Tho Attorney Gonoral ataled

to act in his assumed capacity. He
accepted a suggestion of tho At
torney General that tho papers
might be filod for what thoy wore
Mr. Silliman then went on to
nrguo. It wbb law of tho United
Statos that no rosidonts of newly
acquired territory could bo de
prived of their rights. Tho an
nexation resolution did not intoud
that any rights of aliens in tho
Hawaiian Islands should bo taken
away without duo notico. Ha
waiian laws rotating to Ohinoso
wore not passed for tho bonefit of
tho Chino&o but for that of Ila-
oflicor of tho United Statos Gov
ernment. Honolulu was not a
United States port. The Uuited
StateB Government did not pay
ono cont to Hawaiian customs olli
cors; Prosidout McKiuloy's di
recting ponor over tho nd minis
(ration of tho Hawaiian Inlands
referred to tho laws of tho Repub
lic of Hawaii at Annexation. Mr.
Urowu had no authority hero bo
youd that of suggesting or direct
ing innttorfl of form in anticipa
tion of tho application of tho Chi
nese exclusion laws of iho United
Suto-i. Tho latost of thoso laws,
whioh was pissed in 1893, com
pelled all Chiileso in tho United
StatPH to procure certificates of
residonco within six months of tho
passngo ot tho net. Few if any
Ohinoso iu tho Hawaiian Islands
could comply with that law today.
It was nover intended that tho
United StateB law-) should be en
forced boro until Congress took
action in that regard.
Mr. Silliman quoted authorities
from oasos arising out of variouB.
annexations of torritory by tho
Uuitod States. The principlo oli
cited was that laws might exist
technically in a certain territory
but could not bo onforced without
proper nioauB being provided. In

intondod in tbo annexation resolu
tion that tho peculiar hardships of
the United Statos exclusion laws
should go into effect iu Hawaii
forthwith. Action by Congross
was necossary to dostroy tbo effect
of Hawaiian laws, in everything
wheroin tho annexation rcno u 'on
did not oxprodBly do so. Tho
Chinese olauso in tho resolution
was simply a notico or declaration
of tho policy of tho Unitod States
