JHEOKS SUEE TO WIN.
A Glance at Some of the Exceptional
bulwarks of liberty,
CONFESSION OP AN OLD LAWYER.
How He Workei Men in Whom He Knew
He Could Mold.
A BITER FIREMAK'S TAHITI STIBRED
That a large percentage of business and
non-profeisional people allow the profes
sional classes to think for them is, perhaps,
sot strange, as it has been the rule trom
time immemorial; bat when a man so emi
nent as Ihaddens "Stevens declared that if
it were possible that anything could be be
yond the foreknowledge of God, it would be
the verdict of a jury, it seems a little bit
strange that the populace at large consider
it the ''bulwark of Anglo-Saxon liberty,"
under any and all circumstances.
As a rule, lawyers profess to consider it
an indispensible adjunct to justice, though
all do not. A gentleman who has expanded
opportunities forjudging, and who has an
intimate acquaintance with many legal gen
tlemen, and especially one eminent as an
advocate in the Criminal Court, relates
come anecdotes which go far to explain why
this lawyer is especially enamored of the
jury system, and why he would, probably
at least, prefer to have jurors unsophisti
cated and untrained in logic He relates
tome of the afore-mentioned lawyer's expe
riences. THE EIGHT OJTE EXACTLT.
A good many years ago there was a very
unprovoked and brutal murder committed
on the Uorthside, and this lawyer was en
gaged to defend the murderer. There wasn't
a shadow of hope that he could be acquitted
on either legal or moral grounds, and hence
some other must be sought The lawyer was
in to win, as he always is, and his legal
training and practice had made his armor
proof against the weakness of those who
have never familiarized themselves with
tophisms. The only hope to secure an ac
quittal lay in securing a rascal or a sap
head on the jury. The District Attorney
was working for fame, and, with a perhaps
somewhat pardonable weakness, measured
bis success by the number ol convictions he
Among the jurors called was a man not
overly well baked who brad been under
obligations to the attorney for the defense
for legal advice, and the latter
knew he could "work him." To
accomplish the end desired, the lawyer
for the defense contrived to make the Dis
trict Attorney believe the defense wonld
prefer to have the man objected to. The
ruse worked, and the public prosecutor de
cided not to object to the alleged objection
able man, and he was accepted. To him the
attorney for the defense addressed the bulk
of his arguments, and flattered him to an
extent that would have been thought peril
ous to a lawyer who knew not the juror's
limited capacity. As calculated, that man
finally wore out the convictions of 11 stub
born, but more intelligent and conscien
tious men, and
THE EED-HA2TDED MUEDEKEB
went tree and it is believed that, to this
day, the District Attorney has never di
vined the cause of his failure to convict.
The juror called a few days later on the at
torney for the defense and remarked that it
would have been absurd to convict the mur
derer on such evidence. The fact that it
was overwhelming never dawned on his
addled pate, and, though he was dismissed
with the utmost appearance of consideration,
the lawyer subsequently was known to re
mark that he could afford to give -professional
advice gratis to such men. The
rest of the jury, sad to say, quieted their
consciences on the narrow basis of divided
The same lawyer was, on another occa
sion, attorney for a company that had put
some kind of a furnace in a factory, and it
was claimed that it did not work up to re
quirements. It is said that the plaintiffs
had merit in their claims, but did their at
torney rest on that? Not at all. He recog
nized a man on the jury who was a fireman
on a steamboat, and decided to concentrate
his fire on him, and here is the burden of
the argument (?): ,
"Gentlemen of the jury, I recognize among
you farmers and artisans, gentlen en of sound
judgment in your avocationg, men of prob
ity. God-fearing men and men of general in
telligence; but it has not been your duty to
Study this case as it has been mine, nofhave
you had the opportunity. "We are excep
tionally fortunate, howe'ver, gentlemen, in
having among us in ,the right decision of
this matter a man who thoroughly under
stands the subjett. My friend, Mr. . is
a steamboat fireman, and will be able, gen
tlemen, to explain to you much better than
I can hope to be able, the difficulties that
beset a man in the prosecution of this call
ing, unless he has been
SPECIALIST TRAINED THEBEFOB.
"He can explain to you that, without the
requisite training and added experience, no
man, no two men, could have managed this
furnace successfully, and we have proven
to you that the defendants, a tew days after
this furnace was put in, discharged their
fireman and imposed the duty upon an en
tirely inexperienced man. My friend, who
is an expert fireman, will explain to you
that, if his employers were to discharge him
and put an inexperienced man in his place
no intelligent underwriter would take a risk
on that boat for one day."
That fireman's head bumped among the
stars as he went out with his fellows to the
consulting room, and, in a few minutes,
they returned with a verdict for plaintiffs
for the full amount of their claims, and with
costs. Soft-solder had accomplished its per
The same lawyer in another case where
both wind and wave were against him law,
reason, justice and common sense ex
plained that he knew he would win it, as he
recognized among the jurors a man who was
a driver for his (the lawyer's) brother.
Is it any wonder that some legal gentle
men regard the jury as "the bulwark of Anglo-Saxon
liberty" and "the perfection of

