At the state election in June the people will be called upon to vote upon an amendment to the state constitution which will be entitled on the official ballot "Tudiciary Amendment." If you vote for this amendment it will mean to increase the judges of the supreme court from three to five, which will entail upon the taxpayers of the state a large expense. It is claimed by those who favor the amendment that there are accumulated upon the docket of the supreme court about 178 cases which have not yet been decided by the court, which delays the cases about one year after the appeal is taken be fore they can be tried. It will be remembered that the number of people who have cases for trial before the courts are very few as compared with the whole num ber of people who pay the taxes, and do not have such cases in court. As the laws now stand, the public expense of conducting the court in trying these cases is nearly all paid by the tax-payers, who have but little or no litiga tion, while the parties whose cases are being tried bears little of that expense, except as he bears his pro rata of general tax ation. The tax-payers cannot afford to incur further expense to facilitate litigation, and especial ly is this so when the legislation is such that it exempts the liti gant from paying the expense caused the public in the trial of his own case, and transfers such expense to the tax-payer who has no cases to try, and who con ducts his business so as to keep it out of the courts. There will be but little gained except the extra expense incured by in creasing tne number 01 judges from three to five, because a large portion of the judges' time is spent in hearing the trial of the cases and determining what decision to make, and in so do ing the whole number sit togeth er. The increase suggested would require five judges to sit spending their time to hear and decide a case instead of three as now. The proper way to relieve the docket of the supreme court is to limit the cases on appeal so that those involving less than 300 or $500 cannot be appealed to the supreme court and furnish the three judges whom we now have with plenty of clerical help so that when the court decides a Case the decision can be quickly reducedfto writing suitable for publication. The reason why the work of the supreme court has accumulated is that until the last legislature the judges re duced their decisions to writing personally and without clerical assistance. The last legislature supplied each judge with a clerk, which has enabled them to gaiu in disposing of the work before them. It is claimed by those who favor this amendment that the work of the supreme court is about two years behind, which is not correct. The records of the court show that there are about 178 cases on the docket to be disposed of, also that the number of cases within the times mentioned have been disposed of as follows: From Oct. 1st, 1897, to Oct, 1st, 1898 180 cases From Oct. 1st, 1898, to Oct. Ist, 1899 174 cases From Oct. 1st, 1899, to April 1st, 1900,... Ill cases From Jan. 1st, 1900, to Apui 1st, laoo... be! cases So that it will be seen that the court within each year for considerable time has been dis posing of as many cases as are now waiting trial; hence, it can not be said that the court is more than one year behind with the work betore it. As suggested, a plentiful supply of efficient cleri cal help will enable the court to catch up with the work. The amendment suggested should not be made. It will be greatly to the best interests of the tax-payers and people of Oregon to vote against it. The Times again begs the ques tion in comparing the cost of tax rolls under B. W. Wilson and Mr. Watters. Mr. Wilson was working- under the fee bill and not under a salary. But clerk Watters is working under a sal ary which should include cost of tax rolls without any tra pay from the county. Watters sot the salar and the ex Mr. the extra pay also, while Mr son got no salary at all. Wil- The Times again attempts to beg the questions involved by comparing Ex-County Clerk Hunter' work with that of Mr. Watters. It will be remembered that Mr Hunter's time of service was un der a democratic administration. He was elected as a democrat, and while he made a good, oblig ing clerk, republicans were not responsible for it. As to the ex pense of Mr. Hunter's term, it cannot well be compared with the few years past, because Mr. Hunter's time was during: the troublous times of the Oregon Pacific Railroad's receivership, while that of Mr. Watters' has continued through several years of very quiet times with corres pondingly little work in the clerk's office. The Times will probably be surprised to learn that Thomas H Tongue has already done all an American citizen could d in the interest of the two republics in South Africa. Every citizen, however, who claims to be only fairly well posted, knows that as long ago as last October M Tongue was one of a number of representatives, senators and judges of the court who petition ed President McKinley, through the New York World, to offer his friendly services in mediation between Great Britain and the republics of the Transvaal and the Orange Free State. Follow in this the president, at the re quest of the Boer government, signified to Great Britain his wil iingness to exercise ins good offices more than any other na tion has done. The Times' write-ups of its candidates read so much like obituaries, that their appearance seems premature. They would be more in order afer election. For Sale.

Cameron, the candidate for sheriff on the republican tick et, has been an honored resident of Corvallis continuously for about twenty years, except the short period when lie con ducted a harness and saddlery business at Eebanon, Einn coun ty, Oregon. He worked for N. P. Briggs for many years at the stand now occupied by Mr. Cam eron, until he concluded to open business on his own account. He went to Eebanon and conducted the same line of business until Mr. Briggs concluded to sell his business in Corvallis at which time Mr. Cameron purchased it where he has since done a pros perous business. Mr. Cameron is so well known as a good, thorough, industrious workman and ever since his business career he has been continuously found at his daily work at his bench, that it seems a waste of time to mention them. Mr. Cameron has been prominently noted for making especially fine and dur able harness which he has had a very fine market for, often sell ing them to go into Eastern Ore gon and other long distances. East but not least, Mr. Cameron is especially qualified to attend to the sheriff's business and to conduct and keep the accounts existing between the sheriff's office and the county. Mr. Cam eron has also been a taxpayer aad a producer of this county for many years, whose property interests and business make him a permanent fixture in the coun ty so far as the material interests of any man can be. The people will make no mistake in voting for Mr. Cameron for sheriff. New Train Service. The double train service to be estab lished between Portland and Chicago April 22nd, in which the O. R. & N., the Union Pacilic and the Oregon Short Line are interested, wilt shorten the through time 11 hours. Train No. 2 leaving Portland at 9:15 a. m., begin ning on the date named, will be known as the Chicago-Portland special. Its equipment will be new, making it fully the equal of any train now in service from the Pacific Coast to ehe East. It will consist of a mail-car, a baggage-car, a library-composite car, a first-class pull man sleeper, a dining-car, two chair cars, and a tourist sleeper. There will be but one change of cars to all eastern points. The full time will be three days through to Chicago, or four days and two hours to New York. The second train, known as No. 6, will leave Portland at 6:20 p. m., con necting at East Portland, with the Southern Pacine's overland train from San Francisco, and will carry through equipment to Chicago via the Union Pa cific and the Chicago & Northeastern, and also the equipment for the Washing ton division of the O.

Dining-car will be furnished for breakfast into Spokane, and for dinner on a corresponding train leaving Spokane at 3 :45 p. in. The new schedule as ar ranged, will supply the most complete service ever furnished on the O.

At this point there is a large interchange of traffic, on account of the various mining districts of Baber county, the Coeur d' Alene, the Bepublic and Kootenai min ing camps; Portland is greatly benefitt ed by this change, in as much as in creased service is given from Eastern Oregon and Idaho.
