Veto Message of Gov. Johnston.
To the Senate and House of Representatives of
the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
GExtt.EmEN.--The necessity of the
'present message is most sincerely re
gretted. The exercise of the negative ,
power, vested in me by the Constitution
has been hitherto carefully avoided, un
der the impression that its frequent and
constant use was well calculated to im
pair the republican simplicity of a rep
To unite with cordiality in measures
sanctioned by the Legislature, affecting
the welfare of the people, would at all's
times afford me more pleasure than the
adoption of a different policy.
When, however, it becomes necessary
in my judgement, to preserve the integ
rity of the Constitution, and to protect
the rights of my fellow citizens, I should
feel that the trust reposed in me by the
sovereign people was unfaithfully dis
charged, were I, under any circumstan
ces, to shrink from just responsibility,
or by any action oldie Executive depart
ment, permit the well established and
revered principles of a representative
republican government to be endangered
outraged, or destroyed.
In a government founded upon the pop
ular will, it is scarcely necessary to re•
mark, that the very basis of its super
structure is the right of the citizens to
an equal voice and influence at the bal
lot box. The purity and equality of the
elective franchise, and the equitable dis
tribution of the favors and burthens of
the State, constitute the life-giving prin.
ciples--the spirit and strength of such
government. The destruction of either
may well be deemed an act of hostility'
to the best interests of society, and to
the permanency of our institutions.
In all ages and governments, among
civilized men, the infringement of the
right of representation has caused the
sturdiest and most justifiable opposition.
Republican government ceases to exist
whenever these cherished rights are dis
regarded. In recognition of these ad
mitted principles, the Constitution of
this Commonwealth has pleged the con
stitued authorities to their defence and
Impressed with the correctness of
these truths, I have felt it my duty to
withhold my approval of Bill No. 320,
of the General Assembly, entitled "An
Act to dx the number of Senators and
Representatives, and form the State into
districts, in purstiance'of the provisions
of the Constitution."
It is due to the Legislature and the
people, that I should briefly state some
of the reasonsthat have influenced me
in this determination.
The bill is, in my judgment, uncon
stitutional, unjust and defective in its
The Constitution requires that in
...each term of seven years, an enumera
tion of the taxable inhabitants shall be
made, in such manner as shall be direc•
ted by law. That the number of repre
sentatives shall, at the several periods
of making such enumeration, be fixed
by the Legislature, and apportioned
among the city of Philadelphia and the
several counties according to the num
her of taxable inhabitants in each, and
shall never be less than 60, nor greater
than 100. Each county shall have at
least one representative, but no county
'hereafter erected shall be entitled to a
separate representation until a sufficient
mintier of taxable inhabitants shall be
contained within it to entitle them to one
representative, agreeably to the ratio
Avhich shall then be established."
It further provides that the number
of Senators shall, at the period of ma
king the enumeration before mentioned,
be fixed by the Legislature, and appor
tioned among the districts, formed as
hereinafter directed, according to the
number of taxable inhabitants in each,
And shall never be less than one-fourth,
ner greater than one-third of the number
do its further provisions are found lim
itations of the power of the Legislature
in the formation of senatorial districts.
Those provisions of the Constitution
plainly indicate the manner in which the
apportionment shall be made, and, in
direct terms, declared, as the basis of
• representation, the taxable inhabitants
of e ch county. They require the Legis
lature to fix the number of the members
of the House of Representatives, end to
determine the ratio or number of taxa
ble inhabitants for each member, accor
ding to a septennial enumeration. Any
departure from this standard or ratio,
must be a breach of the organic law,
which guarantees to each county an
equal representation, according to the
number of taxable inhabitants therein.
The ratio fixed in the bill is 4,865
taxable inhabitants for one member of the
House of Representatives, and 14,743
taxable inhabitants for one Senator.
In the bill under consideration are
found the following palpable objections
and violations of the ratio fixed upon by
its own provisions.
Ist. The county of Fayette contains
7,611 taxable inhabitants, and is allow
ed two members, being 2,119 tax : aides
less than the number required by the ra
tio fixed by the Legislature. The coun
ty of Dauphin, with 7,683 taxable in-
habitants, is allowed one member, with
nn unrepresented surplus of 2,818.--
Thus Dauphin county, with a larger pop
ulation, more taxable inhabitants, and
whose citizens bear a much larger pro
portion of the public burthens than the
county of Fayette, has only one half the
influence and weight in the House of
2d. Allegheny county, the great com•
mercial and manufacturing district of
Western Pennsylvania, with 28,547 tax
able inhabitants is allowed five members,
being one member to every 5709 taxable
inhabitants, while the adjoining county
of Westmoreland, with less variety of
interests to protect is allowed three mem
bers on a tax list of 11,618, being one
member to every 3872 taxables. In oth
er words, to 5000 taxables in Allegheny
county is given the right to elect a mem
ber of the House of Representatives,
while in Westmoreland county 3872 tax
ables have the same political influence. l i
The unrepresented excess in Allegheny
county, by the provisions of this bill, is
4,222 taxables; being 350 more taxabtes
than the ratio fixed for Westmnreland
county. I cannot believe that the hon.!
est yeomanry of Westmoreland county
would desire this undue influence in die
assessment of taxes over their fellow
citizens of an adjoining county.
