NEW JERSEY ELECTION.
To Vol) on Constitutional Amend
ments In Heptemher.
Thknton, July 84. The attorney gen
eral has decided that the speoial elec
tion on the constltutio al amendments,
the principal one being to do away with
the clause in the constitution prohibit
ing special legislation for any munici
palities in the state, must be hold in
iteptcmlier. There have been some
doubts alamt the matter, and Uovernor
Abbett has reclved numerous inquiries.
The ballot reform luw makes no pro
visions for the election. One of the dif
ficulties is thnt by virtue of the uew law
the term of the old election oflltrxs ex
pires on Aug. Oil, aud the nevV board
does tint organise until after the time
for holding the constitutional election.
Tho attorney general, to whom the
mutter wus referred, decl led that tho
election must be held under the law as
it existed before the liallot reform law
was passed. Among tho reasons
aacriU'd for this conclusion is that the
act providing for the spvciid cleetiou
provides its own machinery for holding
ihe election, which, though inconsistent
with the provisions oi the liallot reform
law, is iKreniptnry mi l In force because
approved n a later da'e.
