The following is the essay of Miss
Timlin which won first place for her
in the essay contest in the Fifteenth
Judicial District:
The Constitution is the supreme
fundamental law of the United States
of America by which all powers of the
National Government are established
and limited. I
After all deductions, our Constitu
tion ranks above every other written
constitution for the intrinsic excel
lence of its schemes, its adaptation to
the circumstances of the people, the
'mplicity, brevity, and precision of
its language, its judicious mixture of
definiteness in principal, with elasti
city in details.
One is therefore induced to ask, be
lore proceeding to examine it, to what
causes, over and above the capacity of
its authors and the patient toil they
bestowed upon it, these merits are
due, or in other words, what were the
materials at the command of the
Philadelphia Convention for the
achievement of so great an enterprise
as the creating of a nation be means
>f an instrument of government. The
American Constitution is no exception
:o the rule that everything which has
lower to win the obedience and respect
)f men must have its root deep in the I
past, and that the more slowly every 1
Institution has grown, so much the ■1
nore enduring is it likely to prove. j1
The men at the Convention, practical J
aoliticians, who knew how infinitely
difficult a business government is, de
sired no bold experiments. They pre
ferred, so far as circumstances per- '
mittted, to walk in the old paths, to *
Follow methods which experience had *
cested. Accordingly they started 1
trom the system oi. which their own 1
•olonial governments, and afterwards
:heir State governments, had been i
mnducted. This System bore a gen- 1
?ral resemblance to the British Con- i
stitution; and in so far it may with i

The Nebraska State paqk
ruth be said that the British Consti
;ution became a model for the new
National Government.
They held England to be the freest
ind best governed country in the
j’orld but were resolved to avoid the
veak points which had enabled King
George III to play the tyrant and
vhich rendered English liberty, as they
.bought, far inferior to that which
.he Constitution of their own states
secured. With this venerable mother,
ind these children, better in their
judgment that the mother, before their
ayes, they created an executive magis
!rate, the President, on the model of
:.he State governors, and of the Brit
ish Crown. They created a legisla
ture of the two houses, Congress, on
he model of the two Houses of their
ntate Legislature, and of the British
'arliment. And following the prece
lent of the British judge irremovable,
.xcept by the Crown and Parliment
ombined, they created a judiciary ap
pointed for life, and irremovable save
>y impeachment.
In these great matters, however, as
veil as in many lesser matters they
■opied not so much the Constitution
if England as the Constitution of their
leveral states, in which as was natur
11, many features of the English Con
ititution had been embodied.
As provided by the Constitution we
he National Legislature of the United
tates, called Congress, which con
sists of two bodies, sufficiently dis
similar in composition, powers, and
character to require a separate de
The Senate consists of two persons
from each State who must be inhabi
tants of that State, and at least thirty
years of age.
The functions of the senate fall into
three classes—legislative, executive
and judicial. Its legislative function
is to pass, along with the house of
Representatives, bills which become
Acts of Congress on the assent of the
President, or even without his consent
if passed a second time by a two-thirds
majority of each House, after he has
returned them for reconsideration.
Its executive functions are: (a) To
approve or disapprove the President's
nominations of Federal Officers, in
cluding judges, Ministers of State and
ambassadors, (b) To prove, by a
majority of two-thirds of those pres
ent, of treaties made by the President
—that is if less than two-thirds ap
prove, the treaty falls to the ground,
its judicial function is to sit at Court
for trials of impeachment preferred by
the House of Representatives.
The Senate constitutes a link b *
tween the State Governments and the
National Government The House of
Representatives, usually called for
shortness, the House, represents the
nation on the basis of population, ns
the Senate represents the States.
