Holmes County Republican.
H. 6. TTMte, T. B. Cunningham. xditou axd pmoriT. MnxiMBDKO, O., : : Keb. 13, 1873. TWENTY-SECOND OF FEBRUARY. -' The Republicans of Wayne coun ty are making elaborate prepara tions for the celebration at Wooster of Washington's birthday. They intend to throw the Democratic af fair of the 8th of January in the shade.' Gens. John A. Logan and W. H. Gibson have been invited to be present. CHANGED FOR THE BETTER. It is stated that there is not a reg ular drunkard in Congress at this time. Matters hare changed very much for the better within a few years. Senator Wilson in a recent speech said there is far less drink ing in Washington now than" there was eighteen years ago. This is an encouraging state of the case. A POWERFUL ROAD. The wonderful capacity and pow er of the Pennsylvania railroad, un der its present management, may be inferred from the remark of a cor respondent in the Germ an town "Telegraph," who says that before the Centennial celebration can take place we shall have trains running straight through from the city of Mexico to Philadelphia, and all the way in the interest 'of the Pennsyl vania railroad. FRAUD, SURE. Pinchback, before the Congres sional Committee on Louisiana troubles, told a story which is bound to live in the records of wit and hu mor. A colored man, who was a candidate for local office, being ap prised of the fact that the ballot- box of his district, when opened af ter the late election, contained no vote for him, rolled his eyes in won der, and then indignantly exclaimed that he couldn't see how that was there must have been fraud surely for 'fore God he had voted for him self! TROUBLE AHEAD. There is trouble ahead in Wes tern Union stock. There has been trouble for several days, and judi cious men who had any future en gagements to deliver shares of that company, have ere this got under cover. Jay Gould is said to be short about 30,000 shares,and Smith, Vanderbilt and other victims of the Northwestern corner, are preparing to give the ex-Erie giant a squeeze. THE FRANKING ABUSE. The following anecdote,related by the Washington correspondent of of the New York Times, shows the necessity that existed for abolishing the franking abuse. "There has late ly been deposited in the Dead Let ter Office what will no doubt be for many ages preserved as a relic of the franking privilege. It is a box containing an old rusty appleparing machine, weighing four or five pounds, which started somewhere in Alabama for the great Northwest, and got as far as Chicago before it was arrested for a vagrant fraud. It seems that some one had taken the envelope from a campaign document sent from here last summer, in pack ages already franked, but not ad dressed as thousands were sent out by the congressional committee,and had pasted it on the box containing the paring maching, addressed it, and sent it flying through the mails. The name thus appropriated was Piatt of Virginia. GREELEYS WILL. In the Greeley-will case, before the contest in favor of the death-bed will of Mr. Greeley was withdrawn by his eldest daughter, Mr. H. M. Williams of the counsel for the ex ecutors of the earlier will, that of 1871 made the following statement, which confirms all that ha 3 been said, and hints at a great deal more as to the last will being the result of a conspiracy. He says. "The contestants of the will of 1872 have proof of its fraud,and on ly wanted an opportunity to call it. J. he developments would be as tounding. They would show that he who had been the victim of every conspiracy in his lifetime, was a vic tim of the worst of all conspiracies at his death, ihis pretended will was the child of conspiracy, execut ed at a moment when the chamber of death should have been sacred from the presence of the men who want to execute that will. I charac terize that as a desecration of." Mr. Williams did not however ex plain his inueadoes. A CASE FOR PHRENOLOGISTS. Phrenologists now have an op portunity to locate beyond doubt the position memory holds in the convo lutions of the brain. A man held in Elmira, N. Y., struck his head against a beam three years ago was rendered insensible. He rapidly re covered, prospered in busines, and enjoyed perfect health until a few days ago, when he experienced acute pains in his head. These soon passed away, he regained his physi cal health, but his memory from the time he struck his head against the beam to the present is a blank. He remembers distinctly, all that transpired up to the accident but is puzzled to account for his two children born since that time. He addresses his busi ness partner as the schoolmas