It w us el.ilnidl, Willi gieal show of lei-
I son, Unit eiiormoiis frauds were committed
I at the I'ennslMinia Mate election, the Oc
tober pievlons lo the piesldeulhil elcclion.
' The greatest of these frauds were eonimlt
' led In I'h'dadclplil I. The object of these
Ir.uuN, If frauds there wcie, was to large
; ly enhanei' the republican majority, l'or
, a time the f.ict wn petsUlently denied, but
i finally, nil men came to believe therein.
! The linlh of Ihe mailer was that 11 corrupt
j ring mled thecilyof Philadelphia, as did a
i similar one New Yoik. Neither of them
eaied for polities, except so far as it might
, pcipetuato themselves in power and enrich
their favorite. The good, honest lepubll
cans of IVniKslt.inla were powcilcss he
roic them. They strove to nominate
honest men and have hone-t elections, hut
the ring was too much for them. It I'm mod

their work, wit t.i secure hoii'-M elections

it will f Ucceed In Ibis or nut leinalns to be
M-cii. One thing has already lesiilled. The
fact that Immense frauds have been coin
lliltted 1:1 the l'lrd.idelphl.i eleetlons lias
been demonstrated, and it M'enis strange
that such stupid blumlcieis should have
succeeded so long In imposing themselves
on I In city. Tlie law lequhcs tint tlie
Votes shall be counted eveiy hour, and
some of the statements of these counts are
published ill tlie Philadelphia l.alger. In
the nineteenth ward, the aggregate vote, it
says against the constitution, undei its
various manipulation, was reported as

many votes reported a weie counted for
by the r.Hurn judges on Tluti'day ! Tlie vote
reported for the constitution presents slmi
laily man clous phenomena." The explan
ation is that the managers became fright

and, theicforc, changed the lesults so as to
approximate to what an honest count
would I ave been. We do tint pioposo to

The i iirie-nt of e'onviclions in the "ring
trial"-lias been checked by the acquittal ol
A. Oakley Hall. The i haigo against him,
as stated by .fudge Daniels, was "for will
fully neglecting the pcifoiniance of an
official duly." That duty was to "audit"
claims against the city or ceainty of New
Veirk. There is no claim lli.it he actually
audited' Iho claims, iuthetiuo meaning
ot the word, or in Ihe meaning of the law,
hut the verdict of tlie juiy seems to have
turned upon Hie won! "willful." We do
not propose, now or ever, lo discuss the
verdict of a juiy or the decision of a
court except In so fur as it may affect pub
lic policy and the general wi'lfare of the
community. To this extent and no fur
tlie.', in our judgment, aie they proper
subjects of criticisms and comment. We
regret the vetdict on two accounts, first,
for the possibility we trust it will remain
simply a possllillity-tliat It may prove the
turning or the tide, and lesult in the ihs -
charge eif other and morii guilty pai ties i'on.

the ring. We need not spend nny time in
I'omment em this point and will, tlie-iefoie,
piss to tie' otlierc'Uislderatl.in. We under
stand it lo bo true, that verdicts of Juries
do not, In ordlnaiy eases, vMnhlHi piece

in, and control, either cae. If wo re
member the rule conectly, vetdict aro of
no weight, so far as the trial and decision
of oilier cause.! aie eoncenied, oxe ept when
other cases iii o dependent upon the bamo
stale of facts, and where substantially the
same parties an; involved. In some of
these cases where a court nnd jury have
pa'seil upon a given state of facts, and the
relations of nil the panics me btought out

It is technically called, m iii)iul!eata, a
matter determined. Wo may he mistaken
as to iho extiuit to which Iho doctrine U
carried, but wo believe thu principle to lie
correctly stated.
Although this case of Mayor Hall cannot
be strictly taken as a pi eeedent, yet there
is great danger Hint the matter dctciniiued
thereby may bu followed hereafter in siml
lar eases. If Ihe verdict of tlie jury i.s to
lio taken as a proper construction of the
word "willful," there will bo no trouble,
hereafter, in obtaining payment of fraudu
lent bills i in fact, thcro will he no neces
sity for auditing, Tlio statutes of New
Yen k required that certain persons should
"audit" certain hills, and lint, upon their
certificate, they should ho paid by the prop,
cr olllcer. As stated by Judge Daniels, It
was required that these claims should bo
"audited, examined and reported," and that
they "hould bo only paid after Ihey were
" inado the subject of examination, so as
" to ascertain that they weie falily and
" legally due." Thciervviisnopictenselhat
Mayor JIall examined these claims. U is
