LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER, SATURDAY, APRIL 3. 1880.
sett exemption from all responsibility
whatever. In that their felly was equalled
only by their criminality.
They claim that exemption in their an
swers set forth, because the publication
made was made by them solely in the ca
y pacity of editors and publishers of a news
paper, and made net in the presence of the
court, and therefore in no manuer involves
their professional oath as attorneys.
Their answer also sets forth that they
wiete and published th article while act
ing in geed faith, and for the public geed,
etc. In ether words, they designed te say
that they wrote and published in this in
stance from the enthusiasm of virtue and
net from motives of ambition, praise or
Such a sworn statement as te the legal
and moral effects of the oath governing
members of the bar is certainly remark
able. We consider integrity, and especial
ly integrity te the obligations of his offi
cial oath, as well as learning, is most es
sential te the character of an attorney.
An attorney-at-law of the largest experi
ence, the loftiest talents and most unex
ceptionable character, when he seeks a
new forum te conduct a trial, is obligated
te take the prescribed eatli for attorneys
before he is permitted te be heard in that
ceuit in behalf of his client.
This requiied oath, or one similar in
spirit is as ancient as the common law it
self, and te punish for an open violation of
that obligation has always been held as in
cidental te a grant of judicial power.
Hence, can it be seriously urged that that
answer can lie accepted te go in excuse of
this misbehavior in ellicc by these re
spondent!? That because an atterny-at-'
law is at the same time an editor of a
public paper, that the latter calling and
engaging in the duties of it emancipates
iiim from all the obligations his oath as an
attorney implies '.' That while within the
four walls of the court chamber that obli
gation is binding.but the moment he steps
without its wall the obligation is cancelled
the legal and nier.il obligation no longer
The utterance itself of the preposition
shows its wickedness and its felly. We
can only entertain feelings of deprecation
and sadness for any one, much mere for an
attorney-at-law, who can utter such a son sen
timent. The assumed calling of editors is volun
tary en their pait, but does it sink the
oiliee and obligations of attorneys, who
have never asked te be stricken from the
roll of attorneys, but who are in daily
practice before the court ? We think net
Of com se, an editor or publisher net an
officer of the court could net violate this
official oath would net by reason of any
publication whatsoever be responsible te
the court in the proceeding for contempt,
but only te the law in an action or prose
cution in the courts.
That distinguished jurist, C. J. Gibsen,
in the Austin case. 5 Kawlc, 202, says :
" An attorney-at-Uw is an officer of the
ceuit ; and individuals of the class may,
and sometimes de, forfeit their profession
al franchise by abusing it ; and a power te
exact the forfeiture must lie ledged some -
t hcrc,uud such a power is indispensable te
protect the court, the administration of
justice and themselves,'
These respondents are attorneys of this
ceuit, and as such had solemnly taken the
obligation "that they would behave them
selves in their office of attorney within the
ceuit act'eiding te the best of their learn
ing and ability, and with all geed fidelity as
well te' the teuit as te the client." They
are also required te be persons of geed
moral character. And Justice. Rogers
says in Hie McLaughlin case, 5 W. fc S.,
'21:1 : ' And if he (the attorney) violates
tins obligation, he is liable te suspension,
removal fiem office, or te such ether pen
alties as have hitherto been allowed in
such cases by the laws of the common
wealth." If then, it is only with the official con
duct of these respondents that the court
can in these proceedings propel ly take cog ceg cog
uizauce of, is it net imperative te notice
the false cede of morals implied, in their
answers respecting the obligatory charac
ter of their official oath, as well as the
eveit act. complained of?
We have already remarked en the plea
of their entire release from obligation as
attorneys and officers of this court. The
obliquity of the moral sense thereby indi
cated, if net sufficient in itself, would cer
tainly make up a large element of charac
ter te constitute official misconduct and
unlitnes for the office of attorney.
The power of the court te punish for offi
cial misconduct, as above shown, is well
established by authority. What, we will
ask, is the character of the publication ?
We have shown its pernicious tendency,
which is net disputed by the answers tiled.
The respondents nowhere by their answers
allege its truthfulness. They nowhere
deny its tendency te abuse public credulity
ami te indict deep injury upon the integ
rity of the court and its moral influence.
