THE BIOH HAVE ALWAYS RULED
tha Poor, and by Precedent 8hould Co
tinu to Do So Judges Coma
Mostly From the Aristo
The recant conduct of the United States
Judge In the Ann Arbor ewe was not un
expected. Tboae who expect the courta
of law to Interpret the lair In fivorof
the people, rathar than In favor of the
plutocrat, are greatly mistaken. And
thla need surprise no one It has always
x been so, and arises from perfectly natural
causes. Judges must neceasanly come
from the ranks of the lawyers. Their
professional training makes them par-
tlcularly careful of technicalities, and
plutocrats hold their power mainly by
legal technicalities. It. Is always the
letter of the " law, and not the "spirit
which glreth life," on which Judicial
wrongs are based.
Besides, a Judge is always on the tide
ot "precedent," and it has al ways been the
precedent so fsr that the rich have ruled
the poor, and In the Judicial eye they will
always do so, for precedent must be fol
lowed. A lawyer once told me that he
oarer expected a Judge to decide accord
ing to the equity of the cae or Incline to
poor plaiotlff,not because the Judge waa
unfair but because ha waa a Judye.
lath last days of John Adums' ad
ninlatratlon,when the aristocratic federal-
1 pta were endeavoring to check tba rising
power of the party of the people, the 're
publicans," they found no better assist
ante than the Judges of the courts', es
pecially of the United States circuit.
The outrageous alien and sedition laws
were not enough, but some of the Judges
like old Samuel Chase of Maryland, not
only used the full Influence of tbelr posi
tion to down their opponents, but made
their charges to the Juries regular political
. harangues like that of Judge Paxson in
the Homestead Indictments for treason.
' Let me add a couple of extracts from
Bchouler's history oj the United States
concerning Chase's famous circuit In 1800;
. Tyres, on a second trial for treason
Was most severely dealt with by the courti
and Cbase having so browbeaten the
prisoner's counsel that they withdrew
from the case, procured a verJlct of
guilty, which, upon the courta view of
, treason as distinguished from a riot, was
"Passing from Pennsylvania to Virginia
Judge Chase at Richmond procured by
harsh means tbe Indictment of Callender,
who now resides here, for certain pas
asges which appeared in his electioneer-
, Ing pamphlet, known as the 'Prospect Be-
fore Us.' Chase at this trial was as domi
neering as before, ao that Calender's
counsel threw over their briefs, ft those
of Fries' had done, and walked out Of
ccurt, Callender, being fouod guilty .was
sentenced to nine months' imprisonment,
a fine of $200, and to give securities for
And bo it went on. High carnival of
Justice on tbe bench, Just as it is today
But it is well to remember that Chase's
famous circuit and those of other domi
neering Judges did more to elect Jeffer
son and place the party of the people in
power than any thing else. It was an ob
ject lesson not to be overlooked. And so
It Is now. Every judicial outrage in favor
of the plutocratic roasters of our courts Is
only another nail in tbe coffin of the pre
aent sytem. And be sure that when tbe
coffin Is done the corpse will be ready.

Liberty cannot long endure in any

That prices will fall or rise as the

as any law of nature.-Professor Walker.
If the whole volume of money in

prices would rise one-fourth. John
A decreasing volume of money and

more fruitful of human misery than

If a government contracted aaotwltn
a certain amount of money in circula
tlon and then contracted the money
volume before tbe debt was paid, it is
tbe most heinlous crime a government
could commit against the people.
I believe that banking institutions
are more dangerous te our liberties than
standing armies. Already they have
raised up a money aristocracy that ha
set the government at defiance. The
issuing power should be taken from tne
banks and restored to the government
and the people to whom it properly be
longs. Liet tbe banksexUt, but let them
bank on coin or treasury notes.-Thomas
Tbe government ought not to dele-
gale this power (of isulng money) if it
could. 1 1 is too grdat power to be trust
ed to any banking business whatever.
