thinking from 1787 to a much later
date. I do not think, therefore, that
Mr. Justice Frankfurter's smart re-
mark that it is 'the ultimate duty
of this Court to uphold the Constitu-
tion, not to uphold erroneous de-
cisions,' was entirely justified. It
begs, the whole question. It is, of
course, the duty of the Court to up-
hold the Constitution, but I do not
believe it can be said, unqualifiedly,
that the earlier decisions on this tax-
ing matter were erroneous.
Bates Notes Changes
Since these decisions times and
conditions have changed radically,
Dean Bates pointed out. State pride
and the doctrine of state sovereignty
have become dim almost to the point
of being extinguished. Moreover,
there have been many abuses of the
reciprocal immunity of the salaries
of Federal and state employes, and
particularly the immunities of gov-
ernmental securities from taxation.
But, and this is more important,
he continued, the states will certainly
exercise every form of ingenuity to
tax Federal officers in return. This
will lead, unquestionably, to many
undesirable situations, and to a great
deal of litigation. It will lead to an
increase in tax revenue and likewise'
to an increase in the number of of-
ficeholders, a result which may seem
degirable to some people.
Tax Abuses Possible
"It is possible, but perhaps not
probable, that the power to tax will
be pushed to ruinous lengths," Dean
Bates declared. "But Mr. Justice
Frankfurter, in commenting on this
case, stated that Marshall's remark
-'The power to tax is the power to
destroy'-was a seductive cliche. It
seems to me he did not state the
whole case. As a matter of fact, the
power to tax has been used to de-
stroy, has destroyed, and the de-
structive tax has been held valid by,
the Court. United States vs. McGray
is perhaps the best known case in'
this class. However, we can prob-
ably rely upon the good sense of the
American people and of legislatures,
not to indulge in reckless pastime of
this kind.
"Finally, while there will be some
confusion and less gain than is ex-
pected, probably, on the whole, this is
merely one of those readjustments in-
evitable in the growth of institu-
tions, and the net result may be for
the best."
