A contingency worthy of .attention'a
[has arisen by reason of tlh enact
c meant of chapter 51 of the session

the assessed vthluation q£ the vari

is three or fonir times as great as

c ation of taxable iroperty.iii the .va
ts riotis counties will be made the basis
of the new clhssification of Ctoauitles

t- It seems to be but p.roper that

ir time, in order that equitable and fair
Is conditions may still prevail in coun-,

Since the adjournment of your th
regular session, the congress of .the co
United 'States.. has submitted to the ar
legislatuire of the Aeveral slates for o
ratification the proposed amend- n
ment to the federal constitution ex
tending the t'ight of suffrage to ci
For a great many years the pro
ponents of equal suffrage have p
urged that the' federal constitution gt
be amended to. the eild that women' t
might be 'giveli' an eiqtal fraichise pa
with men. Now the congress has
acted and it oinly remains for .the it
states to ratify 'to insure the accom
plishment of the reform. Montana t1
already has woman suffrage; hter d;
women vote upon . every important ji
issue .presented to our people. There si
are states, however, where the suf
frage has not been extended to the
women. Whilb the ratification of
the amendment will bring. the en- n
joymen't of no additional preproga- it
tive to the wminen of Motitarta, nov- nr
ertheless our women feel that the b
women of the other states should fi
have their aid and support in this
important matter. C
The qbestion of ratification of the b
amendment is therefore presented to I.
you in the belief that the memlbei's t
of this assembly will readily appro- ti
clate the justice and equity of the I
l Police Lasw for Cities. c
The mayor of the city of utnite p
has directed mIt attenltion to the fact v
that the law having to do with "De- l
partment of Police" has been so con- t
strued as to woit ani injuistice upon s
cities. He states that the..city of
Butte has paid out more than. $100,
00oi in salatres' to discharged and
suspended pol'icemen, for' which no
service was rendered. -He consid
ers the matter of urgent import
ance and asks that I submit the 1

ought to be amendment to the gen

break of faith, claiminig that Mrs.
Ingalls had promised to il trod ace :
the resolution for suffrage ratificea- J
tion jointly with her and that Mrs.
Ingalls had been influenced by re- O
publican leaders whom the speaker
characterized as "small, petty and 'r

wished to ithake capital for the re- h
publican partyS out of a measure that I
had bheen supjotted liy women irre
