Excerpt from Studies in Civil Government
It is too true, that while we, as a nation, are constantly re ferring to Constitutional rights and Obligations, not one young man In a thousand examines the text Of the Constitution, but expects the knowledge needed in the exciting events Of our political life as a people will come without study and without reﬂection: The times in which we are living will make all see the necessity for the study Of the Constitution In our pub lic schools, if we would rightly educate the young in the essen tial principles Of our national government.
The maintenance Of these principles by an honest, intelligent discharge Of the duties arising from an almost universal right Of suffrage by the people can be best preserved only through universality Of correct Opinions respecting the fundamental Law and the institutions existing by its authority. In this new and enlarged edition such additions have been made as the Amendments to the Constitution and the Decisions of the Courts render necessary. The author acknowledges his Obli gations to the Judges Of the Supreme Court Of Illinois for suggestions and additions, which are included in this edition. The Constitution Of Illinois, Of 1870, is inserted after the Manual on the Constitution Of the United States.
