Three Jadges Yesterday.
CASE" IS AS INTERESTING ONE
Mr. Smith Wrote Two Letters to Jadfe
Gonatar Re fleet inf oji Ula Jadielal
Integrity-Mar Beault in
Attorney Cornelius 8m!th was called
upon yesterday to show why he should
not be disbarred from me couris m
Lackawanna county, for writing- two
letters to Judge P. V. Ounster reflect
ing; upon his fairness, veracity and In
tegrity. The second letter was dropped
in the mail box a the door of Judge
flunster's chambers In the court house
on March 13 last. It had reference to
the case of Ira H. Burns against Mr.
Smith. The rule to strike off the ap
peal had been pending and Mr. Smith
accused Judge Uunster In the letter of
having handed down an oulnion and
then withdrawing It at the Instance of
Myron Kasson and Mr. Hums, and of
subsequently tin nine the case over to
Judge Kdwurds for consideration.
Judge Uunster sent for Mr. Smith
the day after he got the letter and
asked If he wrote It. Smith acknowl
edged doing so, but said he wrote the
letter on Information furnished to him
by a resectable member of the bar.
Judge Ounster allowed hltn until the
following Monday to substantiate the
charges, and Mr. Smith asked for more
time. His request was granted and a
week was given him. At the end of
that time he came before the court with
his answer and with the information
that Attorney U. P. Wedeman was the
person who told him of the facts al
leged In the letter.
The defense appeared so weak to the
court that a ' ruls' was entered upon
Smith to shew cause why he should not
be disbarred. The time for arguing the
rule was set down for the opening day
of argument court, and Attorneys S. H.
Price. K. C. Newcomb and City Solici
tor J. H. Torrey were appointed by the
court to prosecute the rule.
NOT HEARD MONDAY.
The case was not heard Monday be
cause Attorney A. H. McCollum, of
Montrose, who was engaged by the de
fense, was III and could not be present.
When it was called yesterday morning
Mr. Smith informed the court that Mr.
McCollum was still sick. The three
Judges were on the bench and they had
a short consultation, which resulted In
their refusing; to wait any longer and
ordering the case to proceed.
Court Stenographer . D. Coston
took the record of the proceed
Ings. Mr. Smith was assisted by
his brother-in-law. Attorney James
Million; the three attorneys who
had been appointed by the court to
prosecute the rule took their places.
The bar enclosure was tilled With at
torncys and the auditorium had a large
.audience. The evidence was all taken
find on Saturday morning arguments
will be made.
City Solicitor Torrey opened the case
by regretting: that the steps taken
were necessary. It was a disagreeable
duty, but one that had to be performed
for the reputation of the profession.
It involved the integrity of the bar, the
honor of the court and the safety of
the community because If It was com
petent for those who are brought Into
closest contact with the court to reflect
upon the Integrity of the judges, their
capacity and their Impartiality to ad
minister Justice, there is no safety in
the community. If attorneys cannot
be respectful to the court it cannot be
expected that litigants can be so, and
It has frequently occurred that the ex
cesses of the bar In their criticisms and
reflections upon the court have led to
personal violence and resistance to the
decrees of the court, and therefore it Is
of the highest Importance to the court
to preserve its own dignity. It Is not
that the court is careful about personal
dignity or personal reeling, but to pre
serve the dlglnlty of the court so that
its decrees may be respected, and It is
the duty of the bar at all times to keep
down such exhibitions of criticisms and
reflection upon the court aa has been
exhibited on the part of Mr. Smith In
Mr. Torrey was Interrupted in his
opening by Mr. Mahon, who submitted
the following apology to- the court:
MR. SMITH'S APOLOOY.
"Cornelius Smith respectfully says
that in writing the letters in question
to his honor, P. W. (Sunster. he did not
have the remotest intention of reflect
Ins upon the judge's honesty or In
tegrity or to Interfere In any way with
the performance of his Judicial func
tions and If there Is anything contained
in these letters that is capable of being
construed otherwise the respondent is
sorry for it and does hereby apologize
to the Honorable t. W. Ounster and
the court for the same."
Mr. Mahon, after reading the apology,
tiled an application to have the case
removed to some other court for a num
ber of reasons which were set forth.
The application is refused," respond
ed Judge Archbald.
Mr. Smith then moved to have the
rule vacated out of court for the rea
son that the court under the constitu
tion and . s of the commonwealth has
no Jutisdu ilon in this form of proced
ure; that there are no facts sufficient
to constitute a cause of action because
it is not alleged that the respondent
has been convicted or that he is guilty
of an Infamous crime; it is not alleged
that he did any tict of fraud or corrup
tion; nor Is it alleged that he is a per
son of general bad character, such as
shows him to be unfitted and unsafe
to be instructed with the poweis of liis
Judge Archliald answered Mr. Smith J
that his motion will be filed and will
be considered when the case is fully
heard along with whatever may be de
veloped In the course of the case, Por
the present the court overruled the mo
tion. Mr Smith then answered:
"I would like to state on the record
that. I would prefer now to argue the
motion to vacate the rule and would
request the court to permit me to do
so, unless the court refuses me that
. PRIVILEGE DENIED.
