ABOLITION OK TI1K JURt SYSTE
Judge George II. Williams, of fort

absurdities that are made part of the

.together too difficult to convict a criiui
nul, partly because of the abuse of the
jury system ; but mainly because of the
system of practice that does everything
,to conceal the truth, and enables the
.criminal's attorney, by interposition of
frivolous objection, to exclude testimony
tlint would throw light upon thecircuui
stances surrounding the commission of
Trial by jury was, as Judge 'Williams
.says, instituted for the purpose of pre
venting acts of oppression upon the
.common people by an arbitrary govern
ment and privileged classes, but we do
not agree with his conclusion that there
f i no longer danger of such oppression
even in the united Mates. The power
of money can be exerted more effect
ually upon a judiciary appointed tor life
or even upon a judge elected for a term of
years, than upon the general public It
jli within JudgeWilllams recollection that
the election of a Supreme Judge of the
iitate of Oregon hinged upon the prob-
.abledeciaion that would be rendered in
M certan case, and be doubtless remera
bers that the State chairmen of the two
great parties, both representing one side
of the cose, conspired ngainet Judge
Waldo to secure the election of Judj
,Ktralian. II we abmwoi) the jury
system and place our rights entirely in
,the hands of judge, whether elective or
appointive, it will make matters much
easier for the criminal tich, as it w:ll

the President of the United States is
making a gallant struggle. How mucl
cuance wouia me government stnnu in
the proiicution of the trusts if it had to
depend upon the judiciary alone? -
The judge cites the fact that since 1SS5
jtherehave been 131,051 murders and
Jiomicides and only 2296 executions,
and we suppose this is intended as an
argument agaiiift the jury system; but
it does not appear that this was allio
getuer the fault of the jury system.
The system of technicalities that have
become a part of criminal practice may
have bad ninch to do with it, In our
Recollection Oregon juries have not fail
ed to do their duty in murder cases,
and the cause for so many failures to
.convict is not properly placed upon our
juries. There are many cases where
juries might be dispenred with and the
right of challenge might be abridged ;
but we do not believe the people are
ready to abandon the system, or that
they would he benefited by sodoing.

It is a matter of pride to every citizen
of Oregon that Mr. P. A. Frakes, an old
