Jude

an Evangeliad (1850) is an attempt at a ‘Unitarian epic,’ and he published another novel similar in character to Margaret. Jude, THE EPISTLE of, one of the shortest of the New Testament books, Fo to have been written by "Jude (Judas), the brother of James' (yer. 1); he would thus be one of the “brethren of the Lord' (Gal. 1:19; Matt: 13:55). The letter is addressed to Christian saints in general, and is mainly compo of warnings †. alse teachers. Its single chapter, both in substance and in language, bears, a remarkable similarity to 2 Peter, especially ch. 2:1–19; and scholars generally incline, to regard the latter as the derivative document, though Spitta, Zahn, and others hold the reverse view. The epistle also reveals many assonances with the Book of Enoch. Many recent critics, arguing from the contents of the book, see in Jude aPoo": work of the late 2d century.

In our legal system, the presiding officer of a court of justice. As the administration of justice involves the determination th of questions of law and of fact, the same person or grou of persons may perform bot functions, or the two may be separated, questions of law being decided by one man or set of men and questions, of fact, in whole or in part, , by another. The former practice was followed in the Greek and Roman systems of jurisprudence and still obtains, with some modifications, in the modern systems of the Continent and of Spanish America which are derived from the Roman law. Such persons, however numerous they may be, are known as judges. The separation of the two functions of determining law, and fact in the English and American jurisprudence has resulted in vesting the latter in a separate branch of the court known as the jury, the title ‘judge’ being confined to the member or members of the court to whom is committed the decision of questions of law. Many questions of fact, however are even in our system decided by the judges. The great power and divinity of the judicial office are recognized in the care exercised in every civilized country to secure fit men to perform its duties. Judges are in Great Britain and the United States almost invariably selected from the legal profession and are protected by the bar in the exercise of their high office. In many other countries the judiciary consti

tutes a separate profession, its members being specially trained for the performance of judicial duties. Formerly in Europe, as is still the case in some oriental states, the king or chief administered justice in person. As the “fountain of iustice’ he still a points the officers who are to administer the law in his stead. In England the actual power of appointing minor judicial officers, such as county_court judges, is vested in the Lord Chancellor, who is himself appointed by the Crown on the recommendation of the government for the time being: The judges of the High Court of Justice are appointed by royal patent. In this count e practice of filling the judicial office varies. The logo. of the United States Supreme Court and of the circuit and district, courts, are appointed by the President subject to confirmation by the Senate. In some of the states all judges of record are appointed by the governor, whereas in many, if not most, of them all judges of whatever degree are elected by the o In the federal system and in some of the states judges hold office for life, but in most states for a fixed term of years. The modern tendency is to give all the higher judges a long tenure of office and to render them entirely independent of partisan olitics. In the Unit States judges are removable by impeachment and, in some if not all of the states, by vote of the legislature. See CHANCELLoR; Courts. Judge, WILLIAM QUAN (1851– 96), Irish-American theosophist, born in Dublin. As a child he was taught theosophy. He came to the § S., when 13 years old, was admitted to the bar in N. Y., 1872, and practised for 2 years. With Mme. Blavatsky and H. S. Olcott he founded the Theosophical Society of America, and was

Judge Advocate, the prosecutor of a general or garrison courtmartial or a military commission, detailed and published as such in the U.S. army in the order constituting the court, usually from the line of the army, but in cases of the trial of officers of high rank or other trials of special importance, from among the officers of the Koi..." staff of the Judge

A bureau of military justice of the War Department headed by the Judge Advocate General with rank of brigadier-general and consisting of two Judge Advocates with rank of colonel, three with rank of iieutenant-colonel and six with rank of major. In addition to these É. anent officers, a certain numr of others are detailed from the line for this duty to transact the business at the central office at the War Department, and one at the headquarters of each territorial department. The Judge Advocate General is the custodian of all records of trials or inquiries, by military courts or commissions, and of all H.P...? relating to lands under control of the War Department such as public lands, military reservations, parks, etc. When called upon to do so by proper authority, the officers of this department explain the law and give opinions upon legal uestions, being law officers of the War Department as far as concerns military law.

Judges, THE Book of, purports to narrate the history of Israel from the death of Joshua till the time of Samuel. After an introduction (ch. 1-3:4), giving an account of the subjugation of Canaan differing from that in the Book of Joshua (see, Josh UA); it ives the histories of the several judges' in their long-protracted struggle with internal or external foes—viz. Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar, Deborah (with Barak), Gideon (with Abimelech's usurpation), Tola, Jair, Jephthah, Ibzan,

lon, Abdon, and Samson (ch. 3:5–16). Ch. 17–20 form a sort of appendix treating of two, sinister episodes of the period. The book shows a relatively simple structure; the history of the earlier judges is largely cast according Judges' Cave

to the following recurrent cycle

of events:–Israel sins, is given over to the enemy, and sort op. ressed for a period; is then deivered by the particular judge, and has rest for o forty years. Parts of the k, notably the song of Deborah (ch. 5), are undoubtedly very ancient; and the compiler, writing, after the captivity of the ten tribes $'; 18: 30), seems to have availed himself of written sources throughout, though how far such sources can be identified with the various strata of the Pentateuch (see HEXATEUCH) is a moot point.

