WOMAN BRANDED MURDERESS
WHOM ALL KNEW INNOCENT
BUT LAW REQUIRED THAT JURY
BRING IN VERDICT OF GUIL
TY AND THAT JUDGE
London, Nov. 11. By a singular
coincident e, simultaneously with tho
publication here of the tabled report
of Joseph Choatc's speech at the Lotus
Club, New York, wherein ho expressed
the opinion that British law was supe
rior to the home-mado article and bet
ter administered, we hnve been treat
ed to a striking demonstration of Its
astnlno qualities. With black cap on
head, a British Judge lias solemnly
pronounced sentence of death on an
old woman fof the murder ot her bus
bind, whom slio did not murder, and
to complete tho farcical tragedy u Brit
ish chaplain has solemnly lnokcd tho
mercy of God on ber "guilty soul,"
which was not guilty. And all this
with full knowlcdgo that she did not
commit the crime, for which sho was
convicted nnd that she will never be
hanged for It.
In a condemned cell, tho aged victim
of legal cruelty, whoso sad plight has
o olied expressions of deepest sympa
thy from all classes, Is awaiting the
exercise of tho crown's prerogative of
mercy. After a brief period of Im
prisonment she will probably bo re
leased to eke out what tcmalns of her
wretched existence branded ns a mur
deress. Judge and Jury are agreed that
sho should never have been convicted.
But they had no other recourse than
to conform to nn antiquated law.
Mrs. Marian Rcddon's story Is one ot
tho most pitiful that has ever been
told In tho grim Old Bailey Court. Sho
was C5 years old and her husband was
78. They had been married twelvo
years. After their marriago they start
ed a confectionery shop nt Staliies. For
a time they were fairly successful.
Then trndo fell off and they moved
to a shop In Mortlake. There things
went from bad to worse. The hus
band's health failed. When quarter
day came round they hod not money
inough to pay tho rent Death or the
workhouse seemed to bo tlio only al
ternative open to them and they chose
death, but tl)e husband nlone found It.
"We decided," said Mrs. Seddon nt
the Inquest on htx body, "that e had
better both leave this world together.'
After' passing n sleepless night worry
ing over their lot black despair grip
"I can't stand this any longer," she
said to ber husband. Rising from the
bed shn went to a cupboard and took
from it a bottlo containing a liniment
composed of belladonna and aconite,
thlth had been urcd to relievo her Inu
la mi's pain. It waj macl.ed "poison."
Sho drank halt Its contents. Then she
said to her husband: "Thcro Is noth
ing for us but this or the workhousa
Are you gains to take your share?"
"Yes," replied the man. and snatch
ing tho bottle from his wlU's hands ho
drained what remained of. the poison
Mrs. Seddon then sought her sister-in-law,
who lived In the samo house,
told her what they had done, and be
bought her, to seo to It that they wero
saved, tho Ignominy ot pauper burial.
Then, sho returned to tho Ixd and lay
dowu-by her Uiuband'a side U. die with
him. she thought But tho poison
workod slowly. As In duty bound, the
sister-in-law told the police what had
happened- The police removed the
couple to the workhouse which they
had so dreaded. Thcro the disutnrti did
their best to prevent them escaping
from ILby death, as In duty they were
bound to do. They saved Mrs. Sed
don's life,, but her husband succumbed.
There followed, ot course, a cor
oner's Inquest. Tho Jury brought In a
erdlct'of suicide whllo temporarily
Insane. Then, the police arrested Mrs.
Seddna and charged her wltli the mur
der ot the man who, according to tho
coroner s Jury, had committed suicide.
Paradoxical ns It sounds, the. law Just!
fled that charge. For the law declares
that If two persous ronsplce to torn
nit sulcldo and ono survives that sur
vivor is guilty oi murner.
Tho eidence at tho trial made it
clear that It was not a rasa ot murder.
But the law was equally enrphattc that
It was murder, and the Judge told the
Jury that they would havo to stand by
the law. The Jury reluctantly brought
in a verdict ot guilty, adding a Btrong
recommendation of mercy. Tho Judge
reluctantly sentenced tho woman to
death. He said It was thn saddest case
bo had ever tried. Ills opinion of tho
law which compelled Jilin to impose a
sentence that was utterly abhorrent to
his notions ot right nud Justice ho
kept to btmsclf, for In a court ot Jus
tice the most stupid law must be treat
ed as something sacred.
"We did not want to And the
woman guilty," said ono of tho Jury,
men, after tho trial was over," but after
what the Judge told us we could not
do otherwise. Of course, we knew that
the woman would not be hanged, and
of course, tho Judge know It. too, when
he pronounced sentence ot death upon
