McGinn Tells Multnomah Delegation
Hetter Sjtem, Not More Jurists,
Is Circuit Court Need Per
- sonalifics Hamper Confab.
STATE CAPITOU iJalem. Or.. Jan. 21.
(Special.) Divided in opinion, the five
Judses of the Multnnmsh County State
Circuit Court tonight appeared before
the Multnomah County legislative dele
gation and discussed the needs of the
court to the necessity for two addi
The discuxolon of the subject was so
frtquently Interrupted by Intercnange
of personalities among the Judires, that
the legislators left the meeting with
not a very satisfactory understanding of
the actual situation respecting the court
and the seriousness of Its alleged con
Judges McGinn and Gater.s very posi
tively assured the delcgntlon any In
crease In the Multnomah County Judi
ciary was not required. The other three

and Kavanaugh. while refraining from
committing themselves definitely, clearly
favored provision being made for two
"It Is not an Incresse In the num
ber of Judges that Is required In
Multnomaa County," said Judge Mc
Ginn, the first to address the delega
tion, "but It Is a change In the rules
under which the business of the court
Is directed. From my experience of
less than a month on the bench. I have
discovered that the rules In vogue are
antiquated. For Instance, one Judge
makes up the pleadings and then as
signs the trial of the case to one of
the other Judges the very one who
should not try It. Tou may keep on
Increasing the number of Judges, but
until you have the rules of the court
changed things will keep on going
from bad to worse. Provide two ad
ditional Judges, and you will make me
a pensioner on the state."
Judge Gantenbeln argued the time
of the court was fully occupied and
that each judge was serving the
county faithfully. He said statistics
show that other Pacific Coast cities
have one judge for every 30.000 of
One for SO, 000 Here.
Portland has only one Judge to every
(0.000 of population.
Judge Gantenbeln further suggested
thst If the jurisdiction of the Justice
Court could be extended to Include cases
Involving 11000. the congestion of the
Circuit Court would be relieved ma
terially. This view was concurred In by
McGinn and Gat ens. It will not be sur
prising If some effort Is made by the
delegation toward enlarging the field of
the Justtce Court as a solution to the
present problem of providing for two ad
ditional ilooO-a-year Circuit Judges.
Only by limiting the right of appeal
or by forcing cases to trial to the Incon
venience and expense of litigants, argued
Judge Morrow, could the present condi
tions In the Circuit Court be relieved.
Judge Gtatens explained that two years
ago. when he went on the bench, he pro
posed revising the rules of the court to
the other four judges, of whom Morrow
and Gantenbeln were twq, but the pro
posal aae turned down flatly. He In,
rlited that the rules should not only be
amended so as to permit the exp-dltlnus
trial of esses, but agreed with McGinn
and Kavanaugh. who followed him. that
the work of the Justice Court should be
enlarged to tske In cases Involving
greater property values.
Tilts Are Numerous.
Wordy tilts between McGinn and Gan
tenbeln or Morrow and betmeen Gatens
and both Mororw and Gantenbeln en
livened what otherwise would have
proved a monotonous" hearing.
Judge McGinn and Attorney Ralph R.
Punlwny also exchanged a few personal
compliments, provoked by the ruling
ax-alnsi Dunlway by McGinn In the
Proadway bridge rase. For a time Pres
ident Selling, vf the Stale Senate, who
presided, had difficulty In maintaining
Charles J. Schnabel. president of the
Multnomah Bar Association, furnished
the delegation with statistics in favor
of the- Increased Judiciary, showing that
there frti pending befofe the Circuit
Court today a greater number of cases
awaiting trial than there were at the
same time two years ago.
The delegation adjourned without tak
ing any action.
