THE SURRATT MYSTERY,
A dispatch from AVashlngton to The
" It is the opinion of persons high in
authority and influence hero that tho
trial 01 Johull.surrattwlll bo ultimate
ly nbandoncd. Tho impression is that
tnero is n general conviction prcvanin
in official quarters that tho unfortunate
Mrs. Surratt was not guilty of tho crimo
lor which &110 was executed, anu mat
tho trial 01 her son would only-result in
moro clearly establishing that lact
Such n dovolopment, of course, would
not bo relished by tho Administration
and others concerned in tho trial and
condemnation of tho mother. Thcro is
another cause, however, not very credit
able, assigneu why the President would
not wish tho trial to occur; but, as it
would casta deep slur upon tno reputa
tion 01 ono who lately has not been
sleeping on & bed of roses, I refrain
lromgivingitpubiicity. it migiitoniy
bo creating nnotner sensation, ami, per
haps, without justification, for thegratl
ficntion of scandal-mongers. However
this may be, it is not believed that tho
evidence 111 possession 01 tno uovern
ment will warrant tho trial of John
Wo think it timo tosav that tho many
mysteries surrounding this Surratt caso
should cease. Since theassassiuationof
President Lincoln, we have had endless
surmises, and maKCsiiiits, and tricks
in referonco to tho crlnio and thoso
accused. Inthoilrst place, we had tho
uovornment proclamations accusing
Davis, and Sanders, and Thompson o
tho assassination. Then wo had tho
trials, in winch theso persons wero
soiemuiy nrraigncu as participants 111
that crime. There are lew things that
our children will less caro to read than
that bcll'samo trial, with Its wayward
and rudo justice. Then canio tho swift
execution of Mrs. Surratt, although
rayne, an assassin uy 111s own con
fess Ion, asserted her innocence. Wohavo
nlso had tho imprisonment of Davis ns
an assassin if thcro Is any valuo in tho
judgment 01 tno commission that tried
ravno nud his companions. His ton
tinned imprisonment without trial, or
tno pretense oi trial, lsinitseiia mystery
andashauio. Then canio Gen. Butler'!
famous speech, bliowing that tho diary
of Bootli had been suppressed. 011 tho
conspiracy trial, and tho declaration of
a great lawyer that -Mrs. surratt had
been Innocently hanged. Immediately
canio nn announcement that tho War
Department would print tho Bootli
diary so soon as something or other
occurred. Well : timo enough has
passed for twenty things to happen
and nothlngls heard of tho Booth dlarv
Finally, wo havo tho most provoking
deiays about tno trial 01 surratt. with
an aniioiiiiceinent that ho is not to bo
tried, becauso tho trial might establ si
tho fact tlint Mrs. Surratt was not guilty

It Is tlmo that this Juggling should

Is only a part of tho Juggling that has

Lincoln. That tragedy is ono of tho
most mysterious In tho annalsof crimo.
Thero issomethlng hidden that wocravo
to know. What it is wo cannot say;
but tho records of tho trial, tho contin
ued imprisonment of Mr. Davis, and
especially the shuttling of tho Govern

Why has not Booth's dlnry been pub
lished? Why Is .Georgo N. Sanders
not demanded from tho British Gov

