Q A H L. JOHN, Publishers and Proprietor!!. ERDICT. DHIJTWSSB BT Lord Galloway Acquitted by a Scotch Jury. IS THE FAOE OF OEU3HDW FEOOF. TUESDAY, OCTOBKK 8, ISSt. An OKI Story an-J an Old Bloral. ©or renders are famiiinr with the ac- mmat °' how tho hi S h BhcrifT of Now York got a divorce from himself on his wife's behalf, and kindly saved her any ler In tho proceedings by not letting know anything about it til) it was all The indictment by the grand jury „.• Sheriff Flack and five of his co-conspirators will have a tendency to bring f he whole happy crew to their senses. They will find that getting a fraudulent divorce through perjury and secrecy ia not such a "private matter" aa Sheriff Flack claimed it was. One of the indicted individuals Is Flack's own son, another ia a judge and lawyer, while a third is the referee himself, before whom tbo allegwl testimony in the case was alleged to be given. Tho five men indicted were mostly parsons of high political standing, and •ome of them of excellent social position. The Inw's vengeance in New York is becoming almost aa proverbially swift as "Jersey justice." If convicted, the pen- Uwntuwy doora will close on some of theeo gentlemen. This case may also have the effect to change the law of some of the states in regard to divorce proceedings. It is permissible in these states to have the di- TOTCB testimony removed from open oonn and given simply in private, be fore a referee, who makes Biicli report M he chooses. This was how Sheriff Flack's divorce was obtained. The Uw was supposed to withdraw from fth* public car and eyo tteumlulous Hid unpleasant Btorica. Uul Isiis to which it is liable to be put" is •o plain that the grand jury who pre- MBted tho indictment against the Flack conspirators recommend that the prac tioe of appointing referees in divorce owes be abolished. In prison walls tho guilty, persons will have time perhaps to remember that at the grand round up of human life and •otion there U nothing that can succeed quite so well as .golden, honor bright honesty. It is a fact that there is no * body so easily deceived as the person who is constantly trying to deceive Others. He loses in time his power of Meing things as they actually are, loses tbe nice discrimination of fact. Simple, straightforward truth and honesty in •ocomplishing B purpose are better than •11 crookedness, better than all guile.

LONDON, Oct. 15.—Tho trial of ths earl ot Oallowny on the charge of indocont assault on a littlo girl named Gibson took place at Edinburgh ywterdav, be-fore n crowded court The child's evidence was direct, and hor testimony was corroborated by other witnesses. A ntatoment prepared by tho de- fundant was then roaii, in which tho explanation was made that no intentional offense was committed. Aft-jr tha bearing of. farther evidence the earl waa acquitted of tho charge. How tho Verdict W»s Ilocelved. Tho announcement of the verdict gave rise to a scene rarely witnessed in a court ia this country. The guilt of the accused seemed so clearly established, even by such evlJenca ai was allowed to filter through the objections ot tbo six eminent counsel for the de- Jtmse, that those pi-osont in tho court- room, many of whom were friends and relatives of th« littlo girls whom the a?ed nobleman was charged with abusing, took no ptins to conceal their disgust with the verdict Tha announcement of the verdict was tbe signal for load expressions of disapproval from the benches where the spectators were soated, and the frowns and threats of tha presiding judge were of no avail to suppress the cries of "Shame!" "Shamel" uttered by dozens of indignant persons. The Nnws In london. In London the news of the verdict was re- osived with great indignation among the common people, and it is pointed out that had the accused been anything but a great nobleman the evidence brought out would have been sufficient to convict him a do«en times over. The marquis of Salisbury, who has manifested great interest lu tho case ever since tho charges were flrat brought, hurried to London last evening, so aa to receive the earliest news of the result of tha trial. "When informed that Galloway had been acquitted ho received the news with every evidence of satisfaction. The earl's best friends sea rt-'-ly hopod for more than the Scotch verdict of "not-provon," mid ftti pleased them quite as lense of —Mr, mid Mrs. Thomas .Stevenson, of River-kin, Cnl., ftre guests of Mrs. W.

Frank Hoover has a 2-year-old colt which recently run a piece of board into ths hock joint of one leg. J. Ad. Jacobs, of Jordan had a valuable horse die by bloating on Sunday.

After the wedding, which was witnessed by a large company, the party proceeded to Mr. Solomon's residence, where a rich wedding feast was served at noon, and where a large number of friends remained daring the afternoon.

All who have listened to the reproduction are delighted with the exhibition, and pronounce the prince's eloquence equal to the. fresh article in his palmiest days. Working Women's Morals. Having BfcatiBticized about everything •Ue, Hon. Carroll D. Wright, commis- rioner of labor, has at length turned his attention to the moral character of wo- ssen who work for their living. After Impection of stores and factories in the principal cities of the Union the commissioner kindly remarks: From all that can be learned, one need not best ttto in asserting that the working women of the Dmitry ore a» boncst and u virtuous as any cUa< tt our citizens. This is judgment truly worthy of Bunsby. It ia not likely, is it, that a woman steals if she toils eight or ten hours a day, year in and year out, six days in the week, or that she has much ttaie to dissipate nights if she must rise at 6 or 0 o'clock in the morning to reach her place of business in time? Wh'y indeed should not working women be as "moral" aa any other people? There seems to be an assumption here • which almost gives the inference that if a woman works for her living she could hardly be expected to bo as "honest arid ;-S virtuous" as other people. The truth ia that the general morality of working women ia considerably higher than that of idle, fashionable women. Satan today finds mischief for idle hands quite as frequently as at any period of tttgjworld. Certainly, it is" plain aa the "face lliat i nose on a man's "face lliat if u wumuu" earns her bread by labor, she does not got it i»i any questionable way. Mr. Wright llnds that, owinx to the crowded condition of NtTw York, working girls are worse o!f there than' in any Other city. He finds, also, that foreign born employers are often mon- considerate of their help than native Americans, and "the kinili-at proprietor in the world !• A Jew of the better class." Now let Mr. Wright institute a imul into the moral character of wuuien who do not work for their giving. Milan Talk! About Natalia. LONDON, Oct. 15.—A Parisian journal has been interviewing ex-King Milan, of Servla, who said that he was not at all surprised at the conduct of his former queen, Natalie, in Belgrade at the present time. She was always fond of kicking up a row upon th» slightest provocation, or no provocation at all, and the present peculiar condition of affairs in Bervia gave her an opportuptty she could not ignore. • ^ Improved the Outlook for Pence. BERLIN, Oct. 15.—-Statesmen, diplomatists and politicians express the hear Host satisfaction with the result of the exchange of views between tho czar aud Emperor William.
