Lawyers of long standing at the
bar have been sidetracked for a
man who has been admitted only
a few years and has had but lim

of the phases brought to light by

but these enumerated are the
most important at present They
are the ones which are receiving
the most attention on the street
corners and in the law offices.
Only a few years ago Schuebel
was admitted to the bar. and
then, through political pull, was
elected justice of the peace for
a term. Later he ran for office,
but conditions had changed and
he was defeated. His promotion
over the heads of barristers of
long standing also causes a feel
