iiiioii tho three co-ordinate bnmehc
of our government executive,
legislative and judicial. To the
ordinary mind it appears that the
. tuition taken by the attorney
general, a the representative of
thu executive brunch of thu gov
ernment, is tho correct one. He
argued that the uctiou of the
jurisdiction of tho I'uited St.it cm
over ltehriugs' cu was entirely
political and as such it was proper
and constitutional that it should be
determined by the president and
that such decision on thu jmrt of
tho president being merely the
performance of his constitutional
functions, cannot bu reversed by
thu supremo court. .Nevertheless
it will bo lemembered that the
position taken by thu government
in thu beginning of this eatc, that
thu supremo court had no authority
to entertain thu original motion
for leave to lile a petition for a
writ of prohibition, was overruled.
