Congressman Robinson's measure
for the suppression of anarchism, when
in the form of assassination of the
governor of a state, provides that when
a fugitive from justice in one state is
not surrendered by the governor of the
state where he takes refuge, on re
quisition lawfully issued, the re
quisition may be delivered to the
United States marshal of the dittrlct
who shall forthwith return the fugi
tive. This remedy would probably be
effective. The only ditliculty now is
that the law puts theduty of returning
the fugitive on the governor of the
state, who is not a federal otlicer, and
who, therefore, cannot be required by
the federal courts to execute the law.
