Mandamus Action by L L Mitchell Is Being Prepared Would Compel County Election Board to Obey Secretary of State IS FIRST TEST SUIT Nevada Board Had Voted 2 to 1 to List Bailey as Independent The Star learned Monday that a mandamus suit was in process of bc- ing filed in Nevada county to com|>cl the Nevada county election hoard to list Carl E. Bailey as a Democrat instead of an Independent in the gcn- ernl election to be held October 18. The Nevada board listed Bailey as an Independent candidate along svith Johh E.

The suit is the first test case in Arkansas. Several county election boards have listed both Bailey and Miller as Independents, Nevada county being one of the several counties to do so. It was understood the case was being brought in the name of L. L. Mitchell of Prcscott, and others. Whether the case would be heard in Nevada chancery or circuit court could not be learned Monday. In the event of failure in these court, the case will be taken to the circuit court of appeals in St. Louis, The Star was informed. The Nevada election commissioners are W. S. Martin, C. B. Andrews and J. K. Prescott. It was understood that Andrew and Prescott voted to list Bailey as an Independent. Martin, it was understood, contended that Bailey should be listed as a Democrat.
