Referring to the bill (S. G2.'3)
now pending before tho Semite Cim

Porto Rico, to enact a prohibitory
law' for the Territory of Hawaii, I
dcslro tb submit tno following fads
and considerations, each of which
has a direct bearing on the princi
ple linohtd lu tho proposed legis
First. That for over half a con
tury previous to annexation Hawaii
enjoyed a constitutional governiue.r.
and was recognized as an Indepen
dent nation, both by the European
governments and by tho United
Second. That Hawaii did not be
come a Torrftory of the UnltcTI State?
cither through conquest or purchase;
that Its annexation was brought
about solely nnd only by a treaty
negotiated betweon two sovereign
hatlons by commissioners appointed
by tho United States of. America
and the Republic of Hawaii, respec
tively, nnd treating as equals.
Third. That the treaty entered
into on tho lCth of June, 1897, by
tho representatives of tho two Gov

which such annexation should bo

Washington on, tho 10th day of Juno
A. D. 189.7ir,,
Fifth. Thai tho above treaty Was
ratified on tho part of tho Unite 1
States by thptjolnt resolution of an
nexation approved July 7, 1S98.
That resolution recites. In part,
"Whereas the Government of u(
Republic of Hawaii having in due
form signified Its consent, In tho
manner provided by Its constitution,
to cedo absolutely and without re
serto to the United States of Aino
rlca all right of sovereignty, or
whatsoever kind, In and over tho Ha
waiian Islands, otc, Thoreforo
"Itetolved, 'etc., That said cession
Is accepted, ratified, and confirmed,"
In ordor to further carry out tho
mutual charncter of that treaty the
Joint resolution further provided:
"The President shall appoint five
commissioners, ait least two of whom
shall bo residents of tho Hawaiian
Islands, who shnll recommend to
Congress such, legislation concerning
tho Hawaiian Islands as they saall
deem necessary or proper."
President McKlnley, In pursunnco
of tho above, appointed Hon. S. M.
Cullom nnd Hon. John T. Morgan.

