KNOCK OUT TRADING STAMPS
What New Law Will Do, Says Pro
testing Seattle Company.
OL-TMPIA, "Wash., April 5. (Special.)
A. Li." Hutchlnsqn, representing a Seattle
trading-stamp company, has brought suit
against Governor Mead and Attorney
General Atkinson to prevent them from
enforcing the trading-stamp law passed
by the last Legislature, on the ground
that it is unconstitutional.
Fourteen counts are arrayed against the
prohibitive statute, which" Is designated
asUiou&e bill Ncv S40, Introduced by Rep
resentative Scott, of Spokane. It Js at
tacked as destructive to the lawful busi
ness of the plaintiff; a destruction of their
rights as individuals and against public
policy; restriction of trade between the
people of the state and of interstate
trade and commerce; as special and class
legislation; of unlawfully, wrongfully and
unconstitutionally depriving the plaintiffs
of their liberty and rights; as oppressive,
discriminative, prohibitive and unreason
able and not proper and lawful; that the
bll embraces more than one subject, and
that the subject of the act "is not ex
pressed in the title.
The company alleges that it has $70,000
Invested In the business, which will be de
stroyed by the act, together with, an an
nual income of $10,000. It operates in the
cities of Seattle, Tacoma and Everett, and
"elsewhere in the United States."
POOLROOMS DISTURB PEACE
Such Is Argument of Attorney Mc
Ginn Before Supreme Court.
SALEM, Or., April 5. (Special.) The
Portland poolroom case was argued In the
Supreme Court today, Attorney-General
Crawford and Henry McGinn appearing
for the state, and John M. Gearin and E.
B. "Watson for M. G. Nease, the poolroom
proprietor who was convicted.
Nease was convicted under section 1930
of the Code, providing for the punish
ment of persons who shall "commit any
act which grossly injures the person or
property of another, or which grossly
disturbs the public peace or health, or
which openly outrages public decency and
is injurious to public morals." Attorney
McGinn argued that although no common-law
crimes are recognized by the
courts, the courts may go to the common
law for definitions, and that by doing so
they find that conducting a gaming-house
is axi act such as these mentioned in this
statute. There is no statute against pool
rooms, and hence McGinn contended that
the offense can be punished under this
section of the Codev
The Rogoway case, involving the ques
tion whether a Circuit Court has a right
to limit attorneys for the defense in an
arson case to one hour for their argu
ment, was also submitted today. Rogo
way was convicted, and the conviction
affirmed, but the Supreme Court granted
a rehearing, and it was upon rehearing
that the case was argued today.
CITY OFFICER CANT BE OUSTED
Decision of Supreme Court on Coun
cilman Who Was Removed.
SAN FRANCISCO. April 5. The Cali
fornia Supreme Court today decided that
the people of a municipality cannot recall
an officer and elect anotlrer In his place.
The opinion was rendered In the case of
J. P. Davenport, who was elected a Coun
cilman in Los Angeles in 1903, and who a
few months later was recalled by his con
stituents, "who elected a successor In his
place. The Supreme Court decided that
Davenport should be reinstated and
should receive his salary for the full term.
Chief' Justice Beatty dissented from the
majority opinion of the court, holding
that a government can be conducted as a
private business: that the people, are Its
directors and can for good cause dismiss
from their service any officer who has
not been true to their Interests.
According to the jurist, the voters need
not wait for the next regular election to
-come around. They can act when they
feel that action is demanded for the pub
TO FREE FRANK M 'DAN I EL.
Purpose of Long Petition Filed With
SALEM, Or., Aprii 5. (Special.) The
petition for the pardon or Frank Mc
Danlel. convicted of the killing of
Clara Fitch, were received at the ex
ecutive office today. The petition bears
the names of many prominent-residents
of Portland, and Is, In fact, one of the
strongest petitions that has ever been
presented to the Governor, so far as the
standing of the petitioners Is concerned.
The absence of evidence that conclu
sively proved that McDanlel committed
the crime is the chief reason urged in
behalf of the extension of executive
clemency on behalf of the convicted
man. Numerous personal letters have
been written by prominent residents of
Portland In behalf of McDanlel, among
them cne from Professor E. A Milner,
of the public schools, who tells of Mc
Daniel's good conduct while a student
of the High School, and his earnestness

son on a charge of larceny from a Bhop,
"Warren Howard has placed himself in a
position from which the penitentiary
stares him in the face. Eddie Howard,

