objecting to the jurisdiction of the
.Military commission, lie nuoiou
from Sections 1 and 3 of tho Consti-
' lotion of the Republic of Hawaii in
sustontation of his objections, Mr.
I Neumann questioned the right of
tno Military Commission to sit at
this time of peace to try whom thoy
plo.ved. They had only a right to
sit, while tho exigencies of the mo
ment exist, in times of war. The
Constitution is paramount and is
not set aside by a proclamation of
martial law. Counsel would ask
whence tho Military Commission do
rived its authority to try anyone.
Only men who are answerable to tho
military or naval rules are tried by a
court-martial, excepting in times of
actual war. There must bo a source
from which a Military Commission
comes, unless tho exigencies of cir
cumstances warrant such. The
Commission usurped the rights
of tho civil courts when it
sat whore the ofTouco is not iu
violation of the laws ol war.
The crimo of misprision of treason
is against the civil body of tho coun
try and not against tho military.
One is beyond the laws of tho laud
when ho appears in opou warfare
without a commission, and is then
amenable to the jurisdiction of a
drumhead court-martial. There is
now no state of disturbance existing.
The existence of martial law was not
warranted in these tunes of peace,
though thoro may havo been cause
for it during the first two days of
tho rebellion. Counsel quoted the
oas of Jefferson Davis, President of
tho Southern Confederacy, who was
n prisoner of war during tho rebel
lion. Ho was not tneti iy a miiuary
commission, although in 1803, be
fore tho capture, tho writ of habeas
corpus was suspended by act of
Congress. Without authority the
commission who would sentence any
prisoner commits murder.
Mr. Kinney replied that when it
came to the contention that tho sit
ting of tho Commission was illegal
and unjust, ho would state that
everything they desired to do was
witli the wish that it would meet
the comiuendatiou and approval of
the civilized nations. Ho wished to
meet the souse of justice of all cri
1 tics. They stood as citizens of n
' sovereign power as loug as tho ro
I nublic exists, and when it foil lot
i critics judge of tho results and cou
I sequences of their actions. Thoro
1 was abundant reasou for the sitting
of the Commission, going outside of
its legality. The Judge Advocate
held that martial law constitution
ally exists, and the President is re
sponsible to tho Almighty if he
suspends the same, unless ho was
convinced that tho lives of law-abiding
citizens would be safe from as
sassination, open rebellion and mur
der. If tho prisoners wero allowed
to be tried by a civil court there
would Im a deadlock between that
body and tho military authorities.
Martial law rightfully exists and it
would bo the height of arrogauce to
suspend it. Tho lato outbreak was
guerilla warfare and not a rovolu
lion with a worthy aim.
Recess was taken till 1:30 o'clock.
Tho Examiner contains illustra
tions of scenes at the taking of Port
Arthur, which Fredoric Villiors ob
tained with his camera on tho spot.
They show tho mutilated bodies of
Chinese merchants lying iu front of
their stores, and go far toward prov
ing tho worst that was roportod of
barbarities committod by tho Japa
nese army. Mr. Villiors, who is tho
war correspondent of several leading
English ami American journals, is
visiting America while tho Japanese
army is in winter quarters.
Mr. Villiors has the following iu
tho Examiner on the situation;
NO JIOtlE FIClllT THIS WINTER.
I do not think that auy serious
fiirhtinir can take place until the
early spring, because I ho severity of
tho winter is only jti't commencing
now in China. We thoroughly be
lieve the Japanese army can go any
whero it please, but for the cold.
Chinamen won't stop the invasion;
but clima'o may temporarily.
Though the Japanese soldier is well
prepared for winter, having his coat
lined with fur and thoroughly equip
ped in every way, yet the eomtnis
sarv coolies are not so well provided.
Of course, in ,i campaign of this
description tho commissary is pro
bably the principal thing.
Tho roads being hard frozen are
iu a hotter condition now lor the
march of an army than they will bo
iu tho late spring. Hut the dilliculty
is tho weather is so sovoro that it
would bo impossible for troops to
camp out. Sometimes tho thermo
meter goes below zero and that tem
perature lasts for weeks.
NO INDICATION OF 1'KACi:.
Tho Japanese at present do not
want to scare tho Chinese Govern
ment too much. If the court loaves
Pekiu tho Japanese will havo uo one
to treat with; and if tho Japanese
enter and stay iu Pekiu waiting for
somebody to treat with they will
have to remain thoro. China will be
split up into many factious. At
present 1 think the Japanese are on
the horns of a dilemma, and the
sooner thoy make peace the bettor
for their own country ami all other
powors concerned iu this unfortunate
upheaval in tho East.
In tho meant line, if peace is not
patched up, and I am afraid it will
not be, for the Japanese nation is
full of fight, (though 1 believe the
present Government would be glad
to made some honorable peace),
other powers will undoubtedly step
iu, ami these powers, iu my mind,
will be England and Russia. The
present cnlfntr cordialr between those
countries is unmistakable.
As an old campaigner, 1 must say
that I have never met a bettor organ
ized army in the hold in every wa'
than tho Japanese. Thoir artillery
is au excellent arm, especially their
mountain giins. Tho men are sturdy
little warriors, full of pluck and
do not know what fear is. Their
olllcers are of the best blood of the
country, aud many of them havo
been educated in the French and
German military schools.
Thoir field Red Cross ambulance
service is superb Nothing can be
wanting. Fifteen minutes after tho
taking of the Table. mountain, tho
giaut fortress which was tho koy of
Port Arthur, iu a little village below
this great work the Japanese Red
Cross Hag was up, wounded men
wero being brought in aud atteuded
with the greatest care by tho dress
