Loiidon, Nov. 11.?"A vietim of iegil buugling," or, vrorse still, "a le <;al sacrilice," is tbe epitaph tliat might properly be ptaoad on tbo lomb of Dr. II. II. Crippen, wben be is b-Bged Ofl November _?'! tor the murder of bis .vife, Belle Klmore, ia tlie opinion of the big majority of English htwycrs. Nearly every one who followed the famous murder caso ia convinced today tbat somewhere along tbe line of tbe lefense a great soandal \r concealed. l'eople everywhere. are ask ing: "Was Crippen sacriticed tbat Etbel Claro Le? neve migbt go free*" Crippen waa brougbt to Eugiand from Canada; eminetit English lawyer* who will bet on anything; were willing to wager 5 to 1 that he would be ne quitted. Crippen was found guilty in less than half an hour. It is hard to Hnd a parallel for such a startling re versal and tbere was no developmenl during the trial, according to leg.il c\ perLs, that adequately explains it. Solicitor Newton ie?t Barrister Tobin into court witb a case but half prepared and the latter had but half mastered even tbe slovenly case prescnted to bim Wben tbe trial opened. Wben Ihe trial of Miss Leneve, Crippen'a tvpiat, was called imimd iately following tbe conviction of Crip? pen, Nowtoti, still i.i charge. employed F. E Smith, ono of the ablest practi tioncrs at the English bar. Smith got Miss Leneve off witb scarcely an effort. Wbat Ibe public wants t<? know is why Newton engaged an untried bai lister tor Crippen, charged witb inur .ler, and tbe best counsel that could be obtained for Miss Leneve, charged with tbo less serious offense of being an aoojaaory af'tr tbo fa t. Now ton prepared Miss Leawve. for Smith just as 1-e lni'l Crippen'a caae fur Tobin. And tbe fi'st thlng thal Smith did on the strength ofthe c:isr Newton furniabed blro waa to refer to Crippen, in the plaineat of terms, aa a "murderer beyond tbetbadow of qaee lion." Making all due altowaneea for tbc fact tbat Newton probably thought be had done all be could tor Crippi n and might as well ailmit tiiat be was ;. murderer, if byaodoiog he could bene lit Miss Leneve, Britisb lawyeri say he aeted peculiarly. Dr. Crippen'a a| peal was still pending and it was bot certau: but his own solicitor might bo pre judioing bia case. When the court ofcriminal appeal sat lo decide on a date for hearing Crippen's appeal, Barrister Huntley Jenaina, Crippen. jnoior counsel, asked for all the time tlie bench could allow him to prepare his caae because bia tenior, Tobin, "had unexpectedly withdrawn from tbc case." The eottrl was Martled by this information. "Poi a barrister to withdraw from a murder case," said Justice Darling, who waa preeiding, 'after bis clienl bad been oonvicted and has an appeal atill pen I ing is most unuaal. I don't nndei atandit." And the very next day tbc Loudou Afteruooii Times announced tbat Tobin was not only going to arguc the Crippen anpeal but that he bad never withdrawn from the case nt all. Wbat all tbis tangle meant, no one bas yet been able to Icarn, but it is con aidered significaut iu oonneetion witb tbe other poculiar featurns of tba case. One tbing isclear there uas trouble of some sort among Crippen'a defenders and tliat it proved moat damagingto the unfortunate little doctor's interest. The Asbury Park Munlc-r. Asbury Park, N.

Va., issued a warrant for Themas MoCoy, alias Gardner, left end of tbe Bethauy College team. Mc Coy was to bave been arrested today. The warrant was issued btcaues of the sworu statemeut made lo Corooei Rogers by Homer N. Young, of I'itt-. burg, Pa., a former Miohigan Uni v? rsity piayer, who was tbeoflcial ref eree of the game. His statement is as followj; 'VRudolpb Munk was running down the field in advance of the man with tha ball, West Virginia having the ball about 30 yards from the Bethauy goal. He was not close to the ball. On this play be was met by a mau said to be Gardner, as hi* name was given to me by Townsend, thecoacbforlhe Betbany te-<BJ. On this particular play this man Gardner ran towards Munk whil* both were running down the field. About tlie time they got 10 yards be? yond tbe scriuimage line, Gardner, to the best of my recoIlectioB struek Munk en the back ol his head with hi (Gardner'a) nst. Munk fell and Gardner i ractically fell over him. UtirJuer got on bia feet, for an in tuit, eazed at Munk and started to walk off the field. For this foul I put bim out of the game. He made no reply and no protest whatever. Munk was un couscious. Evidently to me the blow wbich felled Munk was inteutional." DI/TTOM VrEARERH TO BB TUR\ El> DOWN.
