The Evansville Indiana Daily Senti nel, one of whose editors was an officer in the Federal army during the war, has a dmtlile-leaded leader in favor of (ten. Hubert E. Lee for President in isos.

The ease was that of one .1. W. Walker, who killed a I'recdmaii and was arrest ed and acquitted by the civil tribunal. On his living arrested by the military authorities, he was tried by a commis sion and sentenced to hard labor and imprisonment for six years. An effort is being made to get the man pardoned, on the ground that the crime was com milted before the reconstruction law was passed, and that the life of the de fended had been twice put in jeopardy contrary to the Constitution of the I'nited States, | iSne<unio/t Hijmlilii'iiii.
