to call attention to tho language of
tho first section of this promised act,
section o. There was somo discus
sion by the .gentlaman rrom Michigan
regarding tho'npccssltf and tho j.'ffect
of thus amending section S of'tho or
ganic act of the Territory so as to ex
tend nil general appropriations made
by Congress to tho Territory of Ha
waii, fwltho'ut specific j"hictitlorf and
without nrfy referoiro whateveijto the
necessities' -of 'the jTorWtory! intrust
tho Comiolttco of the "Whole will un
derstand what thlif' means Ifcforo they
voto In favor of tho proposition. It Is
certain that all general appropriations
made by Congress for the public ser
vice will he avnllablei for expenditure
In the Territory according to tho
Judgment nnd discretion of the depart
ment for which tho appropriation Is
made. An appropriation mado by tho
Agricultural Department, for tho agri
cultural service, would bo available
for expenditure In tho Territory of
Hawaii, unless Congress by on express
limitation iton tho appropriation ex
cluded that Territory.
All ihe appropriation mado for the
Geological Survey would bo available
unless Congress expressly excepted
Ihe expenditure of any part of that
appropriation for tho Territory of Ha
wall. We appropriate-$800,000 fortbo
Geological' Sttrvey. 'Now,.U,.thi lan
guage will have tho effect tho gentle
man' claims it will have, every, dollar
of that $300,000 could bo expended .'oh
the Territory of 'Hawaii without any
further action on the part of Congress
nnd without Congress knowing It.
Mr. Lloyd. Is It not true that, every
dollar could bo expended In. thoStato
of Minnesota?' .

Mr, Tawney. No.
Mr. Lloyd. Could It not be?
Mr. Tnwney. It could .bo used.
Mr IJoyd. Well, why should It not
b'e ijscd, iifi Hawaii the same as In Min
nesota? Mr, Tawncy. If tho Geological Sur
vey was surveying public lands In tho
State of Minnesota, It could be ex
pended for the survey of lands belong
ing to tho United States, but It could
not lie expended In Mlnnrsotn to sur
yy Mifnds (tint iljd hijt belong to tho
Ufiltod States. The -reason for this
provision, ns I suspected this morning,
grows out of Ihe fact that Congress
two or thren years aco refused to niv
propYlato $12,500 for stream gauging
In the' Territory of Hawaii.
Mr. Duller. What Is stream gaug
ing? At that time wo wcro appropri
ating $200,000 for stream gauging In
tho .United States. That was tho lan
guage of tho appropriation. When
the estimate was submitted to Con
gress for tho next year, there was nn
estimate for stream gauging for $200,
000. nnd S12.S0O of that amount wn
to be expended In tho Territory of
Mr. Hamilton. Wilt the gentleman
permit an Interruption?
J Mr. Tnwney. .With) that amount
(hey proposed' to extend"' tho' strcanf
gauging scrvlco to the Territory ot
Hawaii, and then expend I12.G0O out
of tho $200,000 theretofore expended
for that scrvlco in, tho United States.
Mr; Hamilton. Well, how Is It ns

Territories? ' !.
Mr. Tawncy. The Btrcnm gauging
In the other Territories Is carried on
under tho Kcclamatlon Service. '
Mr. Hamilton. Very woll.
Mr. Tawney. At that tlmo there
was no stream gauging paid for out
of any appropriation west of tho Mis
sissippi river, nnd the stream gauging
that was being done by the Geological
8urvcy or tho Hyd'ropraphlc Division,

the Intetlor cited In tho opinion of tho
This question arose over an attempt
on tho part of tho Interior Depart
jnqnt to expend pArt of the $200,000
lor stream gauging In Hawaii, nnd tho
comptroller- held that It could not bo
expended for that service In that Ter
ritory, because, in submitting his es'
tlmato .for appropriation, tho Secre
tary or the- IntcHnr submitted this es-
Ir gniislng stream nnd do
teririlnlng the water supply of tho
United States, and for tho Inves
tigation of underground currents
and artesian wellsjind for tho pre
paration of reports uon tho best
method of utilizing tho water re
sources of tho Hawaiian Islands,
nnd the preparation of a report
upon tho best method of utilizing
tho same, to be immediately avall

