Mr. Jones of Washington (when the Committee on

I am directed by the Committee on Merchant Marine and 
Fisheries to report the bill (H. R. 5065) to extend 
the laws relating to commerce, navigation, etc., over 
the Hawaiian Islands ceded to the United States. I 
call up that bill for immediate consideration. The 
bill was read at length. Mr. McRae. Mr. Speaker, I 
would ask if this bill is on the House Calendar? Mr. 
Richardson. I want to reserve the point of order, Mr. 
Speaker, that it is not properly on the House 
Calendar, if it is there. The Speaker. The Chair 
understands that the bill called up by the gentleman 
is on the Union Calendar. That can not be taken up in 
the morning hour. The Clerk will proceed with the 
call.

the present consideration of the bill which I send 
to the desk. The bill (H. R. 5065) to extend the
