Judge Humphrey Replies to
Roosevelt's Criticism Over
IN ADDRESS AT SPRINGFIELD
Declares No Nation Can Long Survive
When Judiciary Yields to Pop
Springfipld, 111., Jan. 23. The first
expression from Judge J. Otis Hum
phrey in reply to the criiicism direct
ed against him by President Roose
velt because of his unpopular decision
in the beef trust case was made in an
n-Mress" yesterday at a meeting of the
Springfic" Ad Men's club.
"There are m:iny citizens whose ac
tion is such that they at least allow
us o believe that they expect the ju
dicial depanment of the government
to be run in accordance with public!
sentiment," said Judge Humphrey.
"When the day comes let us trust
that it may never come that the judi
cial branch of government is swerved
from it official duty by the clamor of
the populace, the end of the govern
ment is not far distant.
Muvt t Vifl.l to Freuzr.
"No government can long survive
whose judiciary yields to the popular
frenzy that follows for a moment the
mere clamor of the unreasoning, tin
educated, in that particular case, opin
ion of the public or even of the press.
"Ijuv is not the simple law of the
major number, differing from the will
of yesterday and to differ from the
will of tomorrow. Law :s not tiie ar
bitrary creation of major will or of
any will, but it ought to be. as we
trust it will ever be, the well rounded,
well considered justice of the state,
enlightened by the leasonings of the
court which eniorces it. You would
have little respect. I think, for a court
who curbed his views to meet the
Itrenllx Acquit till of Hurr.
Judge Humphrey referred to the de
cision of Chief Justice Marshall, whom
he declared to be the greatest judicial
character the world has produced, in
the celebrated Aoron Burr case, when
the public was wildly clamoring for
Burr's conviction on a charge of trea
son. He emphasized the force of char
acter necessary for Justice Marshall
to acquit the man in the face of public
demand for his conviction.
"When I think of Marshall in his
great action in the Burr case," de
clared Humphrey, "I cannot but regard
him as having made a perpetual call
on American judges of all succeeding
ages to stand for the administration
of the law as it is written and stand
above the waves of the popular voice;
to stand so high that popular criti
cism can never reach him, and, hav
ing done all, to stand."
