M Benhy Geoiiob when a candidate for -K Mayor of New York in 1886, polled !'- 68,110 votes. In 1880 there were no offl- nt elal ballots distributed impartially to all f; voters with the names of all candidates 5' apon them, as Is the coso under the present I ballot law. Tho tickets eleven years ago ' wero distributed at tho polls by volunteers. !' In some election districts there were no f Toluntecrs; In many election districts there ' were no Georgo ballots. fin 1SSG the total voto of all candidates ,' lor Mayor of New York was 210,079. Mr. Geoiige polled approximately 30 per cent, of the total vote. The voting population of I New York, tho present city, has Increased i since then. The total voto of New York city at last year's election was 312,000. r Thirty per cent, of the present vote of New York city Is not 08,000, but 03,000. I On tho night of Tuesday, Nov. 2, 1880 Sf election day, 1697, by what may seem to somo a coincidence, falls on Nov. 2 Mr. ;' Geoiige, speaking to his followers at his I headquarters In Eighth street, said: "You know, you men know. you men who have r' worked night after night without a penny, you men who bare atood by the polla all day without a cent you know under what dlaadvantagea tola struggle ,, haa been made. ; Money for campaign expenses, necessary ", for an independent candidato under the p fotmer system of voting, is not necessary now. Wliilo the opposite, of Georgeism, ?,' the St. Louis platform, is assailed by tho fe Citizens' Union traitors within the Hcpub- if Hcan organization, the friends and sup- portersofllENUYGEOHOEcannot bo thought j of lightly when they persist In declaring .. that Henry Geoiice is to be elected. So T much the harder must conservative citizens i Trork for Tit ac y. t Japan as a Naval Power. m We printed the other day a cabled report k of an announcement in the Liverpool Jour- rial of Commerce, based on orders placed in it England, that Japan Is expected to spend t f (luring tho next eight years no less than $125,000,000 upon tho construction and ' equipment of war vessels. It so happens ? that this very subject Is discussed in tho October number of the Xorth American i Review by tho well-known shipbuilder, Mr. i Ciiaiiles II. Champ, who regards Japan as ' "tho coming sea power." No one, ccr- p tainly, Is better qualified to write upon this ' topic than Is Mr. Champ, seeing that, with the exception of the ships building at Yoko- ;' Buka, the whole of Japan's naval programme for the next few years has come under his F personal observation. j To appreciate tho progress making by "! Japan in the direction nf sea power, wo ,j should bear in mind that, at tho beginning of tho recent war with China, she bad no armored ships worthy of the name, although "it sho possessed a respectable force of cruisers h and gunboats. Among tho results of tho I war was the acquisition of several Chinese f Tessels, Including tho battleship Chen Yuen, of 7.-100 tons, and the Ping Yuen, i1 an armored coast-ilcfcnco ship, both of t which were captured by tho un armored ? cruisers of tho Mikado. At the end of the ; contest Japan had forty-three seagoing ves- v, sels, displacing, In tho aggregate, 70.000 tons, of which seven serviceable ships, hav- i tug a total displacement of IS, 000 tons, 1 wero prizes. Tho navy now in commission embraces forty-eight seagoing ships of llO.UUOtons displacement ana twenty-six j torpedo boats. Mr. Cramp says that the y five new scogolng vessels, liming a total -' displacement of 32,000 tons, represent tho most advanced types of model naval archl- fa tccture. Among them aro Included two Ji flrst-cloH battleships of 12,8U0 tons each, If tho Fuji and tho Yashlma. S So much for the present ; now for the Im- i mcdlato future. Mr. Champ tells us that 3 tho shipbuilding programme actually In pronpss of execution Is calculated to pro- A duco by tho year 1003 au effective force of U 07 sfcagolng ships, 12 torpedo catchers, and 70 torpedo bouts, with an aggregate dls. J placement of more than 200,000 tons. Not only la Jupati nowbulldlng more ships than V any dtber jiouer except Kngland, but, ac- 5 cordlngto Mr. Champ, sho is building bet- 4 terslips in Kntftlsli shipyards than Eng- land herself Ih coiiHtructing for her own i navy. Let us look at the work now doing $ In detail. There are, wo learn, three 14,800- $ ton battleships which nro well advanced at Armstrong's, Thompson's, and the Thames Y Iron works respectively. There Is a battle- v ship of about 10,000 toiih begun at Ann- fiL strong's. There aro four tlrst-class armored 'ft cruisers of 0,000 tons displacement und 20 A knots speed; two ut Armstrong's, one ut tho Vulcan works In Stettin, and oun ut j. the Forges ct Cliantlern, Havre, Franco. A 