THE PITTSBURG PISPATOH, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14 1892.-
HILL IS SUSTAINED.
Ei3 Apportionment of New York Is
Called Proper and Legal
5BT AIL THE DEMOCRATIC JUDGES,
tut the Two Republican Members of the
Court of Appeals
DISSENT FLATLY WITH THE DECISION
Albany, IT. X., Oct. 13. In the cases of
the people ex rel Horn, appeal against
the Board or Supervisors ot Monroe county
and the people ex rel Horn, appellant, ver
sus the Board of Supertisors of Oneida
conntr, better known as "the apportion
ment test cases," the Court of Appeals to
day reversed the order in both cases, and
motions for a mandamus were granted, with
costs in all courts. These were cases in
which the court was asked to issue orders
for writs of mandamus compelling the
Board of Supervisors of Monroe and Oneida
counties to redistrict the assembly districts
in those counties in compliance with the
apportionment law passed by the last Leg
islature. The order of the lower court was affirmed,
with costs in. all courts in the case of the
people ex rel George E. Carter, of Utica,
appellant, apainst Frank Rice, Secretary of
State. In this case the court was asked to
grant an injunc.ion order restraining the
Secretary ot State Irom recognizing the
new apportionment law or sending out
notices of election of members of Assembly
to county clerks except under the appor
tionment law of 1889, the lower court
having refused to grant such an order.
Two Judges on the Minority Side.
The main opinion upholding the law is
written by Judse Peckham. Justice Gray
also writes an opinion upholding the law.
Judge Andrews wrote a dissenting opinion,
which was concurred in by Judge Finch.
The court is unanimous upon ail the ques
tions involved except those discussed in
Judge Andrews' opinion. The Judges prac
tically agree on all questions touching the
constitutionality of the apportionment law
except on the question of the discretion
used by the Legislature in apportioning the
remaiin'ncr members of Assembly among the
counties having the fractional ratios.
The vote of the Court of Appeals sustain
ing the apportionments practically 5 to 2,
the E being Democratic judges Earl, Peck
bam pray, O'Brien and Maynard. Judge
Andrews files a separate opinion.
To elec a United States Senator requires
81 votes on joint ballot of the two branches
of the Legislature. The Democrats will
have 17 votes next winter, when the time
comes tor electing a successor to Frank His
coefc. asnmni!.' that the majority in that
body holds together till that time. The lie
publicans will have 13 votes, and one Ed
wards, of the Thirty-second " district may
not be cast for either regular party candi
date. The Republicans Still Have a Show.
To elect the Senator the Democrats must
have 64 votes in the Assembly and the Re
publicans 67. "While, therefore, the Be
pubheans will be able to control legislation
it they elect 65 members, they will need
three more to control the United States
Senatorship. There are 67 Democrats and
61 Bepublicans in the Assembly of
1892. Three of the Republicans were from
Is'ew York and three from Kings. If the
Republicans can elect 4 out of SO, which
this new apportionment assigns to New
Tork, and 4 out of the 18 which it gives to
Kings, they can secure not only the control
of the Assembly, but also the Senate.
In the main and decisive opinion by
Judge Peckham these conclusions appear
First It is contended on tho nart of tlinsn
who allege tile invalidity of the law of 1S92
that it was passed tn violation ot that pio
wsion o the Constitution, which directs
tho alteration to be made by tlie Legislature
at the "flrt session after the return of every
enumeration." Theactwasin tiuthpased
at au extraoi dinary session of the Legisla
ture called by tlie Governor, and after
the return ol the enumeration of 1S92.
Tne point is made that an ex
tract din.iry session is not such a ses
sion ot the Legislature as is contemplated
by the Constitution. To my mind tlie ob
jection is holly without force. There is no
basis in the language of the Constitution for
the claim that a session of the Legislature
referred to in that instrument is the first
session of the Legislature wlucn itself first
convenes alter the leturn of the apportion
ment. The Constitution does not say so,
and I fail in finding any reason. In principle
or in the nature of the subject, which calls
lor such a construction, bucli construction
tmsts and distorts tbe ordinary and plain
meaning of the lanituace actually employed.
