Another element to the longevity of
this Day 1 the growing etclusion, in
its observance, of those things that
tend to perpetuate sectional animosi
ties, divisional hatred! and bitter
nesaes, and to bomiliate a fallen foe.
These things are increasingly elimi
nated. And this constitutes a ground
for hoping that the delay of the in
stitution may be far off. Evan P.
hoghes, In hii address last Sunday
morning to the G. A. R. veterans,
insisted strongly that the spirit of the
observance and the conduct of veter-
' lltl Xt am innn li niasa l
mt m new I4VH wmw W UV BUU llfl II VJ
bind together the sections rather
than drive them apart. Ha iostancod
the well-known fact that It was L'nlou
soldiers who first decorated the graves
of Confederate warriors who had died
in Northern prisons. It is unques
tionably a fact that splendid progress
ba been achieved In the healing of
woonds and the seooring of a better
understanding. Irreconcilable there
moat certainly are, and will be, a
few of thsiu, until death put an end
to their spattering. But, generally
(peaking, men are now reoof oiling
the great fact that the battle of the
berocaof 01-6S not ooly bleased the
ortb, bat also blessed the Sooth,
tad indeed blessed the world. The
South by th war,' so far from baring
lost anything, has gained everything.
Mo man ever rendered th Sooth a
greater aervlo than did A bra baa
Llnooln when p dipped hi pen in
Ink and dashed off hi Proclamation
of Emancipation that knocked th
shackles off from three millons of
slave. And what iguHoant and
pregnant omen of good is th fact
that the finest oology of oor martyred
President ever pronounced was by a
Southerner, the lamented Henry W.
Grady, of Atlanta! The Sooth cheer
fully admit today thai she' rejoice
thai slavery 1 no more. With
sweeness and wbolesomeoess and
tenderness and conciliatorines a
e lament in It observance, we say.
Memorial Day will not soon perish
from the way. May it live loog to
teach patriotism and high manhood
and noble womanhood In a free and
united country nncursed by section
alism and free from fratrloidal jeal
ousy and clannlshness.
TKIAL BY JURY.
The right of trial by jury is no
doubt one of the bulwarks of Anglo
Saxon lilierty but the meti-oda em
ployed in selecting a jury in modern
criminal trials is tending to bring it
luto disrepute with all thinking tueo
and women. The ancient theory of
the Jury wan one entirely different to
what goes to-day. Then It was tliHt
the jury wss composed sutirely of
men who were familiar with all the
facts in the case. They knew the
parties concerned personally and had
generally livitd in tho neighborhood
for year. The more thev knew about
the facta in the caxe, the better jury
men they would umtu'. The amount of
it all was thnt the witnesses tried
the case. If one of the parties was of
a nieao, hoggish disposition, thev
knew it and it went into their con
mi ration oi tho venlict. Petog
neighbors to the parlies, they knew
all the little tricks aud weakness
aud everything had its tuflueoce ou
the verdict. Now this method
evideotly gave too much power to
prejudice but the modern meth.ii goes
tot) far the other way. Now a man
disqualifies himself if be baa die
ensued the case in any manner oi ex-
pressed an opinion and the more he
knows about the facts of the case, the
worse it gets and he is rifct supposed to
take into consideration anything be
learns about the case outside '.ot the
courtroom. Recently juryman went
around and looked 'at ! stairway that
was figuring in a dispute and the
judge adjourned court nntil he coo Id
decide wbekfcer to go on with th
trial or not. If it keep on each state
will have to train op a special body of
cititeos to merely serve on Juries.
They wil hav to be kept behind
stonewalls, not allowed to read news
paper or any bock nnder fifty vrar
old, not b:ong to ny lodge or aecrel
