nrtrnnizations have made similar requests
The importance of this-matter demands
a full presentation of the facts to the
voters o tlie state and a statement of
mv conclusions. ' '
-The constitution of Vermont' has had
the sanction of use and approval for more
than 140 years. Caretul : provision is
mnde in that constitution to insure ex
tended consideration and deliberation in
making changes allecting . its provisions
and for direct submission to the freemen
of the state. The legislature may pro
pose changes, but section 6 of chapter z
of the constitution, providing the powers
of the legislature, says : 'They shall have
no power to add to, alter, aboiisii or in-
fringe any part or mis cousuiuiwu.
'Section 67 of the same chapter de-
nl.rr-9 tVmt tb is constitution 'ought not to
Ik? violated on any pretence whatsoever.
The proposed 19th amendment to tne ieu
orfil fonstitution would in fact, if
adonted. make radical changes in the
constitution of Vermont and in our form
'Tlio nr.iv!"ions for chanffes in the
federal constitution, to which we Ver
nionters are loyal subscribers, are in con
flict with those laid down in the consti
tution of Vermont. The federal consti
tut ion provides that proposals for change
therein shall, if favorable action is taken
thereon by the congress, be submitted to
the legislatures of the several states for
tht ir action, and the supreme court of the
United States' has in a recent decision
Hawks vs. Smith, June 1st, 1920, de-
The referendum provisions of state
constitutions and statutes cannot be ap
plied, consistently, with the "const itu
tio-i of the United States, in the ratitica
tion or rejection of amendments to it.
'This decision leaves the people at tne
mercy of any group of men, who may
lol bv a proposal for change to the federal
coi'stitution through congress and then
through the legislatures of the states.
'in the face of this situation, I am
nsked to call the legislature of Vermont
into extraordinary session, not lor tne
purpose of debating, considering, deliber
ntirnr on the Question at issue, but witl
a maioritv of its members pledged be
for. hand and in private, as I understand
it. to ratify the proposed amendment.
"If the "people of Vermont, in accept
ing a place yn the union of states, inad
vertently lost in whole or in part the
right of self-government and conferred
it 0:1 a .legislature, there is all the more
rea on why a legislature should not pass
unojaquestion which has arisen inep
Xliif r election and upon which their con
stituents have had no opportunity to' cx
pre: s themselves.
'The people are the supreme governing
power of the state, and the legislators,
under our constitution, are their repre
sentatives and responsible to the people,
yet it is now proposed that their legisla
ture take action without the sanction of
the people and in direct invasion of their
"For this reason, I am calling to the
attention of the voters of Vermont this
all-'.inortant proposed change in our con
stitution," It may be forced upon us by
the action of other states; nevertheless
it is our duty to know what the attitude
pf our senators and representatives is
upon this subject and to elect men who
represent our wishes.
'Candidates for the legislature of 1921
should be required to declare their posi
tion on the subject without delay.
it is evident from the reading of the
constitution of Vermont that when the
framers of it accepted in 1791 a place in
the union of states they had 110 idea that
they were signing away liberties which
had been boldly proclaimed and zealously
gua 'ded up to that time. .
"We must now either remodel our own
constitution to couform with the man
date of the supreme court of the United
States, or the constitution of the United
States must be amended to provide for
a referendum to the free men of the sev
eral states before .amendments to that
constitution become elFeetive. As it
stands and is interpreted by the supreme
court today, the federal constitution
threatens the foundation of free popular
"The 17th amendment, providing for a
federal income tax, was lobbied through
congress and the state legislatures by
federal agents. The 18th amendment for
federal prohibtion was forced through
congress and the state legislatures by a
powerful and irresponsible organization,
operating through paid agents with un
limited funds. It is now proposed to
force through the 19th amendment for
woman suffrage in the same manner and
also without the sanction of the free
men. 'i have been asked to overlook these
considerations as a matter of party ex
pediency, but this is a matter of prin
ciple, not expediency and the party that
invades a well-established principle of
popular government will, suffer,,, in ..the
end. i . "
"Our constitution was framed to insure
our liberties, not to proscribe them., It
means 'what it 'says The. Tightsof the
people thereunder must be maintained. I
y ill never be a party to .any proceeding
which proposes to change, tne organic Jaw
of the state Without' the consent of the
people. -,''-" r '
"I propose to go and come aS'my duty
calls me, both --within and without the
state of Vermont, and if any other state
officer sees fit, regardless of our funda
mental law and his oath to support it,
to take action contrary to the terms of
this proclamation, he will do so on his
own responsibility ancf be answerable to
the freemen of the state."
