Gov. Garcelon Leaven them te the Supreme
Gov. Garcelon has submitted the fol fel fol
Iewinij questions for the opinion of the
supreme court of Maine :
1. When the governor ami council
decide that there is no return from a city
en which representatives can be sum
moned te attend and take their seats in
the Legislature, is it their duty te order a
new election, or is it comeetent for the
Heuse of lleprcsentives, if it shall appear
that there was an election of such repre
sentatives in fact, te admit them te seats,
though no return thereof was made and
delivered into the oilice of the secretary of
'2. It is competent for the governor and
council te allow the substitution of ether
evidence in place of the returned copies of
such lists as are provided for in article
4, part 1, section e. of the constitution te
enable them te determine what persons
appear te lie elected representatives te
the Legislature by a plurality of votes re
"5. Is a return signed by less than a
majority of the selectmen of a town or the
aldermen of a city valid within, the Iu-
quirements of thesauie-seetien-
4. Is a return by the aide" men of a city
which does net give the riitmber of votes
for each person voted for as a member of
the Legislature, and does net show what
persons were voted for as such members in
any one of the several wards of such eity,
a valid return within the requirements of
the same section ?
S.JAre id urns from towns or cities which
are net attested by town or city clerk valid
within the same section'.'
0. Have the governor and council a
right te reject returns of the election of
members of the Legislature as required bv
the same section from the ellicers of towns
which were net made, signed or scaled up
in the open town meeting'.'
7. Is the return of two persons puqwrt
ing te be the selectmen of a town valid and
sulltcicnt evidence of the town, when ita
pcars that at the time of the meeting at
which the election was had there were but
two selectmen of that town'.'
8. Can a person who is net a citizen of
the United States at the time be legally
elected or constituted a selectman of a
!). If a ballet has a distinguishing mark
in the judgment of the governor and coun
cil such as would make it illegal under the
statute have they authority te disregard it
in their ascertainment of what persons ap
pear te be elected, wheie it appears by the
ellieial return of the eiliccrs of the town
that such vote was received by the select
men subject te the objection and its legality
referred te the governor and ceut.cil for
10. If the names of persons appear in
the return without any number of votes
being stated or carried out against them,
cither in words or iigures, is it the duty of
the governor and council te treat these
persons as having the same number of
votes as another person received for the
same office, and whose name is placed first,
in the list if they lind dots miliar the fig
ures or words set against such ether pel pel
sen's name '.'
11. Have the governor and council the
legal right te decide what kind of evidence)
they will receive and what the mode of
proceeding before them shall be te enable
them te determine the genuineness of re
turns requited by the article and section
of the constitution above mentioned?
12. If the governor and council have
before them two lists of votes returned
from the same town, differing materially
from each ether in the number of votes re
turned as cast for the same persons, but
identical in all ether respects, both having
been duly received at the secretary's office,
and they have no evidence te enable them
te determine which is the true and genu
ine return, are they required te treat
either of them as ralid, and if se, which ?
