I.AlKTlli: CONSTITUTION t
The position that any part of the

tiou of Congress to maku it applic
able) in any Territory of tbo Unit
ed Slates, or operativo to protect
tbo rights of tho people in any tbr
rilory involves mauifcet absurdi
ties. It is of the very nature of lajh
lation, that it is discretionary with
tho legislature, and that tho powor
which can puss an effective law,
may either puss it, or not pass it,
and may alter, nmend, or repeal it,
when passed. If Cougres?, there
fore, can effectively legislate tbe
Constitution, it must have equal
powor effectively to withhold the
Constitution, or to suspend its

nuds and may proceed to violate
every one of them with impunity,
by legislation applicable only to
those islands wbero those amend

It follows, upon that ubsord

Tbo truth is tbat tho Coustilu

never owe ils effectiveness in uny

It can only bo amended or
