Tho Supremo Court Cannot Violently
Chnnsfl tho Meaning of thr
Word of n Lnw,
Tho Supremo Court has rond
ored a unanimous decision in tho
caso of Li Shai, who appealed
from conviction of footbinding.
Chief Justice Judd is author of
the decision, tho syllabus of which
roads: "An Act to provonj foot
binding approved July 26,
1895, ( hold to bo unin
telligible, inoperativo aud void."
Secliou 1 or tho Act undor which
dofondaut was convicted in tho
District Court is as follows:
'Section 1. Tho term 'foot
binding,' as in this Act used, shall
bo held to mean tho compression,
mutilation, injury or deformity
caused to tho foot of young girls;
also tho means used to bo compress,
mutilate,injuro or deform such feet,
aB well as any attempt to do tho
Section 2 forbids footbinding
and makes "any person who binds
or attempts to bind tho feet as
covered or intended to bo covered
by Section 1 of this Act" liablo to
a fino of not less than S25 nor
moro than SG00, or to bo im
prisoned at hurd labor not loss
than ton days or moro than two
years, or both, at tho discretion of
the magistrate; or such person
or persons may in place of such
funishmont leave tho Hawaiian
slands at a timo to bo stated by
tho magistrate, in which caso a
return within five yoars would ro
vivo tho sentence suspended by
Tho Court finds that tho Act is
unintelligible, as it provides pun
ishment for the results and tho
moans rather than for tho porsons
producing or using those respec
tively. ''A nuisance may be abat
ed, but it cannot bo punished,
though those who maintain
it may bo." The court say
that i they wero authorized
to tako tho ordinary meaning
of tho term footbinding, tho re
mainder of Section 2 might be
capable of enforcement; but whoro
tho Act itself defines tho offense,
courts are restricted to tho statut
ory definition, which seems to
them to bo insensible and thus
renders tho Act inoperative and
void. They conclude thus:
"Notwithstanding tho latitude
given to courts in construing an
Act of the Legislature, in order to
ascertain its moaning and give ef
fect to it if possible, wo aro un
able to do so in this case without
yiolontly changing the plain moan
ing of the words used therein. De
fendant is discharged."
