by Prof T A Baker while at Columbian Univer sity Washington D 0 June 1902 CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEI To this great Judge mote than to any other are we under obligations that our government rests today upon a broad firm and durable foundation As was further said in the above ad dress of Judge Dillon of Marshalls judgments upon the national Const Lion They are almost as Important as the text of the Constitution which they expound Some of them were in deed criticised at the time but they have Immovably established them selves as right in the general judgment of lawyers public men and the people Although changes in political parties have been reflected in the personnel of the bench although unforseen cross in the national life have been reached and passed it is remarkable that on not one of his many judgments has been written the word overruled and equally remarkable that no politi cal party proclaims or holds tenets or doctrines inconsistent with the prin ciples on which those judgments rest They have become the primal light shining with the steadfast fidelity of the north star or southern cross for the guidance of the enquirer of Amer ican Constitutional law It was fortunate for us and for the world that such a high priest of the law was given at the time to expound the Constitution and direct us to the safe and solid ground upon which we Constitution was a new and un tried experiment in government with its dual system State and National As Mr Jefferson said in one of his let tersOur revolution presented us an al bum upon which we were to write what we pleased We had no occasion to seareD into musty records to bunt up royal parchments or to investigate the laws and Institutions of some bar barous ancestry We appealed to those of nature and found them engraved on our hearts Yet we did not avail our selves of all the advantages of our po sition We had never been permitted to txerclse self government When forced to assume It we were novices In its science Its principles and forms had entered little into our former edu cation Some of the most important cases that the Supreme Court has been call ed to decide involved the relation of the general government and State governments to each other In another letter Mr Jefferson says I ask for no straining of words against the general government nor yet against the States I believe the States can best govern our home con cerns and the general government our foreign ones I wish therefore to see maintained that wholesome distribu tion of powers established by the Con stitution for the limitation of both It was upon this theory the govern ment of the Constitution was estabs lisped Further on in the letter com menting upon the decisions in Marbu- r vs Madison and Cohens vs the State of Maryland which did nut meet his approval he sayi But the Chief Justice says there must be an ultimate arbiter some where True there must be but does that prove it Is either party The ul timate arbiter Is the people of the Un Ion assembled by their deputies in convention at the call of Congress or of two thirds uf the States Let them decide to which they mean to give an authority claimed by two of their or Chief Justice held that the preme Court was the arbiter selected by the Constitution and in the former case said It is emphatically the province and duty of the Judicial department to say what the law is Those who apply the rule to particular cases must of neces sity expound and interpret that rule If two laws conflict with each other the Court must decide on the operation of each So If the law be in opposi tion to the Constitution If both the law and the Constitution apply to the particular case so that the Court must either decide that case conform ably to the law disregarding the Con stitution or conformably to the Constitution disregarding the law the Court must decide which of these con flicting rnles govern the case This is the very qssence of judicial duty If then the Court into regard the Con stltution and the Constitution Is su perlor to an ordinary act of the Legis lature the Constitution and not such ordinary act must govern the case to which they beth apply Those then who controvert the principle that the Constitution is to be considered in Courts as the para mount law are reduced to the necessity of maintaining that courts must close their eyes to the Constitution and see only the law This doctrine would subvert the very foundation of all written constitutions It would declare that an act which according to the principles and theory of our government Is entirely void is yet in practice completely obligatory The Federalist No 78 on this same subject says Nor does the conclusion by any means suppose a superiority of the Judicial to the legislative power It ly supposes that the power of thepeo pie is superior to both and that where the will of tho Legislature declared in its Statutes stands in opposition to that of the people declared In the Constitution the Judges ought to be gov erned by the latter rather than the are to regulate their decis ions by the fundamental law rather than by those which are not funda mental This reasoning seems to be so con clusive