reads It with a distinct Impression that the learned Justice who wrote the
opinion did not believe in his own course of reasoning.
It would have been more direct and manly, and would have commanded
more respect for the court, to have flatly overruled the case of Loughborough
vb, Blake than to have attempted a distinction between it and the case at bar.
Which Is too flimsy to mislead any lawj er who is entitled to his license.
GRAVER DANGERS AHEAD.
The friends of the administration are congratulating themselves much too
early, If they think the decision rcliees them from the embarrassment of con
stitutional restiiction iu dealing with our new possessions. They will And the
r Question of taxation one of the least among the perplexities of a colonial policy:
and they can only carry out their plans
aside other and graver constitutional provisions.
FACE TO FACE WITH IMPERIALISM.
The court Is apt to And that the next case will not furnish it with a subter
fuge like the words "The United States" to which they can limit constitutional
guarantees. They will be compelled booncr or later to meet the proposition as to
whether'Congresscan enact laws for these Insular possessions which are con
trary to the express inhibitions of the Constitution. If the court should decide
that Congress cannot do this, the entire scheme of colonial government will fail
from a lack of efficient force. On the other hand. If the court shall decide that.
In dealing with these islands, Congress is not bound by direct and positive re
strictions of its powers, that we have reached an end of 4he time-honored doc
trine that this Government Is one of limited and enumerated powers, we are
faee to face with the proposition, that the power of the American Congress over
unrepresented islands is as absolute and untrammeled as the power of the Brit
ish Parliament aver the colonics of Great Britain.
The decision standing by itself will become the source of endless mtochier
and confusion. , But its barm will not end there. Following so closely upon the
decision in.the-lncome tax case it will inevitably convince the people that the
Bapreme Court of the United States holds the laws of Congress), coactltaUoBal or
j MnnntltTitlnnil. according as it deemajthem wise or anwiae.
with that fellow, yon look like a
W. BAILEY.
REPUBLIC SPECIAL.
Washington, May 28. I do not think
that the decision of the United States
Supreme Court In the Porto Rico cases
removes the Issue from the domain of
party contention.
The decision is certainly bad enough,
but It is not so bad as the administra
tion papers arc claiming. It does not, as
I have won it claimed, establish the doc
trine that the power of Congress, In
dealing with these new possessions, Is
Independent of all constitutional limita
tions. Indeed, the decision expressly
negatives that contention and reaches its
remarkable conclusion that the Forakcr
law is constitutional by holding that
these new possessions are not a part of
the United States within the rule of uni
formity prescribed by the Constitution
for the levy of Imposts, duties and ex
cises.
RECORD FOR' WEAKNESS.
Of all the weak arguments that ever
emanated from a great court, the at
tempt to save the Foraker act from the
rule laid down by Chief Justice Mar
shall in the celebrated case of Lough
borough vs. Blake, the opinion rendered
by Mr. Justice Brown must take the
lirst place. It is so Inconclusive and so
strained as to leave every lawyer who
for governing these islands by setting
bunch of waste paper."

New York, May 28 Old Missouri tvas well
repreented at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel
to-night ut the ln.iURUral dinner of the Mis
souri Society of New York. Son ot that
State who ai non residents of the Metrop
olis and live within walking distance ot
each other greeted friends whom they have
not met since the) left their nathe roll.
It was a representative Katlierln? of men
In all walks of life, and they sreetnd i-nth
other with a cordiality which bespoke well
for the society which was launched.
The ballroom of the Wnllorf-Atorlt was
brilliantly Illuminated and decorated In
honor of the eent.
Gnu Thomas, Tfinxtninolnr.
Mr. Augustus Thomas acted as toTstmns
ter of the ceremonies He explained the
purpose of the assemblage and declared
that If Ohio, North Carolina and othr
States had any license to hac a society In
New York, there wa3 no re-ison wh Mis
souri should not hae one. Missouri, he
said, was the birthplace of the glnrickey,
and that of Itself was sufllclent reaon why
they should have a society. He dnelt upon
the virtues of the Missouri mule, without
which no war could be successfully carried
on, and said that while other States could
boast ot their camasback ducks and other
things, Missouri could brag of her mules.
Telegram From I). It. Frnnrln.
Mr. Thomas kept his auditors In good hu
mor for fully fifteen minutes, after which
he Introduced the Reverend Ralph Walker,
who read a telegram of regret from former
Governor Francis of Missouri, who was un
avoidably absent. The dispatch was as fol
lows: St. Louis, May 2S, 1901. To Burton
Thompson, Secretary, Missouri Society,
New York: I cannot express how deeply
I regret my Inability to attend the Mis
souri dinner, to be given in New York this
evening'. It Missourians will show the
bad taste to leave the state of their na
tivity or their adoption, and settle else
where, I know ot no better selection for
a home than the Metropolis of the coun
try, which furnishes such great' oppor
tunities for the employment of their en
ergies and'the exercise ot their talents. I

