Petition Attacks Their Compe?
tency Because of Previous
Judyc Keith Then Saitl Trial
Judge Could Best Determine
In the petition Tor a writ of error In
the case of Henry C. Beanie, Jr.. now]
beforo the Supreme Court of Appeals,
one of the arguments 1? directed I
against the competency of certain
jurors, who stated prior to their ac?
ceptance as such that they had form-,
eil some sort of opinion as to the guilt!
or innocence of the accused. This Is
regarded by the attorneys for the de?
fense as one uf their strong points.
The argument in the petition runs
about in tills wise: "Here is a caso
founded entirely on circumstantial evi?
dent e. Venlremen present themselves
and icll the court Hint they have read!
the stories of the murder und the sub-j
Bequont events, and that ihey haVcl
made up their minds to some degree Inj
the matter. Having thus considered
?rind weighed those circumstances upon
which alone the Commonwealth can
rely, they arc not competent jurors. In
other words, the circumstantial evi?
dence has been already before thenu]
and has had its weight in the forma?
tion of a judgment beforo these men
readied the Jury box. Therefore the
JUSO should be reversed, and a new
trial granted.''
Manner of Selection.
W hile the selection of the Jury was
In progress. Judge Waller A. Watson
used gieai care In ascertaining the ex?
tent of the opinions formed by the
venlremen. When the person under
examination hud formed an opinion
based upon wlial he had heard or read,
liut said that his Judgment could be
changed by the presentation of evi?
dence, and thai he was Sure he eould
give the accused u fair if? he was
generally permitted to servo.
It is of Interest to note in this con?
nection that the same point was bofoi*!
the same court in the mosl famous
Virgff.tu ease of recent years?that of
J. Samuel McGue, of Charlottesville.
who was convicted and executed for
Ihe murder of his wife. In the argu?
ment for a wilt of error, it was al?
leged thai Juror stockdell was Incom?
petent, "having admitted on its voiri
dire liut I he had formed opinion on
newspaper evidence; that he could not'
sn> thai 'it could give the accused the
benefit of the presumption of evidence,
Hu- presumption having been destroy?
ed by whai he had read about the ease.
He made the unequivocal stutcment on
his volr dire, that he had not only
formed, but expressed, an opinion bas?
ed on the newspaper evidence; that
what he had read seemed to him right,
and that if these reports turned out to
be true, he would certainly take action
and a llrm stand."
Previous Decisions.
Authorities were quoted on this
point in part folio was - ?
"If reasonable doubt exists as to
impartiality 01 Jurors, it must be re?
solved In favor of accused."?DeJar
neite vs. Commonwealth.
"Venlremen who has formed and ex?
pressed opinion as to guilt or Inno?
cence of the accused, whether opinion
be formed on testimony he has heard,
conversation with witnesses or common
report. Is an incompetent juror."?Arm
istead's ease, 11 Leigh, 663.
"However -willing Juror who has
formell ami expressed an opinion may
be to trust himself, the law will not
trust him."?Wright's ease, 32 Gratt.,
"When, therefore," proceeded the
petition, "Stockdell said lie was afraid
he would not be able io give accused
b' Hi fit of the presumption of innocence.
It was equivalent to saying that he
would not decide case according to the
law and evidence."
Need Intelligent Jurors.
Delivering* the opinion of ihe court
in denying to McCue a writ of error,
Judge James Keith,, then, us now, the
court's president, said:
"The trend of recent decisions is In
the direction of limiting, rather than
extending, the disqualification of jurors
by reason of mere opinion. Whatever
the mind receives has an effect upon
it. passing with almost Inllnlte grada?
tion from a mere impression to a fixed
belief. The Stale strains ovory nerve
to disseminate knowledge. By the dif?
fusion of education It hopes to create
a higher citizenship and to find the
means of repressing vice and crime;
but if the courts take an extreme posi?
tion upon this subject, and hold that
every opinion shall work a disqualltl
catlon for service as a juror, the ad?
ministration of Justice will be contided,
not to the most Intelligent, but to the
most Ignorant of our citizens."
Judge Keith proceeded to draw a dis?
tinction between an opinion defined as
decided or substantial, or as merely
hypothetical. "The difficulty." he Bald,
quoting from Judge Moncure in 23
Gratt., "is in determining upon any
given ease whether the opinion be sub?
stantial or hypothetical." On this
point It is stuted In the syllabus that
"no rlxed and invariable rule can bo
laid down whereby to test the compe?
tency of Jurors, but each case should
be determined by its own facts or cir?
cumstances, and great weight should
be attached by an appellate court to
the opinion of the trial Judge." There?
fore, he concludes, "we have no hesita?
tion .In rejecting this assignment of

nance and administration, will bo
brought together at Richmond.
In tho Held of road construction in?
tricate problems have arisen to puzzio
farmers as well as automubillats,
especially with regard to the adapta?
tion of construction to meet the de?
structive effects of modern iraflle,
Ol rector Lufun Waller Page, of tho
United .State uitlce of Public Roads,
has inudo various experiments, which
have shown the best types of road for
the various kinds of traffic, but the |
results of these experiments urc not I

Interested in the road building and
maintenance problem, and practically ;
every State will be represented either
by its Governor or some other high
official. Road otliclals of most all the j
States likewise will be present.
Road maintenance has been almost
entirely neglected in the United Stute?. 1
wltii the result that deterioration of
the best constructed roads represents
a preventable loss aggregating mil?
lions ol dollars annually.
Want I ulforni Legislation. ?
Just now there Ih a tendency to?

adoption of continuous und systema?
tic maintenance, and the great road
congress at Richmond Is expected to
co-ordlnutc this part of the road
movement and help to bring about
belter maintenance of roads through?
out the country.
It Is also expected that efforts will
be made to develop more uniformity ;
in legislation passed by the various ,
Slate legislatures and to show the ad?
vantages of bond Issues for road build- ]
trig and maintenance.

Includes a "National Day," at which i
