Ing asldo the comprehensive Interpreta
tion of the twenty-flveyear-old registra

Judge English ot the district court In

That Is all there Is to It, tho election
commissioner asserts and he advanced the
same argument, which In legal languaga
Is "that ho Is a Judicial officer," oefore
Judge English. Here Is what the JUdgj
said about It:
"It has been urged on behalf of the
respondent that In matters of rejlstra-
tlon the commissioner acts In a judicial
capacity, and that his decision as to the

Lnmrunnre of the Lair.
Tho cburt with respect to this point
said: "The registration law says noth
lng about producing naturalization
With reference to Mr. Moorhead's
changing the law's interpretation after
twenty-five years, the Judge said: "If the
legislature of 1913, when adopting the new
election commissioner law, was dissatis
fied with a construction sanctioned by
long usage and desired to limit the evi
dence to the naturalization papers appro
priate language could havo been easily
used to express that purpose."
But here Is the way the election com
missioner Is ablo to disregard the opinion
of the court and "get away with It." Ho
obeys the letter of the court order which
was drawn to fit Father Williams' cojo
alone, and. pays no attention to Judge
English's opinion, which, because It was a
test case, was drawn after several days'
consideration for the purpose of Inter
preting the law for all cases.
Prominent attorneys said yesterday the
election commissioner probably would
t away" with his plan unless some
other foreign-born voter snould again
Nix Mm Like Williams.
Six foreign-born voters, whose cases
were Just like that of Father Williams,
registered yesterday afternoon without
their papers. These were: Patrick 8. Mc
Gulre, who has lived in Nebraska thirty
seven years; John Merrltt, who has lived
hero forty-two years,; August Berggren,
who has lived her thirty-five years;
Frederick Stromberg, who has lived here
sixteen years; Thomas Morrjsey, who has
lived here twenty years, and DanleJ
Keogh, 66 years of age, who has been
here one year. These men wero all dis
franchised before Judge EnglUh ren
dered his decision.
A motion for a new trial was filed In
district court yesterday by the election
commissioner for the purpose of having It
overruled that he may appeal the case to
the supreme court.
Moorliend Outlines Position.
Following Is Mr. Moorhead's state

"In accordance with the decision of
