the Act of 1870 in this county where
there has len a contest, the opinion
of Jadce MvUzer will be found of

in case ot a contest will render tho
proceeding lengthy, and oxpensivo
Below is the opinion in full :
This is'a proceeding under the Act
of May 18th 1870 P. L. 178 to divide
tho Township of Greenwood into two
Election Districts, so as to suit the con
venience of the inhabitants thereof.
The petition for this nnrposo was
presented to the Court of Qiartcr Ses
sions of said County of Columbia and
on Iho 10th day of February 1888
Commissioners wero appointed to in
quire into tho propriety ot granting
the prayer of petition. They reported
in favor of dividing said Xownship in
to two Election Districts, and on tha
21th, day of bpU 1888 their report
was conhrmed .Nisi, by said Uourt.
On the 28th day of November A,
V. 1888, exceptions to this report
were filed by certain inhabitants of
Greenwood Township. These excep
lions are six in number but it is ad'
mitUid that the only ones worth dis
cussing are Second, Third, and Fourth
which are as follows : 'Jail, "ihe Uom
missioners under the amended petition
of May 14. 1888, proceeded to meet
and make a division lino dividing tho
Election District without complying
witn the urder o: uourt.'
3rd. "No notice of the time and
place of meeting was given the inhabi
tants of the Township after Miy 14
1888, by the commissioners, nor any
4th. "The inhabitants of the Town
ship had no notice of meeting of the
uommissioners dulyia. 1888, and Aug-
uat 15. 1888, at which last meeting,
tho division line was agreed upon and
run dividing said Township into two
Election Districts, and at which two
meetings they discharged their dnties
in an illegal manner.
It appears from tho record in this
case, and tho facts admitted that tho
Commissioners were directed by the
Order of the Court, to give five days
notice, by t least six handbills written,
or printed and posted up in public
places in said Township, of the time
and place of meeting, for tho purpose
oi discharging tee duties ot their ap
pointment ; mat mcy tirst mot on tho
zzndoi aiarcn.J as, at the Hotel in Mill
ville, and that notice of this meeting
had been given according to law,
mac alter ncannir tcstinvinv for and
against a division, the Commissioners
adjourned that tboy met again on tho
4th day of May 1888, after giving five
uayB nouco as required, anu resumed
their investigations. Notice having
in the mo in ti mo been given that an
application would be made to tbo next
Uourt of Uuarter bessions by tho neti
tioners, for an amendment to tho order,
tho Commissioners again adjourned
after recelvisg petitions, and remon
strances from tho Citizens of the Dis
trict. That at both these meetings
different lines were proposed and dis
cussed pro and con, but no Hue was
agreed upon by the Commissioners
upon either of said days.
On tho 14th day of May A. D. 1888,
a petition was filed amending the
original petition which reads as fol
lows s Tho polling place in ono to bo
located at Milt ville, and in tho other at
Itobrifburcr, shall bo changed to read :
Ono of wGich said polling places shall
bo located at Millvillo, and the other
wherever tho Commissioners may de
termine. Tho Commissioners again met on
tho 10th day of July 1888, at Blooms
burg, without having given any notico
to tho inhabitants, and which conse
quently was not attended by any of
the Citizens of said Township.
At this meeting, tho matter of the
division was talked over and consider
ed by tho Commissioners, and tho di
vision lino as reported, being one
about a milo or thero about still further

ond meeting, and never before propos
od, was then and there adopted and
determined upon, this meeting was for
th1 purpose of considering the evi
dence in I hit case, and determining up.
on a report.
That tho Commissioners mot again
Aug. 15, 1888, at Kyers-Grovo for tho
purpose ot running out tho line adopt
cd at tho former meeting and tho lino
as reported by thorn was actually run
out on that day. No notice of thin
meeting was givon to any of tho In
habitants of tho Township and no di
oussion of said line by citizens of the
Townshlji took place either at this, or
in previous ineuiuig ui .iuiy iv, loao,
The soundness of tho oxctptious in
this case depends on two questions.
First, whether, in this proceeding
notico to tho inhabitants of tho Town
ship is necessary, and Secondly, if
necessary whether tho notico given of
tho first and sojond meetings of the
Commissioners, is sufficient, or wheth
er notice should also bo given of tho
3rd fc 4th meetings or both of thorn.
Tho Act of Assembly undor which
this proceeding is brought does not in
express tcruia require notico to bo giv
en, to tlit inhabitants j but that such
notice should be) J veil, is clearly im
plied from the languago used, and tho
purpose of tho Act, Tho division if

