S NOT S PANACEA
Secretary Taft Says Proced
ure Could Not Be Wisely
Adopted in Philippines.
ABUSED IN UNITED STATES
Judge's Power so Minified That
Counsellor Defense in Criminal
Cases is Able to Put Jurors
Under Hypnotic Spell.
NEW HAVEN, Conn., June 26. Thi,
Yale sonior classes of the college antl
Sheffield scientific departments of thn
university held their class day exercises
today. In addition to these exercises the
annlveroary of the Yale Law School and
of the medical school, meetings of the
law school alumni and the usual inde
pendent commencement week of the Yale
Incorporation, wore Interesting events of
the very full programme. Secretary of
War Taft was the principal speaker at
the law school exercises.
Secretary Taft contrasted the two great
systems of law, the Roman, or civil law,
and the Anglo-Saxon, or common law,
as applied to the administration of co
lonial possessions. Americans arc apt to
bo narrow in their prejudices in favor
of the common law, and prone to think
that there is vory little to learn from
the civil law. which can be usefully
adopted by a government In which the
liberty of the individual Is held so sacred,
the Secretary said:
"The first impulse of the American
lawyer is to apply the writ of habeas
cbrpus, trial by Jury and other means
of preserving the rights of the in
dividual as a pariacca to the government
and criminal procedure of our new pos
sessions, but careful Investigation leads to
a much more conservative attitude in
respect to the changes needed In the
existing Spanish procedure."
Proves Failure in Porto Rico.
Secretary Taft declared that trial by
Jury had proved a failure in Porto Rico,
and the oxperlence had shown that it
could not wisely be adopted in the Phil
ippines. Ho declared further that in our
own Jurisprudence It was by. no means
clear that trial by jury in civil cases is
an unmixed good. The abolition of jury
in civil cases, with proper appeal, would
not, he thought, deprive any litigant of
an impartial hearing.
The Inttttutlon of trial by Jury has
rome to be regarded as a fetish to
such an extent that Stato Legislatures have
exalted the power of the Jury and diminished
the power of the court In the hearing: of
criminal cases. The function of the Judge la
limited to that of the moderator In a re
HeIoub assembly. The counsel for the de
fense, relying on the diminished power of
the court, creates by dramatic art. and harp
ing on the Importance of unimportant de
tails, a false atmosphere In the courtroom,
which the Judge Is powerless to dispel, and
under the hypnotic influence of which the
counsel Is able to lead the Jurors to vote as
Jurors for a verdict- which, after all the ex
citement of the trial has passed away, they
are unable to support as men.
Many Homicides; Few executions.
And now what has been the result In this
country? Since 18S5 in the United States
there have been 131.t51 murders and homi
cides and there havo been 22SQ executions.
In 18S5 the number of murders was 180S. In
1!04 It had increased to 812. The number
of executions In 1685 was 108. In 1004 the
number was 110. This startling Increase In
the number of murders and homicides as
compared with the number of executions
tells the story.
As murder Is on, the Increase, so are all
offenses of the felony claps, and there can
be no doubt that they will continue to In
crease unless the criminal laws are enforced
with more certainty, more "uniformity, more
severity than they now are.
Certainly the rooult of the American crim
inal procedure as distinguished from the
English criminal procedure does not encour
age us to think that It would be wise to In
troduce into the Philippine Islands a system
of Jury trial which now prevails In most of
tho states, especially under the restrictions
of the power of the court, which we find as
We go wet In this country. The cure for
this growing cancer In the body politic may
be found in statutory amendments.
Our country Is disgusted by the number of
lynchlngs that occur both In the North and
in the South. Nothing but a radical im
provement in our administration of criminal
law will prevent the growth in the number
of lynchlngs in the I'nlted States.

