THE DIGNITY OF THE LAW.
THE ADDRESS BV MR. DEPEW TO THE
TALI LAW CLASS.
An Expose or Ansrchy Fallacies of
Prophecy Noble Work Done by Law
yers In the Past and Tbelr Responsi
bilities as to tbs Future.
At the anniversary exercises of tlio Yalo
law School last Monday the following ail
drcss was delivered to the students by
I'linunocy M. IVpcw;
1 do not pmposo to pursue any ol tlio
subject upon which you hnvo been in
tract ed by this learned faculty, nor am 1
picparod to compile with ou with a
thesis upon somo legal question as a part
of Ihc exercises of griuluatlon. The roin
niciicement orator usually addresses bin
W self to the professors and the elder mom-
ben ol the profession, but I came In in I"
apeak to vou. The most joyous of days is
that which closes the doors of the school
and opens tho gateway of the world; the
most apprehensive, tlio one which murks
tho opening of your clioutless olliec; tlio
luippiest, lbs Sol return after .he future is
secure and success assured, lu collate
scenes and association. It is tin-prtvi
le'e of aw and experience to indicate
paths in the fields you are yet to explore,
to point out the daubers which beset
them, and the methods of sate and com
fort able travel. Most of the ideals o( these
clmina hours dot 1 to tin . 1 1 ' Initial
interchange of aspirations and hopes will
be sliatlered against the stern realities of
prsrtioJ life, but their deM ruction will
furnish the lessons (or suro foundations
sie! permanent construction.
At this hour all your thoughts are con
centrated in one word success. K your
construction of succe won honestly an
alysed it would probably mean to moat
minds tho . . Hit of money. The desire
to acipiire protierty ia tho most potent
force in the activities of ojr ttcople. It la
the mainspring of our marvelous develop
ment, and the incentive and reward of
intelligent industry. It la alike the
ciiuait ot the noblest efforts and the
must revolting crime. That man would
be uufaithlul to his familv and to
bis own independence who Jid not use
every honorable ellort and practice every
reasonable crononiy to secure homo and
romia'tenet' lor dr. lining vours. Hut the
liiwtcr who makes thal-hia Bole aim ia an
unworthy melnbor of Ihe noblest ot pro
fession and will never wiu its honors or
rewards.

Ijiws, and not men, are onr governors;
Urn people make the lawa and respect and
enforce their creations, but tbo stability o(
order depends upon tho intelligence o! the
voters. Mere the lawyer's duty Is plain
and the mtasiou clear. Suffrage can, if it
pleases, annihilate property and dissolve
corporations; but tho majority are invest
ors in land or personalty, and would liercolv
defend what they owu. They do pot, wish
tho limit fixed beyond which neither they
nor their children may go. Tho procession

And yet if the lawa wore so framed or
were ao interpreted by tho courts, that any
advantage waa given to one class of cili
icns not equally enjoyed by all, the ma
jority, in sternly seeking a remedy, might
overturn the very Inundations of veiled
rights and and interests, and plunge tho
Commonwealth into chaos. Sen to It that

ness. Declamation is cheap snd tho vo
cabulary of epithet largo and enaily access
ible, but they remedy no evels. An emi
nent jurist said to me recently that many
ambitious lawyers in his Stale hud preached
from the stump snd on the platform that
railroad ownership was robbery, and ita
cohllaestion by special laxatiou and unro
munorative rates a patriotic duly. They

The gilded idiots who dissipate their

volving corresponding obligations lo the

them possible. Hut without the sid ol

PIVOBCK LAW'S ( RITICI8KD,
Rteiun and electricity have made ua one
people, and for commercial put poses unt
iled the world. The rapid and growing
interchanges of nations demand the adopt
ion of the principles and the assimilation
of tho procedure ol tho law all round tho
globe. Tho development of this reform
will bo attended by mom bcniflcent results
than any oilier event ol modern times.
Nations and peoples will bo brought into
those close rclatfons where the higher jus
tice i. ml tho nobler law will attract study
and euthiisiaain, ami new impetus be given
to the regenerating forces o( civization and
liberty. Hut there should be no conflict
of laws between the several States ol tho
Union. Tho preacnt condition of the
divorce statutes aro a disgrace to our juris
prudence and a menace to the (amily. It ia
contrary to the spirit of our Federal compact
as it ia understood today that husband and
wife may be indiasolubly tied together in
one Commonwealth and free to marry
again in another, and their children ho
legitimate iu one jurisdiction and illegiti
mate across the boundary line. While
Ihe different method of creating and
dissolving, ol controlling and taxing cor
orationa, joint stock companies and
trusts, whoae business is spread over
many Stales and the sumo ill all, lead to
confusion, litigation and injustice.
Hut oilier public duties picas upon the
lawyer, besides discussion ami actions
upon gn-at questions ol general interest.
It is his special function as a politician lo
prole, t the Court Irom Ihe inllueiue ol
I Hill tics. 'Ihe revolt against the abuses of
Iho appointing power iu other offices
ended in the extreme of short terms and
frequent elections (or judges. The result
was most nut .linn. tie for tho indep. n l
eiieo ol the judiciary. It made tbo jutlgo
iho servant of the parly bosses, who con
trolled the nuuiiuatiug contentions nnd
created a class of lawyers, without learn
ing, who wem retained for their influence.
Justice was indeed blind when all (he
power ol the judge's parly waa ou the
side ol one litigant, and her vision often
OOUld only ls-eleai. il by ha ting an equal
ill vision ol political counsel, ii'iiucs
againal the hallo! aud tho abuse ol public

universal application, and iU diionaatio:i
ought not lo lie dependant iixin the
claims ol lis-ality or parly servtce. The

preparation for business, when it comes,
are iu tho early years of practice. Tho
