IS IT CONSTITUTIONAL?
Tho Local Option Law Held
to, bo Unconstitutional
in Some Quarters.
In the issuo of the Loxlngton Intel
llgencer of August (itli, Cup Lesseuor
makes quite an exhaustive argument
on the unconstitutionality of the
Local Option law, which, as far as Hay
county la concerned, arises to be
question of considerable Importance,
The grounds on which this argument
is based is a simple one and one that
Is easily understood. It Is claimed
that tho state constitution makes the
legislature the law making power, and
this body cannot delegate this power
bock to the people. Tbe Intelligencer
We believe the law to be uucouatl
tutlonal, and we think the gentlemen
agree with no.
When this newspaper was advocat
ing the passage of the railroad legisla
tion known as House Rill No. 020,
Judge X. Ryland, while he was with
the people In their desire for leglsla
tive action, doubted the wisdom of that
law beouuse In i.ndiukctly delegated
to tbe railroad commissioners the pow.
eri of the legislature, and was emphatic
In bis assertion and defense of the
principal of law Involved. Judge
1 oung expressed, somewhat less em
phatlcally, similar views, and it is our
Impression that Mr. Alexander did so,
too, though our recollection as to that
I not to vivid. The frlendt of rail
road legislation admitted the law, but
they thought they bad successfully
eroded It. In the Wood Local Option
Dill tbe unbroken line of decisions by
the supreme court on that point Is fla
grantly set at defiance, without at
tempt at compromise or evasion.
That law provides that upon peti
tion by one tenth of the qualified vot
ers of a city or town, as the case may
be, tbe county court shall order an
election by the people, and that if the
voters shall vote in favor of the
law, Til KN AND IN THAT OA8E it Shall
go Into effect and be operative.
In the case of State, I'laintifT In
error, vt. Field, Defendant In Error,
Mo. 520, the dootrinet that cover
this subject were to clearly defined
that tbe decision hot grown to be one
of the most familiar In tbe history of
Missouri jurisprudence. We cannot,
of course, give them in full, but we
shall quote enough to make clear what
wo held by the court. The opinion
waa rendered by Judges Hamilton R.
Uamble, William Scott, and John F.
Ryland, the honored father of Judge
Xeuopbon Ryland. They said:
Tbe constitution of the state, after
declaring, that "the powers of govern
ment shall be divided iuto three de
partments, each of which shall be cou
UOcd to a eparato ungiaiTOcj," pro
ceed to vest the leiriHlativA novAr itf
the government in these words: "The!
Kfi.iMi v fMwar mail o. VW(M
general assembly' which shall consist
of a senate and house of representa
tives." Tbe constitution of each bouse
of the general assembly is provided for
in the constitution, me qualification of
the members, and of the electors who
choose them; the mode in which bills
shall be passed and authenticated is
also directed, and the machinery Is
complete for the exercise of the legis
lative power conferred upon the gen
eral assembly. Tbe power thus con
ferred is tbe power to make laws, aud
the exercise of the power is entrusted
to bodies of men, who are supposed to
be selected by the great body of the
people entitled to vote, because of their
prudence, wisdom and Integrity. The
laws to be passed form "the rule of
civil conduct, commanding what Is
right and prohibiting what is wrong,"
aud that rule derives lis force from the
fact, that it is the will ot the whole
people expressed by their authorized
representative, in the forms provided
by tbe constitution, aud on subjects or
questions on which the representatives
have been entrusted to act. This pow
er, thus reaching every citizen, in
every relation and every Interest, Is to
be regarded as a sacred trust, which is
to be exercised by those to whom It
has been committed, and every citizen
has a right to demand, that tbe rule
for his oonduot shall be established by
that body, in which be, with bis other
fellow-citizens, have vested the power.
In the case of I'arker vs. The
Commonwealth, V Uarr, 507, the ques
tion came before the supreme court of
Pennsylvania, whether an act giving
to the citizens of oertalu counties, the
power to deoide by vote, whether the
sale of vinout or spirituous liquors
should be ooutinued within such coun
ties, and imposing a penalty for the
tale of such liquors, where a majority
of the votes had been against suoh sale,
was constitutional or not ? Upon this
question a very long and able opinion
was given uy jur. justice isms, in
which, after a review of the history
and character ot our constitutional
representative government, he ex
amines the extent of the grant of "the
legislative power to a geueral assembly,
to consist of a senate aud bouse ot
representatives." After settling the
extent ot the grant, be proceeds to
show that the legislative power and
the responsibility lor its correct exer
cise, is with the geueral assembly, and
mat iney cannot, oonaisteniy with
their obligations, delegate It to ant
other persons: whether it be to other
individuals or a portlonof the people,
or the whole collected mass of the peo
ple or tne itaia. applying me princi
ples thus declared to the law then uu-
der consideration, it is held to be un
constitutional and void, although it
was said to be a law whloh euaairnd
the feelings, and had the sunrxnt of a
large numoer or tne nest and most in
fluential citizens. " ltlscleurly
shown, that tbe power, thus committed
by the people iuto the hands of their
constitutional representatives, is not
to be delegated to others not trusted
by the people; nor is it within the con-
temptation ot tbecoiistilutlou, that the
representative shall attempt to yield
up the power to any portion of the
If this it good law, and we think
Messrs. Ryland, Young aud Alexander
will soaroely dispute it, the Wood
Local Option Bill it unconstitutional
void and of no account, and to be per
fectly ingenuous the gentlemen should
have to stated .
