Seboola fully answer"- toe laquit tx cwtauii
ed In yours o! me iho tnsk 't bm, reply In
tubetanoe was, - that In my oplnroa, tbe pro
ylslotm of section wwtysiwo of the general
tebool law (amt of 1874, p. 147, 68) were ap
plicable to all school districts In the Bute,
whether composed of eitlea, town and vtilsgva
or not, - By the terms of said act aod of the
act of April 26, 1877, (act ot 187C, p. 407),
this Is beyond queauoa. Under said aectton
lorty two, a meeting to make a selection of
text books could enly have been legally bald
In January, 1875, andean only be held at
the expiration ol nve years thereafter, L e. io
January, 188Q. It is further provided tbat
uo change shall be made by tbe Introduc
tion of auy book aot Included 111 the list so
adopt 1. lor tbe period of Ave years liom
ibelr adoption." Tbla provision is prohibi
tory In lis terms, and a change before the ex
piration of tbe term named would be in vio
lation of it. Tbe language need la clear aod
there Is no room tor doubt or for ooustruo
tlon. If any board of director! either fail to
adopt tbe books selected at said meeting,
held under aaction 42, supra; or sball latro-
doce any book on tbe same subject, otber
tbaa so adopted and persist in so doing its
members will subject tbtmscltre to tbe pen
alties prescribed In section ninety--ne of the
general school law. (Acts ol 1874. pages
147-168,) for neglect or retuaal to perform a
duty pertaining to their Office,
In answer to your question, "what Officer
or peraou would be tbe proper one to tuatl
lute proceedings for tbe recovery of the pen
alty imposed by section 91, aupra," I will
state that violations ol aaid section are de
clared lo be misdemeanors, aod tbat there Is
no provision placing tbem oo a looting dif
ferent from oilier misdemeanors; hence, they
mutt be protrcuted In the sauia manner aad
by the same officers.
m TITT8I UO, 161. LOST. -Oa
yroterdey the County Judges, In
gltrb and Cowlrn, over the heads of eight
hundred petitioners, lib not a single remon
atrauce, relused to extend tbe time to tbe
11 day of January next lor the completion of
tbe road. 'Judge Crhrs was in lavor ot It.
Every lawyer tn Versailles, including tbe
county attorney, elected by tbe people as
tbe legal adviser of the court, bad filed ao
opinion In writing, tbat theeoerthed the
authority to extend the time; and not only
ware these opinions put on filet but the
court was told oyer and over again that if
(hey were aot satisfied with tbe opinions ol
tbelr own attorneys, tbey could take the
opinion of any lawyers In tba state. But,
two members of tbe court baylnit prejudged
the rase, as it is said can be piovtd by their
own declarations aod admissions no argu
ment, no petitions could Induce them to act
Impartially lo tbe matter. For tbe good
name ol our county, we trust tbat no Judge
has so far forgotton Its duty as an official and
bis oath as a judge, as to lav timself liable
to tbe criminal law by deciding: a ease be
lore it was presented or beard. What then
influenced tbe court to dlsrecard tbe petition
of eight hundred as good citizens aa ictelli
fent and respectable voters and tax-payers
aa ever signed a pillion? Why insult tbe
petitioners? We take It tor granted the
court was earned tbey bad the lawlul
power to obey tbe requi it ol Iba potttiouers
tbeir own attorney bad advleea tbem tbey
bad the lawlui power to obey tbe request ol
tbe petitioners their own attorney bsd ad
vlaed tbem they bad such authority, aod al
though invited lo do io, tbey did not ask tbe
opinion of outside lawert. lid they act upoo
heir own opinion of what the law was?
Wnen did they become such proiound law
yen? Wbo would have Imagined tbat Squire
Ingilth and Mr. Bowlen were such proiound
coi alitullonal and statutory lawyer?
It Is somewhat remarkable tbat lo tbll In
atance tbelr able legal minds could decide
that it was a saving lo tbe county 10 kill the
road, when, at tbe same term, tbey ordered
a tax of over seven tQOaeand dollar to be
levied to pay Interest oo the railroad bono!
There was no oeceaslty for tbe Icyy now. h
was a voluntary act, and a voluntary tax
saddled upon tbe people. a e
