RADICALS WILL BE IN CONTROL Progressives Will Dominate Con vention to Reframe Ohio Constitution BITTER STRUGGLE PREDICTED Initiative and Refereodum to be Paramount Issue Has Made Even the Liquor Ques tion Secondary, Democrats Have Most Delegates. oluuihus, .. Jan. N. -The a-reiit state of Ohio will begin tomorrow the reconstruction of the constitution. A constitutional convention. recognized by all factions as preponderantly "pro gressive" If not radical, will convene in this city lojiiorrow for a struggle In which hotly-debated questions of the Initiative and referendum, the retail of public otliciuls in. hiding the Judiciary, and the liquor queetlon. will ovcr hliadow all other proposals. The fact that a majority -perhaps as largo an ?o per cen& -of the delegates chosen to this convention are classed as progressives.' while the more con servative element makes up In deter mination what It may lack in num bers, foreshadows a bitter and pro tracted struggle. Whatever 1(h out come, the people will have thereafter their "say" about It in the ensuing gen eral election. They redacted the pro posed constitution adopted in IX73-4. Ohio Is Haf first stute east of the Mississippi to attempt the revision of Its organic law since direct legislation and direct control of public officials by lha electorate came into vogue In sev eral far weatern states, and the out come In Ohio will ,e watched with keenest interest by the people of even other state. Analysis of the statements regarding the mental attitude of the delegates electotl. oTbcIohcv; the fact that all of the progressive arg for the Initiative and referendum and many of them went pro v lei one for the recall of the jtinTPTary. Ptactkalljj every lahor deia gate stands for the recall of all offi cers. Many or the farmer delegates, however, while favoring the Initiative and referendum refuse , include the recsll of Judges in their program, at the EHIiic time supp.nting this Idea lor other officials. Interviews with representative delegates throughout the state Justifies the statement that sentiment is more concerned with the proposed modifica tion pf representative government than with any other matter likely to come Palate, the convention. They prefer ajgntng 'he liquor license question in a secondary position. The Initiative and referendum, they assert, is para mount to all issues.

FISHER WOULD AID SETTLERS Would Remove Many Restrictions That Now Hamper Bona Fide Home Makers. ALASKAN LAWS TOO STRICT Development is Impeded by the Present Regulations. Declares Conservation is Not Oppor.ed to W'se Development of the Pub lic Domain. Waehlngton, Jan. x. Bnhn d apph- itlon of the leasmc principle as ap- plb-d to the public domain, especially liberal leasing law for the develop ment ol the mineral resourct of Alas ka, particularly Its coal lands, and im mediate consideration by congress of the whole subject of water-power de velopment and control, are the most Important i . . ommendat ions contained in the annual report of Secretary of the Interior Ffcshag niude public to day. A general overhauling of conditions In Alaska It. needed, the secretary says: Ho favors a law for the retirement of government employee, on the ground of good business policy. He urges the creation of a bureau ol national parks, each of them at present being "a separate and distinct unit for adminis trative purposes." There Is also aer ioua need, lo- declares, lor the en -largemenl ot the w.,rk of the bureau of mines. HThe great public movement for the conservation of ouv national resources, " says. Secretary Fisher, "is iyt in any way- opposed to prompt and wise de velopment of the public domain. The essential thing is to ace that under the guise of settlement, we do not permit more exploitation, which in the Inst analysis retards botli settlement and development " Me recommends, therefore, certain modifications of ex isting laws relating to the public do main so as to permit its proper devel opment. Would Aid the Settler. Many of the restrictive, provisions Which now Irritate and hamper the bona fide si ill. -r and Industrial pi Oil ear should be removed, be says. "The man on the ground should be the object of our aolicitudc. and should protect him again -t those who would place upon his shoulders any unnecessary burden." In regard to agricultural land set tlers. Secretary Fisher holds that the law should insist absolute, upon cul tivation hut "should permit the re laxation of the rule requiring n si.b ooe during I lie in s. two y ears, In some eases on account of conditions there being "no reason whatever for insist ing upon the repi ireinent of actual residence at the outset ." Some moditi' at ion of the law In re gard to repayment of reclamation charges is recommended and a change in the law is proppaad to permit the settler at any time after five years from the date of entry and after he has lived for three years upon his land, to acquire title to the property. "No land should le open to homc