President Taf t in his great Chicago speech on the reform in our courts stated that the spirit of delay and technicality pervades it all from top to bottom. Federal courts, state courts and petty courts, criminal law, equity and probate. From the day the first papers in a civil or an indictment in a criminal case are filed until the final disposition of it 3ears afterward the procedure is one continuous suc cession of needless delays and time frittered away and decisions based upon immaterial technicalities.

On Qnminv :ill the Denny brothers and listers in the county at present Hod The court, lawyers, jurors and wit nesses came in on the morning run of the Interurban railroad, and every thing was found read' made so by Clerk Cook, and Sheriff McNulty and his deputy, Geo. Gelvin. Sheriff Mc Nulty had his two sons, Elby, age IT, and Loyd, age 15, sworn in as depu ties, and beyond doubt tney are the two voungest deputy sheriffs in the state. Judge Ellison at once put things to grinding. The judge is now within a few months of being 57 years of age, He belongs to a family of lawyers. His father was an able lawyer and was judge of the old 27th circuit, and his brother Andrew for years was judge of the Kirksville circuit, and his brother James is a member of the Kansas City Court of Appeals. Owing to the illness of Judge Gal latin Craig, he was appointed to fill the vacancy by Governor Dockery in September, 1003, and In 1901 he was elected to the oillce, which he has so acceptably filled, To us it seems he has made one of the best judges this circuit has ever had. He is an able lawyer, pushes the business of the court right along, giving all justice and a fair deal in court. The jury is composed of the follow ing: Bigelow J, O. Ilinkle. BentonT. P. Davis, J.

John Stokes was unable to be present in court up to our going to press, and his absence was regretted by all the court, liti gants and lookers-on. His absence was like taking off the fly-wheel of an electric dvnamo. It is to be hoped he will materialize before court adjourns. Tim stnr.kwell bovs. Earl and Er- iipsI.

Oregon is a beautifully situated, healthy, progressive, moral, religious city," free from disease and dens of vice, temptation and dissipation a fit place in which to spend the four best years of your youth. 3. A strong school spirit pervades the entire community. This insures the best school. It is easy to get the "Study" habit in such a community. 4. The school is fully equipped with a neat and commodious building, well kept, and supplied with libraries, laboratories, study hall and recitation rooms. 5. A complete and practical course of study is provided, comprising five courses with standard bases and some electives, and offering 21 units all ap proved, both by the State and the University. . 6. Our teachers are qualified, courteous and faithful.

The pupil who does not keep up in scholarship is barred from the games. 9 Money, time and labor invested in a four years' course in the Oregon High School is one of the best and safest investments a young man or a young woman can make. It yields a large return with ever increasing dividends. 10 A diploma from the Oregon High School means something in culture and knowledge and has behind it the reputation of a school that has always made good. This is the standard we have- set for you and the ideal: we trust yow will set for yonrselves. Write for catalogue to C. D. ZOOK, Pres. J. T. THATCHER, Setfy. . M. BROOKS, Sop't. , Conditions Should Be Changed. President Taft believes that the Su preme court will' sustain the lower court in the Standard Oil case deci sion. He also believes that if the spirit of this decision is carried out it I will mean the dissolution of practi : callj' every great trust in the country. He also believes that the effect of this 1 wholesale dissolution would be to ! brinj,' on a financial panic. ' The President is probably correct in each one of his conclusions.- He is also probably correct in concluding ; that a decision that will dissolve the Standard Oil Company will dissolve the steel trust and all the rest of the I great trusts because they are built on the same plan as the Standard. He is probably correct in thinking that the effect of such a dissolution would bring on a financial panic and that a vast number of innocent people would be badly hurt. This is enough to make every pat riotic American citizen do a good deal of hard thinking. Conditions are cer tainly not what they ought to be when great combinations cannot be made to obey the law w ithout con vulsing the whole country with a financial panic. If the time has come when a trust cannot be made to obey the law without bringing on a panic, a great many thoughtful men will conclude'tliat it is about time for the government to take charge of that business and run it in the interest of the whole people. It is not a healthy thing when the creator doesn't dare to correct the thing that has been created.

A court decision has lately been rendered in Massachusetts on what constitutes a subscriber. The judge firmly believed that the man who re ceived the paper, although he never subscribed for itT is entitled to pay. James Thompson moved, and "VV ill iam Robinson took immediate pos session and received and accepted a weekly newspaper tbat was dettvered to him through the mails every week. The good-natured editor sent ac counts frequently, bin no attention was paid to them by Mr. Robinson. Finally there was a day of reckon ing. Robinson had received the paper for some time, he informed the col lector, but he said that be never sub scribed and declined to pay for it. The judge personally qustioned th defendant rwlio said that he had read and made use of it and was receiving: the accountsr which were frequently inclosed m the paper. Judgment was rendered in favor of the newspaper. The judge was se vere in his criticism of people who are receiving papers and do mot think it- worth while to pay for what they receive and? make use of. It is an act of dishonesty, he said. One should acquaint the- publisher and pay for whatever numbers lie receives Ex change. . J. J. Haines, onthe Adolpfc Henri farm near Forbes, has a lot of fine grapes for sale-. Mrs. Chas.
