Editor - and - Proprietor
The Express is no party organ
it is independent io all things,
and neutral in nothing. We pro
pope to support only good men for
office this year, regardless of poli
tics or party.
The question of whether or not
stock shall be allowed to run at
large in Benton county is to be
Toted on at the coming election.
It ill be snpporled by farmers in
the thickly settled neighborhoods,
and those residing in the hills and
foothills and who depend io a large
measure upon outside rauge, will
The Express has entered upon
its tenth year. While the paper
is not what we want it to be, and
what we hope to make it, yet at
the present it is as good as our sop-
port justifies us in macing it, but
during this year we hope to add
several improvements to our office
aod give our readers a better paper
than we ever have heretofore.
In an article published recently
in the Scientific American is the
following statement, referring to
the people of the United States:
"We have grown and prospered as
no other nation has, until to-day
we do one-third of the world's man
ufacturing, one-third of its mining,
one-fifth of its farming, and pos
sess one-fifth of its wealth." The
reader will notice that the propor
tion of wealth is the same as the
- .farming, which proves conclusively
that the farmers of the United
States, should, in justice, own more
of the wealth than the other class
es. But is this the case? No.
Pernicious legislation has allowed
trusts and syndicates to rob the
farmers and also to rob the labor
ing men of all classes. We are a
great nation great in evil deeds
as well as in good. The political
parties most soon do more for the
people in general than heretofore,
if this country is to have prosper
ity in future.
There is one relic of barbarism
, that is being used in this enlight
ened age that should be abolished.
That is the grand jury. There is
no possible reason why this relic
of barbarism should be perpetuated.
In the medieval times when lords
and borons ruled and swayed, the
grand jury might have had its
place along with the rack and
screw and other method of torture,
bm it has no place in the present
enlightened age. This system of
the law permits not only prosecu
tion but encourages persecution. A
perfectly innocent man may have
his name dragged through the mire
of secret session of a grand jury
and have bis name befouled by
such suspicions that will all but
cause an indictment, and be has
absolutely no defense. There is no
reason for the existence of the
grand jury system. All cases which
are bound over by justices of the
peace had just as well be bound
directly over to the trial court.
There is no use in putting him
through the grand jury farce. A
person having knowledge of a
crime had just as well swear out a
warrant as to appear before a grand
jury and make a complaint. If
the magistrate finds reasonable
grounds for the belief of guilt he
could bind the prisoner direct to
trial without regard to the grand
jury. The only function which the
grand jury seems to perform to a
nicety is to pile up costs against
the countv. Toledo Leader.

A DOG'S GRATITUDE.
VtM Animal Lnnwl tn Itapoct Hta for
In Mrs. Olive Thome Miller's volume,
"Our Home rets," Is told a avory of a
dear collie dog and his gratitude. The
dog, it upnoars, was a great put In the
family of a colnniul soldier, and was
particularly noted for his antipathy to
Indians, whom he delighted to track.
On one campaign against the French,
the dog insisted on accompanying his
master, although his feet were in a
terrible condition from hHring been
frosen the previous winter. During
the fight, which ended in the famous
Braddock defeat, the dog was ever be
side Us master; but when it was over
they became separated, and the soldier,
concluding that his pet had been
killed, went home without him.
Some weeks later, however, the dog
appeared in hia old homo, separated
from his battle-field by many miles of
thick forest. Be was tired and worn,
bus over his sore feet were fastened
seat moccasins, showing that he had
been among Indiana, who had been
kind to him. Moreover, he soon proved
that h had changed his mind about
hia former foe, for neither bribes nor
threats could ever again induce him to
track an Indian.
