One of the Alameda County "League's "fljftlig squadron"- came to grief yesterday between Cloverdale and- Santa Rosa when a country-constable, mounted on a motorcycle, objected to the speed of the Oaklanders" auto, "pinched" the machine and took the squadron Into custody. The party consisted of B. P. Miller, John B. Jordan, Harry Pulclfer and W. H. Weilbye. Weilbye was at the wheel. After his arrest he refused to be convinced that the constable was not a representative in disguise of the Interests behind the consolidation amendment and he would not be pacified until the officer promised that he would vote against the proposed amendment. The constable declared that Weilbye could run an auto faster than he ever saw one go before, but that the speed of the machine was slow In comparison with the fluency with which the "squadron" spun out arguments against- the amendment. The latest bulletin from the squadron Is that It had succeeded In escaping a term In Jail and was coming home on rtoe low speed. .S... " .-- J A LIVERMORE ON RECORD.

A recent editorial in the Independent of San Rafaelglves this advice: ' The people of the State of California should not lightly set aside the present constitutional guaranty of the efficiency of the county government and the county administration.
