Through its provision* tha development of free and orderly r nation. It . _____ 0 people In our day.\ — declared ‘ Surrogate Judge George A. Alater, epcaker before the White Plalna Klwanla Club at their weekly meeting held yester ­ day noon at the White Plains Bel ­ mont Hotel. Hie speech marked ( the local observance of Constitu ­ tion Week by the Klwanls Interna ­ tional Organisation. \Our Constitution can be traced back to the Magna Charts of Eng ­ land. Anglo Bason people brought acroaa the sea the political and soc ­ ial .Institution of England; English laws were their laws and the Magna Charts their charter, and Ameytcan colonies established on the Atlantic seaboard used the English Bill of Rights for their pattern. “ The American people In their colonial government used English democracy's benefits, but revolted against kingship and the social system of England. Nevertheless, there can be traced between the Magna Charts and the Constitution a chain that is clear awd com- \When our Constitution was darwn up to supersede the old Articles of Confederation of 187, here was created national life,\ re ­ counted the Surrogate. \Here was created.our national Ufe; here commenced the great ad ­ venture of human government, dif ­ ferent from all others, a govern- mnt of Ussltd governmental powers and an Instrument of-liberty. ” Men were born for that hour, as ­ serted the 8urroge. Alexander Hamilton of New York, A d a m s from Massachusetts, Roger Sher ­ man from Connecticut. James Mad ­ ison from Virginia. James Wilson and Benjamin Franklin from Penn ­ sylvania and George Washington, president'of the convention, were engeged In the work of recasting government and civilization and the influence of their work can be traced throughout the world. “Tha Constitution outlined a gov- ~~ lent of limited powers, but \\ - safeguards of liberty. Just res ­ traints of tha law are to be reck ­ oned as among the liberties of the people. Its conception and achieve ­ ment Is not political speculation but the history of Its framing and Its contents la the. product of prac ­ tical experience,\ declared Surro ­ gate Slater. “ While the Constitution was or ­ dained to form more perfect union, establish Justice, promote the gen ­ eral welfare, secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and poster ­ ity,\ continued the Surrogate,\ It was seen soon after ratification that It had defects. There was ab ­ sence of a guarantee of reserve powers to the states and absence of guarantee to the citizens of pro ­ tection against exercise of despotic power of the new government. Therefore there were added the ten amendments called th Bill of Rights.\ Bill Of Rights \Th BUI of Rights provides for: enjoymerlt of a man's personal Ub- erty, property and pursuit of hap ­ piness; no state religion should be established; freedom of speech or of the press shall not be denied; people can assemble and petition the government; right of people to be secure In their persons and homes shall not be violated except by warrant; no person shall be held to answer for a personal crime unless Indicted by a Grand Jury; right of trial by Jury shall be preserved for all; excessive ball shall not be required and. power not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, Is reserved for the states or Its people. “ Other amendments - Include one affecting judicial power, the twelfth, relating to the election of president and vice-president; thir ­ teen and fourteen relating to free ­ dom and rights for the negro; Ar ­ ticle Sixteen, about income taxes; Article Seventeen, election of sen ­ ators; Article Eighteen, prohibition and Article Nlnetteen, woman suf- \Qucslions Involving the Inter ­ pretation of the Constitution fre ­ quently arise and the great popu ­ lation and extent of territory has brought Into the Supreme Court many complex eases In relation to MUST FACE FEDERALCOURT George Miller, Yonkers, Ar ­ rested.
