Mr Spencer said that he could not for a moment favor tbe bill on that ground 1KB. BZ.AZK Mr Blair urging the bill on the ground that it would equalize the pension bur- den, which, by the way, he said, Mr Oavia's statement on Friday had estimated at twice as much as he (Blair) had then supposed it might be, and he believed that even that estimate was twice too low. Mr Bpoonet went on to argue that the non- enrollment o of a special tat to meet the interest and principal of thcne bonds It furthermore de- clared the bonds to create a contract between tbe state and the bondholders wlmli should not be impaired and declared that judicial power should be used whenever necevsary ta secure the levv and collection of the tax and payment of the bonds The state constitution adopted m 1879, however partly repudiated this agreement and directed that the re> emie collected by the v of the special interest tax should be diverted to defraj the expenses: of the state government Hans, who is a riUzen of Louisiana brought suit to have the new state constitution de- clared invalid HO far as it impaired the contract between the state and the bondholders on the ground that it violated the constitution of the United States The state set up the plea that it could not be sued bj one of its OH n citi- zens without its consent and the circuit court deciding tho question in of the state, the) case rouies here for final decision Justice Bradley in his opinion affirm? thU judgment, says that if as plaintiff in contends, he has the nght to mamta u suit because ho is a citizen of Loulsuna andl not of some other state, then we should anomalous results that incases anting under the constitution of the d btates, a statej ma> bo sued m the federal courts by its own citizens though not by the citizens of other states, for this is forbidden by the eleventh; amendment If this is the necessary conse- quence of the language of the constitution and law, the result is no less startling and unex- pected than was the original decision of thbj court in the case of ClushoJtn i s tiic of Georgia that under the language of thei constitution the state w as liable to sued hv of another state Tins de- cision frtated such a surprise throughout the country that at the first meeting of congress thereafter the eiith aiuiiidnitnt to the con- stitution was almost nn uumously proposed, and in due course adopted In conclusion the court says It is not essary to enter upon an examination of the reasons or exedienry of the rule vi h ex- empts a sov ereign state from prowmtion In a court of justice at the suit of individuals It is enough to declare its existence The legis- lative department of state represents its poli- cy and its will, and is called upon b> highest demands of divine and natural law preserve justice and judgment and to hold violate the obhga'ious of tho slala.
