Job H. lewis Joins With
Board la Seeking to Settle
The State Highway commission has
asked the supreme court for a further
interpretation of the recent opinion of
Justice Bean on the state highway en
gineering tangle and McXary & Mc
Nary have filed a petition to this ef
fect with the clerk of the supreme
court. The petition asks for a rehear
ing in the case but actually desires on
ly a further interpretation in the mat
ter and additional argument by attor
neys may not be necessary.
State Highway Engineer John H.
Lewis stated today that he would join
with the board in petitioning for a re
hearing as he desired that the matter
be entirely cleared up on all points in
the interests of efficiency and harmony J
in tne department.
Th petition filed asks for a rehear
ing on three points as follows:
First Admitting the repugnancy
of the latter part of section 3, chap
ter 387, laws of 1915, to section 20,
article 4, of the state constitution, yet,
does the former portion of the statute
remain a complete and constitutional
enactment ? The commission and its at
torneys hold that the court's opinion
infers the constitutionality of the form
er portion of the law. This is the por
tion that gives the commission power
to construct the state highways and the
governor, as its chairman, power to ap
point a highway engineer who shnll be
scientifically educated in road building.
Second Considering both chapter
337 of the laws of 1915 and chapter
339 of the laws of 1913, is the duty
of the actual road construction im
posed upon the state engineer ? The
commission holds that it is not.
Third Is the deputy state engi
neer responsible to and under the di
rection of the state engineer, or is he
the creature and answerable to the
state highway commission) The com
mission holds that the later is the
meaning of the law.
