Hon. A. J. Stbeetkr, the great friend

The New York Bun the morning fol
lowing the execution of the four prison
ers by electricity at Sine Sine tbis week
aid: "Tbis morning the Sun and every
other real newspaper in the state openly
and deliberately violate that section of the
electrical execution law which forbids the
publication of the details of an execution:
No account of the details of any such
execution, beyond the statement of tbe
fact tbat such convict was, on tbe day in
question, duly executed according to law
at the prison, shall be published in any
newspaper. Any person who shall vio
late or omit to comply with any provision
of this section sbail be guilty of a misde
''This provision, intended by tbe cranks
who framed it to throw around tbe death
chamber and the death chair a mystery
like tbat surrounding a torture room of
the middle ages, stands in tbe statutes as
a disgrace to tbe civilization of which we
are proud. It is against public policy,
it Is impossible to enforce, and it is de
fled and will continue to be defied by
every self -respecting newspaper in New
York on every such occasion as tbe exe
cution of Eemmler at Auburn eleven
months ago, and the killing at Sing Sing
yesterday morning of Slocum, Wood,
Smiler and the Japanese Jugiro. The
law which vainly seeks to restrain tbe
press of New York in the performance of a
public duty of tbe first importance, itself
defies a higher law, namely, tbe Con9titu
tion of New York. In tbe bill of rights
which constitutes Article I of the consti
tution, and which catalogues tbe most
precious heritages of a freedom gained
by blood, it is agreed and forever decreed
that no law shall be passed to restrain or
abridge tbe liberty of speech or of tbe
presf. Tbe free press knows its duty
and its power; and so long as tbe uncon
stitutional prohihibition stands as part of
the electrical execution law, that part of
the law will be disobeyed by the news
papers of New York, universally, delib
erately and rightly.
"But tbe press of this state ha9 another
duty to perform, even more important
than its periodical self-objection to pro
secution for a righteous misdemeanor. It
must bring about the repeal of tbis un
constitutional provision, insulting to tbe
very name of American liberty. To that
end it should devote its utmost energies
at the next election. Without regard to
pertonal or partisan considerations, it
should support for the legislature and for
responsible executive posts only such
candidates s are distinctly committed
.against tbis preposterous revival of me
diaeval principles, and pledged to help
in sweeping tbe press gag law from the
"Until tbat is accomplished, a black
stain rests upon the fame of the New
York press. Ii there any journalist in
the state, republican or democratic, who
does not account the priceless right of
free utterance as far above any tempo
rary issue which partisanship can devise?
For tbe good name of our profession, we
hope not. Tbe Sun is ready, for one,
to engage itself to support any republican
candidate who shall promise to vote or
work next winter for tbe repeal of tbe
foolish, unconstitutional law which
Strikes at the liberty of the press, as
against any democrat who shall refuse or
omit to put himself on record for free
speech and a free press."
And the Sun is right, just as were tbe
Minnesota papers which ignored tbe law
of tbat state wbich forbid the press from
following its duty as guaranteed by tbe
constitution, Tbe makers of statutary
provisions which seek to muzzle tbe
press and the formulators of prohibitory
laws are cranks in the most properly ao
cented version of the term, who are
not capable of making laws adaptable to
the present day, and as long as tbe peo
ple elect such a class to the halls of leg
islation, so long will they see their laws
ridiculed, ignored and violated.

district court at Davenport Thursday

The police arrested a man the other
day for creating a nuisance in the public
streets. He so loaded bis wagon that
chunks of mill wood fell into the road.
and were left there to jolt vehicles and
ame horses. The action was proper and
right. o man should be permitted to
clutter the streets to the damage of others.
But has tbe policeman who made tbat
arrest, or have any of his brethren ever
sauntered up Front street anywhere
along between Davis' shops and the east
end of it and noticed the dropping of mill
wagons there- Why, he could pick up a
cord of mill stuff along the road, and
loose donnicks enough to start a cellar
Isn't it about time tbat tbe nuisance
was abated in tbat quarter? Has a saw
mill force any superior right to block up
the public highway and to make it dan
gerous? If a solitary driver may be ar
rested and fined for the small nuisance
he is perpetrating why not a lot of mill
wagon and stone cart drivers who are do
ing tbe same thing? It is good tbat tbe
police have begun this reform. It will
be better if they continue to do so and
keep it up until mills and teams learn to
be neat and orderly. Davenport Demo
