THE ELECTION ORDERED.
The Election on "Dispensary or "No
Dispensary" Will Be Held cn
The election on the uispensary has
been ordered, or rarner the county
supervisor has made request on the
commissioners of election to call the
election. The at orney general holds
that it is the duty of the commission
ers of sta:e election to order said elec
tion upon the request of the county
supervisor and that it should be con
ducted in the same manner as ac
quired by the constitution for gen
eral elections. He concludes his opin
ion as follows:
From an examination of the various
text books. encyclopaedias, State re
po rt . etc.. there is abundant author
itv for the view that where authority
for a special election fails to provide
th- machinery, recourse should be
had to the general election law ac
cepting either this view or the inter
pretation placed upon our election
laws as hereinbefore expressed the
law, the result is the same.
I am, therefore, of the opinion that
the supervisor ordering an election
under the 1904 act (commonly known
as the "Brice act") should direct the
same to the commissioners of elec
tion, that the requirements as to the
size of the ballotts, time of opening
and closing the polls, eligibility of
voted, and all other requirements gov
erning a general election should be
It follows from this conclusion that
the expenses of the election are to be
met just as the expenses of a general
election as governed by section 222 of
the code. If there are no funds avail
able it becomes a matter for legisla
