TUKVr.TonD nKLIKH HILL.
When on the first of Juno last President
Grant vetoed tho bill for tho relief of Dr
I. Milton llest, tho mcssago wat referred
to tho eonato committca on claims. To
day Sonator Howe, who Is its chairman,
mado ii report from that committee,
strongly In opposition to tho veto, Tho
report nays tho objections of tho president
wro not based upon tho ground that tho
act Is unconstitutional or inconsiderately
pasted, and that noithor ol theso objec
tion could bo woll urged against it. Tho
constitutional authority of congress to
provide foe tho payment of private claim
cannot well bo denied. Thn uct In ques
tion was passoij aftor caroful consideration.
Some statesmen and jurist have main
tained that tho proper uso of tho voto
powor wai limited to cures of unconstitu
tional ond rash legislation, but
tho toxt of tho constitution
a woll ns tho usago of tho government
amotions broader uso of tho power. Thorn
can bo no doubt that tho president may
interpose hi voto to tho passagn of "any
bill, however constitutional, and however
maturely It may bo considered by tho
logUlaturo, and tboro can bo no doubt that
whon ho docs interpose hi veto it can
only -bo ovorcomo by a concurronco of
two-third of each house of congrws.
Thus in our governmental system, too
negative of tha president counteract j
voto cf one-sixth of ach houo ofcongrein, ,
With tho assent of tho president n ma
jority of each houso can enact a law.'but
against his dissent two-thirds arc required.
Since, therefore, tho executive voto par
alyzes in largo a portion of
legislation, It would teem it
ou-;ht not to bo Interposed oxeept
upon substantial and wolLcoruldered
grounds, and it would iseom quite evident
ir the executive assumes tho task with,
Recording to Kuropean custom. Tho call
