Ir the jadicial apportionmiut bill
Is not passed, the jadicial systt-m of
the state will be in an uncertain con.
dition, whine the republicans. Well,
the easiest way oat of it, suggests an

The circuits ere now satisfactory ex

and Cullom cannot take care of.
Deasoerata Will Lat It A Ion.
The republican plan aa to the judi
cial apportionment is to try and get
the conference commltteea to sabmit
a report favoring the passage of the
bill with the emergency clause. The
reason will be that otherwise the bill
will be passed without it, and there
by there will be an uncertainty as
to the judicial system of the state.
The reason should not have any
weight with any democrat. If the
judicial system of the state is to be
thrown into confusion let the blame
rest upon the republican majority in
the two bouses. They bare made
the most unfair apportionment ever
presented in the state in addition to
increasing the number of judges un
necessarily. Out of 17 circuits they
have given the democrats four. Gov.
Tanner, in his letter to .Speaker
Curtis admits that the republican mi
iorltv In Illinois will go bsrk to twen
tv-flve to thirty thousand. If this
is true then the democrats should
have at least eight of the new cir
cuits. But aside from all questions
of no.itics, the circuits are most un
equal the democratic circuits being
large and with business to keep the
judges busy all the year round. The
republican circuits are not only
small in population, but a number
of them will not furnish business
enough to keep the judges busy one-
tbiru ot the time.
The republican members while
asking democrata to support this ex
tremely partisan measure make no
concealment of their intention of
making a new congressional appor
tionment and a new senatorial ap

INDIANA MINERS' CONVENTION. .
Leader Says the Trouble la That There Are
100,000 Too Many Men.
Terre Haute, Ind., April 82. The min
ers' convention devoted itself yesterday to
a discussion of the scale. John Kane, na
tional vice president of Ohio, addressed
the meeting. He said tho cause of tho de
pression in mining, as In every occupa
tion, was an over-supply. There are over
100,000 more men working or seeking
work in the mines than can profitably be
used. There are 330,000 miners, all told,
in the United States. The most impor
tant development ot the day's session was
the submission of a proposition from the
operators. They offer to pay theUocking
Valley price of 51 cents per ton, and ask
that day labor be reduced proportionately.
here drivers are now receiving 91.80
per day the proposed scale would reduce
them to $1.63. In many places, however,
the miners are receiving but 47 cents.
The miners will take no definite action
regarding the scale until the conference
with the operators tonight The men ex
pressed themselves as unanimously in la

Arbitration Illegal tn This Case.
Indianapolis, April22. In theconstruc-
tion cf the Fulton county court house
the sub-contractor for the basement
put in a claim for $20,000 for "extras,"
and ' the commissioners submitted the
matter to arbitration, and after a hear
ing allowed $18,000. Citizens sought to
enjoin the commissioners from pay
ing the money, and the supreme court
held that the allowance was Illegally
made. The court holds that boards of
county commissioners have no power
to submit disputes to arbitration.'
