There was no objection, j
Mr Klajdi'ii. Mr. Chairman, I
would like to nsk some questions of
tho gentleman from Michigan What,
Is the purpOHO of the bill? It Is Im
possible, In the cwnfuslon that pro
Mills In the Houso, to hear It. I un
derstand that It Is to change the gov
ernment of a whole people nnd Is an
ltniortant matter. 1 would Ilka to
know why It Is done and how- It Is bo
Mr. Hamilton It Is nn Important
matter. I shall lmo to claim the in-
Tlulgencc of tho committee becuuse my
physical condition Is such that I real-
y shall bn In soma difficulty with a
nglhy explanation of tho bill. IJrief-'
ly, the bill proposes -to amend the or
ganic act of the Territory of Hawaii
that Is, nine sections of the organic,
rtct of the Territory of Hawaii, thnt
act having passed some ten years ago
Tho conditions In Iho Territory have
been so changed as to make It neces
sary, ns It is thought, to limit e1 these
changes. A bill was Introduced pro
posing amendment of tha organic net
of tho Territory of HnwnM Uboht if
ear ago. That bill was conslljercd
b) tho Committee on the Territories!
of tha House, but no action wait had.
Afterward n similar bll was consider
ed In tho Territory of Hawaii, wldoly
advertised, and tho Opinions j)t iho
people woro asked In rtdalldh In .the
bill Two sessions of ihb tcrHtorlal.
legislature devoted some timtl to the"
consideration of tho various phases of
the proposed amendment ot tho or
gsnlc net, and"flnally. ln November,
1009, at a special session of tho terrl
tnrlnl legislature, almost exclusho at'
tcntlon was given to this subject ot
tlio amendment of the organic act ot
Resolutions were adopted requesting
Congress to mako the changes pro
posed. In conformity with the resolu
tion of the leglslaturo of tho Territory
of Hawaii, the bill haying been Intro
duced and referred to' the Committee
on the Territories, that cornijllltpe
gave careful consideration to this I
for the amendment of the organic ac
nnd (conducted hearings. Governor
Krear of tho Tcrrltory appeared be
fore the committee and dlscfissed at
length the proposed changes'"
I am Inclined to think that the
changes proposed can be be.(ter rnn
sldcred by the Houso when It tafces
the bill up for conslderajjor) of the
sections In the regular Order. Tf)
most Important amendment propose')
Is one relating to the public lands and,
tho homcstcadlng system' of the'Ter.
rltory, to which not only lhcTlcgj"sa
ture of Hawaii gave very careful con
sideration, hut also the Committee on
the Territories. A subcommittee was
appointed to go over tho bill, and that
committee paid special attention to
that part of the bill rolalng to the
homestead provision and tho changes
proposed. After consideration, tha
Committee on tho Territories unani
mously reported tho bill which Is be
fore tho House.
Mr. Mann. If the gcntelman will
Mr. Hamilton. Yes.
Mr. Mann. Tho bill proposes to
amend the organic act In reference
to tha Territory of Hawaii, and hence
Is quite Important. Would it bo con
venient for tho gentlemnn, In his
state of health, tn take tha bill up
and Inform us In a general way whut
Is proposed by theso different sec
tions. Mr. Hamilton. I will endeavor to
make an explanation of the changes
proposed. It 'proposes -
That section 5 of an act entitled
"An act to provide for a govern
ment of tho Torrltory pf Hawaii,"
approved April 30, 1900, Is hereby
amended to read as follows:
"Bee. 6. That tho Constitution
'and, except, as otherwise provided,
nil tho laws or the United States,
'Including tho laws carrying gen
eral appropriations, which itro Hot-'
locally Inapplicable. shnll'have: thd4-1
same force and effect wlthln'-thd'
nald Territory as elscwhBrd'In'tho'"
United States " -'' '"'
Now, before passing teMno proviso,
I call attention to the words ' Includ
ing laws carrying general appropri
ations." That Is tho only chango mado
In tho existing law. H Is designed to
correct an Injustice, growing out ot a
ruling of tho Comptroller of tho Treas
ury, which holds that no part of n
general appropriation for departments
of the Government can bo expended In
Hawaii without mention of that Ter
ritory In statute.
Mr. Tawney. Will tho gontlcman
permit nn Interruption?
Mr. Hamilton. Yes.
Mr. Tawney- In what respect Is the
(Territory of Hawaii different from the
Territories of New Mexico and Ari
zona In respect to exjicndltiires of
money from general appropriations!
Mr. Hnmlltnn. In no respect! nnd
thnt Is where the Injustlco came In.
Tawuey, And you . propose to
departments of the Oovcrnmcnt could
be expended In Hawaii without Bpcclal
mention In tho statute.
I Mi Tnwnc). Is It not true that that
was tho Intention of Congress: that
no pirt of any general appropriation
should bo expended for Hawaii or any
of the Territories without special ail-
Mr. Hamilton. General approprla

