That question involves in its solution the theories upon which the Constitution of the United States was framed. For, if it was ordained and established by one people, then the rela tion of citizenship to the United States was wholly outside of all relation to the States. And the allegiance of those officers was due directly and entirely to the United States. If, on the contrary, the Constitution was ordained and established by the States, in their sovereign and independent character, then allegiance was due primarily to the States, and became due to the United States only through the action of the States. If, therefore, the States, by their sovereign act transferred the allegiance of their citizens to the United States, that allegiance could only be by the act of the State, and remain due only so long as the State continued a party to the Constitution of the United States.
