n It isa bloody bill. It is wholly

of the age. It is disgracefu
to the inittitutions of a Republ

the spirit of the times of the Planta

t fundamental right of the Ipeople,
expressly reserved in the Custitu

Government when and how they may

and penalties cruel and inhuman.
It makes an error of political opin

will detect at a moment's glance. that
it seeks to evade the constitutional
definition of treaton against an ac
