Only resident freeholders, or taxpayers, both men and women, are entitled to vote at this election. The telephone people must defray all expenses of the election. The election will be held at the fire house and the following judges were appointed: Josiah Southwick, J. R. Rawlins and J. Pond.

Page, proprietor of the Southern, waited on County Treas urer Harvey L. Carter and demanded a retail liquor dealer's license, at the same time tendering $264 in payment for six months license. The license was, of course, refused, and today, through his attorney, H. L. Myers, Mr. Page sued out a writ of alternative mandate to compel the county treasurer to issue a license. It is expected that the case will be promptly brought to an issue at the beginning of the April term of court. Attorney Myers proposes to bring two actions, one for an alternative writ of mandamus and another to re view the proceedings of the board of county commissioners with a view to showing that there were such irregu larities in the election as to invalidate it. This phase has never, been passed upon by the courts, and should it fail, the saloonists will have exhausted all legal expedients to knock out the local option law of this state.
