ihe court called attention to the most ι
important and most common offens- |
es in the criminal code, such as mur- j
(1er. assault with intent to murder, |
aggravated assault, robbery, theft,
forgery, swindling and embezzlement.
In referring to th·· offense of rape
the court said ibis crime was a dis
grace to ι he state of Texas and to
tin· whole South. The man who was
brute enough to commit such a hein
ous offense did not deserve to live j
and should receive the extreme pen

these days of advanced civilization
there was no excuse for a man roam
ins around the rojf. : ; Jojidea » own
will! pistols, bowie knives, dirks nnn
slung-shots like a robber in Turkey.
The court's charge along this line
was very emphatic and positive.

not add anything to the body politic,
bill w;is continually taking away from

ized as a menace to society, as an j
agent for the ruin and destruction ol
