It tTill Onee
Wisconsin Legislature The Minnesota
Fusion Ticket Case Argued Political
Washington, Oct. 18. The United States
supreme court, by Chief Justice Fuller,
yesterday affirmed the judgment of the
Michigan supreme court, upholding the
constitutionality of the famous Miner law
providing for the election of presidential
electors by congressional districts instead
of by the state as a whole. The court holds
that the fourteenth amendment did not
limit the right of a state tc fix a mode of
choosing electors. The conceded effect of
the decision is to give a part at least of the
Michigan electoral vote to Cleveland.
Will Pile an Opinion Later.
Chief Just ice Fuller, in announcing the
decision of the court in the case, said that
the court made the announcement at this
time because of an exigency suggested by
counsel requiring early action. Hereafter
the court would file an opinion setting
forth more fully the grounds on which it
had decided the case. In the brief an
nouncement of the decision the court said
that in the case of Mcpherson vs. Blacker
the secretary of state of Mich
igan, in which was drawn in
question the public laws of the
state of Michigan (the Miner law providing
for the election of presidential electors by
congressional districts and for the election
of clectors-at-large by dividing the whole
state in two parts) the supreme court of
Michigan had ruled adversely to the plaint
iff in error upon the validity of the local
law. In so deciding the federal question
was necessary to be passed upon and the
meaning of the constitution and laws of the
United States had li-cn drawn into the
matter because of this federal question.
Wasn't a laical Issue.
The chief justice said that this court
ruled that it has jurisdiction of the case
tinder section revised statutes the
Democrats having raised the point that the
question was one of local law in which the
decision of the state eourt was final. Hav
ing established its jurisdiction in the mat
ter, the court then dashed to pieces the
hope of those vhi hud apjiealed the case
from the Michigan stipttme court by af
firming the decisi.ni oi' tin; .Michigan Court
which hml ruled lh.it the Miner law; iras
' States fan I as T!u y Please.
The chief justice svd that the court
ruled that in view of the l inguavre of the
clause of the constitution--jTot -At- the
state legislatures the right to fleterjliilni .u,(talUtf Hfflth'
Hie Ultri Him ui ciiikishil; p.v:uieni'irn trcve-
ors and. of the contemporaneous instruc
tion, it cannot now Ik? held invalid for
want of power in state legislatures to pass
such a law. "We are clear that the clause
of the first section of article 2 of the con
stitution has not leen changed by the four
teenth amendment, and that the law is not
obnoxious to that amendment."
Colonel Duflii'lil's Argument.
Colonel Duftield, of Detroit, in arguing
the case for the Republicans, had insistii
that the fourteenth amendment established
the citizenship of t he United States when
the state citizenship had heretofore been
supreme, ami that its language forbidding
the abridgement of the privileges of citi
zens had the effect of preventing the states
from chamring the method of choosing
electors then in vogue. The decision
obliterates the last hope that the Miner
law might Ik- invalidated in court, and that
the election in the coming presidential con
test might be decided on the old plan of
giving the whole vote of the state to the
party having a plurality in the state st
large. The opinion was unanimous.
Some Speculative Pigrnrcs.
The effect of the decision and the division
of the electoral vote may be striking if
Xew York and Indiana vote for Cleveland
and the Republicans succeed in wresting
Connecticut or West Virginia from the
Democratic column. If the solid south,
Xew York, Indiana and Xew Jersey voted
for Cleveland and Connecticut for Harri
son, Cleveland would lose bj a tie vote.
Michigan would then throw the decisive
votes in his favor, even if there were only
three of them. The same situation would
exist if Cleveland carried Connecticut and
lost West Virginia. He could not lose
both states and le elected by the people
even with the help of Michigan, unless he
got nine of her fourteen rotes.
Would Throw It into the House.
Republican success in both Connecticut
and West Virginia if they lose Xew York
will come to naught if Xevada and Colo
rado throw their seven votes for Weaver.
The electoral college will then stand: Har
rison, 219; Cleveland. 218; Weaver, 7, and
there would be no election by the people.
The house would elect Cleveland on a vote
by states and the senate would choose R-eid
for vice president.

ALliANT, Oct. 18. Master Workman
Hughes, of the Garment Workers' as
sembly at Rochester, X. Y., is in jail at
that city serving out a sentence for alleged
extortion having used his position to
bleed the clothing makers of Rochester,
so it was asserted and proved to the satis
faction of a jury, which sent him to prison
for the same. The K. of L assemblies of
various cities have taken action in the
matter, demanding by resolution the re
lease of Hughes. The governor has so fur
been firm in his refusal to grant a pardon.
The IlufialA "Application."
Speaking of this matter yesterday the
governor said: "I do not care to discuss
the matter. I don't grant pardons upon
demands, but usually upon evidence." The
governor referred to the application of citi
zens of Buffalo for Hughes' pardon, which
read: "We demand of you as governor of
the state of New York, as the one having
the fall power of pardoning, to pardon at
