ITY OF THE FEDERAL CON STITUTION AN INTERESTING DOCUHENT The following is the Four Hundred Dollar prize essay written by Proto T A Baker while at Columbian Univer sity Washington D C June 1902 CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK The elasticity of the Constitution resides largely in the incidental or im plied powers and ibis in reference to their exercise that most of our consti controversies have arisen A liberal construction has been given of the grants of power to the genera government and this in view of our history seems to have been necessary Otherwise we could never have meta and adapted ourselves to the varying conditions of our growing civilization ner could we have accomplished the purpose of the Constitution to form- a more perfect union to establish jus tics insure domestic tranquility pro ide for the common defense promote the general welfare and secure the blesslDgsotli6erty In reaching these results through the exercise of the powers of government under the grants given to it by the people w fasr construction and for discretion upo the part of the agencies employed for the purpose This elasticity does not however involve an unlimited right of construction nor a stretching ofipower beyond legitimate bounds e have thus far In our history solved all constitutional questions that have arisen but it does not follow that it is Procrustean like able to fit conceivable case that may occur in th future Should an emergency ever arise however when this cannot be done it provides a manner by which can be amended without a resort t revolutional measures Our history abounds in controversies involving questions of Constitutional construction growing out of the plied powers of government Happily for our country although heated discussions have often occurred in deal og with the questions that have arisen and in fixing the limits of power wise and just conclusions have most generally been reached without doing violence to the letter or splrltuf the organic law There is no express grant of a power to Congress to exact an embargo law yet as early as 1807 such a law was placed upon the Statute books and was enforced by the proclamations o more than one of our presidents It was bitterly denounced as unconstitutional by the people of the New En gland States where it worked great Websterhthousands to beggary JChe courts however upon a case presented declared it constitutional under thelpow er of Congress to regulate commerce It was insisted that as it was unlim ited as to time it did not regulatebut destroyed commerce ana therefore was an unwarranted exercise of power by Military and Naval schools wnere our young men are educated and trained for soldiers and sailors at government expense These institutions have bees fostered and sustained withI out question by all tie administra tions although there Isno express mention of them in the Constitution But the power to declare war to raise 1and support armies to provide and maintain a navy would involve the proper training of men to command our soldiers and man our vessels President Washington in one of his State papers suggested if be did no recommend national aid to the cause of general education The subjett of government aid to works of internal improvements cre daythFese while President prepared a very elaborate paper against the exercise of the pow er by the government It is now however generally recognized as one offor the incidental powers and may be undertaken as an incident to the pow to regulate commerce ugder which is embraced navigation to lay and cone taxes to establish post offices and post roads to make Wart as It mite be condu 4 clue to the particular cud tube accom pUshed It exercises this right in clearing iv ers of obstructions improvingharbors erecting forts light houses piers building custom houses etc In mod ern day itis not whether it shall be done but who shall get the benefit of It and it may be In the scramble the boundary line between national and local purposes is sometimes crossed or forgotten by a Representative who is much In love with his constituency an- is a mood for dalliance Indeed this incidental power in aid of so many express grants and in con nection with that to lay and collect taxes duties import and excises to pay the debts and provide for the com mon defense and general welfare of the United States opens a broad field for legislative discretion as can be seen by the perusal of a modern Congressional appropriation bill Its study will also In some small degree enable one to comprehend the length and breadth nd depth of the meaning of the words common defense and general wel fareTariff laws have been the source of much controversy and have led to wide divergence of opinion among public men Parties have divided upon them since the early days of the govern Constitution has given to Con gress the right of raising revenue and exeigencies will require How far it can questlon n raised by South Carolina in its cele brated ordinance declaring certain laws of the United States for the posing 4 of duties and imports on the Importation of foreign commodities unconstitutional and null and void Although the right of nullification was strenuously claimed at that time by men of great ability yet we suppose willesustain that view The arguments advanced by Mr SenatoGr itohis proclamation to the nulllfiers of South Carolina arc