Council or the Board of Freeholders, or
inaybe both, at the next meeting of
these two bodies. It was section 3U
that broke the camel's back, so to
It reads: "Any municipality of this
State may adopt the provisions of tills
act by an ordinance duly adopted by
the governing body of such muni
cipality, or by the petition and vote
of the qualified voters of such mu
nicipality, as hereinafter provided."
In declaring that section unconsti
tutional the court laid down this gen
eral proposition:
"A statute in the nature of a supple
mental charter that is enacted to take
effect upon its adoption by the govern
ing body of a municipality is not a con
stitutionally enacted law.”
As the annexation of Vailsburg to
Newark was consummated by vote of
the Common Council, and not by the
people of Newark, it would appear tlial
the principle established by the court
will have a widespread effect, and may
cause serious complications. It tnay
be construed to apply to many casts
besides that of Vailsburg.
The decision of the court is princi
pally interesting because it affects the
officials and employees who are iti what
has been failed the protected class in
Newark, Jersey City, Bayonne, Kust
Orange. Hallway, South Orange Village
and New Brunswick, which have
adopted tho law by ordinance, and in
the single county of Kssex. The men
in the protected class in moat of the
places mentioned arc of the same po
litical faith as that of the present gov
erning bodies.
500 Olflce-Hnider* Herr.
In Newark and Kssex County there
are some 500 Democratic office-holders,
vtlti'Te the Common Council of tills city
and the County Board of Freeholders
are Republican. Seven of the Republi
can aldermen, however, are opposed to
any wholesale cleaning out of the City
Hall, and, with the Democratic min
ority, they constitute enough to con
trol the Council. In tile Board of Free
holders there is a strong sentiment
ngainst any clean political sweep, ao
that there is no prospect of any im
mediate changes in lncumboncy of
When tho police and firemen are I
taken into consideration, the number
affected in Newark should be placed at
about 1,300, but it Is hardly to be be
lieved that there will be any attempt
to undo any of the civil service, work
In those departments. As a matter of
fact, the old Doremus civil service law,
which provides for a city Civil Service
Commission, to be appointed when
needed, to conduct examinations for
fire and police eligible lists, Is to be
construed as in effect here once more,
now that the Ackerman law’s provi
sions are not.
The present eligible lists for these
departments furnished by the State
Civil Service Commission may, if the
Fire and Police Commissions so desire,
be thrown out and entirely disregarded.
Chief Examiner Gardner Colby of the
Civil Service Commission announced
last night that all municipal examina
tions scheduled by him would be called
off at once. One had been arranged to
take place here on Monday,
The opinion written by Supreme Court
JuBtice Garrison holding that the law
In part is unconstitutional, gives some
interesting citations. In part it roads:
The Supreme Court decision in De
Hart versus Atlantic City (34 Vroom,
page 383) runs direct counter to the
fundamental doctrine of Paterson ver
sus Tho Society, which may be sum
marized to be that the legislative will
may be imposed as law upon munici
palities, but if any other will is to in
tervene between the Legislature and
such municipalities It must be the will
of the people who are to be governed
by such law and not an alien will, even
though It bo that of the governing
body for the time being of the munici
pality. That this is the logical result
of the doctrine tiiat we have adopted
lias been sufficiently pointed out, and
it must be equally clear that such
doctrine is effectually subverted if
some other will than that either of tile
Legislature or of the people eari be
called in to take out a constitutional
enactment of the law.
Paterson versus The Society called
for the application of thia doctrine only
t< tho extent that a municipal charter
enacted to take effect upon its accept
ance by the electors of a municipality
was a constitutionally enacted law; the
ease now before us calls for tile ap
plication of the name doctrine to the
extent that a supplemental charter,
enacted to take effect upon its adoption
by the law-making body oftlic munici
pality. Is not constitutionally enacted
“No case calling for this application
of the doctrine of Paterson versus The
Society has hitherto come to tills court,
with tho exception of De Hart versus
Atlantic City, in which the point was
not considered or. at least, was not
"In the decision of the present case,
therefore, T am of the opinion that the
decision of tills point in De Hart versus
Atlantic City, in the Supreme Court,
should be overruled and the true doc
trine applicable to the case before us
declarer) to be as herein stated. From
this it results that a statute in the
nature of a supplemental charter that
is enucted to take effect upon its
adoption by the governing body of a
municipality Is not constitutionally
enacted law.
"This result leads. In the present
ease, not to the invalidation of the

civil service law as a whole, but
merely to the excision of those pro
visions that are conditioned upon the
adoption of the act by municipalities.
Tells of Provisions.
“The ‘wo classes of provisions are in
dependent and clearly severable under
the rule stated in Attorney General
versus Anglesea (29 VToom, page 3721.
The statute itself in its thirty-third
section expressly provides, ‘in case for
any reason any sectlpn or any provision
of this act shall be questioned In any
court and held to be unconstitutional
or Invalid *he same shall not be held
to affect any other section or provision
of this act.'
“With the force and effect of tills
section, and also with the severability
by judicial rule of the two methods
contained in the act for its adoption
by municipalities, we are not called
upon to deal or to express any opinion.
Tile statute in the present instance,
having been adopted by the governing
body and being on that account held
to be invalid as a protection to the
plaintiff, further questions that might
arise on some other statement of facts
are of no concern to him.
