Alderman Jnehne was convicted on Saturday of bribes for Iiiw vote the Broadway Surface Railway. Nearly all the aldermen with Jathne at the time the Broadway Surface Railway Company ob- tained ita franchise by fraud and corruption have been indicted by the grand jury. The trial of Jaehne has been looked npon as a although this evidence against him wan not regarded aH etrony a.s the Dis- trict Attorney possesses against some of his co-conapiratora. Great care was taken by the prosecution to fielect a jury of superior intelligence. The verdict shows it was composed of the highest order of manhood. Ita memncrn were beyond tho reach of tho jury whose wits wcro exhausted in a desperate effort to bring about u disagree- ment. Even tho defiant jury fixi-rs long ngo despaired of securing twelve invn who would dare acquit the Their only hope was for voxa- tioiiH delayn and eventual loss of interest on the part of the prosecution. But their lanfc and only hope is dispelled by tho ver- dict. Judge Barrett proven unlike Car- Bedford and the corrupt jurists fell from grace and went down iu the crash that consigned Garvey and otherTnmmany Hall thieves to political oblivion. It was tho condensed wrath of public opinion directed with cyclonic foico that destroyed the Tweed King and its corrupted and corruptible judges a decade and a half years ngo. Tho good work of reform inaugurated by outraged public opinion in tbono days was but imperfectly performed. Many Uneven equalJy aft guilty t'Heaped ontiroly. ISos.s Tweed bore the blunt of pmiinhmenl. that should have been meted to others with almost heroic- fortitude. Lack of justice at that time served as au encouragement rather than destroyed tho desire to commit fraud. The Tweed Ring merely abated tho thieving propeuaitiey of politicians to rob and plunder the peopln of their money and their franchises. The escape of tho uncon- victcd members the Tweed served 119 an example and to simi- lar rings and combinations throughout the laud. Few cities and 'towns or villages have existed sinco the verdict against the Tweed King thieves without their minia- ture rings and piratical combinations. the downfall of the Tweed gnug mny ho accepted as Iho dawn of an era of municipal fraud and corruption in America that bus grown with alarming pnco to the present day. Wo Iwve lind them in Brad- but in a mild form when compared to the aggressive actions of rings in other cities. Onr water works ami other frauds were pigmies alongside of the aklenmiuic frauds in the gus trust nnd street car frauds in tho Quaker City or the street paving frauds of Baltimore fttid Chicago. We Imvo outlived them and their exposure will likely serve as awholsesomo lesson in municipal nffnirs. Judge Barrett and the twelve intelligent jurymen aided by fearless and honest prosecuting attorney with a corps of able assistants nnd detectives have culled a halt fraud in Gotham. The people of that wronged city have excellent reasons for hoping Hint tho Court of if it should be called will sustain the ver- dict of the court below. The present and rising generations of Gotham and tho whole of America can be greatly benefited and he COmingly pnrificd by consign tog tho to Sing Sing and Au- burn. They nro fit companions for Ward and awimllers of all kinds. The times are ripe for just such punishment ns tho people expect to see visited upon tho Give them the full penalty of the law. fl p ft1 t ff'J m X ATLANTIC RAMAY.
