CM BEAR WEAPONS
EED OP DEFENSE SANCTIONED
BY TWO JURIES.
Attacks on Strikebreakers In Vicin
ity of Alblna Shops Are Ba
als of Investigation.
Holding the right of self-defense
above a city ordinance, two Jurtea in
Municipal Court yesterday refused to
recommend punishment for strike
breakers arrested for carrying con
cealed weapons, even after the court
bad refused to allow testimony that
the weapon-carriers were In fear of
their lives. The court held that-Vhe
language of the ordinance did not ad
mit the qualification, but enough of the
circumstances leaked out In the course
of the hearing to swing the opinions
of the Jurors.
In both cases attorneys for the de
fense offered to show that employes of
the railroad company were being pur
sued, threatened and beaten with reg
ularity, and argued that under such
circumstances, police protection being
In.uftlclent. the men were acting under
their constitutional privilege when
they carried weapons. The court held
that If It were shown thst protection
had been demanded from the police
and denied, this evidence might be con
sidered, but not otherwise.
Herman Lansxus, a blacksmith at the
Brooklyn shops. arrested Baturday
night at East Water and East Morri
son streets by Patrolman Leavens, and
found to be carrying a loaded revolver
rolled up In his overcoat, was tried
first. He started to tell of being fol
lowed by three men when on a visit
downtown, but was checked by the
court. A Jury, consisting of W. L, Page.
Donald J. Smith and U J. Hicks, re
turned a verdict of guilty and recom
mended him to the mercy of the court.
Ho was given a suspended sentonce.
Luka Clutuk told of being chased
onto the Alblna ferry, where a gang
choked and struck him. No weapon
was found on him. but a revolver waa
discovered by Patrolman Brothers con
cealed on the boat. A Jury, consisting
of H. E. Joy. M. J. Clohessy, W. G.
Steel. J. If. Murphy and David Stearna,
found him not guilty.

COURTS ARE IDLING
Circuit Bench Judge Scores
Presiding Jurist System
as Criminal Waste.
PAY TAKEN AS UNEARNED
Occupant of Bench Saji Ho Passes
Days With XoUUng to Do, Ow
ing to Poor Assignment of
Cases Change Urged.
Tired of sitting around often a full
day at a time without anything to do,
Judge McGinn haa advocated procedure
which would abolish the presiding
Judge system among tbs Circuit Judges
of Multnomah County.
The Judge emerged from the office of
the County Auditor yesterday with his
salary warrant for last month In his
band and announced that really ha felt
ashamed to have It cashed.
"The system around here Is wrong."
he declared. "It ought not to be that a
Judge should sit without anything to
do for a large part of a day simply
because he has disposed quickly of the
cases assigned to him. Need more
JudgesT Well. I should say not. Why.

"I come down here In the morning at
o'clock and am ready to work stead
ily from until 11 and from 2 to S In
the afternoon, or even a little later If
need be. Why. sometimes I have been
Idle as long as two day at a time. The
Irony of It Is that I am really much
happier when I am working. The sys
tem we have of assigning cases Is at
"The solution of the difficulty Is the
abolition of the presiding Judge system.
Let the County Clerk assign the cases
to the dockets of each Individual Judge
as they come In, and let us get busy and
grind them out as fast as they are
reached on the dockets. The attor
neys ought to be able to keep track of
the time their cases are coming up.
and when they do the lawyers should
be here and proceed to trial. If they
don't show up. the cases should go to
the bottom of the docket automatically.
The courts should be operated for the
convenience of the public, and not -for
the convenience of the legal fraternity."
System Deemed at Fault.
Judge McGinn disposed of three minor
cases In short order yesterday, but was
forced to remain Idle for the remain
der of the day because there was noth
ing mora on the calendar for hi in. In
the meantime the complaint Is general
that the Judges are not keeping up with
"Every Judge ought to look after the
ex parte motions In connection with his
own cases." said Judge McGinn. "Who
Is In a position to give Intelligent Judg
ment on such subjects mere than he?
A case In which there have been de
murrers and dilatory motions of various
kinds comes before a Judge for trial.
Wouldn't that Judge be In a much bet
ter position bad he handled the case
from the start? This presiding Judge
system Is theoretical and not practical."
Judge Oatens Is In sympathy with
Judge McGinn's views relative to the
abolition of the presiding Judge sys
tem. He sought to have It abolished
last year, but was unsuccessful.

Why. I Lost
Reasons "Wiy Thousands LIk M"
Cannot .Satisfy Their Employers.
I believe my fate Is not nnllka that
of thousands of other workers who
dally lose their places for reasons tney
do not know, and probably would not
believe. When their last pay envelope
comes alongt It Is usually, "JT ""J
Ices no longer required." If the truth
were known, the reason for their un
ceremonious removal would probably
be that their usefulness was destroyed
because of some mental worry, bodily
ailment or general Indisposition. These
things, as we all know, are the most
fruitful oauses of failure In all walks
of Ufa. The battle of Waterloo was
lost because of a headache. In this
quick age our minds must be clear,
rapid, active and free from outside in
fluence or worry. oiele we go down
to failure with the throng of "floaters
who gs from one place of employment
to another, giving no satisfaction to
others or to themselves, constantly
growing older and less useful, with no
ambition, no will power, and no hope.
Every man requires from every other
man the best that is In him. But no
man can use or get the best that is In
himself until he Is first free from all
fretful lndleposltlons and worrlss.
That was my trouble. I was full of
troubles. That's why I lost my Job.
My stomach In the first place was al
ways out of order, and I was worry
ing about It and my mind grew cloudy,
and alow. I made mistakes and grew
grouchy. That was tho nnC.
