A BIT OF HIS TRADE.
., Mr. Erwin, who is said to be a bril
liant St. Paul lawyer, and who is en
gaged in defending a rich young man
named Hay ward, charged with murder
ing a young woman, yesterday began his
argument to. the jury, and in its course
paid his respects to the newspaper fra
ternity as follows :
"In the last few years of these modern
times every effort has been made to
make the jury simply one of the aids of
public prosecution. A deep movement
has been going on for the past twenty
years to destroy this most ancient bul
wark of public liberty. Public need,
public opinion undigested, the creations
of public journalism and the ill-formed
judgment of passion have been used to
give them greater weight and power.
This is the unspoken movement in this
case today. Why, we have tried this
case' before two juries one that has not
spoken, and will not speak before it can
declare its conscience before its God and
deliberate. And there is another jury,
not devoted to the investigation of truth,
but given to the most sensational parts
of daily life. This jury tears down civil
ization," shouted the tall attorney,
turning and gazing into the faces of the
reporters. Then a long finger was sol
emnly raised, and the attorney cried
"Every time it dips its pen in the ink it
is to write hasty, undigested facts."
Had Mr. Erwin studied the art of
making an ass of himself all the days of
his life, assisted as he was by a generous
start from Nature, he could not possibly
have arrived at a more perfect stage of
development than his language would
indicate he has now reached. And had
he descended in a direct line from cross
strains of the blood of Ananias and Sap
phira and Baron Munchausen, he could
not have reached a more lotty pinnacle
in the art of prevarication. If there is
one thing that the press, and the whole
press of the United States, is conscien
tious in, that it is careful to speak noth
ing but the truth concerning, it is the
trial of a murder case. At the most the
testimony is given to the public as it is,
and except that it cannot see the wit
nesses, and so judge of the weight of
their evidence from their manner, it is
put in many cases in as good position to
form an opinion concerning the case as
the jurors themselves.
Mr. Erwin is employed in the case to
have bis client acquitted, that is what
he is paid for, and that is (as these mat
ters are viewed) his duty. We have no
fault to find with Mr. Erwin, or the
profession on that score ; but when it
comes to his assertion that the news
papers of the country deliberately de
ceive the public, and undertake to try
cases out of court, he asserts what he
knows to be false. Comparison between
the newspapers and the attorneys in
these matters will not redound to the
credit of the latter. The aim of the
newspaper is to get at the truth ; 'that
of the lawyer, in the majority of cases,
is to conceal it. The trial of a criminal
case is simply a battle between the at'
lorneys ; those on the side of the prose
cution endeavoring to present evidence
that will convict, no matter how doubt
ful its origin, and those on the other at
tempting to close the mouths of the
prosecution's witnesses and shut out
the evidence ; and the clearer and more
truthful it is, the greater the desire and
the effort to keep it from the jury'
That's what lawyers are paid for, while
the newspapers can measure their sue
cess by their ability . to . present the
truth ; that is what they are paid for.
The criminal lawyer shuns the truth ;
the' newspaper seeks it. Which, think
you, is more likely to find it? ; ' ' -1
Dr. Roberts, stated clerk of the Pres
Dyterian general assemDiy, in $n
analysis of the returns of the census of
.1890, shows that about 63 per cent of the
voters of the United States are not iden
tified with any church whatever, and
that Protestants and Roman Catholics
together, even in their nominal showing.
have less than 38 per cent of the voters
According to this classification,' 27.7 per
cent of the voters are members of Protes
tant churches, and 10.7 per cent are
members of the Roman Catholic church
In the South Atlantic states the, Protes
tants have 50 per cent, and the Catholics
but 4.2 per cent, while in "the North
Atlantic states 20.6 of the' voters are
Protestants and 19.4 per ceqt are Cath
olics. New England had more Catholics
than Protestants a remarkable change.
In Massachusetts the Catholics have 30.8
per cent of the voters, and the Protestant
sects together only 15. 1 per cent. In
the Western division, 7.3 per cent of the
voters are Protestant communicants and
12.6 per cent are Catholics. The figures
for Oregon are 11.4 per cent of Protes
tants, and of Catholics 8.9 per cent. In
Washington, Protestants 8.4 per cent.
Catholics 4.8 per cent.
The dispatches speak of the engage
ment of Mr. Mackay and Miss Consuelo
Vanderbilt as "a match between two of
the most celebrated American families."
This shows how little that newsgatherer
knows of our American celebrities. The
James family, which first came into
prominence shortly after the close of the
war, and the Cook family, but recently
operating in Kansas, Oklahoma and In
dian Territory, are the most celebrated
of our robber barons. The Vanderbilt
and Mackay families gathered more
wealth, but they are not in it for fame
or glory. ' " ' "
We received a communication from
Sherman county this morning caAjng
attention to the. fact that circuit court
meets at Moro Monday, and that the
suit of the E. O. Land Company against
farmers of that neighborhood for rent
will be up for trial. Our correspondent
scores the company, but we fancy the
jury that willl examine into the matter
will be able to do impartial justice be
tween the parties We refer oar corres
pondent to another editorial in this is
sue, which will give our reasons for not
publishing this communication.
Nearly every paper we pick up has
something to say concerning the recent
legislative deadlock, and asserts that
the proof is obtainable that this candi
date pledged himself this way or that
way, and then with a mighty rip up the
back, said candidate is given a rest on
til the next issue. The matter is settled,
and for heaven sake, brethren, remem
ber what the old Don said to Sancho
Panza at the wonderful adventure of
the fulling-mill, and let go.
