THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCKAT.BLOOMSBUKG, COLUMBIA COl NTY, PA.
Friday, Doc. 7, 1877.
Two nues were tried in the Quarter Sc
ions of this county last Tuesday which called
to tha attention of lawyers and many other
persons the fact that tho laws in relation to
costs ought to be revised in tome way so that
injustico may not bo dono. Ono of tlicc was
a prosecution fur highway robbery in which
tho jury found a verdict of not Ruilty. This
crinio bciuK a felony ( tha jury hud no contr 1
over the costs. Tho law concerning costs in
inch cases is as follows : "lie it enacted,&c,
That the costs of prosecution accruing on all
bills of indictments chareiuir a party with fel
ony, ignored by the Grand Jury) shall bo paid
by tho county ; and in all cased of conviction
of any felony, all costs shall bo paid forth
with by tho couuty, unless tho party convict'
fd shall pay tho tame ; and in all cases in
which thfl county pays tho costs, It shall havo
power to levy and collect tho same from tha
party convicted, the same as costs in similar
cases are now collectib'c.
In tho Rea Homicide, application was
made to tho Court to order tho county to pay
all cctts accrued in the trial, including the dc
fendauts' witnesses. The Court decided that
the words all cottt in the statute meant only
the costs of provocation, and did not cover tho
costs of the defetvo. This is undoubtedly the
law, but it worked great injustice to many
witnesses brought hero on subpecnas, and
some on attachments who were too poor to
pay their bills whilo here, and who were
obliged to walk homo at tho close of the trial.
But courts must administer the law as it is,
and cannot change it to suit particular cases.
In the highway robbery trial above mention
ed, the defendant was acquitted. He had a
number of witnesses in attendance to show his
innocence of the charge, who wcro compelled
to come, and yet because, the defendant was
unab'e to pay them, they must lose their time
and expenses, because there n no provision in
the statute requiring the county to pay the
defendant's costs in such cases. The county
is only liable where tho statute declares it to
Tho other caso alluded to was an indictment
for falso pretences. The counsel moved to
quash tbo indictment, which motion was sua
tained. In this suit there wcro a number of
witnesses subpoenaed on both sides, and yet
in such cases there is no provision for tho pay
mcnt of their fee. Tho Supreme Court lias
distinctly decided that the county is not liable
for costs on an indictment which is quashed
by the Court. Tho prosecutor cannot be made
to pay them, as there was no judgment of the
Court against him, and the law docs not put
them upon him. The defendant cannot be
held liable, as his witness fees are not part of
tho costs of prosecution.
In criminal cases it appears that witnesses
are obliged to appear, unless sickness or oth
er disability prevents, and on failure to do so,
they can be brought in on an attachment. An
insolvent prosecutor or defendant can there
fore oblige attendance of persons, without
having any means to pay ttiem, and without
giving security for expenses in caso tho costs
fall on him, and it is little satisfaction to know
that either party is undergoing imprisonment
for failure to pay the same. It is true that
persons subpo.'naed may recover from tin
party who served the writ but a judgment on
the docket and additional costs in obtaining
it, air poor pay.
There ought to be a law on our statute
books requiring parties to a criminal pro
ceeding to pay fees and expenses in advance,
or to give security for the payment of ih
same, before attendance of witnesses cm be
compelled. In civil suite the rule is a littl
different. The old practice used to be as
follows: "No witness is bound to appear i
civil cases, unless his expenses for going to,
attending at, and returning from the trial
at the rate fixed by law, be tcudered him at
the time of serving the subpoena; nor if he
appear is he bound to give evidence ti
, such charges are actually paid or tendered.
This is not exactly the law in this State.
If a witness state at the time he is subpoenaed.
that he is unable to pay his traveling and
other expenses, he ought to be furnished
with means to enable him to attend. Oth
erwise, if brought in on an attachment he
can purge himself of contempt of Court by
showing that he was unable to attend by
reason of poverty.
The special session of Congress ended
last Monday at noon, and the regular session
began in tho afternoon. It took seven weeks
to do what ought to have been dono in that
many days. Tho Appropriation Bill whs
passed, but tho Paris exhibition bill, and the
Army and Navy deficiency bills are still pend
ing. The Phila. 7'ime says :
"How, theu, havo tho soven weeks been
passed? In tho presentation and discussion
of disreputable schemes to weaken tho credit
of tho nation; in partisan mud-rolling and
sky-scrapinj that will servo no useful pur
poso ; iu undoing tho good things that hud
been done by the administration in recess, and
iu quickening partisan malignity, that at ono
timo recnied almost dead. The army and uavy
would have been quite as well off, the admin
istration stronger before the people, tho coun
try generally in a moro tranquil condition and
tbo Forlf -fifth Congress much higher in the
estimation of the public had no extra session
been held. The country needs rest and rec
reation after such heated partisan strifeas we
had last winter, and it is to be hoped that its
vacation will never again bo curtailed without
bettor reason than was presented on this uc
If Mr. Edmunds desires an investigation of
tha charges of corruption which havo so unset
tled his temper, doubtless can be accommoda
ted by calling for it at tho proper time, lint,
as offered, his resolution was a mare trick,
and that it was so understood is shown to
some extent by the fact that such Republi
cans as Christiancy and Matthews voted with
the Democrats in the negative. It is a little
singular that gentlemen who havo set so
quietly for weeks in c'oso companionship with
a man indicted for felony should now be iu
haste to act upon matters of newspaper gos

