&&*. 4, *k £&•-». I 8e$" I AD example of what unthinking and irresponsible people will do for a few "cents is given in the Minneapolis Journal of a recent date by the pub lication of an article purporting to ^ome from this city to the effect that one of the brothers of the mother of -Geo. Koch was a murderer, stating ihat the matter had been thoroughly -investigated and it was true and-would be used to establish the fact at the next trial, that the passion for mur der was inherited in Dr. Koch. JHEW UL,M E I W 12, fSMednesday,Itpril The article is a vicious piece of in famy, that has no foundation in fact and is a libel of the most criminal kind, for the mother of Dr. Koch had no brothers, according to the state ments of those who are supposed to know, and the only thing that could give rise to the article is the fact that a nephew of Dr. Koch's grandfather, did kill a man in self-defense and did serve a few years in the state peniten tiary for manslaugbterr If, as the article referred to states, it was a deed more heartless than the murder of Dr. Gebhardt, there could have been no sentence of manslaughter. There is only one penalty in this state for crimes of that sort and that is death. If the motive for such wholesale ly ing is simply to^make a few cents it shows a depravity of mind that is be yond comprehension, and if the pur pose*comes from a desire to influence prospective jurors it is baser yet. Lt is to be hoped that it did not come from any source in this city. The same article, with a little varia tion, appears in the last issue of the Brown County Journal and also the New Ulm News, portrayed with .start-' A prominent member of the beef packers' combine has been indicted by the federal grand jury-in Chicago. In dictments are hanging over the heads of several of his conferers. The pro ceedings are being conducted with con siderable secrecy, but the men who are being hit know what is going on in their ease. Thus far the proceedings against the packers are for conspiracy, or alleged conspiracy, on the charge of trampering with the witnesses in the beef trust case. The examinations on charges which involve the actual viola tion of the antitrust Jaw are also .un der way. SHAMELESSNESS OF STRING FIENDS It is on the ground that ..they in fringe Ihe antitrust law that the pack ers have most to fear from the federal authority. Several suits have already gone ag"ainsfc them, and these indicate that on criminal proceedings, which are now being instituted, they are open to very serious assault. The pretense of their lawyers that they are not members of a trust is vain.

ALL EQUAL IN LAW The Review was unable to get a re port of a recent meeting of the pro moters of the Independent telephone company because, taking the word of the president of the company as reli able, the reporter did as he requested and left the hall. Mr. Liesch as a newspaper man is perhaps entitled to this privilege and any advantage he can secure by such tactics he is at li berty to use to his advantage. It seems to be his forte to take advant age of circumstances in the most un scrupulous manner to assist his busi ness, but as the president of a tele^ phone company, representing most of the business men of the city, he is Wsing his office for a purpose that shows how infinitely small is his ap preciation of what is right and just. There is very little possibility and less probability that the matter will be brought up in the trial. It is too far fetched to be considered and the only attention that will be paid to it will be that caused by the insane desire of these papers to establish a record of shameless cruelty and vulture-like rapacity in securing their sensational stories. Is it not enough for the papers of this city that an o\i man's heart is nearly breaking because of the sorrow the necessity of this defense has forced iip onhim?,f j^ $g^ it not sufficient that the relatives of the defendant in this case have, in the actual facts connected with the case, enough of the cross of sadness to bear? The least that can be..,-said of the action of these papers in this little city where each man is neighbor to each otheV, is that it is not news, it is heaping insult upon injury, and at tempting to biacken the character of an honorable family by trying to stretch over its history the deeds of a man so distantly removed from it that there is not the slightest connection, more than there is in the story that most of us are. descendants of the in glorious Cain. 2 It is possible that we may be mis^ taken in what constitutes news but if it is necessary to stoop to such methods as is demonstrated in the Liesch school of journalism then we have to admit that we have made a dismal failure of the business. 7 porations. The particular personages who are to be dealt with by the federal courts in the criminal prosecution are members ©f these companies. They are malefactors in the eye of the law. SAID MEETING WAS PRIVATE The prosecution of a few of the beef packers will be a fine lesson for the country. It will show the people, in cluding those who are members of the big combines, that the richest and the poorest are on an absolute equality in this country in the eye of the law. If the individual packers who are being assailed are found guilty, they will have to meet the punishment pre scribed by the 'statute. President Roosevelt stands behind the courts in New York and Chicago which are pro ceeding against the^beef combiner His earnestness and courage in his crusade for the enforcement of the laws brought the Northern Securities company to grief a year ago, and hit the beef trust at an earlier and a later date. It is a criminal prosecution which is being waged this time, and if guilt is fasten ed on the accused persons nothing will save them from going behind the bars. own lies would not convince the young man he employed his own reporter to lie to him and the two of them succeed ed in getting him out of the hall. Wasn't it a beautiful specimen of a just and great man, who for the past months has been prating about the dignity of truth? What pride the members of the com pany he represents must take in the action of their president? We presume that Mr. Liesch and his reporter got together and laughed over the matter, and called it a good joke, but the president of the telephone company is stooping to very small ends to frame a joke for himself. It was in plain English a dirty piece of business and if it is a sample of the work he is going to do as president of the telephone company, the sooner the promoters get a man in the office the better off thev will be.

The seriousness of the crime with which Mr. Liesch is charged is made doubly.so by the vicious persistency he has maintained since the arrest of Dr. Koch, in an apparent attempt to prejudice the minds of people against" a man whose life depends on the. de cision twelve of these men must give. Such a purpose is beneath contempt. It ought to be held conspiracy to mur der. It is placing a helpless man in a position where justice cannot reach him. -For such an offense there should be only a prison sentence, at least for such a time as is necessary to give the man against whom he has such an tipathy, a chance for his life.
