What would you do sir, if you owned a big stock of light and
medium weight clothing but knew that if by carrying it over to

A Sample ofthe Idiotic Style In Which
They Are Written.
Murder has been written of as a fine
art, but It remained for the United
States to treat It as a sport. In many
of the states an indictment for mur
der contains nearly enough words to
fill a column and sounds like the con
versation of an idiot. Here is a sam
"That the said J. F. G., a certain
pistol then and there charged with
gunpowder and leaden bullets, which
said pistol he, the said J. F. G., then
and there In his right hand bad and
held, then and there unlawfully, pur
posely and of deliberate and premedi
tated malice, did discharge and shoot
off to, against and upon the said F.
M., with the intent aforesaid, and that
the said J. F. G., with the leaden bul
lets aforesaid, out of the pistol afore
said, by the force of the gunpowder
aforesaid, by the said J. F. G., then
and there discharged and shot off as
aforesaid, him, the said F. M., in and
upon the upper right side of the back
of him, the said F. M., then and
This isn't as Idiotic as it looks, how
ever. It is part of our sporting theo
ry of justice, which makes a murder
trial a game of skill and finesse be
tween opposing counsel. By the
slightest deviation' from statutory
form one side may lose the game.
Convictions for the most abhorrent
crimes hare repeatedly been set aside
because of trivial verbal omissions In
Had the murder referred to in the
above quotation occurred in Canada
the indictment wv. have read sim
ply: "The jurors oi our lord the. king
present that J. F. l. on the th day
of August, one thousand nine hundred
and eight, at the city of Winnipeg, in
the province of Manitoba, murdered
F. M " Canadian procedure concerns
itself with, the murder. Ours in many
jurisdictions concerns itself with the
legal sport, whether the murderer is
punished or not being a secondary con
sideration. Saturday Evening Post
