tiiQcates of election It will respect equally the States and the rights of the United States It permits the States to con tinue to make regulations for tho election of Congressmen but warns the States

make or alter State regulations of the manner of holding elections forRepresentatives in Congress to secure districts more compact as to terri rory more stable in duration andto secure a greater

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
