THK ELECTION OF JUDGES.
The Raleigh Observer does "not
altogether agree" with the views of
the Star as to the election of Judges,
by the Legislature It says:! ,'t'''iJ1''
"The trouble about Judges is not io the
manner of election, but in their tenure of
office. ' The people are quite as capable of
electing Judges, as the - members of the
Legislature. We j incline to the opinion
that the people are the more proper electors,
and we have seen 'nothing- in the: canvass
now in progress to shake that opinion. The
canvass, it is true,1 has sot been free from
some features that might well have . been
spared, but in I no respect i has it
equalled in t bitterness, , or J at ' all
compared in discreditable exhibitions
with elections by the Legislature of
North Carolina, j The ' greatest' Judges
who have made illustrious: the j English
Beach took their seats upon 1 it as the re
ward of infamous political or personal ser
vices to the Sovereign. As great a Judge
as ever sat upon the Bench of any j country
became Chief Justice of the United States
io consequence of an .act which the great
majority of the people of Ametica held to
be Infamous. Within our recollection,
and we think our brother of the Star is not
younger than we, a seat . upon the Superior
Court Bench and another upon the Supreme
Court Bench were bought of the North
Carolina Legislature wilh whiskey, and it
was not done in a corner, but known of all
men. lhe names of the buying Judges.
are held in highest esteem throughout North
Carolina.": ! I" - " "
. : j - I - - - -:
We do not think these or a dozen
instances would prove that the; Judges
who. are toj try the causes of the peo
pie should jbe elected by thepeople.
New York has given that plan a very
thorough trial, aud the papers of that
State have from time to lime made
sornet fearful revelations of the cor
ruption and incapacity of the men
whom the people raised to the Bench
by their suffrages. Some men elected
by disreputable agencies may have so
borne themselves afterwards as to se-
eure the confidence and approval of
j i it '
their fellow men, but as. a general
' rule it is not well to subject men to
great temptations or place them iu a
condition of dependency. The late
Judge Gilliam preferred to continue
his ride into the night when
from one court lo another,
thus separate himself, from the com
of some lawyers 'with
whom he was travelling, rather lhan
- i .- . ' . j ,
spend the night , with a gentleman of
fortune who lived on the road and
who bad a case in the Court the.
Judge was about to bold. lie
so held his honor dear that he
could not bear to place himself,
in a position ' that would " author
ize the tongue of the slanderer to wag
the least in! his dispraise. The Judge
who has to look to the people for
election, unless! he be exceedingly
self-respecting and scrupulous, . will
be in danger, to say the least,' of de
scending to those acts and arts that
win popular favor and secure cheap
applause. We ought to have men on
the bench who are the soul of. honor,
who : 'H.;--v '-- -yv ' --
Would not flatter Neptune for bis trident;
. Or Jove for his power to thuoder.""
We have noticed that both the Pe
tersburg Index Appeal and Post
have not been favorably impressed
with what has - thus .far oc-,
curred in .our Judicial campaign
If we had no other reason - for
preferring the election of Judges by
the Legislature, just what has oc
curred would satisfy us tha,t a change
would be beneficial and becoming.
