Attorneys Visit Jail.

the defense, and LecOmpto Davis, of

coniM- of the afternoon, Tbey came
away, and later returned, accompanied
"by District Attorney John D. Fred
ericks. Observers waited tor tbo al
inosi inevitable addition to the partj
b a official stenographer.
"There'll bo no statement," waa tbe
word which went anuiD-J. linniors of
a complete readjustment of tbe situa

Tln names ,,f the witnesses were at

coai over a single Bbcel of paper bear
iug perhaps two hundred words.
The brothers nodded to Jailor Gal
lagher and filed back into t hoi r cells,
alter saying goodbye to the attorneys.
Tbe limited scope ot the confession
aroused much excited debate tonight.
While u was assumed thai nothing rise
was suggested at the tune the confes
sion was made, ii was questioned
whether tbia was all tbe state had or
pceted to obtain.
There was talk also regarding its in
fluencc on furthci prosecutions. Tbe

No Arrests at Present.
There remained, nevertheless, a wide

meager confession, if not a disappoint

ccrned, was uoi far lesr. than bad been
hoped for Ln other quarters in icw
of tbe uation-widc nspoci of the situa

In ibis connection Fredericks

NEW ELECTION I
LI ISSUE IS
Arguments on Constitution
ality Made Before Highest
Tribunal of State by
CLAIM RESTRICTION I
OF VOTERS' CHOICE
Upholders of Provision Insist
Blanks on Ballot Where
Names May Be Written
TUB question of the const It utlonaj -it'.-
of the new commlnelon form
of government law la before the
supreme court. The case was
submitted yesterday after tbe
presentation of arguments by counsel and !
the filing of lists of authorities for the
convenience and assistance of the court.
The question of the validity of the new
law was argued by Sorcn X. Christen -sen,
who represents those who maintain
that the act is unconstitutional, and by
. M. Alllsoji. Jr., representing the
mayor-elect and generally those who hold.
that the law Is sound.
The matter went before the supreme
court on a general demurrer to the pe
tition flied by Mayor-elect S. C. Park, in
which the mayor-elect asks for an al
ternative writ of mandate directing the
city recorder to issue to him a certificate
o? election, In accordance with the or
der of the city council, an act which the
city recorder refused to perform under
the terms of an agreement between coun
sel i order thai a moans might be pro
vided properly to bring the question be
fore the supreme court.
Basis of Contest.
The constitutional provision npon
which the matter waa submitted is sec
tion 2 of article 1 of the state constitu
tion which gives the right of the ex
ercise of the election franchise The
contention of those who seek to break
the new law Is that, under the method M
provided by the new act, ihe right of the 9
voter is abridged, for the reason that, in I
at least two places, the law sa'6 that
only the names if the candidate? re- H
cclving the highest number of votes at
ihe primary "shall be placed on the bal" I
lot ' to be used at the election proper.
It was the contention of Mr Christen- H
sen that this language should bo con-
B rued literally and that neither an of- H
Quia nor the voter himself had the right I
to place any other name on the ballot.
Mr. .lllson contended that statutory en-
actments covering the operation of the
Australian ballot system expressly pro- I
vlded thai blank spaces must be pro- H
vlded for the writing In of names 'n .ase jl
the voter docs not wish to vote for the H
candidates whose names arc printed. H
This provision, l- a i ' 1 Mr. Allison, ha'' fl
been made by the city recorder In the ,H
municipal election, and while tbe new
law did not expressly direct him to pro- H
Vide blank spaces, It did not prohibit H
him from so doing, and therefore In pro- H
vidlng the blank spaces the recorder had H
followed the statutory enactments and H
thus had given the elector the otiportu- H
nlty to vote for any person he might H
desire to favoi with his ballot. H
Mr. ChrJatonsen maintained that, the
Law enacted last winter repealed the H
statutes previously in effect, by impli-
I cation, and that the new law changed the H
entire system Of government and the
I method of electing officer?.
Enters Demurrer. H
When the caso wat called Mr. Chria- !
tenaen announced that he would enter
a crneia demurrer to the petition. He H
then read the text of the petition filed H
by Mr. Pa.rk and read the scnon of the
constitution upon which be b3?ed hia H
case. That section reads a? follows:
'.'Sec. -' (art. 4). Livery citizen of the
