Osage tow nship and the city of

Denunciation of the legal pro
fession as a w hole does not do the
individual members of the pro
fession any harm. Lawyers have
been denounced and caricatured
in the public prints and on the
stage from a time immemorial.
Hut in spite of it all the individu
al laM-yer is respected according
to his merits. And, more than
that, be is trusted by the very
people Mho Rre most violent in
their denunciation of lawyers as
a class. Your HaMser Trunnions
and your Landers may damn the
lawyers until threatened Mith
apoplexy, but when there is
trouble a-breM ing they hie them
hence to those very same lawyers.
Trusted M ith the most intimate
secrets, and often Mith the al
most absolute control of the prop
erty of his client, the individual
laM-yer can M ell afford to say of
the criticisms of his profession
Mhich pass current with the vul
gar that "they pass by me as the
idle M ind Mhich I respect not."
These criticisms are harmful
though. The bar is a part of the
machinery of the law just as much
as judges and juries are a part
of that machinery. Falsely en
courage the belief that juries can
invarably be bribed and that
judges arc corrupt, and all re-
spect for the law Mill be destroy
ed. Disseminate injurious false
hoods about, and misrepresenta
tions of, the legal profession, and
just to the extent that the lawyer
is a part of the machinery of the
law reiect for the Lim' M ill be
undermined. These truths are
obvious. Obviously, too, u pub
lication Mhich reaches the people
assume a grave responsibility in
printing falsehoods. Fair criti
cisms are not to be suppressed.
Rather are they to be Melcomed.
Hut there is a vast difference be
tween a just criticism and an un
scrupulous and utterly dishonest
denunciation. Luw Notes.
