Synopsis an 1 ConuneitL.s or: Ii»
proveraents Made Over
ihe Constitution
of 1874.
Art. XX, See 33. provides tS : no:,
more than three amendments to .
Constitution may be submitted at any
one time by the General Assembly; ali
proposed amendments shall be pub
lished weekly for thirty days, the last
publication to be at least sixty days
prior to the election; a majority o;
those voting, at. an election is neces

While more latitude is give:: It will
continue to be a somewhar. clibcult
matter to amend the Constitution. No
iimlt is placed upon the number of
amendments the people may submit
under the Initiative :nd Referendum,
but the General Assembly Is stl.i re
stricted to three at any one electlo: .
Since amendments can be submitted at
only sixty-day sessions, there can bo
'but three offered every rotir yeuvs by
the legislature. However, the people
may submit any number every two
years, since general elections must
continue to be held biennlany on re
count ol the election of members cf
Congress. Considerable saving i3 pro
vided in the cost of publishing propos
ed amendments, the time being red re
ed from six months to thirty cays By
providing that the final pubnea ;on
shall be not less than sixty dnya prior
to the election at which the vne is to
be taken, ample.time is given for trio
most thorough circulation of trie pro
posed measure, snd for the voters to
familiarize themselves with its p:o
visions. .
Quadrennial Elections.
Art'. Ill, Sec. 12, provides that ''ins
general elections shall be held quad
rennially, on Tuesday following Ci 2
first Monday in November, rrurn and
after the general election hen: 111 the
year 1920.” Other provisions :i:; the
j terms of the various State, district,
county and township officers at rour
years, except that Justices o: the Su
preme Court shall be elected for terms
j of eight years. The terms or Chancel
lors are reduced to four years.
1 This is 81 popular reform, especially
j when considered in connection with
j Sec. 1, Art. VI, which provides that
; no one of the state officers ••s:ir.,:i bo
! eligblo as his own successor, nor slid
! he, during his term of office, re con 3
’a candidate for any other office.' Thi
| gives a public official a ruauonabiy
j long tenure, the same in effect as thfd
which now prevails through mo un
written party law of a- second re; m ro -
an officer whose services are satisfac
tory. In some years there have uee;-.
as many as nine elections—primary,
genera,! and special—and the people
have been kept in an unnecessary po
litical turmoil. There wa» somebody
constantly “running for office."
officer was scarcely more than induc -
ed into one office than he began pull
ing the wdres and Ipiilding his reac t
to succeed himself or to be promote:!
to some other. It was not the fault
of the man, but of the system. This
has had a tendency to build up politi
cal machines and perpetuity in oflice
holdiHg. This will be impossible und
er the new provision. A state officer
will serve four years and then he will
step down and out, and he cannot
spend the time for which he rs paid a
sal ry in campaigning for another of
fice. The prohibition of succession
and becoming a candidate for any oth
er office does not apply to county offi
cers. file chief advantages of the
new system will be that one-haif the
expense aind worry of frequent elec
tions will be eliminated, and political
machines will be removed as a men
ace to good government.
Minority Representation.
Art. in, Sec. J8, provides that one
member of the State Board of Elec
tion Commissioners, and Art. XX, Sec.
25, provides that on all public Boards
and Commissions appointed, there
shrll be at least one member of the
most numerous minority political par
This is an assertion of political jus
tice in keeping with the spirit of gen
uine democracy. It recognizes citi
zenship above partisanship. It is just
dmi fail to a lunge element that would
otherwise be denied participation in
the conduct of state affairs. The doc
trine that officials and clerks nre ppo
litical spoils, and that all appointive
officials and clerks are political spoils
men, is vicious and dangerous. De
monstrated fitness, efficiency s.nd In
tegrity are to be the proper rp*alifi
cations for service.
The Judiciary.
Art. VII, Sec. 2, provides that the
Supreme Court shall consist of a Chief
Justice and six Associate Justices, ana
that it may sit in two departments
and en banc, and shall always he open
for business. The two additional jus
tices sha,ll be elected at the first gen
eral election after the ratification of
the Constitution. Their term anan ne
eight years. Other sections provide
ior the complete system <r circuit,
