TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1930 Claims Moral Victory For Foes of Hughes Appointment EDITOR'S NOTE: Senator Robert M. La Folletlc of Wisconsin Is Ihe youJijest sejutvr, but an out- itandlnf leader of the Republican progressive jroup. He was one of the forcmust In the light to block conllrmaUim of Charles Evans Hughes as ,ehiff justice of the U. S. supreme court. In the following article La Follctte bolh explains the opposition (hat arose eo the Hu»hes appointmrlit land gives his idea of tlie slgnim-ancc of what happened in (he Senate. * * • By SENATOR ItUBKRT M. La, FOU.Kr.TK (Written lor NBA Service, Inc.) (Copyright, 19^0, NBA Service, Inc.) WASHINGTON—The liberal and progressive forces of this 'country won n tremendous moral victory In the Tight to prevent confirmation of Mr. Charles Evans Hughes as chief justice ol the United States supremo court. Now that the contest Is over, the utmost significance lies In the fact that, for tlie first, time in .many years the usurpation 'of power by tl'.c supreme court has been under fire in the Senate. The court has been considered so sacrosanct that no man could criticize it without himself being attacked, even if he placed his criticism on Hie high ground of disagreement with the legal, economic and social views of a majority of the court. • I am not discussing the question of the court's right to declare acts of Congress which are repugnant to any particular clause of the Constitution null and void. I am referring to decisions of the court which bear internal evidence of the fact that tlie court has usurped power to declare laws enacted by Congress n- constliuttona] because a majority of the court did not believe- In the social or economic ends which Congress sought to achieve by the enactment of such legislation. As we look back over the history of this nation we find that some of the most important political crises have developed because of decisions ol the supreme court. Mr. Hughes, of course, was confirmed. But to my mind the fact that this fight could have taken place in the Senate and that 26 men, including some of our outstanding lawyers, should have vol- ed against him is evidence that the judicial veto and the practice of legislating by Judicial decree- practices lii which the court has indulged in more and more durin" the last few years—has created a smoldering resentment and discontent on the part of the people. This was fanned into expression during the recent fight. Bejins a New Era. I Jcel that this was the opening gun .in another historic slruggle by those who believe in democracy to prevent the supreme court exercising an unwarranted power under Senator La Follette the gufse of declaring laws unconstitutional and thereby thwarting Ihe will of the people as expressed by Congress through, legislation. It k important to note that there has been placed in the Record a review of Hie decisions of the court which clearly demonstrates that it ts 'deciding these pressing economic and social questions on Die ground . of Us approvi^ or disapproval of the objectives sought by legislation. In the future no nominee to tint, high court win ever again be considered by Hie Senate until there lias been an investigation of his acknowledged position. The Hughes fight isn't the last fight on the confirmation of a justice of the supreme court. It is only the first. If the legalists, tliosir who nrc lawyers or who have tlrt legal point of view, watch witli alarm tills ne\v development, tlie responsibility rests squarely on the court Itself 'because of its exorcise of the judicial veto nnd Its usurpation of the legislative power by judicial fia(. I'cople Now Aroused Meanwhile, using the word In Its highest sense, it may be snid that (he Hughes fight had immense pu- lllical significance. .The people have been aroused and made aware ol tlie tremendous inilueiicp of the supreme court on their social and economic welfare. We Itnve brought lo me forefront an issue of great public interest and it will be Impossible . to nvold Us discussion. Meanwhile, we can only hope that whnt look place In the Senate will have a salutary effect on the futurs deliberations of the suprem courtj A star just visible to Die average eye on a clear, moonless night, Is said to be of the sixth magnitude; one distinctly brighter Is ol the fifth magnitude; and so on up to the brightest stars, which aid of the first magnitude.
