To tho General AMomblrt Tho recent elections uUl much to rilapcl tho distrust thnt hns obtained throughout tho coun try during tho last two years ns to tho policy to bo pursued by our National Government In rc- f:imlto thq protection or American labor nnd ndustrie. it can now bo stated with great conlldenco that no political party will bo al lowed, hottbtvt much it mny ucslro to do so, to breakdown that who and patriotic policy to which wo nro so much Indebted for tho unex ampled prosperity u o ha.o enjoyed during tho last quarter or n century, Tho nnsuranco thin, nflorded Is nlready beneficially maniftstlng Itself throughout all our business Interests, With a com pie to restoration or confidence in this regard, thero will bo n full return of that commercial and industrial nctlvlty which will bring tho rich blessings of just ronnrds and happy contentment to nil clashes of our people. Tills is just cnuso of congratulation for all. Hut you nro to bo further congratulated. I3x pcrlcncohas shown tho wisdom and cRlclcncy of your labors nt tlio last session. When jou convened, tho most difficult and tho most Important duty presented related to tho elect. o franchise. Tlio question of "a free ballot and n fair count" was before sou in nn immediate, and a practical way. Men had been returned, a. elected, to both branches of your body, who had no shadow of claim to tho heats they held, except by tirttio of open, notorious and conceded frauds at tho polls nnd in tho returns. And not only had the cry foundations of freo popular government been thus assailed, but what w ns far w orso and more alarming w ns tho manifestation of a wide spread nnd wicked determination to defend these Iniquities, and, If possible, for tho mere Knko of partisan advantage, appropriate their fruits ami benefit. Your ilru duty was to give offect to tho Rill of tho people as it had been ex pressed nt the ballot box by purging jour i)Ody ot thoso so wrongfully returned us members: and jour second highest duty was to enact such provisions ns would guard in tho greatest degree poss bio njratnst a repetition of such crimes. You discharged both duties well. The mem bers elected by tlio people wero duly seated, and a repetition of Ilia humlllntlnt? oinrricnco , inruugu Him-iijou wcru compcueu io pass was guarded against by tho enactment of better elec tion laws applicable to the cities where thoso troubles arose, and whero similar ones were likely to oomr in tho future. Tho Pugstey law, which you llrst enacted and made nppltcnblu to tho cities of Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus and Toledo, cave treat sntisfnetlon. but it was II 1 ... .!, . .. .. .. I .' " hot sumclently complete, to fully guard nzainst nil danger, and tho Registration act, applicable to Cincinnati nnd Cleveland, followed. This statute cannot bo too highly commended. It nas giv en umvers.il and uuqualitlcd satisfaction to nil well-meaning clticns or both political Panics. It lint onnnlPil thn nnnnln nf ninrlnnnti to have n quiet, deceot and honest election. It Is not known how to express for It a higher or juiurc bixiuuuuiu cmogy, wiiii Mien results io commend It. argument is unnecessary to show that it should bo at once extended to nil the larger cities of tho Stale, especially to Colum bus and Toledo. The slightly increased expense, trouble nnd inconvenience of registration nro amply com pensatedin many vvnjs. It Is enough that It secures orderly elections, with honest results and without any investigations or election con tests, with their attendant expenses and irri tations, to follow nnd prolong the excitements incident to a political canvass. While ou aro considering the subject of elections, thero is another matter to which jou should gho atten tion. There has recently been much discussion In the newspapers or tho Stale concerning tho udv lability of abolishing April or spring elec tions. It isdlmcult, in Iew of tho experience wo have had, tonsslgn any satisfactory reason for Imingtuo elections minually. It will save ox pense, time, labor and excitement to ha.o nil our elections for each 3 ear on tho samo day. The constitution has been so amended ns to admit of a provision to that effect, nnd it is ac cordingly rciommcnded that jou enact it. It is further recommended that ou glvcdue consideration to tho suggestion that has been mado thutlt wo hao nil our election' on the samo dny, that day should bo mndo a legal holi day. We cannot attach too much Importance to the elective franchise. When nil these safeguards have been adopted, there Is ono other matter of great importance that should receive con bide rat ton. At jour lust session n practical demonstration was afforded of tho fact that tho Stato government might be obstructed nnd practically ov crthrow n by u sufficient number of tho members of either branch of j our body abandoning their seats and duties and going and remaining bej ond the ter ritorial limits of the State. It had never oc curred to tho legMatho mind to anticipate any such action. As a consequence, when n, num ber of tho Senators saw lit to take such a step during tho last session, it was discovered that there were no legal means whereby they might be brought back, or otherwise proceeded against. You should enjet a law providing that any State official vlio abandons his post of duty nnd goes bejond tho Statu to avoid being compelled to perform It, shall bo deemed guilty ot an of fence of sufficient gravity to maUo him subject to extradition upon tho requisition of tho Gov ernor. The people of Cincinnati ore greatly indebted to jou also for tho law enacted at jour last ses sion, providing for the organization nnd gov em ment. in that tltj', of the police forco by u Hoard of Commissioners and the Maj or. Tho board appointed under that law, have, in connection with tho Mujor of that cllv labored with great earnestness, constancy and success to dischnrgo their important duties. As u result, tho potlco force of that city Is to day equal in rtiscipllno and efficiency to tho police forco of any city in tho country. Hoth this polVo lav and tho election laws that ha.o been mentioned, are non