One of the most surprising, yet one
of the moat wmmoa occurrences In
the court, of Justice. Is the conflicting
evidence that arises In nearly every
rase where Important questions are
involved. It has been stated ty those
rtanullar with trtal ut thW
ha never been a case In which all of
the witnesses agreed. It hi claimed
bat a dosen of the moat reputabi
persons in the community may see the
mt incident, and be wholly Impar
tial and unprejudiced, and yet, when
they come to give their evidence be
,ore a court under oath, they wlU con
flict with one another so that rarely
ever do two tell the same story-
There are many reasons assigned for
this peculiar state of affairs In the
trial of cases at law. It la claimed
that all persons have different ways of
looking at things, and often In the
excitement ot Incidents which are lat
er taken Into the courts, the attention
of "different witnesses is called to dif
ferent phases of the affair at the same
time and no two see the same thing
at once. And then It Is claimed that
there Is no perfection on this earth
and every man has more or less prej
udice, and but few are able to lay
this aside when they enter upon the
witness stand, though they are placed
under oath and are called upon to sat
isfy their own conscience by telling
the whole truth as they promised In
their oath. It is claimed that the
natural Inclination for the white race
to take sides In everything, even if It
is ho more than a street dog fight,
that the best citizenship is often found
concealing some of the facts which
conflict with the theory they have
formed regarding the transaction, in
spite of their known high regard for
the truth and their high standing in
te community. Men whose integrity Is
above reproach, whose word Is their
bond, and against whom no one would'
dare speak reproachfully In public, it
Is claimed, are often not exempt from
this rule of permitting their preju
dice through interest or belief hi the
right of their side of the cause to lead
them astray from seeing the whole
truth in the case and telling it in the
courts. If Individuals were told this
to their faces it would probably not be
afe for the frank one who made it his
business to inform them, yet the
statement from a general standpoint
is not denied but generality agreed
upon as true.
If this be true of ou most intelli
gent and most prominent citzenship,
no wonder that the ignorant and crim
inal classes and their frineds are guil
ty of the same discrepancies. Jf there
were no disputes as to facts In rases
Juries would never be needed. 1 Then If
Juries are required when only men of
"unimpeachable" character testify ' in
the, courts to pass upon the point of
who is telling the truth, and often fail
to agree after hours of uninterrupted
and impartial deliberation, it Is no
wonder that they are required In cases
where the vicious and ignorant are
Involved, and It is no wonder that
they often disagree and sometimes ren
der erroneous verdict
The case Involving the murder of
Gabriel Jarvl' norf pending before the
coroner's Jury Is a, typical Illustration
of conflicting evidence. Two witnesses
swear trmt the murdered man was
not drunk while a number of witnesses
swear that he was drunk. Mr. Rah-
konen swore that he did not know
anything about the murder until the
following morning, and bis wife swears
that she woke him and told him about
it that night. He swore that he
taw deceased lying in front of his door
blocking the door so that he could not
open It. His wife swears that he went
to the window, raised It and saw Ga
briel through the window. The wife
and Mat Jarvl stated that on the night
of the murder the old man was swear
ing down stairs that he would kill
them' all Mrs. Rahkonen and Steph
anus Jarvl swor before 'the; coroner's
Jury yesterday morning , that the old
man said they were all orasy and thai
he would have them tent to the Insane
asylum at Salem. This was the ex
tentot Ms threats as they heard them.
While every witness about the house
heard distinctly everything that Oa
oriel Jarvl said that night before the
son opened the door and shot htm,
every ose so far swears that he did not
hup eh nlatol discharged. Mrs. Rah-
konen, who was within a few feet of
the place where the revolver was fired,
did not hear it, although she had heard
the old man threatening to send them
all to Salem and heard him KicKing
at the door, and even heard Mm walk
around the house to the rear door.
Stephanus. the 16-year-old brother, al
so heard this, but neither of them
heard the report of the revolver.
It Is only another illustration of the
fact that witnesses do not see and hear
things alike, or that their jnejudlc
in the question Involved overrides
their memory and the disagreeable
facfs are forgotten.
But in the face of all conflicting evi
dence, through prejudice or otherwise.
intelligent Juries under the Instruction
of learned courts usually find a prop
er verdict in the end.
