deml.xo are ns yet not fully public,

or terror, wueu iiu trembled iiKe n leaf
hhakun by the storm at the ghoL of tlio
murdered woman, whu stiiod be
fore his vision, ho cut bis throat, and
died to escape Ills great drend.
For years' lie has lived the life of a con
dom stricken wretch. W peoonally
know that he has told n gentleman in
thNblty-Mi gentlemnu high' In judicial
position, witli whom he formerly illllll
nted politically, nud who is known us
soul of truth and honor, that slncu' the
mu'rderof Mrs. Surrntt, he, Stanton, had
not known 0110 hour of peace.
Ssld he, when speaking of tho matter:
"Judge. It Is terrible! .That woman
wns murdered to appease tho"wrnth of a
party! And I was the coward who
struck the blow for tlioo who demnnded
this wrong Rut I have sufferi'd U!
(Jod! how I have siillered how 1 do

"Every night of my llfo J stunt! face
to faco with her I hear her daughter's
prayers for justice I eoher li httr dofllu
I see the Court which sentenced her
dancing like devll.s in hell nud saying to
'Vou! Ton! You iiD it! You,
Edwin M. Stnnton Edwin Munlercr
Stanton, compelled us to Hunter your
victim, nnd wo will winter you J' "
Those who knew him from themurdor
of Mrs. Surratt till tho day of his death
Anoiw how ho suttered. He would waken
from his sleep and cry out Ilko a child
for souittune. lo . . j
"Take her 0! take her away!" 1
Ho would nit upright in bed his .very
hair 011 end his face pule ns death Itself,
and tremble, 4111 thogrcut livid drops of
Hweat would trickle down his cheeks.
Then he would moan and cull for drink-
walk the Hour, and at las I Hud relief un1
derinllueuco or opiates, only to start in
horror again. His brilliant talents died
out. His ambition weakened. Id's
nerves seemed to rot. His soul cried for
relief even In hell. At lost, by his own
hand, to escape tho horrid vision of a
woman murdered by a tyrant, he cut his
own throat; and so passed from earth
to the bar of God, tho cowardly soul of
tho tyrant nud tool of tyrants, Jdwln
Who says God Is not just? Uiok at
tho record of those Republicans who havo
died raving maniacs, by suicide or viol

power which bus proteotod us in de

and will not punish more of those who
In the name ofUberty, loyalty, nnd Jus
tice, have robbed, murdered, destroyed
and outraged laws, Slates", people, and
even common humanity.
An advantage, is not yet satisfied.
Let the ones who have mot vipleiit
