Honolulu, Sept. 24. "It is the
opinion of the Court that the pun

this case under the statutes of this
Territory is nn infamous punish

infamous punishment for ntiy of-
1 fense, regardless of its gravity, and
this Territory may, by mere failure
to legislate, render absolutely inop
erative in this Territory the Fifth
Amendment to the Constitution of
the United States. Such a proposi
tion is "unthinkable" and absurd.

Judge Gear rendered a decision
this morning on the constitutional
point raised by Attorneys Hreckons
and Brooks, respectively, in the
cases of the Territory against Wall
Sin, selling poisonousdrugs (opium)
: and Nnkrunurn, liquor, without a
license, upholding the contentions
of counsel and declaring that, ac
cording to the provisions of the
Constitution of the United States

I is infamous.
I Decision was given on the ques
; tion raised 111 the case against Wall
I Sin, but covers other cases also.
When Criminal Court opened the
room was packed. The legal pro
fession was largely represented.
Judge Gear, in taking the bench,
introduced Judge Dustin of Day
ton, Ohio, who is passing this way
on his home returning, the visiting
judge being given the central seat,
Judge Gear occupying a chair on
Calling the case of Wall Sin,
Judge Gear proceeded to read an
exhaustive written decision on the
indictment question, occupying over
an hour in the reading. The decis
ion is given in part herewith, the
conclusion appearing above.
R. W. Breckons informing the
Court that Walt Sin was out on
bonds, Judge Gear ordered, in addi
tion to discharging defendant, that
the bonds be cancelled and the
bondsmen relieved of liability.
Concluding the reading of his
opinion Judge Gear announced that
he had read his findings to Judge
Robinson and that the latter con
curred in the decision.
In ordering the prisoner dis
charged from custody, the Court
stated that there was nothing to
prevent the case being presented to
the grand jury for an indictment.
I M. Brooks, referring to his
former motion in the Nakamura
case, contesting j urisuiction on the
same grounds stated in the Wall
1 Sin case, asked that his client be
'discharged. The Court desired
that the motion be put in writing
Vivas & Bitting, representing M.
G. Simoes, recently convicted of
gelling liquor without a license by
a jury in Gear's court, moved for

charged. The point decided covers numer
ous cases on the calendar in which
there were no indictments.

l'rnvtli'iil .Method Adopted in Missouri
Prof. W. II. Lynch, of Salem,
Mo., is regarded as one of the
greatest authorities on newspaper
statistics in the country. But this
is not his greatest claim to fame.
He has established in the public
schools of his home town a system
which has not a counterpart any
where in the world. Under this
system newspapers in n large meas
ure take the place of the ordinary
text books Friday of each week, in
the branches of history, geography,
literature, etc., all these being
taught from the files of the press of
the country. Magazines and week
lies enter into the curriculum of
this extraordinary school, also, and
it is said the results attained are
something remarkable. In explain
ing the methods of his school and
what led to the adoption of the
newspaper, Prof. Lynch said:
"I discovered years ago that no
text book was equal to the news
paper as a means for taking a
knowledge of the actual, practical
and up-to-date world into the school
room and I introduced it.
"History, geography, civil gov
ernment, algebra, chemistry and
the entire academic curriculum
teach ojily a theory of the world
and its facts. The real drama of
life, in its varied forms of commer
cial, political and social relations,
must be seen and learned through
the mirror of the newspaper. Let ,
every Friday morning be devoted
to the reading of the newspapers.
Have all the pupils supplied with
papers. No two pupils should have
the same issue of the same paper,
so as to prevent confusion by pupils
reading the same article. ICndi
pupil should read but one article,
so as to be thorough, and this plan
will give a greater number of pu
pils an opportunity to recite what
they have read. When a sufficient
time has been given for a careful
reading of some interesting article,
the signal should be given to quit
reading, and have all the papers
f"Wl. so ns to prevent the pupils
on seeing the articles as read;
and each pupil rises and tells the
, ' '
substance of what he has read an
1 excellent pan lor securing attention
