SUPREME COURT'S OPIN-
ION MADE RECORD OP
PAPER NOW NEGOTIABLE
Jurists Show Why Issue Is Noi
In Conflict With Any
Tlie supremo court today formally
handed down their decision In mo
mandamus caso or the Manhattan Con-
struction Co. vs. C. M. Uarnos and E.
W. Kllinun for tho Issuance and oxocu-
lion of tho convention hall bonds
voti'.l by the city of Guthrie July 23
100'. for the erection of a pciiivunHjin
hull. The court announced ita decision '
several ilajs ago stating It upheld
the validity of tho bonds. Tho du'I-
slon has boon ifvvaltod with much In-
terest as lawyers horo raised tho
point that a convention hall wus not a
public utility on which tho court rules
"A Convention hall lo bo owned.
controlled and used exclusively by a
city to accommodate public gatherings
of tho pooplo of Die city and for such
other public uses ar may bo designate
ed by Iho mayor and city council Is n
public utllltj within tho meaning of
that form as used In section 27 article
10 of tho constitution."
There was also much contention
among attornoys for the bond com-
panies as to the construction or the
now general election law as to wheth-
er n applied to special city or munic-
ipal elections. The court holds on this
as follows1 N
' Tha net of the legislature approved

flection law. does not -?ji:.i section
9. article 1 of chapter 12 of Wilson's

quire the registration of voters In the '
