decidedly commonplace loolrin females none of them yoinig aud only two of them with any claims to bcaiity of face or figure They were allin tights that did not fit them and that were very dirty and wore anything but pleasing to the eye The audience sat patiently through about half tho first part whenono disgusted indi vidual yelled This seemed to strike a popular chord and it was echoed from all parts of the house and when the curtain went down on the first part the house was in an uproar and so it continued throughout the entire performance Not a person was in the audience who did not join in criticising tiao pofformancc During the last half of tho show fully half of the audience stood on then1 chairs and yelled It was a demonstration of disapproval such as has seldom if seen in this

it was alleged among oilier things that law under which sentence was passed inliictort greater punishment than the law in force at the time of the com mission of the deed in that it added solitary confinements forbid rela tives and friends visiting the condemned and made it uncertain just when con victed men would be hanged thereby put ting them iu fear that each moment may be their last Tho court through Justice Fuller holds that the provisions of the new law do add to the punishment of condemned men and it is therefore post fficto and void Solitary confinement ho bays is decidedly an extra punishment having a decided tendency to make men fatuous and weakminded It is therefore held to be tho duty of the court to discharge the prisoners but as there is no question that they were lawfully convicted the sentence only being irregular it is directed that tho warden of the penitentiary notify the AttoruerGeneral of the State of tho time of their release so that he may im mediately
