Tk World's Fair Aaaeadiaeata.
Chairman Akins of the republican
state central committee and Chair
man Seibert- of the democratic state
central committee have issued joint
notices to voters and :o precinct com
mitteemen on constitutional amend
ments Nos. 4 and 5, relating to the
Louisiana Purchase Centennial of
1903. The notice -.alls attention to
the fact that the fourth amendment
authorizes St. Louis to issue $5,000,000
in city bonds in aid of the fair, and
that this can not possibly affect state
taxes. It also directs attention to the
fact that Amendment No. 5 author
izes the legislature to appropriate
from the sinking fund a sum not ex
ceeding one million dollars for a state
exhibit. Attention is directed to the
fact that this appropriation comes
out of surplus, and not out of cur
rent revenue, and will not increase
taxation. The appeal concludes with
the statement that the World's Fair
will attract millions of dollars of cap
ital to Missouri and benefit all classes
alike. Also that it can not be held
unless these amendments carry.
