C, Tells of Methods of Dealing With Evidence Hail' w huudieil lenders of the Ontario bar gatliered in Convention hall of the Osgoode Law scnool, Toronto, to hear E. F. D. .Johnson, K. C., elucidate a Hubject peculiarly his own-the art of He spoke from the crystalMzlng of his own experience, and confessed lliat on occasions, when much turned on the evidence of a witness, he had spent a daj or even two days in preparing for the examUioLion of the wilnesH oxrlusivo of everytiiinv. fU.e. Mr. .Johnson did not wish to be in ilie position of the s))eiikvr in the lioiise of commons of whom Disiai.' i had said: "He said a great many new things, and a great many true things, but unfortunately the new thlnCB were not true, and the true things were not new." "The art of cross-e.\aniination," said Mr. Johnson, "may he dissolved into well defined principals. It is important because it deals with the separation of truth from falsehood, and shows whether the witness is prompted by proper motives or by malice. Corroborate Your Client "Unless you corroborate your client by close examination the probability Is that it �Is strengthening the hands of your adversary. "The diffi(^ulties of cross-examination are many. Cross examination cannot be learned; there is no royal road to becoming a successful cross-examiner. Experience does a great deal; observation does more; knowledge of human nature perhaps does more than both combined." Mr. Johnson thought the art of cross-examination was intuitive just as music and painting is. A very extensive knowledge of human nature and of the methods of business and daily life were essential; Sonic of the ablest members of the bar could not cross-examine on the simplest point. Too Much Evidence "Many cases," said Mr. .Johnson "are lost by loo little cross-examination; more are lost by too much croBS-exaniiualion." Mr. Johnson warned his heavers from cross-examining at random- this produced the feeling that the examination was all abroad and Ineffective, Cross-examination on facts which couldn't be weakened was waste of time and cross-examination upon Irre-levent matter was to be avoided. "This is one of the most dangerous things you can do," said Mr. Johnston, "because the judge stops you at once and it weakens you with the witness and the jury naturally come.s to the conclusion that you have no case." Avoid Unimportant Things y.r. Johnston warned against cross-examining on dotills that have no importance, and against the assump'ion thai the witness was lelVing a ialao story. "Wineiy per cent fo those who go into the witness box are telling what they honestly believe to be the truth," declared Mr. Johnston. He urged ;igainst the distortion (pf frici.s. Nothing weighed more with the tribunal whether judge or jury. "Anotiier thing to avoid," said the siieaker, "is laying traps of witne.sses. lu thirty years of experience I have seen two traps go off." "Evidence is not (acts; evidence is merely a mental record of facts re corded in the witness box. Tho tri-bmuil find.'? facts on th':?se Imiiri'ssl.ins reached tlirough llie witness box. ' Principd|.9 of Art Some of the principal', of crossex-amination i.'\i(l down by .Mr. .lohnston aro as follows: 1. Ci'iitinuity and iKen;valion of tho\ij,i.t. 2. y�l^\^r let a uitaoss fiei awav Willi you and lead you from your liiH. of attack. 3. Don't begin cross-examination on any point unless you have good ground for gaining that point. 4. Always attack the witness in his weakest point first. 5. Keep out of the unknown Held; the unknown field is full of pitfalls. (I. Never attack a man's character unless you have the record. 7. Don't ask a man if he has any feeling of animosity towards either of the litigants. 8. Stop when yo.u are through-a thing that's seldom done. Josh Billings said of tho clergyman;, "It you can't strike oil In twenty minutes on a hot Sunday, you either have a bad auger or you are boring in the wrong place." THI] UNIVERSITY SITUATION W. C. Ives Makes a .Suggestion to Allay North vs. South Feeling The following letter has been given the Herald for publication by W. C. Ives : "I believe it is unfortunately the fact that a feeling exists between the people of the Northern and the people of the Southern part of the Prov-'incc inimical to the interests of the Province at large and I also think it must be admitted that this feeling was largely fannetl to a considerable warmth bv the selection of .Strath-cona as the site tor the Provincial University instead of Calgarv. Some criticism has also been offered in reference to the amount of the puichase price of the V'niversUy site at Strathcona, but the Government has defended itself on the ground that this site could to-day be sold at a very cons'idcrahic advance! over its cost. It has been suggested to me, and the suggestion appeals to me so strongly that I hasten to give it publicity over my own name, that if it is a fact that the present site has largely increased in value and could be sold at such increased valuation, it would be a very wise as well as a politic move on the part of the government to sell the site at Strathcona and join with the publis spirited citizens of Calgary in establishing the Provincial University at the latter city. I believe the people at large in the Province would approve such a move and it would have the elTect of meeting the convenience of the greater number of those who would make use of such an institution as well as assisting in removing the present North versus South feeling that is .so detrimental to the harmonious progress of the Province. A SWIFT WOOING Seattle Engineer Takes Work in a Paris, Ont., Factory to Find a Wife SAY TARIFF REFORMERS ARE SCANDALOUS In a letter just received by Hugh B. GUmour, of Victoria, B. C, from his friend and former leader Joseph .Martin, member for St. Pancras East, Vfr. Martin states that as soon as the imperial hous^ rises he is returning to British Columbia for an e.^ctended visit with old associates. Brantford, Ont., April Uti.-The Penman Company, the big woollen manufacturers at Paris, are minus one of their new English girls, and thereby hangs a romance. One day last week a man, apparently twenty-five years old, secured employment at the mills. Looking over the factory girls, of whom there are about a thousand, he singled one out, asked her address, called on her on Friday night and married her on Saturday afternoon. The couple left that evening for their new home in Seattle, Wash., where the young man, who gives his name as George West, is said to be a civil engineer. The girl was Miss McMillan, who came out from England only three weeks ago. The groom, who secured employment merely to pick out a wife, refunded to the Penman Company |60, the amount of the passage money which had been advanced to bring the girl to this country. London, April 2&.-The Chronicle says: The scandalous lengths to which the Tariff Refordiers are prepared to go in their campaign against the people's food Is shown by the sensational disclosures Which we publish today. Overtures have been made to Derbyshire labor M. P.'s that they should sacrifice their principles, and thus split the Progressive forces in Derby, in the hope that a Tariff Reform candidate might capture the seat now held by the Liberals. The reward for this proposed shameful betrayal of the people's cause was that the labor candidates should not be opposed by conservative candidates in the county divisions of Derbyshire. It is almost needless to say thait this otter lias been treated with the contempt it deserved. The details of the pioposed transaction are given in the correspondence wiiioh we publish below. . It may be recalled that at the last election Derby returned Sir T. Roe, 'Liberal, and J. H. Thomas, labor, with iO.M'A and 10,189 votes respectively as against about 8,000 votes oast for the Tariff Reformers. AN AWFUL MURDER NEAR HAMILTON, ONT. Hamilton, Ont., April 28.-Investigation by tile police has resulted in the discovery of a number of things whic:h seem to make it clear that Eli Benton, found dead at the rear of a barn on his farm near Stoney Creek Tuesday, was done to death In the most brutal manner. The old man had been struck a dozen blows apparently with an axe. There is evidence that the murder was not committed inside the barn. The fact that the old man's hat, which, lay near the body, had three holes in It, is regarded as significant that he put up a light before succumbing to his assailant's blow's. how iialli:y's c()mi:t will ai�i^i:ak to the naked eye Rev C. \V. White of London, admitting that it is Impertinent to enquire the reason, remarks how unfortunate it is that Kitchener did not visit Canada. ;
