The crime occurred in Tholps, Atchison county, and the case was sent here on change of venue. 2. Tbero was no attempt whatever by tho citizens of Oregon to lynch the defendants. 3. There was no evidence that the roman ever mistreated the child. It is true that the man whipped her nn mercifully with a raw-hide, and struck her with his hand and kicked her, and otherwise maltreated her, aud she was found after death to bear sufficient cv idence that her death was caused by violence, and tho physicians so test! fied. 4. She was not .burnt with hot irons And pokers, nor was thero any evi jdeace that she was forced to walk . iMrefooted over Ice and snow, although her feet aud hands were frozen, but tram what cause did not appear. 6. Tbero was no evidence that she was beaten for talking with a child, or being absent from borne, although be .did threaten to whip her harder if she cried out, and thereby suppressed her screaming, when being whipped. o. j.e acienuants wero very poor aad dfd not clothe her very well, but tho evidence .did not show that she was .denied cither food or clothing, cx pent that sho bad no shoes and not niHch .clothing. 7. The trial only lasted jtwp days, not icree; ana too trial .excited no special interest, nor wcro tho people aroased. The usual number ot spec tators were about tho court bouse nn til the afternoon of tho last day, when the court house was almost cleared of them to witness a game of base ball. And there wcre no expressions of vin dictivencss toward the prisoner by the people, hough all who beard the trial Regarded his conviction asaforcgono concision, aud thought it just. 8. Tbe jury wcre out about three boors, (not a fery minutes,) and the .verdict was not for manslaughter in xno 1st degree, but for murder in the second degree, a much higher crime. and the jury assessed the punishment at 25 years In tho penitentiary. When the verdict was returned there were but low persons present, (the room .was not densely crowded,) and not a jvord or whisper was heard in approv ed or condemnation, but everything .was still as tbe graft? at the solemnity ofccason."' !). Judge Kclley had not sentenced tho prisoner when that article was written, and did not until Thursday of mm wee, giving tjmp for motions lor new trial and in arrest. 10.
