IMBRY IS 1HE ISiUE Local Registrars Certify the Fact to the Commissioners on the Ground That Applicant Lives in Nashville. Clerk to Comptroller. For the first time perhaps since the registration law has applied to Mau ry county, the registrars have refer red an applicant for registration to the commissioners of election. They could not agree as to the right of the applicant to register and under the statute certified the case to the c om - niissioners for decision. Wiley B. Embry, clerk in the office of the State Comptroller at Nash - ville, is the issue, at the courthouse Tito egUtrurs precinct, K. II. Guest and M. L. Stokes, were unwil - ling to register Mr. Einbry, holding that there was doubt as to his right to vote in this county. The law provides, where the regis trars do not agree, as follows: "If the registrars disagree as to the right of an applicant to be register ed as a voter, they shall register his name and issue him a certificate as In other cases, writing across the face of the certificate the words, "The Registrars Disagree," and, in such case, the applicant may take such certificate to the board of emotion, who shall determine the question of disagreement, and endorse on the cer tificate the , words "Approved" or "Disapproved" as they may decide, and the holder of such certificate shall not be entitled to vote on such certificate unless the word "Approv ed," is endorsed on the same and signed by a majority of said board of commissioners. Shannon's Code 1212.)" A certificate was duly issued to Mr. Embry but upon the face of the same the registrars endorsed: "The regis trars disagree," and signed their names. Now before Mr. Embry can vote this certificate must be taken to the commissioners of election, two of whom must approve the certificate, If two do not approve the certificate Mr. Embry cannot vote. The question, it is admitted, is a, rather close one. For several years Mr. Embry has resided in Nashville where he has been a clerk in the of-'turned home and get a full week's fice of the Comptroller. He ha3 al-jrest between dates, ways voted In this county, when he j We are going to have a "Big Show. voted during that time.

It is also contend ed that under the registration laws that voters must register from a par ticular and specific place or home and that if they move from the same before the next registration they can not vote unless they shall again reg ister. Mr. Embry stated this moaning that he was surprised at the attitude of the registrars, that he felt that he had a clear legal right to vote here and would insist upon his right3. It will be up to the board of elec- tions to officially decide what Is a res-1 ident within the meaning of the elec tion law. E. W.
