piiivlding for HIP admission of the teultnrv

pioepcdlius taken by the p-ojiloof tliat pait
of the iiicsent leiritoiy of Dakota lying

'Ihe history ot the movement foi statehood
Is H'citcd by Hie lepoit , showing tliat oveiy-
thlng had been conducted in oulci nnd with
piopiielv , going so ful us to icceiveiill the
authoilly Iho legishituio of that toiiitory
had , and its full legal sanction. Thciepoit
concludestliat the k'-jNatuie had authoilly
to authoii7c an election of delegates to n eon- coiivention , and calls attention lo
llio fact that Iowa , Mlchijaii und Oiegun
proceeded in n like maiimr. The olllclal
letuins of the elections selecting delegates to
tlio convention and lallfying the consti
tution accompany tins lepoit , Senator
Harilson bays that it is cleat
Hint an oveivvhelmingmajoiily of thu people
of South Dakota appiovo the constitution
and desliopiesenl admission inlo tlio union
of states mulct It. The constitution framed
by Dakota is Updated lo bo lepubllcan in
lorm and spiill , and gives lull recognition to
Hiobiipiumaey ot the constitution and laws
of the Unitol btates , establishes absolute 10-
llgloiis toloiation , tlnovvs about the lilo and
assets of the clti/.en a silcguaid of law , and
pioviuos In the most way lei a pu-
maiienlsyblem Df public schools. The uin-
btitutlon was flamed by HIP people who are
to live undei it in thu exeioiso of Iho Ameil-
can piinciplo ot po.mlar goveininent. It
meets theli wishes and , the icpoit believes
their wants.
"It is not IhcpiovincpoCcongiPss , ' ' states
Senatoi Hamsun in the icpoit , "to frame
constitutions for the now btales. In some
cases cougiess h.ib authoii/ed the piPshlent
to announce by proclamation the admission
of a state If ho found the constitution adopted
to bo lepubllcan in fonn and to contain cer
tain uitides ot compact stipulated in the
enabling act. In biich cases ot cotiiso , thu
slate constitution was nevei laid beioio con
giess. As eailv as Junuaiy , IbTl , a incmoilal
waa unanimously adopted by the teril-
toiy and letilblaliiio playing cougicss
to divide Dakota fiom the foity-slxth
lul , and to oru.uilro two tciritoilal govern
ments for the people , The political conven
tions ot both of the great political paitles
havu lepeatedly dcdaicd in favoi ol division ,
and some of them in laver of tlie admission
of tlie south half as a state. The newspapoi
piess ot the tenltoiy has voiy guneially
voiced the bamo desire. Demociats as we.ll
as icpublicans have taken pait In all ol
the movements ol the people lo which wo
havpioteiied. "
A compiehciisivo abstiact oC the
several tuatles of the United Status
by which cessions of teirltoiy have been
acqulieil ahd some tcirltoilos admitted to thu
union is given in the icpoit. showing the
legal light of Dakota foi admission into the
union. Then follows a long line of piece-
dents , fonnlng a foimldablo line of aigu-
mc'iit. The soiithoin demoeiats in the sen
ate who have so bitteily opposed thu division
of Dakota nnd ndmlsslon ot a half of It to
blatehuod aio lemlnded by the lepoit that
theii states weiu admilted in every instance
with less claims and In a less legal way than
Dakota has and it Is proposed she shall
come Into the union. The aigument , so f.u
as law nnd pieeedont are coneeined , is
veiy exhaustive. The opinions ol
piesldonts fiom Washington down
to late yeai- , bearing on the biibject of ad
mitting tetiltoiies to btatehood , sue quoted ,
all linnlbhlii ! ! the strongest piool in behalf
ot Dakota , Hiniy Clay , dining the coinsu
ot a icport made liom thu omiroiniso com-
mitteuot thliteen in iclation to the ndmls
slon ot Califoinia , said : "Theic are \aiIons
instances pilot lo the case of Callloinia ol
the admission of now states into the union
without any pievions authoil/.atlon by eon-
gie s , The solu condition icqulied by thu
United blatcs In icspcct to the udmlbslon ot
a new state Is that its constitution bhall bo
republican In foi in.
The tcriltoilcs which have been
admitted Into tlie union of states
dining the past decade or two , it Ib
observed , weiu admitted by n piellminaiy
action almost Identical with tliat alKMily
taken by Dakota. When Oicgon was ad
mitted into thu union , on Fcbruiuy U , IbS'J ,
theio was qnlto a piotracted debate In the
ho u so upon thu bill. The debate , howevci ,
tinned ehlelly upon the question ot popula
Hon. Theio bccmed to no no otlioi point at
Issue. It was conceded on both bides that
the possession ot a population equal to thu
latio of ropicbcntatlon In thohousuof icpie-
bontatives was all that could bu demanded
ot n terrltoiv applying lei admission.
Under tlio oidlnanco of 1767 only
00,000 Inhabitants could bo insisted
upon as a requisite foi the ad
mission of n state , and these who combatted
the piopusltlon to admit territories twenty or
thiityyeais ago simply Insisted that tticio
bhouldbe the unit of population , which was
'J.1-1 0 , to entltlo n teirltoiy to representation
In congiess. Now concessional lopiesonta-
tlon In the Htatu is based upon a lepiesunta-
tlvo lor uveiy 151,011 , inhabitants iiiidci the
census of IbW ) .
"Hut wo do not need to Insist upon that ,
hovvevei , In the case ot Dakota , " btates the
icport , lefeiiingtothe population. "Whero
a largei population has been Insisted upon in
iiiyumciit by tlie opponents of the ndmlsslon
of a new btatu , they have not gone fuither
than to claim that thu toirltoiy should have a
" a population equal to thu unit of representa-
"tion in the house ol repiesentatives. In fact ,
tluee states , Florida , Oiegon and Nevada ,
were admitted when their population was
less than the existing ratio of representation.
In the case of Kansas , congress in terms de
clared lu view of the contingency of the
question of the rejection of thu Lo Compton
constitution , that In that event the people of
bald territory are hereby authorised und em
powered to form for themselves a constitu
tion and state government by tha name of
the slate of Kansas , according to the federal
constitution , and may elect delegates lor
that purpose whenever , but not before
it la ascertained by a census duly and legally
taken , that a portion of sihl territory pqnals
or excels the latlo of representation roiulrcd
for a representative to congress ,
President Utichanaii Is quoted in tlio re-
poit as bavins aid , referring to the admis
sion of Kansas : "This excellent provision
which congiess applied to Kansas ought
to be extended and tendered applicable to nil
torrltorles which may hereafter bcok ndmls
slon Inlo the union. " When Oregon was
admitted she had a population of H.G30 ,
wlillo the existlnijiatloof representation was
In repaid to the population of Dakota the
rcpoitsajs : "U'cnre not left toconjecttno
or calculation of the population of south