partisan in character, there being on each board an equal number of members from each or tlio two polit ical parties. This Is ns it should bo. Whatever may bo said of non partisan boards nnd legisla tion concerning other subjects, tho elections and constabulary should be alvv iiys equally controlled by both parties, no matter which may bo in power. It is of the utmost importance that we not only hav o honest elections, but that all par tics have conlldenco In their fairness, to tho end that there may bo ready and cheerful acquies cence in tho results. This can bo best obtained by equal participation and co-operation in all that pertains to tho cxcrclso of tho right of suf frage. Inocry large city tho police uro an Im portant featuro of all elections. They aro u great power for evil if so disposed, nnd equally u great power for good if they desire to be. They nro most likely to do their duty faithfully and impartially on such occasions whon or ganized and controlled on a non partisan basis, particularly when they net In uid and as a part of a non partisan election. In addition, their duty of preserving the pcaeo and protecting tho rights of person und property makes it improper to Involve them in politics, not in tho same degree, but in the same sense, that it would be to similarly Involve the judic iary. It Is hoped, therefore, that no changes v, ill bo mudo in any of these statutes, except such as experience muy show aro necessary to mako them more efficient. It has been currently reported in tho news papers und other Iso that an effort w ill bo mado to secure nt j our hands somo important legisla tion touching municipal government generally nnd affecting the city or Cincinnati particularly. This will bring beforo jou for consideration a very important subject. In all that may bo done a due regard should bo observ cd for tho idea that, so far us mar be pos sible, every city should govern itself. Tho mu nicipal corporation Is tho creature of tho Stato, and, so far us legal right is concerned, tho Stato may govern it in anv way it may chooso. Hut local self go crnment is tho ery genius of American institutions, and no community should bo deprived of It except In extraordinary emer gencies, such as existed at Cincinnati, to do inund and Justify the legislation with respect to tho Iwards of that city that was had ut tho lust session. As soon, therefore, ns It may bo found safe to do so, complcto control of their government, in cluding the selection of all their officials, should bo restored to tho pcoplo of that city. In this way tho responsibility for local government is placed, not only where It properly belongs, but also where thero is tho highest interest to mnko It efficient. Indetermlniugthokfndofmunlclpal government we uro to huve, It should be borne in mind that expcrlenco hus shown that wo fchould habeas few elective, officials ot a minor character as possible, and likewise as few ex ecutive or departmental boards as possible, and that all we do have, instead of being indepen dent of each other and responsible to nobody, should bo hubordinato heads, responsible und accountable ns such to one common final author ity, whit J 1 should appoint all tho boards and other officials it Is thought best to select in that way, and have tho power of approval as to ull appointments mado by itsuppolutccs, and aha have in all cases tho right of removal. This concentrates u great deal ot power, but It is necessary to ilr responsibility, und is not only well calculated to muko tho people careful in their selection, but also giv cs to them the ability to call tho right men to account, und thus more certainly and directly control and determine their affairs. In this connection your attention Is called to the fact that tho provisions of sec tion IMG of tho JtcvUed Statutes pro ldes that cities of tho second class, when advanced to 'cities of tho first class, sball'constlluto tho fourth grado of that class, and that tho provisions of Section IViWof tho He v iscd Statutes, w hieh prov ido w hat officials cities of the llrst class shall have, do not upply to cities of the fourth grado of thut class. The lonsequcnco isthat u city of tho second class, rdv anted to tho fourth grado or tho first class, could not hav o any of tho benotlts provided in thut respect for tho clttos ot that class. It has been said thut this Is one reason why no city of tho second class has been advunced to tho first Cl'ISH, It is recommended that you amend said sec tion ITOtf so as to mako its provisions applicable to tho fourth grade of that class. Important recommendations aro mado In the reports of tho Chief Inspector of Workshops and ractorlei, the Intnectorof Mines and tho Commissioner ot tho liureauof labor Statis tic, with respect to tho laws governing their overal departments. It Is deemed unnecessary to review them hero in detail. You wilt havo tho reports before jou, und it is recommended thut you adopt and en act into law such suggestions contained In thorn us muy bo calculated to in n legitimate wuy umelloiato and udvunco tho condition ot tho laboring classes of tho State, Ills with great gratllleutloa that you are re minded that while they have had riots and bloodthed in other Htutes, we hav e been spared all serious labor trouble. ThtsK duo to tho good sense and tho patri otic desire of our people to servo and uphold tho law und mutually respect tho rights of others. Kuch acceptable und praiseworthy conduct, under sutli elrcu instances us havo obtained, re quires ut your bands a patient hearing und con si C era to treatment Qf every complaint thut tua) bo mado, to tho.ond that our legislation on this important subject mny keep abreast with tho progress of civ luxation and tho wants ot en lightened society. Tho benerolentlnstitutlons are tn a very satis factory condition. It hns been found necessary to mako but row changes or management during tho year, Tho several reports of tho trustees nnd arlons officials of theso institutions aro submitted herewith. Thoy nro so complcto as tomnkott unnecessary to do more than refer jou to them for any Information that may bo desired. Your attention Is