It wtll require two or three weeks to complete the examination. An irhportant decisión has been rendered by the suprerae court of the United States, revcrsing the jndgment of the Bupreme court of Missouri, and rsmanding the case for further proceediugs. The decisión was in the murder case of Chas. T. Kring against the state of Missouri, a brief 6jnopsis of which we appeud : Kring, the plaintiff in error, on January4, 1875, shot and killed awoman named Dora Brewster. At tbc March term of the St. Louis criminal court in the same year he wbs indictcd for murder in the flrst degree, tried and found guilty, and sentenced to be hanged. Upon aopeal the judgment of the criminal qourt was reversed and a new trial ordered. Two more trials followed, in both of which the jury failed to agree. Upon the fourth trial the prisoner made an agreemeut with the state's attorney to plead guilty of murder in the second degree, upon conditlon that bis sentence be imprisonment for a period uot longer than ten years. Under this plea he was sentenced to impri6onment or 25 years. He again appealed and the iudgment of the lower court was reversed by the6uprcme eourt and the cause a secoud time remanded. Upon hls next trial the prisoner refused to witlidraw bis plea of murder in the second dcree or to make another plea, whereupou the ourt ordered a plea of not guilty to be entered or him and be was again tried for murder in he llrst degree, fouud guilty, aud seutenced to cath. He appealed successively to the court f appoals auü to the supremo court of the tate. In both of these tribunals the judgment ind eutenee of the court below were altlrmed. enteuce was theu ordered to be executed Feljary 34, 1882, but before that time Judge Miler of toe United States supremo court granted writ of error, and the case was brought to the upreme court for review. Under the eonstituon and laws of Missouri in foree at the time ie offense was committed and the indictmeut 'ound, the prisoner could not be tried for niurer in the lirst degree after he has been conicted or pleaded guilty of murder in the secnd degree, but under the constitution of 1S75 s coustrued by the supreme court of Missouri, ne indicted for murder in the first degree ud eonvicted or senteuced on a plea of uilty of murder in the second degree, may be ain tried for murder in the flrst depree in case of appeal and reversal, t was contended in all the courts by the prisuer's counsel that a section of the state conitutioQ of 1875, adopted subsequent to ie fludine of the indictment, could no( be apied to the prisoner's case, that it chauged the unishment, that it was au "ex post facto" an-, and as such repugnant to the oonstitution ' the United States. Justice Miller, in a long nd earufully wrltten opinión, rendered the desion of this eourt which may be briefl y sumed up as follows : We are of opinión that uy law passed after the eommission of an of¦use, which in relation to that oflense or its onsequenees after the situation of a party to is disadvantage is an "ex post facto" law. No ne eau be criminally puuiihed in this coun¦ry except accordiDg to the law preecrioed or his Kovernment bv the Kovprciam -nioniy u&ofe ïnc Tmpultu ottense was comlitted and which existed as law at the time. 'he provisión of the constitution of Missouri hich denies to a plaintiff in error the benefi, hieh the previous law gave him of acquittal f a charge of murder in the first degree, on onvietion of murder in the second degree, it s to his case an "ex po6t facto" law wlthiu ie meaning of tbc constitution of the United tates aud for the error of the supreme court I Missouri in holding otherwlse its judgment s reversed and the case remanded to it witb irection to reverse the judgment of the crimnal court of St. Louis and for such further rooeedings as are not inconsistent with this pinlon. Chief Justiee Waite and Justiee rady, Gray and Matthews dissented. This deislou, rendered by a bare majority of one, nally relieves the prisoner from the sentence f death which bas been hangiug over him ior ie past seven years. CRIME. W. C.
