"FATTY". TRIAL A SAMPLE
Splits Said to Occur Along One
Line--Husbands of Women
Protest.
NEW YORK, March 26-Many
Months ago, when the acquisition
of "women's rights" spelled the
general inauguration of juries com
posed of bot akes those *ho no
posed the feminist movement
warned that mixed juries would
rone fatal to justice, particularly
criminal cases.
Conirversy Arises.
The growing froquency of late of
"hung," or deadlocked, juries has
given these opponents the exultant
opportunity for recording their "I
teld you so's." A sharp controvarsy
has already arisen over the merits
and demerit. of the mixed jury sys
tem, and not a few declare they are
now convinced that the system is a
failure and never should have been
established. On the other hand, pro
ponents of the system demand more
time in which to test it before pass
ing final judgment.
One of the most conspicuous cases
In which women were on juries that
Could not reach a verdict is that of
Roscoe ("Fatty") Arbuckle, the noted
screen comedian, accused in San
Francisco of manslaughter in the
death of his party guest, Miss Vir
ginia Rappe, motion picture actress.
Arbuckle's Third Jury.
Arbuckle's third trial Is now under
way. In this jury there are five
women. In both previous trials
long deliberation could not effect a
Verdict. Five women were in the
first doen of his supposed judges
and one of them. Mrs. Helen Hub
bgrd, stood out for conviction and
made Impossible the verdict of ac
aulttal that her eleven colleagues
were determined on returning. In
the second trial there were several
women on the jury, but the dead
lock could not be ascribed to them,
as the men jurors were also split.
If In Arbuckle's third trial another
disagreement Is reported it may be
a strong howl of dismay will be ut
tered by those who oppose women
as tenants of the jury box.
N. Ieuasdy Verdict.

Burch, accused of shooting him, goes

hours of deligeration, resulted :n a
hopeless deadlock. Women were
sanong the jurors, opponents of the
mined system remind the public. It
is likely that for his second trial r
women will be chosen from among
the candidates for the jury. Is there
any doubt that the controversy will
be embittered in the event this E
group, too, reports a deadlock?
remly related to this trial is the d

se of Kentucky, who is ac
eused of instigating Burch to shoot s
him and of accompanying Burch to I
the murder scene and lighting for t
him the path of the death-dealing U
bueL t
Her first trial, consuming many 11
days of testimony and many hours I
of jury deliberations, also developed 0
a disagreement, necessitating a sec.
ond trial that will commence short- o
ly. In her case, too, women were c
on the first jury and will be In the w
panel from which the second jury ti
will be selected. d
Two Instances in the last several P
days have served to emphasise this
problem and make it an Issue among ir
those who debate the whole matter al
of mixed juries. One wan In St. lH
Paul, Minn., and the other in Tren
ton. N. J. Both attracted a coun- pi
try-wIde Interest and debate on the w
question raised by the locking up cl
ef these juries was widespread and
Intense, in some cases quite bitter. P
The It. Paul came was the more in
spectacular because of the sensa
tional action taken by husbands of
the 'women jurors. In this case. mn
which a man was accumed of auto- P,
mobile stealing, a verdict of guilty at
was eventually reached. But it took
two whole days and nights of delib- N
eration to attain a decision, and dur
ing the two nights the men and h(
women jurors were locked up to- ni
gether, to the Intense indignation re
of the hudaands, who filed formal sh
and vehement protest with Governor jlu
Preus.
This jury Included seven women. lu
Five of them were married. Two of til
them were single. of
One of the single members of the n<
seven, Miss Grace Williams. had this In
to sy of her experience on the two ti
nights; in
"We argued until late. Finally, be
a man yawned and said something fu
about going to bied. It was very fo
embarrassing. We had to put out
the lights and get ready for bed dii
in the dark. it wan very incon- cc
venient, but we did It. The next
night we had a thin curtain In be- is
tween the men and women and we th
were less inconvenienced. The men to
were very courteous.' to
Despite this final testimony as to tu
th utemanliness of the five male he
mm of the jury, the husbands dr
of the 'married women raised a ur
bewl that has not yet subsided.
Of course, the fact that eventual- m<
ly thim jury was able to t-each a aun
verdict is used by sponsors of the tik
mixed system as evidence that it is ME
to reach 'an dgreement in a legal oip
tinagpesible for the two sexes i

