two additional circuit Judgeships

ing the fees of the circuit courts,

the state until the next general
election In November, 1931.
This was announced by the at
torney general's department, fol
lowing a careful study of the law

other Oregon laws having to do
with the filing of referendum peti

patches that the sponsors of the
proposed referendum measures
hoped to have them referred to the
voters under the law authorizing
a special general election in June.

a special general election on June
23, provides specifically that such
election. If held, shall be restrict
ed to refetendum measures Invok
ed against the so-called excise tax
law- and the Intangibles tax law.
Both of these laws were approved
at the 1929 legislative assembly.
Because of the legislative limit
ations contained la the law au
thorizing the special general elec
tion, the attorney general said It
would not be possible to call such
election to refer referendum mea
sures attacking the acts creating
the two circuit Judgeships In Mult
nomah county and increasing the
circuit court fees.
