A JUSTICE WHO WAS JUST.
In a famous murder case on down in New York City,
the justice presiding has thrown a bomb at the state's
attorney by declaring that the uncorroborated confession
of a murderer is not conclusive evidence against an ac
complice. The case in point is the murder of an old millionaire
ramed Rice, whose valet, Jones, the prosecution believes,
lulled him at the instigation of a lawyer named Patrick,
tnat the two might come into possession of the dead man's
fortune.
When arrested Jones made a confession which he has
f nee repudiated by making another in which he acknowl
c 3ges that he killed Rice at the instigation of the lawyer,
2'atrick.
Probably the last confession is true, but in the midst
rf It the justice interrupted to say that the confession was
not to be accepted as conclusive.
The country wants more such rulings. In criminal
cases it i6 probably too much to expect that a prosecutor
Rill ever cease from losmg a fine sense of justice in the
headlong effort to convict and win. The police are on the
Mde of prosecution. In its mind arrest is equivalent to
tonviotion, and the trial a cumbersome formality. If by a
f seating proems it can extract from the ia"tv uu.ler ar
7ett a confession, no matter how unreliable the party is,
jnii'Iirating otheis, and by an implied pru.aise to the jer
h d onfessing that he shall be treatol wnh lenienoy, its
up f satisfa'tion is full. The proseciror "Kith this aiwajs
doubtful point evidence soon throws himself into a mighty
passion to vm, to overcome the defense and emerge from
tne wreck of proof and rebuttal, triumphant. In a great
irany cases the matter of justice in his mind is lost
Mght of.
And when supplementing the work of the police, and
the oagernefcs for victory of the prosecutor, the court itself

It is too rauh to expect that the police system wju

CAUGHT OFF P OST BY A BURGLAR
"Caught off post" by the roundsman
has always been a serious matter for a
member of the metropolitan police force,
even Jn these days of demoralization; but
the news-reading public generally hears
Httloe jr nothing of tfie patrolman's side
of the st&ry, "and. he is lu&ky if his fine
in days' pay is small, says the New York
Evening Post. Occasionally, also, the
experience is complicated by other diffi
culties, and, of these, one of the oddest
was that which hapnened to Detecuve
Sergeant Evanhoe, In the early days of
his service, when h was "pounding the
pavement" in the lowest rank. This Is
his story:
'"In November, 1S79, I had an experi
ence that caused me to look in the glass
the next day to see If my hair had turn
ed gray. You see. it was this way: The
building which stands on .ae southwest
corner of Spring and Greene street had
just been put up, but wasn't done. I had
Spring street for a post. It was after
twelve o'clock at night, and I was taken
sick, but I did not want to report at the
stition house, because the weather was
quite seere, and being a new man, I did
not want them to think that I wanted to
dodge police duty. I stood under an awn
ing of a grocery store opposite, when
Officer Sheridan, who bad Green street
for a post, came along. I told him how
bad I felt, and he wanted me to report
sick, but I sj id 'No,' and he told me,
'Well, I have a key of a silk-hoose on
my post, and after you see the rounds
man and sergeant, you can go in and lay
down a little while. I corked it off there
many a time. The fellow that opens up in
the morning gave me the key, and they
have a nice lounge in the rear office. I
will keep a sharp lookout, and if any
thing turns np I'll tip you off.'
"I saw the sergeant and roundsman go
by, and then Sheridan took me te the
silk-house, just two or three doors be
low the new building. He let me in, and
then kept the key, saying that he would
come down and let me out in an hour,
because he would know when the coast
was Ue.tr. Sheridan being friendly with
all handd, they used to stand with him
of itself and fulfilling its obligations in the family of .ttZSSSS SUK
tions. When the Cuban problem has been finally disposed j time Nobody could have that post only
CUBA AND ANNEXATION.
While the United States government is waiting for the
acceptance of its terms by the Cuban constitutional con
vention, there is more or less discussion of the future of
tL-e new republic, and most of the opposition to '.he policy
pursued by the president seems to be disappearing.
General Fitzhugh Lee is quoted in an interview as hav
ing declared that, while the promise of the United States
shculd be kept, the American troops should not be with
drawn from the island until there is an assurance that
peace and good order will prevail there. He even inti
mates that the ability of the Cubans to govern themselves
is doubtful, and says that if the new government shall
prove a failure, Cuba will be forever confided to the con
trol of the United States. Newell Sanders, president of
the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce, who has made
several trips to Cuba, is of the opinion that annexation is
the destiny of Cuba, and he says that is what isdesired
by those who control the property interests in the island.
The Cubans will be given to understand, if they do not
understand the fact now, that the army of occupation will
remain unless tey come to the terms of this government,
and unless there is good reason to believe that the new re
public is to be a stable government, capable of taking care
of it will be admitted that the United States was right in
demanding the terms prescribed by the Piatt resolution.