What ie the logical inference te be drawn
from the respondents' sworn answers ? Is
it ether than that they are privileged te
make any publication concerning the court,
and concerning proceedings in the court,
however false, even te assail its integrity,
and te excite popular passion concerning
cases determined therein, whether just or
And in the absence of any disclaimer
in their answers of any intention te embar
rass the adinininistratien of justice, is it
net fair te assume that the intention of re
spondents was te impair the court's official
integrity and influence? The language of
the article, taken with the answers, under
oath, will admit of no ether interpretation
no ether than the intention te charge the
court with partisan action in the cases re
ferred te. and, of course, with a want of
official integrity. There is no disavowal of
it natural meaning or of a bad intent, and
every man must be presumed te intend the
natural and necessary consequences of his
- own deliberate acts ; and when, as in this
instance, an opportunity was offered te
respondents te make a disavowal either as
te the motive that inllucnced them in the
publication, and as te its meaning, and
thej' declined te de cither, it constitutes a
deliberate re-affirmation of the original ar
ticle, with all its inherent consequences
and meaning. The motive, therefore, was
an impure one, ana ine puoncauen u ua
grant breach of official fidelity te the court.
The respondents seek another excuse, by
claiming te have made the publication
for the "public geed." If there were
wiengs, real or imaginary, permitted in
the trials referred te, it is remarkable that
they were net seen or known te ethers
than the respondents. If wrongs existed,
of which-wc arc unconscious, the law has
wisely provided a mode of redress, well
known te every lawyer, and no one, seek
ing or claiming te be a public benefactor,
would for a moment think of employing
any ether. The members of this and all
the courts in the commonwealth
are removable, if found unworthy,
by the Legislature a mode pro
vided, which is open te every member
of the bar, and te all ether citizens. Their
right te invoke such instrumentality as is
prescribed by the constitution and .laws
could net be questioned or impeded in
this nor any ether court, and would net
effect injuriously the public welfare.
And we submit te employ any ether mode
and especially te excite the popular preju
dice and impair public confidence in the
administration of public justice by pub
lishing of and concerning the court the
grave charge that it was capable of
" prostituting the machinery of justice te
serve the exigeucies of a political party,"
. could net by any intelligent lawyer of
pure character be considered as prometive
of the public geed.
It must be admitted that an everwhclm--g
necessity only, which has net been at
"-inptcd te have been shown te exist here,
would justify an attorney-at-law in a
course te degrade and scandalize, if net
overawe and influence the court in its ad
ministrations, by publishing te the world
an attack impeaching the official integrity
of the court of which he is an officer, fauch
a proceeding under any ether 'circum
stances, would show him te be greatly
wanting in professional fidelity, and te be
unsafe and unfit te be intrusted with the
privileges and powers of his profession.
Frem malicious and unjust attacks by
the public press, calculated te impair pub
lic confidence in its intigrity and the
honest administration of public justice, the
court is protected, net for the sake of the
judges presiding, but for the sake of the
public and the suitors in tneir court, ine
misconduct in this instance is the act of
these respondents, as lawyers and officers
of this court, and r.et their act as ordinary
citizens, and with them as editors and
publishers we have therefore nothing te de
in this summary proceeding.
AVe have already shown, we think, that
the dual character of lawyer and editor
cannot be pleaded or admitted in justifica
tion of the transgressive act for which they
are ruled te answer. Ner is the liberty of
the prchs infringed by the supervisory and
summary proceedings exercised by the
court ever its officers. That opinion
could only spring from the deficiency of an
accurate knowledge of its true character,
or from a desire te unjustly denounce and
condemn its exercise.
The seventh section of the "Declaration
of Rights" declares that "every citizen
may licely speak, write and print en any
subject, being responsible for the abuse of
that liberty;' and the act of 183G also
gives entire security te the press and te any
citizen te publish and criticize the judges of
our courts and their conduct, and the
officers of the court, etc., without tra
ducing character or having the license of
defamation. The public press, therefore,
can be free in its widest and safest sense,
without that license, and such freedom of
the press, wc, and every right-minded man,
must believe is right, and is indispensable
te the preservation of the freedom of the
people. Se that this court could net, if it
would, and it certainly does net for a mo me mo
memcut desire te deny that essential right
either te the press or te the assemblage of
At the s.nne time it will be observed,
that the said act of the General Assembly
expressly clothes the courts of the com
menwealth with power te issue attach
ments for censempt of court for the official
misconduct of their officers. " It is pro
per te rennuk that the power of the court
te punish the official misconduct of their
officers is expressly reserved in the act of
the lGth of June, 183G," is the language of
Justice Rogers, in the case of McLaughlin
vs. the judges of the district court of
Philadelphia. 5 W. & S., 272.
Se that it is patent that neither the
constitutional prevision just quoted, nor
the act of 1S3G, gives te the public press,
or te an officer of this ceuit, the right te
make and publish articles impeaching its
official character, and thereby destroying
confidence in it and leading the community
te disregard its eflicial decrees.
