388 ' LAWS OF MARYLAND.

BERWYN.

Chapter 67, House Bill 121, incorporates the town of
Berwyn, in Prince George's County.

The qualifications of voters in the referendum election
are such as to preclude a property owner resident in the
town for less than twelve months from protecting himself
against the impositions of taxes through his right of fran-
chise. There is estimated to be 180 qualified voters eligible
to vote on the referendum, and a petition has been filed
with me bearing the names of 103 such voters in protest
against the submission of the bill. A similar bill was sub-
mitted to referendum vote some years ago and defeated.
Under these circumstances, I do not feel that the cost of
holding this proposed election would be justified, nor am I
convinced as to the fairness of an election under the pro-
posed referendum, since no adequate provision is made for
notice to be given the voters prior to the holding of the elec-
tion. I have, therefore, vetoed the bill.

CUMBERLAND.

Chapter 98, Senate Bill 37, directs the Mayor and City
Council of Cumberland to accept from property owners on
Cecil Street one-half of the amount and interest due for
street and sidewalk improvements as payment in full.

The Attorney-General has ruled that this bill is in viola-
tion of Section 33 of Article 3 of the Constitution and I
have, therefore vetoed it.

DUPLICATE BILLS.

Chapter 20, House Bill 6, relating to public works, is a
duplicate of Chapter 84, Senate Bill 2, which has been
signed.

Chapter 21, House Bill 7, relating to dependent children,
is a duplicate of Chapter 148, Senate Bill 49, which has been
signed.

Chapter 47, House Bill 77, relating to claims for unsound
or damaged tobacco, is a duplicate of Chapter 138, Senate
Bill 136, which has been signed.

Chapter 73, House Bill 75, relating to tonger's license,
is a duplicate of Chapter 100, Senate Bill 40, which has
been signed.

For these reasons, I have vetoed each of the above bills.
