THE SUPREME COURT October 10 and Show Cause Not Be Removed Supremo Court proceedings in Quo Warranto und a writ has been issued ly the Supremo Court requiring Judgo Han Is to appear in the Su- ;i.eme Court on October 10th and I i how cause why ho should not turn over the oflico to Mr. Clark. Judge Harris says he Is acting on the' advice of attorneys to test the recall law, as to whether or not It is self executing, and that Inasmuch ns there are many Important mat ters to be handled by the County Court In the near future. It is neces sary that tho legal question be de cided, as to who Is the real officer. Judge Harris says he would be wil ling to step down and out right now hut that he has been advised by emi nent attorneys to bold onto the office until the rights to it are established by the Supreme Court so that there will be no after efTects. The Supreme Court will probably pass upon the legal questions In a short time so that If the men elected at the recall election are legally en titled to' the office they will assume their duties Bhortly and if they are not entitled to the ofTlces under the law there will be no harm done.
