He is ao truly a lawyer In the old-fashioned sense and his mind has so long moved In the groove that be could hardly get out of It if he would. Furthermore, he is tempera mentally one of those men whose sense of taste would always proven them from successfully trading upon personal nlatlons. Moreover, the persons who have been familiar with Senator Suther land's career from its p ginning in the mountain villages of l lah know that the ambition which has always pulled Him Is not a fortune, and not een a competence, but eminence in the law. This last he has. I have been told by one who overheard the words that Mr Eilihu Itoot once .-poko ol Senator Sutherland as one of the tlno greatest lawyers in America. LO!
