ELASTICITY OF THE FEDERAL CON STITUTIONI AN INTERESTING DOCUHENT The following is the Four Hundred Dollar prize essay written by Prof T A Baker while at Columbian UniveF slty Washington D 0 June 1902 CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK The reserved rights of the State and of the people are as sacred and well guarded today as they were a century ago and perhaps more respected because better understood afid more clearly defined The boundary lines have been run and marked and the cornerstones planted It is not strange that there were disputes and conten tions in regard to the granted and reserved rights One general government State governments each sovereign in its constitutional sphere operating over the same peoplewhat marvelous political machinery What complexity and yet what simplicity What wisdom in its construction that with its wheels and checks and balances it should stand the wear and tear the Jostle and the jars of these hundred years and continue strong in all its parts Recent events have brought our nation into new relations with enlarged responsibilities and duties They have served to demonstrate to the world that we are what our fathers in the convention of 1787 intended we should be a nation with all the powers and attributes of a nation As a world power In our foreign intercourse full authority is vested in the general gov ernment in its various departments to meet every duty and every emergency Its demonstration was seen in our interposition in behalf of Cuba audio the settlement of the disturbance in of the results territory has come into our possession in the Orient occupied by a semibarbarous people of several millions It presents in some of its aspects new conditions and grave responsibilities yet we are optimistic enough to believe that it will be met with the courage and the wisdom that have heretofore controlled and direct ed us as a people It has been shown that we have been acquiring territory since the days of Jefferson and thereI- S abundant warrant for it both In precedent and the rulings of the Su we have had and alarmists we will continue to have some of ur old men will see visions and young men will dream dreams yet the country will move on in its predestined course Congress has been legislating for our territories since the celebrated ordinance of 1787 and will doubtless continue to do so as long as we have any or until the people arrive at the point where they have the capacity to act for themselves And the Supreme Court will as it has been doing settle questions of constitutional fight growing out of our relation with them restrains and holding in constitutional bounds the actions of the other partments of the government Whether the Constitution follows the flag or the flag the Constitution it wUst be admitted that the agencies of the government are Its creations and amenable to its provisions and in view of its past history we need tertain no fears that the inhabitants will be invested with all the rights of personal and political liberty which they are capable of enjoying The proper limits of this article forbid and its purpose precludes us from entering upon consideration of the restrictions In the Constitution upon the powers of the general government They are our bill of rights and are no less Important then the express grants If the one gives efficiency and strength to the general goverment the other guards and preserves the liberties of the people History abounds with examples of governments possessed of arbitrary and despotic power over their subjects Our fathers neither needed nor desired precedents in that direction They sought to establish a government which reversed preexisting theories and which placed the supremacy in the people themselves speaking through tbelr fundamental law It was iu consequence of the discus over thu ratification of the Cunstitu Lion that the twelve amendments were soon after added to the orignal docu mentas submitted by the convention While paying homage to Marshall and men like him who did so much In laying the broad and solid foundation upon which our government rests we would do no less for Jefferson and oth ers who with him will ever be remembered as the great apostles of the rights and liberties of the people and the re served rights of the States They were all equally patriotic all striving to the same end the establishment of good government upon a durable basisallc- oworkersabd indispensible to the ac com pllshment of the greaj result The Constitution which they fram ed llncbaiigedfrom that itwaswhen it came from their hand has witness ed wonderful transformations in the condition of the country It has car ried us through three foreign wars and one civil war gigantic In its pro portions It has witnessed expansion in territory in agriculture in com merce beyond the dream of fancy It has witnessed the growth of the nation from a small beginning to worldwide influence and power taxes havebeen collected money borrowed debts paid treaties made post offices and post roads established public improve meets constructed manufacture encouraged science and art promoted the liberties of the people preserved and made secure Would Itbea wild prophecy to say that the near future will give us an Istmian canal uniting the waters of the two oceans and a submarine cable to our Philippine possessions under government control by the united votes of the liberal and strict construe tlonists If our commercial interests and the general welfare and safety de mand them It cannot be said that they are beyond the power of our govern tendency of legislation and of judicial Interpretation has been toward a liberal construction of the powers of the general government Viewing the subject in the light of existing events the course seems to have been notonly wise but absolutely necessary Elas ticity in the Constitution is a condi tion of the growth and prosperity of the country It is an element of its strength and life and without it prog ress and expansion would have been impossible Ithas in no way under our dual system of government been incompatible with the liberties of the people the general government deal ing almost exclusively with external or interstate affairs and the State governments with local affairs Our lives and liberty and property are largely under the protecting care of the latter and the courts have been no less ready to guard them than they have been to sustain the grants of power to the former Elasticity there fore only gives it a wider grasp in deal ing with affairs which concern people of the whole country Sumarlzlng what has been said 1st The need of the Confederation was a stronger federal head god It was the purpose of our fath ers to establish and they did establish a national government- 3rd Although a limited govern ment it sovereign within its sphere of action and possesses all the powers and attributes sovereignty 4th In the exercise of this sover eignty all the means necessary and proper follow as incidents 5th It is the peoples government and the Constitution is the supreme law6th The express grants of power to the