Contention That Enabling Act is In
validCannot Effect Majority of
Officials Elected at Primary Is
Attorney General's Opinion.
- In spite of the enabling act passed
last week by the legislature, It seems
- that the validity of the act Is now to
be questioned. The grounds for this
' ' doubt is the principlo of law which
. makes It Illegal to change the status
of some process while uncompleted.
' Because of this cloud, it is posslblo
tnat the coming election may uo neiu
up by writ of prohibition until the
matter can be settled in the Supremo
Also the proclamation issued by the
- supervisors this week, for the election
on May 4, .declares all of the county
elective offices aro to be filled at this
. .-i HrMn Wlinf ilmn la Mm atntlia ihn
county auditor, clerk, treasurer, sher
iff, and attorney, and chairman of the
board, all of Whom have been elected
" already unUer -the primary law, as
. well as D. Yc. Fleming, one of the
. supervisors, who also received a maj
ority of all the "Votes cast?
An opinion on some of these points
- has been secured from the attorney
i. general by the Republican County
V Committee which will probably bo fol
lowed. The opinion, addressed to Sen
- ator H. A. Daldwin, of the committee,
' was discussed at a meeting of the
County Committee held in Walluku
this week. It holds that while mem-
i. r . i. 1 !,.!,. , M. rr,. I
torial officers cannot be elected under
the primary law, owing to its conflict
with the organic act, county officials
may be, except in the matter of sup
ervisors, which the opinion holds,
- would probably not be valid. The at-
torney general also holds that spoiled
ballots, may not be counted In flgur-
i ,-ing uie toiai vote nasi.
dings for Stuart's Place?
Various Changes Rumored
It seems taken for granted In Ho

court, is to be advanced to the su
