BRYAN SHOULD GO ON TO TOKIO
Callfornians are not disposed to re-j
ceive Bryan as an Instructor. They
view the coming of the secretary oi j
state as 6omewhaf of an Intrusion, ol-j
though they are willing to accord hiui
a respectful hearing.
The Sun Francisco Call serves no
tice that there must be no attempt on
the part of the national administra
tion to play politics, declaring
"President Wilson has asked thai
no legislation be had on alien land
bills until Secretary of State Bryan
can reach Sacramento for the purpose
of counseling and co-operating with :
the governor and the leglalature in J
framing a law to suit the people of the :
state and that shall leave untouched
the International obligations of the j
"Courtesy to the thief executive of j
the nation will naturally lead the'
state to comply with the president s
request At the same time It should
be very clearly noted that the federal
administration perhaps not Mr. Wil
son personally, but the very astute
and able politicians who are nearest I
to him is playing a very clever game ,
of politics at the expense of the peo-j
pie of California
"If the president and his advisers
will confess openly what we are very
much Inclined to believe in the real
truth, that they are as wholly Ignor
ant of the facts and reasons behind
the alien land bills as they have virtu-
' ally acknowledged themselves to be
concerning Alaskan affairs, and if th
administration sends Bryan here for
I educative purposes, then not only he
but the rest of the cabinet will be
very welcome at Sacramento.
"If Secretary Bryan comes only a-
the bearer of the state department's
Interpretation of our treaties, he will
he listened to with respect, and Btteh
consideration as may bo given to hiu
desires will be given.
"But if Secretary Bryan is coming
here to gne us some silver tonpu' i
oratory, he will do well to conMne Ilia
rcmarkB to the benefits which I '
fornla will receive from the Democrat
ic tariff on lemons.
This state Is In no mood to be ,lec
i tured by schoolmasters or by lay
preachers. There ie a very manifest
Intent that politic shall be played
with a dangerous situation Those
who are so inclined should keep in
mind the fact that the animal which
represents California is not the goat,
but the grizzlv bear

tility toward this country Secretary

JURY VERDICTS CANNOT BE
The United States supreme court
has declared that federal courts have
' not the power to set aside verdicts
! of juries This is a sweeping re
iersal of a practice which has been
' common lu all the courts. Here in
Utah Judges frequently declare thei
verdicts of Juries to be excessive in
damage cases against the great cor
porations. If it Is contrary to the
constitution for a federal judge to
override the judgment of a Jury, then
It must be unconstitutional for any
judge, high or low. to commit a sim
ilar abuse of constitutional rights
Followed to its logical conclusion
this means also that no Utah judge
has ihe riKht to take a case out of
a jury's hands or to enforce an in
structed crdlct The supieme court
holds that there can be no higher
method of obtaining Justice than that
accorded in a trial by jury
An eastern paper, reviewing thia
reformation in court procedure, says:
"Singularly, Justice Holmes, who
complained only the day before of a
sfere and painful heartache resulting
from the bitter criticisms of the
American people against the judicial v
in a minority opinion dissenting from
the ruling of the fitful majority, has
put himself right where he may get
a more severe pain in the heart
Justice Holmes says the decision is
wrong, although the fitful majority
against which our once velj -known
fellow citizen, William H Taft. sor
rowfully and angrily declaimed, says
"If this light keeps breaking through
we may. In time, expect even to see
judges forbidden from suppressing j
evidence thai would convict even
when it is desired that the culprit (
be nor convicted.
"There have been cases in which
verdicts made by Judges have de
stroyed much of thp faith of the
American people in their system of
dealing out law The popular, but
erroneous, conception has been that
the courts were courts of justice It
is since the people have come to un-j
derstand that the courts are courts of
law. not justice, that the judges have
' been getting heartaches
The people want courts of Justin
' not law They have had about all
the law they can stand. Now they
I want justice And justice is what j
! they will get They are on the road
to it The ruling of the supreme
I court that judges shall no longpr set
; aside verdicts is one great proof
"Isn t It just a little singular, too
that the supreme court should have
I forbidden this autocratic practice of
; judges on the ground that it Is a clear
violation of the seventh amendment
to the constitution''
"Isn't it strange, or is it strange;
that the very men who hae talked
most of the constitution as the bul
wark, the safeguard, of our instltu
i tions should be the very men to vio
late that safeguard, to tear down that
bulwark, and ravish the rights of the
"How much can we expect from
judges who have deliberately violat
ed the sacred constitution'1 How
much, and what, may we expect form
judges who didn t even know they
were violating that sacred organic
law about which they prate so much''
But when the supreme court can
I make progress, when the supreme
I court can see a light, and make B
change we may expect almost any
thing ' Nothing ought to surprise us
