PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY AFTERNOON IN CHARLES TOWN, W. VA. BY THE JEFFERSON PUBLISHING COMPANY, INC. Thursday, May 21, 1959 OUR GRADUATION ADDRESS This is ~an eventful mon,th for some ten score or more of the youth of our county: Wiekhln ~ne next $ew weeks 'they will ,be receiving ,their 'l-~ig~ se(hool dlplonms and one era in ,their ~ves ~111 end ,and anOther will begi..n. To many the evenit ~ill mark bug a ~x~int of transetion from one ,type of formal education to another, wt~ile to many others the event will mark ~he pu~vting away of books and the beginning, of life work. To aJl .the graduates we extend our congratulations on ~he corn- pletion of a required cou.rse of study. We have but a sirrrple message for the graduates of 1959. It is this: " ~fter more than 2,000 years crf so-called c'ivlliza~ion the greatest secret of ~vhe world remakns uncwptured. Call ft a formula, call it whwt you will. It is the secret of kn(~wing how people on this troubled planet can - live ~togeq~her in peace and har~nony. Capturing ~his knowledge ~s ,more v~tal now (uhan at any other era in history qor ~t~ne ,plain and simple reason .thas our (~ther fields of knowledge have become so advanced tT~.t we are now literally c~p~ble of destroying ourselves completely. The piety of our 0!,rues is tha~ we know so much technically and ,so lit. tie spiritually. As scientists we are supermen well on the course of ex- plorin,g the whole universe. As ,hummnitarians we are aS bes,t barbar- ians little advanced from ~a~ve men. The survival of civilizaSlon is ut- terly dependent upon ~d~vunces in the sciences and advances in the &uman~ties keeping reasonably ,a~reast. To close cthe ~ar-reaching g~p betnveen .these t~vo is the problem and ,the challnge for those who are ~ow ~about o em~bark on ~a course of lie. At the risk of sounding pious ~nay we say ,thwt we who have failed in this task have long known how ~t can be done, but have Sot o,ne reason or another been unwilling ~o do it. The ar~swer was given ~to us 1959 years ago. The name of ~the Man who gave at to us was ,called Jesus.

Burial wllt be made in Fair~iew Cemetery. ardly orth enti0n By Henry W. Morrow " Tainted Justice come of t~he triM.~If he finds the man guilty he gets paAd, ou.t of the costs. IS he finds l~im inno- cent. or, more properly, not guil,ty he gets paid ,noth4ng. The mo~ :honeSt of men would find it diffi- cul,t to me~e out impartial justice under these tempting carcumstan- ces. kept one of them and the arrest in g officer was given half of t~hem. Since this correspondent was one of the ~t.tor, neys involved i.n l,t~h~t litig~ation he wo~xld have nor- molly felt some hesi~t~ancy abou~ wri,tAng abou,t Vhis ,, in spite of t)he fac)t thas the tri,al was a public tri,ai and the proceeding's ,are in no way privileged. Bu~ an- other newspaper has already re- ported the ineiden.t, and t~'s ob- server feels he need no~ refrain from simply because of ~his persormi connection wi~z the case. Any f~r constder'x~ion af th~s subject should b~ prefaced wi,th ~he fair and objective co~nmen~ ~h~ ~haS the mayor in the par- lit is frequently argued by the the cosks went he stated th~ he: un~''nffrvned that j.ushices of the peace receive coqn,per~a~on out of the cos~ Vhey assess aga.inst a man found to be guilty, and this is true. And this too would be il- le~a:l but for ~he sa~,~g fact that i'f a justice of the peace finds an alleged vi(H~tor not gui~lCy the county court pays him exactly the same fee for holding the trio,1 that the defendant would have pa~d him in costs had he been found guiSty. It is also argued theft nmyors are clothed wi~h powers corres- ponding to justices of the peace; but t~s is so only fur crimes corn- ,trotted wit~n ~he munimpal lira- .its, ~nd if a rnuyor chooses to aot as a~n ex-offlcio jtmtice (rf the Ipeace the fines and coat, s mus~ be tpa~d irrto the courrty court. ,titular case cited above admitted The point of tbAs whole t2~lng is to doing is a practice ~t is fol- ,~ha~t municipal officers ough% not ~lowed throughout many srn~tl ,towns in Wes~ Vi~gk-,Aa. In at least ~vhree of the five muvl~cipali~ties in Jefferson County, including Char- ]es Town, i~ is known that in mos ~oases the mayor receives a port- ,ion of "the costs" for his trottble in disposing of cases brougl-~ be- fore him. The average layman, who is gen er~liy u,nsktlled in the way~ of the law, does not realize ~ a mayor acting as a judge, ha~ no ldg~t, direotly, to any pot%ion of the pro ceeds pa4d as a fine or costs for violasion of a mumcipM ordinan- ce. The reasoning be~nd this is ,to be permuted to be a)oove and beyond the escape of the very laws t~hey are sworn and obliged ~,o execute, defend and protect. We have reached a preVty point of ,affairs when the l~aw itsel is used as a racket to ~uri,ch those Who ,are su, pposed to be its Oh.ampions. In many of our smaller towns In West Virgima one reads of the sma]~l salaries paid to mayors and marvels as the sense of public dt~ty Vlmt mot4v~tes them to take su.c~n a seen~in~ly troublesome job ,for so it,tile pay.
