RIGHTS OF LAWYERS AND EDITORS.
THE NEWSPAPERS SPEAKING OUT.
Tlie Sixth Installment of their Opinions.
As stated befere the wide notice given
te Judge Patterson's disbarment of the
editors of the Intelligencer, and the
voluminous comments thereon by the
newspapers of the state, render it impos
sible for us te republish these journalistic
opinions in full. The following extracts,
however, will convey some idea of the ex
tent and character of the comments of the
case. Eds. Intelligencer.
Concerns Lawyers Mere than Editors.
Pittsburgh Pest, Dem.
The question concerns lawyers mere
than it does editors ; but for all that, the
action seems arbitrary and harsh, and will
hardly stand final review in the higher
Judge, Jury and Executioner.
Wilmli.gteu (Del.) Every Evening, Dem.
It is a gross attempt te interfere with
the freedom of the press, aed any news
paper which supports the judge in his ar
bitrary and spiteful action deserves what
ever in course of time may come te itself
from the establishment of such a precedent.
If the Intelligencer slandered Judge
Patterson he had his right of action, like
any ether citizen, but te thus attempt te
act as judge, jury and executioner in a
case in which he is himself practically a
party is disgraceful.
In the Time te Come.
Philadelphia Times, 1ml.
When the supreme court shall have re
viewed the judicial outrage perpetrated by
Judge Patterson the respondents can de no
less than arraign Judge Patterson for mis
behavior in effice, unless he shall take the
initiative bv an action for libel against
.ph.. n-nm;nnn- n.iifri-u ivIia
have stamped him with infamy.
Judges and Journalists.
Philadelphia Evening Telegraph, Rep.
It won't de te be tee hard en Judge
Patterson, of Lancaster, for his action en
Satuulay in disbarring a ceuple of lawyers,
who also happen te be newspaper editors,
for certain criticisms en his judicial action
in a political case, for just se long as the
people of Pennsylvania persist in main
taining an elective judiciary the judges
being elected net te sit for life or geed be
havior, but for ten-year terms just se long
must they expect their judges te be pro
fessional politicians, and te conduct them
selves in political cases after the fashion
of the average professional politicians.
There is only one way te make the bench
even moderately independent in the matter
of nelitical partisanship, and that is te give
the judges life terms. It would be
better te have an appointed rather than an
elective judiciary ; but this, after all, is a
secondary matter the main thing is that
when a citizen learned in the law is once
made a judge he shall be in a position te de
his duty fearlessly and honestly without
regard te possible consequences te him
self ; and such a position as this he can
only be put in by making him irremovable
except for cause under impeachment pro
ceedings. Just se long as the judges are
oblige! te leek forward te a future election
day ler a continuance in effice, just se long
will they be under a constant temptation te
violate justice and judicial propriety in
certain classes of cases. It is very true
as ceitain recant very bitter experiences
have demonstrated that judges who are
appointed, and for life terms, arc prone te
be extreme partisans, but obviously, the
dangers of a partisan bench is very much
under the one condition than they are un
der the ether.
Judge Patterson is net by any manner
of means the only judge who has held te
the theory that the sayings and ilemgs el
the judiciary ought te be beyond criticism
in the public. The theory, in fact, is a
very favorite one with our judges ; just as
it would be a very convenient one, if it
could be made te work, for some of the
least reputable of them. Exactly hew it
is, however, that the gentlemen et the
bench have figured it out in their own
minds that there is geed reason why a
judge should be entitled te an exception
from criticism that is net accorded,
let us say te a congressman, has never
been understood by judicial-minded lay
men. It has always seemed te us
that the judges, of all public officers, arc
the" very ones who ought te be the most
igilantly watched and the most keenly
criticized. Their powers are enormous,
and a prostitution of these powers under any
circumstances must workenermous injury,
and the best public interests no mere de
mandthat the public press shall keep
silent with regard te judicial wrong-doing
than that it should emit te speak in plain
and positive language with regard te the
wronjr-deinj; of ether officers. If the
judges are pure and capable, the keenest
criticisms cannot pesiuly Hurt tnem, or
bring the machinery of the administration
of justice into discredit if they impure
and incapable, every decent citizen in the
community, has a particular interest
in having their unfitness demon
strated in the plainest manner. It
is absurd, as Judge Patterson
holds, te contend that the only proper
method of proceeding against an unjust
judge is by impeachment proceedings.
