Oovernor Hill Asks That the CoMtltn. tkxtallty ot Saxton Bill he Passed Vpoa It. ALBANY, N- Y., March Bill sent a comunication to the Legis- lature yesterday in which he says the Saxton ballot reform bill is now before him for consideration. Tne objects which it professes to accomplish are un- questionably commendable. Many of its features are excellent and several have been recommended by the Gover- nor in annual messages during the past two years. "But certain of its provisions are be- lieved by tbe Governor to be in viola- tion of the constitution of this State. The advisability of an early adjudica- tion of the validity of this proposed measure, especially while the Legisla- ture is in the Governor says, "is very apparent. The best interests of the State would be subserved and the cause of electoral reform greatly pro- moted and its success hastened if the constitutionality of these provisions could be informally determined by the Court of Appeals at this time, for the information and guidance of both the Legislature and the Executive. "It is believed that the Court of Ap- peals, upon the joint request of the Legislature and the executive, would readily undertake to examine the pro- posed measure and iuformally express an opinion as to the constitutionality of its provisions. "It is therefore recommended that a joint resolution be passed by the Legis- lature requesting the Court of Appeals to convene at their earliest possible convenience for the nurpose of examin- ing this measure and expressing their opinions, informally, as to the constitu- tionality of the provisions thereof."
