Unlike Oregon and most other
states the tute of New York haa a
c o n 1 1 i t ution under
'ew York's which the legislature
lax Flan may classify property
and hence la - not re
quired to observe uniformity in tax
ution. Seemingly the New York leg
islature has the same power that our
legislature would have If Oregon ad
opted the amendmentt written by As
sessor C. P. strain and approved by
the Farmers t'nlon state organiza
tion. A constitutional convention is to be
held In New York In April and it Is
eaid a proposal will be made to re
vert back to the rule of uniformity In
taxation. This has caused the Tax Re
form Association In Its recent annu
al report to set forth the following
observations on the situation:
"Any limitation on the power of the
legislature to classify the subjects of
taxation and to prescribe the plan or
method by which each class shall be
taxed, or to grant such exemptions as
Mem desirable for the encouragement
of commerce and industry, would
place obstacles in the way of progress
and be out of harmony with the trend
of modern fiscal policy. New York
Is one of the few states whose consti
tution has been free from such lim
itations, and consequently the legisla
ture has been able to modify the sys
tem of taxation In accordance with
modern Industrial developments. Th
tax laws of New York may be far
from perfect, but they have been to
a large measure followed by states
whose constitutions permit such leg
islation. Many other states, unable
to enact similar statutes because of
constitutional limitations, are trying
to remove those barriers, and the
laws of New York are frequently used
as an argument for the granting of

:i.n similar to that of New York
it would be powlble to exempt mort
gages from taxation and thus do away
with a situation that haa led to much
complaint h-re, both from borrowers

The senate even refused to accept
a suggestion by Senator Garland that
the present law relating to the re

90 days while charges against him
were being presented in the courts.
Had this suggestion been adopted the
ability of the governor to command
effective law enforcement would have
been immensely strengthened. With

governor will be without power to
