House Committee of the
Whole on Disqualifi
cation of Judges.
Change of Venue Bill Will
Be Taken Up By the
House Today.
Helena, Dec. S.-After a prolonged ses
sion in committte of the whole, which
lasted far beyond the noon hour, the house
set its stamp of approval on the Duggan
disqualification of judges bill. It is proba
ble that late this afternoon the bill will be
engrossed and finally passed. This will
send it to the senate for action there on
The bill, as approved by the committee
of the whole house, contained but one
amendment, that agreed on by the repub
lican caucus and offered by Everett, limit
ing the number of judges who may be dis
qualified to five. MacGinniss made a bit
ter fight against the measure, but was
turned down at every stage.
The Self change-of-venue bill will be
considered in committee of the whole
house this afternoon and doubtless re
ported favorably. The house did not ad
journ for -lunch until nearly a o'clock and
then the adjournment was to 3:30 p. m.
Battle in the House.
Helena, Dec. 5.-The first business in
the house today was the introduction of
a bill by Self, appropriating $2,4oo to pay
the salary of the clerk of state superin
tendent of public instruction for two
years. It was referred to the committee
on education.
Shannon then introduced his bill to pro
vide for the operation of mining properties
when closed by injunction. When
the clerk had finished reading the
bill Speaker White said he was compelled
to rule the bill out of order, as it was not
within the limits of the call for the extra
session on the subjects mentioned by the
governor in his message. Shannon ap
pealed from the decision of the chair.
\Vithout debate the appeal was sustained
on a rising vote by 39 to 1o.
Committee of the Whole.
The house went into committee of the
whole, Swindlehurst in the chair. House
hill, No. 3, relating to disqualification of
judges, was taken up first. Everett pro
posed an amendment which provided that
"no more than five judges can be dis
qualified for bias or prejudice" at the in
stance of either side. The bill provided
that "no more than two judges from dis
tricts other titan in which the action or
proceeding was conmmnenced can be dis
qualified for bias or prejudice" at the in
stance of either side.
MacGinniss proposed an amendment to
the amentdment which differed from the
Everett proposition by limiting to two the
number of judges to be disqualified, which
would have the effect of still making one
judge in Silver Bow county eligible. Mac
Ginniss was armed with a lot of documents
and proceeded to talk on his amendment.
He said the present statutes of Montana
provided an adequate remedy. Speaking
of the number of judges permitted to be
disqualified he asserted that in the county
to which this legislation was directed more
particularly aflidavits could be procured
for a small sumt which would impugn the
honesty of the highest court in the state.
The MacGinniss amendment was defeated.
Word Opposed.
Word of Lewis and Clarke opposed the
Everett amendment. lie thought two
judges enough to be disqualified. Duggan
also thought the bill made ample provis
ion for fair trials. "After a thorough
fumigation of Departments z and a in
Silver Bow county, things will move along
all right," said he.
Everett then spoke for his amendment,
which he said, gave both sides to a legal
fight equal rights. As the bill was re
ported it was not a Fair Trial bill. It
assumed that three judges were rascals to
start with.' It gave one party the right
to disqualify three judges to start with,
and then gave that party the same rights
as the other party outside the district
where the action was begun. His amend
ment proposed to give each side five chal
lenges of judges, regardless of what dis
tricts the judges might be in,
Duggan withdrew his objection to the
Everett amendment and it was adopted.
MacGinniss then proposed another
amendment providing for counter affida
vits and the taking of testimony in dis
qualification proceedings, also that the
district judge who is disqualified shall call
in another, who must respond at once. The
amendment limited the number of disquali
fications to five, MacGinniss was pro
ceeding to discuss his amendment when
Johnson interrupted with a motion that
the committee arise and report progress.
Though it was noon, and most of the mem
hers had a right to be hungry, the motion
was lost by 24 to ap and MacGinniss went
on with his talk,
His remarks were directed principally
to the counter affidavit proposition which
he thought fair.
Connor thought with a highminded, hon.
orable judge, the mere allegation of bias
ought to cause him to refuse to try a case.
With affidavits and counter affidavits he
would be put in an embarrassing position.
MacGinniss said it might be as well to
get down to brass tracks, In the county
of Silver Bow they were living close to
nature and the Alphonse-Gaston act would
not work very well.
Conner said it would work if the judges
were highminded and honorable men,
Lynch of Silver Bow said the Everett
amendment would fix the matter properly.
The MacGinniss amendment would mean
countless affidavit-making; it would mean
as much litigation to secure a change of
venue as there would be on actual trial.
He doubted whether under such a provision
it would be possible to ever get a change
of venue. He believed the legislation
proposed by the two bills betore the house
would stop S5 per cent of the litigation
in Silver Bow county.
Lynch said he was not speaking for
either side to the controversy in Silver
Bow county, but the conditions which pre
vailed there recently when the mines were
closed were not good for the community.
