A TAX-PAYER’S SUIT.
A LENGTHY OPINION AS TO HIS
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,
(To be continued.)
THE SOLDIEBS’ HOME.
It is a Comfortable Place for the Old
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.
