Hence It was that, when once HHpecllIc act of alleged dishon stv was made public, the suspicion that had lieen aoouinuluting for years took tangible form and a volley of accusations wan precipitated that involved not only otllcials now in olll"e but some who had proceeded them. The purpose of this trial 1 to ascertain whether or not these suspicions have not been l'l fouuded. The chief desire is not to convict the men now charged. It, is rather to acquit them if the circum stances will justify it. It is not just to condemn them in advance, neither Is it just to ac(tiit them until they have shown that they deserve acquittal, not through any technicality of tin. law but y proofs of Innocence. It is maxim of the law. it is true, that every man is innocent until proven guilty, but in thee caes, while tlie law will probably technically prevail, the man who ex pects to simply cheat justice by relying upon the Inability of his accusers to prove their charges will not bent con servo his own ends. If any out of them fails to prove conclusively hi innocence he will be condemned. Perhaps he will ecape punishment from the courts, but there i a higher tribunal even hereon earth. It Is the voice of the people. There Is an expressed determination everywhere to demise the political atmosphere, and the accused olllcial who leaves room for suspicion on the completion of this trial Is doomed to be as thoroughly punished as if th art had found him guilty and inllictcd its severest penalty. ThU will be by far the most momentous and interesting case ever tried in tliu west, and hund reds of friends will earnestly pray that the accused may come s ifely and hon estly out of it with dean records. It will be remembered that during the Finyd-Tliuyor contest there was a great deal of political sentimental gush as to the acredues4 and inviolability of American citi.ciiship. Luckily this spasmodic ellusion of distate for and horror or the I'oroigni r is only skin deep, and investigation will show- that the Amei'lcnni.ed foreigner N not un worthy oftriisl. Of course America should be governed by Americans, but there i many a foreign-born person who iua, not have con formed to the perfunctory rules proscribed for ac quiring oitioiiship, who nourishes n his loyal heart a more profound and self-sncrlliring love for thu adopted country that is doing and promising so much for him, than exalts the moth es of many men whose quiilitlcu tioiisas Americans and citien are uuiiie-tioncd. Hight here In Lincoln we now have a councilman .serving his .second term, of whom it Is alleged that he has never boon naturalized. It Is .lames ()"Sheo of the First ward. In registering":! a voter Mr. O'Shoc has claimed that he became a citl.eii when his father became naturallel at Dos Moines, In., in M7(l, Mr. O'Shoc being at that time under litre It is now clii'mul. by parties who profess to have Investigated, that Mr. O'Shoo's father was not naturalled In Des Moines in lVTH, or at any other time Mr. O'Shoc is Mill a member of the council, and no one has been so bold as t i say that ho Is not a good American at heart. It is also assorted, but never made generally known, that Alexis Halter, formerly a councilman, did not acquire his eitluuship until af ter he had become a member of the council. Mr. Halter Is a Canadian, and only discovered after his election that he was not a naturalled Ainorl ceil cltien. Tliuro are doubtless hundreds of such cases every year lu the I'liited States. If American fit i A'lishlp is Mich .1 priceless technicality. Mops should bit taken to compel those who enjoy it to wear it Oil the outside and pi event others from wearing it any whore howe. or Iniioeontlv. Someone in authority appears to he quite libera., in giving away to huck sters and fakirs largo slices of the pub lic stieot. At nearly half of the prom inent corners fruit dealers have been pei'initt d 'o i ccupy strips of the walk four or Iho foot wide porinuiiontly, and structures have been erected thereon. Scores of storekeepers and hucksters tire daily permitted to display their goods on the sldowalks instead of in their whitlows.

It will be folly to even hope to rid the city of its thieves and lawless classes until some of the presiding magistrates ami otllcers temper their br (litis of justice with less of the Ingredient of mercy, which, when properly enter tained, is a divine attribute Local mag istrates are entirely too lenient. For instance, a few da.vs since two hack drivers wore arrest, 'd for driving a pasengor to tt lonel.v spot, bcatlughini iutoiusciisihillt, and then lohbinghim. The crime for which they were arrest ed was one of a series of the Mime kind that have beoncoiiiinitted. As soon as they wore arrested one of them, ad mitting that he was along anil wit nessed the robber;,, threw the blame upon the other, whereupon the olli.vr-r I allowed him to nut up S'l its security j for his appearance as a witness next Iduj.

Kacli of the cases referred to charged a fel ony and the prisoner should have been treated accortlluglj.
