Carious Cases In the History et Crime.
The Celebrated Beem Trial in Vermont
Instances Where the Innocent
Perhaps the difficulties in evidence direct
and circumstantial, were never mere
strongly shown than in the once celebrated
case of the brothers Boern convicted in
Vermont, 1819, of the murder of their
brother-in-law, in 1812. It appeared in
testimony that the latter, a half-witted
fellow, and a burden te the family, was
last seen in a field with the two men, and
there had a quarrel, in which he had been
struck en the head with a stake, and
somehow had finally disappeared from
the locality. Seven years after, some
bones, supposed te belong te the
missing man, one of his buttons and his
knife, were found near, in an old cellar
in the field, and the men were arrested
Upen their trial they both confessed te
the murder, and gave the details, and theii
immediately appealed te the Legislature
te commute their sentence te imprison
ment for life. This mercy was only grant
ed te one of them, but the interest of cer
tain gentlemen being aroused by the case,
careful search was made and the missing
man found in New Jersey, brought back
and recognized by all his old companions,
and the men were set free. The explana
tion of the singular conduct of the accused
is found in the bad advice of their friends,
who, knowing that public opinion ran
strongly against, and thinking it would
hang them, advised them te the confession
in-order that they might get the lighter
sentence of perpetual imprisonment.
It was said that the French naturalist,
Cuvier, from a single fossil bone, could
describe the structure and habits of ex
tinct races of animals. But bones neither
lie nor mistake, while witnesses de both,
and no court is infallible. The cases arc
numerous en record te show that even the
senses cannot be implicitly relied en, even
when the veracity of the witness is unques
tionable. In cases of highway robbery a
man's face has been repeatedly sworn te
from the glimpse get from the light of a
gun or pistol flash, whereas accurate ex
periment always shows the thing te be im
possible. In a case of theft, a woman
swore a certain gown was hers ; being
asked by a juryman te try it en, it was
found net te fit at all, and she confessed
her mistake. The fact was, that the pris
oner had stolen the gown from a neighbor,
though this was found out only after the
acquittal. Anether woman, being robbed,
swore a certain black pocket-book found en
a man arrested for the crime, was hers,
which would have sent him te the gallows
had net a countryman found another
black pocket-book while reaping, and hast
ening te the trial, the same witness find
ing all, and her very money safe, confessed
she was mistaken, and the accused went
free. A signature te a certain deed was
sworn te by respectable and honest parties
as Lord Elden's, but Lord Eldencamc into
court and swore that he never attested a
deed in his life. In a celebrated Scotch
trial, for forgery, intricate and far-reaching,
and which involved the title te one of
the best estates in the realm, half a dozen
engravers swore that certain numerous
letters were written by different persons,
though the prisoner afterward confessed he
wrote them all. His conviction was partly
insured by a sharp lawyer noting that, in
all the documents, certain words were
curiously misspelled, and, en the prisoner
being required, in open court, te write
these words, he misspelled them as they
were written down in documents purport
ing te have been penned by many different
persons, living even in half a dozen differ
ent generations. In a murder trial, a
piece of rope found near the victim was
sworn te as the same kind of rope
as a piece found in possession of
the acecused, a bit of testimony
which would have hung him had net a
repemakcr examined and testified that one
piece was twisted te the right while the
ether was twisted te the left. A half
dozen witnesses swore that they saw a cer
tain person at a certain hour of the clock.
Being asked te say what time it was by a
clock in the court room net one of them
could tell. This was a case of downright
lyimr te prove an alibi. An eminent Eng
lish lawyer swore positively te two men
who, he said, robbed him in bread day
light. It was proved that at the time of
the robbery they were se far off as te make
the thing impossible. Shortly after the
true robbers were taken with the stolen
goods en them. The prosecutor then con
fessed his mistake, and is said te have
given a money value te the men whom he
came very near sending te the gallows.
Besides, accused persons often behave
very strangely, even when innocent. Seme
run away, which, in old times, was held
se sure a proof of guilt that, in England
in cases of felony and treason, night
carried forfeiture of goods, whether inno
cent or guilty. It is new in proof that
innocent persons, timid or ignorant, or
ill-advised, when accused of crime often
run away and de a great many ether
foolish things. Daniel Webster, in the fa
mous murder trial at Salem, spoke the fa
mous epigram, " Suicide is confession," a
very fine sentence, but very peer law, since
even innocent persons, falsely accused, have
often died by their own hand te escape
further misery. Sir Edward Coke tells of
an uncle bringing up his orphan niece, and
had had her lands for fee until she came
te sixteen years. "When eight or nine, her
uncle correcting her, she was heard te say
" Oh, geed uncle, kill me net." At this
time the child disappeared and could net
be found. The uncle, arrested en suspi
cion, was bailed and told te find the child.
