HILL'S VETO OF THE SEX
Oov. Hill's veto of the Sexton hill, a syn
opsis of which wo publish clsowhere, will
not iiisiiiro tho friends of electoral reform
with any very high respect for his Judg
ment, which ho plainly sets up os superior
to that of a majority of both lloiwes,
since, ns an alternative, ho recom
mends his own put mcasuro, known
ns tho Linson bill. Tho Hexton bill
had been prepared with Rreut enro and
wits as near ns tho Coimtitiulon and cus
toms of New York would permit a draft
of tho now historic Australian meas
ure It was, therefore beyond tho critical
reach of Gov. Hill or any other olli
cial. In South Australia, in Knlainl, ia
Canada and in 1niiHvillo, where laws of
tho samo import aro in force, they liavo
mot tlio public expectancy and approval.
