GEB. BUCKNER'S DEOLARATIONS,
Gbn. Simon 14. Bucknbr of Kentuck
in his speech accepting the presider
tial nomination of the Natiemal Dem<
eratic Convention at Indianapoli
seems to have been thoroughly in hat
mony with the position taken by At
torney General Harmon and Presider
Cleveland.' He said:
?"The Democratic faith has alwaj
claimed that the United Htatea Go,
eminent is supreme within the limit
of the authority it haa received froi
the states and from she people; tha
it haa a right to go wherever tbat fla
goes, and it is its duty te> enforce th
laws of the land in accordance wit
the powers conferred on it; yet. th
Chicago convention would wipe virtu
ally out of existence* that Suprem
Court which interprets the law, foi
getting that our ancestors in Englan
com batted for hundreds of years to ot
tain a tribunal of justice which wa
free from Executive control.
"They would wipe it out of existenc
and subject it to the control of part
leaders te> carry out the dictates b
the party; they would paralyze thi
arm of the General Government, ane
forbid it the power to protect the live
and prtiperty of its citizens. The con
vention almost in terms placed a Ugh
ed torch in the hands of the incendi
ary. and urged tbe mob to proceee
without restraint to pillage and mur
der at their discretion." (Applause.
This is all that the american citizer
of ce dor has ever charged against thean
aame destroyers of the publio peace
It seems strange that white mer
esnnot appreciate the fact that thia
language made to apply to other citi
aens and other lawless parties in the
West are equally applicable to the
murderous elements of the south.

It seems indeed strange that after al

lould again be preaented.

On reading Attorney GeneraJ Hab
mon'b defense of President Cleve?
land's action in dealing with the Chi?
cago mob would imagine that he was
reading a report made by the Attorney
(-?eneral of President Grant'b cabinet.
And yet Mr. Harmon is standing
squarely upon the broad basic princi?
ples of the constitution itself.
In speaking of the attack made upon
President Cleveland's policy by the
Chicago platform in putting down mob
law, and Mr. Bryan's endorsation ol
the same, he aais*
"Mr. Bryan, in his letter accepting!
the nomination for i'retident by the
Convention at Chicago amplilies th
protest, which that conven*---*". made
? n its platform against -"."oderal inter?

proposed to which they can possibly

are understood to be directed against

forcibly suppressing riotous disorders
which had stopped the carriage of the
mails and interstate commerce and

He strongly emphasizes the Presi?
dent's position when he says:
*'Tbe President took this action not!
only without the request, but in some
instances against the protest of tbe
authorities of the States, in which riots I
occurred, and Mr. Bryan, taking sec-1
tion 4. of article 4, of the Constitution
to be the law on the subject, pledges
himself against any repetition of the
violation thereof, which hisjetter nec?
essary charges. He vindicates the
wisdom of the framers of the Constitu?
tion by declaring that the local au?
thorities are better qualified than the
President to judge of the necessity lor
Mr. Harmon properly remarks :
"This. in. my judgement, isa far
more serious matter thain the money
question or any of the other questions
now before the people, grave as they
all are. Oar government may survive
a wrong decision of these questions,
aod the people may endure for a time
the evila which result from falae sys?
tem of finance and taxation. But it
the President has deliberately disre?
garded the instrument upon which the
Union is founded, by ae,pp*anting the
authority of a sovereign State by arm?
ed forces, a precedent has been made
which threatens our form of govern?
ment While, if a candidate for Pres?
ident may properly pledge himself ir
advance, as Mr. Bryan has done to dc
nothing to protect the pioperty, main?
tain the authority, and enforce tht
lawa of the United States, unless anti
until the officers of another govern
mein requeat or consent, then we real
ly have no Federal Government; foi
a government which is not entirely
free to use force to protect and main
tain Itself in the discharge of itsowi
proper functions, is no government a
Time and again, we haere made Bimi
lar declarations in these columns. I
ls gratifying to note that after all these
years a Democrat, of the most pro
nounced type should see aa his Repub
lican predecessors saw, and shoule
have the hardihood to declare thi
truth and the consummate ability te
ably defend the position his chief oc?
cupies. But how well he defines the
power of states, and answers the cant
ing demagogism of Mr. Bryan !
"The second provision of the Consti
tution to which Mr. Bryan refers is ai
" 'The United States shall guaran
tee to every State in* this Union a Re
publican form of government, ane
shall protect each of them against in
vaaion ; and on application of the Leg
islature, or tdthe Executive (when the
Legislature cannot be convened)
against domestic violence.'"
Mr. Habmon explains it as follows:
"This section plainly refers merel*
to the protection of the States agains"
interference with their authority, law
or property by domestic violence, am
they are wisely made the sole judge
whether and when they need such p.-o
tection. Mr. Bryan betrays a con
sciousness of the limited operation o
thia provision in the expression,'Fed
eral assistance,' in the clause I hav
quoted, but by the express terms o
the Constitution a State has nothin]
to do with the maintenance of the au?
thority or the execution of the laws o
the United States within the territory
of the State. The prevention and pun?
ishment of offenses connected t:*.1
malls, with interstate commerce, ane
with the administration of justice ti
the Federal courts, are committed te
the general government, and tha
alone. Such offenses in nowise men
ace the government of the State with
in which they are committed. There
fore the state cannot require preitec
tion against them. The State has ne
duties to discharge in these matters
Therefore it ean ree-uire no 'Federa
assistance with respect to them. O
eourse. domestic violence often, as ii
the State and Federal authority india
criminately, so that either or botl
may suppress it. And in such cssei
the action of each in maintaining itt
own authority over the subjects com
mitted to it, tends to aid tbe other
But in such cases each is acting in itt
own independent right as a sovereigi
government, and on its own behalf.
Could the explanation be exp'ainee
or the truths stated more self-evi
Then follows biting sarcasm:
"According to Mr. Bryan there ii
somewhere implied in the Constitu?
tion, for it is nowhere expressed, a
prohibition of the use of force by the
United States against persons who,
within tbe limits of a State, may be
successfully resisting its officers snd
completely paralyzing all ita eiperationa

Harmon has put forth
But thp Attorney General clinches
his argument. Here is what he says:
"This Bovereign right of the I
States necessarily follows its officers
md agents everywhere they go, pro?
tecting and maintaining them in the
discharge of their duties. Congress
has accordingly, by section S297 of the
Revised Statutes, authorized the Pr aa

Government" in aid pf State authora
