They were not creatures of the law,
bound like Prometheus to tha rocks of cus
tom and usage, and as such, compelled by
the best traditions of their profession to
conform with esiabllshed practise. Dur
ing tha first slxly years of the republic
politics was the chief field In which men
of superior capacity exploited their talenta.
The building of a republic, so far as It
applied tn the form and administration
or law differed only In degree from the
long established and proven laws of Kng
land and save for Its tentative head there
was little theoretical variance. The true
test came In adapting, them to the rest
lessness of an unsettled people, and In toe
chaotic social conditions there prevalent.
In this work the essentials were more often
found In the heroics of an O'Connor or a
('hosts than In tha prefundity of a Wilson,
Marshall or Madison.
With th exception of Daniel Webster,
the New England fontlgent and Abraham
Lincoln, who was in a class alone, there Is
no authentic evidence tiiat any of the early
backwoods lawyeia compared in erudition
or logical sequence or even In the more
commoD element of oratory with Cockran,

Mr. ijiiHckenbuph Is a democratic candi
date for speaker. He has been waging a
vlgojous campaign by letter, but Is not
willing to make ny predictions as to the
outcome, but In his refusal to discuss the
situation was an optimistic smile that In
dicated the candidate has high hopes of
winning. Mr. Quackenbush will be at a
disadvantage In the struggle for organiza
tion In that ho cannot be on the ground
early. He goes tonight to Kansas City to
try a lawsuit which cannot be postponed
and which will probably keep him busy un
til Saturday. Hence he will not reach Lin
coln before Saturday evening. This will
leave him but little time In which to prose
cute his campaign. Most of the members
will be on hand before ha doe and "medi