3d. Schuylkill, whose citizens are
largely engaged in mining, manufactur
ing, and agricultural pursuits, has 12,-
867 taxables, and is allowed two mem
bers, being 6433 taxables to a member,
while to the adjacent county of Berks,
with 16,262 taxables is given four mem
bers, being 4065 taxables to a member.
Upon what principle of equity this dis
crimination is made, I cannot conceive.
Here we find 4065 taxables in one coun
ty possessing the same authority to
elect a member that is given to 6433 tax
ables in nn adjoining county.
4th. The county of Westmoreland
has, as stated, three members with 11,-
618taxables;Sentlylkill with 12,867, has
two members, and Lawrence mid Butler
with 11,915, have two members. Here
is exhibited the astounding fact, that in
two districts containing each a larger
number of taxabtes than Westmoreland,
there is given to each a less number of
representatives. Berke has 16,262 tax
ables, and is allowed fryr members,
whilst Schuylkill and Butler and Law
rence, with 24,782 taxables, are allowed
no greater number. If the Constitution
can be construed to inflict such flagrant
wrongs, the liberties of the people are
no longer secure under its provisions.
sth. The county of Crawford, with
8,130 taxables, is allowed two members
while the adjoining county of Erie, with
8,434 taxables, is allowed only one mein
6th. the Counties of Allegheny, But
ler, Lawrence, Dauphin, Erie and
Schuylkill, with 69,44.6 taxable inhabi
tants, are allowed eleven members.
Here is exhibited an instance wherein
the voice and influence of 26,496 of the
freemen of the State, are unheard and
unfelt in the proper branch of the Leg
islature. By the ratio fixed in the bill,
the first named counties would be enti
tled to 14 members, and the last named
counties-to less than 9 members-.
7th. The counties of Adams, Allegh-
eny, Butler, Lawrence, Beaver ; Dauphin,
Delaware, Erie, Indiana, Lebanon, Phil
adelphia City, Somerset, Union, and
Lancaster, with an aggregate 14.0,294
taxables, are allowed twenty-five mem
bers; whilst the counties of Columbia,
Sullivan, Crawford, Fayette, Monroe,
Wayne, Pike, Mercer ; Venting°, War
ren, Mifflin, Montgomery, Susquehanna,
Wyoming, %Vestmoreland, York, Tioga;
Elk, McKean, and Clearfield, with an
aggregate of 105,280 taxables, are giv
en the same mumber. In the assessment
of taxes, and the appropriation of the
public moneys, the wrong inflicted on
these partially disfranchised counties is
The instances of inequalities and in
justice in the bill, similar to those men
tioned, are so numerous, that a further
examination and expose of them, would
seem a waste of time. in this inequali
ty of representation and disregard of
the ratio fixed by the Legislature, there
is a violation of the spirit and letter of
The district composed of the counties'
of Clearfield, Elk and McKean, presents
an instance wherein counties erected
since the adoption of the Constitution,
are given a separate representation on a
less number of taxables than the rated
number fixed by the Legislature.
The formntion of representative dis
tricts by the union unnecessarily of sev-
eral counties, is well calculated to re
move the just responsibility that the
representative owes to his constituent,
and to prevent the popular voice of some
of the counties being heard in the Leg
' islature.. This anti-republican feature
ought to be avoided. The district com
posed of Armstrong, Clarion and Jeffer
son, exhibits the following facts :—The
representative ruiio is 4865. The coun
ty of Clarion has 5087 taxables, ent
tling it to a member with n very small
excess. The counties of Armstrong and
Jefferson have 8708 taxables ; being pro-
portionably a much larger number of
taxables foi two members than is requi
red by this bill for the counties of Fay
ette, Westmoreland, Berks, or Crawford.
The interests of these counties may be
similar, and to that extent no wrong is
perpetrated ; but in the event, that either
county should have separate or conflic
ting local interests, the rights and wish
es thereof must not only be unheard,
but divegarded. The same remarks
apply to the districts composed of Cum
berland, Perry and Juniata, and Mercer,
Venting°, and Warren.
