I-East -Carroll in a criminal term.
t Judge Ranedell delivered a very
strong and excellent charge to the

Swhere. His Honor spoke as if he
meant every word be said, and we
predict that law breakers will have a
hard road to travel when JudgeRans.

that in the beginning of his judicial
career, and ever afterwards, he will so
administer justice with an even hand,

courts with the equity of the law

believe he will make a good officer.

District Attorney will have a success
ful career in their official positions;
that at all times the laws will be up
held by them, and that the spirit of
impartial justice will over prevail. So
