We publish elsewhere in this issue,
the "fence law," as passed by the

The~ Attorney General has issued a
quo warranto against C. W. Buttz,
who claims to have been elected Soli

general election. The complaint sets1
forth that Bluttz held the office of So
licitor and Representative to Congress
and that his acceptance of the
the offico of Congressman vacated the
office of Solicitor. The Supreme
Court will doubtless oust him. Thus
"one by one the roses fall."
