our courts have been conducted have
not alone beon in the Intorest of at
torneys who may bo forced to practice
therein, but especially in the interest
of the people who may unfortunately

acts In a haughty manner, Ifbo dis

Some persons seem to think when the
court, In tho course of a trial, deals
harshly and unfairly with an attor

Such Is not tho caso. Tho attornoy's
clients suffer far more than the attor
