Decision of
Following Is the full text of the
unanimous finding of Judges Humph
rejs, dear and Robinson In the case
of Walter O. Smith, editor of the Pa
ilflc Commercial Advertiser, cited for
contempt of court.
The affidavit filed In this caso seems
to set out pretty fully all tho perti
nent, material and relevant facts. Tho
charge of contempt whether It be held
to be a direct or Indirect contempt, a
constructive contempt or a contempt
committed In the face of the court. Is
charged technically In apt and proper
words.
On behalf of respondent It Is con
tended that this court Is without tho
power which ordinarily Inheres In nil
courts of record to protect themselves
and tn prevent the obstruction, cm
barrassment nnd hindrance of the duo
and orderly administration of Justice.
Ihls contention Is made under tli
net of 1888. see chapter 42, Laws of
1888, which provides, section 1, that
"the publication of the proceedings
before any court or Judgo Bhall not bo
deemed to be contempt, nor shall such
publication be punishable for con'
tempt." Section 2, Constructive con
tempts Bhalt not be punishable as
such."
Wp are of the opinion that sectloV 1
and section 2 of tho Act of 1SRS must
be construed together unuer fhe fa
miliar principle of law that stntutcs In
pari materia must be construed as a
whole. The constructive contempts
which nre declared not to be punish
able as such In section 2 of the Act of
1SS8 niuuiffstlv refers to section 1 of
the snmo act. which declares thnt the
publication of the proceedings before
tiny court shall not be punishable as
contempt.
The right then to publish prcoeed.
Ings of a com t truthful and fair pro
ceedlngs the truthful and fair report
of tho proceedings of the court, sub
stantial!) accurate reports, Is a right
which' fs expresslv given to the citizen
by the laws of this Terrltorj, nnd It Is
a right which this court cannot in
fringe upon even If It were so disposed.
Hut this right Is limited to a substnn
tlal, nc curate publication of the pro
ceedings, and where tho publication
does not consist or purpoit to consist
of a publication of the proceedings,
but consists of Invention nnd of false
hood, ealfulntid to tiling the courts
Into tMlum, hatred ridicule and con
tempt, theieh) enibnirasMng the Influ
ence of the courts, obstructing nud im
peding, embarrassing and hindering
tho administration of Justice, It Is a
contempt, nnd punishable as such un
der our laws.
Now, In the Stnti against the lice
Publishing Company, I.awjers' lie
ports Annotated, volume 50. page 197,
It appeared that the publication was
made with referento to n pending case
The editor of the paper was cited to
show cause In thnt proceeding why he
should not bo dealt with aB and for n
contempt of court. Ho appeared In
court by counsel nnd defended the ac
tion against him upon the grounds
that "no disrespect to the court or to
uny member of the court was Intended,
that the case of the State vs. Srajth
was not pending; thnt tho public n-
uons were mnue witn good motives,
nnd were not calculate il to obstruct
the due administration of Justice1." The
Kennedy e-nso was pi nillng. Of thnt,
said the com t. we have Judicial knowl
edge, nud tho defendant must surely
have known that the ease was In court
and undetermined, foi It appears that
the attorney for lospondentB brought
his brief to .Mr. Hosevvntcr's office and
that the article headed "Worth) of Se
rious Consideration," Immediately to).
Ion til a meeting between the editor
and tho law)ci.
The defendant In this caBe has not
taken the stand. Ho personally has
.... .... . .
"''" unuer ins corporeal oatn in
""' l,Ion of Ib court that he hud no
knowledge of the pendency of the enso
of tho Territory of Hawaii against

toon In question also contains, In nn
other column, a notice of the fact that
tills ,n In ,n,iii,r nmi ti,. a 1,1...
his case, Is pending, and that a Jury
had been sworn In tho cnuSo for tho
purpose of tr)Ing It,
Thu first and third def uses nrn puc -
illu; they amount to n denial that tho
defendant Intended Jo violate the law.
Under tho ennredid fnctB tho course
pursued by lilin was Indefensible. Ills
conduit Is not susceptible of an Inno
cent 01 honorable constitution. Tho