SOME CHOICE HUMOR.
Its population as the roster of your mem
bership shows Missouri has contributed.
Missourians at home are pleased to
learn, nlthough J oil have left the borders
of the grand old State, that you still cher
ish a filial affection for Its scenes and Its
people, and propose to keep alive and
manifest that feeling by the formation of
a Missouri Society In New York. I ap-
predate fully the compliment you pay me
in Inviting me to be your guest at jour
first dinner, and vou need no assurance to
convince vou that nothing short of Im
perative duty at home prevents me from
being with jou.
Imperative Datlea at Home.
The movement Inaugurated several years
ago for the celebration of the centennial
of the Louisiana Purchase, and which,
after months of discussion, assumed the
shnpo of an International Exposition, Is
Just now taking definite form. As I am
Its President, my absence from home
would cause a delay In the work of organ
ization, which the short time at our dis
posal will not permit. The Executive
Committee, whose duty It will be to select
a site, will be named this evening. As I
am 'ts ex-olflrlo chairman, I have ar
ranged that we shall begin to-morrow to
Inspect the sites We shall then Imme
diately call to our assistance the first
talent of the country. In order that we
may make an Expo'ltlon. of which not
only Missourians, but all Americans will
be proud.
We have secured a fund of tIGOCO.OOO. to
which the State of Missouri has added
Jl.000.000 for the State exhibit. The Amer
ican Institute of Architects, the American
Association' of Sculptors, the American
Association of Landscape Architects, the
American Association of Mural Painters,
and the Architectural League of America
all have terdered their services to nld us
In making our Exposition a glorious suc
cess. Plans of Great Moment.
We shall spare neither money nor time
to prepare a fitting celebrntlon of the
grandest acquisition of territory recorded
In history, and to properly commemorate
an occurrence In the life of the American
Republic which has made possible the
glorious career of our country, and with
out which neither the wealth, nor the
grandeur, nor the liberty, which we value
so high!, would have been possible.
This Is a great undertaking upon which
we have entered, and the nearer we ap
proach Its consummation the grander Its
proportions become and the worthier Its
objects appear. The patriotic men and
women who have devoted their time and
thought to the enterprise are moved by no
elflsh motives, and expect no reward
other than the consciousness of duty per
formed for the advancement of the entire
country and for the promotion of the wel
fare of humanity.
evr York Mlaaonrlana Can Help,
Your Missourians, located In the com
mercial metropolis of the Western hem
isphere, and In what will soon become. If
It Is not now, the financial center of the
world, can render great assistance In the
work we have In hand. We expect the
Empire State, as well as the New Eng
land States, and every State and Territory
In the Union, and every publication there
of to be represented at the Louisiana Pur
chase Exposition, which will be not onlv
an epitome of the unparalleled develop
ment of the Loufslana Territory for 100
ears past, but a portrait of the civiliza
tion of all the ages and of the progress of
the world.
Our First Vice President, Mr. C. H.
Spencer, will be with you this evening,
and I bespeak for him as a representative
citizen of Missouri, an honored official of
Caatlaae, Facet Two, Colaaaa rive.

Intf nnd afternoon being conumed In the
work. I'rlday the remaining site will be
visited.
The,uggestIon of the Tower Grove Park
site hap not boen taken teriouslv by the
World's Talr authorities, because of the

Grove Park and Shaw's Garden far the Fair
site.
The vWts of the Executive Committee

Providence will be provided by ndvocates of
the Rite to take the committee down the
