Dr J J Looze Gross Lyons Company Grand Rapids Wisconsin j The Supervisor of Assessments Lights in the County Board Overlook Several Points on Law Shortly after the election of Peter Camley to the office of supervisor of Assessments by the county board at its last session rumors began to spread about that the election was illegal and that Supervisor of Assessments J W would hold over until another election was had and a legally elected successor secured and qualified Geo W Brown of the county board concluded It would ba well to know what the facts in the case were so he submitted the question to the state fax commission and asked for instructions On January 4th the commissioners sub- milled a lengthy opinion with numerous i citations of law and statutes to the effect that the election in question was illegal and that Supervisor of Assessments Cochran should continue to administer the duties ol his office until a successor was elected and qualified The illegality in the election consisted in the electing one of its members to fill the office which the statutes of the state plainly interdict After the first election of Mr McCamley it seems that this point occurred to some of the board and an attempt was made to remedy the defect by having Mr McCamley resign his position as supervisor and here the lawyers on the board fell down again They had Mr McCamley tender his ignation to the county clerk instead of the city of Grand Rapida the second ward of which he represented on the county board To make his resignation legal he would have to file it with the city council of Grand Rapida and that body would have to accept it before he could get out of office After this at- tempted resignation of Mr McCamley the board proceeded to elect him again to the office but it seems with no better success than on their first attempt According to the state tax Mr Cochran must hold his office j until his successor is elected and I fled aud this he would probably do even jif ho were not under 55000 bonds to do so It 13 safe to say that the next election will be a legal one If it takes all the lawyers In Wood county to make It such We should like to publish tha whole opinion of the tux commission It Is so conclusive lu its findings but time and apace but we have given above the glat of opinion Webb men assert that they are the first on the grounds and will be the last to leave To the surprise of many Wood county people it is reported that John H White of who was looked upon as the choice of many tion assemblymen for sergeant at arms will not be a candidate and Chairman Connor presents a AVood county date in the person of Nicholas for that position His selection has been ratified by the legisla- ture There is apparently not fo much re form talk connected with this meeting of the state and to all ances there will be much less fight and much more cordiality among the members than at the last meeting oi the legisla- ture The primary election law and the ad- valorem taxation law for railroads have been passed and there are no very important questions for the lators to pass upon There may be a long contest in selecting a senator bur this should breed uo ill feeling and the probabilities are that it will not The men to lear LaFollette as a candidate more than they do the dates already in the field and if it is found no other man is strong enough to beat the senator and their other com- for the place LaFollette will be called upon to become a candidate Medical Experts I Have B Goggins and Advertising A L Fontaine 1 be Doctor's 1
