In 18Ö9 ÏIenrv BarSs wautcd to take a contract fur supplying the State with stationerj, but the constitution was in the way, no contrast oould be awarded to n nieniber of the Legislature. Henr.? Barns reaiguod hU seit, was awardcd the coutract, and filed his suretias fjr the compliancj with its terms. Henuy Barns now has Semt'.iri;il aspiratior.s agSfii. n:id harfag assi-nor] his contract, considers himsolf cligible for reelection, and seeks a nomination. But in aiisivï ti su inuiry, Hüq. Jacob M! Howa?.i, the great oonstitutional expoi:ndcr of the party, and legal adviser of the State, declarea th;it a contractor cannot make himself cligible to a seat in the Legislature by assigning his contract. The Legislature cannot absolve hira from it, the State must look to him and his sureties for its faithful performance, and uutil lis expiration he cannot hold a seat b the Legislature.