7L fifth armored cruiser of tho same slzo jj Is to be built In tho currcut jear at tho Iniperlal dockyard In Yokosuku, $ Jupau. Two 0,000-tou protected cruisers '' of 28 knots speed are under construction, ono at Sib Francisco aud one at Fhiladel- .',' Bhlo, onl thcro is a tlilrd protected cruiser t . of 4,300 tons and 23 knots speed at Arm strong's. Thrco 3,000-ton protected cruis ers of 20 knots, together with thrco torpedo gunboats and a despatch Tcssol aro build ing at Yokosuka. Thcro aro eight 90-ton torpedo boats building for Japan at tho Schlchau works In Elblng, Germany; thcro are four more of similar typo at tho Nor mand Works, at Havre, Franco, and there aro eight 30-knot torpedo boat destroyors going forward, four at Yarrow's and four nt Thompson's, in England. Such Is tho ex pansion of Japan's navy actually Insight; and when wo keep In view that tho new fleet comprises the very latest and highest types of naval architecture In respect of force, economy, and efllclcnry, wo ore not surprised that Mr, Champ should describe Japan's ndvaucu as jilienom-nal, nay, as Indeed cyclonic. What Is tho purpose of Japan's oxtrcmo activity in naval preparation at this thno? Mr. Champ does not bellevo that tho ex traordinary increase of her naval resources Ia ulmcd at tho United States. Ho thinks it probable that sho meditates a renewal of her efforts to establish a footing on tho Asiatic mainland, aud that, possibly, sho may contemplato tho eventual acquisition of tho 1'lilllpplnc Islands. If, howccr,sho simply Intended to attack China alone, or Spain alone, no such fleet as Is now under construction would bo needed; certainly not tho enormous battleships and the great armored cruisers. Apparently, Japan is determined to bccoiuo so unmistakably the preponderant naval power In tho far East that European nations will not again deem it prudent to Intcrposo and rob her of tho fruits of victory. Touching this point, wo learn from Mr. Cramp that not long ago a Japancso gentleman of distinc tion remarked in the course of conversation, that "whilo Japan was forced by circum stances to yield at Shimonoaeki much that she' had fairly conquered, sho still secured Indemnity enough to build a navy that would cnablo hcr-to do better next time." Tho three countries which, as bordering on that ocean, aro most deeply Interested In questions affecting tho control of tho North Pacific are Russia, the United States, and Japan. In view of tho vast proportions which, within n few years, tho Mikado's navy will assume, is It likely that our own country or that Russia will have in 1003 any pretensions to rank with Japan as Pa cific powers? Mr. Cramp answers tho question in tho negative. Ho points out that the United States has halted com pletely In the path of naval development, while ltussla is trying the experiment of rcilonco on her Imperial dockyards, which, although they turn out good work, aro not adequate to the task imposed by the situa tion outlined above. Japan, on the con trary, although sho has somo facilities of her own, is drawing on tho shipbuilding powers at onco of England, France, Ger many, and the United States. Moreover, the vessels which Japan is building in tho shipyards of Franco and Germany, as well as those, under construction in England, aro pronounced by Mr. Champ superior to any vessels which those nations aro building for themselves, class for class. The conclusion seems un avoidable that, In the race for naval su premacy In tho Pacific, Japan Is rapidly gaining, while Russia and the United States are losing ground. Mr. Cramp docs not hesitate to say that Japan, at her pres ent rate of naval advance, viewed with re lation to the lack of progress on the part of Russia and the United States, must lie able In three years to dominate thu Pacific against either, and, in less than ten years, against both combined. As to the charac ter and quality of the Japaneso personnel, Mr. Cramp, who has como in dally contact with Japanese naval officers as Inspectors of work, declares that they aro unsurpassed by the officers of any other navy in respect of professional ability, studious application, and capacity to profit by experience. At tention is also directed to the fact that, while all other nations have been ponder ing theoretical problems or performing sham manoeuvres, tho Japanese have been fighting battles, sinking ships, and bom barding towns. Stale Troops and the Forts. In the forthcoming November number of the Journal of the Military Service Insti tution Gen. AVinoati: shows clearly why we cannot depend on tho organized militia to supplv artillerists for thu new coast de fences in case of sudden attack, or upon hastily recruited volunteers. A certain