The trial of John Peter Zfinser in 173r resulted in the establishing of it free press in America. It was the first trial in this country of a charge of libel against the government. Zrnser was one of America's pioneer i.ewspaper editors, and the first is sue of his periodical, called the "Sow York Weekly Journal," appeared on November 5, and he continued printing and publishing- it until the following January, when the Chief Justice, James de Lancey, charged him with huvins printed seditious libels. There was a bitter controversy waging between Governor Crosby ii ml the people of the Province of New York. The legislature and the council hud been hiought under the influence of the governor, and the higher courts of law were also so modeled as to be instruments in the hands of the government against the people. Tle only recourse of the people was in the press. The chief justice, at the intigation :1 the governor, endeavored in vain to prevail upon the grand jury to ' indict Zenger. The council then pro nounced four of Zengct's issues to be "false, scandalous, malicious and seditious libels." and ordered them to be burned by the common hang man. The order was read in the , court of quarter sessions, but the magistrates would not suffer it to be entered. The sheriff caused the rapers to be burned by his colored j servant. 1 I Zenger was then ai rested by or der of the eountil and thrown into i jail. Mis friends procured a writ of I habeas corpus, but the bail was placed so high th-il he could not pro cure it. While he was thus lying in j:.il the judges tried to get him in dicted, Voit without success. The at torney general then charged him by information for a misdemeanor in printing the libels. Two popular lcaileis, James Alexander and William Smith, undertook the defense 01 THE OSTRICH PLUME FOR EASTERN PRESENT Those at Bailee's Big Curio Store the Best In a very short time Easter will be here, and Easter presents will be in order. That heretofore has made a lively moment in the ostrich feather department of Ralke.'s Big Curio store. There is no gift more suitable or more to be appreciated for a wife, sister or some other fel low's sister than one of the Arizona ostrich plumes such as aie kept at the Big Curio Store. One of those plumes makes a rosy Easter gift that will last a lifetime and the giv er always will be kindly remembered. The ostrich plume is an article of adornment that will never go out of fashion, and just now they are being worn more than ever. The Arizona ostrich plumes are known all over the I'nited States by the advertisement and distribution that the Big Curio Store has been making of them for several years. They are sent into every state from Maine to California and have been shipped by the Big Curio store to England, Germany and France. The Arizona plume is pronounced by government experts to be. the handsomest and the best in the world. They are not only glossier, but more durable than the South African plume. In the purchase, of one of these plumes the giver of an Easter present can make no mis take.

"The Purchasing of Supplies" will be the chosen topic on which J. I). Loper, of the Phoenix city schools will speak. It is a subject near the ofiicial heart of every member of the Maricopa boards, since, according to Mr. Loper, future savings to the schools in large sums can be accom plished by the application of scien tific buying principles. A. J. Riggins, county superinten dent of schools, will speak on "The Transfer of Students From One County to Another," and will be followed by two others who will choose another phase of the subject. Mr. Riggins will uphold the state statute, while one of the later speak ers will take an opposite view of the question, seeking to prove that uni versal transfer should be allowed, i'nd another will uphold non-transfer in all times and under all conditions. Other subjects which will come before the trustees at the meeting will be, "Agriculture in Public In stitutions," Music and Drawing in the Rural Schools," "The School as a Social Center," and "The Employ ment of Teachers." In Maricopa county there are, all told, about 175 school trustees. Last year over fifty per cent, of the members of boards in the county were in attendance on the meetings. It is hoped that more will be in duced to be on hand for this year's meetings, and special attention will be called to the 173 at various times before the date for the meeting, in order that they will bear in mind that their attendance is necessary to the future of the schools in this val ley and countv. o 15c on every small one; one sack to a customer Tuesday only, regular price I1.S5 and 9fic sack.

San Francisco, CaL Zenger, but, taking exception to the jurisdiction of the court, they were summarily excluded from practicing in the court and their names were stricken from the roles of the at torneys. This hish-handed procedure fright ened other Xew York lawyers, but Zenker's friends had recourse to a remedy which proved effectual. They engaged the services of a Phil ailelphia lawyer, Andrew Hamilton who was a celebrated barrister, afoou' eighty years of age. The admirable way in which he handled the case and his success in having the prison er acquitted is responsible for th oft-quoted saying, "It takes a Phila delphia lawyer." When the trial came on, Zenger had been in prison many months. The first point to be judged wa' that he did print and publish the papers and the next that they wer libellous. The junior counsel for the defendant proposed to contest the first point, but Hamilton overrule him, and. acknowledging the printinr rod publication, boldly threw himseir or. the other point, and took th ground that he had printed and pub lished no more than every free-bom British subject had a right to prim and publish. ' Hamilton's was a masterly appeal He was frequently interrupted by th' attorney general, and the chief jus tice endeavored to cut him shor. taking the ground that the jury har" no other duty to perform than to find the facts of the printing an-' publishing, which Hamilton had ad mitted, and that it was for the court to adjudge the libel. I'pun the court's asserting this. Hamilton deliberately turned to the jury and addressed his argument t them, showing it was their right and privilege and duty, to place themselves between the court and the citizens, and to protect the lat ter against such a claim as the former. He proved that they were the judges of the law as well as of the fact, that the whole, case was in their hands, and that they ought not to relinquish any part of it to the court. In that argument, the sove reign power of the people, of whom the jury were the representatives, first came forth in complete manifes tation in .America, perhaps it might be said, in the world. The jury returned a verdict of "not guilty" in the very teeth of an au thoritative charge from the chief justice against the defendant. The decision of the jury was received with shouts' of applause. The judges threatened to imprison the promoters of such a disorderly proceeding, but the people were too much excited to hear the voice of authority. A son of Admiral Noiris rose and called for a renewal of the shouting, which was continued and could not be re pressed. Hamilton, who would re ceive no compensation for his ser vices, was borne in triumph from the courtroom. He was carried to a festive entertainment which was re peated by the city authorities before his ' return to Philadelphia. The common council presented him with the freedom of the city, the certifi cate of which was enclosed in a splendid gold box purchased by sub scription, and as ho stepped into a harge, on his departure from New York, there was a salute of artillery. Governor Morris asserted that Ham ilton's argument, and the result of the trial of Zenger, were "the gems of American freedom, the morning star of our liberty."
