There is law-making in the
Murray verdict. A code as ef
fective and authoritative as the
law evolved by legislative enact
ment is the outgrowth of such
incidents. Though unwritten, it
is law, and is the product of
civilization and man’s growing
conception of what is right and
what wrong. It is the uncon
sciously created statute o f that
final arbiter and court, public
By it, seduction, under promise
of marriage, stands condemned.
Orlando Murray punished that
offense with death, and a jury
refuses to condemn his act. It
refuses to permit him to be
punished in any way, though he
committed murder under the
civil code when he slew the man
who wronged his sister. It is
only one more of a thousand
verdicts of its kind, rendered
since man started up the scale
of civilization. It is only one
further step in establishing the
authority and majesty of the un
written code. It is well, per
haps, because it is the only
means o f invoking a penalty to
fit the crime.
hardly hang the worst seducer,
even were legislative statute pro
vided. Some states p r o v i d e
capital punishment for rape but
convictions are practically un
known because of the inborn
sympathy of the men who sit in
the jury box.
So, a brother with stern pur
pose, a cool head and a loaded
revolver are of necessity the
only means o f reaching the low
hounds who gamble on woman’s
honor and revel in woman’s
downfall. That is why there is
an Orlando Murray, and why
there is another solemn approval
of the unwritten code.—Portland
