FRIDAY, APRII 29, 1910
Siucc tbc grand jury 1ms seen fit
to find true bills against nine of
our citizens in the Hindu riot case,
it is incumbent upon all our citizens
to stick together and furnish what
ever nid vc tuny toward insuring
all indicted n fair and impartial
trial. It is right that justice be
done. The guilty should suffer to
the extent of the wrongs com
mitted. Wc believe none desire to
stand in the wny of justice or
thwart it in any manner whatso
ever. But PROOF of guilt must be
forthcoming. Unreliable and un
trustworthy evidence cnunot be tol
erated. This community cannot
afford to ircrmit one of its citizens
to be unjustly persecuted or pun
ished. The proof must be absolute
and undoubted. It should not be
said of the city of St. Johns that
she allowed evcu one of her family
to be punished so long as an cle
ment of innocence was apparent.
If funds arc needed to insure a fair
impartial trial wc believe they will
be forthcoming. Nothing but im
partial treatment will be asked. If
proven guilty, the guilty must and
should be punished. If not, they
should be honorably acquitted.
There can be no half way measure
adopted. We do not anticipate any
unfairness during any of the trials,
but our citizens should so stick to
gether that no uncertain clement
may enter Into any case as it comes
