CONGRESSIONAL RECORD

December 5, 1899                 By Mr. Knox: Also, a bill (H. R. 1025) 
House                            prohibiting the legislatures of the Terri- 
v. 33 (1)                        tories of the United States from creating 
p. 57                            new counties by special act, and for other
                                 purposes - to the Committee on the Territories.

December 6, 1899               Mr. CULLOM introduced a bill (S. 222) to provide a govern- 
Senate                          ment for the Territory of Hawaii; which was read twice by its
v. 33 (1)                         title.
p. 89                              Mr. CULLOM. I desire to have the bill referred to the Com-
                              mittee on Foreign Relations, because it was formerly before that
                               committee and reported by it, and two of the commissioners who
                             were appointed to visit the Hawaiian Islands are members of the
                             Committee on Foreign Relations. I make this statement frankly. I 
                             should like to have the bill referred to the same committee that 
                             considered it heretofore.

Mr. PLATT of Connecticut. I wish to have the reference of the 
bill delayed for a while. Let it lie on the table for the present.

Mr. CULLOM. I have no objection, if the Senator from Con-
necticut is anxious that that coarse shall be pursued.

The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The bill, at the request of the 
Senator from Connecticut, and without objection, will lie on the 
table.

December 6, 1899                 Mr. Perkins also introduced a bill (S.600) 
Senate                          to extend the laws regulating immigration 
v. 33(1)                        over the Hawaiian Islands ceded to the United 
p. 94                           States; which was read twice by its title,
                               and referred to the Committee on Immigration.

December 6, 1899                  Mr. Nelson introduced a bill (S. 729) to
Senate                     extend the laws relating to commerce, naviga-
v. 33 (1)                 tion, and merchant seamen over the Hawaiian
p. 96                         Islands ceded to the United States.

December 8, 1899             By Mr. McRAE: A bill (H.R. 2971) to extend the anticontract-
House                       labor laws of the United States to Hawaii-to the Committee on 
v. 33 (1)                  the Territories.
p. 165                    By Mr. HITT: A bill (H. R. 2972) to provide a government for
                         the Territory of Hawaii-to the Committee on the Territories.

TERRITORY OF HAWAII.
December 12, 1899           Mr. PLATT of Connecticut.   On a previous day of the session 
Senate                       I asked that the bill (S. 222) to provide a government for the Ter-
v. 33 (1)                   ritory of Hawaii, which was introduced by the Senator from Illi-
p. 233                     nois [Mr. CULLOM], might lie on the table, and that action was 
                           taken.   I supposed at that time that the bill would more properly 
                            be referred to a committee which might be appointed by the Sen- 
                            ate;  but I have no objection to its reference to the Committee on 
                            Foreign Relations, as it came from that committee last year. 

Mr. CULLOM.   I hope that will be done, Mr. President. 

The PRESIDENT pro tempore.    The bill, having been read twice, will be referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations.
