It was a response to th# suggestion contained iu that decision that ceugreaecould permit the exercise of the restraining power of a state; and it was for tile purpose »*f giving that periutssioa that thi* hill had been int reduced aud reported. The sliest of it would be ti* have each state lathe Union Is determine for itself what It* police should be is regard te the traffic in intoxicating liqusr*. Under thai decision of the supreme court the state mf lews could net prevent the citizen* of ether states or the subjects ef Great Britain Figure or Germany sending intoxicating liquors into Iowa aud having theta sold there In the original packages by agrufe At tbs present time original package -od*.one were being organized in hie state The package might la* a pint or a half pint of whisky or a keg or a bottle of beet It wa* to (iiit a stop to Milch prat ttiw end to recognise in every state the 1 power to regulate its owe internal pollee I that the bill was reported Mr. Vast said that a* a member of tho ; judiciary committee he had not l»eeu able 1 to agree with the majority in reporting ; th** bill, because it wa lid sweep away the j exclusive jurisdiction of the United States evt r leterstate tom alerce. The *upreuie court had decided that the power of congress wvar interstate commerce wits an ex elusive power and could nut lo* delegate*! Mr Vast sent to the clerk’* desk and had read ^rejK>rt of the judiciary committee is the last uoagreae laying down the priu aiple for which he contended. Mr. Ingalls sad Mr. Edmunds called fur the reading of tbs rainurity raper* and it was read, dissenting from the views of the majority, aud slgacd by Messrs W ilaon of Iowa, Ingalls. Edmund* and Hoar. Mr. Gray agreed with Mr. Vest’s argument, hut lie a*ked whether the difficulty clfrld not be got over by an affirmative de* lsratiou of congee* s Gist intoxicating spirits were not an artii ie of interstate commerce. Mr. Vest did not think so. lf that were done aa to one article of com* ut**ive for one state congress would ba a ked to do it st* to other article* for other ■tate*. Mr. Ldiuuuds suggested the case of a ■tate prohibiting the entrance of lepors, the transportation of whom ta* of all other passengers* was a question of interstate commerce. Mr. Vest said that that did not touch the case at all. because the supreme court bad decided that the commercial clause of the constitution never wa* intended and usver could tx* intended to take away from states their reserved police power to protect tho lives aud health of their own citizen* Mr. McPherson flaked Mr. \ ’est w het her the right to import an article implied the right to sell it. Mr. Ye t replied in the affirmative, aud quoted front the decision of Mr. Justice Matthews of the supreme court iii t lie case of \\ ani vs. Maryland to that effort. Mr. Hoar argued in favor of the bill. Lf the hill wens not within the legislative power of congress, then there was no more miserable nation ou the face of the earth than the Uuitcd Stratas Mr. Hi acock asked Mr. Hoar if a state desired to exclude, not liquors, but menu-facturea of wool, it was within the power of congress to delegate the states the power to do at*.

He did not Kay that lie would vote against the lull; lie thought it might be wise to pans it and leave it to the supreme court to pass uJ*o!i it. Mr Reagan said that whatever might be hi* w ish to see temperance promoted iu the land, he wa* not willing to lay his baud od the constitution aud tear it dow a Mr. Edmunds remarked upon it as a very curious and interest lug circumstance that a condition of thing* had been J reached where, according ti* the debate I and according to the judgment of the sn prerne court, the state* had no power to I -a1 with the subject, ami cong re**.*, had no | wit to deal with it.

