THE U. S. SUPBEME 00UET.
An August Bolj Whose Etiquette ia
Tliejsuquettoof the supreme
court room ia very -rigid. L.iw-
.yjera appearing before the court
are given just so much time in
which to present their arguments,
and not one minute more us al
lowed them. No one is permitted
to take notes of the proceedings
outside of the lawyers inside the
bar. This is particularly true up
on decision day. If a spectator
takes out a piece of paper to make
a noto he is instantly warned by
a. messenger that he must 'desist or
leave the court-room. The reas
on of this is to avoid the sending
out of incorrect statements about
the position of the court.
There have been several -propositions
before the court to have its
proceedings reported verbatim for
benefit of the legal publications,
but the court has always been
azainst anything of the sort. 1 hey
have held that it would bo a need
less waste of expense without any
compensating advantages to the
legal profession. Even whero de
cisions are actually delivered they
are often held back for weeks for
polishing before publication. The
etiquette of the court has been so
rigidly maintained durintj its his
tory that I am informed that there
has only been one case of con
tempt of court since its establish
ment. This was a case where a
man before the court was ordered
to do something he could not do.
He was fined $250. This is the
only 6um that the court has de
rived from this sourcein its his
tory. Chicago Tribune.,
There is an old man in Chiches
terrille, in the Catskdls who al-way-ipfiaks
out in mee'tiflgr' &-
cently a city divine preached in
the little Methodist church of the
village, and the old man became
m-excited, at one-or two home
hrusts in the sermon which
seemed to .apply to a certain
"close" neighbor that he got up
and sheuted: "ThRt?i right, young
ster, hit Mm agaiu." And later on
when the sermon appeared to come
home to him, ho cried out in sten-
onan tenes: "That s so b'gosh,
We're .all sinners,
one of us."
A lawyer in Putman, Conn., was
consulted by a woman the other
day who desired a -divorce, she
eft him a check for $200, half of
which is to be "a retainer," and
the other S100 she received in
cash. The lawyer has since found
the check worthless and the wo
man a fraud.
'The company whioh built the
