. -ij? ; "3' ' .jwaf r -)- "!. !"i f V i ,- ' 4- - i LANCASTER IA1LY UNTELL1GENCEK, FRIDAY; JANUARY 30, 1880. -! r k ted in -court anil tbc act of 1836 took away all powers of courts te punish, as con cen tempts, publications out of courts he passed te the second subject of consid eration the rules te disbar. Fer the same reasons as lcfere given, .it was un necessary te consider the question as te whether there was any breach of profes sional fidelity in what occurred in court. It seemed te be admitted that there was none. Hence it was only necessary 10 ex amine the question as te whether a cjurt had power te summarily punish a lawyer, for an alleged libelleus publication, made as au editor, concerning a case in which he was net interested in any professional way, and which was ne: pending nor un- detct mined. Upen this most vital part of the case he adopted the line of argument above given and quoted from a most exhaustive brief, involving probably a hundred English and American authoritative judicial opinions. In the course of his argument he said : " I claim that when I became a lawyer I did net lese a single right of citizenship. I claim it is my right outside of the court loom te .speak of any judge or court as any ether citizen. If this were net se hew pewci less members of the bar would be in discussing the merits of aspirants te the judgeship. While ignorant editors or the meanest laymen could discuss this matter the lawyers best qualified te speak concerning and most deeply interested in it could make no criticism upon a corrupt or unfit judge, who aspired te re-election, lest they be arraigned at his bar and sum marily stricken down in their profession." Judge Patterson : It cannot be assumed that any criticism is meant in the authori ties quoted except such as calls in question the integrity of the court. Te ordinary criticism it is of course liable, but when its integrity is attacked its powers are larger. Mr. .Shapley : I will try and convince the court that it has no power even in such cases, beyond its presence, te punish offi cers of court, except as it may punish any ether citizen. Au attorney's office is his property net te be taken from him upon a charge made by a court, determined by a judge as complainant, prosecutor, court and jury, but only after a constitutional trial in which the euene shall be legally established. In au eloquent and logical conclusion, Mr. Shapley dwelt upon the relations of bench and bar, and the importance te the bench as well as te the bar of maintaining the independence of the attorney in his ellice. Te establish the rule that he should be restricted where all ethers have free dom would be a stab at Justice, en her very altar by her own high priest. Te deny te the great body of educated lawyers, most competent te judge of the fitness and integrity of the judiciary, the right te ex press their opinions of it, at the proper time and in the proper place, and when and where all ether people have a right te ex press such opinion, would be a blew at the judiciary itself, and at the independence of the lawyer and the freedom of the press. Te a remark by Mr. Shapley that nearly all leading newspapers bad some lawyers en their stall', whom the doctrine depended en te make these rules absolute would dis bar, Judge I'attcrsen answered that news papers tee often discussed legal questions in a prejudiced and partisan manner. Te which Mr. Shapley rejoined that such reports or comments were generally made by editors who were net lawyers. After the argument had been finished Judge Patterson took the papers in the case and adjourned court until 2 p. in. Nevel r.aw. Wilkesbarre I'liieu-LcadiM. Judge Patterson's law, which holds a lawyer responsible as a lawyer for what he says as an editor, is novel law, and bad law. When a lawyer, Who is also an editor, shall have been formally convicted of crim inal libel, then he, perhaps, ought te be disbarred. Hut a lawyer, who cheeses te be an editor as well, has rights and re sponsibilities as a lawyer, and rights and responsibilities as an editor. What wrong he does as a lawyer be can be punished for as a lawyer. What wrong he does as an editor, he can be punished for as an editor. IJiit it is in conflict with common sense te assume that he can be punished as a law yer for what he docs as an editor, and just as lidiculeus as te assume that he can be punished as an editor for such violations of court ethics as he may be guilty of in bis capacity as a member of the bar. Contempt or Court. Philadelphia Tress. The case of Messrs. Stcinmau and Hen sel, editors of tins Lancaster Intklligkn ckr and members of the Lancaster county bar, who have been ruled te show cause why their names should net be stricken from the list of attorneys, will be argued at Lancaster te-day. The re spondents, in their paper, charged that certain acquittals before Judge Patterson weie procured by " a prostitution of the machinery of justice," and intimated that the judge was a party thereto. This his honor considers a contempt of court, and he proposes te disbar the journalistic at torneys. The common law gave courts large discretionary powers te punish for contempt, but in this state their powers in that respect have been largely curtailed. It appears te be somewhat an open ques tion, however, whether these laws are applicable te attorneys who, as officers of the court, occupy a relation te it distinct from ether men, and whether the special authority of the court ever the as attorneys will extend te them in their actions in a different sphere. The law relative te contempt of court, and what docs net fall within it, was ex haustively considered pre and con. in the impeachment trial of Judge Peck of the Cnited States district court for the district of Missouri before the United StatesSenate in lSul). In this case one Luke E. Law less, a practicing attorney in Judge Peck's court, published in a St. Leuis paper a criticism of one of the judge's opinions, and enumerated eighteen separate errors in law or in fact into which he claimed the court had fallen. Judge Peck immediately cited the publishers of the paper before him te auswer for contempt, but it appearing that Lawless was the author of the offending article, he was substituted, and subse quently sentenced te one