Raleigh. June 23.—“ The real strength
and power of the courts must rest ulti

with the duty of studying the organiza

procedure of the judicial system of the
state of North Carwina; and it is the
expressed desire of tse legislative depart
ment that We recommend such changes
and reforms in the system and in the
practice and procedure of the courts as

proper. T ; ,
“The reason for foe establishment ’of

the chief justice. '“Ours ia a govern

What is wanted is not impatient criti
cism. of whieh much has been given in
the past, but competent advice. The leg
islature is seeking to better and to ren
der more efficient administration of jus
tice in the stnte.
“The real strength and power of the
courts must rest ultimately upon the
faith and confidence of the people. The
three departments of government in this
country draw their life blood from the
same source. They are separate and dis
tinct. it is true, yet each serves as a
cheek and auxiliary to the others. They
are servants of a common master, work
ing in a common business, striving for
a common end. I think it may be safe
ly said in this learned presence that* no
institution, ever yet devised, can sustain
its authority over a free and thoughtful
people unless it merit their respect and
confidence. Hampered as we may be
b.v the restrictions of certain statutes
Which at times seem to tangle justice in
the net of form, still the responsibility
is ours to merit and retain the respect
of the people at large. No man ean
measure the debt of the county to its
courts. On the other hand, who dares
to measure the obligation and duty of
the bench and bar to a patient and pa
triotic people in seeing to it that their
faith and confidence are justified and sus
tained? This is not a-duty whieh we
owe to ourselves as much as it io a
debt which the bench and bar owe the
state and nation, over and above the ob
ligations of citizenship, 6y virtule of their ■
high calling, and by reason of their op
portunity to' look ‘beyond ‘the vision of ■ '
battling races and an impoverished earth
and catch a dreaming glimpse of peace,’
to borrow an expressive phrase from Mr.
Justice Holmes. Faith, respect and con
fidence constitute the trinity upon which
the enduring strength of the courst must
be planted and sustained.”
Judge Stacy declared that “it is the j
work of the trial courts to settle liti- .
gat ion; it is the task of the appellate
courts to settle the law; it is the busi
ness of all to move with reasonable dis
patch, that justice may not be denied ]
by delay. And I pause to make this 1
pertinent observation about the admin
istration of the courts: When parties re
sort to the judiciary for the settlement
of their disputes, they are invoking a
public agency, and they should not for
get that rules of procedure are necessary
and must be observed, in order that the '
courts may properly discharge their du
ties. Afjfl while the adjective law is ;
not to be .enforced harshly or Oppressive
ly, but rather In a spirit of liberality,
to the end that justice may be adminis- '
tered in all cases, yet this does not mean '
that the courts should apply the rules,
of practice in such a manner as to favor
the negligent and at the same time penal
ize the diligent party.
“Quite a number of recommendations [
have already been suggested for consi
eration, and others will readily occur !
as we progress with our deliberations.
But as to whether they shall be taken
up in the first instance by the whole
conference or referred to commmittees to I
