murdej- in the second degree; It was
a first degree murder or none. The
evidence was all. circumstantial, but
but very strong. According to It,
the murderer procured two livery
horses, lured his victim to accom
pany him on pretense of securing
employment for him, and on arriv

killed him, took his money some $80,
dragged the body several rods and
covered it with sage brush, returned

murders, ever committed anywhere,
yet the .Jury found the defendant
guilty In the second instead of the
first degree. Why? Perhaps in
the minds of some of the Jurors
there remained a faint, lingering
trace of doubt as to the man's guilt,
and if by any possibility- bis inno
cence should ever "be disclosed, he
could be liberated. ' More' likely
some felt a repugnance to capital
punishment. , A great many persona
are opposed to the law that follows
the Old Mosaic dectrlne of taking a
life for a- life. And some Jurors
may have considered, correctly, that
life imprisonment is a heavier pun
lshment than sudden death. Theor

honest, reasonable doubt, but some
men accepted as Jurors will do so,
and many of them readily compro
