The president had au opportunity to
talk with the ' New Jersey Jurist last
week when he was In New York. Both
Chancellor Pitney and Justice Sways
were lursts at the luncheon given In the
' president's honor by Governor Murphy.
Chancellor Pitney sat beside the presi
dent, and the Impression be made on the
chief executive at that time was reflected
In Mr. Tart's speech at the doe of the
Chancellor Pitney meets many of the
president's requirements for a supreme
court justice. He Is Just a little more

served as associate Justice of the New
Jersey supreme court from 1101 to IMS,
and became chaacellor In the latter year.
His term would aspire In IMS. His home

The statement that Chancellor Pitney
would be named aa the successor of the
late Justice John M. Harlan was made
at the White House today subsequent
to oall by John W. Griggs, former at
torney general of the United Btates and
a delegation of New Jersey lawyers, all
uf whom spoke of Judge Pitney la the
la traded as Rarprlse.
The fact that Mr. Taft probably would
select Chancellor Pitney did not become
known until last night, and then It was
discussed only among some of the presi
dent's loasst friends. Unusual efforts

testing against the appointment by Presi
dent Taft of Chancellor Mahlon Pitney of
New Jersey to succeed the lata Justice
Harlan of the supremo bench.
In a statement to the Associated Presa
President L'rlck declared that the ap
pointment of Pitney to the supreme bench
would be Inimical to the Interests of the
entire working class In the United
States. He cited several recent Judicial
opinions of the New Jersey jurist as evi
dence of this statement, referlng par
ticularly to the case of Frank and Dun
gan against Herald from the Atlantic
Reporter, as Indicating that Chancellor
Pitney was Irrevocably pledged to prop
erty right against human rights.
"The exponents of organisation among
employes and those who advocate prop
erty rights to the' exclusion of all others,
should be much pleased ro bar a Judge
on the supreme bench with a judicial
mind so well developed In their interests,"
said Mr. Urtck, -but to the Individual

respected. President Taft s appointment
of Mr. Pitney will be most disastrous at

The quotation from Chancellor Pitney s
iedeion referred to by Mr. Urtck follows:
"What right have Frank and Dungan
to eome here with this bill of complaint
seeking to protect these females In their
undoubted right to waJk the streets of
PatersoB unmolested. The answer to
this question Is. that they are servants

Decision of II Ink Court
WASHINGTON. Feb. l.-only congress
and not the supreme court of the United
states may object to the Initiative and
referendum method of legislation In the
states, the court Itself decided today.
That tribunal held that the question of
whether a state still retained a republi
can form of government, guaranteed by
the federal constitution after It adopted
the initiative and referendum method was
a political problem for congress and not a
Judicial one for the courts.
The decision was based on the claim
of the Paclflo States Telephone and Tel
egraph company that a tax upon It. Im
posed by the initiative and referendum
method In Oregon, was unconstitutional.
The Initiative and referendum provisions
In Missouri, California, Arkansas, Colo

balance. An adverse decision would have
affected proposed legislation of that char
acter In many other states.
