THE TOGGERY o Judge Churches strong iuti- malion from tho boncb that there was no law for tho placing of tin- saloon question on tho ballot, and his decision overruling tho demurrer of the iintl saloon people, it Is still the contention in Fresno that the decision did not go to the merits of the case, and that another decision will bo necessary. The Fresno Republican Ibis morning says: Judge Church overruled the demurrer yesterday to A.- Mattel's petition for mandamus to require the county clerk to issue and print the ballots for the November election without the words for the saloon license referendum. This ruling Is not a finality. The case will be further heard on the law points raised by the answer as to the power of the supervisors under the state law to authorize such a referendum. The decision yesterday on the demurrer was rendered under a misapprehension. It was understood that the case was submitted at one mid the samo time on the demurrer and merits the arguments on both having boon had In desultory fashion. Judge Church, however, understood that the mutter was submitted only on the demurrer and hence the ruling. That ruling Is only to hold that Mattel is a proper person ' to bring the action and has legal standing in court under the petition for relief as a party beneficially interested In the ultimate outcome. Judge Church was brief in announcing bis decision, declaring that the appellate court of tho first district bad passed upon the question in the Sun Jose city charter case itml he only followed that authority. The general impression was that the ruling on the demurrer and on tho au thorlty may forecast the final decision against placing tho referendum, but tills result doos not necessarily fol- • low. At tho earliest opportunity, Judge Church will be askod to hear the arguments on the law points In the i case, if he thinks It necessary In am, pllflcatlon of the arguments had on j Tuesday, when it was thought that the i matter was consldored both on the demurrer and on tho merits. Assistant District Attorney Me- CormlcU labors under this Impression and will ask for further arguments in the case and particularly to bring to the attention of the court a newly discovered citation, a case before the state supreme court dealing directly with the Initiative and referenda: will be arranged for.
