Excerpt from State of Illinois, Supreme Court, Third Grand Division, April Term, A. D. 1866: Madison Y. Johnson, Vs. J. Russel Jones, John C. Hawkins, Oliver P. Hopkins, Elihu B. Washburne and Bradner Smith; Appeal From Jo Daviess County; Abstract, Brief The present prosecution was instituted as a personal vindica tion of our conduct and actions, and as a means of asserting a principle dear to every American Freeman, and not for pecuniary gain. The contest was a long, and an unequal one, in which, not only governmental protection was thrown around the defendants, but political bias, partizan hatred, and malignant prejudice, growing out of the nature of the charges made, that were well calculated, under the frenzy that then existed, to overwhelm one. But con scious that in the end, if we but performed our duty, justice and right would prevail, and the mad fanaticism that swept over the land like a besom of destruction, would spend its fury, and leave at least, personal security under any form our government might assume.
