President Was Arbiter.
"The authority conferred by this
section (helm' that the Oklahoma en-
abling act) with Its limitations and
prohibitions was most obviously ad
dressed to the delegate chosen un
der its provisions when they should
have nssembled in convention for the
purpose of forming a constitution and
state government. A constitution
which should make no distinction in
civil or political rights nn account of
race or color was the only kind of a
constitution the delegates were em-
powered to make. Vhen It should

the delegates chosen to make the con-

and found and proclaimed by the con-
stituted umpire to be In accordance
with the act which authorised It.
"The rqulrement of the enabling
net that the constitution conven

nance to that effect to 'which our at-
tention Is especially directed by coun-
sel for complainants affords no addi-

The provision which called the con

The change it Is understood was
the result of the protests from the
border towns against the assignment
of negro soldiers to duty In their vi-

delicate question for the president in

Judge Sanborn Dissents.
The dissenting opinion by Judge
Sanborn takea entirely an opposite
view upon the question of the enabl
ing act and force given it by the con-
vention's irrevocable ordinance. The
separate coach law of the slate he
says defies the spirit defeats the pur
pose violates the express prohibition
of the fourteenth amendment to the
federal constitution Is uneonstitution
al and void. That the agreement be
tween the federal government and
the proposed state made through the
convention ordinance is still a bind-
ing contract is made clear. While In
view of the admission he says that
a distinction between the races Is be
ing made it Is unnecessary to discuss
the enabling act agreement. Judge
'Hut I do not desire to be deemed
to assent to any proposition that any
terms of the contract between the
state and the nation made at the
time of Its admission may be violated
by the former with impunity after
the acceptance of Its constitution
and Its admission Into the union.
That question was much debated six-
ty years ago. without as within the
courts. Leaving It aside here the
fact that the enabling act required.

state. Is very persuasive that they and

derstood this to be the substantial
meaning of tho constitution of the
United States and in my opinion no
such distinction should now he per
mltted to be ierpetuated."
