Trial by Jnry.
The right of trial by jury i- fur from hav?
ing the sanctity of age which manj imagine
it. to posstS3. Nor does the bisioi ui its in
corporation into the law of E: d show it
to have been always so wholly in in? inter?
est of liberty and juatico us is supposed. It
was bnl a I rief time ago, ompared with
the date of novae of tho rights which the
people wrested from the Crown, that men
began to claim tight to be fried, when ac?
cused of crime, by juries of their peers. We
have no space to recite the history. It is
full of interest, and ought ;<? be studied
nun? than it i.j by lawyers and laymen
When juries in England were selected by
:!:?? Crown, without any intervention from
the accused, the Crown expected the jury to
condemn. It was selected for that purpose.
When, as in some rare instances, the jury
brought in a verdict of not guilty, heavy
punishment was inflicted on tho jurors.
I They wero lined and imprisoned, and nil
men wero thus warned that when chosen as
jurors in a criminal case they were expected
to iind sitch verdict as tho prosecuting coun?
sel directed them to find.
While, within two or three centuries, the
right of jury trial has grown to be one of
the great defenses of the subject against
tyranny of a government, like ninny other
excellent institutions it has been greatly
abused, and its abuses demand reform, [n
extending the right to cases of dispute be
tween man and man relating to property and
injuries of the person, a heavy load of labor
and expense has been imposed on the peo?
ple, far heavier than the resulting good justi?
fies. It is absurd in the extreme to call
twelve citizens from their employments and
compel them to give a day, or several days,
to finding tho facts in a case in which John
Smith asks damages from Thomas Jones for
assault and battery in a quarrel. It is
equally absurd to summon twelve other citi?
zens to try a case in which one man claims
a hundred dollars from another for a groce?
ry bill, or on a note, or for rent. Nor does
the right to call these citizens exist at all to
the extent which most persons suppose it
does. Cur statute already provides that
wherever a suit requires tho examination
of a long account tho Court may send it to
a refereo for trial. In various classes of
cases the questions of fact as well as of law
are tried by a single judge. In tho United
States courts admiralty cases, collisions of
ships and other cases are tried by the dis?
trict judge. Tho vague idea of most people
that they have always the right to summon
twelve of their fellow-citizens to investigate
and decide their disputes with their fellows
is an error.
There would be, therefore, no shock to an
ancient and established right if the present
system of jury trials wero reformed by the
total abolition of jury trials in a largo num?
ber of cases. The euormous burden now
imposed on the community might and
should be largely diminished. Not a fourth,
hardly a tenth, of tho present jury work
done by citizens is necessary to the ends of
The traditional twelve as the number of a
jury might readily be abandoned. Five or
ihn e men are quite as likely to reach the
truth in a disputed case as twelve, [f jury
trials went back to barbaric times, it might
well be said ibat, a relic of barbarism is vis?
ible in tbe law which requires tho twelve
j men to agree before a verdict can be record?
ed. If it is not possible to refuruj ibis ab
J surdity in criminal cases, the good sense of
j our age ought to reform it in civil cases.
I When o mangoes to law, and asks his gov
j ernment to summon twelve impartial intel?
ligent citizens to try a cause between him
and another man, he ought to be satisfied
' with the Unding of a mi>j ?ritvoftbe twelve.
??or is there reason or justice in tbe pros
l eni poor pnjmcnt ?i jiii> The doing vi
! jury duty is a contribution of tue ci?zeu u>
' the public good, but i1 is .??? ^normoue con
I tributiou, and unequal!} rxacted. T':e ex
! t-tupts are morn uuiuenti> that the juror-,
j The litigants ate few i.i comparison with
! tho vast number of citizens who neivr go to
law. In criminal cases it may tie argued
? that every citizen cugh! to do jury duty us
la public setvice for community interests.
There no such.argument in fai i of exact

putes between individuals xl.uui money
i claims, unless ample payugiveu tbem fur

j services ol his fellow men to try a cause tor
iiii'.. -Minid ;,ay them. It would be a very
simple reform to require litigants who want
! jurv trials to pay $10 a day to each jurur,
or have theil cases tried by the court or u
j special board of triers. Such a board of
I officers, attached to every court for the trial
of questions of fact, might be an excellent
I substitute for a jury in a great number of
j cases, while in others the one judge would
I suffice for questions of iaw and fact,
j The subject is a broad one, and we may
I recur to it at another time. There are so
; many wrougs connected with the system
j now in use that the intelligent community
I is certainly prepared for a great, even a
radical change. Certainly it is a wrong,
araouuliDg to an outrage on private rights,
to -ummon a. citizen to attend court as a ju?
ror, draw his name and place him in tho jury
box, keep him there several days, and then,
on a peremptory challenge, tell him he is
; not wanted. It is a great wrong, and courts
j and judges deserve sharp censure for not
stopping it, to summon hundreds of citizens,
