WRIT OF MANDATE ISSUED
.Necessity for Entire Recount of T27
Precincts In los Angeles County
Calls for Work by Night
I.OS ANGELES. Nov. 21. The District
Court of Appeals handed down a de
cision In the election controversy iaie
todav which Democratic leaders declare
will place California in the Wilson
The decision was against the method
of the board of supervisors in canvass
ing? the returns of Los Angeles County.
The court held that the tallies should
be counted and not the certification. At
least one precinct, that of Pasadena
No. 4. will be virtually thrown out by
the decision, with a loss of 103 plurality
for all Roosevelt electors except Wal
rrmnptorr Writ Issued.
A DeremDtonr writ of mandate was
ordered issued directing the board of
supervisors to canvass the election re
turns in accordance wnn tne con
clusions set forth in the opinion.
The opinion sustained the Democrats
In all except one point involved. It was
an important point, however, Inasmuch
as a decision in favor of the Demo
cratic contention would have assured
the election of the entire 13 Wilson
electors in the state. This involved
the returns of 35 precincts which the
Democrats petitioned to be rejected
entirely because the sealed envelopes
had been opened so that corrections in
the certification could be made by elec
Thousand Totes Saved to Colonel.
The court held that the breaking of
the sealed envelopes prior to the time
for opening them in public was con
trary to law, "but did not constitute
such an irregularity as to require that
the returns be entirely rejected." In
these precincts Roosevelt had a plural
ity of more than 1000.
All the contentious raised by the
Democrats relative to the method of
the canvassing the returns were upheld
by the court. From the beginning of
the canvass the Democratic committee
men present insisted that tally lists be
. counted rather than the certification
totals but the supervisors took the
latter figures in preference. .
Complete Recount Necessary.
The decision caused consternation
among Roosevelt Progressive leaders
and the members of the canvassing
board, because of the brief time re
maining for the final certification and
forwarding or the returns to the becre-
tary of State, failure to do which by
next Monday would result in the vote
of the banner Roosevelt county being
lost with Its approximately 20.000
plurality for the Progressive Presiden
Owing to the method adopted by the
supervisors, a complete recount of the
727 precincts in the county is neces
sary and the work of canvassing the
returns in the manner stipulated by
the court will necessitate night and
lay work continuously until the last
moment for dispatching the certified
returns to the Secretary of State.

Montana. After. they had lived in Mon
tana a few weeks, the plaintiff tes
tified, her husband told her that he
did not care to support her longer and

her mother In Lebanon.

Allister said he had received a tele-

partner to meet him in Asniana
and have a conference before returning
north, as he needed a rest and wanted
to consider his defense before facing
the Portland authorities.
Before he was locked up, McAllister
sent the following telegram to Upton:

As soon as instructions are received
from Portland it is expected that Chief

to being locked up in the cramped

In spite of his protestatiqn, the au
thorities are of the opinion that McAl

him and was bent on escaping from the
state when apprehended. He is well
known in Medford. having conducted a
campaign here for the prohibition

friends visited him at the jail. To all

SHIPBUILDERS ARE GLAD

WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. With a de
lay of perhaps a year In the comple
tion of the Panama Canal in prospect,
unless foreign vessels are allowed to
continue carrying material and sup
plies to the Canal Zone, the Interstate
Commerce Commission decided today to
modify its recent administrative rul
ing "that shipments destined from
points in the United States to Porto
Rico, the Canal Zone or the Philippine
Islands are coastwise shipments."
Order Virtually Withdrawn.
The precise terms of the modified
order are not yet available, but they
will amount practically to a wltnorawai
of the order. The original ruling of
the Commission was recognized in
stantly of vital importance to vessel
owners throughout the world. Under
the statutes of this country coastwise
shipping may be carried only In Amerl
can vessels. The commerce between
the United States and the Canal Zone,
Porto Rico and the Philippines now is
carried largely by vessels flying for
Canal Commission In Commotion.
By the terms of the Commission's
ruling shipments to the territories
named can be carried only in American
ships. The ruling was hailed Joyously
by American shipbuilders, one of whom
informed the Commission today that it
would mean the doubling of the ca
pacity of his shipyard.
The Government itself, however, and
particularly the Isthmian Canal Com
mission, was thrown Into a commotion
by the ruling. The matter was pre
sented Immediately to the Commission
with the statement that the ruling, if
it should stand, would be a heavy blow
to the construction of the Panama
Canal, delaying its completion prob
ably a year.

SAN FRANCISCO, Noy. 21. With the
receipt of a report from Norman Vin
cent, of Seattle, specially assigned by
the shipping and commission firm of
W. R. Grace & Company to study the
lumber market in New York and the
East and the effect that the opening of
the Panama Canal will have upon It,
word also was received at the local
office of the company today that its
fleet of steamers that are to ply
through the new waterway will be in
creased by the addition of a new ves
sel. The launching of the ship, which is
to be christened the Santa Cecelia, wHl
place four carriers in the company's
new Intercoastal trade.
The Santa Cruz, which was launched
this month on the Atlantic Coast, will
go into commission immediately, to be
followed shortly by the Santa Clara, a
steamer of 10,000 tons. The Santa Cata
lans, of the same tonnage, will be ready
by August 1, 1913, and the other ves
sel will leave the ways in the following
September. In shipping circles here it
is thought the canal will be opened to
ships by September, 1913.
The new ships will carry general
merchandise into the Pacific from New
York and return by way of the canal
laden with lumber, opening the New
York market direct to California red

CAR SERVICE-IS DESIRED
Extension of Rose City. Park Line
Projected by Residents.
The East Seventy-second Street Im
provement Club is making a special
effort to complete the amount required
to get an extension of the Rose City
Park carilne from Sandy boulevard and
East thirty-seventh street on Halsey
street and the . Barr road to East
Eighty-second street. About 115,000 has
been subscribed, and a committee of
eight from the club is working every
day visiting property owners. A. R.
Mattoon is chairman of the committee
engaged in raising the money.
Mr. Mattoon says that the work is
slow, but that property.owners are sub
scribing as they are seen. He says
that It will be necessary to make up
the amount soon, as Halsey street Is to
be paved next year from East Thirty-
seventh to East Fifty-second street, the I
contract having been let, and if the
pavement is not laid before the track
is put down, It will delay the carilne.
At the start the committee estimated
that it will cost property owners $20 a
lot for land abutting on Halsey street
and the Barr road, with a proportionate
assessment on lots further removed.
Mr. Mattoon estimates that the line will
double the value of all property of the