so convincing in their logic as to leave no roomfor doubt of the supremacy of the laws of the United States enacted in pursu ance of the Constitution and that the States are not the tribunals to judge whether or not a law is constitutional However men may have differed the views they expressed are now very generally accepted and our laws are framed accordingly so that at the present time the importance of tariff duties involves more questions of poll cy than of constitutional rights The reciprocity feature of this class of legislation growing more and more removfe the differences even of policy which have heretofore existed while It may not in any degree lessen the legislative discretion over the whole subject Our commerce has grown to such proportion its arms extended in s many directions are so far reaching and employ so many instrumentalities that it Is difficult if not impossible to limit the discretion as to means for its regulation Thespirltof discovery and invention are constantly introducing new age clesand appliances tothose already a work So vast andj complicated are the interests involved that in recent years Congress has establlshedan In ter State Commerce Commission to consider and adjust matters that ma be brougbtbefore It and a Department of Commerce seems to be regarded as a necessity of our near future The power to regulate commerce compr- trends navigation and intercourse for sign and domestic and all of the In strumentalities necessary and useful for the purpose and it is sometimes exercised for revenue foi prohibition etther directly or incidentally to encour age andfoster domestic mancfactur- and labor Although the Louisana Purchase as made by President Jefferson he ex pressed doubts as to its constitution ality but the interests involved were too vltaland urgent for delay so he suggested that It should be passed over softly and an amendment secured future convenience In a note Story on the Constitution it is said erPresident Jefferson himself under whose auspices the treaty was mid wdta a n amendment of the Constitution to jus tify tt Hd accordingly urged his IL friends strenuously to that course At the same time he added that it will be desirable for Congress to do what is necessary in silence whatever Con gresashallthink necessary todo should be done with as little debate as possi ble particularly as far as respects the constitutional question I confess then I think it Important in the present case to set an example against broad construction by appealing for new powers to the people It haves er our friends shall think differently I shall acquiesce with satisfaction thedcon- struction when it shall produce evil effects1 No amendment was secured and in view of our subsequent history none was needed The right followed as an incidentof the powers to declare war and make treaties Since that time we have acquired Florida Texas Alas ka and other territories and islands in all embracing an area of 2500000 square miles or more and it Is belies ed without any violence to the Con stitution That the national government pos sesses sovereign jurisdiction over its territory whether acquired by cession treaty or conquest cannot be ques tioned The power to make war In 701ves the rlghj of conquest and of control of conquered possessions Ill s an incident of national sovereignty no matter how the acquisition may be made As was said by Chief Justice Marshall in 1 Peters- TheConstitution confers absolutely on the government of the Union the power of making war and of making treaties consequently the government possesses the power of acquiring terri ritory either by conquest or by pur chaseQuestions affecting our relations to the newly acquired possessions Porto RIcoand the Philippine Islands have already engaged the attention of theSupreme Court and are engaging the attention of Congress and whether r there may be differences of opinion as to the manner of governing them there is none as to the fact that they are under our control and as to the right of the government under the treaty with Spain to contro them Another subject which produced stormy debates and violent contentions was the United States Bank The administration of President Jackson was sulphurous bye reason of It The Supreme Court sustained the constitu tionality of the act creating the bank President Jackson vetoed a bill passed by Congress to extend its charter and J his messageto Congress of July 10 1832 said among other things It Is maintained by the advocates of the Bank that its constitutionality in all its features ought to be consider ed as settled by precedent and by the decision of tbu Supreme Court To this conclusion r cannot assent More precedent is a dangerous source of au thorny and should not be regarded as deciding questions of constitutional power except when the acquiescence of the people and the States can be considered as well settled It the opinion of the Supreme Court actoauthorities of the Government The Congress the Executive and the Court must each for Itself be guided by its own opinion of the Constitution Each public officer who takes an oath to support the Constitution swears that ho wtllsupporGitasheunderstandsit andnot as it Is understood by others otf o the President to decide upon the con stitutionality of any bill or resolution which may be presented to them for passage or approval as it is of the Su bepopinion of the Judge has no mote au thority over Congressman the Opinion of Congress has over the Judges and rideeauthority of the Supreme Court must not there fore be permitted to control the Con grass or the Executive when acting in their legislative capacities but to have

