NOMINATION OF JUDGES
-J!1 1 ... , r
The plan to noinlnnto judges by po
litical committees Is being fought bit
terly by lawyers.
Tower of nomination for ofllec
should not rest with any body or com
mittee," said Johu M. Cameron, librar
ian of the Chicago Uar association In
voicing opposition to the Duck bills
now pending In the upper houso of tho
Illinois legislature, bills which tend to
revise the present election laws. "I
do not think tho Buck plan Is a good
one. It would not tend In any wny to
Improve the Judiciary, but would leave
the power of the bench to a fow bosses."
The bills have been reported from
the state Judiciary committee of tho
senate and are awaiting action by the
upper branch of tho general assembly.
One of tho bills seeks to put tho ju
diciary in politics, according to somo
experts, (placing tho nomination of
Judges nt tho mercy of ward and pre
cinct committeemen. The county con
vention, under tho Buck bills relating
to judges, would havo authority to se
lect delegates to the state, Judlclnl and
district conventions to nominate- candi
dates for circuit court branches in ju
dicial districts composed of one county
and candidates for judges of tho Su
perior Court of Cook County.
Charles S. Cutting, chairman of tho
Bar association's commltteo on tho ju
diciary, said that politics should be
eliminated In every wny possible from
the election of judges.
"I am strongly in favor of nonparti
san election of judges," he said. "It
has always been the caso in my ex
perience that a judgo has had to ally
himself with some political party. Tho
fruther we can get away from that tho
bettor off we will be. I nm opposed
to a primary systom of electing
judges and think that we should, as
far as poslblc, eliminate politics from
Levy Mayer expressed himself as ut
terly opposed to tho present primary
"My convictions nro strong on tho
subject," ho said. "I havo not read
the Buck bills, but if they do not con
form to my ideas, I am against them.
I am utterly opposed to tho present
In bo far as it affects judicial nomina
tions. I am against tho primary for
judges. I am also against tho partisan
party label for judges. To mako It
necessary that a candldato for a Judge
ship shall first run at n primary of bin
uarty, and, It ho gets tho nomination,
go before tho people again at tho reg
ular election, is an utterly bad sys
tem. Self-respecting lawyers, who nro
ablo and ambitious, arc, as a rulo, un
willing and unablo to mako two cam
paigns. Tho result of tho primary
system in my opinion has stunted
rather than Increased tho caliber of
tho bench. Candidates for judges
should bo selected by petition, signed
by, say, D per cent of tho voters. If
we must have a convention let tho con
vention hare tho right also to nomi
nate the judges.
"In this way we should havo peti
tion as well as convention candidates.
But, by all means, cut out tho primary
In judicial elections.

The So-Called Legal Fraternity
Rotten With Alleged Lawyers,
Who Live Upon the Sorrows
Tho Chicago legal fraternity needs
a purgative. It Is too full of crooks
and blackmailers who aro living upon
tho misfortunes of others. Fellows
who have given up nil sorts of jobs
whero they had an opportunity to get
hold ot other people's troubles, ltko
discharged nnd discredited former
assistant public attorneys, and other
vermin of that Ilk aro reported to bo
thriving Just now. One long-haired,
spindle-shanked scoundrel, who held
an official Job long enough to get on
both sides of a certain divorce case,
Is reported to havo qulto a meal
ticket working both sides of it. He
Is only ono of many. This class of
vermin is boosted and aided by cer
tain "reform" associations, somo of
which are paid out of tho public
funds nnd nro "authorized" black
mailers. Tho exposure of these frauds is cer
tain to come, and will shake tho
daylights out of the logal crooks,
who now fatten on human misery.

YOU ARE JUST AS
OLD AS YOUR SPINE
Even back ns far as Coasar's time
this eaylng was used. In later years,
men substituted for it "A man's Just
as old as ho feels". Taking tho two,
nnd combining tho meaning, wo havo
tho truo expression and Chiropractic
interpretation "A man's Just as old
as his Splno allows him to fool."
Tho spinal column is tho main con
duit through which tho nervo cables
pass from tho brain, and from which
tho tiny feeders aro distributed to
every portion of tho body. If through
abnormal curvature, tho bones ot the
spinal column obstruct tho free flow
of tho health-giving currents from the
brain to tho bodily organs, disease re
sults in tho organs so affected. Tho
Chiropractor adjusts tho causo ot tho
trouble, removes tho pressure on tho
norvos without tho uso ot Drugs or
Knife. This allows Nature to build
up tho diseased organs or tissues. It
thero is any abnormal condition pres
ent in your body which is causing yon
suffering, lot Chiropractic bring back
normal conditions bo you may again
onjoy good health. F. H. Soubold,

Important information concornlng
tho registration of Ltborty Loan bonds,
as given out by tho bond department
of tho Federal Reserve Bank of Chi
cago contains the following quotation
from a letter from tho Treasury de
partment: "With referonco to accepting sub
scriptions for bonds to bo reglstored
in tho namos of persons giving only
initials rathor than tho full name, I
havo to say that It is tho intent ot tho
Department, not for Its own sako, but
for tho sako of holders of registered
bonds, to havo thom registered in such
manner ns to onablo tho oald holders,
or their legal representatives, to dls
poso ot them In the simplest and
readiest manner. Bonds issued to
womon under their initials, or under
tho initials of their husbands, aro not
readily transforablo In caso of tho
death ot tho holder.
"Though letters of administration
would be issued In thp legal name of
tho deceasod, and tho bonds would bo
inscribed in hor name, under hor in
itials, or those of hor husband, as the
case might bo. Tho lotters of admin
istration and tho bonds would not
agroo as to the name, and therofore
the administrator ot Mrs. Sarah A.
Smith, say, would havo to prove that
sho and Mrs. Thomas W. Smith (or
Mrs. S. Smith) wore ono and tho same
person. It is to avoid troubles of this
charactor that tho Department has in
sisted on reoelvlng the logal name ot
persons subscribing for registered
"Of course, tho Department cannot
rofuso to Issue bonds undor initials It
tho partlos intorosted Insist upon It,
but It is requested that you, in ell
coses where it is possible, insist on
receiving tho full names of persons
subscribing for registered bonds."
