FORTY-FOURTH YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1911, FIGHT FOR A NEW PLAN Stockwell's Attempt To Hav Boards of Review Named By Mayors Defeated. NEW BILL, HOWEVER, WILL BE INTRODUCED Governor's Central Board Bi! for Third Reading in Sen- Plan Gains A. __. _____ STAR-JOURNAL BUREAU, f" Dispatch Building. COLUMBUS, O., Feb. Though there have been some Warm debates In the senate during the present session the debate never got so hot as to call for words were declared out of order until last evening when the Dore bill extending the authority of the state tax commission over taxing officers and particularly the quadriennljrt assessors was being considered. Senator Stockwell of Cleveland of- fered an amendment taking the pow- er of appointing the members of citj boards of review from the state board of appraisers and assessors and plac- ing it in tha hands of the mayors o the cities. In support of his amend Bient he quoted not only the state .platform of the democrats but Gover- nor Harmon himself to the effect that he opposed such appointments of the boards of because it gainst the principle of home rule. The senator was evidently provoked be- cause the democrats did not line up for his amendment, Senator Dore making an impassioned appeal to the democrats not to amend the bill lest that delay the progress of the bill. Senator Johnson of Cincinnati at this point made a speech against the amendment. Stockwell said that he believed in making a good law when you had the power and Senator John- son reminded1 him that he had1 not taken this position when the other Bide took up and defeated the judi- cial election bill in the last legisla- tuie, "when they had the power." '7 can answer the senator on that shouted Stockwell a fraudulent claim ockwell "He but he [di made [did not get any further. Quick as a flash Sen- ator Johnson was on his feet with a question of personal privilege. He claimed that the senator from Cleve- land was making a personal attack upon him and using unparliamentary language. "But of course it was not intention- ally Stockwell hastened to state, but Senator Johnson raised the new point of order that the senator from Cleveland had already spoken twice on his amendment and had no furth- er right to the floor. Lieutenant Gov- ernor Pomerene sustained the point of order and directed that no personal- ities be indulged in. The amendment defeated and the bill passed. Sen- ator Cetone stated immediately that he would introduce a bill making the provisions of the Stockwell amend- ment and intioduce it at once. Sen- ator Johnson said he would vote for It if the state tax commission ap- proved it.
