As the conclusionwJWriwd at b 7.**J e "Melbourne Argus 7^'on the Ward-Ohnstie oass has been quoted and somewhat widely commented upon, we may give the summing np of that journal on the question, wbioh after rsoiting the facts waa as follows:— "The Ministry relied upon tbe wholesome role that tbe judge should not have tried a oass m wbioh be laid himself through bis own private business relations to -have his integrity impugned. Instances were given m whioh Judge Ward had himself objeoted, on muoh less serious grounds, to other judges Bitting upon a particular case ; and though there has been great exottement m New Zealand, and he has fretted and fumed through many letters, he oan hardly esoape < from the faot that hie position was wrong, misleading, and liable to expose him to 1 suspicion, His judgment may have baen < perfectly oorreot. It may be that, conscious of his own dimeult position, he leaned to tha Bide of the prosecuted rather than the | proeeoutor. All students of human nature acknowledge that men will sometimes incline j to the Bide apparently opposed to their ( interests, m order to free themselves and ( their conscience from any charge of unfair* . ness. Nevertheless, the inexpediency and fatuity of allowing a judge to try a case when he is indebted to one ot the parties is ( evident. And whether the New Zealand < Government was right or not m the method of its rebuke it was certainly right m principle."
