By Associated Press to The Review Columbus, O., Jan. 7.—Arguments contending for and against the validity Of the classification taxation amendment were made before the State Supreme court today, hy an Imposing array of legal talent in tha suit brought by W. A. Qreonlund of Cleveland, to compel Secretary of State Fulton to publish tha result of the election and declare the amendment carried. Four distinct questions are before the court. - Two presented by former Governor Harmon aad Rufus B. Smith of Cincinnati, ln support of the classification amendment are the "Shlnn" amendment, which carries wtth lt the uniform rule provision, wah not legally enacted, because the provision was illegal, and that tho two amendments do not* conflict because the uniform rule provision of the ''Shlnn** amendment was not Intentionally re-enacted by the voters, that they voted only on the proposition of exempting real estate mortgages from taxation aad that tha classiflcaatlon and the ''Shlnn* amend- events therefore do not conflict and may be reconciled. Attorneys L. D. Johnson and P. B. 'Dempaey, representing the attorney general's office, and W. & Stevens at Uhrichsville, aipued that the classification amendment ls ln Irreconcilable conflict with the "Shlnn" amendment ea- peclally the re-enacted provision for uniform rule*, and therefore the classification amendment must -all becauso the "Shlnn" proposal received the largest number of votes, as provided by the present constitution. Johnson declared both amendments could not stand aa the constitution could not bave two same numbered ftlalss. Questions asked by members of the court indicated that It was more concerned in the fourth question, whether or not classification and uniform role may not, after all, be reconciled. Neither of opposing counsel, however, aeemed to rely In this possibility. Counsel representing the attorney general's office waa vary positive this could not be done. As the legislature ta awaiting tho decision of the court oa theaa vital tax q-assttons before attempting to draft the various taa laws, lt to expected that Ml early decision will be rendered. The importance of the question to ha decided by the court ana al lasted by the fact tbat Governor Cox was an Interested listener to the argument-. Mayor John Qalvln and City Solicitor Zlelonskl of Cincinnati alao were pros ent, besides many others interested in taxation questions. 85.3 Per Cent of U. S.

IB OOOD. NATIONAL MU8IC CO. The lighting and heating problem of the city was a paramount issue at the regular session of tbe City Council Monday evening and a lengthy discussion of the subject took place. Much valuable information as to the existing situation was given. The discussion was opened by Mayor Westover who addressed the assemblage relative to the recent hearing upon the gas question before the United States Fuel Administration, at Washington. "In going before the national officials the Alliance officials had no contractile rights, no legal agreement to set forth because the administration was then and there notified by the East Ohio Gas company tbat the court of our own county had decided against us, leaving us at the mercy of either the Fuel Administration or the Utilities Commission, so we were only able to cry 'calamity* for the property holders and 'humanity' ln behalf of the inmates thereof, which I believe covers the most reasonable cause of action or appeal to such a commission." The Mayor called attention to tbe recent epidemic of influenza, when tbe city hrfl several thousand cases and suggested what it would have meant to the citisens to have the gas supply shut off. This situation, he believed Induced the administration to issue an order to forbid the cutting off of the supply of gas. Continuing the Mayor said** "But It was ^gainst tb« will of the East Ohio Gas company which has notified us that it must and will take it away from-Ob at the expiration of the administration's order. The recommendation _hat we erect an artificial gas plant I believe is good advice from people who know of what they are talking. Are we going to reap benefit by this advice or will we wait until November 1st and then be forced to take electricity st a much bigher price and greater profit or will this city build a plant of Its own and be ready to take care of Itself at actual cost? I understand that lt has been tested and proven that current can be furnished at a profit in Cleveland at three centa per kllowat If that Is so why should we hesitate and accept a seven and a half year tie-up on a 100 per cent proposition based on an abnormal period of war times, and such as we have never seen and never again expect to see? "I would be pleased to see the starting of a plant la this city bat would not wish it without the voice of the people, therefore I am going to beg and hope that you Instruct our solicitor to prepare for a vote on this question, then should the same carry and you appropriate the necessary funds, I will see that the people will not be disregarded as heretofore. And should we have s plant of our own each and ovary locality should $e treated alike, not as lt is today where some bave light and others have not If we can not use all alike let us turn all out and show no partiality. Please consider a municipal light plant. I thank you." General Manager Bonner, of The Alliance Gas A Power company, by request was present at the meeting and was called upon to discuss the lighting aad heating question. He said in part: "The street lighting situation to this—I don't Intend to deny that the service and street lighting, has and is poor. Tha chief source of trouble is with ths incandescent lamps.