requirements o f the Louisville Conference have been met and the contract between the Educational Board and the people of this section closed both sides feeling victorious Hereto fora we have called attention to the worth of this school to its posibilities and probabilities Ii is useless now to farther indulge in forecasting its future to point out its beneficent effects on our community to call attention to its financial worth to Adair county or to show its far reaching influ ence throughout Southern Ken tucky Time alone will tell the tale and prove our predictions true or committee of this town selected by the Educational Board of the Louisville Conference has worked faithfully and success fully and through its efforts the school is ours The people of this town appreciate the importance of this enterprise for they have re sponded cheerfully with liberal contribution We do not mean that every party has done his duty in this matter but that the major ity of the people for it is a la mentable fact that we have some 2citizens who though amply able have with held their support and treated the importance of securing the school as of no worth to the town The spirit of enterprise has manifested itsself to a marked degree with our people and the se curing of this valuablemstitution is the result of their liberality The soliciting committee appre ciates the liberal contributions re ceived from the friends of educa tion from those who desire to ad vance the public good and to build up our town and county The Educational Board selected and bought from C S Harris the Arbor Vitae Hill the most com it manding point in the town for 1500 They get 8 or 9 acres which is ample territory for all the buildings and play grounds needed Wo feel certain that when that hill is adorned with a beautiful building when the school begins to show its worth and influence in this town and country that every one who has a contributed will feel proud to know that he is a party to its existence

vigorous as when the wise men journeyed east to see the new born babe in the manger and to give gifts and worship him From that memorable day down to the present all ohrisendom fol lowers and believers in Christ revere the day on which our Savior was born And while the wise men directed by God gave gifts an expression of their appreciation and love for the gift of God to fallen man yet they set an example that has descended to us and all through the ages past Christmas has been a great daya day when friend remembers frienda day when some gift goes out either in word deed or material things of earth It is a day of rejoicing a day of rest a day of praise The birthday of our Redeemer the greatest day in all the year It marks an event common to hu manity from the king to the peas ant from the rich and haughty to the poor and humble embracing entire humanity To him who celebrates the annual return of an eventful day because of the event there is no day in all the year so precious as Christmas We celebrate the 4th of July because it was the birth day of our nation Few of any American people are blind to the importance of keeping the memories of July 1796 fresh in the minds of our people Its celebra tion keeps the fire of liberty burn ing j it serves as an inspiration to keep the American a true American To ns it is a great day but does not reach out to other lands and to other people Christmas covers the globe It is the day eventful for allslid well and theIits value may be a trills but bet ter far to remember the poor and unfortunate with something that will make them feel that all have part in the blessings and joys of this day Too often the little child of poor parents suffer untold agonies because of sneer neglect of those who though willing to give are not mindful of the conditions that surround others Too apt are we to keep charity from stray ing from its birthplace We are proue to lavish our gifts on those most dear to heap pleasure upon pleasure on the favorites of our Christmas gift in Bethle hem was not confined to that city to those people only but toll humanity in all ages The little child should know as well as dayhadBethlehem 1002 yaars ago Our good wishes go out to all humanity and our udvice is to observe this day discreetly putting away all dendencies o f rowdyism lien gifts give to the poor and give where the hand of wealth has not lavished earthly blessings TA all we wishUa merry Christmas aud It happy now years Mr John F Neat was nominated last Monday by the Republican Committee of this county for Cir cuit Court Clerk

opinion A new trial is ordered Mr R C Whayne who was a prominent business man of LouIs- ville was found dead near his res idence last week He had gone out to hunt game and the theory most generally advanced is that he accidentally shot himself in going through a gap in a fence He carried 840000 life insurance and with accrued interest over 400000 will go to his estate W G Hunter was tried before the Guatemala court last week He stated that Fitzgerald attack ed him striking him under the eye and slapping his pistol in his face before he shot It is evident ly a case of self defense Dr Hunter writes that five men were in a conspiracy to murder his son and that he would not return to the United States until they were all landed in the penitentiary The U S Civil Service Commis sion reports

