CHICAGO, rec. Ii Judge Kavanangb in
the superior court of Cook county today
rendered a decision of Importance to na
tional guardsmen throughout tbe country
la which be declared they bad a right.
under certain condltiona, to tak buman
life whll oa duty.
Tbe decision was rendered In tb case of
Joseph B. Klein, a private of tb First
regiment. Illinois National Guard, who la
under Indictment for th killing of Earl
Nelson at Kankakee, 111, last Au
gust. Tbe First regiment among oth
ers was on Its way to Springfield. EX.
te quell a race war. Klein, acting as a
guard of a baggage car ta which ammuni
tion was stored and under orders to allow
no unauthorised person to enter, stabbed
Nelson with a bayonet, when, aorarding to
his story to a court cf inquiry. Nelson at
temped to enter tbe car. Even then, Kiela
tated. he bad no intention of harming
Nelson. His Indictment, however, charges
that the "murder" was wilful and mali
cious. Klein applied to Judys Kavaaaugh
for release oa habeas oorpua, which th
court refused on the grounds that he has
not Jurisdiction.
Jadg Karanaugh held, however, upon
the facia aa presented by Klein, even fruit
ing that th killir.g was not accidental, but
in tbe execution of ordera of a superior
officer, no offense against tbe suite bad
been committed. Ia Cme of domestic dis
order In which tb National Guard, b Bald.
1 called upon ta act, tbe guardsman occu
pies exactly rb same relation to the pri
vate citizen as tb regular aoldier In time
of actual war.
The oldier repcnrrbPJtie and hie tra
monltlea ali follow Mm from th time he
falls Into En until be return home. Th
aolder must not uae hi power for op
pression, but In obeying ordera, even to
th extent of taking life, he ia not held t
a nice diecr-rnination or aa abaoiiitely cor
