By authority of the United States, be it enacted by the Philippine Commission, that:

SECTION 1. Section five of Act Numbered Three hundred and fifty-five is hereby amended to read as follows:
"SEC. 5. The Civil Governor of the Philippine Islands is hereby authorized and directed to cause the Captain of the Port of Manila to turn over to the Insular Collector of Customs at the close of the twenty-eighth day of February, nineteen hundred and three, all public records and property held by him as said Captain of the Port, upon proper receipts therefor, and thereupon the said office of Captain of the port of Manila shall be abolished and the duties thereof shall devolve upon the Insular Collector of Customs and his subordinate officers as he may direct. By executive order there may be transferred by the Civil Governor from the existing office of the Captain of the Port to the office of the Insular Collector of Customs, for the discharge of the additional duties by this amendment imposed upon the office of Insular Collector, such officers and subordinate officers and employees of the existing office of the Captain of the Port as the Insular Collector shall recommend and the Civil Governor may deem necessary. All other offices and positions in the office of the Captain of the Port shall be thereafter abolished. The funds heretofore appropriated for the support of the office of the Captain of the Port shall be available to the extent to which they may be needed for the payment of the officers and employees transferred under this section to the office of the Insular Collector, and for the necessary expenses of discharging the functions herein transferred from the Captain of the Port to the Insular Collector."
SEC. 2. The public good requiring the speedy enactment of this bill, the passage of the same is hereby expedited in accordance with section two of "An Act prescribing the order of procedure by the Commission in the enactment of laws," passed September twenty-sixth, nineteen hundred.

SEC. 3. This act shall take effect on February twenty-eighth, nineteen hundred and three.
