Trenton Times, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1890, Trenton, New Jersey VIII. NO. GOVERNOR HILL SPEAKS. His Message on 1 ardy World's Fair Legislation. CENSCRE FOR THE LEGISLATURE. Be Complloients the Originators of the Bill, RtgreU the Uflay, Adtlaea That Politics UL Titbooed UQd Promises to Sign the ML latire If Passed Ai Feb World's fair con ference comzmtUe co'aposed of members of the seuat0 and auuounced yester- day that they hod been unable to agree upon a report aud -had adj imued until Monday uftcrucou at 5 o'clock. It siucerelj hoped and expected that the committee mil have agreed by that time nud i epoi t to the legis lature on the same evening Governot Hill Speaks. The following message on World's legislation has been sent to the legislature by Governor Hill "The nit-asine known as the lei's fair agreed upon by the cituan's committee of New York city, was pieauuted to both houses of the legislature two weeks ago It was a measure which had been carefully prepared by able lawyois and one which Boomed to meet public approbation The names of the commissioners proposed m the bill, while nominally selected b) the mayor, hud been virtually agrood upon by the pub- lic spu itcd aud al citizens of New York who inaugurated the patriotic ement for a Woi Id's fair "Their sel ction met with universal ap- proval They were chosen not on account of their political aflUiations, but bv reason of their high character aud business stand- ing in the community The Committee Complimented. "There was no suggestion at the time that political considerations had in the least influenced the composition of the original committee, noi hns there been any such in- timation until within the past ten days Its members have been working togt ther har- moniously and satisfactorily during the past flve months, with credit to themselves and honor to the city of New York Through their exertions over have been voluntarily subscnbe-J for and-it Is clear that the public expoctud and desired a continuance of.this comnutto in chaige of the good woik It is entuely immaterial the political sentiments of a majority of the committee nny be "It is Bufflcieut to know that the members were fairly chosen aud were prictically se- lected by the citizens of Now York them selves, and any change by the legislature would naturally be regarded as a reflection upon the original committee audits proceed- ings Further Delays Dangerous. "It is greath to be regretted that the bill in its original shape w is not promptly passed by the legislature Every day is important? and it is feared, wilh reason, that the delay which has already occurred may prevent favorable action at Washington, The friends of New York at the national capital are anxiously awaiting the action of this legis latnre Further delays are daugeroua It is perhaps needless to recite the unfortunate controversies which have occupied the atten- tion nf legislature during the past two IT, thAoir.rf t" the committee History of the Legislation. "The bill first passed the assembly with but one dissenting vote, aud without any attempt to change the commissioners named therein or to add others. A public hearing was had upon the bill in the senate, but at such hearing no one ventured to suggest that any addition to the commissioners was desired by anybody It was not until the special senate committee reported the bill, with the addition of twenty-two new com- missioners, that the public was aware that an addition was m contemplation It is submitted that no good reasons have been urged whj 'his addition should be made. What the Public Wish Thi re no popiilfu: lug a change Not a single newspaper hud suggested it No prominent citizen had pub- licly advocated it No complaint whatever hnd been made of the non-partisan actions of the comtmttco The additional commig whose names have boon proposed wore not asking to be named, and some of them had taken no interest in the fair and had not contributed a dollar to its success. It is extreme y unfortunate that such a question should have arisen to disturb the harmony of New York's efforts to secure the fair and to endanger their Lay Politic! Aside. "I appeal to the legislature to lay aside political considerations and to pass the bill us it presented "I am ready promptly to approve the bill pi-ovldnd 4! bi present stantially as it was agrood upon by the mayor and citizens' committee It must be conceded that the attempt to ingraft upon it the names of addit onaLcsmnussiouers imptrils the final success of the measure. A Strong Bill, Be Says. "The impoitance of the measure, the urgent necessity for its speedy enactment into a Ian, the great benefits likely to be conferred upon the state and country by the securing of a World's fair in New York city all demand that merely partisan or personal considerations should be waived in an honest effort to pass the bill that is satisfactory to tho contributors who, by their generosity, have made possible the realisation of thin laudable undertaking "The highest compliment which can be made to the committee's bill is the fact that after two weeks' discussion in the legislature no amendments, aside from that providing for new commuwioners, have boon suggested except a few trifling change) of phraseology and detail t Enact It at Oaeet "Careful reflection has Indicated the wis- dom of the bill in ontirety, mldiliuiial argument for its acceptance sub- stantially as It was presented to the legisla ture The citizens of New York city are not asking the state for a dollar of money, bat they simply desire legal authority nnder which a World's fair can piopei ly held at they own expense, nnd they the privilege of naming their own comtnisslon- to expend their money. Ifea respectfully fubmitted that they fjiould be given that privilege The best men of all parties are defending daily that the bill in original shape shall be enacted at once, and I appeal to the legislature to heed the almost unani- mous sentiment and thereby render a pa- triotioMrvlce to every section of the state and to tints citizens."
