THE COUNTY JUD0E5.
They Meet and Resolute Upon A Va
riety of Subjects.
The county judges held a state
convention at Portland last week.
About eight or ten counties in the
state were represented, but from
the "whereases" and "resolves"
enunciated by them it would ap
pear that they were a mighty host.
Like all similar conventions that
have gone before them, they re
soluted on nearly every subject but
that of county judges. Some of the
reforms proposed are good and have
been so recognized by everybody
long before the county judges reso
luted on them. They made Lincoln
county an object of especial and
paternal interest by resoluting that
the legislature name a salary for
clerk and sheriff of this county.
Lincoln county will feel very grate
ful to lue judges of Multnomah,
Clatsop, Benton and one or two
other counties for so kindly allow
ing the legislature to act in this
matter. If the judges two years
ago had resoluted on this matter.
and the legislature had paid any
attention to it, Lincoln county
would not now be threatened with
an expensive law suit.
Tne fact of the matter is, these
conventions of county officers held
just before legislatures meet are so
muoh wasted efforts. Of all of the
resolutions, passed by the judges
two years ago, not one was incor
porated into a law, and not one will
be this coming session by reason of
the judges' resolutions. In fact,
about one half of the judge? were
too busy two years ago trying to
get their salaries raised, or keeping
them from being lowered that they
lost track of their "reform" resolu
tions. The next thing in order will be
for the clerks to meet, and then the
sheriffs, and then the assessors, and
then the school superintendents',
and even the coroners might meet
and pass a job lot of resolutions.
Of course none of them would be
expected to resolute on any matters
pertaining to their respective offices.
but would regulate all the other
j offices as well as the sun, moon and
These conventions, however, do
no particular harm, unless the
judges put in a bill to their coun
ties for attendance, and then it is
time to choke it off. Lincoln coun
ty paid one such bill, but the prec
edent was a bad one.

The Rock Creek school closed

The effects of the "baching de

a horse and all but one of the mem

started toward home through the
deep mud and deepening darkness
with an outward show of bravery,
but more than one scream rent the
lonely woods as each imagined
terror presented itself. For in

against a vine maple which sprang
back and caused a piece of wood
