Judge Patterson, of Lancaster county,
entered a rule last week en Messrs. Stein
nian and Ilensel, editors of the Lancaster
Ixtelligexcf.ij, who happened also te he
members of the bar of that county, te
show cause whv they should net answer
for contempt of court, and why their
names should net be stricken from the list
of attorneys. The alleged contempt con
sisted in certain strictures en the court by
the IxTELi.ier.xcEK, in reference te the
peculiar manner in which a whisky prose
cution was disposed of with the consent of
Judge Patterson. If his honor believed
that the article iti the IXTELi.ir.EXcnu was
libelous, he had precisely the same remedy
at law that every ether man has, and if he
was afraid te submit his case te the judg
ment of a jury, he will find, we doubt net,
befeie he gets through with his Star Cham
ber proceeding against Steitiman and Ilen
sel as editors, that he committed the
greatest mistake of his life. If lawyers
can e stricken lrem the roll el attorneys
simply because of their criticism of a court
as editors, that fact ought te be ascer
tained and made clear by the highest judi
cial authority in the state. An act of
Assembly was passed last May en this
very subject, of which the editeis of the
IxTELLiOEXCEit will, of course, at the
proper time avail themselves, should it be
come necessary. Who struck the immortal
Billy Patterson has never yet been found

termined is, did Steiuman and Ilensel ac
complish the feat by. bringing the ceuit

Huntingdon Monitor.
Judge Patterson last week summoned
Messrs. Ilensel and Steiuman, editors of
the Lancaster Intelligencer, befeie him
te answer for contempt, and when they
appeared in court he awarded a rule te
show cause why their names should net be
stricken from the list of attorneys. The
IxTELL'GEXcEit in speaking of a case
which had been tried in the criminal court
of Lancaster county said that the defend
ant's acquittal had been secured " by a
prostitution of the machinery of justice te
wive the exigencies of the llepublican
party. But as all the parties implicated,
as well as the judges, belong te that party,
the court is unanimous for once that it
need take no cognizance of the imposition
practiced upon it and the disgrace attach
ing te it." This criticism aroused the
anger of Judge Patterson, and he resolved
te execute fierce vengeance en the editors,
who are members of the Lancaster bar.
Instead of instituting a prosecution against
them for libel, and compelling them te an
swer the charge before an impartial com I
and jury of their countrymen. Judge
Patterson has signified his intention te act
the part of prosecutor, judge and the jury
in the trial of the case. It cannot be that
such judicial despotism as this will be tel
erated in Pennsylvania. If any wrong has

himself in a pitiable prcdiciment, cannot

legal right te award it.
About Judges ill General.
Easten Free Pres.
Judge Patterson, of Lancaster, has been
taught a lessen he may well heed. If he!
has net availed himself of this opportunity j
te add te his stock te knowledge, ether
judges had better take notice net te use !
Star Chamber methods in dealing with !
editors 01 newsiapcrs ler imaginary con
tempt of ceuit and if the court be really
contemptible the greater need for
chariness in the use of arbitary powers.
If a judge is libc'ctl by a newspaper
he must use the same means for
his vindication that any ether citizen
must use, than whom he is no better and
no .worse in the eye of the law. In the
case of some rctnarks'madc by the Lancas
ter Intelligence!!, which were prsubly
libelous, unjust and false, Judge Patter
son assumed airs of having quicker ways
of protecting his reputation than the law
gives te ordinary men, because he was a
judge. He has shown himself te be werse
than any specification alleged against him
a judge with' peer judgment. His pro
ceeding will fritter out, and while the
editors will escape he will have the mem
ory of his error for his pains. It is bad
policy ferjudges te set up te be tee smart ;
they de net figure well in that direction in
a state where there are se many news
papers as in Pennsylvania. ?
If Mr. F. B. Gewcn has been talking
rashly about the supreme court of Penn
sylvania and the corruption of its justices,
he ought te be called upon te explain. We
hope he is wrong; it would be foolish te be
wrong in such a matter, and foolish he is
net. Bight or wrong, however, te senti
ments credited te him elsewhere will be be
lieved by a large portion of the public se
long as supreme court judges ride 011 free
passes and railroads make money out of
their decisions, by previously calculating
en them. Is it possible that this shame,
se boldly and defiantly shouted, cannot be
shown te be slanderous ? Let us have the
answer before election time.
Tlie Contempt Case.
"A Listener" in the Examiner and Express.
Yeu will oblige one who was a listener
yesterday, te the legal argument in the
case new engrossing public attention, te
insert a quotation which the learned gen
tleman of Philadelphia failed te quote. I
quote it for him, and our community may
then begin te sec that there arc two sides
te the question new engaging public at
tention. I quote from 5 Watts and Ser
geant, page 274, the opinion in which was
delivered by Judge Bedgcrs, of Pennsyl
vania. "In Austin and ethers (e Rewle 191) it
is held that it is a breach of professional
fidelity te attack the proceedings of the
court for impure and improper purposes,
through the medium of the public press;
for such an offence the court; may properly
exercise the power given them te suspend
or expel an attorney from his eflice. Indeed,
without this power and its occasional exer
cise, the -courts themselves would be
brought into public odium and contempt."

