To Ihe Editor of Tho Bee: The question as to whether or not there shall bo an election In 1313 must be decided by the supreme court, Ijut "before that decision Is made a study of the, provisions of the constitution may bo' interesting and profitable. ' The Constitutional amendment adopted four or five years ago provided for ad ditional members of the supreme conrt and Increased salaries. It provided for the selection of a chief Justice, and since that time Judge Reese' has been that chief Justice. The constitutional amendment adapted In 1912, familiarly called the "biennial election law," provided for trie election ot three Judges of the supreme court In 191B and three In 1918, each to '.hold for six years, and for the election' of a chief Justice In 1920 and very six years there after. Provided, That the member of ,iho su preme court whose term of office expires In January. 1914 (Reese), shall be chief Justice of the supreme court until the expiration of his term of office. This plainly pointed to the expiration of the term of Judge Reese In January. 1914, and, therefore,'' for the election of a successor In the fall of 1913. The next section of the amendment, fixing the time for holding general "elec tions, Is best shown by drawing a paral lel between that amendment and the section of the original constitution It sought t o amend.

But they mado the amelident more specific In one particular, where they declared that there should be an election In 1913 for Judicial officers. Failure to hold an election In 1913 would continue Judge Reese in office until 1920, without the trouble of being re-elected.
