THE MANDAMUS PROCEEDING.
Argued Before tho supreme Court
Yesterday Printed Brief
Wooley and the "Board."
The hearing of the mandamus proceed
ings, brought to compeltthe County Com
missioners to call a special election to
submit to the people of the county th
question of erecting a court house, came
up for hearing in the supreme court yes
terday. The supreme court recognizes the im
portance of the questions involved, and
ordered council to file printed briefs,
which will be douc in a few days.
The only defense made is that the res
pondents are willing to call the election
but want their own sweet time in which
to do it. This is practically confessing
judgment in favor of the relator and an
adminion of the whole case made against
the respondents, or rather against two of
them, for one of the respondents Hon
A. 15. Todd files his separate answer in
the case, in which he alleges the perfor
mance, on his part, of the duty sought to
be enforced, and proves by the record of
tho Commissioner's journal the correct
ness of his statement, in voting for the
submission of the question. The other
two Commissions file answer for the
"Board" with Mr. E. II. Wooley as their
attorney. Tug Herald is always pleased
to see that amiable barrister appear in his
professional capacity for suffering clients;
but iu this case a very grave question
arises as to whether this barrister has any
client. Tns law provides for a county
attorney in each county whose duty it is
to jrive council to the "Board," and the
only person who can lawfully appear for
the B.ard in this case is our genial Coun
ty Attorney Geriug, whose official duties
Barrister Wooley is now assuming. We
have examined the record of the last
session of the Commissioners and find that
no action was tvken by that body to re
tain extra council in this case.
TUij "Board must have held a session
at Wabash and there retained Barrister
Wool.'y to appear for them. Objection
might be made to the regularity of this
session' but The Herald is not tcchuical
We jsrc willing that the "Board may holJ
a session, once in a while on ajdry goods
box dong the Wabash, but we do insist
on justice, and rank injustice has been
done in this case in the selection of coun
cil for the "Board." It would be in ac
nordancc with the eternal fitness of things
for the "Hoard" in retaining council in
that j.-ii5P to recognize the claims "f Mike
Cavi T, or at least ;if Mike would con
sent) to associate him ith Wooley as
counsel for the "Board." But alas i the
"Board" has lost the opportunity of its
life; and the only thing that can be done
now n to allow the lone barrister a good
roursd fee and make him diyide with
