NO PLACE FOR IN8ANE CRIM?
We print In another column an In?
teresting communication from Dr. R.
T. StyII, ilcfondlng tho action of the
Pavllnlc jury, on the ground that the
laws of the Stnlo inukc no provision
for proper disposal of the criminal In?
line. The conditions complained of
by Dr. Styll certainly should fie reme?
died nt the enrllest possible moment
and tho Dally Press will gladly Join
with him or any other forco lu an ef?
fort to havo tho Hext leglslnturo pass
tho necessary statutes.
The fnlluro or the legislature to pro
vld for proper disposal of the crimi?
nal Insane, however, does not give tho
juror carte blanche to disregard ills
oaUi and tp bring In a verdict not in
accord with thu law and the evidence.
The polut wo endeavored to make In
the editorial to "which Dr. Styll takes
exception was that members of Juries
frequently Ignoto both of those points
In the verdicts rendered.
We do not regard thu punishment
meted out lu accordance with the law
ae n specie of vengeance. It may be
taut the majority thiak of the matter
In that light, hut we do not believe
that those best grounded In the prln
olplos of law would for a moment en?
dorse that theory. Human life is not
tnke.ii because there Is a thirst for
blood on the part of organized society,
but because experience has shown that
dangerous criminals of homicidal ten?
dencies may be safely disposed of In
no other way.
If tho theory applied lo thu Pavllnlc
case Is to be put In force, why may
not a jury find a man guilty of larceny
wlio lias been ( barged .with murder,
even though the testimony may clearly
show that hu Is guilty as charged?
The facts In tho remarkable case
which gave rise to the presunt discus?
sion arc plain and unmistakable: If
Pavllnlc is Irresponsible ho certainly
does not deserve eighteen years In the
penitentiary. If ho is responsible, noth?
ing less thnn the denth penalty should
havo been inflicted.
The maudlin sentimentality of wo?
men who place a halo of glory around
the head of tho worst sort of crimi?
nals, and thu desire or jurymen to sldc
. step the Issues placed before them in
? clear-out case of duty has had more
t to do with bringing Judicial practices
into disrepute than any ollitr Inllu
?- ence now ut work. When there Is
compromise in cases where the facts
and tbe law are unmistakable, can one
: be surprised thut tho foundations of
- ; law, and order are threatened through
? the tendency tu make crime ngalnst
j society a matter for private veil

MR. BRYAN AND THE PRESI?
- Hon. \V. J. Bryan has written a let
. ter to Hon. James K. Jones, In which
it Is made plain that the Nebraska
map will once more lead his party ..
? the call comes to him with practical
While it is impossible to gay what
. contingencies may arise between now
and the time for the meeting of the
Democratic national convention, from
/ . present indications It would seem that
: Mr. Bryan Is the logical candidate.
. Cortalnly there is no available man
v'in the party bo widely popuia- or who
? ?88 such a firm grasp upon the ad?
miration and affection of Democrats
i - throughout the country. The elimina?
tion of the silver lBBiie, the one point
: : Updn. which the gold standard men
fought bim in 1866 and 1900 should
enable him to reunite the party.
Thus, upon the issues of the tariff and
"?- 1 ?
upon a promise to strike down unlvor
flul graft without fear or favor, the
Democrats would stand a bettor show
of winning than at any time since the
last Cleveland administration.
Against any Republican save Roose?

would have u fair chance of success.
The President Is Immensely popular
throughout the West and It Is doubt?
ful If any Democrat could swing thoBc
States Into lino If the President should
be the standard bearer of the Republi?
can party. If he should persist In his
refusal to accept another nomination.
It Is not unlikely that the West would
turn to Bryan ?h a man niot<j after the
pattern of that section than either
Root or Taft.

AS TO PAVLINIC JURY.
Dr. Styll Defends Verdict of Twelve
Good Men and True.
To the editor of the Dally Press.
Dear Sir: In consequence of your
editorial "The Juror and his Oath"
which appeared in your Issue of Hie
5th Instnnt, mid with your kind per?
mission, I would like to say n word In
defense of the Jury In the Pavllnlc
Tills verdict does honor to the Intel?
ligence, humanity, and splendid con
sorvnllsm of the twelve sturdy yeo?
men Who rendered It. 1 thank God wo
still have such manhood In Old VI ?
glnln, for II speaks volumes for the
siifety of the dour obi commonwealth.
It is very true the verdict cannot be
claimed to be according to the law
and the evidence, lint It was the only
tiling for the Jury to do under the
circumstances. The verdict is not the
proper target for the fire of criticism,
hut rather the insufficiency of our
State's laws concerning Ibis Important
subject. Did It ever occur to you that
there Is no provision whatever made
and provided iu our statutes for the
disposal and care of Insane perrons
who commit crime under strcrts of tr
rcslstable Imperative Impulses and
morbid desires while" under control of
unalterable systematized delusions?
Tlie nbsence of statutes pWjvldipig for
these conditions will always place a
Jury In nn undesirable and awkward
situation; they do not wish to hang an
Insane man, nor do they wish to jeop?
ardize the safety of the people by
turning free amongst them a danger?
ous lunatic with criminal propensities,
nor ure they willing that the criminal
slinll be sent to an asylum to lie re?
leased by an Irresponsible superintend?
ent at any time he may elect. Tills la
why Juries bring In such verdicts. And,
they are right.
To remedy this deplorable atale of
affairs, our lnws should be so amend?
ed that when an Individual charged
with crime shall tie found to be Insane
he shnll be sentenced to special wards
provided In our state hospitals for the
exclusive care of insane persons con?
victed of crime. Such persons should
be sentenced by the court to these
wards as criminal insane, there to bo
kept segregated from other Insane un?
til recovery is complete and they
should not bo discharged therefrom by
the Superintendent of any particular
hospital within which they may he in?
carcerated, hut a commission of dis?
charge should be created by law for
this purpose, which should lie compos?
ed of the Superintendents of each and
all of the Stute Hospitals, to which
should 1)0 added one competent alien?
ist not. connected with any of these
hospitals. The duty of this commission
should be to examine Into the mental
condition of the said sentenced Insane
person whenever he shall be reported
as.cured by the Superintendent of the
hospital in which ho sha-l be confined
and report to the court from which ho
was sentenced, whose duty It should
then he to discharge him.
Now. it is my opinion Mint, the jury
In the Pavllnlc case was unwilling
either to hang an Insane man. or re
loafe unon the community an cxceii
Ingly dangerous Insane person who
might repent his horrible crime with?
in the day of his discharge from cus?
He must Indeed be a savage degen?
erate who could thirst for the blood of
n poor unfortunate, Irresponsible. In?
sane fellow being, or p.n unsafe custo?
dian or public safety who would he
willing to turn looae upon an unwary
public so dangerous a criminal as the
victim of the horrible delusions and
nropensitles of that most dangerous
form of Insanity, Pnranoln, or Pro
uresslvo Systematized Delusional In?
Those poor deluded nersonS should
become the objects of our tenderest
and most solicitous care rnther than
of our fiercest hate, which lllfn their
own denlorsble insatiable Impulse can
be satisfied oulv by the sheddinn- of
human blood. Remember my fellow
countrymen, yotir desire for human
blood is ten thousand tlm"s worse
than Pavlinlc's: for yon cannot plead
his excuse at the bar of unerring jus?
I write this with the hope that the
nresa of our State will take-this mat?
ter up with our lawmakers, and hv l.~
no-?orfnl influence induce them to
amend our raws along this line. Very
Respectfully, R. t. STYLt,.
