Three arc proposed amendments to the slato constitution, two ;ive acls of (he legislature referred lo the people for their verdict, and one, by no means IciisL in importance, is the 3-mili county road lax. The Si-mill road tax represents a very snmll proportion of the tax hill of Slis- sisslppi' county properly'owners, luil it is a mighty'big thine; in its .service to tin's county. It is almost the .sole source of money for the maintenance of 1,300 miles of county roiuls and 1,100 county / bridges. Without it those roads and biidifcs, ii'iany of tliem none: loo uooil despite all posiiMo ellorLs to l<eep them up, would .soon become impassable. Tile resulting hardship would full not alone iil)on fljjil Ini-fre |)roportioii of our rural population which lucks immediate access lo hai'd-Kiirfaced roads, but upon the business people of. the towns, whose customers would be cut oil', and upon all who ever have occasion to travel in 'the country- on. .business, to visit friends, or for : . any other purpose. II would soon carry Itivuc parts of this county back to the duy.i when horseback to the days when horseback was back was the only means, of travel during large parts of the yeiir. It would deprive thousands of rural residents of mail delivery, it would delay marketing of their crops, it would force upon them lower and relatively primitive standards , of ''"»£• , ; '".v.,.rt'->. ; ..,;,. '. We mention these things because two years ago, because many voters gave little consideration to the question, the county read tax came perilously close to defeat. It j s essential. It should have the support of every voter, whether he lives in town or country, on hard road or dirt road. It is vital to the economic and social life of the county and none of ( ,.s can afford [ 0 oppose il, even though its defeat might save us substantial sums on our tax 'bills * * » The three constitutional amendments have been discussed in this column before. Amendment 19 would prohibit the legislature from increasing taxes without vote of the people. Amendment 20 would forbid the legislature fiom Lending the taxpa/ere of the state without vote of the people. These are the so-called Futvell amendments. BLTCTHEVILLK. <ABK.)

If the people of the stalo are willing to pay incrcHH- ed taxes und shoulder jncraiwcd bonded indebtedness, thai is their privilege. Hut no one, not even tlioJr elected representatives, should have the power to impose those things upon them. Vote for Amendments It) and 20. Amendment' 21 provides four-year terms for all stale and county officers except legislative officers. In principle we think it is largely right; in detail we are afraid it has very serious defects. Hul donT be stampeded by stories that it is piui of a deep laid plot to talfc slate and county government out of the hands of the people. There is nothing worse behind it than the natural desire of most officials to hold Ihcir jobs for /our years instead of two. If you think that is proper you might as well vote for this unicml- nicnl and trust to later elections to correct defects in the amendment. If you tliinlt two years is long enough for a mini to hold a public job without going before the people Ihe thing lo do, of course, is to vote no on No. 21. Referred Acts 78 and 280 arc both without merit. No. 280 was discussed in Ihis column yesterday.' It threatens the complete ruin of our common school system •mid'the paralysis of city and county governments. Act 78 is less dangerous, but lias little to commend il. Under, the pretense of making (he stale department of education more directly subject to Iho will of Ihe electorate it would in fact .surrender the school system to the professional politician: It provides for an elective instead of an appointive slate commissioner of education, but makes of that oll'icor a mere figurehead, subjecl entirely to an'appointive state board. We now have an elective board, responsible directly to the people of the state, which in turn selects an experienced School administrator to direct the stale's educational program. If Act 78 wins it will give us an appointive board, responsible only to the governor, to which the elected state superintendent would be completely subject.
