THE STOKES CASE. t
I t -
o The Stokes murder case again is the
Subject of telegraphic news, and all
New Yprk is agog with the theme in
volving the oowardly. and ruffianly
(murder with which Stokes stands
charged. He will never be hung.
i '¡Money and ‘influential friends” will
* xfln&Hy effect his exemption from the
penalty so justly due for the great
crime he committed. There is some-
• thing radically wrong in our manner
• of enforcing ■ the laws we enact—a
sort of sentimentality strikingly at
; variance with every safe rule for the
protection of human life. It is not
on now-a-days for a cold
blooded assassin to escape the pun
ishment provided by^ law for offenses
■i—the very recital of which chills
one’s blood. And it would seem that
the measure of atrocity involved in a
' given offense is that which tends* in
the direction of exculpation of the
culprit—no phase of the affair appa
rently mititating surtely toward a
conviction. Not alone
but in Oregon and many other States
is human life held at a fearful clis-
• count when money and “influential
friends” throw thexnsdves into the
breech between the pisoner and the
measure .of punishment justly due for
• his crime. . Further: in numerous no
table instances where conviction could
. not, by any possibility be reached,
the aflair lias simply amounted to a
matter of form, for the executive has
at once been set. upon, and besought
for a pardon, until, unable longer to
stein the tide of importunity, he at
last grants the pardon, and a mur
derer stalks forth a free man to shoot
down like a dbg whomsoever he may
fancy has insulted his “dignity,” or
whose relatkfri toward him he may,
on his own otion m torture into a hos-
‘ tile one, relying upon the appliances
usually brought to bear in kindred
cases to save his neck from stretch
ing hemp. Never, until punishment,
swift and unerring is meted out to
1 murderers, will murders and assassin
ations be stayed.
WTe wish it understood that we do
not hold ourselves responsible for Mie
opinions our correspondents may
min tain. But while we are glad to
hear what they have to say, we wish
them to say it with courtesy and pru
dence. Moreover, we wish our corres
pondents to be brief and to the point.

The Washington Sentinel, in its is

longer any doubt that Jay Cooke &
Co. look to the next Congress for re

procrastinate and to keep the matter
in statu quo, and especially prevent any
of their creditors from forcing them
into bankruptcy. We have it from
the very best authority that they will
as soon as Congress meets, throw up
their charter of the Northern pacific

> The German Government seems to
be growing somewhat tired of the
constant stream of emigration from
r its shores, and is about taking meas-
i ores to prevent it. But we doubt
whether anything can be done to pre
vent the multitudes from streaming
to America. Rendering our country
more difficult to reach, will lend it
new charms to the oppressed Ger-
maps. Thgy will resort to every
strategem that will enable them to
reach our shores, and the name of
America will be hailed with more de
light than when fewer obstacles were
in the way. We are glad to welcome
this class of citizens to our shores.
