From yesterday's Paducah Enterprise
we learn that the people of Paducah were
startled on last Sunday by tlm report that
a prominent citizen of Benton, III.,
and ex-circuit clerk of Marshall county,
was found dead in a room of the
European hotel in Paducah. He had on
Saturday been going around tlm
city talking and joking with his friends
aud had gone to the hotel, telling the
clerk that he wanted to sleep for about an
hour. Although he was seen lying in his
bed by several of the servants of the house,
it was not discovered that hu was
dead until Sunday morning, Ho was
e i ...... i. i . .
louiiu wuii nis Knees drawn up
to his stomach and a black
vomit issuing from his mouth. The cor
oner's jury found a verdict of death from
an unknown cause, but after some inquiry
it was found that he had been in the habit
of using morphine and the supposition is
that he took ah overdose of the drug.

It is to be hoped, of course, that such ap

Iu this the last term of the county court
stands out in boh) contrast to preceding
terms ot the same court. It is true that a
number of innocent persons were dragged
inrougn tlm mire; but that was not a fault
of tlie county court; it is clmrgablc
to the star chamber court, which sat with
closed doors ami sovereign inein, grinding
out indictments against honest and honora
ble citizens solely upon tho utterances of,
perhaps, malicious accusers. The gentle
men composing this star chamber court
wprc undoubtedly honest in their findings
andimbla.no v-leifcvcr attaches to them;
but the law which pl-iced them in that
very disagreeable position is made to
stand forth in all its monstrous reality by the
wrong they innocently did in smirching
the fair names of innocent men. It is also
true that several of the verdicts in 'tho
cases tried were not strictly in accordance
with public expectations uud not what tho
generally accepted facts in the cases seem
ed to demand; but this is chargeable, in
part, to tho inexperience of the prosecu
tion and its inability to procure the evi
dence necessary to make a case. The
county was thus put to considerable
oxpenso (the court fund being exhausted
gome time before tho end of the docket was
reached) without bringing what are com
monly believed to lie guilty parties to
justice. However, much has been gained
in spite of these somewhat discouraging
facts. A great evil lias been attacked and
its yotaries havo been aroused to a proper
sense of its ludcousness and their danger
In pursuing it; cvidonco has been
accumulated which will make
convictions easier In tho future; tho court
and the statu g attorney liaye gained expe-
hurried, but bus steady than before, thc
smile upon their faces vanished and a flush
orslnine mounted to their cheek i, which
forces the conclusion that they were still
conscious of having violated a cardinal
moral law, and that they were not habitual
drunkards. Tins man and woman are,
undoubtedly, as able to dis
tinguish fright from wrong when in a
sober condition as they were when their
understandings were dulled by liquor;
they had not heeded the still small voice
of warning within, but had drowned it and
their man and womanhood iu a surfiet of
sensual pleasure. They are not nhameless,
but they are morally weak and therefore
they are objects of pity to many noble
hearted people. The other picture was
also of a young nun and woman. These
had enjoyed a buggy ride and "a glass or
two." The former was a respected
citizen mel a hiishiinil
the latter was one of the fallen.
In the course of their drive thay entered in
to a dispute, became angry ami ended up
oy a roug.i nght. They were arrested
tried, fined and diigraced together. Thi
couple were also able to distinguish ri"bt
irom wrong; they, tw, failed to heed the
voice within; tlmy, too, drowned it and
their in in an-l womanhood in sensual in
uHigcnce; they, too, were not shameless,

that this U not right? Who will
say that willful, deliberate crime should
not be punished by society as well as by
the law, according to its enormity? But
why do some we will say a few, of our
good people, draw such a dividing line,
between the two pictures of crime altove
presented? Why do they turn from the
one with loathing and meet the other with
a tear dimmed eye and heart swelling with
love? Perhaps no responsibility no
blame, attaches to the person, who willful
ly and knowingly becomes a slave to his
appetite and for a time siwks to the level of
a brute, ns certainly does to him who also
knowingly and willully becomes a Hlavo to
his passions and also sinks to the level
of the brute; pei haps it is right that drun
kenness should call forth sympathy and
that lechery should be (and rightfully)
condemned as a heinous, almost unpardon
able Bin. Yet both are the , result of a
weak morality though, probably, in a dif
ferent degree!, and the former has not even
the slightest basis in physical.nature. Per
haps it is right to ostracise thc man who
sells liquor, to spurn him and heap upon
him all tho epithets that a fertile total ab
stinence brain can conceive, but to
meet the man who drinks it till lie becomes
drunken, with open arms and words of the
deepest commiseration; perhaps it is right
to punish laciviousness with fine and prison,
or a ropo ami n lump-post, and to reward
drunkenness, which is a child of tho same
parent, with tho greatest kindness and'eon-
Bideration. These propositions ire too
deep for us and wo do not, therefore, at
tempt to pursue them further.
