I have been asked to add a comment upon the subject of presumptions, comprehensively dealt with in a recent article in this review. My discussion will be summary and selective, and will be devoted to certain practical questions suggested by a late decision of the Supreme Court of the United States, and by some recent cases in the Supreme Court of Washington. These questions relate to the manner in which the trial judge shall deal in his instructions with such presumptions as may have arisen from the evidence in the case.
