14 it Where Rum Has Slain Thousands, Dry Law Has Tens of Thousands, Says Georgia Bar President r Declares 18th Amendment Will Become Dead Letter Cannot Enforce Law Lacking Support of Public Opinion SAVANNAH, On,, June 2 (Copy right). Tho lynching spirit miut be kept out of tho courts. This cannot bo dono If tho cry for Immediate trials for accused violators of tho Uw Is heeded, In tho opinion of Judpc Arthur O. Powell of Atlanta, Presi dent of tho Georgia Bar Association. Judgo Powell, In addressing tho an nual meeting of the association, held at Tybee Island yesterday, clectrl- i . 4 iliMtlarnllntl F? lieu mo memucro ui - ' In bitter oDDosltlon to hurried crim inal trials and the National Prohibi tion Law. To-day tho State Is dl Tlded as a result of his remarks. Speaking In opposition to tho Pro Wbltion amendment, Judgo Powell said: "The Eighteenth Amendment, foist ed upon the country when we were In the throes of the late war, will be come a dead letter unless It was born of a wisdom -which wo do not now seem to see. A statute lacking tho support of public opinion cannot gen erally bo enforced. "I am speaking now as an Individ ual and not as the President of the Bar Association and 1 do not ask you to agree with me, but It Is my calm, deliberate Judgment that nb enact ment of such widespread viclousness, of such universally debasing effect on your law nnd the enforcement of It, of such potency In arousing dlsro epect for law and the courts, ever before has been Impressed upon our people. "Bum has its undoubted evils. Tho barrooms wcro Intolerable nuisances. The Influence of the whlskoy Interests In our politics was delaslng to tho last degree; yet In flying from these evils wo have flown to worse. We were told that liquor was tho cause of crime, that It made widows and orphans, that It was practically tho solo author of poverty and distress. Have crimes decreased? Ara tljere fewer widows and orphans? Is there less poverty and distress? "Tho history and natural effect of the passago and the enforcement of drastic Prohibition law Is to dimin ish the number of petty crimes and to Increase tho number of felonies. 81lght folly Is" oftentimes an antl- H a, rt fnr crimn. K , "Tho wave of homicide which swept over Georgia on the passage of Its Statewide Prohibition Law found Its counterpart In the wave that swept the nation on tho passage of the VC country-wide law. It is no exaggera tion to say that where rum has slain Its thousands Prohibition has slain Its tens of thousands. "If you do not bcllevo that the dragon's teeth are being sown In Georgia soil, ride along ono of our public roads and seo the chain gang at work, most of them offenders aaglnst the Prohibition law. Notice therein tho lnrge number of young white men nnd boys. What will bo If You Own An Automobile read page 135 June 3rd Issue Saturday Evening Post the effect on society when these, de- lased and degraded us they are by tho nnturn of their punishment, aro re turned to community life; when thoy become fathers of fnmlllrs that arc to be reared uniong us? There Is some thing radically wrong In tho law that cannot lo enforced except at such tre mendous mnrnl cost." Replying to tho concerted demand that has been made throughout tho country, and especially In Georgia, for speeding up criminal trials, cut ting of red tape by the courts, and the doing away of technicalities, Judge Powell said: "The demand for fewer technical ities is of course merely the demand that In the administration of rights there shall bo less law and more dis cretion. The procedural technicalities with which the law surrounds prac tice In the courts bears very much the same relation to tho administra tion of tho law thut conventionalities bear to social life. "Strip the law of technicalities, or social llfo of conventionalities, nnd tho weak, the puro, tho fair-minded and tho good find themselves at once victims of wiles and Improper ad vances which neither Justlco no' so ciety 1ms found any other method of lestralnlng. As truly as convention alities distinguish nnd protect the amenities of pollto life from the Inde corum and vulgarity of the lll-lirod and Impure, ho do technicalities dis tinguish and protect tho dignity nnd tho majesty of tho courtfl from tho criminal, the brutal and tho Unclvlllz Ing spirit of the mob. "If theio needs be n lynohlng, let tho mob do It; do not ask It of the court. The courts must not pander to the molw. Hpecdy trials do not ullay tho mob spirit; they set tho ex ample, they Inculcate and foster It. Even If they were a remedy, tho remedy would bo worse than the disease."
