i GRIFFITH ORDERS '

Fate of Commission Form to Be
I Lewie A. Griffith, M. D., mayor of
Columbia, yesterday ordered an elec!
tion for 'September 26 on the quesI
tion of recall for the commission
; form of government. The order was
, issued under a recent decision by
Judge Mendel L. Smith.
- Mayor Griffith gave out the followjing
I "I have ordered the election for the
j recall of the commission form of government.
The election will be held
Tuesday, September 26, 1916.
"I originally refused to order this
election. My refusal was based on a
j written opinion rendered by the city
| attorney, C. S. Monteith.
i "Now that the court has passed
I upon the matter, and having a high
i regard for the opinion of Judge M.
|-L. Smith, I can see no good reason
i for appealing this cuse to the State
j supreme court.
j "The earliest time under the lav in
i which I could order the election
1 would be Monday, 0ept. 26. I think
I our citizens know as well now how
they would like to vote on this question
as they ^vould later.
"An early election, with this question
settled, will quiet the unrest
among our citizens and be conducive
i to the best interest of the city, its