Mr. Lloyd. Mr. Chairman, thut Is
the very olnt. Tho Comptroller of
tho Treasury has decided that appro

could not bo expanded In Hawaii.

be In tiffed In Hawaii, but how docs'

Mr. Hamilton. Let me read from
page SO of tho hearings In relation to
Mr. Tnwney. Mr. Chairman, when
Hawaii Is in need of nn appropilatlon
for any scientific work coming proper-
1) under the Jurisdiction of the Kciler
! nl Government, tho estimate Is made
iiouso having jurisdiction over nppro
prlatlons tho appropriation will bo
mado for that scrvico as has nlwajs
heretofore been mode for that service.
This blanket extension of all general
appropriations to tho Territory of Ha
waii would put the Territory' of Ha
waii on a different plane entirely from
tho other Territories of the United
States. Tho en so cited by the gentle
man from Michigan In regard to tho
geologists Hawaii has loaned to her
tho geologists on the samo terms and
conditions that tho geologists aro
loaned to tho States
Mr. Hamilton. The gentleman Is In
error about that.
Mr. Tawney. I am not In error;
the)' loan them to the States, nnd
they also loan them to tho Territory
Mr. Hamilton. Yes; but tho Tcrrl'
tory of Hawaii pays the wholo bill,
whereas In California, California Is
permitted to pay a part and tho Gov;
eminent pnjs a part. In tho case ot
Haw all discrimination is mado, and
Hawaii Is compelled to pay tho wholo
Mr. Tnwney. I do not think, as a
matter of fact, that tho Geological
Survoy has any right, legal or other
wise, to tako any part of tho appro
priation made from tho Federal Treas
ury and expend it In co-operation with
the 8 tat ok in tho making ot topo
graphic and geologic surveB in thoso
Mr. Mann. Why not?
Mr. Tawney. Becauso there Is no
authority for It In law,
Mr. Lloyd. That In the very point
(hat Is sought to be remedied hero.
Mr. Tawney. I do not know how
they can get around It tn Hawaii and
not get around It In the States.
Mr. Llojd. Under existing rulings
It is Impossible now to get any part
that general appropriation to use
Hawaii, and the one purpose of
this- provision Is 'to mako that pos
Mr. Tawney. I.ct mo say to the
gentlemnn that In cases of that kind,
where the Geological Survey wants to
perform any scrvico within tho Juris
diction of tho United States, they ask
a' specific appropriation for that ser
vice, as they do In Alaska. Wo mako
the appropriation for tho geological'
surveys of Alaska and also for other
service, and other services that the
Geological Burvey are performing In
thd Territory of Alaska. Tho appro
priations are made specifically for
that purpose. Wo know (hen how
much, is to be expended, and wo know
then whether tho money is being ex
pended for tho purposes for which tho
appropriation Is mado; but I venture
to say that Hawaii has never been
denied a slnglo appropriation for any
service that it has ever asked for, un
less. In tho Judgment of the commit
tco having Jurisdiction of tho appro
priation, that; service was not neces
sary, I do not think It Is wise for Con
gress io put a provision of law In hero
that will extend general! all appro
priations for tho performance of any
service In Hawaii for which appropri
ation Is made without specific author
ization. ' .

