this fairwill be felt for some time to come, not only by the fanners
who came here to listen and leam, but by the people and business
.men of the city. This fair brought a large number of people here
an^ naturally they became better acquainted with the city and its
'people, and that acquaintance will eventually warm into friendship.
As a direct result we believe that all have felt the benefits of the
'fair. To be sure the hotels and restaurants, together with the the
iatres and other places of amusement derived the greatest financial
from the fair, but in turn the merchants also received a
haiefit. All in all it was a good fair, and we believe that all are
satisfied with the results.

Representative Hendrickson has introduced a bill in the North
Dakota legislature providing that no statute shall be declared un
constitutional except by the unanimous vote of the supreme court.
Representative Divet denounced the proposition as a dangerous
jpke, and a project tending to upset one of the fundamental princi
pals of American government, that of the majority rule.
Let us look for a moment at this matter of majority rule. The
members of the state legislature are placed in their positions by
the votes of a majority of the voters of the state. Presumably
tkey represent the preponderant sentiment of the state. The leg
islature enacts a law to meet a general and well understood demand
The presumption is that the laws enacted by the legislature are
constitutional. The legislature and the courts are equally crea
tures of the constitution. They derive their authority from the
same source, and each body has been charged with certain duties.
Both are expected to perform those duties regularly and consti
The question, therefore, whether an act of the legislature is
or is not an academic question, placed before the deciding tribunal
iii an even-handed manner, with no greater weight on one side
than on the other. The law is, prima facie, constitutional, for it
h^s been passed by a body created by the constitution for that
purpose, and the work of that body, in the absence of overwhelm
ing evidence to the contrary, must be accepted as regular.
But, under the present practise, we reach some curious results.
A case is taken before the supreme court of this or some other
state, or before the federal supreme court. The constitutionality
ofta law is called in question. A majority of the members of the
board less one, decide that the law is constitutional, and state
their reasons. An equal number of judges are certain that the law
is unconstitutional and state their reasons. The remaining judge
has the power to decide. He disagrees with all the others so far
as their course of argument is concerned, but he, like two or three,

or more of the others, holds the law unconstitutional, though on
grounds entirely different from those already advanced. Under
exactly those conditions scores of laws have been declared uncon-:
stitutional, laws which have been enacted by the body created by
the constitution for that purpose, and held to be constitutional by
one or more of the judges of the highest court. But, because there
happened to be a majorityof the court, some of whose members
objected to the law on one ground, and some on another, the leg
islation has been thrown into the discard.
The plan requiring unanimous condemnation of a law by the su
preme court before it can be declared unconstitutional is not an
attack on the rights of the majority. It is a measure for the pro
tection of the majority in its right to govern. The suggestion
for such a law is not peculiar to our state. It has been made else
where frequently, and the passage of the federal law of like char
acter has been urged on congress. It ought to be the rule every
where. The final decision as to the constitutionality must rest
with the court. That is one of the things for which courts were
created. But it is not too much to require that so long as leigsla
tive acts are held to be regular, even by one judge of the highest
court, the law shall stand.—Grand Forks Herald.
