Excerpt
PREFACE: THE impendency of constitutional conventions in Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Nebraska and New Hampshire, has stirred up a vast amount of legal and lay discussion as to the nature and powers of such bodies. The Illinois, Nebraska and New Hampshire conventions are expressly authorized by the constitutions of those States. But the Indiana and Massachusetts conventions, not being so authorized, are generally regarded as being revolutionary, and are considered by many to be wholly unconstitutional and void.
