Baker while at Columbian Univer sity Washington D C Tune 1902 At the time of the adoption of th Constitution in 1787 the population of the United States was less than four million its settled area was confined largely to the Atlantis seabord its ternal commerce was in its intaac and its foreign commerce truly insig nificant in comparison with Its present proportions The men whs framed knew nothing of the steamboat the aleatrio wire and many of the other appliances most useful In our modern civilization It Us authors had been told that the instrument they were preparing would survive the vicissitudes of a hundred and more years and continue without change to meet the demands of sev entyfive or a hundred million people with all the complexities of society as it exists today we can well beHve they would have listened with a smile of in credulity to the prediction But so Isthe Constitution which they framed is still iu full force and vigor the chart and guide of one of the greatest nations of the earth controlling it within prescribed limits not only in ts internal affairs but Plso in its intercourse with the nations of th earth Surely they bullded wiser an better than they knew Contemplating their work today we can well believe that they were guided by a higher wisdom than that of man in the fashioning and perfecting of this great charter of human rights The Constitution in some of its feat ures was a departure from the old and accepted theories of government and as it rejected some things that were old and adopted others tbat were new it was necessarily experimental The Articles of Confederation had proven inadequate when tbe pressure of war was removed As has been said The United States found themselves overwhelmed with debt without theInmeans of paying it Rich in the mate ials of an extensive commerce they found their ports crowded with foreign ships and themselves without the power to raise a revenue Abounding in all the elements of national wealth wonted resources to defray rdinary e expenses of govenment Thegenetalgovernmeotcoulddevls- and e recommend but it had no power to execute The States must act upon the recommendation and if they neglected or refused to act there was no power to compel them The Constitu Lion las the outgrowth of the evident need for a stronger government than tbat of the Confederation which was merely a compact or league between thin thirteen States with but little or uo real power in the federal head When the fathers came to form a new government it was not strange that there were differences of opinion and tbat doubts and fears prevailed The smaller States were jealous of the in tlueiico of the larger States and all apprehensive of the overshadowing power of the general government- As a result of this they were very much disagreed a3 to the kind of government which should be forced hence in the conventions verydivcrgent views were advanced and advocated Some of the delegates retired from the con vention before Itfe work was comple ted believing that it would prove a failure others refused to j in in the recommendation forthe ratification of the Constitution and others attached to the Confederation which had west h ered the storms of the War of the Rev olution protested agaInst it as subver sive of the liberties to secure which esthey had made so many sacrifices of blood and treasure Fortunately for them and for posterity a conclusion was reached the Constitution was adopted signed by a majority of the delegates and submitted to the peo pie for ratification as Washington who presided over the convention said in his letter to Congress the result ot asplrlt of mltyandor that mutual deference and concession which the peculiarity our political situation rendered indispensable In construing the Constitution its purpose the contemporaneous history and the language usedthe words In which it is expressedare to beeon sidered One of the first resolutions presented adoptedTResolvad tbat a national govern ment ought to be established consist ling of a supreme judicial legislative and executive A Confcdracy had been tried and had proved defective it had served tinee war while the States were held together by the cohesive power of a common danger but it was seen by the saga clogs men of the times that It was in anpreSp nslblHtlEs o f an independent power in its true and widened seta questiontat the very beginning of their deliber stints and declared for the establish ment of A national government league of the States had been tried and found wanting A stronger govern ment self executing iu its piss ers was demanded A failure to recognise this fact and accept it In its true signifi cance has been the fruitful cause of much of tbe division and strife which have prevailed over the proper con struction of the Constitution- A national government was estab listed not with unlimited but with itsts The preamble of the Constitution declares its source We the people and its purpose to form a most perfect Union establish justice insure domestic tranquility provide for tbe generale odt to and our posterity Article expressly asserts its suprem ace This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be wade in pursuance thereof and all treaties made or which shall be made under tbe authority of the United States shall be tbe supreme law of the land and the judges Jn every State shall b e bound thereby anything in tbe Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding Here is nationality asserted in words too plain for misconstruction Three departments are established as contemplated by the resolution quoted above the legislative power vested i Congress the executive power vested the President and the judicial pow er vested in the Supreme Court and tbe Interior courts established by Con gress Tbe power and authority of these departments and other Ii h delegated to the general government are declared other rights are denied to the general government others are denied to the States The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution nor prohibited by it to the States are re served to the States respectively to the people Rights are granted rights are nIed and rights are reserved and the people are the source of all Hence it is in the language of Mr Webster The peoples Constitution the pco pies government made for tbe people made by the people and answerable to the people The people of the United States have declared that this Consti lion shall be the supreme law Sovereignty being conceded exten slue or limited as it may be it cassia s with it all of the means necessary and proper for its exercise for It would be fully to say tbat a government is sovereign and deny it the attributes of sovereignty to say it is a nation and at the same time strip it of the Inherent and essential powers of a nation Among the enumerated powers con tarred by the Constitution upon Con grass are those to lay and collect taxes duties and excises to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States to borrow money on sheared of tho United States to regulate com Coerce with foreign nations and amoug the several States and with the Indian tribes to coin monev and regulate tbe valne thereof to establish post offices and post roads to declare war to raise and support armlet to provide an maintain a navy to make all laws which shall be necessary and pro for carrying Into execution the powers granted to Congress and all other power vested by the Constitution In governmcntof the United Statescr any department orofliccr thereof The grant of thesis powers involves f necessity this meansto malt tb j effective The power to declare war for instance carries with it all of the incidental powers necessary to the prosecution of war So with that to regulate commerce and with the other enumerated powers It would have been impossible to declare in detail how the enumerated powers should be exercised or what means necessary and conducive to the end should be employed No human mind could an ticipate and no human language could provide for all tbe emergencies which might in the course of events arise toThe purposes are declared the ex press grants are made but the especial means or choice of means conducive to the accomplishment of the purpose are left tube provided for as the occa sion arises with power in the courts to abusedThe express power conferred by the Constitution created anationa fed rated nationality sovereign within its sphere It would follow that tills creation if it has existence which it proAserve tbat existence by all necessary means of self defense This question was a very pertinent one a few years ago Happily it no longer disturbs tbe country and the integrity and life of the nation are preserved for the bless fog of this and the generations which are to follow Mr Story says of the incidental powers of tbe Constitution First there must be a primary pow er expressly conferred by the Constitu tion Second the measure or question must be a convenient and proper means of carrying into execution the primary power In speaking of the clause lito make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying Into execution the foregoing powers and all other powers vested by this Constitution in the gov ernment of the United States or any department oflicer thereof he says The plain import of the clause is that Congress shall have all the Incidental and instrumental powers nee essary and proper to carry into execu tion all the express powers It aelthtr enlarges any power specifically grants ed nor Is it a grant of any new powers to Congress but it is merely a declara tionfoe the removal ofalluncertainty that the means of carrying turn execu tion those otherwise granted are cluded in tbe grant The advocates of a strict construction of the Constitu lion would limit the meaning of the words necessary and proper to what is absolutely and indispensibly necessa ry Those whoarc more liberal in whatnis needful requisite incidental use ful or conducive to and this is the view which has prevailed in the admin istration of the government Lettheendbe legitimate let it be within the scope of the Constitution and all andswhich are not prohibited but are con slsleut with the letter and spirit of tbe instrument are constitutional Even without the above clause the incidental powers would follow the press grant as a necessary means for their dui execution but apparently out of abundant caution it was ad ded to prevent amisconstruction CONTINUED NEXT WEEK l t Eepublicius prated a great deal dur tog the recent campaign about non partisan courts and nonpartisan judges and yet they are the very ones that injected the political question into matters judicial When Caleb Powers oneof the Goebel conspirators was arraigned his attorneys asked Judge Caotrill to vacate the bench be cause he was not of tee

