Kansas Ottjr, A plea for the Indc penitence of the Judiciary was made by Horace E. Doomor, chief Justice of the bnva supreme couit, In an ad dress baton the MltOOIIll Bar associ ation. "The Importance of our Judiciary." fudge Deemer said, "Is threatened by the growing ttttrtlTtllttt of the peo pic. "Just as In earlier centuries king sought to Intimidate the Judiciary, now the people, Inning wrested the sovereign power from kings, are com lug also inlo that age-old notion of i everting ln tovcrelgu power uu j trammeled " Absolute independence of judges, I Judge Dbomi r declared, it vital to tbo I Ufa of tbo country's Institutions. It is true, j), said, that Judges nre subjected to Influencei other than I (hose of public opinion, but this could and should b. checked by Impeach 1 inent, , "Shocking Conduct of Sone Judges." "The shocking conduct of nam? ' judges." II. e speaker said, "has an tagoulK i public opinion and merits impeachment. "Public sentiment makes llself felt In the judicial system, nnd Is an In RuenOt to ilisturli tha balance of jus tice. I know of decisions that would have been different hut for the lnlru--Ion of this outside influence. This Is to he deplored." lodge Doomor declared blmealf op- I posed to the recall of Judges and ju i dlOial decision,.. The recall of judicial decisions also I wns opposed in a speech by lodge Frank K Dunn, chief of the supreme court of Illinois. j Under our theory of government," I hi suld, "the people may do as they I ( boose, and may. If they will, make i the decisions of courts subject to re view by popular election. "Hut it we do this we will depart from the principle ol a limited consti tution iini! adopt the French notion contained In the declaration of the rights of men." More Training for Lawyers Advised. Kansas City. As one means of al- i li rlatiug "the widespread dlssatisfar- i lion With tht administration of Justice I in court of law," and "clamorous agi- I 'ation foi reform," Dr. Hanley (). Hud- I tOU of the law department of the l ul verslty of Missouri, addressing the an- . mini meeting of the Missouri liar as- .delation, made a plea for broader ed ucation ut young lawyorg am! a rais ing of standards requited for admis sion to the bar. Lawyers, he said, are admitted to I practice with far less preparation than must be offered by medical students before Uu y are allowed to practice motticlMi Why, he asked, should not the client who engages un attorney bo assured of as full protection as the pa tient who culls a doctor? .Most states require that a young doctor shall have completed a high school course and covered n four-year course In medi cine, while a young attorney may be admitted to the bar iu Missouri with merely i grammar school education, the speaker said. In its requirement! for admission to the bar, Missouri, he said, is behind most of her sister states. j. Women Quarrel, One Shot.
