The I'ontriillan Hill.
On Friday of last week Mr Hucka-
t,EW from tho Senate Committee on
Constitutional Reform reported n bill to
tho Benato which provides for a Con
vention to amend tho Constitution of
tho Stnto. It Is In marked contrast to
tho bills which havo been proposed In
both Houses by Radical members, and
If enacted Into a law will Bccure n fair
convention and a fair decision by tho
pcoplo upon tho amendments Which tho
Convention shall propose
In tho first placo by tho arrangement
which lsmndoitilhoblllfor delegates
at largo and for district delegates, tho
Convention will bo constituted, pretty
certainly, of an equal number of mora
herefrom each party, whlloopportunlty
Is nflbrded for tho choice of good men.
There aro to bo 32 delegates at largo and
each voter of tho Stato Is to voto for no
moro than 10. This application of tho
limited voto (after tho oxaraploof Now
York) will secure 10 to each party. Then
district delegates aro to be chosen upon
tho plan of tho frco voto (oxcopt In Al
legheny and Luzerne) bo that' all tho
pcoplo shall bo fully and Justly repre
sented. In Allegheny and Luzcrno tho
limited. voto Is applied so as to secure
tho samo object. Tho number or tils
trlct dolcgatcs Is to bo 103 and tho Stato
is divided into convenient districts for
tho purposo of selecting them.
Ono Important featuro of tho bill is
tho provision that one-thlrdof tho mem
bers may requlro tho separate submis
sion to tho peoplo for their adoption or
rejection of any amendment proposed
by tho Convention. This will afford
tho pcoplo full opportunity to discrim
inate between good and bad amend
ments and to accept only thoso they
shall fully approve.
Tho compensation of members of tho
Convention is fixed at $500, and tho
duration of tho Convention Is not to ex
ceed 100 days of actual session.
Tho provision to voto upon tho ques
tion whether a Convention shall bo cal
led, at tho samo timo the delegates aro
elected, Is a very unnecessary complica
tion, which will bo very likely to lead
to mischief. In fact tho proposition
would bo better suited to a Juvcnllo de
bating society than to grave legislators.
It Is tho amendments that nro wanted,
and it Is tho business of tho Legislature
to havo theso submitted to n votoof tho
peoplo. If they approve they will
adopt them and If they disapprove they
will reject. That Is tho only decision of
tho peoplo that can bo effective on tho
Relief from Taxation. A gross
tibuso Is being carried on by tho Legis
lature In roleuslng Incorporated Ceruo
tcrles and Churches from taxation. The
former are generally money making af
fairs, nnd therefore ought to bear their
share of taxation. Thoso of tho hitter
that apply for relief from taxation, are
not tho humblo churches of poor congre
gations but wealthy establishments
which estimate their valuo by thous
ands and millions. Tho release of these
of course transfers tho taxes from them
toother objects of taxation. In refer
Ing to this subject tho Philadelphia Age
says: "Proparty fo tho amount of fifty
million dollars has been withdrawn
from taxation In this city by tho Legis
lature, and yet tho work goes on, In
stead of taxing personal property, tho
above leak should bo stopped. Thcro
is no moro reason why land used for
cemetery purposes should bo exempt
from taxation, than land sold and held
for building uses."
A Constitutional amendment taking
all power from tho Legislature to ex
empt property from tho operation of
laws imposing taxes, is greatly needed.
If tho exemption was applied to poor
Churches and Cemeteries ntonc,lt might
bo well enough, but It is not these that
mako tho application or receivo tho
benefit. It Is tho wealthy ones, and tho
larger their real valuation tho moro vc
hement they become. In demanding re
Wo observo tho Inquiry mndo In sev
eral papers why Allegheny and Luzomo
are subjected to n different rule of elec
tion In Mr. HuckaIiKW'h Convention
bill. Onorrnon Is that theso counties
hnvo respectively seven and llvo dele
gates, and theso numbers do not divide
readily inlu fractions. Perhaps tho
controlling reason Is that It Is a princi
pal purposo of tho bill that each politi
cal party shall hnvo Just one-half tho
delegates In tho Conveiilli.n. ' To ac
complish this with romp? ratlvo ccrtnln
ty It Is nccusnry that Allegheny bo
divided so ns to olect 1 Republicans nnd
a Democrats, nnd Luzcrno .1 Democrats
nud 2 Republicans. Thoso editors who

