Now we believe an incident so unnatural
should be stated without suppressing anything
revolting in it or adding to it a word that
would weaken the sentiment it ins'pires if in-
deed it should be mentioned at all. What a
gigantic factor is the little type in producing

This has so little of the oriental style in it
and so much of the American that the reader
will not Be supprised to learn that the dis-
patch is dated at Houston and that the Asia
referred to is not one of the four quarters of
the globe but a small town in Texas. We
doubt if friendly games of cards are played in
that way on any continent but this.
The detailed accounts of the celebration of
Garibaldi's birthday as furnished by Euro-
pean exchanges is indeed interesting. Among
other things a grand national monument to
the liberator ol Italy was arranged to be
erect 'd in Rome aye in that Rome which lie
yearned so long to free from papal thraldom.
To this the I'alian Government alone contri-
buted about $6000:0 and the monument will
be fitting to the grandeur and importance of the
noble struggle which Garibaldi boldly complet-
ed. At Stafford House St. James London
the residence of the Duke of Sutherland where
the Duke received Garibaldi when he visited
that cily and where the writer first grasped the
hand of the hero the Italians of England
erected a fine marble bust commemorative of
the Duke's hospitality to Garibaldi in 1864.
This was a fitting recognition to the great
hero but he lives in history and his best and
most noble monument is the work he accom-
plished wmit or khiiii.

SUIICH.VNT MVJ(N AND HIS MIY9TUK. I
Public justice is of many varieties. All are
captivating. We do not at this moment
recall any cases more beautiful than that of
Sergeant Mason. The Sergcnt was tried by
court martial for his unsuccessful effort to
save the Government the enormous cost of
strangling Guiteau. He had $12 a month
and rations on which he supported "Betty
and the" baby." This was not enticing to
lawyers. Hut subscriptions were just begin
ing for Uetty and the baby. Shyter lligelow
has a sharp nostril and snuffing a fee afar off
seems in sort to have appeared for Mason.
Ilefore a mechanic is legally entitled to pay
for his work he must show that it is done in
a workmanlike manner. He will be turned
out of court in the absence of such proof
when called for. Hut it is not so with the
shyster A shyster may do his work any way
or not do it -at all or know
how to do 'it nnd recover all the
same. It has been Co with' Shyster Higelow
He did not do his work nor know how to do
it nor apparently to think of doing it. Scr
geant Maion was tried by court martial
found guilty of something and sentencrd to
eight years imprisonment in the penitentiary
That Shyster Higelow appeared for Sergeant
Mason before that court was not commonly
known but the record attests the fact. After
sentence and execution the Judge Advocate
who had proseculcd .represented to the Pres
ident that by the Article of War Sergeant
Mason could not be tried by court martial.
A specific article which he cited by its 11 u 111
ber provided that the army .must be in actual
service under war regulations aod that
hence the Sergeant had been convicted
by an incompetent tribunal. Of course
his sentence is of no legal effect. Hut
the civil court could not interfere
and declare it so. It was exclusively the
province of the President as we understood
it tho Commander-in-Chief of the army.
The President for some inscrutable reason
has not performed this act of duty and ol jus-
tice has not given Sergeant M son his liberty
has not given him back his good name which
could not be filched from him by an incom-
petent tribunal. An incompetent court can
not make convicts. We regret thit not on
account of the Masons only but on President
Arthur's account. It is a grave wrong which
only he can remedy and much of which is
now beyond remedy and calls for .recom
pense at the hands of the Government.
Hut if Mason had counsel before the court
martial how came he to be condemned ? Did
not counsel put in a plea to the jurisdiction
and submit the articles of war which would at
once have satisfied the court composed only
ol honorable gentlemen and soldiers that it
was without jurisdiction when Sergeant
Mason-would immediately have gone home
to Hetty and the baby J No the Sergeant
had no counsel j he had Syster Higelow and
Shyster Higelow had capacious nostrils rather
than a capacious mind. Seeing through those
long summer days the subscriptions for
Hetty and the baby swell to blinding propor
tions he scented a fee and at once occupied
himself so to speak dialling his cue. Final-
ly he came down lik: the proverbial hawk on
the June bug And what he came down upon
was the subscription-fund of Hetty and the baby
Paragraphists laughed at bhyster Higelow
They punched hlnVmetaphorically in the ribs
twirled ideal digits at the extremity of imag-
inary nasal members in derision of the shyster.
Hut the laugh is now on the other side of the
paragraphists' mouths. In fact it is the shys-
ter's laugh. He has found another shyster
who has restrained Betty and the baby from
withdrawing their money or any of it from
the bank till they shall have paid Shyster
Higelow his fee. Hut we hope the people
who furnished the fund will take the matter
up and see if it can be so diverted by this
pair of shysters. It is certainly a beautiful
spectacle 01 puouc jusuce 11115 01 seeing
Shyster Higelow take from the mother and
child the means of living in consideration of
having by his incapacity caused them the
loss ol father and husband.
We notice that Stephen W. Dorsey has ad-
dressed a smart nud characteristic letter to
General Martin his successor in the Secreta
ryship of the National Republican committee
in which the great Star route exempt presents
himself anew in the light of the great iuan of
the Republican party. That Mr. Dorsey will
find it very difficult to obtain any recognition
from the Republican party or from any rea-
sonably respectable man in it ought to be
evident to him from the incident which he
himself relates in a passage of his letter to-
wit: That a "miserable and con ardly assault"
had been made upon him at the last meeting
of the committee and -not one among the 40
.members present had the courage or man-
hood to present it." Mr. Dorsey should be
able to realize that something vastly different
from courage and manhood was needed for
his defense in that or any assembly denotes
plainly enough for even him to understand
what his standing in the National committee
was and is for tlie ridiculous farce of the
Star route trial has not changed it and
he will find it the same elsewhere. It is not
; worth while for the great acquitted to surfeit
the papers with letters and speeches about
himself and his dead past. It and he are