and C A Hardin for Statos attorney The g matter of settlement will probably be turned over to the courts The split in the Democratic Convention a t Danville will strengthen the call for a primary To our mind it is not a convention that makes splits and disruptions but an excited canvass A split invariably follows a war in the open field It would probably be so with a primary At any rate where contestants present their claims on a high planestear clear of personal attacks a convention will give entire satisfaction and likewise where heated campaigners embelished with malignant charg es against contestants in a prima ry would probably result in an un- satisfactoryv settlement We are to have a primary and if the pre dictions of its suppcrters come to pass then indeed will the Demo cratic party be blessed War between Venezula and the Combined powers of England and Germany seems iminent The difference may be adjusted by are r bitration but in the judgment of those well acquainted with the a trouble it is not expected In the event of a declaration of war it will put the United States into it and a lively skirmish will follow England has courted the good will of our govornment for the last few years but the Monroe doctrine says keep hands off and armies out of American governments It would be a great blessing to have a peaceful settlement and a great destruction should such powers go to war It would not be an Amer icanSpanish skirmish or an En a glish Boer tragedy but strong power against strong power In all our troubles American skill and courage have triumphed and we do not fear American retreat or surrender should war arise between the great powers of Europe and this center1- CILBURSM1THS COLLEGE Teachers Clerks and Farmer boys should pursue the Business