By Assoelated Press to The Review Copenhagen, Denmark, Jan. 7.— Berlin ls ln a state of complete anarchy and civil war bas begun there, according to the Munich correspondent ot the Polltiken. His information, he says, ls based on telephonic messages from the German capital. All the banks are barricaded and a great number of tbe publlo buildings are in the hands of the Spartacan, or extreme radical group. Thousands of armed workmen of the Spartacus faction, the correspondent reports, are crowding the streets and at several points firing has begun. The sound of machine gun fire could be heard from all parts of Berlin. The message reported the Intention of the government to make an effort to storm the building of the police guards later ln the day and take possession of all the machine guns and cannon there. Dr. Karl Liebknecht, the Spartacan leader, has been seen here and there about tbe city organising his troops for the final fight, which the correspondent says ls expected to begin soon. Hundreds of persons are reported fleeing from the city. The Independent socialists, whose leaders were recently dismissed from the government, are reported to have gone over entirely to the Spartacans. These two groups have issued a Joint proclamation declaring that the final fight to preserve the revolution must now be fought Reporta from Berlin on Monday relayed through Amsterdam indicated a disturbed ixmdltlen of affairs ta Berlin on Sunday due to soother attempt ot the Spartaous -group to obtain control of the city ad thereby uf the central Qagnan ga*&rnment The ultra radiant forces opposed to the Ebert government sallied forth from their stronghold near the district which contained the principal newspaper office gad seised several of the newspaper plants together with the office of the Wolff Bureau, the semi-official news agency. Apparently the government still retained control of the German wireless service for contemporaneously with these reports of revolutionary activities on the part of the Spartacus faction oame an official wireless message declaring that Germany was about to take diplomatic and*mllltary measures against the Russian Bolshevik government for her own protection., The Spartacus faction has maintained close relations with Russian Bolshevik interests, and apparently lt was the presence ln Berlin of M. Radek, a Bolshevik emissary from Russia who had been propagating Bolshevik Ideas ln co-operation with the Liebknecht group that precipitated the Ebert gov- ernment's declaration of a virtual state of war between Germany and Russia. Radicals Stage Demonstration. Fy Associated Press to The Keview Berlin, Germany, Monday, Jan. 6.—« (1 p. m.)—The Spartacus group Is engaged today in a big demonstration against the government. Tens of thousands of followers of Dr. Karl Liebknecht have been parading ln Un- ter den Linden and the Brandenberger- strasse and, as this dispatch is filed, are returning along Unter den Linden. Up to this time no shots have been fired. The Wilhelmstrasse from Unter den Linden to below the Lelpzigstrasse ls packed full of government sympathizers who have been standing there for two hours, it appears to be the government's strategy to prevent the Spartacans demonstrating before the government offices. Hundreds of youths and other civilians in the Spartacan ranks are carrying rifles. Fist fighting has occurred at tbe corner of the Wilhemstrasse and Unter den Linden, where the Bolshevik demonstrators took away their opponents' standards. Spartacan soldiers took a stand In open order In front of the Hotel Adlon with their rifles ready, but there was no firing. The Spartacan marchers, with the exception of tbe workmen frqra certain factories, comprise the scum ot the city and four-fifths of the whole number are bedraggled women and young girts. The American flag has been hoisted over tbe Hotel Adlon. where the American officers' belonging to the prisoner and food commissions are living. The opinion seems general that only a miracle can prevent blood letting before tbe end of the day.
