As we have seen, there is neither an enumerated nor im- plied power of executive privilege in the Constitution. It is obvious, more— over, that in the Aaron Burr treason trial, that Chief Justice John Marshall, like the flamers of the Constitution, found no evidence that executive priv- ilege was rooted in the separation of powers. Indeed, he ordered Presi- dent Thomas Jefferson to produce a letter requested by Burr. Jefferson complied. For his part, Jefferson made no separation of powers objection and he invoked no Claim of executive privilege to withhold the letter fiom thecourt. The court’s creation of a constitutionally based power of executive priv- ilege has been asseIted to the detriment of the power of Congress to con- duct inquires and investigations into potential executive abuses, to dis- cern the truth of events critical to public understanding, to secure public safety and to legislate potential government reform. There is no evidence that the assertion of executive privilege has served the general welfare. The respect enjoyed by the court is in no small part, derived Hutu its ability to render rulings and write opinions that appeal to reason. But when an opinion is grounded in premises bereft of historical evidence and the customary touchstones of judicial decisions, it is difficult to explain. The assertions of executive privilege has done more harm than good and, in any event, they have denied the citizenry the peace of mind that comes from a satisfying and thorough congressional investigation that yields the truth on which the republic replies. American history affirms the framers’ understanding that the integri- ty of government officials, alone, will not afford a sufficient bulvirark against the abuse of power. That is why the framers wrote a Constitution, replete with checks and balances. Nothing in law or history suggested to them the wisdom of an executive power to conceal information from Congress. Nothing since — either in law or history —— has offered persuasive evi- dence that the framers were mistaken. r Adler is president of The Alturas Institute, created to advance American Democracy through promotion of the Constitution, civic education, equal protection and gender equal— ity.

The Investigation Committee of 1921 said, “The League bosses pretended to enact this law for the poor working man 'who had no home.’ The story of the Home Builders Association shows that it was only political bait.” Moreover, the Association borrowed money from anOther Industrial Commission program, the Bank of North Dakota. This activity was not al- lowed by law, and the action resulted in added debt for taxpayers. The Association had accrued a debt of over a half a million dollars by the time its laws were repealed and the Association liquidated in 1923. The Association did last two years longer than many responsible for its creation. Gover- nor Frazier, Attorney General Lemke, and Commissioner Hagen were recalled from office over the controversy in a special election in 1921. Jewish Cemetery Dakota Datebook written by Tessa Sandstrom . November 24, 2021 Jewish cemeteries and memorials are scattered across the continent of Europe from Prague to Barcelona, and many are found in the city centers to pay tribute to a people who lived throth many hardships. North Dakota may seem far away from all of that history, but on the vast, bare plains of Ramsey County, North Dakota has its own memorial to a Jewish settlement. The Sons of Jacob Cemetery is little known to most in the state, but on this day in 1971, the Devil’s Lake Journal brought'this unique history and land back into the present. ‘ ' The article came after a recent visit of two Jewish descendants whose family had tried to homestead near Garske, asmall village in Ramsey Coun- ty. The visitors, Stewart Stern of Hollywood and Jeff Kaufmann of Santa Monica, were thought to be the only descendants of the Jewish pioneers to visit since the settlement disbanded in the early 1900s. Stern and Kaufmann had come to retrace the steps of their relatives, from the settlement in Ramsey County, to Rolla where their relatives traded furs with the Native Americans. While on their visit in the Lake Region, the two visited Stem’s family’s homestead. Following their visit, they hoped to visit Stem’s uncle, Adolf ZUkOT, and present him with soil fromthe old homestead and with pictures of the cemetery. lukor had been one of the early pioneers to move into the Lake Region. Zukor had come from a family of vineyard farmers, and much like the other pioneers who staked out claims in the Lake Region, he had hopes of making a living on his own land. Immigrants began moving into the area in the summer of 1882, but the winter proved difficult for the pioneers. They lived in insufficient homes and were unaccustomed to the harsh North Dakota weather conditions. Poor conditions and unlucky crop failures the following summer plagued the inexperienced immigrants. Many families moved out within the next few years, and the situation of the Jewish settlements grew more dire. Relief came in the winter of 1888, when they began receiving welfare from sympathetic Jews in the Twin Cities. It wasn’t long before contributions came from across the nation. Settlers held out for several years with the financial aid of the cities, but a bitter rivalry soon grew between Minneapolis and St. Paul over the Dev- il’s Lake settlement. St. Paul believed it had done more than its share for the Devil’s Lake colony. Meanwhile, Minneapolis was requesting aid from non-Jews, and St. Paul believed Minneapolis’ actions were “making beggars of the Devil’s Lake colony.” Despite the rivalry, the settlement persist- ed several more years. By 1912, it was the oldest Jewish settlement in the Northwest. The small village retained a sense of livelihood with its own rabbi and teacher, and farmers were having more success with crops. By 1920, however, the families had drifted away, and many younger people went to the cities. The cemetery now remains the only remnant of the brief, yet persistent Jewish settlers of the Lake Region. “Dakota Datebook" is a radio series from Prairie Public in partnership with the State Historical Society of North Dakota and with fimding from the North Dakota Humanities Council.