part of each gun detachment could undoubtedly bo made up of such men, but no mere numbers could possibly supply forthwith tho discipline, tho knowl edge, the skill, and tho experience which tho trained gunner possesses. The modern rifled gun or mortar is a big and costly weapon, which can do tremen dous work against an enemy, but must bo bandied with precision. Even tho cost of its ammunition is so great that It is hardly deslrablo for any troops to usu it in practice, except those who are Intended for professional experts. Tho gunner is re quired, says Gen. Winoatk, In tho midst of bursting shells and the excitement of buttle, to work out u problem llko this : "That ship is tlireo miles off; sho Is approaching at such or such an angle, her speed Is fifteen miles an hour, tho forward turret Is the place to hit, tho wind Is stroiiK from 0 o'clock, tho temperature is 75 and tho barometer Is 30.00; I must therefore give so many degrees of elevation, and allow so many points for windage." With a swiftly moving target, and several shots perhaps needed to estab lish tho range, unless high skill and perfect familiarity with processes aro directing the work of tho gun, tho vessel may slip by, and then, so far as that gun is concerned, tho defence Is a failure. It is clear, therefore, that tho usoof high power guns against steam-propelled ships cannot bo intrusted to busty levies of un trained volunteers or to thaNatlonal Guard If not previously inudo experts In handling such guns. Even with two skilled gunners for each gun and mortar, Gen, Wimjati: calculates that " on Increase In thoartlllcry of 7,f00 men is tho very lowest which this country can get along with," He thinks that tho erection of heavy guns In tho armories of tho seaboard State troops, with nrmy instructors, supplemented by occasional tours of duty at the forts, with plenty of target practice, might do much toward fitting the National Guard for heavy artillery work. Still, there Is an ex isting need of trained gunueis. With an organization llko the Ilrltlxh Volunteer Artillery Association gunners would bo developed, but this would take a long time, and ho sees no sentiment in Its favor among the National Guard. Another objection made by Gen. Win. tiAii: to relylugon tho military organiza tions for heavy artillery work Is that tho welbtralued men among them would bo looking for commissions in cuse of a great war, leaving only a small number, uud they tho least skilled, In tho ranks. Again, a largo part of tho organized militia is too far from tho ports to go to thorn for In structlon. Then tho cost of practlco with tho guns would bo great, as has been Bald, although this could bo lessened by tho uso of auxiliary barrels of small calibre. A much better use of the militia as artil lery, In Gen. Winuate's opinion, would bo to accustom It to handling field pieces. With $1,000,000 a year additional doolod to increasing tho numbers of tho soacoost artillery, $500,000 to increasing those of tho infantry, and $500,000 to supplying tho National Guard with field pieces and their ammunition, he thinks our needs would he well met. At all events, tho ar tillery should havo men enough to take caio of the heavy guns In peace and direct their working In war. Call Off Your Lightweights t A few words to tho responslblo chiefs of certain great Republican newspapers out side of New York : The need of a touch of tho master hand Is apparent In such great metropolitan jour nals as tho Philadelphia Press and tho Chicago Tribwit, and In such other jour nals of the second class In Importance as tho lloston Daily Advert it ami tho Hart ford Courant. It Is not concelvablo that Republican editors llko Charles Emory Smith and Joseph Meuii.l and William E. Daurltt would knowingly and deliber ately lend their aid to tho enemy against which they wore contending so valiantly In unison only twclvo mouths ago. Nor is It conceivable that they desire to promote tho cause of Hryanism in Now York, or to de stroy or cripplu tho organisation which represents in this particular field all that they themselves represent in their respec tive regions. Suppose the vcono of tho present struggle for the maintenance of what was won In 1800, and what must bo preserved In IbiJS aud In 1900, were suddenly transferred to Philadelphia. Would tho editor of tho Philadelphia Press tolerato In thu columns of his sturdy journal any Mugwumplsh view of partisan obligations t Supposo tho battleground were now shifted to Chicago. Would tho editor of tho Chicago Tribune model its utterances after those of that New York namesake of its own which ceased to bo Republican when It fulled to capture tho local organi zation by means of Its creature Miliiol land, and