were being held discussing the ques
tion of submitting the bond issuo to

The procedure now will be to file
an amended petition covering the ob
jections raised, and asking that the
County Judge call an election bnsed
on said Petition. The only effect of all
this is to set forward the date of the

In other words, tho Court rWT-
