It is said that the speeches of Ward
and Gossom were especially brilliant,
Gossom driving his argument home
with telling effect; in fact, it is said
to have been one of the best efforts
ever heard in the Caruthersville court
room. Taking into consideration the
fact that Judge Gossom fought this
case single handed, and against some
of the best talent practicing at the Ca
ruthersville bar, it seems that the
Judge is not only making his
but is making good.
It will be remembered that Albert
