Representative Marsh Proposen to Ex
tend It to the Public Schools.
The bill of Representative Marsh of Illi
nois, designed to extend military instruc
tion to the public schools of the country, 1
was favorably acted upon by the House
committee on military affairs yesterday.
The Preamble recites:
"Whereas, the national defense must de
pend upon the volunteer service of the peo
ple of the several states; and
"Whereas. those cities and towns which
shall adopt a system of military instruc
tion in their public schools are entitled to
the assistance of the government in order
to secure to the United States such a
knowledge of military affaits among the
youth of the country as will render them
efficient as volunteers if called upon for
the national defense; therefore, etc."
The bill provides that, in addition to the
officers now assignable to schools, the P's
ident may assign retired officers and non
commissioned officers, sergeants, corporals, t
etc., "in the public schools of the various
cities in the United States where such in
struction shall have been authorized by
the educational authorities thereof, and
where the services of such instructors shall
hav'e been applied for by said authorities. t
It is further provided that the city .or I
town authorities shall pay the cost of cord-t
mutation of Quarters and the extra duty
pay of the officer so assigned, and that the I
Becretary of War shall issue ordnan ce
stores to the public schools of any city orr
the normal schools of any state whichl I
shall adopt military instrttction as a part
of its public school Stystem-.
PLANS FOR PEARL HARBOR.
Comapletlon of It. Work bF- Adsmiral
lar'ker.'a Naval Board.
The naval board, of which Admiral Bar
ker is chairman, ap~pointed to prepare plans I
for the establishment of a naval and coal-r
Ing station at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, has
completed its labors. The board was do- 1
terred by the absence of data respecting t
the character of the coral formations in the
barbor .from submitting close estimates of
the cost of makIng the harbor accessible forI
naval ships. This data can be had only by
a series of borings, which will be made I
while the work of improving the channel I
Itcross the entrance bar is In progress. The
l100,000 recently appropriated will be util
laed for this purpose as soon as5 the money I
ian ha transferred to the Navy Department. I
With one exception it has been Impossible
to secure options from owners for the sale t
to the government of lands necessary for lI
the proposed station. This particular tract
waa offered on advantageous terms, and C
may serve to fIx the prIce to be paid for
the remainder of the land the government t
will acquire by condemnation proceedings,.
Which are possible under a law enacted1 by I
the HawaiIan lekislatwre just before annex-t
ation. From a close study of the surveys
the board concludes that the existing chan
nel will not suffice for naval needs even I
with the opening to a width of 250 feet of
the channel across the bar at the entrance.
Thei'efore it recommends that several heavy
lute be made ofi' projecting points in the
inside channel in order to straighten It. No '
netmte is given df the total cost of the a
establishment of the station, but it is pro- d
posed that an appropriation of half a mail- t
It4n dollas be made now to begin the work,

He was not here to vote on the bill when
it passed the House. but he has bden west
and knows the sentiment of the people. It
will bo remembered that the lower branch
Df the Iowa legislature recently expressed
views In line with Mr. Lane's position. Mr.
Lane's speech was made during the debate
on the Hawaiian bill.
"If by this tariff bill, Mr. Chairman,"
said Mr. Lane, "it was intended to fasten
upon this country a permanent policy, then
I say it is only consistent that a lapse of
more than four weeks since its passage

