In; ° rder that y ° Ur readers ' Mention may ' be more readily re-called to the ar e ^ 1 will say that said article had reference to certian claims allowed ° L. Vineyard, Justice of the Peace, agKre „ t j ^782 25 I have not taken the trouble ascertain as whether or not said items as stated . , , in your P a P er were correct, but for the purposes of this explanation will r ' take it for granted that they are. In the first place nearly all the said a claims incurred in preliminary exam j nat j ons j n cr i m ; na i cases including in ' | the holding of some of the defendants ; tQ thc distrjct court> and some dis _ j charged. The law provides that such cxaminations must be reduced t() by ^ ^ ^ be taken by a stenographer and after-1 words transcribed and certified by him at the request and under the sup ervision of the justice who is called in such cases the examining magis träte (see Session Laws 1905, page 376). The law also provides that the $6.00 for sitting as magistrate, and in addition thereto shall be allowed the sum of 20 cent per folio, or for each 100 words of the evidence taken at such examination. examining magistrate shall receive 1 , . , ., , , , ,, which said sum under thç law would have to be and was allowed by the board of county commissioners, and paid to L. Vineyard and I suppose he has settled with and paid the steno Some of the preliminary examina tions had include important criminal I cases such as the Tom Allison, Soards and Winchester cases, two of whom are now in the penitentary. I On the preliminary examinations had and included in the items you men tion the stenographers fees at 20 cent per folio amounted to $548.02, grapher who did the work. The balance of said sum total includes justice's fees for sitting as magistrate, also fees in misdemeanor cases wheth er by trial or plea of guilty, said cases being too numerous for me tion or ask space for in your paper. Most of those offenses that hav not occured in Grangeville have been brought to Grangeville for to men L. !' U precinct to In some instances thcre has bctM1 no i ustices the pre cinct where the crime was committed; in one instance the justice ness in the case; in others the expense of going to the precinct and taking stenographer, as for instance into the mountains, would be as much more as it would cost to hold the amination at Grangeville, for in pre- j j liminary examinations only, such wit-i various reasons. was a wit a or ex j j nesses as are necessary to make a pri I ma facie case are called and in many ! instances it is advisable, owing to the 1 feeling existing in the community f where tbe offcnsc was committed, to i a hold the Preliminary elsewhere. Whi,e the probatc court has juris- 1 diction to try such matters on pre . .... , 1 liminary examination, it is not the pro - , . . ' , 1 vince or duty of the probate court to , „ , , H 1 hear all of such matters, nor would he ■ . , , .. it be proper to burden said court with j L. criminal examinations when justices of the peace are elected for such poses, and again the expense in each case would be the same excepting the sum of $6 which the justice of the peace would get for sitting as magistrate and under the law the pro bate judge would not. In conclusion I would suggest that the person who prepared the article in your paper look up the law on these matters and if he is unable to I do so or to understand it any good ; lawyer would be glad to assist him.
