THE JURY SYSTEmX.
The oft-repeated experience of courts
in attempting to secure a jury in cases
which have attracted general attention,
and in devoting weeks in the selection
of a jury, has led many able jurists to
discuss some substitute for jury trials.
Tbe expense and delays incident to a
jury trial, the temptation to lawyers to
pettifog and mislead jurors, and the fre
quent miscarriage of justice by reason of
tbe prejudice, ignorance and dishonesty
of individual jurors, leads to the conclu
sion that some method ought to be de
vised to do away with the system.
If, instead of keeping thirty to forty
jurors in attendance upon court during
the term, there could be selected by the
supreme court four intelligent business
men in each county to sit in tbe trial
of all cases with tbe presiding judge,
and with the judge to pass upon all
questions of fact, leaving questions of
law with the judge, as at present, there
would be far less expense, fewer ver
dicts set aside, fewer mistrials, and
more juBt verdicts. These four men
should be paid a liberal salary, should
serve four or six yeare, and should be
disqualified to sit in the trial of cases
only under the same circumstances as
would disqualify a judge under the pres
ent law. In tbe trial of cases tbe five
triers could, if they desired, take such
memorandum as tbey deemed necessary,
or have a stenographer make a record of
. the testimony, and as soon as the trial
of one case was concluded, take up an
other immediately. At the close ot a
day's sesbion they could retire, prepare
tbeir verdicts in the cases submitted to
them during the day, and at the opening
of tbe next session render them in open
court. In case of a misunderstanding
or forgetting of the testimony on any
particular qnestion, the 'memorandum
taken by the triers, or tbe notes of the
stenographer, could be referred to. A
more careful consideration of the testi
mony and of tbe law could be given tbe
case, and we believe that in the long
rua there would be comparatively few
unjust veraicts. ine lime required in
tbe trial of cases would be greatly re
uuced, tne expense to the county or cir
cuit courts would be decreased one-balf,
or more, cases would be more carefully
and fairly tried, and the delay in the
administration of justice would be re
duced to a minimum. We believe that
appeals, under the system suggested,
would be less frequent and the work of
the supreme court greatly reduced.
The scheme we suggest is crude; but
with study and thought in preparing
the details, we believe it could be made
a most desirable and beneficial substi
tute for the present system. Of course
any such plan would bo possible only
after remodeling our constitution.

THE JjVUKAXT TRIAL.
The press throughout the country is
-criticising the superior court of San
Francisco, in which Durrant is being
tried, because of the time consumed in
finding competent jurors. The press of
San Francisco has diligently striven,
ever since the discovery of the terrible
crime for which Durrant ia being tried,
to prejudice the people of the country
against Durrant, and ui.Ct its readers to
serve as jurors; and now because it has
succeeded, it abuses the court for its in
ability to find men who are not preju
diced. The trial is a travesty on justice,
but the fault lies with the sensational
newspapers of San Francisco ; they have
done their utmost to pievent a fair trial,
and because of tbeir efforts it will be
extremely difficult to secure a fair trial.
The papers should be the last to com
plain at tbe delay in finding a jury.
