THK CUSTO.MH qUKHriON.
Tho Advortisor continuing in
its folly of harping on the cus
toms regulation of tho Newlands
resolution, and thoreby malioious
ly misrepresenting the many citi
ziDB who criticise the "constitu
tional" decisiom of the Supreit e
Court, tho following from tho
Bulletin of June 22 is repub
lished by rf quest:
THE roXSTI I OTJONOHAKG.
ED WITH "ANAKOUl'l"
titf CUSTOMS QUES
Tbo Supremo Court, in support
of its position that "anarchy
would bo produced instead of
order" by the oporation of the
Constitution in a uowly acquired
territory, urges that if it woro so
operative. "Inula with other coun
tries might bo suspended because
there was no law extending tho
United States shippiug and cus
tonis laws to tho nowly-ncquirod
territory, and no machinery for
tho collection of duties uudor
United States laws."
In tuo Peacock caao, in which
tho foregoing languago is used,
the court correctly onough up
hokld that portion of the joint
resolution of annexation which
provides that "until legislation
shall bo enacted extending United
States customs laws and regula
tions totho Hawaiiinn Islands,
tho existing customs relations of
tho Hawaiian Inlands with tho
United States and other countries
shall remain unchanged." But
tho court fallaciously and unne
cessarily bases its decision in
that case, upon a theory of the
"inchoate" nnnoxatiou of the Ha
waiiau Islands, and upon an ela
borate discussion to rid itself of
the operation of many provisions
ot tuo Uonstitutiou of tho United
States iu thoso islands I It urges
that that portion of the Canstitu
tion which requires "all duties, ex
cises and imposts to be uniform
throughout the United States," is
and must bo inoperativo here, and
it proceeds to arcuo tuorolrom aud
declare that many other provisions
of tho Constitution do not operate
in theso islands of their own pro
per vigor. They havo thus sought
to lay tho foundation for deciding
that tho amendmonts to tho Con
stitution regulating personal
rights, and prohibiting involun
tary servitude am not in force in
All of this discussion is foroicn
to the question involved in tho
Peacock case, and is moro obiter
dictum, and not authority.
It was sufficient for all purposes
of thodecision ofthoqueetiou thero
involved, to cite and roly upon the
decisions of the Supremo Court of
tho United Htutes which hold that
the annexation of now torritory
to tho United States, does not
mako the seaports bordering thero
upon domestic ports, until Con
gress makos them such and, ox
teuds tho operation of its uniform
custom laws to them; that Con
gress has the power to establish
domestic ports, and tho Constitu
tion is not violated, tho custom
laws of tho United States operate
uniformally in all domestio ports
nor it is violated becauso a port in
newly annexed territory is not im
mediately mado by Congress a do
mesne port ot tbo United estates
and bocauso the usual customs are
Wo agree that tho Constitution
of the United States should be
reasonably construod. But wo
iuiist that, when so construed, all
of its provisions should bo hold to
operate of their own vigor uni
formly iu the proper Hold of their
The Constitution gives Con
gress the "power to levy and col
lect taxes, duties, imposts and ex
cisoB," and in immediate con
nection therewith provides that
"duties, imposts and excises
shall bo uniform throughout tho
United states." The context shows
that tho provision for uniformity
is addressed as a limitation of tho
power of Congressional legislation
upon that subject, aud has no ap
plication to local legislation. The
power of Congress to establish
ports of entry is not limited. But
when it soes fit to ostablish do
mestio ports of entry iu the har
bors of a new torritory and estab
lishes customs laws tboreforo the
provision for uniformity of legis
lation on that subject applies to
such laws. The mistako haB boen
mado by the Supremo Court
of separating tho constitutional
provision for uniformity of duties,
imposts and excises from its con
text, in connection with tho legis
lative power of Congress, and in
assuming that the continuance of
local Hawaiian customs, until
Congress legislates and makes Ho
oolulu a domestio harbor, would
he un-constitutional, if the Con
stitutional provision for uniformi
ty were allowed to operate at all.
That Constitutional provision is
oporativo every whore and always
upon Congressional legislation in
ports mado domestio by aot of
Congress. It now operates here
to protect us acraiuat any uncon
stitutional legislation by Congross
upon that subject. That is all
there is or tbo customs ques
tion. There is no plausible pretext
for charging the Constitution of
tho United States with being pro
ductive of "anarohy in place of
order" by tho operation of any
provision thereof in its appro
priate field of operation; noithor is
thero any plausible pretext for
arguing from a ptoper disposi
tion of the custom question,
against tho operation of the
amondmouts of the constitution of
tho United Sta03 which operate
of their own proper vigor every
where and always within tli
soveroign dominion of tho United
tatee, for tho protection of the
