ut there is another pe:~i2iarity ol
the judiciary noticcable in ;ur State,
especially i.i the upper p..rr.on, and
that is the manner in which civi
business has been almost persis
tealy let alone. Th .r.ff:rers by
this pJ1:eeiou ri 'f are widlows. orph:is
and wards who have no voice at the
ballot box. They, whom the law
ought to protect, are the victims of
th inacticity (we put it aiidly) of
our Judges. Ier it may be r'nr:rk
ed by some that the Bar have betn at
ftult. To a cerian extt-nt is
true-yet i-. our Ja.a,.s wer, JuPS,
tle disposit1ion on the part of the I;ai
to retard business could very easily Le
overawed. 'Ihe ic stitutin says that
justice shall be 'administercd witiou1
unnecessary delay," and it is the duit
of the JudeCs so to ad:miniSter justice.
Failing in this duty, they have utter'
disregardud the pruvi:ion of the Con
stitution which guarantees this riglH
to the citizen. Two methods are ex
ereised by the:n in delaying the regiiu
lar course of business-the first is n141
to call the dokets and the second i;
not to render a decision within th
tilll prt;seribcd by law after the hear
ing of the cause. By the secon<
method the statute is broken and b5
' buth the judicial outh is disreg-ard,d
iPub!ic officials are safe fromt th(

right well pleased to he so, for notwith
