    Excerpt from Notes on the Law of Territorial Expansion: With Especial Reference to the Philippines Submitted to the Committee on the Judiciary of the Senate of the United States, March 16, 1900 Before the Treaty of Paris became effective, the disposition of the Philippines was an open question. Then the islands were foreign territory. The United States controlled their disposition, but stood in the broad ways of war and diplomacy uncommitted and uncompelled to a particular course. Now the islands are part of the United States, and our relation to them is defined by the law of the Constitution, complemented by treaty provisions and principles of public law conformable to its supreme authority. This statement is challenged, and the foremost challenger is the Administration, which would hold the islands in firm possession, yet aloof from the United States and beyond the ægis of the Constitution. The Status of The Philippines. The Transfer of The Spanish Title. According to the principles recognized by civilized nations as determining national title to land, Spain possessed the Philippines in exclusive sovereignty. That she had not reclaimed all parts of the archipelago nor bent all its savage tribes to her will, no more affected her title than did like shortcomings affect our right to the Far West in the early days. Nor was her title divested by insurrection, for the principles of public law affirm the right of a state to territory as against insurgents who do not maintain a recognized government. Besides, the insurrection must be viewed in connection with our campaign. Our hostile preparations revived it, our fleet brought back its leader, our aid made it so formidable that, when Manila fell, Spain was mistress only of the few towns in which her troops were huddled. Finally, the United States have put all question of Spain's title beyond discussion. They have determined its sufficiency by accepting the islands from her hands.
