The question which was asked by
Justice Wilder jesterday afternoon:
"Is It necessary that at least thirty
retltlonors have knowledge of any
one point on' Willi li it Is sought to In
validate the election?" was then tak
en up. This point was not brought
ou(tby any of the a((orues In argu
ing the case, but was asked expressly
by Justice Wilder It was on this
very technical point, too, that the
fate of the Ma; orally contest was de
cided. llotli Davis nnd liobertsoit spoke at
length, showing how absurd It would
be to make, ns a matter of practise, a
rule which would compel at least
tint ty duly qualltied voters or one
election district to have definite know
ledge of at least one, uu' the same,
alleged Irregularity In the conduct
of an election. Uobertson brought
out the point, us the statute had not
provided for this point as a mdtter
of law, If'would certainly not be
right for the Supreme Court to make
It a matter of pructjce In the courts.
It was, bruughti'out that one voter
might have actual and personal know
ledge of crooked work at the polls",
but the Idea that thirty voters should
also see this particular act and be as
much assured of the actual fact as
I the first man. If carried out, would
maxe me unnging ot a contest well
nigh Impossible. In Ills dissenting
opinion Judge De Holt afluded to this
point, and coincided wltlf the nrgu
ment of tho Republican uttortiejB.
unlet justice llartwell said. In
I part, as follows: "The opinion of
the Court that Is, the majority of
the Court is that vthe petition bet
dismissed on the grounds that, along
a Hit the rulings which hate been
made on questions brought up yes
terday, It appears from the testimony
of the petitioners that there were not
thirty of them having knowledge
with reference to Irregularities In
any one voting precinct. The opln-
lion of the Court on this matter will
i be prepared and carefully filled out
"There are a few considerations
which I will dwell on first, that the
Australian ballot system, which has
been adopted aud In use In the States
and Territories for the past twenty
years, has accomplished the end
which was Intended, In that It pre
sents the easy exercise of coercion ot
oters and cheating In elections to a
great extent, and It Is a significant
fact that In election contests tried
before this court. In no Instance has
potual fraud been shown, iib placed
In contradistinction with legal fraud.
Opportunities still remain and al
ways will remain as long as there
Is human nature there will be honest
mistakes, counting wrongly or Im
properly rejecting or accepting bal-loti.

nity is the result accepted by the los
