lay I call attention to the case of n
worthy man who is in prison for resist
ing the attempts of landowners to seize
and incloso tho land of tho people? The
case I refer to is that of tho Uev. F.
Haydn Williams, who is incarcerated in
Holloway jail, and has now been impris
oned tor ii whule month localise he
knocked down a wall which had been
built to inclose what had been from
time immemorial an open space, called
the Abbey plain, where tho people used
to play football and other games.
The injustice of Mr. Williams' impris
onment is, that instead of lieing properly
tried and if it is found that ho has duiit
wrong made to pay for the damage h(
has done to the wall of the lord of tht
manor, he has lieen sent to prison with
out trial 011 a ehargo of contempt ol
court, and there ho may remain month
after month, according to the caprice ol
the court of queen's bench. This powei
of committal to prison for an iiulefinitt
period on such a fanciful ehargo as con
tempt of court seems to 1110 to be a thiii(i
savoring of the proceedings of the court
of the star chamber, which was aliolished
for its arbitrary acts by the breath ol
jMipubu indignation. In my ignorance
I thought there was passed by tho repre
sentatives of the people, for tlieir protec
tion from arbitrary imprisonment, an act
called the habeas corpus act, which pro
vented a man from being capriciously
imprisoned for an indefinite timo with
out fair trial if ho has been guilty of any
crime. But here is a man a gentleiniu.
and a minister being treated im if hi

A strange east; of insanity has recent
ly come to light at Ilallston. Tho un
fortunate person is Charles II. Morris
thirty-two years of ago and an expert
accountant. Ho has for a long thin
been known as a man of many eccen
tricities, and has frequently been made
the object of practical jokes by sporting
men. Itis thought that constant joking
and teasing have been a potent factor in
impairing his mental faculties.
lie has several times lately left town
for a few days, sometimes on business,
sometimes on pleasure, and before leav
ing caused to bo published in the local
papers paragraphs to tho effect that In.
"had gone to New York to attend a con
vent ion of the ragpickers at tho Fifth
Avenue hotel." About two months ago
invitations were sent out announcing
that he was about to marry a well known
young woman from another town. The
invitations were bona fide, but on the
day of tho wedding Morris remained in
town, denying that ho had any thought
of marrying. Ho is considered a lirst
cla-s accountant, and appears to be as
sain- as any one except for theso actions.
