  • Bound compilation of briefs in the case of Andrew Pfahler, a butcher caught slaughtering pigs in January 1906 in a ward where that activity had been prohibited after a 1904 initiative election. According to Tom Sitton, author of John Randolph Haynes, a California progressive (Stanford, Calif. : Stanford Univ. Press, 1992), "Pfahler's attorneys applied to the State Supreme Court for his release in a writ of habeas corpus on the ground that the initiative (and therefore, direct legislation) was unconstitutional. The incident had been staged, and the case financed by meatpacking and other interests to test the validity of the initiative" (p. 60). Volume includes six amicus curiae briefs filed in the case: Hauser Packing Co.; Wright & Wright and Allen G. Wright; William G. Burke and D.W. Burchard; W. H. Davis; Anderson & Anderson; W.B. Mathews, City Attorney of Los Angeles
