ooiiatlluto an act of lntaratate oommorce.
Justlce Harlnn'a opinion ln the Cham?
plon caBo prococded entlrely on the the
ory that tho tranamlaalon af lottery tlck?
ets from one Btate to another ls a form
of tntorslatc commerce, because thoy aro
a aubjoct of trafllc and have a monoy
vnluo, and honce that the law was a
regulatlori of IntcrBtate commerce.
Replylna to the contentlon thut the
"intute ln thla caae prohlblts rather th?n
r.gulotea commerce, and that such waa
not the Intention of tho Constitutlon, Jus
tlct Harlan aald:
HAS P1SRFECT RIGHT.
''Are we prepared to say that a pro
vlBlon whlch ia In effect' a prohibltion
of the carriago of such artlcles from
State to State Is not a flt or appropriate
mode for tho rogulatlon of that partlc?
ular kind of commerco? If tho suppres*
Mon of lottery tralllo. carrled on through
Interstate commerco. Is a matter of whlch
Congross may tako cognlzanco and ovor
which Ita power may be exerted, enn It
be posslble that It Is helplcss lo suppross
such trafflo, as carrled on through In?
terstate commerco? Must It tolcroto tho
trafflc and almply regulnto tho manner
In whlch It mny bo carrled on7 Or may
not . Congross, for the protectlon of tho
peoplo of all tho States. nnd undor the
powor to regiilnte Interstate commerce,
devlse such means, wlthin tho scope ot
the Constitutlon, and not prohlbltcd by
It. as wlll drlvo that trnmc out ot com?
merce among the States?
"ll n State. when considering leglalatlon
for the supprosslon of lotterles wlthin
Its own llmlts. may properly tako Into
vlew the ovlls that Inhero ln the ralslng
of money In that modo, why may not
Cnngross, Invested wlth the power to reg
uluto nll commerce among the several
States, provlde that such commerce shall
not bo polluted by tho cnrrylng of lot?
tery tlckets from ono Stnto to another?"
Referrlng to the fnrA that tho law
makes the offenso crlmlnal. he sald:
"Surely It wlll not be sald to be a part
of any one's llberty. as recognlze.l l.y
the supreme law of the land, that he
'ahall be allowed to Introduce lnto com?
merce among the Stntes an element that
wlll he confcssedlylnjurlous to tho publlo
morals."
D1SSENTING OPINION.
Summlng up. Justlce Harlan said: "We
decided nothlng moro In the present caae
than that lottery tlckets are subjects of
trafllc among those who choose to sell
or bOy them; that tho enrriage of such
tlckets by Independent carriere from ono
Stnte nnd another It thereforo Interstnto
commerce; that under Its power to regu
lala commerce among the soveral States
Congress?subject to the Ilmitatlons Im
po's'-d hy the Constitutlon upon the oxer
c'so of the powers granted?has plennry
authorlty over such commerce. and mny
prohlblt the carrlace of such tlckets frorn
State to State and that leglalatlon lo that
ind and of thnt chnracter ls not Incon
sl.stent with any llmltatlon or rostrlction
Imposed upon tho exerclso of the powers
granted by Congress."
Those who Jolned with Justlce Harlan
In sustalnlng the law were Ju?tlces
Brown, Whfte, McKenna nnd Holmes.
Chlef Justlce Fuller and Justlces Brewer,
Shtras nnd Peckham unlted In a dlssent
Intr opinion, dollvcred by the Chlef Jus?
tlce.
Tho Chlef Justlce snld that the naked
qur-stion Involved In tho ra.se is "Whether
tlio prohibltion by Coneress of the car?
riago of loilery tlckets from ono Stato
to anothor hy means other thnn the
malls Is wlthin the powers vested In that
body by the Constitutlon of the Unlted
States." He contended thnt "the lottery
act cannot be broupht wlthin the power
to regulato commerce among the several
States unless lottery tlckets aro nrt'cles
of^commerce or unless the power to reg.
'ilnte Interstate commerce Inelird's 'he
nhsolute nnd excluslve powpr to prohlt.lt
the trsinsportatlon of anythlnir or any
ho'H- frnm one State to another.
"An Invltat'on to dlne or to take a
dr'vo. or a note of Introductlon. all be
come nrtlcles of commerce under lhe rul?
lng of thls ca.se by belng deposlted wlth
an oxpress company for transporUtlon."
Concludlng, he says: "I refi.-ird thls
deolsinn nn Ineonslstent wlth the vlowa
of the frnmer* of the Conbtltutlnn and
of Marshnll. Its great etpoun-lor. Our
form of Rovernment may remain not