Judgment, in cholo is the mental act by o which a predicate is affirmed or denied of a subject; in logic, the affirmation or denial itself, which, as expressed in language, is called a proposition. Judgment, so defined is the unit of all thought, for definite thinking is made up of judgments, and short of judgment there can be neither trut nor falsity. An idea is in itself neither true nor false; it becomes so only as referred implicitly or explicitly, to a subject. Consequently the judgment is the true o in logic, although it has been the more usual practice of the text-books to start with the concept. . The fundamental nature and significance of judgment or predication– ‘the import of propositions,’ as it is sometimes phrased—has been one of the standing problems of logic, and leads into equally difficult problems of metaphysicse.g. the controversies of nominalists, conceptualists, and realists in mediaeval philosophy. For the best modern opinion, see Bosanquet's Logic, vol. i.

Judgment. The judicial determination of a cause by a court of justice. Such determination may settle, conclusively all the issues involved in an action, in which case it is denominated a final judgment; or it may settle some of the issues raised, leaving one or more unsettled, or may determine the issues between the parties, leaving the extent or nature of the remedy undetermined, when it is known as an interlocutory judgment. The judgment is the final act of the court in a cause, the enforcement of a

- 30

judgment by execution being an administrative and not a §§ proceeding. , Excepting in criminal cases judgment is seldom formally pronounced by the court in modern procedure, the more usual practice being the filing with the clerk of the court of what is known as the judgment roll and the ‘entry’ of the judgment on the records of the court. It should contain the title of the cause, including the names of all the parties, a brief recital of the trial or other disposition of the action, and the judicial , determination, of the issues. Such entry, or 'docketing’ of a judgment makes it a lien in most states on the real property of the judgment debtor. When paid, a judgment is said to be satisfied. If the judgment debtor desires to have the lien released during the pendency of an appeal he may generally obtain an order to this effect on giving a bond to secure the R. of the judgment. See APPEAL; DECREE.

Judgment, THE LAST, in Christian theology, the final determination of the destinies of men, to be made at the last day. In the Old Testament, the ‘day of Jahweh’ was awaited as the time of Israel's salvation, but in the mouth of Amos (5:18 f.) it becomes a day of judgment, which will sift even the chosen nation, and "...i. to destruction all that is unworthy. After the exile, the hope of a glorified and triumphant Israel £olly gave way before the idea of a kingdom of heaven to be established upon the earth, and ushered in by a

eat catastrophe. . When the

:lief in a personal resurrection had been fully developed, as in New Testament times, we find Jesus represented as speaking of a tremendous crisis, both for the world and for individuals, which

"is to take place at the end of the

age, when He will return, and bring the living and the dead before Him for final arbitrament. There seems little doubt that this transaction is represented in Scripture as an event—the day of judgment. But, on the other hand, it is manifest from several passages ohn 3:18 ft.; 12:31) that the estinies of men, are being fixed even now, and that death closes their account; in which case one naturally asks, what is left for the day of jo to decide. Again, it is not false to Scripture to recognize that a subject like this is spoken of in highly figurative terms: compare Peter's interretation of Joel's ‘day of the

rd’ (Joel 2:2 f., 28 f., and Acts 2:16 f.). Whatever the solution may be, it is the Christian belief that Christ is to be the principal of the last judgment (Rom. 14:10; 2 Cor. 5:10), and that men's ultimate fate will be determined by

The successive enactments of the years 1873–1881, by which the judicial system of England was reformed. rior to that legislation justice had for many hundreds of years been administered by a great number of independent tribunals of diverse origin, some of which exercised a concurrent, jurisdiction and some a jurisdiction which differed in spirit and in procedure from that exercised by others. The most important of these earlier courts were the courts of King's Bench, of Common Pleas, and of Exchequer the High Court of Chancery, the Aims.si. Court, the Court of Probate and for fivorce and Matrimoniai Causes, the last two of which were derived from the older ecclesiastical tribunals. All of these were merged by the acts in question in one great court, known as the ‘Supreme Court of Judicature,’ to sit in two permanent divisions— the High Court of Justice and the Court of Appeal. The supreme judicial functions of the House of rds and the Priyy Council were not interfered with. The further #. changes effected by the Judicature Acts were (1), the consolidation of law and o jurisdiction and (2) the inji cation of procedure.

Judith, THE Book of, one of the jiā’ī’estament Apocrypha. It records how Holofernes, at the head of 132,000 troops, had been commissioned by Nebuchadnezzar to take vengeance on the countries, including , Judaea, which had not aided the king in the war against the Medes; and how, while he was besieging Bethulia Judith, a Jewish, widow, gained access to him by her beauty, and, having drugged him with wine, cut off his head—a deed which emboldened the Jews to fall upon the leaderless Assyrians, who were routed with immense slaughter. The story can have no possible historical setting, and is either simply a tradition of obscure origin, or a kind of allegory designed to show forth the great No. triumph. The work probably originated in the 1st century B.C. It contains numer; ous parallels with the books of

the Maccabees, and is referred to by Clement of Rome (Ad. Cor. i. : It seems to have been originally written in Hebrew; Jerome states that his translation was made from a Chaldaean text; but it is probable that the Septuagint version is older than any of the Hebrew recensions now extant. As a work of literary art Judith takes high rank, but its religious atmosphere is that of the legalism and the bigoted nationalism characteristic of the closing centuries before Christ.

The source of the poem is certain chapters (especially xiii-xv.). in the apocryphal Book of Judith. The date of composition seems hopelessly disputable.

Apart from this danger, a wound of the jugular vein is usually of minor importance.
