LANCASTER IA1LY UNTELL1GENCEK, FRIDAY; JANUARY 30, 1880.
ted in -court anil tbc act of 1836 took away
all powers of courts te punish, as con cen
tempts, publications out of courts he
passed te the second subject of consid
eration the rules te disbar. Fer the
same reasons as lcfere given, .it was un
necessary te consider the question as te
whether there was any breach of profes
sional fidelity in what occurred in court.
It seemed te be admitted that there was
none. Hence it was only necessary 10 ex
amine the question as te whether a cjurt
had power te summarily punish a lawyer,
for an alleged libelleus publication, made
as au editor, concerning a case in which
he was net interested in any professional
way, and which was ne:
Upen this most vital part of the case he
adopted the line of argument above given
and quoted from a most exhaustive brief,
involving probably a hundred English and
American authoritative judicial opinions.
In the course of his argument he said :
" I claim that when I became a lawyer I
did net lese a single right of citizenship.
I claim it is my right outside of the court
loom te .speak of any judge or court as
any ether citizen. If this were net se
hew pewci less members of the bar would
be in discussing the merits of aspirants te
the judgeship. While ignorant editors or
the meanest laymen could discuss this
matter the lawyers best qualified te speak
concerning and most deeply interested in
it could make no criticism upon a corrupt
or unfit judge, who aspired te re-election,
lest they be arraigned at his bar and sum
marily stricken down in their profession."
Judge Patterson : It cannot be assumed
that any criticism is meant in the authori
ties quoted except such as calls in question
the integrity of the court. Te ordinary
criticism it is of course liable, but when its
integrity is attacked its powers are larger.
Mr. .Shapley : I will try and convince the
court that it has no power even in such
cases, beyond its presence, te punish offi
cers of court, except as it may punish any
ether citizen. Au attorney's office is his
property net te be taken from him upon
a charge made by a court, determined by
a judge as complainant, prosecutor, court
and jury, but only after a constitutional
trial in which the euene shall be legally
In au eloquent and logical conclusion,
Mr. Shapley dwelt upon the relations of
bench and bar, and the importance te the
bench as well as te the bar of maintaining
the independence of the attorney in his
ellice. Te establish the rule that he should
be restricted where all ethers have free
dom would be a stab at Justice, en her
very altar by her own high priest. Te deny
te the great body of educated lawyers,
most competent te judge of the fitness and
integrity of the judiciary, the right te ex
press their opinions of it, at the proper time
and in the proper place, and when and
where all ether people have a right te ex
press such opinion, would be a blew at the
judiciary itself, and at the independence of
the lawyer and the freedom of the press.
Te a remark by Mr. Shapley that nearly
all leading newspapers bad some lawyers
en their stall', whom the doctrine depended
en te make these rules absolute would dis
bar, Judge I'attcrsen answered that news
papers tee often discussed legal questions
in a prejudiced and partisan manner.
Te which Mr. Shapley rejoined that such
reports or comments were generally made
by editors who were net lawyers.
After the argument had been finished
Judge Patterson took the papers in the
case and adjourned court until 2 p. in.
Judge Patterson's law, which holds a
lawyer responsible as a lawyer for what he
says as an editor, is novel law, and bad
law. When a lawyer, Who is also an editor,
shall have been formally convicted of crim
inal libel, then he, perhaps, ought te be
disbarred. Hut a lawyer, who cheeses te
be an editor as well, has rights and re
sponsibilities as a lawyer, and rights and
responsibilities as an editor. What wrong
he does as a lawyer be can be punished for
as a lawyer. What wrong he does as an
editor, he can be punished for as an editor.
IJiit it is in conflict with common sense te
assume that he can be punished as a law
yer for what he docs as an editor, and just
as lidiculeus as te assume that he can be
punished as an editor for such violations of
court ethics as he may be guilty of in bis
capacity as a member of the bar.
Contempt or Court.
The case of Messrs. Stcinmau and Hen
sel, editors of tins Lancaster Intklligkn
ckr and members of the Lancaster
county bar, who have been ruled te show
cause why their names should net be
stricken from the list of attorneys, will be
argued at Lancaster te-day. The re
spondents, in their paper, charged that
certain acquittals before Judge Patterson
weie procured by " a prostitution of the
machinery of justice," and intimated that
the judge was a party thereto. This his
honor considers a contempt of court, and
he proposes te disbar the journalistic at
torneys. The common law gave courts
large discretionary powers te punish for
contempt, but in this state their powers in
that respect have been largely curtailed.
It appears te be somewhat an open ques
tion, however, whether these laws are
applicable te attorneys who, as officers of
the court, occupy a relation te it distinct
from ether men, and whether the special
authority of the court ever the as attorneys
will extend te them in their actions in a
The law relative te contempt of court,
and what docs net fall within it, was ex
haustively considered pre and con. in the
impeachment trial of Judge Peck of the
Cnited States district court for the district
of Missouri before the United StatesSenate
in lSul). In this case one Luke E. Law
less, a practicing attorney in Judge Peck's
court, published in a St. Leuis paper a
criticism of one of the judge's opinions, and
enumerated eighteen separate errors in law
or in fact into which he claimed the court
had fallen. Judge Peck immediately cited
the publishers of the paper before him te
auswer for contempt, but it appearing that
Lawless was the author of the offending
article, he was substituted, and subse
quently sentenced te one day's imprison
ment, and was suspended from practice at
that court for eighteen months.
