following Is the Four Hundred Dollar prize essay written by Prof T A Baker while at Columbian Univer sity Washington D C June 1902 CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK The old United States bank went out of existence and it seemed that its extinguishment was a quietus to the whole system of national banks State banks succeeded wildcat methods prevailed n o uniformity nothing stable or certain currency bad one value at one place and another value elsewhere it was good today and worthless tomorrow the war came The whole system was changed In 1863 the national system was revived not as it was before with one general bank but by a general law authorizing the establishment of banks anywhere upon certain prescribed conditions The followers of Old Hickory protested but protested in vain Established first in the cities banks spread rapidly to the villages and towns of the country and as they increased number they grew in public favor until now no man can be found who is not pleased to own the stock or finger the bills which they issue Our banking system has been an olution and a revolution Closely allied to this subject is another to which we will merely reterI vlzthe legal tender feature of a part of the paper money issued by the gov ernment The Supreme Court by a majority first decided against the con stitutionality of so much Gf the act asI made it a legal tender butsubsequent ly reversed themselves and decided the act constitutional this decision alsoI a divided court but the legal ten er principle now seem finally settled But is it true as stated by President Jackson that the decisions of the Su preme Court have only such influence as the force of their reasoning may de It it is there is no check on ongress and its acts or of as such binding force as the provisions of the ConstitutionThe section of article 3 of the Constitution reads as follows The judicial power shall extend to cases in law and equity arising un er the Constitution the laws of the United States and treaties made or which shall be made under their au thorny to all cases affecting ambassa dors other public officers and consuls to all cases of admiralty or maritime jurisdiction to controversies to which the United States shall be a party to controversies between two or 1L0reI States between a State and citizens of another State between citizens of dif fent States between citizens of the same State claiming lands under grants of different States and between State or the citizens thereof and foreign States citizens or subjects The judicial power by the first see tiou is vested in one Supreme Court and in such interior Courts as the Con gress may from time to time ordain and establish and in article 6j This Constitution and the laws otJtbe United States which shall be in pursuance thereof shill be the suC preme law of the land It follows necessarily that laws not made in pursuance the Constitution are not obligatory But what tribunal shall decide as to constitutionality of the laws of Congress Tbe Supreme Court has been established for this purposeIMr Jefferson and others of his day were apprehensive that undue power was conferred upon the federal Judiciary and that by gradual encroach ment it would undermine and destroy tbe rights of tbe people ana the States but these fears have in the practical workings of the government proven entirely unfounded So far in our his tory the supreme Court has been a force cf conservatism the surest and best protection of liberty and lawl Holding neither the purse nor the sword having no power to initiate measures acting only upon questions as they are presented by causes brought before it by others trained in the study of the aw and in respect for ItIremoved by the tenure of office from the excitement and passion of party politics it is fortunately situated and qualified for the calm and iapartia J discharge of the high and delicate du ties which are imposed upon it and it has uniformly met Its great responsi bilities in such manner as to win the confidence of all classes of the people As DeTpcqaevlile said of the Supreme Court A more imposing judicial power was never constituted by any people It is placed at the head of all known tribunals both by the na ture of its rights and the class of jus ticable parties which it controls Such a tribunal was unknown to the Confederation It was a creation of the profound wisdom of the authors of the Constitution and wlthont it as we can see now our federal system would have been as a rope of sand Questions of great import have been brought before it and decided by it questionsInvolving tbe powers of the general government and the reserved rights of the States questions between different States questions between in dlviduaU and States and between dividuals but who at this day and time shares in the fears expressed by Mr Jefferson when he said in a letter to Mr Thomas Ritchie in 1820 But It IS not from this branch of government Congress we have most tofear Taxes and short elections will keep them right The Judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly work ing underground to undermine the foundations of our Confederated tab ricA Judiciary independent of a kingor executive alone is a good thing but independent of the will of the nation is a solecism at least in a republican Jefferson wasand he had but few equals in the extent of his wisdom his fears in regard to this tribunal were not well founded and especially as to the ruling of the great Judge Chief Justice Marshall It cannot be said in truth that our Supreme Court is independent tbe will of the nation or that it has everI attempted to act in disregard of tbatI will It has taken the supreme law as its guide and tbe test by which tbe acts of all the departments of government are to be tried its own jurisdiction as welland wisely fearlessly and patriotically it has met Its great responsibilities As said by Judge Dillon in one of the Yale lectures If tbe Supreme Court during tbe period of active national development covered by the long official career of Chief Justice Marshall had put a narrow and inelastic construction upon tbe federal Constitution so that it could not have expanded with tbe growth and answered the necessities of a great people It would have been calamitous to an extent no words can portray and no imagination can conceive His views lelt it possible for the national growth to take place in accordance with the national process jof already been made in a general way of some of the leading questions which agitated the public mind during the early history of the government and upon which tbe Court was called to decide and also of tbe principle of construction by which they were guided It cannot be claimed that the rules of construction by which they were settled are arbitrary or unreasonable They are the rules which govern IDtheI interpretation of other instruments and arc founded on reason and are very clearly stated by Chief Justice Marshall in a few words in tbe case of Ogden vs Saunders12 Wheaton To say that the intention of the instrument must prevail that the in tention must be collected from Its worth that its words are to be understood In that sense In which they are generally used by those for whom the instrument was intended that Its pro visions are to be neither extended to ob ects

