favors separate Institutes and ad'

IXXOCEXT KOT ITMSIIED.
Judge ArchbulJ, with Other Judges, Is of
the Opinion Tluit Few Men Suffer
Through Errors of the Criminal Law.
An Innocent man's conviction of crime
has furnished the plot for many a
novel, and the central scene of numer
ous dramas. ,That there have been
such incidents in real life Is admitted,
but there is a decided opinion that
cases of this kind have been nearly, it
not quite, as rare as white blackbirds.
A correspondent of the Pittsburg Dis
patch recently compiled quite a list of
such alleged convictions, together with
some vigorous comments on the sub
ject. The Dispatch has brought the
question to the attention of leading
legal authorities, and has received
opinions from such recognized lights as
ex-Chiof Justice Daniel Agnew, Judge
Robert W. Archbald, Judge John W.
Slmonton, Judge Thomas Ewing and a
number of others of prominence. They
are practically unanimous in saying
that there is but a very remote chance
for such a conviction as is dear to the
heart of the novelist and dramatist.
Possible but Not Probable,
Robert W. Archbald, one of the most
prominent of Pennsylvania's many not
ed judges, whose name has frequently
been mentioned In connection with the
supreme bench, writes to the Dispatch
"The probability of an innocent per.
son being convicted of any serious
crime, in my' Judgment, is very Bmall.
In some minor offenBes, such as assault
and battery, petty larceny and the like,
it may sometimes occur. I have known
also of a few cases, where the Juries
have confused moral delinqency with
crime, convicting the defendant be
cause he was morally wrong, or be
cause he had been guilty of some sharp
practice, even when he ought really to
have been acquitted. But the Judge
who presides rarely falls to correct the
mistakes of the jury in any such In.
stances, and, even If he does not do his
duty In this respect, the consequences
tire not in any event serious.
But In cases of any gravity I do not
believe In this day there is any great
danger of an Innocent man being con.
vlcted. The law In this state is such
that any man may testify in his own
behalf; so that circumstances, however
damaging, have the light of his testi
mony thrown upon them. In addition
to this previous good character always
plays an Important part in the ques
tion of a man's guilt, and may of Itself
raise a reasonable doubt in the minds
of a jury. Even If these safeguards
fail the case has still to pass the gaunt
let of the trial judge, -whose experience
as a rule Is sufficient to detect the
cause of Innocence. Speaking with re-
gara to tne courts or which I have ac
quaintance, I have known some inno
cent men convicted, but I have never
known of one whom the Judges thought
innocent being sentenced. One of the
most striking cases that I now recall In
the courts of this county was that of a
man charged with attempting to burn
a house. The evidence was wholly clr.
cumstantlnl, and there were some
pretty wide gaps In it, but the defend
ant wns convicted and sentenced. Quite
an effort was made on the score ot
previous good conduct to secure a new
trial first and afterward to get a miti
gation o the sentence, before which
even th private prosecuting attorney
conslde:,.bly wavered. I was myself,
however, fully assured of the defend
ant's guilt, and meted out to him th
appropriate punishment, and on the
way to the penitentiary he confessed
tne Whole crime. I have known nf
other similar cases where parties who
stoutly protested their innocence on the
witness stand broke down and con
fessed when brought to face the renlltn
of a conviction.
One Case In Point.
"It is supposed that casen nf ftlrmim-
stantlal evidence are those from which
the Innocent are the most in rinnimr
but the case of the gravest doubt ot
wnicn k nave any personal experience,
was one In which the evidence waB di
rect and not circumstantial, thedefend
ant charging that the witnesses who
testified to his guilt had conspired
against him. This was a case of at
tempted barn burning, and It must be
confessed that the principal witness.

