Tho statement made by the morn
ing paper that the United States
Court will bo shy one clerk on ac
count of the fact that Congress fail
ed to make, an appropriation for a
salary of a clerk for tho second Judge
Is only partially correct. It Is true
that there will not bo a second clerk,
but It was not Intended that there
should bo, for the reason that, al
though there are to bo two Judges,
there will bo only one court. Tho
new law provides that only one
Judgo shall Bit at a time. So when
one Judge Is on tho bench, tho other
can bo ongaged in other work. Con
sequently no extra clerk Is needed.
