JUSTICE IS HAMPERED.
The Bench of the State ef Delaware U ia a Had Way. Ooe Lawyer Want# a Judges Retirement BUI P*e**d—argument For the Defence In tbe Phosphate Worin Caee. Judge Houston was able to attend court yesterday afternoon, much to tbe grati fie atlou of the jurors In the damage of Anna Marie Williams vs tbe W e case Alton and Wbaun Company. They are heartily disgusted with the way In which the case has dragged along and tbe lawyer who makes tbe shortest argument will doublées get the longest verdict. William 8. Prickett, for the plaintiff, occupied tbe early part of tbe session In arguing the matter before the jury. He contended that ths men died from tbe gas Inhaled while work'ug In tbe acid chamber. He deplored the fact that William John Williams, the expert chem ist, was not In Wilmington when the men were prostrated He thought it wonld have been a great satisfaction to ths deceased if Chemist Williams oonld have called on Joshua Williams and told him that there was no nss of his dying, because tbeie was not any gas in the add claimed, that one, when, as a matter of fact fonr men were killed They were killed with out warning The atatemeu-s of Bonner snd Kettlewood were not substantiated Williams was 80 years old, and would probably have lived fourteen years longer. a week, and took It home to her would make his yearly earnings to $400. Therefore the wldo damages aggregating between $4 M0 and $6,000, ana she thought very moderate. Benjamin Nields took the floor, and consumed the rest of the afternoon In reading law on the subject, and citing authorities. The court then adjourned until 10 o'clock* this morning chamber. Tbe defence, he had set out to prove 1« bad not killed any Hla wife says that be earned $8 That amount w claims merely a test case 80m« persons have wondered why tbe Wa'ton and Whann Company are fight lug the case so hard. It la because three other salts for almost similar amounts hang upon tbe issne In this one Should the Williams case fall through, there is very little Ukllhood that ths other esses will be pnsfaed. Superior Coart reconvened at 11 o'clock this morning. Judge Cullen was on the bench at 10 o'clock, bnt Judge Houston did not arrive until 11 o'clock, and would not have been there then if Jndge Cullen had not become tired and went after him. There was an Impression abroad that another session of toe court would be lost. The bench of tbe state is in a déplora ble condition, fined to .his home by Jndge Houston has adopted the ground hog policy of not coming ont nntll tbeie 1* better weather; Judge Cnllen is powerless to sit In court and nass upon cases by himself, aud Judge Grubb can not elt In New Cas' le comity oases that do not Involve issnea of life and death. That Is just the way in which the mat ter stands. Justice ia crippled, business is delayed, and , both lawyers aud jurors are Indignant. All recognize that tbe condition of affairs is brought about by tba advanced age of tbe judges.and there is a feeling abroad that tbe judges should retire after long aud honorable service, or that some law should be passed making It possible for one jndge ' to preside and de '.ermine cases brought in the Court or General Sessions of tbe Peace and Jail Delivery and tbe Superior Court. Oue of tbe most prominent attorneys of New Castle county said this morning: "Tbe General Assembly can now s e what a mistake, it made In not passing tbe Judge's Retirement bill introduced during the lest session. It most mak some provision at its next session or things will be at a standstill RH judges should be retired on psy that will allow them to live In comfort for the rest of their lives." The chief justice is con serious illness The NIELDS FOR THE DEFENCE. As soon as court opened Mr. Nields resumed bis law and citations of decl sions, minâtes At 11.16 o'clock he began addressing tbe jury. He claimed that tbe men were warned not to go into the acid chamber. They went in there with their eyes wide open and tbe company was nit to blame. He was still arguing when court took a recess until 8.30 o'clock. This occupied about fifteen •AMAOK SUIT SETTLED. The ease of Alexander Lisle, adminis trator of Edwin H.

Finally, be became tired of this and with a sharp ring for "extra operator," he said: change, for the rest of this morning if anybody calls Optra House, give four short rings, as we cannot attend to them.'' This comforted the lines of eager patrona and all was quiet again until It was noised about that the men at the head of the line were buying twenty or two cozen tickets each. This msde everybody restless again, although no protest could be made at this procedure. Then the people in the rear began to resort to other means. A purchaser wbo had come In late would ask permission of the men behind him to leave the rank for a moment. Then he would slip up to the fortunate patron nearest the window and say "I'll give yon 50 cents to trade places In this rank with me." If the offer was refused he would raise it to a dollar and this would be accepted. This was frequently done by men wbo wanted seats for a family, select company or an organisation of some kind.
