1 "UV KrpAfoA,;THOi THOU CANST NOT TH3B? V* i I conformable to la\y^. : S ' ? .'. i * Associate JustUe:.#?0ihr.iiriwrote the opinion and th&'ientiro court con curred, the new trial be|ng granted on the grounds that Gossett was niii iglven a f;f ir trial by the special court. Justice Cotbran severely crit icises the statute under which spe cial courts are called, and cites' la . number of incidents to show that an accused has no showing under the present policy of special courts. The court also severely criticises the spirit of mobs, and says that where trials are held under condi tions similar to those obtaining at the Gossett case, it is a "judicial lynching." The Abbeville court was called to try the Gossetts alone. The opinion affects a number of other special courts held recently, and virtually says that these courts could not give a defendant a fair trial. Several trials by special courts, it is recalled, have resulted In elec trocutions, and "'Ping" Griffin ls now ' in the penitentiary under death sen tence by a verdict of a jury called together especially to try him, and the circumstances aro a good deal similar to tito Gossett case. No ap peal has been taken In the Griffin case, and "Feetio" 'Fogle has already been electrocuted by a special court verdict. Speaks of Mob Violence. Speaking of mob violence and the effect on tho public mind in trials like G?sset t's. and the section under which the court was called. Justice Cothrnn says: "We aro convinced that the proceduro provided for in this section is a bald concession to the spirit of mob law, and presents tho spectacle of the law, strong and mighty, bowing to tho despotism of, the mob, which bas boon declared lo be greater than the1 tyranny of :i despot, lt provides a miserable com promise with lynch law, enabling the * law io bargain with tile mob to stay Its hand and allow the court, under the form of law, to accomplish what is equally reprehensible-a judicial lynching. "It is notorious that such bargain ings have boen made. The angry mob has been appeased by tho prom ise of a quick special court to try the oifender undor circumstances that render his conviction Inevitable. "Thor? can be no compromise with the Spirit of lynching for any crime. Those who compose such a mob aro themselves without, the pale of law and commit a crime not only against the victim of their vengeance, but against tho majesty of ?he law.
