ERRORS OF ENGLISH COURT
Cases of Mistaken Identity That Hav
Resulted in Great Hard
ships. Every year sees a number of innocect
men wrongly convicted, and while in
some cases proofs of these judicial er
rors come to hand after the victims hava
served but a few months imprisonment,
in many instances the mistakes are noc
found out until after those convicted
have served their fuil sentence.
The public rarely hears of these mis
takes of justice, says London Answers,
and yet in 1S97 III men and women wera
released and granted a free pardon after
having been wrongly imprisoned for
over four months. In none of thesa
cases was the victim granted any com
pensation, nor does the law entitle thent
to redress in any shape or form, whilo
not so much as a written or unwritten
apology is their lot.
In cases of mistaken identity, similar
to that of Adolph Beck, there are very
few precedents of compensatory bounty
having been granted, while those on
record do not show a dispensation or
very large sums. However, some 60
years ago a most flagrant instance of
miscarriage of justice occurred. A well
known solicitor named Barber was.
after a long trial, convicted of forgery
and was sentenced to transportation for
A considerable time elapsed before
proofs turned up which infallibly
proved that justice had erred. In this
case it was felt that there were moral
and intellectual claims for compensa
tion for suffering which had been
borne so long, so terribly and so un
deservedly on the shoulders of an inno
cent man. A long debate was held to
determine the exact sum of money
which could, in some measure at least,
make up for the personal agony which
the victim had undergone, and eventu
ally the house of commons ordered the
wronged man a bounty of 5,000.
Some three years ago a man from
New Zealand was brought to Colchester,
charged with having committed mur
der. Eventually, however, the case
against him was dismissed, and taking
into account the fearful strain which
the innocent man must have suffered,
the treasury granted him 600.
The largest sum which has ever been
granted in almost exactly similar con-,
ditions to those under which Adolph
Beck wrongfully suffered imprisonment
occurred exactly 28 years ago, when a
man named Habron was convicted of
murder at Manchester. Fortunately,
proofs of his innocence turned up, but
not until some time later. Never had
justice committed a greater mistake,
and although it was felt that it would
be impossible adequately to compensate
the victim-of this -extraordinary case of
mistaken identity, he was only granted
a sum of 1,000.
There are numerous cases of mistaken
identity in which the wrongfully con
victed man has not received one penny
of compensation. In 1895 a man named
Stewart was charged with being am
escaped convict. He firmly protested
that his name was Stickler, but the
evidence was so strong against him that
he was sent back to prison. Two years
elapsed before the police arrested a man
who was exactly like Stewart, and then
it was discovered that this man wasrtfcfe
erstwhile missing jailbird.
Stickler, of course, was immediately
released, but could claim no redress,
and his only consolation was that he
had not been compelled to serve the
The exact value of circumstantial
evidence is a much discussed question.
William Shaw, some years ago. was
hanged on circumstantial evidence for
the murder of his daughter. About a
year after his execution the tenant who
renterf-Shaw's house discovered a let
ter written by the supposed murdered
girl, in which she stated that as the
man she loved had jilted her, she had
made up her mind to commit suicide.
The authorities were, of course, unable
to expiate this terrible mistake; but the
dead man's body was handed over to his
relatives of reinterment, while flags
were waved over the grave, and prom
inent officials attended the funeral in
token that Shaw's innocence was rec
ognized. Curious English Trade Custom.
The burning of the Dunlop-Welch
tyre specifications at the banquet in
commemoration of the expiration of the
patents recalls another curious trade
custom. In some parts of the country,
when a public house loses its license
the signboard is solemnly buried. On
the last night it is removed from over
the door and "waked" in the bar .by
the old customers. When the clock
points to closing time and the house
ceases its career as an inn the sign
board is carried out in procession and
interred with an appropriate burial
service, which ends with watering tb
grave with a gallon of beer or a bottle
Child's Image on Bank-Notes.
The accepted design for the new Aus
trian five-kroner bank notes, which will
be shortly issued, is remarkable for the
picture of an unusually beautirul child's
head, which forms its chief ornament.
The model for this head was the son of
Prinz Franz Jose Rohan, whom the
artist saw one day in the street, and
with whose beauty he was so much
struck that he asked for the child's
name, and obtained the parents per
mission to make a drawing of him for
Renders Them Senseless.
A narcotic bomb has been Invented
by an Austrian surgeon which may be
fired from any gun. The bomb has a
time fuse, and when dropped among a
regiment of the enemy will not explode,
but will fill the air with narcotic gases
strong enough to make 2.000 men uncon
scious for several hours.
