At 10 o'clock this morning thoro
wrfs a largo attendance in tho
Supiome CotuVroom, p hear tho
promised decision of tho Court on
a crucial point o tho Japanese
habeas corpus oaso. As previous
ly reported, the question takon
undor deliberation, in a half day's
recess, was- whether tho Court
could review tho decision of tho
Collector General, which rofusod
two ditTerout classes of intending
Japanoso immigrants to enter
this Ropublio. Among othors
ptesent wore Judges Carter and
l'orry of tho Circuit Court, Mar
shal A. M. Brown and many mem
bers of tho bar besidos counsel
engaged iu the cases, also Mr.
Shiinamura, Cousul Geuoral of
Japan, who has watched tho hear
It was 10 minutos past tho hour
when Chief Justice Judtl and As
sociate Justices Frear and Whiting
entored and Bailiff McGuin pro
claimed the Supreme Court in
session. When the Court waB
seated tho Chief Justice nuuounc
ed that the Couit had arrived at a
decision, and proceeded to read
tho document. The line of roa
sou in y tnkon to reach the conulu
sion is faintly skotohod below.
Tho petition is not sworn to by
tho Japanoso in whose behalf tho
writ of habeas corpus is sought.
It is sworn to by Mr. Bullou, at
torney, and he should have signed
tho petition. Undor tho common
law a stranger has no standing iu
tho couits of a country in which
ho is not residing. Tho Court
will not consider that objection,
however, as tho presumption is
that the people iu question are
prevented from engaging counsel,
or from preferring a complaint,
and that thoro is at least a cuspi
cion that they are being unlawful
ly restrained of their liberty.
There, is no questiou rained that
tho statute undor which tho Col
lector General refuses admission
to these people is contrary to the
terms of tho treaty with Japau,
thoir own country. Tho sfatutois
a copy of the United Stalos law
on tho samo subject. Iu that
country it has been decided by
tho courts that tho decisions of
oflicers empowered by Congress
to oct are "due process of law."
Such decibious a'ru not subject to
review except by the Superinten
dent of Immigration, from whom
an appeal can bo taken to tho
Secretary of tho Treasury. Tho
question is raised: If alieus are
restrained from entering the coun
try, by a wrong interpretation of
tho law by oxecutivo oflicers, can
not tho courts inquire into tho
spooiflo grounds of such
restraint ? The answer of tho
United States courts is that if it
was competent for tho courts to
do so, every alien rejected by the
immigration authorities might bo
brought into court and this would
catiRO endless trouble to tho
authorities. Besides, an ap
nea! to tho courts, if not
first submitted to tho Secretary
of tho Froasury, would bo of no
Tho action of tho Deputy Col
lector Gonoral is not judicial but
executive. It is claimed that tho
deoiBion of tho Deputy Collector
General, who was tho inspecting
ofllcor in this case, is not binding
bocauso it was not communicated
to tho petitioners and therefore
could not bo appoaled from. To
this tho Court roplies that tho ob
jection is not valid, as, for any
thing tho Court knows, tho deci
sion may havo been communicated
to them boforoitbis timo. "Wo
aro of opiniou," tho Court con
cludes, "that tho dooision of tho
Deputy Colleotor Gonoral cannot
bo inquired into by this Court."
Mr. Kiuney, inquiringly, pro
suuied that this decision covered
tho other case at bar.
Chief .Tustico Judtl answored
that tho principle involved was
the same in both cases.
Mr. Cooper moved that tho peti
tion bo dismissed and tho peti
tioners remanded to tho custody
of tho Collector General.
Tho Chiof Justice granted tho
motion and mado order in accord
Justice Whiting spoko of tho
large number of names in tho pe
tition. Ho had gravo doubts if a

In tho action for damages of A.

fe LaiidCompauy for damages, n
decision has been rondored by
Judgo P,erry, sustaining tho de
murrer of tho defoudont. Tho
suit was based on an agreement of
dofendaut to delivor to plaintiff
its bonds of the faco vnluo of
$7000, of such issue as may bo
made upon tho extension of do
fondaut's railway boyoud Waia
nao. It was claimed by plaintiff
that moro than a reasonable timo
had elapsed for defendant to ox
tend tho lailway. Tho Court does
not find that tho agreoraont was a
contract by tho dofendaut to extend
tho railway "within u reasonable
time" or at all, and sustains tho
demurrer bocauso tho happening
of tho contingency was not averred
in the declaration. Decisions of
tho Supremo Court nro cited to
show that paities must be-hold to
their areomonts. Kiunoy &
Ballou for plaintiff; Lylo A.
