Kings County had In 1892 as shown by the State census in thai This pop ulation would call for a registered vote of about This registry number agrees with the vote of the town substan tially for years before tne census was In the fall of that year the vote of the town was returned at over In fall of 1893 the registry of voters arose The who was a candidate for an important office to be voted for at the election of appller to the inspectors of election for copies of the lists in each of the six districts of the which all voted in one build The application was unsuccessful and the plaintiff applied to this court for its aid in compelling the production of the so that the plaintiff could copy The court instructed the inspec tors as to the right of the plaintiff to have copies of the but that his right was no greater than the right of other The inspectors were again applied to by persons acting for the plain tiff in sufficient numbers to copy the lists in due if the lists were The instruction by the court was used by the inspectors to baffle the Persons who were apparently employed in copying the lists refused to give them up or to permit copies to be made simultaneously with these pre tended for It is fully established that no real copy was being The JIHCH were not The Inspectors could not be The combination to prevent the publicity of thn lists in Hurtnd the entire body of the inspectors of defendants have made au issue jus to che conduct of the plain tiffs The issue is of no importance undei the view of the case presenteS to the He did he could get the His agents say they for them in a civil and becoming The defendants say that the request was made rudely and without that selfcon trol which should prevail among persons transacting business FRAUD WAS This great fact Is uncontradicted the lists were not whether the request was made rudely or The plain tiffs thus shows that a reg istry of the voters of the town was made which justified the inference of which did It proved it The law providing for registry designed a mi nority representative in the board of in it called for publicity of the By reason of the unfaithfulness of the whole board of the security to the candidate entirely Neither the names of this fraudulent registry nor the places of residence of the voters could be An election board made up of these iuspectora would be no protection to the minority Under these circumstances the plain tiff applied to this Court for Us aidT The party watchers on the part of the Re publican party became the object of sus although appointed by the regu authority in such The plaintiff made application for other who were All the remedy left to the plaintiff was to have faithful watch ers at the Violence had been used to drive away the and violence was anticipated to drive away the watch Upon proof of the facts above de an injunction was granted re straining the defendants from interfer ng with these so clothed with the power of appointmentfrom the Re publican No attempt was made to Interfere with the watchers previously It Is pViln under the facts as proved by the atndavlta that they were not designed to watch In the plaintiffs nterest or In the Interest of the Repub which had nominated him for A PROPER The bill of complaint was or he plaintiff and all persons similarly situated are without any adequate rem A case of combination and conspir acy was established in respect to the and violence had been seemingly to prevent persons from put ing themselves where Illegal acts could e seen and reported and the Illegal suit Equity has the power to aid the plaintiff in giving its protection to agents having a lawful purpose in and one protected by positive law and needed to give him a fair Un der the proof final judgment could be anticipated that the registry was fraudu lent that the Inspectors conspired to make it and to that end sup pressed the publicity of the list that watchers first appointed were appointed for form that they should have retired when their successors appeared with the authority of this if such an act was needed but they could re main without offense to the It was not within the power of the defendant to question the propriety of the injunction order If the court hud jurisdiction of the subject its order must be People ex Van 136 New INJUNCTIONS DO Was the order and by whom Here the proof IK overwhelming In favor of the of who was the Chief of Police of the He met the carriage in which Bacon and others were carried to the Town and upon Bacon alighting from the carriage stated to him that he had been expecting Upon being told that he was under the protection of an McKane stated that injunctions did not and ordered Bacons He WAR beaten and conllncd in a cell and suffered in dignity upon McKane de nies but the treatment of Bacon is not and McKane van Chief of Bacon is sup ported by his companions in the car The evidence is so clear and con clusive that McKane had been the controlling power in all the preceding evil which had been and the police had been so ready to arrest on his without that he stands as one of the conspirators against the election if not the chief of the It Is natural that his acts on the election morning would be in accord with his pre vious He knew of the Injunction and defied and must bo ad judged guilty of a criminal JUDGE NEWTONS PART IN The proof shows that New ton met a who was riding in a carriage towards the polling places of with the some 150 feet from the Town He was told the men were under protection of an but he defied the and would not let the party proceed fur A policeman then threatened to club Grout If he went Newtons conduct on this occa sion was only a continuation of his pre vious and he had been very act ive In preventing the publication of the notwithstanding that he is a Jus tice of the Peace of the The affi davits of the persons who accompanied Grout fully sustained his and there is not any doubt of the fact that Newton violated the injunction and should be adjudged guilty of con The three inspectors of election are guilty of a criminal contempt for viola tion of the injunction One Rosen bach appeared at the polling place and told these inspectors that he had an in junction order to He started to produce and was Immediately attacked from every He threw tho papers upon the table In front of the He was thrown and arrested by a police man and locked The inspectors subsequently signed a warrant for this The arrest presumably made at their in donance of the Tho vote of town was over which culler for of some for over THE PUNISHMENT What shall the punishment be An extreme case is A combinatioi which the Registry the watchers first appointed and the police through its is established agains the purity of an There was ii false there was Illegal refusal to make it The copyists had arrested and put In cells without the lenst criminal act on their and the friends ami watchers of those who were interested in thn vote were Illegally ar beaten and imprisoned by the in spectors and police acting with them to accomplish a result Injurious In the highest degree to popular sovereignty which rests upon fair a fail countof the and a rigid respect to this count thus The extreme pun ishment provided by the law must be imposed for mien an offense thus bru tally carried The accused are lined each am for thirty days in the County Tall of Kings McKANE HEARS THE The news was carried to iiis office at by The boss and his counsel then iield an earnest Finally Judge Troy hurried over to the Court House and joined
