Rev. Mr. Clark speaks on Fri

Marion Elections Hit
The question arises in connec
tion with special elections held in
29 road districts in Marion coun
ty last Saturday, apparently not
in compliance with the new bud
get law, thereby making it pos
sible that the special levies may
be invalidated. Levies totaling
$54,331.56 were voted.
Every county court in the state
of Oregon, with the possible ex
ception of Lincoln county, is fac
ing the question of having called
road elections! that may be illegal.
According to tne old law as
followed in years past, road dis
trict elections lor assessing spe
cial millage levies for improve
ments of roads, were held during
the month of November. Notices
were published two weeks in ad
vance and 10 days before the date
of meeting notices were posted
in the road district.
New Law Involved
Bift the last legislature passed
a new law regarding elections ol
this kind in municipalities, and
this law became " effective last
May. According to this new law
there! should be two meetings,
one to prepare a budget and the
other to vote oh the budget.
The new law says that notice
of the first, meeting must be pub
lished iu the district or notices
posted 20 days; before the first
budget meeting, and then again
10 days before the election. The
new law would necessitate the
calling of at least three meetings
in each road district before esti
mate could be presented. Marion
county, as well as others, pro
ceeded this year according to tiie
old law, and therein brought the
validity of the elections into
In the new law it is especially
made plain that a road district is
a municipality ind must proceed
according to the 1921 general
laws of Oregon.
Funds May be Lacking
The difficulty now facing raod
districts that have already voted
is whether the elections already
held are null and void. If bf
bandamus proceedings the su
preme court should be asked to
pass on the question and the elec
tions adjudged illegal, there
would be no recourse, and as a
consequence no road improve
ment this year.
As no provisions are made for
surveys in each road district, the
district bodies have no means of
accurately ascertaining the am
ounts to be set aside in making
out the itemized estimates as re
quired by the new law.
