he has shown, not only his kuow'edgu
of law, but his ability to manage his
courts. There is usually In every court
a set of loafers, composed of Smart
Alecks, who take up the room intended
for the members of the bar, tho otliccrs
of the law and tne litigants. These self-important
individuals smoke, talk, rattle
newspapers and comment on tho
of tho court generally. They include
toys, middle-aged and old men,
many of whom should know better, as
men ought to grow wiser as they grow
older. They seem to be prompted solely
by idlo curiosity and are never so
happy as when thoy are listening to a
trial In which they havo no interest
whatever. It is said that ,'Judge Saulley
has disposed with the services of pro
fessional loafers In his courts. There is
no ollice within tho gift of the people of
as much importance as that of circuit
judge. A president, governor or Senator
has the constitutional right to make
a fool of himself, and make mistakes.
His blunders generally ailed only
and if ho can stand it, tho people
can. Tho decisions of a judge, however,
affect tho rights of individuals the
right to life, liberty aud property, and
tliu errors of the head aro visited not upon
the dispenser of justice, but upon
those who have sought justice at his
hands. It is therefore of tho utmost importance
that a judge should be possessed
of a clear head aud an honest heart,
with tho moral courage to do tight regardless
of coneeipienccs; to tako broad
and liberal views of the law instead of
giving importance to technicalities.
Judge Saulley will no doubt prove nn
ornament to the bench, as ho has to tho
Kx Senator George F. Edmonds hns
nn article in Tho Foium upon "Politics
as a Career." Ho Bpeaks of an individual
devoting devoting himself to tho career
of politics in tho same way as that
of farming, trade, manufacture, art, architecture,
law, medioiue, tkj., aro respectively
taken up as the business of
life, according to tho inclination and opportunities
of different uvui. It is rath
er remarkable that a man of tho ability
of tho ox Senator should place tho vocation
of a politician upon a par with that
of farming, trade, manufacture, law,
medicine, stc. Tho ordiinry avocations
of lifo nre presumed to bo for tho betterment
of society as well aa for tho bonelit
of those who engage in them; but this
cannot bu truthfully mid of tho politician.
Tho latter enters upon his pro-
I fessiou with no capital other than pre
sumption and his solo desire is to mako
something out of nothing. Ordiuaiily
ho drift into the tide, prompted solely
by seltlsh considerations, and will givo
up a tried for two untried friends, whenever
it becomes necessary to his success.
Tho career of of tho professional
politicians of tho ago aro not ono
to be envied. They usually become tho
victims of dissipation and nro mere
wrecks upon tho ocean of life, mentally,
