present exchange does not hand.e oil

One of the members of the new body
said this morning that many brokers

Attorney General Lindsay
In the Case,
The attitude taken by Attornoy-
Oeneial Lindsay In connection with
the decision of City and County At'
tomey Cathcart to rcfuBO to continue
criminal proseiutloiiB In the Circuit
Couit, is sustained by Governor
In a statement made this morning
Governor l-'roar doclarcd that tho du
ties of tho city und county attorney
were plainly prescribed by Inw and
that in tho event of a city and coun
ty attorney falling to perform the
duties given to him by statute thcto
was a penalty In his removal from
offlro for malfeasance.
The Governor declared that there
would be nothing, theoretically, to
prevent nil of tho county attorneys
from fDlIovving tho steps of Cathcart,
refusing to handle criminal prosecu
tions In the Circuit Courts.
Attorney Oenornl Lindsay was
busy this morning In looking over
tho criminal calendar In Judgo Coop,
er's department ol the Circuit Court
and he stated that he would take
over the jurisdiction in the prosecu
tions, for the tlmo being at least.
There is a legal doubt as to wheth
er original Impeachment proceedings
could be .Instituted In tho Supremo
Court or only brought In the highest
tribunal after a hearing before the
Hoard of Supervisors.
Thcio are no Indications that
Cathcart will recede from the stand
ho has taken, and any action that
may bn taken' against him rests In
tho hands of Lindsay.
