PPWPPWJ mmmwmmmwm The Commoner. Vol. i. No. 21. Lincoln, Nebraska, June 14, 1901. $1.00 a Year PERHAPS! Justice Brown would bo happier if lie had contented himself with a decision without at- tempting to give any reasons for it. There are many vulnerable passages in the opinion which he delivered, but there is one passage which shows the uncertainty produced by the court's decision. Heretofore, the people have regarded liberty as an inalienable right, and freedom of speech and freedom of the press have been considered absolutely necessary to its defense. Those who prize liberty and regard freedom of speech as above price will not take kindly to the word "perhaps," used by Justice Brown in discussing this subject. He said: "To sustain the judgment in the case under consideration it by no means becomes necessary to show that none of the articles of the consti tution applies to the island of Porto Rico. There is a clear distinction between such prohibitions as go to the very root of th...

Why do ihey not urge the nomination of .Justice Harlan.? Of course, Mx. Harlan is .not ,,a democrat, but that objection ought not to weigh with the gold democrats who voted for Mr. McKinley. Mr. Harlan has not only placed himself on record against imperialism, but he also wrote a dissenting -opinion in the income tax case, and opposed the position taken bythe supremo court in the sugar trust case. He has a. splendid record on throe prominontiquestions, but ,this is the very reason why the gold demo crats would objeotto him. They prefer adem .ocrat who (endorses .republican policies to a re publican who .supports democratic policies. The Growth of Imperialism.

county treasurer, let ns call him Mr. Smith, became" a candidate for a third term; his'com petitor, -whom we will call Mr. Jones, made his fight against the incumbent on the ground hat a third term ought not to be given to an official (intrusted with the handling of the county money. Ho insisted that there ought to bo a change so that the books could be examined. His arguments were effective and he beat Mr. Smith. At the end- of the second term he be gan to long for a third term himself, but for a whilo, remembering the issue upon which he won the office, he refrained from announcing his candidacy. Finally his desire to retain the office overcame his desire to be consistent and he entered the race for a third time. To quiet his conscience, however, he went around to apologize to Mr. Smith for the arguments he had formerly advanced and his apology ran like: tli is: "Mr. Smith, when .you were a candidate for a third term I made the race against you on the theory that a third term waB ...

If there was any public rded for disciplining tho old United States bank, we' suspect that tho City would bo a good institu tion to keep a sharp eye on today. The govern ment of the United States is still presumably run ill the interests of the nearly eighty millions that constitute our population, and it looks to us as if this Standard Oil bank was not in any such meas ure as regardful of the rights of the peopje as it should be."

The Cuban Convention has by a vote of fifteen to fourteen accepted the Piatt amend ment, but in doing so it took occasion to add what the members of the convention under stood to bo the construction placed upon the amendment by the administration. When the Cuban Commission visited Washington it con sulted Secretary Root and was assured that the Piatt amendment was a very innocent and harmless document, and it was not only natural but proper that the convention should place on record its understanding of the amendment as explained by the authoiities at Washington. This construction, which may bo described as an amendment to the amendment, reads as fol lows: "Clause 3, relating to intervention, does not, it is stated, imply intermeddling and interference in matters of Cuban government, and will last only long enough to restore normal conditions.

1 he LOmmoner. Vol. I. No. 22. Lincoln, Nebraska, June ai, 1901. $1.00 a Year CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTY The worst feature of the supremo court de cision in the Downes case is that it strikes a Wow at constitutional liherty. In attempting to defend the position taken by the majority of the court, Justice Brown used' arguments which, if carried to their logical conclusion, would deny the necessity for a constitution anywhere. According to the decision of the court, Congress can govern Porto Rico as- a colony, without constitutional limitations, so far as the taxing power is concerned, and enough is said in the majority opinion to show that no political right is absolutely secure. The. question naturally arises: If the Porto Ricans do not need the protection of a written constitution, why do the people of the United States need a written,constitution? If we concede that the Porto Ricans are safe with out a constitution we must also admit that the American people would he safe without a co...

conclusion that tho people of Porto Rico can entrust their rights to the protection of- an un restrained congress? Justice Brown is a citizen of the state of Michigan, and Michigan also has a constitu tion and a hill of rights. Is Justice Brown willing to go before tho people of his own state and tell them that their legislature should he vested with full and unrestrained power to act on all questions affecting the rights and property of the citizens? If not, why. not? Is a Congress more reliable than a state legis lature? Is a representative body morp trust worthy as it gets farther away from the people? Is delegated authority more carefully exercised in proportion as the seat of government is far ther removed from the voters? Tho position taken by Judge Brown would be ludicrous if it wore not so serious. It is strange that his language is not challenged by republicans. Two republican Judges out of six dissented from this position; have the republican newspapers less independence t...

The people of the south have their members of congress, their senators and their presidential electors, as -well as their local self-. government; they share in the destiny of the nation and in the guarantees of the constitu tion. The administration wants to hold the Filipinos under the flag but outside the consti tution they are to bo subjects, amenable to our laws, not citizens who participate in the making of laws. The south suffered from car pet bag rule ; it knows what injustice can bo wrought by an irresponsible government ad ministered from without and it can guess what sort of treatment will be accorded the Fili pinos.

Being a federalist ho was tho object of vory violent at tacks on tho part of tho democrats of his day, and recognizing the growing strength of his opponents ho doubted, as I believe, his ability to again secure an election if ho should run." This will bo interesting to those who have given Washington credit for honesty. It would detract somewhat from the fame of the "Father of His Country" if he really refused athird nom ination because he feared defeat and then urged as a reason for hio declination a lofty and pa triotic sentiment. But now that the Declara tion of Independence has been cast aside as rubbish and tho constitution separated from the flag, Washington might as well go with the rest. Meaning of Flag Changed.

The Commoner. 5 The Constitution and the Flag. "The constitution follows tho flag' says one of our contemporaries this morning. "The constitution does not follow the flag," declares another. "The constitution does not necessarily follow the flag," asserts a third. "Porto Rico is not a part of the United States," according to a fourth. "Porto Rico is under the constitution," pro claims a fifth. It is not surprising that "confusion worse con founded" should thus reign in the journalistic mind after reading the several majority and -minority opinions of the United States supremo court in the insular cases. In none of these was the decision of the court unanimous, or, it may he added, clear ly defined. In each the justices divided almost equally In one of the two leading cases the ma jority held that the Dingley tariff could not apply to Porto Rico because it was not a foreign country, hut a territory of the United States. In the other it ruled that for tariff purposes the island was no...
