ROWAN KNOCKED OUT.
TOMMY MAKE ROOM FOR FORRES TER, THAT'S A LITTLE MAN. Judße MeKinley Decides in Favor of the Republican Candidate For Supervisor. The Points of the Decision. Judge MeKinley yesterday morning handed down a decision in the contested case of Thomas E. Rowan, contestant, against E. A. Forrester, respondent, in favor of E. A. Forrester. The decision is a very lengthy one. The main fea tures of it are herewith given : This is a special proceeding contesting the election of respondent to the office of supervisor of the county of Los An geles. According to the official returns as canvassed by the board of supervisors the respondent, Forrester, received a majority of seventy-nine over contest ant, and was declared elected. The bal lots introduced in evidence and re counted by the court, showed a majority for contestant of seventeen. In this case the question of the iden tity of the ballots is practically the only one to be determined by the court in order to reach a determination of the main issue. The rule is well settled throughout the United States, and the great difficulty always is to apply it to the particular focts. and the modes of handling and keeping ballots are subject to almost in- | finite variations; and, as a result, the j cases are very dissimilar, and this one varies in a considerable degree from any j which I have been able to find in the re ports. The rule with regard to identity has j been, however, made very strict, and j clear proof required that they have not j been tampered with or exposed to the handling of unauthorized persons, or alteration. . . . The necessity for the preservation of the purity of the elective franchise and a fair counting of the votes when cast has filled ourstatutc books with enactments for that purpose, but the best genius of our lawmakers has heretofore been unable to devise safeguards as rapidly as the ingenuity of persons interested has found means for their evasion and violation. . . . Another reason for a very stringent rule as to the preservation of the bal lots unexposed to danger of alteration is that in very rare cases can the evi dence go further on the part of those claiming that the ballots are not iden tical, than to the point of showing that they have been exposed to opportunity for change. . . . It is, therefore, clear that the burden rests upon the contestant to prove the identity of the ballots offered in evi dence and recounted, that they have not been tampered with, and have not been kept in a manner or place which would expose them to the handling of unauthorized patties, or io danger of alteration. The exact degree of care which must be shown will, of course, depend upon the circumstances of each particular case, and their weight as evi dence upon the showing made by the opposing party tending to prove that they have been changed. The evidence shows that upon receipt of the ballots on the evening of the elec tion they were first placed in what is known as the criminal room, to the door of which there are but five keys, four in the hands of the clerk and his depu ties, and one in those of the district at torney, and it is very clear that the ballots were not tampered with while they remained in that room. But a day or two alter the election the ballots were removed to a cupboard in a room known as the registration room, situated on the upper floor of the court house building, and not in actual use by the clerk or other persons during the time that the ballots remained thete —a period of more than a month —except that it was occupied on a few occasions by experts employed by the grand jury. This room was infrequently visited by the clerk and his deputies, there being no occasion to go there except for refer ence, rather infrequently required,to the original registration certificates; and the only deputy who testifies that he visited it during the time the bailots were kept there was able to recall but three or four specific instances. From the evidence it would appear that the door was un locked during the day time, and it does not appear to have been locked by the clerk at night, but it seems to have been the custom of the janitor and watchman to lock the inside doors at night. The lock upon thisdoor was an ordinary lock, of the kind commonly called Yale lock, having a fiat key. Upon one side the room is separated from those adjacent by a board partition running to the ceil ing; upon the other side by a partition about nine feet in height, leaving an open space above it of six feet or more, and separating this room from what is known as the copying room of the re corder's office; which, in turn, is sepa rated from the street by twe-doors, one an outside stair door, which the watch man testified he was in the habit of locking at 'J or 10 o'clock in the evening, if deputiet remained in the building un til that late an hour. The evidence does not disclose the number of persons car rying keys to the other door, opening directly into the copying room, but one key seems to have hung in another small room called the comparing room. And the record is entirely silent as to how many persons had keys to the com paring room. It seems, however, from the evidence that all of the deputies in the offices about the courthouse had keys, enabling them to enter into some portion of the building if the outside stair doors were not locked. . . . The evidence shows that the cup board in which the ballots were placed was a common redwood case, having upon it a Yale lock with a small, flat key, and that no person had keys' in tended for that lock except the deputy who had charge of tho ballots; but the lock was of a character that might easily be picked by a person having any skill in that sort of work, or be opened by a key which would happen to tit it. It further appears that there were two doors to the portion of the cupboard in which the ballots were kept, closing together, the bolt of the lock passing a very short distance into the other mor tised door, and that the mortised door is fastened by a spring catch; and the doors might be pushed to, close enough to lock, and if the catch did not drop in place the doors could be pulled open, and afterwards pushed to tightly, and would appear to be securely locked. . . . The packages in which the ballots were sealed were constructed of heavy manilla paper, lined with muslin, with a gummed flap at one end for sealing. The election