A Duty That Was Long Neglected.
Second Tho act is alleged to violate the
Constitution because based upon an enu
meration taken in 1SU2 Instead of 1SS5. It is
true that it was the duty of tbe Legislature
In ISSo to direct an enumeration of the in
habitants of the State in that year, and If it
had discharged that duty it would baye
been the duty of tho Legislature at the first
session aftei the i cturn of that enumeration
to proceed to apnortion the districts. The
Legislature of ItSo omitted to perform tne
duty oi directing an enumeration which
wab cast upon it by the Constitution. Each
succeeding Legislature up to 1S92 also
omitted to periorm this duty, and thus for
set en j ears tne Constitutional mandate had
been 10lated. And this duty continued
and was cast upon each succeeding Legisla
ture until tbe constitutional obligation was
fulfilled. Vie are of opinion that the objec
tion made has no color ot ahdity.
Third The thud objection is raised to the
validity 01 this act. It is stated that as to
the Senate districts it is not based upon an
equal number of inhabitants, excluding
"persons of color not taxed."
The Judge here reviews the amendments
to the United States and State Constitu
tions regarding the complete enfranchise
ment ot colored citizens, and holds that the
provision regarding an enumeration on
which Senate district apportionments shall
be used against the colored man has been
abrogated by these amendments, and says:
"We are of'the opinion that the objection
to the validity of the act of 1892 based upon
the failure to exclude persons of color not
taxed cannot prevail."
As to the Inequality of Districts.
Fourth It is finally objected that the act
is invalid because the Senate districts do not
contain an equal number of inhabitants as
nearly as may be. This question of inequal
ity contains, in my judgment, the only de
batable proposition arising in these cases.
We think that the courts have no power in
such case to review the exercise of a discre
tion intrusted to the Legislature by the
Constitution, unless it is plainly and grossly
abused, lhe exorestlon "as nearly as may
be," when used in the Constitution witn
reference to this subject, does not mean as
nearly as a mathematical process can be
followed. It is a direction addressed to the
Legislature in the way of a general state
ment of the principles upon which the ap
portionment sball be made. We are of
the opinion that the Legislature, by
the alteration of the Senate dis
tricts under the act of 1892, has not
violated the legitimate and necessary dis
cretion intrusted to it by the Legislature.
As to the Assembly districts the burden of
complaint 1 eats upon the apportionment of
four or five members or the Assembly out
of 128. Tbe reason lor tbe paitlcular action
or the Legislature upon this question must
be sought for in some considerations other
than partisan, for 1 think it is shown these
did not enter into the question upon this
point. The inference is lair that these
changes were absolutely necessary in order
to secure tlie pasae of the bilL Other con
siderations might be added to show that
tbe Legislature of 1892, In the passage of the
act under review, did not approach the
danger line ot an abuse of legislative discre
tion. A Travesty on Law and Justioe.
"When we come to the question of what
law is in force in this State if the law of 1892
Is not, the situation becomes most alarming.
If tho act or 1892 is void tne act of 1879 is also
plainly void, and no elections of members or
Assembly should bo tolerated under it
Tills might relegate the people to the aot or
1666, and thus we might have an attempt at
an election for members or Assembly under
an act more than a quarter of a century old
and a legislative representation of the
people ot that time. This would be a trav
esty on tbe law and upon all ideas of equal
ity, propriety and J ustioe. W are compelled
to tbe conclusion that this act of 1892 suc
cessfully withstands all assaults upon lt,aud
Is a valid and effective law.
Judge Andrews wrote a dissenting opin
ion, holding the Legislative appportion
xnent law to be unconstitutional, which was
concurred in by Judge Finch. It says:
I am of the opinion that the apportion
ment act or 1S92 is void for the reason that
in apportioning members of Assembly
among the counties of the State it violates
the rules of the eouality established by the
Constitution. The departure from the con
stitutional method in tbe aotoflS92 is sub
stantial, and its validity' having been chal
lenged in the courts, it cannot be upheld
without establishing a dangerous precedent
for tbe future. The claim that the Legisla
ture in making an apportionment may take
Into consideration the probable growth of
population has no support in the Constitu
tion. The apportionment is to be based
upon the existence or the population ascer
tained by the preceding enumeration and
apportionment is the constitutional remedy
for any such temporary inequalities.
