In view of the language of the
court in the opinion, members of the
constitutional convention, now in
session here, were discussing in an
interested way the question whether
the initiative and referendum and
recall, if adopted in the proposed
new constitution, may not afterward
be knocked out by the court as be

That the ordinance of 1787, under
which Ohio and four other states
were admitted into the union, is still

quired the furnishing of information
without giving compensation there
for. In the course of his ruling

of the court, Bays:

under, above and before all laws and
