Appoint judges for life ,1 declares Justice Alder says Massachusetts plan of put Ting men on Bench for keeps is Wisest has hot shot for Teddy wants Roosevelt nominated to see him beaten Wilson or Bryan could do it Asa lawyer i am absolutely opposed to Uny bar being placed upon the judiciary said judge George d. Alden of the Massachusetts supreme court who came to Beloit to speak before the Tull Bible class in the Simpson m. E. Church thursday evening. The corporation influence As it is being exposed now is bad enough but it would be worse to make the judge responsible to popular vote for decisions which May be rendered in absolute keeping with the established Law but nevertheless May be unpopular. The judge should be absolutely free and unbiased and he can not perform his duties if there Are any influences that May be brought to Bear upon him. Al believe that the need for Reform lies in the method of making appointments. In Massachusetts judges Are appointed for life by the governor with the Aid and consent of his coun cil. Inasmuch As the governors coun Ell of nine members is frequently of a different political complexion from the governor the appointee of Tho i executive has to pass the closest scrutiny. The result of our system is that there has never been a question of scandal about the decisions of and judge in our state. If i were the defendant in a Case i would rather take my chances with the judge than submit my Case to a jury. Our jury system is a farce. The jurors do not understand the bearing of half the testimony that is presented to them and we Are con stantly up against the professional juror especially the juror who serves in the interest of the Public service corporation. The judge who is appointed for life and is secure in his position has a single incentive to do what is right. He is not subject to popular whim nor is he tagged by any corporation. Asa safeguard against actual venality something More than a Mere suspicion we always have the process of impeachment. I am unalterably opposed to any sort of judicial recall. I have always been a Democrat ont when Bryan was nominated in 1890, i did not vote for him. I did vote for Bryan in 1908, however As continued on Pace fifteen.

Honeyman chief counsel for the defendants made his opening address to the jury. In the course of his remarks he emphasized the fact that the defendants had adopted the use of the Arrott Dredger which has figured prominently in the License agreements signed by those on trial. Or. Honeyman con tended that the Dredger permitted the factories to turn out better bathtubs and other enamelled Iron Ware brought about better conditions for the work men.
