After a trial lasting about six months
the Star Kotite thieves havo been sic-

the nation. The guilt of tho accused

Dorsey has threatened to institute legal

would extort an acuuittal, The admo
nition of the first jury in tho case, with
its members who defeated a conviction,
trembling in tho criminal dock at the
possible consequences of their disregard
of sworn duty, was believed to be
protection against such a llaerant inis-
carriago of justice. But llu-rj lim not
merely been a tniscariiago of justice
there has been a total, a revolutionary
overthrow of justice, in tho only place
where it is presumed that law is su
premo and justice inviolate. With one
juror exhibiting as a drunken maniac
111 court, just when thogravest duty was
to be performed, and with ignorance
and necessity fitting the jurors, as a
body, for easy prey to the desperate
tempter, it is not surprising, after all,
that a verdict of acquittal has been de
manded by tho contracting parties, in
stead of the equally effectivo shield
from punishment of a disagreeing jury.
The public thieves who havo shamed
tho nation by the most gigantic robbery
and studied perjury, havo been asbravo

Willi the Indian problem in a sensible,
business soil of u wav that promises
much benefit to thu fultiio of (lie abo
riginals of America, If only thoDeparU

sumo policy. The Secretary visited
the Carlisle school ushort timu ago and
oxpressed n waim nnnrovnl of tho way
iu which Indian children aro theru be
ing educated,, both iu letters and me
chanical arts, and declared that in his
opinion the ohly way to save tho In
dian, was to inako him sclf-sttppoitlng
nnd eiinsequunlly independent. He
follows up this excellent Idea by an
nouncing that ho will usu his influence
and nil the money ho can command lu
mnku the Indians stock raisers, con.
verting their leservations into urnzini'
lauds and allowing them their own
lloeks and herds by which they can
make an honest living, and as they
grow into thu habit of saving up for a
lainy day they may become in indepen
dent and wealthy as any of tho white
people engaged iu a similar calling.
'I hero is much to commend in this
policy. It will give the Iudians some
thing to do which is, ns nearly as may

and modes of living. It will giro them
plenty ot exercise, with no work that
an Indian will specially legard as do
grading to him. It will tend to keep
them quiet by keeping the mind and
body employed, leaving little lime to
brood over their past glories or tancied
wrongs done to their race bv the domi
nant white man. It will educate them
in that underlying principle upon which
tho whole structure of civilized society
is built; tho principle of maim cttuitm,
without which anarchy must soon pro
vail. It will leach them to rely 011
their own resouices, and not to depend
upon the charity of tho State doled out

from lirusfi Valley, some distance from

named Moore was killed in tho mines

of eleven years of age. They moved
into a farming region and by dint of
hard work managed to exist. Both
mother and son wero practical
sensible people, quiet but sociable.
Last night, about twelve o'clock,
Mrs. Mooro was awakened bv hearing
a terrible outcry in the room adjoinin
hers, occupied by tho son, now a boy
ot sixteen years, in haste she r.m to
the room and found the boy almost
paralyzed with fear, standing by the
open window with beads of prespira

caimed nun, and questioned him as to
the cause of his trepidation. Still

HARD FACTS and PLENTY.
(j,ik I hill is simply a great retail i Clothino Housethe
rrreatcst of its kind in the country. Our Clothing is made
upon honor. We would- be worse than fools to expect to
build and hold a business upon.othcr than honest goods at the
le-tst urices We neither hold nor buy the remains of whole-s-ile
stocks to run off at rot.il, but make every garment to sell
direct to tho wvaror, under our cast-iron guarantee , a bond
of good faith original with us and perfectly well known to
everybody in the vicinity.
NO PRICES REDUCED.
We are not advertising reduced prices, but we are in
position to offer the best bargains in Spring Clothing of every
sort and upon many items very great bargains. In a very
