H. Redner Into the heart of the district where the, uprising was. Other newspaper photographers were prevented from sending their pictures, as told in Cartoonist R. W. Satter-field's letters also from the rebellion district; but Redner delivers the goods! The top picture shows eight draft rioters just brought in from the acene of a battle near Iloldenville.

Note carefully the types of men among the prisoners the men who are leading this organized effort to defy the military arm of Uncle Sam. Note, too, the ready rifles in the hands of the posse-men. The lower picture shows guards on the roof of the Holdenllle jail, equipped with field glasses and searchlight; other guards in the street below. The prisoners are in the Jail and there Is fear that an attempt will be made to rescue them. MEN'S FAULTLESS NIGHT SHIRTS.

The lunsiiaiie of the constitution (Pur. See.

s. Art. 1 is as follows: "Cnngrefs have power to provide for calling forth the militia to execute the Uws of the Vnion, suppress tnsun ei tions and repel invasions," all of which are domestic affairs. As powers not expressly printed to Congress t.y the consittu-tion are reserved to the people, it follows that under this paragraph, which is the one relied on by those who oppose sending the troops. Congress does pet have the power to send them beyond the boundaries of our country.

Provide Common Defense. But, paragraph one of the same article and section fives Congress the power to "provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United Ptates." Here Is a power broad enough to fit any possible occasion, and Congress may send the militia to any part of the earth where it is deemed necessary to "provide for the common defense" of our country, leaving to Congress the sole question of the proper time for such action. In other words, the government of the Vnited States can do anything which any other government on earth can do to preserve its national life, the only difference nelng In the manner in which it shall be done. The constitution is an instrument of life, not of death. It is not necessary, In order to "repel invasion," for us to wait until an enemy appears upon our shores.

Whenever and where-ever an armed force is gathered with the declared or obvious intention of invading our country, thither we may eend our armies, volunteer or drafted, to crush the invasion in its as Hercules strangled the serpents in his cradle. A people must possess within themselves the seed of preservation, or they can not exist as a nation, and whenever the, constitution, or any law, stands in the way of the life of our nation, the former and not the latter must give Lincoln Used It. This is the "higher law" set forth by "William H. Seward, and used by Abraham Llnceln to preserve the Vnion in 1661. Many able lawyers of that day believed that while secession was unwise and wrong, the government, did not have the right, tinder the constitution, to compel the seceding states to remain in the Union.

But it did have the right to recover the property of the United States which, those states had seized and to permit the free exercise of the functions of the govern: ment and the enforcement of Its laws. It will be a very wise thing to have this decisive question settled by the greatest court of our land of the world a body far better qualified than Congress or the President to decide it. That court has never failed to guide our ship of state thru the storms which have beat upon it, and in my opinion it will not disappoint us now. As a great French publicist said of this court, "It has no guards, palaces or treasures, no arms but truth and wisdom, and no splendor but the justice find publicity of Its Judgments." yet it has been the "force of gravitation which ha 8 kept each member of our federal system In its proper orbit, and maintained the essential harmony of the whole." Better the nation without constitution, than the constitution without the nation; but better still, both the nation and the constitution. JAS N.