Judge Archbald denied him the priv
ilege, and at this stage of the proceed
ings Mr. Price addressed the court and
said Mr. Smith admitted writing and
transmitting to Judge Uunster certain
letters and he offered them In evidence.
Mr. Price also offered In evidence a
statement or declaration died in the
case or John O. Jennings vs. the Le
high Valley Railroad company, R. W.
Archbald, E. N. Wlllard and others.
The 'declaration was signed by Mr.
Smith as attorney and was offered for
the purpose of showing an intention to
traduce and libel the members of the
court under the shield 'of his privilege
as an attorney. . . , i .
Mr. Smith objected" to offering the
declaration in evidence, and he was
overruled by the court. Mr. Price then
read the following extract to show Mr.
Smith's animus: ,
"That the plaintiff, Jolin O. Jennings,
was lawfully and justly entitled to re
cover the damages aforesaid, but the
defendant, well knowing the premises
and contriving and intending to injure
the plaintiff, conspired, combined and
confederated together -to hinder delay
ana uereat tne actions aforesaid fabri
cated and procured false tnd fraudu
lent testimony against the plaintiff and
procured the verdict in one of these ac
tions to be unlawfully set aside,, and
also repeatedly packed the jury in said
actions against the plaintiff and In fa.
vor of the .defendant' railroad com
pany." ; :-.
Here the taking of testimony bgan.
W. J. Kann was sworn and examined
by Mr. Torrey. It was at his printing
establishment that at the instance of
Mr. Smith a paper book was printed,
which was a petition to the Supreme
court for a mandamus upon R. W.
Archbald to show cause why he should
not be removed from the bench. Mr.
Kann Identified a copy of the book and
It was offered in evidence. Mr. Smith
objected, but was overruled. The wit
ness said that Mr. Smith ordered about
ttfty copies of the book printed.
COUNTY OFFICIALS CHARGED.
Mr. Torrey then read several extracts
from the book In which the officers of
the court of thla county are charged
with almost every offense known to tl
law to defeat John O. Jennings In his
suit against the Lehigh Valley Kail-
An Interesting phase was assumed at
this point. Mr. Price offered In evi
dence a paper book filed of record In the
Supreme court by Mr. Smith in the ca3e
of Hoban vs. Walsh In Wayne county.
Mr. smith paid his respects to Judge
Mccoiium, then on the Wayne county
bench, now a member of the state su
Next was offered In evidence all the
papers in the case of 1. H. Burns
against Mr. Smith. This ended the
prosecution side of the case and the
evidence was closed. Mr. Smith made a
motion to have the court strike out all
the testimony from the record which
was not material and had bearing upon
the charges made In the record. Judge
Archbald overruled the motion on the
ground that it was too vague and In
definite In the first place, and In the
next place according to the court's Idea
no evidence was admitted except that
which was material.
Attorney L. P. Wedeman was called
by Mr. Smith as the first witness for
the defense. He swore substantially
the statement that Mr. Smith asked
him to watch the time when the rules
In the case of Ira H. Hums against Mr.
Smith would be handed down, and In
accordance with this order from Mr.
Smith the witness kept his ears open.
He wns in court one morning and
heard Judge Gunster hand down a tile
in one of the Burns-Smith rules, it
was handed to Myron Kasson. In giv
ing it from him Judge Gunster said he
discharged the rule because the costs
were iiald In cash before the twenty
days for taking an appeal had expired.
Judge Cunster went off the bench and
out of the court room toward his cham
ber. Mr. Kasson put the opinion In his
Mr. Wedeman was turned over for
cross-examination. Mr. Newcomb asked
him If he wanted to be understood as
saying that he saw Judge Uunster hand
down an opinion In the case of Burns
against Smith, notwithstanding that
Judge Gunster has stated that he did
not hand such an opinion down. Mr.
Wedeman said he had great respect
for the court, but he was sotry to say
that, notwithstanding Judge Gunster's
disclaimer, vet that he believed It was
the Burns-Smith case that was dis
posed of that day. Mr. Wedeman Bald
he believed the court may have Inad
vertently called some other case the
Burns-Smith case, but ho was sure
there was an announcement made that
such an opinion had been handed down.
But not that day In Mr. Wedemun's
presence did Judge Gunster at the in
stance of Mr. Kasson and Mr. Burns
take the opinion bock. He never told
Mr. Smith anything of tho kind. He
simply told him that Judge Gunster
handed clown an opinion discharging
the rule asking to strike off the appeal
in the case of Burns against Smith.
Mr. Wedeman was asked by Judge
Edwards whether or not he knew that
the name day that he believes the
Burns-Smith case was disposed of there
wus an oulnion handed down In the
case of the Dime Bank against Mr.
Smith. The witness admitted he heard
such a case disposed of, but he still
Insisted that It was a different case to
the one be heard. He made no Investi
gation to find out whether he was right
or wrong; he Inquired If there was any
record kept like a day book and was
told there was none such. Judge Ed
"You don't know now whether you
got mixed up In the two cases, whether
it was the case of the Dime bank
against Smith or the case you refer to?"
