Sitting as a court of naturalization yes terdav. Superior Judge - Everett . J. Brown ruled in the case of Ensepio Pala dlno, an alien foreman in the emnloy of the Peoples . Water Company, that even though an applicant for citizenship could not read English,' but could' speak the language and had a reasonably clear Idea of the principles enunciated by tha Con stitution of the United States, he was en titled to be naturalized. The court also held In the samo case that petitioners for citizenship might be represented at bar by an attorney, but that when It came to questioning him with reference to the Constitution this should be done by the court itself. Naturalization Examiner Richardson representing the federal Government, had contended that notwithstanding the fact that the United States statutes require only that an applicant must be able to speak ' the ' English language and be at t ached to the principles of the Constitution," the court should rule that a reading-knowledge of the language was also required. BROWN'S POSITION. Judge Brown held that' inasmuch as Congress only required a speaking knowledge of the language in such cases It would not be proper for the court to Impose, additional conditions. This ruling was . based upon the congressional . act which only provides that an applicant must sign his petition In his own handwriting, and that "no alien shall hereafter be naturalized or admitted as ; a citizen of the United States who can not speak the English language." 5 A 'similar . ruling Was made about two months ago by Superior Judge Ellsworth in. the case pf , John Armlnino who was admitted to full citizenship. Attorney Carlos G. White represented Paladino, but when Judge Brown took the applicant in hand with reference to his understanding of the Constitution he was not entirely satisfied , with the showing and continued the matter untU November 27, to give Paladino more time to inform himself In the premises. FRESNO CHURCH STORM STILL WAGES MERRILY FRESNTO, Sept. 29.
