My Dear Sir: In the abhorrence with
which all. decent men alike shudderiat
the attempt to murder the. President I
have given thought, to a matter to
which your nur.nuon may or may not
have turned. Our criminal code treats
premeditated, homicide i in all cases
alike, irrcspective.of tbe victim; a mur
der being visited by the greatest pen
alty. Perhaps no distinction between
one case and another could be founded
on the public relations held bv the per
son stulri; but in the case of an attempt
to murder, broad distinctions can be
made between, assailing the life of an
individual and an . attempt to I take a
life of special value to the. whole peo
ple. The shocking occurrence of Sat
urday, I think, demands that the defi
mtion or puoisnment oi assaults at
high Executive officers, whether sue-
cessml or not, anouia oe maae tnor
oughly rigtirous. The man who at
tempts the life of the President, if mor
ally responsible, f commits an offence
which tbe nation ougnt to guard
nation oueht to
aeainst and punish by the exertion of I
all the power civilized nations may em. I
pioy. i sygceai os as aetprvmg con-
aideralion. My profound sympathies
villi in KrMinani : inn un all ni l
tou every hour. The conflict of re
ports keep hope and fear striving with:
each other, with nothing stable except
the faith and trust that the worst is
over and passed. I wish you would
express my deepest sympathy- In this
hour, which snouia nusu an discords I
field my most respectful condolence.
Trusting" that all will be.well.

The prohibitionists are claiming all

think, from reading their papers that

pers that Honorable Daniel G. Fowle,
Honorable Daniel L.Eossell.Uonorable
Joseph J. Martin, Honorable A. M.
Waddell, and thousands of others are
cjut making speeebes in favor of the
bill' Yet it is not the case. There are
a few men wb are ia fa vw of the bill
from conscience motive?, and will ad
vocate it. But it is hard to find a man,
who believes in equal rights for all
men, who will come out square in favor
qf prohibition. The fact is, most of
tie men wl o ad vocate prohibition do

1 eiog done to thousands in their pri
vate business pursuits; but some mem?
er of their tainiiy is a drunkard, and
they', believe that by prohibiting the
s ale-if liquor tie stain will be removed.
n otner words, tney are willing to de
stroy thousands for the sake of person
The prohibitionists all say that no re-
pectable man would advocate antir
prohibition. We are led by this to ask