feet that it has had In the States and
Territories of tho United States
Mr, Tawney. That language Is In
the law today, nnd thnt language re
fern only to tho Constitution and laws
of tho United Stales. Now, you in
Bert "Including Inws earning general

appropriations available, regardless of
the limitations (hat apply with respect
to tho application of tho general laws
of tho Untied Slates. This Is a propo
altlon (hat has novcr In my experience
tri this House been proposed before
to mako available all ot tho general

ment In n Territory, as It does -In this
case In tho Territory of Hawaii.
Mr. Chandler. And It.llmlts It to tho
namo effect (hat it has clsowhcra In
the United States., and It docs not go
beyond that. It simply puts tho Tor
rltory of Hawaii on the samo footing
as otner Territories and States of tho
Mr. Tawney This places In the ills

Mr. Chandler. It puts Hawaii on
tho samo footing as every othor Ter

Mr. Tawney. No; it does not; It
puts It on 2 feet moro, becauso you
extend to Jho Territory of Hawaii tho
expenditure of all of tho general ap
propriations of tho United States Gov;
Mr. Chandler. An they aro extended
elsewhere hi tho United States; and
that Is the limitation.
Mr. Tawney. Wo nro making now

wo aro doing', by making annllcablo
for cxpcndlturo In that Territory all of

ernment. Mr, Chandler, 'As expended elso
where In tho',' United States. That Is
tho limitation on it, and nu can not
get bejond thoso words. It limits It
and puts It on tho same footing that
every other Sfato and Territory of this
Union Is, and Haw nil Is entitled to bo
put on the samo footing.
Mr. Tawney. Is thore any other
Territory that has languago appl) Ing
to It like this? Not one.
Mr. Hamilton. Mr. Chairman, I
bolleve I have tho floor.
Mr. Good. I doubt It.
Mr. Hamilton. Mr. Chairman. I
havo a general Impression that I have
the floor; nnd It that Is true. I dcslro
to Interrupt tbo gentleman from Min
nesota (i'r. Tawnoy) long enough to
seo whether w.o can get our bearings:
Does tho gentleman from Minnesota
admit that Hawaii Is a Territory of
the United States, to begin with?
Mr. Tawney. Mr. Chairman, the
gentleman from Michigan knowa that
know that the Territory of Hawaii Is
a Territory pf tho United States, and
therefore I do not think (hat ho has
any business to ask ma a question of
Mr. Hamilton. Then I want to call
tho gentleman's attention to section
1891 of the Ilevlscd Statutes of tho
Tho Constitution, and all tho
lawB ot the United Stutcs which
are not locally Inapplicable, shall
havo the samo force and offect
within all tho organized Terri
tories, and. In every Territory
hereafter organized, as elsewhere
In tho United States.
Tha,t carries the Constitution and
all laws ot tho United States, does U
npt, to (be Territory ot Hawaii?
Mr, Tawney, Certainly It does.
Mr. Hamilton. pVory well, then. Tho
difficulty Is this, that a discrimination
has been made agalqst Hawaii here
tofore which it Is now Bought to cor
rect. Governor Fronr says;
It was on this ground, not that
the status ot Hawaii was different
from any other Territory, but In
the orgaulc act ,c!f the Territory
Congress specially provided that
there should bo a customs district
established there, and, an Inter
- nnl revenue district established
thoro, and 4t was hold that by the
expression -of the one thero was
an exclusion of tho other. In
other words, that no federal ser
vice could be performed In Ha
waii where the work of tho par
ticular department bad not been
t expressly extended there by Con
gress, In other words, Mr. Chairman, a
discrimination was mado against Ha
waii, and the laws were not held to be
applicable to Hawaii under this sec
tion 1891, It scorns porfectly plain,
Mr, Tawnoy, It is not held thnt tlio
law was not applicable,

