Sad Commentary on Southern Jus tice. 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- Jiict. 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. He Skipped. 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 wards Leesburg. Tracks May be Torn Up. Atlanta, Ga., July 12.—Gossip here about the Western and Atlantic railroad and betterments, hns taken a fresh and sensational turn, involving aome activity on the part of the .Louisville and Nashville railroad and it* agent for the purpose,. H. I. Kim 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 the air. A Leather Trust. Nkwabk, N. J., July 11.—Arrange ment* are making fo form a leather syndicate or trust here. This city is the center for patent leather, nine- tenth* of that made in the country being manufactured here. The pre liminary steps are being taken, so that when George A. Halsey and Samuel Powell return from Europe the trust will be ready to go into operation. It is easier to make moucy than to nave it.

For overworked, “ worn-out," 41 run-down,” debilitated teachers, milliners, dressmakers, seamstresses, “shop-girls,” housekeepers, nursing mothers, and feeble women gener ally, Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription is the greatest earthly boon, being unequalcd as an appetizing cordial and restorative tonic, or strength-giver.
