THE CRIMINAL Evidence Act has now been in force for over a week, and as far as can be gathered from the newspaper accounts of trials in which the accused persons have given evidence, it has worked very satisfactorily up to the present. Cases

have been reported in which persons have been acquitted when the THE CASE of Barnes v. Glenton (1898, 2 Q. B. 223) is the latest evidence for the prosecution made things look very black indeed of the series of decisions relating to the operation of section 8 of for them, apparently entirely because of the new aspect put the Real Property Limitation Act, 1874. Money was lent to A. upon the facts by the sworn testimony of the accused. On the and others in 1882 on security which may be shortly described other hand, more than one case has occurred in which a guilty as a sub-mortgage not containing any covenant for repayment person has secured his own just punishment by clearing up in of the advance. Interest was paid from time to time by A.'s the course of cross-examination any doubts which the evidence co-debtors up to 1896, and, the above action being subsequently for the prosecution might have left in the minds of the jury. brought against A. and his co-debtors, the question arose Not many serious difficulties seem to have yet arisen as to the whether such payment by them kept the debt alive as against construction of the Act, but at least two decisions have been A. Section 8 bars any action or suit to recover any money given which will probably be generally disapproved of. The secured by “any mortgage, judgment, or lien, or otherwise first of these is a matter of small importance. The Act provides charged upon or payable out of any land or rent" after twelve that an accused person “shall not be called as a witness in pur- years, " unless in the meantime some part of the principal suance of this Act except upon his own application.” At the money or some interest thereon shall have been paid," or such London Sessions, counsel defending a prisoner proposed, at the acknowledgment given as the section requires. "It, then, the end of the evidence for the prosecution, to call his client as a case fell within section 8, it would seem to follow, on a literal witness. The Deputy-Chairman, however, ruled that counsel construction of the words of the enactment, that any payment must not make the application for the person charged, but that on account of principal, or any payment of interest thereon, such person must apply with his own mouth for leave to go into would altogether stop the statute from running. But it was the witness-box. We cannot think that the Act means this. contended for A. that, there being no express coveuant, the Surely an application made by a prisoner through his counsel liability, if any, was for a simple contract debt within the is bis own application. If the Act does mean what Mr. Limitation Act, 1623, with the result that the six years' limitaLOVELAND-LOVELAND thinks it means, there does not seem to be tion of actions applied, and with the further result that A. was any good reason for such a provision, as a prisoner will, of protected by the Mercantile Law Amendment Act, 1856, s. 14, course, make the application as a rule on the prompting of his from being chargeable by reason of any payment made by A.'s counsel. Moreover, it is hardly seemly, when a prisoner is co-contractors or co-debtors, which enactment, it was admitted, defended by counsel who advises that he shall give evidence, did not apply to the Real Property Limitation Act, 1874: see for a judge to intervene and deter the man from following his Re Frisby, Allison v. Frisby (38 W. R. 65, 43 Ch. D. 106). counsel's advice by an exposition of the law as to perjury. In Sutton v. Sutton (31 W. R. 369, 22 Ch. D. 511) section 8

was held to apply not only to the remedy against the land, but

also to an action on an express personal covenant to repay in a THE OTHER decision referred to is one of much greater mortgage. The decision of the Court of Appeal in that case importance, and is really a serious matter. Section 2 of the was a surprise to the profession (808 43 Ch. D., at p. 108), and Act provides that when the only witness called for the defence the subsequent history of the case (which is to be found in the is the accused person himself, he shall be called immediately judgment of CHITTY, J., in Re Turner, Turner v. Spencer, 43 after the close of the evidence for the prosecution. Also, by W. R. 153) shews that the plaintiff's claim might have been so section 3 it is enacted that where the right of reply depends framed as not to have raised the point decided, which proved upon

the question whether evidence has been called for the not to be conclusive of the case, but it leaves the decision defence, the fact that the person charged has been called as a witness'shall not of itself confer on the prosecution the right of limitation. In Barnes v. Glenton the court (Lord RUSSELL, C.J.)

untouched, and that has become a landmark in the law of reply. On these two sections the Recorder of Nottingham has refused to confine section 8 to cases where there was a specialty, decided, in a case defended by counsel in which the prisoner holding that the effect of section 8 was to take out of the alone gave evidence for the defence, that counsel for the Limitation Act of James I. for all purposes all actions of debt prosecution had no right to sum up his case after the prisoner secured by mortgage or otherwise charged upon or payable out had given evidence. Now, it is expressly provided by 28 Vict. of land. It was pointed cut that cases of security by lien,

The case was therefore shall have the right to address the jury a second time “ for the governed by section 8, and the only question left was whether purpose of summing up the evidence against such person," in the payments made by A.'s co-debtors were sufficient to keep the case witnesses are not called for the defence; and further, that claim alive against A., as to which the decision in the Court of save for this alteration in the practice the “right of reply should be as theretofore. It is clear, therefore, that a “summing In the opinion of Fry, L.J., in that case, “a payment satisfying

R. at p. 66, 43 Ch. D. at p. 117). If it is proper for counsel for the Crown to sum up his case where no witnesses are called for the defonce, still more desirable is it that he should do so when the prisoner gives evidence, and the Ir is, perhaps, one of the chief functions of the courts to Criminal Evidence Act could nover have intended to take away apply Acts of Parliament to cases which the wisdom of the the power given by Denman's Act. It is to be observed that Legislature has not foreseen. A good illustration is afforded by where the prisoner alone gives evidence for the defence, it is the the case of Jones v. Walker in the Birmingham County Court, express purpose of the Act to reserve to his counsel the valuable which is reported elsewhere. A man who had been working as privilege of having the last word to the jury, and this is a a blacksmith applied for employment in the erection of a gasmost fair and proper provision.

Nothing was counsel for the Crown to sum up his case, he can be deprived of said as to the rate of wages. He had not worked more than the right so to do by the calling of the accused alone as a three hours when an accident occurred by which he was severely witness, which perhaps still further complicates the case, though injured and rendered incapable of work. it in no way deprives the prisoner's counsel of his privilege of accident brought the case within the Act of 1897, but a dispute the last word. "We observe that Lord Ludlow, in his remarks arose as to the rate of compensation.
