Excerpt from The Creighton Chronicle, Vol. 1: February 15, 1910
The situation is complicated still further by the fact of our dual form of government. When the constitution of the United States was written, it was found necessary, on account of the relations between the original states, to limit the grant of power to the central government, and among the powers conferred which were so limited, was the con trol over commerce. The constitution expressly declares that Congress shall have full authority over commerce be tween the states, and thereby excludes from its control the very large internal commerce of the several states which does not pass their borders. Each sovereign state, there fore, assumes the right to regulate its internal commerce and most of them have exercised that right by the enactment of regulatory statutes along the lines of the Federal laws. Some states have gone far beyond anything that Congress has yet attempted, while other states have not availed them selves of all the powers which they undoubtedly possess.
