to the census ol l'JUU. it linos sur
prising facts of abstention in everv

wholly accounted for by the consider

or by the disfranchisement of negroes
or the criminal class, by invalidism
and other such causes. In all ,500,-

of New York's male adults and 25 per
cent of .New Jersey sr

Now that the argument of the Phil
ippine and Porto Uican cases has
been linished in the supreme court
the public has both sides of the mo
mentous constitutional questions
raised and can form some idea of
what will be the scope and effect of a
decision sustaining either contention,
says the New lork Herald.
Kspecially is the claim of the gov
ernment now otiicially set forth for
the first time by the attorney general
a matter of vital interest. All the
keener must be that interest, as well
as the expectancy with which the
judgment of thecourtwill be awaited
inview of what may well be regarded
as the sensational answers of Mr
Griggs to the numerous pointed
questions s:gnihcantly put by several
justices on the bench, lhe govern
ment s contention that the constitu
tion does not apply to the territories
or insular possessions until expressly
extended by congressional act, . and
hence that the power of congress is
meanwhile absolute everywhere be
vond the states, has been pushed by
critics of that theory to what seemed
to be extravagant if not ridiculous ex
tremes. But no critic has yet gone
further in this direction and none
pointed out more extraordinary con
stitutional possibilities of the conten
tion than the attorney general of the
I nited States in his bold admissions
to the court.
.Why the attorney general was un
able to auswer Justice Harlan's in-
iuirv whether congress might estab
lish titles of nobility is not apparent,
since his other admissions left but one
obvious reply to make.
"Has the constitution ever been ex
tended by congress to Alaska?" quer
ied Justice hite. "Not yet," said
irom which it must follow that if
congress may neglect or refuse for a
third of a tentury to extend the con
stitution to a territory it may neglect
or refuse for a century or forever to
apply it to any of the newly acquired
possessions. If. then, the constitution
does not apply to them of its own
force, they may be kept for all time
bevond the pale of that baic law of
"Do you think, aked Justice Hsr-
lan, "that congress was empowered
to restrict the personal right of citi
zens in the territories?" "Yes," re
plied Mr. Griggs.
lbatisto say, congress anvwnere
outside the I'nited States may abolish
trial by jury; do away with that Ang-lo-Ssxoa
bulwark of liberty, the writ
of habeas corpus: inflict barbarous
punishments; suppress freedom of
speech and press, and deprive any
person of life, liberty or property
without due process of law.

Then ccngress may, if it chooses,

or Hawaii an empire, oligarchy or

Such are the amazing constitutional
possibilities of the contention of the
government as presented by its official
representative, and such must be the
scope of the supreme court s decision
if it shall sustain the theory. It wul
in etiect, proclaim a virtually new
constitution a charter that applies
only to the states and not the national
domain beyond them. It will render
the arbitrary will of congress the su
preme law wherever the constitution
does not extend, and render possibl
a despotic as well as a republican gov
ernment under the American Hag.
The significant questions have been
quoted and others put to the attor
ney-general would seem to imply that
the majority of the court regarded hi
contention as an exceedingly novel
if not astartling, view of theconstitu
tion. It is certainly in striking con
trast with the cardinal principle
maintained by the other side that the
constitution goes with the flag, that
it is supreme throughout the entire
nation and stands as a guaranty of
republican government and bulwark
of personal rights wherever the sover
eigntv of the nation extends, or the
