Sije- <$&£&&& Friday Morning, Juno 0, 1873. Yesterday, five weeks after tho opening of tho Vienna Exposition, tho American Department was thrown open to tho public. It is not sur prising that it surpasses tho other departments in novelties, as tho cable announces. Stokes is believed in New York to have boon denied tho now trial ho sought from tho Court of Appeals. Judge Sutherland is authority for tho statement that tbo Court has approved the de cision of tho Supremo Court. Tho decision is not yet formally announced, but, if it bo correct ly .foreshadowed, Qov. Dix is' now the only Tofngo Stokes has from tho gallows, and that refuge is not worth much to a murderer. Full returns from tho Fifth Judicial District are not yet to baud, but some additional figures are reported. Henry County, which was said yesterday to have given Judgo Lawrence a ma jority of 180, is now credited with 500 majority for Craig. Tho majorities for tho successful candidate are increased by tho late dispatches, which give Lawrence only five of tho eleven counties heard from, Craig’s majority now stands at 2,331. Tho Chicago produce markets wore weak yes terday. Moss pork was dull and 100 per brl lower, closing at $15.50@15.65 cash, and $15.75 @15.80 seller July. Lard was dull and 10c per 100 lbs lower, closing at $8.35 cash, and $8.55 seller July. Meats wore quiet and steady, at G>£q for shoulders, 8%0 for short ribs, 8%0 for short clear, and 10@12c for sweet-pickled hams. Lake freights wore quiet and 1c higher, at 7c for corn to Buffalo. Highwinos wore Inactive and nominally unchanged, at per gallon. Flour was dull and easier.' Wheat was dull and un changed, closing at sl.2l>£o cash, sell er the month, and $1.21 seller July. Com was active and l&o lower, closing at 33#0 cash and 37)£c seller July. Outs wore active and l@l*o lowor, closing at 280 cash and 20%0 sell er July. Rye was more active and 2o lowor, at 61c. Barley was Inactive and nominally un changed, at 70@76 for poor to good No. 2. Hogs wore dull and lower, selling at $3.80@1.20. Tho cattle market was firm. Bhoop wore easy. Ratazzi, tho famous Italian statesman, who died yesterday, was tho most learned and ouo of tho most eloquent of Italian lawyers. Ho was bora iu 180S, and, whon 40 years of ago, hod achieved a lofty position as a constitutional lawyer and a loading politician.. In 1818 ho was made a member of Charles Albert's Ministry. This lasted but ton days. In 1852 ho was chosen President of tho Chamber on account of his great legal acquirements and tho moderation of his political views. Ho succeeded Count flavour in tho conduct of tho Oovornmont after tho ar mistice of Yillafranca, and in 18G2 was intrusted with tho task of forming a now Ministry. Tho policy which ho promulgated, and which regard ed Franco and England as “ tho natural allies of Italy,” and disregarded tho sauctity of tho Papal 800 by declaring that Romo was tho true Capital of Italy, was not acceptable to Parliament, and his resignation followed. In 18G7 Ratazzi again bocamo Premier, but retired in a fow months. Ho has sinco hold no oQlclal position, hut has boon an eloquent exponent of tho vlows of tho Opposition to tho reactionary party in tho Italian Parliament. THE DEFEAT OF JUDGE LAWRENCE. . Wo Imvo characterized tho defeat of Judge Lawrence no tho most brutal outrage over.per petrated in tho State of Illinois under the aus pices of universal suffrage. One such transac tion is enough to sot every reflecting person to musing on tho probable outcome of an elective Judiciary. Upon a full survey of-tho United States wo cannot discern any 'district, of equal population and territory, more likely to reach an intelligent aud safe conclusion, upon a given state of facts, than tho Fifth Judicial District of Illinois. It is full of schools, aud newspa pers, and pulpits, and thrifty, breezy villages, and reasonably prosperous farms, with com paratively few persons of foreign birth, and those of an exceptionally cloar-hoodod and vir tuous sort. And yot, with all thoso promising materials, tho Fifth Judicial District has perpe trated through tho ballot-box a flagrant aud in excusable outrage—no less than rejecting with contumely a Judge who has declared tho law to ho whal it is— rejecting him for tho reason that ho has so declared It. It Is not necessary, in or der to characterize this proceeding, to recount that Judge Lawronco is tho foremost jurist of tho State and ono of tho foremost in tho nation ; that in tho decision for which ho has’boou oust ed all tho members of tho Supremo Court concurred with him | that oust ing Judge Lawronco will not mako tho law different from what it is; and that ousting all tho other Judges will not mako it different. Thoso things scarcely aggravate tho offense. Rejecting a Judge because ho is honest, courageous, and uncompromising as to tho claims of truth is a practice which needs only to be generally adopted In the United Stales in order to plnnge the people into the boiling water of anarchy, to bsonpo thouep to the more tolera ble olimato of despotism,' as franco has done throe or four times within two generations. The causes which contributed to Judge Law rence's defeat woro thrdo or four-fold, but all had their origin and starting-point lu tho Alton Boilway decision. I, The first cause was that compound of Igno rance and fraud falsely denominated 41 Farmers' Convention. 