Dispatches from Pittsburgh announce that the bodies of the Biddle brothers, who were slain by detectives while trying to elude capture, were exhibited to upwards of 2000 person on the day before final interment. The authorities encouraged this horde of curiosity seekers and saw nothing improper in the exhibition of the remains. It is quite probable, however, that the thinking world will condemn this practice of making social attractions of the bodies of murderers and cutthroats. It is this sort of thing that creates criminals. Had they been exhibited when alive to admiring and gaping throngs, the Biddles would undoubtedly have enjoyed the experience. The sooner we abandon this practice of making heroes of our criminals the better it will be for the safety of society. — Shreveport Times.

The question remains, however, where is the authority or example for expending $60,000 or $60 or $6 or 6 cents to equip a special embassy to go to Europe and pay tribute to the coronation of a monarch? — Washington Post.
