New York, April 6. Judge Swann in his charge to the April Grand Jurors in General Sessions yesterday express ed his opinion of automobile speeding, which he called- "a. new method of committing old crhnes." He said: "Within the last month many crimes have been committed by men possess ed of the speed mania. They run down women and children on our streets. Women andl children and the infirm and aged are entitled to the use of the streets as much as the strong. No man has an exclusive right to the streets. EJven. the man who devotes his time to speeding this modern en gine has no more right to the public street than the weak and infirm. "Men who do these acts recklessly and without regard! to the rights of others, and who either malm or kill, are guilty of either manslaughter or other grades of crime, and it seems to me that it would be a proper and fit ting thing that, if such a case comes before you, you should not hesitate to indict if the evidence warrants R; and that you should not hesitate to indict for the crime of manslaughter if you think that that crime has 'been com mitted. "It is further provided by section 29 of the penal laws that a man who aids and abets in the commission of crime is equally guilty with the man who commits the crime. The owner of an automobile will sometimes take delib erately a chauffeur who has been known, to be reckless in his driving. The minute that the owner of the au tomobile puts such a chauffeur upon his machine in the public streets the law presumes that the owner knows the ordinary act that the chauffeur is going- to commit. A man is presumed to intend the ordinary and usual re sults of his own acts, and the owner who puts a reckless chauffeur in an automobile and' sends him through the streets could be properly found by you to be equally guilty with the chauffeur of the crime, whatever it may be, that may reasonably be expected to be com mitted by that chauffeur." IS "AWFDLLY TIRED" Representative Clark of Florida Tired of Following Mr. Bryan. Washington, April 6. In the House yesterday, Mr. Clark (Derru, Fla.,) said : "We do not intend, so far as I am concerned and the people I represent, to follow your Nebraskan Populist ic leader any more. I think the South ern Democracy never made a greater mistake in its life than when it turned its back on its Democratic friends in the Bast, whom it has driven from the party, and tied up with Populism out In Nebraska. I am just a plain, old fashioned Democrat, and when you all get back there you will be better off. I have followed him (Bryan) three times, and I am awfully tired."
