Muru Erone of the Fine an 8. Editor daily l it. It has been stated by some of the multitudinous newspapers Iti Texas i by no Means vouch Lor the Correct Ness of the statement that the Perpe Trator of a recent homicide has six scalps pendent from his Belt and has himself never received a scratch in these six fatal affairs. As he Yerenas already to have killed his full complement of men and As there Are probably men in Texas who Nave not yet killed and salted Down a single Man and More who have not bagged Over one Man a piece and 100.000 who have not killed Over two each it is very wrong to allow a few favored persons a monopoly in this business. If one citizen of Texas has a right to kill six men then the same right ought to be accorded to every other citizen. Asa part of this right of killing six men is also the right of being acquitted six times by the juries. These acquittals almost follow As a matter of course. Nearly every jury contains a half a dozen men who have slain from two to four men and of course a fellow feeling makes us wondrous none of us care to Hurt a Man who has done no More than we ourselves have done. Convicting a Man of murder in one of the last and has gone clean oat of fashion. The Man who has killed the greatest number of men becomes a first class hero and it is impossible to convict such a Man. The Indian hav ing the most scalps is the biggest Man. Murder has become one of the Fine should be taught in our schools and colleges. The Art consists in getting the drop on fellow is in shooting him whilst asleep unarmed walking off from us in entire ignorance of being in any danger or in catching him off his guard and unprepared. This is a very great Art. We Fust wait for opportunities of drawing our pistol and getting in the first deadly shot chivalry courage and Equality in the terms of combat Are out of Date the Only thing is to to arrange our Campaign As to kill our Man without danger to kill our Man without giving him any Chance what Soever of defending Hie life against an in for seen attack. The prime object is to kill your Man without endangering your own life and to do this demands the greatest courage vigilance coolness and tact. No Tyro in the homicide business can shoot Down an unarmed or defenceless will have Over some foolish qualms about fair play and give his adversary a Chance of slipping in a shot. This very wrong. It is very unprofessional. It is Mere bungling Over a Nice Job. The professional killer throws away no chances and incurs no is master of the wonderful Art of get Ting the drop on a Means shooting him in the Back whilst unarmed or when he is wholly his guard. There is nothing More dangerous than an unarmed person except a Man whose Back happen to be turned to you and the Only Way of dealing with such dangerous people is to shoot them unawares. Dead men Are not dangerous juries think Only of the tremendous peril that besets the murderer and of the injustice of punishing him for an act which every juror has committed or is ready to commit. No thought is Given to the wrong that has been done the dead Man. He should have kept his eyes and have gotten the drop on his Slayer and filled his body with bullets. He was too slow. The plea of self defence comes in Toady and fits in nicely. All murdered men were blood thirsty demons and were in the act of killing the r slayers when death overtook them. The juries kindly take this View of the matter and give the murderer not merely a discharge from past offences but a License to slay fresh victims. You see a new Era has dawned upon us. Old things Are done away and All things have become whatever smells of Antiquity is foolishness and a fraud. All the men who lived before us were idiots. The Bible has been exploded riddled and blown to at oms. It was a Mere fable. Of course the commandment thou Shalt not must share the Fate of the Bible. There is no prohibition placed on the killing of men. A future exis tence is pure Humbug a scarecrow to frighten men. If there should be a future life All men will enter into it As they would do at a free lunch or an auction without a ticket or an examination. Where then is the harm done in killing a Man advanced thinkers have exploded and expunged the past and its foolish creeds and emancipated our minds from superstition and prejudice. Man is the arbiter of his own Fate and the sole judge of his own acts and no Appeal lies from his decisions. Murder was a crime according to the old exploded creeds now it is on a Par with the killing of a Snake or a gnat. By All Means the Art of killing without endangering our lives should be taught in our schools and colleges. How to get the is the Art. X. M. U. S. Admiral Mccann Chili for courtesies extended.
