The court held, In effect, that Jiooher had a right to collect fees from the county for services rendered suite eases wh.ile acting as ex-uf- llcin justice uf thirpcfu-u. the ouster proceeding was brought a few weeks ago Judge liooher sent a letter to the county commissioners, accompanied by a re- fund of the fees collected, anil ac- knowledging thru he was not entitle! In them. Yesterday he created sur- prise by claiming that lie did not ap- prove of the letter, but signed it bo- was asked to sign It. and without giving It proper consldenuinn. The (luestion that may now claim sonm "f his attention is how to got back the money he lurm-d over to tin; county under the belief that he was not en- titled to it. Attorneys and Nolan will im- mediately the supremo court for an order compelling .Smith to suntinarlly remove Hooher from of- fice, In accordance with the facts ad- mitted In the case and the law as ap- plied to them. The petition will prob- ably he presented to the supreme court today and some decision may be pbtalned within a week. Under the law of the state the coun- ty pays to justices of the peace not to exceed J5UO a year for acting as ex- amining magistrates In state cases, like cases of vagrancy, petty larceny, etc., and in lIHil a rule was established by the county commissioners to pay the same sum to the police judge for smllar services while acting as ex- ofllclo justice of the peace. All police judges since that time have collected the fee at the ni.to of S-U.G't a month. The ouster proceeding brought" against Uooher by Mr. under section 3.2-11 of the revised codes, which relate.1: to the compensation of police Judge, which must be fixed by ordi- nance at not exceeding jL'.Ono a year, tl'.p salary that Is paid In Unite, the section concluding as follows: HJIKI.M of Acennntloii. "In all criminal actions or proceed- ings arising under the criminal laws of the state when acting as a justice of the pca-.v or committing magistrals, he must receive nu compensation what- ever." Attorneys lloote and Xolan, repre- senting tile accuser, have maintained lhat "no compensation whatever" meant what It said, and that und'r decisions by the supreme court of Mon- tana a judgmenl of ouster had to be ?ntered whether the police judge acted or Ignorantly. if it were shown that the fee.s had been col- lee.ted. The Ir.w says siK-h a proceed- ing must he heard In a summary man- ner, and if the charges are sustained, a judgment must be given depriving the accused of his olllce. Judge Smith, on demand of the at- torneys for the accused, called a jury to sit In an advisory eu-iiacSty. and for nearly three days the Jury ami court llstene.l patiently to arguments and oratory. At the conclusion of the trial yesterday the attorneys agreed on the facts so that the ease was tMton from the jury, and was de- TIU'ST IXdtUllY 'I'MM.S ASTOU.MMXG STOIIV OF TUB PANIC DAYS.

TARIFF AND OTHER THINGS TO BEJAKEN.UP LATER Washington, Nov. 28. -President Taft's third annual message, which will go to congress Tuesday, will be de- voted to the trust question. The mes- sage contains from to words and, with the exception of a few ref- erences to other subjects, tho message deals entirely with corporations. Details of the message will not be made public tonight, it is understood; but federal incorporation as outlineM by Mr. Taft two years ago, was sug- gested as a method for the solution of the trust problem. The president has indicated his aversion to amendment of the Sherman anti-trust act, and from his talks with callers tho inference drawn tonight that there is no suggestion of such amendment in the message. "I've put all my cffgs in one tlie president said. In sending an annual message to congress 'devoted to one subject alone, the president is following the. prece- dent established by President Cleve- land when ho sent his famous tariff message to congress in 1S87. Later on, Mr. Taft will send special messages to congress dealing with important sub- jects. The president intends to discuss the tariff in a message .to be written after Dec. The tariff board, it was said tonight, will not ho able to make. Ha report on the wool and cotton schcM- ules until that time. Conservation, including the develop- ment of Alnslia. will be, dealt with in a Liter message. Mr. Taft to submit reports of the postal committee, the railway securities commission, tho economy and efllciency committee, before the holiday adjournment of congress. The trust message was revised dually by the cabinet today. "Owing to tho length of the session there were many rumors that there, hud been a serious disagreement in Mr. Tuft's nfflcial family, These worn do- nte'd by n majority of the cabinet and by the president himself. Most of the points in the message had been gone over before, and today's session hnd to do more with phraseology, It was said, than with n definite policy. MASONIC EDITOR GTII.TV. Boston, Nov.