The class of cases in which the conduct of
the judiciary is most likely te become in
volved are political, and the impeach
ment and conviction of a Pennsyl
vania judge by a crowd of fellow profes
sional politicians in the Heuse and Senate,
would go far te make the public be
lieve that doomsday was near. Ne
body knows this better than Judge
Patterson, of Lancaster, and his
challenge te Messrs. Steinman and
Iicnsel te commence impeachment pro
ceedings is, therefore, simply a gratuitous
piece of insolence. As for the two dis
barred editors, it is much te be hoped that
they will take measures te have it definite
ly determined whether or no a judge can
disbar an attorney for criticisms en his ju
dicial sayings and doings when the at
torney has had no official connection with
the proceedings before the court, and
where the criticisms are made out of the
court room and after the conclusion of
the case. It would at least be entertain
ing te find out just hew far some of Judge
Patterson's judicial brethren are willing te
go in the way of sustaining him in this
Walked lute a Trap Did AYe ?
West Chester Village Recerd, Rep.
Lawyers, when they become editors,
should be extremely careful what kind of
articles they write concerning the judges
before whom they practice. The legal
profession as well as the judiciary them
selves have always been extremely jealous
in guarding the prerogatives of the courts,
including that very arbitrary, and, in the
hands of an unjust judge, dangerous
power of punishment for "contempt."
This power while it seems needful in order
te give the courts sufficient strength te
command respect, is none the less capable
of abuse, but lawyers who are most nearly
connected with it, and whose custom it tee
often is te take an exaggerated view of
the importance of their profession in com
parisen with the rights and privileges of
common people, should be the most care
ful te avoid the penalties of judicial con
demnation, and the last te complain if
they incur them. As te the merits of the
question at issue it is difficult te te judge at
this distance ; whether the article which
Messrs. Steinuian and Henscl published
was justly construed as a contempt, or net,
we are unable te say. But these gentle
men knew, of course, when they wrote it,
that as attorneys in his court, his control
ever them was practically absolute, in re
gard te what he might cheese te consider
a "contempt." They therefore walked
into the trap with their-eyes open.
Press, Lawyers and Courts.
Philadelphia Evening Xews. Rep.
The action of Judge Patterson, striking
the names of two attorneys from the roll
for criticisms published in the paper of
which they were editors, while involving
him in public contempt, will de them no
ultimate harm. It was en his part an arbi
trary, and, we think, an illegal use of
power. As such it will, of course, be
remedied. But the outrage is of mere im
mediate interest te lawyers than te the
press. The indignity put upon these gen
tlemen was in their capacity as lawyers,
but because of their doings as editors.
It does net appear that they transcended
either their rights or duties as editors
in criticizing ceitain doings of the
court after its decisions in a certain case
had been rendered. Among reputable
journals the rule is te abstain from criti
cism pending the trial of a case, thus leav
ing it te be decided en its merits under the
evidence ; but once it is decided all that
pertains te it is regarded as legitimately
open te criticism. The editors of the Lan
caster Intelligencer observed this rule
and yet were punished for what they said.
But they were punished as lawyers, and
the outrage is mere distinctly against that
profession than that of the press. It will
net leek well if the Lancaster bar does net
make common cause with its persecuted
membcrs, and unite te teach Judge Patter-
soil it lessen
While the press as such is net assailed,
it is well known that the spirit of our laws
is against the freedom of the press. When
the new constitution was under discussion
in the constitutional convention, the effort
was made te modify the severity of the libel
laws. It was only partially successful.
