Marshall § U9]Walnut Street 'Phone 243 <2 I.o-.y trials always have in them arm'.. repetition and rubbish that mods to be sifted and separated so that the chaff will not appear wheat. The time usually occupied in this Is considerable, all of which Is saved if the trial Judge throughout the trie! will do his duty fairly and fearlessly. The day of the sob speech is passed. The simple, homely Illustration is quite es effective as It ever waB, but fe?rs or the spread-eagle method of •Id has taken Its departure. Counsel can very much aid the jury in marshalling the facts like a general 'n an army, with a view of showing what is proven and what is not proven under the rules of law, pointing out the legal effect and the logical force of each fact separately and collective ly. Counsel not only gain great ad vantage In thus appealing to the Jury’s reason and Judgment, but provide the jurors with the necessary arguments with which to make an effective appeal to their fellow Jurors In the Jury room when deliberating. By this method there is little likeli hood that the Jury will he diverted rom the real points in controversy; jad it is, therefore, more likely that the verdict will respond to the facts proven. It Is rare indeed that any counsel can assist and instruct the jury to advantage for more than half an hour to an hour. I remember an occasion when one if the old-fashioned McSweeney peeches was made to the jury In the . rial of a hotly contested case where in indulgent trial court granted coun sel, as I now recall, two hours a side n a petty larceny case. The defend* nl’s counsel made one of those rip caring, thunderbolt speeches in which mo roundly abused everyone connected with the prosecution. Counsel for the state absolutely answered that whole argument of noise and abuse in the ■following simple words: "Gentlemen of the jury, among our intelligent American people the time has not yet come when abuse is argu ment; ridicule, reason; or sound, either substance or sense.” The counsel pro ceeded then to address himself to the facts. The jury have more intelligence than they are usually credited with, rhat intelligence should be respected oy counsel in their arguments. My 'Experience in talks with Jurors abso lutely confirms my judgment in this respect. If the average trial judge has one fault more common than another, it is m the long technical charges that he delivers to the jury. They are often mere treatises on the law entirely suitable and interesting to a Harvard lev. school, but not to a jury of farm ers. business men and laborers. s there are few' substantial differ ences as to fact, so there are also but tew propositions of law actually in volved. Let these be put clearly and concretely to fit the case on trial. The jury will better understand it, and, therefore, be the better able to apply it when they get in their juryroom. The equities of tlie case will therebjP be given the paramount place they de serve, and the economies of the case will likewise not suffer; for the aver the trial Indern la ahniit three times as long as there is any need. " The paramount importance of the trial judge in dispatching the business of the court must clearly appear from uiese several articles. If there be un .•’.ccsissary delay, he is responsible for :t. If there be unduly prolonged and detailed cross-examination upon Im material matter the trial judge Is re on sible. If there he numerous engthy arguments upon petty, trivial m- technical objections, the trial judge :: sponsible. If there be unneces • time consumed by lengthy argu ments upon matters concerning which there is no room for doubt, the trial fudge is responsible. If there be a pro longed tieatise upon the law, In sclen :i :c phrase or technical terms* away av :vc the jury’s ability to understand, ;cu using them while the charge i3 given and still more when they into the jury room, the trial judge z responsible.