“The construction placed on the act
by Justice Swayze in the Supreme
Court, in so far as the office in dispute
is concerned, meets with our approval,
but with regard to the views sug
gested as to the office of vice-chancel
lor in McKenzie versus Elliott (72 At
lantic Reporter, page 17) we wish to
be understood as expressing no opin- j
ion. In accordance with the foregoing
views the Judgment of the Supreme
Court is affirmed.”
In sustaining the constitutionality of
the law as a whole, Judge Garrison dis
cusses the constitution as follows:
"The broad question Is whether in
our system the right of local self-gov
ernment Is guaranteed to the people of
the several political divisions of the
State, so that the Legislature has no
power to provide for the government of
those divisions by commissions unless
such commission is chosen by the
people themselves.
“For, upon consideration, we must I
reject the suggestion that the mere j
appointment of the members of a com- j
mission from among the citizens or in- |
habitants of a municipality affected Ib I
any guarantee of local self-govern- |
ment. in order that Belf-government :
may amount to more than a name it I
is essential that the officials to whose
discretion the powers of government i
are confided should be representative
of the will of the governed; that they
should be chosen by the electors of the
locality affected, aud thus impressed
with a sense of direct responsibility to I
the people.
Dwell un Self-Government.
"Nor does the circumstance that the
acceptance of the system is made to
depend upon the previous consent of
the electors of the municipality
make the system a system of
local self-government. For the prln- I
ctplo of local self-government does
not contemplate nor permit that the
voters by a single election shall take
Irom themselves and those who come
after them the control over their af
fairs for an indefinite time
“Accepting, therefore, the phrase 'gov
ernment by commission' as sufficiently
describing a method of local govern
ment by a governing body not period
ically chosen by the local electors, the
luestion is whether it is prohibited by
our fundamental law.
“Now, the government of this State
was established by the people upon the
basis of a written constitution that as
sumes to declare certain rights and
privileges of the people, to establish
and define tlie right of suffrage, and to
distribute the powers of the govern
ment into three distinct departments,
the legislative, executive and judicial,
to define the powers of these depart
ments and Impose limitations thereon.
"Article IV., Section 1. paragraph 1
(of the Constitution) declares that ‘the
legislative power shall bo vested in a
Senate and General Assembly.’ Sec
tion VII. of the same article contains
numerous limitations upon tlie powers
of the Legislature. The bill of rights
contained in article 1 imposes other
limitations. But it is significant that
the whole of the Constitution may he
searched In vdtn for any specific provi
sion guaranteeing to the people the
right of local self-government, or pro
hibiting ' the Legislature from exercis
ing powers of local government through
the Instrumentality of commissions,
however chosen.
"Nor Is the argument for the exist
ence of the alleged right aided by the
lar.guago of the preamble: ‘We, the
people of the State of New Jersey,
grateful to Almighty God lor (lie civil
and religious liberty which He hath
so long permitted us to enjoy, and look
ing to Him for a blessing upon our
endeavors to secure and transmit the
same unimpaired to succeeding genera
tions, do ordain and establish this Con
stitution.' For we are still to look to
what Is thereafter written for the spe
cific provisions that the people did
thereby ordain and establish for the
purpose of accomplishing the aim of
securing and transmitting the liberties
of the people to succeeding generations.
It is impossible to so construe the pre
amble as to write something Into the
Constitution that its framers did not
write Into it. If we were to write ‘local
self-government’ into the Constitution,
because we consider that to have been
one of tlie means by which civil and
religious liberty were theretofore en
joyed. we might with equal propriety
write Into it other things that at ono
time or another had been conducive to
such liberty. \nd if we were thus to
write 'local self-government’ Into the
Constitution, In what terms should it'
be defined? What class of subjects
should local government include?
Should it include only local police
regulations, strictly so called, or should
it Include schools, municipal water
works, lighting works, sewers, and the
like? And how is local self-government
to be exercised; how are the members
of the governing body to be chosen, and
what are t) be their qualifications?
In the argument drawn from the pre
amble, hazy as it Is, has the double
fault of proving too much, if it proves
anything, and of not defining what it
The Legislative Powers.
Continuing. Judge Garrison holds that
the legislative power was by the Con
stitution vested in the general Legisla-!
ture, “maker of laws for the whole!
State,” and "for every part of It. with
out any other limitation than that
which the Constitution itself in express!
terms imposes.”
Justice Van Syckel is quoted In his j
decision in the case of Frltts versus,
Kuhl (22 Vroom) as saying: "It is aj
postulate of a State Constitution, which
distinguishes it from the Federal Con-j
stltution, that all the power of the peo
ple is delegated by it, except such parts
of it as are specifically reserved.”
The opinion of Mr. Garrison goes on:
"It is the very essence of government
that it shall operate upon those who
are unwilling to be governed. The
right of local self-government, if it ex
ists. necessarily limits to that extent
the powers of general government; It
creates. In some sense and to some ex
tent, an Imperiuin In imperlo. Such a
limitation Is rot to he implied.
“Nor does it seem to us that the
reference: in different parts of the con- 1
stltution to the cities, townships and j
counties, either as Senatorial or As- :
scmbly districts, or as judicial dls- j
tricts. or as districts for the purpose of |
qualifying voters, or the like, has any
thing to d- with the question how the
Internal affairs of these several dis
tricts shall be governed.
“Our munlclpalltes * • * are but
agencies of the State erected in and for
limited parts of Its territory, whose
governments' are established by the
State for limited purposes that are of
particular concern to the immediate in
habitants. hut at the same time are of
concern to the people at large.”
