The matter was^Dually tmhiiiittcd to Attoriioy-ticncml^^ laylx-rg, of tin* territory, for an otlleial^opinion. The nltoriicy-gciicrul lias ren-^ilereil an opinion on the i-in-slinii holding^that tin- n'tfistry iiiiimI Im- kept open on that
lay miller the law, and that registration^on that (lay will Im- legal. Him written |^opinion, addressed to Secretary Walker, i^is as follows: I
Iheg leave to siihiiiit the following an- I^MWer to your inquiry touching the ones- |^lion whether the registration, under the |^recent regintry law, on the lath inst. would^Im- legal. Section Ik of the registry law 1^provides that, ^In order to carry into full^force ami effect the provisions of this act,^anil to provide for tlx* registration of ]^voters for the election of state oUlcers MM :^other pnr|m^scs, to Im* held within Mon- I^tana territory on the ttrat TiieMday of |^Octohcr, 1mm'^, pursuant to the terms of^an act of congress relating to the ;^admission of Montana ami other tcrri-^torics, approved Fchrtiury --, Ihkii. and to^-m-riiiil and rci-uirc the rctf [strut ion of^MM prior to ami for the pur|m^se of such^election, the registry agent to Im- ap- i^pointed in June, 1kk!i, or tin* successors to I^such registry itgt-ut shall enter ii|m^ii their !^duticM not later than August 1, !**^:^, anil I^they shall at any time they may Im* called j^ii|m^u to do ho, at their olllces, lM*tween I^the hours of ^^ P. M. ami K P. M. on all j^legal days from and after the 15th^day of August, 1m**!I, to the 5th ;^day of SeptemlM-r. 1kkm, and iM'tween the^hours of lu a. in. and lo p. in. from the 5th^day of SepteinlMT to and including the^15th day of SeptemlM-r, 1kx;^, previous to ^^such election, receive and register the I^names of all persons legally (|iialilled^and entitled to vote at such election, in- '^cording to the provisions of the act of eon-^Kress hereinlM'fore cited, and the provi-^sians of this act. and the law miller which '^such election may Im* held.
Itwill Im* Keen from an inspection of this^statute, that it constitutes a m|m*c iul pro- |^vision intended to apply alone to the elec^^tion provided for in the admission act, to^lake place on the lirst Tuesday of Oeto- ^^iM*r, 1 *^^^!^. anil that it is not a general law^applii-ahle to all electioliM occurring with-^B the coming state of Montana. It^provides that the registry agents ^shall^enter upon their duties not later than^August 1, 1k^!^.^ It provides further .^that ^IM'tween the hours of '_' I*. M. anil^X P. M. on all legal days from and after 1^i lie 15th of August. IkkHI, to the 5th day of^SeptcnitMT. 1kk.i, the registry MMl when^called ti|m^n to do at their ollh e -hall reg^^ister all MMM legally (plalilled to vote.^^It provides further that ^lM*lweeii the^hours of in A. M. and lu 1'. M., from the^5th ilay of Septi*inlM*r to ami including the^15th day ef ScptemlM-r, lnn'l,^ the re gtstry^agent* shall iMMf tin* names of all |m i-^soiis legally i|iialilleil to vote.
Itwill Im* observed that the statute in ex- '^press language includes the llfthteenth^day of SepteiutM-r, Ikkii, km a day on which^registration is authorized to Im* done. In^the preceding clause the limitation that^registration shall Im* done on all legal days^will exclude Sundays; lull the fact that^th^* statute in express terms includes the^flftteciith (lay of SeptemlM'r, which is^.Sunday, limits the other general clause of i^exclusion of those days, and makes it I^legal to register on the llfttecuth day of I^Scptcnilter.
Section21)1, the 5th division, Cicueral^Ijiwk, Kevised Statutes of Montana, pro^^vides that ^The Common I .aw of Kngluinl,^mo far as the same is applicable, and of a^general nature, and not in conflict with^m|M*cial enactments of this Territory, shall^Im* the law and the rule of decision, and^shall Im- considered as of full force until .^repealed hy the legislative authority.^ My '^virtue of this enactment we have in force in^this territory the whole common law on^the subject of Sunday; but this statute is^itself the creature of the MgWMM of^this territory; anil the enactment in the |^siH tiou under consideration of a law hy^which this work can Im* done, and is di^^rected to Im-done on the fifteenth day of^Si-pteiiilM-r, o|m*rates as a MMH oT the^common law.
Whileit is probable that the legislature^ill the passage of this act was not aware^that the fifteenth day of SeptemlM-r fell^on Sunday, still, as a rule of statutory in^^terpretation, the presumption is that they^did know that it fell on Sunday, and that^they meant to autlioi-i.ee the registration^of voters on that day for this m|m*cial elec^^tion; but this doe- u.it in anyway legalize^the registration of voters on any other^Sunday,or for any other election that may^hereafter Im-held under the provisions of^this statute.
Ido not think there can Im* a doubt as to^tin- legality of registration on that day.
Thecourts will Im* inclined to construe^lilM-rally tin* provision* of the registry law^mo as to give all |m-rsoiis entitled to v..ti^^the amplest opportunity to qualify them^^selves for voting that a fair construction^of the law will allow.
