WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER IS. 1HH9.
Is one that will be accepted as the
proper one by all men having a natural
sense of justice and fair play. There is
nothing so abhorrent to those sentiments
as the secret and cowardly taking away
of human life under the sanction of secret
combination decreeing death for the vio
lation of a code with its rules of conduct
outside of the law, in open violation ol
it, prescribing offences unknown to it;
and in merciless execution of secret
mandates. These mandates usur
that supreme arbitration in mat
ters of life and death, doing that
which the law itself approaches with
hesitating solemnity, andconvertinginti'
murder that which in thecyeol hmnaniu
is little less than murder even when sanc
tioned by the law in the presumed inter
ests of humanity. The killing ol Dr.
Crouin as the result of organized con
spiracy as supreme penalty for offences.
the law, if it recognize them at all, would
only assign to the category of civil ol
fences, was one of the most dangerous
forms of assault that could possibly havi
been made upon the institutions of so
ciety. It was a deadly blow struck ir
the dark impelled by a concealed hand,
the more formidable because it could not
be anticipated, the more to be dreader
because it could not be foreseen when oi
upon whom it would fall. In the security
of an oath bound confederation unsus
pecting victims might be selected lor sac
rifice, stricken down in the full confident'!
ot pretended friendship, lured to theii
doom through the verv intensity of theii
own amiability, as was Dr. Cronin whei.
appeal to his humanity urged him un
thinkingly and unsuspiciously to hit
It was the knowledge obtained of tin
existence of these secret organizations, oi
the tremendous obligations impusec
upon its members, ol' the awful powei
committed to their hands, of the merci
less and remorseless execution of theii
commands, that gave such deep and uni
versal interest to the Cronin case in al
its transactions, from the revelation o
the deed to the tracking and arrest of tin
conspirators, through the long con ynuci
trial up to the conclusion of the excitinj.
drama with a verdict of gniltv as to tin
chief perpetrators. I'erhaps there is dis
appointment that life imprisonment wat
substituted for the death penalties, am
that the guilty men, like the Chicago an
archists before them did not c.xpiatetheii
offences on the gallows. We conceivt
that there was this difference: that tin
anarchists were open and declared ene
mies of human society, that they had ar
rayed themselves in open warfare against
it; that they had appealed with terribh
effect to the arbitrament of war; aiu
that the evidence against them was di
rect and positive, and of such character
as proved them to be unsafe, unrelenting
enemies of social order, and that in sel;
protection society must put them beyond
the reach of mischief, and also give de
monstration ol its right and its power to
deal with those who assail it.
The murderers of Dr. Cronin were not
less bad men, but they limited their pur
pose of mischief within a narrower
range. The evidence moreover, was cir
cumstantial; and while there is general
concurrence as to the justice of the ver
dict, there might remain in the public
mind the possibility that innocence might
hereafter be established, a possibility for
ever to be precluded by the assignment
of the death penalty. A sentence for life,
if maintained in execution, will suffi
ciently vindicate the power of society and
the demands of justice, and also serve as
warning to secret organization against
venturing into realms, whereon to tres
pass, is capital crime.
During Mr. Tyler's administration,
probably in 183, an epidemic of influ
enza overspread the civilized world. We
first heard of it in France though it
reached there from the east, Russia per
haps and it was known ns la grippe. It
reached the Tnited States in the course
of time, and also at a time when Mr.
Tyler, who had, as vice-President, suc
ceeded to the seat, but not to the policy,
of the dead President William H. Harri
son, had become intensely odious to the
old Whig party he had deserted and be
trayed. The physical annoyance of the
influenza, its sneezings and its coughings.