ter, which position he held previous to the accident. The case isa curious one, and unaccountable to medical experts. A CASE FOR PHRENOLOGISTS. IMPUDENCE EXTRA ORDINARY. For unique impudence and cool disregard of consequences,commend us to a Detroit youth. He languid ly argued with a woman at her street door, to which he had summoned her, concerning the prospect of the people in the bouse moving that af ternoon, and when the woman show ed signs of becoming demonstra tive, blandly offered to bet her ' $2 that they would because the roof of the hous was in a blaze. - THE CONVICTION OF STOKES. So frequent have been the escapes of notorious violators of the laws that the conviction of Stokes has taken the public somewhat by sur prise. That there was no reasona ble doubts about the murderous in tent of Stokes, was generally con ceeded, and yet his acquital was nevertheless anticipated. The fact is, our courts, the administration of public justice, and the machinery of the law itself have been ' more on trial of late than the prisoners at the bar. The public has begwn to ask the question, "what is the use of courts of justice, and the ex pensive machinery of the law, if they only aid in the escape of noto rious malefactors?' It was high time that the supremacy of the law shall be asserted, so that the mass of men should not regard it as piece of jugglery and treat it with contempt. It is to be hoped that the example recently set in the Stokes case, and in the several con rictions at the Capitol will be fol lowed throughout the land, because, otherwise, acts of violence will so increase that life in the United States will be less secure than among the most barbarous peoples. DEATH OF EX-GOVERNOR GEARY. Another of the heroes of the war Las passed away. Ex -Governor John W. Geary, a gallant soldier of Pennsylvania, fell suddenly dead in the midst of his family, at Harris- hiiro-h. on Saturdav mornins. As c ' - - already said, he was a good soldier, hut he fell short of sreatness as a Governor. His abilities were fair, but no more, and his personal van ity sometimes marred his success as man among men'. He died at the acre of fifty four, havinsr been in public life since 1840. The funeral was announced to take place on -Thursday morning from the First Presbyterian Church on Market Square, Harrisburgh. On Wednesday the remains lay in state at the capital, the obsequies being under the supervision of the State authorities and in the imme diate charge of Knights Templars. THE LOUISIANA ELECTION. Without pretending to know in advance of the investigation of the courts, what the result of the vote in the late election in Louisiana has been,one fact must not be lost sight of. The cencus of 1872 shows that the colored and white populations were very nearly equally balanced, and as a large number of the whites about eighty thousand, are of for eign birth, a number of them were certainly not naturalized so as to be qualified to vote. If, then, the col ored and white vote was equal, no evidence has appeared that any con siderable number of colored men vo ted the Greeley electoral ticket ;and as at least twelve thousand white votes were cast for the Republican ticket.it is quite clear that the Dem ocratic majority, which was anounc- ed by Warmouth's self-constituted board of canvassers, was tainted with fraud. If the real vote can not be ascertained, we hope Con gress will order a special election for members of the next Congress, and have said election superin- teded by United States officials. INDEBTED TO UNCLE SAM. At the clse of the war the Unit ed States owned a large amount of railway material and rolling-stock used on the roads . throughout the South. This stock was sold at low price, and the following-named railroad companies are still indebt ed to the Government for the mater ial purchased: Washington and Ohio; Alabama and Chattanooga; Edgefield and Kentucky: Indianola.Knoxville and Kentucky; McMinneville and Man Chester ;Mississippi;Gainesville acd Tuscaloosa; Mobile and Ohio: Mis sissippi and Tennessee; Memphis, Clarksville and Louisville; Memphis and Little Rock; Nashville and Northwestern; Nashville and Deca tur; Pacific Railroad of Missouri; Selma, Rome and Dalton. The Government witholds pay ment of all mail and other Govern ment transportation dues to these companies and applies the amount toward the extinguishment of their debts. This is in accordance the terms of purchase. with A CHINES TRICK. There were two seats in a car turn ed so as to face each other. One was occupied by a lady and the oth er by a Chinaman. Evidently the lady did not relish the presence of the