When the Constitution was formed it was
forefren that a majority of ele&on appoint
ed might fail to give their votes to any one
perfoH, and that the House of Reprefenta
tires, voting-by slates, might'fail to give
a majority of votei to either ol the persons
out of whom they .are bound toelett, whe
ther between two. having an equal number
and a majority tff the eleflors; or between
the five highest on the lift, neither having
a majority of the eleflors appointed.
" The necessity of having a President al
ways in being waj obvious. Therefore the
Cooftitution enatted, that " the Congress
mny by law provide for the cafe of remotal,
death, resignation or inability both of the
President and Vice President, declaring what
officer- (hall then aft as President, and such
officer ■ fliaH adl accordingly, until" the dlf
•bility be re.moved or a PrciiJent flmll be
«le&e3." Inpurfuance of this provision
a law wai pasTed on the firfl of March,
179*. by which " the President of the
Senate, pro tempore anil in cafe there be ne
President of'tlie Senate, tlvu the Speaker of
t c House of Ueprefentatives, for the time
being, shall aft as Prilideiu of the United
States, until the difatnlity be removed, or a '
President lliail be elefted."
The Prefidenc and Vice-President beittg
elefted for the tens of four years, com
mencing on the 4th ot' March : they
continue in office no longer than until the
lad morrnnt ef the 3d of March in the
fourth year after the commencement of the
PreGdency, when they are removed from
office by virtu? of,the Conttimtion.
In providing a fucceflbr in the cafe of
removal from office, it is probable the Gon
ftitution contemplated few cases likely to
happen, but the conftitiitionnL removals of
the PreGdent and Vtce-Prefident, which re
rtiovaU were certain to occur at the fame
time every fourth year, and whether the
v»cancies so occuring would be filled up by
an eleftton could not be otherwise than un
But the Cqnftitution autbrfrifes Gongrefs
to provide bylaw for a faccelVor in all cases
of removal of President and Vice-President,
and consequently in the cafe when the Presi
dent and Vice-Prelident shall be removed
according to the conditutional tenure of
their refpeftive offices.
interpretation of the text in the
Conllitution that has been quoted, is to be
maintained not only for the reasons which
have been £iven, but beCause if the words
be at all doubtful, that confiruftioo (hall be
given which is indtfpenfibly necelTary to pre
serve the exigence of the government. To
suppose a cafe when there is no person au
thorised to perform the funftions of the Pre
sident constituted as the Federal Govern
ment is, is to fuppole a cafe when the go
vernment is fufpendetl in its operations thr4>'-
out the Executive department, from the
highell to the lowest officer who Isolds? his
office diiring the pleasure of the President
for the time being.
The Senate is always in existence and will
be competent to aft when there is neither a
PreGdent and Vice-Piefident. On the 4th
of March at the luftant when the Vice-Pre
sident i* removed frain . ffice 1 -v virtue of the
Gonftitucion, the Senate is competent to hold
its feflion and eleft a PreGdent, pro tempore.