called particularly, however, to tho report of tho Hoard ot Stato Charities, including n report mado to that board by Hon. John W. Andrews nnd Hon. H, Ilrlnkerhoff, act ing ns a eommtttco nnpolntcd by that board to Investigate nnd report as to "how to relieve tho institutions from the pressure of party politics." These gentlemen havo been long identified with chnritnblo nud benevolent work. They havo had much expcrlenco and great opportunity for observation. They nro probably a well quali fied to speak on this subject as nny gcnllcmon who enn bo found In our State, Their discussion Is therefore entitled to tho most rcpectful consideration. You will find thnt they have cloirly set forth their lews and supported them with eoccnt arguments. what they say as to tho propriety ot keeping tho management of tho benevolent Institutions out or politics is fully endorsed. They hnv e no relation w hatov er to any of tho principles, questions or policies that constttuto political differences. Party divisions aro never mndo with reference in thorn. Thiir mlrnlnt. tration Is expected to bo of tho samo general character nt all times. Thoy nro, thereforo, liijnuiiuut uuinR pm out 01 pontic, n on ac' count ot their character, they should bo, Tho llrst nunstlon Is then, whether tho.lr man, ngement shnll bo political or non political. Hero thero Is no half way ground. They must und ever w 111 bo either In or out. It Is for you to say which u nnu 00. uuring late year mere nas been n comnromistni nollcv mirsiinil. Thn time tlco has been to havo boards ot an odd number of members generally live and to havo a mi nority representation of tho party not In power in iwu memucrs. incso nro caiicu mix en boards, nnd there are many who seem to think good results hav 0 been secured in this way. Tliis is largcty a mlstnko. Tho rood results nnvu uccn uue mora 10 mo mgn cnarncicr 01 mo men Who hav o lipid thrin nnOHnno nf truxt. So far as tho "mixed" feature of tho politics of thoboird Is concerned. It is almost. If not quite, an unmixed evil. It Is good politics but umi iiuuuu nurwcu, in nimosi every instance of mismanagement or mishap of any kind in tho conductor any ot the public Institutions when managed by boards of this character tho minor ity trustees havo excused and defended them selves on tho ir round that thev and their nnrtv were not In power nud thereforo not rcspon siiHo;nnii mo majority trustees nave laKcn reftitro behind the minority and nut forth tho defense that tho other party was equally nt fault because their representatives hadpartlcl- .uuu in 1 no w rong, ucn were mo answers civ en when tho recent unfortunnte management or tho penitentiary was called ti account. So ImpresMve an experience should not "bo soon rot gotten. A careful study of this matter has resulted in these conclusions : 1, The benevolent Institutions ought to bo In- ncpcnucnioi pouucai enanges in mate gov orn metit. 8. They havo no relation to political Issues or iiiiicrcncos, anu muj-, lucre j ore, wiiu propriety be made so. .1. Minority representation In mixed boards do not accomplish this purpose Tho majority will manifest their power nnd always cxcrclso it for the benefit of their part, nnd when bad results nro obtained they will hldo behind tho minority, w ho w 111 plead w ant or responsibility. 4. Tho best system Is non partisan control. In which neltherparty will havo a majority, but both will havo equal representation and equal rcsponsibllltj. 6. This control should not be by Independent boards, but by ono board of four or six mem bers to govern nil tho institutions of tho State. C. Tho Governor should appoint all tho super intendents or theso Institutions, subject to approval by this board; nnd tho superintendent or each institution should, subject to the samo approval, appoint all tho subordinate officers. The appointing power should also havo tho power or removal, subject to tho approval of the Hoard. 7. Tho Governor should bo cx-offlclo a mem ber, with power to givo adecidtngolo In all cases of equal dlv lslon. This plan would llx responsibility. It would secure an equal representation or both parties. No Governor or superintendent could, ir ho de sired, unduly favor his own party In tho ap pointments to bo made, slnco all must bo con tinued by a majority oto, and henco neces sarily bytlHMotoor his political opponents ns well as by the votes of his friends. It would se cure more aid from the trustees than Is now af forded to tho superintendents in tho manage ment. Under tho present system wo havo able, well qualified and highly honorable men In tho vari ous boards. Hut their duties rarely call them to their respective Institutions oftener than once n month. Their lsiu are generally hurried. They have but little time to study the wants of tho institution while thero. Their time, when uwttj. Is devoted to their own affairs. Tho con scquenco Is that they necessarily leavo tho management aery largely to the superinten dent. Fortunately, our superintendents are all men ot high character and Jltncssfor tho posi tions they hold, and consequently, ns matters now stand, no harm is likely to result from this practice. Hut it would bo safer and better, if you mako a change, to guard against any danger on this account. The plan recommended would do this. Tho concentration ot the management of all tho institutions under ono board would neces sitate the constant attention or tho members to their duties. Tho discharge or these duties would practically become their chier occu pation. They would bo constantly In com munication with, und In attendance upon, those institution. They would shortly become entirely familiar with all their details, and by constant study and attention becomo wise counsellors und efficient assistants to tho local officials. Tho objection may bo made that tho members of such n board would have to bo paid a salary. That docs not necessarily follow, Jtut if that be requisite, tho objection is not a serious ono. Hcasonablo salaries would bo scarcely moro expensive, ir nt all, than tho present system under which the Stato pays the expenses or all tho many ;nembers or the many hoard. Hut