The State Convention yesterday adopted an amendment to the Constitution
, making an essential change in the mode of electing the numerous officers appended to the Government
of cities and towns.
, and Councilmen are to be elected by the people as heretofore; but Attorneys for the Commonwealth
, Clerks, Sergeants
, and Constables are to be appointed by the Corporation Courts
, and all other officers by the Council or legislative body.
In adopting this amendment, the Convention
obeyed what seemed to be the sentiment of the people, and we are inclined to the belief that it will be cordially ratified by the popular vote.
