NEED FOR REAL SALEM SPIRIT
Salem will soon have no theatrical performances at
all and will have to be content to be known only as a
movie town, and if this thing comes to pass the Salem
iTople will alone be to blame because they refuse to
atronize even the most worthy shows, apparently pre
E? to spend their money in Portland iov wtevtzm
nient of this class. An instance, the bright little farce
-Fair and Warmer" was so cleverly acted that it pleased
the small number of theatre goers, who attended, and

HOW DID IT HAPPEN ?
The question has been asked numberless times:
"Where did the courts get the power to set aside laws and
override congress?" So far as we know it has never been
answered. It seems ridiculous on the face of it that it
should be so. To illustrate: . The people of the state of
Oregon elect a legislature and governor. At the same
time they elect among other officers a circuit court judge,
say in Marion county.
The legislature representing all the people of the state
and elected f rdm each of its legislative districts, enacts a
law, and the governor elected by all the people signs it.
Here is a legislative act performed by the representatives
of all the people. Now some lawyer can pick a flaw in
the bill, that will permit him to tae it before the judge
elected in Marion county by the voters of Marion and Linn
counties, and this judge can hold the- law is unconstitu
tional. Here then we have the anomaly of an official
elected by but a small portion of the citizens of the state
overriding the will of the representatives of the whole
state, and rendering their act and their law of no force,
until such time as the supreme court can pass upon it;
and indefinitely, unless his decision is appealed from,
wvion rilrl trio cinnlW nffifial become more nowerful than
the larger ones? When did the creature of the people
of a small district become greater than the representa
tivs of all the people, the creator? When and where did
a judge get the power to say to the 90 members of the
legislature, "you cannot pass sucn a law. vvneu anu

was described as "the highest room in a house." In the
same volume a "garret" was described as: "the room

drifted into the garret class.
There is somewhat of a stir in police circles since the
death of Miss Rigdon, and auto speeders or those violat
ing the law otherwise are being shown that theiaws must
be obeyed. It is high time this was done, and if a moder