Fearing what might happen te him, if he
failed, he brought another child, very like
the true one, into court. The cheat was
discovered, and the man hanged. But the
child had only run away into another coun
ty, and been taken in by hospitable stran
gers, and, at sixteen years of age, came
back and claimed her property.
New, proof, as defined by the lawyers,
is only a presumption of the highest order.
Cunning is but a sinister or crooked wis
dom, while human nature in the court
room often turns out te be a singular
and fallible element in the attempted
equation of justice. We cannot be sur
prised, therefore, that se many innocent
persons have suffered, and, upon the
whole, the wonder is that se many of the
guilty are punished. Yet, appearances
may be very strong against a man, and yet
he be innocent. In 1827 Themas Gill was
convicted in England of stealing two oxen.
He had just finished his apprenticeship te
a butcher, and, after paying a visit te his
uncle in the country, in order te save ex
pense, was traveling en feet back te Len
den. About 3 o'clock in the morning, he
met a roan, riding en a pony and driving
two oxen, who offered Gill five shillings te
drive them te Londen, and agreeing te
meet him en Westminster bridge. The
young man, willing te earn an honest
penny, agreed, and was arrested shortly
after, with the cattle in his possession, by
the owner in het pursuit. Arrested, he
gave a false name te conceal his situation
from his friends. He was pardoned as he
was en the point of being transport
ed for life. The simple fact was,
that the real thief, hotly pursued,
had taken this cruel way te rid him
self of the cattle and the crime.
In France, a young man was in the ser
vice of an old woman and had a key te
her house. She was found murdered,
with a piece of his cravat near her, and a
lock of his hair clenched in her hand. He
was arrested and executed. But he was
innocent. An intimate friend, who after
ward confessed, managed te get an impres
sion of the key, picked up one of his old
cravats about the house, and, combing the
young man's queue, had scarcely abstract
ed hair enough te make the lock found in
the dead woman's clutch. Sad as it
sounds and is, the history of the law
shows a list of cases where the innocent
have died a shameful death through the
mistake of justice. These legal disasters
have had for ther basis net se much an
unfair or heartless trial as a failure te
weigh wisely the peculiar circumstantial
evidence involved. But, en the ether
hand, justice eftentime seems aided either
by geed luck or the Divine wrath of the
gods themselves, in detecting criminals.
In 1830 the body of a man was discovered
in England who had been murdered 23
years before. His widow identified his
remains lrem the skull, his shoes and a
carpenter's rule found with the bones.
The murderer was then found and ex
ecuted. In 1813 a Cornish peasant
was found murdered, and his body
dragged under a hedge. It was
shrewdly surmised by the detectives that
the murderer was a stranger in these
parts, since a native would have been very
likely te have concealed the body in some
abandoned coal mine, many of which were
in the same field. Frem this slight clew
mainly, they arrested an Irish soldier
whose regiment had lately come there and
en him they found the dead man s purse.
He was executed. Three ruffians, mur
dering a peer Italian boy te sell his body,
were largely convicted by their giving
away some white mice which there was
every reason te believe had belonged te
the unfortunate child. A sailor was main
ly convicted as an accomplice in a brutal
murder in a Londen bawdy-house from the
fact that the victim's hands were tied be
hind him with what is known as a sailor's
knot. Where a man was shot by a ball,
the wad en the ball was shown te be half
of a certain ballad, the ether part of which
was found in the prisoner's pocket. Con
victed. A man assailed by a robber struck
him in the face with a key. A mark en
the prisoner's face corresponded with the
wards or divisions of the key. Convicted.
In 1752, in England, a man and woman
from within a certain house gave the
alarm that some one had entered and mur
dered an inmate. Thedowenthe grass out
side the house was found te be undisturbed.
The living inmates were convicted. In
1816, in England, a man was tried for the
murder of another, where the strugglehad
been severe. Impressions were found, in
the clay, of a man who had worn breeches
of striped corduroy, patched with the same
material ; but the patches were net set en
straight, the ribs of the patch meeting the
hollows of the original corduroy. The ac
cused was shown te have his breeches
patched thus, and this greatly aided his
conviction. Dew and snow have often
helped te track the murderer, and many a
man has perished en the gallows the pecu
liarity of whose shoes, or the curious way
in which nails are set in them, aided con
viction. A man arrested in his bed, who
claimed te have been there all night, was
found with wet, muddy stockings en. The
night was wet and the ground outside soft.
