'Miiplennil Ullninn CONGRESS IS SUPREME, The Supieme Court has handed down the long-expected decisions In tj.e Insular cases. The Court has sub mitted majority and minority reports, the former having to he accepted In the settlement of the questions Involved. From the majority reports it is easily deduced that Porto Rico and the Phil ippines are "territory" of the United States to which such provisions of the Constitution as are applicable must be applied; and that Congress alone has the power to apply them. Further, that until Congress does apply them, the President, within the limits of the Constitution and as commander-in-chief of the army and navy, can govern the islands as possessions acquired by the war power, and that his authority will extend until Cingress shall make the Islands Integral parts of the repub lic The majority reports thus sustain the position of the Administration on these points. Regarding the imposition of the tar iff dutles'on imports from Porto Rico, the Court makes this distinction: As the Constitution extended to the Island with Its acquisition, it ceased to be "foreign" territory and could not be treated as such in the imposition of duties, the Constitution providing that "all duties, imports, and excises Bhall be uniform throughout the United States." When, however, under the Constitution which gives more power to Congress "to dispose of and make all neeou- rules and regulations re specting the territory and other prop erty of the United States," the Foraker act was passed, duties were legally im posed, though the island was not for eign territory. Therefore, all duties collected on impoits from Porto Rico before the enactment of the Foraker law are illegal, and must be returned, 1nit all duties collected since the pas sage of that act are legal, Congress not having exceeded its authority. Thus the Administration loses on the question of tariff. But this question of tariff is only a minor one among all those raised re gaiding the Administration's position concerning the islands acquired by th-? war with Spain. The President's in terpretation of his constitutional pow eis to govern them remains practically undisturbed. Territorial expansion is obstructed in no way, shape or man ner. The development of what Chief Justice Marshall called "the 'American Empire" is really given greater lati tude. Whatever of "imperialism ' there may be in extending the domin ion of the United States lies in the power of the supreme Congress which jshall determine the extent of the ap plication of the Constitution to lands and their peoples coming under Ameri can nile through war. conquest, treaty cr purchase, so long as Congress act within the limits of the Constitution. The majority decisions of the Court have given the greatest possible Impe tus to the "forward movement" for the creation of a "Greater America, terri torially, politically and commercially.

INTERESTING CENSUS FACTS. Mr. W. R. Morrlam, Director of the Census, has written an Instructive re view pf the great work of which he assumed ehnrge in March, 1899, anil which is still going on In certain sta tistical lines. The counting of the peo ple ever' tenth year is a constitutional no-csslty. Congress has enlarged tho scope of tho worn until tho Information to be tabulated covers a larger number of subjects than ever before. Mr. Mer rinm considers the treatment of the census as a merely periodical expe dient, a great mistnke. It would be easier and scarcely more expensive to maintain a nucleus of trained experts to gather statistics nnd supplement this force according to clicumstances. Tho enumeration of Inhabitants must, ot course, be completed in time for Congress to act In the decennial year, but the industrial statistics should bo gathered continually, for their Utilities are constant, -o count the people re quired G5.000 enumerators and 300 su pervisors. The clerical force In Wash ington numbers 3500 and, in addition, 2500 special agents were appointed to collect manufacturing statistics. Trained experts are not easily got to gether, and Mr. Merrram truly says that, under the piescnt temporary sys tem, the service Is handicapped from the start. Fr,om the facts of the present census already Known Mr. Merriam is able to estimate the number of manufacturing and mechanical establishments In the United Stntes at over six hundred and fifty thousand, a gain over 1890 of no less than three hundred and fifty thou sand, or 110 per cent. The results of the census of manufactures. In Mr. Men-lam's language, "will astonish ev en the most optimistic of our citizens." An e..ort will be made to show what combinations of capital have been formed during the last ten years and their effect on the value of labor. It has already been announced that there are G.000,000 farms in the country, in volving about i0 per cent, of the na tional wealth. Next in order will be taken up statistical reports on religion, mining, water, transportation, insur ance, pauperism, crime and other so ciological subjects. Mr. Merriara'K own estimate of the increase of popula tion In the United States is 20 per cent, every ten years for the next two or three decades. Beyond that period he is unwilling to go, though he mentions without dissent an estimated aggregate of 300,000,000 by the year 2000. What impresses Mr. Merriam most in the presenkcensus returns is the tre mendous industrial advance since 1890. "This form of our national wealth," he says, "will increase with a marvelous rapidity. We are now reaching out to the four parts of the globe for mar kets. American Ingenuity and ability showing themselves in this determina tion to take the markets from our com- peiuors in me world's trade." in a country in which the number of man ufacturing and mechanical establish ments has doubled in ten years, the collection of statistics should go on without Intermission. There Is no economy in the present plan of deal ing with experts qualified to get the in formation required by Congress. Even now the taking of the census through out its entire scope consumes a num ber of years. Congress should care fully weigh Mr. Meirlam's suggestions, based on a thorough study of the sub ject and practical experience. VIEWS Taken by the Administration on Supreme Court Disclslons. By Associated Press. Washington ,D. C, June 4. The Su preme Court decisions as viewed by the administration settles, first, that the Foraker act is constitutional; sec ond, that the collection of duties on Porto Rlcan products between the time of cession of Porto Rico and tho passing of the Fcraker act was illegal and must be refunded. These are held to be the main esesntial points of the decisions. Nothing in them is con strued to apply to the tariff situation between tho United States and the Philippines. The conclusions of the cabinet are net based on any know ledge as to prospective Philippine de cisions of the Supreme Couit, though it Is declared that there is little ap prehension as to the finding of that de cision.

The condition of Quarry and High streets, which were gullied out so that tho water overflowed the yards of abutting property owners, came up again for discussion. Mr. Strain fi nally concluded tho talk by moving that the City Clerk bo Instructed to advertlso for bids for the grading of Quarry street from Bank to Sycamore streets. The Clerk was so ordered. Tho gutter between Lord and Maple streets had become stopped up" and water flows over tho sidewalk. Tho Street Commissioner was instructed to open up the ditch. FOR THE ANNEXATION OF 'NOR WOOD.

He asked that Council meet as cpm mittee pf -the whole on Monday after noon at 1 o'clock to visit Norwood. The renuest was agreed to. ' Mr. Lorentz suggested that, the width of two alleys In Emerson Heights be changed fr6rri 20 'to s6 feci wide in order to conform to the width of the colinty road. The change In the plat was sanctioned. Mr. Kerns stated that Janitor Han cock had $1300 or $1400 to his credit In the bank and this sum he wished to formally turn over to the city.

Marsch said that he knew the top' ofj the pier was plumb, as he had made measurements, but he thought the west side pier was lower than It should be. Mi'. Strain said that there was something wrong, but that he was not prepared to make charges yet. In or der to secure a report from a party not interested in the bridge he moved to employ a competent engineer to exf amine and make a report.