Since that time it Is alleged that the
elder Howard has approached several of
the witnesses in the case, and also two
of the grand Jurors, offering inducements
to them to let his son off easy.
As a consequence, at the trial of young
Howard evidence was produced which
showed that the older Howard had at
tempted to induce witnesses to testify
falsely. Howard was Immediately indict
ed by the grand Jury on a charge of sub
ornation of perjury, and Is now in Jail at
Mount Hood Road Rates.
OREGON CITY, Or., April 5. (Special.)

tion only the constitutionality of the
local option law. The brief for the City
of Hood River has been filed In the Su
preme Court, and the contention of the
city authorities is thus disclosed.
John McCourt, of Pendleton, attorney
for the City of Hood River, filed the
brief. Other cases that have been
brought under the local orvUon law have
involved merely questions of form and
procedure; this goes to the foundation
of the law and raises the question of its
validity. The case will probably be 1
tried by the Supreme Court at its May
"The people are bound by the constitu
tion the same as the Legislature," said
Mr. McCourt today. "In enaotlng a law
by resort to the initiative the people
can go as far as the Legislature can,
and no farther. We propose to show that
the Legislature had no power to pass a
local option law, and that therefore the
people had no such power.
Prohibited by Constitution.
"The local option law adopted In this
state is practically the same as that
adopted in Texas, , and we are told that
the law has been upheld by the highest
courts of that state, and if constitu
tional there Is also constitutional here.
There is this difference, however the
constitution of Texas requires the Leg
islature to enact a local option law,
while the constitution of Oregon pro
hibits it. Now let us see.
"Prior to the drafting of the Oregon
constitution, a number of the states had
passed local option laws, but these had
been held invalid by the courts. When
tho Oregon Constitutional Convention
was in session in 1S57 there were pre
sented to the convention 12 petitions
signed by about 1000 Prohibitionists, ask
ing the convention to place in the con
stitution a section authorizing the Legis
lature to enact prohibitory laws, or to
submit such laws with the provision that
they should take effect upon the ap
proval of the people. Another petition
was presented asking the convention to
jincludc a section in the constitution
prohibiting the Legislature from enact
ing license laws. There was also a reso
lution introduced in the convention pro
viding that the liquor question should
be submitted to a vote of tho peop'.e
the same as tho slavery question. Tho
petitions were denied and the resolution
was voted down.
Anti-Liquor Request Refused.
"Instead of granting the requests of
the anti-liquor people, the. convention
placed a' clause in the constitution, over
their protest, for tho purpose of pre
venting the enactment of local option
liquor haws. That clause is contained in
section 21 of article 1 of the constitution.
As this section was originally drafted, it

To this the following addition was proposed:
"Nor shall any law be passed, the. taking ef

any authority, except as provided In this con
stitution. Provided that laws locating the cap
ital of the state, locating county eeats and
submitting town and corporato acts and other
local and special laws, may take .effect or not
upon a vote of the electors Interested."
"The records of the constitutional
convention show that the prohibition
people fought this amendment, but It
was adopted nevertheless, thus showing
the clear Intent of the constitutional
convention to prohibit the enactment of
"This clause was inserted in the con
stitution for the purpose stated, and It
remains effective for that purpose un
less the initiative and referendum
amendment changes it.' That amend
ment provides among other things that

tive and that they shall take effect

"According to "its own terms the local
option law did not become effective
when it was adopted by the people, but
before it becomes effective In any com
munity or county a petition must be
filed with the County Court, the liquor
question must be submitted to a vote
of the people, and a final order must be
made by the County Court.
"An examination of the decisions of
the courts prior to. 1859 will show that
local-option' laws had been held in-
valid becauso they were delegations of
legislativo authority. Since then the
courts have changed their decisions and
hold that such laws are not delegations
of legislative authority, but are laws
the taking effect of which depends upon
a future contingency. Our constitutional
convention, however, adopted the sec
tion I have quoted In view of the deci

Is must be construed In that light."
The Hood PZlver case arose from the
fact that Hood River went "dry" at the
November election. A saloonkeoper

the unearned portion of his license fee,
and the city refused to pay it. alleging
that the local-option law "was uncon
