§ 442. “The States shall Indemnify the Commonwealth.”

The indemnity here given seems, by the subsequent words, to be limited to the principal and interest payable by the Commonwealth, and not to include charges other than interest, or the expenses of administration, which are apparently to be treated as expenditure of the Commonwealth, and charged against the States (so long as sec. 89 or sec. 93 is in operation) in proportion to population.
