The Stanton Case.
If Judge Stanton was not particu
larly worthy of the office of chief
justice and if he had not been nomin
ated by a vote which totalled al
most as much as Chief Justice Start,
he should be elected for at least one
other reason. That is thisthat his
friends should use every effort
It was then that certain lawyers
circulated a petition for the placing
on the ballot of the name of Judge
Brown, claiming that his record as
associate justice entitled him to the
promotion. These men did not take
into consideration two facts i. e.
1. The primary was so designed
that it would reduce the candidates
for the office to two who would come
before the people at the general elec-
2. That the people will not tol-
erate having their will thrust aside
by any coterie.
The people of the north country
are for Stanton. The people in other
parts of the state are for him as
soon as the injustice being done is
brought to their attention. Many of
the men behind Brown were strong
backers of the primary idea yet have
bolted it at the first opportunity and
are trying to force their will on the
people. Stanton won his nomination
fairly and deserves election for that
if for no other reason.
Worthy of Promotion.
Judge Oscar Hallam of St. Paul
is entitled to election to the su-
preme bench solely on his record as a
judge and as a man. Both are be-
yond reproach both merit the pro-
motion he seeks, and if he were
known throughout the state as he is
in his home city, there would be no
question of his election.
Personally he is a lovable man
approachable, kindly and companion-
able. He has by nature the breadth
of sympathy that wins and holds
friends. He is essentially human,
knowing, understanding and appreci-
ating the good that is in men of all
classes and judging all fairly.
As a judge he has amply proved
his fairness and ability. He has a
keen sense of justice, and no man is
so poor and none so rich or powerful
as to get from him either more or less
than the equities of his case, measur-
ed by the law, entitle him to have.
He is big of mind and heart he
is genuine and sincere. He is of
just that quality and fiber of which
judges should be made. In fact, we
cannot better describe him nor pay
him a higher compliment than to say
that he is exactly the kind of man
and lawyer that this district has
chosen as its judges and who pre-
side in the court here in Duluth.
It is such men who place our
courts above censure or criticism and
prevent judicial recall or the recall
of judges from being an issue before
the people. The people of Minne-
sota will have only cause for satis-
faction if they select Oscar Hallam
as a member of the supreme court of
this state.The Duluth News Trib-
