OF THE GOVERNOR OF OHIO,

Fellow CU tens of the General Assembly: '
Upon your assemblinsr to enter azaln

fare oi tne people ot Uhlo, the governor it
r quired by the Constitution to comiuqni

to recomuend sucn measures as he shall

leads of the State institutions, are required
by law to be made to the Governor on or

not elapsed for the publication ot the re
ports, ana i snail therelore not oe able at

tairs of the various - departments of the
State government, it will be my purpos-
in this communication to invite your at-
ention to a lew oriel suggestions In rela
tion to some, measures which are deemed
important, and which may be considered
mil acted upon, if you think it advisable.

-, In pursuance of an act ps?ed March 18,
1867, a board of commissioners, eonsistine
of Aaron; Fj Perryof Hamilton comity,
Charles E. Glidden, of Mahoning county,
and James H. Godmau," Auditor of State,
was appointed by my predecessor. Gov
ernor Cox, whose duty it was "to revise
all the laws of this State relating to the as
sogeraent-and taxation. of property, the col.
lection, safe-keeping and disbursement of
tne revenues, and alljhe laws constituting
the financial system of the State," and to
report their proceedings to the next
session of v the General Assembly
ine report 01 tne commission was
laid before you at your last session. It
disclosed many imperfections, and incon
sistencies in the existing legislation touch
ing the finances, and the urgent necessity
tor an elaborate -revision of, that legislation-'
,Tieir reoort was accompanied bv
eight separate bills, consolidating the pres
ent laws, removing contradictions, and
supplying detects, but introducing no rad
ical change in the general principles of our
financial system. These bills have already
been somewhat considered in ooth branches
of the General Assembly ; but no definite
action upon tnem as yet been had. I
respectfully recommend an eariy;considera-
tion ot tne bills and their adoption, with
such amendments as in your Judgment the
public Interests nfay require." - - -
The destruction of the Central Lunatic
Asylum by fire darisg the night of the
lSth instant, causing the death by suffoca
tion of. six of the patients, and incalcula
ble tlistress.ahd suffering to ttiil remainder,
will require Investigation and prompt ac
tion on your part In rebuilding the Asy
lum, the erection of, a fire-proof building
will occur to you, as alike the suggestion,
of prudence and humanity. I '
inis calamity also suggests the DroDrietv.
of examining the conditiou of. the other
institutions ot tbe State., wnb- a view to
providing them with every proper' means
of: security against a similar, disaster.
,The interests of common school education,-in
my opinion,' wilt tie promoted by
the early adoption of connty superinten
dency, as provided in- a bill on that sub
ject, now pending in one branch of the
Ule4ejaiAssembly. I therefore earnestly
recommend tne, consideration, and passage
of the bill.
The Cooa nates ioner of Common Schools '
is , required, in the discharge of his duties-to
pay out each year, for travelingex-
penses. aoouc f 700. The propriety of re
funding to him, out of the State treasury,
his traveling expenses, will probably not
be feanedIft"question. " ;
jjuring tbe last summer a cattle disease.
Lcommonly known a the Spaaiai-or TexaB
cattle tever,-occasioned; much alarm in the
grazing counties oi tne state, ana in a lew
localities caused serious -loss. - On the rec
ommendation of the State Board of -Agriculture,
in the absenee-of effective, legisla
tion, it was deemed proper to appoint com
missioners to take such measures as the
la w-ftulborized to prevent the spread of the
disease. A proclamation was issued to
prevent, as far as practicable, the intro
duction, movement, or transportation of
diseased cattle--within the limits ot the
State. The railroad companies and the
owners of stock promptly -compiled with
tne requirements referred to, and the in-,
jury sustained by 'the cattle Interest -was
happily not extensive; It is believed that,
upon investigation, it will be found neces
sary lo' confer' by law upon a board
of - commissioners, -appointed - lor that
purpose,' or upon the executive com
mittee of the State Board , of - Ag
riculture, power to "stamp out' the dis
esse wherever it appears, by destroying
all Infected cattle, and tq prohibit or regu
late the transportation or movement oi
stock within the State during the preval
ence of the disease. To the end that prop
er investigation, may ba. bad, I respect
fully recommend that authority be given
to appoint nve uommise loners to attend a
meeting of Commissioners of other-- States,
to be held for the consideratlooof this sub
ject, at Springfield, Illinois, on the first of
Decern Der next said Commissioners to re
port tbe results of their investigation in
time for action by the present General As
sembly. . I submit to your consideration the im
portance of providing for a thorough and
comprehensive geological survey of the
State. Many years ago a partial survey
was prosecuted under many difficulties and
embarrassments, which was Iruittul of val
uable results. It is, beyond doubt, that
such a work as it is now practicable to cart-
ry out, will, by making known the mining,
manufttpturino and avrionlt.iirnl rAariiif-i.be
manufacturing and agricultural resources
of tbe State, lead to their development to an
extent wnicn win, witnin a rew years, am
ply reimburse the State for its cost.
The annual report of pardons granted
and the commutations of the sentences ot
eonvicts reauired by law: a statement in
detail of the expenditure of the Governor's
Contingent Fund ; the semi-annual report
ot tbe Commissioners oi tne sinicmg fund,
for May ; copies of proclamations issued
during the last year; and an acknowledg
ment of tha -presentation- to the State of
several of the portraits oi lormer ifover-
nors of Uhlo, are transmitted nerewitn
, The most important subject of legisla
tion which, in my judgment, requires the
attention of tbe General Assembly at its
present sewlotr,Teistertothe prevention of
frauds upon? tne elective irancnise. intel
ligent men of all parties are persuaded that
at tne recent important state ana .national
election great-abuses of Ihe right of suf
irage were praciiueu. x ui uUk jiopaiei

