TO RILL OF JUDGES
WOODEOW WILSON'S VIEW'S ON EECALL OF JUDGES.
The "Reran is a means of administrative control. If properly
j. reflated and devised it is a means of restoring to administrative
officials -what the Initiative and Referendum restore to legislators
namely, a1 sense of direct responsibility to the people -who choose
-f- them. ,
4- The recall of judges is another matter. Judges are not law-
makers. .They are not administrators. Their duty is not to deter-
mine -what the law shall he, hut to determine what the law is.
Their independence, their sense of dignity and of freedom, is of
the first consequence to the stability of the State. To apply to
them the principle of the Eecall is to set up the idea that deter-
Tnnamw of what the law is must respond to popular judgment.
It is sufficient that the people should have the power to change
the law when they will. It is not necessary that they should di-
rectly influence by threat of recall those who merely interpret
the law already established. The importance and desirability of
the Eecall as a means of administrative control ought not to be
obscured by drawing it into this other and very different field.
KANSAS CITY. Mo.. May S.-Cov-emor
Woodrow "Wilson of New Jersey
was the guest of the Knife and Fork
Club at its banquet this evening. He
said in part:
There can be no mistaking the fact
that we are now face to face with po
litical changes which may have a very
profound effect upon our political life.
Those who do not understand the Im
pending change are afraid of it. Those
who do understand it know that it is
not a process of revolution, but a pro
cess of restoration, rather, in which
there is as much healing as hurt. There
are strain and peril, no doubt, in every
process of change, but the chief peril
comes from undertaking it in the
wrong temper. It lies not in the
change itself so much as in the method
of some of those who promote it. It
is a noteworthy circumstance that in
proportion as the people of the coun
try come to recognize what It is that
renders them uneasy and what It is
that Is proposed by way of reformation
they lose fhelr fear and take on a
certain irresistible enthusiasm.
The American people are naturally a
conservative people. They do not wish
to touch the stable foundations of their
life; they have a reverence for the
rights of property and the rights of
contract which Is based upon a long
experience in a free life in which they
have been at liberty to acquire prop
erty as they pleased and bind them
selves by such contracts as suited
them. No other people have ever had
such freedom In the establishment of
personal relationships or property
rights. They do not mean to lose this
freedom or to impair any rights at all,
but they do feel that a great many
things In their economic life and In
their political action are out of gear.
They have been cheated by their own
political machinery. They have been
dominated by the very instrumental
ities which they themselves created in
the field -of industrial action. The lib
erty of the individual is hampered and
impaired. They desire, therefore, not
a revolution, not a cutting loose from
any part of their past, but a readjust
ment of the elements of their life, a
reconsideration of what it Is just to
do and equitable to arrange In order
that they may be Indeed free, may In
deed make their own choices and live
their own life undominatcd, unafraid,
unsuspicious, confident that they will
be served by their public men and that
the open processes of their government
will bring to them Justice and timely
"What we are witnessing now is not
so much a conflict of parties as a con
test of ideals, a struggle between those
who. because they do not understand
what Is happening, blindly hold on to
what is and those who, because they
do see the real questions of the pres
ent and of the future In a clear, re
vealing light, know that there must be
sober change; know that progress, none
the less active and determined because
it is sober and just, is necessary for
the maintenance of our institutions and
the rectification of our life. In both
the great national parties there are
men who feel this ardor of progress
and of reform, and In both parties
there are men who hold back, who
struggle to restrain change, who do
not understand It or who have reason
to fear It. Undoubtedly the present
moment offers a greater and larger op
portunity to the Democratic party than
to the Republican party, but this Is
not because there are not men In the
Republican party who have devoted
their whole Intelligence and energy to
necessary reform, but because the
.Democratic party as a whole is freer
to move and to act than the Republican
Is and is held back by a smaller and
weaker body of representatives of the
things that are and have been.
"We generally sum up what we mean
"by the reactionary forces by speaking
of them as embodied in the Interests.
By that we do not mean the legitimate
but the Illegitimate interests, those
which have not adjusted themselves to
the public Interest, those which are
clinging to their vested rights as a
"bulwark against the adjustment which
is absolutely necessary if they are to
be servants and not masters of the pub
lic. The chief political fact of the day
Is that the Republican party Is more
closely allied with these interests than
the Democratic party This circum
stance constitutes the opportunity of
the Democrats. They are free to act
and to move in the right direction If
they win "but accept the responsibility
and the leadership. The Democratic
party is more in sympathy with the
new tendencies than the Republican.
Its free forces are the forces of pro
gress and popular reform.
