Judge William L. Dickson, of the
Common Pleas Court at Cincinnati,
Ohio recently delivered an address
on tile Hiibject of the recall ot Judges.
Ho gives some clear and forceful rea
sons against It. We deem his ad
dress worthy of republication. It
Ib as follows:
In this country the foundation of
law Is a constitution national or
state. The constitution is the will
of the people the will of the ma
jority expressed In their sober mo
menta, carefully and with intent to
protect all the people, Including the
minority. If the will of the majority,
too often considered the will of the
people, were always to obtain there
would be no need of a constitution.
It Ib this will of tho majority, the
constitution protecting tho minority,
which gives us the only form of gov
ernment of nil tho people, for all of
the people and by all of the people.
This form of government in tho only
real liberty and union, one and in
separable. A union implies, means,
restraint, mutual concessions, by all,
for all. These mutual concessions,
restraints, under a constitution, mean
the law, and without which there can
"be no liberty. The will of an unre
strained majority Is tho rule of a
mob, Ib a constant revolution, un
certainty, national and state indiges
tion, business depression and ulti
mate ruin.
We are nil in favor of tho rule of
the people. But what kind of rule;
and by how tunny people? Certainly
some fixed rule, and certainly a rule
3iy all tho people. Any fixed rule of
living Is a law. The fixed rule then
Is tho taw. By nil the people means
tho majority and the minority. That
Ib, tho majority restrained by u rule
-tho law. Hence It Is easily seen
that a government of, by and for the
people, liberty and union, can begin
iiid continue only under tho law.
The law must be supreme or all is
A judge Is required to take an oath
of office. In this oath he sweara to
support the constitution and the laws
hanging upon It. This oath Is re
quired by tho peoplo. The source and
limit of his powers are the law j
made by the people. He swears to
obey the law as It Is, not as It should
h lie tan.Tot go outside of or faster
than the law. His duty Is to keep
r breast of the law, not nbreust of the
lines. AH that cu.n rightly be re
ctii;vd of the Judge is reasonable con
duct in his office, jtameiy, such con
duct as an ordinarily reasonable man
would do under the same circum
stances, namely, common honesty and
a common knowledge of the law.
Tho judge Interprets the law. His'
position Is and must be Biipreme In
a land of law,, liberty, and union.
Cnfortunuteluy the judge Is human.
Hence ho must err or he would be
devlne. The public must expect from
hfm, therefore, only human, common
honesty, common Intelligence and a
common knowledge of the law. The
law Is a science, a common knowledge
of which requires somo Intelligence
and some study. This study is want
ing In the. majority of the people and
in the majority of the press. The
science of the Jaw, like the science
of medicine, chemistry, engineering,
astronomy, etc., can not be known
by the masses. There Is a royal road
to the knowledge of any science. A
scientific man is made, not horn.
Should this unrestrained, untutor
ed (in the law) majority of the peo
ple und of the press attack the judge?
Criticize? Yes! Hut let It be just
criticism und that, too, based upon
some knowledge, l.vt It not be for
gotten that an attack upon a Judge
is easy and always hits ready, eager,
receptive and sympathetic audience.
When a Judge decides an Issue one
side must lose. Fifty per cent of the
litigants damn the judge, twenty-five
per cent of the litigants, when they
consider tho cost, pay the fiddler,
Join the fifty per cent, and the othe
twenty-five per cent of the litigant"
always claim the case was won bv
them on Its merits and forget the
judge and dispute the lawyer's bill.
Tho Indiscriminate attacking of the
Judge by the press and the people Is
one of the fads of today. Hence we
see the horribl assassinations In Vir
ginia a complete recall not only
of the Judge, but of the entire ma
chinery of Justice. Effective at least.
One of the attributes of the judge;
Is honesty. An ordinary judge of
common honesty ought to respect his
oath rather, must respect his oath
or ho a perjurer. This oath demands
obedience to tho law made by the
people, tho unrestrained majority.
the law that Is, as it is, not ns It
should be, or as desired. Tho Judge
administers justice according to law
fixed known luw whether the
siune bo right or wrong. If the law
be wrong, the restrained majority in
Its Rober moment must chango it,
not the Judge. A judge who obeys
l w unv rldled d wire of mi uner
stralned demagoguo majority violates
his oath, commits perjury and should
be Impeached and Imprisoned. Shall
a, judge who refuses to obey this un
bridled desire of the cultltude refus
es to be a perjurer be subject to re
call? Do the people of this country
want as judge a man who respects
his oath of office, or a coward the
mere puppet of a mob and the yellow