The Sentiments of the People.
"This question appeals to the sentiments

3f our form of government.
"Mr. Chairman, concede, if we may, that
it is not the intention by this bill to estab
lish a permanent doctrine of tariff inequali
ty. Concede, if we may. that this legisla
tion is purely temporary. Is it expedient?
[s it wise? Leave out of the discussion all
juery as to its legality, as ti the constitu
tionality of it. Is it wise? Is it expedient?
"Two reasons. Mr. Chairman, have ben
riven which it is claimed establish both the
necessity for and the wisdom of the hill.
What are these claims, and what do they
establish? As I understand it. the first
iecessity suggasted for the bill is the claim
that to establish a civil government on an
,quality without a .tariff of some amount
will embarrass the future in relation to the
Philippines. In other words, to maintain
tnd preserve the claim that the Constitu
ion does not extend to the Philippines, we
"nust put a tariff of some amount on Porto
Rico; that by enacting a tariff on Porto
Rico of 15 per cent, or any other amount,
we thereby stop the Constitution from ex
:ending to the Philippines, or rather place
the republican party on record as saying
that the Constitution do's not extend to
newly acquirea possessions, such as the
Philippines, except by -express enactment.
"Why. I would be glad to have the Con
stitution stop from extending to the Philip
ulnes, but it does seem to me that the
massage of ,a plain and simple resolution
'rom Congress directed to the Philippines
would most cleariy establish the position
of the republican party on this question.
rhe people would know exactly what was
;aid and possibly what was intended.
"Let us not grind the poor Porto Ricans
with a tariff tax for two years to the tune
>f $4,40),410 for the purpose of studying
he Constitution with relation to the Philip
)ines. I do not know how that method
mpressos you, but I would say tat it was
t course of study entirely too long and ex
)ensive, and the Lord only knows whether
he poor Porto Ricans would be able to
stand the treatment or not, I am afraid
"But it is suggested that the tariff bill
will furnish a means to raise the constitu
ional questions and hate the Supreme
'ourt decide them within two years. Well,
hat may be true. but why go to all this
rouble? When did the Constitution extend
.0 Porto Rico, if at allL I do not believe
t ever did; but if it did extend it did not
vait till the 1st day of February. 1it. It
vent. if it went -at all, when our military
orces took possession under the Paris
reaty: and If it extended at all it has been
here ever since.
"During all that time and now the United
itates has been collecting the Dingley tar'ff,
law under the Constitution, and it seems
o me. although I do not profess to be a
onstitutional lawyer, no difficulty could
trise to start litigation In relation to the
0ayment or the refusal to pay the DIngley
ar. That would bring all the light on the
7onstitution that the proposed bill can pos
ibly bring. And.I notice by reading the Rec
ord of last Sa'turday that the senior senator
'rum Indiana In his remarks stated it to
oe a fact that there iras now pending in
he courts of New York city litigation
tgainst the customs collector for over $1.
W0.0004 upon the ground that the Constitu
ion extended to Porto Rico and that the
luties could not be lawfully collected."
Mr. Grosvenor's Suggestion.
Mr. Grosvenor-"If it will not interrupt
he gentleman, will he allow me to make
suggestion there? There are several
uits of the character suggested by the
:entlenan pending, but they do not and
annot raise in those cases the same que-s
ion that will he raised by an actual en
.ctment of Congress affecting that terri
ory. This only raises the question
rhether' or not the acquisition of Porto
tico put an end not to the power of (ion
'ress to legislate over It. bu-t to a law al
eady existing, which only did have ap
'lcation to the ports of the U'nited States
nd .to goods coming from foreign terr
ory. Therefore, the real question that
riust affect all the island possessioris mas
ae a different one and raised in a different
uit from the one that the gentleijan is
peaking about. That is my suggestion."
Mr. Lane-"I am very thankful for the
uggestion. I have heard of It befo~re, bu~t
seems to me that there Is no quesliona
ut what the prop,;sition we want to have
aised can be raised without going throughi
he farce of laying down a tariff upon aI
Istrict that belongs In and is a part of the
Intted States. I say. Why detrart from
he plain path of fiuty here so clearly
tated by President McKinley in his mea
age to Congress? Why depart from the
lain path of duty so acceptable to the
eople of this country and the people of
orto Rico? Why, let us look at the
tecord. On January 19, 11900, only a few
tonths agp, the Congressional Record
hows that the gentleman from New York,
lie chairman of the ways and means comn
tittee (Mr. Payne). on this side of the
louse, himself introduced a 'plain duty'

"That bill simply and clearly extended
lie customs laws and the Internal revenue
twa of the United States to Porto Rico-a
lit drawn upon the plan of the 'plain
uty'-a bill to establish equity, and that
ras all. If that hill had been reported to
his body, in my judgment, it would have
eceived at that time the support of every
tember on this side of the House, if not on
he other. Why? Because at that time it
ra in accord with the individual judg
tent of the members of thIs side of the
[ouse, because they believed it was right.

real, true and genuine reason for this pro

which was the policy of the administration
and of the party up to that time. then It
does not become a question of differencee