"Knowing of my fallibility I do not
know it; I only have my understanding
in the matter."
Mr. Newcomb asked him why he did
not take the trouble to verify himself
at the time. He said he hud good rea
son for not trying to verify himself,
and he might sacrifice himself here now,
but he did not care to slaughter any
body else and If he went down he would
go down alone.
MR. WEDEMAN PERSISTED.
Mr. Wedeman was asked if he per
sisted in saying that It was the Burns
Smith case wns disposed of by Judge
Uunster, and he said he unfortunately
had to. The rftmn hour arrived and
Mr. Wedeman-left the stand.
After dinner Mr. Smith offered the
opinion of Judge Edwards in evidence
in the Burns-Smith case. Judge Gun
ster asked his purpose In doing this,
and his reply was that he wanted to
show, as he had been Informed the case
was disposed of before, that he. was
Justified in believing the case was de
cided, but he assured Judge uunster
he meant nothing disrespectful, The
opinion had already been in evidence
with the other tiles.
Mr. Smith then went upon the stand
and It was plainly evident that he was
undergoing Bevere humiliation.
He said that Mr. Wedeman Informed
him Judge Gunster had handed down
an order discharging the rule to strike
off the appeal In the case In which I. H.
Burns wus plaintiff and himself de
fendant. That meant that Judge Gun
ster had decided that Mr. Smith could
appeal to court and have the libel suit
tried before a Jury and the award of
Sin.000 for Mr. Burns by the arbitrators
Mr. Wedeman Informed him that
Judge Uunster took the opinion back
at the instance of Mr. Kasson and Mr.
Burns, who were then In court. On
the strength of this he went to Judge
Gunster and asked him if the case had
been disposed of. The judge pointed to
the tiles lying on the window sill of
his room and told him the case would
be passed upon by Judge Edwards the
following week or some time later.
Judge Gunster could say nothing about
the case then as Judge Edwards was
holding court that week In Wllkes
Barre. HE DECIDED TO WRITE.
He decided to write the letter to
Judge Gunster; he meant no disrespect
nor Insinuated no Injustice, all he was
after was Information, facts. Mr.
Mahon concluded his questioning and
Mr. Newcomb began the cross-examination.
He Inquired from the witness, if
the purpose of the letter was to get a
direct positive denial from Judge
Gunster that he had not taken back the
case after once deciding it, why had
he not put the question squarely to
Judge Gunster in his room .when he
called upon him instead of voicing his
sentiments In a letter? Mr. Smith an
swered that he didn't ask the Judge that
question simply because he didn't, that
He had been to Judge Gunster's Iwuse
once while the case was In the hands of
the court to request him not to dis
pose of It until he came back from a
visit to the Supreme' court at Philadel
phia. Judge Gunster promised him not
to dispose of It for the reason that
Judge Edwards would take charge of
Mr. Newcomb asked him what busi
ness brought him then to the Supreme
court. The answer was that a Sullivan
case from Susquehanna county was
coming up for argument. Mr. New
comb asked him If he had not that
same time made an application before
the Supreme court for a writ of man
damus to be directed to Judge Archbald
to show cause why he should not be
removed from the bench of this county.
Mr. Smith rf used to at.'swer. The
question was put to him again, and
again lis refused. The court upheld
him In his refusal, rullnr that It had
no materiality to the charge upon
which he was being Investigated. Mr.
Newcomb argued that It showed Mr.
CLOSE OF THE DEFENSE.
This was the end of the defense's
side of the case. Mr. Kasson was
sworn to give rebuttal testimony. He
testified that Judge Gunster did not,
as alleged by Mr. Wedeman, hand down
an opinion in the Burns-Smith case.
Judge Gunster did hand down an opin
ion in the appeal of Hopkins & Roberts
versus Arthur Frothlngham, a case in
volving a similar principle, and he dis
charged the rule to strike off the ao
peal, saying that the costs were paid
In cash within the twenty days, but
Mr. Kasson informed Judge Gunster
that the record showed the costs were
not paid within the twenty days, and
on that the opinion was taken back
and corrected so that the appeal was
Mr. Smith took Mr. Kasson In hand
for cross-examination and there was a
lively tilt between them. Mr. Smith
asked if this Hopkins & Roberts case
versus Frothlngham wan't merely a fic
titious case got up aa an excuse to cover
Judge Gunster's act In the Burns-Smith
case; if it was not invented purposely
so that they could have it to say that
this was the case Wedeman heard
when he thought he heard the Burns
Smith case dlsriosed of? Mr. Kasson
faced the auburn haired attorney fierce
ly and In a stern voice resented the
Insinuation with an emphatic negation.
Judge Archbald put a damper on the
further examination on this point by
ordering Mr. Smith to keep within
Attorney I. H. Burns was sworn and
Judge Gunster asked him if he knew
of anything about his handing down
an opinion in the case of the witness
against Mr. Smith and afterward tak
ing It back. The answer was in the
negative. Then Judge Gunster said:
"Did any such thing occur?" Mr. Burns
answered, "No. sir."
The. arguments will be made before
the three judges Satin-day morning.
