It will be seen that Auditor (iore
turned into the state treasury the
net sum of $1 12,K07.ii2, after paying
all the expenses of the office. Among
the items paid into the treasury was
nearly $sno received as intere'st on
stale minis iii ins nanus. j ins is a
new departure, and Auditor (Jore is
the pioneer in this matter of giving
to the people interest on their own
money, the practice having been for
the auditor lo not only retain tins in
tcrcst, but also the further sum of
$.r,MIU, which last sum Mr. (lore has
Mr. (lore's statement is for six
months only, yet he turns into Hie
treasury a much larger sum than has
ever before been turned in for any
one full year. The largest amount
paid into the state treasury by his
predecessor, (len. C. V. Pavey. was
in JM'.I2, when he paiil in only f'Jl,
71.02 for the entire vear. It will be
also noticed that for the expenses of
the ollice, exclusive of advertising,
Mr. (lore spent only $7.5X0.39, while
his predecessor, as shown by page 84
of the last auditor's report, spent for
the same items miring 1X92, fl9,
181.55. The .Springfield Register calls at
tention to au interesting and note
worthy fact in reviewing Auditor
Gore's statement, viz:
It will be noticed that among the
items accounted for by Mr. (lore is
nearly $H(H) received as interest on
state funds in ins nanus, ah inter
est on state funds heretofore has
been pocketed by republican auditors
in addition to $3,500 salary as audi
tor anil $5,000 as insurance, eommis
iionert which last sum Mr. Gore has
not retained. Auditor (lore is the
pioneer in the new departure of ac
counting for interest on public funds,
and this course demonstrates that
the democrats made no mistake
when they selected him for the im
portant office he holds. The people
of Illinois an now see what they
have been j laying for the republican
"whistle" in state affairs. The State
Register congratulates Auditor Gore
and the pet pie of the state upon the
facts showr. by his semi-annual statement.
When Liberty Wa Imperiled.
Judge Samuel Blatchford's death
gives Mr. Dana an opportunity,
turned, it is almost needless to say,
to excellent account, to recall an in
cident in history whose importance
has never been as generally appreci
ated as it ought to have been, the at
tempt to arrest the editor of the Sun
on the charge of libel, drag him to
Washington to be tried by a district
court, anil thereby subjected to in
dignity and outrage as a warning to
other journt. lists to keep silence re
specting fra id at the national capi
tal. The attempt failed, but it failed
only beca.isc the application for a
warrant for Mr. Dana's arrest, based
upon mere i lformation in a DistiLt
of Columbia police court, was made
before a feailess and learned federal
judge, w ho declined, even at the ris-k
of offending the powerful coterie of
scoundrels w ho were enmeshed in
the Credit Mobilier and kindred
scandals, and refused to override the
Had Judfc Hlatchford been as
pliant' and inconsiderate of his ofli
cial oath as ft supreme court judtreof
this state proved himself to be in a
similar case, it is almost certain that
the liberty o' the press would have
needed to be re-established at perhaps
Judge Hlatchford laid down the
principle tint libel is one of the
crimes whic 1, under the constitu
tion, must le tried by a jury, and
that the accused is entitled not to be
first convicted by a court and then to
be acquitted by a jury, but to be con
victed or acquitted "in the lirst in
stance by a jury.
The person to whom these words
were mainly addressed in 1X72 was
John I. Dave lport, who was engaged
by the Washington ring to silence
newspaper cemment in New York.
Yet eight years later this same
man, John I. Davenport, obtained
the co-operat on of a supreme court
judge of this state, who descended
from his great and honorable emi
nence to try, under the tenuous dis
guise of a magisterial examination,
and convict so far as the form of
law would let him a prisoner cliarg
ed with libel.
With Judge Blatchford's decision
staring him in the face and burned
into his mem ry, this cheerful con
spirator wentthe length of convict
ing of libel in commenting upon the
Morey letter n defendant whose con
stitutional ri; ht to a trial by jury
they had no hesitation in stealing.
It is well to recall these historical
facts at times. They remind one of
the desperate if not infamous meth
ods to which the enemies of democ
racy are always liable to have re
course when in power.