Chinaman. She explained to him that she wanted to take the cushions and their frames and place them lengthways across from seat to seat. John said "all rightec, and got out in the aisle while she proceeded to lie down on the bed thus provised, with her head rest ing upon her valise. She supposed the Chinaman would take ti e hint that she wanted to rest in the space usually ocupied by four persons. But John at once proceeded to crawl in and stretch himself by her side, with his head on a valise of his own. lhe Chinese are an imitative race, and like to do as others do, you know. The lady as soon as she dis covered that she had a bedfellow, got up a little wildly and started for the next car, to the infinite amuse ment of the passengers who had been watching the little scene with some interest. John took no notice of the fun he had created, but went to sleep with the whole bed to himself. The Seth Thomas Clock Company has just sent to Mansfield, Ohio, a clock six feet high, six feet wide and four feet deep, costing If 2,500. The pendulum is fourteen feet long, and the pendulum ball weighs 300 pounds. The weights weigh over 1,000 pounds each, The works are to be set in the lower story of the building, while the hands and dial are placed in a high tower. The gas that illuminates the dial will be turned on and off by the motions or the clock.' Blue snow has fallen in Kentucky Late suppers produce heart disease. MEETING OF THE BAR. On Friday evening ast, the members of the Bar, of Millers burg, held a meeting at which reminiscences of the past were talked over. Below we give the remarks of Hon. C. F. Voorhes, of Millersburg, and Judge Wel ker, of Wooster, who has been in town several days: MR. VOORHES' REMARKS. 'Mb. PsEsnExT axd suthkbx- of the Bab: We have assembled this occasion with a view to social enjoyment, and to retrospect a few years of the history of our profes sion in this county. W nether or not the bar of our county have claims upon the world for ordinary or extraordinary legal ability is not a question for this occasion. - But it is certainly the unanimous opin ion of our bar, that patriotism and professional pride can hope for no more than that the rising lawyers of to-day may sustain and transmit to worthy successors, the great fame derived to their profession, trom the highest sources, and through the purest channels, furnished by those who with great credit, have run their course, and covered with lau rels, retired from the forum. On the 19th day of March, 1842, your humble speaker, for the first time beheld the town of Millersburg. then a small village of about eight hundred inhabitants. At that time the various employments and enter prises of the community had its rep resentative men, all inspired with the hopes and actuated by the man y and conflicting motives which gives lire and impetus to the civilization of the world. And I am glad to say, Mr. President, that at that time our profession was well represented. both in number and ability. Our bar at that time enrolled.as its mem bers the names of D. P. Leadbetter, James Cain, Moses Hoagland, Wil liam is. ranneyhilLWilliam R. Sapp, and Martin Welker, all gentlemen or energy and well qualified to ren der good service to those who need ed legal advice and assistance. In those days our courts were attended by attorneys from, 'other counties, men or learning" and great ability in the profession, among whom we name Avery, Cox ' and Dean, Wooster; Harris, of Canton, and pangler, or Coshocton. Mr. Pres ident, yon and I have witnessed these distinguished gentlemen of the bar, and with pride do we claim that the masterly manner of a Hoagland. the brilliant eloquence of a Tanney hill, and the tact and shrewdness of a Sapp, with papers moulded by Welker, was adequate to the sever est emergency, and never failed comparison with those whom they had to meet at the bar, and if they were not superior to, they were at least tus equals or men whose repu tation for legal lore was national and profound. Mr. President, you and I have no reasons to be ashamed of the men whom I have named as the bar of the earlier day. In their shadow and in silence have we sat, day af ter day, to witness their conflicts in court and thereby were instructed and strengthened for the many da ties since devolved upon us. V ery shortly alter my first intro duction to the town, there was reinforcement added to the ranks of the bar. Amongst whom, and per haps the - nrst ot the number was George W. Everett, the honorable gentleman now presiding at- this meeting. Then came T. S. Gilbert, A. L. Curtis, William Given, your speaker, (. A. Uuriey,-Jobn Huston