7. And be it enacted, That for the performance of the duties
required
of the commissioners aforesaid, by this act, the levy court
of the county aforesaid, shall make reasonable compensation, and
shall levy the same upon the said county, to be collected and paid
as other county charges are collected and paid; provided, that the
said commissioners shall not receive a sum exceeding two dollars
each, for each and every day they may be engaged in executing the
duties required of them by this act.
8. And be it enacted, That, after the confirmation of this act,
all
elections shall be opened in the several districts of the county
aforesaid, at 9, A. M. and closed at six, P. M. in order that the
business of the day may be fairly done and concluded, within due
and reasonable hours; and for as much as the design and intention
of this act, is further to promote the convenience of the people;
and the effect thereof will greatly abridge the services of the judges
and clerks, the compensation to be allowed for such services,
shall be two dollars per day to be levied and paid as other county
charges.
9. And be it enacted, That after the confirmation of this act,
the
levy court of Somerset county, shall, according to the provisions
of the act of 1805, chapter 97, appoint three persons in each of
the election districts, residents therein, who, or such of them as
shall attend, shall be the judge or judges of the election for the
district for which he or they shall have been appointed as aforesaid;
and the judges appointed shall have, hold and exercise the same
powers and authorities and be subject to the same penalties as the
judges of elections in Somerset county now exercise and enjoy,
and are subject to.
10. And be it enacted, That all laws now in force not
inconsistent
with the provisions of this act, are hereby declared to be, and
remain in full force and effect in Somerset county.
11. And be it enacted, That all the provisions of any former act
inconsistent with, or repugnant to this act, be, and the same are
hereby repealed.
12. And be it enacted, That if this act shall be confirmed by
the
next General Assembly, after the next election of Delegates, in
the first session after such new election as the constitution and
form of government directs; in such case this act, and the alteration
in the said constitution contained therein, shall be considered
as a part, and shall constitute and be valid, as a part of the said
constitution
and form of government to all intents and purposes, every
matter and thing in the said constitution and form of government
in any wise conflicting with, or contrary thereto, shall be, and the
same is hereby repealed, abrogated and annulled.
