xfresidont Dolo was asked by a
Bulletin representative if the
Government had received any in

Tho. President was asked
whother tho "citizens of tho Bo
public of Hawaii," who aro do-
clarod in tho bilt submitted by
tho Commission "to be oitizens of
tho Unitod Statea," includo voters
of tho Bopablio of Hawaii under
letters of denization, and under
certificates of "special rights" for
services rondorodto tho Provision
"No," Mr. Dolo answered. "I
made a strong effort in tho Com
mission to havo voters of the
Bepublio in these classes mado
citizens of tho United Stntos,
but tho Commission decided to
restrict citizonship to thoso -who
were full Hawaiian citizens, by
birth or naturalization, immodj
ately prior to the- transfer of
sovereignty to tho United States.
"Thoro is anothor provision,
however, in tho bill which Booms
to have been left out of tho press
reports. It is one that allows
residenca in tho Hawaiian Islands,
prior, to tho transfer of sovereign
ty, to count the samo as rosidenco
in tho Unitod Staton, as qualifica
tinn for becoming citizens of tho
United States. I think tho period
of rosidenco required is five years.
Under this provision most of tho
voters undor the Bepublio of
Hawaii may easily become citizons
of tho United States."
Section 1 of Articlo 17 of the
Oonsritution of tho Bepublio of
Hawaii do fines who aro citizens of

boforo Congroas doolarod to bo

Nothing moro was heard of tho
