To Abotlth Jury Commissioner!
Ily a remarkable coincidence Mr.
Cessna reported from the judiciary
general committee la the house at
Harrlsburg ou Monday night, a bill
repealing ati act which he had drawn
aud of which he secured the passage
immediately after the close of the war.
The bill Is the oue abolishing jury
commissioners in the state. Mr. Cessna
was accorded unanimous permission
to make a personal statement. He ex
plained that he had introduced the
jury commissioner act because the
selection of jurors had come to be
considered a partisan adrautage. Since
then, under the new constitution, there
had been given minority represents
tion ou the boards of county commis
sioners aud the reason for tbe jury
commissioners no longer existed. The
new law will transfer ihe duties of
