our courts, explaining the cause of
th?> crowded dockets and the apparent
need of more circuits, nuri
contending that the roinody is in
the hand of our judges, without increase
of number. Wo did not say
that oven a majority of our present
judges, however excellent men
iuuv uu, etui uppty one remeuy.
Wo doubt that we could oursolf.
If wo hnd the neceBaary legal qualifications;
wo hardly think we
could. J>ut men should bo olected
judges "vvho can answer tho requirements.

the Htato. t.hflll if mirrhf Kn
sary to supplement quality with
number.
i n tho articles referred to we oxpivseod
a purpose to refer in a
Kiil>sequ?nt issue to examples we
had s#en of the dispatch of husinca
which were complete proof of
our contention. Here is one:

At the opening of court the;

to call him. He started for

by the judge, who said firmly
"Stand within the bar and c;<ll in

calling from the door or windows.
These seats are for the accommodation
of persons who have busi

reserved for them as far as necessary.
They must he here when
called. They are here to attend to
public business and not to trade or
lounge around town. Every moment
of our time is paid for and it
is an injustice to the county thatl
one man be allowed to detain the '
, whole court while waiting for him
! to be called in from the street*. Mr.
Sheriff you will see that there is

which. lie kept a hotel, and having
many gne&ts at that time, lie
tarriod a little too long after the
reecHS for dinner one day. When

tho judge refuswd to modify tho
aeutunce, at leiut up to tin; time of
our latest iuformati: n.
< *.>1. K.'lllrlifnr lin.il 1.1m lnriruut
practice in tho county, and was attorney
for on? of tho parties to n
Huit which was on trial at tho tim?
for the noon roce-s on another day.
It should l)o srid that Judge Chtr!:
always required a ol.-utk to 1? plac.'d
in tliojcoiifl room, and when tile
time for tho ord?vr ( f tho day arrived
lliat meant tho prompt suspension
of everything else, ami
when the timo for ih<> r gular bu?ilioss
arrived it was resumed on the
minute. On tho tiny mci.lionod,
Col. Sandifer was not in hio place
at tho minute court was called to
order. The judge directed that
the trial proceed. His attention J
was na! ln.l tn T hr> nb-U'iH*.' of lli<> nf- I
lorney who alom-? represented one
of the parties. The judge that
the business of the court could not
!>e delayed hv the tardiness of persona
whose business it was to he
there. That if those who occupied
prominent positions were
not required to be prompt it would |
not bo reasonable to requite tiie
Iorh favoied to he in tlnir placet), J
therefore they should l?o on with
the trial. The opposing counsel
then plead with the judge, paying
that thin would place him in a very
emharraBiuK position, that Col.
Sandifer was in very delicate health
indeed, and he was sure he would
i
bo there just as soon as ho could. |
JuSt then the mission attnrnpv mm
aeon coming and the judge, somewhat
reluctantly consented to wait
until ho got to liia place.
It WiiB creditably reported of
Judge Clark that on one occasion
when he went to Rutherfordton,
ji*;riiiii)n it, was, 10 noia court, lie
reached the court houBe a few minutes
late, on account. of the trains
delay. His first act on taking his
sent was to direct the clork to enter

judge. The unanimous voice

a time was wot for court to open
and it was the duty of every one 1
who bad business there to bo on

judge. 1 To hud taken the risk of
ilenenditiir on it train's sfhoilnln

Some unfortunate persons felt
Lliat Judge Clark imposed hard*
ships, but perhaps no judge ever
i'ave more tfonerul satisfaction. 11??
