Extradition and Crime.
When the case of the Russian refu
gee, Jan Pouren, Is finally determined
it will be likely to stand as n prece
dent for the United States In future
cases. Russia claimed to ask in good
faith under an existing treaty for the
extradition of a man charged with
four crimes, one being murder. Pou
ren's friends insist that the killing
was committed aa part of a political
movement in which he was Involved
at the time.
If the Russian should be surrender
ed for trial for ono of the lighter of
fenses and the trial should take on the
color of political persecution this coun
try would have the right to protest.
An extradited prisoner should not be
tried for an offense other than that
for which be was surrendered without
his consent. If this ruio is applied in
the Pouren case the United States will
be committed to it as fundamental in
treaty obligations. England establish
ed it in 1870, and other nations have
gradually yielded the point.
