Says Gear, May
WILDER AND FREAR WERE IN COMMISSION
The hearing of .the Hlgashl habeas
corpus case before tho Supreme Court
this morning brought forth some ex
ceedingly Interesting argument by
Judge Gear relative to tho alleged dis
qualification of Chief Justice Frcnr to
11 in the caie, ns he, according to tho
limine Journal, approved of tho Act
Involved In the case while It was In
the hands of the Judiciary Committee
of tho House. Incidentally Ocar also
touched on the famous llartwcll deci
sion In the Notley case, though this
part of the matter will be more espe
cially gone Into this afternoon.
When the hearing opened Ocar stat
ed that the Hlgashl matter would by
stipulation be heard on the record of
-tho Chun iloon habeas corpus case,
in which Judge Humphreys was senior
counsel. He therefor wanted Humph
toys associated with him In tho Hl
gashl case and expected him to arguo
tin tho question of the defendant's be
ing entitled to n trial by Jury, on
which Humphreys had thoroughly fa
Humphreys stated that ho did not
consider himself as counsel In the III
cashl matter and would not argue, es
pecially as his attitude on tho question
pf disqualification, which was one of
the leading issues In the case, was dia
metrically opposite to Gear. Oear's at
tltudc was that It was repellant to
hac a Judge sit In a case in which he
had been counsel for ono of the par
ties. Humphreys, on tho other hand,
thought that It would be a great deal
more repellant to, have the Supreme
Court enact a statute whero none ex
isted It was his opinion that Judge
llartwcll was qualified to sit In tho
After a shoit spat between Gear and
Vrosser regarding tho terms of tho

uould go ahcAd with tho matter with

would be eliminated. Gear then Bald

decided that ho was not, no -argument
On the Notley caso need be gono Into.
"You don't consider that Mr. Frcar's
position Is-the samo as If ho had been
counsel In the-caso?" asked Wilder.
"I consider tho cases exactly simi
lar," answered Gear. "Ho stood In tho
same position by giving advice to tho
committee of tho Legislature ns an at
torney would to a client "
"Don't J on draw a distinction be
tween having expressed nn opinion and
being of counsel?" asked Wilder.
Gtar said that In some cases tliero
hai n distinction, but he could see
uone In this caso, where a Justlco gavo
an opinion of law on an Act to thoso
Interested In the Act. The question
ns to whether a fco was paid or not
bad nothing to do with tho matter.
"Out I can tell you right now that I
never expressed my opinion on that
net as cither an attorney or a Judge,''
Slid Krear. "I was consulted mcrcl)
as nti individual."
"I cun'l tco how you can say that
nu wrro consulted merely as on In
dividual,'' unswercd Gear. "If a man
carcfl to me for an opinion and I then
went on the other stdo of tho caso,
would that not bo grounds for disbar
ment. Conld t any that I had been
miiHUltfd merely as an Individual." .
Ocar wen. on to say that tho legisla
tive commltieo Tiad reported that it
lin.t ' imulted members of tho Su
preme Court. Ho did not sco how
1'rear could glvo an opinion as an In
dhlilual, when ho held his position as
Chief Justlco at tho time.
"That brings It down to tho question
whether you are reljlng on tho expres
sion of nn opinion or tho relations of
nn I'ttornoy and client," Bald Frcnr.
Gear answered that ho thought that
the relations in this caso wcro similar.
"Of course, tho Chief Justlco cannot
practice law," ho stated.
"Furthermore tho statuto proventa
lilm from doing so," said Wilder.
"That shows tho -vlco of tho system,"
responded Gear. "Ho cannot practlco
law .and still ho can give his opinion
In matters of legislation."
"Tho statuto expressly provides ho
can do that," said Wilder.
Ocar answered that then that statuto
should bo repealed. No Judge, should
draw up a bill or be consulted on tho
matter of legislation.
"Still how docs that disqualify him?"
Prosser asked If Gear's argument
would not also apply to tho Hevlsed
Laws which was compiled partly by
Wilder and Frear.
Ocar said that that question would
undoubtedly be argued soon by more
pblo counsel than ho. Able counsel
