we all agree in our views; now you know that we three constitute the Supreme Court, and, while I give you the exception with the greatest pleasure, I fear you will not make much by it." He stood in a reflective attitude for a moment, then said: “May it please your Honor, I believe I will take the benefit of the exception, anyhow, for the tenure of office is very uncertain in this territory.”

I have heard the incident related with this sequel--that he took the case to the Supreme Court, that the Judges mentioned were all off the Bench, and the demurrer was sustained. I cannot vouch for the correctness of this sequel, however.

Now, Mr. President, and brothers, I owe you an apology for detaining you so long with this unsubstantial matter, this unwritten poetry of the profession. I am inclined to believe, however, the actual intellectual and moral tone of a given period, as well as the social status, has no truer index than its current anecdotes. Every new and formative community is marked with distinctive individualities. In the onward sweep of development and civilization, and in the largeness of population, individuality becomes fused in the general mass and loses its distinctive characteristics.
