Judge Cooley is one of those vhose toil has been incessant and lis has become more arduous as his fears and fame have advanced. His iterary labors as editor, compiler, ecturer and original writer on legal themes have been stupendous, and upon his "Constitutional Limitations," "Law of Torts" and "General Principies of Constitutional Law in the United States," he could have safely based a claim to only a few of his contributors to the store of legal knowledge. At 67, however, we find him busied with the trying duties incident to the chairmanship of the interstate commerce commission and in the midst of them he has broken down. His services in that capacity have been invaluable but in performing them he has overtaxed a constitution impaired perhaps by 40 years of constant work. - Minneapolis Tribune.
