as of leciie Importance, and he Mimmoil
up that decision ns bearint; on the present
conditions as ft How.-.
"That the j.ow.r to ta, lew duties, etc.,
extends to the entire Flitted States.
"That the term Tnlted State- embrace
"our great lit public, which Is compoeil of
States and Territories.'
"That "it is not le-s necessary, on tho
principles of mu Constitution, that uni
formity in the Imposition of Impost?, duties;
and c-ecl-es should be edisened in tlio ono
than the other.'
"It follows from the above that tho rishts
nnd obllKations of tho Territory thus a
part of the United Slates. nml the Inhabi
tants thereof, are measured and tested by
Comments on Absence if Consuls.
As to the contention that the l'liilipptnes
are not a part of the United States, Mr.
"if the islands ceded by Spain are for
eisu territory, then our country would ttavo
as its commercial reprcsenta"tive3 therein
Consuls, who would perform the requisite
otUdal nets prescribed by our customs
laws rcaardinR shipments of merchandise
from any of these islands, to an part of
the United States. The court takei ju
dicial notice of the fact that our Govern
ment has no Con-uls in the Philippines and
that when Spanl-h sovereignty ceased in
tho-o Islands the I'nlttd States Consuls
therein were withdrawn, and that the con
sular agents of foreign Powers thenceforth
were the accredited representatives of tho
resjieetive foreign governments to tho
1'nitnl States and our Goiernment signed
the exequatur of uch Consuls.
"What an anomaly It is to have Spain send
Its Consuls to the Philippines if. as con
tended for the purposes ot revenue. Ihtv
are still foreign territory. If they are not
American territory they must still be Span
ish, for It ! not pretended that any other
nation foriign to the United States has
acquired any sovereignty over them, nor Is
it pretended that the Philippine Islands In
tho eye of International law occupy the
status' of an independent nation."
Mr. sMdrlch'M l'lnqurnt Conclnslon.
After citing Ixird Mansfield's opinion nn
th? limitation of the iowcr of the King an I
Parliament. Mr. Aldrich said.
"It is, a startling proposition that a power
denied to Parliament as, inconsistent with
liberty and consonant only with tyranny
belongs to the Congress ef the 'United
States In one case and to the President
thereof In another: that a power, the as
sertion ot which justified rebellion and a
prolonged and bitter war to resist, was
earefullv preserved In tlie very government
established as the result of such resistance;
that our forefathers denied an omnipotent
Parliament to decree an omnipotent Con
gress; that what was tyranny as to them
in ITCj-Ii.G Is less than tiranny now; timo
must be capable of changing principles If
this proposition be true."

when the right to vote is abridged, except
