of tato from having all the returns
tabulated long before tho offlclal days

Two conflicting sections of tho stat
ute, nelthor of which appears to havo
over been repealed, niako It uncertain
what tho state canvassing board Is to
do. It Is likely that It has nothing to
do except canvass tho vote on tho
prohibitory amendment and the liar
man food amendment. Ono section
relates to tho duties of the stato
board at a tlmo when annual general
eloctlons woro held. Biennial elections
aro now hold undor nn amendment to

board shall canvass tho voto cast for

supreme and district courts, and ro
gents of tho university, and also for
