As much lias boon said in regard lo
the validity of tho new registry law,
on account of an error which ci opt in
to the bill, wo called on 4)r. J. W.
Strange, of (his place, wjio wa chief
clerk of I lie SlnleeJennte. and obtained'
from him the history of the bill and
Vrlicrc the error occurred.
The bill was introduced in the
House by Hon. Jonathan ltotirno Jr. ,
and in tilt Senalo by lion. Joseph
Billion. The House bill Jailed that
ody lifter having been printed alid
ilaelid upon tlib desk of each nieitt
crj iuid having been duly considered
bv IhtJ eonimlttdo.
The (Jriginal bill provided for nn
election to beheld "On Hie llrsi Mon
day in June, 1880, and theieafler bi
ennially. ' ' The bill cnine to the Sen
ate, without any material amendment ,
and none whatever in regard lo the
time of holding elections. In the
Senate th'd bill vVas immediately read !
first and second times under Ftlten
Motl of the ruleS. and referred lo a
committee. Hy that committee it was
Ulily considered and referred back to
Ihc Senate and its passage recommen
ded. It passed the Senate an it eainc
from the Jfouxe. ilud was referred
back lo the House for enrollment. In
mrolling the bill, the elerxs, in (lid
dace of wrihng it out as it was In tile
py before them, and as passed by
jcJlll houses, chiliigcd It so that it
bads as found in the printed laws of
J88o. ib made it read "188.V' in the
li'.nce of 188C It is the duty of
the enrolling committee tocomiarc ail
bnrolled bills with the original or copy
lliat passed. This, that committee
'evidentiv failed to do. and without
buy comparing, the bill was reported
otho llouso as "correctly enrolled. '
t tvaf then Hgncd by the sponger and
in clerk of the House, and triiusmit
cd to the president of the Senate,
for hU signature, lie signed the bill
and directed the c liier clerk of the
Senate to return the same to (he spea
ker of the House, to be by hiln, or
lereit trainMiiittod ti iiie goVeriior for
lis approval, which was dime, h)
iopsidi'riug he bill', the governor had
jefbrij hipi tho pllnted copy, whjah
was substantially the san.ie as passed,
uid slipposing it had been properly
mrollcd, lip approved the , snino,
hereby making it a law. As no bill
s ever read ly inly mcpibcr of either
House alter its enrollment, and (ho
error in (the law whs made by tho en
cilliug clerk, it lid the bill not haying
jljdli compared by I ho proper ediiiinlt
xp, ny member of either Mouse can
jo censtued for the error. The fault
est s entirely upon the shoulders ol the
enrolling commiiteu and its clerks,.
. The law suyij "A, genera? olecllou

Kln(c, on the tirst Monday in June,

The constitution of the Sjato of Orp:
pun, requires ' 'ail election to be held
pn tho lrstt Monday . in June, 1MH,
ind fhcrcanqr biennially." Any
jaw changing tlje linm of the election,
jwould eouiu in direct eontlift wjth the
expressed tei'iits of, (ha cousiitutlon of
ho Stale, tlnis lealyiig any measure,
jlxjiig lho,liluo of holding an election
(liferent, froiu that hid,, the .Sjale

jWcrq this tho ease in t'.o registry law,
flirouglnHit tilt) whole prociiediilgs of
jlhoblll, the url-o1' undoubtedly would
jio fatal . to. tho validity,' of .the law.
I tut such was not the. cuso, as is clear
y seotirf The error did -UOt e,ist a,t

p"Q it had been signed, by the gover

ft is. that of t)iu date "IfjS'V' was
vlitinged by tho cnrollingi clerk to
)J 1886, ' J the governor signed u hill
ihat had not. passed.' Dot that, it 1
i:luiihH, cannot, or at least will not
f invalidate the whole litw, for it can w
t;h(w,ii by Ihu records that the error
,va, purely a, olorleal one. Again it
