanity,"
saying that a person is either sane oz
insane. The state m which tho mind
acts correotly as to its judgment, but
tho will is controller, by somo impluse
which tho mmd cannot master, is not
recognized in mdny criminal courts,
because it has been found that the ex
cuse of irreslstiblo impulse led to toe
great a number of acquittals in caseB
where defendants were really guilty of
In civil cases it is easier to deal with
persons whose minds are so affected
that they cannot come to correct con
clusions as to certain subjects. The is
rjos at stake are frequently loss impor
tant, and it is possible to learn whether
a particular act was done under tho in
fluence of the delusion or mental weak
ness which affects tho person concerned

The Union Signal says with refer
enco to Cardinal Gibbon's sermon
against woman suffrage: "We are struck
with tho similarity between this utter
ance of a Roman Catholic prelate and
the woll known utterance of a bishop
of tho Methodist church. The ideal 0?
both is woman on a pedestal, rocking
the cradle and ruling the world! Wo
wonder how many American men are
ready to indorse tho statement that this
nation is under petticoat government!"