Territory of Hawaii In Its organic
act certain broader powers than have
utvi uucn hi, vii in mi uiiivi icur
tory of the United Stntes.
Seventh. That because ot the sat
isfactory, showing mado by tho terri
torial government ot Hawaii, slncd
nnncxntlon Congress has seen fit to
enlarge thoso-ppwers of self-government
In certain respects, and In no
case horotofore havo thoso puwrs
been lessened or Infringed upon.
Eighth. That section C5 of tli-
organic act provides:
"That the legislative powers of tho
Territory shall extend to all right
ful subjects of legislation not Incon
sistent with tho Constitution and
laws ot the United States locally ap
plicable." Ninth. That, acting under tho
lcglslatho authority vestod In It by
tho organic net, (he territorial legis
lature has enacted a rigid law for
the regulation of the liquor trafila
In Hawaii. Under this Jaw a board
ot license commissioners Is appoint
ed by tho governor for each county,
Tho "members of these boards ervf
without remuneration, and no ono
Interested, cither directly or Indi
rectly, In the liquor business can hq
u members of such boards' The citi
zens now serving on these boarus
are, for tho most part, men of dU-,
tlnctly temperanco sentiment. In
fact. In the county o( Kauai the
board hag refused to Ibsuo any si'
loon licenses whatever, thus prac
tically establishing local prohibition,
en one of tho four largest Islands of
Section 1 of tho Hawaiian liquor
law provides that
"Hach llcenso board, within its
owu county, shall have tho sole
power, authority, and discretion to
grunt, refuse, suspend, revoke, reg
ulate, und control licenses to Bell In
toxicntiug liquors In such county,
subject only to the limitations and
dlrtctlonsvin this act contained. The
oxerclsa of tho power, authority, and
discretion by the act vested In the
board shall he flnnt, In each case, and
shall not be rovlawablo by or appeal
able to any court or trlbundl."
Tho law further provides that
written consent to granting of li
censes must bo obtained from n ma
jority of the holders of all tho real
ostato situated within 2S0 feet of tho
proposed location, If within ono-hair1
mllo of a first or second-class pott
office, Outside tho hair-mlto radius
a majority of ull holders within
1000 feet must be secured.
Ilond must bo' given by licensees
for compliance with all regulations
of the law. Neither women nor mi
nors ure permitted to enter saloons;
and gambling nnd frco lunches are
strictly prohibited. .-
Not only Is tho sale of liquor for
bidden to any woman or minor, but
nlso toany person "whose vlfo, son,
daughter, brother, Hlstcr, parent,
guardian, or employer ,hall have
given notice, as provided, forbidding
tho sale of liquor to such person.
Licenses nro granted only after a
public hearing, whoro opportunity!
given uny citizen to show cause why
tho llcenso should ho refused, oven
though nil requirements ot tho law
have been compiled with; and no new
llcenso can bo issued to anouo who
has once had a llconse revoked. jhnd even achieved a territorial's
The parts of the law here referred tus; that for three-quarters of!
fo form only the main lines of tho century Uhey havo had a publ
llgld-Virvclllanco of the salo of school system, so thorough and e
liquor provided for In the new Ha
waiian liquor law of 1907.
If the Congress should pass a bill
repealing the liquor law enacted ov!
the Hawaiian legislature, nnd thus
Icavo the liquor business wholly uu-'
restricted In Hawaii, such an act havo visited Hawaii stneo anns
would at once be recognized ns a' Hon Is that it Is one of the. in
violation of the rights conferred on progressive American comniunll
the citizens of Hawaii to regulate under the flag. Upon what'grout
tneir domestic a flairs and to csub-
clcnt that the percentage of llllt
ncy among Hawallans Is less tb
that of the great State of Massacl
setts. v .
The unanimous testimony of ct
ly 100 members of Congress
llsh their own police regulations.
Roth In principle and in fact tho
pending bill similarly Invades the
self-governing powers conferred by
Cpngress on the Territory ot Hawjlt
to bo exercised by Its elected legisla
ture; It would, In effect, be no le-s
an invasion of tho right of home
rule than would an act legalizing
the Bale of liauor ta all nersons and
in all' places In tho Territory.
When the poople of Hawaii gave
up' their Independent goe?unte.'it
td become a Territory ot th) UnlUd
States they knew that Cougiss
would of nccossfty havo plur.ary lo
gul authority to icglslata 01 uny sub
ject whatever affecting the Terri
tory; In other wordr, that while tho
Congress, by the organic ac:, reserv
ed certain legislative powers to leg
islate on all subjects affeV.lng llioie
Islands would still Inner li the
Rut tho peopto of Hawaii trans
ferred the su promo authority of their
government to tho United States,
believing that tho establUlvil piin
clplcs of this Nation woull never
admit of Its Interference with rights
ot solf-gcvernment conferred on a
Territory particularly wjien Tin In
rlnpedent country was made a Ter
ritory of tho United States for tho
mutual benefit ot both fountrlcs;
mid we still bellove that the Con
gress, in legislating for Hawaii, will
bo governed by moral obligations
and a regard for good faith' and will
not, knowingly and without good
cause, revoke a previously conferred
and Important power ot self-government,
ecn Uiough It havo tho naked
legal power so to do.
It Is noteworthy that tho pending
bill docs not provldo for prohibition
"In tho Territories of the United
StatcB,'' nor even for "tho insular
Territories nnd possessions of tlio
United States?' Instead It Is limited
to Hawaii only Implying that such
paternal legislation Is needed more
there than In Arizona, New Mexico,
Porto Rico nnd tho Philippines,
I resent this reflection on tho peo
ple of Hawaii, becauso there are 110
facts and conditions to Justify It.
As already stated above, the li
quor laws In Hawaii ure mnro res
trictive than In the average Stato
where tho traffic Is permitted qt all.
As to the character of tho Hawaiian
people nnd their capacity for self
government, It should bo romembor
c"d that through their legislature,
elected 'under the Constitution, tho
Hawaiian people had self-government'
