THE TWO THEORIES STATEH
Every one who

power. Only the other day Senator
Miller, of New iYork, said this, speak

"We believe that this is a nation, and that
the supreme sovereignty of this . country re
sales in tlic General Qocernvwnt and not in
the States. This is the doctrine of the Re
publican party." . jr : i
Mark this. Here is stated correct-

Do you believe in it? : Oh, reader, do j
you hold that the i"suprerne authori-;

in this sphere it can act without question,
but all its power is delegated to it for na
tional purposes, as specified in the written
instrument, but no further. : The State go
vernments are also of limited jurisdiction,
and to be confined to the powers delegated
to them. " The Federal Government cannot
invade the exclusive powers of the States
or the latter those of the former." All powr
ers not delegated to these dual governments
