There is some vnlid Ijasis for Ilieie compluinls, but the remedy is not to "give us back our justice courts," us the Leachvillo. Star requested lust weds, but lo correct whatever faults there may uc in the municipal court's present L;set up. The old justice of the pjace courts had! two major faults. The men who presided over them were not trained in the law and were therefore poorly qualified io rule .on many of (lie- issues that camu before them. Worse than that, in criminal cases flicir com. pensation was by fees, asses.sablo only ' H'heir.Hwy reftinicxf verdicfs of yiiilly. That filimtinn, wlialcver the miltinil /nil-ness of the nuiifistnile, tended to put the burden of proof upon the defendant rather than upon the prosecution. The results, in too many instances, were comity farm scnltnci-s for defendants unable to defend their rights, an:l expensive circuit com! appeals by those in belter financial sh.ijx;. The municipal court ha- largely eliminated these evils. The judge must be an experienced lawyer, and his compensation is independent of the 1 decisions he makes. An important gain has been made, and it should not be sacrificed because of niinbr fjuills in the law under which the conrl has been established. The people Jiave no direct voice in the choice of judges of tiie federal courts, commonly rcjrar.wd as our fairest am! strongest tribunals. Our immiciinil court, like any othuv court, OUT OUR WAY should IMJ as far removed from politics as iwssible. Inasiniicli, however, as it ficient reason why Uiu voters of Hie is an elective oil'ice, there is no snf- enliro area subject to the court's jtnls- (liclion should not have equal voice ill the election of the judge. The Imv could bo flmiiKL'd to make Hint possible.
