Washington, Teh. 8. Tho reports on

Committee, imposing duties equivalent
to 25 per cent of tho American tariff
on goods Imported Into Porto Illco
from tho United States, nnd vlco versa,
WCrO Submitted In tlin Itnimn tn.lnv
The Republicans of the committee, ex
cept aicuui ot Massachusetts, agreed
to report In support of tho bill, dovot
Ing n consldernblo portion of their ar
gument to sustaining tho contention
that tho clauso of the Constitution de
claring thnt "all duties. Imposts and
excises shall bo uniform throughout
tho United States" Is not applicable to
our new possessions, which, they eay,
nro not United States territory within
tho meaning of this declaration.
The Democrats, together with New

Discussing tho question. "Is Porto
Rico Included within tho meaning of
tho term 'United States' In tho Consti
tution?" tho rptinrt isw "Thnf If lo
not so included would neon nppaunt
irom n variety of considerations. It
must be recollected time the term
'United States' has mom ilmn mm
meaning. It means, in the llrot place,
tho sovcral States respectively that
constitute tho Federal Union. It means,
again, in a geographical sonso, nil tho
territory over which the United States
nas junsuiction, just ns the Uiltlsh
Hmplro means nil tho component parts
ot tho kingdom of Great Britain. Dut

In tho Constitution
"So far ns legislation with respect to
theso treaty acquired territories hns
been had, It Is to bo nltt'.lmted to Ino
guarantees secured liy tho tencs of
tho treaty. In tho case of teirltiiiy ac
quired with no limitation upon tho
power of CongrcJ3, ItH power Is nh

lustrated than In tho unbroken lino of

iltorles from ono of tho main articles
of tho Constitution."
After citing many cases In support
of its contention tho report concludes:
"First That upon reason nnd im
thorlty, tho term 'United States' us
used In tho Constitution hns reference
only to tho States that constitute tho
fcuerai union ana does not includo
"Second That tho power of Con

McCnll'H DlttHcntlng Report.
Representative McCall ot Mariachu
setts, tho only neputiltc.au iwmtber of
tho commltteo to dissent from his col
leagues on tho I'orto ntenn bill. In his
sepnrato report says In part:
"Tho pending bill Is, In iny Jtulg-J
monr. n wnll-rnnRliinrril mp.iflnrii frnm
n fiscal standpoint nnd Is likely to pro-
uuco a sumcicnt revenue, l nm unnuio
to givo It my support becnuco It docs
not follow tho rule of uniformity pre
scribed by tho Constitution n inlf
which, In my opinion, cooius Con
gress In legislating for tha territories
of tho United States. I do not think
it material to consider whether tho
Constitution propria vlgoia extends
to tho territory of Porto Illco. Iu my
opinion tho question Involved Is
whether Congress, In legislating for
that territory, Is bound to observe
those limitations upon Its powers
nrlilrtl, nrn Imnnunrl liv flin Pnnaflfll.
tlon, or whether It posseDH tirbltrnry
power, excepting tho power lo estab
lish slavery, and can givorn thai Isl
and other territories ot tho United
States subject only to Its own will. It
Congress Is restrained by tho limita
tions ot tho Constitution It cannot pass
tho pending bill. If, on tho other h.ind,
i It is not bo restrained, but has tho
to pass tho pendliu; bill, then
follows that It also has tho power,
Ipcoplo of I'orto Itlco nro nioicly sub
jects uiinout logni riRiits and rnn
only enjoy their lives nnd property by
tho nrnco of Congress. Hellovlnc thnt
this nssertlon of despotic power Is
contrnry to tho Ufa nnd spirit of our
institutions I nm compelleJ to dissent
from tho recommendation of my col
tongues that tho bill bo passed."
McCall then reviews tho law au
thorities nnd says: "I am uuablo to
find nnv Bimtinrt In Imllrlnl ,lo,.lol,a
for tho doctrlno thnt the Inhabitants
of territories limn no rnnsMlntlnnnl
rlclita. but exist onlv liv flin will nr
Congress. On tho other hand, It has
been repeatedly held by our Supremo
Court that Congress Is bound by re
strictions of tho Constitution In deal
ing with territories."
Tho report of the minority is on ho
general lines of that of McCall.
