Sec. 7. Each precinct in this State shall, at the time of election, elect two or more fence-viewers, whose term of office shall be the same as a justice of the peace, whose duty it shall be to examine and decide upon the legality of all fence in their respective precincts, when called upon, and see that the above law is faithfully executed.