officers all complied with the law, and wrote their names across the seal. But it was very apparent from examination of tho packages and those which were opened and again closed in the presence of the court that there would be no difficulty whatever In opening a package and afterwards Heal ing it co tfiat it. would bo impossible to THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 25, 1890. determine whether It had been opened after having been first sealed. There would also be no difficulty in taking out ballots or in substituting others, and it would be impossible to determine which were the original ballots, and which those substituted. . . . The only substantial .obstacle, there fore, preventing a manipulation of the ballots by any of the numerous persons having access to the courthouse, or even by others, for the courthouse is admit tedly insecure, would practically be the lock on the cupboard door. The evidence of the custody of the ballots might be sufficient to make a prima facie showing of their identity, in the absence of rebutting testimony. But the evidence shows that, in order to make the change shown by the recount, it is necessary to believe that in the thirty-sixth precinct the number of straight Republican and straight Demo cratic votes was reversed by the election board in entering the same upon the tally sheet. The returns show 57 straight Republican votes and 48 straight Demo cratic votes. The recount shows 44 straight Republican votes and 56 Straight Democratic votes. It is not claimed that there was any willful misconduct on the part of the election board; and the board is shown to have been com posed of competent and careful men, each party being represented, as re quired by law, by three persons. The election officers in that district were Frank Walker, H. T. Newell and a Mr McCauley, Republicans; William T. Jeffreys, R. S. Wnodsides audi. B. Dock weiler, Democrats. They were examined by the court, and all testified that they thought they had counted tiie ballots correctly and made the proper return —evidence not going very much further than their sworn re turn, except that if a mistake had been made by reversing the number in enter ing them upon the tally sheet some ot" the board would probably recognize it when their attention was called to the matter. Some members of the board testified more positively upon the matter. Wood side, one of the Democratic representa tives of the board, testified that he ex amined the ballots as they were counted, saw that they were counted correctly, ami was positive that the Democratic straight vote was less tWfc.ii the Repub lican straight vote, and his recollection was that the Republican straight vote was fifty odd and the Democratic forty odd. The testimony of W. W 7 . Robinson, P. A. Stanton, I. B. Newton, A. O. Blake, C. Galpin, C. M. linker, Arthur Bray, F. V. Bell and J. J. Flannagan is referred to at length in Judge McKinley's decision. The decision concludes as follows: The recount snows the following errors against Rowan: Precinct 27, 10 votes; precinct 28, 10; precinct 29, 1; precinct DO, 8; precinct 81, 5; precinct 32, 0; precinct 34, 4j precinct 30. 2;); precinct 37, 2; precinct 40, 7; precinct 41, 4. The only precinct in which the error, if made, was the other way, was in the forty-second, in which Forrester gained two votes. It thus appears that Rowan by the recount gains in thirteen precincts and Forrester only in one; or. taking out the precincts in which the result is due to the Mayo vote, Rowan in eleven and Forrester in one. It certainly seems contrary to the doctrine of chances that with the opportunity of mistake equal between the two parties, in the absence of misconduct on the part of the boards, the errors should be in such overwhelm ing proportion against one of the parties. Summing up the case, with the cus tody of the ballots and the place where they were kept as insecure and exposed, as they undoubtedly were, to danger of being tampered with, and the uncer tainty with regard to the identity of ballots resulting therefrom, in the face of the very positive evidence as to the correct counting anil returning of the ballots in the two precincts particularly questioned, and the fact that the errors were almost all in one direction, with no apparent cause therefor, I am not satisfied that the contestant has estab lished the identity of the ballots offered upon the recount with those used at the election, and for that reason the recount will be rejected. The court will adopt the original returns. Let findings and judgment be pre pared in accordance therewith. THE BELT ROAD. What is Being Done for the Project. Yesterday a Hkbald reporter paid a visit to the corner of Fourth and Los An geles streets, where he found a big force of men engaged in making poles for the Electric Belt road. The poles will be as fine in all respects as those used by the Electric Light company. They are be-• ing trimmed into shape with beveled edges, and are being painted a pleasing gray color. In a few days these poles will begin to be set. in place on Fourth street, from the Arcade depot to the corner of Spring and Second. Beyond this the officials are chary about divulg ing theii plans. One of them said the company had purchased 1000 tons of steel rails and paid for them, and 15,000 redwood ties which were also paid for. That in about one-fifth of the rails needed for the road of 23 miles double track, or 46 miles of track all told. It taken) about 2(300 ties to the mile, so that the installment above is only a begin ning. Some of the rails and a good many of the ties are now here. The officials claim that in about a month they will he hard at work. Outside of official circles there are pretty loud rumors of some of their plans. One is that the Belt syndicate will control the Second-street cable, which will be an electric affair anil go out First street beyond Olive. Another rumor is that negotiations are pending with the Belt p ople to take the little depot lines of J. M. Davies, and operate them in connection with their other system. Then there is a third rumor to the effect that the Pico Heights people are tired waiting for the Pacific Cable company to come to time, and are trying to get up a deal with the Belt syndicate. Dan McFarland and Mr. Manspeaker are said to be in San Francisco working this now. Mr. Davies has been there too, but has returned. A National Event.

