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
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
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.

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

phone company, representing most of
the business men of the city, he is

There is very little possibility and
less probability that the matter will be

attention that will be paid to it will be

these papers to establish a record of

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

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. S~r"- ,„.

The seriousness of the crime with
which Mr. Liesch is charged is made
doubly.so by the vicious persistency

prejudice the minds of people against"

Such a purpose is beneath contempt.
It ought to be held conspiracy to mur

a position where justice cannot reach

be only a prison sentence, at least for
such a time as is necessary to give