The l'rfuldmt's Message.
Tho follow In arc the points of the Presi
dent's message : It first treats of Southern
flairs, reciting tho action of tho President
in tho Stntes of Louisiana and South Caro
lltin, arguing the wisdom of hi course and
saying that his action was necefsary, Consti
tutional and right ; that tho cO'tct In these
States has been good j that peace has been
restored, public credit has Improved and out
rages have ceased.
The mossage next treats of the finances.
On this question the President believes In
a silver and gold currency and condemns any
attempt to Impair the ob'igatlons of the
government by a failure to pay them In gold
and the substitution of silver or greenbacks.
It Is strong on this subject, but gives no in
dications of the extent to which he favors
silver, whether a legal-tender for a greater or
less amount, He refers to the report of the
Secretary of the Treasury, and approves the
recommendations of Mr. Sherman, and it
is very certain the financial views of tho two
gentlemen are very much alike. Tho Sec
rctary expresses his belief that he can, with
the present law, resume specie payments In
1879 according to the resumption act, and
lie asks no further legislation to that end,
rtoth the President and Secretary believo
that $300,000,000 of greenbacks may remain
In circulation, and will act on that be
Ilcf. On the subject of foreign affairs the Pres
ident says that pence exists between the
United States and all foreign nations. Ho
devotes considerable space to the Mexican
frontier troubles, recites the condition of af
fairs that led to the celobrated order to Oen
eral Or 1 and defends the order on the ground
that it was necessary to preserve tha lives of
American citizens. Nothing that the ad
ministration has done was done with hostile
or warlike intentions, but it is pretty clearly
iutimated that if war comes it will not be
declined on tho part of the United States.
On the question of civil service the raw
sago is briefer than might have been ex
pected. It will give the Impression that
something has been cut out of the document
on this subject. It gives no new light what
ever, but reference may be had to the Cm
cinnati platform, the letter of acceptance,
etc. There is certainly nothing on this que
tion that will give offense to Senators or
party men, and nothing that will gratify
them. The President shows no desire to
contend with Senators, but indicates a will
Ingress for them to do as they please with
bis nominations, believing that his duty
ends when be makes them.
The recommendations ol the War, Navy
and Post Office Departments are all ap
proved, and but brief notice is taken of
them. The President bos a paragraph ask
tng generous treatment of the District of
Columbia, and he has a reference to agri
culture and its benefits. He strongly re
commends the completion of the Washing-
ton monument. Take the message all in all
it is far from being sensational. What the
President has to say he says frankly and
plainly, but the message is not remarkable
for iu recommendations, its positions, its
The character of the United Stntes Senate
will not bo improved by the admission of any
of the contestants for seats in that once dig
nified and respected branch of Congress.
There was a time when the Senato was looked
up to as an illustration of the most eminent
statesmanlike ability. In eloquenoe, learning,
and all the qualifications of political leader
ship, it stood pre-eminent. That was the
time when the American people apprccia'
ted true worth, and honored the men who re
flected honor on them by tha splendor of thei
genius. In those days seats could not be
bought; Legislatures were not venal, and
mediocrity was not preferred to Bolid merit
Senators were not chosen as the agenta of of
fice-jobbers and office-seekers; they represent
ed their Slates and the nation, not the inter
ests of mercenary cliques. No Senator then
assumed to play tho part of a dictator to
make the test for public office a servile devo
tion to himself, to proscribe the generous and
independent and to patronito the base and
cringing. A scat in tho Senate was not the:
a piece of property to be handed down from
sire to son, nor were States mere appendage
of a single family, that held them in their
grasp by the right of fraudulent conquest or
purchase The Senatorial dignity.was not
then used to degrade our politics, to convert
them into a mere struggle for place, and to
fill tho most responsible stations with men
whoso private characters were as questionable
as their public practices. Then a Senator
honored tho body to which be belonged, and
tho titlo represented the loftiest virtues and
the most exalted intellect. Had the fromers
of the Constitution ever imagined the Senate
would ono day become a hollow mockery of
what they designed it to be, and thatjt would
becomo an instrument to give factitious dis
tinction to insignificance and imbecility, they
might have hesitated about creating it. Pet
ty personal animosities, narrow-minded pro
scriptivencss, and absolutism of temper are
not fitting characteristics in an American Sen
ator. The Senate should exert an elevating,
not a demoralizing influence. Above all, it
ought to be above the reach of the corrupt
ring dements that have plundered the local
governments, State and municipal, and which
live only by pillage and depredation. Prat.
The present chaplain of the United States
Senato has frequently shown his partisan
feeling in his prayers, but never perhaps in so
fiagraut and offensive a manner as he did on
Wednesday, when, according to the New
York Tribune, ho "made an cloquont ap
peal to tho throno of grace in behalf of Mr.
Kellogg's admission. To thus inject a par
tisan political appeal into a prayer, and in be
half of such an unmitigated ecallawag and
humbug as Kellogg, is such an offence against
decency as no other chaplain ever committed.
The Rev. Dr. Byron Sunderland, Chaplain to
the Senate, appears to think that he was elect
ed to his K)sitiou to pray in accordance with
tho wishes and interests of tho Senators of
one party, and to offend aud insult those of
the other. In other words, he is Chaplain
for only a fraction of over one-half of the Sen
ate. We suppose he prays, te jelly, for Con
over and Patterson when they vote bin way.
and anathematizes them when they don't. Hut
his cool disregard ol the sentiments of all
thoso Senators who are opposed to the admis
sion of Kellogg is amazing and somewhat
amusing. Ho has made up his mind about
tho matter, and he prefers his petitions to
Heaven accordingly flattering himself, no
doubt, that ho thus helps Kellogg's cose con
siderably. Hut coupling the name of the
Creator with that of Kellogg strikes us aa
rank blasphemy. It certainly is exceedingly
impudent, aud is grossly insulting to about
half the Senators. We may safely venture to
predict that Dr. Sunderland will not much
longer bo Chaplain of the Seriate. Surely he
ought to bo ousted as soon as poeaible, and,
if a Chaplaiu must be had, tome clergyman
should be elected who would be tho Chaplain
of tho Senato and not of a party, lUoord.

