JUDGESAND JOKERS FnnnyIncidtnts Tbtl Occur Sometimes^in tkt Coirts. HE TOOK HIS EXCEPTION TheJudge Owmd the Dog-He Had^a Right to Cum the Court^^A Lawyer's Repu^^tation. Butte,June U.^The funny side of law^exist* ss well ss the staid and dignified^side, but it ran only be appreciated by^those ^ ho frequent the courts and yet are^at peace with tho world. The criminal^who sees the gallows or the penitentiary^staring him in the f see .does not see tho^funny side, and the man who lias several^thousand or a million dollars stuked upon^tho whim of a jury or the judgment of the^court seldom has his mind in such a frame^that be can appreciate tho humorous^things that crop out of the case or the^jokes perpetrated by lawyers, but the^funny |^nrt of it is there just the same und^ratio of the best stories in circulation are^those told by lawyers in connection with^law and judicial dignity. A group of law^^yers at the court house a few days ago en^^tertained each other and a reporter w ith^Home rare and choice ones. Itwas not very long ago that John T.^Baldwin and Thompson Campbell ap^^peared as counsel on the same side of a^caso in one of tho courts. During the^course of the trial a point of law was^raised and argued. The court derided tho^question against Mr. Baldwin and hi* as^^sociate and they attempted to raise a dis^^cussion with the court on its rulings.which^was cut short with this remark from the^judge: Theattorney* in this court ran exer^^cise two privileges if they do not like the^ridings. One is to take exceptions and the^other is to adjourn to some wayside grog-^grry and cuss the court. Mr.Campltell took an exception. Haveyou taken your exceptionasked^Mr. Baldwin of his associate. Yes,sir.^ replied Mr. Campbell. Thenif it please the court/' continued^Mr. Baldwin. ^I will exercise the other^prerogative,^ and he did and ^cussed^ the^court unmercifully. The judge met him a^few days later on the street. Ihear, Mr. Baldwin,^ the judge said,^^that you arc 'cussing' me considerably^about town. Ye*your honor,^ was the reply, ^and I^do it by special loave of the court. **Wo*MI'll reverse that order now. Noyou don't, for if you want to change^your special order you must do it in open^rourt,' and the colloquy ended and the^'cussing' continued. Therecent experience of Mrs. Coin of^Dublin guleh with the county commis^^sioner* reminded another attorney that^the woman at one time wa* up before the^late Judge Irvin on the charge of assault^and battery and disturbing the peace.^The prosecution had a clear case and^showed beyond a doubt that Mr*. Cole^bud made an aggravated assault upon^another woman and beat her unmerci^^fully. The attorney* In the case summed^up the testimony and made their argu-^mentsat the close of which the judge^aroused himself from a half sleeping state^into which he bad been talked by the at^^torneys, and said: Thiswoman is charged with assault^and battery and disturbing the peace, the^offense being alleged to have beeu com^^mitted in Dublin gulch. She is discharged,^because that is the normal condition of^the gulch and therefore she could not^have disturbed it* peace. Hereare two good ones told of the ex^^perience of I. W. Lipplncott while hold^^ing the office of police judge. Jim Dwyer^w as city jailer at the same time, and Lip-^pineott had the usual dog or two follow^^ing him. While walking into the police^rourt one day Dwyer kicked one of the^dogs, which was lying in his way. Nevermind that,^ said the judge to the^jailor. ^There are worse ^ of ^ In this^court house than that dog. Thojailer made no reply and walked^out of the court room, but the next day,^after having thought the matter over for^24 hour*, he returned and, walking up to^the judge's stand, ho leaned over tho desk^and said: Yousay there are worse ^ of ^ in this^Iiot 1 oo than your dog, eh^ Will you just^adjourn court for a few minute* and step outside'.' Theinvitation wa* declined and the^court proceeding* returned. JudgeLippinoott had a way of dealing^with vagrancy case* by giving them 30^day* in jail or 34 hour* to get out of town,^and they generally accepted the latter. Oneday he passed the usual 30-day sen^^tence on a vag, but before ho could^mention the other prerogative he was in^^terrupted by the vag with. Iunderstand that you usually suspend^sentence to give a fellow timo to got out^of town, and 1, Whotold you this court suspended^sentence*^^ said the judge with an ex^^hibition of offended dignity. Iheard it over In Seattle.