Saturday Journal and after nearly starving caught sight of a passing fox and implored the stranger to help him outI am too small to aid you said the fox but I will give you some advice Only a few rods away there Is a big strong elephant Call to him and het will get you out in a jiffo After tbe fox had gone the donkey reasoned I am very weak from want of nourishment Every move 1 make is just so much additional loss of strength If I raise my voice to call the elephant I shall be weaker yeiI No I will not waste ray substance that way It is the duty of the elephant to come without calling So the donkey settled himself back and eventually starved to death Long afterward the fox on passing the hole saw within a skeleton and remarked It it be that souls of animals are transmigrated into men that

least one occasion I had snakes in my boots said the man with the red nose to a New Orleans TimesDemocrat reporter and it was no wild delirious fancy either The snakes were genuine They were very much alive could crawl did crawl and they had eyes and fangs and forked tongues and nil the other things which go with a well made and complete member of the reptilian species I had gone out on a fishing tripwith some friends up in Arkansas and we were quartered in a tent on one of the best lakes in the southeastern section of the state Iii was during the hot season I never saw as many snakes in all my life as we found around that lake andl they were of all sizes shapes and colors The heat was so intense it was during a severe drouth of 1881 that all the snakes in that section gatheredaround thelake in an effort no doubt to keep cool They would slip down to the waters edge burrow in the mud and cut other curious ca pers because of the prevailing drouth1 Late in the evening they would take a whirl at swimming wriggling out into the lake for some distance and then pull back to the shore again I mention these facts merely to show that snakes were plentiful in that sec tion The heat had made them des perate but we never anticipated any trouble from this source We pitched our tent at the head of the lake and were inclined to gloat somewhatover the splendid location we had secured and the coziness of our surroundings generally Of course wo had the usual quantity of stimulating thing which belong to a firstclass fishing outfit and to tell the truth about the matter I had been pulling away at the jug and popping beer bottles until I was just a little shaky After we had been out about a week I began to see things that a man under that snakes were plentiful in that sec I was just in this condition one morn ing when I rolled out of my cot to begin the days sport The sun had been up for some time My boots were standing beside the cot where I had put them the night before In throwing my legs over the side of the cot I knocked both boots over You can guess how I felt when two or three snakes wriggled out of my boots I simply went up in the air My nerves were in no condition to be tampered with I couldnt get out of the cot and I couldnt stay in it I simply felt like melting into thin air One of my friends wit nessed the whole thing although I did not know it at the time I was ashamed to say anything about the snakes until he brought the question up Finally he said somethingabout the snakes that had spent the night in my boots and Ill swear to you 1 never felt better in my life for up to that time I was very much in doubt about the genuineness of the vision I was glad to know that the snakes were real live snakes A MISERS EXPERIENCE An Attempt at Economy That Turned Out Somewhat Disastrously There is muchamusementinDres den parliamentary circles says the London Express over a little joke which was played on one of the old est members The gentleman in question although somewhat miser ly is very popular Recently he in jured his finger and not caring to consult his own doctor sought the advice of a brothermember anM D who told him what to do On thefol lowing day however the old gen tleman received a bill for ten shil lings from the doctor for medical at tendance In his perplexity he con fided in another colleague a lawyer this time who pointed out his lia bility and advised him to pad the billThe aged members astonishment can best be imagined when he received later the lawyers claim for ten shillings for advice given He indignantly complained to a third member of this unbrotherly treat ment but this third gentleman en tering into the joke brought the matter before the committee which decides personal differences of the members Here the case turned against the accuser and he was im peached for refusing to acknowl edge justified claims and gravely sentenced tobuy a case of cham pagne The expensive finger isno1f

