WHO MAY AUKEST CRIMINALS.
Wo yestcrduy nicntionod tho tact that
Phnnmur Slurtin, tho nnro wlio struck
iMr. Irvin on Christinas dny, had been fined
fifty dollars mid costs for disorderly con
duet, and tlmt .loluison Fislmr, thu iicf,'ro
who misted Murtin in csc.npinjc when Mr.
Irvin had him under arrest, wus hold in
bond of two hundred dollum, to await tho
notion ot the circuit court which will
doubtless rnn;t out to luui what tho law
directs in Mich casea: one year in tin)
penitentiary or n linn of live bundled dol
lars. This fact is hiirhlv irratifvin since
both characters arc two of our most dare
devil mid dangerous darkles who havo
lon displaced Cairo and been a continual
torment to our officers. It is true that we
l.ave in Cairo a number of intelligent and
industrious colored men who are good
ctlz'-ns and who sincerely deplore1
the action ot such rascals, but only
t'j irmny negroes crawl among us,
blotched all over with leprosy, Erining
hi lcouilv,'as they applaud tlu lawlessness
of the 'Teatest villains. The impression
generally prevails union:; this class that
their rights are superior to all others and
that, do what they may, no officer can ar
rest them without a warrant and that a
private citizen cannot make an arrest under
anycircumstanr.es. Under this impression
many lay themselves liable to severe
punishment fur resisting or helping
persons to resist those who may at
tempt to make an arrest. For tho benefit
ot this class, we quote tho following law
which is section ol2 of the criminal coda
"An arrest may be nude by an officer or
I1Y A l'HIVATE rEllSON WITHOUT WARRANT
fur a criminal offense committed or at
tempted in bis presence, and by an officer,
when a criminal offense has in fact been
committed and he has reasonable ground
for believing that the person to bo arrested
has committed it. '
Under the above law a private person
may arrest without warrant another person
whom he catches in a criminal act. This
fact might be remembered with profit by a
number of our negro shoulder-hitters.
