ABOUT LAW. County Board of Elections Did not Appoint Election Offi cers Yesterday. OPINIONS DIFFER. The new election law is causing trouble in Middlesex. The County Board of Elections failed to name the election officers yesterday because of some doubt as to the interpretation of the act. it was claimed that the official instructions furnished the board with the printed opinions of the Attorney Gfeneral ns to the time the new election officers commence their duties. Dr. Suydam. the secretary of the board, held that the board was bouud to go according to its printed in structions and he did not think that there could be any doubt about their interpretation. The instructions plain ly state that the election board holds over until September and that they shall perform the duties of the board up to that time. The new law states that the election officers shall bo ap pointed on September 11 and the At.tnrnrtv Ooncral has advised Hudson county that they look after the regis tration and election, aud that the old board does not hold over. The board decided to wait, upon the advice of Oliver Kelly, until the Attorney Gen eral makes a written opinion, which he is expected to do very shortly.
