Tho Federal tlovernmenl has the power to enrry out

Tho same proiisions. upon tho snino principle.
Congress has legislated iiHin this nsthey hnro upon
the provision for the rendition of persons psenpod
.from lnhor or service. Hut the constitutionality of
the legislation with rojr.ird rligitive.l from justic
has never hecn dmihtcd. The (lovernors of soma
Stales have refused to (jivo up "fugitives fromju

niMilln iciit "cause:" never nn Hint of "unconstilu-

tutionalitr of legislation providing for the returtt of
fugitives from justice.
It ia stated of that provision in tho Constitution1
which snvs tlint full faith nnd credit shall ho given
to tho pulilie nets and records of other States that
no power is conferred on tho Federal (ioveriinient
to enforce it.
Is tins so? The fundamental law tle.iaro that