and tho appropriation of 123,00 for
that purposo. In that Territory was
stricken out by the Committee on Ap
propriations In recommending tho ap
propriation, and tho appropriation was
Tho' entire appropriation was not In
order under the rules of tho Houso
becauso not authorized by law. The
cntlro appropriation has been omit
ted heretofore and has been kept out
of tho bill In, the Houso of Kcprcsent
atlvos because there Is no law author
izing Iho gauging of streams any
where In the United States.
Tho Comptroller says your estimate
for tho provious year was In tho fol
For gauging streams and de
termining tho water supply of tho
United States and for the Investi
gation ot underground current and
artesian wells nnd tho preparation
of report on tho best method of
utilizing tho resources, $200,000.
I also quote from the hearings on
these estimates, pago 3, determining
wntpr supply. Then tho Comptroller
Inserts In his opinion, for tho purpose
of showing tho,. Intent of, .jCojigrpss,
thotostlmonv taken before thn Coiti-
mlttco on Appropriations. Ono ot tho
roasons I may say that thnt appropri
ation of $12,500 for extending tho
stream gauging service to Hawaii was
not .granted or recommended to the
Houso by the Commlttco .on Appro
priations, was because It' appeared
from theso hearings thnt this Investi
gative work was to bo dono primarily
for tho benefit of tho big planters of
tho Territory of Hawaii. In other
words, It was again tho case of ex
pending public money for tho benefit
of prlvato interests', nnd that Is why
tho Committee on Appropriations de
clined to recommend tho appropriation
to, tho Houso ot Representatives.
Now you proposo In this bill, by a
blanket clause, to mako available for
expenditure In .Hawaii within the dis
cretion of the department all of the
geological, appropriation and all other
general apiroprlatlons made by Con
grcss that can be, or that thero Is any.
reason or necessity, for expending in
that Territory, Wo thcroby take our
hands off. Congress nn longer has
control of the expenditure of the ap
propriations In tho Territory of Ha
waii If this provision becomes a law.
Mr. Hamilton. Will tho gentleman
Mr. Tnwney. Yes.
Mr. Hamilton. Tho gentleman says
that to pqrmlt the gauging In Hawaii
to bo dono at government expense or
at government expense In part would
be In tho interest of tho sugar plant
ers and great corporations In Hawaii.
I, would like to ask blm If, ho docs not
permit this samo stream gauging In
New Mexico and In Arizona In the In
terest, of certain largo corporations.
who get tho benefit of It?
Mr, Tawnoy. Stream gauging, I
will say. In ttie territory west of the
Mississippi Is dono on the arid lnnds
belonging t,o tho United States for tho
purposo of ascertaining whether thero
Is BUtnclcut water to Irrlgato certain
tracts of arid land.
Prior to 1006, I will adtnlt, wo ap
propriated money for gauging streams
as the' Director of tho Geological Sur.
vcy said, for the gcnoflt, primarily, of
prospective Investors In water pow
ers, but since that tlmo wc have en
deavored to Btop It, and as far as -wo
could with the opposition ot the
Houso, havo stopped It.
Mr.. Hamilton. Let us get at this
fairly. Can not the commlttco, If It
wishes to exclude Hawaii participat
ing In all appropriation, say so In ho
Mr. Tawnoy. Yos; and In so many
words we cun Includo It.
Mr. Hamilton; No.
" Mr, Tawney. This Is an exact Illus
tration or It. When' 'tho estimate was
submlttod, It Included In thq estimate
$12,500 to1 be expended In Hawaii.
'Mr. Hamilton.' Tho gentleman'H
whole argument comes to this, that
for ceaftaln reasons he thinks Hawaii
should not 'be permitted tq participate
In this matter of stream gauging.
They say that they themselves are
paying tbo government employes who
arc sent thero from the Geological
Survey to do tills work; that they are
-paying them out of their own pockets,
and they, thought, they might be .per
mitted to participate; but It tho gn
tleman from Minnesota (Mr. Taw
ney), as chairman of the Commltteo
on Appropriations, thluks that Ha'
wall should not be permitted to par.
ttclpate as the other Territories ' are
permitted to participate, why may he
not. exciudo Hawaii in proper tan
guage? If he wants to discriminate
why not come out and do so?
Mr. Tawney. Well, Mr. Chairman,
when we come to consider the estl
M4mtL Afiitflnii' M
mates for general appropriations
and thnt Is what this language applies
to wc do not have tho opportunity
of Interrogating thoso who havo sub
mitted tho estimates with refcrenco
to the territory or tho sections of tho
country In which tho appropriations
should not be expended,
They come to us and toll us wha
thoy wanffor .the service generally,
nnd they tell ils'whero they want to
expend tho money, nnd It Is then that
wo havo an nppdrtunlty-!n tho first In
stance, nnd tho Houso later, to ascer
tain and determine wlifther or not tho
appropriation should bo mado. Thnt
Is exactly what happened In this ense
nhlch has given rise to this blanket
provision hero proposed In the organic
act ot the Territory ot Hawaii, pro
posing to mako available fur expendi
ture In that Territory all general ap
propriations, without nny Investiga
tion whatever on the part of Congress
as to tho necessity for making tho ap
propriations. Now, when beforo tho
committee Secretary Garfield was ask
ed by Mr. Shirley this question:
Docs tho governor Indicate
where the demand comes from?
He was speaking of tho demand
now for tho $12,500.
Mr. Garfield. From the plant
ers and thoso using agricultural
lands, and for tho puriosc of de
termining tho character of tho
water supply nnd the quality.
Mr. Shlrloy. The reason I nsk
Is that most of the planters nro
operating on such elaborate scales
nnd they maintain such costly
works of Irrigation ns would In
dlcato their owmablllty to do nny
Investigating along this lino that
unlght bo necessary for their own
As a result of this .investigation,
which wns somewhat oxtcnslvo, tho
committee concluded that It could not
Justify recommending to tho Houso
tho expenditure of $12,500 for stream
gauging In the Territory of Hawaii,
and some of tho members of that com
mlttco havo personal knowledge of
ttio physical conditions which obtain
in that Territory, and thoy know how
very limited aro tho streams to bo
gauged. But, of courso. If wo wcro
to gd down there, wo coutd expend a
vast amount of money In digging nr
tcslnn wells for tho benefit of tho
Mr. Hamilton. Why, tho gentleman.
docs not undcrtnko to say ttrnt tho
sugar plantations nro as a rulo run
on artesian wells, docs ho?
Mr. Tawney. Well, they aro all
run, as elsewhere, on Irrigation, cith
er by nrteBlan wells or by canals,
Mr. Hamilton. Docs the gentleman
want to tell the Houso that the Gov
ernment would ho called upon to go
Into the business of digging wells?
Mr. Tnwney. The Government
would be called upon to do anything
that tho Geological Survey might con
sider necessary for Its Interest In tho
expenditure of this appropriation.
Mr. Hamilton. But tho gentleman
controls his appropriations, does he
Mr. Tawncy. He does not control
tho expenditure of them, and nclthor
docs tho Houso of Representatives.