And while the reputable press appreciates
the propriety of laws that will held in
check such papers as might be dis
posed te be malicious and scandalous,
yet it is undeniable that our libel laws arc
severe. But, as a rule, they have been
judiciously administered. "Where malice
is net shown, and the criticisms of a paper
were evidently in the interest of public
morality, it has been found exceedingly
difficult te secure conviction for alleged
libel. Thus as a rule the press has had
little cause, in this state, despite our se
vere laws, te cemplaim of the courts. The
case under mention, we repeat, hardy be
longs te the press. "While Judge Patter Patter
seu punished the editors of the Inteli-
gescer ler what tliey said in tncir journal
the blew against them was as lawyers.
Ne doubt he demeaned himself; but if the
bar of Lancaster county have net the
sense of self-respect te act in behalf of
their breathrcn, we de net sec that the
press is se terribly outraged.
A Day That Is Passed,
Lcwistewn Democrat and Sentinel, Dem.
The day has passed when cither the
beifrCh or the clergy arc exempt from the
criticism of the press. "When the one
abuses his trust te tyrannize, or the ether
his highest calling te make political mer
chandise of his occasion, neither can hope
te escape criticism, or the censure of odium
their acts entail. Se long as we are
charged with the responsibility of ed
iting a newspaper we shall call things by
their light names, even though we may
alienate a friend. The responsibility of
our calling is as great as theirs, and wc
will net shrink from it. "We have but the
judgment a gracious providence has vouch
safed us, and that cannot be silenced by
any kind of clamor. As we see our duty
we shall discharge it, and leave cense
quences te take care of themselves.
lly a Large Majority.
Lancaster Correspondence Columbia llerald.
The all-absorbing topic of conversation
for the last few days has been the action
of Judge Patterson in disbarring Messrs.
Steiumen & Iicnsel. By virtue of our
position wc are mere or less thrown in con
tact with all classes and shades of society
and in such associations wc have heard
expressed en all sides nothing but universal
contempt for the judgment of this "second
Daniel." The passing of sentence, almost
upon the heels of the adjournment of the
supreme court, is also severely commented
upon inasmuch as the gentlemen dis
barred will of necessity be compelled te
rest, under what this "righteous judge"
would lain have this community believe
is a disgrace, until that body again con
venes in May. Otherwise, wc are assured
by lawyers high in authority, that the
pigeon-holed " one mere opinion " would
have net met the fate which all but the
"best workers" predicted for it. Yeu and
your readers have no doubt been se sur
feited with "Jlicnacl Snyder," "A.tter
math," "Crew Eating" and disbarment
that wc will forbear entering into the de
tails of this dirty work and its finale.
With these few comments en what we have
heard from the disinterested, as noted
above, we drop the curtain and, with the
rest will anxiously await the last act in
May next, which will ring up en the rein
statement of the lawyer-editors and an
other victory for the freedom of the press.
Alteena Tribune, Rep.
The press very generally condemn the
action of Judge Patterson, of the Lancas
ter common pleas court, in debarring the
editors of the Lancaster Intelligencer
for certain editorial criticisms of a suit
tried in his court. The matter will be car
ried te the supreme court, and it is scarce
ly possible that that tribunal will sustain
the arbitrary act of Judge Patterson.
Philadelphia Times, Ind.
There is a wonderful unanimity en the
part of the newspapers el all shades of po
litical opinion in condemning the action of
Jndge Patterson of Lancaster, in disbarring
the editors of the Intelligencer.
One of that Kind.
Wilkcsbarrc Recerd of the Times, Rep.
Patterson appears te be one of that kind
of judges whose actions will sometimes fail
te bear the test of criticism, and he there
upon " rights " himself in such questiona
ble ways as above indicated.
The Paper Still Banning.
Easten Argus, Dem.
Notwithstanding Judge Patterson has
disbarred the editors of the Lancaster In
telligencer from practicing in his court
these , perverse chaps continue te issue
their paper. The judge meant te squelch
them, but didn't.
