Tho Supremo Court, in supjiort
of its position that "anarchy
would bo produced instead of
ordor" by tho opernt'on of tho
Constitution in a newly acquired
territory, urgen that if it wtroso
oparativo, "trado with other coun
tries might bs Bitspondod becaueo
there was no law rxtending tho

tho collection of dutioi undor
In tho Poacoik cnB', in which
tho foregoing languago is ueod,
tho court corrojtly enough up
holds that portion of the joint
resolution of automation whioh
provides that "until legislation
sbill ho enacted extonding United
States customs laws and regula
tions to tho Hawaiian Islands,
tho existing customs rotations of
tho Hawaiian Islands with tho
United States and other countries
hall remain unchanged." lint
the court fallaciously and untie
cosearily bases its decision in
that caeo upon a theory of tho
"inchoate" annexation of tho Ha
waiian lilandn, and upon an ela
borate discussion to rid itself of
tho operation of many provisions
of tho Constitution of tho United
States iu these, islnndel It urges
that that portion of tbo Constitu
tion which requires "all duties, ex
cises mil imposts to be uniform
throughout tho Unitnl Stales," is
and must bo inoporativo here, am)
it ptocoedfl to arguo thorefrom aud
declaro that niatiy otlur provisions
of tho Ootibtitution do not operato
in those islands of their own pro

to lay tho foundation for deciding
that tho amendments to tho Con
stitution, regulating persnnnl
rights, and prohibiting involun
tary servitude arc not in force in
All of tliio discussion in foreign
to tho question involved in the
Peacock caie, and is more obiter
dictum, and not authority.
It was Hiiflicient for all purposes
of the decision of tho quostion there
involved, to cito and rely upon tho
decisions of tho Su promo Court of
tho United Slatos which hold that
the annexation of now territory
to the United States, does not
mako tho seaports bordering there
upon doraost'c ports, until Con
gf(63 makes them fuel) and, ox
teuds the operation of its uniform
custom laws to them; that Con
gross has tho power to cstubli&h
domestic ports, and the Constitu
tion is not violated, tho custom
laws of tho United Stales operate
uniformly iu all domestic ports
nor it is violated becnuso a port in
uewly annexed territory is not im

Tho Constitution gives Con
gress tho "power to levy and col
lect taxes, duties, imposts aud ex
oisoe," and in immedinto con
nection therewith provides that
"duties, imposts and excises
shall be uniform throughout the
United States." Tho context bIiows
that tho provision for uniformity
is addressed as a limitation of the
poworof Congressional legislation
upon that subject, and has no ap
plication to local legislation. The
power of Congress to establish
ports of entry is not limited. Hut
when it sees fit to establish do
mestic ports of entry in tho har
hoiB of a new tertitory and ostab
IMips customs laws lliercfor tho
provision for uniformity of legis
lation on that subject applies to
such laws, Tho mistake has hoen
niado by tho Supremo Court
of sep Milting tho constitutional
provision for nuifoimity of duties,
impo3tu und excises from ito con.
text, iu connection with tho legis
lative powor of Congress, and in
assuming that tho continuauco of
local Hawaiian customs, until
Congress logislatoB and makes Ho-
uoluln a domcDiio hnrbor. would
bo uu-couititutional, if tho Con
stitutional provision for uniformi
ty woro allowed to opetate at all.
That Constitutional provision is
oporativo ovory where aud always
upon Congressional legislation in
ports niado domestic by act of
Congress. It uow operates here
to piotect us against any uncon
stitutional legislation by Congress
upon that subject. That is all
thoro is of tlm oustoms question.
