R. D. Sillimau was acting Jus

with Chief Justico Judd and Jus

mandamus sued for by Lincoln
D. Spencer to compel Collector
General McStocker to givo tho

Mr. Ballou for tho petitioner
contended that tho Hawaiian flag
does continue, and that it does fly
on vessels, and will coutiuuo to fly
thereon until tho United States
Congress provides otherwise. Also
that thoro is still a Hawaiian
Registry and a Hawaiian flag for
vessels enrolled thoroin. No
question exists in this caso as to
whether Hawaiian vessols havo

Mr. Dolo put it to a reporter, the
granting of Hawaiian registry to

creatine a now flag.
