Depew, of New York: In the Senate of the United States, Monday, April 2, 1900The Senate having under consideration the bill (H. R. 8245) temporarily to provide revenues for the relief of the island of Puerto Rico, and for other purposes -Mr.

Depew said:Mr. President: I have been listening with great interest to the many and very able speeches which have been delivered upon the Puerto Rican tariff. I have endeavored to find in them a solution of the singular political conditions which seem to have arisen out of the presentation of this measure. I have thought perhaps the fact that the country is divided into storm centers and normally placid conditions is due to the extended discussion of the constitutional question having obscured the real meaning of a measure of revenue and relief.There is no division among the majority in either House as to the power of Congress to legislate on this subject.

The majority all agree that the Constitution does not extend by its own power over these new possessions, and that Congress can legislate for them as it deems wise, subject only to the prohibitions upon Congress in the Constitution.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
