A KENTUCKY LESSON.
Kentucky receives considerable cen
sure for what are considered short
comings in its system of iurisprudonce,
or connivance on the part of its most
respectable citizens at gross violations
of the criminal statutes of the common
wealth. Shooting and cutting in the
.Bourbon State are of almost eyeiy day
occurence, and the guilty are permit
ted to go nnpunished and even unpro
secuted, in many instances.
That this is not because of the In
ability of the courts to secure speedy
trials to accused persons, the Scott
Jackson murder case, now being heard
at Newport, is an example. The jury
was impanelled without unnecessary
delay and captious challenges. Wit
nesses have been subject to no badger
ing. Irrelevant questions have not
been put to them, as a rule. The pro
secution has elicited what was material
and pertinent, and then stopped, while
the defense has not cross-examined for
the simple sake of doing so.
In many respects the trial has been a
novel one. It might have been made
more dramatic. This, however, would
not have enlightened the jury or aided
the court more than plain statements
of facts. The lawyers are not 'men
with national reputations. They ap
pear to comprehend what they are
about and do not under estimate the
duties they owe both to society and the
prisoner. The lesson is one which
might be studied with profit on this
aide of the river. Courier.

a few weeks until the plant is in oper

phrey has made the town the very lib
eral proposition of furnishing 14 arc
lights for ?509, which would be SS5.71
per light. The price is exceedingly low
as we know of no place that pays less
than $50 per light. A rough estimate
of the cost of lighting our streets with
the lamps, which are at present in use,
and the service of which is yery unsat

$350 and t400 making the difference
rather nominal; and when a fair com
