The Man Whom This Paper Will Sup

From time to time some de
serving reference or compliment
ban appeared in this paper con
cerning this or that man whose
name is before the people for
public position on public tiust.
This has aroused numerous en
quiries as to whom we would
support. To settle this matter,
especially with reference to Con
giess, we will state that in the
coining contest, we will be guid
ed by no personal preference.
We believe that the man whom
the people should send to repre

cultural district should be a man
not only of undoubted integrity,
great inform. itiori and ability,
but also one who believes in and
will most earnestly and zealous

First, A change in the princi

change that will lower taxes not
only to revenue basis, but even
lower and make up the deficien
cy by a graduated income tax.
Because a system that taxes that
what people eat, wear and use
otherwise is unjust, in that it
bears more heavily upon the
poor than rich.
Second, TI13 free and unlimi

tax on State Banks.

present National Banking Sys

In the ca?e of State against

many persons were i ejected on
the ground that they had form-

reports of the case that it caused
some to conclude that the news-

counts of homicides and other
crimes, and even the able law-

norance and stupidity We have
time and again contended
thro these columns that it was
not in keeping with the spirit of
progress of the age to exclude
men from the jury, on grounds
that have lo3t their force and
point, and are therefore now
absurd. We intended to write
this article immediately after
the trial, and had asked a legal
friend to furnish us with the
opinions of eminent jurists on
the que3tion,who haa not done so
till just now. The following are
the extracts :
Chief Justice Agnew, of Penn
sylvania, said : 'We must either
recede and go back to the prac
tice of an age when ingnorance
of passing events constitute d a
characteristic of tie times, and
exclude every juror who has
formed an opinion, even the
slightest; or we must stand
abreast with the present atre.
when every remarkable event
of to-day is known all over the
country to-morrow, and exclude
those only whoss opinions are
so fixed as to be pre-judgments,
or have been formed upon the
known evidences of the case. It
is needless to say that the world
moves and carries us with ifc, and
it we lag behind we must commit
the trial of the most causes in
lifo to those so ignorant that
their dark minds have never
been smitten by the rays of in
telligence." (75 p. 424.)
Chief Justice Marshall, in the
trial of Aaron Burr, said : "Were
it possible to obtain a jury with
out any prepossessions whatever,
respecting the guilt or innocence
of the accused, it would be ex
tremely desirable to obtain such
a .jury : out this is perhaps im
possible and therefore will net
be required. The opinion which
has been avowed by the court is
that light impressions which
may fairly be supposed to yield
to the testimony that mav be
offered, which may leave the
mind open to a fair considera-
tion Of that testimony, COnsti-Lf

Mr. Editor : The above clip
