The Chief - Justice of the United States bulks largely in the public eye because he is the head of the Supreme Court of the : Republic, although his authority is _ no greater tliah that of an Associate Justice, and every Justice has an equal voice in deciding every case before the Court. These nine Justices possess a poAVer greater than that of any Court or Legis lature or Council in the world. They can nullify an Act of Congress. They can abrogate a Treaty. They can over-rule Presidents and State Governments. They can confirm a death sentence or save from the gallows. They can destroy com merce or foster it. Their power is al most limitless, and touches ©very'activity of man. From their decision there is no . appeal.
