NO DOUBT OF
VOTE IN JUNE
Attorney General Declares
Chief Legal Authority In State Haw
Temerity to Announce That Coat
ing Bend Election Is Legal 1st
Spite of "Heavy Thinkers" Here
Duncan and Wiley Proved Correct.
As was to be expected, some of tha..
wiseacres have suddenly discovered
that the order for the special clectloa
to vote on the highway election t
vote on the highway bonds, la no
good. This attitude does not come as
a surprise to Messrs. Duncan and
Wiley. They' anticipated every rjoej
tion that has been raised, and manjt
that have not been. That la why titer
spent days preparing the order triofc
was signed by the County Court.
The first bfg question rested on
whethef the election that Li to ho
held on June 3 Is a special or a gen
eral election. If a "special" election,
then the bond question must go on
the ballot by petition. If a 'central""
election, then the county court can.
by Its own act, place the question be
fore the people. The wise ones raid
It wag a special election, ind tbe
fact that the order said ."general
election"' knocked it out. But, Duncan
and Wiley knew better. They knew
the law and framed the order c-cord-
The discussion, however, haearaer
so positive and, by the wt- 't wsa
entirely outside of the ranK3 of the
attorneys of the city that Dii'ifct
Attorney placed the matter before
Attorney General Brown. No one w'U
question the opinion of this gentle
man and he said in atelojrfm. to

That disposes ot all the (.intentions
of tbe vest-pocket legal '.umaurljs.

BLACK WAR BREAD
AGAIN IN EUROPE
PARIS, April 25. An Inrrense In
the milling percentage which wilt
virtually put the world back on a

months Is a part of Hoovet's pro
gram. NEW YORK, April 25. Federal
wheat director Julius Barnw said
that the Americans will continue to
eat white bread despite th9 retura
of the Europeans of the war bread
Reports which havo been brought
In from time to time' recently certain,
parts of the city relative to writing
and drawings on public buildings and
other places, show that this practice
has reached a point where steps must
be taken to Btamp it out.
The offense has been committed by
children, who do not realize tho grav
ity ot Its naturo nor tho penalties li
able for those who perpetrate writing
of this character. Thoro is going to
be a genoral cloanup of this kind
along with other pests in tho city,
declare, those who ore out to elevate
the moral conditions here. A prom
inent womnn declared today that un
less this practice ceased immediately,
those guilty would be prosecuted to
the fullest extent of the law.