Lhomas Armor, D. M. McKinley and G. N. Elliott, largely increasing the number. All were inspired with an ambition usually manifest in the profession, especially when necessi ty and poverty is the nearest mend at hand. For several years the gentlemen above named constituted the Mil lersburg bar. We had our courts presided over by judges of great legal learning and ability. The docket containing more cases than we have had in later years. Cases in tricacics and subtleties deeply laid in the law, were daily submitted to the members or the bar, and receiv ing Bush attention as promptly brought them, with the proper is sues in the law, before the courts and juries for solution and trial. Ana air. rresiaent, you and i as witnesses - have no cause to be ashamed of the able and efficient manner iu which our eider brethren presented and tried the questions then arising, both before the court and jury. Although by reason of our want of experience and knowl edge adequate to the full protection of a client in court, we were com pelled to sit as silent spectators, yet we were happy in beholding at this bar able and efficient gentlemen whose knowledge and eloquence. tact and energy was ample for the assistance of the court, and the pro tection ot the client, in all the du ties, and conflicts of the forum. Since the additions which have al ready been mentioned, we have had from time to time, other recruits to our ranks, which have been depicted by calls to other fields of labor and to that bourn from whence no travel ler returns. - Amongst these 1 may name John it. ilarcrolt, Josiah lin en, R. K. Enos, his honor Wm. Reed, Lyman R. Critchfield, D. S. Clil, J. W. Voorhes, X- R. Hoagland, J. A. Estill, J. T. Maxwell, M. A. Hoag land, W. Stilwell, D. Ewing, E. J. Duer and R. W. Tauneyhill, and perhaps a few others whose names do not readily occur to your speak er. come of these gentlemen, Mr. President, have already made for themselves a name to be envied for their legal learning and brilliant elo quence. The judiciary, the legusla tive, and the State have each been benefitted by their ability and learn ing. I am happy-to say, Mr. Pres ident amongst these young men there is evidence of a fine future, if they but improve what they have, as well as some who have just gone be fore. And I have no doubt but these younger of the profession will be able to report more at the end of the next thirty years than we can at the close of the last thirty, if they shall only ordinarily eliminate the ennobling and advancing pow ers of the law. vouchsafed to any people who will heed its precepts and practice its mandates. Among the many fine definitions or law, found in the writings of em inent jurists, I read the learned Blackstonc, as saying "The law is a science which employs in its theory the noblest faculties of the soul and exerts in its practice the cardinal virtues of the heart, a science which is universal in its use and extent, accomodated to each Individual, yet comprehending the whole commu nity. Mr. Jf resident, when we hrst met at the bar, over thirty years ago. to exempliry, in our feeble manner, the spirit and the power of the law, as indicated in the defini tion just stated, we were before dif ferent judges, met by different op posing counsel, before jurors of oth er names and supported and listen ed to by different audiences. ' By this let us be reminded, even at this festive board, that in life, as in our profession, the second trial is always before a higher court. The suitor who would be relieved of an error in his case mast seek for a power higher than the one in which he lost his right. Bat a few years have been added to 'our complement, since we first met as attorneys at the bar, yet in that time, short as it ap pears, judges, juries, witnesses and the spectators, who so shortly since composed a trial and its surround ings of interest and excitement, in the old court-room! on the square, have all disappeared. You and I Mr. President, appear to have been passed in the race and struggle to reach the other side, and we are now leisurely following the advance or our comrades who are but a few pa ces before. But a few days have elapsed since the presence of Cain. Taggart, Gil bert, Given, Tannyhill, Hoagland and Spangler, was as familiar to us as those with whom we are to night assembled. With them we have made our claims, before honorable Dean, Parker, Cox and Given, with briefs well taken from Vinnus, Voet, Coke, Blackstone, Chitty and Kent. But they have now all gone to courts where to hold such briefs will be, to be briefless, and where the judges of this life must yield the