1 * It is as well settled as anything can bo that the Princeton Convention, at which Mr. Craig was nominated, was not a farmers’ convention in the sense of being representative of the farmers of the District. It was a hastily assembled conclave of farmers, loafers, and rail road employes, In which the two first-named classes preponderated In numbers ns much as • the Inst preponderated In sagacity. It was pre sided over by a roilrood employe, and it nomi nated a as Its candidate for Judge of the Supremo Court. It was speedily repudiated by tho Farmers' Association of La Salle, tho largest county, in the district, and by tho officers of tho Farmers' Association of Knox, and by tho Secretary of tho State Farmers' Asso ciation. Nevertheless, it was heralded abroad as tho Farmers' Convention, and Mr. Craig wont into tho contest with tho prestige of tho 41 Farmers’ candidate " in an agricultural district 5 and mul titudes of farmers, with only tho most bszy no tion of what woro tho real foots in. tho case, gave their votes for tho ticket 00 labeled. n. Tho Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Rail* road Company, tbo corporation against which tho Princeton Convention was ostensibly assem bled, supported Craig, justifying themselves upon this ground,—that hero is a movement avowedly designed to mako and unmake Judges, according as they will decide this way or that way, a movement to turn law and tho adminis tration of law npsldo down, a movement specially intended to injure vs. Wo did not inaugurate this game, but we.,can play at it. Self-preserva tion is tho first law of nature. If wo are not to bavo Judges elected to decide tho law to bo what it is; if tho Supremo Court is to bo a put up job; if wo aro to Layo hired men on tho Bench, wo will have our own hired man there rather than another. Mixed with this species of self-justification was probably nstrong’uudor current of ill-feeling against Judge Lawronoo, for and on account of tho Alton Railway decision, which, as wo havo heretofore shown, woa really inimical to railway pretensions and 'in favor of tho people. That this Railroad Company did support Craig in tho recent election, wo have not tbo slightest doubt. Tho reasoning by which they justified themselves was specious, short-sighted, and im moral. They should havo said rather, Wo will sink or swim, live or die, survive or perish, with the Intelligent, fair-minded,’ law-abiding portion of tho community. There, and not elsewhere, is our safety. That Mr. Craig is under pledges to the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad, wo do not affirm. But that ho is under stronger obli gations to them than to any supposed Formers* Convention is apparent to every discerning mind. If any person supposes that tho railroads are likely to got more unpalatable decisions from Craig than from Lawrence, ho is grandly mis taken. Tbo probabilities aro largely the other way. m. Knox County has been torn for years with a sort of Modoo war on the county-seat question. Judgo Lawrence resides at Galesburg, and Mr. Craig at Knoxville—tho two towns so long disputing possession of tho county Court- House. Accordingly, Galesburg gives 1,600 ma jority for Lawrence, and Knoxville gives 600 majority for Craig, while tho towns affiliated with Knoxville furnish as many more,—most of those votes being given without tho slightest reference to tho legal qualifications, attainments, learning, dignity, or character of tho candidates voted for. Apart from this county-seat issue Knox County would bavo given nearly its entire vote for Judgo Lawrence, and would havo elected him. IV. Tho fourth Influence working against Judge Lawrence consisted of two newspapers published in Chicago, ouo of which represents malico, and tho other mediocrity. The former had taken offense at a decision of tho Supreme Court in a libel suit in which it was defendant, and whoro tho opinion hod been written by Judge Law rence'. Tho latter had boon lined by the Supremo Court for imbecility. Tho Chicago Times fur nished tho ideas, by which tho Craig light was kept going, and tho Chicago Jour nal furnished tho lack of ideas—both being equally important. Both theso pa pers lied with tenacity and lavishness throughout tho campaign—tho Times ably and tho Journal stupidly, but both with effect. Another Chicago newspaper, which claims to bo tho formers* friend par excellcnoo, took a neutral position, lest it should scorn to bo in dependent In something, —it being tho standing boast of this nowspapor'that it is “Independ ent in nothing.