OUR SCHOOLS The fact of the establishment of the Lindsay Wilson training school at this point fixes the status of Columbia as the educational center for this section of the Green River country With two institutions in our midst devoted to the work of higher educa tion we can expect a decided impetu- along s educational lines not only i Adair county but In all of the counties adjacent to us and we ought to draw no inconsiderable support from more distant points We already have one Institution The Columbia M F High School which has done and is now doing excellent work of a high order and gives promise of even better things in the future Two years ago one of the boards of the Presbyterian church came to the aid of this institution and endowed it in the sum of five hundred dollars per year equivalent to a permanent en dowment of ten thousand dollars and it is now just getting in working order under this arrangement This endow ment gives strength and an element- of stability to the school which it has long needed and which insures for it a successful futuremore successful than it hasenjoyed in the past With the stimulus of this aid we can expect of it tbe highest and bestseryice and we feel assured under its present man agement that it is doing a great work With it and the Lindsay Wilson training school in our midst wean expect the best results for the children and youth and all of this means greater prosperity for Columbia and Adair county for schools cannot exist without adding much to the material prosperity of the community fn which they are located The time has come when Adair and adjoining counties should seek to buildup their localinstitutions With these schools in reach we should be self ucating in the sense that we educate at home To do this is to make and save money and at the same time to give prestige and character to the country in which we live We trust in this matter it will be more than a pride of countya pride of the section to the counties of this part of the State We think we can see that al ready there is a growing disposition to favor home schools when good advantages are offered as good as can be se cured at other places The patronage of the Columbia M F High School is better than it has been for years and indications point to a large increase after the holidays This is as itshould be It speaks well for our peoplefor the cause of education and more especially for those who are In charge of the school LEE TURPEN DEAD The subject of this notice was a vie tim of consumption and Wednesday the 17th of this month near the noon hour

number of years in investigations looking to the improvement of our domestic tobaccos has recognized for som time certain desirable qualities in tobacco grown in Texas apparently occurring only in occasional leaves Soil survey parties have been investigating in Eastern Texas and now are able to state confidently that they have located the soil and have found the char acter of leaf posessing these do sired qualities under conditions which indicate that it can be pro I duced in large quantities of uni form high grade Only a small amount of this leaf has been grown this year which could be fermented Samples have been submitted to leaf dealers and brokers in New York and Phila delphia They say it is a Cuban leaf with the characteristic aroma of the Cuban product The department will send two survey parties to Texas the first of Jan uary to prosecute the survey of this soil and will enlarge the party of tobacco experts so that fifteen or twenty acres of tobacco shall be grown under Government super vision thus producing a sufficient quantity to be handled on a com mercial scale This will be sub mitted to the leaf dealers and manufacturers for opinion of the commercial value of the crop before any encouragement is given to Texas growersIVERDICT FOR 100000 What is said to be the largest verdict ever awarded in the courts of the United States or England in a damage suit for causing death Ior disability was returned by a ry in the New York Supreme Courtj last week when it gave Mrs Jennie Leys widow of William LeysI manager of B Altman Co aj verdict for 100000 The verdict was against the New York Central for death of Mr Leys in the Park Avenue tunnel accident last Janj uary The only other verdict ap proaching this one for causing theI death of the victim of an accident was in England where damages ofI 14000 were awarded to the heirs of Dr Phillips In an action for injuries a western jury some years ago awarded the victim 75000 In the suit the New York Central practically put in no defense the only question being as to theI amount of damages The usual motion for a stay of execution was granted and the case may be ap pealed The verdicts against the New York Central on account of this collision now amount to 407 000 but most of the suits have been appealed Mr Leys at the time of his deathwas in receipt of a salary of 25000 a year from Altman Co and his total income exceeded 80 000 per year Mrs Leys testified that her husband spent 11000 a year for tho maintenance of their home in New Rochelle and sent to 5000 a year to one of their sous for managing
