a special investi gator from the office of the Governor -Gener a l, Hon. Francis Burtom. Harrison, who found the respond ent, Provinc ial Govern or of Rizal, guilty of "abuse of authority," reads as follows : "JOHNS ON, J .,

dissent ing:

This is an original action for the writ of manda.-mus to require the responde nt.s to reinstate the petitiOlf1e r to his office as presiden t of the municipa lity of P asay , Province of Rizal. The fact s upon which the petition is based are not in rlispute. They are not only 'admitted by t he demun'er of the responde nt Andres Gabriel but were expressly admitted by him in open court, They are: ( 1) That the petitione r was duly elected by the people of the municipa lity of Pasay as presiden t for the periud of three years from the 16th day of October, 1919 ; (2) That the petitiOlne r was suspende d from said office on the Il3th day of Septemb er, 1920. by the responde nt Andres Gabriel, without notice, without a hearing, and without ~n oppcrrtun ity to present any proof whatsoev er in his defense. The facts having bemt admitted , we h a ve only a question of law to decide, to wit: ]s tbe governor o;f a province authorize d under the law to suspend a municipal presiden t from his office, to which he h as been legally ejected for R. period fixed by the law. without ~otice, without a hearing, and without an opportun it y to present proof in his defense? Section 3 (first paragrap h) of the Jones Law provides "that no law shall be enacted in said Islands which shall deprive any persO'll of life. liberty or property without due process of law, or deny any person therein the equal protectic: m of the law". Section 2188 of Act No. 2711 provides :

to

"Section £188, SupervisO 'ry authority of prov_ incial g01JBrno-r over ?tlUnicipal officers.- The provincial governor shall receive and investiga te comp laints against municipa l officers for n eglect of duty. oppressio n , corruptio n, or other form of mal~ administ ration in office. For minor delinquen cy he may repriman d the offender ; and if a mare severe punishm ent seems to be desirable , he shall s ubmit written chargcs touching t h e matter to the p)"1)lv~ incial boal'd, and he may in such case suspend the officel' (not being the municipa l t reasurer) pend~ ing action by the board, if in his opiniQ'n t h e charge be one affecting the officia l integri ty of the offi~ cer in question. Where suspensiO n is thus effected. the writtEln chaJ,'"ges against the officer shall be filed with the board within ten days." It w ill be noted that while section 2188 prov ides for a suspensi on, it makes no provision for the proce~ dore in such cases. In the absence of a procedur e prescribe d by the statute, we are of the opinion that t he p rocedure marked by the Constitut ion (Jones Law) must be followed. to wit: That no person shall be d eprived of h is life, liberty, or property without due process of law. "Due !)rocess of law" has been de-

1831

fined many. many times. and simply means that bc~ fore a man can be deprived of h is life, liberty or property. he must be given an opportun ity to defend himse lf. The right to hold, occupy and exercise an office is as much a species of property within the protectio n of the law. as any other thing capable of possessio n: and to wrongful ly deprive one of it or unjustly with~ hol~ it, is an injury wh.ich the law can redress in as runple a manner as other wrong. A n d that right j:i regarded 3S a right within the protectio n of the FourteenL h Amendm ent to the Constitu tion of the United States. which says: "No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privilege s or immuniti es of citizens of the United States; nor shall RllY State deprive any person of life, liberty or property without due process of law".

The power to remove an officer who has been duly elected for a specified period can be exercised only, Rnd for just CR.U£e, after the officer has had an opportunity for defense. In the absence of express power, given in QlCp~SS wCP'ds, the presump tion m ust be in view of the pro· visions of the Jones Law above Quoted. that the II> gislaLure intended t hat every qfficer duly elected for a fi~ed period should be entitled to hold h is oUice until t he expiratio n of such period, unless removed therefrom for cause, after .a fair and impartia l investiga tion in which he has been given an opportun ity to defend himself. (1 Dillon, Mun. Corp. sec. 250: Field vs. Common wealth. 32 Pa., 478; Stadier vS'. Detroit. 13 Mich., 346: State vs. Bryce, Ii Ohio St., 2; Bagg's Case, 11 Coke. 93: Hoboka.n vs. Gear, 27 N. J.