She was quite an old lady Miss Sue Baker one of Columbia popular young ladies entertained number of young friends at dinner last Saturday It was a merry assembly but the interesting feature was th bountiful dinner which was very much enjoyed The Misses Eubank entertained Rev S A McKay Miss Gertrude Gradyand Mr WT Price Friday at dinner Be fore the meal hour and after delightful music was rendered in the parlors The dinner was verv much enjoyed by the invited guests We have been informed that Mr J A Dulworth sold his Green river farm last week to his brother Mr William Dulworth and that he purchased the Christie Farm on Caney Fork Green county We understand tbat the consideration in the last named transaction was 810 000 There was less drunkenness In the town of Columbia Christmas day than for several years in the past It is said that not a half dozen persons were seen upon the streets under the fluence of liquor We have a Young Peoples Christian Association Intown and also a Police Court Mrs C C Flowers and her children this city and a daughter of Mr W R Myers were poisoned Sunday while at dinner Oyster soup was served but it had been made in a brass kettleI and it is supposed that the poison was thus conveyed All the patients arc recovering Mr T C Davidson the present City Judge is doing the right thing and isI indorsed by all good citizens Last week he fined a number of parties fori violating the city ordinances and he takes them all alike It can not bej said that he causes the arrest of coun try boys alone Out of about twelve fifteen arrests last

Ky and Miss Gertrude Grady of this city It was a magnificent dinner six courses being served in a manner to make the occas ion exceedingly delightful to the hon ored epicureans After dinner the re mainder of the day was happily spent in listening to charming music and in social converse Take the young people of Columbia as a whole and a better behaved set cannot be found in any town in Ken tucky However there are a few who could improve upon their conduct while attending religious services It is very impolite to sit in church and talk while a sermon is being deliver ed You may not want to hear It but there are others who do Quit the bad habit and you speak a good word for the father and mother who reared you Again we call attention to the fact tbat the second term of the M F High School begins January the 6th next Monday If you intend entering school come in and be here the first day Take an even start and lead the procession Every thing indicates the liveliest session that this school has bad for many years Dont delay dont quibble about a little expense In educating yourself Knowledge cannot be destroyed It is burglar proof No pickpocket can reach It no shrewd manipulator can touch It It is a capital that abides forever Several months ago it will be remem bered that Mr Eugene Rice bought the farm on the old Springfield five miles from Columbia known the Betsy Miller property tar 85000 At the time the trade was made many thought it was a long price and that Mr Rice had made a mistake that he had paid too much but the purchaser has satisfied the public that he knew his business A short time after buy ing the farm he made a deal with the Campbellsville Lumber Company and at once put a number of hands to cut ting logs He now has enough yarded to make one million feet of lumber which will bring in more than a suffi dent sum to pay for the farm Eld Z T Williams who has been pastor of the Christian Church this hits work last He been a farthfulpastorandunderhiapreach ing quite a large number have been added to the Church At the close of his sermon in the forenoon he present ed all he young converts with a hand tome Testament He also

for his darling babe which had only been spared to them eight months to light their now sad home With torn and bleeding hearts they say nothing more than Lord thy will and not ours be done Remember dear father and mother that while tbose strong earthly ties must be severed here and the soil of Texas makes the mound in the Pilot Point cemetery over the one gone and beneath the sod of loved Adair county Ky sleep two others we know that Heaven Is that many ties stronger And while we know our loved ones gone can not come to us we can go them where the broken links will be reunited and there will