ermine to a judge, whose judgment will be without error, and founded in jus tice, and be beyond all review. Mr. President, I have made the foregoing remarks, knowing that the ardor of youth might bring against it the criticism, that it is foreign to the occasion of a bar supper, where festive mirth elicited from the rem iniscences of the bar would natur ally be expected. But, sir, my age and yours, I think a sufficient apol ogy for looking at our meeting to night, in the light of a retrospect life, reminding ns that we too shall shortly be again numbered with those with whom we stood in the past, in higher courts than we have been in life. " JUDGE WELKER'S REMARKS. ' Mb. President: The occasion, as well as the remarks of Mr. Voor hes, suggests to me busy memories of the past of the Millersburg Bar. The senior at the Bar of all now present, the many events, the active straggles, and ths bitter contests of a third or a century or protessionai life now come upon me. Over thirty-six years ago, on the same day, yoa and I came to this place to start on life's battle. Alike poor, and without friends to help us, we have marked our own career, what that has been and is, and what we have accomplished is not for us to say. Suffice it that we had hard work, as my young brethren around me will find they will have to win success in their future efforts. Many of our old associates of the Bar are now gone. Willyan, Scott, Hoagland, Tanneyhill, Cain, Given, Gilbert, Taggart, Leadbetter, Mc- Culloch and McKinley haye passed to that "higher court" where we must all one day appear. In looking over the records of the members of the Holmes County Bar I venture to say that no bar of the State, in comparison to its members, has furnished so many lawyers, who have occupied places of trust and responsibilities in the government. Let me present that honrable record. It has furnished one Lieut Gover nor of the state, and one nominee for the same place who was not elec ted; one Attorney General of the State, and one nominee for the same office; five members of Congress,and two nominees who failed to be elec ted; four common Pleas Judges, and four nominees who failed of an election; three State Senators, and one nominee for the same office; six members of the House of Represen tatives; one member of the last Con stitutional Convention; seven Pro bate Judges, and two nominees for same office; one Professor who has won the titles of A. M. M. D and L. L. D.; one Deputy Commissioner of the U. S. Internal Revenue Depart ment; one Presidential elector; one District Attorney in Iowa; four clerks of Common Pleas, and one County Commissioner; and, in the military line, have furnished three Brig. Generals, four colonels, two majors, and several captains. l need not say to you that l am proud of that record. It demon strates that lawyers are trustworthy, and valuable as public officers, and posess, as they deserve, the conn dence of the people. Xhese re-unions ot the liar are pleasant as well as profitable. Here, around the restive board, old mem ories are revived, and more intimate and friendly relation cultivated. As a class lawyers are remarkable for good fellowship, and readiness to relieve and aid each other. In all benevolent 'enterprises ' and public improvements, they are foremost, and do their full duty. Mr. President, we have among us this evening, the only surviving member or the hrst court held , in this county (Dr. Enos), from whom we no doubt will hear. In the per son of your speaker you have the senior surviving Common Pleas Judge of this District. All my pre aecessors nave gone to render an account of their stewardship. Allow me now to abuse the privileges of this judicial seniority, in a few gen eral reflections in the review of the past. V e have lived, Mr. President, in au eventrul period of the world 8 history. During our professional lite great changes have been accom plished in the law. In our State the ommon law practice has been abol ished : John Doc and Richard Roe stricken from the docket and the code practice instituted; our law of evidence greatly changed, and our general statutes improved and sim- plihed. lhe rights of married wo men have been enlarged so as to meet the civilization ol the age. hen we were students that class had scarcely "any rights which t white man was bound to respect, jnow they possess about the same rights of person and property as mau. Within your lifetime and mine our common school system has been created, and is now so perfect that all the children of the State, rich and poor alike, are furnished at pub lic expense with a good education. Within that