The decision of Chancellor Nicholson in the matter of the sure
ties of ex-Tax Collector Dougherty makes it seem likely that re
cent laxity in the way of prosecuting the bondsmen of defaulting
public officials was based upon a misconception of the law and the
facts. Many persons who go upon these bonds do so under the ap
parent impression that their signing is a mere formality, having no
particular business significance. Hereafter, they may be more apt
to realize that signing a man's bond is a serious business matter
which means that they are pecuniarily willing to vouch for his
honesty and business capacity.
The colored gentleman who appeared before the meeting of the
Board of Education 011 Monday and demanded "justice" in the
way of the appointment of one of his daughters to the post of pub
lie school teacher, turned out upon inquiry to have three daughters
already engaged in teaching the young idea how to shoot. One of
these other daughters has resigned her position, to be sure, because
her sister was not appointed; which, to say the least, doesn't seem
to have been a very sensible way of getting satisfaction. The
whole affair is rather peculiar, but it may be that the father of all
these daughters knows a good thing when he sees it, and wants the;
Board to help him push it along.
Among the first matters to which the next legislature should
turn its attention, is the substitution of some respectable system of
. . .... . , . , . . , _ .
minor judicial courts 111 place of the existing crude affairs
presided over by magistrates and coroners. The system of magis
trates' courts, iti particular, needs complete alteration. Some of
the justices are able men, some are honest, and some are capable.
There are, however, constant scandals connected with the
administration of justice in some one or the other of these courts.
For instance, certain magistrates are apparently unaware that their
functions are judicial, and act more as the attorneys of plaintiffs
than as judges between parties. Several charges, equivalent to
that of compounding misdemeanors have been made against in
cumbents, and, as a whole, the system, with its secret records, and
other disadvantages, might be much improved.
