Whose name and whose marvelous story
The sons of the desert shall chime.
Where the Nile, her twin sisters embracing'.
Glides onward by gory Khartoum,
There Cordon, the foe ever facing,
In Fancy's dim vision shall loom.
Frnn tlie ramparts, with gaze cold and steady,
He scanned the horizon afar.
To advance, to repel, ever ready.
He seemed like the gcDius of War!

Whose banners the desert winds fann'd,
'Gainst whose ranks the wild sons ofthose regions
In vain dashed with saber in hand.
And he's g jno! for the traitor had sold him
Sold Gordon, the pure and the brave;
But soon, o'er the ruinsthat hold him,

Human law is a written compact by
humanity with itself, for the better reg
ulation of the relations that shall exist
between the individual atoms of society,
and when it fails in strict and impar
tial execution, it becomes a painful
farce and a mockery of that justice
which should be the basis of all the
inter-commerce of life. That these con
ditions exist among us to a very grave
extent is too obvious to call for state
ment. The workings of our present
form of criminal jury system, which
has grown too eld fr the needs of our
modern civilization; tha ignorance of
the ordiuary juror of his duties, and
his general sympathy with the culprit,
which is so subtly made available by
the efforts ot the hired advocate; the
often too freely used license of the pul
lie prosecution in withdrawing well
grounded charges of crime, ia a great
uuniber of cases open to the suggestion
of complicity and arrangements for a
consideration to these may be added
the well-known marketable character of
thedetective system all over the land,
and the readiness of those sutferins
from criminal practices to compromise
and condoue the crime for a money
equivalent, or from an unwillingness to
assume the burden and doubts attend.
ng prosecution.
These, and other causes, go far to
ards the crippling of all justice, the
beggaring and lowering of the value ol
ouesty, and literally offering a pre.
mi'tm for crime. In many of the older
nations, where representative govern
nicut is not so pronounced in theory or
ractice, the judicialQclions of courts
of law are much less open te the bane
ful influences, which with us lead to
immunity for the wealthy and influen
tial criminal, as compared to that of
the poor, and which gives credence
to the theorem that an empty pocket is
the unpardonable crime. In the civil
lzed nations ot Hurope the public pros
ecutors dare not dismiss cases nor will
the sufferer from crime be permitted to
compromise with the criminal or his
agent. Many cases might be cited
where even nobility itself have
had to Buffer the extreme penalty for
their misdeeds against society, equally
with the poor. This would go to show
hat iu those countries law is less a re
specter of persons than with us. Cer
tainly there seems no good reason why
such disparity should obtain to our dis
Our legal fraternity should he equal
in ability and should be held to as high
a moral responsibility as those of any
other laud. Our judicial minds have
certainly reached an eleyated, plane in '
the science of not only State but nation
al and international jurisprudence.
But it would appear that with us law
and its practice have become too much
the seicirce of "glorious uncertainty"
loaded down with technicality, and
handicapped too often with considera
tions political and personal, which
greatly need the purification of a more
wholesome atmosphere, and a general
simplification ot process. As a people
we are luaily noted for our facility of
invention in all things practical and iu
the invention of pleas to nullify law,
we most emphatically lead the world
Iu our legal practice we have all the
phases of insanity, hereditary, teuipor
aiy, circumstantial, emotional and
moral, brought as barriers to the just
punishment of crime, and to the relcas.
ing of its perpetrators unpunished upon
society, livery one is said to be in
sane upon some point, and on the same
grounds all crime ina be summarized
as some phase of insanity, and the world
one great madhouse. Nevertheless, as
self-preservation is acknowledged as the
iirst law of nature, and the second law
by natural sequence, the preservation
of society which is its civilized concen
tration, it would seem most tit and
worthy that the surplus acumcu ot our
great legal intellects should be turned
to account iu the invention and devel
opment of means, whereby all law
should be simplified both iu theory and
praciice, so that the most humble mem
ber of the commonalty couUt conipre
heud its bearings upou himself. This
must necessarily be the primax-y object
of tLe divine law, of which it is our .oo
human boast that human Jaw is an elab
oration. As it really appears on the
record from the case of "Jarndyce vs.
Jarndyce," to the latest complaint be
fore the smallest Justice Court, it is a
labyrinth of bazy mysteries and entan
gled sinuosities, that lead. not to justice,
but to juggling. Law should knit so
ciety by its simplicity and not tend to
disintegrate it by its ponderous and
forbidding uncertainty.
The almost incessant accumulation of
mnthods w hereby costs may be added,
often becoming much greater than the j
original cause, is a phase of affairs that
should be purged from all honest civil
practice. In criminal cases, the par
doning power in the hands of any one
man, anu ne a political aspirant, can
not be considered other than a danger
ous indulgence, very often leading to
most questionable results and to the
utter perversion of mercy.
The Executive of a State may be ever
so sincere and honest in his purpose,
lie may also he fully alive to the high
and far-reaching nature of the power of
clemency entrusted to him, and earnest
ly watchful ef its use. Still, from tbe
very nature of his position and the mul
J tiplicity of bis duties, he is too apt to
be made the vehicle for carrying oat
the selfish and sinister designs of his
personal and political surroundings.
Every member of tbe human family
owes a sacred duty to that family, and ,
that is, that he shall ever act as a con
ssientious conservator of public morals,
and help, by his best ability, the admin
istration of even-handed justice, pure
and undefined. Whosoever fails in this
uty, insomuch fails in his highest re
sponsibility. This condoning of crime,
compounding of felony, and promiscu
ous pardoning may be mercy to the in
dividual, but tbe result is a very grave
and serious injustice to the cettinion
weal. It tendto the breaking-down of
all distinctive barriers between right
and wrong, between good and evil, and
demoralizes the healthful education pf
the youthful minds that are to become
our men and women ot the future.

