OLCOTT GOVERNOR ONLY
WHILE SECRETARY SAYS
ATTORNEY OF PORTLAND
A brief in the cuso of Oleott vs. Hoff
regnrdirg the itutus of the question us
to whether the governor can resign the
office of secretary of state, lias just
been submitted by Frank S. Grant of
Portlaml, in which he deals tit length
with nil phases of the question. On one
point he is very specific that so long
as the governor retains in his own per
sonality the functions of secretary of
stute he must continue to perform the
duties of governor. But when his term
of office as secretary of state expires,
and no new governor is elected, the
duties of governor devolve upon the
.i ,. i . ii . i. .i.i.. i L.t
his own successor as secretary or stute.
The moment he resigns as secretary of
state he also resigns us governor, und
the president of the senate must assume
his duties, including the duty or ap
pointing a secretary of state. Owing
to the fact thut the terms of governor
mil secretary of state expire at the
next general election, a new governor
must be elected, since the constitution
piovide that the secretary ot suite
shall hold office until the new governor
is elected. The writer also holds that
the incumbent is legally entitled to both
the salnrv of governor nod secretary of
stute, which does not constitute double
