a Tote of th people tha bUl giving

this count v. declares that fatal defect
xlat in th referendum petitions filed
with the secretary of state. Logan say
that tha failure of many or tne sign
ers to give their- aooresses ana tne
omission of th warning clause ar such
defects aa to render Jh petition in
valid. Logan aald today:
"Wednesday. Hay !. pherlff Btsvsns,
together with Mr. Malarkey and my
self aa his attorneys, visited th offlc
of th secretary af stats for ths purpose
of ascertaining - the legality of. various
petitions for- the referendum, particu
larly th bill-giving tha sheriff the
right .to feed the prisoners. -"Wi
found that ths petitions ar net
drawn up In form. ' Far instance, such
aa tha failure of -th affiants to glvs
their residence add poetofTlcc address.
We also found that son at th peti
tion contain tha warning clause, which
th law provide to road as follows: 'It
Is a felony for anyone to-sign any Ini
tiative or referendum petition with any
name other .than his own, or to know
ingly sign-his heme4mofe' than once
for the same measure or .to. si gn such
petition when he I not a legal voter.'
"Any one reading tna aot of l07 win
instantly notloe that the 'scheme and
purpose of ths law Is for the warning
clause to bo before th eyes of all the
voters, becanae the ..warning; clause la
set out In ths form required both for
the Initiative and tha referendum. That
Is, it Is repeated In the forms ao that
no mistake can be made as to Its re
quirement in th form. ' -
'"Ths pstltloa Is required to be mad
up of pagea en which no more than 10
signature can be placed. The purpose
evidently of this schems was to prevent
the making np of petitions In rolls . or
books so thst ths person signing oould
not see what he waa signing, aa ths
law Intends tdprvent ths signing of
mora than It lines away from ths warn
ing clause. - It Is evident therefore,
that the warning clause must be Jon
each page of th petition In order. to
prevent illegal or unqualified (.voter
from signing th aem, by having their
attenUon oalled to' their Ineligibility, i
"The warning claus itself doe not
define a crime; -it la merely a notloe
that It la a crime, showing that ths leg
islators did not Intend to enact but that
th warning 1 a mare statement of th
law as ta ths crime, -because later on
In section It the crime Itself is de
fined, of which the warning is a notice.
"An interesting question has come up
whether or not the secretary of state
can allow a clerk or , deputy to bring
the bills to Multnomah county to check
off - the names snd ascertain who are
unqualified electors or Illegal voters,
aa waa dona in the lata liquor license
ordinance.. i N
-"So sealous Is the law requiring the
warning notice and the law Itself to be
before th eye of th elector thst if
there are more than 10 name on a
peg th secretary of state has adopted
the rule that all ovorthe first; 10 names
ar rejected. If there are, fo Instance.
14 names on a pags ths Isst four areabil
solntely disregarded. Going-" further,
If there ar one or more name that ar
Illegal among th first 10 ths subtrac