That has been and is, wc are of the
opinion, the law as held by our supreme
court, and is sanctioned and enforced en
the hypothesis that it is absolutely neces
sary te the advancement or due adminis
tration of distributive justice. It is net
assumed that this proceeding could be
supppertcd, nor is it, because the article
in question was an attack upon the private
character or conduct of the judges as men,
but only because it was an attack upon the
purity of the motives of the members of
the court while acting officially as a court.
It is, by virtue of the same inherent
power, that courts can protect counsel ap
pearing in its forum, as officers of the
courts from the effects of publications
which are calculated te deter them from a
bold and manly defence of suitors, for fear
of the ("enunciation of the public press.
The publication in question was made
out of the presence of court by the.so'responc! the.se'responc! the.so'respenc!
ents. its attorneys and officers, and in terms
scandalizing and impeaching its integrity.
Are they responsible and liable te punish
ment in a summary proceeding of this
nature for constructive contempt or mis
conduct in eflice ?
This question has already been decided
by our court of highest jurisdiction. In
the Austin case, ." Rawlc 204, that distin
guished jurist, Chief Justice Gibsen, cleai
ly announces the doctrine that officers of
the court aie se liable, lie says : " It is
one thing te remove from office for unfit
ness and another te punish for contempt."
' In fact, the court may have recourse te
both together, and there is no reason,
therefore, why it should net be at liberty
te proceed ou the ground of unfitness and
waive the contempt."
" It is net doubted that any breach of
the official oath is a valid cause for pro
ceeding for the former, for the man who
deliberately violates the sanction of a law
ful oath proves himself te be unworthy of
further confidence ; society has no held
upon him. The most significant breach of
the fidelity enjoined may therefore be visit
ed with this measure." But it issuppesed
that as this fidelity is exacted by the terms
of the oath, but ' in the office of attorney'
and 'within the court' the act which may vi
olate it must be done in the face of the court.
The oath undoubtedly leeks te nothing
like allegiance te jthe person of the judge,
unless, in theso cases where his person is
se inseparable from his eflice, that an insult
te the one is an indignitv te the ether : "In
matters collateral te official duty, the
judge is en a level with the members of
the bar, as he is with his fellow citizens,
his title te distinction and respect resting
en no ether foundation than his virtues
and qualities as a man.
" IJut it is nevcrthless evident, that pro
fessional fidelity may bej violated by acts
which fall without the line of professional
functions, and which may have been per
formed out of the ale of the court.,,
And after remarking that such would be
the consequence of beating or insulting a
judge en the street for a judgment in
ceuit, or of an attempt te control the de
liberations of the bench by the apprehen
sive of violence ; or by an attempt te
overawe the bench by menace, challenge,
or the employment of an engine se power
ful asi the press, he remarks: "Te im
pair the gcueraf confidence in the purity
and efficiency of the administration of
distributive justice is a vital injury te it,
and the attorney who abuses the public
credulity with a view te that effect can
net complain, if the faculties from which
his capacity of mischief is mainly derived
be taken away from him."
Justice Rogers in the McLaughlin case,
". W. & S. 272, recognizes the ruling in
the Austin case.
In the case of Dickens, 17, P. F. Smith,
1G9, Chief Justice Agnew does likewise.
He says: "The doctrine of the Austin case
is that the power of the court maybe ex
ercised against the atterneys-at-iaw, either
for a contempt, which is an effence against
the court itself, or for unfitness, which
disqualifies the attorney from filling the of
" In the pros cut case no contempt was
committed and the expulsion rests upon the
charge of unfitness te exercise the office of
It is clear that these Pennsylvania au
thorities require that the misconduct must
relate te official misconduct of the attorney,
and net his acts as a person merely, ami
that a breach of his official oath is such
professional misconduct, and constitutes a
valid cause for removal.
If this opinion did net become tee ex
tended, we could pursue this theme by the
citation of numerous ether authorities, out
side of this state, but we will net.
We have endeavored te present the mis"
conduct of the respondents under the law,
candidly, and te view their case dispassion

obligation of this court te' respect the just
rights of the bar, in the exercise of this
summary power of the court, and te ab

same time we wish it te be distinctly under

power in the cemmrnwcalth, te which, by
the recent act of the General Assembly of
1879, they can resort and secure a review
of the proceedings of this court.
In view of all the circumstances, and the
law involved, we are unable te acquit these
two respondents of misbehavior in their
office of attorney.
And this proceeding, we need hard
