THE jury reform movement in the United States has been di
rected toward getting the selection of jury lists out of!
?he hands of partisan officials and toward making them
more nearly representative of the masses. Formerly, in most of
the States, the jury lists were made up by officials who had been 1
chosen on party tickets?usually by the county sheriffs. In some'
of the States the lists were made up from the tax payers. The
first named method frequently made juries parts of po
litical machines. The other method made them representative
of the property owning class only.
Frequently people here and there urge tnai an me names*!
of those who voted at a previous election within the county or
the district from which the jury is to be drawn should be placed
on the jury list, and that the jurors should be drawn from thisj
list. That method, however, has been generally discarded as im-:
practicable, for the reason that there are many people who are
qualified to vote who are excluded from jury service for reasons
that have been deemed sufficient; or they have been given the
right to claim exemption, and, usually, one who has that right ex
ercises it. For instance, lawyers, doctors, ministers of the gos
pel, firemen, all public officials, those who have served on a jury
within the year, men over 60 years of age, and all those suffering
of physical affliction that would endanger them or those whom they
associate with in the jury room or jury box, or interfere with
their making good jurors, are either disqualified or given the
right of exemption. Now and again the names of those who have
been bound over for grand jury investigation appear on the poll
books. The poll books also contain the names of many persons
who remove their places of residence from within the jurisdic
tion of the court before the time comes to draw a jury.
It would not De in tne interest oi jury reiunu nave a
lot of people drawn on the jury and brought to the court
house at the expense of the community only to discover that they
are disqualified to serve. It would not only entail a large cost to
the taxpayers but it would permit an officer of the court to pick too
many jurors on an open venire. It would bring us back to the
one man method of selection.
To meet this situation fairly, jury reformers hit upon the
plan of non-partisan jury commissioners which are required toj
select lists of men who are qualified to serve as jurors sufficiently
large and so completely representative of all the people that a
satisfactory jury may be secured from it. They use the poll |
books rather than tax lists to get names. That plan has been
adopted in many states, including those of the Pacific coast.
This is the plan that was adopted by Congress in preparing
the Alaska law. The law requires that the list selected in this
manner in Alaska must contain not less than 300 names.
As it applies to the Fist Judicial Division of this Territory,
two such lists are made up each year?one for the Juneau or north
end of the Division, and one for the Ketchikan, or south end of
the Division. That means that at least 600 names have to be
selected. When one takes into account that the total vote cast
in the last Territorial election in the First Division was 1947?
not 5,000?it means that a representative percentage of the vot
ers must be included on the lists. It might be that the time has
come that the minimum, for the north end of the Division at
least, could be increased, but that is a matter of detail. The last
jury list for this Division, did, as a matter of fact, it is said, con
tain 360 names.

Those wno continue to urge iuai me uamco wv
tors be included on the jury lists have suggested several ways of
surmounting the difficulties that confront it. Some of them have
been tried. For instance, (1) they suggest that the qualifica
tions of a man to serve as a juror may be ascertained when he
registers as a voter; (2) that juries twice as large as are needed
be selected, and that a qualified jury be selected by the process
of elimination; (3) that when the panel is exhausted that the
names of veniremen be drawn from the jury list, and that that
process be continued until a sufficient number of qualified jurors
However, thus far, nearly all of the States that have taken
up the matter of jury reform have followed the system of select
ing a large list of qualified men by a non-partisan jury commis
sion from the poll lists.
There are two notable things connected with the snowing
made by the Juneau City Council's financial report that should
not escape attention: A progressive administration was called
upon to expend only $179 for the health department and less than
$500 was expended for the care of the poor. Better evidence of
the healthfulness and prosperity of Juneau could not be offered.
THAT FAIR EXHIBIT.
IT BEHOOVES the people of Alaska to start work to secure
additional funds from Congress for an adequate exhibit at
the San Francisco fair. It the Federal government desires
to get a fair run for the money that it is about to expend in this
Territory in the construction of railroads it should not miss the
chance that the Panama-Pacific Exposition affords for informing
the world of the resources of the North. For that reason, if for
no other, it should not be a difficult matter to get Congress to
gather and maintain at San Francisco a fair exhibit of its re
sources and other claims to the interest of the public. The Alas
ka commission had $100,000 to use for its exhibit at Seattle. It
should have more for San Francisco.
That Palmer, Penrose, Pinchot Senatorial contest in Penn
sylvania will occupy a great deal of the political stage this year.
