WASHINGTON, Oct. 17.—The United States supreme court, by Chief Justice Fuller, has affirmed the judgment of the Michigan supreme court, upholding- the constitutionality of the famous Miner law, providing 1 for the election of presidential electors by congressional districts instead of ty the state as a whole. The court holds that the fourteenth amendment did not limit the right of a state to fix a mode of choosing electors. The conceded effect of the decision is to give a part at least of the Michigan electoral vote to Cleveland. Tho Opinion. Chief Justice Fuller, in announcing the conclusion of the court in the case, said that the court made the announcement at this time because of an exigency suggested by counsel requiring early action. Hereafter the' court would file an opinion setting forth more fully the ground on which it had decided the case. In the J brief announcement of the decision the court said that in the case of M.cPherson vs. Blacker, the secretary of state of Michigan, in which was drawn in question the public laws of the state of Michigan (the Miner law providing for the election of presidential electors by congressional districts and for tbe election of electors at large by dividing the whole state in two parts) the supreme court of Michigan had ruled adversely to the plaiatiff in error upon the validity of the local law. In so deciding the federal question was necessary to be passed upon and the validity of the constitution and laws of tho United States had been drawn into the matter because of this federal question. Question of Jurisdiction. The chief justice said that this court ruled that it has jurisdiction of the case under section 709 revised statutes (the democrats having raised the point that the question was one of local law in which the decision of the state court was final). Having established its jurisdiction in the- matter, the court then dashed to pieces the hope of those who had appealed in the case from the Michigan supreme court by affirming the decision of the Michigan court which had ruled that the Miner law was constitutional. The chie: justice said that the court ruled that in view of the language ;he clause of *he constitution giving to the state legislatures the right to determine the method of choos- ng presidential electors and of ;he contemporaneous instruction, it cannot now be held invalid 'or want of power in state legis- atures to pass such a law. "We ara clear that the clause of the first section of article 2 of the constitution has not )een chang-ed by the fourteenth amendment, and that the law is not obnoxious o that amendment." • No Hope teft. The decision obliterates the last hope that the Miner law might be invalidated in court, and that the elec- ion in the coming presidential contest might be decided on the old plan of giving the whole vote of the state to he party having a plurality in the tate at large. The opinion was unan- mous. Provisions of the Law. The Miner law provides for the election of presidential electors by congressional districts instead of by the state at large. Instead of securing fourteen electors from Michigan, as they naturally expected, the republicans will, as a result, get only ten, and possibly not more than nine votes. The democrats are certain of four, and they claim they will get five of them. The decision one of the. most important delivered by the supreme court Heretofore it has been the rule, and has been believed to be the only constitutional law, to elect electors by the state at large. Thus if the number of republican congressional districts in any state outnumbered the democratic districts, the entire electoral vote of that state has "been given to the republicans, and vice versa. Thus were the vote in the congressional districts of Illinois next month to be the same as it was two years ago, leaving the two congressmen-at-large out of consideration, the electoral vote of the state would be, under the Miner law, fifteen for Cleveland and seven for Harrison. In short, the district, not the state, selects the electors—only the two electors representing the two senators being- elected at large. OYEB, THE STATE. 3tlay Live Three Months. WASHE»-GTOS.
