A Louisville. Ky.. judge created qu a sensation a few days ago by addle ing the following remarks to He gra jury ,-it the opening of the term of court: If ib.- verdicts were ad-led up i murder cases and averaged w ii t bos.- who wer,- convicted o!' siea 1 in during the last year, since- 1 ha\ 1.n on the bench, ii would l?- foun thai those accused of murder es? caped with lighter punishment than those who have- taken property. This court is forc ed to the c.lusioii ihn! human life, therefor.-, on the aver? age is worth less than $2?. It does seem that human blood i.~ a ding Pa ib.- market. If a poor devil breaks a show window and steals a loaf of br.-ad he is sun- to g,.t ,(,,. full extent ..f the law. but a man may blow off tin- head of a woman oi a . pluck may kill some poor girl and go fr.r gel ..n' lightly. i t f < if course, this condition of affairs is to be regretted, but the reason for ii ,T. as plain as day. Ii is the logical and inevitable result of the morbid and sen? timental sympathy of silly girls and weak minded men for the criminal e.h.. is forced to pay the d.aih penalty. Not alone in Kentucky, Inn through ..in the entire country, this disregard of human life is apparent, and in nine cases inn of ten more sympathy i shown foi the condemned murdi-roi than is shown for the victim of Ins av? arice ,,r foul and ungodly passion.-. ..i for the h.-lph-ss wife and orphan-.I , hil dren who are left without protection as a result of his cruel and deliberate ma? lignity. Of course, there are occasions on which tlu. taking of a human life i.- ins tillable, but the law has wisely provided for th.-se exceptions. When a man b> bis own deliberate actions forfeits his right to live, according to tin- laws e,[ both Cod and man, there- should be no hesitation and no conscientious qualms against putting him beyond the ability to prey upon society.

Nelse Dingley is manifesting a re? markably high order .,f unselfishness in refraining from pointing .ml that it" result of the election was a practt al Vindication of the Dingley bill.
