signed to Judge Archbald the still bunt, to

Comegys the bar, to friend Beamish the

the IWing around the circle, and they nave
given t" me tne only icientific subject . To
tie frank with yon I will any that I ap
pointed the committee. Something has
bet n said about the law and very pro:' irly,
t e nil Know what the law is- a ruls of
human action. Tbe old principsl stands as
pure justice matured w ith the wisdom of
the age. a statute is no more law than
any other written document nntii it is
muted with the principle nnd experience
nnd becomes part of the wisdom of the
people, and in Hint senso it ii true. The
voice of the people Is the voice of God. it
is no more true that the Mchtinley bill is
law than that the NTileon bill will become
law. A statute Is no law, The gentleman
With Whom I lead taw said, if yen matter

dew lawyer nnd the objective lawver, nnd
we have the man that cannot be
taken unawares, and ho on. The

that I Know of In tuo state. We will all
have to taken little criticism to reach tbe
lugiiost standard that I spoije or nt ths
