90 lt?R~T? ACTION.
The discussion which has arisen over
Assemblyman lUtimati's resolution re?
scinding New York's ratification of the
income tax amendment to the federal
?Constitution leaves one point thoroughly
?established. No o'ie dispute** the right of
the present Legislature to take nnv no?
tion which it may think advisable for
? tbe purpose of recalling the approval
given by the last Legislature. Ample
precedent exist?- for such a reversal of
a state's attitude. New York ratined the
Fifteenth Amendment In lStJO and the
Legislature passed a resolution in 1870
withdruwlng the state's approval. New
Jersey and Ohio did the same thing
when the lourteenth Amendment was
under consideration.
It hi b?*?ide tbe real issue to ar**-ue
that those ?eversals counted for noth?
ing. Congress on July 21, 1808, paired
a reeolutmn directing Secretary Sevrard
to bsue a pr<x*Inniatlon ammu-cln-** the j
ratlflcatlon of tbe Fourteenth Amend- \
meut und to count New Jersey and Ohio j
among the ratifying sint?***- But the ?
Vote? of those two siBtai were not ue?*es
eary to the ameudinent's adopti?.'.:
Thirty of the thirty-six states bud vote.1
aye and only twenty seven affirmative'
vote? were nee?-*Hi.ary With Ohio and
New ?lenej omitted tliere was si ill a
safe margin. The .* filiation was similar
when New York souglit to change its vote
on the Fifteenth Amendment. Twenty
nine of the *liirty-seven states had voted
oye and tweuty-eight instituted a
three-four i hp majority.
Our neighbor **Tbe World" said the
other da,v . "I>t*n if they [tbe support
' ers of the Ilinman resolution] could
"carry their proposal, they know that It
"isvt-ry doubtful whether a state can

It appears that Mayor Qaynor wi
misinformed in suggesting thai Govern
Wilson ??f New Jersey never reeoi
mended a ?no 11 Mention of the ?-orporath
law that has made his state ihe favori
resort of octopoace. In his fii-t ?Betaai
Dr. Wilson ?lid advise "such changes
"the law of the state as will hencefoii
"effetrtually i???jv?-i.t. the abuse of tl
"privilege of Incorporation which has
"recent years brought so moch dlscred
"upon our state." Hut the Mayors I
norance of this utterance Is excnaaU
stein;* how really perfunctory it arg
?since Ihe Governor never recurred to tl
subject and never sought to induce tl
Leglalatnre to carry oat the recommei
dation. When he ?.as reall) Intereatt
in securing legislative action he did n>
content himself with a mere formal re
omtnendution, but refloated It on evei
occasion and "went t?' the people" f<
their support if necessary. The jxilieii
which he made his own thus deca?)
familiar, and it is not rarpriting Ih;
one which has nol been heard of siut
the lirst message was overlooked.
Governor Wilson's practical ahandoi
ment of this reform Is all the more n
marknble since it ?vas one oi the sul
Jeep- on which lie was accustomed t
dwell in his campaign specke*. Wh
did he not renew his recommendatio
in his second m.s??age. Why did h

The first votings of the Germai
Reichstag are significant oh showing tin
Ktrength of factional combinations. Th<
Social-Democrats put forward theii
leader, Mr Hebel, as a candidate for thi
Presidency of the Chamber, on tht
grmmd, which years ago ?vas always r?
spected. that the presiding officer should
be chosen from the most numcrous
party. In some recent years, however,
that principle has been ignored, as it was
yesterday. Tbe Conservative?, however,
could not elect a member of their party,
but had to support a Clerical, who was
elected by only 11)0 votes to Mr. Rebel's
175. A? there ure only HO ?Social-Demo?
crats in the House, It Is obi Ions that ?'??
Radicals snd National Liberals, or mem
bers of other minor parties, voted for a
Social-Democrat for Hresid.'ii, Tor the
place of First Vioe-IYeslihut the Con
s.Tvativi's did pat forward a man. but
be was beaten by a Social-Democrat, the
latter gering 1.S8 voles to the former's
174. In ~.hls case the S?X'ial-Dernocnit
candidate was supported by 78 Radicals.
Ubi'i'uls and others. The ??berall and
Ra?lieol?. together number only 8'"?. where
fore it scfin?- probable that most of them
voted for the Social-Democrat. Finally,
a National Liberal was elected Second
Vloe-Pn-sldeiit. presumably with the aid
of Social I ?gnoeral voten, given In re?
turn for the Liberal votes for Social
Democrat candidate* in the other ballot?
ing?.
Thus the Conservative party, the back?
bone of the government support, was
unable t?? elr-?*t even one of the three,
and i*o far as tbe organization of the
Reichstag- Is concerned is practically
grouped with tbe Poles .and ChMlpbi and
other minor parties. It is the minor
member of the "Rlue-RIack bio??." which
now deserves to be called "Rlaok-Rlue"
Moreover, that ?coalition, which dornt
nated the laet Reichstag with an ample
majority, is not only now In the minor?

what may happen later. If s?? many
