GEOnoIA HAS at last plucied up
courage onough to try her carpot

boon dangling in the courts a
number of years and demanding a
spoody trial. That he has boon a
great rascal is an acknowledged
fact, but whether he will be caught
by the Georgia courts is a difforont
No Compromises with Thieves.
Tho Investigating Committoo, it
is said, have succeeded without
iuch trouble in fastening vomno
crimo or other upon almost ovory
Radical leader in the State. In
dealing with these knaves there
should be no distinction. If the
example be once sot of lotting any
culprit off, then it will be exceed
ingly difficult to draw the line at
any particular point. Thore is not
a Radical in the Stato who is not
more obnoxious to some portion of
our people than any other of the
crow, and his pardon would in
evitably raise a howl of dissatisfac.
tion. The people, whon they heard
that Moses, Woodruff, Leo, Jones
and Nash had boon grautod im
munity, were soothed only by the
plea that this course rendered
absolutely certain the bagging of
nobler game. The only result thus
far has boon the conviction of
Smalls, who has appealed and is
now actually sitting in Congress,
and of Cardozo and Cass Carpenter,
who, we believe, are out on bail.
The rascals richly deserved pun
ishnient, but their crimes wero not
a whit more heinous than those of
others. Pattorson, thanks to a
disagreement between the Senate
and the House, would now, if his
health permitted, be luxuriating in I
the Senate Chamber and drawing
his five thousand a year. Cham,
borlain pursues his unruffled course
in a law office in Now York.
P'arker is in jail, we believe, hut no
dooisive stops have boon taken in
his case. Neaglo is at large.
Bowen waxes fat in the shierift"s
offiee in Charleston. Worthington
is at liberty to seek fresh fields. A
matter of fifty or a hundred minor
thieves are at large, plotting for a
revival of the Radical regime.
It is true that justice moves t
slowly1 but it should nevertheless
move perceptibly. The p)eople, too,
would be long suffering and patient
were they assured that everythingc
would be done properly in its C
order. But when they hear it
rumored that one faction woul
spare a certain Radical and prosa
cuto the rest, while another faction
would vigorously prosecute the
favorite of the first faction, and
would yet shield some other crimi
nal, the people wish to know wvhen
this thing will end. The straight
Gourse is the best. No favor should
be shown, All should be prose
outed alike,. or all should be suffered
to go free..
The straight-out campaign of
1870 caused a surrender of all in-~

It is said, however, that the recal
