LAWS OF MARYLAND.

 

CHAPTER 76.

 

AN ACT to locate the county seat of Garrett,

 

county.

 

WHEREAS, An act was passed by the General As-

Preamble

sembly of Maryland, at the January session, eighteen
hundred and seventy-two, providing for the erection

 

of a new county out of a portion of Allegany county,

 

and

Preamble

WHEREAS, At an election held under the provi-

 

sions of said act of the Assembly, the qualified voters

 

in that portion of Allegany county, now embraced

 

within the lines of Garrett county, did designate their

 

choice for the county seat as required by the second

 

section of said act, and

 

WHEREAS, The town of Oakland received more

Preamble

votes for the county seat than any of the points voted

 

for, and

 

WHEREAS, If this General Assembly should pass

 

an act authorizing the holding of another election for

Preamble

the purpose of locating the county seat it is not likely
that any one of the points which were voted for would

 

receive a majority of the whole vote; therefore, in

 

order to prevent unnecessary taxation and to stimu-

 

late the prosperity and material growth of the new

 

county.

   

County seat
