A few days ago the "Record-Unioa' Epoke sharply of the so-called' contract ■of marriage entered into at Toledo by •Rev. Casson and a woman named Commander, which recited that they took one;another for man and wife so long and. only as long as love dwelt in the hearts of both. These people are posing as reformers, and having some prominence as "advanced idealists" <heir action drew new attention to them. The "Record-Union'" spoke of their "marriage" as an outrage upon the law, mere free love; a "marriage" under which either at pleasure could declare himself ?or herself divorced. We took occaslotn to point out that all such con tracts'were immoral, defiant of the law and the usages of organized society, and,' nothing less than infamous, being in disregard of the rights of children, of property, and of the obligations society places upon its units, and destructive of the home upon which sure founda tion the State is builded. The* Riverside "Enterprise," however, lauds/ Casson and his concubine by in ference, sawing that he is a man of high character and is simply putting into practice "a doctrine for which the, world is-not prepared"—very true —and we take it one for which it never will and never should be prepared. We are told that Casson and his woman while llyingyin the face of "a popular preju dice,"' are not guilty of any act which *>n their part will have demoralizing in fluence upon society. We are assured thqit the essence of the proposition laid dawn by Casson is this: When love of itself does not bind maji and woman together, neither law nor religion can in truth, and that either the one or the other seems to, is sacrilege against the purer passiun. Before God, who looks into the hearts «jf people and has no respect for mere forms, the man and woman who do not love each other are already sep arated. In this doctrine, says our esteemed contemporary, "the most careful study can find nothing vicious." But it- is conceded that it is impracticable be cause "the world is not good enough for the gospel." As a finale to this train of reasoning the "Enterprise," •which is careful to disavow advocacy of free love, pays its compliments to the "Record-Union," saying that the intelligence which condemned Casson for his btjutal defiance of the proprie ties and the laws, "mistakes the vi ciousness of - mankind for iniquity in truth which is beyond him." What ever 4s meant by that we do not pre tend to understand, but we do under stand the charge that the "Record- Union" is standing on a moral plane so far below that of Mr. Casson's ideal, that its words will never be able to ascend to the ears for which they are Intended." While that expression is made per sonal, its application is simply to the Ecorlng that this journal gave Casson «nd his woman. From that there will be no retreat. After the champion of the reverend freelover is heard in full, It remains that Casson and his concu bine have made a marriage of con venience and agreed to a divorce of convenience; that they nave centered into unlawful relations; defied the law and the established usages of society, and set themselves up against them on a so-called plane of super-excellence. We concede that love in-1 marriage Should be co-partners, that the first Ehould underlie the other and be its only firm foundation. That far Cas- Eon and his* champion, the "Enter prise," are 'right, but the world was Tight on the same point before them. Carriage > assumption must be accord ing to Some one of the fomulas pre scribed by society that the latter may be protected. from promiscuity and in decency. Once assumed, its obligations fchould,"not be cast off without the sanc tion atod formula prescribed by the law and j countenanced by society, in pro tection to the innocent, and that the whim of the individual shall not be come the law of disorder and infamy. The doctrine advocated by Cassor, and defended by our contemporary-- though with the paradoxical protest (that as it is impracticable it cannot be lurged upon society as a rule of action would unloose the tent hooks of hu manity, set license above order and passion above reason. It would make each individual the judge cf tho right fulness of divorce, and substitute for Ihe courts the whim of satiety, or the persuasion of a more attractive physi cal affinity. It is an infamously low doctrine, and has no idealism above the cranky fancies of perverted intelli gence. The American, Consul General at Hongkong; reports that large capital and many energetic men are awaiting there the pacification of the Philip pines to engage largely in the cultiva tion of Sumatra tobacco in Northern Luzon. Aparri is the port from which the bulk of the Manila tobacco crop to shipped to the great tobacco facto ries In Manila. In Sumatra it