by him and the other cases were filed away to be reinstated and tried when he again violates the local option law Judge Murrell and County At torney Garnett have for some time been holding courts of inquiry and vestigating the violators of the local option laws and they have found it to be more effective than waiting for the Grand Jury This is the proper course to pursue and the actions of these

let the games come regular Should a league be formed players would take more Interest and the meets would be more exciting We hope the Captain of Columbia club will get in correspondence with the clubs of the other towns named and that a circuit will be agreed upon For the lack of bridges the mails arc irregular and part of our county has been shut out for several days It will be a great convenience when travel will not be hindered by raging streams when the malls can be re ceived in rainy as well as in dry seasons Slowly but surely we are headed for such Improvements and every bridge

give away either the one or the otlier lie can if he chooses and he dues as a matter of fact furnish a great deal of space rent free But it does not follow that he ought to be expect ed to do so It lught to be recog nized as a contribution exactly as would be the giving away of sugar or coffee by the grocer But strange to say it is nut looked upon in that lightut all j and yet every body knows that the exist once of a newspaper depends upon the rent of its space and the axle of the paper just the same as a merchants success depends on selling his goods instead uf giving them awayEx Fight VW

DOCTRINE Once more the question arises as to how the Monroe doctrine is related to such eases as those now pending be tween Venezuela and the two great European powers Great Britain and GermanyA newspaper of character suggests that those powers should ap peal to that doctrine in all the broad cess that it might be claimed to im port i d1hold the United States government responsible for trouble within Its sipbere of influence In other words the London newspapers wculd have England and Germany say to Un cle Sam1I0ne of your South American wards refused to pay her bills and we wish you to hand over the cash due from her to us and make your own settlement with her afterwards That Is quite a cute proposal The more we look at it the more we can appreciate how it strikes the average British intellect as really original and plausible But It is to laugh when mentioned on this side of the water Uncle Sam has never assumed a suzer ains guardenship of the South American republics nor ever thought of writing his big bonanza name across the back of their I O Us Written out In plain United States language the Monroe doctrine means that no European power must acquire territory or sovereignty over people on this western hemisphere low any body can misunderstand that declaration is the only puzzle in the case It ought nut to take England aud Germany a pair of minutes to know ell their rights under the Monroe doctrine They may go ahead and collect their debts by such means as are open to nations short of seizure of the lands and people in fee simple As the Almighty said to Satan concerning Job they may afflict Venezuela all they please but they must not touch her life And that life is in the integ rity of her autonomy her body and her political independence England and Germany dealt with Venezuela with thelreyesopen taking creditors chances and knowing all the timelthat they would not be permitted to appropriate her territory and claim dominion of her people So that there is no question that can be raised be tween them and the United States garding the application of the Monroe doctrine It is already applied and they will do well not to Ignore IIAt lanta Constitution AN EDITORS DAUGHTER Dead Yes it must be so because upon the way my friends approach with tender vouch and word and out in the beautiful cemetery Is a new made mound covered deep with flowers the offerings of hearts wherein effect ion for my Martha did abide And yet sometimes I cannot force belief that she is dead because I see her in the faces of her little mates who come to offer sympathy sincere and when I try so hard to turn my tired brain to business wants and needs her angel face appears upon the writingpad to win a fathers eye away from work that it may rest upon the featuresof his child And often in the night hours comes a call for papa In the voice I know so well and so real are its tones that I give answer to the call and wait expectant for her closer coming And when she comest sweetest boon to troubled heartn he bears no mark or trace of pain her dear face but always a smile Of unspeakable peaceA speaking smile whose beauty tells us tnd that our loved ones place iu ParrSe Is as sate is was her earthplace In her fathers heart And so I nr ust not and i do not mourn for my dead as for a love and life gone ftravray forever because uy soul seDFAj telliJ

in Paradise look down upon this sorrowing soul whose surest hope of heaven is based upon the goodness of his God in giving him to have and to hold upon the earth for just a little a Christlike child
