general public it tbtt at least Ihrxe of tbe

never committed In tbe state of Illinois
than tbat of Dr. Cronlo, and lbt tlte
perpetrator! of tlie dastardly deed iliould

blow at juntU-a and rlifht.
Tbe verdict a surprise to every

tbe evidence wits circumstantial, it was
ufllcientJy rflT.'.-Vuslve ' fasten Ibe
belneus cnum upon these men, and tba
defense advanced by tbeir own counsel
was one of tbe strongest indications ot
guilt. It was reasonable to suppose,
therefore, tit At, tbe penalty would be
"banning by tbe neck until dead. for if
guilty of such a monstrous crime, the
statutes of Illinois Impose capital pun
libinent and nothing else. In rendering
the verdict that they did the jurors vio

acquitted the prisoners or sentenced them
to death. This was their plain duty un