Convicted and executed. One of Kaul
bach's illustrations of Goethe's Beinekc
Fuchs shows us the fox murdering the
hare. It is a solitary place, a field and close
by a shrine with its cress. But curious
ly enough, the artist has put eyes into
every head of the full wheat, which bends
iu the breeze, and every flower at hand is
made in likeness of a dim, human face,
which beholds the deed with horror. The
fact thus symbolized is that nature, in all
its attributes of weight, size color and
condition is, after all, the head detective
of crime, and every secret murder leaves
its mark behind it, which, rightly inter
preted of men, metes out detection and
punishment te the criminal. "Murder
will out," because, in most subtle ways,
the circumstance of murder being accu
rate, when wisely interpreted, confess and
denote with unerring finger, and "dead
men de tell tales," with a hundred
tongues. That the guilty sometimes
evade detection docs net prove the con
trary. Perhaps the old story of the mur
derer, Eugene Aram, whose horrors have
passed into English literature, assisted by
the genius of Heed's shadowy poem of that
name, best illustrates what has been
said of the curiosities of circumstantial
evidence in criminal causes. Aram was
born at Ramsgill, Yorkshire, 1704, and,
though the son of a gardener, was of an
cient British family and brilliant genius.
With scant education in youth, and serv
ing for a time as book-keeper in Londen,
yet he managed te make such progress in
learning, especially in mathematics, that
he was invited back as schoolmaster te his
native village, and there married. His
wife seems te have been a woman of easy
virtue, and te have made his home un
happy. But he devoted himself te the
study of the classics Hebrew, Chaldee
and Arabic and became se much of a
philologist as te bestow much labor in com
paring these languages with the ancient
Celtic. While engaged apparently in such
honorable undertakings, lie found time,
Feb. 8, 1744, with the help of a confeder
ate, Richard Houseman, te murder one
Daniel Clark, a shoemaker, and conceal
his body. His motive, as Aram alleged
after his trial, was revenge en his wife's
paramour, but it was in evidence that he
get from his crime the whole of Clark's
wife's dowry, te the amount of 160.
In fact, Aram leeks, when viewed in the
most candid light, te have been one of
these hypocritical and cold-blooded vil
lians of ability who sometimes appear te
disgrace humanity. Fourteen years after
the murder, a peasant, digging stones for
a lime kiln in the neighborhood, found a
human skeleton two feet below ground,
with the frame se well kept together as te
enable it te be seen that the body had been
bent and buried doubled. As Clark had
never been a seen alive since 1744, and as
Aram's wife had formerly thrown out
dark hints that he had been murdered,
public suspicion was aroused, aud an in
quest was held upon the bones. At this
inquest she was summoned, and testified
that she thought Clark was murdered by
Aram and Houseman. When brought
before the coroner, Houseman was in great
confusion, trembled, changed color, and
faltered in speech under examination.
The coroner desired him te take up one
of the bones before him, thinking te see
what further results would fellow. Taking
up one of the bones, he said: "This is
no mere Dan Clark's bone than it is
mine. " These words were se pronounced
as te convince these present, net that
Houseman believed Clark was alive, but
that he knew very well where his bones
lay. (If the reader will read Houseman's
words aloud, with a strong emphasis en
the word this, he will see a little what they
might be made te mean.) After some
evasions, he finally broke down and con
fessed that Aram and he had murdered
Clark, and though these were net his
bones, they might be found where they
were buried, at dead of night, in St.
Rebert's cave, near where the ether bones
were found, adding that Clark's head lay
te the right in the turn at the en
trance te the cave. Upen search, a skele
ten was found exactly as described. Aram
himself was arrested while acting as usher
of a school at Lynn in Norfolk. Upen
trial, Houseman was used as king's wit
ness. Aram defended himself in a written
speech full of fact and antiquarian lore, in
which, with a skill beyond most lawyers,
he probed into the weak points of the cir
cumstantial evidence against him, urging
the great uncertainty of its being Clark's
body, since St. Rebert's cave had been a
place of hermits, who were likely, accord
ing te their custom, had buried there. He
was convicted and afterwards confessed
his crime. Failing in an attempt at
suicide with a razor, he was nursed back
te life sufficiently te be hanged and his
body sent te ret in chains at Knaresbor Knaresber Knaresbor
eugh, near the scene of his crime. Se
perished one of the most learned criminals
of the world.
Crime comes and sometimes may strike
very close te anyone of us. It is, above all,
necessary that punishment also should he
made swift and sure. Thisrcsultisreachcd
by the careful and scientific study of evi
dence, especially en its circumstantial
side. Upen a wide view of the history of
crime in this world, it may be safely said
that punishment, though slew as sure, and
of justice, what the old Greeks said of
Ged, that he comes with leaden feet, but
strikes with an iron hand.
It happens very curiously that, just at
present, English law circles are greatly ex
ercised ever a pamphlet discussion be
tween Lord Chief Justice Cockburn and
Mr. Tayler, author of a standard treatise
en the law of evidence, upon a novel deci
sion of his lordship, by which, in a late
murder trial in Louden, a bit of circum
stantial evidence was excluded en grounds
that attack all legal precedents. His lord
ship, who is known te have both the ordi
nary virtues and vices of a beef-eating,
" by .jingo" Englishman in excess, seems
te have lest both his temper and his case
before the bar of the legal profession. At
least, such is the opinion of American law
yers who have read the pamphlets of both
disputants, just in hand. Bosten Herald.
