Any worthwhile accomplishment in that direction will reap u just reward in pounhir applause and in increased confidence in the profession. What tlie public interest really requires of the lawyers, however, is something more than a mere imrgini;. of the rolls. There are crook.s and shysters in every line of work. Perhaps the loyal profession oll'ers llieir activities tin especially proliUiljle lield and for thai reason lias attracted more than its just proiiorlion of them, but that is doubtful. In any event they are not I lie major cause of what to the layman is the chief evil besetting the profession of law. It is desirable to get rid of them, but it is doubly desirable to achieve for the profession in general u new point of view toward its work. There are quacks and scoundrels among itodors of medicine, but by and large the' profession is sincerely dcvol- ' ccl to life preservation of health and life. IsMhe legal profession similarly devoted to the preservation of justice and obedience to law? Don't ask silly questions. Shysters aside, the sorry fact remains thai to' a large part of the legal profession, including men of honor and reputation, a case at law is not an impersonal effort to arrive at justice under the law, but a game to be won. The other day, after Luke l.ea had finally been lodged in prison, the North Carolina prosecutor who handled the CM--C against him gave an excellent illustration of the professional point of view, lie made a public statement in which he complimented Lea and his attorneys on the wonderful fight they had made, declaring that never in his experience had he been connected with a case in which such able use was marie of every conceivable loophole for positioning or "voiding tliu penally for crime. He even intimated iliat Ilia respect 1'or sucli iiu able antagonist was such that, now that the light WHS over, lie might give his support lo an appeal for clemency. 01' course the gentleman's puriwsu probably was to pay an indiml compliment to his own skill in bringing the prosecution lo a .successful conclusion. Hut it remains a good illustration of Ihe point of this editorial. Our courtrooms, or most of them, are so many fields of play in which skillril antagonists strive for victory. Complicated rules of procedure and evidence govern the play. The contestant who, within the rules, scores the most points, receives the crown of victory. If jus- lice is done, that is gratifying, though often .seemingly incidniliil. 11 may be argued that under the lawn and rules which govern our courts the matching of legal wits in Iliu courtroom is Ihe best way of arriving at just verdicts. Thai is nun- sense. In criminal practice, particularly, it is Ihe custom for defense counsel to lake advantage of any technicality (o hamper the prosecution. Faulty wording of ;in indictment has often bcui enough lo free a felnn. Samuel Insull today is seeking freedom not on grounds of innocensc of the charges ogainsl hin\ but tin the allegation thai proper legal formalities were not fulfilled in securing his return lo this country. If the months of eifort and thousands of dollars of expense involved in bringing Sam back can be set at naught by this plea it will be a splendid victory for bis lawyers, but another blow to public confidence in the legal profession and the courts. Every criminal is entitled to his day in court, and lo representation there by able counsel. Bui until the time comes when no reputable lawyer will seek for .liis client more than bis simple deserts the profession will fall far short of fulfilling its true obligations.
