The most rcnmrkiililc trial, in som

the conviction of the prisoner, anil the
Konian Catholic priest Hoyle has been
sentenced to ljc cxeeiiteil on the
2!lth (lav of November next, for the
violation of the )icisiii of Miss Cicncv.
Whitaker, in June last.
Ministers of the Cuspd ilo not always
prove themselves superior to human
liriuities; they do not always prove
themselves, in contending with human
passions and vices, suerior to those
they offer to lead anil mmW in the paths
of virtue; thev are sometimes themselves
in need of the charity they arc so harshly
apt to deny to others. Hut it never has
happened before in this Stale, nor else
where that the public has been made
aware that weakness has degenerated
into crime, or that passion has ever been
indulged at the cost ol 'violence.
The sanctity of the ollice afjKravatcs
the gravity of the ollcnccand condemna
tion is more merciless because by whom
so much was assumed in accepting the
charge of functions sacred like those ol
the ministry or priesthood, much was
cxiecled of purity and self restrain. Vhe
leader and nuide must be so much the
better than the thick he leads as to safely
and unerringly lead. The Hock has the
riht to demand this immaculate puri
ty, this superiority to human weakness,
because the attitude of the jruidc is the
standard for the movement of the flock.
Hut all falling is not criminal, and all
lapses arc not irretrievable. It is just
and more than just, that in pronouncing
judgment upon him who falls, even from
the most conspicuous height, that he
who judges should measure thcunfortuu
ate by his own standard, and given rea
sonable indulgence to the weakness by
which he himself may lie tempted, and
It is rare in church history that theder
gy have made themselves obnoxious to the
civil criminal law. The sincerity of their
purpose has been demonstrated by their
suiierioritv to the temptations to the
commission of crimes under the statute
or common law. The execution of I r.
ImmIiI in Knglund in the last ccnturv lor
forgery stands out in bold relief ngains
the background of nil almost unbroken
record of clerical integrity. Lapses from
moral purity are unhappily not so excej
tional. lint it is left to liovlc to oiler the
first instance in modern ecclesiastical his
tory of a guiltiness subjecting the ierpe
tor to capital punishment.
His case may not be cited as example
to others. His was crime soatrociousa
to find no new imitations, becauscil is an
otTenec that finds no mercy ; as it stand
alone in clerical annals, without prcce
dent, so it may go down to posterity
without successor. It will lie neither
j;uide or warning because such are not
needed, lint it has this lesson, which
might be heeded in the dealing with other
capital otfeuccs under our statutes, that
with such crime the law is no rcsiiecter
of ktsoiis, and that it metes out its pen
alties with equal hand. The priestly robe
has no more protecting sanctity than
the tattered rags of the tramp.
Another lesson, at this time of needful
weight, is that the law may be trusted
to do its duty. The crime of liovlc was
such as to have exasjierated the public
anger to a stale of frenzy. Summary pop
ular punishment was urged as the proper
method ot dealing with it. Hut a delib
erate and impartial trial was jwrmilted
to decide the issue; the defence had the
benefit of zealous and able counsel, of
fair and intelligent jury, and of a merciful
and impartial judge. And is he begttiltv
if he be condemned to pay the extreme
penalty of the law.it is because, upon
calm investigation of the facts, he was
unmistakably proven guilty, and will
righteously have to abide by the decision
of the tribunal to which he apjKalcd for
the decisions of the questions of gnilt or
Without going into any details of the
evidence in the Hoyle case, we only men
tion that Solicitor Argo was ably aided
in the prosecution by Mr. T. I'. Devercux
and Mr. Armistead Jones, and that the
defence was ably and eloquently sustained
by Mr. Thomas C. Fuller, Mr. R. H. Bat
tle and Mr. George II. Snow, gentleman

able case, surpassing themselves, if possi
ble, in their manifestation of ability. We
take from the News-Observer of Sunday
morning the following closing proceed
Solicitor Argo concluded at (1.45
o clock. His peroration was clonuent
and powerful and held the attention of
the crowded court room riveted.
Judge Armtield immediately charged
the jury. He charged that they should
throw aside the fact that the" prisoner
was a Catholic and that they should not
allow their verdict to be governed by the
fact that he had been guilty of a moral
wrong. The question to determine upon
was the consent of the woman. If she
consented in any degree there would be
no rape. Fear of personal injury was
equivalent to force in the perpetration of
this crime. He then proceeded to read
the evidence bearing on the question of
The jury took the case at 8.30 o'clock
and retired. No verdict was rendered till
1 1.45 when the jury came into court and
gave a verdict of guilty.
Before the sentence was announced the
prisoner was permitted to address the

He alluded to playing cards at tlie jail
and said he always cxjiceted to do so
when he felt like it.
Hoyle wan applauded several times
during his remarks.
In referring to Solicitor Argo he said
that he had been perfectly fair during the
SKSTKNCKII TO UK IIANOHI).
After he had taken his seat Judge Arin
lield sentenced him to lie hanged Novem

was asked and granted.
The coolness of the condemned man
was remarkable. Immediately after the
sentence had Iktii pronounced he -turned
and spoke to his counsel and smiled.
The sugar trust is one of those mon
strosities of monopoly, the weight of
whose heavy hand has liccn felt in every
sugar dish and preserve kettle in the
-o mi try, It is not many years since raw
sugars were so abundant that they were
used as a cheap fertilizer in Hngland.
And though in some years untimely hur
ricanes curtailed production, the area ol
.ultivation was continually enlarging,
tnd the process of refining increasing, so
that at last we were all getting the best
sugars at prices not to be complained of.
Then came the trusts and combines; and
then sugar went up nearly n hundred per
cut, and cverbody complained. W
'uiow of late that the sugar trust has
been in trouble, and that its shares have
Icclined greatly in selling value; and as
.onlirmation, we are glad to quote the
following from the Philadelphia Record;
It is ordained that the tallest tree can
not grow to the heavens. For the most
formidable numoiiolv that was ever or-
'anized so defy the laws of trade and
ilesnoil the people there comes sooner or
;ater a day of reckoning. The career of
the sugar trust promises to be as brief
mil inglorious as was that ot its late
nodel, the coppersyndicate. Should anv
il' the conspirators who organized this
minopoly lie caught in the meshes o!
their own net there would be little sym
pathy in the public breast for their fate.
I'lie confiding people who have put their
lioncy in sugar trust certiticates, in the
esire ol realizing enormous prolits, can-
lot complain that they have not had
iinplc warning concerning the financial
baracter of the investment.
Ir. C.corgc Graham, of Charlotte, who
lias just returned home alter an extended
tour through California, tells the Char
lotte Chronicle many interesting things
ibout what he saw and experienced ;
imong other things, the following:
Iir. Graham says he was suffering from
i cold and stepped into a Chinese store
in San Francisco and with the assistance
if an interpreter asked for a remedy.
The Chimewcighed out anil give him the
following prescription which fie brought
home with him ' Five shells of locusts,
two large cockroaches, seeds of Chinese
wood, different sorts of bark from
Chinese trees, one Chinese lizard, dried

.mil tuadea tea of.which was to be taken
at stated intervals. The Chinese will
not use anything at all that the white
man uses. They send toChina for every
thing they eat and wear.
This last paragraph would seem to
justify many of theharsh measures taken
against the Chinese. A jieoplc who can
not assimilate with ours even in matters
involving the common necessaries of life,
