by all concerned.

The Oregonian office and excel

The returns were compiled and
tabulated on Burroughs Adding
Machines, enabling the election
force to keep its totals up to the
count of the election boards.
pings explaining the method of voting
with the preferential voting system
were pasted In the polling places by
election officials. These were ordered
' Jitneys Violate Law.
The police had to be brought into
action to force the jitneys to remove
their banners, which have been flaunt
ed for weeks past on the backs and
sidea of the cars. Mayor Albee in
structed the police to force the removal
of these. The police also pulled downT
campaign cards and other literature
wherever it was found about the city.
These acts were in compliance with the
corrupt practices law, which prohibits
campaigning of any kind on election
The voting started out extremely
light in virtually every part of the city.
At noon the voting increased until
about 1:30, when there was another
lull. This continued until nearly 4
o'clock, when the real rush of the day
Many of the polling places had to
remain open later than the scheduled
closing time (8 P. M.) because of the
number of persons waiting to vote.
The voting was a slow task, owing to
the fact that there were three ballots.
The election officials had each, ballot
to arrange separately and the stubs
to mark before handing them to voters.

COURT GOES TO RED
Federal Murder Case to Be
Tried at Klamath Falls.
CITY ARRANGES FOR PLACE
Negotiations for Room to Hold Spe
cial Session After Old Statute
Invoked Balked' 1x3 tig by
After negotiations covering the bet
ter part of .a week, it is finally settled
that the United States District Court
will hold a special session in Klamath
Falls, beginning Thursday, June 10,
for the trial of Jim George, an Indian
accused of th i murder of Peter Brown.
After L. R. Webster, attorney for
George, had invoked a Federal statute
passed in 1789 which provides that any
person aecused of violation of a Fed
eral statute punishable by death, shall
have the right to be tried in the county
where the alleged crime was committed,
and Judge Wolverton had granted his
petition, difficulties arose through the
attitude of the Mayor of Klamath Falls.
With his petition Mr. Webster had
presented a request signed by almost
every business man of Klamath Falls,
asking to have the case tried there, and
agreeing to turn over the City Hall to
the Government for court purposes dur
ing the trial.
Mayor Refuses to Sign
But when a formal contract to this
effect was sent by United States At
torney Reames to the Mayor to sign,
the Mayor balked. First he thought
he would, and then he thought he
wouldn't. Mr. Reames insisted that un
less the Government had an absolute
contract giving it the use of the build
ing, the trial could not be held there.
Business men of Klamath Falls ar
gued with the Mayor, but he was ob
durate. Just when it looked as if the
trial would not be held in Klamath
Falls after all, the business men sent
Mr. Reames a message saying that a
new City Council, pledged to sign the
contract.- would go into oftice yester
day. The old City Council wanted to
sign the contract and override the
Mayor, the message said, but couldn't
do so because the Mayor refused to call
a special session of the council.
Council Asrfca to Contract.
Testerday the new Council took offlee
immediately held a meeting and signed
the contract, as United States Reames
was informed by telegraph. That set
tied it, and last night Assistant United
States Attorney Beckman left Portland
for Klamath Falls to make preliminary
arrangements. Mr. Reames and Judge
Wolverton, with court attaches and a
deputy United States Marshal, will fol

lished. At a previous trial held in 1914
in Jdedford a jury disagreed as to
George's guilt. N
Statute Invoked In 1820 I.aat.
The case is remarkable otherwise
in that it Is the first one In which the
ancient statute of 1789 has ever been
invoked successfully by an accused man.
On two previous occasions, once in 1799
and again in 1820, petitions of the de
fendant to be tried in the county where
the alleged offense was committed were
denied by the United States courts.
Although capital punishment was
abolished in Oregon last year, this does
not effect the United States laws, which
provide death for first-degree murder.