Tho admission of Kellogg to a scat in tho
Senate, to which he has no more rlghtlul
claim than he has to be Sultan of Turkey,
was a forrgono conclusion from tho hour
when the Republican lenders of their sus
pected followers, alarmed tho Fraudulent
President as to his own tcnuro of office in
caso tho Democrats obtained a majority, and
threatened Booth, Christiancy and Mat
thws with political ostracism If they fol
lowed the bent of their original Inclina
The game was well played, even If the
stakes have been dearly won. A month ngo
there was little prospect of this result. The
Republican leaders had their ascendancy in
the Senate threatened with a sudden over
throw fifteen ruonthB In advanco of tho time
when the Democrats will certainly como In
to a majority. It was natural that they
should struggle desperately, and make ex
traordinary sacrifices of pride and consis
tency, to retain possession of power.
It was, therefore, a contest for party su
premacy, and not for Kellogg ; and it was
the vote, not the man, for which Edmunds
and Cunkllng contended. Tho Committee
on Privileges and Elections performed tho
functions assigned to them after the exam
ple of the Electoral Commission, by voting
steadily six Republicans to three Democrats
and by refusing to take testimony aliunde,
or to go behind the action of the Returning
Board, notwlths'andlng the charges which
were thrown into the teeth of Kellogg in
presence of the committee.
Fully half of tho debate in the Senate was
devoted to an attack on Butler, mid to the
revival of tho Hamburg stories.. rather than
to an examination of Kellogg's cue, and
this, too, by distinguished Senators who had
already proposed to the Democrats to ndmit
the two together. The object of that strate
gy was to confuse the public mind and to
rouse the party passion to such pitch that
defection could hardly be possible. It suc
ceeded, and the so-called White House Sen
ators surrendered at discretion.
The Legislature which elected Judge
Spofford was fashioned by n special com
mission organized by Hayes. It swept away
every vestige of the Packard Legislature,
which elected Kellogg, aud was designed to
wipe out his aspirations with a sponge.