After MsacGinniss had spoken again, his
amendment was voted down without divi
Wood, of Lewis and Clarke, offered an
amendment providing that, it shall be the
duty of the judge of the district in which
the action is pending to forthwith secure
the services of some other district to act
in the case.
What Stapleton Said.
Stapleton said this amendment had been
threshed out in the judiciary committee.
Some thought that it would have the effect
of voiding the whole measure. While he
would not say the amendment was uncon
stitutional yet there were grave doubts on
that point, and he did not want to inject
anything into the bill that would cause any
doubts as to the validity of the law.
1MacGinniss favored the Word amend
ment and took advantage of the occasion
to make another extended talk.
The Word amendment wast lost and
the bill recommended for passage with the
Everett amendment, which limits disquali
fications to five judges and which is as the
republicans in caucus decided to have it.
The committee then arose and reported
to the house. Conner moved to adopt the
report. MacGinniss moved as an amend
ment to indefinitely postpone the bill. lie
gave a lot of reasons for his motion,
among them being these: That it was a
reflection on the judiciary, expensive to
litigants, against speedy trials, gives dis.
appointed litigants the chance to defame
judges without the judges being allowed to
reply, makes it impussible to get self-re
specting lawyers to hold judicial offices,
takes from the people the right to choose
their own judges, and a number of other
reasons meant as all arglnment on the tmo
tion to postpone indefinitely.
The motion to postpone indefinitely was
lost by a viva voce vote and the report
adopted the same way.
MacGinniss wanted the journal cor
rected to show that rule o,. relating to.
the order of business was suspended on
the first day of the session without one
day's notice, as required in the rule re
garding changing or rescinding a stand
ing rule. The speaker said it was not
a change in a rule nor was the rule re
scinded. It was suspended by a two
thirds vote of the house at the sugges
tion of the committee on rules. He ruled
that the house was working 'properly un
der the rules.
The house then took a-recess until 3:30
this afternoon.
In the Senate.
Helena, Dece. 5.-The only husiness in
the senate was the report of the judiciary
committee on Senate Bills s. - and 3. The
first is the HofTman bill providing for the
review of facts on appeal in civil ca..s,
the others are the 'Maddox Fair Trial bill,
one of these bills and relative to the
change of venue is the same as that now
before the house. The other. relating to
the' disqualitication of judges differs in the
fourth paragraph, which is as follows:
"4\-When either party makes and files
an affidavit, as hereinafter provided, that
he has reason to believe, and does believe,
he cannot have a fair and impartial hear
ing or trial before a district judge by rea
son of the bias and prejudice of such
judge, such alfidavit may he mtade by any
party to an action, or special proceeding,
personally or by his attorney or agent, and
shall be filed with the clerk of the district
court in which the samne may be pending,
at ally time before the day appointed or
fixed for the hearing or trial of any such
action or proceeding. Upon the filing of
the affidavit, the judge, as to whom such
disqualification is averred, shall be with
out authority 'to act in the action or pro
ceeding, except as to the arrangement of
the calendar atndl regulating the order of
business, but it shall be the duty of such
district judge, within five days after the
filing of such afitlavit, to designate an
other dlitrilt judge to appear and assnmce
jurisdiction of said action or proeceding.
The name of the judge so designated shall
be forthwith entered in the minutes of the
court. If within ten days thereafter the
judge so designated does not appear or
notify the clerk of his intention to pre
side in such cause, it shall be the duty of
the clerk of the court wherein such cause
is pending to forthwith certify to the gov
ernor the fact of the designation or ap
pointment of such judge and of his failure
to appear, and thereupon it shall be the
duty of the governor to request such dis
trict judge to appear and assunme jurisdic
tion of such action or proceeding. Such
judge, whether appearing upon the request
of the district judge or the governor, shall
be vested with and shall exercise in said
cause, all the authority of the judge of the
district in which such action or proceed
ing may be pending. In case the parties
shall agree in writing upon another district
judge, or upon a member of the bar as
judge pro tempore, as provided for by the
constitution, the judge of the district court
before whom such action or proceeding is
pending shall request the attendance of the
judge or member of the liar agreed upon.
Not more than two district judges outside
of the district in which the action or pro
ceeding is pending can he disqualified for
bias or prejudice in said action or pro
ceeding at the instance of either the plaint.
iff or defendant, and this limitation shall
apply, however, many parties or persons in
interest may be plaintilTs or defendants in
such action or proceeding. Where an affi
davit is filed disqualifying the judge, as
hereinbefore provided, after the action is
set for trial or hearing, the party filing
the same shall pay to the opposite party all
costs necessarily incurred in securing the
attendance of witnesses between the date
the order was made fixing the day of hear
ing or trial and the time the affidavit was
filed, and such costs so paid shall not be
recoverable in the action or proceeding."
