'Tub St. Louis Republican states
tho case accurately, whore, sptuk
ing of improvemeut bills before
Congress, it says: "The plan upon
which the river and harbor bills
are habitually constructed, fully
illustrates the evil to be avoided.
Those advocating appropriations
for a really needed and justifiable
improvement, have found that the
easiest way to "procure votes for it
is to virtually buy them with the
public money, i. e., to vote aid to
districts not entitled to it in return
for the votes of those districts.
And Congressmen, in numerous
instances, refuse to furnish their
votes unless they are paid for in
this way. The result is that the
river and harbor appropriation bill
is an annual disgrace to Congress."
That is one of tho factors in the
problem of delay always apparent
in committee action on the im
provement bills relative to this
coast. Fortunately tho urgent
need of the aid asked for in the
matter of the Columbia river bar,
and the presence on the committee
of two Pacific coast Congressmen
may hasten favorable action in this
matter beyond former years. It is
not in talking "buncombe'" on the
floor of the House that a Congress
man secures an appropriation. It
is work in the committee room that
has the greatest effect.
'ot si Trcsenl Tarty isinc.
The State, a Democratic paper
published in Richmond, Va., says
that "the Republican party has
Free Traders but it is largely
composed of Protectionists, and
its policy is thoroughly protective.
The Democratic party, on the other
hand, has Protectionists, but it is
largely composed of Free Traders,
and its policy is thoroughly free."
There is a good deal of truth in
that, and yet to one familiar with
the political Shibboleths of the
last quarter of a century, 'tis evi
dent that free trade or protection
in that time never assumed any
prominent part in political tenets.
The Democratic party has tho
credit of being a "free trade''
party, because years and years
ago, while yet the -country was in
its infancy, tho cry "'free trade and
sailors' rights," found favor with
Democratic leaders. "When the
irrepressible and inevitable war
fare does come between protective
ruination and free trade preserva
tion, it will be as in all similar
cases intelligence and sober good
sense on one side; tricks and job
bery on the other; and the free
trade advocates will deservedly
and Ktissian ner-
iocutioii of the Jews shows that
though tliu world moves, yet in
some places it moves very slowly.
"Tis a disgrace to the Government
that cannot crush such unfair
action. Any sincere form of re
ligious worship is to be respected,
and if it is so that "by their fruit
yc shall know them," tho class that
hold their ancient Hebrew faith
are to be respected rather than
reviled. Throngh centuries ot
persecution" and wrong, of trials
and chastenings, of plunder, con
fiscation, slaughtering and disper
sion, they have held to their tenets
of belief, have clung to what they
believe is right, have in all coun
tries, and at all times made good,
law abiding, tax-paying citizens,
and in this afternoon of the nine
teenth Qentury it illy becomes any
nation callinj; itself civilized to
attempt any revival of the troubl
ous times when the followers of
Abraham were in daily peril of
'Tis claimed that Georgia and
Louisiana are eager to break away
and join Virginia in the effort to
ridlhe south of the baneful "solid
ity" that was the boast of Watter
.son in 1870.
The Gnilcnu Case.
The prosecution in the Guitcau
trial was opened by Davidge, who
read and then elaborated the pray
ers of the Government, which ask
the judge to instruct the jury that
if prisoner knew at the time of the I
shooting the difference between
right and wrong he was at that
time sane and responsible. Dav
idge with the prayers in his hand,
said in low but distinct tones and
measured language, "and that they
consisted, first of the" above defini
tion of sanity; second, of the de
claration that if prisoner possessed
ability to so distinguish between
right and wrong, no irresistible!
passion or impulse, no uncontrolla
ble desire, no moral depravity,
would excuse his act; third, a de
claration that the standard of in
sanity must be that of law; fourth,
that no delusions, ability to dis
tinguish between right and wrong
being preserved, would excuse
prisoner. Davidge thought tho
prayers of defense bearing on
points contained in" the prayers of
prosecution ought not to be enter
tained for a moment. He said
that the law drew the lino of
responsibility for crime soinewhei'o.
It had not been defined until the
judges of England of 184o, at the
request of the house of lords, laid
down a legal rule defining respon
sibility. This rule was the good
old right and wrong test, the rule
of common sense. There were"
infinite degrees of intelligence.
Think of the illustrious victim
of this prisoner on one hand and
this assassin on the other. The
law drew no line between low
degree of intelligence on one
hand and the highest on the other
in respect of resposibility for
crime. This prisoner had a keen
portrait of an imbecile unt 1 he
went upon the stand and tore him
self into shreds and atoms. A man
might be. peculiar, and might
even be partially insane, but if he
arose to the point of intelligence
which enabled him to know the
difference between right and wrong
and that w.hat he was doing was
wrong, then he was responsible
for the wrong.
Davis then stated the Magnatum
case, in. which five questions on
the subject of insanity had been
submitted to the judges of Eng
land. Three of these questions
had direct bearing on this
case. The first question was
as to the responsibility of a
person for an act when at the time
of committing the act he knew he
was acting contrary to law but did
the act complained of with a view
that he was under the influence of
an insane delusion of redressing a
supposed injury or of producing
some supposed'public benefit. The
answer of all the judges excepting
Chief Justice -Moil was that they
were of the opinion that, notwith
standing the party accused diil act
with the view that he was under
the insane delusion of redressing
some supposed injury or of pro
ducing some supposed public ben
efit, he was nevertheless punisha
ble according to tho nature of the
crime committed, if he knew at
the time of committing such crime
that he was acting contrary to law.
Riqiiard Henry Dana, Jr., who
died last Saturday was born in
Massachusetts in 1815. He was
bred to the law, but in conse
quence ol ill health ho went to
sea, the voyage resulting in a'
work "Two Years Before the
Mnst," which has been read by
hundreds of thousands. In S11
