OWING to the intense interest just now in the Copperfield affair, we re
print a portion of the opinion ofJustice Cooley in the case of the
state of Michigan against the governor, as printed in the 29 Michigan,
321. Justice Cooloy among other things said:
"Our government is one whose powers have been carefully apportion
ed between three distinct departments, which emanate alike from the people,
have their powors alike limited and defined by the constitution, are of equal
dignity and within their respective spheres of Actions equally indopendont. One
makos the laws, another applies the laws in contested cases, while tho third
must sco that the laws are executed. This division is accepted as a necessity -in
all free governments, and the very apportionment of power to on depart
ment is understood to be a prohibition of its exercise by either of the others.
Tho executive is forbidden to exorcise judicial power by tho same implication
which for bids the courts to tako upon themselves his duties.
"It is true that neither of the departments can operate in all respects in
dependently of tho others, and thiiit what are called tho checks and balances of
government constitute each a restraint upon tho rost. The legislature pre
scribes rules of action for the courts, and in nvnny particulars may increase or
diminish their jurisdiction; it also, in many cases, may prescribe rules for exec
utive action, and. impose duties upon, ortako powers from the governor while in
turn the governor may veto legislative acts, and the courts may declare them
void where they conflict with the constitution, notwithstanding, after having
been passed by the legislature, they have received the governor's approval.
But in each of these cases tho action of of the department which controls,
modifios, or in any manner influences that of another, is had strictly within
its own sphere and for that reason gives no occasion for conflict, controversy
or jealousy. Tho legislature in prescribing rules for tho courts, is acting with
in its proper province in malting laws, while tho courts, in declining to en
force an unconstitutional law, nro in liko manner acting within their projier
province, because they are only applying that which is law to the contro
versies in which they are called upon to give judgement. It is mninly by
means of theso checks and balances that the officers of the several depart
ments are kept within their jurisdiction, and if they nro disregarded in any
case, ami power is usurped or abused, the remedy is by impeachment and not
by another department of tho government attempting to correct the wrong by
asserting, a superior authority over that which by tho constitution is its equal.
"It line long been a maxim In this country that tho legislature cannot
dictate to the courts what their judgements shall be, or set. aside or alter
such judgements after they have been rendered. If it could, constitutional
liberty would cease to exist; and if the legislature could in like manner over
ride oxecutivo action also, tho government would become only a despotism
under popular forms. On the other hand it would lie readily eoueodod that no
court can compel tho legislature to make or refrain from making laws, or to
meet or adjourn at its command, or to take any action whatsoever, though
the duty to take it be made over so clear by tho constitution or tho laws. In
those cases tho exemption of the one department from the control of tho
other is not only implied In the framework of government, but is indispens
ably necessary if any useful apportionment of power is to exist.
"The appointment of power, authority and duty to the governor, is either
made by the people in the constitution, or by the legislature in making laws
under it; and tho courts, when the apportionment bus been made, would be
presumptions if they should assume to declare that a particular duty assigned
to tho governor is not. essentially executive, but is of such inferior grade and
importance as pro)orly to pertain to some inferior office, and consequently,
for the purposes of their jurisdiction, tthe courts may treat it precisely as if
an Inferior officer had been required t0 perform it. To do this would bo not
only to question the wisdom of tho constitution or the laws, but also to assert
a right to make the governor the passive instrument of the judiciary in exe
fitting its mandate within the spore of his own duties. Wore tho courts to
go so far, they would break away from those checks and balances of govern
ment which were meant to bo checks of co-operation, and not of antagonism
or mastery, and would concentrate in tl(,ir own hands something at least of
tho power which tho people, either dinvtly or by tho action of their rep
resentatives, divided to entrust to the other departments of tho govern,

Important Reform Measures Will Be
Pushed at This Session of New
York's Legislature.
Hinted That Democratic Minority Will
Join With Independents in Making
Trouble for G. O. P.
Albany, Jan. 7. With a well bossed
Tammany Senate glaring across the cor
ridor at a defiant Republican assembly,
the New York legislature of 1914 con
vened here today. It is the first New
York legislature that ever had an im
peached governor in its membership,
and the first that has had a free lance
assembly, although the republicans
elected a majority of the mombers.
The republicans had looked forward
to this session as an opportunity for
them to enact such progressive meas
ures as workmen's compensation, di
rect primaries and reform ballot. A re
publican conference in New York
pledged the assemblymen to those
measures, but the democrats forestalled
tho gathering of these political am
munition by passing these same pro
gressive bills during the final days of
the special session of the democratic
Former Governor Sulzer now an as-
somblyman, bears the unique distinc
tion of being virtually "a man with
out a party." Ho cast off the demo
crats following his impeachment and
was elected to the assembly on the pro
gressive ticket. Tho progressives, how
ever, have not included him in their
conferences and have not numbered him
as among those' to bo relied upon by
their party.
Just where and when the trouble will
begin is tho problem. Former Governor
Sulzer is apt to vie with Assemblyman
llinmnn in getting in a stiff resolution
to investigate everything democratic
and Hininaii wants especially to dig in
to the expenditure of the millions that
have failed to furnish the barge canal.
Sulz.er wants most of nil a general un
covering of Tammany Unit's use of
money at elections but is not averse to
any inquiry that would show up any
It is hinted that the democratic min
ority will join with the independents
to do anything that will make real re-
publican trouble, but this feature of the
session will develop as opportunity of
Oppose Investigation.
At tho outset the Tenders will try
to stave off the immediate introduction
of investigation resolutions. They pre
fer to have but few and these deadly,
but admittedly it will be hard to hold
back Sulzer and several more of the
determined independents.
Tho senate although powerfully of
tho Tammany persuasion is disposed to
be really good. With tho governor and
with fear to do otherwise it fairly we
squared accounts with the people by the
reform legislation put through at the
close of the extra session. Now it sees
no renl reason for legislation unless the
governor has something further in
Take a Glass of Salt Before Breakfast
