"I'nrdon mo," was the calm reply. "It was the Inw until your honor spoke." , These half flippant nnd wholly cvn leal expressions fairly reflect tho chaotlo condltoln of present-day Jurliprudcuco In the United Hlntcf, Who ran tell what Is tho law on any disputed point, nnd what possible point of law Is there that has not been disputed or Is not open to dis pute? What wonder Is it that men with large fort'inim nro able, by th employment of nstuto counsel, to stave off Indefinitely the. dctermlnu Hon of ii question whoso decision ad vcrsely to them It Is desired to nvcrt? Tint root of tho evil undoubtedly lies In the tremendous powers with which our courts in this country liavo been Invested. These powers were not dreamed of nt tho tlmo of tho creation of tho republic, und It Is n fact not generally known that In tho first fow years of Its existence tin supreme court ot thn United Kliitm was by no means so highly esteemed ns nt present as u placo of prefer ment, one appointed having declined a sent on that bench In order to uc- cept what he coiixldert'd the more dignified post of Judgo of the s-i-prcnift court ot Maryland, Hut It was jiiit!4im before the su preme court or the t'nlted Hlates be gun t uiyuuic poeri Jo rgnrd t the .Aiiir6M..n ..rxnraiiri SiTSi ti ,i. law,. ln'h h.iw nrer iwn nrmitod to Die t'ouris ot an country In tho world. WhethervH,not this nsMimp Hon was wnrraniedlli tho first place, It hnn subsequently been acquiesced In and Is now firmly established ns an Inherent right. of tho court. Kluto courts were not slow to follow llii' example of the federal supreme court within tho limits of their Jurisdic tion, und Die result has been thnt we now hnvo forty-nine supremo courts construing In many Instunces tho same questions according to thulr fnrty-nlna different points or view and with their forty-nine varying shades of ability nnd learning. It Is no wonder that the ordinary mini wonders where he "Is at'' when ho gets Into a court uf law, or that every casa which Is tried Is Involved In the greatest uncertainty und doubt. Something should be dona to mnke the law less of u sporting prop osition and more nearly an approach to tho exact oclenco that It Is theoret ically sujiposed to lie. WHY NOT KlMtP .SOU? It Albuquerque Is to take tho phicu to which sha Is Justly cntltlud as an enterprising American ally, Immedi ate steps must bo taken to Increase the. number of purks niul recrculluli pluces mulntulncd by the city. It Is useless tn call attention to tho value of parks to the growing city. This feature of city life, unco couMdcrcd a luxury, Is now general I) conceded to be a necessity to the heullh and happiness ot any crowded community. No amount of conges tion of population Into towns and cit ies will ever remove the Intuitu crav ing In tho breast of man for the beauties ot nuture and tho happiness thnt comes from mere contact with her aharms. Hlght now Is tho tlmo for Albu querque to begin a systcinutlo polloy of pirk building which will meet the future needs ot this rapidly growing community. There, Is room for parks now, and land can bo hud, It Judi ciously chosen, nt prices well within tho menns of the city. In a fow years values wilt huvo greatly en hanced und tho expenditures which such n policy would entail wilt be a burden on tho taxpayers. It Is merely a question ot foresight and economy. Mora und bettor parks nro bound to come. Let us excruUo n little Judgment und cum mon senso by bujlding them while It can be done, rhenply.

The reports In American papers ot the trial f the ('iimnrrUln ut Vlterbo huvo made many people, wonder If there Is any system ut nil about crim inal trials, and If Micro is, what the system Is like There Is a system, und a very simple one It Is, though utterly different Trum thnt which governs procedure In American or Ungllsh courts, says an exchartge. Thn trial takes placo before three. Judges and a Jury, to which aro add ed n certain number of extra Jurors who aro sworn nnd aro present In court to hear tho testimony, und nro held ready to take the place In the Jury box of any Juror who may In the course of the trial bo Incapaci tated from further service The dep. osltlons of nil the witnesses hnvo been tnkeu In writing and signed be fore the trial begins. Kach of tho Judges has u copy ot these betora him. The prosecutor nnd the counsel for tho accused furnish to tho court u list of tho witnesses they desire called, und theso uro summoned all by tho court, which has tho power to punish nnn-uttendance. Tho first thing thnt happens when tho trial begins Is tho questlontnK of Ihu accused by tho presiding Justice. In Italy, as In most of continental Kuropc, n mnn accused of u crime Is considered by the law tn bo tho very best witness to his own guilt or In nocence. In Knglnnd nnd America the licensed need not testify unless he uhoosc. In Italy ho la the first and most Important witness. The neeusrit Is allowed tho widest scope In defending himself. He has a right to tell hts own story in his own wav t" off.r nnythlng he ennisnnt from ,f,"olytuo u OMico U'ty, It tri; i . .. i in. uri. .ii ;.i i'i i n ttitn. iixn limr-t) evident? I -utmi-1 il To. judge im uu..iiiii' :in i. Hon s to what testimony may be i calved and what excluded, and nny Judge who exercised tills discretion unfairly would bu un object ot exe cration. Illus on the part of one judgo Is possible, but there uro al ways two other Judges on the bench with him, and thoy are u perfect check ugnlnst unfairness. When the uccused bus given his testimony he Is confronted personally with his accuser. Tho accuser 1 necessarily the principal witness ugnlnst him. Strictly spenklng, the prisoner has no right to interrupt Itla accuser while tho latter Is telling his story, but In practice tho Judges per mit it, nnd tho confrontation Home times becomes u thrcu-Qoruerod de bute between accuser, uccused und Judge, tho latter giving tho accused thn widest leeway tu demonstrate his Innocence.

We give one weekly to the person who, at 8 o'clock Saturday evening, presents a card showing the greatest total cash pur chase during the preceding week. Remember, the dinner set costs absolutely nothing. Our goods are reasonably priced and marked in plain figures, If you buy most goods during the. week, THE DIN NER SET IS YOURS. STRONG BROS. House Furnishers doca not Includo schools or county. Therefore when wo show Doh Molue' levy for munlclpnl purposes only to bo 37.1 mill on tho dollar It really amounts to but ono-fourth that amount, or less than I per cent to bo sieclflc, 9 35 mills. Tho decreased showing Is of great Importance, when It la known that under tho old regime n constant defi cit for current expenses waa Incurred, amounting- in tho aggtegato to tho proccedH of n 1-nilll levy unnualiy, while during tho three years of com mission rule the city hna levied prac tically within Its Income fur curient excnsc, and ftirtncr thnt there was Included In ihu budget, by direction of tho voters un.i the Ugl-lnturc, addi tional o.viomittiiii for ii'w city hall, for n now viaduct rljlit ot way, and n firemen's pcuslou fund ummimlnK 111 all to 2.7 mills nnnunlly. Nuthlug is more fallacious than to nssunio thai a comparison nf a city a tux levy, or Its bonded Indebtedness, Is an Indication ot cf'citnoy or in efficiency, extrnvugnuco or economy. Tho real test Is whothor tho money lecolvcd has been expended wisely. To real test Is tho result Des Moines obtains from tho expoudlturo of but I0 000, for cleaning Its ninety miles of paved streets, Deo Moines grades her 150 tulles ot streets with 182,000. alio IlRltti alt tho neccHEitry thoroughfares with JttS, COO.
