Circuit Judge J. U. Campbell, of

ment on tho demurrers in the cases
brought by Justices Bell and Olson
Involving their claims for payment of
salary and the offseta claimed by
Multnomah county for marriage fees,
which tho county contends should Be
turned Into the county treasury.
When the question waa presented to
Presiding Judge Catena in Portland
for assignment to one of the circuit
Judges there for hearing, none was
inin n -hoar It axceDt Judge Mc
Ginn and the attorneye for Hell and
Olson did not wish to have tne Hear
ing in hla department. Judge Mo
Glnn Is the only one of the Judges
who has declined to accept any fees
for himself for performing marriage
While the present suit involves the
salary enly of the two Justices, It haa
a much wider-aspect Nearly all of
it., niroi.lt- ttiita-aa In tha state have
accepted fees for performing marriage
ceremonlea, as wen as jusu wi ma
peace. According to one theory, all
of these Judges are liable to indict
ment and to civil aulta for recovery
of the money. Some lawyers contend
that tho county la not entitled to tho
tees, but that bridegrooms are en
titled to have their $5 gold pieces re
turned. ' . ,
