two bullets into his brain. .
The tragedy occurred about 7 o'clock last evening, and an hour later the
crazed young husband died in the Lane hospital.
Young Jadwin had been drinking heavily since the quarrel with his
wife a little more than a week ago, when he left the Bauer home, where they
had been staying for about a month previous.
Mrs. Jadwin refused to see her husband repeatedly, and about an hour
before the shooting last night he telephoned to her. When she heard his

Bitterly Assails Judi
ciary of Country
BERKELEY, Jan. 13.—1n one of what
is regarded as the most remarkable doc
uments ever published by the L'niver
sity of California, Thomas H. Reed, as
sociate professor of government, sur
veys public administration in state
and nation, utters a scathing criti
cism of the judiciary and recom
mends as a corrective for governmental
defects a program of reforms almost
revolutionary in scope and nature.
"At present the courts are not genu
inely respected, because they are not
respectable, yet respect for the courts
lies at the basis of civilization.'"
WHY fOIRTS ARE >OT RESPECTED
So reads one of Professor Reed's gen
eralizations. The condition which he
describes in such drastic terms is im
puted by him to four chief causes, which
he thus summarizes:
"Slowness and uncertainty of justice.
"Narrow technicality, which leaves
the poor defenseless.
"A carrying too far of the doctrine of
injunction, until the great laboring class
looks on the judiciary as its natural
"Undue devotion to the interests of
Five reforms. Professor Reed asserts,
will restore the courts to dignity and
efficiency. He defines these reforms as
"A judiciary of highly paid legal ex
perts, appointed for good behavior.
"More judges in some places and
harder work by judges in others.
"A verdict in criminal cases by three
fourths of the jury.
"Reform of l°gal ethics.
"Provision for easier amendment of
the United States constitution."
APPOINTIVE POWER FAVORED
The short ballot and direct elections
are both unequivocally Indorsed by
Reed as salutary and essential reforms.
In the 'state he would have only three
elective executive officials—the gov
ernor, lieutenant governor and con
To the governor he would confide
amplest appointive powers. The mem
bers of the governor's cabinet, ap
pointed by him, should each head a
department, and each should have in
his department appointive power, sub
ject to a civil service law. The super
intendent of public instruction, how
ever, should be appointed by a board
which in turn would be appointed by

Nicholas Van Bergen, and some young'
women guests, had been seated at the
table but a short time when young

entrance was a complete surprise. It
had been necessary for him to slip
into the house through the servant*'

quarrel he has been refused admittance
to the house, which was the eeahe c!

pressed two revolvers into her bosom

TWO BILLETS IN BRAIN
Turning the same weapon—a 32 cal

then fired two bullets into his brain and
dropped in his tracks.
Paralyzing horror kept the witnesses
fast in their seats at the table until it
was too late to interfere.
Besides the mother of the murdered
woman there were present at. the din
