Porto Itlcnns Arc Not Citizens, Hays
Attorney-General Dole has
hanlled down an opinion nt the re
quest of the Republican Territorial
Committee in which he holds that
Potto Ricaus are not citizens of the
United States, nnd consequently
have no right to vote in IJawaii.
He holds, however, that they are
citizens of Porto Rico and can vote
in their native country, bub in or
der to secure the right of franchise
in Hawaii they must first be natur
alized, as would any other foreigner.
Mr. Dole's opinion was forwarded
to J. D. Avery, secretary of the
Central Committee, and is as fol
lows: Territory of Hawaii, Office of the
Honolulu, II. I., Feb. 25, 1902.
Mr. J. D. Avery, Assistant Secre
tary Republican Central Committee
of Hawaii, Elite Building,
Hotel Street, Honolulu:
Dear Sir: I beg to acknowledge
your communication of yesterday,
requesting my opinion as to the
status of the Porto Ricaus now in
this Territory, with reference to
Article y of the Treaty of Paris
of December 10, 1898, by which
Porto Rico and other islands were
ceded to the United States, provides
that: "The civil and political
status of the native inhabitants of
the territory hereby ceded to the
United States shall be determined
by Congress." This treaty indi
cates the Federal policy in regard
to the new insular possessions.
There has been a provision in all
former treaties ceding territory to
the United States, that the'uihabi
tants thereof should immediately
or ultimately become citizens of the
United States. The treaty of Paris
is unique in that it leaves the civil
rights and political status of the
inhabitants of Porto Rico and the
Philippine Islands entirely at the
discretion of Congress.
Section 7 of an act of the Fifty
sixth Congress, entitled "An Act
temporarily to provide revendes
and a civil government for Porto
Rico, and for other purposes," ap
proved April 12, 1900, provides:
"That all inhabitants continuing
to reside therein who were Spanish
subjects on the nth day of April,
1899, and then resided in Porto
Rico, and their children born sub
sequent thereto, shall be deemed
and held to be citizens of Porto
Rico, and as such entitled to the
protection of the United States, ex
cept such as shall have elected to
preserve their allegiance to the
crown of Spain on or before the
1 1 th day of April, 1900, in accord
ance with the provisions of the
treaty of peace between the United
States nnd Spain, entered into on
the nth day of April, 1899; and
they, together with such citizens of
the United States as may reside in
Porto Rico, shall constitute a body
politic under the name of the peo
ple of Porto Rico, with govern
mental powers as hereinafter con
fered, and with power to sue and
be sued as such."
Under the foregoing section the
inhabitants of Porto Rico, together
with their children subsequently
born there, are "citizens of Porto
Rico, and as such entitled to the
protection of the United States."
In other words, they arc entitled to
protection as citizens of Porto Rico,
not as citizens of the United States.
Furthermore, the words, "And
they, together with such citizens of
the United States as may reside in
Porto Rico," clearly distinguishes
j and segregates them from citizens
of the United States, dividing the
body politic of Porto Rico into two
' classes, one class being citizens of
I the United States, the other class
t being merely citizens of Porto Rico.
I The act creating a temporary gov
ernment for Porto Rico contains
nothing in the least corresponding
to Section 4 of our Orgair'c Act,
making all citizens of the Republic
of Hawaii citizens of the United
States; or to like provisions which
Congress has always enacted when
organizing territories on the main
land. I As our Organic Act makes United
1 States citizenship an indispensable
qualification for the suffrage in this
Territory, it follows that Porto
Ricans cannot vote here without
being first naturalized. 1
Very respectfully yours,
E. P. DOLE.
The ruling was requested by the
Republican Central Committee, as
the status of the Porto Ricaus is
of considerable importance politi
cally. If they were allowed to
vote it would have introduced n
new clement into the political situ
ation of the Hnwniinn Islands of a
rather uncertain quality. The rul
ing of the Attorney-General will,
however, settle the question, as it
is not likely that any of the Porto
Rican laborers will insist upon the
right to vote.

Burglars Stent n ling of Hurirlcul
Instruments of Dr. Thompson.
C. A. Doyle is again in the dis
trict and we are looking for some
thing to drop. There is sure to be
some work done when he starts in.
There is certainly enough for him
to do if he proposes to correct all
A sneak thief entered the resi
dence of Dr. Thompson a few days
since and took away a valuable lot
of instruments. A Jap at Punaluu
afterwards offered them for sale,
but before he could be apprehended
disappeared from the scene. The
instruments were afterward discov
ered by Mr. Fennel under the ware
house, and it is probable M. F.
will find the culprit if not interfered
with by the police. The police
might perhaps find it if it was not
for fear of making the Territory too
much cost. 1 he property is not
quite as big as a canoe, so the case
would probably be discontinued by
orders from Hilo, even if the thief
Heavy Kona winds and no rain
is the order of the day, causing
much disquiet to every one.
The correspondent of the Herald
of late date made a slight mistake
when he named Dr. L. S. Thomp
son as a witness in the late liquor
cases. The fact is that thedectoriu
his capacity as an attorney defended
the so called liquor dealers and sue
ceeded in clearing twelve out of
thirteen. It would have been too
bad for a nice old gentleman like
the Doctor to get mixed up i:i such
an affair, but we of Kau (with the
possible exception ot the Herald
correspondent) know him to be a
very virtuous, Temperate man. He
carries it a little too far sometimes;
for instance, he will not eat mince
pie for fear there may be spirits in
it, and also refuses bread made
with yeast on account of the fcr
mciit. He proved to the satisfac
tion of the Court what we have
always known that a liquor seller
could not exist here. There were
many witnesses called in the case,
and it was evident to any unpreju
diced mind that they we're all men
that abhor spirituous liquors (ex
cepting the Herald correspondent)
and never drink anything stronger
than tea. Their general appear
ance was convincing, ami we are
sure they never drink because they
Hut hit; a Hun on Chamberlain's
Between the hours of eleven
o'clock a. 111. and closing time at
night on Jan. 25th, 1901, A. F.
Clark, druggist, Glade Springs,
Va., U. S. A., sold twelve bottles
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
He says, "I never handled a med
icine that sold better or gave better
satisfaction to my customers."
This Remedy has been in general
use in Virginia for many years,'
and the people there are well ac
quainted with its excellent quali
ties. Many of them have testified
to the remarkable cures which it
has effected. When you need a
good, reliable medicine for a cough
or cold, or attack of the grip, use
Chatnberlaiu's Cough Remedy and
you are certain to be more than
pleased with the quick cure which
it affords. For sale by Hilo Drug
