ATTORNEY GENERAL CROW'S
OPINION ON AMENDMENTS.
Jefftrson Cits-. Mo.. Dec. 21 Attorney
fltneial Crow to-day addressed a commu
nication fo floseru r Stephens relatis-e to
tho sesrn constitutional amendments rseil
at ire rtccnt tOecticn. in which he giscs his
tpinien on the following questions asked
Li ! senior Stephens:
I ir-t When d the amendments that are
sf If-t nforelng become operatis'e?
Sts:ond hat. If any. of those amend
ing nts. or parts thereof, are self-tuforciiig"-
Attornty Oeutral Crow's opinion follows:
"In reply to the question first asked, per
mit me to s-iy that if only the provisions
or the section of tho Constitution relating
to amendments thereof svas considered, it
might be held that If-enforclng amend
nitnts in Mi-MHirl v.ere optratlve frum the
day of the election on which they received
.1 111 tjorlty of the s-otes cast.
"Hut it mu-t be remembered that consti
tutions and amendments thereto are In
struments of a practical nature, to be con
:.tri.sd so as 10 tarry out the intention of
the trainers and adopters thereof.
"As a basis tor construction of amnd
intnu. it must be ns.sumed that an Intelli
gent purse prompted tho-e wno svere cm
1 ected with their making; and adoption,
nr.d that thev vvtre f.imil.nr with the. Ipvv
as it siooit prior thereto. It Ls a rule of
lav.' that it is permissible to consider the
consequences ot any proposed construction.
As 11 is rot to tn- supposed that unjust or
unreasonable reBitits arc to flow from a, con
sttmtioral aciprninirnl, it will not lie con
strued to actsimpiish such results, if its
term will permit .1 nioro beneficial readii.g.
and in construing the provision of the Con
stitution, with reference to amendments. It
Is rignt and proper to looi; at the whole In
strument, inclining the 'chedute. v.nlch pro
vlien the mini.tr for the submlssioa of Hie
o-iglnat document to the people and aseer
n mng the t zpression of thtir will tnere
on: and also, to look at o-tr existing system
of law and con-lrter all of th- above with a
slew to ascertaining. If possible, the true
li'tentlon of the framers of the Constitution
and the people in adopting it. and apply
the Intention, svhtn gathered, to the prat
tic::! oieration of our Inwp. so as to have
the amendments become operatise with th;
linn poslh!e Incons-enicnce and dis
till bailee of existing rights and conditions.

"Applying these principles of construction
to the amendments recently adopted. 1 am
of the opinion that the amendments, nml
Pirts of the sanous onet trat are self-er.-loitlui,',
betame operative when the votes
vvtre canvassed, cast up and the result
oltltlally ctrtltied by the Secretary of Stile
on L'tctmber IS. 1'.
"As to tho second qucstltm: What. If any.

"To illustrate. If the whole real estate was
