§ 235. “Peace, Order and Good Government.”

It has been already noted in connection with sec. 51 that the words “for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth” do not in any way expand, amplify, or contract the grant of power, nor will they give jurisdiction to the Federal Courts to enquire whether a particular law does, in their opinion, tend to promote peace, or order, or good government. (See Note, § 161, supra).
