By Fred 8. Ferguson
(United Press staff correspondent)
Paris, May -2.-.The big four today
continued consideration of the Aus
trinn peace treaty, including the fi
nancial sections. The treaty, it was
learned, still hag many Incomplete pro
visions. Because of this and because it
is neepsnary to devote much time to
iiinsideratioa of the notes emanating
from the German delegates, it is not
believed likely that the treaty can be
handed to the Austrians before the end
of this wek. and that action may pos
sibly be deferred until next week.

This is appealed from Multnomah coun
ty, with G. it. Bagley as judge. The
case grows out of tho settlement of the
estate Daniel Kunkel, deceased, who in
bis will left a large share of his estate
of aboui $100,000 to Hamuel Kunnel.
There followed a contest on the part of
other heirs as to the disposition of the
property and the law firm of Bernstein
& Solis were retained by Kunkel. Tuu
matter was finally adjusted and thc
claims of the attorneys accepted. But
following the death of Hamuel Kunkel,
his heirs and executors brought suit
SL'ninst the law firm or the return of
7000 in fees, charging that they hau
not "only been exhorbitant in their
charges, but that they had misadvised
thc tged and feeble testator into ac

advantage. They caliamcd that l-X'O
would have been ample compensation
for the service rendered.
Justice llarri. ia reviewing the ca
at length, dealt with tU' ethics and
equity of the relations between attor
ney and client, pointing to the fact
that the amount of compensation could
not justly be gauged entirely by the
time required or labor performer!. Ac
count must be taken of the extent of
benefit derived by the client, as well as
the learning and genius on the part of
the attorney. In this esse the entu
