Likelihood Thnt tho District, Lawyers
Will Join In a Movement to IJuvo Its
Defects Kcmodlcd nt tho Next .Session
"Hero is a pointer for you," said a piomi
ncnt member of tho bar to a Sunuav JIeuam)
reporter. "For some years pa6t the matter
has been discussed among tho members of tho
bar, and 1 think it will take shape when Con
gress reassembles. 1 refer to the inadequacy
of our jury system in promoting tho ends oC
justice. I do not suppose that wo aro worse
off hero than in other parts of tho country in
this relation, but Ex-Attomcy-Gencral Brew
ster had a good deal of standing ground when
he made his sweeping declaration, that tho
jury system was a farce in this District after
he had been beaten in the Star Koute trials.
For example, tho jury list, or box with eligi
ble names, is made up by a committco of gen
tlemen appointed by tho court, and they aro
alwaj's estimable citizens, but their method is
to put into the jury box the names of every
one they can think of and when memory does
not servo them they fail back upon the city
directory. Anybody, white or black, a citizen
who bas never been convicted of an infamous
crime, is considered a competent juror. At
least one-half of the solid business men drawn
on tho jurle6,wb.osescrvIco would bo beneficial
to the public, mauago to get excused on al
leged pressure of engagements, and so on, aud
their places are filled with talesmen picked up
on tho streets at random or from tho profes
sional hangers-on of the City Hall.
"It is not worthwhile mailing an argument
against the defects existing. "Every' lawyer
here knows it. And that police court jury
trial business is the worst of all. It is a roar
ing farce. Talk about our Anglo-Saxon an
cestors, 'the body of the hundred,' 'the jury
system,'thc Palladium of our liberty,' and such
rot, why, any man who simply wanted just
ice would prefer to have his case settled by
tho judge on tho bench, who is presumed to"
be honest and learned in the law, in prefer
ence to having it ' jugcled with by tho igno
ramuses of the average jury.
"Now out in Maryland, for Instance, either
In a criminal or civil action, the defendant
may elect whether his case shall be tried be
fore the judge or before a jury. That's what
the Bar Association will seek to have estab
lished in tho District. And while this might
interfere with tho practice and emoluments of
the silver-tongued orators and alleged jury
flxers, the cause of justice in this tialli'wlck
would certainly bo enhanced. A bill has al
ready been carefully prepared embodying a
change in our methods of trials, and I have
no doubt that it will receive the united sup
port of the District legal fraternity.
THE NEW BATHING BEACH.
Work on It "Will Be Pushed ns Rapidly
Mr. W. R. Stevens, who has charge of the
free bathing beach authorized by Congress at
the foot of the Washington Monument grounds,
said to a Herald reporter: "The contract was
given out on Wednesday to Mr. P. Frawley to
grade the ground for tho bathing beach im
mediately. As soon as he gets a portion of it
graded another contractor will begin to place
the sand upon it, and at the same time some
other contractor will bo at work constructing
the houses. Arrangements have already been
made for driving the piles to construct two sub
stantial wharves, 60 that the whole matter may
now be said to be in rapid progress. The
work will be begun before you go to press,
and we Intend to have the baths readv for use
before the end of Juue.
"There will be no restriction placed upou
bathing, except that every one Is expected to
provide a decent bathing suit. As far as tho
segregation of the sexes is concerned, each
house will have a centre division with sixtepn
roomsou each side, each provided with lock
and key. As far as bathing is concerned, the
waters will be freo to males and females to
bathe together, just as at any watering-place.
Any improper conduct will subject the party
to immediate arrest. Wo will avoid any dis
play of the color line by devoting two houses
at one end of the beach to the whites and two
at the other end to tho colored people, 800
feet apart, and they will not be permitted to
mingle while in the water. This matter is
looked forward to with a great deal of hope,
where all Washluctonians who enjoy tho
water, without expense and no requirement ex
cept good behavior, can be In the way of enjoy
ing the privileges of the beach."
The Patent-Leathor Shoe.
It is only within tho last year or so that the
patent-leather shoe has been used to any great
extent for every-day wear. But it has grown
mlehtlly In popular favor, and is to-day con
sidered by well-dressed people as almost in
dispensable. Aside from tho neat, finished
appearance which it lends to tho well-dressed
person, they aro very durable, and arc made
in a great variety of styles. Thero Is no doubt
that they will bo "tho shoo" for the coming
season, and in anticipation of tho great de
mand Messrs. Wilson & Carr, of 920 F street
northwest, have prepared for your Inspection
tho handsomest aud most varied assortment
in this lino of footwear ever shown in Wash
ington. Tho patent-leather shoo is somewhat
risky at best, but Its wearing qualities depend
in a great measure upon tho caro taken of
them. Messrs. Wilson & Carr feel safe in as
serting that their grade of $5 patent-leather
shoes Is not surpassed anywhere for the price,
and the $7.50 and 10 grades can be relied
upon as being the best obtainable. Special
attention is called to theso patent-leather
goods, but they are prepared to show you a
complete stock in other lines of footwear, and
would be glad to have the opportunity of do