its swollen eyes and its aching limbs,
harmonized well with the mental and
moral discomforts of the disappointed
politicians; and the unwelcome, discom
forting invading new malady was unan
imously dubbed the Tyler Grippe. It
died out about the time when Mr. Tyler's
administration come to a close ; and each
alike have been forgotten, until this new
outbreak. Another Harrison preceded
this one. It is for the republicans to fear,
though they need not apparently do so,
Mr. Butterworth is in serious earnest
in bringing some one to account for the
liberties taken with his name in the Ohio
ballot box forgery cases, and has lost no
time in bringing the matter before the
bouse and demanding a committee of in
vestigation. It would be astrikingblow
of retributive justice that the stroke
aimed at Governor-elect Campbell, but
embracing in its sweep some of the most
prominent Ohio republicans, should re
coil on Governor Foraker. Had the for-
gery accomplished its purpose, he would
have been the bene6ciary, breakingdown
his democratic opponent, at the same time
annihilating his chief republican rivals. If
Mr.Foraker is found to be knowingly com
plicated in so comprehensive an infamy,
he will find as little sympathy in his own
party ranks as in the South against
whom his hostility was so open, active
and malignant ; and yet we would regret
to know that the future of a man so able
and brilliant must be forever clouded
with shame, and that he must prema
turely pass into the shades of political
Whcn Brazil so snddenly changed its
relations to the nations of the world,
and by easy bloodless transition passed
from under imperial rule into the expan
sion of republican freedom, there was a
natural cordial expression of gratification
in the American heart and mind. It whs
the sweetest and sincerest of flattery
that the most powerful prosperous peo
ple on the South American continent
should have adopted our model as their
own, and have taken the grateful step
of sweeping the last vestige of monarch
ical rule trom the Western Hemisphere.
1'he change was made quickly, quietly,
and so tar as we know, spontaneously and
unanimously. Information from Brazil
came with exceeding slowness; it leaked
out meagerly, and we cannot yet say
that we know enough to pronounce upon
the resultsof the revolution; whether it is
an Emperor deposed with the assent ol
tif all his subjects ; whether it is a repub
lic founded upon principles of liberty;
whether it is a president who wears the
cap of liberty and a ruler by the grace of
popular favor; or whether it is an Em
peror de jure who holds to his rights and
means to assert them ; whether a re
public with the destiny only of military
despotism; and whether the president
taking his seat by virtue of the force ol
arms, is less president than dictator,
with aims far more ambitious, and rule
far less gentle than that which marked
the reign of t he gentle, scholarly Dom
Pedro. The indications for peace and
lerpetuity are not encouraging just now;
they point to the inauguration of that
chronic tuibuleuce which has almost
tlways marked the Western republics of
A telegram in to-day's columns tells of
another of those church disturbances so
common in colored congregations, and
accompanied as usual with the display
ind use of deadly weapons. It illustrates
i marked negro characteristic iutoler
ince of the opinions of others and unwil
ingness to abide by the decisions of the
majority, whether in church of state,
f he decision of a jury, if adverse to the
case or party in hand, is never accepted
.vith patience or submission to the law ;
t is always ascribed to prejudice, the
nitcome of premeditated injustice. So
in politics, as recently illustrated by cases
n Edgecombe, and at a time when there
vas no pretext in the excitement of an
lection, w'len democratic negroes were
et upon and beaten for having an lex
pressing opinions different from those of
the majority. I'erhaps one side was no
better informed on the debatable ques
tions than the other. Hut the republican
:iegroes had been trained to act one way,
md it was treason to party and to race
to do or permit other course. It is that
characteristic blind intolerance which
unfits the race for the conduct of affairs
n which reason, intelligence and submis--ion
to results are assumed to be the
undanieutal essentials of popular gove
rnment. No government is safe or sta
ble when it is at the mercy of discontent;
liscontented because the minority does
not have its own wav.
There seems to be a tendency in the
liouse of representatives to give the coun
try a second edition, revised and cor
rected for the occasion, of the back sal
ary grab. Because members have lost
jiersonally by the unfaithfulness of a
trusted and indulged officer, good old
I'ncle Sam with his full pockets is ex
pected to makeup its deficiency, just as
an indulgent father who has given his
boy a quarter to buy some gratification,
is looked upon to replace it if the boy
should lose it and does so. So I'ncle
Sam, who has the purse of Fortunatus,
always filling up and never becoming
depleted, is supposed'to have no wiser
nor better use for his money than to save
liis careless nephews from the effects of
their heedlessness. And perhaps not un
reasonably, because some way must be
found to put the surplus in circulation.
Hut if the old gentleman should prove to
be so generous as he once was when
members of congress helped themselves
so liberally of what they claimed to be
long to them, much the same thing will
happen to them as that which befel their
predecessors. They will be left at home
to reflect in silly consciousness that they
had renewed the old folly of ripping up
the golden goose.
