COURT PRACTICE RECALLED
Recall of the judiciary has been
tested in San Francisco, and it got
there, largely through the support of
the women, but it would be a mis
take to attribute Judge Weller's re
call to his personal shortcomings.
Really, what has been recalled is a
judicial practice. The police court of
San Francisco has been too lenient
in the matter of fixing bail for men
accused of offenses against girls, and
too many ofthe guilty have escaped
punishment in consequence.
No one will dispute that this judi
cial practice was wrong. Indeed, the
San Francisco courts themselves
acknowledged this by tightening up
in requiring bail, even before Weller's
fate was known. The women took to
the recall as the quickest, surest way
of righting the wrong, and they are
to be congratulated upon their suc
cess. They made one great mistake,
however, and that was in hooting
Judge Weller off the platform of their
meeting, after inviting him to defend
himself. Even accused judges have
a right to a hearing. But the people,
even the dear, good female portion
of the people, are bound to make
some mistakes, when aroused against
institutions upon which they have re
lied for substantial justice.
The point which we would give
emphasis in this matter is that even
the serious endeavor for the recall
forced the desired reform in court
procedure some time before the vot
ing settled the judge's fate. Pdpular
hostility, throughout the country, is
not directed at the law or its execu
tives so much as at the way the law
