Changes Announced by
Chief Justice White
J After Long Work.
Sweeping reforms In the rules of
equity practice In the I'cilcral courts
wero announced today bv Chief Justlie
White. The new rules mill buome ef
fective February 1. and will woik Knat
changes In eeiult piocedtire all the way
from the Dlstiiit couits to the Su
preme Court. The effect doubtless will
cause the Statu courts to simplify their
The new rules arc Intended to simplify
and shoitcn equity promlure In ceiy
phase from the preparation of cases and
tho pleadings thieuigli the trial nnd ap
peal. While the procedure will be cut
to the bone, thu expense of litigation
will be lessened and dclas reduced to
a minimum
The new rules embody tho work of
a committee of the Supreme Court con
Blstlng of Chief Justlcu White, and Jus
tices Lurlon nnd Van eenter, over a
period of nearl a sear. As explained
by the Chief Justice, the best features
of the old practice hao been pre
served, and the best features of the
revised equity practice of England
been adopted. Present rules have been
In force foi half u century. Many
obsolete and useless rules hae been
In vogue
That the reform In equity practice
'will lead to refoims in criminal and
other procedure Is expected. The new
rules are thus of ureal Importance bath
to lawers and lltlgunts.
In announcing the new rules. Chief
Justice White made acknowledgement
to the Judges of the various courts una
bar committees who had made sugges-
ns, and also to the loid chanceiioi or
gland, who gave valuable Inrorma-
1 to Associate justice LAirton wnne
won nhrciRil thin summer.
Throughout the purpose Is not to les
sen the authority of the court. Ono
effect of the rules will be greatly to
reduce the sue of Driers, recoras, anu
the llko. The modes of taking tobtl
mony, especially expert testimony, are
much restricted Every effort Is mado
to minimize danger of delay. An Im
portant phase of the ruks Is that they
contemplate tho entire trial procedure
shall be, as far as possible. In open
court, unless before musters In chan
cery. An Important feature of the new rules
relates to prcllmlnai) Injunctions and
temporary n straining ordtrs The
rules provide no such restraining order
shall Issue without notice unless It up
pears or Is shown that Irreparable loss
to tlo applicant would otherwise ro
ault. Hearings when there is no notice
of tho issue of a temporary restraining
order shall take precedence of all other
matters, and all hearings In such cases
aro to be as expeditious as possible.
This. In substume. Is In accordance
with legislation on tho Injunction ques
tion, which conservative lawyers In
Congress havo advocated It does not
80 as far as organized labor demands.

Mrs. Becker Bases Appeal
On Age of Justice Goff
NEW YORK, Nov. 4. The untiring
wife of Charles Becker, In a final ef
foit to save her husband from the elec
tric chair, has begun a personal In
vestigation of the age of Judge Goff,
to determine whether proof that the
Judge Ls more than sevent), might be
regarded by the court of appeals as
sufficient cause for reversing the Judg
ment of Becker's conviction.
Before Mrs. Becker accompanied her
condemned husband to Sing Sing, she
visited a number of lawyers outside
of tho counsel retained for Becker's
trial before Justice Goff. Of theso at
torney she asked such questions as
"Is there any record either In New
York or Ireland, the countrs of Judge
Goff's birth, that states his age ex
actly? "Is It true that he Is about seventy
six years old?
"What Is the law which limits the
age of Judges to seventy years?'
To the last question the reply of
one attorney was a reference to Section
S3, relating to tho laws of the consti
tution of the State of New York, which
contains the following:
"No person shall hold tho office of
fudge or Justice of any court longer
than and until and Including the last
day of December next after he shall
bo seventv euis of age"