** Wo do not know how far tho temper of tho. Supremo Court may bo affected by tho defeat of Judge Lawrence, but wo can very easily translate tho language addressed to them in tho recent election. It implies that unless the Judges are smart enough and bnso enough to spy out popular sentiment in advance and pander to U;—unless they arc willing to declare tho law to ho what it is not, in oho dionoo to a temporary prejudico bogotton by low prlcos and hard times upon tho body of igno rance,— thoy arc to bQßuporeodod in their turn by thoso who will. That If, in a moloo of this kind, they offend a powerful corporation by holding tho scales of juatioo ihon Us influ ence will bo turned against them also. That if they offend a newspaper they nro to ho lam pooned and dragooned to tho ond of tho chap ter. And generally, that if they perform impar tially the high duties belonging to their position, they aro to bo driven from tho Bench with ignominy. This la tho language addressed to thorn by ono of tho most intelligent constit uencies in tho State, or in tho United States. Very likely it will havo no offoot upon them ex cept to stir their indignation. Wo holiovo that oVory ono of thorn would rather go to tho poor houso than provo false to tho oath thoy took whon thoy assumed«their oifleos. There is not ono of them who would not kick out of doors any suitor who should seek a private consulta tion with them on auy.oaso ponding iu Court. Wo cannot suppose, therefore, that thoy will al low any improper familiarities to tho majority that thoy would not accord to an individual. Novortholoss, all that can ho dono to undormino and unsettle tho administration of justico bos boon dono in tho defeat of Judgo Lawrence. " nod not the people a right to voto for Mr. Craig ?” somebody will ask. Certainly thoy had, and they hayo a right to tako the oon* THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUTE; FRIDAY, JUNE <J, 1873. sequences. They have a right to boo tho Bench demoralized, and Justice made a game of grab. They have a right to boo decisions sold to tho highest bidder. They have a right to bo fooled oud tricked by astute and powerful corporations. They have a right to loach bloody Instruction, and to sco It return to plague tho inventor. Thoro are n groat many.rights In a republic which are not written down in the Constitution. OUR COUNTRY FRIENDS. Tbo clay of Jubilee has oomo, and with it our Country Cousin and his wife, ruddy and radiant, litho of atop, honest of purpose, and croot of form. There is nobody whom wo all see bo gladly, whoso freshness wo so uniformly envy, whoso force wo respect so much, and upon whom wo so generally depend. It is ho who sends ua onr food, buys our goods, roods our newspapers, oloots our Presidents, and mokes our laws. So wo give him hearty welcome. If anybody supposes that onr Country Cous ins have turned out in such force os they pre sented yesterday, and will present to-day, on our streets, merely for tho pnrposo of hearing the Star-Spanglotl Banner and tho Anvil Chorus, in tho Michigan Southern Depot, ho Is very much mistaken. Our country friend can see os far into a millstone as tho next one, and ho has un derstood all along that tho Jubilee was playing the part tho big drum plays in tho traveling show, that it has merely boon tho moans of an nouncing to tho outsldo world that Rebuilt Chi cago is now in proper trim to rooolvo Us friends. 110 has known all along that thoro was no pre tension to groat musical gymnastics, and that, If thoro had boon snob pretension, it could hot have boon realized in the brief time sot apart for preparation. The Jubilee, though fully lip to tho measure of any reasonable ex pectation, is tho occasion of drawing au audi ence which has como to sco tho most wonderful 1 growth of modern times. It is a little prema ture, perhaps, and it would have boon better to doatpono the gathering till the autumn Exposi tion, when another summer season’s application will have finished up and rounded oIT tho enor mous work which has boon douo within oigbtoon months and with only ono building season. Bat this was tho timo fixed for tho opening of ono of tho largest railroad depots in tho ooun. try, and tho most ologant and spacious hotel In tho world,—tho Grand Pacific. Tho dedication of tho Pacific Hotel is well worth tho attention that has boon drawn to it. It is enough to ropay tho visitor tho orowds that havo gathered at half-faro rates, and as our Country Cousin looks It ovor, while Gilmore's band is play ing across tho street, ho may confidently assure himself that ho is inspecting tho moat gorgeous hostelry under tho oun. Having dono this, ho will start out in search of tho placo whoro tho firo was, and find himself as perplexed as tho Irishman, on hia first visit to London, who couldn’t boo tho town for tho houses. To properly appreciate tho difllcutly ho has in discovering tho burnt-district, ho must romombor that tho il ro covered an area of about 2,600 of donsoly-sottlod territory. During tho short season of eighteen months, tho work ho finds completed represents, not only tho building of tho houses which' ho strains his eye to measure, hut tho clearing away of tho debris* of tho old city. This work has been dene, not by new-comers, but by tho men whoso fortunes wore swept away and whoso