The nomination of Geo. P. Platt as judge of the Second City Court
over two opponents, Judge M. S. Mahoney and Robt. O'Connor, showed that
the old guard of the regulars are still able to put anything over when the
word has been passed down the line. It was almost the last few hours that
the regulars were told to vote for Platt, an old trick that does not let the
opposition know what they are doing. There were a few breaks in the O.
D. A. ranks that were disastrous to Robt. O'Connor. Several of the precinct
leaders of the O. D. A. wore Platt badges at the poles and worked hard for
his election. It was not generally known that Judge Martin S. Mahoney was
with the O. D. A. faction. The primary was supposed to be one of these
"hands off affairs," and, like many other "hands off affairs," the word was
passed down the line at the last minute, which robbed the opposition of its
opportunity to counteract this kind of politics.
Mr. Platt received the majority over the two opponents and will become
the judge of the Second City Court, and all law-abiding citizens should bury
the political hatchet and look upon Judge Platt as representing no faction,
but as our judge of the Second City Court. He is entitled to the respect and
support of our citizens, and we salute him and congratulate him.
18 FIGHT BORN IN US?
We notice a newspaper here and there which is putting up a gallant fight
against the human nature of their readers and patrons. Briefly, these editors d
are using up all their adjectives and wearing their pens down to the quick. b
against the recent duel between Monsieur Carpentier and the Honorable J. ci
"How cheap and disgusting is all this miserable fighting dope!" cries a
Put it there, comrade! It IS cheap. It IS disgusting. But what of it,
brother, when you realize that at least every other man in America, number p
lag millions and millions and millions, not only read that "cheap sand disgust b
tag dope" with relish, but would, if they could, have attended the battle at E
Jersey City in person? I C
This present writer doubts if there was one young man among any 100 o
young American men, who was not interested in the recent "cheap dope" about a
Carpentier-Dempey fracas. We doubt iff less than half the young men in any r
named church were not interested in the said dope. And we imply no
It isn't that we favor fighting matches. We do not favor them in the ti
tu$u degree. We wish there was not such a thing as a fight on God's
_geen earth. But men are men, and no matter how gentle they are in their
daily life, the battle strain still courses, biologically, through their veins.
We may uqueese the animal out of thelr blood in a few millions of years, or t
perhaps in a few thousand years-but not in the twentieth century. And the
editors who crsade today against the fighting spirit are merely breaking b
her lances against concrete walls a league thick. c
SOB STUFF AND STONEjHEART
THE SWCRET OF PAILURE. r
When your employer put you to work, there was a mutual agreement a
that you should receive a stipulated amount for each hour, each day, each
week, or month of labor. I
Therefore, you are not bound to deliver any more than is paid for. That's t
tight, Isn't it?
Keep your eye trained on the clock, and when the hand points to quit. -
4ag time, be sure you are ready to get out. If the particular job in. hand J
Iblike it might require . couple of minutes overtime, you had better not
Sstart it until the next day. 'Better be an hour early and stand and wait than
Sto work a minute late.
And it you are are 'few minutes late getting to work in the morning, be
afre you are ready to stop when quitting time comes-or even a few minutes
beoren. It is the deepest of folly to become so deeply engrossed in your work _
nOt you forget the time of day.
Bear In mind that you are paid for your time; your time is your only
sleek in trade.
If your eoworkers seem inclined to occasionally throw in a few minutes
.vertiLme, talk them out of it-on the bos's time, of course. The boss is
a knga a prot from your labor.
Of eourse, If you approach your employer anl suggest that you are worth
-re maony, he may tell you to prove it.
And if you should be offered a better position elsewhere, the man who
employs you may hesitate before reeommending you.
Bat, after all, even though you stay right where you are today, at a
mal wage watching the clock, seing the other fellow climbing upward and
a , gettln more money and all that-don't budage. Yaou have the satisfaction

