Among other provisions it amends
the law of peremptory challenges .so
that In capital cases the accused Is
allowed only ten challenges and the
State is allowed five. a
It would puzzlo oven a legislative
brain to assign any reason for. this
change. Thare is entirely too much
tinkering with the law in this genera
-.Mankind have brought the law of
twenty peremptory challenges from a
day that may almost be said to ante
date written history, and somehow or

hands of parties accused of crime.

Mr. Jones, the late Sonator from
Florida, began life a carpenter; he
worked side by side with slaves; he
started at the bottom of the ladder.

penter was a prince among Senators;
he was reckoned a skillful debater and

body that had a Garland, a Conkling t
and an EdmundF.
All at once, and without an appa
rent cause. Mr. Jones, a few years 1
ago, left the Senate, the scene of his t
. most splendid triumphs, and took up *
lise abode in Deti'olt. HIe refused either
to attend the Senate or to resign; his
term of ofilce at last expired, and the )
Florida Legislature dieoted Mr. Pasco
to succeed himi.