Both parties are of necessity break
ing away from the past, whether they
will or no, because our life has broken
away from the past. The life of Amer
ica is not the life it was twenty years
ago. It is not the life it was ten years
ago. "We liave changed our economic
conditions from top to bottom, and
with our economic conditions has
changed also the organization of our
life. The old party formulas do not fit
the present problems. The old cries of
the stump sound as if they belonged
to a past ace which men have almost
forgotten. The things which used to
be put into the party platforms of
ten years ago would sound antiquated
now. You will note, moreover, that
the political audiences which nowadays
gather together are not partisan audi
ences. They are made up of all ele
ments and come together, not to hear
parties denounced or praised, but to
hear the Interest of the nation discus
sed In new terms the terms of the
We have so complicated our machin
ery of government, we have made it
so difficult, so full of ambushes and
hiding places, so Indirect, that Instead
of having true representative govern
ment we have a great Inextricable
jungle of organization In .Tvening be
tween the people and the processes of
their government, so that by stages,
without intending It. without being
aware of It. we have lost the purity
and directness of representative gov
ernment. What we must devote our
selves to now Is not to upsetting our
Institutions, but to restoring them.
Undoubtedly w should avoid excite
ment and should silence the dema
gogue. The man with power, but with
out conscience, could, with an eloquent
tongue, u ne.carea tor nothing but his
own power, put this whole country into
a flame, because the whole country be
lieves that something is wrong and is
eager to follow those who profess to be
able to lead It away from Its difficul
ties. But it is all the more necessary
that we should be careful who are our
guides. The processes we are engaged
In are fundamentally conservative pro
cesses, if your tree is diseased it Is
no revolution to restore to it the pur
ity of its sap, to renew the soil that
sustains it. to re-establish the condi
tions of Its health. That Is a process
of life, of renewal, of redemption.
There is no ground for alarm, there
fore. We are bent upon a perfectly
definite program, which is one of
health and renewal.
Let us ask ourselves very frankly
what It Is that needs to be corrected.
To sum It all up In one sentence, it Is
the control of politics and of our life
by great combinations of wealth. Men
sometimes talk as if it were wealth
we were afraid of, as if we were Jeal
ous of the accumulation of great for
tunes. Nothing of the kind Is true.
America has not the slightest Jealousy
of the legitimate accumulation of
wealth. Everybody knows that there
are hundreds and thousands of men
of large means and large economic
power who have come by it all perfect
ly legitimately not only, but In a way
that deserves the thanks and admira
tion of the communities they have
served and developed. But everybody
knows also that some of the men who
control the wealth and have built up
the Industry of the country seek to
control politics and also to domlmte
the life of common men In a way in
which no man should be permitted to
In the first place, there is the notori
ous ooeratlon of the bipartisan polit
ical machine; I mean the machine
which does not represent party princi
ple of any kind, but which is willing
to enter Into any combination, with
whatever group of persons or of pol'
tlclans, to control the offices of locali
ties and of states and of the nation it
slf in order to maintain the power ot
those who direct it. This machine is
supplied with Its funds by the men
who use It In order to protect them
selves against legislation which they
do not desire and in order to obtain
the . legislation which is necessary for
the prosecution of their purposes.
rue methods or our legislatures make
the operation of such machines easy
and convenient, for very little of our
legislation Is formed and effected by
open debate upon the floor. Most all
of It is framed In lawyers' offices, dis
cussed In committee rooms, passed
without debate. Bills that the machine
and its backers do not desire are
smothered in committee; measures
which they do desire are brought out
and hurried through their passage. It
happens again and again that great
croups of such bills are rushed through
in the hurried hours that mark the
close of the legislative sessions, when
every one is withheld from vigilance
by fatigue and when It is possible to
do secret things.
When we stand In the presence of
these things and see how complete and
sinister their operation has been, we
cry out with no little truth that we
no longer have representative govern
ment. Among the remedies proposed In re
cent years have been the Initiative and
rf"rendum In the field of legislation
and the recall In the field of adminis
tration. These measures are supposed
to be characteristic of the more radical
programs, and they are supposed to
b- meant to change the very character
of our government. They have no such
purpose. Their intention is to restore,
not to destroy, representative govern
ment. It must be remembered by every
candid man who discusses these mat
ters, tat we are contrasting the oper
ation of the initiative and the referen
dum not with the representative gov
ernment which we possess in theory
and which we have long persuaded our
selves that we possessed In fact, but
In contrast with the actual state of
affairs. In contrast with legislative pro
cesses which are carried on in secret,
responding to the impulse of subsidized
machines and carried through by men
whose unhapplness It Is to realize that
they are not their own masters, but
puppets in a game.
If we felt that we had genuine rep
resentative government In our state
legislatures no one would propose the
Initiative or referendum In America.
