Reports of bootlegging and il illegal

prohibition state, are widly exagg exaggerated,

visiting his brother, H. W. Byers,

He asserts that there is less than
one-fifth the amount of liquor sold
in that state a3 is generally supposed
"Kansas is a dry state and it is
only where the city authorities are
lax that there is any liquor sold,"
said Mr. Byers. "In Leavenworth,

when saloons were operated openly.
"I traveled in Texas for six years.
In Texas there is the local option law
by which- means one town may be

Mercer had ordered the man to wait.
So the Kohinur's master filled and
lighted his pipe, and defining a course
from gangway to stern and back again,
fell to pacing it with pendulum-like
regularity and patience.
Meanwhile, no sooner was the launch
away from the yacht than' the girl's
mood underwent a sudden change,
Mercer had entered into the apparent
gay humor of the adventure; he was
even casting ahead, hoping that the
opportunity would present itself of ac-

him in a tone of deep concern,

j "No, no thank you. Only conduct

a few minutes for me."
! With this she lapsed into silence.
Mercer watched her while she adjust-
ed her veil so that it rendered her
completely unrecognizable, and mar marveled

He saw her enter a telephone-booth;
then he took up his station outside
and waited. More than one acquaint acquaintance

INFLUENCE ON JURORS
OF LAWYERS AND EDITORS
The old question of the influence
of newspapers on jurors was up in
the circuit court yesterday. (
The occasion was the attempt of
Messrs. W. 1 K. Zewadski "and Edwin
Spencer, attorneys for J. W. Hurst,
accused of the murder of L. E. Boi Boiler,
ler, Boiler, to obtain a change of venue. Mr.
Hurst's attorneys argued that on ac account
count account of the prejudice against their
client, principally caused by articles
In the Star, their client could not ob obtain
tain obtain a fair trial in Marion county.
' The principal offender, in the eyes
o? Messrs. Zewadski and Spencer, J. I
II. Benjamin, editor of the Star, was
put on the stand, and knowing very
well what shrewd practitioners the
-said lawyers are, and how quickly
they would trip him up if his feet
were unwary, he was badly scared.
However, Judge Bullock took charge
of the examination himself, which
immediately calmed the apprehen apprehensions
sions apprehensions of the agitated scribe.
The newspaper man had been sum summoned
moned summoned to give what might be consid considered
ered considered expert evidence as to the effect
reports of the crime had on the mind
, offthe public, and as to whether the
- said reports would so prejudice the
people that Hurst could not have a
fair trial. Mr. F. E. Harris, editor
oJ the Banner, and Mr. P. V. Leaven Leaven-:good,
:good, Leaven-:good, business manager of the Star,
were also questioned on this point,
and they all agreed in saying that
they did not think the defendant's
- cause was prejudiced by their publi publi--
- publi-- cations.
lit .may be said right here that
neither of the Ocala papers, while
both gave full reports of the. crime,
and sympathized with the victims,
made any denunciation of Hurst and
Ms accomplices or gave any advice
as to what their punishment should
be. They could hardly have said any
less than they did and have shown
anything like newspaper enterprise
' and human sympathy' in reporting
v the occurrence.
Judge Bullock carefully inquired
of the newspaper men if the feeling
against Hurst was persbnal or caus caused
ed caused by Iris alleged crime, and they
concurred in the statement that it
was due to the latter.
When Mr. Benjamin was asked
his ciinicn as to the effect of news newspaper
paper newspaper articles on jurors, he caused a
ripple of amusement by replying
that if he was a juror he would not
" be 'guided in his decision by any anything
thing anything he saw in a newspaper. This,
the audience considered a direct
blow' at the reliability of newspa newspa-pers
pers newspa-pers from the inside.
A minute later the editor went a
little out o,f his way to say that
neither would he be influenced in a
verdict by anything a lawyer might
say, but would be guided entirely by
the evidence of the witnesses and the
law as laid down by the judge. This
-caused another smile, as, for some
reason, people always rejoice at any any-une
une any-une taking a crack at the lawyers,
even those who have had to depend
on them to get them out of trouble.
Judge Bullock gravely reminded
the witness that the lawyers were
not on trial. The rebuke was de deserved,
served, deserved, as the remark was irrele irrelevant;
vant; irrelevant; "however, as it deals with what
the editor considers an "old error and
one that needs reforming, hewill try
.to give his reasons.
The editor of the Star does not
wish to condemn either his own pro profession
fession profession or that of the law, both of
. -which contain their fair proportion
of Intelligent and honorable men.
The public should understand, and
the more intelligent part of it does
understand, that a newspaper ac account
count account of any event cannot be evi evidence
dence evidence unless the man who- wrote it
saw the occurrence himself. Ac Accuracy
curacy Accuracy is a newspaper's chief asset,
Tbnt no matter how careful a reporter
3uay he in collecting news from
other people he is liable to overlook
or bei misinformed on the very point
that might decide a trial. These in
accuracies are more liable to happen
matters t lie tore.
trained newspaper man understands,
and that judges and lawyers under understand
stand understand even better.
As for the influence of a lawyer on
a jury, a lawyer goes into court to
take care of the interests of his
client. It is not only a matter of
business but a matter of honor with
him to clear his client if he can. A
murderer looks like a bloody crimi crimi-5nal
5nal crimi-5nal to the public at large, but to his
lawyer he is a trust, and a sacred
one, too. It is not so much to the
interest of the. criminal class as it is
to the interest of the public at large
that every man accused of crime
should have a fair trial and as good
a lawyer as he can obtain.
But the juror should realize that
the lawyer is doing everything in his
pewer to secure a verdict for his
client, and should therefore trust
more to his own intelligence arid to
the evidence than to the attempts of
the attorney to influence him. Law Lawyers
yers Lawyers by their eloquence and shrewd shrewdness
ness shrewdness have saved m?ny innocent men,
and have caused many guilty men to
be condemned. But the same talents

The faults in our legal system ar
not so much due to the lawyers as
they are to the people. Almost ev
ery improvement in the courts has
been due to the lawyers and judges
The public has been shy is doing its
part, and the greatest stumbling
block in the way of justice is the
overpowering disposition of our best
citizens te dodge jury duty.
It is fair tactics on the part of
lawyers defending a criminal to ob obtain
tain obtain jurors they think will be liable
to acquit him, to mislead the jurors
if they can, or do anything so long
as they do not try to pack juries or
introduce perjured witnesses. A
lawyer deefnding an innocent man
always wants the best jurors and the
best evidence obtainable, and there
are comparatively few judges who
do not wish justice to be done. If
the public would do its share, the
courts would contain little terror for
an honest man.
It seems to the. Star, which may
be prejudiced, but thinks it isn't,
that Judge Bullock made a just and
vise decision in refusing a change
of venue. If hig decision is .upheld,
it will go a long way toward dissi dissipating
