against Sutherland for having com

Congress will bo called iijon ear
ly in the session to discover and put
in force soino methods of relieving
tho supremo court docket of its
enormous burden of cases. When
the court opened its prcsont term it
found over 1!100 cases awaiting final
action. Without tho filing of an
additional case Ihe regular terms
for three years would be occupied
in clearing the docket. Hut every
your increases the nvcrage number
of eases filed. Widening business
transactions start legal questions
that as yet have not been answered
by tho courts. The supremo court
is inadequate to consider half of
thom. As it is, suitors wait for
years to bo hoard or, warned by the
example of others, rather suffer in
justice than ask the court for a de
cision that may not bo rendered in