has been found that tb* ■oil will produce a crop but once ln seven or eight years, but in Northern Luzon the conditions give much more plentiful crops, and more frequent onea Thus in the provinces of Cagayan, lira beta and , New Viz caya the soil, it is found, will produce a tobacco crop each year, producing a' leaf fifteen inches long. In fact, the soil is too rich when new, and old soil, that which has been' under culti vation for some years, produces a thin, ncr, better and stronger leaf. The wholesale cultivation of Sumatra tobac co in Luzon has never been undertaken because of the restrictive policy under the Spanish regime. It is now known to the experimenters that a single acre of the North Luzon soil will produce from 0,009 to 10,000 plants. When -ihe country is pacified and the American rule firmly re-established, the Consul says the capital and men in waiting will fully develop the tobacco possibili ties of the northern end of the island. But at present the ports are closed, the maikets shut off and life and property are not safe. So we apprehend it wi.l be throughout the island. Under Amer ican control, Luzon will be found to be vastly richer than the most ardent friends of the island have supposed. We will develop wealth and industry there, which under either Spanish or native domination was impossible. THE COST OF THE PHILIPPINES. Numerous Democratic papers, in lifte with the evidently concei ted agreement to assail the administration and the war in the Philippines and to op pose the retention of the islands, that out of such partisan policy the Democ racy may be able to acquire control, dwell upon the enormous cost of the war in the islands, and draw a frightful picture of the sapping of the Treasury in consequence. Th:s is all off of a piece with the attempt to boost a political party into power at the expense of the dignity and assertion of the importance Of the nation. We have already acquired the Philip pines. Every act necessary to give us title has been performed. Before the world and by the calls of sJlemn treaty we are bound to hold the archipelago and establish over the islands a wise and stable government, giving freedom to the people advanced civilization in stead of barbarism, toleration instead of tyranny, education instead of igno rance, enlightenment in place of super stition and liberty instead of slavery. "Freedom," a paper published at Ma nila, having the knowledge of the con ditions and inspired by the true Ameri can spirit, has reasons among others for advocating the retention of the Isl ands which are well woith the consid eration of doubters and those who count the cost in dollars and cents. It says: The simple fact that for these hun dreds and thousands cf years the im mense resources of this part of the world have been hidden should be an all-sufficient reason for our occupying the islands. The fact the great gov j ernments of Europe would be only too glad to take our position here is an- I other reason why we should hold on. | The fact that the natives have been long downtrodden, that they are igno j rant; in many cases savage, and ut | teriy Incapable of protecting themselves j against the rest of the world is an j other, and there are hundreds more. The Philippines will be worth all they cost us, 'and a great deal more. Their acquisition has given us a place in the family of nations we did not before occupy, and which it was our right to I fill. We acquired the islands by for tune of war and whatever the cost their retention will pay us. They constitute the key to a vast trade in the Orient. They give us nav al and coaling stations that are impera tively demanded by our needs; they give us a commanding position in the Pacific in connection with our posses sion of Hawaii and Guam; they are in all ways desirable and they came to us in a manner indicative of duty fore cast by destiny. We are to carry, through their agency, into the Orient American civilization, American ideas of liberty and free government, and American ideas of human right and the uplifting of men. The* fear of the "Pall Mall Gazette" Is not without'reason that if war breaks out between Kngland and the Trans vaal Oom Paul may issue letters of marque and set upon the seas many ships of the enemies of England l to prey upon her commerce. As long as priva teering is not wholly condemned; as long as the Transvaal is not a party to any compact to refrain from privateer ing the Boers may find that resort a most effective weapon against the Brit ish. The world is full of adventurous spirits ready for the loot in it to en gage in privateering and take the chances. The Boers have no ports, no shipping, no commerce upon the seas. In >that direction, therefore, England could not retaliate. The most she could