Dlttey of the Taxation Board Posi
tive Court Decision Hss Ruined the.
Act What the Governor Said.
Columbus, O,. Jan. 30. There Is ,,
Variance of opinion on the question
whether the Smith 1 per cent tax laW
stands shorn of the purpose for which
It was intended, as the result of th
ruling of the supreme court.
Governor Cox and many others re
gard the court's decision as a death
blow to the Smith law. The govornor
transmitted a message to the .isscnw.
bly In whkh he urged speed? action,

State tax. commission.
Judge R M. Ditty of the" state tax
commission declared that the su
preme court's ruling completely de
stroyed the Intent of the Smith law
and threw down the bars for any rate
of taxation on the present large dupllr
.catea. . ' -
Opposed to the views of Governorr
Cox is Attorney General Hogaa, who
declared that the supreme court's
ruling does not Impair or emasculate
tbe Smith law as to a single one pt
Its Intents. "The fact ot the ease ls
that the decision saves the law," as
oerts the attorney general. In Mr..
ilosan's opfnlon the Smith law staadai
In more danger from attempts by that
legislature to amend or strengthen itsi
provisions than from any decision by
the supreme court.
The attorney general says: "To sus
tain the constitutionality of the Smith
law Itself required the recognition ot
the right on behalf of any taxing dis
trict to take care of lta lawfully cre
ated 'obligations. Were the court to.
limit the taxing districts to the 1&..
mills, the Smith act would undoubt
edly be unconstitutional. In my Judg
ment, the Smith 1 per cent law Is not
only not In danger In the decision of
the supreme court In the Roose cae, n
but when the decision Is looked st ,
rightly the constitutionality of tbe
act and the beneficial effects of the
act, as well as the purposes ot the.t
act, are fully sustained,"
In accordance with the governor's
message, an amendment Is being pre
pared which will have for Its intent .
the j.laclng ot a maximum levy of U
mills for all purposes, including Inter
est and sinking fund. , ,

In his message to tbo legislature
the governor said:
"Pursuant to the duty Imposed upon
