Flagrant Abuse of Justice in
Present Procedure, Says
American Bar Asso-ciation.
TOO MUCH TECHNICALITY
Appenln Klinuld Ho Podded on Merits
of the Cnsc Inkteail of Sink
ing; Trial a Legal
famo,
New York, Aug. 18. Court of appeal
will no longer 'decide either civil or i
criminal litigation brought before
them on purely technical points, but
will base their rulings on the merits
of the cases If the recommendations
formulated by a special committee of
the American Bar association shall be
come law.
The committee was appointed by the
association at Its last nnnual meeting
to suggest remedies and draft proposal
laws to prevent delay and unnecessary
copt In litigation. Its report will
presented at the next annual meeting
to be held In Seattle from Aug. 2!i to 2S.
It openn with a .statement that tlw
existing evil which seems most s"Hous
to the committee Is the disposition In
ninny Jurisdictions to dispose of ap
peals, or vrlJtH of error, both In IH
and criminal ensrs, upon te'-hnl"!!
grounds, and dot to decide them upon
the merits. In the judgment of the
committee, the rule for deriding ap
peals and writs of error should not b"
based on reversible error committed In
the court, below, but upon the merits as
the case appears upon the record. '.
Continuing, the report calls attention
to the fact that the tendency of .he
courts In common law cases is to con
strue adherence to strict legal rules as
the right of each party, and to reverse
If there has been any Infraction of
those rules.
"This mak"N the trial of a case a
game," decWired the committee, In
which the one wins who playa the
most skilfully, the merits of the con
troversy having no part."
The unrestricted right to a writ of
error In criminal cases Is characterized
by the committee as a flagrant abusi
In Judicial procedure
"These writs," the committee add,
"are constantly sued out solely for de
lay. The punishment of 'notorious
;rlm!nals thus Is constantly being post
poned In violation of every principle of
justice. This Is especially flagrant In
the Milng out -of writs of error from j
the Supreme court of the United States
to review the decision of the highest
reiirts of criminal Jurisdiction. In 'the
everal states. We recommend that no
erli of error returnable In criminal
raffs to the Supreme court of the
United States should he allowed unless
a Jilstloe of that court shall certify
that there s probable cause to believe
that the defendant was unjustly con
victed." In support ' of this recommendation
the committee quotes an address of
Andrew P. White In which he Mated
that while murders were Increasing
rapidly, yet the procedure against them
was becoming more and more Ineffec
tive, and In the light of recent cases
, In New York and elsewhere was seen
tit be a farce, adding that lie favored
preventing appeals based on mere tech
nical matters and upon errors of trial
Judges In trifling matters of procedure
and Hie like which have nothing to do
with the guilt or Innocence.
The committee declared that the re
forms In civil procedure which It rec
ommends are not theoretical hut have
been tried and adopted In England to
the satisfaction of the bar and the
benefit of litigants.
"Ho far a reform In criminal pro
cedure Is concerned." sa.vR the report
"the. grievance of which we complain
Ms never exiatcd In England, but the
tatntory provisions there are similar
tn those recommended by us."
The committee will submit the draft
of an act to amend In, the particulars
coneernel the judicial procedure of
courts of the United States.
$500,00Q,000 IFOR NAVY
Great Britain Intends to Maintain
Two-Power Slandnrd nt, All Costs,
London, Aug. 17. The British gov
ernment, according to the Daily Tele
graph, contemplates raising a large
loan In view of the growing naval
competition abroad. It Is stated that
financiers of the highest standing
have undertaken to find $500,000,000
on nominal terms to meet the neces
sities of the fleet for the, next few
years without disorganizing the an
nual budgets, or casting a heavy bur
den upon the present generation.
If such a plan Is adopted It will be
because it is Impossible to forecast the
future requirements of the navy until
foreign shlp-hulldlng programs have
crystallized, and the setting aside of
this fund would be a declaration, trans
lated Into terms of cash, of the coun
try's Intention to maintain a two-power
standard at all costs.

