There is supposed to be no respect of antecedents in the re public, and the son of a rag-gatherer can by energy and application rise to the highest position afforded by our institutions with the same certainty as the son of a senator or the son of a millionaire." The framers of our con stitution intended that the laws should be the same for every one. But with all our boasted liberty, would it not be well for our public men to pay some attention to our courts and sys tem of trials V To an observant mind it would seem that we are FAST DRIFTING AWAY from the teachings of...
