Law and Common Sense.
"It often happens that the best settlement of a case is not done
according to law but according to common sense."
The above statement is taken from an editorial in the Ohio
State Journal and if true proves that our system of legal procedure
is wrong and that the people have made very poor selections of
The only reason for laws is that through them justice may be
secured. Courts and judges are a means for the administration of
justice. Almost all law is judge
the interpretation of statutes by judges Jor the applying of certain
great fundamental principles to certain facts by judges.
We believe that it is seldom possible to do injustice legally ;
that to apply common sense to a certain set of facts is almost with
out exception to apply the law to that set of facts. When a judge
decides a question contrary to the law. When injustice is done in
court the trouble is not with the
are interpreting it.
We doubt if two cases with identically the same set of facts
have even been presented in court. It may be that most of the
facts are similar and that as far
concerned it i: exactly the same
a favorite expression of lawyers,
one decision in the first case may
quire a different decision. This
decision which will result in justice being done.
The policy is entirely too prevalent in our courts of using the
decision in one case as a guide to the decision in others. If it con
tinues to grow we will soon have courts of precedent instead of
courts of law. The trouble is not
not the same but that so many judges have not common sense and
therefore wrongly interpret the
The following statement which we have heard credited to the
late Judge Harrison, of Columbus,
'When justice demands a certain decision, it is a mighty poor
judge, who can not find law to support it."
What Will Prohibition Do ?
The man who frequents saloons, the man who drinks is the man
"who knows better than anyone else the evils of the saloon and the
evils of drinking. .
In considering the question of
posed amendment for state wide prohibition this fall there is but
one question for him to determine, "Will state wide prohibition re
sult in less liquor being drunk ?" If it will he should be one of its
Let us consider the matter fairly and without prejudice.
Before Hillsboro went dry the argument was advanced that
"more liquor would be sold here if the town was voted dry than if
it was wet. The man who lived here when saloons were running
and who lives here now knows that much more liquor was runkd
then than now. So far as Hillsboro is concerned the subject is not
open for discussion. It has been proved.
The brewers, distillers and saloon keepers are financing the
present campaign against state wide prohibition. They have
financed every campaign that has ever been conducted against pro
hibition, township, municipal, county and state. These men are in
the liquor business for the money they can make out of it. The
more of the stuff they sell the more money they make. So far as
the brewers and distillers are concerned there can be no question
as to the truth of these statements. Their sole object is to have a
demand for their product. The saloon keeper, of course, is in a
different position as with prohibition he can not longer do business
legally. Can any one believe that if the brewers and distillers
thought more beer and whiskey would be sold if Ohio was dry than
if it was wet would .be spending money to keep it wet ?
-The man who has suffered from the saloon should be its bitter
est opponent. He should be the most earnest dry advocate. The
saloon keeper has not sold him liquor because he wanted to befriend
him but to get his money. Why
with that which does him harm
To the drinking man we put this question, "Will less liquor be
sold in Ohio if it is dry than if it is wet ?" .If there will be for his
own good and the good of the state it is his duty to vote for