Jose Rizal, could read t he decision of the majority of this court and thereby learn that one of the citizens of the Philippin e Islands has been deprived of his property and rights. without a h earing, he would turn over in his grave and, with a wailing cry. exclaim: "A social cancer of a ncw type is again in my beloved land !" The Question presented is not a new one. It has been discussed since long before the Englis h people, in mass, met upon the fields .of Runnym ede and demanded and obtained from an unwillin g king the Magna Charta. wruoh has constitut ed the chief stone in the political edifice of all the civilized nations since that time (year 1215), I n creating the constitut ion for the Filipino people, the United Slates Governm ent expressly provided t hat no person, no Filipino, no citizen of the Philippin e I slands, shall be deprived of his life or property without "due process of law."

CORNEJO'S COMMONWEALTH DIRECTORY OF THE P HI LI PPINES

The Question has been presented to the cou.rts many, many times, and without cltception the said p rovisiO'll of t he constitution has been sustained. eltcept where t.he same const.itution contains other p~ vis ions authorizing the suspension of officers without (l. hearing. In the Philippine I slands Lhe.re is no authority in the constitution (t.he Jones Law) authorizing or justifying t.he statute in Question. Not only is such a st.atute not authorized but it is absolutely prohibited hy the provisions of the Jones Law Quoted above. The Jeme:s Law provides t.hat no law shall be enacted, etc. In a discussion of the subject before us we must ~ear in mind the distinction bet.ween an appointive nnd an elective officer. There are a few cases which hold that in case of an appointive gfficer, where the appointment is at the pleasure of the appointing power, his suspension or removal is e:ocercisable at t.he mere discretion of the .(:.ppoint.ing power. (State vs. St. Louis" 90 Mo.. 19; Field vs. Commonwealth. 32 Po.. St .. 278; State vs. Johnson, 18 L. R. A. 410.) "'here a person is appointed to an office and is mel'e employee, whose position does not bave the dignity of fl.n office, and by virtue of his appointment, m ay be removed or suspended at the will of t.he appointing power, then, of course, the ruJe is different. Such persons are not officers but mere employees. (Thorpp "so Langdon, 40 Mich. 673: People vs. 'McDill , 16 Mich.. 182: Portman vs. State Board, etc.. 50 Mich. 258; Attorney General V3. Cain 84 Mich .â&#x20AC;˘ 223.) On the other band the authorities are practically unanimous, whel'e the uppointment or election is made for :1 definite term. and t he removal is to be fqr cause, that the JXlwer of removal or suspension can not be exercised without due notice and hearing. (Mechem on Public Officers, sec. 454; Dullan vs. Wilson, 53 Mich., 392 (51 Am. ReP. 128); Bagg's Case 11 Coke, 99: King "~So Caskin, 8 Term Rep., 209: Ramshay's Case Ad. & E.

St. 478: State vs. Bryce. 7 Ohi.o, 82: Foster vs. Kans."lS. 112 U. S. 201 : Kenard vs. Louisiana. 92 U. S, 480.) The constitution and laws of thc Philippine Islands having created the office of president of the different municipalities and having fixed definitely the tenure of said office, the legislature, by viltue of the provisions of the Jones Law, is prohibited from enacting nny law which wouJd justify any individual in the state in removing him from office without first present . ing charges against him and giving him an oppqrt.unity to be heard. (Removal of Public Officer, 25 Am. Law Rev., 201; State vs. Commonwenlth, 3 Metcalr (Ky.) 237: Page vs. Hardin (supra): Brown vs. Grovel', S Bush (Ky.) ]; Commonwealth vs. Gamble, 62 Pa .. 342; Sate vs. Draper, 50 Mo., 353; State vs, Thoman. 10 Kansas 191: State vs. McMeely, 24 La.

In the ease of State vs. Hewitt ( 16 L. R. A, 413) t he attorney genernl of thc State of South Dakota admitted in open court "that it is true, as contended by

