Military government continues till legally supplanted
New Mexico was not only conquered, but remained thereafter under the dominion of the United States. The provisional government established therein ordained laws and adopted a judicial system suited to the needs of the country. The Supreme Court of the United States held that these laws and this system legally might remain in force after the termination of the war and until modified either by the direct legislation of Congress or by the territorial government established by its authority. We have had the same experiences in Cuba, Porto Rico, and the Philippines.