do would be to hang the privateering individuals if she could catch them, re fusing to recognize the letters of war rant issued bj* the Transvaal Govern ment. That she might do and defy the protests of Kruger. Nevertheless, if war follows the present strained rela tions, and the Transvaal people issue letters to privateers English commerce upon the high seas will suffer severely, despite the watchfulness and numerical strength of the English navy. But this is to be said —there are two kinds of privateering; one in which the citi zens of one of the belligerent States sail the seas under its Hag seeking to destroy the commerce of the enemy; the other in which neutrals, persons not parties to the war fit out ships to prey upon the commerce under a letter of marque issued by one of the belligerent. This latter is the odious and detest able order of privateering; the kind condemned by advanced nations, rated very nearly as piracy, and abhored by humane and honorable people. If the Boers avail of privateering, it is this form to which they will commit them selves. Now that the automobiles are coming into general use in the East the name of the machine will be found all too long for the speedy, busy American. The contraction into "auto" will be the order of rush and push presently;. THE BEOOBP-traiOJJ, SACRAMENTO, SATURDAY. JULY 1, 1899. MUST CERTIFY THE PAPERS. SHERMAN GAINS A POINT IN HIS ACTION. Judge Johnson Orders a Writ of Mandate Against, the Sur veyor General. Superior Judge Johnson yesterday rendered a dlcislon in the matter of L. S. Sherman against M. J. jWright as Surveyor-General, granting the appli cation! for a writ of mandate to com pel the defendant to certify certain pa pers in his office relative to certain lands in Inyo county. On the filing of judgment thirty days will be given in which to file a motion for a new trial. The opinion rendered is in full as fol lows: This is an application for a writ of mandate to compel defendant, in his capacity as Surveyor-General and ex offlcio Register of the State Land Office, to certify certain papers in his office, af fecting a contest, to the Superior Court of Inyo county for certain lands cre ated by the receding waters >>f Owen* Lake. It appears that on the 30th of Sep tember, 1803, one Sarah C. F. Wrinkle filed her application to purchase a por tion of the land in question in the State Land Office; on the Bth of February, 1894, her application was approved ar.d a certificate of purchase issued on the 29th"of March, 1894, and on June Bth, 1898, a patent was issued to her there for. It also appears that on the 11th day of December, 1894, one Samuel Levy filed in- said office an application to pur chase the remaining portion of the land in question; that on the 18tb day of March, 1595, said application was ap proved by the proper authority; on May Oth a certificate of purchase was issued, and on the Bth day of June, 1898, a patent was issued to him therefor. In the meantime, on the 11th day of June, lSirT, the plaintiff filed his appli cation in said office to purchase the land embraced in both applications, and at the same time he filed a protest against issuing any evidences cf title to said Levy and Wrinkle, and a de mand to have the matter referred to the proper - court for trial. At the time he filed his application and demand for a contest he paid the fee of $o required for the application, but did not pay the fee of $3 required for referring a contest to court. No de mand, however, was made upon him for the $3, and the same was not paid until February 27th, 189S, when the plaintiff paid the same. Defendant claims that a writ of man date will not lie against him for the reason: First—That the fee of $3 foT referring a contest was not paid; and, Second —That patents having been is sued for the land in controversy, that they are conclusive and a reference could affect no rights in the matter. First— See. 501 P. C. provides ' The Register must charge and collect feas as follows * * * For certifying a contested, case to the District Court, $3. * * * * Sec. 3414 P. C. provides: "When a contest arises concerning the approval of a survey or location before the Sur veyor-General, or concerning a certifi cate of purchase or-other evidence of title before the Register,' the officer be fore whom the contort is made may, when the question involved is as to the survey, or one purely of fact, or wheth er the land applied for is a jjart of the swamp or overflowed lands of the State, or whether it is included within a con firmed grant, the lines of which have been run by authority of law, proceed to hear and determine the same; but when, in the judgment of the officer, a question of law is involved, or whan either party demands a trial in the courts of the