Injustice to tho author of tho bill.
The t'onl .Miners.
Tho public generally wcro glad to
learn that tho Coal Minors had ngrccd
to go to work Inst week. They wore to
a great extent In straightened circum
stances, nnd mnny of them In nctunl
want. Hut nt this Juncture tho Rail
road companies raised tho freight so
high that tho operators can not send
their coal to market, and consequently
but llttlo mining cm bo done. Wo
agreo with tho Laucastcr Intelligencer
that "tho Legislature should take
prompt action In this matter. A regu
lar rato of charges for carrying coal
should be Uxed by law, and so fixed
that tho law cannot bo evaded. Tho
Interests of producers nnd consumers

It Is to bo hoped tho Democratic State
Convention nt lis next meeting will do
nwny with tho folly of " complimentary
votes." Tho thing has grown Into an
ovil, that calls loudly for reform. Con
ventions havo been accustomed to give
" complimentary votes" to Tom, Dick
and Harry, ns a preliminary to earnest
business. As a sort of skirmish prac
tice to get tho lay of tho land nnd to
enable tho rent contestants to feel ench
other's weak places, It has been tolor
oted heretofore, but tho llttlo crcn,
tures who onco got n tasto of such
'complimentary votes" nro suro to
turn up on overy occasion thereafter,
and finally becomo clamorous and an
noying In asserting tholr claims to real
nominations. They seem to think that
certain number of " compllmonta-
rles " ought surely to bring nbout tho
real thing. To get rid of theso pests,
tho Convention should stop tho prac
tice of " complimentary " voting, nnd
mako It clear that oneo being before n
convention establishes no claim to n
nomination nt any timo thereafter.
If thcro is a class of crawlers on tho
face of tho earth who abovo (or below)
all others descrva hearty contempt, it
is tho spoonies who hang nbout con ven
Hons coaxing for "complimentary"
votes, or who persistently annoy editors
for puffs. Wo admit wo havo never
been troubled much by them, as wo
havo a short hand mode of disposing of
them. But tho act of a delegnto who
casts n "complimentary" voto Is scarce
ly less contemptiblo than it Is to seek
It. Let tho press denounco both, nud
bo careful to avoid tho practice them
selves, and between tho two n reform
may bo effected. When onco under
stood by tho titmouses that they must
look to somo other i-ourco for notoriety
they will ccoso to bo troublesome. Don't
print their nnmesfor If editors "sour"
on them their occupation is gone.

If tho bequest for tho benefit of Isaac
Fowler is an annuity within tho mean
ing of tills net, being under two hundred
uouars, men it is not tnxamc.
An annuity Is defined to bo a yearly
'I payment of n certain sum of money
"granted to another In feo, for llfoor
" lor years, charging tho person of tho
" grantor only. Co. Lltt, 1 U, 0, 1 Win.
" Jixrs. 722, 2 Ulk. Com. 10."
This bequest Is not of n certain sum
neither Is It a chargo upon tho person of
tho grantor, nor upon any devise under
tho will of tho testator. In both theso
essentials it falls to come within tho
definition of nn annuity. In tho first
place, tho fund Itself, out of which or
from tho Interest of which tho yearly
payment was directed to bo mado, was
uncertain nod could not bo ascertained
until tho estate was settled; and in tho
next place, tho legatee was entitled not
to n certain amount nor to tho interest
on u certain sum, but toalthat might
bo received from tho investment of tho
share of tho cstnto bequeathed to the
executors in trust for tlio son. Tho in
terest, whatever it might amount to,
wns given to tho son for life, and the
principal was given over nt his death.
This principal amounted to $2,800, which
at 0 per cent, interest produced a lc.s
sum than $200, but invested In 7 3-10 TJ.
bonus it amounts to more than that
sum. It is truo tbat when a testator
directs tho Interest upon a certain sum
to bo paid uunuauy to a legatee, it is to
be understood that tho interest nt tho
letral rate is to bo paid. But when a
fund, as in this caso, Is placed In the
nanus or a trustco who is to nay tho In
terest to ono person for life, nnd the
irincipal over nt ins ucain, all ol tlio
nterest received Is to bo paid to tho
person cntiucti to mo interest,.