CIRCUIT JUDGES
In Case of Editor Smith
their Impoitant duties In the hUtory
of American Jurisprudence there can
be found no ease In which this power
hns been harshl) or oppressively ex
ercised b) n court of final Jurisdiction
Indeed, suth courts have not often
caned publishers to account for con
structive) contempts, because it has
rarely happened that a respectable
public Journnl wielding any consider
able Influence has deliberately employ
ed outlaw mtthods In attempting to
control Judicial action.
Cases of this kind originating In the
lower courts nre verv numerous. Wo
will not take the time to clto them or
an) of them. Hut as was said by the
Supreme Court of Iowa In the, case of
Field against Thorncll, fi)C Iowa, page
l.". It seldom happens tnat an honor
able Journalist so far forgets his self
respect ns to trespass upon the rights
of the Judlclar), or to seek to control
or Improperl) Influence Its conclusions
We have, of course, no dcslru to re
strnln In the slightest degree tho ftec
t'oni of the press, oi to maintain tho
dignity of the court b) lulllttlng pen
alties on those who may assail us
with defamntor) and mnllcloiis publl
cations. Our decisions and all our of
ficial actions nre public property, and
the press nnd people havo the un
doubted right to comment on them,
i.nd criticize them nnd censuro them
as the) see fit. Judicial off Iters, Ilka
other public servants, must answer for
their official actions before tho chan
cery of public opinion; they must
make good their claims to popular es
tetm by excellence and by virtue, by
faithful and efficient servlco, nnd by
righteous conduct. Hut while we Con
rede to the press the right to criticize
freely our decisions when made. w
den) to any Individual or to any class
of men a right to subject us to any
form of coercion with tho view of af
fecting our Judgment In a pending
rase In the Iown enso nliovo cited
It Is said' Cotiits aic constantly
parsing on questions affecting the life
and llbut) of the citizen ns well as
ie rights nf propel ty, and tho fre
dc in of tho Judltlnry to Investigate

tli' well being of soclct) as tho frfie

to dlpguli from themselves tho fact
that tiny nie amenable In nnj degree
to the force- of popular opinion Uut It
Is foil) to deceive ourselves, It Is futile
to attempt to deceive others Threats
public clamor have befoie now nwaied
the Judgments mid flxtd the purpose
of resolute men, and It will be well ta

not onl) to give tu ever) suitor his ile

surance that no banned und hostile in

Judgments rendered without bias, with

wrong against the rights of litigants
and against the rights of Judges, It Is
a public wrong, a crime against the
State, against tho decent and good
order of soclet). Thnt a rarty does not
succeed In such undertaking which he
manifestly Intends lessens Ills oflcnsn
only In degree. Ills ability to do harm
Is confined, it Is limited b) the t-.inwn
personal weaknesses of the wilter ot
such articles, and the cont'Mrpt into
which they generally bring him. Wo
feel quite sure that the publications
here In question have not In the Riast
deterred us from discharging with
fidelity our duty In the rase at bar.
They wer manifestly Intended to over
awe and Intimidate this court, they
appearing to bo put forth for the pui
pose of preventing a decision by the
Jury In favor of the defenJant. They
were under the circumstances palpatio
acts of Journalistic lawlessness and
anarchy, tnlculated to weaken the In
dependence of the court and to destroy
confidence In Its Judgment. To Justify
them Is to den) the supremacy of the
law, and to answer the doctrine of
newspaper absolutism under the guise
of a frc press. To admit that publish
ers may promote their Interests In
penning litigation by resorting to
methods not available to others. Is to
strike down our much vaunted prlncl
pie of "equallt) before the law," and
to declare that Journalists who choose
to become malefactors are a privilege I
class, and entitled ns such to go un-
whipped of Juitlcc Hut the law rec
ognizee no such distinction; It never
has recognized It It accords to pub

rights hut such as are common to all.
The) have Just the same rights us the
rest of the community have, no more
nnd no less A man who speaks In a
newspaper has no greater right Ihau
ho who speaks out of It. A newspaper
Is no sanctuary behind which a person
can shield himself for breaking tno
solemn laws of the land. We have not
acted In this case out of any spirit ot
tjpentment: Indeed, we have no rcison
to feel specially aggrieved. The natural
tendency of the article Is, however and
the cartoon Is to Interfere with unci
obstruct the due administration of Jus

W. O Smith. In answer to the ic
marks of the court, said that there was
no necesslt) for a further showing on

personal knowledge was disclaimed,
and that the cartoon related to the flrrt
trial a rase In which the decision had
already been given ,
Judge Clear replied that till contenpt
was not a constructive one, nnd that
that statute did not apply to written
or spoken, words, and consequcn'ly tho
defendant could not be putged of the