1'iki.im, 1'itANCis M. Thomas, JAron Cukasv,
and William Monmsox, Cojtsrm'r.i:.
GiixtIjKMKn: I propose, after duo
reflection, to answer your verbal and
written communications 011 tno subject
of n renewal of my licenso as an Inn
Keener in Catawissa. Vou staled when
you called on 111001120th of Aprll,t'hat you
w ould consent to a renewal 01 my license
for the coming year if 1 would sign a
paper which you had prepared, which
contained several engagements regard
ing tho management of my business.
On tho day following, I received n com
munication lrom your secretary, in
forming 1110 that you wero In "final
session" as n Committee, at a particular
place named, and ready to receive any
proposition I might have to make.
Tho proposition 1 liavo to make to tho
Court and to tho public In applying for
n renewal of my license, Is tho only one
Which 1 would maico to you 11 your au
thority to demand 0110 should bo admit
ted. That proposition Is, that my House
shall bo kept and my business conduc
ted in strict comorinity with tno laws
of tho Commonwealth. For by those
laws Court, Inn Keeper and Citizen uro
equally hound, and neither can require
of tho others, or of cither of them, any
engagement or act which those laws do
not nutnorizo or proscribe.
But I do not admit your authority to
enter into n compact or agreement with
mo concerning tho management of my
House as a Houo of public entertain
ment, nor any obligation ot ilutv rest
ing upon mo to submit to your demands.
it is uiKieniabio tout your autiionty is
belf-assutned, being wholly unknown to
law or usage, irom which 11 louowstnat
its exercise is unwarranted and gratuit
ous, and that its recognition by 1110
would bo Improper.
xiio law lias contcrred upon tno sev
eral Courts of Quarter Sessions of tho
Peaco throughout tho Commonwealth,
thopower of licensing Inns nnd Taverns,
upon prescribed conditions, has charged
upon those Courts the duty of licensing
mem wiicn necessary to tno accommo
dation of the public and tho entertain
ment 01 strangers nnd travelers, nnd it
does not rest with volunteer Commit
tees, or with individual citizens, to de
termine wiicn or wnero tney snail bo
established or the conditions of their
And that this arrangement of power
in regard to licensing public houses, is
wise and proper, is plainly shown by
your paper of conditions presented for
my signature, 'mat paper proceeds up
on tho theory that you can arrange tho
terms and conditions of my license In a
better manner than they can bo fixed by
tho Court under the law; but tho paper
Itself refutes this theory nud explodes
In tho first phice, it provides that li
quors shall not bo sold to minors, nor
sold upon the Sabbath (l;iy,ntmy House;
requirements which aro wholly unne
cessary and superfluous, becauso tlioy
nrecoutalned In thecxNtiug law. Your
dictation and my acceptance of them
will add nothing to their obligation.
Again, by tho law liquors are not to be
sold to persons of " known intemperate
habits;" by your paper they nro not to
bo bold to " habitual drinkers," an ex
pression which if it means no moro than
tho law is unnecosfary, and if It does
mean moro is in contempt of tho law as
well as of uncertain signification.
Another provision is, "that no game
or ehanco shall bo played in tho build
ing or upon tho premises." Thero aro
many games of chance, perfectly Inno
cent in eharacter, which you would cx
eludo from my House nnd premises un
der this condition, for no reason that 1
can perceive, except to gratify u sour
nnd puritanical temper, or to exhibit
tho superiority of vour wisdom over lhn
wisdom of tho law which eonllnes Itself
to prohibitions of ganibllngln ail lurius.
Gaines which beget covetoit-ness nnd
endanger tho welfare of individuals In
regard to their morals and property are
rightly forbidden ; but your proposed
criisado against backgammon and other
games of moro ninu-ement. skill or re
creation, might bo thought simply ub
surd If it wero not also fanatical and
Another condition proscribed by your
paper is, that no liquors shall bo sold
upon my proml.-es except at tho bar,
which Is to bo located upon tho ground
floor. I suppose this condition is bor
rowed from fc.01110 scliemo or plan regu
lating sales of liquors In cities whero,
Iu crowded parts, thero Is great oppor
tunity for illicit traffic and evasion of
tho law. Laws or taxation, ns well as
laws fur tho control of tho Courts over
sales, reqiiirostrlngent regulations tliero
which aro quite inapnjicablo nnd unne
cessary If not ridiculous in country dis
tricts. But your prohibition of sales at
other places than tho bar enumerates
nnlv 4llwtfllr.fl itioH nr ,tnmntf 11...
oniy "distil oi ma t or domestic n
uors," omitting wines altogether which
uro not of domestic inaiiufaetiire. This
Important omission proclaims the Im
perfection of your work and mav well
exclto doubt of your competency for tho
task you hnvo undertaken, to wit : tho
amendment of tho law.
Finally, your paper requires that I
shall "do all in my power to prohibit
tho uso of profane or vulgar language iu
nnd around my buildings." Profano
swearing Is punlshablo by tho laws of
tho State, and ought to bo discouraged
overywhoro by thoMtizcn. I agree that
tho habit Is too common, audit Is well
known that tho law against It is seldom
enforced. But I am not tuvnro that tho
obligation is greater upon mo than upon
either ono of you to Institute- prosecii-
Hons for tho enforcement of tho law, Or
to reprimand profanity In tho streets
"around my buildings. As to tho pro
hibition by mo ofn vulgar language" by
my ostler, cook chambermaid and
guests, you propose it duty somewhat
(lellcnto In lis naltiro mid uncertain ns
to tho extent of Its obligation. Tho
education of many persons who nro
titled for employment In the Hoip-e or
stables of nuy Inn Keeper, Is Imperfect,
or, to two u common expression, "has
been neglected," and elevated or exact
language Is not tobo expected from them.
And yet whilo they nro addicted to
"vulgar" forms of speech which aro to
be dcely deplored, they ore found com
petent to perform nil the duties of their
employments with diligence and fideli
ty. Besldo these, there .nro many trav
ellers whoso language is opou to similar
criticism or censure. But unfortunately
all theso persons, whether employees or
travellers, aro seiisltlvo to rebuke and
disposed to repel or resent such snlttta
ry prohibitions upon their vulgar lan
guage ns you desire moto onl'orco "in
and around my building," Therefore so
long ns their speccn does not neconio
obscene, profnno or blasphemous, I sup
pose it must bo tolerated, although de
ficient in tlioio elements of excellciieo
which wo would desire.
Tho penalty you propose fora violation
byinoofnny of thoforegolngcondltions,
is, "a forfeiture of license" though
how such forfeiture is to bo enforced is
hot stated ov enlly Foen. Tho Court
will enforce only the law, and vour
own authority to revoke 11 license is as
yet unknown to the community and is
not likely to bo asserted hereafter.
1 have thusexanilned your panerofcon-
dltloiu In order to expose to you Its truo
character and to disabuse your minds of
the impression that you can act usefully
or wiselynsn Committee upon tho ques
tionofiireuewalofiny license, hi making
my application for leavo to continue
my business 1 turn from you to tho pro
per tribunal composed ot judges wnoso
indopendance nnd learning quality
them for duties which you would usurp.
I submit to their jurisdiction whilo 1
deny and repel yours. But in speaking
plainly and frankly ns 1 havo done, I
do not Intend to Impeach your motives
nor to deny that a vigilant attention bv
private citizens to tho management of
public House in necessary and proper.
And I iliall be content to bo admonish
ed at nil times by cither court or citizen
regarding any irregularity of manage
ment or conduct in my business Justly
obnoxious to the censure of law or of
public opinion, nnd shall be happy to
comply full v, or to the extent of my
ability, Willi me demands ot botn.
