"Article 096. Expenses for election suj
"AUl expenses incurred is providing voting.
booths, stationery, offiioal ballots, wooden
or rubber stamps, tally sheets, polling liats,
instruction cards, ballot boxes, envelopes,
sealing vx and all other supplies required
for conducting a general or. spooelal election

cost of supplying booths for cities. All ao-
counts for supplies furnished or services rena

?e agree with yofl conclusion as to your second