becamo merely the organ of an impotent personal spito and a ridiculous personal vanity, a once powerful Republi can newspaper dead in Influence and mori bund in every other respect 1 Suppose lloston were the point upon which Bryanlsm was focusing its efforts. Would the editor of tho lloston Daily Advertiser choose this campaign as an opportune time tor the cultivation of the spirit of demotal ization and disorganization ( Suppose even Hartford wore assailed by the enemy. Would thu editor of tho Hart ford Courant welcome or resent advice from a distance that he should haul down tho regular Republican flag and turn over the command to guerrillas I The moral certainty that a course of de liberate treachery to the Republican prin ciples of 1890 Is impntsiblc In the case of any one of theso Republican editors loads us to assume that they have committed the discussion of the present situation in New York to subordinates of inferior intelli gence or of less robust Republicanism. Call off your lightweights, gentlemen, for they are giving aid and comfort to tho common enemy and they aro shamefully misrepresenting you. Both Low the Ally of Henry Georgo. Two candidates for Mayor now in tho canvass have platforms which are similar In their spirit, so far us concerns municipal government. They arc Hi:.vitYGKOHGKaud Sinn Low. When the Low enterprise was started last spring there was no prospect that GeoHOE would be a candidate against him. G euro K was then unwilling to enter into tho canvass because of literary occupations which ho regarded as of more moment to him and the public thuu the politics of tho campaign of the autumn. Accordingly, many of his supporters entered actively into the Low movement. When tho Secre tary of the canvassing committee, of the Citizens' Union inndu his report on tho subject ho acknowledged especially the as sistance In getting signatures rendered by George men. It was justly their due, for they assert that their following did more to swell tho lists than was dono by any other part of tho population. At this timu Low's agents wore assidu ously cultivating "Labor." They brought its representatives Into conferences with them at tho Cooper Union, and their strougest hopes wero In tho worklngmen. They plastered the districts most inhabited by mechanics and laboring men with art ful appeals. Low carefully avoided saying anything that might givo offence, to thoso of them who aro of Rryaulto sentiment or Tammany affiliations, and tho Citizens' Union made its platform with a view to currying favor with them. Low did tho samo In his speech and letter of acceptance, catering, on tho ono hand, to the religions public with his "fear of God" aud, on tho other, to tho social rebels with Intimations that ho was favorable to their theories. Tammanys pusillanimous couisc, how oer, so disgusted GEOiion that lie changed his mind, reluctantly laying asldo his lit erary occupations to engage In a straight forward nryanlto canvass. Tammany hav ing relinquished to him the title of Demo cratic regularity, ho becamo tho regular Democratic raudidutc. Immediately all his followers withdrew fiom tho Low move ment und went over to their natural leader pell niell, and with great enthusiasm. Low's catering to Labor had been In vain. Moieover, when tho Georgo platform ap peared it Included this whole Low platform as to municipal mutters purely, except the "noii-purtisuuship" humbug, aud il was a square declaration of vicious principles, readily tinderstumlahlo by everybody, whllo the other was evasive and insincere. Tho bottom of tho Low enterprise was knocked out so far ns concerned " Labor," and Low was compelled to chunge his tac tics. In his Cooper Union speech he guvei up ull attempts to cajole "Lubor" as man ifestly viiln, and directed his arts to the capture of tho "rtspectablu" voto. Ills cajolery of tho George people, however, still remains In his platform, uud he can not get it out. Low, therefore, Is recognized by tho George crowd as their best political friend. He Is doing ull ho can to uld them In cap turing Nuw York uudcr their natural leader. Except for a division of tho con servutlve vote, caused by his vnlii and stub' born candidacy, they would huu uochuuco 1 of fiuccecding. With It they arc absulutu in their confidence, There may be doubt j among tho friends of other candidates, but ml h .,,,1111 ' nn -..h ii il. ",n i rfilmi there Is nono In their camp. Henry Geohoe himself aud all his followers look upon his election as a certainty. Setii Low ploughed tho ground and sowed tho seed, and Henry Gi:oimi: expects to reap tho crop. Nor can It bo denied that GKoncn: has much reason for his confidence, too much for tho comfort of conservative men who arc