time steam was first ap plied to purpose of navigation and machinery; the Daguereotype, Pho tographs, etc.; short-hand writing invented; the telegraph, utilizing one oi tne elements or nature to such perfection, enabling us to talk across continents and seas by light ing. Fifty years ago, Ohio had no railroads, now we. have four thous and miles within her border. Then there were but a few short lines of railroad in the world, now we have forty thousand miles in the United States. The palace car has taken a ty od the place of the lumbering stage-coach. Within that time Texas, California and Alaska have been added to our territory and the Great West opened up to settle ment. The Pacific has been connected with the Atlantic by iron bands, and a trip can now be made across the conti nent, from ocean to ocean, without a change of cars, and about as pleasantly as to sit in your parlor. Gold and' sil ver have been discovered in our coun try and now our enterprising people dig from the earth 130 millions of gold and silver per year. .aJ-V-. In the improvements of commerce, manufactories, invention of labor sav ing machinery, multiplication of books and newspapers, the world has made in that line great strides In the pathway of nrosri-ess. In our day the flail,' and the sheet for turesning and cleaning grain nave giv en place to the horse and steam power Thresher and cleaner, the sickle, the scythe and the cradle to the reaper aud mower, and in a thousand ways has in genuity relieved labor of its hard toil by useful invention. But,' Mr. President, I must not pur sue these reflections. Allow me in con clusion to congratulate you aud the bar upon this pleasant occasion, and to hope there may be more Bar Suppers here, at which we shall all be present. To our yoiine brethren allow me to say that soon you will be called to the front, aud compelled to take the respoii ibilties of the profession. Although business and reputation may seem to come slowly, don't give up heart or hope, but work on, aud by your integ rity and fidelity win as you will deserve the confidence of the public, and your success is certain. True the profession may seem to be crowded, but remember the valleys and low grounds are always crowded," but when you climb to the mountain top of the profession room enough will be found.

Grant brought back from Europe a bit of Imperial gossip, . We were flattering our selves that the Grand Duke was sent to the United States for the pur pose of studying our institutions, and the characters, manners, and so forth of our people. It was the first time, we were assured that the son of a Czar had been sent to a republic. ' This turns out, however, according to Fred., that this is all a delusion. The Prince Imperial had become enamored of a lady not of the blood 'royal by any manner of means, and wished to marry her. This did not meet the approval of the Imperial family, and so to get clear of the mesalliance the young man was sent abroad. But love laughs at locksmiths (when he has a latch-key ), and the young girl, fol lowed her imperial love as far as London, the two were united, on the sly, in the holy bonds.' . This com ing to the ears of the imperial fam ily resulted in a banishment that will probably last his life, and the young gentlemen will go traveling up and down the earth like the Wandering Jew for a long time. A COAL MINE ON FIRE. Three miles south of Pinkney- vi lie, 111., one or the coal measures (seven feet thick)which ci ops out at the foot of a bluff, caught fire some six weeks ago when the woods were burning off, and continued to burn under the ground three or four weeks, when several of the citizens, getting dissatisfied with the burnin of their coal with so little profit them, turned a branch creek iq upon the nre and put it out. it seems that the fire had made considerable headway under lhe'ground,creatin so intense a heat as to warm the surface of the earth through a depth of several feet, burning the clay lm mediately above the coal measure as hard as a brick. Had the fire not been put out, it is questionable how long it might have continued to burn as the theory first indulged that would smother out for wast of ai was not sustained by the facts the case. St. Louis Globe. WARNING TO UMBRELLA CARRIERS. The man who walks the street carrying an umbrella under his arm was at the corner ot fourth and Vine streets this morning. He stopped suddenly to speak with friend, and a man behind him near ly broke the point of the umbrella off by running his eye against it The man swore and the chap with the umbrella wheeled suddenly, tear ing off a young lady s back hair. He