la Portland, the other day, Jndge
IteUtagsr and his court were amazed
Isy a jury that returned a verdict of
cqntttal ior Abe Logan, after
another jury on weaker evidence
bad convicted Albert Martin of
'manslaughter, for the murder of
Indian Grant at Siletz, The judge
gave expression to his surprise and
mortification by declaring that by
the acquittal of Logan, justice had
been cheated, and that at least a
a '.verdict of minslaughter should
ha.ye been rendered.
in our live of liberty that we vaunt.
And there was a time in the days of
tyrants and tyranny, when its pos
session was a privilege of which to
boast. With the evolution of civiliza
tion. however it begins to show
faults, and the greatest of these is
the uncertainty that always attends
the deliberations of a body of men.
Xegislatures made up of the alleged
talent of the state, sometimes - do
unheard of things.- They rarely
fail to do some things that never
ought to be done, and that in saner
TTsrroments the legislators acting in
dividually would nsver do. The
congress of this country in a mo
ment of'pstssion, led on by Sumner
aiid Pnillips put the ballot in the
. la'nd-s of the negro, now acknow
ledged to have been a most irration
al and senseless .act . Instances, both
.multiplied and astonishing of the
same character are constantly hap
pening both ia and out of jury
rooms, so when seven men for con
viction yield to five in a Portland
court and - turn a murderer loose
unpunished and unblamed, it is not
a circutnstanca to . wonder , at. It
has been done before and it will be
One jury convicts a guilty man
f murder in the first degree, anoth
er hears his case under a new trial
and perhaps giveshim a couple "of
years. while a third called, to pass
n the samecase, sends him out ; of
court wun an acquittal, an apoiogy
for the laws long delay, - and with
the blessing of the jurors.
A ccordingly, . w hen - Martin goes
to .prison for manslaughter ' and
Logan, free as a bird and blameless
as a flower, goes back to the scene
of his homicide,; the public will
know that justice was partial,' but
sinpe it was the work .of juries, it
cannot be helped, and need not sur
. -prise.-v ... -i.
