So that the expenses sow in that District Aro about ten times As Groat As they wore Twenty years ago and nearly four times As great As ten years ago. Now notwithstanding the acknowledged increase in Tho population the Trado he wealth and general Prosperity of to country there is no Ono who will deny tint Tho expenses of our Roarta of Justice Ato out of All proportion. Rapid As spa Fhern our Advance in All Tho Ole Monta of National greatness Tho increase of judicial expo spa has Otsui Pocil. Increase of population s one of the methods by which tvs Are enabled to estimate National Prosperity and yet i Tell you that although in respect to population reality in this country has far exceeded Tho wildest Esli Koloj of imagination although our population has increased since Tho year 1800 at Tho rate of 333 per Vennt. Yol in Tho Samo period the inc Russo of judicial expense of to be paid by the government has been at the rate of 1,237 per cent. This is out of All proportion and demands Al the bands of Tho representatives of Tho Puoplo retrenchment and Reform. Or.

As Well might one dec Ralo the brow of o Skeleton with a diadem Aalo attempt to Grace tins subject with Tropea or figures of rhetoric. I shall therefore Content myself by presenting to the House Somo of the Evila proposed lobe remedied with a Brier Ond explicit statement of Tho general provisions of the Bill now Tudor consideration. 1 have alluded to the increase in our Judi is expenses in a very general by. Allow Molo Lorn the attention of the Rouee to a few of Iho special abuse under the Paceoni Laws for the taxation or costs. Cos in Tho Federal courts Aro taxed in must of the slates mainly under lilo provisions of Iho Aci of 28lh february 1799. In Rogu Lea to some extent Tho fees of marshals Tbs fees of attorneys in Admi rarity cases Only with a per diem of $5 for attend ing court and an annual salary of $200. It allow of Tho court. In Tho Oast against a fall no the papers sent to this office show that or. Shepherd charged a retaining fee As attorney $3 As counsel #5, and for warrant of attorney 37 a cents at each of three terms in Alt for each term $8 37j that or. Hall Mado similar charges for lie Samo amount at each of nine terms hat or. Shepherd and or Hall each charged for april term 1849, making in All charged for retaining fees and warrants of attorney Iho sum of 6100 50. The fees far Brief at Orn Cyl fees and counsel ices attending prepared for trial was also repented twelve times at Cloven terms amounting to $108. In Many other causes Tho re it Laming tuna Oro charged from two to eight times in a cause. In fact it seems to to s general practice to charge Thorn and also Tho Nino Dollar trial fee and tur Many other Mere construction services at each term of Tho court. And in Tho Caso of . Marselis or. Shepherd and or. Hall charged retaining cos though Tho cause had been tried and Tho defendant was convicted before either of Thorn Camo into office and nothing remained to be done except to sentence Tho prisoner. Was a motion to enter a a a and thus terminated the cause it Cost the United Sutee $267 50 attorney s fees to ascertain that there age no cause of action. Allow me air to allude to another knee in now York Tho Case of the United states is. Marsello indicted for stealing letters from the new Yolk net office who was tried and convicted prior to sctt ber 1848. At the october term in 1848, or. District attorney Butler charged the government $10 75. After the conviction or. Shepherd charged $20, at the january term 1840, and or. District attorney Hall Aleo charged $20, at the May term 1849. Each of them charged retaining fees after the conviction and before sentence. In thi9 Oao in which a Convis onion was had before either or. Shepherd or or. Hall had anything to do with the prosecution each of them 1 say charged a retaining fee of $8 37. I hold in my hand the charges for services in the state court of the District attorney of Scheneck lady county in Tho Sute of new York. The amount a for the Ordinary services of a term. It includes the drawing of three indictments i trial and subpoenas and the preparation for trial in shirt pen cases and yet the aggregate amount of for the term is $62 06 whereas the District attorney of the United Sta 09, in the Case against Waiford where he made a motion to enter a Nolle prose gut charged $96 12� at one term and in All $267 50. The clerks Are in ibo habit in the state of new York of making searches at each term of the court and they charge Tho government Larno sir a get Ihil to Fgli look a the a sectional statement 1 will turn the attention of the House for on a moment to the of Erk a fees in the District court for the Southern District of Mississippi and Endeavor to show that these evils Aro Tather National in their character. Here you have 0 8 made for Tho attendance of the clerk on three unfinished cases of bankruptcy amounting to the sum of $310 10, claimed by the clerk and certified by the judge of that court As compensation for his per dem on attending the court. Tho judge of that District certified to the account As follows accounts of William Burns Clork for Bis per diem from May 19, 1815, to november 18, 1848, for 800 Days silting in bankruptcy at $5 per Day $>4,450 four Days on Oiler business 20a no a a a a a Ulvi Ieuv.

Tho compensation of Tho officer of the United state courts then to a great extent depend upon Tho fees allowed under the Bute Fco Bill. Thoro Oro no two state in which Tho Fco Bill Aro similar and it thereto follows that Tho compensation for Tho same services in different in ouch of Tho stale. And so Gront i till inequality that i will Havo but Hub difficulty in convincing the Zilonas of it palpable injustice in those Stales in which no fee Bilu exist the Only compensation that can be procured under Tho decision of Tho attorney general of lilo United slates for services rendered is Tho annual salary and Tho per diem whilst a i will presently show in other state a Liberal compensation is allowed by Tho sult a Fco Bill. Whether in civil of criminal proc cedi Ngy the compensation of an officer of Tho court in the stale of now York would under Tho present a a a Tein be More than 200 per cent above Tho cum allowed for similar services in Roost of Tho Western or mid Dlo states.