ataM entry," be declares, 'except that which is really suitable for homes; and then the homeinaker should be aided in every proper way. "The timber ami stone ait should be Immediately repealed, ami also the act authorizing the cutting of timber on mineral lands. They hold out a constant invitation to abuse and to mere exploitation. Enlarge Leasing System. "The public range can not be pioper ly administered under t lie existing law. It should be leased for gracing purposes under the broad administrative discre tion of the secretary of the Interior, so that the leases can be adeyted to ac tual conditions and the legitimate in terests of the sheep and cattle-nun At present the range itself is being destroyed aim both sheep and Mttal men are coming to the conviction that their own interests will he better sub served by i leasing law. "In fact, the enlarged application of the leasing principle to the public do main generally will, in my Judguu nt. mole effectively promote development and protect the public interest than the present system t'ertalnly coal, oil, gas, asphalt, ni'rato. and phos phate land .an be more appropriat.lv developed by leasehold Hum by the present ay stem of classification and sab- of the fee which prevails with re spect to coul." In respect to such basing in Alas ka. the secretary recommends the as sage of a libei ii bill carefully guard ed leasing law for the development of Its mineral resource and especially of Its coal lands. Alaska s greatest re sources an her minerals arid m ine development of these the pre bais m. tals still hold the predominant place. Careful corislderatnm of the provisions of an appropriate leasing law for the real lands of Alaska is being contln- ued through the director of the bureau of mines, with a view to suggesting such changes in or substitute for bills on this suhje. t which are now pending In congrese. as may be desirable." Urges U. 8. Railroad in Alaska. The proper administration and de- velopmenl of Alaska ari not be accom plished under existing laws, the secre tary (I. ar. s . vv her elor. le in g. a I ao the construction by Ihe government f a a ntral trunk-line railroad from I tidewater to the Tannna and, Yukon, the reservation of a sufficient amount of the cool lands to provide for the lu ture needs of the navy, this coal to In minis! by the government; more liberal appropriations for roads and trails; and the adoption of a form of terri torial government, a ( oinmissioti form being suggested, better adapted to Ita remote situation and peculiar local conditions. "The whole subject of water-power de elopmetit and control should in my Judgment, receive the immediate con sideration of congress." says the Sec retary, and constructive legislation should be adopted without further de lay. I believe the federal governine.M has adequate constitutional power to control water-power development both m navigable streams and upon the public domain and to exact compensa tion and to inmost- nroiwr condit iotm cither case. It Is apparent that the federal government can act more ef fectively than the states in many . asc. No correct or permanent solution of the water-power question can be reached until the interests of the state and of the nation have been reconciled. The fedaral government should not part with any of itH constitutional powers. I'heir exercise is certain in she future to necoiue essential to the nr.. !..! ion f the public interest." It la unsound both In prim Into and In practice, he says, that permits f(r the development of water-power are revocable at any time at the will of file administrative officials. He concurs In the recommendation of a specially appointed hoard Which suggested t lie appoinjment (fan Inter national Colorado River Commission to be composed of American and Mexican engineers, to work out the treatment f the problem. Other Recommendations. A modern and properly equipped ouiUIIng for the patent office, addition al mine safety ears lor the bureau of mines, the r. - siubli-hmi nt of the loard of pension appeals, and increased resources for feieral bureau of safes. atioti to carry on its work, are among the other re ominendalions in the. re port. The secretary calls attention anew to the 'laconasetodt manner In which the work of the government has been divided among the Interior. Agricul tural and Commerce and Labor De partments." The patent office, he savs. hould be under the 'Department yf Commerce and l-ibor. WILL NOT CALL A SPECIAL SESSION STATED IN WASHINGTON THAT GOV. OSBORN HAS MADE POS ITIVE STATEMENT TO THIS EFFECT. Washington .Ian If has been learned lore, on reliable information that Qovernor Osborn has made the positive announcement that there will be no special session of the state leg islature this spring or summer. This is all the 2 representatives in Congress have been waiting for.

Kach one of the 2 will begin at once active efforts to bring about his return to the sixty-third 'ongrcss, which commences March 4. 1913.
