: Robert Mantell, who la presenting a
week of Shakespearean plays at the
Heilig theatre, has consented to
change the bill previously announced
for Saturday night, "Othello" to "Mac

earnest solicitation of the pupils of the
high schools and academics in this city
who haje taken up the study of "Mac
beth," together with one or two Shake
spearean clubs who are likewise read
ing the above play, Following is the
correct presentation of plays: Tonight,
8:15 o'clock, "Richelieu"; this after
noon, special price matinee, "The Mer

"Now for the machinery by which
these ends are to be achieved. ,Let me

ber' that while machinery is important,
each community has the absolute right
to detirmine for Itself what that ma
chinery shall be, ; subject only to the
fundamental law of the nation as ex
pressed in the constitution of the
United States. Massachusetts has the
right to have appointive; Judges who
serve during good behavior, subject to
removal, "not by impeachment, but by
simple majority vote of the two bouses
of the legislature whenever the repre
sentatives of tha people feel that the
needs of the people require such removal.
New York has the right to have a long
term elective Judiciary. ' Ohio has the
right to have sort term elective Judi

Oregon and Arizona have each and every
one of them the right, to have a short
term elective Judiciary with, the recall,

TThen remains the question of the re
call of Judges. One of the ablest Jurists
In the -United States, veteran in the
service to the" people, recently wrote
me as follows on this subject: There
are two causes of the agitation for the
recall as applied to Judges. First, the
administration of Justice has withdrawn
from' life and become artificial and tech
nical, The recall Is not so much a re
call of Judges from office 'as it is a re
call of the administration of Justice
back to life, so that it shall become, as
it ought, to be, the most efficient of all
agencies for making this earth a better
place to live in. Judges have set their
rules above life. Like tho Pharisees of
old, they have said, "the people be ac
cursed; they know not the law" (that la
our rule).' - " ; r '
"I do not believe in adopting the re
call save as a last resort, when It has
become clearly evident that no other
course will achieve the desired result
But either he recall will have to be
adopted, or else It wilt have to be made
much easier than It now is to get rid,
not merely of a bad Judge, , but of a
Judge who, however virtuous, has grown
so out of touch with social needs and
facts that he Is unfit to longer render
good service on the bench.
Impeachment Not Successful.
- "It is.' nonsense to say that impeach
ment meetssfthe difficulty. In actual
practice, we have found that impeach
ment does not work. ; . ,
"Therefore" we 1 should be cautious
about recalling the Judge, and we should
be cautious about interfering "lh any
way with the Judge In decisions which
he 'makes In the ordinary course as be-
