The word proclamation is also used to express the public nomination made of any one to a high office; as, such a prince was proclaimed emperor.

The president's proclamation has not the force of law, unless when authorized by congress; as if congress were to pass an act, which should take effect upon the happening of a contingent event, which was to be declared by the president by proclamation to hive happened; in this case the proclamation would give the act the force of law, which, till then, it wanted.
