Says Cities Given

Keyee, representing T. M. Hicks,

Poulsen and August Hucksstein,
who seeks the mandamus against
Boyer, contended in court yester
day that the state law and con
stitution permits municipalities of
more than 2000 population to con
duct initiative . and referendum
votes under the provisions of their
own ordinances. He cited a por
tion of the state constitution In
defense of his position.
Keyes held that City Recorder
Poulsen should now have printed
special city ballots containing the
water bond repeal proposal. Poul
sen in addition, Keyes contended,
should give legal notice to all
voters, 10 or more days before
the November g election, and
should leave the ballots with the
judges and clerks of election, to
gether with special ballot boxes.
The administration of the voting
and the counting of the special
ballots Would be left to the var
ious boards, Keyes contended.
Claim No Method
To Certify Measure
City Attorney Trindle declared
to the court that inasmuch as the
city ordinance provided no way
for the city recorder to certify the
proposed repeal measure to the
eounty clerk within the time the
state law held mandatory, there
was no legal jvay in which the
measure could come before the
voters at the November election.
He also contended the state law
expressly provided that the county

Salary for Stenographer,

Attorney is Legal
The full legal right of the Mar
lon county court to pay a stenog
rapher for the district attorney's
office out of county funds and
to pay for an assistant district
attorney from the county prohi
bition fund was upheld here yes
terday by Judge Arlio Q. Walker.
The case at Issue was that of
John Carson against the Marion
county court and Judge Walker's
decision came on a demurrer filed
by the court to Carson's com
plaint. Walker overruled the de
murrer offered by the defendant
without asking for briefs or com
pelling litigants to extend him
for the decision.
Judge Walker was sent here
yesterday by Chief Justice Bean
