The San Francisco Spectator says
In a recent Issue:
From Washington comes the news
that the men Indicted some years ago
for conned Ion with the laud frauds I
in Oregon wilt be put on trial at ence
we are glad to hear this, and trust
that slow-footed, dilatory jusLice will
yet oertake tho wretches who robbed
the people of their heritage But we
fear the government Is taking 'tin
me prosecution n-itnout tne none of
conviction; the Impeachable Francis
Heney, the outcast ot San FrancUco,
has been rep.inod as prueoitor.
Mr. Heney returns to us nftef fl
long 6orlas of mijadventuros (includ
ing mistrials, new trfala, and acquit
tals) which had their climax In hit?
decisive defeat for DIsftict Attorney
ship of Ran Francisco. On his first
vi:.lt hero, he bore with him a splen
did repututfon as a successful rrcM
cutor; judges bowed before him. jur
ies yielded ail their seniles to his llicv
eloquence, opposing com;.l wert to
mm as clay In the hands of the pot
ior; editors knelt ard w ors ed
him; defendants, unable to Look on
ni3 uroau. pure prow. Khriekxa their
guilt, and plteously begged to have
the pentitentiary doors placed be
tween iham and him And after all.
the prisons are not bulging with men
whom Honey prosecuted.
The reputation that Mr. Heney
brings with him this time is tarnish
ed; his invincible shield Is dented.
Ve do not expect to see judges bow
before him and take Instruction from
mm. i nc old method of fukin? up
juiies from among the enemies f tho
defendants may be tried ag'tin, -rut
never with the success that attended
u before. Juggling with jury lists
Is as reprehensible when done -iy li e
prosecution as when undertaken by
the defense. Subornation by moans
or immunity contracts is not in such
high repute as It was; when thieves
fall out, honest men desire thct all
thieves get their dues, and that mon
ey shall not escape from giving testi
mony against the few who may '.e
prosecuted for political reasons.
The Spectator desires to see the
land robbers punished, and hopes
they will be punished. But bociuse
tho Government has employed the
discredited Heney to prosecute them,
we fear our hopes and desires are
