C.'ilBRATlON TODAY CAU5LS What Causes Smile of TEXAS CASE mu REVERSED AT water Combine AN OPINION ON SUBJECT OF WEARING APPAREL those Who Intend to Vote Fraudulently, in Order to Carry the Water Bonds, Should First ' Consider the Law. Many to be Idle Who Will Go BacK to Work Tomorrow. TO TUB KVENING CITIZEN: ALMTQUERQUE, N. M., MARCH 31. REPLYING TO YOUR RE QUEST FOR MY OPINION AS TO THE PROPER CONSTRUCTION OF THE QUALIFICATION OF VOTERS UNDER THE ACT OF CONGRESS OF MARCH 4, 1808, UNDER WHICH IT IS CLAIMED THAT THE CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE HAS THE RIGHT TO ISST-E BONDS FOR THE PUR CHASE OF THIS WATER WORKS. " HE LANGUAGE USED IN THE ACT IS AS FOLIXWS: ON THE QUESTION OF THE ISSUANCE OF SUCH BONDS NO PER SON SHALL BE QUALIFIED TO VOTE EXCEPT HE BE IN ALL REV SPECTS A QUALIFIED ELECTOR AND THE OWNER OF REAL OR PER SONAL PROPERTY SUBJECT TO TAXATION WITHIN THE MUNICI PALITY. THE QUESTION THEN IS WHO IS THE OWNER OF REAL OR PER SONAL PROPERTY SUBJECT TO TAXATION WITHIN THE MUNICIPAL ITY? IT CERTAINLY DOES NOT MEAN THAT ANY PERSON WHO HAS A FINCUnt RING ON HIS FINGER, OR A WATCH IN HIS POCKET. OR FIVE DOLLARS IN HIS POCKET BOOK. WHICH IS PREAMBULATING PROPERTY AND MAY LEAVE THE MUNICIPALITY WITHIN FIVE MIN UTES AFTER A VOTE HAS BEEN CAST, IS THE OWNER OF REAL OR PERSONAL PROPERTY SUBJECT TO TAXATION WITHIN THE MUNICI PALITY. IT IS A CARDINAL RULE OF CONSTRUCTION THAT THE LANGUAGE OF A STATUTE IS TO RECEIVE A REASONABLE CON STRUCTION IN VIEW OF THE INTENT OF THE LEGISLATURE. IT "WAS THE INTENTION OF CONGRESS TO RESTRICT VOTING UPON SUCH A QUESTION TO PERSONS POSSESSED OF REAL OR PERSONAL PROPERTY UPON WHICH A TAX COULD BE LEVIED AND ENFORCED FOR THE PAYMENT OF THE INDEBTEDNESS TO BE CREATED A3 THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION, AND NO PERSONAL PROPERTY AVITHIN THE MUNICIPALITY CAN BE HELD TO BE SUCH PROPERTY UNLESS IT IS SUCH PROPERTY AS CAN BE LEVIED UPON AND SOLD FOR THE PAYMENT OF TAXES. THIS CONSTRUCTION IS GIVEN TO THE WORDS "TAXABLE PROPERTY" IN AT LEAST ONE CASE I FIND IN MONTANA, CUSTER COUNTY VS. YELLOWSTONE COUNTY, 9 PA CIFIC 58G, 6 MONTANA. 39. THE COURT THERE HOLDS THAT TAX ABLE PROPERTY SIGNIFIES SOMETHING OF VALUE, SUBJECT TO ASSESSMENT AND TO BE LEVIED ON AND FOR TAXES, AND FUR THER ADDS. "THE MERE ASSESSMENT OF PROPERTY DOES NOT MAKE IT TAXABLE." IT MUST BE CAPABLE OF BEING LEVIED UPON AND SOLD, OTHERWISE IT IS NOT TAXABLE. THIS SEEMS TO BE TOO PLAIN, OTHERWISE IT COULD NOT BE SUBJECTED TO THE PAYMENT OF THE INDEBTEDNESS CREATED AS THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION. TO GIVE THIS STATUTE ANY OTHER CONSTRUC TION WOULD SIMPLY BE TO NULLIFY THE EVIDENT INTENTION OF C ONGRESS IN REQUIRING THIS ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATION FOR A VOTER VOTING UPON THE ISSUANCE OF BONDS. IT CAN HARDLY BE SAID THAT ANY VOTER CAN BE FOUND WITHIN THE LIMITS OF MUNICIPALITY WHO HAS NOT POME ARTICLE OF PERSONAL PROP ERTY BESIDES HIS AV EARING APPAREL. AS ABOVE STATED, IT IS A CARDINAL RULE OF- CONSTRUCTION THAT THE LANGUAGE OF A STATUTE IS NOT TO BE SO CONSTRUED AS TO DEFEAT THE EVI DENT PURPOSE OF THE LEGISLAURE IN USING IT. RESPECTFULLY, AV. B.

There has been so much said, the past few days, regarding the efforts of the Gillenwater-Macpherson syndicate to carry the water bonds by the voting of alleged taxpayers (those having watches, a penknife, a few collar buttons and other necessary wearing apparel), that a representative of The Evening Citizen, this morning, called at the office of Hon. Ncill B.

There are parties here In town whom I know, who came here In a box car, and never paid any taxes, but got situations from the city and county.
