Slavery is but half abolished, emancipation is but half completed, while millions of freemen with votes in their hands are left without education.

The law of criminal libel rests upon that secure foundation. There is also the conceded authority of courts to punish for contempt when publications directly tend to prevent the proper discharge of judicial functions.charles evans hughes
