pected of the lawyers.
Speaking of tho relation of the law
yer to the public, tho client, tho
brother lawyer and the judiciary, the
Judge said that the dignity of the pro
fession Is and must, bo maintained by
the dignity of the lawyer himself,-that
there 1b no profession of which the
1 world asks so much or which the
world has and does so undeservedly
criticize, or to which so many and so
great confidences are given as to that

That the lawyer was In duty bound
to the public, to his client, to his
brother lawyer and to tho judiciary
to do all in his power t to prevent the

of law by a shyster or one who was
without moral principle.

periodical, or in any other way, the
merits and ability of oneself as a law
yer, but that they should be left to the
public to decide for Itself.