fersets the Law of 1879.
BeRefente Watchmam.
The whole proceeding was most discred
itable en the part of the judge, and any
lawyer of ability in the country will agree
with us, if he hesitates te say se. And
here is where the weakness and imperfec
tion of our judiciary system manifests it
self most fercibl v. Lawyers de net alwavs
dare te say what they think when by se
doing they may bring themselves into dis
agreeable centlict with a judge who has se
mucn arbitrary power which some de net
hesitate te use, as gentlemen of the bar very
well knew, and has been practically de de
menstated te these of Lancaster.
Judge Patterson has no mere control in
his judicial capacity ever these gentlemen
in their capacity as editors, than he has
ever any ether citizen. This fact is tee
plain for argument or demonstration. But,
suppose he presumes te exercise an un
doubted power though it be net supported
by right : Who is te prevent it ? He can,
we doubt net, dismiss these gentlemen
from the bar, and hew are they te help
themselves:' If they were obscure attor
neys in a country town, and without
means or friends, they would have no re
dress, and their case would probably never
be heard of where it could at all affect the
parties concerned. As it is, the.-e men arc
in a position te make a fight, ami one that
is sure te be dainajrin-r te their adversary I
eventually. Yet, except for the moral
effect of public opinion, we de net see
what power these lawyer-editors could ex
ercise as against the most arbitrarily un
just action the judge might have the har
dihood te carry out. They could net pre
vent the immediate wrong te themselves,
and their only present comfort would be
the assurance that time, effort, friends and
an aroused public would net only in the
sequel right them but also their persecu
tor. Still, the means by which the could
be righted would be, at the best, a round
about and diilicult process, and would net
be within the reach of many a poorer at
torney who might be compelled te suffi r
m silence under most palpable wrong.
That such things are possible demonstrates
that our system of administering the law
is unity, and we arc assured that there is
110 wrong or defect, clearly perceived te be
such, but what ihay be remedied.

