Courts and Common Sense
The Corvallis Gazette-Times, whose veneration for courts
id exceeded only by its idolatry of corporations, takes ex-
ception to the assertion of the The Capital Journal that the
decision of Illinois courts holding that there is no divine
right of kings statute to shield a governor from answering
for crimes, was "remarkable for its common sense" and
We don't think there is anything remarkable about It. All
court decisions that finally become the accepted law of the land
are founded on common sense.
Court decisions are based upon precedent and pressure of
public opinion and common sense is not considered as any
part of judicial training or practice. When an occasional
judge, like Henry McGinn, replaces precedent with com
mon sense, in order that justice may obtain, he is regarded;
with legal horror. Common sense is so rare in courts that itsj
exercise is news news consisting in the presentation of thej
What some bewigged jurist held some musty centuries
ago is of more moment in most any American court than!
wuuuvu-Bciiae ; cumiicung opinion oi 4U anierent courts
in as many states is more important : in fact the lawyer
that can dig-out the most citations of previous decisions to
favor his stand, wins his case and the lawyer who bases his
appeal upon common sense is predestined to failure.
Courts were primarily devised to protect vested rights and
feudal privileges. Administration of justice rested with the
king and the first duty of the court was to shield the divine
right of kings and their appointees, including the courts.
Though the evolution of democracy has gradually altered the
character of courts to conform, they have never entirely lost
the old view-point as reflected in the prestige of precedent
and in the super-importance of technicality and quibble.
When a court holds that the divine right doctrine does not
apply to the executive head of the state, who must be held
accountable for sins as other citizens are, it is a commensense
decision although doubtless highly displeasing to the
Gazette-Times, which probably views it with consternation
and dismay as an attack upon vested rights and the sancity

Then and Now
Mark Sullivan, political writer, has discovered that "The
naming of America's representatives in the coming inter
national disarmament conference at Washington is wholly
President Harding's prerogative, and that the senate does
not have the privilege of 'advice and consent'."
So was the naming of America's representatives at the
Paris peace conference the exclusive prerogative of the
president yet because the president did not consult the
senate on the appointments, the senate killed the peace
treaty while denouncing the executive as a usurper and
tyrant and the republican press of the country echoed the
It is to be hoped that President Harding escapes more
fortunately than his predecessor and that when disarma
ment treaties are prepared that the senate will not kill them
merely because the senate was not consulted in the appoint
ment or proceedure. In this instance the small minds of the
senate should not seek to make history repeat itself.

Parson Abiel Haile
Lot ub not love In word, neither In tongue; but In deed and In
truth." 1 John 3-18.
l.lp sorvlce has caused more shipwrecks than any other sort of
mishap. Ardent tongue wagging devotion Is the little playmate of
Up sorvlce ond they are marvels In their way. In his text we use to
day, John clearly defined treason, by Inference. The law contem
plates treason as the most abased of crime. Murder Is a bailable
offence; treason is not. The reason is that u murder may be done In
the heat of passion, with great provocation either real or fancied.
Hut treason never i. doue on the spur of a moment. Before one can
commit treason to Ood, state or brethern, one first must have assumed
the obligation of loyalty. Thus when treason is done, a trust Is be
trayed. A- love for wlfo, or sweetheart Is propriety, employer, state,
country of Ood Is a serious affair. Protestations of abiding affection
are not novel but It Is a dangerous habit to acquire. It arouses the
suspicions of the mentally alert when an associate in lifu punctuates
time with declarations of love, ...d songs of adulation. Hut the really
sincere husband, betrother, employee, soldier of slate or church, or
boy or girl, prove .a wholesome and righteous devotion by deeds
establishing loyalty, and an honesty of attachment. To the boy or
girl starting In life's battle, no greater axiom exists than John's
I Inferential admonition to sincerity. From cover to cover, the Word
teema with adjurations to all to be stouthearted and true, and In no
text Is It more forcibly put than in John's clear differential between

loyal because of endless chatter of love, and that abiding dependable.
