cute, cometh before the said above named august and distinguished

Association in annual session Assembled, to hear and determine

divers trespasses and grievous misconduct of its members, in his

of said, The Colorado Bar Assoolation, did by day and by night toil

and labor as strenuously and assiduously as the demands of their

client or clients, as the case may be, from time to time



and did continuously tax their ingenuity in devis ing the seductive

jolly for application to their client or clients aforesaid; and did

for compensation other than and beyond the customary honorarium,

when obtainable by force of arms

or otherwise, engage with one

another in lowly wrangles

and disputes concerning matters equally

beyond the knowledge of either disputant, and did by divers other

reprehensible and insidious practices, waste the intellectual fecundity and wear the brain matter of the said, the flower of the Colorado bar, against the rules of good conduct in such case made
