High Court PAIR REST AFTER MINE RESCUE By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON is nothing surprisj ing in the fact I that Associate j Justice Louis D B r a n d e i s and I Benjamin N CarI dozo are on the j liberal side of ev ery sPnt decision which the United States supreme court r en d ers They are liberals of long standing But one scarce ly would have thought that As sociate Justice Harlan F Stone would be so consistently of their faction His law firm of Satterlee Canfield and Stone had a highly conservative practice Among its clients for ex ample was the house of J P Mor the elder J then his estate in the hands of the present magnate This was not what om would be likely to call a liberalizing professional connection Stone was appointed too to the attorney generals office and later to the supreme bench by President Coolidge who was not noted for pickingvery liberal folk to fill im portant positions within his gift Branded Reactionary Ethiopian Troops Blast Road to Addis Ababa LEADER

hurtled Death of Boy 3 Changes From Accident to Murder What is more his confirmation as j over almost perpendicular cliffs a supreme court justice was fought in the Urited States senate on the ground that he was a reactionary Liberal scions quite generally ob jected to him An old mining engineer now dead of the name of James B Ownbey once a small partner of the elder J P Morgan came all the way from Colorado and waged a formidable campaign to try to show that Stone was unsuitable He charged that Stone had furnished the legal acu men to flimflam him according to his own account out of approxi mately in the Morgan es tates interest Colonel Ownbey was armed besides with a resolution oi the Colorado legislature expressing sympathy with him He also had the support of the now defunct Peo ples Legislative Service a creation principally of the late Senator Rob ert M La Follette and therefore naturally a mighty liberal outfit Liberals in Sorrow The extreme liberals believed that they had suffered a severe jolt when the senate confirmed Stones su preme court appointment Some of them voted for him to be sure The late Senator Thomas J Walsh was one of them I recall I asked him how he reconciled his ballot with Colonel Ownbeys compliments and the senator said Even if the colonel was flimflammed it wai done strictly according to legal Senator Walsh was a fanatical legalist if what was done was dons staturatoriaily it was right as per his reckoning Parenthetically What Stone did according to Cwnbey as a Morgan lawyer was to dig up a longforgotten obsolete law and suddenly apply it tc the colonels disadvantage It was a Delaware law and the Delaware legislature its attention called to the matter hastily re pealed it But that was too late to help Col onel Ownbey Believed Conservative All this was of a nature to give Justice Stone an extremely conser vative sendoff As a supreme court justice he is1 inaccessible as any hermit but I interviewed him as attorney gener al I thought he was a moderate conservative Yet here he is lined up regularly with radical Justice Cardozo and still more radical Jus tice Brandeis Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes has some liberal tradition Associate Justice Owen J Rob erts is a little bit liberal Heaven forbid any liberality in Associate Justices Willis Van De vauter James C McReynolds George Sutherland or Pierce Butler But
