time I was there. I lingered for the
purpose of getting her to consent 'o
something that would look towards
reconciliation, but I went away without
much hope. I do not remember

She says she told me about the incident
of leaving; I do not remember It.

Afterwards I went to Mrs.
Damon and did all I could to get her
to become reconciled, and I further
told Dr. Miner I would have nothing
to do with his case at that time, and
not until it was found that reconciliation
could not be effected did l agree
tn nrt for him. not until it seemeu
nothing could be done. It was through
my ctTorts that Dr. Miner wrote this
letter, and the only thing I said in th-:
nrcspnee of Mrs.Miner. and I say It
on my own responsibility as a human
tiolne to Cod Almighty, was to get ner
to rot urn to her husband and without
getting anything out of her in regard
to the case.
By the Court:
Q. You had not been employed by
the doctor? " '
Mr. Magoon: No. ,1 absolutely refused
to have anything to do with
the case at that time.
The Court's Findings.
nv th Court: The court thinks It is
always commendable In any citizen to
try and promote domestic peace and
happiness, and to prevent tlomesuc
discord and friction. An attorney who
.0es that occupies an enviable position.
He is to be commended for it
like any other citizen. But, having
once assumed that high position ne
can very well afford thereauer to deny
himsclf the emoluments which a retainer
in a particular case may bring
I am satisfied from the frank and
candid statements of Mrs. Miner,
which are exceedingly to her credit
that Mr. Magoon was not inspired 'jy
any improper motives in making this
visit, but. on the contrary, as stated oy
Mrs. Miner, his family and hers hal
for a long period of years, been ;m
terms of social intimacy, the defendant
having been Mr. Magoon's family
physician. Inspired by a high regara
for both parties, and moved by generous
nnd noble impulses, Mr. Magoon
sought to bring this unhappy couilo
together. While th s is true, I yet be
licve an attorney who essays to make
peace as between such a separated
cminlo nlaces himself in such a po
sitlon as to render it highly improper
for him to accept a retainer from
either of the parties thereafter. A
woman occupying the position this
plaintiff occupied at the. time of the
visit to her by Mr. Magoon emuar
rassed, unstrung, nervous, in a hotel
away from her home, and not knowing
what her fate would be was In a
position where her emotions might lie
easily aroused and played upon, and
In a position where she would gtvo
anyone whom she thought might
her champion her full and unre
If this matter had been brought to
the attention of the court at an earlier
stage of the proceedings not because
It feels (because It does not feel teat
I way) that Mr. Magoon acted Improper
ly, but because it will not premit the
administration of justice to be brought
1 Into disrepute by a system or course
of conduct on the part of attorneys
which is calculated to bring about
that pnd. the court would have felt
constrained to have asked Mr. Magoon
to retire from me case, and likewise
Mr. Thompson, who is his clerk. - I
feel fully satisfied that in this case
there has been no intentional wrong,
hut a mere impropriety at most, and
If such an order were now made grea:.
Injustice mightbe done to the defendant.
The court will drop the matt?r

Q. You said a moment ago it was
shortly after I came in?
A. If I said it I don't remember.
I don't remember when I said it.
Q. Bat daring the course of the conversation
yoa said yon ought not to
talk about the divorce, yoiradrait that?
A In the course of tne conversation
I said that.
Q. And didn't I say to yon at the
timo that statement -was made by yon.
I dW not come to hear anything about
the case and did not want to hear
anytMag about it, "I was a friend of
A- Yos, and a friend of mine, yon
aeld vom came as a friend.
Q. 'Didn't I say "I don't want to hear
anvtblng about yoor Ude of the case?"
A. You didn't say anything about
my sMe of the case.
Q. That I didn't want to boar
aboHt the case?
Q. I said that?
Q. That I dkln't want to bear anything
about the ca&c?

Court Takes a Hand.
Uy the Court:
Q. What was It Mrs. Magoon said
when you met her on the street?
A. She shook hands with me and
said: "Mrs. Miner, you have-ray best
wishes for your success, and I hope
you will win your case." I said: "It
lsVathcr a burprise to hear you say
that. Your husband is my husband's
lawver." And she said: "I hope you
will win your case." I said: "You had
better not tell Mr. Magoon what you
have said to me." That was the con
vorsation that passed between Mrs.
Magoon and I. And I said to her: "I
felt very badly about Mr. Magoon
coming to me in the capacity of a
friend when he had already been en
gaged by my husband as his lawyer.'
And she said: "Mrs. Miner. I don't
think he was engaged." Then I met
Mr. Mngoon on the street and I cut
him dead. It was not because he was
my husband'K lawyer, for I spoke to
Mr. Ilrown and Mr. Thompson, but Mr
Magoon 1 cut simply because I consid
ured he had done a very mean thing
coming to me as a friend when en
gaged by my husband. If lie can prove
ho was not engaged I wnl change m
feelings toward him.
lly Mr. Magoon:
Q. Didn't you say you believed Ue
didn't wish you back?
A. 1 may have said it. I will not
Q. And didn't I tea you ho did want
A. Yes, 6lr.
Q. And didn't I say you would be
practically a widow nnd your dnughUn
would have no father, the father would

England with the child?
A. No. you didn't, say that. You
told me I would be iu the same po
Bltlon as Mrs. Cabby Brown, that sin.
got a dlorce nnd look now. what
blic Its. I said: "Well, she has her chil
droit." And you pointed out my po
sitlon would be similar to hers, and
said "Mr. Brown had married ngnin."
Q. Then the Vholo burden or tho
conversation was not on your going
Imck to the doctor?
A. That was a part of It.
Q. Was It not all of it?
A. Not quite all. It It had been
should not have cut you when I met
you on the street.
Q. So it was because you thought
was there to get Information to assist
Dr. Miner iu this case, that was the
reason you cut me?
A. Yes, sir.
By the Court:
Q. Were you a visitor at Mr. Ma-goon's
A. Yes, sir.
Q. And he had visited at your
A. Yes, sir.
Q. If you had known that Mr. Magoon
was to act at any time in the future
in nny capacity other than as
mutual friend would you have told
'hlm about the occurrence of Auguit
A. I do not think 1 should. I might
, havo said I left; I should not have
gone Into the details as I did.
should not have said to him or Answered
any questions about screaming;
but I remember I told some things and
then said uiere is a great deal more
I could tell. 1 will be fair to Mr.
and said I was on the point
going to get some notes I had male
and Mr. Magoon stopped me there.
Q. He stopped you?
A. Yob. And I was on the point
saying there is a great deal more than
I have tcld you, and he said: "Mrs.
Miner, 1 dont want to hear any of
Mr. SIHlman: If the court please.

I would rather give him the beaeit
