Uun nft.-r tli's stat .-ni'-iit," says
Mr. Ilruncr in a couimuni
nicution to the Juiifsboro Gazette, "the
hid were opened and exumined--or nt
least I have Dr. Mercer's own statement us
evidence that they were." After making
this assertion Mr. Urnner proceeds to de
nounce Dr. Mercer in the nnt unmeasured
terms. He declares thut the doctor lu-s
been trampling uiion his rights and
privileges; that ho w'.U refrain
from using language most appropriate to the
doctor's contemptible conduct; that the
doctor had no right to open the bids at the
fine and in the manner he did; that the
doctor opened the bids in the presence of
his (Bruner's) competitor's best friends, and
found that the doctor's favorite among the
bidders was ltcaten; that copies of his
(Bruner's) figures were given to his com
petitor, who was allowed to change his
bid and in this way get the contract.
This charge against Dr. Mercer, who ap
peurs to be an honest and vciy careful officer
in the discharge of his duties, surprised us.
We lelicved that Mr. Bruner hud rushed
into print to denounce the doctor upon false
information; and now we know he did.
On Saturday Mr. E. II. Finch,
the trustee of the asylum resident at
Anna, published a card addressed to the
editor of the Joneslioro Gazette, in w hich
he says that '"the article published in your
issue of June 22d, over the name of one S.
B. Bruner, is simply malicious, and without
the shadow of truth, as Dr. Mercer was in
no way concerned in the award
of the last meat contract for
the Southern Hospital. The bids
were opened by me and I exam'ned them.
The substitution of another bid was im
possible without my knowledge. Dr.
Mercer has never had a voice in the award
ing of a meat contract, the whole business
being transacted by the Trustees and
The card is a little indefinite in he fact
that it docs not deny that a bid was sub
stituted, but we infer that this denial was
intended. There can be no doubt, however,
that Trustee Finch completely refutes the
charge made made by Mr. Bruner against
Dr. Mercer. Evidently Mr. Bruner is mis
taken in his belief that Dr. Mercer cheated
him out of the meat contract. If he is a
cheated man some other person than Dr.
Mercer was the cheater."
SHOULD BURKLOW HANG?
We have no sentimental notions about
hanjfing. Where human life is taken, with
deliberation end malice, for purposes of re
venge, gain, or lust, that life should be
atoned for hy the application of the
extreme' penalty of the law to the
culprit, reached tliUftH leal frniis.
In the rases of Slurry and (Vflnolly,
executed last Friday at Chicago, justice
was, 89 it should have been, vin
dicated, and society rid of two of
it4 most deprareJ and brutal mem
Ijcrs. To the commission of theft, in
one instance, they added the crime of mur
der, and if free from restraint would have
made an innocent woman the victim of their
lust. It was not shown that they bore any
malice toward McConville; but it was
proved U yond reasonable doubt that after
stealing the butcher-knife with which his
life was taken, they sallied out into the
street, Ixmsting of their intention to slay,
and it was McConville's unfortunate fate
to have been thrown across their path.
Gov. Cullom, very properly, we think, re
fused to interpose executive clemency in
behalf of the criminals, and they had to
answer for their crime. Now as to the
cajy of Burklow. Are there any sound
reasons why he, tx, should not suffer
for f ukinir human life ? Are there
".v extenuating circumstances to be
offered in his behalf ( Are there
any facts not produced upon trial
w hich might have w rought a different ver
dict To these propositions we answer yes ;
but that our readers may form an opin
ion without prejudice or bias, we will
briefly recite sour- of the leadingyeatures
in the killing of Wagner, and give state-im-nts
made ultfiin the past three weeks by
parties who were not ujton the witness
stand, but whose testimony, it will lx- ad
mitted, would have played a conspicuous
part on the trial. Alxmt the killing of
Wagner by Burklow there is no doubt.