State, he mu~i make an order referring the contest to the Dis trict Court of the county in which tha land is situated, and must enter such order in a record book in his office." By Section 3574 P. C. it is provided that when an applicaion to purchase land is made, the applicant shall pay a fee of $5 in advance. By these three sections it will be seen that three distinct duties are devolved upon the Surveyor-General and Regis ter. First—When an application is made to purchase lands he shall eollest $5 in advance, as a prerequisite to filing; and, second, he shall certify, when a demand is made, contests to the proper court for'adjudication; and, third, he shall charge and collect a fee of $3 for cer tifying each contest to the court. As to the first duty he has no volition as to when he is to collect the fee. He must collect in advance. It is made his imperative duty to collect it before he performs any official act whatever. 1 think the law is as equally imperative, as to his duty when a demand for a reference is once made; that is, when the same is filed in his office he has no other alternative but to obey the be hests of the statute and certify the matter for trial to the proper court. It is also imperative upon him that he collect $3 for certifying the case. But the time of collection is left to his sound discretion. He can, if he wishes, give the parties reasonable credit, if he wishes to do so, but he takes all the chances. He is liable on his official bond for all such fees as he fails to collect. (People vs. Gardner, 55 Cal., 304.) It will be borne in mind that prior to the amendment of February 10, 1576, Section 3574 did not contain the words "and no application shall be re ceived, filed or noted in any way, until such fee is paid." The Surveyor Gen eral, Gardner, received some 1,381 ap plications to put chase lands where he failed to collect the fees, to wit: $5 each. The applicants did not lose their rights, but the Supreme Court said in the case just noted that he and Jiis bondsmen were liable. Section 501 above cited provides for a fee of $3, but does not make it obliga tory upon the Register to collect' it before he certifies the case for trial. He is liable to the State for the money if he does not collect it. He should demand the fee of the party who makes' the application" to have the case re ferred. If "he accepts the demand, and does not require the fee, he cannot re fuse to certify; and if he accepts the demand and does not afterward make a demand for the fee, he cannot refuse to certify because the fee is unpaid. He waived the right to collect it as a prerequisite to the reference. It seems to me that this question is on all fours with the case of Lick vs. Madden, 25 Cal., 211. There the Clerk received and filed the proper papers in an action re quisite for the issuance of a writ of attachme»tfthe did not demand the fees but refused* to issue the writ, basing his refusal upon a statute in force at that time as follows: "Any officer may refuse to perform any services in a civil action or proceeding until the fee for such service is paid by the party requiring the service." The court says: "In the understanding of the re spondent, the filing of the preliminary papers, coupled with a request that a writ of attachment may issue, imposes no obligation upon the Clerk, unless the request'is accompanied with a pre sent tender of fees; while in the under standing of the appellant, the obliga tion of the Clerk is perfect without a tender, if prepayment is not demanded. "The controlling words are 'may re fuse.' The Intention was not to pro hibit the Clerk, in a matter of mere personal concern, from rendering offi cial aid on credit. The word 'may,' in the connection in which it stands, is not to be construed as mandatory to the Clerk, but permissive, leaving the al ternative of cash or credit to his own election. Again, the word 'refuse' is used ln contradistinction to silence, or mere omission", or neglect. The distinc tion is one lying between action on the one hand and non-action on the other. If the Clerk, in view of the alterna tives presented to him, makes up his mind to stand upon prepayment, the mental state Is not in itself a refusal of credit. The conclusion of the mind antedates the refusal, and leads to it; but it is neither identical with it nor is it any part of it.