that it is difficult to under stand now how itcould have been open to criticism but until the case of Mar bury vs Madison it was an unsettled questlm whether or not the Supreme Court could adjudge an act of Congress a coordinate department un constitutional It is true the people are behind the Constitution and stat utory enactments and can make or amend IT destroy but a direct appeal to them upon every question of doubt Jut construction would have been haz ardus In the extreme and we can lieve had It been done our government would long ago have fallen a vic tim to the passion of contending par ties It is fortunate that we have au ultimate arbiter acting in the name of the people and for the people to check the excesses of party spirit and arbitrary power The case of McCullough vs State of Maryland Involved the right of a State to impose a taxon a branch of the United States bank This case mark ed a crisis in the conflicting powers of the national government and the State Government A writer has said of it in its last analysis the question involved the life of the fed eral government and also the powers of the State It goes to the very root of the whole philosophy of the State and National government In this case the principle of con struction of the Constitution which has since been recognized and applied is as follows We admit as all mut admit that the powers of the government are lim ited and that its limits arenot to4i9 transcended But we think a sound construction of the Constitution must allow to the National Legislature that discretion with respect to the means by which the powers It confers are to be carried into execution which shall enable that body to perform the high duties assigned to it in the manner most beneficial to the people Let the end be legitimate let It be within the scope of the Constitution and all means which are appropriate which ire plainly adapted to that end which are not prohibited but consistent with the letter and spirit of the Constitu tion are constitutional Should Congress in the execution of its power adopt measures which are prohibited by the Constitution or should Congress under the pretext of executing its powers pass laws for the accomplishment of objects not en trusted to the government it woud be the painful duty of this tribunal should a case requiring such a decision come before it to say sucb an act was not the law of the land The principle was declared that the power to tax Involves the power to destroy that the power to destroy may defeat and render useless the power to createIf the States may tax one instru ment employed by the government in the execution of its powers they may tax any and every other instrument They may tax the malls they may tax the mint they may tex patent rights they may tax the papers of the customhouse they may tax judicial process they may tax all the means employed by the government to an excess which would defeat all the ends of the government This was not intended by the American people They did not design to make their government de pend on the States u Gibbens vs Ogden9 WheatonIs- a leading case on the power of Con gress to regulate commerce with for eign nations and among the several States It grew out of a grant by the State of New York to Bobert Fultou of the exclusive right for a term of years to navigate the waters of the State with boats propelled by steam The grant was declared to be uncon stitutional by the Supreme Court and in It the principle was settled that the power to regulate commerce rests clusively in the general government that full power to regulate a particu lat subject implies the whole power and leaves no residuum Fultons steamboat introduced a new era in navigation and commerce and its In fluence has been far reaching in the fortunes of individuals and nations but that of the principles of law in our country which it served to settle Have they not also been far reaching in their application new conditions To how many things not In existence then indispensible to our commercial relations now do they apply The wonderful inventions and discoveries which have been made since that day steam power upon the waters and steam power upon the land the telegraph and telephone and other appll ances of our modern civilization which have Increased our commerce by the thousandfold were not foreseen or contemplated by the jurist who decided the case yet we refer to its prin ciples as authority in the settlement of the new questions which are pre sented by them Conditions change but principles remain and adapt themselves to the varying phases of society So It is the beauty and glory of our Constitution that firm and stable In its essential principles it has adapted itself withont change to the new conditions which hive arisen dur lug our national life In all of our growth from four mill ions to seventy lire millroDS of people- from thirteen feeble States alongthe Atlantic to

