1 a .^Shannon’s Jury Bill.
1 rfonang k«w«.
| |MbBl that will attract considerable
attention when it is introduced into
the legislature is that which Senator
Shannon, of Twiggs county, is now
preparing. The purpose of it is .to
abolish exemptions from jury duty in
cases of felony. A crying evil in this
*state is jury exemptions. In the
cities particularly nearly all ol the
class of citizens best qualified for jury
; Hulr are exempted. The result is
that jjt is extremely difficult to get a
? 1 -Jfljy ihat is competent to render a
verdict in accordance with the law
and the facts in either civil or crimi
The fact that a man is rich or
prominent, or has important business
aflairs which demand the greater part
of his time, is no reason why he
should be permitted to shirk jury du
ty. It is all nonsense to say that
business men cannot act as jurymen
without making great sacrifice of
their business interests. When they
want to leave their homes for a week
or month they find no difficulty in
arranging to do so.
It is unjust to impose upon a few
citizens the duty of acting as jury
men. These few may also have busi
ness interests which sufTer because
of their temporary inability to direct
them, but they arc either too con
scientious to shirk the duty which, as
citizens, devolves upon them, or they
are too poor to comply with
the financial conditions upon which
*- exemption can be secured.
Senator Shannon’s bill docs not
go far enough. It ought to include
important civil cases us well as the
giaver criminal ones. In the courts
in the cities cases requiring for tlicir
decision a high order of intelligence
and good judgement arc all the time
being tried. There are so many ex
emptions that jurors having the right
kind of qualifications are difficult to
get. Cases, therefore, are not un-
; frequently determined by those who
.are governed by prejudice, or who
lack ability to reach the truth from
the facts and the law.
• Senator Shannon’s bill is only* a
step in the right direction. There
is certainly great need for reform in
the jury system as it exists in many
of the counties of this state.
The law which, provides for the
resumption of work in the Mow \ ork
prisons will soon go into effect, and
the evils of enforced idleness will now
. be.remedied. While the Mew York
'? convicts have suffered. dreadfully
from the operation of the law.- forbid
ding the sale of prison made goods,
the experience has been of value in
impressing the precepts laid down by
the reformers. The horrors of the
season of idleness have been declared
by wardens to be indescribable, as the
introduction of regular work as a part
of prison life is welcomed as a verita
ble blessing by the unfortunate pris
oners. The comparative records of
the two systems as shown iu New
York should be carefully studied by
the authorities of other States, and the
object lesson presented should be
generally accepted by all persons who
arc interested in the humane treat
ment of convicts.—Ex.
The sickliest community in the
United States appears to be Leaven
worth, Kan. No less than 22,000
cases of sickness requiring the use of
liquor as a remedy were registered at
the drug stores in that city last year.
“WHAT MEDICINES ABE MOST
CALLED FOB 7”
Aflkod the reporter of an old druggist.
** Dr. JMerce's preparations,” he refilled.
‘‘They are sold under a positive guar-
jin tee that they will, in every case, give
satisfaction, or the money is promptly re
funded. His 4 Favorite Prescription, for nil
those chronic weaknesses, nervous and other
derangements peculiar to women, is used with
unfailing succors. It euros weak back, bear
ing-down sensations, irregularities and weak
nesses common to the sex, and being the
most perfect of tonic medicines builds up
and strengthens the entire system. Tho de
mand for it is constant, and I am conversant
with scores of eases cured by it.”
Returning after a few moments’ absence,
the venerable widd i* of tho fiestlo remarked,
‘‘the number of snrsnparilhis and other, so-
called, ‘blood inedioines’ is legion; but Dr.
Pierce’s Golden Medical Discovery outsells
them all and it is the only blood-purifier out
of the many which 1 am obliged to keep upon
my shelves, that is gtiarnntecd to benefit nr
cure in all cases f # »r which it is recommended,
or money paid for it is refunded.”
“ In the line of Pills." remarked the old gen
tlemen, “tho little Sugar-coated ‘Pellets*
put. up by l)r. Pierce lead all others, both in
amount of sales and tin* general satisfaction
they give my,customers.”