The prisoner says he did it. As to the
cause then; are several versions; but all
agree that it was the result of a
quarrel extending uvea ti period vary
ing, according to the stories told, from three
months to four or five davs. Wagner's
wife, who is now in this city, and who is
exceedingly bitter against llurklow, says it
originated three months before its futuT
'termination. She was never, for some rea
J son, put upon the witness stand, Her
j statement robs the eiiin-i of its worst
feature--premeditation. She says there
had I u ill feeling existing between her
Hband and llurklow about a sow pig for
three inontliH before the killinir. but that this
was healed over, and the m -n beeaimi upon
speaking teriiH again; (hat ou the day pre
vl'ius to tho killing of Wagner, she la-eiiiue
involved in a quarrel with Mrs. Burklow
alxmt a , cow she (Mrs. V.) hud
driven Ironi iter . yard; that
her husband, who had returned ironi Cairo
where ho hud been on an excursion, was a
witness to this quarrel, and had taken up her
side of it just as Burklow reached his own
house. She admits that her husband was
at the time under the influence of liquor,
and while in that condition, shcvoluntecred
the statement that he was an ugly man and
often made it very uncomfortable for her.
When Burklow learned the nature of the
quarrel, Mrs. Wagner continued t J say, hu
told his wife to "go into the house, that she
would be the ruin of him yet." After this
Wagner and Burklow got hto hot words,
and at this point Mrs. Wagner gives the im
portant information that her husband left
his door where he had been standing and ran
Burklow, who had got outside his gate,
back through the gate, which Burklow
pinned behind him, and ' ito his house,
closing the door of this also. She says he
could not say whether or not her husband
had a club !u his hand when he
did this, or whether he sub
sequently used threats against Burkbw's
l;fe, but she does say that Burklow lived ill
dread of him, and was rtraid to give hi.n a
"fair show." Mrs. Burklow, whom tbe
law did not permit to testify in court, and
Burklow himself says that Wagner, diring
tin's row, did threaten to take his life when
he "got a good chance." Mrs.W.furtlur says
thiU both parties watched each other until
Mrs. Burk ow sys the
same th'ng, and1 Burklow confirms .t. Be-
s:iles tl,!s Burklow was told on the day of
the quai.-el by a man named Leach, now
living at Sanborn, Indiana, to be on his
guard against Wagner, and that Waguerhad
threatened to "use him up" the first
opportunity he had. Tls w.t-
ness also, for some reason, was not
heard at the trial. Burklow and Wagner,
it should be borne in mind, were working
in the same mill. Wagner was the first
to reach his post the next morning after thf ,
, ., , ., . , , ...
quarrel. Burklow followed, armed with
pistol, having in his mind a recollection ol
the events of the night before. He went to
the mill, and shot and killed Wagner, but
just what transpired a few minutes before
this no living soul but Burklow knows
and his statement can have no effect upoi
the matter. It has already been published
and, of course, is favorable to himself.
Now, it will bo seen from Mrs
Wagner's statement, which ii
new testimony; (1) that her hus
band returned from Cairo under
the influence of liquor; 2) that he took up
hcrquar.td with Mrs. Burklow; (3; that
this led Burklow into the quarrel ; (4) that
Wagner ran Burklow from the space separ
ating thoir houaoa into tlx houso Of the
lattcf, who pinned the gat and closed his
door Ichind lu'nii (5J that both parties
watched each other fhjough a portion of the
night; (0; that Burklow lived in dread of
Wagner, and "was afraid to give him a
fair show." (') that according to Mrs.
Burklow and Burklow, Wagner, in that
quarrel, threatened Burklow's life; 8i that
before this Leach, au absent witness, also
told Burklow tllat Wagner had threatened
This, it should Ik- remembered, is all
new evidence. It establishes what wus not
proved on the trial a provocation to the
deed and places Burklow outside the pule
of that class of murderers which the law,
finding guilty, hangs. It was not a suf
ficient justification to take life,
but no jury in the light of these facts,
would condemn him to death. It is said
that Burklow was not a g-xxl citizen. Ad
mitted. But that fact alorw should not be
jx-ruiitted to decide this casv.-. Resides, it
might lx; said that Wagner was a danger
ous character when under the influence of
liquor, and this assertion can U; established
by irrefragible proof. In the tow n of Bar
low, Kentucky, where he was raised, he
bear a had reputation, and terminated his
career there by shooting at his father-in-law.