BIG GUN IS TOO EXPENSIVE
Government Will Probably Build
No More of 16 -Inch Type.
NEW YORK, June 26. The ordnance
experts of the United States Army are
said to have practically decided that the
16-inch gun, from which so much was
expected, is not practicable as a weapon,
and a decision rby the War Department
to abandon tho type Is anticipated. Only
One of these guns has been made so far,
and that one is now at Sandy Hook.
The experiment, while showing that the
guns could do what was expected In one
war. have nevertheless convinced the ex
perts that as a weapon it is too costly.
Colonel Greer, chief of ordnance of the
Department of the East, said that while
It had not been decided to discard the
gun now at Sandy Book, it was not likely
in his opinion that the Government would
ever have another made,
The gun." he said, "was ordered about
seven years ago. when it was decided to
increase the caliber of our largest wea
pons for coast defense from' 32 to 16
inches. At that time England was hav
ing a number of such guns made and
great things were predicted for them. All
of the English guns were failures. Ours
has been fired perhaps half a dozen times
in proving It. In one way it was a
success, at! it has done all that was pre
dicted for it in range and effectiveness.
There is no doubt of the result if it ever
"On the other hand, however, every dis
charge of the gun is tremendously costly
in the amount of labor required and in
the expense of the charge. The gun is a
little more likely, perhaps, to miss the
target than a smaller gun, and a miss is
pretty costly. Taking it all in all, it
would seem as though several guns of
smaller caliber would bo more effective
than a lC-lnch, gun.
"It Is not at all likely, in my opinion,
that the Government will ever build an
other one. although, of course, the gun
now at Sandy Hook will probably remain
The Government had planned to build
40 such guns. 18 to be placed at Sandy
Hook, ten at San Francisco, eight at Bos
ton and four at Hampton Roads. The
great point made for the gun was that
one shot would sink a battleship if hit.
Its ranee was about 21 miles. The pro
jectile is 64 inches long and weighs 2370
pounds. In early experiments it was
found that more than half a tori "of pow
der, costing" J263. was needed to fire the
projectile. The latter costs $600. About
three times as many men were required
to handle the 16-inch gun as were needed
to care for a 12-inch.

CADETS DROWN IN BUNKS
Danish Training Schooner Sunk In
Collision With British Steamer.
COPENHAGEN, June 26. A serious
disaster occurred last night near here,
when the Danish cadet training schooner
Georgstaf was rammed by the British
steamer Ancona. The Georgstaf sank In
one and one-half minutes. Twenty-two
cadets were drowned and 57 rescued.
The boys were all in their bunks at the
time of tho disaster. The night was over
cast, but it was not so dark that objects
could be seen at some distance.
The Ancona was considerably damaged
along her water line. The port authori
ties have placed an embargo on the An
cona, which will remain here until the in
quiry Into the collision Is completed.
Thus far only a single body has been
recovered by the divers, who have gone
down to the wreck.
First Officer Myhre. of the Georges tar,
attributes the accident to the Ancona
changing her course. He said the An
oona's bow crashed seven feet into the
training schooner's side, bringing down
the latter's masts and tigging and pre
venting any of the cadets from gaining
the deck. Those who were not entagled
in the wreckage sprang on board the
Ancona and assisted In launching the
lifeboats. Myhrc himself Jumped Into the
water and rescued many boys who were
entangled is the rigging.
(The Georgstaf was a schooner of 206
registration, and was 103 feet long. Ap
parently she was a training vessel for
the mercantile marine, and was owned
by a private firm of Copenhagen.)

GUNSHU PASS, June 25. Many dis
patches reaching here through the of
ficial paper, which is edited for the
army, make the conditions under whieh
the proposed peace is to ho reached
very indifferently understood.
In consequence of events at Wash
ington a military initiative for an
armistice has been expected, but al
though Generals Linievitch and Kuro-
patkia express the conviction that
Russia is drifting toward peace, no
action looking to an armistice has yet
been taken. On the contrary, tho com
manders appear to regret that at th
time when the army has reached its
maximum strength it is likely to bo
deprived of victory.
Numerous small bodies of Japaneso
scouts have appeared in the regions of
cither Russian flank, and it Is feared
they were intended to screen tho turn
lng operations of the Japanese, as ue-
tore the battle of Mukden.
Chinese report that flanking move
ments have been already taken, but
the Russian staff denies this.

latter date a Japanese attempt to dls
lodge the Russian outposts in the val
ley of the Kao was repulsed, while
the Russians in the Hallungchen dis
trict dislodged the Japaneso outposts
at Nanshancbcng and advanced south
