Palled to Appear
There was considerable delay In
getting tho polls open In some of the
precincts and as a result the pros
pects for some of the derelict oil
plats who were to have served at
= the polls being fined are among the
probabilitiesUnder
Under the law governing elec
tions which also governs registra
tions any election official who with
out a good reason does not serve or + i
provide a substitute Is liable to a
fineLast
Last year the commissioners had
nine such cases and went before the
county judge l Jor warrants but he
requested that the matter be re
ferred to the grand Jury The grand
jury took no action In tho matter
and nothing was done about prose
cuting the cases
Tho commissioners this timef f
probably will prosecute those who
wore absent to make an example of
them arid prevent a similar condi
tion at the election
