Boyer Mandamus Is Refused
By Supreme Court, Vote
Now Impossible
Early Ruling Upon Legality
Of Bonds Hoped for by
I Attorney Trindle .
The state, supreme court Vester
dar again refused to grant a ma
damas writ which wosld compel a
rote November 8 by cltlsens; of Sa
lem on the proposed repeal of the
$2,500,000 water bond Issue. The
court sustained the opinion ot
Judge L. H. McMahan who last
week refused a writ of mandamus
against U. Q. Boyer, county clerk,
which would hare forced Boyer to
put the water repeal measure on
the general ballot . .
' City Attorney Trindle, . pleased
with the- decision, which con
formed to the court's decision of
'Monday refusing a mandamus
against Mark Poulsen,- city re
corder, immediately- announced
that he would now proceed to
push tor an early and final deci
sion on the legality of the chart
er amendment, adopted December
15. 1931, by roters of Salem. Un
der this amendment the purchase
of construction of a water plant
by the city was authorized.
Trindle said he looked for an
early decision by Judge, L. G. Le-welling-
on the second amended
complaint filed by the city asking
for a declaratory judgment on the
charter amendment. Opponents of
the charter amendment, repre
sented by Walter E. Keyes and
John H. Carson have demurred to
the city's ' complaint In circuit
court and the demurrer, baring
been argued. Is now with Judge
Lewelling for a decision.
Appeal to Supreme '
Court Next Step -
Should a demurrer be sustain
ed, Trindle expects to appeal to
the state supreme court and thus
get a final determination from
that court on the water bond issue
vote. - . :v
Meanwhile anothe4aiV-o-rest
- the validity ot the charter amend
ment Is pending in federal court
in Portland. The opponents of the
bond issue are plaintiffs In that
suit which is before Judge Alger
fee. ... ' a - . ' - :
The state supreme court ruled
Wednesday that the water repeal
measure could not go on the gen
eral . ballot November 8 because
the petitions for the election had
been tiled too late and because
the certification made by Record

are likewise tardy. The court held
