The constitutional Amend ments to be voted on by the people this fall will have a better Chance to be carried than former propositions of this character. It has heretofore been the Rule to count the votes on which the voter did not indicate his wish As to the amendments. This handicapped the amendments greatly for thousands of voters in the state took no interest in the matter and did not vote on it at All. Under the old Law All of these votes were counted As against the amendments. Under a Law passed by the last legislature it is Only necessary for the amendments to have a majority of the votes cast on the proposition in order to be adopted by the people. This will give the amendments a fair show and votes not recorded either for nor against them will not be counted against. Under the Longworth Law it will be the duty of the state convention of both the Republican and democratic parties to take action on these amendments such action to be certified with the ticket nominated to the Secretary of state. As All of the five amendments were passed by a Republican legislature and As the democratic state Central committee insists upon treating them in a partisan spirit the chances Are that the Republican convention will endorse every one of the pending amendments while the democrats will limit their approval to the amendments providing for the repeal of the double liability clause of the Constitution and providing for representation from every county in the House of representatives. The democrats seem to oppose the amendments providing for the classification of property for taxation purposes the classification of cities and the amendment giving the governor a limited veto Power. The importance of the five amendments so far As their effect on future legislation is concerned cannot be easily overeat mated. The first amendment relating to the classification of property for taxation purposes will open the door for the creation of an entirely new system of taxation in Ohio. At present the Constitution provides that All property shall be taxed by a uniform Rule. For instance a franchise of a Street railway com Pany cannot be taxed at present. All that can be taxed our cars rails the Power houses and other equipments and rolling Stok or in other words Only the visible property and not the value of the franchise or of the entire property As represented by the Market value of the stocks and Bonds of the company. This at a meeting of the Republican state Central committee held in the Neal House Columbus tuesday Columbus was selected As the place and j Une 3 and 4 As the time for the state convention. In the absence of chairman Clingerman h. J. Eckley presided at the meeting. Senator Hanna was chosen As temporary chairman and As such will sound the keynote of the Campaign. John r. Malloy of Columbus was made temporary Secretary. Or. Malloy will name his own assistants. It is understood that senator Foraker will be the permanent chairman of the convention but the selection of this officer of course will be left to the committee on permanent organization Loo be made by the convention. For sergeant at arms William f. Goss of Cincinnati was chosen. Members of the committee bad quite a time in getting together on a Date for the convention and yet there was an apparent de who attend the state convention might overtax the capacity of the hotels. The selection of the second week was interfered with by reason of miss Ruth Hannah a coming wedding to Joseph Medill Mccormick of Chicago on june to and since senator Hanna is ask ing no other favors at the hands of the party there was a Genera deposition to so arrange the convention Date to permit him to attend his daughters wedding. Lisbon a Centennial Celebration the third week in june interfered with the selection of that week. Columbiana is senator Hannah a native county and the people there could no More think of letting their show proceed without Hannah a presence than would the play of a a Hamlet be permitted to go on with Hamlet attending a political convention or addressing a labor meeting in some other Section of the country. However the committee finally agreed upon the Date Given above and every one was appear termination on the part of All to entry satisfied. Hold it some time during the month of june. The first week in june was objected to by the supreme court judges on the ground that a Law examination with 250 or 300 applicants would be held at that time. It was jointed out that the presence of so Many Law students in the City with the delegates and others the basis of representation in the state convention was fixed at one Delegate and one alternate for every 500 voters and fraction Over 250 votes cast for Hon. Lewis c. Lay i in for Secretary of state last fall. Defiance county will be entitled to five delegates in the convention. Amendment was offered by senator Wirt of Mahoning and passed both houses by a practically unanimous vote.
