Entered at the postotfioo at Port Gibson,Miss,
aa seonnd-elaaa mall matter,
Keep your gin insured. Within
the past week or ten days Mr«. Keth
ley, of Copiah county, and Dr. Ap
plewhite, of Lincoln, have lost their
gins by fire, aud neither one was in
an red.
The St. Loni* Republic, which has
bean a conspicuous free-silver shout
er, is now a convert to sound-money
ideas. The recent election has con
vinced it that Democmtio success is
impossible on a silver platform. Thero
will be more such converts before tho
campaign of 1896.
Probably the most blatant and eg
otistical ass at present extAnt on this
continent is Governor Pennoyer, the
proof of which assertion may bo
found in his Christmas day letter to
Mr. Cleveland. They must bo queer
peoplo in Oregon to cbooso such a
ranter for their governor.
JM. Beasley, a farmer who lives
twelve miles from Ilazlehurst, lost
$5,000 in gold about three weeks ago,
the money having been stolen from
its hiding place in tho loft of his
house. A farmer with that amount
of cash is a decidedly rare bird in
this part of the world now-a days.
The Texas Democoats who.in 1890
elected a governor by 182,434 major
ity, this year had 2,000 less titan a
majority over the combined Populist,
H'publican and Prohibition parties.
However, Mr. Culberson, the Dem
ocratic candidate bad about 60,000
plurality over hisPopulist comjietitor.
The massacre of nearlv 2000 un
arrmd and unresisting Chinese,—
men, women, aud children,—in Port
Arthur by tho victorious Japanese
troops, was ono of the most atrocious
crimes of this century. Evidently
the Japanese as yet Ituvo but u thin
varuish of civilisation over their na
tive barbarism.
'['he reported "ra(?o war* in Brooks
countv, Georgia, turns out to have
b eu liPle better than a massacre on 1
tho part of lawless white men.
One negro named Pike committed a
. . ,
murder and a mob thereupon a*
eemblod and killed five negroes who
where suspected of knowing where
1 ike was hidden, though there was
no proof of their gmlty knowledge.
That tho slaughter was without ex
«use is shown clearly by the later d«s
patches, which represent the better
ebuwof while people as being incensed
at the outrages and determined to
bring the perpetrators to justice,
Porthe sake of humanity oa well as
or the good name of Georgia,we hope
the white murderers as well as tlie
black one may be caught and pun
ished though it must Imi ncknowledg
cd that there is but little ground to
'Warrant any lively expectations that
this will be done.
A very mawkish scene look place
the other «lav before the Lexow in
vestigating committee in New York
when police cnpt.iin Creedon made
his confession. This perjurer nnd
self confessed bribe-giver nnd black
mailer 1 ms, it seems, n very honor
able war record, ami after he hnd
ended the tale ol his shame, here is
what happened :
Mr. Goff (who was conducting
the prosecution) apologized for caus
ing the captain the uupieat-antnev*
he had experienced. Tears suffused
Creedon'* eyes.
A sympathetic
tremor ran through the audienoe.
And,» continued Mr. Goff, «it
is the unanimous opinion of this
ooinmittee that in view of the splen
did services you have rendered your
cntinlry and to (lie committee, the
public interests will not be sub
served by' disturbing y*nu in your
present position as police captain.'
"Tlien there was a burst of np
plau*e, sucli ns no man conhl stop,
"Capt. Creedon arose. He looked
straight ahead. Tears filled his
eyes and his face twitched with e
motion. Then each member of the
committee, nnd counsel Goff, Je l
rome and Moss shook bis hand
warinlv. There was another buri-t
of applause and Cnpt, Creedon
walked Irom Ihe court room, cry
iog. Men, trembling m ith pent up
feelings, grasped his hand in sym
pathetic feeling."
4- - A few hours later superintendent
Byrne very properly suspended
Creedon from tho force for perjury
in swearing, at tlie time of bis ap
pointment as captain, that he had
paid no money for the place,where
as he acknowledged before the Lex
ow committee that he had bought
the appointment for $15,000. When
the committee learned that afler*
noon of Creedon'» suspenMon they
grew indignant, and summoning
Mr. Byrne before them, extracted
from him a promise that he would
obtain the disgraced policeman's
restirration a* captain. At this there
was more applause from the audi
eoce.
TImi utmost that Creedon should
have got from the committee was
immunity from prosecution, in re
turn for his testimony, valuable as
it was lo tho committee though
damning to himself. To make nn
"honorable war record" n pretext
for putting hack into office a crim
finit « 1.0 had prostituted that office
lo ihe lowest purpose« is to confuse
in the popular mind all distinction
between right and wrong, and to in
vite a repetition of Ihe crimes lliat
have made the very name of police
ipan m/arnous in our grealest city.