without regard to how that may be, the Stato can well a (lord to pay whatever may bo neces sary to Bccurotho most efficient sen Ices that can bo commanded. Wo have Bpsnt many mill ions of dollars to erect our Institutions, und ex Bend annually nearly t,',(MJi),000 to maintain them, uch important interests should bo manage d,and cared for by the most capable talent, und ac cording to the most upprov ed business methods. It is recommended, therefore, that it j ou should conclude to adopt tho nonpartisan sj stem of gov crnlng our bencv olent Institutions, you place tho gov crnment of all under ono common bourd, such us has been indicated. You might with propriety confer these powers upon the Hoard of Stute Charities, Tho mem ber or this Hoard represent both parties equally, and are men of high character, already familiar with tho work to w hieh they would thus bo called. If jou see fit to make a change from tho present system, and do not adopt the recommendation made, then thero should bo a non partisan board of cither four or six members for each institu tion, w 1th the superintendent empow ered to vote In all cases of equal division, slnco it would be impossible for the Governor to discharge such a duty In connection with so many.boards. It w HI bo noticed that what has been said ro utes only to tho benevolent Institutions. The recommendations of tho Hoard of Stato Chari ties include, tho penal institutions also. The principle ot non partisan management for the benevolent Institution is approved for the reason, among others, thut not being Identified wlthpolltlcaussucsorquostions, It is both prac ticable and proper. In so tar us the same reason obtains, n like ap- rrov al might bo giv en for the penal Institutions, tut the reason falls when wo como to tho ques tion of the management of tho Ohio penitentiary. This Institution is directly und importantly Involved in politics. Tho parties have distinct differences us to tho way in which it should bo conducted. It continually presents to tho peo ple of tho Stato in every canvass a question us to the policies to be pursued, not only In utiliz ing Its labor, but In other particulars. And tho ono party or tho other succeeds or fails in at , least some degree with rcfcrcnco to that ques tion. Tho party In power Is responsible, therefore, not only for an honest and canablo management, but for a management according to Its particu lar a lows. Hclng thus responsible, It should hav 0 the control. It it succeeds, It should have tho credit, and all tho credit. If it falls, it should hav 0 the blame, uud all or It. In other words, it is true or tho Ohio Penitentiary as of ov orythlng elso that botong In politics. When tho one party or tho other is put into power It is to bo assumed that an administration 1 wanted by that party, and according to its fiollcy and principles, and thut party ought to idio tho support that comes from thorough political affiliation und sympathy. When tho management becomes unsatisfactory the people can mako a change. So long, therefore, as tho Ohio penitentiary remains in politics in tho sense thai tho parlies hav e defined differences a to its management, to long it will bo Impossible, unwlso and unjust to tho party in power to glvo to It n non partisan government. Tho truo policy with respect to this whole matter is to put out ot politics and keep out ull that does not constltuto tho subject of political differences, and to keep in politics distinctly and emphatically all that does. That which tho people do not disagree about, let them manage in common, but us to that about which they dispute, let that party have tho manage ment upon which the responsibility lias been Imposed. In this connection, and with reference to this responsibility, jour attention Is culled to the reports or tho Hoard of Managers und other officials of tho Ohio Penitentiary. You will learn therefrom, that notwlthstand Ing tho fact that moro men are working on tho piece price plan than over before, jet the lnstl tutlon is again Bolf-sustulnlng. This Is due to an efficient management that keeps all tho men employed and makes faithful accounts of all their earnings. You will Und by visiting thero that discipline, cleanliness und general good order prevail. You will Und, aUu, that while no maudlin senti ment is allowed to stand In the way of treating tho lnmutes as convicted criminals under sen tenco to confinement and hard labor, jet every man is treated with all tho consideration and kindness that can bo prompted by a constant recognition of tho fact thut they aro human beings, to bo reformed If possible, as well ai punUhcd, beloro they aro restored to society. To this end they aro well fed, well clothod, not overtasked, and never cruelly punished. The managers and tho warden, in their re ports, discuss the question of bow convict labor should bo utilized. Their discussion Is basod on their experience and the practical results of the different systems. On this account what they Wo to sny is entitled to mora than casual con .(deration. Nevertheless, there aro somo ad antuges of tho piece-price plan which they iuvo nut mentioned, among them tho right each .irisoncr has of doing over-work for ids own boueilt, If nut allowed to squander bis earn ings, but permitted to havo them passed to his credit, to bo paid him when discharged, they will bo a great help to him at thut time, us welt as u boureo of encouragement to good conduct while in confinement. While, therefore, not so prolltable u modo of employment, yet It Is one that should be continued, at least until It has had a full and fair trial, on tho principle that there Is moro than mere dollars oud cent involved In tu utilization of convict labor, Tv tho end, however, thai the managers may bo en abled to keep nil the convicts constantly em ployed, they should bo given tho privilege they ask for, of working tho men on both tho piece price nnd tho contract system, accordingly, ns the nature ot the work to bodono and tho exi gencies that arise may requtro. Whethor thoy aro workodon tho ono plan or tho other cannot mako nny appreciable differ enco to outside labor with which they coma Into competition. Slnco no matter by which plan nn articlo is produced It necessarily lessens, to the samo extent, the demand for Its production olsewhcre. Tho only way to diminish this competition and prevent tho injury occasioned by it Is to limit tho number of men to bo employed nt any ono Industry, by employing them at hand work and on tho public buildings nnd tho public high ways. Kverythlng elso that has been suggested seems theoretical rather thn practical. Tho following tabulated statement shows tho population, current expense, and tho cost ptr capita In tho several public Institutions for the year ending November 15, 1HM, together with n comparison between tho per capita cost for tho years I8S5 nnd IRW. Tho figures given spoak moro forcibly than any words thnt can bo used of tho economy that hnsprovnltcdln tho financial management.

