T[hose w'ho are wont to lay prevalent
lawlessness to delays in tile courts in
cident to apioals of lawyers might
find some food for thought in the 59
appeal decisions handed down by the
state supreme court last week. Out
of 59 decisions handed down, it will
be found that there were 27 reversals
of lower courts to 32 appeals sus
tained, 'a .rather high average of re
versals. With such a large number of
reversals of the lchver courts, it occurs
to us that lawyers can hardly be
.blamed for taking their cases higher
Of course, there are many cases
where lawyers take advantage of the
right of appeal to stay off sentences of
their clients, but it would hardly meet
the ends of Justice to restrict the &lp
peal machinery when the rights of
those who have just cause for appeal
might b3 endangered.
Instead of .trying to shift the blame
for: lawlessness on other shoulders,
the c:ublic might take stock of itself
and no doubt it will find that a large
part of the crime that is rampant may
be traced back to itself as expressed
in the verdict of Juries, the sentences
of judges and the respect which the
criminal enjoys even after his convic
tion. There was a time, for instance,
when a boot-legger would have been
an outcast on society, bi-t todny many
of them enjoy considerable respecta
ubility. They do not suffer the penalty
of disgrace th'at should attach to de
Thiei'e is no doubt that cr'ime can be
reduced when the law-abiding people
are ready to r'eduice it. Until they are
willing to take a hand themselves and
lend moral support to the executive
andi judlicial arm of tire law, crime may
be expected ,to Increase or at least hold