the relator, that t he prepo nderance of authorities is against the r cm()Val of the officer for cause, w hose term of office is fixed by law wit-hout formw char~ and a hearing thereon on timely notice." Mr. Justice Bailey of the English Court. in the case of Williams vs. Bagot (3 Barn and C. 785 ). said: "It is contrary to common sense of justice that any party could be de prived of his rights and be concluded unheard." Every officer in the Philippine Government who has hoen legally e lected for a fb:ed period has a right to be heard under t he provisions of the Jones Law before he can be deprived of his rights. H e has a right to be heard and t.o explain. In the absence of express cOnstitutiona1 authority, the Philipp in e Legislature is prohibited from enacting a law by which a n y officor elected by t he people for a definite period may be suspended or l'emOlVed from his ofiice wi t hout first havin g been give n an opportunity to be heard and to present whatever defense he may have. (Janes Law, sec, 3; Dulla n vs. Wilson, 51 Mich. ]28: Hallgreen vs. Campbell, 82 Mich. 255; JacQues vs. Little, 51 Kansas, 309.) In the case of Dullan vs. Wilson (53 Mich. 392) the Supreme Court of the State of Michigan, with whom Mr. Justice Cooley agreed, said: "We have examined. carefully the authCU'ities cited upon t he brief of the learned counsel for relator in support of the position t.hat no notice is required to be given. and that the action fYf the executive is {inal and conclusive. It is sufficient to say, without commenting specially upon t hem, that t.he reasoning of t.hose cases does not commend it.self to our judgment. They appear to us to be opposed, not only to the decided weight of authority, Lut also to the fundamental principles of justice." In the case cd Jaligren vs. Campbell (82 Mich. 255) , the Supreme Court of the State of Michigan said: "We nave not found any case where an officer who is appoin ted for a: fixed term has been held to be removable except for cause, a nd wherever cause must be assigned for t.he removal of t he officer. he is entitled t o notice and a chance to defend himself." In the case of Han vs. Boston (142 Mass. 90) it was held t hat no power to remove or suspend a n officer could be exer cised until after notice and an opportunity by the official in Question to be heard in his own defense. In the case of State vs. St. Louise (90 Mo. 19) the Supreme Court said: "When the removal is not discretionary, but must be for a cause,.... and nothing is said as to the procedure, a specification of t he charges, notice, a nd an opportunity to be heard are essent:al." Mr. Dillon, in his valuable work on Municipal Corporation s (sec. 250) says: "Wher e the right of removalor suspension is confined to specific causes, such power cannot be exercised until t here have been formulated charges against t he oHicer. notice thereof, and nn opportunity for defense." (Biggs vs. Mc Bride, 17 Ore" 640; State vs. Hawkins, 44 Oh io St. 98). In t he case of State vs. Hastings 797) the Supreme Court of Nebraska, commenting not only upon t he cases also upon other cases, said: 'It seems

( 16 L.R.A. after citing cited above plain to us

the doctrine of these cases is in accord with the weight of authority and is supported by the soundest reasons." It is true that a few cases enn be found which hold that an officer may be suspended under a statute. without notice and without a hearing. But it is believed that an e..'o::amination of each of such cases will show that such statutes -are authorized by the constitution of the particular state. (Crimes vs. Distri ct Judge, 101 Tex .. S6; Poe vs. State, 72 Tex., 625 ; State vs. J ohnsocn, 18 L. R.A. 410.)

All that has been said above relat~s only to the petition for mandamus against the respondent, the provincial governor of RizaJ. I am fully convinced that a great preponderance of the jurisprudence upon the questions which I have here discussed shows clearly that the petitioner herein w,as suspended in a manner not authorized by law, a:n.d that the writ of mandamus prayed for should be issued, directing the reinstatement of the petitioner. With reference to the respondent provincia) board. the record shows that it was not a party to the acts complained of in the petition in the present case. The petition, therefore, as against t he provincial board should be den ied."

Mr. Justice J ohnson was a champion of democracy and social justice. But like the late Governor-General Leonard Wood, he was badly misunderstood by a great majority of our political leaders. H e was once severely criticised in the Manila newspapers and denounced before t he Philippine Senate for allegedly meddling in politics, when, in the early part of 1921, rumors were spread in all parts of the country 'to the effect that he was aspiring for the office of Governor-General of the Philippines as suc~essor to Governor Harrison, ,....hen he had not as yet resigned from his office as a member of 'the supreme court. The criticism was highly unjust and unfounded and was made at a time when he was absent from 't he Islands and was not in a position to defend himself j yet, upon his return, he was visited by the same person responsible f or the attack, who made a verbal explanation for the wrong he had done, and the grand old man willingly accepted the written apology of t he gentleman, and thereafter, they路 became good friends until he returned to his homeland and died at Palo Alto, California, on July 31, 1933. The deceased was a member of the Board of Regents, University of the Philippines, and author of "Johnson on Bills and Notes," and editor of second edition, Norton on Bills and Notes j and third edition, Bliss on Code Plead-

