"The scheme of government devised
by our forefathers was adopted after
most mature deliberation and after the
fullest investigation, and only when
they were convinced that In the distri
bution of the powers of government
the rights of the people would be re
spected. It was founded upon the
theory that the right existed in the
people to make, alter and modify their
form of government, and to this end
the several states In constitutional
convention agreed upon and adopted
a constitution which was the founda
tion upon which this nation rests. But,
as Washington said, 'the constitution
which at any time exists, till changed
by an explicit and authentic act of the
whole people, is sacredly obligatory
Must Obey the Government.
'The further heritage of the power
and right of a people to establish gov
ernment presupposes the duty of
every individual to obey the estab
lished governments.' While the pri
mary object of a written constitution
Is to define governmental powers and
to limit governmental departments,
the overwhelming necessity for such
en instrument is to prevent insidious
caoroachments upon the rights of the
Individual citizen, both from those in
office and from those who by reason
of their wealth and power have an in
fluence far greater than that pos
sessed by the average citizen And so
the constitution of the United States
was regarded bv its framers as an
Instrument of the most sacred import,
an alteration of which could only be
made the people themselves in
whom all ultimate power is vested,

47,000 MINERS MAY RETURN
OHIO WORKERS ARE EXPECTED
TO 0 0 TO WORK.,
That Is Declaration of State President
of UnionDate of Resumption
to Be April 15 or 16.
Columbus, O., Apr. 11.It is very
probable that 47,000 miners who are
now idle in Ohio will resume work
about April 15 or 16, following the con
ference of the miners and operators at
Toledo next Tuesday, declared Wil
liam Green, state president of the min
"It is very probable that the opera
tors and the miners will reach an
agreement at Toledo and that the old
wage scale that was in effect up to
April 1 will be readopted."
President Green said that the min
ers' officials and the operators have
had several conferences and that there
seems to be no hesitancy on the part
of the operators to sign the agreement.
"It will mean the renewal of the
harmonious relations existing between
the four states in the sixth district
that existed since 1898 until the break
came two years ago when the joint
interstate movement was dissolved."
All of the locals will send delegates,
and there will probably be 150 from
Ohio at the conference. A total of
500 delegates for the miners are ex
pected from the four states. The big
question before the assembly will be
the renewal of the wage scale that ex
pired March 31 last and the resump
tion of the mines in this district.

AND FEDERAL ISSUES.
One Judge Cannot ssue a rit. The
Process of Enjoining State Offi
cials Modified Three Jurists to
Hear Each Case.
Washington, April 14.To meet
conflicts between federal courts and
state authorities, such as have arisen
during the past year in Minnesota,
North Carolina, Alabama and other
states, the senate committee on ju
diciary reported a bill directing the
method of proceedure in cases where
an effort is made in the federal courts
to enjoin state officials from enforc
ing state laws.
The bill is a compromise between
measures introduced by Senators
Overman and Bacon and the late Sen
ator Bryan of Florida, and was re
ported by Mr. Overman. It has creat
ed much attention in committee and
is intended not only to lessen the fre
quency of injunctions in such cases
but to modify and soften the process
when it is resorted to.
The bill prohibits any one federal
judge from granting such an injuni
tion, requiring that all applications
for such orders shall be heard by at
least three federal judges, two of
whom shall be circuit judges, while
the third may be either a circuit or a
district judge. It also requires at
least five days' notice to the state au
thorities and grants appeal to the su
preme court of the United States.
Washington, April 14.In a special
message vetoing a dam bill President
Roosevelt warned congress that there
are pending in this session bills which
proposed to give away without price
stream rights capable of developing
1,300,0 0 horse power, the production
of which would equal annually the
production of 25,000,000 tons of coal.
The president holds that compensa
tion should be given.
