Excerpt from Errors in Criminal Proceedings in All States and Territories and Federal Courts Where Judgements Have Been Affirmed, Being the Errors in Criminal Proceedings, Which Were Held by the Appellate Courts of the States, and of the United States and Territories This is perhaps the first book of its kind, and therefore a few remarks in support of its existence may not be out of place. There is no intended duplication or padding. As nearly as possible the reasons in each case are given in the words of the court. These citations have been carefully compared with the reports, and their accuracy may be depended upon. In this way a great variety has been gained in the diction employed. The vocabulary of any man is limited, and he is apt to fall into the use of set words and phrases which detract from the piquancy derived from the work of many different minds, which contribute something more or less original, in contradistinction to the stereotyped expressions so unfortunately common when left to one individual. By collating opinions from the earliest times, arranging them substantially in the order of procedure in the courts, and carefully indexing them, it is hoped that this contribution may prove of great benefit to the Bench and to the Bar of the country. It will be observed that the states are in substantial accord in the mode of procedure followed in considering criminal cases on appeal and error. The rule is general that no conviction shall be set aside, except for the gravest errors involving positive prejudice to the accused, in a case where the proof is either meager or conflicting, and the defendant appears to have been deprived of a fair trial.