would, aoar-aa- the elections in Ohio are
concerned, be fully sustained by a thorough
investigation of the facts- But . it i not
doub ed that 'even at the elections in bur
own State Irauds were perpetrated to such
an extent that all good citizens earnestly
desire that-ettectlve measures may be
adopted by you to prevent their repetition
No elabqrate attempt td portray the con
serineflces of this-evil" fs required.' If It it
allowed to increase, the confidence of the
people in the purity of election will be
lost, and the exercise of the right of suf
frage will be neglected. --To corrupt the
ballot box is to destroy our free institu
tions. ' Let. all good citizens, therefore,
unite in enacting and enforcing laws which
will secure honest elections.
I submit to your judgment the propriety
of such amendments to the election laws as
will provide, first, for the representation ol
minorities In the boards of the judges and
clerks of the election?; and second, for the
registration of all the lawful voters in each
township, ward and election precinct, prior
to the election.
That the boards of elections ousht to be
so constituted that minorities as well as
majorities will have a fair representation
in tnem, is so plainly just that in som ,
ptrts of the State, even in times of ttv
highest political excitement, such repre
sentation has been obtained, in the absenc
of law, by arrangement between the com
mittee of the rival political parties. It la not
probable that any mode of selecting judge,
and clerks ot elections can be adopter
which will. In every case, accomplish thi
iu)ecc cut in ail cases wnere tnestrengtn
of the minority is half, or nearly halt as
great as that ot the msj.irity, the desired
representation of the minority may be en
sured with sufficient certainty by several
different plans. For example, it may be
provided that at the election of the three
judges who are to decide all questions at
die polls, each elector may be allowed to
vote for two candidates only, and that the
three candidates having the highest num
ber of votes shall be declared elected, and
in like manner that at the election or the
two clerks ot elections each elector may
vote tor one candidate only, and that the
two -candidates receiving the highest num
ber of votes shall be declared elected. -
I do not lay much stress on the particu
lar plan- here suggested, but your atten
tion is invited to the Importance of a fair
representation of the minority in all boards
of elections, not doubting that your wis
dom will bo able to devise a suitable meas
ure to accomplish it.
All parts ot the State of Ohio are nov
so closely connected with each other, an
with other States, by lines of railway, tha-'
great and constantly increasing facilities
are afforded for the perpetration of. th
class of frauds, on tbe elective franchise.
commonly known as "colonizing." In thi
cities, men called "repeaters," it is said.an
paid wages according to the number oi
unlawful votes they succeed in casting. ai
tbe same election.. The increase of popu
lation adds to the - difficulty ot detecting
and preventing fraudulent voting, In what
ever mode It may be practiced. It Is man
ifestly impossible, amid the hurry and ex
citement of an election, that the legal right
to vote, of every..person who may offer bis
ballot, should be fully and fairly
investigated and decided. The ex
perience of many , of the older States
has - proved that : 'this r can best- be
done at some period"" prior to the election,
so as to give to every legal voter, In an
election preelnct, an opportunity to chal
lenge the claim of any person whose right
is deemed questionable. Laws to accom
plish this have been in force in several
other States for many years, and have been
carried out successfully and with the gen
eral approval of the people. Believing
that an act providlng for the registration
of all legal' voters is the most effective
remedy yet devised for the prevention ot
Irauds on the sacred right of suffrage, and
that a registry Jaw can be so. framed that it
will deprive no citizen, either native born
or naturalized,, of his just rivhts, I res
pectfully recommend to your earnest con
sideration the propriety of enacting such a

granted to said clergymen the privilege
