La, known « t. th« rePre8entatives of that millionaire organization of Chicago, known as the Chicago Citizens' Association stand to a man demanding 2ur XowTr;m^tiateeXtinCti0nand "»PP»«ta» by an ignominious „ «„. „Mh ! aS °ne °f the pe°Ple- a common man- a working- man, one of the masses and I ask your honor to give ear to what I have to say. \ ou stand as a bulwark; you are as a brake between them and us. You are here as the representative of justice, holding the poised scales in your hands. \ on are expected to look neither to the right nor the left, but to that by »bich justice, and justice alone, shall be subserved. The conviction of a man, your honor does not necessarily prove that he is guilty. Your law books are failed with instances where men have been carried to the scaffold and after their death it has been proven that their execution was a judicial mnrder. Now, what end can be subserved in hurrying this matter through in the manner in which it has been done? Where are the ends of justice subserved, and where is truth found in hurrying seven human beings at the rate of express speed to the scaffold and an ignominious death? Why, if your honor please, the very method of our extermination, the deep damnation of our taking off, appeals to your honor's sense of justice, of rectitude, and of honor. A judge may also be an unjust man. Such things have been known. We have, in our histories, heard of Lord Jeffreys. It need not follow that because a man is a judge he is also just. As everyone knows, it has long since become the practice in American politics for the candidates for judgeships, throughout the United States, to be named by corporations and monopoly influences, and it is a well known eecret that more than one of our chief justices have been appointed to their seats upon the bench of the United States, Supreme Court at the instance of the leading railway magnates of America— the Huntingtons and Jay Goulds. Therefore the people are beginning to lose confidence in some of our courts of law.
