COL. ABEL DAVIS IDEAS
ON NEW CONSTITUTION
Col. Abol Davis, delegate to tlio con
stitutional convention, linn mudo pub
lic his views on the work ahead. Ho
"Tho constitutional convention Is
not a lcglslatlvo hod. This state
ment will hear repetition. Tho appli
cation ot tho principle involved will
havo to bo borno In1 mind In all of tho
deliberations and actions ot tho con
vention. If tho convention adheres
to this prlnciplo it will produco a
basic law which will stand tho test
ot many years and meet with tho mini
mum ot objection at tho hands ot tho
peoplo on the question ot ratification.
"Lack ot elasticity and an exces
sive number of limitations in tho con
stitution of 1870 brought about tho
demand for a chnngo in that docu
ment. The new document In creat
ing tho machinery of our thrco de
partments, executive, legislative and
judicial, should havo confidence In tho
Integrity and good Judgment ot tho
peoplo and their future representa
tives in tho three departments ot our
state, county, and municipal govern
.monts and roduco tho number ot limi
tations to a minimum.
"Concretely, lot mo clto two Illus
trations: "Serious consideration should bo
given to tho proposal that tho Judicial
section ot our now constitution ho
framed along tho linos of our fcdorul
constitution, which would mean thnt
tho legislature would havo tho power
to creato such courts with such Juris
diction as, in its Judgment, may bo
required from tlmo to time. Tho
criticism of our Judicial system is duo
entirely to tho fact that tho many
limitations In our present constitu
tion havo mado it impossiblo for tho
legislature to mako such necessary al
terations as changed conditions re
quired. "In the mnttor of taxation tho legis
lature's power to pass tho necessary
taxing lnws should bo subject only
to tho limitations that thoy shall bo
uniform ns to all classos ot porsons
and property similarly situated, and
that exemptions should only bo by
general law, ropealnblo at tho pleas
uro of tho goneral assembly."

Tho Kansas court of Industrial rela

to be submitted to the special session
of the legislature, Is rounded upon tho
Idea of giving the labor unions n direct

privilege by giving tho unions anil the

can only be appealed to when efforts

STORM CENTER OF GERMAN FINANCE
Popular County Assessor.
Muthlas Krzbergcr, vlco president
nnd minister of finance of the German
republic, Is apparently tho storm cen
ter of the Germnn flnnnclnl problem.
Ho Is npparently Germany's strongest
public figure, with tho posslblo excep
tion of Gustavo Nosko. Anyway, ho
Is probably tho most discussed man
if not tho most execrated In Ger
Thoro is n widespread belief
nmong financiers, bnnkers and flnnn
clnl writers In Germany, that If two
ot Erzbcrgcr's plans arc put Into ef
fect Germany will facb actual ruin.
Tho most Important of these two
measures Is tho emergency levy on
property which thoy assert will reduco
Industrial fortunes of 10,000,000 mnrks
to less than :i,000,000 In a decade.
Tho second measure Is tho Income
tax, which will "beggar every modest
fortuno as well as every great for
Krzbergcr, as well as his enemies, looks to America for financial help.
Ho says: "Wo will innko our Investments attractlvo In every way for
Americans. I will guarnnteo that the only tax on tho capital of nonresidents
will bo an Income tax not to exceed UQ per cent."

ADMIRAL W. S. SIMS: BORN TO TROUBLE
Rear Admiral William S. Sims,, U.
S. N., appears to bo horn to trouble
ns tho sparks fly upwnrd. You see, ho
has the sailor's habit of speaking his
mind. A year or so before Hie war ho
was given an official reprimand for
publicly stating that American and
British battleships would bu found
hldo by side In tho hour of danger.
Just tho Mime, this Mimo sallormon
not long afterward was In command of
tho American fleet that went to tho
aid of Knglund nnd did home admlr
On his return to this country Ad
miral Sims wrote a series of articles
on tho American navy abroad. Ho
fell foul of tho Sinn Felners in Ire
land and raised another rumpus.
And now Admiral Sims declines
to accept the distinguished scrvlco
medal awarded him, and practically
accuses Secretary of the Navy Dan
iels of gross favoritism In making tho
awards. It appears that Secretary
Daniels did not pay much attention to tho list of 10 nnvnl officers recom
mended for the distinguished scrvlco medal by Admiral Sims.
There may bo a congressional Investigation going Into tho wholo matter.