The Voice of the Press.
u
Spirit et Berk-.
The ease of the editors of the Lancaster
Intelligencer, who are also practicing
attorneys at the Lancaster bar, has attract
ed numerous comments from the press of
Pennsylvania and ether states, and in no
instance that has come under our observa
tion has the summary preceding of Judge
Patterson been approved. On the contra
ry, it has been condemned in mere or less
positive terms by the voice of the whole
press, Republican, Democratic and
Independent. -
Twe questions here arise : Hew far can
the judges of our courts claim immunity
from criticism of their eilieial acts".' And,
aie editors who happen te be also attor
neys, se be held responsible an attorneys
for any printed publications they may
make in reference te matters pei tabling
te judicial proceedings '.' Ne one, in these
days, will claim that judges are seated se
high above their fellow men as te be
beyond the reach of fair and honest criti
cism. If they were, then our courts would
be a sole and singular exception te the
rule which is clearly laid down in the
constitution that "The printing press
shall be free te every person who
may undertake te examine the pro
ceedings of the Legislature, or of any
branch of government, and no law shall
ever be made te restrain the right
thereof." "Every citizen
sulect c ,m.t '
edJ" being rcspel.sib
111.1J ui'Bi) speair, write aim print en any
eeeeuings net except-
cspensiblc ler the abuse of
that liberty. " .New, if the editors of the
Intelligencer, in their criticisms upon
the Snyder cases, had abused the liberty
which the constitution guarantees te them,
Judge Patterson had his remedy te hand,
by a prosecution for libel. But that he
should presume te call men te account as
lawyers, for what they have said as editors
or, in ether words, that editors, when they
also assume the profession of attorneys, shall
be held te have divested themselves alto
gether of the right te freely print their
opinions upon matters that occur in court
is a new and dangerous doctrine, and
one which, if admitted, places the judge
above law and constitution, and makes
him the irresponsible minister of his own
arbitrary will. The printed words of the
Lancaster Intelligencer may or may net
be libelous of that, net being acquainted
with all the facts and circupistances, we
are net prepared te express an opinion.
But hew they can be tortured into a con
tempt of court, or "misbehavior in eiliee"
by an attorney when they were used out
side the court and net in connection with
any judicial proceeding then before the
court, passes our comprehension.
i:ssnylng a Had ICele.
Lewi-town Democrat and Sentinel.
The editors of the Intelligence!:, being
also members of the bar practicing in the
court ever which Patterson, unfortunately
for the ends of justice, presides, Iiavinir
criticised some of the tortuous proceedings
he sanctioned, has entered a rule in his
own court upon them, returnable te-morrow,
te show cause why they should nei
be disbarred for contempt of court, be
cause of such editorial animadversions. Is
it any wonder with such illustrations of
judicial distemper the old-time reverence
for the bench is rapidly disappearing '.' The
utter incempetency of Patterson for a seat
upon it could net be made mere apparent
than by this puny attempt te abridge the
legitimate freedom of the press.
It Will Xet " Oive Up tlie Cm" Until the
Cure is JCeuievetl.
Xew Helland Clarien.
The all-absorbing topic among newspa
per readers of this county, at present, is
the pitched battle between Judge Patter
son and the editors of the Lancaster Intel
ligencer. The entire public press of this
and and ether states denounce proceedings
of Judge Patterson as outrageous ; if net
in se many words, they de se in substance.
It is of little interest te us which party
have the law and precedents en their side
in this case, but it is of vital moment te us,
as well as every citizen of this county,
what this constant bickering and " mud
flinging" at our court of justice by cer
tain dailies means.
Is justice prostituted for political gain ?
Or arc these editors giving vent te their
vituperations and denunciations through
the columns of their respective papers
merely te avenge some real or imaginary
wrong received at the hands of the court?
We cannot persuade ourselves te believe
it is the latter, yet if it is the former, can
it be possible that the new daily of Lan
caster which, se assiduously peulticed this
sere en the body court-politic some time
age would abandon the case just as it
was coming te a head? We entertain grave
fears in that direction. The Xew Era
prides itself in stating that it is net. their
funeral. If it is net, then their obsequies
were being conducted when Hay Brown
and Frank Eshleman officiated and
the last words in their death threes were
"Let the band play," and Revs. Brown
and Eshleman granted their request, for
the band did play.
Indeed, the dissatisfaction of the Xew
Era as te the adjustment of their case
crops out repeatedly in the columns of
that paper, which leads us te believe that
they are net fully convinced that the facts,
as they stated them, were net correct. If
se their dereliction of duty as pertains te
modern journalism is without a shadow of
excuse, and instead of sitting idly by
and scaring their conscience with the het
iron of "it's none of our funeral," they
should endeavor te ascertain who these
men are who prostitute the courts of jus
tice for this is the veritable Mike Snyder
case of Xew Era fame expose them, and
have them punished. But when the call is
made for "music by the band ' it should
play the enlivening strains of victory in
stead of defeat.
Provincial journalism dees net have tiie
advantages aeceided te metropolitan
journals and the press of inland cities, but
11 these Lancaster dailies continue making
these scathing accusations about our courts
and make no clferts te fully investigate
the cases when an opportunity presents
itself, the rural pi ess of this county will be
compelled te demand an investigation or
knew the reason why. If our court is a
political machine or an institution of de
bauchery it is high time that steps wprc
taken te purify it. The Xew Era had the
opportunity once te ascertain whether this
Snyder case was a prostitution of justice
but it signally failed. It will new, no
doubt, presunt itself te the Intelligence!:,
aim we wait with some degree 01 auxiety
te see what the result will be. The rule
against the editors of the Intelligence!:
was made returnable en Fiiday of this
week and in consequence the band has
played its first tune bei'010 this paper will
have reached its readers. We de hope
that if the IXTELi.iGEXCEKassumes the role
of physicians te the court, in order te heal
this festering boil, that it will net give up
the case until the core is removed, other
wise it will never be soundly or perfectly
healed.
It is with a feeling of shame that we
record the fact that our court, throughout
this section, is but a by-word and re
proach. And why : because the journals
in question periodically denounce it as
such, and the people take up the cry. The
majesty of the law considers a man inno
cent until preven guiltv. AVe have no
right te accept the opinion of several edi
tors as te its debauched condition, espec
ially when they have the chance te in ake
geed their assertions and fail ; and we can
certainly net laud a progressive (:') jour
nal that teaches its readers te direspect
their highest tribunal, when the proof of
their accusations is net forthcoming,
The province of a public journal is te
mould as well as te reflect public opinion,
but inculcating such principles has a ten
dency te evil and only evil. In the course
of a few months we expect te see these
accusations proven or complete silence en
the part of the Lancaster dailies.
An Editors, Xet Lawyers.
Reliefeiite Democrat.
The recent action of Judge Patterson, of
Lancaster county, in citing Messrs. Stein
man and Ilensel, of the Lancaster Intelli
gencer, te show cause why their names
should net be stricken from the list of at
torneys for an alleged contempt of court,
meets with universal rebuke. Thesegcntle
man have net offended the court as law
yers, but as editors. Besides beinir
members el the Lancaster bar, they
are the editors of an able and in
fluential newspaper, and it seems ab
surd that a judge of the court should have
power te held them responsible
as attorneys for opinions expressed te the
public in their vocation of journalists. As
the editors of a newspaper they should be
independent of the courts. If they have
libelled Judge Patterson he has his remedy
against them as any one el.-e would have
and they should be held responsible as
ether editors would be, but for a judge te
assume arbitrary authority ever them and
mete out punishment according te his will
is such a stretch of power as cannot be tol
erated under a free government. Se far
as we have seen, the press of the state is
unanimous in condemnation of Judge Pat
terson, and it is te be hejied the editors
will bravely stand by their rights.
