appellant, against F. I. Dunbar. Secretary
of State, respondent. This was a suit to
enjoin the Secretary of State from plac
ing on the official ballot in its present
form, the title of the local option bill
submitted by initiative petition for a
vote of the people in June. Judge Gal
loway sustained a demurrer to the com
plaint on the ground that the court had.
no jurisdiction of the subject-matter or
The opinion, which is delivered by the
entire bench, adheres to the rule laid
down by the higher courts and. judicial
authorities that"the court has no juris
diction In matters of a political nature,
nor to interfere with the duties of any
department of government, unless under
special circumstances and when neces
sary to the protection of the rights of
property, nor in matters merely criml
nal. or merely immoral, which do not
affect any right of property." Several
authorities are cited, among others the
holding of this court in the case of the
State of Oregon ex. rel. vs. Lrfrd, 28 Ore
gon 49S. which is again adhered to.
C. M. Van Pelt, attorney for the
Anti-Saloon League, issued the fotlow-
ing statement of the issues in the case:
Under the initiative the liquor men have
prepared and 4-ubmltted to the people
amendment to the local option law. The law
gives the parties so submitting a measure
the right to file with the Secretary of State
a title for such measure, to be printed upon
the offlrial ballot. The law also requires that
such ballot title t--hatl not exceed 20 words
and that It shall be descriptive of the meas
ure to which it refers. The liquor men filed
as their title to their amendment to the local
option law these words: "For amendment to
the local option law, giving anti-Prohibition
lsts and Prohibitionists equal privileges."
A suit was brought in the Marion County
Circuit Court to enjoin and restrain the Sec
retary of State from certifying to be printed
on the official, ballot that part of said title
whicn reads, "giving an ti-Prohibitionists and
Prohibition iete equal privileges."
The parties urging the suit held- that to
prim, the above quoted words on the official
ballot would be illegal for the three followin;
First Because they do not describe the
amendment in any such sen1 as the law con
templates and requires; that they do not
describe the subject-matter oC the proposed
amendment' or a single provision thereof; that
they do not describe what the amendment is
but what, in the opinion of the liquor men.
It does, what its effect will be.
Second Because said words are an argu
ment in favor of their proposed amendment
which th liquor men demand to have print'
ed on the official ballot under the guise of i
description cf their measure ; that they have
no more right to thrust a printed argument
In favor of their measure under the very eyes
of the voter in the voting booth than they
would have to enter there and -force an oral
argument upon him.
Third Because said words are a conclusion
concerning the effect of the proposed amend
ment drawn not by the voter but for the
voter by the liquor men; that no man or or
ganization has any right to draw any uch
conclusion ror the vote-, much iees to press
It upon him at the last moment on the very
face of his ballot.
Therefore, It was contended that the word
objected to, if printed on the official ballot.
would unduly and unlawfully Influence and
mislead many of the electors of the state
and prevent a full, true and intelligent ex
press Ion of the will of the people at the po!
touching the propnsed amendment.
The parties representing the liquor men
maintained that the Injunction suit was an
attempt- to have the judicial
the legislative branch of the government, and
that the court was, therefore, without any
jurisdiction in the matter. The Circuit Court
sustained the contention of the liquor men
and dismlfsed the case.
The Supreme Court, on appeal, affirmed the
lower coun. holding- that the matter is pure
ly political In Its nature and that the court
had no jurisdiction to bear and. pass upon
the questions involved.
The courts, therefore, have not passed
upon the merits of the case. They have
neither said that the proposed ballot title to
the liquor men's amendment to the local op
tion law is legal and right or illegal and
wrong. They have simply paid that they
have no jurisdiction to hear and decide the
matter one way or the other. The case must,
therefore, be tried before that highest court
of all, the people, and by them decided at
the poll on' June 4, 2906. .

