JURISTS OPPOSE REQUEST
Selection of Head for Domestic Re
lation Court Stirs Courthouse
TVill the press gain admittance to the
Inner councils of the seven judges of
Multnomah county's circuit court on
Thursday, when court will adjourn for
the day to permit the legal minds to
concentrate on the task of selecting
the names of three men from which
Governor Olcott may pick the new
Judge for the court of domestic rela
tions. The question is agitating court cir
cles considerably this week, the agita
tion being due chiefly to the demands
of the press for entrance and the stern
refusal of the majority of the judges.
There is something to be said for
fcoth sides in the issue. The press in
sists that without its presence during
the august deliberations eomething
might be slipped over on the dear peo
ple, such as the choice of one quali
fied man and two obviously unquali
fied, insuring the gubernatorial selec
tion of the one desired.
But Judges Morrow. Tucker, Staple-
ton and Kavanaugh thus far maintain
the press has no right to set foot in
side the portals during the process of
eelection. Judge Morrow is very em
phatic about it, avowing that it is no
body's affair what men he votes for
and that he is going to demand a secret
fcallot even among the judges.
All Not Opposed.
Judges Gantenbein, Gatens and Taz
"well lend a more favorable ear to the
plea of the press.
"We don't care who knows our
eholce," the declares. "We are willing
to lay the cards on the table."
The attitude of the press may boil
iflown to a desire to be where something
is doing on a day when ail courts will
be closed, but representatives of the
newspapers maintain they are fighting
"Doggonit," they say, "the public
ought to know how this decision is
reached; whether it is all slated before
hand, or whether the choice is made as
the upehot of a regular argument in
which the merits of various candidates
re ruthlessly dissected."
Then they throw some dirt.
"It wouldn't surprise us a bit," they
ay, "if one of these here judges has
promised half the women's organiza
tions and civic clubs in the city that
lie would vote for their favorites, and
- doesn't want it to get out just who he
does stand up for."
Judge Tucker Talks.
"But, gentlemen, you really would
tiot care to embarrass us by being
there while we are discussing these
candidates, would you?" asks Judge
Tucker in a brotherly sort of way.
"You know we may get very personal
In our remarks, and while we know
you would not publish those things,
still think how embarrassing it would
be to us. I am afraid that several
would not care to talk freely in the
presence of outsiders when a name was
mentioned. I really think this is the
sort of thing that the judges ought
to settle all by themselves."
"The upshot of the matter may be,"
pointed out Judge Kaxanaugh yester
day, "that if the judges are compelled
to invite the press to their meeting on
Thursday they may decide to get to
gether and make their real selection
before than and merely meet as a for
mality." Knowing of a few differences of
opinion existing, the press fights on in
the hope that those differences coulc
Jiever be reconciled in the short time
left before Thursday, even if all the
judges could bet together and talk
things over before then. And getting
tall the judges to meet together is a
difficult matter, as Presiding Judge
Stapleton will testify.

ARMENIA IN SAD PLIGHT
Distress and Want Told In Letter
LONDOX. (Correspondence of the
Associated Press) "The sights one sees
in Armenia are almost beyond belief,
and the tales one hears are too hastly
tobe inventions." ,
This is an extra from a letter an
Armenian medical officer, writing from
the base of Mount Arara, to a fellow
countryman in London. The letter says:
"It may interest you to know of the
awful state of distress existing in the
country here. Thousands of people are
homeless and absolutely destitute. In
the town of Krvian alone there are 35,
000 refugees. Their country has been
ravaged, the house burned, and the sur
vivors who escaped with their lives
have nothing, but the rags they are
."I have been sent down here to In
quire into an epidemic of typhus among
the native population. It is as serious
as it was reported to be.
"For months, the people have been
cut off from all communication with
the outside world, with the exception
of a small area round Erlvan. The
whole country has been overrun by its
enemies. There are no supplies of any
kind and the population is on the verge
of starvation, many already having died
Schooner Casco, Once Home of Rob
ert Louis Stevenson,' Carries
Party to Alaska.
SATf FRANCISCO. There sailed out
of San Francisco bay a few days ago
a little company of 30 men whose ship
now is pointing toward the Arctic seas.
Gold is the age old lure which inspired
this adventure, which means cold and
loneliness and discomfort. Possibly
hunger and death.
The schooner Casco is the vessel
which is bearing the treasure seekers
northward and in her cabin Robert
Louis Stevenson once rote many a ro
mance which these modern argonauts
are likely to parallel. The ship's com
pany includes men who have delver
in the earth in all parts of the world.
On them will devolve the operations
required In mining. Men who have sail
ed the seven seas are on board, and
they will see to the navigation. Then
there are men who have been success
ful bankers and business men. To
several of the latter, rated ell fixed in
the matter of worldly goods, the ad
venture impelled rather than any pros
pect of financial return. But all thirty
are share holders in the Northern Min
ing and Trading company.
It is another story of a search for
a rich mining area where gold nuggest
may be picked off the surface of the
earth and where the ledges are in
crusted with the precious ore. The
location is a secret.
L.S. McGirk a mining engineer, who
has worked in the earth from Panama
to Nome, is at the head of the party.
His office is the musty little cabin in
which Stevenson worked. The bat
tered old desk on which Stevenson
wrote still is in the cabin, splotched by
ink stains from his pen.
It is reported the adventure that led
to the new voyage of the Casco was
thrust on the man that found untold
wealth in the Arctic, hen he and other
members of the crew of a poaching
sealer were chased by a Japanese
cutter, and their small boat was wreck
He was starving when natives found
him. But he forgot his hunger as his
eyes rested on gold that fairly seeped
through the earth. Without equipment,
he says, he returned to civilization ith
gold worth thousands of dollars.
McGirk and others heard the story.
Adventurers banded together. each
providing his share of the estimated
expenses. Some of the thirty sold all
they had to get money for the venture.
Others like Albin Johnson, secretary
f the corporation, and Emanuel John
son the vice-president, had found much
gold in Alaska and are rich enough
to buy a dozen mines.
More than COO, McGirk says, had the
money and the desire to go. But no man
was chosen unless -he knew something
of mining. Captain C. L. Oliver, the
navigator, is not so much a miner as
a seaman. Lieutenant Corbett Bland,
who has been stationed at the Presidio
for two -years, is one of the thirty.
Then there Is "Pat."- Pat is a dog
of the north, possibly a Russian olf
hound. He as picked tip at the city
pound. His great grandparents track
ed through the snow of the Arctic.
