Accobdiro to a report compiled
by the New York World, 23 men have
directly lost their lives in the ring
' since the beginning of organized
prise fighting. One of the curious
results chronicled Is that deaths hare

Jcstice was slow In aoaomplishing
itt ends in the case of the St. Louis
millionaire murderer, Dr. Duestrow,
but the blind goddess was true in
the end. It was a long and hard
fought struggle for the triumph of
right over the might of wealth, but
finally, after three years of delay,
the gilded fiend went to the gallows.
Guilty of one of the most frightful
and inexplicably unnatural crimes in
the annals of wickedness, there were
but two ways possible to save the
demon from the penalty that anoth
er would have promptly paid
wealth and the insanity plea. The
first was at Dnestrow's comman 1,
the other he employed, but both
failed. It wao a case, too, in which
the press of St. Louis, the Chronicle
la particular, was as much retponti
ble for the bringing of the wretch to
the gallows as any other agency en.
listed la the cause of jattice. The
newspapers were quick to expose
every plot to save the murderer's
neck, and their alertness, together
with their unswerving demand that
the law lau penalty would alone
suffice, finally brought this son of
Satan to the hangman.
