Judge and the Jury-box. Durifcg thai present, Assizes Mr. Justice Kennedy hats repeatedly asked the juries in the. Crown Court whether or not they couid hear the witnesses, and just before the Mer- thyr murder trial was adjourned on Wed- nesday evening, His Lordship expressed the hope that be- fore the next Assizes the arrangement of the jury-box in relation to the witness-box would be altered. "It is the worst arrangement I have seen for a very long time," his Lordship said, and then turning to Mr. B. Francis Wil- liams, K.C., asked whether in his experi- ence he had noticed any inconvenience. '.011, 1 have, my lord," said counsel, and the Judge added that it was most objection- able. in trying cases oi murder. The jury-box and the witness box should be closer together is the general opinion, and not r.. ;rT,v Lrvjnr the arrangement in the present Cardiff court. The press-box at any rate is very badly piaccd, for it not infrequently happens that when counsel is addressing the jury he is not only yards away from the reporters, but has his back completely turned upon them, with the result that very little that is said is audible to the Press.
