United States last week and made an!
extended argument in the case of The i

.have an act of the legislature regard
ing the tax for inspection annulled.
And like he always does, Mr. Biekett
_?&jre oijtj with fl y in colors. A press
dispatch Says that he created a line im
pression r?n thr court and ' everybody
else who heard him. His ne*er failing
good humor was in evidence and the:
court thoroughly enjoyed.it At times
toe dignified judges laughed. Keen
interest was shown in the argument, j
judging by the interrogations offered by,
at least ftve members of. the court.
Referring to one of th3 contentions
of the Opposing counsel, Mn Bick*'t4 i
mod this ludicrous illustration: ? I;
rqnst observe that the met/iod of bring
ing these expost facto '-matters to the
attention of the court certainly has the
merit of originality^ Counsel ? ay in
their brief that they will asW 1ea?o?te?
use in their arguments the facts fchifrwn
by .the report of the commissioner
and then proceed to incorporate these
very laets in their brief and use them
as the basis oftheir argument. I sub