New Xobk, April 27. Shipping people
down town were thrown into a state of ex
citement to-day, when the news reached
them that the bark J. "Walter Scammel was
.off Bedloe's Island, flying signals of distress.
Notification was at once given the police
boat patrol, the captain of which sent two
officers in a small boat to the bark, to ascer
tain what was the trouble. The officers
found that the crew of ten men had muti
nied, and that one of the number had been
From all that could be learned the story
is that the bark, which is from St, John's,
N. B., was to sail from this port with a
cargo of lumber for Bio de Janeiro. Cap!
tain Fnrlane was not on board, but he was
expected at any time, and preparations were
being made to sail by Mate Foster, when
five of the sailors refused to work, claiming
that the ship was unseaworthy and in a
leaking condition. They also claimed that
the captain had shipped the other five men
of the crew when he Knew that they were
not competent sailors. Then a fight took
place, in which one man was knocked down,
and Mate Foster run up a signal of dis
tress. The moment the officers clambered over
the side of the vessel, peace was restored
and the distress signal was hauled down.
The crew has agreed to abide by the deci
sion of the British Consul.

Relief After 'Twelve Years of Intense
After failure to
duced an entire
removal of all
traces of disease.
For about 12 years I have suffered from dis
ease of tbe Liver and Kidneys. 1 tried several
doctors, who gave me nauseous medicines that
gave me only temporary or no relief. 1 tried
patent medicines until my stomach was in such
a state as to force indigestion. Time passed,
and the disease, of course, advanced. Last
summer I became so much reduced that I
weighed only 131 pounds. I was weak, nervous,
no appetite, skin very sallow and blotchy and
I felt so distressing, 1 knew 1 could not bear
up long unless something was done. One day I
dropped in to the laboratory of Dr. Griffith, in
Pittsburg. Having heard of the "Ta-ra-ion
Remedies," I decided to try them. I purchased
two bottles, Nos 1 and 2, and had only taken a
few doses until I felt a marked difference. My
appetite began to increase and I began to gain
in flesh. H ow I weich 150 and have good color,
and having used six bottles feel entirely cuitKD.
I sincerely believe "Ta-va-zon" (Angel op
Light) saved my life. In fact, Ta-ya-zow is
the only medicine that reached my case. Wish
ing fou every success, yours gratefully, J. 8.

not, for It is utterly impossible for any one to
remain tick long if they take Ta-va-zon

THE FATHER OF OUR COUHTRY
Great as were Adams and Greene and Jefferson and Hamilton, and all that
galaxy of heroes and statesmen, the chief -and master of them all was Washing
ton. Sagacious in all things, equally wise in the strategy of the field and the
philosophy of government; judicious and calm in the shock of battle or the
stress of national despair; devoid of dramatic show and the petty airs of pre
tended greatness, the luster of his pure character, of his serene patience and
courage, of his far-seeing wisdom brightens with the years, and his name and
achievements grow ever dearer to his countrymen and the race as the result of
his labors and his counsels accumulate with the onward march of American

- The Inauguration of Washington
was, in fact, the completion of the nation's majority, for, while the Declaration
of Independence, the evacuation of New York by the British and the adoption
joi the Constitution are all great epochs in the history of our country, it was not,
however, until the first President had been chosen and inaugurated that the new
government was reaUy on its feet. It is fitting that this event should be suitably
commemorated, but the original occurrence and its observance now alike gather
added interest from the personality of him who then took the oath of fidelity to
his high trust
Kaufmanns', with their usual zeal and enterprise, have gaily decorated their
building in honor of the occasion, and made a very appropriate window display
that should be seen by everybody. It is a life size representation of General
Washington on horseback. This tableau is surrounded by thirteen little boys
(representing the 13 original States) each one holding aloft the star spangled
banner. In the fore ground a faithful depiction of the well known cherry tree
story completes this artistic display.

included in our recent gigantic sacrifice purchase
from Peck & Hauchhaus, the famous New York man
ufacturers of juvenile clothing, should be attended
by every mother who has a boy to clothe. Had we
bought these in the regular way we would not be able
to sell them below 4 50 to 5 50, but having secured
them as we did, we cheerfully step forward to share
our good, fortune with the parents of Pittsburg.
These suits, which range in sizes from 4 to 14, are
made of prime all-wool Cassimeres, Scotch Cheviots,
Worsteds, Tricots and Serges, in large and small
Scotch plaids, stripes, checks and mixtures, are made
plain or fancy pleated, and come with or without
vests. If you want one of these remarkably cheap
J?3 suits, don't delay, but bring your boy in to-morrow.
BOYS' FI LOHE-PANT SUITS
These Suits, which are for Boys from 12 to 18
years old, come in sack and frock styles, are made of
the same class of materials as the suits for which
you generally pay from 11 to 14. The manufact
urers, Moore & Beir, Rochester, New York, closed
them out to us for less than the cost of production,
which fact now places us in a position to offer them
to you at the unexampled price of 8. At this
