of the res raini UK power of a state and it was for the purpose of giving that permisuion thai the hill had beau introduced and re ported The effect would be to have each state ill the ion to determine for itself what its policy should be in regard to the traflic in intoxicating liquors Under imt decision of the supreme court the state of Iowa could not prevent the citl mis of other states

commerce was an exclu sive power and could uot be delegated nnd ho quoted authority for the statement Gray agreed with Vest but proposed that congress could declare that intoxicating liquors were not an article of interstate commerce Vest said if that were done it would open the door for the prohibition oE other articles In answer to a question Vest said the right to import an article implied the right to sell it nnd Hoar said that if congress could uot control this question there waa not a more miserable nation on the face of tho earth Kxtoiiilon of tiie Principle lliscock asked Hoar whether if a state desired to exclude not liquors but manu factures of wool U waa within the power of congress to delegate to states the power to do so Hoar replied that he did not go rrulto that far but the question involved was ou the boundary lines between two conflicting police power of the Ktato and the exclusive power of con gress over interstate commerce Hiscock thought it a doubtful policy to put it in the power of a state to prohibit the im portation of anything it might wish to ex clude and nf more doubtfulconstitution ality All Around Edmunds remarked upon it as a very cu rious aud interesting circumstance that a condition of things had been reached where according to the debate and according to the judgment of the supreme court there was in every man iu one state an inherent
