Including district road tares, within the 35 cent limit prescribed.by law. This means that a test is to be made of the question raised as to whether the Ieglilatnre intended that the road taxes thouid be included In the 35 cent levy. The opposite view was taken here, bnt when the tgx commissioner gave a decision the local court came within the limit for all purposes. In Vlflrt county, however, the county court refused to look at it so, and in addition to the 35 cents for usual county purposes they laid a levy in the several districts, sdditional. of anywhere from 10 cents to 33*1-3 cents. The mandamus compels the county court to appear before the Supreme Court and show cause why a levy should not be laid for ail purposes, including district road purposes within the 36 cent limit, unless authorized to lay further levy by vote ol the people.' The writ is made returnable on September, 4, before the Supreme Court at Charles Town. The action is a test and will decide a question for the people of the whole star? over which there has been a considerable amount of dispute.
