Judges, Ovverule Motion of Con
iestant Demanding Governor
Post $20,000 Bond.
SALEM, Or., July 27.r-(Spectal.)
Trial of the election contest pro
ceedings Tiled recently on behalf of
Charles Hall, defeated candidate for
the republican domination for gov
ernor at the primary contests last
May, will start in the Marion county
circuit court here next Monday, ac
cording to a tentative' agreement
reached tonight- Attorneys intimat
ed that not less than two months
will be required to take the testi
mony based on the issues now be
fore the court.
Governor Olcott, named as con
testee in the suit, won the second
round in the legal battle today,
when Judges Bing-ham and Kelly,
sitting en banc, overruled a motion
submitted by the contestant's at
torneys in which they asked that
the contestee's answer to Mr. Hall's
original complaint be eliminated
from the records unless he posted a
bond in the amount of J20.000.
Bond Argument Made.
W. S. TJ'Ren of counsel for the
contestant, argued that his client
was required to post such a bond
at the time the original proceedings
were filed, and that there was no
good reason why the contestee
should not be compelled to file a
similar bond. It was the contention
of Mr. U'Ren that Governor Oleott's
answer to the complaint in reality
was a counter-action, in that it
brought to light new issues and its
language was not confined to a
denial or explanation of the charges.
As a result of raising new issues,
Attorney U'Pen declared that the
governor's answer should be con
sidered a counter-action and that
he should' be made to comply with
the statutes with relation to post
ing a bond.
Judge Bingham said that it was
his opinion that Governor Olcott
simply ,was attempting to meet the
issues, in that he was the person
attacked. It was Judge Bingham's
contention- that the governor's an
swer was legitimate and that he
could not be required under the
statute to post a bond.
Judge Kelly declared that the
law provides that the contestant
shall file a bond, but that the
statute is silent with relation to
Klttht Denied Governor.
"In this case," said Judsre Kellv.
"Governor Olcott is the only person
in Oregon having the qualifications
of a voter who is denied by law the
right to contest this election. He
is not contesting the rights of the
contestant, but appears in the role
of a defendant..His answer Is purely
defensive and in my opinion is not
a counter action.
The court took under advisement
until Monday mprnlng the request of
the contestant's attorneys that they
be allowed to amend their original
complaint. In this motion the con.
testant set out that recent Invent!
gations had indicated Irregularities
in counting the votes for governor
at the primary election in mor than
800 preoincta in the state In addition
to those specified in the orliHnnl

According to the attorneys rep're
senting Hall, "certain priests and
other officers of the Roman Catholic
church, and of the parishes of said
church, which included said pre
etfncts, did privately, secretly and
otherwise than by public speech
and public print, by undue influence
and corrupt practices," urge voters
to support Olcott and not Hall. This
campaigning was of such wide scope
"and so permeated the entire vote
cast in each of said precincts, that
they vitiated and invalidated the
entire nominating election in said
precincts for the republican nomina
tion for governor."
Complaint likewise is made by the
Hall interests that election boards
in many counties "erroneously

Sheriff C. E. TerriU of Jackson
county will be held on Saturday as
contemplated, Circuit Judge Calkins
today having refused to issue . an
injunction to stay the election as
sought by friends of the sheriff.
D. M. Lowe of Medford is the recall
While the recall committee stout
ly maintain that they are seeking
to oust Sheriff Terrill because he has
failed to enforce the laws, particu
larly the prohibition laws, friends
of the sheriff told that the recall
is simply an attempt on the part
of the Ku Klux Klan to obtain con
trol of the law enforcement bodies
of Jackson county. Refusal of
Judge Calkins to stay the election
has resulted in the citizens' com
mittee formed to combat the Klan
inaugurating a whirlwind campaign
in an effort to retain Sheriff Terrill
in office. T
At the same time the recall com
mittee is not asleep and as a re
sult it is expected that an ex
ceptionally heavy vote will be cast
in the election.
In ruling against granting: of
the injunction Judge Calkins held
that the remedy sought by the pe
titioners could be obtained after
election. If the county clerk had
refused to strike names from the
recall petition after being asked
to so qu, iub juuge ruiea, me elec
tion would be invalid.
Judge Calkins ruled that the re
call, , if permitted to proceed, would
not injure Sheriff Terrill, except
perhaps in the way of humiliation,
but on the other hand, refusing to
permit the election would be re
fusing the electorate its most sacred
right, that of expressing itself at
Judge Calkins in his decision
called attention to the fact that
Judge Hamilton of Douglas county,
who was refused the right to sit
on the case, because of the filing
of a petition charging prejudice by
the recall committee's attorney,
concurred in every particular in
the decision as handed down. '

season of the year the meadows-are
green, producing a large amount of
green feed, but they are drying up
