a dissenting vote.
Many members of the convention
spoke for and against the amendment.
Fornier Governor Pleasant objected
to.any limitation whatever being plac
ed upon the Legislature and voted
against the Reid amendment placing
the limit at 3 per cent. He gave an
interesting review of the income tax,
telling of how it was proposed by the
noted English statesman, who was
mobbed in the streets of London for
his suggestion, but which finally was
put into effect in 1799. He said the
law proved a succes, but through a
reactionary movement was repealed
in 18818, but restablished some years
ago. Later it was adopted by other
European countries and also assessed
by the Unted tes.
"There sho be no limit placed in
the const!tution as. to the rate of in
come tax." said Colonel Pleasant. "The
Constitution of England does not con
I tain it and the English people make
,,the income tax high in times of war
. and low in times of peace. This same
tree rein should be given the Loils
iifana Legislature. There is no doubt
in my mind but that the Legislature
will reflect the sentiment of people
and will assess or not assess the in
come tax as the people desire."

PRESIDENT TALKS J
ON WORLD PEAC;
SAYS NATIONS CAN SETTLE I
THEIR DIFFERENCES WITHOUT
Washington. - President Harding,
delivering a commencement address
at American University here, found
the subject of world peace occupying
so conspicuous a place on the pro
gram that he was prompted to depart I
from his prepared manuscript and de
clare for the preservation of peace by c
sovereign states, without the interfer.
ence of a world "super power."
The president's remarks followed an I
address by Newton W. Rowell, K. C., I
of Toronto, Canada, who suggested 4
that the best contribution North c
America could make to civilization I
was "for men on this side of the wa
ter" to stand together behind tne
movement for peaceful settlement of i
nt'ernational disputes. Another speak
er, who touched on the question of
peace was J. J. Jusserand, the French
ambuassador, and the general discus.
sion developed such a trend that Bish.
op John W. Hamilton, the presiding
chancellor, referred to the gathering
aI a "peace conference."
An added touch of the same char
acter was given by the singing of a
song which appeared on the coam
Smencement program under the title of
S"a international anthem," and which,
which was rendered to the tune of
SAmeral" and "God Sav the King,."
made a hit. Beers the singing began,
