AFFIDAVITS ARE
DECLARED VALID
took and; Mott Uphold Voters^
Depositions Despite Tecli
: nical Drawback
OAKLAND, Feb. 2S.— According to
County .Clerk Cook . and County Ke
corder Mott -the affidavits of voters in
favor of candidates for nomination are
legal in spite of the fact that blank
spaces are left in many cases, where
the/ward and /precinct of the voter Is
intended to be. The point was raised
several days ago that because these
blank spaces had to be filled in after
the voter, had made oath to the truth
of ; the contents, the entire affidavit
,was invalid. District Attorney Dona
hue, while not passing directly on the
point, said then that it was a serious
one. .-.- ! . \u25a0-'\u0084"... '.-;':' "* -/ -- '
Cook explained today that it would
be .a physical impossibility" to put in
the wards and precincts -in most cases
for the reason that incorporated cities
and towns mustt.be redistrlcted this
year according^to/ law.
It often V happened, Cook also said,
that' the voter, did' not know his. ward
and precinct when, he ..signed the affi
davit and could/ not fill out the blank
spaces for that reason.
Under the circutnstances, he declared,
the spirit of the law was being com
plied with -when' voters put ' down on
the affidavits the street and number of
their residences. He said that the law
should be construed liberally so as to
deprive no voter of his rights.* \u25a0
MELROSE RESIDENTS
FEAR AN EXPLOSION
Oppose Steelite Powder Plant's
Plan to Build
OAKLAND^ Feb. 28.— Fearful lest the
steelite powder manufactured by the
Pacific steelite company might explode,
residents of Melrose are circulating a
petition against- allowing the company
to build a. plant in that district. The
company recently purchased four acres
below the Southern Pacific line for the
purpose of building a factory. . . ,-\u25a0
.It is understood that the explosive
is not to be made at the Melrose plant,
merely the necessary products made
from chemicals obtained about the bay
and then shipped to the main plant of
the company in Nevada, where they will
be nitrated and mixed to form a power
ful blastin-g compound. Until these
processes are gone through with the
representatives of the company claim
that there is no danger of an explo
