In Gilbert v.

A man was convicted of bigamy from 1 Hale's Pleas of the Crown, 506:-“If A. find under the following circumstances :-The prisoner had, the purse of B. in the highway, and take and carry it in 1864, married a woman whom we will call A.

COCKBURN, C.J., however, observed, prisoner escaped the conviction for bigamy in respect of one former marriage, on the ground that he was guilty Some time ago we took occasion to point out the of bigamy in respect of another former marriage, but useless and even mischievous character of the oldthis is not the case : the woman A. might possibly have fashioned system of indictments. It is a survival from a been alive when the marriage with C. took place, and period of our law when, perhaps, it had its uses, an dead when the marriage with D. took place, in which obsolete application of that almost superstitious concase, though the marriage with C. would be a bigamy, the sideration for legal instruments and documents which marriage with D. would be no bigamy. The case was once so largely prevailed in the law, and was, no doubt, a one of a slip in the way the matter was left to the jury, valuable principle in earlier times. The indictment is, which must sometimes occur; but, apart from the point in form, a presentment, and in early days, we suppose, upon which the decision actually went, the case illustrates when the function of the jury was to present, as being very forcibly the possible absurdities that may arise from neighbours already cognizant of the facts, rather than to the cumbrous rigidity which still characterizes our to try, it might be necessary that the charge should be criminal procedure. If the case had been correctly left set out with rigid accuracy, and it seems obvious that to the jury, in what position would it have stood ? | such accuracy would be a safeguard. But now the The evidence on which the jury would have had to indictment answers other purposes. Its really essential decide whether the woman A. was alive in 1879 function is to inform the prisoner what the charge when the marriage with C. took place was not against him is. We have pointed out how badly and very satisfactory. There is, it is said, a presumption cumbrously it performs this function. The depositions that the marriage with C. was valid ; that it could not be really give the prisoner the requisite information. What, presumed to have been a bigamy, and that the presump in fairness, the prisoner ought to be informed of are the tion in its favour rebutted the presumption of the con facts upon which the prosecution mean to rely, and, tinued existence of A. It was held that it was for the perhaps, in addition to this, he ought to have some notice jury to decide between these conflicting presumptions, or particulars of the crime or crimes, whether statutory whereas the Common Serjeant, who tried the case, told or common law, of which it is alleged the facts show the jury that there being a primâ facie case of bigamy, him to be guilty. Of course, if there were a code, that the onus was thrown on the prisoner of proving that the would be done by referring to the section of the code. woman A. was alive when he married O. But assuming The question whether more than one charge should be that the jury on the facts had come to the conclusion tried at the same trial ought to be one for the discretion that A. was alive in 1879, when the marriage with C. of the court; the distinction between felonies and mistook place-it will be observed that the marriage with D. demeanors in this respect seems quite illogical and groundtook place in 1880—what ground in reason, without more, less. The case upon which we have founded the above would they have for presuming that A. was dead in 1880 ? remarks affords another illustration of the vices of the It seems to us that in reason and justice the prisoner present system to which we before drew attention. certainly ought to have been convicted. If A. was dead in 1879 he was guilty of bigamy in marrying D., C. being alive. If A. was to be presumed to be alive in 1879, she ought surely to be presumed to be alive in 1880. But the difficulty would then have arisan that