^ replied the^vag, and then Llppiiicott sent him up for^60 days. Duringthe life tine of the late James^B. Spratt tho judge of the criminal court^once appointed him to' defend one of a^number of prisoners who were ranged bo-^fore the court. Mr. Spratt did not liko^the appearance of the toughs before him,^and besides it was evident that he had re^^cently lingered around the flowing bowl.^Be arose from his seat and after survey^^ing the prisoners for some time he turned^to the judge and said: Willthe court please designate which^one eff these1 am to de^^fend V JudgeMcHatton during the early part^of his term of office had occasion to send^an order to a well known justice of the^|^rarc to appear in court with the papers^in a certain case. The justice sent word^back that he did not have to conic and the^sheriff was sent after him with an attach^^ment. When he was brought before the^court he was fined f 10 and rosts. I'llpay it,^ replied the justice, ^but it^is a hell of a way to do,^ and the court in^^creased the fine to $60. Anattorney, who is better known than^prominent as a lawyer, some time ago^was plaintiff iu a suit in court, in which^Ins character for truth and veracity was^brought into question by the defense, ami^a number of his enemies were called to^the witness stand, and all laid |^articular^stress on the charge that the attorney's^cl.arocter for truth i^d rererlty was very^had. The last witness of that character^was particularly hitter, and the attorney^called t he court bailiff to one corner and^asked him: Howmuch do you think the court^would tine mc if I should say tothewit- ncss.'Don't you know, youthat youhave been arrested eight times lor^IMTjury'.' Thebailiff thought $100 would !^e about^the sno of the flue, which the attorney consideredtoo steep and he concluded to^confine himself to a propercroae-oxainina- tion. Lawyer*generally are not accused of^being very familiar with the content* of^the Bih'e, but Thompson Canipl ell evi-^dcrt'y does not belong to the general run^in th it respect. astho prophet Moses says.^ he ob^^served in a recent address to a jury- ^Yon^can lead a horse to water but you can't^make him drink. Hequalified the credit of that quotation^by adding: ^That is I think the Bible says^so. although it may have been Shake^^speare. ItlVINr:NKKVICK*.

Bcrrr.,June 18.--Mrs. Komigh ap^^peared in police court nt 2 o'clock this^afternoon, accomimnied by her little hus^^band. Mr*, ltomigh is a full-sued, buxom^woman in the prime of womanhood, with^a fair face and a pair of eyes so impassive^that they seemed to have been made for^playing poker. Adam Furraday sat back^among the spectators und looked a*^though ho wished that game of imker^which started Inst Sunday night was^Anally over. Mrs. ltomigh took her seat^with Attorney llaldorn on one side and^the dapper husband on tho other. Judge^McMurphey assumed his judicial seat and^whil^ tho audience *at breathlessly, an^^nounced his decision. Ihave considered the evidence care^^fully,^ said the judge, ^and I find that no^larceny has lieen committed. The pris^^oner i* discharged und the sheriff is in^^structed to turn over to her all tho prop^^erty that was in her possession at the^time of her arrest. Thisorder restores the check of 11.8(10^to Mr*. Romigh. Payment on it ha* been^stopped, but there is still likely to be a^suit over it. An attempt will be made to^collect it, and suit will be brought. The^claim of the woman is that if Farraday^had won the ^t^40 cash which she put up^against the check, he would not have re^^turned the money, and she thinks that she^should have equal rights at poker even if^she is n womun. Thequestion now is whether a gambling^debt can be collected in Montana, and tho^courts will probably he called on to de^^termine this point. As n rule gambling^debts cannot be collected, but in this city^gambling is licensed and it is claimed that^this license place* it on an equality with^any mercantile business. A mercantile^debt can bo collected and it is, therefor*,^claimed that n gambling doht can he col-^lceled through process of law. Thestory of the night's poker game^shows a peculiar system of playing.^Two packs of cards were used. Mrs.^ltomigh at first won steadily, anil Addm^went out to get another puck. With tais^pack ho won steadily. Mrs. Bnmigh ^n-^sisted on returning to her own pack, and^the matter was compromised by using^each pack alternately. Mr*. Komigh Ini^variably won with her pack, and Adainin-I^variably won with hi*. Tho way ^he .gotl^the best of it w as In betting heavily when i^her pock was in use and lightly when^Adam'* cards sere in play.^ i Theauthorities have not yet done any^^thing in regard to this poker game, but it^is possible that both parties may he ar^^rested for gambling without a license and^also for gambling on Sunday.
