Treatise of Proposed Amendments to the State Constitu.
tion From a Purely Non-Partisan View Point.
The admission of a territory into
the Union as a state is a ve'ry ser
ious step la the affairs of tho nation.
It clothes the new state with pow
ers before denied to it, and gives
It an everlasting placo among the
sisterhood ot states that can never
be taken away again wltnout its own
consent. It give's it a representative
In tho Senato as great as that en
Joyed by tho older nnd more popu
lar states, and admits its represen
tative to debate on tho Hoor ot tho
House, where beforo ho could only
Many of the powers, necessary for
tho government ot tho people, wero
denied the general government when
tho Constitution was adopted, and
reserved for tho various states. These
manifold powers wero not granted
to tbo territories.
Tho method of admitting new
states lies wholly with Congress and
tho President, and It varies usually
to meet tho conditions that prevail
In tho particular territory applying
for admission.
Iu tho case of Utah, as naa beon
tho method adopted in many instan
ces, Congress passed a measure
known as tho Enabling Act, which
In a general way prescribed on what
conditions it would bo admitted into
tho Union. In conformity with this
act, a constitutional convention was
called lu Utah, and a state constitu
tion adopted. This framework for fu
ture statutes of now stato being sat
isfactory, tho powers and dignity or
a full-Hedged state wero conferred up
on Utah and tho forty-fifth star plac
ed on tho American flag in recogni
tion of the ovent.
As in tho case ot all constitutions
tlmo revealed now conditions that
proved tho Constitution lnadoquato to
.comprehend and meet the arising
needs of the growing commonwealth,
and amendments were found neces
sary. Beforo an amendment It effective
it must bo authorized by a tw o-third
vote of both houses ot the sa?o leg-
islature and receive the signature of
tho Governor.
Amendments to constitutions aro
serious matters and should never bo
made except In case ot aosoluto ne
cessity, as they cannot bo repealed
If found useless or vicious, as Is tho
case of an ordinary statute. Amend
ments, however, are often very es
sential, and thero seems to be great
need for this step to be taken in
Utah at tho present time.
Accordingly, tho last legislature
passed Joint resolutions providing tor
eight amendments to constitution
of Utah. Drletly .stated, they aro
as follows:
1. Providing for a payment of
eight dollars per day, and ten cents
per mllo of distance necessarily trav
eled In going to and from tho placo
of meeting, for each member of tho
Heretofore four dollars per day
havo been paid.
2. This amendment has to do with
tho power of cities and counties
to creato Indebtedness.
Tho constitution provides that
counties may creato Indebtedness
amounting to two per cent ot tho
aluo of taxablo property, vilties,
towns and school districts four per
cent for general purposes and lu
caso of 'cities and towns an addi
tional 4 per cent for waterworks,
sowers, or artificial lighting plants,
making a posslblo debt or bond of
eight per cent for cities nnd towns,
and four por cent for scnool dis
tricts, Tho amendment proposod
provides that cities having over 20,
000 inhabitants may create a debt
of four por cent additional making
eight per cent all told, nnd cities
of less than 20,000 Inhabitants, and
towns, eight per cent additional,
making a possibility ot u bond of
twelve per cent, provided tho ad
ditional olght per cent is created
for water works, artificial lighting
or Lowerngo owned and controlled
by tho city or town.
3 This amendment empowers the
legislature to form now counties
nnd locato county seats, provided
that a majority of tho electors In
each part ot the county that Is to
bo divided, oto for such division,
such voting to 00 done lu separate
elections. Tho logic ot this amend
ment lies In tho fact that our coun
ties aro so largo as to bo unwieldy
nnd aB population Increasos it will
bo necessary to reduce them In size
geographically. 4 Is to correct the loos0 and un
satisfactory manner of handling the
public moneys. As It now is tho
treasurer gives n heavy bond and
may lawfully deposit tho monoys
of tho stnto where ho pleases, or
bury It If ho sees lit, and is no:
accountable to the state for any
It Is proposed to compel the trea
surer to deposit all public moneys
lu his caro under tho supervision
of tho board of examiners, which
consists of. tho governor, sccrotnry
of stato and nttornoy general.
C. This amendmont has to do
with tho duty ot tho stato In pro
vidlng ways and means of paying
state debts and Interest thereon. It
relelveb tho stato from levying a
tax for such Indebtedness whoro
thoro Is any other sourco of rev
enue, as mny como from an Inher
itance tax, and al" ws that monoy
bo provided to pay all debts beforo
they fall due, Instead of In twenty
years from their creation nB Is now
provided In tho constitution.
G. As tho Constitution now stands
tho stato board of equalization shall
Continued on Pago 4.
Tho winter courses annually offer
ed by tho Stnto Agricultural Collegi'
aro scheduled to open upon tho fifth
of November, They will continuo
during winter months, ending March
1G. Courses in agriculture, homo
economics, mechanic arts, and com
merce will bo given, the work to bo
completely separate from tho regu
lar school work. Tho classes through
out will Do organized for the winter
courso students.
Tho Ideal of "service to tho peo
ple" has como more nnd more to bo
tho prlmo moving thought of tho Ag
rlcultural College of Utah. Tho slo
gan "Tho whole State Is the Carapm '
Is now true In very fact. Of tho va
rious methods employed to tako the
school to the people or to bring tho
peoplo to tho school, possibly none
havo been more successful than tho
winter courses. They mako various
appeals to tho Industrial classes. To
tho farmer they offer an opportunity
of securing necessary, thcorotlcal
work, without any real interference
with tho routine ot tho farm. Degln
nlng, as they do, after tho fall work
Is completed, and ending boforo
spring work has begun, it Is a very
easy matter for the boys on tho farm
to attond them. Not only Is It pos
sible for tho farmor to secure tho ne
cessary olomentary training, but by
systematic wfcrk a collego degreo can
bo obtained by ntteudanco nt theso
winter courses. Each Heason's courso
Is arranged to parallel with tho work
of 0110 term of tho regular school cur
rlculum and by complotlug nn eight
year's course tho degreo of bachelor
of sclcnco may bo attained.
Whllo theso courses, from tho tlmo
of tho year for which they aro sche
duled, mako a special appeal to tho
farmer, still their field Is by no
means so limited. Thoy mako tholr
appeal to many who, though ambi
tious to obtain a collego education,
And It a financial Impossibility to at
tend school nlno months out of tho
year. To theso it Is a comparatively
easy matter to completo tho short
winter courco.
Tho short courso in home econom
ics should provo immensely success
ful. To tho woman who must tako
herself through school tho financial
problem Is much moro serious than
to tho man. She finds It hnrdor to
securo tho nccosbary funds during tho
short summer months than does tho
man to whom more and hotter paying
posltlono aro open. Under this new
arrangement many girls, otherwise
derived tho luxury of n collego edu
cation will be able to attend school.
All things come to hlr.i who walta
even on tho telephono.

At Smlthfleld Governor Spry mado H
a hit In requesting nil who had been H