Our Absurd Jury System.
The mistrial in the east of Kane
ami Th ri fîtley, the New Orleans coun
cilmen who had been indicted for
bribery, i* only vrlrnt might bo ex
pected under ouf irret ion tu jury sys
tem. Eight of the jurymen were in
favor of convict ion, bat the other four
stood out stubbornly fur accquitUl ;
the requirement of » unanimous ver
dict made it possible for these four to
effect a mistrial. Uniil the jury sys
tem is reformed so as to give two
third of the mumbers power to return
a verdict, such miscarriages of justice
will occur again and arain. No mat
ter how clear and direct the evidence
of his guilt, the accused only needs
otto friend on the Jury, and then he
may laugh at tile efforts of the courts
to punish him for his crimes.
Tlie requirement of unanimity was
pronounced by the historian Hallet»
a preposterous relic of barbarism.
Hentham in his "E«uy on the Art
of Packing Juries," also denounced
it as "barbarous.
Judge Cooley says that it is "repug
nant to all experience of human con
duct.*'
Oov. Carpenter, of Iowa, in 1876
culled it "an antique absurdity."
corner savs that it
is a "great source of corruption and
consequent denial of justice."
Similar testimony might be multi
pliât indefinitely ; but no argument
is needed to show the folly of a rule
of unanimity in the jury room. The
plainest man is able to see bow it ob
structs justice and how it shields
criminals; and we believe that public
opinion will not tolerate it much
longer.
In a speech in emigre"* Inst week,
Mr. Perkins, of California, delivered
the following convincing argument
in favor of governmental aid to the
Nicaragua canal :
The canal will pay, as an exhibi
tion of American enterprise, of A*
merienn skill and forethought and of
American nerve. It will pay be
cause it must receivo the cornmenda

After rending this the dullest mind i
will see that the canal is bound to be
a paying enterprise. ,

Section 171 provides that no person

of the peace who shall not have reside!

his election. Section 176 provides that
no person shall be a member of the
board of supervisors who is not a resi

he is chosen. J udges and chancellor*

the office of judge of a circuit or chan

practicing lawyer five years, who shall
not have attained the age of 26 years,
and who shall not have been five years

Therefore, she is given a social po
sition on a level with princes and
monnrohs. To this there is added an
accumulated fortune estimated at
$900,000,000. The yearly income
of this is $37,000,000. The so-called
Anglican Establishment is thus the
richest church in the world. The
individual income of its prelates is
equal tothat of nobles and million

make laws. The clergymen are men
of influence, and frequently high
society leaders. And all the rights
of the church are carefully protect

Mile* Long.
Tke flume which conveys the water
from the mountains to the reservoir at
Hau Diego, CaL, is said by those who
know whereof they speak to be the
largest and longest thing of the kind in
the world. It is thirty-five miles long
and is composed almost wholly of red
wood.
In its course this monster flume
crosses 315 streams and canyons on
trestles, the longest of which is 1,7<X>
feet and 85 feet high. The tlmberF
u»ed in them were put togff aer on tho
ground and raised to their present posi
tion by horse pow£ r , »ays vhe St. Louis
Republic.
Besides many trestles, this flume
passe- through eight tunnels, the
longest of these being 2,100 feet in
length. The tunnels are each six by six
feet in size, with convex roofs.
Each mile of the flume required on an
average 250,000 feet of lumber and
timbers of all kinds, that used in con
structing the water-box itself being of
redwood, two inches thick. :
Building a water-tight box thirty-five
miles long over fathomless chasms and
through the hearts of mountains is a
gigantic undertaking which many be
lieved could not be accomplished. The
result has proved different. _ ~r.
