WRITING THE KAMK.
Oue Cannot Always Identify His
Expert Say No Man Can Safely U
I poo the Wllnree Stnut! and
Swear to Hie Una
The general opinion is that it la an
easy matter to Identify a signature
and there are few people who would
not sny with positiveness that they
could identify their own tig-natures
under almost any conditions. A discus-
lion by some lawyers the other day
makes it uppenr that a jierson. eariuot
at all be sure of his signature be-
cause of the nicety to which the
forger hns brought bis art.
One of the lawyers said that no
man could safely go upon the witness
stand and swear that a signature
shown him was hi signature. He
claimed llint in the identification of a
signature a person was largely Influ-
enced in his decision by the quality
of the paper upon which the signa-
ture was .written and by what pre-
ceded or foMowed the signature. If
the name was written on a blank piece
of pnper like that in common use.
the luwyiy claimed that a witness
could not swear with any degree of
potUtiveneas that the signature was or
was not his own.
In support of his argument the
lawyer said that handwriting experts
claim that no person can write his
name twice exactly alike" and that
any litigation where signatures are in
dispute and two signatures ' appear
that are exactly alike the experts will
pronounce one of them a forgery. It
may be true that in general conform-
ation two signatures may be alike but
in saying that no two signatures were
ever made alike the experts mean .
that the loops of the letters and the
distances between them will not be
the same distinctions which can be
determined only by a system of close
measurements. In support of this
theory the experts take the case of a
farmer who is in the habit of going
from his house to his barn at about
the UBual time every morning. Tney
say that not once in 100000 times will
he walk in exactly the same tracks.
Another lawyer told of an expe-
rience he had in the trial of a case
In Tolland county 2S or 30 years ago.
A note was in contest and a question
.was raised as to the genuineness of the
signature. George P. Bissell was called
as a handwriting expert. He testified
that the signature on the note was a
genuine signature. For the purpose
of testing his ability as a handwriting
expert while on the witness stand
he was given a piece of paper and
asked to write bis name three times.
A blank space was left between the
signatures. Mr. Bissell did not know
for what purpose he was asked to
write his name and after the paper
had been handed to the lawyer who
examined him it was given by the
lawyer to an expert with the pen. The
expert wrote the name of Mr. Bissell
on the paper three times and after
this was done Mr. Bissell was recalled
to the witness stand and the paper
containing the six signatures was
handed him. He was asked to point
out the signatures that he had writ-
ten. Be endeavored to do so bnt not
one of the signatures he picked out
as having been written by himself was
his writing. The three he selected
were written by the pen expert.
Reference was made during the con-
versation to a trial which recently oc-
curred in Washington where a wili
was in contest. Several experts on
handwriting who testified at the trial
claimed that the will was in the hand-
writing of the testator. It was
proved however that the entire will
had been traeed. One of the relatives
of the deceased had found many of the
letters of the deceased. Words to put
into the will were taken from the dif-
ferent letters and by a chemical proc-
ess reproduced in the document which
made the will. John Sherman's name
was sijrned by one of the witnesses ot
the will and it was also proved that
the signature had been taken from a
signature which Mr. Sherman had
placed in an article in Gen. Grant's
"Memoirs of the War."
The conclusion which the lawyers
came to when the di.-eussiou ended
was that it is not such an e.;y matter
to identify sipnatures a many peiple
