Imply thst perhaps the attorneys could

"Well. I concede that lawyers are net

test against the iT-ateotkiia that they are
respcasibl for all the timethst's lest by
the blind goddess In her work as judicial
welghmaater. It seems ts me that ths

they might be. nor as ambitious to savatbe

tbe MDler-rnltt case that' be wouMa't
tolerate any delay, but that Is tbe only
instance. I recall this ten or last whea
a Judge baa made anything like a real do
ssed for economy of time-' and that came
after the contest bad heea so long ba ccurt
that tbe preerat generation could scarcely
remember Its beginning, t think that at

ef Judges encouragement rather thsa dis
coaragement for this sort ef thing. They

when an attorney wishes a case passed and
they bare drifted Jnte tb habit of doing

Then, too, I msy set up the claim that
there is less demand for celerity of action
upon the part ef a lawyer teas there Is
up os a court. When a Iswyer sacrifice his

his own money, in eCert. When er Judge
allows delays be speada p ths people'

was already ea tbe Spanish frigate la ths

aaa of Ibe king of Franc agaiast th
revolution and f cucauli, ia order to be pre
pared for any emergency recorded hi
cplnioa that under French lav "son of th

I Ilea, however, did sot car to stay to

kil bad enough ef attempting te covers

self with msklrg out tb report . te the
Spanish court which led ta th cabinet
council ea tb question ef abaadpnlng
Louisiana er suppressing th rebellion.
. After nioa'a bants h meet, tbs people in
th Boarket place of New Orleans cheered
themselves hoars for France and Louis th
eil-Beloved, but th
atom, after tbs council had sdoptfd r "Jus

proceeded te form tbeir plans aad to draw

It is something more tbaa a coincidence
that Just at this time the British General
Cage, stationed at Boston, began to call