To oonllrm our readers in the opinion
that it is the law we will quote from
the B2d Mo. H 18H, Wugner, judge,
rendering the opinion. There was. as
above, a strong court then. Judges
Wagner, Vories, Nupton, Shorwood
and Hough, Tblt was a case In which
tbe vitality of stock laws, submitted
to votes ot the people, wot concerned.
Judge Wagner held:
Vj the constitution, ot tbf State
theTeglatative power is vested lu tl
general assembly, composed of tli
senate and house of representatives.

thority in the enactment of laws, and

Hut a law may be passed which is coin.
plete in lUelf, to Uke efTect in a future
contingency, or upon the happening of
an event. The will of the
legislature must be expressed in the
form of a law bv their own act. If It
is left to the contingency ot a popular
vote to pronounce whether It shall
take euect.lt is not the will ot the law
makers, but tho voice of their constit-
uenta.whleh moulds the rule of action,
If the vote is In the alllrmatlve it Is
law: it in the nogltlve it is not law,
and thus the people are permitted un
lawfully to resume the right of which
they nave ui vented themselves, by a
written constitution, to declare by their
own direct action what shall be law
Our form of srovernment Is
a nomocracy, out II is representative
democracy. It Is Impracticable for the
people to assemble in muss to make
laws, hence the power was delegated
to representatives chosen tor that pu
pose. It is not onlv the rtsht of Um
rprreutaUvwi,whsa auembled In the
legislature, to make laws. but it Is the
duty to do so. When the neoDle.
through the oonstltutlon.delegated the
law-masing power to the legislature,
it conferred an authority and imposed
a duly which could not be exercised by
any ovner oouy 01 men. i nereiore,
every law. to have any bindlug force
or vunuity, must, when it emanates
from the legislative body, have the
form and character of a oomolete en
actment. It must operate by virtue of
uie legislative autuonty, ana not ae-
pnna upon popular action or tbe peo
pies suffrages for its vitality. If the
law is regularity enacted according to
uie prescrioea rorras or legislative
procedure, it mav wen im a iuwaci to
depend upon contingencies for Its ope
ration upon olossee or localities, but
It cannot be made to depend for its ex
istence upon snv other than the letrls-
In this decision all of the Judgea con
curred exoept Judge Vories, who was
sick and absent, and who Is on record
elsewhere at holding still more radical
views in tho same direction. The reas
oning of the court is unanswerable. It
is the law. The only general lawt to
be submitted to a vote ot the people to
be decided, which have been upheld by
the courts, are at come from the legis
lature complete, bearing the declara
tion that they go Into effect from and
alter tbelr passage or by the act of the
legislature itself. There It neither
such a provision nor the pretense of
one In the Wood Local Option Law,
and it ia,consequently .unconstitutional
void and of non-effect. We understand
that Judge Xenophon Ryland answers
this by saying, that tupreme courts
frequently reserve themselves. Not
In cases where tbe principle of law is
so well established as In this one ; and
how can he desire that this should be
done in order to secure a law of doubt
ful expediency In other directions.
when the reversal would be at tbe to-
oridce ot a decision of law which has
probably done more to odd to the legal
fame of bis distinguished father than
It Is cot for us to account for the
I manner in which the legislature made
suoh a serious blunder. All that we
have to do is to consider the act at we
Und It. That body might have given
us local option In two ways that would
have stood the test of the oourts : 1.
by passing an act like the township
organization law, 65 Mo., 2'JS, a general
law which took effect from and after
Its passage, and was thus perfect
Upon such a law the people could have
voted, not to create the luw.but to put
themselves under its provisions. Such
a law would not have delegated legis
lative authority to the counties, and
would not have been held to be un
constitutional, i. Or the legislature
oould, upon petition of a majority of
the citizens of a county, pass a special
law In regard to intoxicating liquors.
