A quesjr case is reported fro.m Sydney,
Australia. A mnn was convicted by a
lury of having tried to poison hiB wife
with arsenic. His lawyers obtained a
reconsideration of the sentence by a
commission appointed by the legisla
ture, consisting of two doctors and a
lawyer, which pronounced him inno
cent, the doctors voting down the law
rer, who thought him guilty. The man
was Eet free in consequence. Subse
quently ono of his lawyers, moved
by conscience, told another mem
ber of tho bar that tho man
had confessed his guilt to him at the
time of tho trial nnd tho mnttcr was
brought before the legislature. Law
yers and ' clients have been arrested
and aro to bo prosecuted for conspir
acy to defeat the ends of Justice. Com
munications between lawyer and client