Judge Joshua G. Baker has been en
dorsed widely through New Orleans E
by those who know the character of I
courage, independence and fearlessness f
coupled with human sympathy, dis- ~
played by him during many years of I
dealing with human rights and 1
Unscathed by thirty-five years of
public judicial life, held in high regard
by even his political opponents, Judge I
Baker, senior of the Criminal District
Court and candidate for the succession
of Justice W. B. Sommerville on the
state Supreme bench, holds a proud
record for public service.
He practically has dedicated his life
to the study, practice and interpreta
tion of the criminal law, and is recog
nised as one of its foremost exponents.
Yet he has always maintained his
touch with the law as a whole.
Judge Baker, during his career on
the bench, has presided over some of
the most notable criminal cases in the
history of the city and parish. He is
credited by lawyers and Judges with
holding an enviable record for correct
interpretation of the law, and his re
versals by the Supreme Court, accord
lag to legal authorities, have been so
seldom that they are in the nature of
rarities. His record as a law student,
as a young practicing criminal lawyer,
as an assistant prosecutor and as a
Judge, have been largely on the same
parity of excellence.
Joshua G. Biker was born on a
sugar plantation in St. Mary parish
August 3, 1852. His might have been
a life of ease and comfort as a sugar
planter, but as a youth he developed
a Judicial temperament that directed
his destiny to a great extent.
He was educated by privav tutors
and then attended the Bellevue High
AIARJIEaS AT 4aw.

School near Lynchburg, Va., where he e
graduated. Returning to New Orleans l
in 1871, Mr. Baker attended two sea- t
sions of the old Tulane Law School
and graduated from that institution be
fore he was 20. He was denied his di
ploma because of his minority. How
ever, he went before the Supreme
Court, passed the required examina

that tribunal in 1874.

year, when Governor McEnery ap
pointed him for a full eight-year term,
to succeed himself.
Governor Foster, in 1892, failed to
reappoint Judge Baker, and gave the
post to James C. Moise. His judicial

AN ENDORSEMENT OF LUTHER
E. HALL FOR SUPREME
TAugust 4, 1921.
The Honorable Luther E. Hall,
New Orleans, Louisiana.
My Dear Governor Hall:
Your candidacy for the Supreme
Bench of Louisiana is an event of
such far-reaching importance to our
State that the receipt of your card
of announcement demands more than
The widespread social unrest
among our people, liable to be en
venomed by contact with the wilder
unrest of the world is largely rooted
in a growing distrust of our various
departments of Government. The
feeling of suspicion is growing that
small groups, powerful in politics and
finance, are controlling the activi
ties of Government and excluding
therefrom competent men who are
unamenable to their influences.
Hence respect for authority is de
clining, and the consequent lack of
confidence in official justice threat
ens to poison our civic life. Dis
trust of representatives and executive
bofficials admits more easily of
remedy, but distrust in the character
or competency of the judiciary under
mines the foundations and clogs the
arteries of law, begetting anarchy.
Now that even the independence
and legal capacity of our judges and
courts are beginning to be question
ed, it is fortunate that our State has
an opportunity of replacing the late
Chief Justice by a jurist whose abil
ity, experience, integrity and inde
pendence are beyond cavil, who can
e be swayed by no groups nor interests,
5 and is under bond only to the people
)l The fact that, at much personal
sacrifice, you have devoted freely
your eminent legal talents and ex
' perience as Lecturer in Loyola Law
e School to the training of students for
& the service of the State, has made
us personally cognizant of those dis- .
tinugushed qualities of head and
heart that the whole State had rec
ognized in rising you to the highest N4
d judicial and executive positions in at
its gift; and in expressing the earn- do
eest hope that again our people do Cl
themselves the honor and the service a
Sof returning you to their Highest
P Court, I feel I am recording the gen- di
Seral sentiment of our Faculty. lii
to Believe me,
d. Very sincerely yours,
ie (Signed) MICHAEL KENNY, S. J.