* It is only in the event of an announced refusal of credit that the applicant, under the adjust ments of the section, is required to tender. To hold that the silence of the Clerk ia an equivalent antecedent to the duty to tender, would be to inter polate into the section a new and sub stantive provision. The section, in short, confers upon the Clerk a per sonal privilege, which he may claim or waive as he chooses. If he claims it, he should announce it; and if he does not so announce, he must be under stood to have waived it. The statute nowhere provides that the Clerk shall not be obliged to move until his fees, whether asked for or not, have been tendered. Doubtless, under a provision like that, the role of the Clerk would be a passive one altogether. But under the law as it stands, after application for process has been made in due form, something is to be done before any ex hibition pf money is contemplated. The character of the initial Act is clearly defined, and the function of performing it is clearly devolved upon the Clerk." This case is sustained by the case of Tregambo vs. Commanche M. and M. Co., 57 Cal., 506. I do not see that any distinction can be drawn between these cases and the one at bar, because of the fact in these cases the Clerk was entitled to the fees as his compensation, and in this the fees go to the State. Here the officer can collect in advance if he chooses, or he can wait upon the person; as said before he, not the State, takes the chances of non-payment. It was his duty, if he had any fear about the re sult, to have demanded the fees either when the demand was filed or before he issued the order of reference. He never made any demand, and as was said in Lick va Madden, supia, "If he claims it he should have announced it, and if he does not so announce he must be understood to have waived it." Never having claimed the fee, or de manded it, in matter, the Regis ter should have obeyed the law as im posed upon him in Section 344, P. C, and have certified the case to court. Since writing the above, in a sup plementary brief my attention has been called to the case of Davis vs. Hurgren, et al., decided by our Supreme Court in an opinion filed June 13, 1899. This was an appeal from an order of the Superior Court of Sonoma County, de nying plaintiff's motion for a new trial. An examination of the record in the case shows that the facts were as fol lows: On February 12, 1897, a verdict was rendered for defendants. Plaintiff's at torneys mailed a notice of Intention to move for a new trial at Petaluma on February 20th, and the same was re ceived by the clerk of the court at Santa Rosa on February 23, 1897 (the 2Lst was a Sunday and the 22d was "Washington's birthday). The clerk did not tile the notice on the 23d because the fee for filing had not been paid. Three days afterward plaintiff's at torneys Visited Santa Rosa and paid the fee for filing, and, at their request, the clerk indorsed the notice as filed on February 23d. The Superior Court denied the motion for a new trial on the ground that the notice had not been filed in time. This order was affirmed by the Su preme Court, and, in affirming it, that court said: "Section 059 of the Code of Civil Pro cedure provides that a party intending >to move for a new trial must, within ten days after the verdict of the jury, file with the clerk his notice of inten tion. In the case at bar, the ten days expired on the 23d of February. On that day, the appellants sent their no tice of intention to the clerk, but the clerk did not file the same because the fee therefor was not paid, and three days afterward, at the request of the appellants, who then paid the fee, the clerk indorsed it filed February 23d. The Act of March 2S, 1895 (Statutes of 1895,! page 207 et seq.), provides that on the filing of a notice of a motion for a new trial the parties filing, the same must pay to the clerk a fee of $2, and that 'county officers must * * * demand the payment of all fees in civil eases in advance' (p. 272). The notice, therefore, was not filed in time. The mere fact that the clerk received it on the 23d did not constitute a filing; it was not his duty to file it without the fee. He did not file It, and he could not have been compelled to file It on that, day." Section 1 of the Act of March 28, 1895, provides that the county officers mentioned therein "shall charge and collect" the fees therein specified, and that "county officers must * * * de mand the payment of ail fees in civil cases in advance." It will be observed that in that case the statute expressly provides that "on filing- of the motion for a new trial the parties filing the same must pay to the clerk a fee of $2." The payment of the $2 is a part of the requisite re quired to make the act of giving the notice complete, just as much as the act of filing the notice. A concurrence of these two acts is required. The same statute provides that "county of ficers must, and township 6fflee<rs may, demand the payment of all fees in civil cases in advance." These two provi sions of the statute make a detmand upon the party intending to give notice unnecessary. The statute itself is a notice to him that at the