turned to apologize, and jabbed the point of the umbrella in a tall policeman's stomach. Policeman gave it a jerk, and the umbrella point tore off a portion of a small boy's ear, aud immediately after carried the starboard corner of man's mouth up into a man's front hair. Stepping back in dismay what he had done, he rammed the point of the umbrella down a by stanoer s inroat, and at the same time he fastened the hooked handle (the probabilities are that the han die was not only hooked, but the entire umbrella was hooked ) into colored citizen's wool.J In his efforts to get his umbrella lose, the unfor tunate owner of it upset a fruit and candy stand, and plunged headfore most into one of Suire s plate glass windows, in the excitement and confusion that ensued, the umbrella was put in a hack and driven to the hospital, and the man was taken to an umbrella store to undergo re pairs.

Brown, at Eighth and Tasker streets.PhiIadel- phia, refused to resume work after the dinner hour on Monday. They marched in a body to the other man ufactory of the firm, at Moore street and Jsloyamensins avenue,expectinr the employees there to join in the strike, but it seems there was evi dently a misunderstanding. The operatives say that the employers. nave introduced finer work, which yields a higher profit in the market, ana it takes longer to make it up than the work which the employees uave Decn used to doing, l he dif ference appears to be that making the finer work, at the same rate of wages allowed for the coarser fabric would be at a loss of one and a hall' days in each week to each person employed, as it takes six days to make up the same quantity of fine work which required only four and half davs on the coarser materi al. There seems to be a great difficul in getting twelve men together in New York who are sufficiently hon est or intelligent to agree upon a verdict in any case, no matter how plain the evidence put before them may have been. It has been sug gested that, perhaps it would be a good thiug to try the German meth oi getting a verdict. Jn that country when the jury are divided, six to six in their opinions, the prisoner is acquitted. A vote of eight to four tho prisoner is con- icted. Milk is the best diet for children. New York has 100 female doctors. fur GOV. DIX AND MURDERERS. The Sight Way to View the Matter. Gov. Dix, in refusing to pardon a murderer named Gaffuey, for killing one Patrick Fahey, makes a state ment of his views which ought to receive the widest publicity. He says: ' "On a critical examination of the case, I find no reason to inter pose the Executive authority of the State to shield him from the punish ment awarded by the law. The jury after a protracted deliberation up on the testimony, found him guilty of murder in the first degree, the Court of Appeals, on a review ot the record of his trial discovered no er ror of law in the proceeding of the verdict, and he has had in all the steps taken for his defeuse.the bene fit of able and devoted counsel. A large number of the citizens of Buffalo,including supervisors mem bers of the Common Council and the jurors, have petitioned me to commute his sentence to imprison cnt for life. While participating in the sympa thy felt by his fellow-townsmen lor the yonng family of the condemned criminal, I cannot forget that our sympathy is equally due to the friends of the victim, who was hur ried without a moment's warning in to eternity, and to the orderly mem bers of society whose lives are in daily peril from the alarming pre valence of murderer. Nor can I for get that Such anexercise of clemency as is asked of me may, by inspiring in brutal violators of the law the hope of escaping "punishment, be come an incentive to new crimes. In this case the criminal was playing at cards in a drinking-saloon,armed with a murderous weapon, and ready to use it on the first provocation ;and after an intercharge of opprobrious language with a young man who had entered the room he tired at the latter three shots,of which one prov ed fatal. . I can find no justification fordefcat ing the execution of the interposi tion of my authority and as the ex pression of my purpose in similar cases will have the effect of deter ring evilminded persons from com mitting this highest of crimes, I am willing to have it understood that circumstances of a very extraordi nary nature will be needed to induce me to - interpose for the purpose of an nulling the deliberate and well- considered determination ot juries and courts. This declaration of the Governor helps to make the punishment of murder certain in the State of New York. MARRIED.
