belief a bona fide resident, a qualified voter within the District,
and a tax-payer therein." Petitions which are identical in all
respects, save as to the names subscribed thereto, shall be considered
as one petition: Such petitions may be filed at any time
up to a day not less than twenty (20) days prior to the day set
for the election to be held hereunder.
In canvassing the returns of the election hereunder, the vote
in the District as a whole (without regard to the boundaries of
any other political corporate creature of the State) shall be
totaled for and against the proposition submitted, and if the
voters approving the creation of the District exceed in number
the contrary votes, this District immediately shall be entitled to
exercise the powers by this Act conferred. The nine (9) persons
who in numerical order receive more votes than are received
by other persons proposed for directors (to the end that