In Trenton, the outcome of th WI
trial in which a man was charged to
with assaulting a girl wan differ

too, the jurors were locked up to- mi

to reach a verdict. As in the St. pe

Mother of Four Pleased.
Mrs. Mae Reading. mother of four
:hildren, the oldest of whom is six
sen, was pleased with her experi
ince as a juror in the case. She
'emarked that "none if the mien
rven took off his coat or shoes. I
ook particular notice to that fact."
Mrs. Nettie Robertson said:
"None of the women slept a wink.
'he men didn't sleep, either. Some
f the women wouldn't let them
leep. When we saw that they were
bout to fall asleep we rubbed their
aces with a fur. That kept them

"Some of us played cards for a
ttle while. As a general thing.
owever, the men grouped together
nd the women grouped together."
All of the six women were mar
led. one of them a widow. and all
f them have children except the
ridow, Mrs. Julie Baird.
Mrs. Reading had the unique ex
erlence of quitting the jury work
londay and being called to similar
uty two days later. Of this situ
tion, she said:
"I have a trustworthy maid arid
he took care of the children while
was on the jury. My husband

Mrs. Reading was indignant when
formed some jurors had said they

"We played cards, read the niews

FORBIDDEN NOVEL
FOUND IN LIBRARY
James Brauch Cabell's "Jur
gen" Accidentally Put in
Circulation at College.
('HAM PAIGN, Ill.. March 25 -Two
illustrated copies of "Jurgen.' James
Branch Cabell's novel, which was
barred from the malls shortly after
its publication in 1917, have caused
considerable excitement recently
among co-eds at the University of I
Illinois. The two volume. were ac- I
eldentally put Into circulation at the1
university library.
One~ copy ot the book is missing
and the uzniversity authorIties have
instituted a searceh among the stn-t
dents which so tar has been fruit- I
less. The other was recovered.
The two books had been ordered
from England by Prof. Stuart Pratt
bherman, head of, the English do- r
partment and auth~or of "An Intro- I
duction to English Literature," who
has characterized "Jurgen" as a "dullC
and stupid novel."
The novel wan forced out of print I
in this country because of the nature I
of its contents and it Is not permit- I
ted to be sold or dIstributed through I
the mails.
When the copies of "Jurgen" ar- I
rived with a larger consignment of 4
books from England they accidental- 11
ly became separated from Prof. Sher.-r
mian's list and were stamped with
the unIversity seal and placed on the lI
shelves In the English reading room. r'
Two days passed before wor- I
h* aked out to the head of the Eng-t
fish department that "Jurgen" was t
the talk of the campus and could be I

