Tho House is expected to pass the Cline bill which gives the Secretary of War brnaa pow ers over the hvdro-electric companies on the American side o the Falls.

If the ftrict letter of the law passed by the last legislature authorizing tho county courts of the state to Issue and sell bonds or county warrants for the purpose of building good roods and maintaining permanent highways is to bo adherred to, thero i a doubt ex isting in tho minds of many who have become interested in the mntter, as to whether or not the Marion county'court pan legally call and hold a special elec tion for tho purpose of voting on the S."iO,0"0 bond Issue, now being con sidered, until after the next gcnoral election has been hold. In support of this belief, section 7, of chapter 103, of the 1913 session laws, is referred to. The section reads n follow: "The county court shall have printed to use at suc h special election lineup' iug bond election for good roads pur IKises) the samo number of ballots, both official Imllots snd sample ballots, as would be reuired by the election laws at general election. The election shall be conducted and the votes canvassed in the same manner as s general eloc shall act as Judges snd clerks st such "lection. special election." Old Officers Out. In the event a special good ronds election Is culled iu this county, it per haps cannot bo held for the reason the judges and clerks serving at the lust geneml election, went out of office on the first of January ami, according to the section just quoted, it is necessary that they serve as such Judges ami elec tions at a special election held for goods mads purposes. Although a new set of judges and clerks hBvo been appointed Slid are now subject to call nt future elections lliii year, the section specifically says thnt the Judge and clerks serving at the next preceding election must act at spncinl bond elections. Thus it can be readily realized that Inasmuch as the old officers of election have resigned, and Hie last general election was .held In 1912, there would be no legally appointed judges and clerks to conduct S special election for the pur- DlHtrlcts Changed. Another feat urn which would make it almost impossible to use old clerks and judges of election is that tho pre iucts were changed the first of the year. .More Jmlges aim cierm woun he required than served at tho last gen erul election.
