Before doing bo he wrote a note to hiB brother-in-law saying "This ia the ultimate result of gambling and a dissipated life and is a "warning to young men." But will it he a warning? Or must each person learn for himself by bitter experience the pen alty of sin? i Among the subscriptions which reached The Commoner office last week were twenty- five from the Transvaal Repub lic in far away South Africa. It is gratifying to the editor to know that this paper commends itself to the people who are so bravely endur ing hardships in defense of the doctrine of self government.

It was printed about in the newspapers, debated in the convention and eloquently dis cussed in the shopB and on the streets. Nearly all American visitors to Cuba had come back and reported that the Cubans were virtually unanimous in their eagerness to accept the Piatt amondment and end the military con trol. I found that they wore practic ally unanimous, but tho unanimity was for tho rejection of the conditions im posed by tho extraordinary amend ment to tho army appropriation bill.

in every American scrap "book. On this point Justice Brown said: "Large powers must necessarily "be intrusted to congress in dealing with these problems, and wo are bound to assume that they will bo judic ially exercised. That these powers may be abused is possible. But the same may he said of its powers under the constitution as well as outside o it. Human wisdom has never devised a form of government so perfect that it may not be por verted to bad purposes. It is never conclusive to 'argue against the possession of certain powers from possible abuses of them. It is safe to say that if congress should venture upon legislation mani festly dictated by selfish interests- it would re ceive quick rebuke at the hands of the people." llaving "been dispossessed of the advantages of a written constitution we have the right to hope that the men whom wo elect to office will not abuse the extraordinary power conferred upon them by the United States Supreme Court.

BaESWW '$ 6 The Commoner. 'Tho power,' ho said, 'to lay and collect duties, im posts, and excises may bo exorcised, and must bo oxercised, throughout tho United States. Does this term designate tho whole, or any particular portion of tho American empire? Certainly this question can admit but of ono answer. It is tho namo given to our great republic, which is com posed of states and territories. Tho District of Columbia, or tho territory west of the Missouri, is not less within tho United States than Mary land and Pennsylvania; and it is not less neces sary, on the principles of our constitution, that uniformity in the imposition of imposts, duties, and excises should bo observed in tho ono than in the other. Since, then, tho power to lay and col lect taxes, which includes direct taxes, is ob viously coextensive with tho power to lay and collect duties, imposts, and excises, and sinco tho latter extends throughout the United States, it follows that tho power to impose direct taxes al...

The difficulties of bring ing about a union of the states was so great, the objections to it seemed so formidable, that tho whole thought of tho convention centered upon surmounting these obstacles. The question of territories was dismissed with a single clause, apparently applicable only to the territories then existing, giving congress the power to govern and dispose of them. "Had the acquisition of other territories been contemplated as a possibility, could it have been foreseen that within little more than one hundred years wo were destined to acquire not only tho whole vast region between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, but the Russian possessions in America and distant islands in the Pacific, it Is inoredible that no provision should have been made for them, and the question whether the constitution should or should not extend to them have been .definit...