time of filing notice that he must pay $2 and that the clerk'must demand the fee in advance. Section 501 of the P. C. does not impose such a condition; as said before the register must charge and collect a fee, no duty is imposed upon him to collect in advance, and 3414 P. C. does not im pose the dtity-upon the contestant to pay in advance or at the time of filing a demand for a reference. He has the right to wait for a demand for the fee before he- 1 can be -with rieglect of performing ate qftHgations, The difference- "between'• ihs conditions.of ihe case cited and" throne' lead's -'me.' to adhere to the -view first formed. ' Second, having failed and neglected to make an order of reference, and hay ing gone forward and Issued a patent for the land, can the defendant take advantage of this fact aw* give it as a reason for not complying with- the law? It would seem to me that it was not in his mouth to Set up such, a de fense. .The plaintiff was entitled to have had the case sent to court before the patent was issued. The patent was teamed in violation of the J»w; it was issued after a demand for a contest had been made to the very officer who is sues the patent. It would seem to me that* it is an elementary principle that the defendant is estopped from plead ing his own wrong by way of avoid ance. The effect or validity of the patent cannot be taken advantage of in this proceeding by the defendant. The right of plaintiff to have the contest referred to court re lates back to" the time demand was -made for a contest, June 11, 1897, and nothing done subsequent to that time by the defendant can affect the plain tiff's rights to a reference. The in ception of this contest is the filing of a demand for a reference. Until this matter was finally disposed of the de "fendant's acts in issuing patents were void. (People vs. Carrick, 51 Cal., 327). This court ha® nothing to do with the title. That is a matter to be set tled in the court when the case comes before it for adjudication. If the pat ent is a bar the court can so determine when the matter reaches that tribunal. The question for this court to deter mine is: Ha® the plaintiff a right to have hls contest referred? It appears that after Levy and Wrinkle filed their applications, he filed his for the same land; he demanded that the same be referred, that the defendant ignored his demand, refused and failed to refer, and subsequently issued patents there for. The Supreme Court says in Peo ple vs. Carrick that his acts are void, in so doing, therefore this court must conclude that it is his duty to refer this contest to the Superior Court of Inyo County for determination and that a writ should issue. applications, he filed his for the same land; he demanded that the same be referred, that the defendant Ignored his demand, refused and failed to refer, and subsequently issued patents there for. The Supreme Court says in Peo ple vs. Carrick that his acts are void, in so doing, therefore this court must conclude that it is his duty to refer this contest to the Superior Court of Inyo County for determination and that a writ should issue. At the hearing of this case certain testimony, both oral and documentary, were offered on the part of plaintiff, to which objections were made. The testimony was taken and the ruling of the court reversed. The testimony, under the views of the court, is admissable and wiH be admitted. Exceptions are ordered to be entered upon the part of defendant, he not be ing in court at the time of filing this opinion. Let the writ issue as prayed for. THE BADGER CRUISE. Adjutant General Seaman* Issues His Orders. Adjutant General Seamans yesterday issued General Order No. 7, calling: for a cruise of the Naval Battalion. The order recites the substance of a letter received by him from the Sec retary of the Navy, under date of June 21st (heretofore published in the "Rec ord-Union"'), which, in accordance with section 2022 of the Political Code, pro vides for a cruise and drill of the Naval Battalion, N. G. C. The general order runs ast follows: "Headquarters First, Second and En gineer Divisions will embark at San Francisco July 23d; the Fifth Division at Eureka, July 25th: the Fourth at Santa Cruz, August 4th; the Sixth at Salita Barbara, August sth; the Third at San Diego, August Gth. "Captain L. H. Turner, commanding the Battalion, is hereby directed to place himself In corrimuirication with the commanding officer of the Badger, upon her arrival in San Francisco, to arrange all the details of the cruise." The allotment of the annual appro priation of the United States will be made in accordance with the number of petty officers and enlisted men who participate in the cruise, for which reason the Adjutant General urges a large attendance.