OF EASTERN SUGAR
CLAIM MOTIVE IS SPITE WORK
One Hundred Thousand Bags From
the East Around the Horn to
Invade Brother'! Territory
Mutt Sell at Lou.
8AN FHANCISCO, May 22 That
other than commercial motives
prompted tho announced shipment
of 100,000 bags of sugar by Clans
A, Spreckcls from tho ttast to In
vade the territory of the Western
Sugar Hennery, controlled by John
D. Spreckcls, Is tho opinion of men
who handle sugar In this market.
Louis Saronl, ono ot tho largest
sugar dealers on the Coist, when
nsked his view on the threatened
Bhlpmcnt of eastern sugar to San
Krunclsco jesterdny, wng disinclin
ed td talk, because of his friend!)
relations to Clans A. (Oils) Sprcik
ets of tho Federal' neflnlng Company,
"From a commercial standpoint I
consider this shipment Irregular and
am therefore obliged to bellovo It to
be tho result of MV. Gu Sprcckels'
personal differences with his broth
er, Mr. John D. Sprcckels. It ap
pears to me, It this be the case,
that Mr, Gus Spreckcls Is Inflicting
a greater "punishment upon the Job
ber and distributer here than upon
the sugar refinery, as. In previous
contests of this kind, the result, has
Bhown that the loss tails principal
ly upon the Jobber.
"Tho publication of this alleged
shipmint of sugar has naturally had
a tendency to frighten the retailer
from bu)lng In more than In hand
to hand purchases, thus vastly In
creasing the 'cost lof dolveHcs and
disturbing conditions unnecessarily
fully threo months In advanco ot
"Oub Spreckcls Is thoroughly fa
miliar with the largo,, Burpluj -or
sugar refined on the Pacific Coast
above tho actuat consumption here.
no must therefore know that this
100,000 bags will Incrcaso tho sur
plus by this amount. Consequent
ly, with his superior judgment,' ho
can not qxpect a favorable market
hero for his sugur In Sn,n Francisco
on the arrival of this alleged ship
ment. Therefore, (b do1 "credit to
Ous Bprcckels; business Judgment, I
can not possibly regard this sh
mjnt as merely a commercial ven
ture. ThU leaves open to me no
other plausible explanation for his
action than that of retaliation. It
seems to mo that personal difficulties
between Individuals might be set
tled In some other way."
Will Affect Jobbers.
The theory that the Jobbers and
large wholesalers will suffer moro
In a sugar war than the two fac
tions In the Sprcckels family Is
based on whnt Is understood to have
been the experience In other similar
situations, when the refineries have
given a secret rebate to one single
Jobber, and thus forced ho others
to sell at cost. I
In view Pf the threatened disrup
tion of the local market, arising
from the porsonnl difficulties In the
Spreckcls family, some of the local
jobbers will Bend out notices to their
local retail trade tomorrow, offer.
Ing to protect them from any loss
in case of u fall In price during the
next thirty days. This will be done
to prevent retailers from ordering
In driblets, and thus Increasing the
costs ot the Jobbers'.
At (he same tlmd there Is a sus
picion In the market that this
threatened Bhlpmcnt, which would
not nrrlvo hero until. tho last of
July, Is only a bluff on tho part of
Clnus A, Spreckels to worry his
brother, John D. Spreckels', and dis
organize his market. In this con
nection It is pointed out that the
recently reported purchase by Claus
a. oprecKeis or a sue or a sugar
refinery here, has not resulted In
one being built.
The understanding on the street
Is that Claus A. Spreckels has no In
terest In the Western Sugar Refin
ery, which la controjled exclusively
hy Jbhu d. Sprcckels and Adolph
Sprockets. ,s ' ' ",
What, the 'Fignrei Show ,
The statement that Claus A.
Sprockets has not undertaken this
shlpujent arpund je Hppn from, n
commercial motive ' or 'for profit Is
based on tho following figures: The
refinery price of sugar here Is IG.GF.
lB($5.2b, ijrit .tdJUits Mtfrtflgu

tills would Indicate a net profit at
10 cents, It Is understood that the
sugar now In the bandB ot the Job
bers hcjo was bought from the re
fineries, under advance notice of a
raise, at IMS.
It Is aleo claimed that a shipment
coming around the Horn would ar
