Englith Jurors' Remuneration.
The scale of remuneration of English
common jurymen Is absurd. In a civl;
case In England a common Juryman In
allowed 5 shillings ($1.25) a day for "r
view" that is. for inspecting any prop
erty or thing in dispute but otherwise
he Is, In law, not entitled to any re
muneration. It Is usual, however. In
the high court to give him a fee of 1
shilling and In the counties 8 pence.
Special Jurymen receive much higher
remuneration. The fee In the county
court Is 1 shilling a rase. In the may
or's court 2 pence and In the London
sheriff's court 4 pence. Chambers'