In the arrangement of the Senatorial
Districts, the same disregard of the ra
tio fixed by the bill, and the rights of
the taxable inhabitants is exhibited.
Ist. To the district composed of the
counties of Tiogn, Elk, McKean and
Potter, with 8,673 taxables, is given one
Senator; while to the district compos
ed of the county of Lancaster, with 22,-
843 taxables, is given one Senator. The
district first named falls short of the
ratio fixed by the Legislature 6,070,
whilst the last named district exceeds
the ratio 8,100 taxables. Lancaster
county, with 14,171 taxables more than
the counties first named, is allowed no
more influence on the floor of the Sen•
2d. The counties of Lancaster, Ches
ter and Delaware are allowed two
Senators ; the taxables therein are 42,-
880; thus requiring 21,440 taxables to
elect a Senator, whilst the counties of
Tioga, Potter, McKean, Elk and Erie,
are allowed two Senators with 17,107
taxables; thus requiring only 8,553 tax
able' in these counties to elect a Senator.
3d. The counties of Crawford, Mer
cer,'Venango, Warren, and ieffersonore
united and allowed two Senators, al.
though the number of their taxables only
exceeds that of the county of Lancaster
2000, and falls short of the number of
taxables in Lancaster, Chester, and
Delaware 18,029--a difference and in
equality greater than the ratio fixed by
the Legislature for a Senator. The
number of taxables in the 18th, 19th,
and 20th districts is 41,958; to these
districts this bill gives four Senators,
while to the 4th and 7th districts,
42,880 taxables, it gives only two Sena.
It is not perceived upon what principle
of propriety the system of double dis
tricts is adopted. In the formation of
the 19th district which largely lacks
the number of taxables required by the
ratio for two Senators the county of Jef
ferson, with 2622 taxables is included,
while the county of Clarion, with 5087
taxables, and inure eligibly located as
contiguous and• adjoining territory is
rejected. From this fact it is manifest
that this double district was created
with no view of representing fractions
or approximating to the ratio fixed by
the bill. It may well be deemed an act
of hnsty and imprudent legislation. The
counties of Crawford end Erie ; of Craw
ford, Venango and Warren ; of Mercer,
Venango and Clarion ; of Erie, Warren
and Venango, would all appear much
nearer to the ratio adopted by the Legis
lature, provided this system of double
districts cannot be avoided. The peen
lie• local interests and number of tax
ables in the counties embraced in the
sth and 24th districts, would not appear
to demand the combinations made by
this bill, and which are so likely to re
move the direct and just responsibility
of tit representative to his constituents.
The District is formed of Chester
and Delaware counties. The county of
Chester alone rs entitled by the number
of her taxables, according to the ratio
fixed, to a Senator, yet .the county of
Delaware with 5,267 taXables is un•
necessarily added to form said District,
n~hil'et the county of Montgomery adjoin.
ing to Delaware with less than tl►e re
quisite 'number of taxables, is allowed a
The counties composing the 2d, 4th,
7th, 9th, 13th, 16th. 17th, 21st, 24th,
25th and 26th districts, contain 243,677
taxable inhabitants, being more than
one-half the taxables in the whole State,
and are allowed by this bill 14 Senators;
whilst the remaining districts, contain•
ing 243,052 taxables, or less than the
one-half the taxables in the Common
wealth, are allowzd 19 Senators. This
result exhibits a wrong that cannot be
sanctioned by my co-operation.
1 have eatiled - to be Prepared, and in
vite attention to the tabular statement
annexed to the message. It will furnish
a succinct form or analysis of the bill
I have heretofore urged upon the legis
lature the propriety of giving to impor
tant public measures early attention. I
regret that the duty of apportioning the
State has been delayed to so late nn
hour of the session, thereby precluding
that consideration by a co-ordinate
branch of the government which its im
portance demands, and which the pre
sent bill convinces me it did not receive
at the hands of the Legislature. With
the sincere desire of expediting your
labors, by an early return of this bill, I
have devoted my time to its considera
tion since its presentation to me for ex
amination. I cannot believe that the
representatives of the people, or any of
'them, would designedly inflict wrong
upon a part of their fellow citizens.
I feel that the spirit of justice and
fair dealing that so largely marks the
character of our common constituency
would frown indignantly upon all at
tempts to disfranchise any portion of
the dltizenif: kntiw that the people
will denounce any and every encroach
merit, as they have always heretofore
done, that may be contemplated against
the liberty and equal rights of the citi.
This bid is rctnrned to the House of
Representatives, in which it originated.