departments carry with them as Incidents the means necessary to their proper exercise Human wisdom could not foresee and4deslgnate thedetals and they are necessarily in the discretion of the departments within rea sonable limits 7th The Supreme Court is the ar biter under tee Constitution but above all is the power in the people of amendment 8th A liberal construction of the grants of power to the general govern ment has prevailed and has been nec essary without impairing the reserved rights of the States and people 9th Elasticity Ina written ConstK tutlon is indispensible to an expanding and growing country and in a govern ment like ours Is in no wise incompat ible with the liberties of the people The Constitution has met and been sufficient for all of these things and for allot the past exigencies that haver U r arisen in bur internal affairs and In our relations with foreign govern ments It is more firmly Imbedded in the loyal love and affection of the people now that J t was in the hearts of our fathers because we see and better know its value They beheld it dimly and with the eye of faith hoping praying that It might prove to be what they desired but we behold itas it Isthe greatest chart for free government thatbas been devised by the wisdom of man THEENDJ FORCES Another Negro Officeholder Upon South HARDSHIP 0 N WHITES Washington Jane6Special President Roosevelt today took another step in his Southern policy and forced upon the people of Charles ton SC a negro Surveyor of Customs one W D Crum The case hasI already come in for much comment owing to a letter recently written by the President to a prominent citizen of Charleston In this letter the Rres ident took the ground that there were nocharges against Crum and intimat ed that he would appoint him Citi zens who desired to prevent the appointment of Crum preferred minor charges against him but genera speaking he was only oppospb on tbe ground that he Is a negro The Pres- Idents action has therefore caused nosurprlseand It Is expected that the nomination of the negro Yick to the Wilson N C postoffice will shortly of South Carolina said tonight that the President in selecting negroes for Federal positions in the Southern States was simply fol lowing a clan of campaign evidently outlined to secure delegates from the South in the next national convention Senator Tilmans words were evoked by the submission in the Senate of Crums nomination When the ap pointment was sent in this afternoon the Senator in response to an inquiry Immediately announced that he would fight coufirmation So far as this special case is con cerned said the Senator I cannot ee that Crum is given this place for any other reason than that he is a negro and if the qualifications requisite for Federal appointments are hereafter to be that the prospective appointees are to be black white men of the South will be compelled to object The President seems to stand on a certain line of policy which Indi cates the political considerations paramount just now There appears to be a race on for delegates to the national convention I do think that in any State public sfflces ought to be parcelled out along any settled basis of the whole State of South Carolina a great majority of white men have protested against this nomination of Crum There are not 600 white men in the whole State who will Indorse this action We think the President could have selected some reputable white Republican for the place without subjecting us to this mortification He could even have gone to the extent of appointing a carpetbagger We now have a carpet bagger postmaster at Charleston Personally lam opposed to both negro and carpetbagger appointees but of the two evils I select the latter I argue that the President should not discriminate in the States in selecting negroes for Federal offices Wiry for instance should the President potap point a negro postmaster at Cumberland MdjHarrodsburg Pa or some other town in the Notrh Let all States share alike Give us no parliall ty It is all brutal politics Negro delegates to the national convention are involved The situation In the South over the present negro policy of the administration is undoubtedly becoming very strained and many members fear an outbreak at any time or place The subject has come in for more agitation In the last four months than It has since the days of reconstruction The trouble at Indianpolia probablyduo to this agitation for until the Presl dentbegattJoclrculateblsviewBabout I the appointment of negroes tj Southern offices there seems to have b no trouble at Indianola TheP s cats views are diametrically oPP se to those of the people of Indlauou and in tact every other town in the SouthNaturally tlwj wart quick to see that in tolerating a negro postmaster they were indirectly placed In an attitude of indifference towards the Presidents ideas NEWS NOTES John Haley a committed suicideIHenry Taylor of Lexington ate five quails and won 9100

raided tbe camps of oil boomers and captured a number of rich claims MUDDLE IN THE THIRTEENTH There is a very unfortunate state of affairs in the 13th judicial district A convention was held at Danville Dec 10 to nominate candidates for circuit judge and Commonwealths attorney A split resulted and two candidates for each of these officers are now claim- Ing to be the democratic nominees the incumbents of the offices Judge M C Saufley and John S Owsley Jr T on the one hand and Messrs W C Bell and C A Hardin on the other At best the district is close politically and unless tho governing authorities of the party shall take action and de cide who are the regular nominees or refer the matter back to the people the result will be the election of the republican candidates who are already regarding the situation with delight The Democrat does not undertake to say to whom the nominations rIght fully belong That is not a question for it to decide Itsonly concern is the welfare of the party and the object of this article is te call the attention of the State Central Committee which meets at Frankfort next Monday to the matter and to Insist that it inves tigate the claims of the contestants and either decide between them or refer the question to a primary elec tlon as it did in the case of Moody vs Trimble in 1900 in this Congressional district It the matter 1s done the election could be held on the same day as the State primary May 9th and thereby lighten the expense all around We would also suggest in view of the fact that the friends of Mr Bobert Harding think that he was not given a fair deal In the convention that the bars be thrown down and he and any others who wish to contest for the nominatiun for either ounce be per mitted to do so instead of limiting tbe candidates to the present claimants of out the nominations There has been talk of taking the question to the courts but in the case referred to of Moody vs Trimble 22d Law Reporter Page 692 and the court of appeals decided that the our party authorities are the ones to settle the such questions and that It will enter be tain jurisdiction to settle them if at oryThethe continuance of
