In the case of Richard Hinkle, ac
cusect of murdering Scott, a book
agent for the J. K. Gill Company of
Portland, about two years ago, for
bis money, and burning the body, a
jury in the circuit court at Canyon
City on the 23d returned a verdict
of "manslaughter," and the accused
was sentenced to fifteen years in the
penitentiary. The verdict of man
slaughter was perfectly absurd. If
Hinkle was guilty, he was guilty of
murder, and if there was not evi
dence enough to convict him of
murder, there was certainly no evi
dence to convict him of manslaughter,
for killing a man and burning the
body to conceal the crime do not
stand for any form of manslaughter.
In the case of Professor Webster,
Of Harvard college, who was hanged
iu .1850 for the murder of Dr. Park
man, while there was a general con
viction that Webster had struck
Parkman a fatal blow in a fit of an
ger, nevertheless the proof that he
had deliberately tried to destroy the
body of his victim was deemed proof
ot murder, and of murder he was
. justty convicted 'and justly executed.
But in the case of Hinkle the charge,
was that he and one Bare murdered
Scott for his money and burned the
body to conceal the crime. There
was no suspicion of a quarrel; the
accused were either absolutely inno
cent or absolutely guilty of ' murder;
and not at all of manslaughter.
Therefore, Bare, who is serving a
life sentence for his part in the
crime, and Hinkle, who gets off with
fifteen years, as guilty of manslaugter,
represent a ver7 gross miscarriage of
justice, for if there was evidence be
yond a doubt that these two men
murdered Scott for his money, they
"weie guilty of a most barbarous
murder and , deserved death; and if
there was not sufficient evidence to
show beyond a reasonable doubt that
they murdered Scott, they should
have been acquitted. '
This verdict either means that the
state has suffered a great wiong done
by the jury in convicting of man
slaughter a man accused of cold
blooded murder for the purpose ot
theft, or it means that the accused
have been grossly wronged by being
found guilty of a crime of which
they were not accused and of which
they could not have been guilty,
since the evidence was not sufficient
to sitisfy the jury that a murder had
been committed. Yet a man ac
cused of killing his victim for money
and burniug his body is either inno
cent of murder or guilty of murder;
he is not guilty of manslaughter.
There is often a case where it is a
nice question whether the accused
who is indicted for murder is guilty
as indicted, or guilty only of man
slaughter; but when the charge is
murder and srobbery, with burning
of the body to conceal the crime,
there is no honest justification for a
compromise verdict. The law clear
ly definies the function of the jury,
and it has no right to render a ver
dict that is clearly false. .'
It is no exaggeration to say that
not a few juries of Oregon and
Washington, as well as' of many
other states of the union, find their
verdicts, not in accordance with the
facts, but in sccordance with their
WAR WITH SPAIN.
Spain would make a sorry warlike
stand against the United States, says
the Spokesman-Eeyiew. Even now
it finds itself hardly able to hold
Cuba against the insurgents, and if
it went to war with the United
States, H could not hold that island
for a month.
. Spain has exliausied herself iu the
present struggle with the rebellious
islanders. Her treasury is drained,
her' financial credit is gone; the en
thusiasm of her young men has been
chilled by the long struggle, and
thousands of her brave sons sent out
to support Campos and Weyler will
never more behold . the sunny slopes
of old Castile.
It is not surprising that two ad
ministrations at Washington have
hesitated to provoke a war with a
nation so crippled, so helpless, and
yet so proud and defiant. If we go
to war with Spain, it will be a war
with a desperate nation. The result,
of course, cannot be doubted, and
outside of Spain, no one in Europe
questions that the United ' States
would be victor. But it is to be
hoped that the administration will
devise some way to end the Cuban
struggle without going to war with
A few weeks ago the editor waa taken
with a very severe cold that caused him
to be in a most miserable condition. It
was undoubtedly a bad case of la grippe
and recognizing it as dangerous he took
immediate steps to bring abont a speedy
care. From the advertisement of Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy and the many
good recommendations included therein,
we concluded to make a first trial of the
medicine. To say that it was satisfac
tory in its results, is putting it very
mildly, indeed. It acted like magic and
the result was a speedy and permanent
care. We have no hesitancy in recom

for any season, but perhaps more gener

feeling prevails, when the liver is torpid
