SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS
A Chalmers-Detroit Letter
Detroit, Mich,, U. S. A.,
December 7, 1908.
Sales Manager's Office.
. Messrs. E. 0. Hall & Son,
Cor. Fort and King- Sts.,
t Honolulu, T. H.
In reply to your letter ot Novem
ber 23rd, Mr. E. R. Thomas is still
very much interested in our concern.
He is a member of the board of di
lectors, and still lias a large interest
in the concern. When Mr. Hugh
Chalmers bought a certain amount of
Mr. Thomas' stock he became presi
dent of this concern. Mr. Chalmers
was Vice-President and General Man
ager of the National Cash Register
Company for a number of years, and
on account of being so well known
he was made President of the E. R.
Thomas-Detroit Company, and conse
ouently the name was changed, and
the car named after Mr. Chalmers on
account of his standing throughout
the country. This was positively the
only change that was made in the
organization, except such changes as
Mr. Chalmers made to improve the
ou'anization. The Chalmers-Detroit
Forty of today is the same car that
has besn built for the last two years,
4 and which was called the Thomas
IC-H Sales Manager.
"The only man who doesn't praise the Chalmers "30" is a
man who doesn't own one.

amlned and passed upon us well
Tho Htntuto (Sec. 5G) requires that
"All questions as to the validity of any
ballot cast at any election hold under
this Act shall bo decided immediately
and tho opinion of tho majority ot tho
Board of Inspectors of Election at each
polling precinct Bhall be final nnd bind
ing, subject to revision by tho Supreme
Court of tho Territory as hereinafter
provided;" and further (Sec. 57) that
"Any candldato directly Interested"
(It will bo observed that a candldato
Indirectly Interested has not this right)
"or any thirty duly qualified voters of
any Election District may fllo a peti
tion in tho Supremo Court setting forth
any cause or causes why tho decision
ot any Hoard of Inspectors should be
rovcrsed, corroctcd or changed, re-
ferrlng, of courso, to decisions ns to
tho validity of any ballots.
Tho two ways of looking at tho sub
ject then uro (1) that any thirty voters
may dispute tho decision of tho In
spectors in their own district, meaning,
as licit), tliu entire island or uami.
whether any of them know or havo
heard of any fatal Irregularities, or
not; (2) that all must have such
knowledge or Information. In tho for
mer view It was suggested by tho peti
tioners at their first argument that
their case is llko that of a creditors'
bill In which ono or more creditors
represent all others. In tho latter view
i.ll of tho thirty voters and not merely
nno or uny less number than thirty
must combine to present a causo In
order to niiiku a contest. In the for
mer case tho only responsibility In
bringing tho petition Is that thirty vot
ers desire a reversal of tho Inspectors'
decision vthich they bcllovo to be er
loneous. In tho latter case, In order
to obtain reconblderatlou of election
results, emphasis Is placed upon tho
i-ccesslty of a contest or a cause ot
action by each of tho thirty oters In
lespect to Bomo one or more decisions,
which controversy could not exlbt im-
lees each of them had at least heard of
an alleged wrong decision,
Tho petitioners' attorneys say that
thoso whom they represent do not und
erstand why tlio court allows a cotitest
to lie mado and ballots reexamined on
tho petition ot ono person, ho being a
defeated cumlldatc, and not on tho pe
tition of thirty voters. This Is a mis
understanding ot the causes for tho
court places the petitioners on tho
Hiimo basis, npplylng tho samo rulo lo
each In leqtilrllig some fatnl fact with
In tho knowledge or Information of tho
petitioner, wlen ho Is a defeated can
didate, or of tho thlrfty pctltloncm
when they brlng.a petition.
It Is urged by the petitioners that
tho court has no authoilty to ralso the
question as to their knowledge or In
formation, the question not being
inlsod in tho answer. Tho answer,
however, neither admits nor denies the
petitioners' averment of their knowl
edge or Infoimatlon but leaves them
lo Us proof. In a controversy of a
public natiiro tho court would not per
form Its duty to tho public If It did not
require tho status ot the petitioners not
only ns qualified voters but as having
Information nnd belief of their charges
to ho shown befoio haling tho ballot
In tho American cases cited by the
petitioners it Is clearly stated that tho
object ot tho notice of n contest of nn
election Is not to perform tho functoln
of a declqratlon at law but to npprlso
tho opposite party that a contest will
bo mado on the grounds mentioned.
Our stntuto on tho contrary requires
a contest to bo presented by tho pctl
tion. Even In statutes llko that of
Massachusetts permitting any ten vot
ers to obtain u recount of ballots upon
"tho filing of' tho 'proper statement It
writing by ten or moro qualified voters
of tho ward that they have reason to
bollevo that the returns of the ward
are erroneous" (opinion of tho Jus
tlccs, 13G Mnss. 68C), a statement by
ten or moro voters that others than
themselves or that any less numb-.-r
than ten had reason to believe this
would not comply with tho statute.
In Lawrence v. Norreys, 39 L. It.
Cli. D. 213, also cited upon tho claim
ct tho petitioners that It would bo nn
puthorlzed practice for a court- of
equity to question tho truth of tho
averment In their petition of their In
tormatlon and belief InBtcad of leaving
them to put In their entire rase, Stlrl
Ing, J., said upon this subject: "Now,
as to that, It Is undoubtedly true that
ns a rulo a plaintiff Is allowed In this
Court to Btate his case In the first In-
Ftancc without In any way verifying
It by oath; and tho Court ought to bo
blow, ns I conceive, when n plaintiff
bona fide brings forward a case, In
shutting him out from stating It, and
from trying It In the manner provided
by law," (p. 225,) Upon appeal, how
ever, this ruling waa reversed, tho ap
pollato court says (Cotton, L. J.):
"Hut tliu Jurisdiction ot tho Court to
provent Us process belngnbusecl, und
to provent actions being brought
which nro mero vexation, Is original
and does not depend! on tho general
ordors of the 'Court. Tho
plaintiff has not, In my opinion, shewn
that he has arty reasonable ground for
making those allegations of fraud, and
tho conclusion which t draw Is, that
they were made without any reason
able ground for making them." (p.
Tho Inquiry mado by the court hi
this case was Justified by precedent ns
well as upon principle.
a majority oi tnc court nnd no
ground for reversing tho former ruling
which Is accordingly am lined.
