Senate                  Relations, to whom was referred the bill (S. 222) to provide a
v. 33 (1)              government for the Territory of Hawaii, to report it with amend-
p. 643                   ments.
                           I desire to give notice that at the very first opportunity I can
                          get I wish to call up the bill for consideration.

The PRESIDENT pro tempore.   The bill will be placed on the Calendar.

January 4, 1900                    By Mr. Babcock:  A bill (H. R. 5297) to 
House                           amend the act entitled "An act to better 
v. 33 (1)                       define and regulate the rights of aliens to 
p. 659                          hold and own real estate in the Territories,"
                               approved March 2, 1897 - to the Committee on
                          the District of Columbia.

January 9, 1900                     Mr. Fairbanks introduced a bill (S. 2244) 
Senate                          to extend the immigration, contract-labor, 
v. 33 (1)                       and Chinese exclusion laws of the United 
p. 701                          States to the Hawaiian Islands; which was
                         read twice by its title, and referred to the  
                         Committee on Pacific Islands and Puerto Rico.

LAND SYSTEM OF HAWAIIAN ISLANDS.
January 10, 1900           Mr. MORGAN. I wish to ask for the printing of a document 
Senate                 prepared by the land agent of Hawaii, J. P. Brown, under the
v. 33 (1)                supervision of the officials of the government of Hawaii, which
p. 735             explains fully but still briefly the complicated land system of those
                        islands. I ask that it be printed and lie over, inasmuch as the bill 
        to which it relates is probably to be taken up very soon, and the
               committee, I think, have had great difficulty in understanding this
                        question. 

The PRESIDENT pro tempore.   Is there objection to the request
 of the Senator from Alabama?   The Chair hears none, and it is so ordered.

January  10, 1900        Mr. JENKINS, from the Committee on the District of Colum-
House                    bia, to which was referred the bill of the House (H. R. 5297) to
v. 33 (1)                 amend the act entitled "An act to better define and regulate the
p. 753                  rights of aliens to hold and own real estate in the Territories,"
                      approved March 2, 1897, reported  the same with  amendment,
                     accompanied by a report (No. 30); which said bill and report were
                     referred to the House Calendar.

January 12, 1900      By Mr. Perea: also a bill (H. R. 6053) to 
House                  amend an act entitled "An act to establish 
v. 33 (1)              circuit courts of appeals, and define and 
p. 790                 regulate, in certain cases, the Jurisdiction
                       of the courts of the United States, and for other 
                       purposes," approved March 3, 1891 - to the Committee on 
                       the Judiciary.

January 15, 1900                Mr. Elkins also introduced a bill (S. 2439) 
Senate                      to extend the laws relating to commerce, 
v. 33 (1)                    navigation, and merchant seamen over the 
p. 801                      Hawaiian Islands ceded to the United States;
                            which was read twice by its title, and referred to the 
                            Committee on Commerce.
