BOYLE HITS POLITICS IN
By Staff Correspondent
City, June 3.-The "abhorrent” practice of “parceling out judicial
offices as part of a nefarious spoils system" must cease if the honor
and eminence of the bench is to be upheld, former Judge William T.
Boyle, of Camden, told the State Bar Association yesterday.
Boyle, delivering his farewell address as
retiring president of the association, mentioned no names. However, he
apparently was referring to certain judicial appointments which
recently drew widespread criticism, not because of the ability of the
appointees but because of the political nature of the nominations.
He spoke of one county which has a vacancy
in the office of prosecutor and a vacancy on the common pleas bench,
neither of which has been filled because the political leaders could
not get together and decide who they wanted.
seems," he observed, "that one senator is able to block appointments.”
Senate President Richards, of Atlantic City,
has been at odds with Democratic leaders In Atlantic County over
appointments to the common pleas bench and the prosecutorship in that
"'At one time," said Boyle, “there were
standards for qualifications maintained for men of the bench. In recent
years, however, appointing and confirming powers engage in what appears
to be a battle of political strategy over judicial appointments.
"The political party system permeates every
branch of government in the state, but it should have no part where the
administration of justice is concerned or is involved.
"We cannot be unmindful of the criticisms of
the press, reflecting upon the manner in which judicial selections have
been made in recent years. The bar association is without influence in
this branch of government which is most vital to this profession.
"In the selection of judicial officials
such an organization should not be ignored. We have complacently
submitted to the growth of a system that is bringing reproach to the
administration of justice.
"There is talk of trade and barter
respecting these high offices throughout the state, and the press has
not hesitated to express sharp criticism of political deals involving
judicial offices. This association should not remain silent while
political county committees appraise and endorse their favorites for
office, with only the political import of the appointee in mind.
Highest Types Needed
“It would be a great day for the state only
the interests of the people were considered where courts are concerned,
I trust the day will
Men, after years of honorable service upon
the bench, have failed reappointment, because political leaders have
been opposed to them. This parceling out judicial offices as a part of
a nefarious spoils system is abhorrent and should be met with vigorous
protests from this association.
"The time is at hand for courageous and
determined action on our part. Otherwise, the profession of the law
will yield its position of eminence, honor and influence in the forum
and on the bench to the place-hunter and spoils-monger, and then, if
that day shall ever arrive, there will be missing from the temples of
justice the learned and honorable ministers to whom we have been so
long accustomed and the glory of the bar will pass forever."
Fears that the sweeping moves of the
Roosevelt administration since March 4 would raise grave legal
questions was expressed by William D. Mitchell, of New York, solicitor
general under President Coolidge and Attorney general under President
"What has happened in Washington in the last three months," Mitchell said, "will keep lawyers occupied for the next three years. It is obvious that the courts are to be confronted with grave legal questions during a period of great unrest and public agitation." .
