TsnbHtantlal Justice. A few lawyers were sitting in ono of tho city restaurants a few clays ago eat ing luin-h and discussing difiorcut sub jects win n uuo of them told tho follow iiig story : This occurred somo years ago in tho office i f n former justico of tho peace. An attorney, who bus sinco left Sioux City, bud been engaged to defend a man fcr the .-rime of petty larceny. The law yer knew th it the case against his client was u pretty strong ouo and ha decided to beard the linn in his den. As ho en tered the room bo tolittbo justico of tho case, the uumo of bis client and added ho did not think there was any evidence to convict. At the fame timo he slipped a $20 goldpieco in tho baud of the jus ticu mi l save biiu a knowing wiuk. Tho court said nothing, but, pulling open tho cash drawer, slipped the money in. The case went to trial, und after the evidence had all been introduced there appeared to bo no question cf tho guilt of tho defendant, tut his counsel was confident, thinking the goldpiece had done the work. The ooWct then summed up tho case, and, to. the astonishment of tbo defendant's connstd, eaid : "Tho court finds the defendant guilty as charged in the information and fines him $100, cf which amouut $20 lias been paid. Tbo defendant will bo com mitted to the county jail until tho re mainder is paid in to this court." Nothing inoro was said, und tho jus tico settled back in his chair, satisfied that tba laws of tDo state had been up bald and a dishonest attorney had been left in tho lurch. Sioux City Journal.

Not receiving the passes as soon as bo expected them, ho wroto another letter declaring that bo wanted tboso patses at once and no fooliug about it, as be wished to use them now, not six mouths hence. For somo reason his demand was honored, and be receiv ed tho passes. Was bo ostouisbpd or grateful;' Not n bit, Ho held them for a week, mid then sent them back with a note which read, 'Have these passes indorsed pood for berths and meals. ' "Tho Albany agent duly transmitted tho communication to President Depew's private sec retary. Tho member waited awhile, in d then ho weut for tho Al bany ngoit, who could only answer that bo hid duly dispatched tho passes to headquarters. Another wait mid then another wrathful demand from the new member lor bis passes. Tbo Albany agent, to rid himself of tho annoyance, sent a letter to headquarters detailing tho new member's persistent demands. Ho reueived a reply which he duly turn ed over to his tormentor.
