In charging the grand jury at the Chelmsford Assizes, on the 29th ult., Mr. Justice Hawkins said he was very strongly of opinion that the Criminal Evidence Bill would not be of the smallest service to the interests of justice. ‘As the law at present stood, every prisoner had the best chance of telling his story at the first possible opportunity when he was before the magistrates. That statement was not upon oath, and the person making it was not liable to be cross-examined. A prisoner, therefore, could tell his vcrsion of the affair under the best possible circumstances. Theoretically, of course, every prisoner should have the right of denying upon oath the charge made against him upon oath. In his experience, however, if, when a prisoner made his defence before the jury, he told a plain, truthful story, which was found to be the same as that which he had told before the magistrates, the jury listened to what he had to say with the utmost care, and if the accused person was really innocent his chances of being acquitted were vastly improved. The practice of prisoners, when before the magistrates, “ reserving their defence ” was one which, in his opinion, did not benefit the accused person at all, for if he had an answer to the charge the best time for givin it was the earliest possible opportunity he had of doing so-—viz., before tihe magistrates. As the law new stood, a prisoner had a far better chance of getting justice than if he gave evidence upon oath without its value being tested. Speaking after a very long experience, he thought the law was good enough as it stood; but what the Legislature in its wisdom might think fit to do he could not tell.
At Chelmsford, on Saturday, says the Times, before Mr. Justice Hawkins, an important point of law arose during the hearing of a charge of rape. It was proposed by Mr. C. E. Jones, the prosecuting counsel, to put in evidence verbatim the complaint made by the prosecutrix. Counsel cited as an authority the leading case of Reg. v. Lilly/man (1896, 2 Q. B. 167, and 18 Cox_ C. C. 346). Mr. Justice Hawkins, however, said that case was really no authority at all for the present proposition. No case had been more greatly misunderstood, nor more frequently misapplied. All that Reg. v. Lillyman decided was that the terms of a complaint were only admissible as evidence of a wont of consent by the prosccutrix, and not as evidence of the truth of the charge against
time reviously, it was obviously not part of the res yutm. The difliculty was, however, got over by admitting the former part and rejecting the latter. Had, however, the words “ I have taken poison ” been used to support a defence of suicide the whole statement would have becoine ndmissible to rebut that defence. The whole question of “dividing statements ” had been carefully considered by him, and the result at which he had arrived was an important development of what was decided in Rey. v. Lillyman.
The July issue of the Law Quarterly Rat-iew contains the following graceful tribute by Sir Frederick Pollock to the late Mr. H. \V. Challis: “Just three months ago the profession underwent a heavy loss by the death of Mr. H. XV. Challis, one of the last of the conveyanccrs of the old school, and worthy to stand with the best of them in the profound and subtle learning of their special branch. Mr. Challis began his studies for the bar comparatively late in life; he was born (according to Foster's ‘ Men at the Bar’) in 1841, took his B.A. degree at Oxford in 186-1, and was called only in 1876. His professional reputation was therefore made with extraord nary rapidity. But for his temporary conversion to the Church of Rome he would no doubt have taken a fellowship at Merton, where he was a post-master, and perhaps have become an emender of classical texts instead of a follower of Fearue and Preston. As it was, he was xi disciple and ally of Cardinal Newman for some years, and taught Moral Philosophy at Edgbaston, little suspecting the more delicate intellectual bond that was to link him afterwards with the Catholic pure conveyancere of the last century. It was presumably this episode in his life that gave Mr. Challis a certain old-world and clerical manner, worn by him with a quite individual grace, and puzzling to the friends of his later days who did not know his history. We cannot undertake here to give an account of his work: but it cannot be too often repeated that Challis on Real Property is, and long will be, indispensable to the student who wants really to master the law. To such an one it may be said, after Q,uintilian’s well-known pattern, ‘ When you take delight in Challis, you may know that you are on the way to be a real property lawyer,’ Mr. Challis's friends were well aware, and those who read his excursuses with due care may discover, that there was a considerable reserve of humour behind his learning."
In Thomas Edwin Allaire, an Infant, by Ada A. Allaire, his Next Friend (Appellant) v. St. Lu/se’s Hospital, decided by the Illinois Supreme Court, First District, on appeal from the Superior Court of Cook County, the interesting and novel question was presented, says the Albany Law Journal, whether an infant could maintain an action for an injury occasioned before its birth. Briefly stated, the facts appmr to be substantially as follows: In February, 1886, Mrs. Allaire became a patient at the hospital, for hire, there to remain until after the delivery of her child; that on the 2nd of February, while being conveyed in an elevator to an upper floor, where was located the obstetrical department, she was badly injured, as alleged, through the defendants’ negligence, the chair in which she was seated (the elevator car being unenclosed) striking a projection on the side of the elevator shaft. It was further alleged that by reason of such injuries and the manner in which they were received the said Ada A. Allaire was put in great terror and fear of death for herself and plaintiff, then unborn, and that as the direct and proximate cause of said injuries to his said mother, said plaintiff was “ greatly injured, strained, bruised, and wounded in his left limb, left side, left hip, left arm, and felt hand, so that at his birth, on the 6th of February, 1886, his left foot, left limb, left side, and left hand were and became, and hitherto have been, and still are, wasted, withered, and atrophied, and his said foot smaller than natural by more than one-half, and made thereby to turn inward and the sole thereof upward, and his said limb shorter than natural by more than four inches, and his said hip, side, and arm, by reason of said negligence and injuries, became, were, and are made shrunken, atrophied, and paralytic, and his said limb without flesh thereon, and from thence hitherto have so been, and still are, and said plaintiff thereby greatly and sadly crippled for life, and in endeavouring to be cured and healed of his said injuries has laid out and expended the sum of two thousand dollars (2,000 dols.) and more (the said Ada A. Allaire having heretofore, for a valuable consideration, settled with the said defendants for, and released them from all damages for, said injuries to herself alone), to the damage of the plaintiff in the sum of fifty thousand. dollars (50,000 dols.).” While conceding that there was no precedent—no decided case like the one at bar—Judge Windes held that there was good reason, as matter of law, why the action would lie on behalf of the appellant in this case.
