OUR COURTS' STRUGGLE FOR
SUPREMACY AND CRITICS
A Defense of the Recall of the Judiciary and Judicial De
cisions Movement, by Melville Davidson Post
in Saturday Evening Post.
The People the Pedestal. rass
The people ought to keep all de- meet
partments of the government under in th
their eye; they ought to watch care- not c
fully how these departments operate, the a
and they ought fearlessly to hold discu
them to account. A representative to ta
government requires thls and without think
i: must cease to exist. Nothing could into
be worse in a republic than the arise:
growth of the idea that any depart- into
ment of government is immune from the
inquiry. the
It is proper that the people should suade
accord to the courts the highest tri- of sc
bute of respect, and the reason is becal
not.because they are sacred, nor yet have
because they are infallible in their been
decisions, but because to them the are
authority of the whole is delegated and
for the purpose of administering jus- Ti
tice, and the people will not permit a we
their authority to be insulted in tbh ple
person of the judges. that
This is the true base under the man
respect and esteem in which the rejet
courts are held. It is sound. By vir- as a
tue of this delegated power the ures
courts are clothed with a dignity TI
which the people will not permit any son,
man to violate. ed 1
An insult offered to the courts, held
then, or a contempt of their authori- righ
ty, passes through the judge and be
flicks the faces of those who have be
elevated him to the bench. Ingeni- the
ous persons endeavor to put the res- ann
pect which the court commands upon the
other grounds, but they are all sub- the
sidiary to this. We are told that the tha
judiciary is entitled to more respect rep
than any other department of gov- haa
ernment because it has neither a ere
treasury nor an army at its back, and res
therefore it must come to the people (
for the support of its decrees. But mo
it must come to the people, in the br(
first instance, for its power to act an
a all! ed
We are told, also, that criticism of the
a judicial decision necessarily implies cil
either that the judge was incompe- na
tent or else that he was venal. But try
immunity from criticism upon this fit
theory can apply to the courts only co
when they are administering the law ni
as they received it from the lawmak- ca
ers, and not when they undertake to th
say what laws the people shall be he
permitted to enact. at
"The error of the judge, when it is hi
caused not by any perversion of the ca
facts of the case, but upon a wrong w
evaluation, finds complete justifica- m
tion on the score of human imperfec- of
tions, which, moreover, is shared by
him who judges the work of the
judge" (Rosada).
It is clear to everybody that when |
courts are engaged in the difficult
labor of administering justice accord.
Ing to the laws which they have re
ceived they should be treated with
respect and sympathy rather than
criticism. They do make mistakes,
and these mistakes may result in op- c
pression; but no human device is per- b
fect, and all machinery for the ad- v
_ ministration of justice, however care- e
fully operated, will at times work a
some hardship. 1
It is idle to suggest that the peo
ple in a republic have not the right I
to inquire into and discuss the acts
of every department of their govern
ment, and it is fatuous to insist that E
any part of the machinery of a pro-i
fane government is sacredly immune
from this inquiry.
"The people are not obliged toC1
speak of the conduct, of their offi
cials in whispers or with bated breath i
in a free government, but only in
a despotism. On the contrary, they
have a right to speak out in open
discussion and criticism thereof; the
only test being that they make no
false statement; and this is the great
safeguard of free government and of
pure government."
The courts are not so fragile, nor
does their dignity rest upon a base
so false, that inquiry will be likely
to overthrow them. The pedestal un
der them is the authority of the peo
ple, and such a base thelight will not
corrode.
The people have the right to the
fullest inquiry into the conduct of
their courts. And when the people
undertake to meet great economy
needs by formulating laws, and the
a courts annul those laws and embar
rass the people in their efforts to poultry
meet these new and grave situations and ho
in their civilization, then the people French
not only have the right to criticise tic eco
the acts o the courts and publicly 7:30

to take such measures as they may Thur

into effect. When this situation work

LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL
RANKS WITH OTHERS
St. Francisville, La., Dec. 30, 1912.
The True Democrat:
I was asked a short time ago it
our high school here ranked with
the high schools in New Orleans 'n
thc extent of the work offered an]
the degree of thoroughness with
which the work is done. My, answer
was in the affirmative, and since oth
er taxpayers of the parish may de
sire to be informed on the subject,
the following letter should be of in
terest to your readers:
Tulane University of Louisiana,
New Orleans, La., Nov. 2, 1912.
Principal J. W. Crichlow,
St. FrancisviUe, La.
Dear Mr. Crichlow:
I am in receipt of your report of ,
the Julius Freyhan High School of
St. Francisville. An examination of
this shows that your school is offer
ing sixteen units which would be ac
ceptable to our entrance committee.
We hope to have a visitor go to see
your work some time during this
year. In the mean time I feel justi
fied in offering you a scholarship for
one of your graduates in the spring
of 1913. These scholarships are now
good either in the Arts and Science
college, or in the department of
ITechnology, and exempt the holder
from the payment of the $100 tuition
t -ee.
Wishing you all success in your
-work, I remain,
Very truly yours,
B EDWARD A. BETCHTEL,
Chairman Committee on Affiliated
n Schools.
In view of the recent agitation in
the New Orleans papers on the part
of the Parents' Clubs by which the
" School Board was asked to change
' the course of study so that the grad
- uates of the New Orleans high
r. schools would be admitted to Tulane
i- and Sophie Newcome College with
' out a year's preliminary additional
'i preparation, it might appear that our
n- school ranks higher than do the
"'lhigh schools in the city.
v" I am sure, however, that there is
ie a mistake somewhere, for the city
;c schools have the same course of
at study as do the State Approved High
at Schools and the graduates of the Lit
erary Course there have the same
number of units to their credit as
in do our graduates.
In There is this difference between
ng our school and the one~ in New Or
ur- leans: We have necessarily a small
as teaching corps and can offer only
el- one course, which all the pupils have
co- to take; while in the large schools
res in the city the faculties are much
th, larger, different courses are offeired,
by the studies most of them are option
al, and the pupils can take practical
ion ly what they choose. I don't know,
but I suspect that the trouble in
na New Orleans is because of this fact,
and many of the students do not
.-choose the studies that are requisite
ac- for admission into the college or
tie. university.
hes It has been demonstrated beyond
el- question that the work which we at
Tie- tempt to do here is done no better
of anywhere in the state, and we are
B. doing all that it is posible to have
ibo- done well with the means at our dis
tion posal. The demand for vocational
side training in our schools is becoming
ited more and more urgent and we stand
ready to put in Manual Training and

Son soon as the means can be provided.
