The Works Of Robert G. Ingersoll, Volume 10, LEGAL.
Quote:
For those who like courtroom drama, here are Ingersoll’s Opening and Closing Remarks, and some of his arguments, on the most famous trials of his career--most significantly, the famous Star Route Trials which stretched over 2 years, revealing high government corruption in the U.S. Post Office's granting of over 10,000 lucrative rural postal routes to private contractors during America's westward expansion. Col. Ingersoll was leading counsel for the defense. By countless reports, his knowledge of the law, prodigious memory of the facts extending to the minutest details without referring to the record, his impregnable logic, forensic power and lucid statements, almost infallible judgment, his remarkable ability as an orator that kept the courtroom spellbound, his uniform fairness, tact candor, and matchless summing up, are vividly captured here in the opening and closing remarks of these two trials. "He absolutely made no mistakes", said one federal judge after the trial. This volume also contains 3 shorter trial summations of special note: the Munn Trial, the Davis Will Case, and the Russell Case. This is the entirety of Volume X, Dresden Edition, pub. 1900. ~ Summary by Michele Fry, Read by Librivox volunteers.

    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here
      To find a section to record, simply look at point 5 below. All Sections without names beside them are "up for grabs." NOTE: If one story is divided into two or three sections, for consistency sake, please consider reading them all. Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section(s) you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6 thru 8 below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your section(s) will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do a claimed section, for whatever reason, just let the BC know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.

    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/38813 (From there, find the link to Volume X)
    5. If this is your first recording, please let the BC know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Level of prooflistening: special – (I will DPL all sections except for my own, and will follow along with the text).
      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening!

      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

      Magic Window:



      BC Admin
      [size=50]===========================================

      ============================================
      Genres for the project: *Non-fiction, Legal
      Keywords that describe the book: BC will add these as the project advances: legal, court cases, star route trials, munn trial, russell trial, davis will trial, orators, agnostic, infidel

    6. BEFORE recording: Please check the Recording Notes: http://librivox.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=6427#6430

      Set your recording software to:
      Channels: 1 (Mono)
      Bit Rate: 128 kbps
      Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz

    7. DURING recording:

      NOTE TO READERS: To ensure uniformity throughout the project, please pronounce "Indicted as "in-dye-ted", and "Indictment" as “in-dyte-ment.”

      [b] Record between 0.5 to 1 second of silence at the beginning of the recording!


      Make sure you add this INTRO to the beginning of your recording:
      START of recording (INTRO).
      • "Chapter #, Part # (as shown in MW) of The Works Of Robert G. Ingersoll –Volume 10, Ingersoll’s [TITLE AS SHOWN IN THE BOOK, NOT THE ABBREVIATED TITLE IN THE MW] (for example, [i]Ingersoll’s CLOSING ADDRESS TO THE JURY IN THE FIRST STAR ROUTE TRIAL), Part # of # (Ex, Part 5 of 7) This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information, or to volunteer, please visit: librivox DOT org"[/i]
      • If you wish, say here, or at the end: "Read by [your name], [city, your blog, podcast, web address]"
        Then say: Part #. (Part 5) Then read the text.
        OUTRO: This ends Chapter #, Part # of # (ex. Part 5 of 24) (for the last part, just say End of Chapter #)
      • At the end of the book, say (in addition):
        "End of "The Works of Robert G. Ingersoll, Volume 10 – Legal."
      There should be 5 seconds silence at the end of each recording.
      Please remember to check this thread frequently for updates!
    8. AFTER recording
      Need noise-cleaning?
      Listen to your file through headphones. If you can hear some constant background noise (hiss/buzz), you may want to clean it up a bit. The new (free) version 1.3.3. of Audacity has much improved noise-cleaning. See this LibriVox wiki page for a complete guide.
      Save files as MP3, 128kbps
      Save your file as: (best to copy and paste the bold text below):
      rgingersollvol10legal_##_ingersoll_128kb (all lower-case) where ## is the Section Number

    9. Example ID3 V2 tags It is not necessary to add ID3 tags (it happens automatically at cataloging). However, if you would like to do it, this is how.
      (To find out more about ID3 tags, go to our wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/What_is_ID3)
      Add the following tags to your .mp3 file (how you do this depends on which software you use – if you are unsure about ID3 tags, send me a message).
      Please mind upper and lower case! It is best to copy and paste!
      Artist: Robert G. Ingersoll
      Title: as shown in MW
      Album: The Works of Robert G. Ingersoll, Volume 10 - LEGAL
      Please ignore tags for Genre and Track Number - these will be filled in automatically at the cataloguing stage.

Hi - I would be happy to MC this for you. Will set it up tonight. :D
EDIT: what special kind of prooflistening? Just to follow along with the text? I mean this is not word perfect, right?

Oh, Thank you thank you, Phil. "Special" just means I will read along with the text and point out if anything is missing. No, not Word Perfect.

I've got all the chapters ready for the MW, and have already begun recording the Munn Trial myself. It is so exciting to read Ingersoll again. Several other readers are waiting for this project. Perhaps you'll join in too. BTW, thank you for the referral to the leader of the Freethought Society of Baton Rouge. I've been in touch and plan to attend a meeting and introduce them to LV's collections.

Michele, there is no place in the first post to put the code that generates the Magic window. It normally is right after the PL section and looks like
[MW]xxxx[/MW]

Did you perhaps erase it by accident?
EDIT: I stuck it in myself and it seems to have worked fine.

No idea about that. Are we good to go, or not?

Yes. I added it back manually and it seemed to work. The template has it built in but it was missing and confused me.

I tried to add myself in as a reader and it got stuck going round and round for an hour and wouldn't work.

EDIT. It's working fine now. I must have pushed the wrong button :D

Please let me know if anything else seems strange or odd, it may be necessary to start fresh. Let's hope not, eh?.
EDIT: I will leave this in the Launch Pad for few days to let more people see it, is that OK? or would you prefer moving it to Readers Wanted?

I have filled in the MW just now and it all "took" just fine. So I presume it's all okay. Let me check it over tomorrow when I'm not so tired before we try moving it to readers wanted.

I have begun reading "Closing Address to the Jury in the Second Star Route Trial".
Fascinating!

I would like to claim parts 15, 16, 17 and 18.

Hi Michele, sign me up for section 38. I'm afraid all the others are way too long for me. :)