W. A. Wheeler was quick to scent the
coming conclusion, and rushed forward to

He took that way of notifying Hayes of his

In every aspect the seating of Kellogg
is a blow struck at Hayes, and a triumph

party which gave him all the consequence
he ever had, and which put him in the

trading politicians who are ready to sell

the supreme jurisdiction is exercised by ''Tho
Grand Orient of France," which lately gave)
official notification that it ha'd altered the first
article of its constitution, by omitting, there
from as ono of its fundamental principles, bo
lief in tho existence of Ood and the immor
tality of tho soul. This is a national repudi
ation ofjtwn of the cardinal points in Mason
ry, which, based on Holy Writ, ha always
been a religious though never a sectarian in
stitution. The Grand Lodge of Ireland, on
receiving the ubove-stated notification, unani
mously passed a resolution, "that tho Grand
Orient of France hiving by such alteration,
rendered admissible as members of lodges
within its jurisdiction, pci&ons who do not be

ing as Masons any porton hailing from tho

be doubted that the order of Freemasonry in
general will ulo repudiate the infidel action
of tho body in France. A great many cler

bers of the Musonio body, in all countries, but

consists in discontinuing the use of the army
for the purpose of setting up and sustaining
a state government which has not vitality
enough to stand alone, it needs no defence."
But here wo have a square, unqualified en
dorsement from the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Vo that journal Mr. Hayes "makes no upol
ogy for it; begs nothing for it; he simply
demonstrates by irrefutable facts and the ir
resistible logic of results achieved," that tho
policy is all right. Considering that a con
dition of law. order, peace and prosperity are
among tho beneficient result-, which have
come from a policy which permits homo
rule, the Inquirer is to bo congratulated for
seeing tho truth and endorsing it. Patriot.
A somewhat interesting libel suit has just
been disposed of iu tho little town of Bnons-
boro, Maryland, where tho editor cimo off
second best, A few days alter the l'ic-idcu-t'al
election of last year the Iloousbnro Odd
Fellow printed a paragraph in which it stated
its regret to learn that "tho shot-gun or in
timidation policy had been used to swell the
vote of the opposition in ono ca-e at least
that of a colored voter. ' It was informed on
good authority that a prominent citizen of
that town "had threatened to dischargii his
servant if he did not vot tha Democratic
ticket." This was followed in a week or hi
by similar statements. It happened that Dr.
John M Guinea was tho only per.ni in tho
town employing a colored servant who voted
the Democratic ticket at that election, and
Dr. Gaines wasted no time in suing tho editor
of tho Odd Fellow for libel No names were
mentioned in the article but a cloud of wit
nessca appeared to testify that they under
stood tho newspaper to refer to Dr. Gaines
tho moment they read it; and tho Doctor and
his colored servant appeared to testify that
there was no intimidation, that the man hud
voted the Democratic ticket of his own free
will. Tho defendant testified that ho pub
lished tho article upon information which ho
believed to bo true. Tho jury deliberated
tint a hours and returned a verdict iu favor of
thb plaintiff, assessing tho tl image at two
hundred dollars, which, iu addition tn tho
costs, males a bill against th" editor of about
fivo huudn d dollars. This is not a very largo
sum, but it is enough probibly to restrain any
future bloody-shirt tendencies of that particu
lar editor, Timet.
Frank Rande, a prisoner nbout whom
many column aro published in tho western
newspapers, was captured near St. Lnui
after he had killed two of the four police
men who had hunted him down. Last sum
mer he murdered a man wantonly in Bt
Elmo, III., and was chased by n moh. He
shot down three leaders of the pursuer", one
after another, using his revolver with won
derful conlnes and skill, Doubtless the
crimes attributed to him are exaggerated,
but it seems certain that ho has killed seven
men In quarrel, lie is young, educated
and has occupied Methodist and 1'retbyter
Ian pulpit, lie also writes poetry, usually
in praise of the beauties of women.