They are being proposed now as a
means of bringing our representatives
hack to the consciousness that what
they are bound In duty and In mere
policy to do Is to represent the sover
eign people whom they profess to serve
and not the private Interests which
creep into their counsels by way of ma
chine orders and committee confer
ences. The most ardent and successful
advocates of the Initiative and referen
dum regard them as a sobering means
of obtaining genuine representative ac
tion on the part of legislative bodies.
They do not mean to set anvthlng
aside. They mean to restore and in

The second power we fear Is the
control of our life through the vast
privileges of corporations which use
the wealth of masses of men to sus
tain their enterprise. It Is In connec
tlon with this danger that it Is neces
sary to do some of our clearest and
frankest thinking. It Is a fundamental
mistake to speak of the privileges of
thse crat corporations as it tney
fell within the class of private right
and of private property. Those who
administer the affairs of great Joint
stock companies are really administer
ing the property of communities, the
property of the whole mass and mls
c 'llany of men who have bought the
stock or tne bonus mat sustain tnr en
terprlse. The stocks and the bonds are
constantly changing hands. There Is
no fixed partnership. Moreover, man
agers of such corporations are the trus
tees of moneys which they them
selves never accumulated, but which
have been drawn together out of pri
vate savings here, there and every
What is necessary in order to rectify
the whole mass of business of this
kind is that those who control Jt
should entirely change their point of
view. They are trustees, not masters,
of private property, not only because
their power is derived irom a mum
tude of men. but also because In its
Investments it affects a multitude of
men. It determines the development
or decay of communities. It is the
means of lifting or depressing the life
or the whole country, rney must re
gard themselves as representatives of
a public power. There can De no rea
sonable jealousy of nubile regulation
In such matters, because the oppor
tunities of all men are affected. Their
property is everywhere touched, their
savings are everywhere absorbed, their
employment Is everywhere determined
by these great agencies. What we
ned. therefore. Is to come to a com
mon view which will not bring antag
onisms, but accommodation. The pro
grams of parties must now be pro
grams of enlightenment and readjust
ment, not revolutionary, but restor
ative. The processes of change arc
largely processes of thought, but un
happily they cannot lie effected with
out becoming political processes also.
and that Is the deep responsibility of
public men. Vt hat we need, therefore.
in our politics, is an Instant alignment
of all men free and, willing to think
and to act without fear upon their

great age In which our federal govern
ment was set up. and the man who
does not awake to the opportunity, the
man who does not sacrifice private and
exceptional Interests In order to serve
the common and public Interest. Is de
clining to take part In the business of
a heroic age. I am sorry for the man
who Is so blind that he does not see
the opportunity, and I am happy in
the confidence that In this era 'men of
strength and of principle will see their
opportunity of Immortal service.
I am not one of those who wish to
break connections of the past, nor am
I one of those who wish change for
the mere sake of variety. The only
men wno oo mat are tne men wno
want to forget something, the men who
filled yesterday with something they
would rather not recall today. Change
Is not Interesting unless It Is construc
tive, and It is an age of construction
that must put fire into the blood of
any man worthy of the name.
(From Saturday's Daily.)
Concluding a visit of several days
at the works of the Knickerbocker
Mining Company, operating the Lin
coln mine in the Bradshaw Moun
tains, C. Gadwood. son of the presi-
dent of the company, has returned
to the city, enthusiastic over the
outlook and confident that the prop
erty is entering on an era of the
greatest possibilities. He stated ves
terday that strikes are being made
almost daily in the stopes of the
old tunnel level and from a streaky
condition development is now show
ing extensive ore- bodies. A peculiar
feature of the strikes made recently
is that free gold is plainly visible
at several points in the deeper work
ings and samples brought to the city
confirm what has been reported as
occurring in recent work.
He also says that the mill is- run
ning steadily and more ore being ex
tracted than can be treated. The
plant is assured, in consequence, con
tinuous operation for months to
come. Mr. Miller, general manager,
is so confident over reeent results
that lie has decided to expand his
base ot development and in a short
time will sink a shaft on the south
end of the property several hundred
feet distant from the present one.
Mr. Gadwood is enronte to his
home in Los Angeles and will prob
ably leave today.
EICH STRIKE MADE IN HOBO.
(Trom Thursday's Daily.)
Considerable interest was evident,
yesterday, when George Uhl gave
publicity to a strike that he made a
few days ago on his Hobo mine, near
Prietta Station, showing pan values
that indicated several hundred dol
lars to the ton. The strike occurred
at the bottom of a 40-foot shaft, and
is in a vein that varies from one
inch to a foot thick. Mr. Uhl has
been identified with that district
for the past twelve years, ami has
three claims in the group, known as
