2. A constitutional right to distribute in the streets handbills of printed commercial advertising matter, contrary to a municipal ordinance, cannot be acquired by adding to the handbills matter of possible public interest which, by itself, might be privileged but which is added with the purpose of evading the prohibition of the ordinance with respect to the advertising matter.
