LAWYERS AGREED
As to One of the Issues of the
Political Fight.
HARMON AND GENERAL HARRISON
Both Hold That the Question of the Vovrrr
of TJnlted States Courts Dominates All
the Rest Statement Made by the Na
tional Attorney General In Reply to
Numerous Inquiries as to the Question
Raised by AHseld aud Debs.
Washington, Sept. 12. Attorney Cen
tral Harmon lias furnished the following
for publication: I have concluded to give
public answer to the many inquiries
tuado of me upon a subject of great mo
ment to which general attention is now
directed. Mr. lirvan, iu his letter oecept-
ng 'he nomination for president by the
zonventiou at Chicajo, amplifies tho pro
test which that convention made iu its
platform against federal interference in
lK-nl affairs, which strangely enough is
not found in the platforms of theother two
conventions which have also nominated
him. As nothing else has been done or
proposed to which they can possibly ap
ply these protests were intended aud are
understood to bs directed against the re
cent action of the president in forcibly
suppressing; riotous disorders which had
stopped the carriage of the mails and in
terstate commerce and were defying the
civil ollicers of tho I'nited states
Thinks it the l'araiuount Issue.
The president took this action not
only without the request, but in some
instances against the protest of the au
thorities of the states in which the
riots occurred and Mr. Pryan, taking
section four of article IV of the consti
tution to be the law upon the subject,
pledges himself against any repetition of
the violation thereof, which his letter
necessarily charges. This,
in my judgment, is a far more serious
matter than the money question or
any of the other questions now before
the people grave a they all are.
Our form of government may survive
a wrong decision of those questions.
and the people may endure for a time
the evils wliich result from false sys
tems of finance and taxation, but if the
president has deliberately disregarded
the instrument upon which the I'nion
is founded by supplanting the author
ity of a sovereign state by armed force.
a precedent has been made wliich
threatens our form of government.
The Section That Cover the Case.
While, if a candidate for president
pledge himself in advance as Mr. Bry-
nn has done to do nothing to protect
the property, maintain the authority
aisd enforce the laws of the United
Ftatcs unless and until the oflieers of
another government request or con
sent, then we really have no federal
government;, for a government which
is not entirely free to us'.- force to pro
tect and maintain its own proper func
Hons is no government at all.
Tho section of tho constitution to
which Mr. Bryan refers is as follows:
"The Uifited States shall guarantee to
every state in this Union a republican
form of government, and shall protect
each of them against invasion: and.
on application ot the legislature, or
of the executive (when the legislature
cannot be convend). against domestic
violence."
lion- ifarmnn Interprets It.
this section plainly refers merely to
the protection of the stales against in
terference with their authority, laws.
or property by domestic violence, laws,
they are wisely made the sole judges
whether and when they need such pro
ict-iion. - - - jiiu i.y tne express
terms of the constituion a state has
nothing to do with the maintenance
of flic authority or the execution of the
laws of the United States within the
territory of the state. The prevention
and punishment of offenses; connected
wun me mans, vim interstate com
merce, and with the administration of
justice in the federal courts, are com
mitted to the general government, and
to It alone. '
state tiovernincnt Not Menaced.
such offenses In nowise menace the
government of the state in which they
are committed. Therefore the state
cannot require protection against
them. The state has no duties to dis
charge in these matters. Therefore i
i an icrjuire no "federal assistance'
uith respect to them. Of course do
stlc violence often, as in recent
ts. Is Hirecfd against both state
and federal authority indiscriminately
o that either or both' may suppress it
And in such cases tha action of-each
n maintaining its own authority over
the subjects committed to it tends to
aid the other. But in such cases each
is acting in its own independent right
as a sovereign government, and on its
own behalf.
SAYS TUC 11KA IS AX EIIROR.
Consent of a State Not NeeesMrjr for ITncle
Sain to Act.
It would be as absurd to claim that the
United States must neglect its own inter
ests because in protecting them those of a
state may be incidentally protected as to
claim that a state must let riot run free
because it happens to be directed against
federal rights or ollicers as well as iu own,
This would liu.it and belittle tho soy
ereiguty of both governments. Imperium
in iinperio would Delate. According to
Mr. Bryan there ts somewhere implied in
he constitution for u is nowhere ex
pressed a prohibition of the use of force
by the l mted Slates against persons who
within the limits of astute maybe suc
cessfully resisting Its ollicers and com
l letelv paralyzing all Us operations as
government, unless the local authorities
hall first make request or give consent.