the courthouse can not be used by the Police Judge in holding his courts It is true that the courthouse is the property of the county and not the town but the town is in the county and many cases that come up in this court would relieve the county from the expense of trial and place it on th town where It justly belongs If th town foots Ita bills of expense we can not see aay impropriety In holding i courts in the courthouse The trot is that the town is not able to build a a City Hall and to grant the Police Judge the courtesy of holding his in the county court room would not meet with disfavor from any part of the county Those who violate the town laws are now tried in some oijIco room wholly inadequate for the con venience and comfort of all We turst that the Importance extending the above courtesy to this town will be reconsidered by those who have It within their power to give br with BDlfl This office is in receipt of an anony conkremDtcertain residents of this town The anonymous writer advises us to mention the names of certain parties their visitors when they come when they go and what they do and notifies us theeworth of our letter was mailed at the postoffice in this town and the hand writing is so fromrswhom itcame shows the of the writer from start to finish It portrays an envious sentiment clothed In Ironical language We answer as follows The News has not made any complimentary mention of anyone that it desires to retract It has not played into the favor of any family but made such mention of people and acts as it deemed of interest to our readers or justly due the parties We cannot please everybody We do not trywe mean to do our duty as we see it The anonymous writer may be suffering from melancholy duo to the fact that we have failed to give him or her a personal notice when it was probably due but overlooked or no information received to warrant us in so doing If so we hereby notify the party aggrieved to send in a photo and we will do the rest Further any party who desires a change in the policyof our paper should have the courage to present the griev ance and offer the remedy in an open manly way and not hide behind the cowardly and contemptible method of an anonymous letter If the personal columnof this paper Is so objectionable us this sainted sage indicates then this trouble can be removed by a squaring of accounts The writer couched hind a handwriting that covers iden tity can find a true picture of himself in Uriah Heap by reading David Copperfield In the Adair county News of last week there is an essay written by Tyler A Baker of Columbia on The Elas ticity of The Federal Constitution a very able document indeed for one so young for which he received the prize of 8400 It was delivered last June while a student at Columbian Univer sity Washington D C and although there were a number of contestants He received the prize by the unani mous vote of the Judges Mr Baker is a nephew of Mrs Lou Schooling and of Mrs J B Carlisle of this city Lebanon Enterprise To the people of all our neighboring counties the News extends its best wishes for a prosperous New Year We are truly thankful for the patron age we have received from you and it is our intention to make the News more mterestidg in the future than it has ever been in the past Everything that is worth writing we will endeavor to publish Therefore when pou have a news item of local interest send it in If our correspondents are out of statlonery they should notify us Mr T E Green who has been the circuit Court Clerk of Taylor county for a number of years left Campbells ville last week in company with his wife for Louisville having accepted a position in that city It is our under standing that he will keep a set of books for the Louisville d Nashville Railroad Company He is a very effiI cleat gentleman and will be a valuable acquisition to the clerical force of that immense corporation It is dangerous and radically wrong for persons to undertake to violate a law simply because that law has not herefore been enforced It matters not how small a measure seems if it has been created a law be who observes it Is walking in the right direction Who is it that condemns law Ask yourself the question Mr Porter A Murrell son of Mr S H Murrell who lives in the Clear Spring neighborhood was married to Miss Hilda Bell daughter of Mr John

the proper one The practice of all standing in the Court room as the justice enters has bbtained locally a few It is understood that themovemntwas inaugurated by Mr Tracy L Jeffords when he was assistant United States attorney for tho District of Colum bia under Mr Arthur A Birney Mr Jeffords made ita rule to risefrom his chair in court when the justice ap peared and soon the other attorneys began to follow suit Tho custom is now general The practice is similar to that pre railing in the supreme court of the United States and is considered a dignified expression of courtesy and respect In the courts throughout the country for the most part the sheriffor other official simply an nounces that court is open AtMarls boro it is stated the judge opens court by rapping on his desk with a gavel and calling for order The justices of the United States supreme court and of some of the courts of New York wear black gowns while on the bench The adoption of such a costume by the justices of the supreme court of the District of Columbia has been suggested and it is said that several of tho members of the court are in favor of the inno rationAs court criers the item of ap propriation to pay such officials was cut out of the bill by one house of congress several years ago a backwoods representative arguing that a court crier was a luxury not to be tolerated by his vote The item was restored however in conference and the criers survive TRIED TO PROVE ASSAULT Colored Woman Overacted Her Part In Court Scene Some people who appear in the police court resort to queer means in an attempt to convince the judgeI that they have been dangerously saulted an attorney remarked to a Washington Star reporter The judges however are up to all the tricks and it is seldom if ever that they are fooled the speaker added Two colored women got into a dispute the other day and it resulted in one of them having the other ar rested on a charge of assault and policerest of the other after taking an oath to tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth declared that the defendant had struck her on the head Did you have a physician in atj noticingthatdaged up No sir she answered but was badly hurt Let me see the wound the court asked at this point There isnt any wound the roman repliedIBut why is your headwrapped upttl was struck so hard that Ive had the headache ever since was the replyThe case was disposed of at this point by the charge being dismissed by the judge who decided that the facts did not warrant a conviction the attorney said in concluding t

ever attempt ed It Is a waste of effort and no good whatever in it Recently a middle ajrid man in New York was required by a jury to pay 200 to a middle aged woman for having krssed her once against her will and now a Jury at Oibbusb Wisconsin has decreed that a wealthy mine owner must psy 500 to a young woman of his acquant net fur having kissed her three times fur cibly and against her consent The juries acted rightly Men idiotic enough to take kisses that way should 03 made to pay dearly for them A kiss without the full consent and par ilcipation of the klssee is as insipid as It el cakes
