oprclmens of art ho had seon and studio 1 In
i Southern France. Tberu wero three speci
mens of n ork dune long befiiro tho pyramid

i upon stone, and tho drawings worn pro.
duced without shading by lino and dots, us
the blcrogl) pblc llguros wero. This oarly
art reached its height In the reign of Clous,
ono of the early French klngj. Air. Wllon
then enlarged upon tho theory that nothing
was lost In art, as no sound was lost, but
went ou continually.

It was to avoid any unfortunate re
sults in this dltectiou that hu olferu I a
motion that the Court do not proceed
In tho tilnl of the case, lie had con
sulted with a mnnbur of his associates
at tho bat in wIioju judgment ho h.ul
confidence, and thoy i-xpressed tliU
opinion. Tho netting was hold under
an act of Cougicss of 187 J, which gave
the Com t authority to proceed in this
manner, but had been lepualod by an
net of 1871), providing for tho
constitution of n second Circuit Court
whon llio business demanded it. .
Mr, Pnvls. who appeared for tho do
fctidnnt, prcsontcd his views to tliu
Court, coinciding In tho main points
with those of Mr. Mnttlngl).
Judge Montgomery said that couusol
on both Bides agreeing, tho motion in
the ease would Lie granted as n mutter
of couise, although tho Couit was not
so curtain ns the counsel on both sides.
Ho felt clear that it judgment of this
billing could not bo attacked collator
ally. Nobody would question tho
right of this couit to hold a term over
across tliu hall. It would therefore
npocnr that tho only question was as to
tho competence of tho jury. Tho
eligibility of tho jury could not bu at
tacked collaterally; it could bo dotto
by challenge. If tho jury was un
challenged ho could not seo why tho
judgment tns not conclusive.
Mr. Mnttingly called attention to tho
fact that tliu record In the nisu would
show that this ,Tudge,stttingnsn justlco
of tlio ciltninal term, was trying civil
cases with tho criminal jury under tho
Authority of that law.
Judge Montgomery stated thnt Ills
opinion was necessarily soniuwh.it
hnt-ty, ns ho had not had the knitter
brought to his attention beforo, but
this Court was or assumed to bo sitting
In control of n portion of tho calundur
presided over by a member of thu
Tho counsel in n nurnbor of cases
made n similar motion. Mr. Appleby,
who appealed for tho plaintiff in thu
cas,c of Larrubco vs. Slmjison & Guy,
suggested a similar course in n oaso
which was to come in, but Mr, Job
Barnard, who, with James V. E 1
words, npponrcd for tho plaintiff, said
that hu agreed with tho Court.
Mr. Annlebv then chnllonecd tho
jury, on tho ground that it was sum
moned to try criminal causes.
Tbo Court overruled tho challenge;
