THE ELECTION OF THE JUDGE
It is right that much interest should be taken in the election of a judge
for the Civil District Court to fill a vacancy caused by the death of the
Honorable George Theard. This position is o important that the man who
receives the vote of the people should go into office independent of any
promisesl or obligation to any one. The position of judge of any court should
be as far removed from political influences as possible. If the position could
bhe entirely divorced from polities, so much the better: but this will never
come about until judges are elected for life.
In the coming primary word has been given by both factions of the
Democratic Party in New Orleans that they would keep "hands off" in this
race. and leave the selection of the judge to the people, but the Times
Picayune brings to light that the regular Democratic Party. or the so-called
oring," has made efforts through its ward leaders to throw their strength
to Wynne G. Rogers. If this is the fact, and it can be proved, it will do
much towards defeating the Ring in the coming city primary in September.
We are unwilling to believe that Mayor Behrman is a party to this double
rossing, if it does exist. Wnde understand that the mayor has given his word
that there would be "hands oft' in this primary, arnd we are unwilling to
believe to the contrary so far as he is personally conlerned. But the ques
tion is asked why does not Mayor Behrman insist that the other ward leaders
act I the same spirit as hie the mayor, is acting in this respect.' We be
liove it is unjust to bring charges of this kind, unless these charges can be
poesitively proved. Unless further evidence is brought to the surface in thi
respect, we are willing to accept as established that neither of the Demo
cratic factious have made an endorsement for judge.
The gea tleen who have announced their candidacy for this judgeship
re all capable men and i any faction of the city should decide as to which
of the candidates is best fitted for the position, we believe that faction
should be represented by the lawyers of the city, who are in the best posi
tios t o say which of the candidates should receive the endorsement nf both
We believe that the city of New Orleans would be best served in the
selection of this judge by having this selection made by a vote of the lawyers
and judges practicing in an iitd affilited with the local bar.

To The White
I am a candidate to succeed Judge George H.
Theard as one of the Judges of the Civil District Court,
and solicit youtr support of my candidacy.
When I determined to be a candidate, I sent to
the members of the New Orleans Bar a circular letter,
setting forth certain things I would do, if elected judge;
these signed promises were well received by my fellow
lawyers, but the Democratic voters of this city have the
right to know in plain words, easily understood, my
views as to the duties of a judge.
A judge must be impartial, fair-minded and even tempered; he should know the
t law and his decision must rest on the evidence legally admitted; but one could fulfill all
the above conditions and still be a poop judge, so far as the public is concerned.
The greatest evil to be corrected is the long delay in terminating litigation. This
can be overcome in large measure by a judge, who would strictly enforce the law as to
the continuance of cases, who would give more hours each day to the actual trial of
11 suits, and who, after submission of the cause, would decide promptly the questions at issue
t -so that, if he erred, the case could be speedel on its way to a higher court. These things
I solemnly promise to do, if, by your Support, I am the successful candidate in the primary
of March 2nd, 1920.
I have been an active practitioner at the local Bar for 3o years, have been fairly suc
cessful in my practice, and believe my standing as a lawyer, my education and legal train
ing qualify me to fill, in a manner satisfactory to the public, the office for which I am a
I do not represent any large corporations, as was unfortunately intimated in a pub
lication made some days ago.