One Case of the Utter Injustice.
If the Legislature was permitted to act
upon tbe ground suggested it would intro
duce a most uncertain element, and might
be the cover for great abuses. It is plain
that in the present case the inequalities are
notttributable to any such consideration.
Monroe county, containing a rapidly-growing
city and with a much larjer population
tnan Albany county, was given tnree mem
bers, and Albany was given four. It is un
necessary to consider, in this case, the ques
tion ot constitutionality of the act of 1S92, so
far as it relates to Senate districts. The act
must stand or fall as a whole, and if, in re
spect to one branch of the Legislature, the
act is unconstitutional, it cannot be upheld.
The power or the courts to set aside an un
constitutional apportionment has quite re
cently been asserted and exercised by the
courts of Wisconsin and Michigan. These
cases consider with much ability the ques
tion of judicial power, and determine that a
substantial departure in an apportionment
act from tbe rule of equality renders it void.
I recognize the gravity of the question now
presented, nor do I fail to appreciate that
holding tho apportionment void will pro
duce temporary inconvenience, but the evils
which may flow irom this are not to be com
pared, I thine, with the public injury which
will result from sanctioning a disregard of
one of the vital principles of representative
Judge Gray concurs in the validity of the
apportionment, and writes a separate opin
ion giving the grounds of his conclusions.
WOUND UP THEIR WORK.
The Grand Jury Breaks All Records and
Ketires Important Cases Considered
Many Defendants Included In One In
dictment Builders' Exchange Officials
Indicted for Conspiracy.
The grand jury finished its business for
the present term and was discharged yester
day with the thanks of Judge Kennedy on
behalf of both court and public The
grand jury has acted on the largest number
of cases In any one term in the history ot
the county since 188L There have only
been two terms in which a larger number of
bills were returned. The first was the Sep
tember term of 1874, the year following
the panic of 1873, when so many larceny
and assault and battery cases resulted irom
people being out of work. The number of
bills acted on that term was 1,27a The
number returned in the September term in
1881 was 1,565. That was the year in which
over 1,500 people were indicted tor
illegal liquor selling, during the ad
ministration of AIL Bowan as District
Attorney. The September term seems to
be the large one each year. In 1890 the
number of bills acted on reached 776, in
1891, 904, this year there were 1,099 bills.
This includes 53 Oyer and Terminer cases,
comprising the higher degrees ot crime,
such as murder, burglary aud indecent as
saults, as against 37 Oyer and Terminer
cases in the September term last year, leav
ing 1,046 Quarter Sessions cases this term.
The number of bills, however, does not
represent the actual number oi defendants,
as in many cases there are from two to ten
persons indicted in one bill. For instance
in tbe Homestead cases there are 31 people
intlicted for treason and one bill covers all
of them. It is estimated that the 1,099 bills
acted on this term represent nearly 1,500
The ignored bills returned yesterday
were John Bartsits and C M. Parish, lar
ceny; J. Gannon, false pretense; James
Walls, assault and battery.
The true bills were: Grace Brown, con
cealing the death of a child; John Burke
aud Amanda Bassett, larceny; H. E.
Barnes, John Carr, L. T. Yoder, Dr. F.
McAFee, D. E. Shendon, H. M. Kerr, E.
A. Knox, T. J. Hamilton, J. W. Beckett,
conspiracy; H. J. Bigger, embezzlement; F.
H. Cummmgs, bigamy and perjury; Lew
McAlister, misdemeanor; O. S. Weddell,
offering a bribe. The conspiracy cases are
against Builders' Exchange officials.

promptly, but one should remember to use
even the most perfect lemedies only when
needed. The best and most simple and gen
tle remedy is the Syrup of Figs, manufac
tured by the California Fig Syrup Co.
