One Phase Of Federal Power Under The Commerce Clause Of The Constitution, John C. Donnelly May 1904

One Phase Of Federal Power Under The Commerce Clause Of The Constitution, John C. Donnelly

Michigan Law Review

No clause of the Federal Constitution, making a grant of power, has, by judicial interpretation, been declared so broad and comprehensive in its scope as that clause which empowers Congress "to regulate commerce with foreign nations and among the several states and with the Indian tribes." In one of the very first cases in which the Supreme Court was called upon to consider the scope of this provision, it was quite properly held that under it, navigation was one of the important subjects which came within the federal power. Under it navigation was not only an important subject considered by …

Is The British Empire Constitutionally A Nation, Stephen B. Stanton Mar 1904

Is The British Empire Constitutionally A Nation, Stephen B. Stanton

Michigan Law Review
