j man i'ii:i,irs diccisiox.
Says (lie Chicago Inter-Ocean :
'There may be sonic honest, nnd se
vere deiiunriationa of .Jtidfre Field's
decision in the. matter of Senator Stan
ford and (lie I'aeille Kaihvny Coininis- i
sion. hnl those, who think will per
ceive at. once, nnd (hose who think
lazily and honestly will perceive on i
second or third cogitation, that the
nation again ha reason to congratu
late it self on tho existence of a Su
preme (,'oiirt .
Kor what the decision of Mr. Justice
Field .cttlcs- i no more, or lest, than
this, that the I'liilcd States jtcivorn
mcnl, or n co-ordinnlo branch thereof ,
shall not he to any vitizeu of tho
rnitcd-Stntes what an inquisitor of
Spain once was to Spaniards filial the
force of congress shall be checked by
the force of the common law; tint no
man h ill be compolled to furnish
proof for the prosecution of u crime or
misdemeanor whereof he is suspected.
There is a prejudice against the I'aeille
lhiihvay just now, whether well or ill
founded it mutters not, and therefore
it has been asserted that SeuatorStan
ford and others should lie "compell
ed " to answer any and all questions
propounded by the congressional com
mittee. To this the supreme court
replies, l S rout is a rongrcss-i'innl com
niitlee, but greater is the law of the
My the very term of its creation the
committee is lusi I Iiuii the law, for it
is instructed to call upon 'any of the
circuit, or district courts of the United
Slates" to punish for contempt any
and all persons who may refuse to
bring books and papers for its inspec
tion or to answer any questions pro
pounded by it. In ( it is plain that
the courts cannot do for tho commis
sion that which they could not do tor
themselves, and eourts canuot compel
persons to lay a foundation for their
own prosecution , either by the dis
closure of books or papers or by nn
wers to questions. That is the old,
barbarous, cruel and obsolete method;
U is the inquisitorial , as opposed by
tho judicial, way of procedure; it sur
vives in no English speaking country ,
and only in iho Austrian provinces of
of (!erma:iic speech.
In some sort the duties of the com
mission are akin to (hose of the grand
jury, it is a body of iuqtiirv as to the
alleged or possible infractions of the
law. Now, no prosecuting attorney
Would be foolish enough to insist that
a suspected person should be compell
ed to supply a grand jurv with materi
al for his own imlicimcul. And this
is exactly what the committed has as
sumed that i. is empowered to do.
The doctrine is monstrous.
