Roliert T. Lincoln, of the law firm of
Ishani fe Linenln, said this morning
that his firm held lionds of the face

of Georgia in lHii'.l and 1870, and since
repudiated, which they had been di

hmiL'ht un Jiv fort iimers. and for a
long time have been in the bands of
New York bunkers. Mr. Lincoln
stated that suit would be brought in
he United Ktates Supreme Court
within a short time by the State of
Illinois against the Hate of Georgia
to recover the amount of these repu
diated bonds. In 1N2 test suits were
brought bv the States of New Hamp
shire ami iew lora against ixmisiunu
by the Attorney-General, in the name
of the fStates, to recover the amount
of repudiated bonds by their citizens,
but tho decision of the Supreme
Court, delivered by Chief-Justice
Waite, was that owners of Mate bonds
could not sue in the name of their
Mate after getting the consent of that
Miite, or one State could not assume
the prosecution of the debts of an
other Mate 10 lis citizens. 11 in uv-
cause of this decision that the present
mode of action has been decided
upon. Whilo the suit promises to
of the relations between States under
the constitution, Mr. Lincoln said it
was linnossiblo to say what 1W issue
might be, although he was of the opin
ion that the legal points to be cons d
pred would be entirely novel to the
Snnrenie Court. Some time airo
move was made with a Bimilar end in
view by Judge IiOehrane of Georgia, as
American agent of a large number of
German holders of repudiated bonds.

These are all the signals in use by the
Signal Service, and are those referred
to in the Aitf w. as quoted by Mr
IWrlalon From lhe Brorla
To the Kditori of the Appeal :
I must, on liohalf of the bar, depre
cate any encouragement by your influ
ential journal of the giving of opinions
by the Supreme Court "from the
liench" in "litipited" cases. Tho ex
pression "from the Iteneh," as you un
derstand, excludes the taking of the
case under consideration aftertlie argu
ment of counsel. It is en'irely too
soon to encourage such an idea as
this. Wait until we know what sort
of judges will bo on the next Supreme
bench. We are uninformed as yet
whether the cradle or the grave, or
both, will Ik robbed to supply the
next Supreme lench. We have even
threatening us in this direction aspi
rants who have never made with the
profession anv character for learning.
So let the AerFAL bold up for the
present on the giving of ''opinions
from the bench The judges who
assume such a responsibility ought to
be "mightv men" of law. The bar, as
you well know, have not been satis
fied with the results of what
is claimed to have been conscientious
closet work of the present Supreme
A'-ourt. Some irreverent fellows have
even gone so far as to intimate thai.
