Two Amendments 'Prom Little Uock it is iT|x>vtal llial Governor Fiiti'ull, in the niiproadi- iiig campaign, will devote much of bis time to advocating adoption of two proposed amendments tu the state constitution, designed to prevent recurrence of the financial plight in which the state found itsulf at the close of the I'amcll administration. One of the proposed amendments limits biennial appropriations by the legislature to ?2,500,000 "excepting monies raised or collected for educational purposes, highway purposes, to pay Confederate pensions ami the just debts of tlie state," and provides thai "none of the rates for properly, excise, privilege or personal taxes now levied, shall be increased by the General Assembly except after ihc approval of the qualified electors voting thereon at an election, or in case of emergency, by the vote of, three-fourths of the members elected to each house of the General Assembly." The oilier proposed amendment provides that except to refund existing indebtedness the sUitq shall issue no bonds or other evidence of indebtedness except on the vote of the people. There are enough loopholes in the first proposal to make it of doubtful value, even if it is conceded that such constitutional limitation upon the power of the General Assembly is/du- sirable. The second, however, thai' requiring a referendum on proposed bond issues, is wholly commendable and should receive the overwhelming endorsement of the people of tlie state. The danger of debt, public or private, is one lesson ttiat the depression should have driven home to every properly owner and taxpayer. The people of Arkansas for generations will be paying debts contracted in their name by elective representatives who recklessly, abused the power and responsibility that was entrusted to them. The people should reserve such powers to themselves for the future. Need for Protection A New York judge the other day called attention to a glaring flaw in the legal machinery which is sii|>|K»ed lo protect citizens from financial loss as the result of automobile accidents. His warning was issued after a New Yorker had slrnck a man and his wife with his auto. The couple sued him and won a judgment of $0,500. Tlie motorist promptly filed a petition in bankruptcy, tiling the judgment against him as his only liability and his assets as nothing. As n result, the motorist got oil' scot free, ami the people he had injured were unable to collect a red cent. To the judge, this case stood as a warning of the need for a compulsory liability insurance law; ami the judge's viewpoint looks very sound. No man should be permitted to drive a car unless it is certain that anyone lie may injure will be able to get financial redress from him. pros- relx-l- The Patient Rebels II Is H paradoxical (act Ilisil the more perous business becomes, the ^iratei 1 ils llon against tlie New Ui-al.