The financial condition or tho Stute still needs attention. In n, special message sent you last April, it was pointed out that to pay the unex pended balances of tho unusually largo appro priations of your immediate predecessors and to reimburse tho drafts mado by tho last adminis tration upon the revenues of this year to pay the expenses of last jcar, amounting In tho ng- Eregate to tho enormous sum ot foro (XX), it had ccn made necessary to borrow the eatlro amount of $730,0x) allowed by tho constitution to meet casual deficiencies. In view of tho fact that tho expenses of our Slate Government must necessarily continue to increase, and tho further tact that our tax dupli cate was not correspondingly increasing, it was also recommended that jou enact n law to tax the liquor traffic, and give to the General Rev enue Fund ot tho State twenty tlve per cent, of tho Income arising therefrom. You enacted the law taxing tho liquor traffic but deemed It your duty to glvo tho full benefits thereof to the relief of local taxation, and bo cause of tho absence from'tho State of certain of tho Senators and the consequent distrust by cap italists of tho bonds of tho St vte, Issued under such circumstances, jou authorized tho borrow Ingot but JSW.OiM, that being In jour judgment sutllcient, ns it has proven, to meet the public demands until our certificates of indebtedness could be put upon the market without any kind of discredit. Tho consequenco Is that It has becomo neces sary to anticipate tho revenues ot next year to provide funds to meet the obligations of this, though to u much smaller extent than was done last j car. Tho State Auditor's report w HI udv iso you that the total receipts from all sources for the General Itev enuo Fund for the next j car will umount to nbout .ftW,UJ, Tho probabilities ore that on tho fifteenth day of next February wo will have anticipated this to tho amount of about Mix) 000, und that ut that time there will remain to bo pild unexpended hal-inccs of tho appropriations ot this year about SWO.ixx). In other wonts, the net revenues uvallable for next j car will not exceed 5 VWO,(. To tho ex tent jour appropriations exceed this sum it will bo necessary to agvln anticipate next December tho revenues or the following year, less unex pended balances. Should jour appropriations umount to about fcl.O'W.OOO, tho sum appropriated for tliis j car, and the unexpended balances bo tJOO.OA). tho amount they aro estimated to bo at tho end of this j ear, the amount jou would hao to nntlelpato would be $."i00,OX). It Is difficult to see how jou ein appropriate less than jou did last jear. Wo cannot ufford to bo loo economical in making prov lslon for tho support of tho public institutions of tho Stato. They must bo cared for with sutllcient liberality to enable them to efficiently serv e their high pur pose. They hav e not heretofore had nil tho help they should have been given. Hut this burden will necessarily bo considerably increased this year by tho appropriations necessary for tho construction of tho Intermediate Penitentiary, the Soldiers' and Sailors' Homo at Sandusky, and the furnishing and maintenance of tho To ledo Insane Asylum. The only considerable item of expense that can be saved is that for tho transportation of prisoners. It would be moro just to roquiro each county to pay Us own expense for this purpose. Each county would then pay exactly its own share, and the result would be moro vigilance ut least in scrutinizing accounts, uui mis mono vvoum not mako enough difference in results to meet tho caso. Unless some provision is made, therefore, to incrcao tho revenues tho deficiency wilt bo larger at the end of the year than should bo an ticipated from tho taxes of next year. In fact, to uso it common but expresslv a expression, w e should "catch up," and thus avoid altogether tho crippling system of robbing tho futuro to pay for the present. Without increasing our sources ot revenue (of which something will be said hereafter) thero are only three wajs thought or In which this may be done. One is to increase tho rate or taxation ; another is to borrow, and tho third is to glvo the Statu a portion of the liquor traffic tax. The first method should not bo adopted ex cent as a last neccssltv: the second could onlv partially give relief sime no more than $iVj,oiw could bo borrowed un such account (the consti tutional provision ror casual uenciency ueing ffto.uoo, and I3J0,0(X) having boon already bor rowed.) It would seem best, therefore, to sivo relief by apportioning tho liquor traffic tax. It Is only cquitaoie mai ino oiaic, wnion provides mo law, should hav e a part of the help arising there from, at least temporarily, until tho situation Is reliuved, especially In view of the fact that tho necessities of tho State aro nlmost w holly occa sioned by the obligations it hus ussumed Iu tho erection und mafnlenanco of charitable and penal institutions. It is necessary to give attention to other mat ters pertaining to the subject. Tho dccllno in tho azcrecato of tho tax dupli cate pointed out in tho special mossago to w hieh reference has boon mado has been arrested, and wo havo the gratifying fact presented of an Increase for this ycur ov er last j ear of more than eighteen millions of dollars. The