"All parties concede the present serious
condition of the p-ople in Porto Rico. The
republican party is clways alert to appre
ciate such condition of the people. The re

crats. responded to that cor.4ition, an'd will

by % special message of the Pr-.ident. sup

of this country. We then made no ques

"And so. when necessity demands it. we
will do it again. But some ote says you

that the necessary votes to pa the Hotuse
bill were obtained by an appeal made un
der the financial-aid clause in the bill: that
a large number were induced. raninst their
own judgment and belief. on the principle
of free trade and tariff, to yield their own
judgment because of the financial distress
of the people of Porto Rico and the pro
vision of the hill that helped them.
"It is well known on this side of the
chamber, and I believe it to be equally an
established fact, that had the hill to trans
fer the revenues collected tinder the Ding
ley law of over [.wu.uM been known or
presented first it would have resulted in the
defeat of the tariff bill and the estabtish
ment of the equality basis in the commer
cial transactions between Porto Rico and
the United States. I have no doubt about
Doen Not Represcsnt Majority of Hemme.
"If this be true, and I believe It is. then
I am warranted in making the statement
that the House bill. with all the knowledge
and the facts now known. including thos.
unknown. when vited upon does ntot repre
s'nt tit- judgtnnt and cunsensus if opinli in
of the mnajority f this body. I hav, heard
many members give -xpressions which !n
duced me to believe that if th,-y had first
voted to give the tn uttey cIll-eted under
the Dingley tariff over. two and a half
milliou dollars. they would not hav- sup
ported th" tariff bill: but having gtine on
record. although they concede the reason
for doing so ha' be-in fully satisfied, they
feel a delicacy about v. o ng against the
tariff if an opiortunity offers, and it now
looks very certain that it will offer within
a few days, and I hope it will.
"I am unable to understand this kind of
philosophy. If the cause that moved me
was sat'stied. removed. I would at least
prefer to make the correction myself, if
opportunitr offered. than run the chance
of having my constituents correct it for me
at a time that might not be convenient.
"The House bill that was passed was
predicated upon three necessities. according
to the preamble if the hill. First. it Is
predicated upon the alleged necessity .f
rai!.ing revenue for schools: then. secondly.
for roads and internal improvements, ani,
finally. upon the alieged necessity of the
administration of their government as to
funds. Th-se are the three necessities
stated in the bill.
"I say ahanden now this tariff, since we
voted the money ti carry -on their admInis
t.ratlon-two millions and a half. We all
know fron the statemnitt of the ways and
means committee made here that that
money wil carry ion their administratin
for imore than eighteen months. from their
own figur s. Then. I say. abandon this pro
text for levying a tariff tax under the al
leged necessity of building .ch-ols ani
roads for Porto Rico. What they demand
now is net sch .l houses and roiads. but
jutice and equity. Recognize their rights
by the e'nactment of proper legaation. ai
they will get their school houses and roads
as fast as they can use them.
"The 3'2.imw.ust already given them will
furnish ample revenue for the present ad
ministration of their gavernment. The es
tablishment of their just rights will build
more -chool houses and roads than the
paltry revenue proposed by this tax. Es
tablsh the principle 1-f equalIty and Porto
Rico will work out her own salvation.
The Spanish Tariff.
"In connection with the discussion of this
question. reference has been made to the
extreme tariff that burdened Porto Rico
when controlled by Spanish rule. The tariff
on flour was $4 for 2. pounds. ani. in ad
dition. a consumption tax of $2.30; making
$6.30o on 200 pounds of flour. Other items
were taxed in proportion.
"I'nder Spanish regime wheat from the
United States was placed at such a tariff.
$.1:. that it was forced to go to Spa'n to be
ground into flour and then shipped back. I
heard this suggestion made. and it con
veyed to my mind that Porto Rico was so
used to the Stuanish im.osition that it
would not do to give her ire trade all at
once. It wou'd be such a shock that it
would be dangerous. Even the action of
the President. Mr. Chairman. in suspend!ng
the tariff during the past months upon the
important necess:ties of life in Po.to R.co
"The Pretident, in the exerctse of his wis
dom, appreciating the impoverished condi
tion of Porto Rico. suspended the customs
tariff on flour. breadstutts, codfish and the
staples of life to the masses of the people.
But when they cme to pass th.s bill. in
the anxiety. it seems to save the Constitu
tion. in the anxiety to give schools and
roads to Porto Ico. the Ilonse bill turns
down this acton of the President of the
united States and allows the people to
starve. Instead of recognizing their rights,
instead of giving them their equality. we
propose to tax thelr nakentness in older to
raise revenue to teach their intelligence.
"They say, or seem to say, that history
shows these Porto Rico poiple were taxed
and taxed and taxed aga n. and under it all
they were able to tax themselves besides to
the amuunt of $tttttt. for the purpotie
if freeing the:r slaves; ti'erefore. America
should tax them, too.
