Jurist's Last Act in Supreme
Court Is Tribute to Late
Judca Stewart "
Laying aside the ermine after twenty
one years on tho bench of the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania, Chief Justice J.
Hay Brown delivered his valedictory
this morning.
His last opinions read, after the
"O yez" of the crier had convened the
Philadelphia period of the courts, the
chief justice settled back in his chair
and bowed his head. After him his
colleagues read their opinions.
Adjusting his gold eyeglasses, he who
was to be chief Justice no longer, be
gan speaking of the past. There looked
down upon him the marble busts of
John Bannister Oibson and Oeorge
Shnrsvvood, who, too, in their time, had
distinguished that bench. Around the
walls were pictures in oils of other
jurists who had sat there.
Before him at the bar, sat the latest
mnn appointed to the bench, former At
torney General William I. Schaffer, of
Near Justice Schaeffer sat Justice
Silvester B. Sadler, of Carlisle, who
elected in November, and was
n In this morning In the chambers
of the iustlces
"Gentlemen of the bar," Chief Jus
tice Brown said, as he cast his eyes
over the slithering that filled the cham
ber, "It scernB but yesterday Blnce I

moments I leave forever,

Through all his four-score years he1
lived with honor. It is fitting, however.
for us too give expression to our esteem
for his berviccs to the public during

The chief justice then paid tribute to
tho public life of Justice Stewart, from
the tline he first entered the Unlou
Army until he sat upon the Supremo
Court bench. Justice Stewart is suc

were outplayed clearly by the Yankees.
The match was a brilliant contest an
epic In the history of the gnme. played
under a sky bright with the sun of
southern summer.

upon Mr. Harding a document showing
just how fnr thN government should

visit significant.
Regarded ns Senate's IflMmarnm ,
Hut thut Is not all Mr. Knox'a
statement. v,hlie ostensibly one f his
personal views, bears the marks of con
ference nnd consultation. There is
little doubt thnt It represents the view
of tho Republicans in the Senate. The
word "ultimatum" Is much nhused, but
the statement of Mr. Knox rends much

, Kno Kpliilns His Poiition
"The passage of this resolution, as It
is proposed to be amended." said Sen
ntor Knox, "would provide a simple
unci customnr.v method of adjusting
our relations with I'lcrniiinj . The
declaration of u policj hiicIi as is
indicated, followed by n slmilnr dec
laration 1 the other tintlons, would
constitute nn association of nations
hound together by a common purpose
thut Ihs I hnvp snid on another occu
fionl neither parchment, sealing, slgua
tures uor blue ribbons could ninkc more

"Such a declaration of policy would
not interfere with the codification of
, international law, the creation of a
court to decide international differences
,of n justiciable character, the appoint
ment of commissions to investigate po
litical iiucstiuns thnt threaten wnr for
tne imrponc of enlightening tho public
opinion of the world upon the merits
of the ipiestions involved, or any other
measures. Including disarmament, that
might be agreed upon by the nations to
lessen the probability of war."
To see that there Is a common origin
uf this statement nnd that there is a
general agreement hack of it. It Is only
necensnrv to ncnll that Senator Poin
dexter when here used the same words
as Mr Knox, "commii-sions to investi
gate political disputes," and that Sen
ator McOimlicr. on his visit indicated
lii.s support of the same general pro
grnm of international association which
should not tnke the form of a perma
nent organisation.
Knox and Harding Disagmo
What Mr. Knox outlines is interna
tional association which shall be n new
declaration of a common purpose and
which niiiiii inn or einooiiieii in tn
form of u league or parliament or per
mauent conference. He mijs "such a
declaration of pollc) (ns the promire
of tlie friends of civilization to co.
operate for its defense) would be an as
sociation of nutions bound together for
n common purpose."
Every Indication here in Marlon is
that President-elect Harding bus been