difficul ties, however, In tho way of a fair listing and assessment of property aro moro apparent than ever. It was pointed out in tho special message that there was a total lack of uniformity in tho valuation ot property, and that a number of tho National uuiiks 01 inu iiurwiem iiurd ui ilia oiaio uuu brouirht suits In tho United Stntcs courts to en join tho collection of taxes on their shares at valuations greater man sixiy per cent. 01 moir truevuluoln money, alleirfmr that sixty per cent. was a full average of the general aluation of property; audit was recommended that to avert a serious consequenco that would ensuo If mcy succceuoa, una 10 secure uquauiy 01 luxa tion and justice to alt, a revaluation bo had. subject to equalization by a State board, so that all valuatloiu of all kinds of nroncrtv mlsht be equalUed over tho whole State,' Bin co m.iv rocominenuntion wns mauo, mo court has rendered a decision In the Cuyahoga County bank cases, In which tho court llnds tho fact to be that tho real estate of that county was talued for taxation at tho last decennial up piuWcincut at only sixty per cent, of its truo value In money, and that conforming to this uctlon us to reultj. personal property is as sessed nnd returned in thatcounty nt tho samo figure, and holds that in consequenco in that county the shares of National banks cm not bo assessed ut a higher vatu it Ion, an I accordingly enjoins tho collection ot tuxes on n aluatlon in oxcoss thereof. The consequenco is that tho btato Hoard of Hquallzatlon for bank shares must cither ubdlcutu Its powers entirely, or by doing its duty as required by law. seem to court constant lltlgUlon; or disregarding tho plain requirement of tho statute, it must make a spo clal rate for Cuyahoga County, which is unjust to ull tho other counties, or It must level down tho valuation of tho bank thurc in the other ctzhty Beven counties to tho Cuyahoga County standard, which would bo unjust to ull other kinds of properly. Tho board has felt it to bo its duty to observ 0 the plain requirements of the statute. They have accordingly refused to be governed by tho standard ut valuation whleh has been adopted In this one count j, and havo refused to grant any of tho many applications that havo been nudo to thorn by the banks of other counties to h i 0 their valuation scaled down to conform 10 tho decision of tho court, Jt Is an injustice to tho h'liiks of ono county to mako them nay tuxes on a higher valuation tnun the banks or uuothcr county p ty ou. It Is not to bo cxpectod that such a wrong will bo ac quiesced In. Unless, therefore, something bo done tho banks of the other counties through out the State will no doubt succeed In securing tho samo favorablo valuations that have been secured by the banks of Cuyahoga County. And what Is secured for tho banks can not ana must not be denied to any other class of property. Tho consequenco is that we aro Uublo to serious embarrassment so long as tho present conditions continue. In this samo decision tho court holds that tho owner of shares In n National bank has a right, In listing tho sumo for taxation, to deduct from their valuation ull his nubilities, and for this reason, vl.. tho shares of National banks uro taxable in tno Stutos only to the extent allowed by section ft.'IO, Itev Iscd Htututes of tho United blutcs, und this section provides that thoyshull notbituxod ut a higher rutu than moneyed capital In tho hands of private- Individuals. Tho Coustl tutlon ot Ohio provides that every specie j of propsrty, Including "credits," shall bo taxed it Us truo aluo in money, but section itfU of the KoWsod Statutes of Ohio defines the term "crodlts' to mean only tho exeossof credits over liabilities, and this statutory dednllton Is applied In listing crodlts for taxation. Tho court holds that tho credits from which tho citizens of Ohio nro thus allowed to deduct their debts nro moncjed capital In tho hands of prl vato individuals within tho moantng ot section fi?lQ ot the llovlsed Statutes of tho United States, and that it would bo taxing bank shares nt n higher rnto to not allow a similar deduction from their valuation. Tho cnpltal and surplus ot tho National banks of tho State amount to nbout J l3,rvw,ooo. Thoy nro taxed upon this nt about Mt,(xx,(XK), A con siderable part of this Ml,noo,rxk)wlllno doubt disappear from tho duplicate after this roar If tho banks Insist upon tho advantage tno de cision gives them 1 and as Indicating that they will do so, It may bo stated thnt many of them havo already mado application therefor to tho Stato Hoarder Equalization. It may be safely nssumod that at least nil such will avail them selves nf this udvnntago when .thoy list their shares in PM7. Tho result will bo not only to cmuurniss mo mate, out 10 unuuiy Duracn nil other classes of nronortv. Heforo suggesting a possible remedy, another met niiouiu uo menuonoa, ma last ueccnniai appraisement ot rculcstnto was had at a period of great prosperity. It was a lima of general high valuos, Slnco then thero has bcon a heavy dccllno. Farm property Is from twenty five to fifty por cent, cheaper lo-day than It was then. The consequence is thut farming lands ot tho State, whero they hav 0 not been affected by tho growth of cities or other development, aro now taxed on tho average moro nearly at their full nltiolnmoncy than any other class otpropcrtj. In fact, tho farm lands of somo ot tho counties aro taxed at even moro than they could be sold for. Hut whllo this Is truo of tho farm lands, tho reverse is trim of tho real estate ot many of tho cities of the Stale whero thero has boen great growth and development, ns In somo por- uuna mi uincinnnu ana at uioicmnu, laioua, Columbus nnd many other cities that might bo named, nnd the valuations placed upon tho real estate of these cities In 1830 are In the nggrcgnto less than llfty per cent, of their present true value in money, and In some casoslt will not cxeceu iwenijwiv e per rem, Tho consciousness of this lack of uniformity, and tho consequent Injustlco that must result to all who nro fairly taxed, has ha 1 much to do In producing tho unsatisfactory results that