1872           Mr. PETTUS.   Is not the phrase "on and after the date" mis- leading?

           The PRESIDENT pro tempore.   It is wrong.   If the Senator
           from Illinois will look at it he will see that it is wrong.

           Mr. CULLOM. I took it out of the House print. Let it read "from and after its passage."

           The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Secretary will read the amendment as 
           modified.

The SECRETARY. It is proposed to strike oat sections 104 and 103, in the following 
words:

SEC. 104. That the legislature of the Republic of Hawaii may enact 
laws not inconsistent with the foregoing provisions prior to the taking 
effect thereof.

SEC. 105. That this act shall take effect on the 4th day of July, 1900, 
except section 104 hereof, which shall take effect immediately after the 
approval of this net.

And in lieu thereof to insert:
SEC. 104. That this act shall take effect sixty days from and after the 
date of the approval thereof.
The amendment was agreed to.

Mr. CULLOM. I believe it was understood that on the completion of the 
reading of the bill there would be an adjournment.

The PRESIDENT pro tempore. The Senator gave notice that he wished to 
insert the word "exclusive" in two or three places.
Mr. CULLOM. There are quite a number of those places, and as I think 
Senators are a little anxious that the Senate shall now adjourn, I will defer that 
for a future day. I move that the Senate adjourn.
The motion was agreed to: and (at 3 o'clock and 20 minutes p. m.) the 
Senate adjourned until Monday, February 19,1900, at 12 o'clock meridian.

February 17, 1900             Under clause 2 of Rule XXIV, Senate bills 
House                         of the following titles were taken from the 
v. 33 (2)                     Speaker's table and referred to their appro- 
p. 1893                       priate committees as indicated below:
S. 2708.                       An Act to amend an act making 
                               appropriations for the construction, repair, and 
                               preservation of certain public works on rivers and 
                               harbors, and for other purposes, approved March 3, 
                               1899 - to the Committee on Military Affairs.

TERRITORY OF HAWAII.
February 19, 1900             Mr. CULLOM.   It is so nearly 2 o'clock that in the absence of 
                               Senate anything else apparently that is ready for consideration, I will call 
v.  33 (2)                    up Senate bill No. 222, to provide a government for the Territory 
p.  1918-1934                 of Hawaii.
                              The Senate, as in Committee of the Whole, resumed the con- 
                              sideration of the bill (S. 222) to provide a government for the Ter- 
                              ritory of Hawaii.

Mr. CULLOM. I ask leave to make a few formal amendments to the bill which 
I did not have made on last Friday. I ask that they be made now. These are 
simply to connect the statutes which are repealed.
On page 3, line 31, after the words "sections thirty to thirty-three," I move to insert "inclusive." .
On page 4, line 1, after the words "sections one hundred and fifty to one hundred and fifty-six," I move to insert " inclusive."
On page 5, line 4, after the words "eleven hundred and seventy-eight," I move to insert "inclusive."
On the same page, line 8, after the words "thirteen hundred and fifty-four," I move to insert " inclusive."
On the same page, line 9, after the words " fifteen hundred and fourteen," I move to insert "inclusive."
On the same page, line 15, after the words "seventeen hundred and fifty-eight," I move to insert "inclusive."
On the same page, line 17, after the words " eighteen hundred and thirty-two," I move to insert " inclusive."
On the same page, line 19, after the words " sixty-seven," I move to insert "inclusive."
On the same page, line 21, after the words " three hundred and seventy-one," I move to strike out "to" and insert " and."
On the same page, line 23, after the words "four hundred and thirteen," I move to insert " inclusive."
