A public domain book is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. On account of the report and testimony which have been given In Court about the evil-intentioned savages, the Court decreed that the officers of the militia shall give orders that there be made a general inspection of all houses to see if everybody has arms in condition and the necessary ammunition for defence, if occasion arises, and that orders be given to those, who have neither, to provide themselves therewith without any excuse, because, to all appearances, there are in the neighborhood of the village nations who are holding hostile talks and are very evilly disposed, according to the report of some other savages. fr Saucier porteur D'un de Ses Billet a demender a la Cour COURT RECORD, SEPTEMBER, 1780 67 the Court that the defendant prove that which he accuses him of having done. et Le Demendeur a perdre La moitié de Ce quil demande pour La monture du fusil.

He further said that it is true that before the quarrel, which the said Dubois had had with the plaintiff, the former was in good health and that after that time he went to bed and never got up again and every one knew that. 3 As far as is known, this was the first jury trial in Illinois or the Northwest, certainly the first recorded one. Prenouvaux, Defendant The plaintiff sues the defendant on account of a difficulty betv^een them in regard to an exchange of a gim barrel, which he changed with the defendant in consideration of ûve livres in peltries to boot for the barrel and fifteen livres for making a stock for it; but since the defendant refused to pay him the five livres to which he agreed for the exchange, he had returned his gun barrel and demands that the defendant pay him for the stock, which he had made for the barrel, because he is not able to use it on another.

In the fall of 1905, the trustees of the Illinois State Historical Library appointed an advisory commission to formulate a plan for the future publications of the Library.

The system of trial by jury was not introduced by the British government. The defendant says that he agreed to give the plaintiff only one ecu to boot. The Court being still assembled received the oath of the twelve jurors, who were named in accordance with the order of the Court of the 14th of the present month, to judge the case between Brisson and Angers.

On the recommendation of this commission it was determined that the Illinois Historical Collections should be continued and the volumes numbered consecutively, but also that series should be formed of the vdumes of the Collections devoted to the same historical period, such as the French, the British, the Virginia, etc. Saucier to tell him what the latter had deposed in the Court on his accoimt. Sauder made oath on the Holy Gospels of Almighty God and said that he had been summoned by M. Lonval and that, when he was at the house of the said Dubois, the latter told him that M.

Since both parties offered to take oath and they had no wit- nesses, the Court dismissed them, ordering each to pay half the costs and the plaintiff to lose half of what he demands for the gun stock. And they now demanded that the declara- tions, which were made, be read to them, and this was immediately done. In this edict Wilkins ga^e tht court of judicature, established by him in 1768, jurisdiction in criminal matters, but he said that the people were not sufficiently familiar with English law to permit trials by jurv. Public domain books belong to the public and we are merely their custodians. The present volume is the first which has been published under this new plan and, as its tide shows, it is the first volume of the Virginia series. Alarie appeared on summons and, after having made oath, proved that he was not in Cahokia when the accident happened to Jean Racette. 30 ILLINOIS HISTORICAL COLLECTIONS vroit pas Etre Condanné a payer Cette Somme de trois Cent Livres, vue que led** Racette quoi que Laccident soit arrivé ches Luy Est tout a fait Etranger Et que Dans pareille Cas il Devoit Dépêcher quelqu'un pour avoyer chercher un chirugien pour Soulage un pauva malheureux, Sans être obligé D'en payer Les fraix. Brisson had been at his house and had struck him, had broken his gun on him and given him a kick in the side and that he had spit blood on account of the blow.

After a careful examination they decided that the affi- davit of Pierre Gatient made imder oath proves the contrary of the accusation of Dubois himself which was made to others also; ^ and since there is no other proof to the contrary, they return this verdict: "We the undersigned jurors, in virtue of the order given us by the Court to decide the cause of Brisson and Angers, have not found any proof sufficient to condemn the said Brisson on any count whatsoever; and recommend that the Court con- demn whomever it judges proper to pay the costs etc." ' At Cahokia, September 21, 1780. Tha use of trial by jury in the courts of the county of Illinois was due to the influence of the Vix^ ginians.
