DAILY EAST ORJBt.ONIAN, PENDLETON, OREGON. MONDAY, APRIL 13, 1908. PAGE 1C1 WILL VOTE FOR BEAN PLAN TO HAVE A NON PARTISAN JUDICIARY Under the Proposed Constitution! Amendment Two Political Parties Are to lie Represented on Uie Su preme Bench Democrats Will Pay High Compliment to Justice R. 6 Roan by Writing Ills Name on the Uollot at the Primaries on April 17. The following clrculor letter from Alex Sweek, chairman of the Oregon democratic state centrul committee urging democrats to vote for Justice Robert 8. Bean of the supreme court to succeed himself, In order to secure a non-partisan supreme court under the proposed amendment to the state constitution The letter Is as follows: Portland, Ore., April II, 1808 Dear Sir: At the June election the proposed amendment to our state constitution will be voted upon and probably adopted, by which the Jqus tlces of the supreme Court will be in creased from three to five, and the two additional Justices will be select ed at the November election. At a meeting of the democratic state central committee, held In Port land, January 18, 1908, by a unani mous vote a resolution was adopted declaring In favor of making the Ju diciary of the state non-partisan, thereby carrying out the plan Initiat ed by Governor Chamberlain of se lecting men for the various Jurlclal offices with reference to their quali fication, regardless of their political affiliations. Under this resolution, Messrs. W. H. Holmes of Salem, J. K. Weather ford of Albany, and N. A. Peery of Portland, all prominent attorneys and well known democruts, were appoint ed, as a committee, to look Into the question, and to determine upon the best method of carrying the spirit of this resolution Into effect,- After a full Investigation of the subject this committeo has reported In favor of electing the udlclary In such a manner as to finally Insure a proportional representation of each of the political purties upon the bench, and have decided ha Mr. Chief Justice Beau should be nomi nated by all parties to succeed him self. Ho Is the only nominee of the re publican party, and his high sanding aH a Jurist, and eminent standing as a citizen make It fitting and udvlsable that the democratic party of Oregon not only offer no opposition to hla nomination, but as evidence of their sincerity, and to Insure his election,, place his name on their ticket as well Such course will arouse the people to the propriety of having a nonpar tisan Judiciary. After the principle Is once established the republicans of the state will have an opportunity of placing themselves on record in fa vor of this movement at the coming November election, when It is prob able that under the proposed amend ment tow now Justices will have to be selected by the people to succeed the two commissioners, now aiding and. In effect, constituting a part of the court. For these reasons no name will be printed on the democratic ballot to be used at the primaries on April, 17, and a blank will be left In which to write the name of the person to be nominated. In conformity to the wishes Of the democratic state and sub-committees, you are requested to wolte. and to cause all your democrat ic friends to write in this blank the name of Hon. Robert 8. Bean, of Lane county, placing an X before the name, thus: "For Justice of the Supreme Court, Vote for one." X Robert S Bean, of Lane County. In this manner his nomination by both parties, as well as his election, will be assured. We will then trust to the good JudRrtient and fairness of the people of the state to see at the election In November next, that of the five men who occupy the supreme bench not more than three of them shall be of the same political party, thereby assuring the nonpartlsanshlp of that court. This Is the effect of the course adopted In Massachusetts and New York, with the result that the appellate courts of those states occupy the foremost rank among the highest courts of the various states. Very sincerely yours, ALEX SWEEK. Chairman Democratic State Central Committee. tlculars of the voyage, from the Co lumbia river. Captain Crowe Is In structed to forward the purse to the winner when the completion of tlm passages has been officially reported, The Celbum will clear for Queens town with a cargo of wheat, while the Jordanhlll will call at the same port bound for Knglund with a lum ber shipment. Laden with lumber, the Acme will go to New York. It Is claimed that It takes Just as long as It does to Europe. Hence if she is the first to complete the voyage her skipper will be declared the winner. The trio are completing their car goes and will be ready to sail about the same time If one should get two or three days the start of the others, that fact will be taken Into consider ation. In other words, the ships that Is out the least number of days will carry off the prize. Each of the big craft Is considered speedy, and the result of the 14,000 mllo race will be awaited with una bated Interest by local mariners. A few years ago Captain McKay took the Acme from Hongkong to Balti more In 90 duys, a voyage which usu ully occupies four months. The Jordanhlll has made a num ber of rattling passages from the Pa cific coast to the United Kingdom, while the Celtlcburn Is regarded as a marvel, when It comes to cutting through the bounding seas.
