The Calhoun. trial, assuming that the selection of the jury
is being conducted iv strict accordance with law, is bringing
into strong relief the defects of the jury system. One
thdusand men have b.eu excused for cause in this trial, with
the jury box a long way from being filled. Probably as
many more'talesmen will be excused before the taking of
testimony will be in order. It is estimated that every juror
accepted will cost the county $200, in the way of jury fees
alone, before the panel is completed, and the trial proper
commences. The other expenses in the shape of stenogra
pher's fees, etc., will probably far exceed this sum. At the
pace set iv this noted case, the prosecution of criminal
charges would bankrupt many counties. The selection of a
jtiry in this case has degenerated into a broad farce. It will
perhaps lead to the amendment of the law in this respect, • so
as to make the empauelment of a jury a less expensive pro
cess, as well as securing a more intelligent class of citizens
to fry an issue. It is plainly evident in this Calhoun trial
that the most important consideration with either side is not
the character of the testimony in the case, but the mental
make-up of the jurors selected to try it. The prevaling
opinion is that the bulk of the army of jurors who will be
discarded as inelligible in the trial are more competent as
regards intelligence and fairness todecide the issues involved
than those who will eventually be retained.
Grove L. Johnson's bill amending the law of newspaper
libel by repealing the provision that before suit is started the
plaintiff must put up a bond of $500 to insure defendant
against loss in the event of plaintiff failing to sustain his
charges, has been reported favorably by the house committee
in charge thereof. The press is a unit against this bill, as
no laudable purpose can be served by the adoption of the
amendment, the practical effect of which would be to need
lessly hamper the press by meritless suits. The California
Press Association is strongly opposed to this change, and it
is hoped the legislature will refuse to pass it. It is engineered
by those who have a personal feeling against # a portion of
the press, cv account of adverse criticism in years gone by.
