tacts had no existence, and were pure
fiction. In all his practice, hu told
the Court, be had never met ''so dan
gerons an ndvcisary in dealing with a
question of fact as the Honorable
George P. Edmunds." He closed lha
refutation nf the charge of fraud in
the following caustic manner: "The
rattlesnake, driven to the corner in
despair, plunges his poisoned fangs
into his own body and dies in agony;
and that t'uluiny ia the rattlesnake
whose fangs were timed at Jacob
Etey, but did not reach hiin.und now
are plunged into its own body; and
Ihe serpent will die here no ore tne
Court in mortal agony. The Honor
ab'e Gcoriro F. Edmunds, with that
testimony before him. which he had
read lwicfJ.-.viijfi'rcliarirea'of per
mry against Jacob Estey; and, with
Nnutimoninus air, lamented that hit
duty compelled htm to expose sucq
Lr niinals to judicial censuie, but con
soled the Court with the reflect mo
that it waa but a repetition of human
experience, and that but for such men
and such crimes Courts would not ex
int. In my opinion, the men who da,
lilimtely wrote theso diabolica! 80
citations, founded upon such faets,and
deliberately aud publicly declaimed
inem in una presence, nnv a. m-uncr
heart nor consoiencej lor they exhibit
neither charity nor pity-neither iruin
nor shame."
Senator Edmunds writhed under
the excoriation ot the eloquent and
I eminent lawyer, even as a serpent
writhes under the blow of a rod. But '
)U had no word to offer in his vindi
cation. Ho had williilly slated that