THE LEGALITY OF THEIR SALE LEGALLY INVESTIGATED. The Defendants Represented by a Large Array of Talent—The Demurrer and Its Points—The Caso Under Advisement. Yesterday morning an array of legal talent such as is seldom seen at the bar of a police court, assembled in Judge Owens' court room to argue on tbe de murrers filed in the cases recently brought against a number of saloon men for violating the new Sunday closing ordinance. The city was represented by Deputy City Attorney Al. Crutcher, while the defendants were respectively represented by Messrs. C. C. Stephens, Wells, Guthrie & Lee, John Robarts, Carpenter and Millins. The grounds upon which the demur rers were entered are exactly the same in each ease, and read as follows : First—That the court has no jurisdic tion over the persons of the defendants. Second—That the court has no juris diction over the subject matter of the offense. Third—That the complaint is ambigu ous aud uncertain, for the reason that it does not state that the alleged offense was committed in violation of any par ticular ordinance, giving number and date of its passage and the provisions thereof. Fourth —That the complaint is uncer tain, for the reason that if does not set forth whether or not the ordinance, the provisions of which it is alleged were violated, was ever published in a newspaper in the city of Los Angeles, or was ever posted the necessary time required by tlie statutes in order to make it a binding and effective ordi nance. Fifth —That the complaint is ambigu ous anil uncertain, lor the reason that it does not Btate the provisions of the alleged ordinance, or that any such ordi nance was duly passed by the city coun cil or approved by the mayor in accord ance with the provisions of the charter, or that the same ever became a law or is a valid ordinance of the city. Sixth—That if there ever was such an ordinance, that it is unreasonable and contrary to the constitution of the United States and the constitution of the state of California. Seventh —That the city of Los Angeles never had the power to pass any such ordinance its is alleged and attempted to be set up in the complaint. Eighth—That there is no such court in the city of Los Angeles authorized by any statute as "the police court of the city of Los Angeles." The argument of the defending coun sel in support of the demurrer was to the effect that the council, in passing such an ordinance, had exceeded its powers, in that it had no power to pro hibit the sale of intoxicants, but was vested with authority to regulate such sale only. That such an ordinance was unjust, unfair and oppressive, and that the term "public drinking place" was indefinite. The validity of the police court was questioned, counsel citing the cases of ex parte Toal and ex parte Riley, and the authority of the court under the Whitney act of 1885, which provided for police courts in cities having between 30,000 and 100,000 inhabitants. That the official census of 18' JO had not been promulgated, and that the court could not take judicial knowledge of the fact, that the city has a population of 3 0,000. After hearing both sides of the ques tion, Judge Owens took the matter un der advisement until Tuesday next. TO BE WELL FILLED. The Fate of the Newsboys Next Friday. The newsboys of this city are to have a Christmas party at their home on Fri day evening next at 7 o'clock. They will have a lunch and everything will be done by the ladies to make it pleasant for them. Some generous hearted per sons have made some donations, but more are needed. If any families have a snip.us of cake, fruit and other good things left over after Christmas, they can leave them on Friday at the home, or before that date, if they choose. The newsboys constitute quite an element in Los Angeles, and, as a rule, do not see many bright days. They ought to be re membered. Four Years on Criitehes. For fifteen years I was afflicted with rheu mutism, four yearsoi which t was compelled to go on crutches. Words are inadequate to express the suffering I endured during that time. During these fifteen years of exis tence (it was not living), I tried every known remedy without receiving any benefit. I finally began on Swift's Specific (S. S. S.), which from the first gave me relief, and to day 1 am enjoying the best of health, and am a well man. I candidly believe that 8. S. S. is tho best blood purifier on the market to day. J. 1).