informed as to tho facts of the political situation. Tammany's zeal and flro of en thusiasm has gone over to Geoiuik, who will conduct a I cd-hotHrjaul to campaign, which will bu exactly to tho liking of tho great mass of the Tammany hosts. Scth Low will help him nloug so far as ho can by at tempting to divide tho enemy. That Is tho situation as it actually Is, and any man who does not sco It Is too fur til) I" tlU clouds of his delusions to sco ter restrial affairs as they arc. Tho larger tho Low vote, the more probabla will be tho election of Henry Geoiioe as tho first Majorat the Greater New York; und thcro is no way of preventing that catastrophe, except by the concentration of the conserva tive voto on Gen. Tracy. That is an un avoidable necessity, and even the fools will bo compelled to recognize it eventually. AVluit Itcpttblicnns Aro Hero For. Tho Citizens' Union platform on which Mr. Low was nominated Invited to Its rolls "members of any national party what ever," llryanltcs and Mostltes Included. In his letter of September denying thu report that ho would withdraw, Mr. Low said that hu would gladly accept " any nomina tion, Republican or Democratic, on any platform," provided ho was left to run tho government himself. Fancy a man asking for tho support of conservative voters who thus pictured tho Republican party yoked politically with the Rryanltc organization! Tho defection from Low to Glorue showed tho original character of tho Citi zens' Union outfit. Today Mr. Low Is linked wlthTummauy Hall by the "Ship" or Cuckoo Democracy, which Is half for Tammany and half fur Low. Tho Republican organization in hero to beat Hryanism, not to dicker with Its friends or to mako a trncowlth It on any terms. It has for Hryanism, or Georgeism, a feeling of irreconcilable hostility. Hut for tho man who, through his Republican affiliations aud professions, would have wheedled the Republican organization into committing sulcldo for his benefit, and into striking its colors before oven en tering the field where Hryanism Is arrayed for defeat or victory, it has a feeling of intense contempt. Thank Heaven tho leaders of tho Repub lican party were neither fooled nor treach erous. They nominated Gen. Tracy wisely and honorably. Work aud vote for him. Within a week two resolutions have been laid before the public that will uinko the ?orcu of sincerity rite. Tho first was adopted by tho Citizens' L'nloii uheu nomlmUInu Its thket: " Kttottfd, Ibat this committee heartily Indorto the administration of Slay or Stkoxu." MajorSTitoNo knows better. If tho Citizen Union In truth " heartily Indorse" thoftrontr adiinnlstratlon it would baro nominated tbe author of it instead of Mr, Low.

The second resolution which wo havo in mind was that adopted on Thursday by tho Park Dc pirtincnt In consciiucnco of tbe death of Park Commissioner Sulks: ' The board deMres to place on record a testimonial a4 to our felluw Comrii kalnner' work, ability, aud thv pu,fiitun of thofe qualities that make th, mot uneaarul public ctll.'Uli aud tbo ruutt lotnl mrn.

Will Low run on this hodgo-podgo Tammany Bryanlto nnd Citizens' Unlun ticket I Of course ho will. He will run on any ticket, "on any platform," for, as Mayor Stisono said on Thurs day, "it is tho ambition of his lifo lo bo Mayor of tho Greater Now York," and " I know a year ago that he wanted to bo Mayor, and no power on earth could stop hlui." Ho wants to bo elected, and any bargains with Tammany that help him will bo ratified thankfully. Ho would run with anybody, and "no power on earth could stop him." Tho call made upon tho Latter Day Saints by tho aged President of their Church, Wilford Woomiurr, to get togother In poll tics, has created somo commotion In Utah. In his sermon at the semi-annual conference, just held at Salt Lake City, ho told his followers that they must put asldo Democracy and Hopub llcanism nnd voto for both Stato and county officers as tho Interests of tho Church required. This Is said to bo tho first open nnd authorita tive utterance of tho kind uiado for a long time, and it Is thought to be for tho special purpose of procuring tho election of a Mormon ng Mayor. Of course, the Dcntllo indignation, excited by this utterance, is based on Its apparent breaking of tho understanding that, after tho admission of Utah as a State, thcro should bo no attempt to mako Mormons voto as a body under Church direction. Hut President WoorniCFF urges that, without tho voting of Mormons as Mormons, they will bo "taxed to death." It la -inspected, honovor, that this forthputtlng Is in tho Inter est of sundry ambitious Mormons, friends of his, who do not want such a body of otcs scattered, a part of them being froo to go against thorn.

