-I alncerely hope tha'. the contro
versy over tho recall amendment to
tbe constitution will be aettled by
the Supreme Court as soon as posal
i.io nalri W H 17'Uen Monday. "I
cannot aee that '.he recall Is Inopera
tive or not Bcirexecutlng as la con
tended by the Attorney-General In tne
Lincoln county caaes. The recall has
oeen uaed three tlmea, and the news
papers in, at least one case,, reported
Mr. Crawford a saying the amend
ment was aufflclent. Nothing waa
aald then about additional legislative
action being neceaaary.
"The recall waa used last June In
the case of Councilman Ellis In Port
land, and the eonatltutionality of the
meiidment waa not aertomly ques
tioned when recall proceedings were
Instituted against we Mayor oi u
land, who was retained. It was In tho
case of the proceedings against Judge
Cone, of Roseberg, that the newapap
ers quoted th Attorney-General as
saying the amendment waa aufflclnL"
The final opinion of the Attorney
General was given R. H. Howell, Coun
Clerk of Lincoln county, who asked
Information on the subject In connec
tion with a move In that county to
circulate recall petitions awlnst the
Comity Judge and one of the County
Commissioners. The question I)a4

office of the Attorney-General when