to bo mtde, "So as to suit the conven
ience of the Inhabitant thereof. If
their convenience is to be considered,
they mast b consulted and heard, and
this should not be done without notice
to them. If we could have any doubt
on this question it would bo removed
in this case, by the fact that the Order
of the Uourt to the uommisiiooera
expressly requires notice to be given.
The power of the Court to make this
order cannot be questioned by the re
tilioners. It is their own proceeding
and tho order was made at their in
stance and becomes a necessary part of
their proceedings. We therefore hold
that tho notice in this case was
essential and that without it the report
of the Commissioners could not be sus
We come then to consider the next
question, whether a notice to the in
habitants of the Uommlssioners Third
or Fourth meeting was required. It is
claimed that the purpose of the Third
meeting was to consider tho evidence
in the case, and adopt a report, there
fore no notice was necessary.
We would feel like sustaining this
view of tho case, if the Commissioners
had adopted any line which bad been
proposed at any of tho previous meet
ings. We might then conclude that they
based their decision upon evidence
they had heard at these former meet
ings. But, how can we so conolude,
when, tbey in I act adopt and determin
ed at this third meeting upon a line
about a mile or there abouts, still fur
ther West of the line suggested at tho
second meeting, and one, that was
never belore proposed, tso tar as me
record in this caso shows, tho inhabi
tants never knew that the line adopted
had ever been suggested until, after
the Commisdoners bad run it out and
made their repoit to the Court. The
Commissioners are not only to inquire
into t'uo propriety of tho division, but
if a division be determined upon, it
must be made to suit the convenience
of the inhabitants of the Township.
There may be little disputes on the
subject of division, but where the line
shall be, may be the very question
which most seriouslv affects the inter
ests of the inhabitants. Therefore, be
fore a lino is adopted, they should
have an opportunity of being hf ard
on the question of its adoption. What
was said by Kennedy J. in tho cae of
Maccungie Township, 3rd Kawle 476,
in reference to the division ot a iown
stiip, is applicable to the case before us.
He said inter alia. If then the inhabi
tants of the Township have the right,
aud must exercise it in the first place,
of deciding wbethtr their oonvenince
requires a division of tbeir iownsnip,
or not, as it rau.it be admitted I think
they have, it follows that they have a
right to decide where the line of divis
ion ehall be, if a division be made at
all, because whether their convenience
shall in any degree be promoted by a
division of the lowuship may depend
in their opinion entirely, or at least
mainly, where tho line of division
Hod notice been given of the third
meeting at which tho lino agreed up
on could have been discussed, it might
perhaps, have been unnecessary, to give
notice of the meeting at which the lino
thus agreed on was run out But, as
no notice, was given of either of these
meetings, tho report ot tho uommis
sioners must be Bet aside.
Exceptions have also been filed to
the bill of cost ahd expenses in this
case. We think th charges of the
Commissioners are reasonable. it
would seem from their report that they
had four meeting?, and we may fairly
presume that they may hav-j spent 6ome
additional timo in pn.pir.ng their re
port, and making the plot or draft at
tached. We also see no impropriety
in J. C Brown charging a part of his
time as Commissioner, and the other
portion of his time, when so employed,
as surveyor. Wo dismiss tho tirst and
gecond exceptions to the bill of costs
without further comment.
Tho third exception raises tho
question whether the County is liable
to pay for the services of the peti
tioners' counsel, and his necessary ex
penses. This item is claimed under
tho provisions of tho first section of
Act of 1875 l h. 20, which is as fol
lows. "In all cases of the division, or
creation of Election Districts, by the
Court of Quarter Sessions of any Coun
ty, in this Commonwealth, the said
Court shall order tho costs and ex
penses there of to be paid from tho
Treasury of tho proper County" &c.
Tho County is not a party to tho
proceeding?, bat as elections aro part
of the maobinery of tho Government
and the public at large is interested in
them, as well as the locality which com
poses a district, it seems to bo the poli
cy of the law that all expenses incur
red in holding and conducting the
elections, or in creating and forming
tho Districts, should bo paid out of the
County Treasury, which is a common
fund raised by taxation of (lie iuhibi
tants of all tho districts in tho Counly.
Tho Act governing this proceeding
does not provide for the pay mint of
any costs or expenses by the parties
litigant, ilio question bolore us is
not what is taxable as tho costs or ex
pensos of tho nuecotful party. The
Act fixes the liability of tbo County to
pay all coHts and expanses but docs
not delino what stia'l no considered as
li gal coats and expenses in such p-o-ceedings.
It appears to us, that it teas
intended by the Legislature, that it
tho aid cover all expenditure) neces
sarily incurred. It is plain that tho
word "Costs' alone, would include on
ly laxablo costs, and as Attorney's
teen in I'enna., are not taxable costs,
no such item could bo allowed, if no
other term were used in tho Act. But
tho Legislature saw fit to uso in addi
tion tho word, "Expenses". Now,
while icosta aro expenses and theso
terms are sometimes used as synony
mous, yet Biricuy sptnioug, "Ex.
pt'iiries." is a wider term than "Co3ts,"
and usually includes much more. It
embraces generally, nu r-xpendituro or
outlay, while coats, are only suoh ex
penses as aro expressly allowed by poii
live law and made taxable as such.
No attorney ice is fixed in a proceed
ing of this kmd, and therefore could
not bo taxed as costs. But if the
amount olaiuud is reasonable, and his
norvicos are nccoisary, wo hold that
then his compensation is part of tho
necessary expenses of tho petitioner,
and is included within tho leim ev
nouses used in tha Aot of 1875
The counsel fee in this case is, admitted
to bo reasonable, and as we think tho
services of an attorney mcessnry in
such a caso we allow this item us a
part of tho necessary cxnenseu of the
proceeding and dismiss the exceptions
