This is certainly an excellent tes-
timonial. Coining as it does from
old neighbors who are qualified to
speak. Some very hard things
were said immediately after the
killing of Gillenwater, which were
the result of the heat of excitement
attendant upon such a deplorable
affair and an effort was made to
paint the case as black as possible,
but the more sober minded ones
saw plainly, that it was not a case
that called for summary ven-
geance. As we understand it young
Briggs will come iu at the proper
time and stand his trial as both he
and his friends claim that he be-
lieved that his life was in danger
when he shot. We have 110 use for
a gambling hall, but we cannot
make any difference between men
who frequent such places and the
law should be administered be-
tween men who fight in such ph
the same as if they were lighting
on the street. Good men either
young or old do not go to such
places, but if we have any synij
thy to spare it is for the misguided
young man who goes to such
places as an old man has no claim
| to any thing of the kind. We dont
believe that young Briggs would
kill a man for the purpose of rob-
bery as he had no need to do any-
thing of the kind and we have the
utmost confidence in the honesty
of I.. L. Briggs. He has served our
city 111 an official capacity and al-
ways proved true to his trust and
in his trouble he has always ex-
pressed a desire to have the trou-
ble of his son judged 011 its merits.