Norwalk, Los Angeles Co., Cal.,
February 20, 18S5.
To the Editor of the Lkader:
For the benefit of my many friends iu
Weston who are anxious to hear from
me and would like to know something
of this couutry, I will try in my limited
way to give a few notes of my trip and
a description of the country. ' In com
pany with Mr. A. Reeves I left Weston
January 2Sth, arriving at Portlaud the
next day. Here we met some of our
Weston friends, Messrs. P. A. Worth-
mgton and C. F. Bultinch, who were
purchasing a stock of general merchan
dise for the new firm at Westoa. We
remained here till Friday morning wheu
we took passage on the Queen of the
Pacific for San Francisco. We crossed
the Columbia bar at noon oc February
1st. Lunch was served as we crossed
the bar and many pa rtook of a meagre
repast, but for some cause my appetite
bad tailed quite suddenly. 1 had a
strong desire to get en dock, but the
sea was so rough that all were ordered
in. It wasn't a great while until I was
stretched iu my berth, with no inclina
tion or desire to go anvwhere. I had
resigned myself entirely to the exigen
cies of the occasion and quietly permit
ted nature to take her course. Mr.
Reeves thought it funny to see me in
such a predicament, but he soon sue.
cumbed to the motion of the vessel aud
we both kept eur state-rooms until
reaching the Golden Gate. We landed
at the dock in San Francisco at 5 p. ni.
Tuesday, and it seemed as though we
bad dropped onto a different hemisphere.
It is nice and warm here. Every
thing is' ;rccii end tloaers aie in bloom.
It ail seemed like a new life to me. It
has" been leu yours since I was in Sail
Francisco, and I notice many improve
ments w hich have taken place in that
time. The business men are wide
awake aud never let an opportunity
pass that is to their interest and to the
upbuilding of their city. Not wishing
to weary tha patience of the reader I
will pass on, af:er taking in some of the
mosl nntei' pl:; e-, mii h as Woodward's
Garden, the Ui ited SUIes Mint the
largest i i liij .viiu, and other sights too
numerous to mention. We lett here
Saturday night, taking the emigrant
train, I fur Los Angeles and Mr. Reeves
for Kansas City, bet both traveling ou
the same car as far as Mojave (Mo-har-ve)
Junction. Here Mr. Reeves chang
ed cars, taking the A. & P. R. R. The
accommodations on the Southern Pacific
are very poor, not as good as on other
roads I have traveled over, lhis compa
ny ouly allows you 100 pounds of bag
gage, while other roads allow 150, acd
they crowd all classes, regardless of sex,
into the same car. There are no re
strictions ou smoking aud the China
men take advantage of the privilege and
annoy the rest by smoking opium. On
all other rosds they have a special car
