Ho says: "Tho "defeat of Judgo Parkcr should not bo consldored a personal one. Ho- dld aa well aa he could under the clrcumstancea.

Neltho'r can defeat be charged to em ptmlto condcmnatlon of tho trusts,' for the trusts were not assallcd aa vlgorously thls year'as they were four years ago. It ls evldent that the campalgn dld not turn upon the question of Impertallsm. and It Is not falr to conslder tho result as a personal vlctory for the Presldent .al though hls admintstratlon was the sub Ject of crit.tclsm.

It sounded a partial retrea*. when it should have ordered a chargo all along the llne. The Democratto party haa nothlng. lo galn by catcrlng to organlzed and preda tory wealth. Tt must not only do with ont such support, but It cah strengthen Itself by, invlting thc open and emphatlc opposltloh of theso cleraents.

Sentence Passed. Wlth a volco ? that trembled and nl most broko; Judge George W. Morrls, ono, tlmo friend and Cellow-townsman of hlm, who, pale and weak, now stood bo foro hlm a convicted felon. yesterday passed tho sentence that means an Ignominlous nnd frlghtful end to tho ca reer of a once nappy and prosperons man. Tho scene was qulckly bogun and aa qulckly over. Wlth a- rapldlty that caused many to gnsp, thero was flnslud before the eyes of threo or four luui dred people tho figuro of the prisoner protesting hls lnnocence, and thon ol" the court pronouncing tho terrlblo words of the death sentence. It was over and done ln an instant, but that insiant flxed U Kelf Indellbly upnu the memory of tnohb who slmddercd and saw. It camo at tho end of an hour lnto whlch had becn crowded events many had expected would drag on through days. The motlons pf Uie defenso for a new trial were mndo, nnd ono by one were overruled. Thero was no argument, nnd heroln is where camo tho surprlso, and the suddenness wlth whlch tho court and tho people found themselves facing tho olimax of a trngedy that has shakep the Stato to its very depths. Bverybody had looked for a wrangle that would con* nume at least one afternoon. Yet wlthln, thrce-quarters of an hour, before etther the Judgo or tho pooplo could braoe themselves for the ctid, the end had corno. Motions Overruled. Slx reasons for tho nio-tion for a now trlal were polnted out, and whon thesa proved of no avail, a soventh atterapt to, stay tho hand of tho court was made, only to meet the fate of the others. Judgo Morrls passed quirkly over tho flrst flvo motlons, but dwelt upon the slxth, whlch he declared to be the only one that had cauaed the court any troublo. Thls was the vexed questlon of the readlng of (Tinewpapers by the Jurymen. After eare ful consldenitlon, bowover, he had de cldcd 'that thls objoctlon, too, was ln* valld. It had not been shown that tha Jurymen were ln any way inlluenced by what they had seen In tho prlnted shocts; on the contrary, they had atntod under oath that thelr verdict had becn ln no way affooted by hoadllnos or reports. It was, thoreforo, tho oplnion of tho court that thls motlon, aloug wlth th* llvo that preeeded It, ghould be overruled. After notlng excoptlons to thls action tho defenso mado Its last movc?equally valn. The Jury had found' the prisoner "gullty, as chnrgod In tho indlctment, of murder ln the tlrat tlogrec." Tho Indlpt mont was slmply for nuirder, and under It the accuaed could havo beon convicted of any dogrcc of honilclde. ~1t was clahn ed thnt a flaw in tho verdict? "gullty as chnrgod ln tho indlctment"?left It open what the jury mea'nt, and It was he'd to bo Improper for tho court to undortaia to establiah tlio degroe <<f guilt. Tho rul?
