This decision of' the minister was made known today and is influenced largely by census in England and America of the French methods now in vogue through the operation of which the present judge appears in the role of prosccu- ter. Barthou is much impressed bv this foreign comment and he intends to give the court the duty and priv- ilege of "The Interrogator" and give to the public prosecutor and the counsel for the defence the task of examining the accused and the wit- nesses. He would restrict the pre- j rogatives of the Judge to practice in j keeping with that of the courts of Anglo Saxon countries. It is unlikely, however, that an ef- fort will be made to adopt all me- th'ods of court proceedurc in all La- tin countries through which the ex- amining magistrate in an exhaustive preliminary investigation collects tes- timony often not strictly admissable under Anglo Saxon rules of evidence, upon which the state establishes its .case-against the accused. It is the belief of many foreign lawyers here that in civil cases which were tried before a jury the French system per- mitting the introduction of indirect evidence and even the opinion of-wit- nesses-frequently enables the judge to arrive at a conclusion that is cer- tainly more just than docs the prac- tice of similar courts in England and America.