MISERABLE MUSCOVY.
Even in the seclusion of his palace the Czar of all the
Russias is a target for irrepressible and implacable revolu
tionists, whose plots find assistants and command the last
sacrifice among men deemeu of undying fidelity to the im
perial throne. The empire is seething under a ferment of
revolution; arrests are made by the thousands, and bullet
proof armor is in brisk demand among the highest official
classes. Deep-seated distrust of tae people pervades all
ministerial circles, and the only answer of authority to the
widespread demand for a larger measure of liberty is a
tightening of the fetters already riveted upon the masses
of the Russian people. The wealth and splendor of the
court and nobles are matched only by the poverty and mis
ery of the proletariat The civilized world does not see,
hear nor know a tithe of the drastic demands of power and
the sullen endurance of the resisting people. Russia's sys
tem of government has become as antiquated as her cal
endar and as sensitive to attack as though installed by a
foreign invader.
Under such copditions even a long-range war with Japan
over Manchuria and Korea might be accepted by the Czar
and his ministers as an alternative to internecine anarchy.

DE WET AND MANCHURIA.
One of our contemporaries remarks that General DeWet
has saved Manchuria to Russia. This is undoubtedly the
truth of the matter. It is not at all likely tnat Great Brit
ain would have permitted Russia to force an unsatisfactory
treaty upon the Chinese had it not been for the heavy work
on hand in the Transvaal. The Russians are the shrewdest
and most unscrupulous diplomats in the world. They are
fully aware of Great Britain's difficulties and they now re
ply to remonstrances against-the occupation of Manchuria
that they will restore order and then hand the country over
to the Chinese authorities. Of course this statement is a
falsehood in every implication and declaration it contains
regarding the future policy of Russia in respect to Man
churia. If Manchuria is once effectually occupied the Rus
sians will not relinquish theip hold upon it. They never
abandon an inch of territory they have once formally re
duced to possession and it may be taken for gi anted that
they will not begin in the case of Manchuria, a province
they have ueen coveting for many years and which thej
have long Intended to grab upon one pretext or another.
TOLSTOI'S REPORTED BANISHMENT.
If the report of Count Tolstoi's banishment from Russia
should prove true it would scarcely cause surprise. From
the viewpoint of the Russian bureaucracy the great author
has merited deportation or worse punishment one hundred
times over by his scathing denunciations of the existing
social system in numberless writings. Tolstoi's novels and
other books published during his later years constitute a
series of socio-political tracts in which church and state
are fearlessly and pitilessly held up to execration. That
the protecting favor of the v,zars (both Alexander and
Nicholas is no longer potent to shield him was nuicated Dy
the recent excommunication, of Tolstoi at the behest of the
procurator of the holy synod. His banishment from the
state would be the logical sequence of his expulsion from
the churcu.
Nothing that a spiteful bureaucracy could do, however,
would proent the germination of the seed sown .y Tolstoi,
whose influence m the coming emancipation of Russia will
be comparable to that exerted by Rousseau and Voltaire
upon the men oi the revolutionary era m France in the
Eighteenth century.

"I marched in, for there was plentj- of
light from a gas-jet in the rear Sure
tnousrh, there was the lounge. I took off
cny club and belt and laid my revolver
a'ongside of the club and belt on the
chair The safes were in the same room
where I lay. I don't know how long I
lav there before I fell off in a doze. Then
I wake up, and there was a man stand
ing in the door, reaching for my revohcr.
I lay still, mighty scared. How long he
was there before he made up his mind
to take the revolver, I don't know; but as
soon as he got It he started off. I lay
there, unabie to move, and finally I heard
footsteps runing up the stairs. I thought
0 e trj thing; I kuew if I gave chase I
would be 'it;' for I had no gun. I could
not get out in the street, because I had
no key. If I raised an alarm, I could not
explain my presence there, but I was
there all right, and to stay.
"Sheridan, being kind to me, gave me
an hour and a half instead of an hour,
but at that time I wished he hadn't. His
key turning In the lock was the most wel
come noise I eer heard. You talk about
the sigh of relief that the jail-bird draws
after doing ten-spot. That was not deuce
high compared with my feelings. But
1 said nothing to Sheridan. Ihad good
reason to believe that the man who took
my revolver (and me looking at him) was
a burglar, and he was ln a silk house
whore my friend and brother officer had
the key. How to inform him of It with
out telling him the whole story that kept
me sweating. Finally I made up my mind
and walked back to Greene street and
rapped. Sheridan came Uown, and I told
him that while I was standing on the cor
ner of Wooster and Spring streets - uad
seen a man who must have gone in that
new building.
"We rapped for several other officers
and went through tho building to the
roof, then on to the adjoining roofs, and
when we got to the silk house we found
an aperture cut through the roof. The
thieves were too 'wise' to try the scut
tle, because they figured that It would be
wired. They had made a 'get-away' in
the building and used it. The case -was
reported by Sheridan and the firm made
him a present of silk enough to make a
K-w silk dresses for his wife.
"Now, there is something to be learned
from this. One thing is that if you hear
a burglar in the house, and you can find
voice, call to him from where you lay
to 'kindly shut the front door as he goes
out ' If ou jump up in your excitement
ou will ue a dead man. Of course, If It

v orth while to take a chance."
