Wnt ar ' awyers James Edwards, a gemman of col or, once had faith in the wisdom of those with whom he passed the time in tie- private apartments of the county jail. James figured he was cooped up with a bunch well versed in the ways of the world and the ways of the law. James sained entrance to the jail by virtue of the fact that he swiped an overcoat lrom Ed Lockett. When he was arrested by Officer Murphy, he described in detail the various steps of the operation which resulted in the appropriation of the coat. He also explained to the former owner of the coat how the trick was turned. Then James went to the county jail. He met many persons there who had been before a court before. Some had done their 'bit" when it was coming to them. Others said they escaped. The concensus of opinion in the jail was that James should face the judge, deny his former confessions and by the same token protest his innocence. It is not known whether James' counsellors had considered the wisdom of an insanity or third that they advised him to fight the case, which he did. After it was all over, Justice Johnstone remarked as follows: "The sentence for stealing this coat would not have been so severe, because you admitted it at first. For stealing the coat I'll give you ten days. For turning about and lying over this affair, aftr you had ad mitted your guilt, you can have an extra twenty days." Last night, in the county jail. James Edwards, now a 30-day guest was speaking words to the general effect that most of these well-versed persons behind the bars know as much about law as a Poland China knows about the twenty-third Psalm.

PHILLIPS, Judge of the Superior Court MAKE PAWNING A BUSINESS LONDON A police court case has called attention to the existence in London of a vocation which is not known to exist anywhere else in the world. It is that of pawner, a pro fession given over entirely to women who, in the poorer districts of Lon don, undertake for a small compen sation to carry the goods of their ne cessitous but sensitive neighbors to the pawnshops. Most of this work of pawning is done for women who are ashamed to be seen entering a pawnshop, but some of it is done for other women who are too busy to at tend to the formality. In certain districts these pawners ekveekcB VGtil- i pip - ; to "-- TCI THIS light THIS UGvrt ' rnvFRi nst ttr nn t-vrcn.

In one of the meanest streets of the Fast End. which has pa u nship at either end, two women ply a busy trade as pawners. One of these women is a widow, known and trusted :n this work, and she has built up a ig connection in the neighborhood. She uses a peram bulator, and frequently is seen pass ing along the street with a load of miscellaneous articles destined for the pawnshop. Monday morning is her busy day, as hundreds of ill paid, casual laborers living in the district depend many times for their week's maintenance upon pawning some thing that day.
