By 6 Anne, incorporation of the repealed Local Government Act 1858' c. 7, s. 25, it is enacted that the acceptance by any member and its requirement through the medium of the Public of the House of Commons of any office of profit under the Health Act 1875 of the almost obsolete mode of voting by Crown shall vacate his seat, but he may be re-elected. The voting papers, the Borough Funds Act is a very bad Act latter part of this section, by construction with sect. 24, indeed. applies to old offices (Rogers on Elections, part ii., p. 9, 63), a new office being one created since the 25th Oct. 1705, the Mr. Kensit, in his opposition to the confirmation of the holding of which disqualifies for election to the House.

“In the early morning of the 29th of September he had left his benefit club, and was proceeding home when stopped by Murray, as he alleges, some distance befo he reached Frognal, where the alleged damage was committed.

He offered every explanation as to who he was, both to Murray and to the policeinspector, who declined to take the charge from the constable. Parrent was formally remanded from the next morning until the day following, the 30th, which was the Bench day. Meanwhile, he had sought the advice of his employer, who went to consult ais solicitor on Parrent's behalf. His solicitor was away, and his employer therefore said that he would ask the Bench to remand Parrent for a week. Upon the 30th Parrent's employer wrote a courteous letter to the Bench, assuring them that he had known Parrent many years, and thought there must be a mistake, and stating his solicitor, who would defend, was away, and offering to go bail for any reasonable amount if the Bench would remand the case. This they refused to do, and they refused also to hear Parrent's employer when he offered an explanation. The conviction was in three cases, in each of which Parrent was fined a pound and ordered to pay damages.

It was, to start with, a cunning manipulation of penalties, and, as the subsequent application to the magistrates proved, was clearly done with the intention of defeating any appeal. Application was made to manipulate these penalties so as to enable Parrent to clear his character. This application was refused.

“We pause here to ask, could any magistrates have been guilty of more flagrant injustice? What was Parrent to do? He had a thirty-five years' character swept away by this conviction. It was in this predicament he consulted us. Mr. Freke Palmer, we believe, had previously advised him that it was no good trying to press his appeal. There was no other way out of the difficulty but a prosecution of the man upon whose evidence, and upon whose evidence alone, he had been convicted. It was easy to foresee that the prosecution would be one fraught with great difficulties. Apart from the fact of the difficulty of obtaining a verdict upon the evidence, there was the Metropolitan Police Force to be fought, and the open hostility of the Bench to Parrent to be met. Our first step was to apply to the magistrates' clerk for a copy of the notes of evidencean application which was flatly refused. We then applied to the Press for copies of the reports of the proceedings, and from the editors of both Hampstead newspapers we received every courtesy and assistance. An application was then made to the magistrates for process either by warrant or summons, and the Chairman's answer to us was that they should decline both, because they had heard the case and believed the evidence of the constable. It was then pointed out to them that, if they would not grant a summons, there were means of compelling them to act. A summons was then granted, the Chairman informing us that we took it at our risk.

“ The summons having been granted, we then renewed our application to be supplied with a copy of the notes, which the Chairman refused, remarking that he did not see that they had anything to do with the case and that it rested with us to prove the charge.

Have we not, sir, even up to this point, justified the Common Serjeant's remarks ?

The summons came on for hearing. We do not wish to comment upon the conduct of the Bench during it, as our object is merely to give you facts. A very clear intimation was given in the early part of the case, however, that the magistrates would dismiss it. This was accordingly done.

“During the interval which preceded the return of the summons an inquiry was instituted by the Commissioner of Police into the case, with the result that Murray was not suspended. Who the persons were who gave information at that inquiry, we are, of course, unaware. It was held with closed doors.

“We now turn to the trial at the Old Bailey, and will commence by giving you rerbatim what the Recorder said in charging the grand jury.

" . There is also a case on the calendar of great difficulty. It is a charge of perjury against a police-constable. The bill presented upon such a charge must be supported either by the evidence of two persons or by the evidence of one person coupled with some circumstance.

I commend the case to your very careful consideration. It may be said that what we have

Second Sheet.

here is merely oath against oath, but then there is the evidence of the doctor unrebutted at the police-court, together with the fact of the enormous weight of the pillar-cap the constable swore he saw the prosecutor throw down. I might, perhaps, consider that this was bare corroboration, but you are to say, and, as I said before, you will, I hope, give the

case very careful consideration, as it is one of importance.'

“The grand jury, we presume, followed the directions of the recorder with the result mentioned in your article. Now before the jury the following facts were those principally relied upon by the prosecution and upon which doubtless the jury came to their conclusion.

(1.) That Parrent was upwards of a thousand yards from No. 34 Frognal at the time the constable swore he saw him do the act. “(2.) That Parrent's left arm was powerless when raised.

(3.) That the pillar-cap in question weighed 312 pounds and was securely cemented to the gate-post.

* (4.) That three pillar-caps were thrown down that same night at places in respect of which Parrent was not charged. That two of these three were thrown down after Parrent was safely under lock and key at the police station.

* These two latter facts were proved by witnesses for the defence. Inspector Nicholls denied upon oath that Parrent had been drinking. An independent witness swore that he was in contact with a freshly-cut wall shortly before taken into custody, and that the presence of brickdust relied upon by the defence might have been due to this circumstance.

“Finally, two policemen were called for the defence, one of whom saw Parrent through a house round a corner at a distance of 200 yards away entering Frognal, and the other was standing within 3 yards of Parrent as he entered Frognal, knew that the dispute in the original case was as to whether Parrent was ever there, and never said a word about it to his inspector until the perjury proceedings were in progress.

There was also a doctor who had attended Parrent for his injured arm eight years ago, and who examined him just before the hearing at Hampstead, who swore that he was convinced of Parrent's physical ability to remove this heavy pillar-cap because he had submitted him to two tests, one the raising of a window-sash (which, by the bye, is balanced with weights), and the other, the retention in his hand of a light bamboo stool when it was placed there.

“We fear we have trespassed too long upon your space. We wish to add no more but our thanks to you for your indulgence.

“We are, yours faithfully,

“ Solicitors for the Prosecution.”

[The following appeared in “Silk and Stuff" in the Pall Mall Guzette on Thursday.-En. L. T.]

Among the causes which contributed to the release of the constable Murray (recently sent to prison for perjury) was an incident of a dramatic nature. Shortly before Christmas, Parrant, the prosecutor in Murray's case, sued a man named Death in the Barnet County Court, before Sir Alfred Marten, for money lent, the hire of a horse, and goods sold. In crossexamination he admitted that he only brought the action after Death had put in a distress for the rent of stables. The terms of the written lease did not bear out the plaintiff's story. The defendant swore that the money in question had been paid to him on account of rent, and, after his evidence, the judge asked the plaintiff's solicitor what he proposed to do. Ths latter declined to cross-examine the defendant, and ultimately the judge, in a long judgment, disbelieving the plaintiff's story, found for the defendant. A barrister who was in court, hearing subsequently that Parrant had been Murray's prosecutor, made further inquiries, and wrote to the Home Office within two days. After the identity of the complainant in each case was established, the Home Office wrote to Sir Alfred Marten, who expressed a strong opinion on the matter, with the result that Murray was promptly released. It must be added that the Home Office has not yet thanked the energet c barrister for his service to justice."