hnv o been experienced. It is thought that Congress will so amend sec tion o'JPJ of the Revised Statutes of tho United States ns to allow bank shares to be taxed ns heretofore without deduction. If so, that will afford n remedy against that part of tho recent decision. If not, jou can, if upon consideration it bo thought wlso to do so, provide against It by repealing tho definition of tho term credits, us used In tho constitution, to bo found in sec tion sro of tho Itevised Statutes ot Ohio. This statutory dcllnltlon is thought by many to bo unconstitutional. It has been upheld because of tho supposed hardship ot not allowing a de duction ot debts In making returns for taxos. Thero is much to be sold on both sides of the question. Tho frame rs of the constitution con cluded that no deduction should bo allowed. Tho General Assembly subsequently took the opposite view, which has ever slnco obtained. Your attention Is called to the matter onty that jou may again consider It in view of tho serious consequences it has now brought upon us In conncetionwith tho taxation of National bank shares. It Is unfortunato that wo should bo compollcd for any reason to enduro tho inequalities of val uation that exist, and suffer the evil conse quences thereof any longer; but it Isperhapes best. In low of all considerations, ns you seemed to think at your last session, to await tho time for tho regular decennial appraismrnt of real estate before h.vvlng it regularly re valued. Hut it Is thought something may bo accom plished that w ill afford at least p-vrttal relief. In tho special messago that has been referred to, It Is recommended thnt a Stato Hoard of equal ization be created to superintend tho rc-valuntlon that was there recommended. Tho nocesslty for such a board does not depend upon a revalua tion. On tho contrary, it may at least partly obviate tho need of re appraisement. Such a board might bo empowered to equalize tho ex isting valuations. If created, it should be given full power to equalize county with county anil cverj class and kind ot property with every other. The action of such a board would secure uni formity ot valuation In law ns well as in tact, and thus put an end to tho litigation that is now so successfully prosecuted by not only making it impossible, but by removing tho motive for It, slnco it is not believed there would be any disposition to contest a taxation that was based on n fair and uniform valuation. In addition to the duties of equalization, for which thero Is such pressing demand, such a board might be of great bcnetlt If intrusted w 1th a general supervision of the whole subject of taxation, and authorized to devise and enforce a moro efficient system than now obtains for so curing tho listing and taxation of personal prop erty. The recommendation is repeated to provide for tho taxation on their gross receipts of for eign corporations doing business In Ohio. Among theso may be mentioned telephones, transporta tion, sleeping car, parlor car, car trust and car equipment companies. Tho further recommenda tion is also repeated that tho assessors of per sonal property bo appointed in all cities. Tho recommendation Is con lined to citle- becauso tho constitution requires the election or all township officers. It is believed that a larco amount or mortenre securities unjustly escapes taxation. It Is quite common to llnd mortgages gh en on property in Ohio which aro not listed for taxation, Tho ex cuse given when tho mortgagee is applied to is that he is only an agent for somo ono who is a non resident. Iu many cases this is no doubt true, nui in many omcrs it is omy a suotcriugo to evade taxation. This abuse might be largely prevented by enacting that every mortgage on land In Ohio shall bo taxed whero the land is, and when tho tax Is not paid by the mortgagee, or some one for him, the mortgagor may pay tho same, and be credited therefor doublo tho amount so paid as an inducement thereto, as for a payment on his debt. Uy this method tho citizen who makes honest returns would havo no new obligation imposed upon him, and the non resident would only be m ido to nir. as foreign corporations do, for tho privilege ho en joys in a State that owes htm no special privi leges. . . Suitable provisions should be made for secur ing tho listing as against the several depositors of all deposits of money, credits and property with safety deposit and trust companies. And the law covernlm the taxation of nrivnta or unincorporated banks should bo so amended ns to pro von t the deduction of liabilities from cash and cash Items, bonds, stocks and securities held as Investments, as now allowed by section 2733 of tho Itevised Statutes of Ohio. This deduction is not allowed to anv other class of tax pajers, and no reason is known why If shoutd bo continued. The following communication is deemed Im portant. It is accordingly submitted herewith, and jou are respectfully requested to glvo duo attention to the matter to which It relates: "AUDITOnH OFFICE, FlKK COUNT V, "Waveuly Ohio, Nov, a.', l&w. 7Toi.

At.uert Netteiu Tho forctroinc contract is hcrebv this Slth dnr of March, 1330, approved. j. is. i'onvKEH, uovernor. The Stato Auditor's report shows that while our Stato Indebtedness is comparatively small and being rapidly extinguished, jet tho local indebtedness of the Stato Is targe and rapidly Increasing. It has now reached tho aggregate of moro than $33,000,000. This growth should bo checked. No county, township or municipal corporation should bo allowed to create a general debt oxceedlug ten per cent, of the tax 11luatlon of Its real estate. It Is recommended that such n provision bo enacted, and that you provide that In all cases whero there may already bo a general Indebtedness in excess of thatlimlLittnn.no further debt bo nllowpd tn tie contracted until the present debt Is reduced dciow mo nmuaiion meniionea. The statute enacted by you at j'our last ses sion, providing for the taxation und regulation ot tho liquor traffic, commonly known ns the Dow Law, has not been generally enforced f lending a decision by tho Supremo Court as to ts constitutionality. Tho Court