Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ...such as " change of venue," or the transference of the trial from one locality to another, if it is otherwise impossible to secure a fair verdict. But the statements already made are sufficient to show the great care taken to protect the rights of the accused as well as the rights of the community, and thus to secure impartiality and justice. The advantage which a powerful State naturally has in prosecuting one of its own subjects is the reason for throwing about an accused person all the safeguards necessary to prevent an innocent person from being condemned. A full knowledge of the law of procedure cannot be given in a brief review, and must be left to the professional lawyer. But its general spirit is a matter of interest to all, since it shows the important part which the State performs in the administration of justice, and thus in the protection of the rights of its citizens.