Barnes the other day for tho first time in over twenty years The battle of life had evidently gone hard with this ouco famous preacher His clothes were threadbare and he is oldaudworn He walks with a halting gait the result of a slight stroke of paralysis several years ago Then is a haunted look on his face not good to see and alto gether he is but a shadow of his former self Miss Marie and the little organ are no longer with him and he is too plainly a lone ly broken old man lighting the lust halfad th loshg half uf the battle of life with the burden of age bearing down upon him and the consciousness of mistakes made knocking at the door of memory Over twenty years ago I was one of delighted thousands always ready to listen to his words In his prime he was the greatest pulpit orator I ever heard He preached in Boles Hall every night while in Glasgow and MB audiences taxed the capacity of the building to the utmost His sermons were magnificent the music was entrancing I wus sitting by my sweetheart and it was a fine show What more could a young man not out of his teenshis heart fnll of love and his pockets trio of money want Certainly I didnt wish for anything on earth more except that my lady love lived about two miles father out the pike Lord How it all cornea back to me now But Brother Barnes moved on and time didnt standstill with any of us Boles Hall is guile and the larger part of the congregations that gathered there have passed over the river After a lapse of nearly a quarter of a century this m m of God crosses the path of my life again But it is not the same George 0 Barnes As I wrote this last paragraph u curious thought struck me and it cut like u cold draught through a half open doer Neither aui I the same individual to whom Rev George 0 Barnes preached years ago Then I was a careless frolicking boy Now there is the frost of the autumn of Jife on my hair By my eidc thank God Isits the matured woman nowthe girl thim who drew me more power fully to tho Barnes meeting than did Barnes himself From the cradle in one corner of the room issues a sound like unto a pig snoring From a bed in another corner of the room comes another snore from a somewhat larger pig There are four other Richardson pigs in other rooms upstairs all snoring away to beat the band I am not as young as I was twenty years ago myself Perhaps Bro Barnes might pronounce me a con siderably changed man Heighol We are all setting old and some of us are racing along toward the end uf the world like a lot of blind horses When the account is culled for the final reckoning I doubt not that Brother Barnes will have chosen the better pars fur with all his vagaries and foolishness he is good man The last I heard of Mr Barnes he was at tempting to carry on a protracted meeting in Frankfort and his au dience was a mere handful He is now a convert to Dowieism and is standing up as manfully for his latest belief as he did for his creeds of the old days Miss

dinner given by an Englishman who had onlya short time before struck it rich in the gold fields He was middle aged and a cockney of the cockneys He had been poking around the auri ferous hills of Australia with a pick for more than 20 years before heastruck the ledge that made him a millionaire many times over He was a bachelor and when 1 got to Melbourne he hud only recent ly got his magnificent domicile in running order lIe had about two dozen servants the top man of course being a characteristically grave and imperturbable English but ler a fellow as still as a lamppost and with about as much humor in his carcass as a ninepin The stag dinner was a pretty jolly affair It was attended by about 20 wellknown menabouttown of Melbourne and sonic pcrfomcrs from the Melbourne vaudeville theaters were engaged to entertain the guestsThe English butler presided over the feast with the solemn manner fitting his kind The1 fun ran around the table like a breeze after the wine began to operate but nary a grin crossed the features of the haughty butler He stood at the sideboard as straight as a persimmon tree with his arms folded and his countenance was like a mask of tragedy when the host and all of the guests were all but rolling out of their chairs with laughterI sitting on the left of the host and I observed that the preterInatural gravity of the butler was grating on the hosts nerves When ever the laughter was at its height the cockney millionaire would glaiica up from beneath his bushy eyebrows at IVc butler only to perceive that not so much as a

execute their cutup stunts the butler never gave the slightest indication that he saw anything funny in the proceedings Finally a mono logue chap whose line of talk was screamingly funny got the floor and it wasnt long before he had everyman at tile table just a rocking and holding their sides The host kept his eyes glued upon the butlers face to see if the professionalentertainer even was capable of drillings grin out of his face But it was no go The butler stood like a rock To all in tents and purposes lie might just as well have had paralysis of the facial nervesThe cockney host couldnt stand it any longer He jumped out of hi chairshowing that he was just a bit unsteady on his legs which was natural enough considering the way the corks had been popping and rushing upon the butler and catching him around the waist he threw the imperturbable servitor onto thefloor threw open the butlers coat dug the fingers of both his strong pudgy hands into the butlers ribs to tickle him and bawled as he leanedover the man Larf y bloody Stoughton bot tie lad Thats right lad Larf till y bust y bloomink covet The butler convulsed with un controllable shrieks of laughter under the tremendous tickling which he was undergoing yelled to be let up before he went off into I isterics but his employer went right on tickling him withall his might until the butler was exhausted Then he let him up

