usual good judgment has failed him
in this instance.
As an ethical proposition, it may
excite some comment that the gov
ernor has chosen for the chief justice

two years beyond the fortieth mile

have been of slight consequence, how

the gentleman so well 'and had not
enjoyed such superior opportunities to
measure his capacity and fitness for

jecture that his associates on the
bench can fail to find him companion
