ROBERTSON EXPOSES CONTEMPT TALK'
(By A. Q. M. ROBERTSON)
The excuse given by the Advertiser for not accenting John
Catltcart's invitation to go' to trial in the libel iuits i .nothing
wore than a miserable subterfuge. , ,vt tv ,
The Advertiser pretends tint it is afraid of committing con
tempt of court, and would have the imblio believe .that if the
trial of one of the pending cases should be commenced it could
not continue the publication of libellous articles. N '
That is not true. ,
Our statute, in so far as it is in point here, defines con
tempt of court as "publishing animadversions onthe evidence or
proceedings in a pending trial tending to prjtraice the people
respecting the same, and to obstruct and prevent the adminis
tration of justice, or by knowingly publishing an unfair report
of the proceedings of a court."
It is clear that, although the statute would 'pi ohibit improp
er comment on the pending trial, the publication of afresh libel
would not be regarded as contempt of court. ,,
I venture to say that the Advertiser's desire for delay is
due largely to the abience of Mr. W. A. Kinney.
The Advn'tiscr figures that with the ex-chairman of the
Democratic party as counsel and a couple of Democrats on the
jury it may be able to prevent Mr. Cathcart obtaining the ver
dict to which he is entitled.
Unfortunately, there" is no wav in which Hr. Cathcart can
iorce a trial before election day. The law allows the defend
ants (in this case the Gazette Co. and Smith) twenty days to
answer, and until answers arc filed, no trial can be had.1,
