THE FEDERAL OBLIGATIONS OF

Such legislation as may be found "neces

e States upon the propositions for
amendment from time to time subMitted,
is fly warranted by the Constitution
itself. Its necessity is patent in We fact
that, without Federal legislation to meet

rumors intimate that Secretary Fan of

there is no present likelihood that Con. gress will recognize the belligerent rights

that, at various pans on our coast, front

with tbe frequent embarkation of sympa

JIRGH GARETTi, SATU,RDAY, MARCH 20, 1869.
Ohio, New york or fie — n—
the legally constituted State Government,
and, that it could net be suppressed
without the Federal interpositio. What
would be thought of n Congressional
majority or of an. Executive, 'Which, in
political sympathy with the insurkents,
. but not daring to take the responsibility
of a square refusal to grant the military
aid asked for by the imperilled State gov
ernment, should seek to evade it, and in
directly- to promote the rebellion, by re
signing and abando.Ong their official
trusts? Yet that case would be precisely
a parallel to that of State legislators who,
swora first of all to uphold the Federal.
Constitution, are guilty of an unreason
able delay, or of an attempted evasion,
in any indirect mode 'whatsoever, of a
clearly constitutional duty. •
It is not enough to say that such an
evasion, in the case of an amendment
submitted to a Legislature, practically
works no bad results, since such amend
ment must have a certain affirmative vote,
and that the silence of the minority would
count negatively in any event. That
does not meet the case. An amendment
once submitted ought to be disposed of
without unreasonable delay. If one
State may choose to give no expression
upon it, others may do the same, and,
less than three-fourths voting at all, the
question might remain open year after
year and until, perhaps, an emergency of
danger had ripened into a fatal disaster to
the fabric of the Union.
The joint resolution offered in the Sen
ate by Gov. MORTON on Wednesday,
prescribing the manner of proceeding by
State Legislatures upon amendments to
the Constitution submitted to them for
ratification, intends and distinctly pro
provides for the early compliande of the
States with this duty of affirmation or ro ;
jection. The resolution specifies the pm.
cite period of the session •at which any
amendment so submitted shall be taken
into consideration, directs that it shall be
continuously ditictussed until bron,gat to a
vote, and provides that no resignation or
withdrawal of a minority or members
shall obstruct a 'final. decision by
the majority of the same body.
This measure is doubtless suggest
ed by the recent extraixmstitution
al" " course of a partizan minority in
the Indiana Legislature, who 'have, by a
concerted resignation, sac ceeeded .in
breaking the three-fifths quorum required
by the local constitution, and so delay
ing the decision of Indiana upon the
XVth Amendment: The resolution, is
ample to • meet all such contingencies
hereafter. It takes, as by clear constitu
tional right, the entire control over the
details of State action upon a Federal
question, and makes the "necessary and
proper" provision against an indirect re
_ pudiation of the just obligations of the
States tolhe whole Union. That control
must be somewhere—and where gould
it be, if not in Congress ?
It Is needless to add that we heartily
concur in the sound policy and constitu
tional validity 'of the Senator's proposi
tion. We have not , always been able to
agree with him, upon questions of lead.
ing public concern, but, in this case as in
most others, we have to thank him for tbe
uncompromising logic and clear states
manship which lead him to propose this
long-needed measure. Its novelty is the
sole argument against it; the more it is
considered, the clearer its merit is estab

concert, of sacred song. He was assisted
by a Mr. Davis, a remarkably fine bass

of the concert must have amounted to a
handsome little sum.