TOTimKniTonorTnE Sun Si'r: A decision rendered not long ago by the Apprllato Division of tho Second Department of tho Supreme Court 1 of Now York has caused reporters consldcrabls uneasiness. It argues that tho fees of stenog raphers are altogothor too largo ami that their charges for reporting references aro extraordi nary nnd unwarranted. A portion of tho opinion referred to Is ns follows: There have been MI hearings b forothe referee, the longest hearing being four hours and Ihe shortest one hour, lho average being n fraction les than two h urs and a half for each hearing. I'romtlme to tlma the defendant has paid to his attomey the sum of tl.ono, to the referee from time to time toon, to I stenographers and witness s 11,1,'d VI Tlin refcreo has been paid In all about SI, "110, nnd the stenog rapher about (1,000; 4, 1170 pages of testimony havo bien taken and fifty-three witness 1 heard. I'oralong time Ilia fees of referees led the proces sion of fees, and frequently amounted to more then the sums paid lo counsel. But established o-dercan- 1 not altvays maintain ltelf. Stenographers looked 1 with Jealous 1 ye upon this fatness of Ins .Modestly, but with determination, pertinacity, and legislation to aid, they cr pt up, desire ct r kc plug pa"e with opportunity, until It has brought them at the top, with appetlto nhettod and keen scent for more. It Is the usual thing now that stenogra phers' feos aro greater than referees' fi es. We read In the present record! "The referee has been paid about 11,700. The stenographer has rrci Is ed about ll.VOO" And more Is to euine The defendant surely can testify that the sentimental aje, svhen honor and renown svas the motive which brought men to devotion In the law, has passed away, He seems to have met only the hardest kind of hard, practical facts, and Is at prctont hi Ing ground be tween tbe upper mtltstona of the plaintiff's active ef forts and tho lois er mlllstono of his attorney's refusal to act, or to permit any one else to do so. It Is theso things which bring tho administration of Justice Into disrepute. This ptactle-o courts should lay hold of with an Iron hand setting their stern disapproval upon such methods. The srstem Impoverishes lltl gants, amounts to a denial of Justice, and la tho cause of Just lomplalnt br the people. The Court emphasizes tbo tact that the sum paid to tho reporter often exceeds that paid to tho referee, and declares substantially thnt for set oral yoars past tho demands of shorthand writers havo been Increasing at nn alarming rate. Ktr-erlencei! reporters, however, nnd other persons acquainted with lho subject will not agree with tho opinion so far ns It concerns tho members of tho shorthand fraternity. From the time that shorthand was Ilrst used lu thlB country for rcrordlnr; tho proceedings of courts, tho established charge of non-salaried stenographers lias been 25 cents per folio of 100 words for a single copy, additional copies being mado nt a much lower rnto In lho casenborn alluded to the tvoewrltten transcript consisted of 4.1)70 pages. Tho usual number of words on a page of legal mutter is about 'Jf0, and very rarely will n pigo contain less ll.an 200. A record of -1,970 pages nf 200 words each would tii.ike'll.UlO folios, which, nt 2S ronta each, would amount to S2.4S5, or SSbS more than tho reporter In the enso nicntiotmd actunlly charged. I nder the circumstances, also, is It surprising that the compensation of tho referee should be less than that of tho stenographer J In the easo of a refereneo lasting four hours, for example, tho work of ,ho refcroc censes at tho end of that time, while the work of tho reporter scarrolv begins. For him remains the- wrnrlsomo tisk o'f dlctnting his notes nnd editing Ihe copv. if lho session has been n lively one. eight or Ion hours, or even longer, tuny bo rciiilrrd for him to go over hla notes and 'endcrnu aliroltitelvan'urate transcription.

After deducting the necessary cpri'ditun a, Ibcro'ore. the repor'rr hasloit as his share of remiim ration somewhat 1 lt-m than two-thlnls nf the original fee. 1 If thestenogriphcr'sihirgeiii the case cited I were-based on tho amount of time ronsuinnd bv tho 1-14 hearings, averaging two nnd a half hours e-ach. would be found that I.1M). the amount lie reeeit oil. fell far short of eoinpeu sntlng '.llm for the d.i - occupied by tho trial. ! ram ago when reporting was done in long natiil lawyers wero obliged to proceed vcrv slowly vit their eniiiin.i!ions and tho process was rsttrcniPlt tedious.
