I’MT FOR STATE ROAD
Justice King DlaMWts From Opinion
of the Other Four Judg«-s
of the Court
No Htate highway will be built
through Jackson and Klamath Coun-
tl«a to Crater Lake with th«- financial
help of th«> Htate of Oregon, accord
ing to the decision of four of tho
Judg««s of the Supreme Court, which
was rendered this week at Salem.
Justice King dissents from the de
cision of the other members of th«-
court, and holds that the law does
not contravene th«« constitution.
Justice McBride, in passing on the
qu«-*Hon, hold« that it Is best to first
consider the intent with which th«.*
sections of the constitution claimed
In opposition to the law, were enact
ed. He th«-n reviews the early his
tory of the territory and State in
regard to local road laws, and shows
that. during«th<- early days It was the
practice to appropriate large sums for
local roads, citing numerous instance«
where this was done.
It is significant, the court says, that
these laws, after the organization of
th«« Oregon territory, were not pub
lished among the general laws, but
were compile«! together in a separate
volume and entitled local laws.
Passing directly to the Crater Lake
roa«l case, Justice McBride argues
that “If the Crater Lake road is a
State road it permits the county
courts of Jackson and Klamath to lay
a burden upon the taxpayers of those
counti«*s not shared equally by the
taxpayers of the other parts of the
Impose-«« Tu\ on All
“If, on the other hand, it is to be
regarded as a county road in each of
the counties through which it passes,
it imposes taxes upon the people of
the rest of the State for the con
struction of county roads in Jackson
and Klamath Counties and in either
case it is local.”
