Justice of Peace System Un
der Fire in Referen
dum Campaign.
Special Dispatch to The Star
CINCINNATI, October 31. Those
• ifetv-first advocates who worn lh.it I
•‘booze and gasoline won't mix" have j
overlooked . the potentialities of Ohio
polities. Liquor and automohiie fuel j
have produced a strange blend ini
the Buckeye State, where oddities of
politics have been the rule, rattier j
than the exception, for many years.
It all came about through the ref
erendum *>n the Marshall bill, which
Ohio voters "ill ratify or defeat No
vein her S. And today there is no
issue m any pari of the state that I
eclipses in interest this measure, i
which its opponents term "an effort !
of the Legislature to overrule the 1
Supreme Court of the Coiled States."
fh° bill, the only issue on the
ticket that voters discuss, resulted
from the decision of, Chief Justice
Taft that "it is unconstitutional foi
any man to be tried by a court that
has a pecuniary interest in the out
come of the case." The issue arose
from the arrest of Fid ward Tumey of
North College Hill, near Cincinnati,
on a charge of possessing liquor.
The effect of the Taft decision was I
to knock out the hundreds of dry law
and speed trap courts presided over'
by justices of the ooae- and village
mayors. Under Ohio laws magistrates •
vs both classes have jurisdiction
throughout their counti s, hence
pround each city of importance there I
sprang up "kangaroo" courts, into j
which urban residents were tak-m by
rural constables. No juries were per
mitted. and th<* only .'oters who had
a chance to "get even" wit It th’justic e j ,
or mayo, were those in his village or i
So far the liquor phase predomi- j
nated. but the Ohio Automobile Asso- j
ciation entered the case with the gaso- 1
line angle as soon as the Legislature j
'fussed a bill drafted by the AtUi-Sa- j
l*>«n League and sponsored by Senator j
L. T. Marshall of Xenia. This meas- j
tire provides that justices and mayors |
may collect up to $250 a month from
the fines collected from prisoners con
victed in their courts. This, of course. 1
preserved the salient feature of the j
law knocked out by Chief Justice j
Taft's decision—the provision that the j
dry court would profit to the extent j
of $2-vt a month—by finding the pris- \
oners guilty.
The organized motorists, carefully I
s adding the wet-nnd-dry side of the
argument. entered the campaign
against ilm Marshall bill to prevent >
revival of the justiee-of-the-peaee sys- j
Attorney General Edward C. Turner,
who is leading the tight against rati- j
liration of the bill, has challenged the
drvs to present one able lawyer who
will defend the measure and deny that
it fosters "partiality, perjury and
plunder." In Piquta. a debate before
the Ministerial Association was con
ducted behind closed doors. Although
tlm participants were the Anti-Saloon
League's chief attorney and a promin
ent State Senator, nobody has been
found who will tell what was said. In j
Cincinnati an even more striking "de- j
bate took place—the Methodist Mini- 1
sters' Association heard one side and |
then refused to let the opponent of
the Marshall bill talk.
A third peculiarity of the situation
is that Gov. A. '. Donahey, after |
writing what read like a scathing j
veto message, allowed the bill to be
come a law without signing it. The j
governor’s friends, however, explain i
this-by saying that Donahey wished
to let the voters pass on the measure.
