KEPT JUDGES SHOULD WEAR BRAS
COLLARS JUST LIKE DOG
And Lawyers Who Are Legal Prostitutes Should Be
Segregated A Just Judge Is Entitled to a Halo.
BY N. D. COCHRAN
Educated ignorance is sometimes entertaining and always amusing.
In Chicago the Inter-Ocean should be designated as the official organ of
educated ignorance and standpat reactionaryism.
When you want to get the point of view of the select few who think
God made this world especially for them, and that the many were only,,
created to do the dirty work, just read the editorial columns of the Inter
Ocean. Here's an extract from, an Inter-Ocean editorial on "How to Get Better
N "The recall of -judges will not solve the problem. It would only mean
that the voice of the mob would be substituted for impartial justice. Judges
elected subject to recall will, since they are but human, truckle to the fickle
.notions of majorities. They will not stand unflinchingly for the right, which
is frequently opposed tothe temporary popular whim."
By the voice of the mob the Inter-Ocean means the voibe of the people,
but evidently takes no stock in the old saying that the yoice of the people
is the voice of God. ,
The writer who thinks of the people.in a democracy as the mob would
naturally feel that the voice of the" "rich was the voice of God, and hold the
opinion of Baer, the coal baron, who said in effect that God in 'his divine
wisdom had selected a few to rule over the many.
