Now, they wcro not glen the same

perfectly plain Therefore we pro

Mr. Mondelt. Will the gentleman
yield to me for n suggestion?
Mr. Hamilton. Certainly.
Mr. Mondell We hno two non
contiguous Territories. Alaska and
Mr. Hamilton. Yes.
Air. Mondell. In making approprla
lions, say, for toiiograpblcal suriryj

timates and In providing geheral ap
propriations wo always have In mind

ordinarily hao In mind tho peculiar
conditions which may exist In outlj
Ing noncontiguous territory, and tho
committees In oery case, I think, have
mnde special appropriation iiiiiW
theso Items for the noncontiguous Ter
ritories like Alaska and Hawaii. For
Instance, the sundry clill appropria
tion bill carries a special Hem for Inn'
uro)s In Alaska, for topographical
survejs In Alaska and for geological
Rime) s In Alaska whcnoer. In the
opinion of Congress, such special ap
propriations for certnln class of sup
,oys In Hawaii or Alaska nro noces-
snry As a matter of fact, Is not It
much better, as a matter of adminis
tration and governmental business,
not to Include the noncontiguous Ter
ritories of the United States within
the provisions of general appropria
tions, In ilew of tho fuct that tho con
ditions are so different In those Terri
tories from what they nro generally
within our continental territory, nnd
In view- also of tho fact that tho de
mands, needs, and requirements of
Uioso Territories can bo bettor con
sidered by tho committees and provid
ed or In separate Items, so that Ha-
wall will neither get moro nor less
than she Is entitled to for a certain
class of work.
Mr. Hamilton. It seems to me qulto
tho contrary. It seems to mo Just ex
actly ns tho law provides, that all laws
of tho United Status which nro not lo
. cnlly Inapplicable shall have the soma
forco nnd effect within all organized
Territories nnd In every Territory
hereafter organized as elsewhere In
tho United States. Then. If ou do
not want n specific law providing for
tho same forco und effect In n Terri
tory, )ou can expect that Territory
from the operation of that law. Why
should jou single out each Territory
for participation In tho law? We hai

Mr. Mondell, I understand, but tho
conditions In thoso Territories nre so
different from those that exist within
our continental confines that the ap
propriations ought to be specific when
applied to them. It is tho best busi
ness administration and the most eco
nomical Suppose that when tho com
mittees nre looking Into tho question
of how much Is to be spent, for ex
ample, for topographic surveys In tho
United States they should decide wo
should spend $200,000 for that pur

should haVo some sort of an Idea haw

Mr Hamilton I am giving jou the

Mr. Fitzgerald, If tho gentleman
ever rend the decision lie would know
from what it orose.
Mr. Hnmtlton. My Information co
incides exactly with what I have
stated hero, that inasmuch ns tho op
ganlc act provided especially that
there should be a customs district es
tabllshed there and an Internal rev-
cnuo district established there, un.l
sundry civil bill, The first provision j they had 0110 or two other provisions
in that bill provides for $250,000 to bo
expended tinder tho direction of tho
President to ascertain thocost of pro
duction of goods that nre'nianiifactur
cd In this country when tho like of
which Is lmKrtcd from other coun
tries, bo thnt tho President can wisely
nnd justly enforco tho tariff law. Now,
then, tho gentleman would havo un
amendment to that hill providing .
Mr. Mondell. Tho gentleman knows
that is a world-wide appropriation and
could be expended In Germany or nny
Mr Good (continuing). If the post-
J tlon of tho gentleman Is correct, then
It would 00 necessary to nmenu mat
annexed It w-ns provided In tiro Joint
resolution of annexation thnt the laws
of tho United States us to public lands
should not apply to Hawaii.
Mr. Fitzgerald Thero are no pun
lie lands in tho Territory of Hawaii
belonging to tho United -States, be
cnuso under tho net annexing llnwnll
wo expressly donntod or granted the
public, lands to Hawaii mid provided
that 'the revenue, should be nvallablo

In another provision of tho act an
noxlng Haw-all wo provided thnt all
tho wharves and docks In Hawaii
which had been built should belong to
tho Territory nnd tho revenuo should
be applied to local purposes.
Now If this decision grew out of nn
attempt to expend moneys that are ap
propriated for tho purpose of .doing
certain work upon tho public domain
of the United States, and It Is furtliT
determined that, thero being no public
domnln belonging to tho United States
In tho Territory of Hnwall. the appro
priation could not bo made.

A Wrong Diagnosis
IT js not drinking that is abhorrent. It is
overdrinking. What you good prohibi
tionists want to do is to pass ,and en
force a law against drunkenness. If you can
enforce a prohibition law you surely can en
force the other.
Because a banker becomes dishonest shall
we abolish the banking law; or because a judge
renders a partial verdict are all judges .scoun
drels ? If one fellow fills up on bad whiskey
should 99 respectable citizens be compelled to
abstain for their life-time fronr moderate use
of a healthful beverage? Shall we close all the
churches 'because one minister of. the gospel
' ran 'away-with the.. young.; .wife .of one of his
l4evef?"Mr' ww-W- ijU'r P!jf
i i - j 1 r
They're all in the same category.
Now' think, reasonable men, think.
Existing laws of tho United
States relating to public lands
slinll not apply to such lands In
tho Hawaiian Islands; but tho
Congress of tl)o United States
shall enact special laws for their
management and disposal; Pro
vided, that nil revenue from or
proceeds of the snmo, except as
regards such part as may bo used
or occupied for civil, military, or
naval purposes of the United
States, or may be assigned to jlio
use of the local government, shall
bo used solely for the benefit of
the, Inhabitants' of th,e Hawaiian
Islands for educational and 'for
other public purposes.
