exception to the general doctrine, .that un
limited power has no place In American
governmental Institutions snd that there
are rights of liberty and property thst are
secure against hostile legislative action.
In the opinion of this court, the enact
ment In question Is not a regulation of
commerce, within the proper moaning of
these words, as used .In the commerce
clause ef the constitution, therefore not
within the power granted by that clause."
Jada-e Dallas Ceaeara, .
Judge Dallas In his opinion says that he
"fully concurs in the foregoing opinion
snd the little now to be added Is Intended
merely to accetuate acceptance of It."
Continuing he says: -
"No court has authority under the guise
of interpretation to Change the constitu
tion for the purpose of meeting a sup
posed requirement of present conditions,
and the covert tendency of any usurpation
of such authority would inevitably be to
transform the government of enumerated
powers which the constitution established
Into government with all power vested
In Its legislative snd executive branches.
"The inclination sometimes manifested to
centralise power In the general government
results In great messure, no doubt, from
the apparent expediency,, ot committing to
It the' conviction of Ills which It Is 'sup
posed that the states cannot so readily
redress; but the achievement of no pres
ently desired' end, however salutory, can
Justify the infraction of our fundamental
law, or warrant Its perversion or Insidious
construction. The constitution of the
United States Js a written Instrument, not
a progressive development, and the often
quoted epigram that 'constitutions are nof
made but. grow' should not apply to it.".

The case waa argued on June it and 17.

Readlng'a case was not. argued along with
the others because of certain questions of
law Involved In Its ownership.
The commodities clause case was consid
ered so Important that Attorney General
Bonaparte cme to "this city and person
ally made the principal argument In behalf
Of the government.
Prior to the clause going Into effect the
anthracite coal carrying railroads went be
fore the Interatate Commerce commission
and declared that they could not comply
with the fclause without making great sac
rifice. Thereupon the" government agreed
not to enforce the clause until a decision
was had upon law points involving Its cnti'-
i mi ueparcment or Justice then filed a
bill in equity upholding the government'
contention that the clause was constitu
tional. The railroads in their answers de
clared the clause to be confiscatory, dis
criminating and a prohibition and not
regulation; that It deprived the railroads of
"liberty and property" and violated a right
.reserved to the stages.
, The Interstate commerce act provides a
penalty not to exceed $6,000 for each viola

Cannon Is credited wftrt raying that Mr.
Bryan had accumulated Il.OX'.OCO selling

non as the third mnn '1n ' influence In the
governments "If not even above the vice

tion,' and said that It was only fair that
th speaker should arply to himself the
same rule that he applied to me and take
the public Into his confidence.
Of Mr. Cannon. -Mr.-Bryan said:
"Mr. Cannon, .in bis speech - before the
republican state convention yesterday, has
this to say of me:
' 'How about Bryan, a man ef theories,
man who has a breaking out -of the
mouth; a man who agreed with the pop
ulists only a dozen years sgo that no man
could honestly earn $1.0ftl.000 and that when
any man had that he -was .a plutocrat. But
a man dominating the democratic party
and the greatest advertising agent on earth
through his papers; through his books and
through Ms lectures, Is, I am Informed,
worth n-.ore than $1,000,(X.
"A little later In his speech he drops the
qualifying phrase and says, as If upon Is
own knowledge:. 'There, stands the demo
cratic candidate, a successful chautaugua
lecturer, who has made $1,000,000 selling
wind and ink to the pi)blic.' Many exag
gerated statements have been made In ro
gard to my earthly po.sesslpns, but this is
the first time the statement ias been made
by any man of political standing or
responsibility. . I think I am Justified
therefore In speaking. of, this, subject, which
might otherwise be considered too personal
a matter for public discussion. I was
worth about $3,000 when I was elected to
congress. I served fouf; years and by care
ful economy I saved between $3,000 and
$4,000, or about $1,000 a year, so that when
I went out of congress In the spring of
1H5 1 was worth about' $6,000 or $7,000.
'During the period that elapsed between
the end of my congreaslonal terms and my
nomination for the presidency, about a year
and four months, ! was engaged In speak
ing and In lecturing and added but a small
sum to my savings? After the election of
1896, my earning power as a lecturer was
largely enhanced by the prominence which
tho campaign had given me. My book.
'The First Battle,' brought me $17,000 and
I gave an equal amount of the profits to
th various committee that 'had carried
on the campaign In 1898.- My lectures have
been profitable and my writings have paid
me well, but no-aa? attends the lectures
unless h wants to do so, and no one b'lys
what I write unJes .he Is Interested in
reading It. i
"More than haJf tofimy time -elnce 1896 has
been given to.-.f rtHous.work,. and yet I
have . been able . ..support myself and ac
cumulate property which,. I wouldestlmate
at abo,ut $125,000. but as. one can never ac-
curately say what .property Is worth until
he sells' it, 1 will fix $150,000 ss the otftslde
limit, the maxlmunj of my wealth, and I
am wining io leave me puuuc to oeiermine
whether that Is more than I ought to have
earned, or whether I have earned It hon-
eatly. And now, having answered the crltl
clsm of Mr. Cannon and shown that his ac
cusation Is false, I think I am Justified In
asking him to be as frank with the public
as I have been.
"He began holding office In 1861, when' 1
was a year old, and during the last forty
seven years he hasheld office more than
forty years of the time, and about thlr'y
five years of that time he has been a mem
ber of congress and has buen drawing a
salary that the ' members of congress
thought so inadequate that the salary has
recontly been Increased. Will he tell us
what he has been selling, to whom ha has
sold It and how much he got for It? He
ought to tell us whether be has made sny
money lecturing or writing that Is by sell
ing wind and1 Ink to--choose his own lan
"He has been greatly hampered In the ae
cumulation of money by the strict attention
to public duties, and "yet he is reputed to
be wealthy. If he will tell us' Just how
much he Is worth we can then guess how
much he might have' been worth had he
been free to devote his talents to money
making. Being the third man In Influence
In our government, coming next to the
vce president, If not even above the vice
president. In his power to Influence legisla
tion Is It not fair that' he should apply, to
himself the same rule that be applies to
me and take the public into his confidence?
Let him tell us what he has been selling,
to whom he sold It and how much he got
for It. If he thinks that th wealth of a
presidential candidate and the aourca of
such a candidate' Income shall be known.
will he deny that the speaker's wealth and
his sources of Income should be known?"
