- JUDGE 'MAULDIN DI FENDS THE
COUIt'S AND JURIES IN CHARGE
Rallying to the defense of the
; i p t juries, Judge Thomas
"T'"kens, declared to
Ito- ,: to the G reenville

of General Sessions
a falling down in
- of justice in the
coura, , .it lies with the man
ner of presentation and quality of
"There are complaints from many
source) apdf .h3 ubstance, the char
--ges are that the costrts are not doing
their duty; that th juries often fail
to measure up to the standards of duty
and citizenship; that the courts are
allowing delays in the administration
of, justice." said Judge Mauldin. Re
plying to these charges he said:
"From an experience of eight
years on the bench I have found that
so far as the courts are concerned,
they are doing their utmost in the
administration of the-laws. The rules
of court proc.edure have been srys
tallized and the courts arc bound by
them. It is well that they are. It
is true that many men charged with
crime are acquitted by juries; it is
also true that many are found guilty.
't is true that many appeal after be
ng found guilty. That is proper.
f this court was the court of last
esort many mistakes would go un
"My experience is that juries make
fewer mistakes in their sphere of
du -y than do judges in theirs. Where
is 'he trouble? Petit juries render
the}.' decisions according to the evi
denc. If there is a failure, if there
is a f&.jing down, it rests in the test
imony ns .presented, by -the State.
Jurors are :sworn to try cases accord
.ng to the law in the case. You can't
blame petit juries for the verdicts
they render. If the facts are not re
vealed, whom can you blame?"
Judge Mauldin then launched into
an attack upon . those who criticize
the < urts and juries. "If the people
who riticize would assist in the ad
ducing of evidence, they would bet
ter fulfill their duties as citizens.
T ~' What is needed is not critic.ism but
justification of honest effortsl cf
courts in trying to have justice en
Pleading for - the; support of the
courts by the citizenship of the State,
Judge Mauldin said: "We are not
without fault; we may criticize, we
may condemn. But the greatest
Sits chargeable to our people today
is that we are not as mindful of the
law as we ought to be. Every citi
zen should stand behind the courts.
We can not accomplish anything
by criticism, especially that carping

in the opinion that the grand Jury is
an obsolete institution. "You stand
between veritable oppression on one
hand and t' liberty given us thru
400 years by our forefathers on the
othet," said Judge Mauldin.
Judge Mauldin advised the grand
jury to look well into every phase of
county government and particulary
in to the operation of the county
home, the jail and the chaingang.
Turning to magistrates and the
manner in which their duties should
be performed, Judg ) Mauldin said:
"Why are magistral es all over the
county? It is to bring the law close
to the people. There are many cases
sent up to this court that should
have ended in the magistrate's office.
One reason why crimes enlarge is be
cause magistrates and their constables
don't take these things in hand in
time. A good magistrate is a great
asset to a community. A magistrate
who signs his name to every petty
matter is a nuisance to a commun
