'COURT RULING IN
TAX CASE SAVES
COUNTY $50,000'
Hynes Says Upholding of
MacMullan Suit Would
Have Unearthed An
cient Claims
SUPERVISORS AVER
RATE WAS FIXED
Denial of Writ for $1.50 Ex
cess Assessment Ends
Five Year Action
OAKLAND, reb. 11.—Alameda county
■will he saved $50.0<""0 by a decision of
Superior Judge Waste today, according
tn an estimate of District Attorney
Hynes. Judge Waste denied a petition
for a writ of mandate filed by C. S. Mac-
Mullan to force the county to return
$1.50 to MacMullan as excess personal
» property tax for the fiscal year 1902-03.
T"pon the Issue of the action depended
possiblo claims for $50,000 against the
county.
MacMullan contended that the board,
of supervisors failed legally to fix the
tax rate for 1902-03. The minutes of
the board disclosed that after the rate
had been fixed it was amended, but they
failed to disclose that the amended rate
had been adopted as a whole.
BOARD AS WITNESSES
Tn the absence of proof In the min
utes Hynes had the five members of
the board at that time called as wit
nesses and they testified that the
amended rate was properly adopted.
The members were John Mitchell, now
chairman of the state board of equali
zation; County assessor C. F. Homer,
H. P. Talcott. Harrison D. Rowe and
William H. Church.
Church, r.owe and Mitchell testified
that they positively recalled the fixing
of the rate and Homer and .Talcott
stated that to the best of their recol
lection the proceedings were regular.
There was a long argument over the
admission of their testimony and as to
whether the board was not bound by
its minutes. Judge Waste allowed the
testimony of the five former members
to go In. a derision of the appellate
court which Hynes found, settling the
dispute.
I,OX; 81 IT IS ENDED
"Taxes paid without a regular rate
r-onstitute a claim against the codnty
which never outlaws," said Hynes, "and
had MacMullan won there is no telling
imw many claims he might have dug up
dating back 30 or 40 years, to a time
when there were no survivors to testify
to the contrary, as fortunately hap
pened in this case."
The case has been in the court in one
form or another for about five years,
and Mr. Hynes ha.s handled the entire
litigation for the county.

PATTEN SAYS HE
IS GUILTY; PAYS
FOUR THOUSAND
Associates in Cotton Deal
Decline to Follow, De
claring Action Would
Mean Perjury
LAWYER SAYS MORAL
TURPITUDE LACKING
Declares Client Acted Be
cause He Desired to Save
All Parties Trouble
NEW YORK, Feb. 11.—James A.
Patten, the cotton and grain specula
tor, pleaded guilty in the federal court
here today to the sixth count ln an
indictment charging him with restraint
of trade.
Judge Mayer fined Mr. Patten $4,000,
which was paid immediately.
The sixth count charges that Patten
and his associates, Colonel Robert M.
Thompson, William P. Brown, F. B.
Hayne and Eugene Scales, agreed, un
der a contract, to buy practically the
entire raw cotton crop of 1909 In order
to hold It out of the market until No
vember 1, 1910.
To the seven other-counts ln the In
dictment Patten pleaded not guilty
and they were nolled by the court.
DEMURRER OVERRULED
Patten. Eugene Scales, of Texas, and
others were Indicted by a federal grand
jury here more than a year ago for
manipulation of the cotton market.
The government charged that their
acts constituted restraint of trade.
The defendants demurred and carried
their case to the supreme court, which
recently ruled against them.
George W. Merrick. Patten's attor
ney, issued a statement saying that
his client had entered his plea "with
out any- consciousness of being guilty of
any moral turpitude or of offending
in the slightest degree against any
law or proper rule of conduct."
"The contract charged in the sixth
count of this indictment is one that has
hitherto always been deemed commer
cially proper and lawful," said the
lawyer. "Indeed, this contract was not
signed by him and he only knew of It
as having been entered Into by others
and as one entirely proper. This con
tract, moreover, was drawn by counsel
learned In the law and stated by them
to be ln every way lawful.
"Although the Sherman act has been
In force for more than 20 years. It was
never before supposed that a contract
of the kind in question offended
against it.
"This long litigation has been a
source of great expense and care to
my client and he Is now. while un
afraid, unwilling further to litigate,
and so he makes this plea for the pur
pose of concluding an action that, if
continued, would entail still greater
expense, trouble and annoyance, both
to himself and to the government."
Will Not Perjure Selves
NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 11. —Frank B.
Hayne said:
"We were aware that Mr. Patten In
tended to plead guilty. T would con
sider that T had stultified myself If I
pleaded guilty to a charge that I knew
I was not guilty of."
Both Mr. Brown and Mr. Hayne are
residents of New Orleans. Eugene G.
Scales, the fourth member of the pool
under indictment, lives at Waco, Texas.
"Hayne. Scales and myself will not
plead guilty," said Mr. Brown, "for the
reason that we would perjure our
selves if we did so. as we are not
guilty of a single one of the charges
that have been made against us."
"I expected it," said Mr. Brown,
when Informed that Mr. Patten had
pleaded guilty.