on why he had wished two copies I

IN SMALL CASE
Missing Man Exhibited Cold
Watch Found Under Pillow
Soon After He Disappeared.
MONTREAL, March 25.-Al
though more than two years have
elapsed since Ambrose Small, mil
lionaire theater owner, vanished
from human ken public interest in
the case has never dropped, and
the events of the last two weel:s
have aroused expeptions that
some big development is due.
People have never been convinced
that the police told all they knew
or suspected. and all along there has
existed an uneasy feeling that some
overshadowing influence has been
at work to hush the matter up.
Less than thi-ee weeks ago a
Toronto caretaker informed the po
lice that he had witnessed the burial
at dead of night in the city's dump
of a body which might be that of
Small. Immediately thereafter the
Misses Small, sisters of the missing
millionaire, engaged a clairvoyant
to search for him in the spirit
world, and now a Toronto barber
has come forward, with what the
detective in charge of the case de
clares is the most important clue of
all-the declaration that on the
afternoon of his disappearance
Small exhibited in the barber shop
the gold watch which was afterward
found under his pilow in his home.
Questions for Solution.
Did Ambrose Small visit his home
before he disappeared? If so. why
did he secrete his watch beneath
his pillow? Did he do so. or did
some one privy to his disappearance
hide It for him to form a fictitious
clue which should put the detec. t
tives on the wrong scent? C
These are some of the specula
aroused by the statement of the
barber, Arthur Weatherup, now of I
the little town of Stayner, but two f
years ago Small's favorite harber in
a shop at 3 Adelaide street east. I
Weatherup. the barber, has suc- n
cessfully withstood a cross-examina- I
tion of several hours, during which 0
the police sought vainly to shake I
his testimony that he shaved Am- ti
brose Small on December 2, 1919, 9
in the afternoon and finished with
him to let him keep an appointment i1
it 2 o'clock with his banker: and it
that Small pulled out the watch a
which he said had been given him 8
by his wife In order to show how a
little time there was to do the job. V
For some reason the police seemed 1t
anxious to disprove the statement r
)f the barber, and endeavored to b
ince hin to sign -a statement
that it was on December I and not el
December 2 he shaved Smail. This , ft
lie refused to do.
Mrs. Small emphatically denied a
ill Weatherby's assertions. ti
Tom Flynn, a lifelong friend of cl
imall: his confidant and adviser, n
and the firat man to inform the '
police of his disappearance, de
:lared he believed Weatherby'S'
itatement to be correct, except for
)ne point, and believes Mrs. Small
o be mistaken in insisting. as did
he police, that it was on )ec-nber
I. not December 2, that Weatherby
ihaved Small.
Backed I p Statement.
Weatherup was interviewed hp
:lally as to what took place after
Detective Mitchell, in charge of the
ase, interrogated him. He stated
hat Detective Mitchell was unable I
o shake his story. Indeed the bar- I
er gave the detective a vigorous
argument, and backed up in I-tail,
he statements he made in his affi
lavit.
Weatherup gave one reason he
onsidered most convincing. Detec
ive Mitchell tried to tell him that
he $2,000,000 theater deal was put
hrough on December 1. Weatherup
'ecalled, however, that on December
Mr. Small had told him that if )
he big theater transaction went
hrough by the first of the year he I
rould give him a second case of s
:ertain whiskey, Hie had alretady
riven him one case. Small never
'eturned and Weatherup conI)tinu ed
o hope against hope' that the whis- I
iey' might be forthcoming.
"You know," he said, "a promise u
if a case of whiskey would mak-e
considerable impressIon on a
nan's mind. I did not want to for-, t
ret it. I wanted the whiskey.".

handed Mr. Small the check for a
million and said, 'What are you go
ing to do with it?' and he said, 'I
am going to give to Mrs. Small.'
Then he turned around and handed
the check to me in the presence of
four lawyers. I kept the check in
my possession until Tuesday after
noon. when we went to the bank.
So there is something wrong with
Mr. Weatherup's statement about
Mr. Small having the money on him
Tuesday in the barber shop, as
stated in the affidavit. Mr. Small
was a man to talk about his pri
vate interests. Then, about not be

home from Montreal Saturday night
at 9. 1 met him at the station. He
would hardly be doing business in
Montreal without being shaved, and
then he was home on Sunday, and
attended the conference on Monday.
No one can imagine a man settling
a deal as big as that, would meet his
lawyers without being shaved.

of England, who have already taken
steps to secure support for the!
movement from the leading church
men of America.
Rt. Rev. William Temple, bishop
of Manchester, is one of the leaders
in the movement for a conference
to be held in 1924. with a prelimi
nary conference in 1922 in Great
Britain and the United States.
In Search of Principles.
"The conference springs from two
convictions." Bishop Temple de
clared, in explaining the movement.
"The first is that civilisation is
really in need to discover its own
fundamental moral principles. Toa
great extent the methods that have
brought us so far seem unable to
carry us any farther or to main.
tain the progress that has been won
by them.
"For example, to some extent at
least, industry in the past depended
on the stimulus of fear. The
worker has protected himself
against this fear in a very large
measure. Therefore,, that stimulus
is now inoperative. Either we must
find another or discover some meth
od of reviving the old one. But
when we come to that choice the
other conviction comes into play.
namely, that fundamental Christian
belief, quite apart fr.nim any of the
questions on which the . hristlan
bodies are divided, 'an supply a
clue to the solution of all the prob
lems of politics, economics and cit
izenship.
Asks for Guidance.
"There is no intention to fotn a
specific Christian political party.
Nothing could be farther from the
minds of those inaugurating the
conference.
"We are looking for the will of
God. We believe that if people of
varied experienc and common faith
will come together, not to convigse
each other. but chiefly to Icarn
from each other. and with the de
sire and expectation that God will
guide their thoughts, we est
the end gneuinely know at
deal amoe of HI wIla wxeh e -
other way of saying the truth about
the world. than is now known to
an' group or individuals.
"We do not expect to be g=aided
to the -formation of an' ideal state.
We do hope and expe t to receive
guidance which will direct the nest
steps that have to be taken."
