Says the Adrián Press : Before the Congregational Business Men's class of Ann Arbor, Sunday of last week, personally appeared Prof. Brewstnr in an effort to prove that "fidelity to christian principies is consistent with thé successful practice of thelaw. " His plea for the lawyer was almost pathetic, and it must be conceded that considering the desperate character of his cliënt, it was as eloquent a piece of pettifogging as we have noticed in print in a long time. It. shows what a sublime advocate the professor would be, with the facts as well as rae argument on his side. - Adrián Press.