Brigadier 路Genernl Vicente Lim

Brigadier General Vicente Lim who re t ired from the Uni ted States Army with the rank of Lieutenan t Colonel, has been accorded a fitting recognition for his distinguished service by his assignment to the General Staff of the Philippine Army as Chief of the War Plans Division. With his \veIl rounded military education and long experience as an officer of the United States Anny, he comes to the Philippine Army full y

prepared to handle the duties of Ms position. Brigadier General Lim has just reached his prime and his retirement from the United States Army was not in the sense that his services were no longer needed there, rather it was due to the gre3!t need of his experience by our own Commonwealth Government and the urgings of his own conscience that now is the time for him to render service to his country. Brigadier General Lim was born on April 5, 18&8, in Calamba, Laguna. After obtaining his early education in the public school of his home town, he came to Manila and enrolled in the Philipine Normal School where he graduated in 1908. Although the educational attainment of a graduate in the Philippine Normal School in 1908 was eq uivnlent only to a completion of the 8-econd Year of the present High School course, he participated in the competitive examination for appointment as cadet to West Point. He passed the examination with flying colors, was sent to the United States and on March 1, 1 910, he entered the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, where he graduated on June 11, 1914. On June 12, 1914, he was commissioned second lieutenant in the Philippine Scouts, United States Army, and ordered to return to the Philippines with permission to pass Europe. He was touring Russia at the outbreak of the World War and had the thrilling experience of returning to the Philippines by way of the Trans-Siberian Railway. Arriving in the Philippines, he was first assigned to Fort San Pedro, Iloilo. He was promoted to first lieutenant on April 2, 1918; to captain on December 18,1922; to major on Aplil 29, 1923, and to lieutenant colonel on November 1, 19 35. In 1916, he was on special detail with the Insular Government as instructor in the Philippine Mili'Q'a:ry Academy at Baguio . It was while he was instructor in Baguio that young Lieutenant Lim firs t met the fOlmel' Miss Pilar Hidalgo, whom he married later, and who in her own way has achieved celebrity no less than that of her husband. General Lim remained as insg'uctor in Baguio until 1917, when he was assigned to

Jolo, Sulu. Then, followed assigrunen ts to Pettit Barracks, Zamboangs, and to Fort William McKinley, Rizal. In 1926 General Lim went to the United States where he too k the advanced course in the Infantry School at Fort Benning 1 Georgia, where he graduated in 1927. Then he went to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, where he gradu ated from the Command I3Ind General Staff School jn 1928. As a culmination to these advanced studies he was ordered to t he Army War Col. lege at Vira shington, D.C., where he grad ua ted in 1929. Returning to the Phjlippines in the same year, he was detailed as Commandan t of the Reserve Officers' Training Corps Unit a~ San Juan de Letran College. It was while on special detail in this collel?:e that he was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel on November 1, 1935 . He remained here until July I, 1936, when he was appointed to his present post as Chief of the War Plans Division, Philippine Army I with the r ank of Brigadier General. General Lim has the distinction of being first F ilipino graduate of ""Vest Point, and is the only Fi.1ipino who graduated from the Uni ted States Army War College. The heavy responsibilities in the present assignment of Brigadier General Lim augur for him more brilliant achievements in the PhiHppine Army. llMJAP, Jose Businessman; manager.

