COURT QUASHES THE
Judge Arclibald, However, Dissents from
the Finding of Ills Brothers.
HAS NO JURISDICTION IN TUB CASE
Judges KthvnrUs nnd Gunstcr Sny
Thnt livon TIiohrIi tho Petition Wns
Worthy or Consideration, It Could
Not He Considered lis It Is Not
Within the Jurisdiction oi the Court.
Judge Archbald Criticises tho Other
Judges in n Ilnthcr Cnustic Manner.
The Wntson petition to have John R.
Jones' nomination nullified was yester
day quashed by the local court. Judge
Archbald dissented from the finding,
saying that ho could not agree with
the other Judges that the court had
no Juilsdiction in the matter, nnd that
the petition wa3 defective.
The three judges made brief speeches
in delivering their opinions, as follows:
Judgo Gunstcr In the matter of the
nomination of John R. Jones for district
attorney, In which a motion was mado
yesterday before my brethren to quash
tho petition, they infotm me that they
were not ablo to agiec, nnd It would bo
necessary for me to give my opinion In
tho matter. I do so with somo hesitation
bocauso I did not hear tho arguments of
counsel, but tho question depends entirely
upon the petition boforo us.
The act of 1S91 Is very clear and speclllo
In regard to wlio has tho right to llio
certificates of nomination and nomina
tion papers. Tho practice, of this, court
has boen somewhat without any rule. Of
course we are nover called upon to decldo
a question until it comes before us. Tho
question now before us is whether or not
wo hnvo Jurisdiction over this matter In
tho form In which It Is presented to us.
There teems to be tho impiesslon tl"at
wo have power to Inquire Into all mitters
concerning nomlnutlon papers and cer
tificates of nomination.
I do not think so. The fouith eeotion
of tho act of 1833 provides that "anj ob
jections filed to a nomination certificate
or paper on account of tho party or po
litical appellation used therein or In
volving the right as defined by sections
two and three of this act to file such cer
tificate or paper, shall bo decided by the
court of common pleas on hearing as here
inafter provided" The sixth section of
the act of 1S03 provides that, "If tho couit
docldo 'that tho certlilcato or piper ob
jected to was not filed b the parties en
titled under this act to tile the same, It
shall be wholly void; but If It be adjudged
defective only, tho court shall indicate
tho matters, as to which It requires amend
ment and ttra time within which such
amendment must be made."
QUESTION OF JURISDICTION.
So that the only question that we havo
an j Jurisdiction over is whether or not
the certificate is filed by the party who Is
entitled to lllo It, and the only objection
we can consider arc objections filed to a
nomination certificate or paper on account
of the party or political appellation used
therein or Involving the light to lllo
such certlilcato or paper. Tho petition
which is now before us asks us to Inquire
into tho qualifications of the candidate
named therein and tho motlvo which
ptompted the delegaUsat the Republican
convention in voting for him. 1 think we
have no power or Jurisdiction to Inquire
Into It, and therefore I am in favor of
quashing the petition.
Judge lldwaids As Judge Gunster has
stated my brother, Judge Archbald, utvl
my&elf could not agree as to the proper
pioceedlng In thU. cute, 1 havo examines!
tho petition carcfullj and most of the de
elslons of the coiuts of common pleas In
Pennsylvania touching the possible scope
of our inquiry Into the actions of nomi
nating conventions. It is true that tho
act of assembly If it Is followed literally
confines us to a very narrow and circum
scribed limit. Wo can only inquire Into
two things. These have already been
stated by Brother Gunstcr, and tho sec
tion which states what woaio to do when
the matter Is brought to a court of com
mon pleas states that we havo tho power
either to adjudgo tho certificate valid or
to declare It wholly void, and that the
only thing we can inquire into In doing
thut Is tho question whether the cer
tificate Is filed by parties entitled to file
It Is truo that In the Foley case, cited
by tho attorney for tho petitioner in this
caBe, that notwithstanding tho circum
scribed limits designated by the act of ns
semCly we had tho pow er to inquire Into
tho question whether a delegate to a con
vention was regularly and legally elected.
I vvroto tho opinion in the Toley case, out
It was written after consultation with
Judge Archbald at least 1 don't remem
ber now that Judge Gunster took any part
In that case there was a contest over
school directors, and It appears from tho
opinion written that tho people who came
to tho polls to vote either for the dele
gates or tho conferred as It may have
been In that case, were not citizens, ev
erybody was allowed to vote, boys, those
who had paid no taxes, foreigners who
had Just arrived In the country, anybody
passing along tho street would bo taken
by tho shoulders and brought In and al
lowed to vote. That was a question that
went to tho regularity of tho election of
tho delegate to tho convention, and
wo claimed then that under tho act
of assembly , and I claim now, wo
had the power to ascertain whether dele
gates to a nominating convention were or
were not regularly elected,
VAGUD AND INDEFINITE.
The caso docs not decldo any more than
that. But If a delegate Is icgularlj elect
ed to a nominating convention wo have
no power under the act of 1S'J3 to Inqulro
into his motives as to why ho votes for
ono man for an ofllco rather than for nn
other man. Not only would I quash this
petition because wo havo no power or
jurisdiction to inqulro Into tho subject
matter of It, because tho petition does not
allege any irregularity In the election of
delegates to this nominating convention,
but I would also quash the petition bo
causo It Is so vague, so Indefinite, so abso
lutely void of all specific allegations.