This is contrary to the settled prin
ciple th3t w hile the federal government
is one whose operation is confined to
certain subjects, it has as to those
subjects all the attributes of sover
eignty, and one of tie ee is always an
everywhere, within the territory of
the states which compose it, to sup
press and punish those who in an
wise interfere with the eiercise of its
lawful rawers. The fact that there
ire within that territory other govern
tnents exercising sovereignty over all
matters not so committed to It can
make no difference under our double
form of government, the essential prin
ciple of which is a partition of powers
to be exercised independently over the
same territory.
This sovereign right of the United
States necessarily follows its onicers
and agents everywhere tney go. pro
tecting and maintaining them in the
discharge of their duties. Congress
has accordingly, by section 5297 of the
revised statutes, authorized the presi
dent to use the armed forces of the
government In aid of state authorities
when requested by them, as provided,
in the constitution, and has also by the
following section (32SS) authorized him
o employ such forces, upon his own
Judgment alone, against "unlawful ob-
tructlons, combinations or assemblages
persons iu whatever state or terri-
ory thereof the laws of the L nited
States may be forcibly opposed or the
exec ution thereof forcibly obstructed."
It was under the power conferred by
the section last named that the late re
bellion was suppressed. Mr. Bryan's
ictrine that thlss law unConstuu-
iotial is more dangerous than that of
secession. The latter at least leit tne
government some power and authority
in th territory of the states which
hold choose to remain: Mr. Bryan s
would reduce it to the idle mimicry of
the stage. It was no more Intended to
take the general government depend
ent upon the states with respect to the
matters committed to it than to make
the states subject to the general gov
ernment with respect to the rights re
served to them.
.s the general government is author
ized to maintain a regular army and
navy, which the states cannot do. and
s the militia of all thi-states is subject
to the direct call of the president, it
was natural that the states should be
made to call on it for aid against vio
lence, but there was no reason why it
hould call or wait on thcMU for protec
ion to itself.
What I have said is well-known to
lawyers and students of the constitu
tion. It is chiefly intended for the pkeo
pte at large before whom the subjet
has now been brought. It must
be tiiat Mr. Bryan amid the many de
mands on his time and attention, has
fallen into an inadvertence. I cannot
believe that he really thinks the pres
ident has no power under the consti-
ulion and laws to maintain the gov
ernment entrusted to bis chai w.
Nor can I believe that Mr. Bryan
means to promise or -to permit others
o think lie has promised not to in
terfere if he should be elected and the
situation of the riots of 1SU4 should
arise during his term. 1 will not light
ly question either his knowledge as a
lawyer or -his sincerity as a public
man. Certainly his letter is generally
misundc rstcd unless it means either
hat Mr. Bryan thinks the president
has no power or thn.t he would himself
rot use it if elected.

AN IMPROVEMENT IN PROSPECT.
Dun & Co. Say So as to the Situation in the
l.nsiness World.
New Tork. Sept. 12. K. CI. Dun &
Co.'s weekly review of trade says:
Better prospects and relief from mon
etary anxiety do not yet bring larger
demands for finished products, though
large buying of pig iron, wool; leather.
hides, cotton and other materials con
itiues to show a growing business that
a general nisvement upward in prices
will come with the replenishment of
aters stocKs this tall. Most prices
are extremely low, so that anything
more than ordinary demand would ad
a nee them.
But bank failures at New Orleans
cause temporary hesitation, crop re
turns indicate disappointment in some
cotton and some spring wheat states,
prices of corn and oats make it un
profitable to sell at present, the miin
her or manufacturing works and mines
in operation does not gain, but rather
decreases, reduction .f wages are
somewhat numerous, occasionally re
sisted by strikes, and nil those condi
tions diminish for a time the buying
power of the people. While many think
general improvement cannot come tin
til tho election has remowd political
uncertainties, others expect soon to see
the result anticipated.
Wheat declined a cent, but then ad
vanced, dosing a cent ui for the
week. Accounts of disapjiointing re
turns in spring wheal states are nu
merous, but it is lithcult to reconcile
short estimates with h.-avy marketing
at low- prices. Corn is almost wholly
out of danger. ::nd the yield is gen
erally expected to be ia- largott. as the
price here is the lowest, over known.
Failures for the week have been .tlS
