Chairman Committee on i Electicus, New Orleans, Louisiana : In answer to your communication of Saturday, January 7, 1871, I beg to sub mit as my opinion that the notice of in tention to contest the seat of the Sen stors or Representatives should be given within thirty days from the first 'Mon pay of November (election day.) Each branch of the General Assembly is, by the constitution, made the judges of the return of qualification of its mem bers, but this does not prevent the Gen. eral Aasembly from presenting such rules , for determining such returns and quali fications as it may deem proper. The rule prescribed in section 1431, Revised Statutes, seams to be sacramental. The "Board of Canvasers" are required to meet it L the State capital within ten days after the election to compile the votes and make proclamation of the result. Say it should take ten days to complete the work, there still remain ten days of the thirty, from day of election, within which notice can be given, being exactly the time allowed for contests of elections in courts of justice. Besides, the wording of the law is differ ent between contests for parish offices be fore courts of justice, and contests before the General Assembly. It will be seen by section 1418, Revised Statutes, that after the close "of the elec tion." Thus, in the first instance ("After the close, etc.,") referring to the procla mation of the result, and in the second place ("Of the election") to the day on which the election was held. I am clearly of the opinion that the notice should be given within thirty days from the day on which the election was held.
