B The law now enacted has simply repealM
this Ave years' proviso. When this section
I of the law was passed, not quite six years
I ago, nobody questioned the propriety or
W justice of affixing some limit of this sort,
I nor was It deemed anything but liberal to
I make five yoars the limit. Nuvcithclc-s,
I applications for pei:-ious have continued
I to pour iu Kurprilngly during the pant half

Bjl was undoubtedly not his or her fault. Ii.de
l peiidently of cases of absence, ignorance "f
1(1 legal rights, or an unwillingness to apply
Bl for Government relief until poverty com
jl pelted, there were instances of inability to

I here are several serious objections to the
bill providing for a iooaj system of offlolsj
rafWnes In this judicial district which lin
been introduced Into the Handily by Mr. i
Languein. it lutborinae Uta appointtnant
of twenty resident lawyein as ofikial ref
eree's lu this city, to whom all refernl'le
causes are to be scut. The light of desig
nating these gentlemen is to be vested in
the Judges who preside over the Gvtiorul
Terms, respectively, of the Supreme Court,
the Superior Court, the Court of OotttttiaO
l'loas. aud the Marine ' 'curt. The referees
are to be paid by fees, which the bill pros
eidag for in considerable detail. These a re
the chief features of the niea-ure, and lu no
rt-spect are they nuy Improvement upon ex
isting provisions ot law.
The tirst question that arises In consider
ing this bill isn doubt us to its constitution
ality. It assumes to givf four Judges In the
city of New York the slo power to appoint
all referees In thl Judicial district. Their
brethren on the bem h, to the number of
nineteen in all. are thus to be deprived of
the right they have hitherto exercised of
appointing referees iu referable cases, where
the parties thstnaeiTea do not agree. V"e
albly this might 1 permissible lu regard to
tho Marin- Court, which elsts onlv by vir
tue of a statute; bul the other courts derive
their powois from the Constitution. Section
0 of thnt Instrument, which relates to the
judiciary of the Stat-, was adopted In lsC9.
It provides that "thefo shall bethe existing
Supreme Court, with general Jurisdiction in
law iin.l equity," subject to the appellate
Jurisdiction of the Court of Appeals; nud
that the Superior Court of the city of New
York and the Court of Common Pleas for the
city and county of New York " I re continued
with the powers und jurisdiction thev
now severally have." When this portion ot
the Oonstit utiou went into effect, Ml powei
existed t'U the purt of each Judge of each o;
tlu-sc courts to appoint reteices lu (Meg
which the law allows to be referred. Wus
not that power Inherent iu the jurisdiction
conferred by the Constitution, aud cau any
thing less than a constitutional amendment
tuke it away ?
Dul aside from this fundamental question,
the pfnposgd method of SSiSCting the ofll
cial referees is extremely objectionable. We
should he glad to s steps taken for tht
total abolition of Judicial patronage, but
this proposition preserves the evil system
while limiting the uumtcr of persons whu
shall enjoy Its privileges. If we are to have
i judicial patronage at all. let it be agerattsd
by twenty-three Judges rather than by four.
Its reservation to the presiding Justices
creates a false distinction winch is deroga
tory to the dignity aud injurious to iLc USO-
fuinessof the other members ol each court.
The salutary rule that judicial officers
sh uld be puid bysnluries rather than by
fit-s Is disregarded by the provisions which
tin- bill makes for the compensation of the
Official referees. Instead of receiving a llxcd
compensation for each day's service, as a
referee does under our present statute, they
arc t" I ".-Paid small fees for each Of a number
of different aote whioh they may be required J
to perform; us, for example, one dollar for j
every attendance und adjournment without
a hearing, three dollars for taking testi
mony, live dollurs for drawing aud execut
ing a referee's deed, and ten ceuts u folio lor
necessary copies of testimony. Tho whole
system of compensation, which now has ut
least the merit of simplicity, would be ren
dered complicated and cumbersome by the I
adoption of this plan.
Whatever reform is needed in Hit- prevail
ing method! of M looting and paying ref
erees, will have to be brought about by a
Very different measure from that which Mr.
Lanom.in has proposed to the Legislature.
