September 39 the superior court herey an extremely interesting CK, Ont, September 29 uvth'o Birohall case has steadily risen until now it exceeds anything ever known in a similar case in tbe history of Canadian crimi- nal 3urisprudence The prisoner was in bis place early At last the strain is telling upon him It is evident that he did not sleep well lost night, but he shows nothing like fear, simply nervousness and a look of apprehension of a man who feels that great events for him are happening, and that the time when it will ba known v. hat the future has in store for him is fast approaching The jury looks wondeifully fresh and well kept, considering tlie time they have been con- fined A remarkable fact in connection with "the trial is.tbat in addition to the regular force of newspaper men, there is in attendance a large staff of stenographers employed by one of -the cable companies, which bos arranged to cend by cable a verbatim report of Blackstock's Speech, the "judge's charge and the long report of Osier's address as well Preliminary to the speeches this morning, some evidence was taken, but it was not of particular interest Testimony foe the defense has closed, and addresses of counsel were at onco entered upon During his counsel's the prisoner looked calmly and care- fully to all aud said BLACKBTOCK'S ARGUMENT IVtr Blackstock, the prisoner's counsel, evi dcntly labored under great excitement, and looked as if he bad spent many hours last night in preparing his speech for today He Megan Jus Address at 9 53 o clock Many of tho most enlightened countries, bo said, had abolished capital punishment, but while they lixedundera government that upheld it.it was their duty to obey trie statutes of the coun try But they would not send a man to the gallon s without the most convincing evidence, and certainly not upon tho evidence which had been sprung upon them by the crown The slimy net of tbe press had prejudiced the pub- lic mind, but his lordship had already told the that they must discharge their minds of this false impression, and pass upon the case according to the evidence THE PBBSS CENSURED Some detective work bad been done and done well, but his candid opinion waa that the only honest work oE that sort had been done by the newspapers, but while he conceded the press all its rights in the premises he con tended tliat it hid no right to comment upon the evidence and try the case in the public mind before it had been given to the jury He pointed out the great preparations made lor this case by the crown and the enormous ex- pense incurred to secure conviction, as con trasted with the position of the defense For weeks and months the lawvers for Birchall had worked and labored to secure a fair trial, without money, to the credit of the bar, be it said They appealed to tne jury to acquit the prisoner and set tbe mob aud tbe press at defiance He asked the jury not to judge his client for Ins honesty, for if they did he would have to pass him to their censure Tho fact was that lie did bring out JJelley and Ben-veil under false statements, rat the prisoner was not on trial for those-tnis- statementg, nor for the statements he made to several of the crown's witnesses Many of ;bese witnesses, Mr Blackstock said, appeared ;o be respectable people, and he did not intend x> impugn their honesty, but isbed todraw ;heir attention to the frailtyof human memory He then proceeded with his analysis of the testimony and developed his theory of defense, that it was a catfe of mistaken identity on the part of those witnesses who had testified to seeing Benwell and Birchall at Eastwood and afterwards Birchall alone on tbe day of Ben- ell's disappearance Blackstock's peroration waa a masterpiece, closing at just 3 o'clock THE PROSECUTOR'S ARGUMENT The court then adjourned for twenty rain utes for lunch Mr Osier for the crown, opened his address at 3 25 o'clock The fact of the case was that in February last a young man came to this country full of life and hope and a few days later his dead body was found in a swamp in tins county The first thing to inquire into waa the relationship existing be- tween tbe prisoner and the deceased and see what that furnished It absurd that no man should be convicted on circumstantial evidence, because in tbat view a designing, deep-plotting criminal would never be con- victed, and the worst criminal of the land would go unpunished The prisoner, by the name of Lord Somerset, in "Woodstock, without visible means of suoport and in the snring of 1889 he leaves for the old country Early this year he opened negotiations with Pelley and Benwell to come to this country and take an interest in his farm in Ontario, also share in the profits of his horses Knowing the facts, as they did know, was the object of writing tbat letter to Colonel Beuwell? The object was to get possession of that But it was well known that as soon as deceased reached this country, Birchall's deception would become apparent Other correspondence which followed, showed that the prisoner was preparing Benwell's father to receive reports from him, instead of from his son On boarc tbe ship Pelley and Benwell became antagon ized Bat Birchall able to reconcile Pelley while no doubt he had given both young men the same glowing description of the farm Pelley had already been taken in Birchall had got his but it was not so with Benwell Then take the letter of Birchall to Colonel Benwell three days after the son was dead Fancy Benwell writing by the same mail to his father that ho had been deceived, tha there was no farm. But Birchall knew where was Benwell, tha he was lying cold and stiff in swamp, and his right hand would never again address letters to Ins father The solution o this waa that it was the only way to get pos sion of the He wrote that he had intro- duced his son to many friends and had showi him books, and where are these books ani where are tbe friends he introduced him to' One of these friends in the witness box would "set the prisoner free But there was not i particle of truth in his letter of the 20th. o February. Then look how skillfully Birchal wrote that letter to have tbe money to J" B Bixchall and F C Benwell but to the firm "Birchall Benwell Therefore, BirchaJl could draw the money without Benwell being on hand, no further identification was necessary. If this state of things didn't exist, then Blackstock's argument would be very conclu sive Under the circumstances, the burden is upon the prisoner to show where henrason the 17th of February The prisoner had a perfec right to make a statement, at the close of the evidence, and tell the jury anything he chose and the law prevented cross-examining him But, no .look at his awful silence on thi point why don't he speak about this terribl blank? Tbe contention of the crown is that the pris- oner killed Benwell m the swamp; in fact, Tery near where the body was found. He miaht have had some one ter hel him or two men might have earned tbe bod; in there. Yet the is actually guilty case was set for trial but owing to tha severe sickness of Judge postponed to January It is that of TV E Hogne, a police ofccerwhoshotanltaiedJuliusJpneB, a. negro, ont'iefctreethere The grand jnry rtturntda till of murder. tranger in the country Therefore, it was ecessary to destroy hisjidontity THE JUDGE'S CHAEGS The judge began his address at 7 38 o'clock jd in opening remarked tbat they wore now rawing to the close of a grave and important ise.
