JOS. T. SCOTT.
.. editor and piiblWhor
Many people ware surprised at tlie
Haywood verdict of acquittal. Tboee
who followed the ciiho closely, aim I
yzed the testinmny aud tho judge's
olmrge to the jury, looked for acquit
tal. There was uo other course opeu
to the jury, from the very fact that
the accused was in no way directly
connected with the fiendish murder
of Staunenbeig aside from the testi
mony of Orchard.
The verdict has punctured the soc
ialist bubble which has been kept
tilled with wind silica the arrest of
the accused by the tabid rautlngH of
suoh Irresponsible papers as the Ap
peal to Reason being absolutely sure
that a great conspiracy existed and
our oourta ware corrupted for the pur
pose of railroading Haywood to the
gallows. The trial was tair aud impar
tial, aa will be the trials of Hay
wnod's associates, aud Idaho, looked
upon by the east as a wild and unciv
ilised aeotloo of the country, can no
longer be villiflad by the socialists
without their being classed as abso
lutely dishonest and unfair.
Governor Gooding has proclaimed
from the housetops the guilt of Hay
wood and pleaded with the legislature
for 1100,000 with which to pay the
expense of ounvictlng a man against
whom be claimed to have absolute
evidence of guilt. Had he been more
reasonable and stated that he hoped
to And and convict tho murderers, he
would not now be in the position of
the boy holding the sack. Pollti
oally the governor has killed himself
by bis failure to make good his as
aertioua and declarations.
From a socialist poiut of view tho
verdlot will he made the most of.
The socialist* will cease to exploit
their doctrine of unfairness aud Injus
tloe and instead will sar that the
court ieared them. They will herald
the verdlot aa a victory for socialism
Aa puoh it will be spread to the
civilised world, when in fact it is but
an exemplification of the justice and
fairness of our judicial system when
properly administered. The verdict
ia the beat argument that oould be
produced against socialism aud chaos.
The trial was fair, William D.
Haywood waa acquitted aud the
American people generally will ao
eept the verdict aa honestly given.
A fsw days since the Journal joker
■aid that "If Hoott will set them up
tu the boys they will keep quiet. "
The last one we set up, ehowlug that
the deed to the city lot not worth
Hm paper It le written on, seems to
have bad the effect desired by the
joker, for the whole bunoh,|from may
or dowu to the joker have cloeed up
like elame. We hear no more of
the talk about the defective deed be
lug ' 'Scotts' silly stuff." It is not
heralded from the house tops aud
street corners. The joker's joke has
become too serious a fact, lieuauee It
alfsota private property which has
beau illegally transferred, uot only
by the Odd Fellows, but by otbei or
Mayor Scallou is the person who
managed the transfer of the property
from the Odd Fellows to the city aud
It the tangle cannot now be straight
sued ont in time, the bond election
might be postponed for a month.
When the title Is cleared up we have
no doubt the taxpayers will favor
bonding for a city building. In fHCt
a new jail, (ire station, tire proof
vault* or records aud place for meet
lugs are a necessity and tbe improve
meat can be iqade with but slight ad
ditlon to the taxes.
The proposal to return part of the
Chinese Indemnity fund to the treas
ury of Chinn originated, officially at
least, with the late Secretary Hay.
Congress failed to take efficient action
then, but perhaps that body will carry
ont President Roosevelt's suggestion at
the next session. This country never
wanted to receive the full award, and
tbe only way to make a square deal
In the premises Is to hand hack the
■urplua after paying actual damages.
This le rather alarming Information
that the congressional librarian Is go
ing to keep phonographic records of
tbe apeeche« of present day statesmen
In cokl storage, so that they can be
taken out In after years aud we can
hear the dead s|>cak. It Is enough to
*1y* one the cold creeps.