Balayan, province of Batangas, on April 6, 1863. He is bhe son of N atalio Lopez and Maria Castelo, both natives of said town. He received his primary' education from the public school of Balayan in 1875, and was sent to Manila by his parents to study m the Ateneo Municipal de Manila, where he completed his elementary course, and later he studied under a private teacher, Dr. Cipriano Gonzales, who had his school in Manila in 1880. Two years later he enrolled at the College of San Juan de Letran and then transferred to the University of Santo Tomas, where he completed his secondary education in 1884, returning afterwards to his horne town where he spent eight years as agriculturist, helping his parents attend to eheir vast interests as farm owners. It was during his stay in Balayan when he read Noli-Me-Tange?'e and El Filibusterismo and learned much of RizaJ's plan to establish a colony in Borneo where he could start the movement to free the Filipino people from Spanish domination. He then joined the Masonry 路a nd received several letters from Dr. Rizal, but the local authorities became suspicious of Mr. Lopez' conduct that an order was issued to make a search of his home where said books and letters were discovered and seized as evidence against him. To avoid arrest! he took refuge in the house of Don Justo Guido! then a bookkeeper of "La Ins-tIlar" in Manila! and in 1892 when Dr. Rizal was deported to Dapitan, Mindanao, he took the s.s. Esmeralda which left for Hong-kong in July of same year. He lived in that British colony for eight months, and in 1893 he left for the United States of America, saw the 'World's Fair at Chicago, and stayed there for six months, after which he went to Paris and then to London, England_ While in England h e heard of the Philippine revolu tio n against Spain in 1896 and

he lost no time in issuing press statements which were released in various newspapers of London to enlighten the world of the truth about the social, economic and political conditio n~ th en obtaining in the Philippine I slands under the Spanish rul e .

In

Don

and minister ple nipotentiar y to " 'ashington, D. C., wrote a. letter to Don Sixto Lopez at London,

Englan d,

inviting the latter to join him in the Un iM r. Lopez in 1898 ted StaLeS. From London, Don Sixto Lopez went to \Vashington, D.C., where he met Don Felipe Agoncillo, and the two made efforts to contact the President an d the Secretary of State in their official capacities as representatives of the Philippine Revolu tionary Government with a view to seeking t he recognition of th~· Independence of the Philippine Is. lands, but they failed to have an audience. Together with Juan L una, the pain te r , Don Felipe Agoncillo and Don Sixto Lopez went to Paris, France, where thE' terms of the Treaty of Peace were then bei ng discussed by the representatives of the U nited States and Spain, and they tried to present t hei r objection tq' said t reaty and to make t heir d.emand for the r ecognition of the Filipino rlghts to become free and in dependent as a res~l t of the r evolut ion which t hey won agamst Spain. Being unsuccessfu l in t heir attE'rnpt at Paris, t hey returned to ~r ashington ~ .C., in. the early par t of 1899 in order ~ fll~ then' protest against t he approval of ~a ld treaty by the Congr ess of the United States. D.r. Jose Lozada, Antonio Ma. RegidoJ.", and Mariano Marti, an aide·de-camp to Gen.

erai Riego de Dios, were then in California as Philippine enyoys, but t he news of the hostilities between American and FiJipif10 forces reached them in time and they immp· diately left the United States for Canadian territory where Don Felipe went to meet them while Don Sixto Lopez returned to Emghnd where he continued his work as a Filipino propagandist. In 1899, however, an American antiImp eriali s ~ leader by the name of Fiske Warr en, who read much of Don Sixto Lopez' articl es in London papers, invited the 1atter to stay in the United States and paid his expenses whil e he was his guest at Boston, l\Iass. Don Sixto accepted the invitation and with his private secretary, Mr. Patterson, h~ resided in Boston where he continued his proPhilippin e independence activities under the ausp ices of his benefactor, Mr. Warren. In 1901, Don Sixto learned of the capt ure of General Aguinaldo and at the same time he heard of Apolinario Mabini's banishmen t t o Guam. He then sent Q. telegram to Mabini at Guam, informing the latter of the news of Aguinaldo's capture and oath of allegianc e to the United States and in viting him to go to Boston, but "irreconcilable" Mabini had lalready returned to the Philippines before t he telegram reached Guam. Later, Don Sixto r eceived words from his parents telling h im t ha t his brothers, Lorenzo, Cipriano and Ma nuel were imprisoned by the American military governor to induce him to return to Man ila . He immediately took the first stean:.ship that left for the Philippines, but when he an'ived at Hong-Kong he heard the news t hat he too was in danger of being anested, so he returned to the United States and from th er e he left for England. He came to Manila in 1903 but because he refused to take oath of allegiance t o the United &tates, he was deported two months after. In 1905, however, he heard of the Taft committee coming to the Philippines and he went ahead to Japan where he waited for said delegati on a'lld he took the same boat to Manila only to visit his mother, after wh ich he left for London again. Like General Artemio Ri· carte, Don Sixto refused to take oath of allegiance to the United States up to the present time, and he was permi tted to return