has now, how ever, upheld the law, and notwithstanding the 111-ndvlscd efforts that aro being mado to over throw it in the United States courts, it will, no doubt, bo fully enforced ere long throughout the State. It has been already recommended that this net bo so amended as to give the Stato twenty live per cent, of tho tax arising from this sourco. Tho law has been construed to author ize sales by manufacturers and their agents in Quantities not less than a trallon. in munlclnal corporations where, under the provisions of sec tion ji 01 mo uci, mey nave proniouca aic, ocer and porter houses or other places where in toxicating liquors aro sold. TVilo la tin rt-iiT r, linn rtf Ihn mil fViot thn provision was Intended to cure. It should be amended so as to prohibit this practice. It Is believed that tho law will, when so changed. git e more saiisiaciory results 10 mo people 01 the State than any measure relating to the liquor traffic that has ever been enacted In Ohio. It is at least due this statute from both tho friends and tho enemies ot tho liquor t radio that It shall have a fair trial. Tho Stato Hoard of Health, the Food anl Dairy Commissioners, and the Fish and Game Commission, have been doing most excellent work. You are requested to examine carefully their reports, and it Is recommended that you wlllbo as liberal in providing for them as tho financial situation will allow. Tho Live Stock Commission deservo moro than n passing notice. Their report shows the importance of their work aud tho inadequacy of the appropriations heretofore made In their be half. It should bo remembered that Ohio, not withstanding her great manufacturing and com mercial interests, is ncv crthclcss, in cv cry senso of the word, a great agricultural State. The dreaded discaso of plcuro-pneumonia has been guarded against by tho Commission with great lgltanco and efficiency. Hut it Is evident that we can not havo that complete protection from It which wo should have until tho National Gov crnment takes hold ot tho matter In an earn est and practical way. It is recommended, therefore, that in addition to strengthening tho hands of these Commis sioners in every way possible for tho work that is Imposed upon them, you appeal to Con gress to empower tho United States Depart ment ot Agriculture to regulate inter-State commerce in cattle, and mako an appropriation large enough to enable nil cattle infected with this disease to be condemned and killed at the cost of the General Government, The history of this disease shows that thero Is no other efficient modo of dealing with it. Tho report of tho Hoard of Public Works shows that the receipts from ;rents and tolls for tho year ending November 15, 1880, amounted to tt'.M,030i; as against, for last year, tll8,'J53.Si; thus giving an Increase of 15,771.61. Tho dis bursements make a still moro favorable com rarlson. They were, for IMS, UC2.ST9.70 ; for 18Sfi. WJ1.7S; showing a saving of tJ4.T87.lr3. In other words tho difference in favor of the Stato for this jearovcrla3tisH0,6!i9.7J. This gratifying result is dueery largely to tho hope that has been revived tn all who are Interested In tho canals, that they are not to bo abandoned or allowed to fall into decay and disuse. They con stitute aaluable public property. The State should not dispose of any part of them. On tho contrary, It should bo made distinctly the policy of the S'tate to improvo and uphold and main tain them. "When this becomes w ell understood tho result will bo that business upon and along them will be revived; now boats will be built, and their great benefits will be made each year moro apparent, and at no distant day they should and will becomo self sustaining. Tho Ohio National Guard is an organization that reflects tho highest credit upon tho State. Tho encampments during the summer wero orderly and well conducted throughout. Officers and men ullke appear to take great pride in be coming efficient and capable soldiers, and It can bo said with perfect truthfulness that in drill, discipline and appearance they are the equals of any similar organization of any Stato in the Union. They merit all tho assistance and en couragement you can extend. No event connected with tho history of Ohio Is of greater Importance or significance than tho adoption of our first organic law, tho Ordinance of 187, and the first settlement on our soil, In pursuanco thereof, at Marietta, on tho 7th day of April, 17&t. The centennial anniversary of this settlement is close at hand. Tho adoption of this ordinance is to be celebrated by the Na tional Hducatlonal Association at its meeting in Chicago, July next, und patriotic pcoplo ot tho whole State will bo pleased to see this anniver sary suitably recognized by an appropriate cele bration in Ohio, and by tho erection upon tho slto of this first settlement of an enduring mon umental structure. Tho citizens of Marietta, co-operating with tho Pioneer Association and the Ohio Stato Atvlfteologlcul and Historical Society, havo in augurated measures to secure theso results. The oecaslon should bo mado one In which not only tho whole State, but all tho other States that formed part of "the territory lying north west of the Ohio river" can participate. For this same general purpose thero will bo held at Columbus In tho autumn of l&ii un "Ohio Centennial Exhibition," which Is do signed to bo not only commemorative, but also educational, and Illustrative of our progress and development as a pcoplo. Tlio General Assem bly will probably bo appealed to for aid to carry out theso worthy purposes, and It is earnestly recommended that it bo granted. In the flay of our strength and prosperity wo should remember tho valor of tho urmy, tho statcsminshlp of the fathers, and tho struggtos und sufferings of tho pioneers, who secured for us tho priceless hcritago wo enjoy. It will make us more devoted and zealous in the discharge of our duties, and tcuch our children a lesson of patriotism und appreciation that will make freo popular government and civil and religious lib erty moro secure In tho land which tho Lord our Uod hath given us. ltcspectfully submitted, J, H.
