A TAX-PAYER’S SUIT.
A LENGTHY OPINION AS TO HIS RIGHTS. The Agricultural College Case Dis missed by the Supreme Court —Judge Hoyt Disseuts. [Continued from ThursqulNoV- 12'] We are inclined to the opinion that the right of a resident tax-payer to invoke the interposition of a court of Lequity to Compel ofﬁcers of a mumcrpal corporation to do their duty, or restrain them from} illegally increasing the burden of taxation ‘ by squandering the public funds of a cor poration, has received the great weight of at least modern authority. The doctrine on the subject Was thus laid down by Judge Field of the supreme court of the United States: Of the right of resi dent tax-payers to invoke the interposition ofa court ofequity to prevent an illegal dis position of moneys of the county or the il legal creation of a debt which they, in com mon With other property holders of the county, may otherwise be compelled to pay there is at this day no serious question. It Will be observed, however, that this case falls short of asserting that doctrine claim ed here by the respondent that courts of equity will restrain the action of state of— ﬁcers in matters of public concern on the petition of ataxpayer who shows no spe cial interest, nor Will the language or an giinient of the court bear any such con struction. On the other hand, it is based on relationship of the taxpayer to muni cipal corporations. In all cases reported the restraining order has been asked against the county, town. city or district ofﬁcer. It is argued by the respondent that not withstanding the absence ot authority, there is no difference in principle between restraining county ofﬁcers and state of ficers in matters of public concern, on the prayer of a taxpayer. The principle upon which the doctrine in regard to municipal, or quasi municipal, corporations is based, flows from its analogy to a well settled doc trine equity governing private Corporations, where each stockholder has an interest in the property of the corporation, and may interfere to protect the corporation funds from the illegal or fraudulent acts of its of ficers, but it is reasoning that it cannot ap ply to a state government. As the fallacy of a proposition can best be shown by distorting it, we ma presume that if one of the departments otyt-he state government can be suspended at the iii stance ofa private citizen, who has not got more than a community interest in a mat ter which concerns the general public, that every department of state can be suspended at the same time, and the whole machinery of government stopped, and the very existence of the state, so far as the exercise of its functionsis concerned, destroyed. Surely such a theory of prac tice is not in harmony with the genius of our government, not will authority sanc tion nor public policy permit the a; option of a rule which will authorize any number of volunteers who may, rightfully or wrongfullv, interpret the laws different from the interpretation put upon them by ofﬁcers of the state, to paralyze for a time every or any branch of state government. It seems to us that there is a difference in principle, and there might be a very great difference in results; and probable results are what the policy of law is based upon. To prevent just such results, and to protect the interests of the public, the statute has provided for an election by tax— payers of an ofﬁcer, the attorney-general, who is especially clothed with authority to institute proceedings of this kind, In the act creating the ofﬁce of attorney-general, and deﬁning his duties in the law of 1887-8, it is provided. among other things, that it is his duty to force the proper application offuiids appropriated to the public institu tions of the territory; nor do we under stand that any of the provisions of that chapter have been repea ed by subsequent enactments of the state. The constitution provides that all laws in force at the time of its adoption shall remain in force until their repeal; and there is nothing in the provisions of the act entitled “An act in relation to attor neys,” laws of 1891, which repeals any of the ,provisions of the act of 1887-88. It might as well be held that, all the territo rial acts ‘in relation to prosecuting attor neys have been repealed by the sanieact. . The law, then, haying provided an ofﬁcer for an especial duty, it is the better policy to submit each litigation to his guidance. This court, untrammeled by precedent or authority in laying down a po icty for this state, deems it safer to regulate the institut ing of suits involving the disposition of the revenue of the state, where no private interests are involved, to the judgment and discretion of the Attorney general. With this view of the case, it is not necessary to examine other alleged errors. The de— murres should have been sustained. The judgment is therefore reversed, and as the demurrer goes to the life of the complaint, the case is dismissed. Judge Dunbar wrote the opinion and all the judges concurred except Judge Hoyt, who dissents. (To be continued.) THE SOLDIEBS’ HOME. It is a Comfortable Place for the Old Veterans. _ John Keats, in the Goldendale Sentinel, tells of a visit to the soldiers’ home of the state at Orting. He says: I went there to visit John Pederson. I found Comrade Pe' derson in fairly good health, but somewhat lame. He is Well satisﬁed with the home. I was introduced to the commander. That gentleman welcomed me to the home, and to make an inspection of the same and eat 'dinner with them, which invitation was accepted. The dinner was good, consisting of beef, pork, potatoes, cabbage, beans, bread, butter and good pudding, all in great abundance. Thinking that it might be an extra dinner I asked several of the comrades if they Ihad such dinners every day. They said yes, and that the board was good all the time, and that the com mander was very kind to them. They all praised him. I went through the home, upstairs and down. I assure you (every thing was in apple pie order. There are smoking rooms and a reading room where ‘ the old vets can sit and read at their sweet ‘ will. I went through the bed rooms and‘ found them good, with nice beds with verK clean bed-clothes. While walking throug ‘ the bed rooms Comrade Pederson took me by the arm to his bed and told me with warmth and emotion that the ladies of Goldendale had presented him with those bed clothes. I assure you that he is very grateful to the ladies for their generous gift. The home is heated all through with heaters in the basement. Also each room on the ﬁrst ﬂoor has ﬁre grates in them. For myself, and I think all the old soldiers ought to be grateful to the state of Wash ington for providing so good a home for us in case we are unfortunate and needy.
