Illinois has done a very sensible thing
in providing that the trial of important
criminal cases shall not hereafter be com
mitted to non-reading, ignorant jurors.
Tho new jury law provides " that it shall
not be a cause of challenge that a juror has
read in the newspapers an account of the
commission of the crime with which the
prisoner is charged, if such juror shall
state on oath that ho believes he can render
an impartial verdict according to the law
and the evidence."
It is no reflection on Republican prin
ciples to say that the government is not
served by the most competent subordinates
which the country affords. Take the post
office as an example. There never was
the same amount of pilfering done in that
department as is now perpetrated. Every
mercnant mat you converse with, com
plains of loss through the mails, and even
money orders, which are supposed to be
the safest, are stolen and destroyed ; and
what is most strange in, when a mail rob
ber is arrested and convicted of his crime,
after Immense trouble on the part of the
postal authorities, be is either given the
lightest possible sentence or pardoned.
The work done for the government in our
navy yards is of a character to be worthless,
though its cost Is treble that of the best
work done by private yards on private ac
count. Our arsenals are mora depositories
where the public property is daily- decay
ing and thus we could run through the
catalogue, showing that there is a misman
agement in those affairs which demands
immediate revision and reform. Jlarrit
burj Stale Journal.
This may be no reflection on Republican
principles, but to most readors the above
article will seem to be a very severe re
flection upon the practices of those whose
duty it is to see that tho affairs of the
Nation are properly conducted.
Geo. Francis Train, Insane.
In the Train case, last week, the
court directed the jury to rendor a verdict
of not guilty, on the ground of insanity.
Train's counsel said two of the jurors say
that is not their verdict. The court repli
ed that the verdict is entered, and that part
of the case is disposed of. Dr. Cross tes
tified that this insanity continues, and Train
must be sent to the State lunatio asylum.
Mr. Train (excitedly), " I protest against
- the proceedings here. I have been five
months in jail without being granted a
trial." Then addressing Judge Davis, he
said, "Before leaving here I move your
impeachment, in the name of the people."
J udge Davis ordered him to sit down' and
an order was made out to send him to the
State lunatio asylum.
Judge Faucher has granted a writ of
fiaheui em-put returnable Thursday next, to
show case why Train should uot be releas
IW A woman who was involved In the
falling of the bridge at Dixon, Illinois,
gave a curious description of her expe
rience : "In the twinkling of an eye,"
she said, " There was a tremendous crash.
and we were all spilled out. In the midst of
it," the lady went on to say, " I went Into
the water with a thud. I went down with
tny mouth, opeu, screaming. I think I
must have struck bottom. From the time
I was spilled till I was dragged ashore
seemed to me three hours. My ' back hair'
is gone among the rest ; I shant advertise

A Cattle Drover Robbed of $1,000.
The Kansas City Times, of the 10th lust.,
says: There is no use in disguising the
fact that this city isr cursed with the pres
ence of a mob of confidence operators aud
robbers. Th'oy are not always here, nor,
Indeed, have they any continuous abiding
place, but their visits of late havo been so
frequent, and their deeds committed with
such Impunity, as to demand the most vigi
lant and active efforts of the detective and
patrol force. There is no disposition on
the part of any good citizen to cast unde
served blame upon tho police force, but its
efliciency must be proved by acts before
praise will be bestowed.
On yestorday morning one of the most
daring robberies ever attempted was ac
complished in that city, and the victim, an
experienced traveler, accustomed to be on
his guard against the perils that beset
moneyed travelers, but the sunning and
adroitness of the deed made it successful.
The following are the brief facts in the case:
On last Thursday Mr. D. W. Golf, a cattle
drover, of Oskalousa, Kansas, passed
through this city with a drove which he
took to St. Louis. lie disposed of his stock
in that market, and on Monday started
back, intending to go to Leavenworth.
Yesterday morning he arrived in this city,
with f 1,009 in a wallet in a pocket inside
of his vest, on the Missouri Pacific Rail
way. When the train was about pulling out
from the State Line station, Mr. GofF was
approached by an unknown party, who
asked him if he was going to Leavenworth.
Mr. Gofl answered in the affirmative, when
the man told him he had better go forward
in the next car, as the one he was iu would
be switched off. Supposing the mau to be
an attache of the road, Mr. Goff proceeded
to move into the next car. When he
reached the car platform he was surround
ed by four men, who began to crowd and
jostle him. Quickly divining their object
Mr. Gofl' attempted to shove them off, but
he was closely pressed, and during the
little scuttle his wallet was picked from his
pocket and Mr. Gofl then shoved from the
The train was by this time in motion,
but Mr. Golf was uot disposed to give up
so easily, and determined to regain the
car. As he attempted to step on the plat
form, three or four fists were thrust threat
eningly iu his face, and ho could not court
further danger by jumping on a moving
train, when men, probably armed, stood
ready to dash him off. Before assistance
could be obtained, the train was under full
speed, and was quickly out of recall.
The telegraph was called into hasty re
quisition and the train stopped at Wyan
dotte, but the robbers bad jumped off be
fore probably almost instantly after Mr.
GoiTs rude ejection.
A Church Accident.
Shamokin, Pa., May 22. During the
ceremonies of laying the corner stone of
the new Catholio church in this borough
this afternoon a portion of the temporary
flooring which had been erected for the ac
commodation of tho vast multitude assem
bled gave way and precipitated Into the
basement beneath a large number of per
sons. It is Impossible at this time to give
the names and number of the injured, but
it is supposed that six are seriously hurt.
Bishop Wood, of Philadelphia, and
Bishop O'Harra, of Scranton, who were
conducting the ceremonies at the time of
the accidont, assisted by about twenty
clergymen, were among those who went
down with the falling floor, but luckily es
caped any serious injury.
Some of the injured are pretty badly
hurt. Anthony Kelley, of Mahanoy
Plane, formerly freight conductor on the
Reading railroad, is so badly hurt that his
life is despaired of. One man had both
legs broken. A little boy and girl also had
their legs broken.
The Terre Haute Express says: One of
the strangest storm freaks ever know oc
curred in Sugar Creek township Thursday
evening about 0 o'clock, at the time of the
bail storm in that city. A tornado com
me need on John Harris's place, at Cherry
Grove, prostrating the trees in the grove,
and sweeping almost with the velocity of
lightning to Macksville, a distance of a
mile and a quarter, and ending finally In
the river bottom, three hundred yards this
side of Macksville.
Tne" track of the hurricane was only
about forty feet in width, but it swept
everything clean before it. Every tree In
its course was blown to the earth. In the
river bottom giant elms were snapped off
as If they had been brittle pipe stems.
Two stables were demolished in Macks
ville and the tornado struck the corners of
two houses, shattering them aud carrying
articles of bed clothing, etc., a great dis
tance. In the bottom, water was thrown
Into the air hundred feet, and altogether
the scene was appalling, as could well be
imagined. Fortunately no human being
was in the track of the tornado.

if he has any pride at all will bring suit for
breach of promise.
