Ballots deposited In tbe wrong box are to be counted. Retnrus are to be made by supervisors in duplioate to the obeif supervisor, who is to tabulate and refer tbem to the United StateB board of canvassers of tbe congressional vote, which is to be appointed by the United State Circuit Court, and consisting of three citizens ol tbe state not more than two of whom are to be of tbe same political party.