FOURTH AVENUE ESSENTIAL
HARRIMAX WANTS THIS
TKAXCE TO SEATTLE.
Hill Interests Will Make Bitter Fight
Before Making Room on
SEATTLE. Wash., May 3. (Special.)
If Edward H. HaiTlman considers Fourth
avenue necessary to his entrance into
Seattle with passenger trains, he will
have to stand on the outskirts and loon
into the city or win his point through a
bitter fight with the Hill interests. The
Hill roads will not agree to give up
Fourth avenue and that is what Mr.
Harriman meant he had to have when he
told this city that he would not come
here unless he could enter on the same
basis as the older lines.
Fourth avenue runs on an even grade
from the southern limits of the city
straight by the Harriman depot site. A
slight curvature In the tracks up Fourth
avenue would let the Harriman line into
its passenger grounds without any incon
venience. When William Hood, chief en
gineer for the Southern Pacific, looked
over the field, railroad men nave tne
story that he made just two notes. They
were: 'Seattle: Fourth avenue. Ana
Harriman. interpreting, reads It: "Seattle
If Fourth avenue." Neither Hood nor
Harriman is yet in a mood to concede
there Is any other way of reaching the
passenger grounds save over Fourth.
Of course, Harriman might purchase or
condemn a right of way east of Fourtli
avenue and reach his depot grounds.
When that was suggested to him here he
declared he had no intention of trying it.
He has had so much experience here
with real estate speculators and has
found such a good echo at Tacoma that
the idea of buying good property on
Fuget Sound gives him all the symptoms
of nervous prostration.
The Hill lines want Harriman to use
Oriental avenue, a street paralleling
Fourth and about 150 feet to the west.
Hill owns the property at the north end
of Oriental avenue that Harriman would
have to buy to make a turn-out and
crossing of Fourth to reach his property.
In fact. Hill owns land just south of the

KOAD TO COVE IS HELD IP
Farmer John Allen Demands Large
Sum for Tract.
I.A GRANDE, Or., May 3. Special.)
Trouble in securing right of way Is
the snag that is impeding the progress
of the Central Railway toward Cove.
The railroad company has put the bur
den of securing right of way on the
people of Cove, on what is said to have
been a promise to that effect. The rail
road ultimatum is "no right of way,
no road." .
A prominent resident of Cove says
that right of way had been promised
on the survey as at first made, but
since then the line has been changed
.-o as to take up about three acres of
land from Farmer John Allen and
Farmtr John Allen wants J1000. This
NEURALGIA AND AN-eEMIA ARE.
CURED BY PINK PILLS. j
Showing th Powr of this Wonderful1
Prescription Over the Blood
For nearly a generation the people of
this country have known Dr. WilliRms.
Pink Pills, during -which time proof of
thousands of cures by this remedy has
been published and confirmed and not
one person has been harmed in the slight
est degree by their use. The pills con
tain no opiate, narcotio or stimulant,
nor any drug which could injure the
most delicate constitution.
Two oases in one family is a creditable)
showing as to the efficacy of Dr. Wil
liams' Pink Pills in disorders of the
blood and nerres and the following cases
may easily be investigated by the in
"Kor over a year," says Mies Charlotte
Yan Salisbury, of Castletou, N T., " I
suffered from neuralgia and palpitation'
of the heart. My skin was pale and sal
low and I was troubled with dizziness.;
i fainting spells and fits of indigestion. I
was very nervous and would start at the:
lightest sound. At times a great weak-j
uess would cotne over me and ou one oc-4
j casion my limbs gave way under me and1
I fell to the sidewalk.
' Of course I was treated by our local'
physicians and also consulted a noted
doctor at Albany, out nooning tney gav
me seemed to benefit me. One day I
read in a newspaper about Dr. Williams
Piuk Pills for Pale People and I imme
diately gave them a trial. I soon fel
much better and my color had begun to
return. I continued using the pills and
by the time I had taken eight boxes I
was entirely cured. 1
" My sister, Sarah Van Salisbury, suf
fered terribly from anaemia. She was
pale and thin and we feared that she
would become a victim of consumption.
8he tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People and in a short time she be
gan to gain in strength and weights
She is now strong and well and we both
heartily recommend Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills to all who are in ill health."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by all
druggists or sent, postpaid, ou receipt
of price, 50 cents pr box, six boxes for
$2 50 by the Dr. Williams Medicine Co.,
Schenectady, N.Y. ' Descriptive pam
phlets free on request. ;
Is something more than the Covo peo
ple had figured on.
The Cove people, cannot bring con
demnation proceedings against Farm
er John Allen to get his land at a reas
onable price, because they are not
the parties who are building the rail
road. The railroad people do not want
to begin proceedings of this kind, for
they fear that this will establish a
precedent and that others will then
ask the same price that may be award
ed John Allen.
Contracts for Work Are Let.
TACOMA, Wash., May 3. (Special.)
President Earling. of th St. Paul

the section between Tacoma and Sum

tory as a market for the common lumber
of the North Pacific Coast. The avowed
purpose of the St. Paul Is to make it
possible for Coast lumbermen to reach
this market, which they are not now
able to do. It is certain that the comple
