Fortieth Year No 31Prlce Five Cento
OGDEN CITY UTAH FRIDAY EVENING FEBRUARY 4 1910 Entered no Second Clans Matter at the Potrtofflce Oad lltoU
Senator Rayner Say
I There Is No Constitu
L tional authority
Washington Fob Admitting that
he had given no consideration to tho
merits of tho postal savings hank bill
t and declaring that he was not in
fluenced by tho banking Interests
Senator Rayner today addressed the
t sonate in opposition to tho measuro
I on purely constitutional reasons
I have not he said been able
to find any constitutional ground
r whatever for this measure No one
who has read the constitution of the
r United States will contend for a mo
ment that It comes under any of the
I cxprcee powors of the instrument
and the utmost thnt will be claimed
P for it I suppose that under the 18th
clause of section S of article 1 It Is
necessary nnd proper law to carry
I into execution tho delegated powers I
I have searched in vain for any decis
t ion sustaining this contention It IR
not a law necessary and proper to
carry into execution tho clause which
gives congress tho power to borrow
money on the credit of tho United
States because this enactment does
t not purpoflo to bo for any such pur
Conceding that the government has
a right to organize a bank as an In
strumentality of government ho con
tended that no such purposes were
I embraced in tho pending legislation
II Ho also argued against any possible
I contention that tho proposed law was I
authorized by tho constitutional pro I
I vision regarding postofllco
Mr Rnjner took up a statement
made by Sir Burkett that authority
I Is found for the legislation under the
f general welfare clause H0 declared
f that there is no general welfare clause i
t in tho constitution as an independent I
I grant of power that no text writer
no commentor and no court has over
t jinnonncod the proposition that Sen
ator Burkott contended for
I know constitution under tho
last administration was In a state of
I collapse continued Mr Raynor Up
on a number of occasions upon this
floor I attempted to show her It re
ceived blow after blow until It was
almost sent staggering to Ito grave
The predecessor of our present presi
dent whatever also he may 4have
f been was not a student of the con
I stitution he did not care for KB re I
strictions and did not consider him I
self bound by its limitations We I
have an occupant of that ofllco now I
who Is thoroughly familiar with tho
landmarks of his power who with his
judicial temperament not only will
hold himself In equilibrium but pro
poses to hold in proper noise and bal
ance the chocks and safeguards of
1 governmental power
f Ho has never said in his message
1 to us under what grant of constitu
t tional powor ho has proposed this 1m
I jiortanL legislation One thing I feel
euro of and that is that he will nov
fr regard tho general welfare clause
of the constitution as an independent
grant of power Such an interpreta
tion as this would convert us Into a
centralized government of Inherents
and unlimited functions would sweep
to oblivion tho reserved rights of tho
states would render the enumerated
powers of the charter absolutely su
perfluous and unnecessary would
give congress the right to pass any
legislation whatever that in HB ar
bitrary discretion or from political
motives it may determine upon and I
In my opinion destroying the auton
omy of tho states and obliterating the
Inviolable decision of the tenth amend I
ment would make such a gaping
wound In tho heart of tho constitu
tion that tho blood that gave it life
would wither In its veins

day since the beginning of the trial
of Mrs JeannetteFord on the charge
of blackmailing was In Utti court room
when tho trial wao resumed today
With Charles L Warrlner the chief
witness out of the way the road IB
open for a speedy termination of the
trial although several more witnesses
have been summoned
Among the witnesses subpoenaed
ie Ida Brockway former stenographer
In the office of the cashier of the cus
tom house hero and estranged friend
of Mrs Ford Varriner In his testi
mony declared ho believed Mies
Brockway had learned through Mrs I
Ford that he was short in his ac
counts and that exposure followed
Frank Couden cashier of the cus
tom house in this city also has been
summoned as a witness He was in
the same office with Miss Brockway
and according to Warrlnor learned
of the shortage through her and in
formed the high officials of the Big
Four railway
Another witness to be heard is
Frank Comstock who Warriner tes
tified was short 10600 when ho turn
ed the local treasurers office of the
Big Four over to him
Mrs Anne E Jackson a negress
a dressmaker was called as the sec
ond witness for tho state when tho
morning session opened Sho fluid that I
in 1901 sho sawed for Mrs Ford
Ida L Brockway then was asked

ply In fact she was extravagant
Asked about the sources of the
funds Miss Brockway added
She had no means of support that
I know of Mrs Ford never took me
Into her confidence
Ior Feb 3rd Mr Ballinger said ho
had followed tho suggestion of tho
committee but that it would require
several days for his attorney to reach
Washington and some additional time
to familiarize himself with the case
Mr Balllngor said he had been of
lie opinion that by notjhavlng counsel
present he would be assisting the
committee or at least would not bo
hampering It In making u full Inquiry
of its own
Mr Ballingor might have good and
sufficient reasons for withholding
this evidence from examination by
counsel representing Glavls but in
view of his statements that he want
ed a free and full Investigation ho
thought It incumbent upon him to fur
nish the evidence in installments as
fast as it could bo collected
Chairman Nelson said it had been
decided at the executive session to re
quest Secretary Ballinger to furnish
tho evidence In installments and that
ho would write him a letter to that