BUCKLEY TO SUCCEED
Probably Will Be Named Temporary
Registrar J Mayor.
The vacancy caused In City ball by
the death of Registrar of Vital Statis
tics James J. Carr, which occurred
yesterday will probably he filled In a
day or so by the mayor with a tem
porary appointment. Under the char
tor a (.pedal election Is required in
such a case within thirty days. Chief
Clerk John Buckley, who has been
Mr. Carr's right hand man for many
year will probably he named to take
charge of the office until the people
shall elect a successor for the office.
This at least seems to be the general
opinion.
LAKE MEN ACTIVE
But New Britain Party Leaders
Said to Favor Lilley for
Governor.
POSITIONS ARE REVERSED
Delegation from Manchester Will
Probably Be for Hartford Man
General Dwlglit righting.
Political matters are becoming
warmer and warmer as the
days go
bv nt. in wanfnivi i,. i v ,.
Britain to-morrow evening will be
held the cnucua for the election of
delegates to tho state convention and
the Lilley and Lake forces are both
very active.
The branch of the state machine
which Is located In New Britain Is
naturally for Lilley and the people
now backing the Waterhnry man are
the same ones who 'backed Lake for
lieutenant governor against Prank B.
Weeks' of Mlddletown two years ago.
Ernet N. Humphrey, who Is at pres
ent acting mayor of New Britain, will
probably head the local delegation
and he Is believed to be a Llllev man.
Following the usual custom the dele-.
gatlon will be uninstructed except by
the machine leader.
At present It looks as If the dele
gation to the state convention from
Manchester would be for Lake. The
caucus will be held next Monday
evening and there has been little talk
In favor of Lilley. The Cheney family
Is In favor of tho lieutenant gover
nor. In Bristol the friends of General
Dwlght of Hartford, who Is out to se
cure the nomination for congressman
against Mr. Henry of Rockvllle, have
hecome very n.ctlve and will try to se
cure a delegation favorable to the
Hartford man. The only thing which
lies In their path Is that Congressman
Henry procured a largo appropriation
for a postofMce In Bristol and the peo
ple have not forgotten It.

will be sought out and provided with
arguments through which It Is hoped
to convince them of the soundness of

ESCAPES JAIL BY

Four Days to Serve, Makes
Successful Sunday
Flight.
WARRANT AWAITING HIM
To Bo Charged Willi Burglary I'pon
Expiration of Time Her' Kin
ployed im Helper In En
gine Boom.
With four days more of a sentence
of thirty days and costs to serve John
Connors, thirty-four years of age,
from Ansonia, made good his escape
from the county Jail In Whalley ave
nue some time between 11 a. m. and
2 o'clock p. in, yesterday and has not
yet been recaptured. Connors was
sent In on a charge of Idleness and
the sentence was almost complete, but
there was a warrant out against him
on the more serious charge of burg
lary, which Is probably what tempted
hlni to try to get away with the term
so near an end. Be was to be served
with the wairant on the expiration of
his present term In the Jail.
Connors was employed In the Jail
as an assistant to the fireman In the
fire room, which Is In the basement of
the Jail building. He was present at
roll call In the morning and then went
down Into this room to work as usual.
He got hold of some pieces of heavy
Iron which are used In the factory
connected with the Jail and when
there was no one to watch him he
succeeded In wrenching free two bars
from one of the windows. All the
windows In the basement are heavily
barred as they are right on a level
with the ground. When he got the
bars nut It was ah easy matter to
climb out through the window and he
was lucky enough to escape from the
grounds without being detected. He
was found missing at roll call and In
vestigation showed how the bird had
flown.
Besides serving this term Connors
had been at the county Jail here once
before serving ninety days at that
time. All the police stations were no
tified and a general alarm for him
has been sent out.

has been liberated from prison by or
der of the emperor. Volgt on Decem
ber 1, 1906, was sentenced to scrv

and proceeded to Coepenlck, a small
town near here, where he arrested the
burgomaster ahd the treasurer of the
town and took possession of the cash,
amounting to about $1,000. Soon all the
world, Including Germany Itself, was
laughing at the absurdity of the affair,
for It was not long before the nature of
the trick was discovered.

In the race war In Springfield. The
attempt to cut telephone and fire alarm

of Gen. Wells commanding a provi