all this and perhaps more that might
be said, my Judgment is that no inno-

chance of being convlo tpfl cf nnv DiirL

JAMES ANTHONY FROUDE.
A Biographical Study
For The Tribune.
James Anthony Forude, the celebrated
historian, was born in 1S18 and ended his
earthly career Oct. 18, I8U4. He was there
fore 7(i years old when he died a fair old
age for a man who had lived so laborious
a life as a man of letters. He studied at
Oxford university and took his degree In
1840. He had intended entering the Uni
versity of the Church of England, but
finding it Inconsistent with honesty, to
subscribe to a creed which he did not be
lieve he abandoned the idea of entering
the university. ,
t'nllke some men'oP his abilities he
soon found his sphere and became a lit
erary man. In 1847 he published "The
Shadows of tho Clouds," and two years
later, "The Nemesis of Faith." These
first efforts were sufficient to prove that
he was a writer of great power. Ha and
a younger brother, Richard Hurrel
Froude, were starting In life at the time
of the Oxford movement In which John
Henry Newman played so prominent a
part. Froude'B brother would have gone
with Newmun into the fold of Rome had
he lived. Two currents marked the
stream of that movement, one setting In
the direction of Rome and tho other In
the direction of rationalism or disbelief In
traditionalism as represented by the An
glicans and Roman Catholics churches.
Froude was among those who went out.
II II II
Soon afterwa8rd he came under the In
fluence of Carlyle and found In his writ
ings that help which he needed In his
then unsettled state of mind. .His liter
ary course is marked from beginning to
end by the early Impulses which led him
to abandon the University of the Church
of England. His "Life and Times of
Thomas Bucket," "Short Studies on
Great Subjects," "Essay on liunyan,"
"Essay on Luther," "Life and Letters f
Carlyle" and other works will ever stand
as monuments to his vast industry, learn
ing and power.
, But the work that will entitle him to
the proudest place among the reat his
torical writers of the world is his "His
tory of England from the Fall of Wolsny
to the Death of Elizabeth." In this as In
his other works, we see the same lofty
devotion to truth, wide grasp and com
prehension of great movements, the same
intensity of feeling and business Imagina
tion which are tho essentials of a groat
historian. 'Like Carlyle, whom he called
his master, he was not satisfied with hear
say or second-hand reports, but studied
the sources of history and searched Into
original documents of the widest range
in order to arrive at just conclusions.
One of the points iie'hns cleared up Is
the character of Henry VIII. He has not
endeavored to make a saint of him, but
he has shown him to be, for that age, a
great, brave and honorable man. Besides,
he has shown him to be a man who was
capable of learning the lessons taught by
the course of events. He, who was once a
devout adherent of the Roman Cathollu
church and the opponent of Luther, not
long after, came to see the corruptions of
the clergy, the rottonnoss of the monastic
system, and the grievances suffered by
the people, and so became the patron of
reform. This new view Is not sustained
by any ingenious process of reasoning,
but by a fair presentation of facts, as
they are presented in contemporary doc
uments. Henry ordered the bishops to
prepare a new version of the Bible In the
language of the people and also command
ed that the services of the church should
be conducted In the same language.
Much has been made lii Henry's disfavor
out of the execution of More, and Bishop
Fisher. But If we consider that More was
one of the most eminent men in the state,
while Fisher was one of the most prom
inent men In the church, and both of thorn
refused to take the oath of loyalty to
Henry as against the interdict put upon
him by the papal excommunication, the
matter appears In a very different light.
Henry was then engaged In a deadly
struggle with the papacy and to let these
men stand as the supporters of the as
sumptions of the papacy at such a time
was to endanger. If not to lose his throne.
Besides More and Fisher had plenty of
time to consider the mater and both per
sisted In their refusal to take the oath of
Let any one who Is desirous of knowing
the truth, take the trouble, or rather en
Joy the pleasure of reading the twelve
volumes of Froude's history and he will
find that the aim of the author Is to vin
dicate and not to pervert the truth of hjs
tory. He makes It clear that England at
that time was the battle ground between
the Papacy and the Reformation, and
that Henry VIII was led by the drift of
events to become the central figure In
the struggle, and Elizabeth after, him in
spite of herself. The efforts of the Pupacy
to cruBh the Reformation culminated In
the Spanish Armanda under Philip II of
Spain, and the destruction of that vast
fleot was the crisis In the great struggle
so fruitful in its results to the English
race and the world. .

The current number of the Courier
of Seneca Falls, N. Y., contains a para,
graph concerning iFsac Post that will
be of Interest to Scrantonlans. Mr. Post
is well known In this city, and has
many relatives here. About a year ago
he paid a visit to Scranton and wns the
guest of his nephew, E. P. Kingsbury.
The paragraph referred to reads, as fol
lows: "Isaac Fuller, the founder of the
Seneca County Courier, has returned
to Seneca Falls to live. He voluntarily
resigned his position in the public print
ing office at Washington after a service
there of twenty-five years and three
months. His reasons were that Mrs,
Fuller desired to spend the remainder
of her life In Seneca Falls, the scene of
their activities. Public Printer Bene
dict, in accepting the resignation, ex
pressed the highest appreciation of Mr.
Fuller's services, and there is no doubt
that he eould have remained as long as
he chose. Mr. and Mrs. Fuller came to
this place In 1837, having then been four
years married, so their golden anni
versary was passed more than two
years ago. Of the men then in busi
ness In Seneca Falls only two are now
living Charles L. Hosklns, who kept a
Btore where his son is now located, and
H. C. Silsby, who was Just commencing
his successful business career. Mr. and
Mrs. Fuller, however, remained here
until 18C9, and their acquaintanceship
has been kept fresh by frequent visits,
so that hosts of friends join in the cor
dial welcome which the Courier ex
tends." Hundredsof unredeemed watches. Great
