f rX)NDDN, Jane 18, Since
Easter the dUorce courts have
been working at high pressure to
clear I oft an unprecedented ac
cumulation of arrears, which, ad
ded to la steady stream), of new
canes,, threatened at one time to
overwhelm the physical! capacity
of the bench. P
Lit needed the assistance of a
number of retired Judges to make
headway-against the avalanche of
suits,, with the result that they
have been disposed of at the ar
erage rte ot two score or more
a day.- .
' : Lord on Bench i
The at& Chancellor, Lord Bir
kenhead, himself lent assistance
by acting a san ordinary judge
lnsthe courts. Reviewing the po
sition lie said: ' i
"The! war has left a degree of
unrest !which has spread into al
most every sphere of modern life,
and thf influence of which is
likely to be felt for an indefinite
period la domestic relationships.
War Cause Divorces
"Nineteen out of 20 of the cas
es in arrears," Lord Birkenhead
added, "had their causes in the
war or consequences of the war,
The date when he joined the ar
my' wis the early chronological
landmark of petitioner ; after pe
titioner, from which dated the
familiar and melancholy story of
weakness on the part Of the wife."
It is Lord Birkenhead a opm
Ion , that matrimonial suits may
rot, return at least for a genera
tion, to the pre-war level.

situation has revived . controver

should be charged higher rates
than those who use private wires

. Early in the cross-examination
Chaw questioned Major Itabcocfc
minutely as to the character of
I he responsible positions in which
he had served.
North Klectrlc company, for
which Major Babcock was at one
time general manager, he skid
the company had pone into a re
reiver's hands during h's absence
n petition of attorneys of the
Western Electric company on
grounds that patents of the
North Electric company were val
ueless, yet during the receiver
ship the Western Electric com
rany agreed to pay and did pay
1375,000 for these same patents,
thereby acquiring rights to the
Korvlo Xiit Volunteered.
The witness told how the city
of Portland had repeatedly, solici
ted his services as a conau'ting
engineer In the present case, and
that he had declined until Mayor
Hugh Caldwell of Sealtle, at thi
request of Mayor Maker of Port
land, importuned him to accent.
My conduct In appearing in
this case," added the major,
"leaves 'riiy conscience perfectly
clear, and I resent your imputa
tions of dishonesty."
Shaw objected that there was
no basis for the remark, and
Chairman Williams called for a
cessation of personal. ties.
Ti-:nl to 8emi-.tut-mat!c.
Shaw asked a series or ques
tions as to why, with so many
Independent companies In the
United States, more are not adopting-
the semi-automatic equip
ment of the Everett system.
The witness replied that the
trend was in that direct-on. The
Kellogg group of exchanges, ho
aid, is adopting by the hun
dreda the automatic equipment
for its manual switchboards.
"Dingbats" made a sudden in
vasion of the telephone rate case
rehearing Just prior to the noon
adjournment and made the atmos
phere so electrical that the lunch
call was interjected to relieve the
situation. Attorney J. T. Shaw,
of the Pacific Telephone and Tel
egraph company, accusde Major
uaDcoca 91 trying to peddle his
or Babcock had a personal inter
est la advocating the devices men
tioned in his testimony. Turning f
again to Babcock he asked:
"Will, you tell us what it is,

ServJcr Limit Small.
The jsalient feature in Major
Babcoclt's testimony was his as
sertion that the maximum serv
ice with the obsolete manual
equipment which it says the Pa-
Villi; I, Mill JJAII J UO-Q sis v F w - . .
150 calls per hour for each oper- ,L ?
ator. while with the labor-saving j t
semi-automatic evices one oper
ator csin handle 70 calls per
hour. At Everett, Wash., where
the senii-autoinalic is used he de
clared itnat 450 caUs are an
sweredJ In Oregon he opined
that calls do not average over 100
an hour. The semi-automatic he
rated as three or four times as
efficient as that now used In Ore
gon. The jack-per-station type
he branded as obsolete, and with
an overloaded switchboard de
clared it imposes tremendous men
tal and, physical strain upon the
operators and makes errors fre
quent. Kickers Klimlnr.ted.
Installation of the modem sys
tem at! Everett, Babcock declared j
had extended the life of the"equip- mm
ment 20 years and more than off
set the; cost of its insiallallon. So
satisfactory is the Everett service,
he said, that the chronic kicker
has been eliminated. The rate
of obsolescense is not likely to
increase in the future, the wit
ness sid, but will probably de
crease.! In reply to a question by
Mr. Tomlinson he said the haz
ards to telephone equipment in
Oregon! due to salt atmosphere,
are noj greater than elsewhere in
the United States.
Attorney Tomlinson read from
an order of a utility commission
of Illinois on which from the rate
base for Chicago had been de
ducted; a depreciation reserve of
$16,00j),000for the city and $3,
500, 00b ior suburban territory.

Shaw, "are you prepared to say

Merchants and manufacturers would

often would not try.
Merchants, unable to tell yxm what
