are shaped by hand. According to oualltr.

to the tune of 300 gross a day. One em-
ploye will ehspe as msny aa 4,000 of the
raw balls la a slnsl. worktn. dsv.
The newly pressed balls are then sorted
and allowed to dry out for a period of from
three to four weeks, when their weight Is
reduced to perhaps five ounces. Something
like 200 of these twine-bound leather bslls
can be found In the blna at all times.
In the meantime the skin covers for the
balls have been seasoned and dressed on
the Sour bt'low and, as a lsst stags In the
process, rubbed bark and forth against aa
upright blade, to take out all kinks la the
skins and also whiten them. The covers
are cut from the sklna by hand and sewn
around the balls by women. Each woman
Is expected to finish fifteen doien balls
dally. From every skin from fifteen to
thirty pairs of covers are obtained.
All in alt, it takes about six weeks to
turn cut a base ball, and the prices of the
product will vary from 8 cents to $1.25. The
largest sales are ot the 5-cent balls.
About twenty-eight varieties of balls are
now turned out. Within the last five years
the base ball trade In Cincinnati Is said to
have exactly quadrupled Itself.
In addition to base balls the local fac
tories turn out a considerable number ot
foot bslls. The skins for these are cut ac
cording to pattern and aewn by machine.
The stuffing and lacing Is the work of girls.
Bach ball passes through seven pairs of
hands In the course of msnufacture, while
the boxing gloves, also a Cincinnati product,
psss through about forty. An average ot
150 pairs of gloves Is the dally output.
Some 85,000 bats are made In Cincinnati
every year. All but the cheapest graae,
which Is of poplar, are cut from ash tim
ber, of varying sorts.

not entitle cestui que trust merely as such
and for that reason alone to a preference
over general creditors of an Insolvent trus-
2. In order to obtain a preference, cestui
que trust must show that the estate, out
of which he claims such preference, has
heen Increased to some extent by the mis
appropriation of the trust property; and
he Is entitled to a preference to the extent
of such Increase only.
8. Where a trustee mingles trust moneys
with his own funds, cestui que trust. Is en
titled to a charge upon the whole, and so
long as any portion of the mass into which
the trust fund has entered remains In any
form. It Is subject to such charge and may
be followed and claimed.
4. The burden Is upon Cestui que trust to
show that the trust money did In fact In
crease the estate out of which he seeks a
preference or Is represented there In some
form. But it seems that where such
money has gone Into the general estate of
a trustee who afterward becomes Insolvent
there Is a presumption that it remains
therein at his Insolvency and the court
will not say that It cannot be traced or
has wholly disappeared - where the con
trary may fairly be Inferred.
5. It is presumed mat moneys arawn out
of a fund wherein the trustee has Jingled
his own money and that of cestui que
trust are his own, and so long as any por
tion of the fund so constituted remains it
mav be followed and the charge of cestui
que trust thereon may be asserted.

which, without such regulations, would

1. The right of the courts to determine
all Judicial questions, whenever or how
ever they may. arise, Is given by the con
stitution In explicit terms and Is Indis
putable. 2. But equally clear and Incontestable Is
the right of the executive officers named
In the constitution to exercise all powers
properly belonging to the executive de
partment. 3. Considering the matter theoretically
and leaving practical results and past ad
judications entirely out of view it would
seem that the farthest limit of Judicial
authority in mandamus proceedings against
officers of the executive department Is to
hear, and determine, to give Judgment, but
not to enforce It by coercive process.
4. The principle of exemption from man
damus is grounded upon a distinct consti
tutional Inhibition tOon., art. 2, sec. 1)
and does not at ail depend upon official
rank. Whether the writ of mandamus
should be granted or refused has been
made to depend In every case decided by
this court upon the character of the act ;n
question and not upon the office of the
5. The theory that the Judiciary In Issu
ing a mandamus to a member of the ex
ecutive branch of the government Is
thereby Indirectly and In violation of the
constitution exercising power properly be
longing to the executive department has
been repudiated by this court in a long
line of decisions.
6. The established doctrine In this state
is that when a law In positive terms en
Joins upon the governor or other officer of
the executive department a mere minis
terial duty, leaving him no choice or dis
cretion In regard to the matter no Judg
ment to exercise as-to whether he will or
will not act that writ of mandamus may
Issue, and Its Issuance Is an appropriate
exercise of Judicial power.
7. The doctrine of res judicata is that a
