Supreme Court Will Now
Wrestle With the
CLOSING ARGUMENT MADE
BY ATTORNEY ALBRICH
Questions Fired at Him by Justices
Ten Days Allowed for Further Brief
Protest Against Jefferson's
Washington, Dec. 20. The clos
Inn argument In the Philippine) and
l'orlii ltloo cases was ninde in the Cull
ed States Supreme Court today, run! the
casei were submitted for the final ad
judication of the court. As the Oov
crmnent'a cose had been closed liy tho
Attorney (leneral. It remained only to
hear the senior counsel In tho Philip
pine case, Charles II. Aldrlch of Chi
cago, former Solicitor Cenernl. who
had one and n half hours remaining of
the five hours given to the plaintiffs.
Mr. Aldrlch had before .him the
pltlntlft's brief nnd a voluminous port
folio of notes, but he spoke freely, with
only occaslonnl reference to them. At
the outset he said he would- confide
himself largely to legal argument, fol
lowing tho Attorney General's points
and seeking to meet them, although
ho regarded much that the Attorney
General had presented as Irrelevant.
He first directed his attention to the
circumstances under which tho Gov
ernment carno Into existence, the strug
gle for liberty and the Amcrlcan-'pro-tcst
against England's assertion of tho
taxing power over tho American colo
nies. With this history before us. he
said, It was a remarkable fact that the
Attorney Genernl of the United States,
over 100 years after the great Btrnggle
which founded tho American Govern
ment, should come into this court and
nssert a taxing power moro oxtrcmo
than .had been asserted by the most
anient defenders of England's taxing
newer over the colonies.
Mr. Aldrlch spoke of the decision of
Justice Marshall In Loughborough Vs.
Blake as of decisive importance, nnd he
summed up that decision as bearing on
the present conditions as follows:
"That the' power to tax, levy duties,
etc., extends to the entire United
"That the term 'United States' cm
braces 'our great Republic, which is
composed of States and Territories.'
"That it Is not less necessary, on the
principles of our constitution, that uni
formity in the imposition of Imposts,
duties and excises should bo observed
In tho one than tho other.
"It follows from the above that the
rights and obligations of the territory
thus a part of tho United Stntes and the
Inhabitants are measured and tested by
As to the contention that tho Philip
pines were not n part of the United
States. Mr. Aldrlch said:
"If the Islands ceded by Spain are
foreign territory, then our country
would have as Its commercial represen
tatives the foreign Consuls, who would
perform the requisite official nets pre
scribed by our customs laws regarding
shipments or merchnnts from any or
these Islands to nnv nart of the United
States. If the islands are not Ameri
can territory, they must still be Span
ish, for It Is not pretended that nny
other nation foreign to tho United
States haH acquired any sovereignty
over them, nor Is It pretended that tho
Philippine Islands, In tho eye or inter
national law, occupy tho status of an
The Attorney General's Interpreta
tion of tho word "sovereignty," Mr.
Aldrlch said, was that this Government
hnd a right to do whnt any other na
tion does. This word had becomo most
popular slnco wo entered upon a colo
nial policy. But, Mr. Aldrlch declared,
tho sovereignty of the Onlted States
was ono exercised under tho constitu
tion, nnd If wo are In tho Philippines or
Porto Rico It Is because of tho powers
given by tho constitution.
Justice White Interposed a question
when Mr. Aldrlch referred to tho Am
erican protest against British "taxa
tion without representation."
Would this mean, tho Justice asked,
that Congress could not tax tho new
possessions until they were represent
ed In Congress?
Mr. Aldrlch said that It did not go
that far and It wns sufficiently answer
ed In tho case' of Loughborough vs.
Blako. ' '
Mr. Aldrlch said ho entered a protest
against the uso of Jefferson's name In
support of tho proposition that the
United States can acquire nnd hold ter
ritory Indefinitely. It was settled be

Justice Gray asked his first question
nt this point, Inquiring If counsel held
Hint the Louisiana Requisition was un
constitutional. Mr. Aldrlch answered that ho did
not so hold, but that Mr. Jefferson had
so held, and the arguments of that dny
showed how political Influences affect-
., .I--, u..ii. i
Justice Brown asked If It was safo,R5n' n S ot nlr K1"18 t0 ll!ls 8ldc "l
to baso Judicial action on the argu-
ments of contemporary politicians.
I think not," answered Mr, Ald
rlch, "and I .refer to them only be
cause they occup three-fourths of the
brief of the Attorney Oenernl."
In speaking of executive action Mr.
Aldrlch referred to President McKln-
Icy s message stating that It was "our
plain duty to nbollslvall customs tar
iffs between tho United States and
Justice Shlras asked If the President
was then speaking of the duty of Con
gress, Mr. Aldrlch said he supposed the
President meant the duty of thn nation.
Justice Harlan also asked If the
treaty, power could go beyond the four
teenth amendment to the constitution,
to which Mr. Aldrlch answered that
treaties could not override tho constl-.
After citing Mr. Mansfield s opinion...
on the limitation of the nower of the.ullnK aln l "
King nnd Parliament, Mr. Aldrlch said:

Mr. Aldrlch closed with nn elaborate
reference to the work of our forefa
thers, which was not for their dny. but
for all time. As soon ns ho finished
tho court turned to other cases, after

ten days to file a further brief.
