Atlanta Constitution, The (Newspaper) - March 10, 1890, Atlanta, Georgia THE ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. VOL. XXI. GA., MONDAYt MORNING, MARCH 1O, PRICE FIVE CENTS. THE TWO BILLS to rxxrxyT rax Of STATES FOR CONGRESSIONAL PURPOSES. KcCmna'ft Bill 1 >V hat a Prominent lawyer Says In Regard to State and Federal Rights. March 9 cratic and republican members ol congress alike are right now ery much exercised as to tlu constitutionality of congress regulating the redistnctmg of states For some time the Hoar and AVickham bills, to prevent the re- diitiittmg of Ohio at the present time, have been discussed largely by the democrats However Mr McComas, of Maryland, has re introduced a ingenious measure which the republicans seem determined to The bill is for the purpose of check- tho moves of the democratic legisla- ture of Ohio and Man laud in redistncting tlioM st ites, so as to increase the democratic representation from these states in congress THE M'tOMAS BFLL The McComaa bill provides that congress- men shall be elected by districts which shall o as near I j as practicable an equal num- ber of inhabitants and the districts shall be composed of "territory that n contiguous ad- jacent and compact That after each census shall reapportion, and the legislature of each state elected next thereafter shall re- t tmder these restrictions ns to popula- tion ind territory, and when made shall not be a'ured until the next census That until the next apportionment under the clev t nth census there shall be no change of boundary, and represen tat iv es to the fiftj-second congress shall be elected from the same districts as those from which members of the fifty-Orst were elected anj of state heretofore or hen ifter to be passed to tho contrary notwith- standing Also that certifying boards of each sta'c authorized and required bj the law of such state, to cam ass and declare the result of elections of members of congress in addi- tion to the facts now required bj the statutes of the V in ted States, to be set forth m the cer tihcates shall further certify that such reprc sen aa been elected to represent the districts constituted and composed of the terntorv in conformity with this act, and that such districts in respect to territory nml state, enacted before or after tlie passage of this and -such certificates onlj shall be re cei-ved bv the clerk of tbe next house m mak- ing up tho roll In case of the failure or refusal of the stnte certifying board to sign and forward such cer tihcate, the clerk in making up the roll of tin next house, may receive in lieu thereof re- turns of local canv issmg boards or officers of districts as sufficient certification of the repre- sentatives elected, and shall file such returns lii the office of the clerk of the honse The bill is, indeed, very ingeniously worded, and if passed, the Ohio democrats would be paral> zed If they attempted to rim congres- sional candidates in the new districts appor- tioned ui the redistnetmg bill, which recently passed the house of tbe Ol 10 legislature The only hope of the democrats is that such a measure is unconstitutional If the bill is on firm constitutional grounds, then the Democrats cannot depend on Ohio and Mary land to increase their numbers m the next congress A LAWYER'S OPINION Judge Chipman, of Michigan, one of the greatest constitutionil lawyers on the demo- cratic side of the house, said this evening in epeakmg of the McConiasbill "It is based on the fourth the first article of the constitution, which confers on the states (he power to prescribe times, places and manner of holding elections for senators and representatives, 'but reserves to congress the power to make and alter such regulations as to the places choosing senators This does not in express terms designate who shall establish representative districts The supreme court of tho United States bah liad this section under consideration and lias decided that congress may these regulations m whole or m part and prescribe punishments for infraction of tho state as well as of tlie federal law regulating congressional It has also decided that the power congress is exclusive of every other power when constitutionally exorcised, and that all powers necessary to the exercise of an ex pressed power are to be implied In ox-pnrte "Yarbrough, the court, refers with approbation to two notable instances of the exercise bv. congress of the power to alter state regulations JTirst, that body prescribed that representatives should be elected in districts, as now, instead >f in the state at large, second, in 1871 It prescribed that representatives should be elected in all the stetes on the same day Any one ran see the tendency of these decis- ions, and this action is to give congress perfect control of the actual conduct of the election All this leaves the broad question, 'Who shall establish the congressional There is no express constitutional provision on th? subject, but H must be distinctly rscogmzed that the existence of districts is the work of cxmgroas Tins is the present status of the questions arising under the McComaa bill. I not leave the field of power and enter -that of discretion, except to say that if con- gress has the power to district tbe states, it be w ise not to exercise it OBOKGIAVS IN WASHINOTOIT Quite a distinguished party of Georgians spent a portion of today here, on their return to Georgia The party is trav elmg in a ate car, and is composed of General E P Alex Captain E P How oil, Colonel Pat Calhonn, Captain Harry Jackson and Major A O.
