Child Labor Law
Is Demanded by
' Allied Unions
LaFollrtte Declares "Encroach.
rornU of Federal Court"
Have Wrc-.cd Sovereign,
t ty From' People."
Cincinnati, O.June 14. (By A.
P.) Aiertin that by a procci of
gradual encroachmsan" the federal
court of the coantry have "tMi
sovereignty from the people," Sen
ator Laioilrttt of Wisconwn. in ail
addren here today before the Amer
ican Federation of Labor convention,
proposed n amendment to the con
nitution denying the power of lower
court! to set aide a federal law it
unconstitutional and providing for
the nullification of any uch decistoa
by the supreme-court by re-enactment
of the statute. ,
Citing the recent decision of the
supreme court holding uncouitita
tional the child labor tax law a
. "typical of the cooduct of the federal
judiciary, and particularly the sn
prejne court wneoevcr congress hat
, sought to enact progressive and hu
mane legiklatib which mas offensive
to great financial interests," Senator
Laiolktte declared the supreme
tnbvnal of the country was "today
the actual ruler of the American peo
ple. ' " " .
Five Are Supresne Ruler.
"The law Is what they say it is."
the Wisconsin Senator continued,
"and not what the people through
congress enact" " Even the constitu
tion of the United States is not what
its plain terms declare, but what
these nine men construe it to be. In
fact, five of these nine men are ac
tually the wprerae rulers, for by a
bare majority the court has re
peatedly overridden the will of the
people. . ...
"The nine lawyers who constitute
' the supreme court are placed in po
sition of power for life, not by the
votes of the people, but by presiden
tial appointment Ex-President Taft
was made chief justice by President
Harding. Thus a man was invested
with the enormous prestige and in
fluence of chief justice by presiden
tial appointment who had been re
pudiated by the voters of the United
States on his record. No one will
contend that he could have been
elected chief justice by the vote of
the people.' And yet Chief Justice
Taft wrote an opinion that annulled
the child labor law; he wrote the
opinion in the Coronado Coal com
pany case. Ia making this observa
tion I levy no criticism at the per
sonnel of the court I am not con
cerned with personalities. I am deal
ing with fundamentals." -
' It cannot be dented that "we are.
ruled by a ' judicial oligarchy," the
senator asserted, adding that while
many of the. minor federal judges
"sharing the .sovereign power" of i
the supreme court, were "excellent
and enlightened men, some of them,
