ngPgBICKBBCRO. VA. THUK9DAT. JANUARY V). ISO*? ?wa_Hak-l-H_H_wM_-HH--_Hr^-H_Mr?fl_a-BBt?t^ THE PRIMARY PLAN OF NOM INAT, Tbe T.MBB Diepatch, while it gieee due credit to Uovernor Swaneon for baeiag tranemitted to tbe Gestera! Aaeeaibljr a ver- progrieaive aod able natten<re. at th? name tinte BJmrgn him with having made aome grave omiealooe, among which was? hie I ail are to advocate a bill legal -ting the primary plan. There are ae man/ otea in Virginia today who will commend tbe Governor for this omiaeion aa there are who will l.larue him. Ladend, we have no doubt that a majority of the Dem?rate in the State will con mend him. as we are firmly convinced that a majority of tbe Democrat? are oppoe-ed to the enactment of a law legalizing the primary. It hae been vigorously at? tempted at two former aeeaions of tbe Geoeral Aeeembly and hna failed on every occasion Why, therefore, ?hould the governor, with all the live issues before him, with which he has eo ably dealt, undertake to reeurrect this faart decomposing corpee'.' It 1? far better to let it slumber. The pri? mary plan iteelf is none too popular, and tbe chancee are that if those who wish to retain the primary plan of nomination agitate the mat ter too much, they will lose what of that plan they now have. At least '?ov ernor Swauson is to be commended for not referring to the matter in hie message. VICTORY FORSCHMITZ Conviction of Frisco's Former Mayor Set Aside. "GRAFT" IS NOT A CRIME Court of Appeals Holdt Compelling RetUursnts to Pay "Fee." to Abe Ruef Wa. Not Criminal. Even If He Divided With th. Mayor. 8_n Francisco. Jen. 10?The district eourt of appeal? handed down a dec! don letting aside the judgement in the case of former Mayor Eugene E SchmlU. convicted of extortion in the ?euch reeUurant case. Abe Ruef aleo benefit, by the ruling of the upper court, for. according to lu d?cision, h? pleaded guilty to aa act that was no offense against the lawa of the state. According to the appellat? judge?. the compelling of French restaurants to pay 'fees" to Abe Ruef was not a crime, even though Ruef divided the **fee.-' with the mayor. After discussing the point the court reversed tbe judgment against Schmlti on the ground that no acu constituting a crime had been proved against him Abe Ruef. who pleaded guilty to extort? ing money from the French restaur? ants, la therefore equally guiltless. The decision wipe? out the French reeUurant cases and pending charges of extortion against Schmitt, and Ruef must be dismissed. Both are now entitled to release on ball. If they obuin the necessary bondtmen they can remain at llbetty untll such Ume as a Jury finds them guilty on one of the tndictmenu charg? ing them with receiving bribes from corporations. Owing to the numbei ~-^<-***__f*1,"?t them, the ball, figured at |TiTrtj?j?>-B came, would reach at enormous figure. ?Schmlu and Ruef cannot take ad *anu?e of the decision for tlxty day? The pt?oeecutlon has twenty day? m which to ask for a rehearing. Then the appellate court will have ten day*. to consider the application. When that U done, the prosecution will ajc through the same procedure in the su? preme court, which will Uke the same length of time. Consequently Schmitt and Ruef will be kept In the count-. Jail for two months at least. The new? of the decision of the ap pellate court spread rapidly over th? dty, causing consternation in some quarters and delight In others. District Attorney Langdon said SchmlU and Ruef will be prosecuted on other tndictmenu that are public offenses.