Tho candidate whoso nomination Is at
tacked is charged with ono of tho most
serious crimes known In our statuto
books, a crlmo for which tho constitution
makers then selves havo seen fit to pre
fccrlbo tho penalty, which Is disqualifica
tion from ever holding office hereafter.
A petition alleging such serious trans
gressions ought certainly to givo somo
facts, there ought to havo been In this
petition tho names of somebody that ic
celved money or of somebody that of
fered money; there ought to bo some af
fidavit from somebody outside of tho nf
ls appended to tho petition, which would
establish, prima facie at least, a fact
which could be Inquired into.
But this petition, as I have already
stated. Is so general, so vague, so indefi
nite, and so worthless in my opinion, as a
a paper upon which to predicate Impor
tant action, that It ought to be quashol
on that ground alone. But taking that
ground and tho want of Jurisdiction to In
qulro into tho subject matter of it, tho
petition Is quashed.
Judgo Archbald Upon the opinion ex
pressed by my brethren tho motion to
quash must prevail, but I cannot allow
this action to pass without expressing my
dissent from it, I agree with them in tho
matters whloh we havo consulted over
in two particulars. I do not see that we
can go Into the qualification or disquali
fication of the candidate whoso nomina
tion la contested hero; neither do I see
that wo could declaro that somebody else,
such aa tho petitioner, had been nomi
nated in his stead. But I certainly cannot
agree that this petition is either beyond
our Jurisdiction or that it Is vague and In
definite. A ncrrlnatton procured by viola-
uon oi mo e:ection laws haa been
ready declared by this court in the Foley
caso to bo Invalid,
That etise, according to tho memoran
dum which I have on my argument book,
was argued before tho court, not beforo
any less than tho whole number. It was
decided contemporaneously with tho con
tested nomination of Mr, Ward, also aris
ing as tho Foley enso did In Lackawanna
township, I was assigned to and did wilto
tho opinion in the Ward case, and Judro
Edwards wroto tho opinion In tho Foley
case, and I fully coincided with him in tho
opinion which ho wrote, nnd how far wo
went In that case I will simply call atten
tion to ns cxprescd by him in that opin
ion. TLAGRANT AND SHAMELESS.
I read from a paragraph In that opin
ion: "Tho evidence taktn in this caso dls
closes a flagrant, shameless nnd total dls
tegard of all election laws. Witness after
witness came upon the stand declaring
that they had voted at tho caucus in tho
Southwest district nt the solicitation of
one person or anoher, and that they weio
no citizens or did not reside In tho dis
trict, or had not paid any taxes, or were
under asie. Tho votes of boys wore ro
celvcil without objection, und the voles
of persons who weio not citizens of tho
United States were Invited and freely re
ceived. Any person walking along the
street at the tlmo of the caucus was lia
ble to be captured by thoEO Interested
in tho result of the caucus, marched up
to tho polls, n ticket placed In his hand,
nnd the Vote lecelved without any ques
tion. A sutllclent number of crimen against,
the election laws has been proven to keep
our courts bury for a whole term and to
add greatly to the census of our Jail or
penitentiary. Caucuses and primaries held
with such utter disregard of all law
should receive the severest condemnation
from courts and all law-abiding citizens.
An election held according to such meth
ods degenerates' Into u. farce and crime,
and the claim of any person to un ofllco
from such a tainted source should be dis
This leeelvcs my hearty approval, It
did at tho time, and my opinion has not
vailed. It was tho declaration apparent
ly of tho court with regard to how far tho
violation of tho election laws of this
commonwealth were sulllclent to Invali
date a nomination. The same principle
is found constantly niipllcd wheio a mat
ter Is declared to bo a crlm; anything
done In tho face of such a law the law
declares to be Invalid.
It would bo t.ttcrly absurd If a law
could bo violated In that way and tho
offense purlshed as a crlmo and ct tho
act stand. That alho was enfoiced In a
contested election In the CuMck case; It
was enforced recently In an election con
test ailslng In tho borough of Dickson;
that tho obtaining of a nomination by
means of bribery Is an offense against
our law I hardly need to alllrm. 'Ihe ton
stltution makes It not only an offense to
obtain an election by bribery, but by
nomination alto, and the le-sult Is the dis
qualification of tho paity who obtains it
In that way. This is enforced by other
statutes upon our statute books. So I
cannot see how In the face of this we can
refuse an examination into that question
upon a matter such as this Is
As I say we already havo done It ve 'y
clearly and upon tho same grounds on
which wo now refuse to cnteitaln this pe
tition. I might ay further that this ques
tion of Jurisdiction or the want of It was
not raided In the argument vesterday. Tho
only question then was as to tho sutll
eleney of tho specifications of the petition,
but of course of we are to meet this ques
tion It Is well to dispose of it at tho out
start At tho same time It Is something
that was not In tho argument as It was
made yesterday. It Is as specific as any
petition for the contest of an election
that has ever been Hied in this court, and
ccitalnly that which is sufficient to con
test an eiectlon Is sufllclent to contest a
nomination, and the seventh and eighth
paragraphs of this speclllrally charge that
tho nomination which Is contested In this
caso was obtained by means of the cor
ruption and brlboiy of a sufficient number
of delegates to securo the nomln itlon. If
a bill of particulars was applied for I
would bo entirely willing to grant It, but
I cannot seo tho legality of tho action of
the court. It seems to mo it Is contrary
to all tho Ideas of the law that have been
linpiessed upon me and contiary to our
own rulings which I now conceive to be
practically reverted. I therofoie direct
my dissent from tho action of the court
to bo noted.
