MISCAR1UA GE OF JCS TICK.
We commented last week on the
enormous number of murders annu
ally committed in this country and
the relatively small number of legal
executions. Two cases have come
before the courts in Southeast Mis
souri recently which illustrate the
manner in which justice is defeated,
in even the most flagrant caes.
The trial of Newsum at Jackson re
sulted in a disagreement among the
jury, not, mark you, as to the defen
dant's guilt, as to which they agreed,
but as to the punishment seven fa
voring hanging and five being for a
term of 99 years imprisonment. If
juries were by law restricted to their
proper sphere that of passing upon
the guilt or innocence of the accused
there would bo one loophole the
less through which criminals might
escape. Newsum will bo retried at
a special term of court next mouth,
with the possibility of a packed jury,
and thus gets another chance for his
life a life forfeited by a dastardly
murder. Had the judge b?cn the ar
biter of his punishment, he would
now be under sentence of death or
The other case is that of Charles
Wear, son of Judge Wear, of Butler
county. Wear committed one of the
most dastardly and cold-blooded mur
lers m the annals of crime. Despite
this, he got a change of venue and
was released on bond. But for the
Teliance of himself and friends on the
manifold legal chances of escape, he
would now most probably be far be
yona tne reach of justice. J he case
Came up in Dunklin county last week
and from what we can glean from
the Dunklin Demitcntt'i very meager
report of the case, .the State filed
motion to nolle pros the case and
wanted to withdraw its motion to re
instate the same. The Poplar Bh'ff
Citizen tells us that the case was con
tinued on account of defendant's ill
ness. Wear has friends with money,
influence, and legal tact. It is abjut
safe to predict that bj' some of these
means they will effect the prostitu
tion of Justice and Wear will never
suffer the punishment he so richly
What wonder, then, that an im
pression prevails that there is one
law for the rich and influential and
another for the pior and friendless.
It is more than an impression it is
a fact emphasized by everyday ex
perience in our courts of so-called
Justice. Thus it is that a country
boasting itself at the fore-front of
civizilation exhibits to the world a
record of murders aggregating more
than those of all other civilized na

money plentiful and factories start
ing up again in all directions. When
the country at large knows what the
tariff rates are to be, the whole busi
ness machine will get to running and
the pendulum will swing back, we
hope, as far in the direction of pros
perity as it did in the opposite direc
tion. Tue express companies evidently
consider themselves higher than the
State laws. The law for the regula
iun w ineir cnarges passed by our
last legislature is being openly de
fled by them. The Attorney General
nas brought suit, and it is to be
hoped that this grasping monopoly
win be given a lesson. There Uno-

The Democrats who are denounc
ing the Wilson tariff bill as a ''cow
ardly makeshift," etc., seem to for
get a good many things. Among
others they forget an utterance of
Mr. Cleveland in his message of 1887,
which, at the time, all Democrats
applauded to the echo. This is what
"It is not proposed to relieve the
country entirely of this taxation. It
must be extensively continued as a
source of the Government's income;
and in a readjustment of our tariff
the interests of American labor en
gaged in manufacture should be care
fully considered, as well as the pres
ervation of our manufacturers. It

other name, but relief from the hard

laws should be devised with especial
precaution against imperiling the ex-

Then, again, they seem to forget
that the Wilson bill will create a re
duction in our revenue of something
like 47 ',000,( 0), whichwil have to be
made good by the imposition of other
taxes. A more radical measure
would make this serious question of
other taxes still more serious. They
forget, too, that Mr. Wilson's bill is
avowedly a tentative measure, and
that neither he nor anybody els?
claims that it is the amount of tariff
reform we mean to hav? ultimately.
Such changes cannot bj brought about
in a year or two without serious tem
porary damage to our industries, but
by successive steps in the same gen
eral direction we mayachieve a tariff
for revenue only without the jar that
is sure to occur if we p weed in the
iconoclastic fashion advocated by our
more hot-headed reformers.
Tin: everlasting cry of the Protec
tionist is that wages are kept up by
protection. Aside from the fact that
wages are controlled by the supply of
labor on the market and the demand
for the same, there is another fact
equally fatal to their theory. It is
this: The European operative is paid
at a higher rate for his outputof ma
terial than is the American. Two
noted German economists have com
piled independent statistics on this
question, which agree in all essential
particulars. From these we glean
the following pertinent facts as to
the labor cost of a given textile fab
ric jkt hundred yards in the United
States, in England and in Germany
and Switzerland. The U. . manu
factm-er pays $4.91 for the labor on
1.200 yards, or ile. per hundred yards
the English manufacturer pays $3.96
lor labor on tub yards, or obc. per
hundred yards; and the German or
Swiss manufacturer pays $2.83 for
labor on 4C6 yards, or 61c. per hun
dred yards. Our operatives accom
plish more because they use the
latest methods and fastest machines
and are more alert andenergeticthan
their transatlantic brothers, but are
more poorly paid in proportion to the
work accomplished. By the way, be
fore Mr. Blaine became an out-and-
out Protectionist, ho compiled and
published statistics which gave about
the same result as the above. Now,

Mr. Arnold's Klcctric Speech.
From the St. Louts Republic.
At last night's session Representa
tive Arnold, of Missouri, electrified
the House with a brilliant hour's
speech in favor of the bill. Mr. Ar
nold has not tried the House with
frequent speeches, but, on the con
trary, bears the reputation of being
one of the modest men of the body,
Last night, however, he took the
members by storm, and was applaud
ed to the echo. The general theory
of his speech was that protection was
such a monster that it had to be fed
all the time as it grew, and that un
less killed promptly it would event
ually ruin the country. He took op
portunity to have a word to say for
free coinage of silver, and. on the
whole, made an excellent impression.
The Washingtan Star of this even
ing says of his speech:
The Congressmen wlu failed to at-
nu last nigut s sesssion missed a
treat. They should have b?en on
hand to hear the most exuberant En
glish that has been poured out on the
tariffquestionsince the gas was turn
ed on. Mr. Arnold, of Missouri, was
the piurer. With SO uninterrupted
minutes before him, he talked just as
he liked. II j tore through the Re
publican ranks like a whirlwind and
told what ho termed ths unblushing
veracity about those monsters of in
iquity, the advocates of protection,
No pent up Utica contracted his pow
ers. Nothing escaped him. Ho de
nounced civil service reform, anti
silver legislation, war taxes and
about everything else on earth. Mr,
Lane, of Illinois, was in the chair.
PHnPI'EP INTO POETRV.
Jir. Arnold scattered picturesque
metaphors about as thick us raisins
in a pudding. Finding dull prose too
limited to express his long pent sil-
verite beliefs he emulated the exam
pie oi Mr. u egg and dropped into
poetry. He quoted Shelley at some
length and won his first round of ap
plause. He then unfolded a prophecy
of the fate of the men who slipped a
keen blade uuder the ribs of the
white metal last autumn and made
even Representative Blair join in
the general laugh that followed when
he spoke of the Democratic mono
metallists and told of tho day when
Presidential bees are humming and
tickling their cars with sweet music

west to chill theso tiny winged mes
sengers into silence. No man can
ever be elected President who will
disregard the Chicago platform.
"Verily I say unto you no politi
cal tail can ever wag the dog. " Mr,
Arnold closed with wild applause, in
which the galleries j lined. His
speech was delivered without the use
of notes and appeared in the Record
to-day. He has been complimented
freely during the day on his speech