Wa.hhixi.ton, May 21—Th# application far a writ of srror in th# case of Keminler under sen tem*# of death by electricity, was heard in the supreme court of Iii# United States yesterday. Roger M. Sherman. counsel for Kemmler, who made the ap plication, ap|*»ared for th# condemned murderer lie based his argument on the fourteenth amendment to the federal constitution, w hich provide* that: “No state ■hall make or enforce any law which shall abridge th* privilege* sr immunities of citizens of the United State*, Bor shall any state deprive any person af life, liberty er projierty without due process mf law”; and sa th# eighth amendment, which provide* that cruel and unusual punishment* shall not b* inflicted. Mr. Sherman explained the circa stance* In which the writ of srror was brought Ms contended that the infliction of death by electricity was cruel and unusual aud therefore without due process Bf lew Mr Sherman held that th* electrical I*w gave th* wu rd tm no dim.retlon in the mkt ter of the application of the electrical cu*-I (it. He wa* obliged to continue th*cur teat until the criminal was dead. KEMMLER WOULD BE TORTURED Mr Sherman gave a number of lust an of tile inflict ion of death by electricity to show that a man would not bs (natantly killed by the application provided for UU der the New York law. A man’* resist sues wa* greater thus 23,IOU ohm* It might easily be IOU,OOO ohm*. Kemmler would simply be tortured if the currant contemplated were applied. No would ul timately die, but in rke| interim would be tortured. He might be cremated on the surface, or he might be carbonized Tk# wet (•pongee, to bs used as part Bf the oleo-tideal apparatus, had to he kept wet dur iug the pav>age ut the eurrent. How was this to be done* It wa* intended te have a luau play a h«vo* on th# sponge during the passage of the current, but this was abandoned liecause during the burning #f some electrical works firemen had reived shocks wkil* playing water on lh# flame*, tile water furnishing the current. Now It wan intended to have water drop, iu some way, on til# sponge*. He would like t-o know how It wa* to be done with out danger. Mr. Sherman, in conc]union, referred to the fact that Judge Wallas, whom k* called a humane, eminent aud learned judge, well aware of th* unsettled condition of several question* involved in the case, had held by the granting of a writ of balnea.* corpus to Kemmler, under circum stance* ef exceptional delicacy aud bu inanity, that at least a proper rase was presented for judicial eon side rat Rat. Ha onfhh-ntly believed that he would sot m-eeive the unmerited rebuke of a decision by the court that there wa* no serious fed-re I a ileal iou iii tile argument submitted lo him. ATTORNEY GENERAL TARoR’8 ARO? MENT Attorney General Tailor in opening his argument referred to the last statement mi Mr Sherman, and stated that Judge Wallace had grunted the writ of habeas corpus because be wa* willing tm do all that was proper iii order to give Kemmler a chaco# for life Mr. Tabor appeared as counsel for Warden I hirst on of Auburn prison In opposing the grunting of the writ of ar TOT. Mr. Tabor’s argument consisted principally of copious reference# to decisions concerning the fourteenth amendment. He laid much stress on an opinion delivered by Justice Miller of the United States supreme court, containing the ntatement that tiiere exists some strange miuconcep ion el tile scope of the fotirti* nth amendment .

The fourteenth amendment, he claimed, wa* uot applicable iu this chs*. There were several provisions of the federal con ■tit ut iou that were not applicable to the state*. The law* for the execution mf criminals were regulated by the state# themselves For J wo year# the controversy over the execution of Kemmler hod been going on. Five men were held for murder In the state, but could uot be executed because of the litigation. The state of New York, he said, wanted to know where it stood a* to the execution of criminals. As for the eighth clause, concerning cruel and unusual punishment, that provision was the same in the cousti-tutiou of the state of New York a* it wa* ie the federal constitution. The testiinoay iu the New York court of appe*l* wa* referred to by Mr. Tabor, and extracts from the opinions of the judges of the court on the case were also read. In conclusion he stated that in view of what these judges had said it, would seem to be mu entirely unuezessary, if not ira proj»er proceeding upou the part mf the supreme court to read and examine a thousand pages of testimony for the aim pie purpose of dincovering whether all of the stats courts were not all wrong in rn gard to the admitted question of fact. He thought tiiat the motion for a writ of error should be summarily dismissed. Mr. Sherman made rn brief additional statement after Mr. Tabor had tin ished. Tile court reserved it* decision and adjourned until Friday. A Victor* for the Trotting Association.