HUUBA PllOPOSE SpeaUion ot marriage the case ot Mrs Leach is interesting Mrs Leach owns a ranch In the Antelope Valley California Shes married to her second husband Her first husband was a nice quiet respectable old gentleman and thats all there was to him But her secnnd husbandwell She was told ut him by her lawyer and she went after him She intioduced herself told her business and they were married All went well while she loaned him money but later when she wished to go visit lug he put his foot down and when she Insisted he got a switch and thrashed her all the way to where she was going a mile and a half and all the way back again All this she told in a Los Angeles court when she tried to get a divorce butshe was turned down by the judge Ss she had nobody to aubstantlate herstory and her husband denied It This story would seem to answer the question Should women propose It Mrs Leach was going to her club when she was switched there are husbands who would indorse the action of her husbandrude vulgar men of course with no culture about them SOME ANSWER The Editor of the Winchester Dem ocrat scut out circular letters to a large number of married men sub scribers and asked them why the mar ried Here are some of the answers- I didnt intend to do it Thats tue same fool question my friends ask me Because I did not have the experience I have now I yearned for company Now we have it all the time Thats what Ive been trying for 11 years to find out I married to get even with her moth er but never have- I thought it would be cheaper than breach of promise suit Because Tessie told me that live other men had proposed to her Because I asked her to have me she said she would I think shes gut me I wanted a companion of the op posite sex N B Sne is still oppo siteTheold man was going to give me his foot so I took his daughters hand Because I thought she was one among a thousand now I think she is a thousand among one I was lonesome and melancholy and wanted some one to make me lively I have exhausted all the figures in the arithmetic to find an answer to your question between multiplica tion and division in the family and distraction in addition the answer is hard to arrive at THE SCHOOL BOOK TRUST The battle for cheaper schoolbooks in the hands of the 800000 children of Kentucky has already begun Iu will be concluded only when the next legis lature adjourns It It is not then successful ibe contest will be waged before the succeeding legislature and the next and the next until the children and parents win The fight will be slurp but the issus should not be doubtful On one side stand every child and every mother and father in the State on the other concentrated capital a powerful lobby and every conceivable corrupting influence The booktrust has been forced out of its monopoly and driven to direct competition in North Carolina LuIs iada Texas and Tennessee and generally throughout northern States It holds to its monopoly in a few States of the South and West and for this continued control it will tight to the last ditch especially in Kentucky where another victory means at least two Ytars morn of fat pickings and probably clinches its hold for a long period to come It triumphed over Governor Beckham in the last legisla ture if it wins out in the next oppo sition will be disheartened and weak ened It Kentucky is ever to cease being a fruitful field for the operations of the Looktrust if the manipulations of the trust by which the children of the State are forced to pay from thirty five to fifty per cent above fair prices for schoolbooks are to be put an end to then the newspapers of the State must take bod of the subject in earn est If they do not public sentiment will not he teurouihly aflus d and the booktrust will proceed without mercy with its work of holding up the 800000 children of the State It is a skin game a mean game a thoroughly dis disreputable gamea robbery not only of men but of women and children but this will not in the least deter those engaged in the shameful work of extortion If the newspapers of Ken tucky do their duty the booktrust can be run out of the State Astatc uniformity law coupled with o straight cmpetitlon Inbiading 1 means a reduction of from thirty to fifty per cent in the price of all school books and this means a saving each year of from 400000 to 500000 ft Kentucky parents Glasgow times KILLED HIS SISTER In Central Gity Sunday at nine oclock a happy home was plunged into deepest mourning in a twinkling At this hour James Sexton Jr a lad of but

was a deaf ening report and the innocent little girl fell lifeless to the floor almost the entire left side of her head being blown away The bulk of the charge had en tered jnst to the leftot her nose