life-work was laid low when tho firo camo. Tho marvel of energy which has produced it is scarcely greater than tho marvel of physical force that has boon expended in gath ering together and putting in shape tho wood, and brick, and mortar, and stone, and iron, and marble that make up Now Chicago. Behind both those marvels is tuo groat support of our Oouutry Cousins who .are visiting us torday who demanded an immediate resurrection, and promised to give it more vitality than they in fused into the old life. They have kept their promise, and they may look upon Chicago as mainly tholr own production. It is not .impossible that our country friends now in Chicago fondly imagine that tboy havo brought with them tho busy rush and turmoil which tboy aoo everywhere about thorn in our crowded streets. This is a mistake. It is prob- ably a largo ostlmato to say that thoro aro 25,000 more strangers than usual in Chicago at this time. Thoro aro always enough of them to’ koop tho hotels full. Such a number, iu a city of between 800,000 and 100,000 inhabitants, accus tomed to crowded thoroughfares and a rushing community, would znako but a small impression on tho geuoral aspect of tho city. Thoro may bo ono or two moro hanging on to tho back stop of ovory horse-oar, a little moro elbowing on tho sidewalks, busier dorks in the dry-goods stores, and on oxtra.offort on tho part of Chica go people to koop thoir places iu tho streets; but our Country Cousin may roly upon it that Chica- go is always protty much as ho finds it to-day,— tho eamo turmoil of people, attire, and noises; courtesies and discourtesies, ‘workers and loaf ers, magazines, repositories and hostolrlos, mag** nlflcout stores aud heterogeneous Junk-shops, marblo monuments, and dirty streets,—aud that ho can partake of it iu wolcomo at his good pleasure. .

At half-past 11 o'clock yesterday morning, during a rehearsal In (ho Jubilee building, the members of tho chorus, tho orchestra, and a'small audience wore hor rified by ibo occurrence of an nealdont by which two men wore precipitated from tho apex of tho building to tho floor, a distance of eighty foot. Tho victims of tho accident wore two painters, in tho employ, of' Heath b Mllllgnu, named William Oolloyand Joint Olcson.. The latter was almost Instantly killed,but tho injuries of ‘ tho former, though severe, aro not necessarily, fatal. Tho first Indication of tho fatality was a loud report, like that of a gun-shot, from . tho north ond of tho building. Tho startled spectators had hardly turned their eyes In tho direction from whence tho report proceeded when a man Was soon whirling rapidly downward from iho apex of tho roof, at tho oxtromo north end of tho building, and then to slrlko tho floor with a violence that Jarred the floor. Ho had scarcely touched the planks when another man followed him. One of tho spectators made tho grim remark that it seemed as if a party of persons who -had resolved to commit suleldo ' Wore assembled on tho roof. Tho horror of.' tho people reached its climax only when they had tlmo to discover that ton poor follows .were still clinging to tho iron rods and beams, at the same elevation from which tho others had fallen. Happily they all clung until wllllnghands had rescued them. Their names aro F,; Johnson, T. Carloson, David Dunn, 8. Peterson. O. H. Hannon, Peter Brady, Joseph Johns, John Dlafik, S« Craven, and J. McMahon, i . When tho accident occurred tho men, having finished tho rest of tho roof, had begun to paint tho apex. Tho platform upon which they stood hadi bean; laid upon a treacherous iron boom or, tube, four Incuoa in oiroumforonco, and which was nunpoa od to have an iron rod, passing through it." Tho beam would, however, bavo' sustained tho weight placed upon It tut for a poorly fitting Joint. Two planks of tho scaffolding near tho north wall fortunately caught in some Iron rads, or tho loss of lifo would havo boon at leant doubled. Tho unfortunate man ,who fell first was not immediately killed. Ho struck (bo planking obliquely on his head ond right shoulder. His name was John * Olcson, a Bwode, and a respect able and highly esteemed young nun, alxmt SO years old. All hla teeth wero knocked oat, and his head was mashed flat. Tho wrlthinga of tho suffering 'creature wero pltahlo to witness, but they lasted but a few minutes. Tho second man who foil lighted upon bis feet, lie was for a fow momenta rendered Insensi ble by tho fall, but soon recovered and attempted to draanlmßolf out of tho way of those above him. Tho humanity of tho terrified people quickly relieved him of this tank. Ho was removed to the County Hospital, whore his wife attends him. Unless ho suffered some internal Injuries ho la not hurt fatally. Ilia loft- thigh Is' broken in two places. and the socket of tho right leg at the knee Is badly bruised. Tho Coroner hold an inquest on' tho body of poor Oleson at tho Armory yesterday afternoon. From tho evidence tho jury concluded that tho fatality was acci dental, and with ordinary precaution could not bavo been avoided by Ho alb & Milligan or tholr employes.