Thoro is not another Stato in Tho Union except new York and Louisiana where Tho attorneys Feo in criminal cases is anything like As Large a a in Virginia. In Many of Tho states it is Bolow $10 and in few if my above $25. In new York in Tho your 1849, in the Case of Tho United Stales Dyer under the provisions of the act of Congress of 184v, the Sla tulo of now York of 1840, Tho District attorney in a Proto culion for perjury so construed Tho Law that no charged the government $246 j2�, and his account was certified by the judge whilst under Tho now York statute by which alone to was authorised to charge his Fco would not Havo amounted to Tho Ono Fortieth part of thalcum. I Call attention to the following extract from a let.

The civil fee Bill allowed attorney a and coun not also a retaining fee in each Causa provided counsel was actually employed but prohibited Tho Samo Roan from receiving ices in two a attorney and counsel in Tetamo Causo. The criminal foe Bill did not allow any retaining Feo nor any counsel fees. Both Bills allowed a Folio compensation for drawing ail writ pleading end other papers and proceedings in,.the Progress of s Folio comp is to it my Fly every copy supposed to have been made or necessary land a fee for trial for Cion motion w other Ler Vlco. The civil Lea Bill and the substitution Ofa much lower Ono in it Jaco but Hoto continued to charge As her Otogoro Tho system of cd urging is illustrated by Tho following abstracts of Bills of costs Here then sir you Havo $152 13$ charged against Tho United states in a cause where he attorney concerned under the statute of the state by which he spa bound to Mako out his Bill against the United states was Only entitled to $6 25, in Tho pros Cuton against Anthony Eulac for perjury or. Shepherd the District attorney of now York in 1819, As will to seen by the statement which follows charged Tho Gross sum of $237 12 a and or. Hull his successor charged in the same Case for his services $280 50�?making in Oil $517 g2& attorneys fees in this one Case. I Call the of the House to Tho following items which constitute these Bills Tho United states in Didieo for perjury prior to inc april Lori 1819, Anthony Paulac. J of the states. For making an Index and other general services upon Tho trial where Issue is joined and testimony is Given there is a round Sam of $3 allowed to the clerk. This Loversall Tho services which the clerk til Render in any Oase except those specified in the a Toms of this Bill. For making an Index and other general services in cases where Issue is joined and no testimony a Given he is allowed $2. B in every Cash for making an Index end for taxing costs and other general services where there is a discontinuance or judgement by default to is allowed $1. This compensation is Given to Tho clerks to cover the services performed which Are Noj a enumerated a the of Biff Ems of the Bill. These three items rerun rating for general services afford a larger compensation for such a Ervoes than be state Fea Bills with Ono third added thereto whilst they effectually preclude the accumulation of costs by any ingenious construct it no a equity and admiralty cases Tho labor of the Clork a greatly diminished by the manner provided inf -1---a�?. Are amply paid by Tho Folio compensation. For issuing a subpoena we have allowed Twenty iwo events and for the in portion of each additional name after the first we have allowed fifteen cents this in equal to what is g Ivon in most of Iho state.

Tho fourth Section in Tho Bill prot def fir Tho taking of filse oaths and Tho fifth Section avoid interned doing with the fog Idro slave Law. Another important provision in this Bill in Thia that All Ooala in Casos whore by Law Cusp a Are recoverable in l10 pfc a Ungs i the judge not or decree against the losing in cases in which Tho United slates in a parly Tho marshal shall on the order of to Coart Tho Jnora and Winch pcs Suomi fees a under the prove a.

Tho party claiming Pomponi Salaa from Iho government is required to verify by oath his Eba Rios and on a fair settlement of his accounts at Tho Treasury shall to paid whatever May to due under the Lora a of this Law. This plan is calculated to relieve Tho judges of lilo courts and their ministerial officers As Well As Tho officers of tile Treasury from much embarrassment. I Havo been spoken to by Moro ban Ono of the judge $1.470 the whole number of Days within that period was number of Sab Haiha a a number in very tuner tiran tsp Baths not charged1.880 Yoars a District attorney of Looi Aiana of Ward of $25,090.

Durant who Sucic cod him received for two years $16,321 93, and for three years including Tho two i Lugo just named to has received about $21,000, end he still has a claim against this government which he has urged with singular per male Rico upon Bis claim after recon tag some $21,000 for three year a Oral co in now about 830,0017 against lilo government. For similar services rendered in any state in this Union except in the Stales of new York Virginia and California these services would not have amounted to Ono tenth part of Whit Lias Boon certified Ond allowed by Tho court for his services. 1 we ii Here allude to Trio dec Lohrand eases of Wilson Ond crafts tried with signal ability by a gentleman from alas Sachi Setfa who i am sorry to see has this Day vacated lilt seat on account of sickness or.

For his services during these forty Throo Days to received Tho paltry consideration of $79 , when the marshal claimed for in s services in Iho same cases six thousand and Somo Odd Hundred dollars. With Moro Limo. I might go on and enumerate Many other evils proposed to to remedied by this Bill. I will now very briefly however direct Tho allo lion of. The Alouso to Tho provisions of Tho Bill. First in regard to Tho fees of attorney a solicitor and proctors a attorney a in any Ono term of court. It was thought that this was but poor compensation.

In Many of the states Tho compensation is too Small and Tho effect of to Bill will to let ouch instances to Ralso them while in Olhorn states will very materially diminish them. One of the principal causes of Ftp great increase in Iho judicial expo sos of Tho government i is Tho itemizing of fees. Whenever a great number of items Oro found in a foe Bill the ingenuity of officers claiming compensation Baa Boon taxed to obtain a Dou Bio compensation for Tholf be Iviree.