His first wife is still living, and was
divorced from him.
Public sentiment in Jackson, John on,
Union, Pulaski and Alexander counties is
against the execution of the sentence of the
law upon llurklow. In Johnson county,
when: be was tried, between six and
seven hundred of the best people signed a
petition to Governor Cullom praying for a
commutation of the sentence. Among
these are the judge before whom he was
tried, the attorney who prosecuted him for
the people, eleven of the jurors who tried
liini, the sherilf, county judge and other
prominent local ollieials.
Iti view of all th-s; facN, we think we
can properly appeal in behalf of tie- people
of the southern tier of counties of this state
to Governor Cullon to temper justice with
ni'-rcy. It is not asked that the prisoner
shall escape punishment; but believing
that his crime does not merit d-ath, they
do ask that only such punishment should
be meted out to him as his crime deserves.
It is just such a c h ns this the fraiiiers
of the law had in view when they invested
the governor with the power of mitigating
tho seutencMif the crjrt i i capital ciib?s.
7e hoic his excellency may sed his way
tear to exercis;ng ii in this case.
DEATH OF Ql'EEN ELIZABETH.
i eeti'a lUlory of Enlaid.
If ministers ana courtiers were enunfng
o. her death, Elalieth had jo mind to
d. She had crjnycd life as the men of
he day had enjyed it, and now tint they
wre gone, she )ung to it w'th a fierce te
nt'ity. She hinted, she dancer1, she jested
will her younf favorites, she coquetted and
solded and folicked at sL.y-seven as she
hid done at iiirty. "The queen," ., rote a
curtier a f-w months lfore her death,
Mvas never k gallant tl'esemany years, nor
sc set upon joll'ty." She persisted, in spits
o oppostion, in her gorgeous progresses
fnm comtry house to country house.
$e clung to business us of
old, ni-d rated in her usu
al ikshion, "one who ninded
not 'it'ng up While matter of iiecount."
Hut leath crept on. Her face became hag
gar, and her frame shrank almost to a
skueton. At last her taste for finery dii
apieared, and she refused to change he;
drses for a week together. A strange
mlanelioly settled down tin her. "flic
hdd in her hand," says one who saw her in
lur last days, "a golden cup, which slie
oten put to her lips; but in truth her heart
stcined too . lull to need more
fi.ling." Gradually her mind gave
wn, pile iosi ner memory, the
valence of her temper U'cnme unbearable,
.er very courage seemed to forsake her.
She culled for a sword to lie constantly
beside her, ami thrust it from time to time
through the arras, as if she heard murder
ers stirring there. Food and rest became
alike distasteful. She sat day and night,
propped up on a stwl. her linger on her
lip, her eyes fixed on the fiixir without a
word. If she ever broke the silence, it was
a flash of her own queenliness. Wlun
Holiert Cecil declared that she "must" go
to lied, the word roused her like a trumtiet.
"Must!" she exclaimed; "is must a word to
be addressed to princes f Little man, little
man! thy father, if he had leen alive,
durst not hare used that word." Then,
as her anger sjient itself, she sank into
her old dejection. "Thou art so presump
tous," she said, "because thou knowest I
shall dk'.r She rallied once more when
the ministers In-side her bed named Lord
Beauchamp, the heir to the Suffolk claim,
as a tMwsihle successor. "I will have no
rogue's son," she cried hoarsely, "i'i my
seat." ' But she gave no sign, save a motion
of the head, at the mention of the king of
Soots. Mie was, in fact, fast becoming
nsible, and early the next morning, on
the 24th of March, 100:1, the life of
El'zabeth, a life so great, ho grange
and lonely in its greatness eblied away.