day's imprison ment, and was suspended from practice at that court for eighteen months. On the plea that he was outraged and oppressed by this action of the court, Law less memorialized the Heuse of Represent atives, but th judiciary committee, Daniel Webster, chairman, reported adversely en his petition After Webster's transfer te the Senate Geerge McDuffic of Seuth Car olina took up the matter in behalf of Law less, and finally the Heuse voted te im peach Judge Peck for a high misdemeanor. James Buchanan, of Pennsylvania, was chairman of the managers, and William Wirt senior counsel for Judge Peck. By a vote of twenty-one te twenty-two the Sen ate refused te sustain the impeachment, .Mr. Webster's name appearing among these who voted net guilty. It appears te have been settled in this case that it is the inherent power of all courts te vindicate themselves against insult and contempt. Disbarring attor neys forpublicatiens tending te bring the court into discredit has net been of infre quent occurrence in this country. The -propriety of such a measure is one in 2;gard te which men reach conclusions mere through the natural cast and bias of their minds than through strictly logical reasoning. These of whom the liberty of the press seems of such supreme moment that its occasional license should be winked at, sooner than its perfect free dem imperiled, will incline te one view of the case, while these who sec in the re spect paid te Law and the authority exer cised by judicial tribunals the best guar antees of stability and safety, will be slew te approve anything which tends te compromise or belittle the courts or the judges. If a d cisien is founded in error it can be re versed ; if in corruption, the judges can be removed and punished, but te allege error and corruption before the public, or ether wise te denounce the judiciary, is out te invite a disregard of the law and the man dates of the court, and prompt men te set up against them their own untutored judg mei ts. IIew It Strike Him. Venango Spectator. Judge Patterson of Lancaster county has arrested the editors of the Lancaster Ix- tem.igencek, who both happeu te be members of the bar, for editorial ar ticles criticising his action as a judge. Though they published the article as editors, Judge Patterfen wishes te held them responsible as lawyers for an infrac tion of the dignity of the court. It strikes us mat ins Hener lias done mere te impair respect for his court by his arbitrary pro ceedings tl an could be done by all the newspaper articles that ever were written. Waked up tl'IVrenc Passenger. Democratic Sentinei, Kittanning, Pa. A Judge Patterson, of Lancaster, has seen lit te take umbrage at the editors of the Intklligkncer of that city for a criticism printed in that paper recently, in reference te the proper administration of justice in Judge Patterson's quarter ses sions court. His honor directed an order te issue te Messrs. Steinman and Hensel, the editors of the paper, who are also lawyers, te show cause, why they should net be stricken from the list of attorneys for contempt of court ! Contempt of court, in criticising the acts of a district attorney and a judge of the court tlneugh a news paper ! This is an unparalleled procedure in a court of justice ; ami is net author ized either by the law or the constitution. On the contrary this very right is guaranteed by act of Assembly and the organic law. Judge Patterson must think himself the Czar of all the Lancasters and that attorneys have no rights and editors no privileges beyond that of vcssals, that he in his supreme dignity is bound te re spect. If Judge Patterson has been wrong ed he lias his remedy like all ether .citi zens. It lie has been libeled let him pros ecute for libel. If he has been slandered, let him sue for slander, just like ether men, and let a jury of his countrymen de termine the extent of the injury he has or may sustain from the publication of the proceedings in his court and the comments thereon. If he is simply mad, and wishes te vent his spleen upon the editors of the Intklmeiznckk he has "put his feet in it " most effectually ; and has evidently "awakened up the wrong passengers." MATRIMONIAL. The Ifrewn-Myers Nuptial. In yesterday's iNTELLiacscEii were briefly noticed the nuptials of Mr. Clement IJ. Brown, of Philadelphia, and Miss Emily Myers of Norwood, near Columbia. The ceremony took place in the Presbyterian church, the pastor, Rev. Jehn McCoy, offi ciating, assisted by Rev. Dr. Heffman, of Philadelphia. The party in attendance at church was very large and brilliant, em bracing the most select society of Colum bia and Lancaster, and many friends from Philadelphia, Washington and ether cities. The bride was elegantly attired and was attended by the following named brides maids : Miss Clara B. Myers (sister of the bride), Miss Davenport, of Erie, Pa. ; and Miss Mess, of Washing ton, Pa., all of whom looked charm ing. At the conclusion of the wedding services a reception was given at Norwood, where a magnificent banquet, arranged by Augustine, of Philadelphia, was spread. The presents te the bride were many and costly, embracing gems, silverware, bronzes, &c, &c. Among the guests were Hen. Jehn W. Ferney, editor of Progress, Alexander Brown, Phil adelphia, Mrs. Mess and daughter, Wash Wash ten, D. C, Rev. Dr. Heffman and wife, Philadelphia, Samuel Schech, Columbia, and scores of ethers. The reception lasted from 2:"i0 te e:50 p. m., at which time the bridal party took a special car for Phila delphia. Te-day they go te New Yerk, and their wedding trip will take in Bosten and ether places of interest. Democratic Declination, etc. Jehn M. McCulIcy, nominated for judge in the Sixth ward, declines.

Gcerge Wall withdraws his name as a candidate for common council in the Third ward en account of business engage ments, but announces that he shall use his best endeavors te promote the success of the ticket.

Mr. Bees is a candi date for renominatien. In Luck. This morning Mrs. Margaretta Wall, mother of Geerge and Philip Wall, of this city, received, an official communication from the court at Vilbel, Gress Hess Darmstadt, notifying them te appear be fore the court and establish their claim te a valuable property held by said court in trust for some forty years past.
