LINIMENT United States Constitution above quoted: "No stats shall pass any law impairing the obligation of Contract." .Vow because of tills provision in the United States the legislatures of the States could not pass, a law making any liens "except the ordinary a prior lien to a first mortgage, be- cause it Vould impair the oblisation of the Contract between the Jlort-, gagor 'and the Mortgagee, but in Can- a da, no such restrictions prevail and we see numerous laws making Seed Wcoil Linns 'and other liens prior to the first mortgage. In the United States what is called with in other words the Constitution dele- gates certain powers t'o Congress, and I provided that all other powers not thus delegated to .Congress by the Constitution shall remain in the sev- eral states and in the people. In Can- ada the eiact reverse is true. The delegated powers are to tlie Province and the "Residuum of power" rests with the Dominion. You say that In Canada and the United States "the Constitution can- not be changed by the legislature, ex- cepting in certain hut in the-United States tlie constitution cannot be changed by the legislature.
