and although we only have among our

JOHN THORNTON'S SENTENCE.
The Fotmrr CHUen f Rapids ci'y
to be Hanged at Ft. Mmlth, Ark,
Jane S, tar the Mnrder of His
John Thornton, formerly of Rock Isl
and county, mention of whose trial snd
conviction of the murder of his daughter
has .heretofore appeared in The Argus,
received bis death sentence at Ft. Smith,
Ark., on April 30 After being asked by
Judge Parker if he had anything to say
why sentence should not be passed, and
replying in the negative, the court ad
dressed the prisoner as follows:
Jenn Thornton: You have been con
victed of willfaliy.and with malice afore
thought killing your own daughter, Liura
Moynier. What I say to you is not to
upbraid you or to wound your feelings,
but that you may be reminded of your
true condition and what your duty to
your God and yourself is. The murder
was one of great wickedness and one
which exhibited great depravity.
From the evidence it was entirely un
provoked, being committed upon an in
nocent and unoffending girl who bid just
been married, and who was apparently
filled with the anticipa ions of the great
est happiness. Sbe seemed to have re
joiced because she had a husband to pro
tect her. The cause of your killing your
daughter is not absolutely known, but
there is a strong, ad I may say, reason
ably well grounded opinion, that you in
cold blood killed this unoffending girl,
because you either bad committed, or
that you attempted to commit that terri
ble crime which is worse than death.
God, your murdered victim and you
only know whe her this is true. I hope
it is not, as the crime of murder is bad
enough, but the crime of murder coupled
with the other terrible crime against mo
rality, decency and virtue, is so base and
so wicked, as to show a depth of moral
depravity scarcely to be looked for in a
human being. While I have not become
acquainted with all the details of your
past life, I have learned enough to satisfy
me that it has been one of cruelty toward
and eutrage upon women who have borne
you the relation of wife. You have had
many wiyes, and aside from your Indian
wife the same story of abu e, cruelly,
outrace and wrong irom you toward
them comes from them all. You have
led a life without moral restraint. You
bate led a life controlled by your baser
passions. You have led a life character
ized by a total disregard of your duties
cward others, especially those who had
put their trust and confidence in you as
your wives. One in the face of such
record as you have, one situated as you
are, has resting on him the greatest duty
to himself. It is strongly probable that
you will soon have to answer to your
God for the wrongs and crimes you have
committed. Your unquestioned duty un
der such circumstances is to prepare to
stan 1 in the presence of the Judge of the
Q iick and the Dead. There is mercy un
der His government for even one wbo has
done what even the wild beasts do not
do destroy their own off-spring. Bu
the government of God is just as well as
merciful. Its very justice demands that
mortals should do something for them
selves. If you are to be forgiven your
crimes you must prepire to conform to
the just laws of your Maker. You must
approach jour God with sorrow, with
Badness, over your past misconduct, and
with a repentant spirit. You must first
fully understand the great wickedness o
the crime for wliich ybu have been con
victed, as well as your past life. 9ou
must atone for your sins and for the
wrongs you have committed. Your time
to do this is comparatively short. You
must make diligent use cf it. 1 beseech
ou to do so. Then approach your Uod
with sorrow, with a desire for mercy, call
to your aid those who can give you good
advice, and lose no lime in preparation
for the great hereafter.
Thornton remaind standing during the
trying ordeal and did not manifest the
slightest emotion. Judge Parker then
passed sentence fixing the date of his exe
culion as June 28. next
