JUDG[ K. M. LAIOI8
IMPEACHID IN H1OU8[
Representative From Ohio
Charges High Crimes
dieiary Com:miftive of the House
While )iIi Flays tihe Judge in hI le
Washington, Feb. 1 I.--On charges of
high crimieis an(1 inisdeieanorsi, Fed
eral Judge Kenesaw M\otintain Landis,
of Chicago, iwas inieached in . the
House of Representatives today by
Representative Welty, ilecmocrat, of
Ohio, because of his acceptance of
tile office of supreme arbiter of base
ball while still serving on the bench.
In taking this stup the Ohio mem
ber swept aside an opinion by Attor.
ney General Palmer that Judge Landis
was within the law, and that there
was no law making such accnptance a
crime, either disdemeanor or felony.
The opinion was renlered recently by
the attorney general on the written
request of Mr. Welty, who had ques
tioned the judge's rig'ht to hold 1)oth
elfore proceeding to the floor of
the House where his charges were
read, Mr. Welty refused a request by
Senator Dial, Democrat, of South Car
olina, to include in the general Indliet
ient statemncnts attributed to Judge
4andis in refusing to send to jail a
young Ott2wa, Illinois, hank clhrk be
cause of the belief that offielals of the
bank were responsible for the clerk's
speculation by failure to pay him a
DiI to Mhe Clarge
Senator Dial on r(ceiVing the Ohio
representaliVe's refusal announced lie
would file complaint against Jidge
Landis with the department of justice
and later in the day attacked the Chi
cago jurist on the floor of the Senate,
describing him as. a "freak" and a
"crank." T:e South Carolina senator
characterized Jidgi Landis' statement
that the Ottawa bank clerk's enloy
era were in a imeasu re respo-nsible for
the youth's theft of $96,000 as "the
most bolshevik doctrine I ever heard,"
and an"Yd that if the action taken by
the judge in paroling the ' clerk
amounted to cncoilragement of such
acts as those of the clerk "It is strik
ing at the foundations of our govern..
There was no comment in the
House when Mr. Welty concluded the
reading of a formal indictment of
Judge Landis. On his own motion, as
is customary in suen pIroceedliig8, the;
indictment vas referred to the j!dic
ary conimittee, without debate. TLess
than a third of the meilbers ipresent
voted, and a number of scatterir'
voices were lifted in Opposition. No
.body -asked for a rising v'ote. llepre
sentative Shemhwad, D~emoe rat, of
Ohio, sitting on the front row, clap
,Ped his hands, but otherwIse there
was no indlication as to bow the ilouse.
TIhe next step wil be by3 Mir. WVelty,
-who will appear' ipossibly this weelk,
before the Judiciary commnittee, with
such witnesses as he sees fit to call,
to ampliify his charges. The commit
teo will then decide whether to go
ahead ewith the case. It -has the pow
or to dlismniss the charges, and so ire
.Port to the House, and adoption of
such a repiort would exonerate Judge
Lanidis of the clharges preferred by
Aniswers Landis' Attaick
Senatqr Dial answeredl the attack
*made by Judge 'J,/indhis on him in a
sopeech at iDes Moines last Saturday
"Hie shows by his r'eply," the sona
toi' tddoed, "'that lie is not constituted.
by temnperamecnt to exercise tho du
ties of judge."

whic'h he saild wci'e in~ error inisofar as
the cotton mill with which ho wvas
connected 'was aeccusedl of trying to
upset .the child- labor iawv. A mill in
another state, Senator Dial - nid,
brought the invalidation suit,.