On the plea that he was outraged and
oppressed by this action of the court, Law
less memorialized the Heuse of Represent
atives, but th judiciary committee, Daniel
Webster, chairman, reported adversely en
his petition After Webster's transfer te
the Senate Geerge McDuffic of Seuth Car
olina took up the matter in behalf of Law
less, and finally the Heuse voted te im
peach Judge Peck for a high misdemeanor.
James Buchanan, of Pennsylvania, was
chairman of the managers, and William
Wirt senior counsel for Judge Peck. By a
vote of twenty-one te twenty-two the Sen
ate refused te sustain the impeachment,
.Mr. Webster's name appearing among
these who voted net guilty.
It appears te have been settled in this
case that it is the inherent power of all
courts te vindicate themselves against
insult and contempt. Disbarring attor
neys forpublicatiens tending te bring the
court into discredit has net been of infre
quent occurrence in this country. The
-propriety of such a measure is one in
2;gard te which men reach conclusions
mere through the natural cast and bias
of their minds than through strictly
logical reasoning. These of whom the
liberty of the press seems of such supreme
moment that its occasional license should
be winked at, sooner than its perfect free
dem imperiled, will incline te one view of
the case, while these who sec in the re
spect paid te Law and the authority exer
cised by judicial tribunals the best guar
antees of stability and safety, will
be slew te approve anything
which tends te compromise or
belittle the courts or the judges. If a d
cisien is founded in error it can be re
versed ; if in corruption, the judges can be
removed and punished, but te allege error
and corruption before the public, or ether
wise te denounce the judiciary, is out te
invite a disregard of the law and the man
dates of the court, and prompt men te set
up against them their own untutored judg
IIew It Strike Him.
Judge Patterson of Lancaster county has
arrested the editors of the Lancaster Ix-
tem.igencek, who both happeu te be
members of the bar, for editorial ar
ticles criticising his action as a judge.
Though they published the article as
editors, Judge Patterfen wishes te held
them responsible as lawyers for an infrac
tion of the dignity of the court. It strikes
us mat ins Hener lias done mere te impair
respect for his court by his arbitrary pro
ceedings tl an could be done by all the
newspaper articles that ever were written.
Waked up tl'IVrenc Passenger.
Democratic Sentinei, Kittanning, Pa.
A Judge Patterson, of Lancaster, has
seen lit te take umbrage at the editors of
the Intklligkncer of that city for a
criticism printed in that paper recently, in
reference te the proper administration of
justice in Judge Patterson's quarter ses
sions court. His honor directed an order
te issue te Messrs. Steinman and Hensel,
the editors of the paper, who are also
lawyers, te show cause, why they should
net be stricken from the list of attorneys
for contempt of court ! Contempt of court,
in criticising the acts of a district attorney
and a judge of the court tlneugh a news
paper ! This is an unparalleled procedure
in a court of justice ; ami is net author
ized either by the law or the constitution.
On the contrary this very right
is guaranteed by act of Assembly and the
organic law. Judge Patterson must think
himself the Czar of all the Lancasters and
that attorneys have no rights and editors
no privileges beyond that of vcssals, that
he in his supreme dignity is bound te re
spect. If Judge Patterson has been wrong
ed he lias his remedy like all ether .citi
zens. It lie has been libeled let him pros
ecute for libel. If he has been slandered,
let him sue for slander, just like ether
men, and let a jury of his countrymen de
termine the extent of the injury he has or
may sustain from the publication of the
proceedings in his court and the comments
thereon. If he is simply mad, and wishes
te vent his spleen upon the editors of the
Intklmeiznckk he has "put his feet in
it " most effectually ; and has evidently
"awakened up the wrong passengers."
The Ifrewn-Myers Nuptial.
In yesterday's iNTELLiacscEii were
briefly noticed the nuptials of Mr. Clement
IJ. Brown, of Philadelphia, and Miss Emily
Myers of Norwood, near Columbia. The
ceremony took place in the Presbyterian
church, the pastor, Rev. Jehn McCoy, offi
ciating, assisted by Rev. Dr. Heffman, of
Philadelphia. The party in attendance at
church was very large and brilliant, em
bracing the most select society of Colum
bia and Lancaster, and many friends from
Philadelphia, Washington and ether cities.
The bride was elegantly attired and was
attended by the following named brides
maids : Miss Clara B. Myers (sister of
the bride), Miss Davenport, of Erie,
Pa. ; and Miss Mess, of Washing
ton, Pa., all of whom looked charm
ing. At the conclusion of the wedding
services a reception was given at Norwood,
where a magnificent banquet, arranged by
Augustine, of Philadelphia, was spread.
The presents te the bride were many and
costly, embracing gems, silverware,
bronzes, &c, &c. Among the guests
were Hen. Jehn W. Ferney, editor
of Progress, Alexander Brown, Phil
adelphia, Mrs. Mess and daughter, Wash Wash
ten, D. C, Rev. Dr. Heffman and wife,
Philadelphia, Samuel Schech, Columbia,
and scores of ethers. The reception lasted
from 2:"i0 te e:50 p. m., at which time the

delphia. Te-day they go te New Yerk,
and their wedding trip will take in Bosten
and ether places of interest.
