Arguments were submitted Sat

hammer, Marion County assessor,

The last legislature passed a
municipal budget bill in which a
road districtt is termed a munici
pal corporation,: something which
a road district apparently cannot
be, as it has no standing officers.
Constitutionality of the act as it
applies to road districts is chal
langed in the suit which Is in the
form of a mandamus to compel the
assessor to levy th tax.
If the circuit coirt and the su
prcme court hold that a road dis
trict is a municipal corporation.
then the road elections are null
and void. Theer ia also a legal
question involved as to whether
the legislative body of the state
can take from the judicial, the
right to determine just what a
road di8tirct is.
Some lawyers hold that the leg
islature is carelessly drawing and
passing the bill providing that a
road district is a municipal cor
poration, had placed impossible
conditions on the road district.
If the new law holds good, ,ctn defegaUon
