At the state election in June
the people will be called upon to
vote upon an amendment to the
state constitution which will be
entitled on the official ballot
"Tudiciary Amendment." If
you vote for this amendment it
will mean to increase the judges
of the supreme court from three
to five, which will entail upon
the taxpayers of the state a large
expense. It is claimed by
those who favor the amendment
that there are accumulated upon
the docket of the supreme court
about 178 cases which have not
yet been decided by the court,
which delays the cases about one
year after the appeal is taken be
fore they can be tried. It will be
remembered that the number of
people who have cases for trial
before the courts are very few as
compared with the whole num
ber of people who pay the taxes,
and do not have such cases in
court. As the laws now stand,
the public expense of conducting
the court in trying these cases is
nearly all paid by the tax-payers,
who have but little or no litiga
tion, while the parties whose
cases are being tried bears little
of that expense, except as he
bears his pro rata of general tax
ation. The tax-payers cannot
afford to incur further expense to
facilitate litigation, and especial
ly is this so when the legislation
is such that it exempts the liti
gant from paying the expense
caused the public in the trial of
his own case, and transfers such
expense to the tax-payer who has
no cases to try, and who con
ducts his business so as to keep
it out of the courts. There will
be but little gained except the
extra expense incured by in
creasing tne number 01 judges
from three to five, because a
large portion of the judges' time
is spent in hearing the trial of
the cases and determining what
decision to make, and in so do
ing the whole number sit togeth
er. The increase suggested
would require five judges to sit
spending their time to hear and
decide a case instead of three as
now. The proper way to relieve
the docket of the supreme court
is to limit the cases on appeal so
that those involving less than
300 or $500 cannot be appealed
to the supreme court and furnish
the three judges whom we now
have with plenty of clerical help
so that when the court decides a
Case the decision can be quickly
reducedfto writing suitable for
publication. The reason why
the work of the supreme court
has accumulated is that until the
last legislature the judges re
duced their decisions to writing
personally and without clerical
assistance. The last legislature
supplied each judge with a clerk,
which has enabled them to gaiu
in disposing of the work before
them. It is claimed by those
who favor this amendment that
the work of the supreme court is
about two years behind, which
is not correct. The records of
the court show that there are
about 178 cases on the docket to
be disposed of, also that the
number of cases within the times
mentioned have been disposed of
as follows:
From Oct. 1st, 1897, to Oct, 1st, 1898 180 cases
From Oct. 1st, 1898, to Oct. Ist, 1899 174 cases
From Oct. 1st, 1899, to April 1st, 1900,... Ill cases
From Jan. 1st, 1900, to Apui 1st, laoo... be! cases
So that it will be seen that
the court within each year for
considerable time has been dis
posing of as many cases as are
now waiting trial; hence, it can
not be said that the court is more
than one year behind with the
work betore it. As suggested, a
plentiful supply of efficient cleri
cal help will enable the court to
catch up with the work. The
amendment suggested should not
be made. It will be greatly to
the best interests of the tax-payers
and people of Oregon to vote
against it.
The Times again begs the ques
tion in comparing the cost of tax
rolls under B. W. Wilson and
Mr. Watters. Mr. Wilson was
working- under the fee bill and
not under a salary. But clerk
Watters is working under a sal
ary which should include
cost of tax rolls without any
tra pay from the county.
Watters sot the salar and
extra pay also, while Mr
son got no salary at all.
Times again attempts to beg the
questions involved by comparing
Ex-County Clerk Hunter'
work with that of Mr. Watters.
It will be remembered that Mr
Hunter's time of service was un
der a democratic administration.
He was elected as a democrat,
and while he made a good, oblig
ing clerk, republicans were not
responsible for it. As to the ex
pense of Mr. Hunter's term, it
cannot well be compared with
the few years past, because Mr.
Hunter's time was during: the
troublous times of the Oregon
Pacific Railroad's receivership,
while that of Mr. Watters' has
continued through several years
of very quiet times with corres
pondingly little work in the
clerk's office.
The Times will probably be
surprised to learn that Thomas H
Tongue has already done all an
American citizen could d in the
interest of the two republics in
South Africa. Every citizen,
however, who claims to be only
fairly well posted, knows that
as long ago as last October M
Tongue was one of a number of
representatives, senators and
judges of the court who petition
ed President McKinley, through
the New York World, to offer his
friendly services in mediation
between Great Britain and the
republics of the Transvaal and
the Orange Free State. Follow
in this the president, at the re
quest of the Boer government,
signified to Great Britain his wil
iingness to exercise ins good
offices more than any other na
tion has done.
The Times' write-ups of its
candidates read so much like
obituaries, that their appearance
seems premature. They would
be more in order afer election.

J. M. Cameron lias been a P remittent Cor
vallis Business Man for Years.
J. M. Cameron, the candidate
for sheriff on the republican tick
et, has been an honored resident
of Corvallis continuously for
about twenty years, except the
short period when lie con
ducted a harness and saddlery
business at Eebanon, Einn coun
ty, Oregon. He worked for N.
P. Briggs for many years at the
stand now occupied by Mr. Cam
eron, until he concluded to open
business on his own account. He
went to Eebanon and conducted
the same line of business until
Mr. Briggs concluded to sell his
business in Corvallis at which
time Mr. Cameron purchased it
where he has since done a pros
perous business. Mr. Cameron
is so well known as a good,
thorough, industrious workman
and ever since his business career
he has been continuously found
at his daily work at his bench,
that it seems a waste of time to
mention them. Mr. Cameron
has been prominently noted for
making especially fine and dur
able harness which he has had a
very fine market for, often sell
ing them to go into Eastern Ore
gon and other long distances.
East but not least, Mr. Cameron
is especially qualified to attend
to the sheriff's business and to
conduct and keep the accounts
existing between the sheriff's
office and the county. Mr. Cam
eron has also been a taxpayer
aad a producer of this county
for many years, whose property
interests and business make him
a permanent fixture in the coun
ty so far as the material interests
of any man can be. The people
will make no mistake in voting
for Mr. Cameron for sheriff.
New Train Service.
The double train service to be estab
lished between Portland and Chicago
April 22nd, in which the O. R. & N.,
the Union Pacilic and the Oregon Short
Line are interested, wilt shorten the
through time 11 hours. Train No. 2
leaving Portland at 9:15 a. m., begin
ning on the date named, will be known
as the Chicago-Portland special. Its
equipment will be new, making it fully
the equal of any train now in service
from the Pacific Coast to ehe East. It
will consist of a mail-car, a baggage-car,
a library-composite car, a first-class pull
man sleeper, a dining-car, two chair
cars, and a tourist sleeper. There will
be but one change of cars to all eastern

Washington division at Pendleton. At
this point there is a large interchange of
traffic, on account of the various mining
districts of Baber county, the Coeur d'
Alene, the Bepublic and Kootenai min

ed by this change, in as much as in
creased service is given from Eastern

ing day. The time will be reduced two
hours and 45 minutes. No. 3 westbound
