Sad Commentary on Southern Jus
Trom the New Vork World.
McDom, the murderer of Captain
Dawson, of Chnr’cston, was acqiiitlcd
yesterday. The event is an extraordi
nary miscarriage of justice, but it will
(surprise no one who has attentively
followed the reports of the trial. From
the first it has been evident either
that the prosecuting officers were a
net of imbeciles, incapable of man
aging their case, or that they were
not anxious to convict their prisoner.
They bungled the business in aston
ishing fashion at every step. The
trial leaves no doubt in honest minds,
however, as to the real nature of the
crime. McDow justly adjudged him
self guilty when he tried, for some
hours after the killing, to obliterate
the evidence and make way with the
body of his victim. That was the act
of a man conscious that a murderous
purpose had prompted his murderous
deed and that a murderous spirit still
remained in his heart.
Yet this man is acquitted, and is
henceforth subject to no punishment
except such as the loathing and con
tempt of all honorable men can in-
He, a married man and a father,
deliberately sought to degrade and de
stroy a defenseless girl, following her
for that purpose even into her. em
ployer’s house, which he entered like
a sneak-thief. When the girl’s em
ployer, with cbivalric impulse and
high sense of duty, sought to save her,
McDow shot him to death from be
hind and then tried to bury the body
under the floor of a closet.
This is the story. It does not pre
sent a state of facts which ought to
have led to an acquittal. It is a sad
commentary upon southern justice
and a fresh blot upon the state of
South Carolina, which permits its fore
most and most useful citizen to be
slain like a dog without making even
an honest effort to punish his slayer.
Albany, Ga., July ia.—Prof. D’Al-
bert Wenzel, a self-called world-re
nowned pianist, struck the city a few
days ago, put up at the Artesian house,
ran a printing account and billed the
city for a concert to-night. When the
time arrived for the music to begin
the noted musician was missing, and
upon investigation it was discovered
that the professor was dead drunk at
the hotel. The printer, hotel keeper
and opera house manager came out
with light purses. The piofessor gath
ered in his little grip and left the city
to-night, taking the wagon road to

Atlanta, Ga., July 12.—Gossip
here about the Western and Atlantic
railroad and betterments, hns taken a
fresh and sensational turn, involving

ball. This is the first visible appear
ance of the Louisville and Nashville
in this fight, although they arc known
to be the practical owners of the ex
piring lease. Mr. Kimball is reported
to have said that within a day or two
the lessees were determined to force
the state to an issue on thequestion of
betterments, and that it would not be
permitted to shirk it. Humor has it
that the plan is to tear up the sidings,
carrying nut to that extent the threat
of Senator Brown to dismantle the
property, and if the state interferes,
to take the matter into the Tennessee
courts. Members of the legislature
whom these reports have reached, dis
cuss the matter very gravely, and it is
likely that they will bring it up in the
House in some shape very soon.
If the L. A N. should undertake to
tear up any of the tracks of the W. &
A. R. II. there would he music in
