Washing on, D. C, Jan. 8. The Im
propriety of a federal Judge's wrltiag
to an attorney on one side of a case
that had been argued before him for
information to e'ear up doubtful )
points became the point around which
members of the sena'e yesterday fired
question after question at Judge Rob-
ert W. ArchbaUl of the United States 1
commerce court, under fial by im-!

Run by Representative Sterling, one or ;

Members of the senate demanded of
JikIka Archbald time and again wheth

unfair to the other parties In a suit to
request of one attorney an explana-
tlnn or correction of evidence with-)
ou giving like privileges to the oth-!
er side. He Insisted he thought there J
wt nothing Improper in his conduct. !
Judge Archbald was on the stand j
nearly four hours. The end of all :
estlmony In the ease came before '
the close of th" day's proceedings. '
There remain n"-v only the closing '
arguments and the vote of the ."tiate j
as to whether or not Jiidce Archbald j

him. I
The senate determined -o give
three days to the arguments, the time I
