HABEAS CORPUS INVOKED
Use of the Writ.
'The Collector General or Customs
spondent Question Likely to
i of Complicated Variety.
Arise A writ of haboas corpus wns
, aorved on F. B. McStookor, Col
lector Genoral of Customs, yoator
day nfternoon commanding him to
produco before Chief Justice Judd
at hia chntiibers, at 10 o'clock this
morning, thn bodies of Aionn,
TJum Hoo, Kow Sing, Ah Tim,
Tow Lin, Jan York, Ah Hoy,
Chun Sun and Ah Chow, who, it
'.is alleged, aro unjustly iniprisonod
and restrained of their liberty at
Mauliola, tlio quarantine bttthn.
Petitioners for the writ uro
eight of tho Chineso who arrived
in the stoamer City of Peking, and
"they claim admission to theso isl
ands under tho Ilawaiian laws.
They aro refused admission under
the exclusion laws of the United
States, whoso Government has as
sumed sovereignty under tho an
nexation resolution of Congress in
this particular matter. Magoou
fc Silliman aud .Robertson it
Wildor aro attorneys for peti
tioners. It will bo remombored that, in
-tho matter of maritime registry,
the Supremo Court has held that
the Ilawaiian law holds good
vhile the United States Govern
ment delays assuming eovoroingty
in regard to shipping laws. Tho
question tho Supromo Court has
to decide, with regard to Chinese
immigration in tins habeas corpus
caso, probably is whether it can
tako jurisdiction of a matter
wherein tho United States Gov
ernment has assumod sovereignty,
4his matter coming under the ad
ministration of tho customs au
thorities aud tho unnoxation reso
lution declaring that "until logis
iation shall bo enacted extending
tho Unitod States customs laws
and regulations to tho Ilnwaiiau
Islands, tho existing customs rela
tion of the Hawaiian Islands with
tho United Statos aud other coun
tries shall remain unchanged."
A point will likely bo raised as
to whether tho Collector General,
an exocutivo oflicor under tho cus
toms lawd of Hawaii, is not under
the jurisdiction of tho courts of
Hawaii for all his official acts.
Also, qb to whether tho courts of
Hawaii have auythiug to do with
interpreting tho laws of the Unitod
Still another nut to crack is ro
.jjardiug the official relations bo
j tweeu Inspector Brown, an official
of the Tionsury department sont
Jiero to execute the Ouihoho exclu
sion laws of the United States,
aud tho Collector Guuoral. Those
laws requiro that cot tain things
shall tie done by the collector of
customs at whatover port Chinpso
ura arriving or depart ng. Can
the collector at this port, boing ex
clusively in tho employ of the
.Hawaiian Govornmont, doclino or
neglect to do any of thoso things
at tho requost of the United States
Treasury's representative ? Or,
has tho Hawaiian collector author
ity to do anything, uudr tho ex
isting status of Hawaii' customs
relations, in tho way of executiug
any United States lawr
Tho annexation resolution makes
Chinese exclusion a distinct mat
ter from tho customs laws. It
-says, "Thero shall bo no further
immigration of Chinese into the
Hawaiian Islands, excopt upon
.such conditions as aro now or may
hereafter bo allowed by tho laws
of tho United States." This pro
hibition of Chineso immigration
has, as a matter of fact, been re
cognized already by the Hawaiian
Governmont as something that
might not requiro awaiting legis
lation by Congress to enforco.
All tho return permits to depart
ing Chineso issued by the Hawai
' ion authorities sinco Auguot 12,
the day tho American ilag wai
raised over theso islands, havo
beon stamped, "Subject to tho ap
plication of United Statos laws."
W. 0. Smith, Atternoy Gonoral,
appeared for the respondent bo
foro Chief Justico Judd this morn
ing. It was contonncd by him, as
stated by Mr. Robertson, that the
petitioners could not bo brought
into court today, for tho reason
that tho quarantino will not ex
pire until tomorrow. The Attor
n oy General joining in a sugges
tion that tho caao go ovor till
Monday, tho Court ordered tho
hearing continued until that day.
Altogether twolvo out of twenty
Chinose brought by the Peking
are rpjectod. The eight passed
are doomed, by a liberal interpre
tation, to comply with tho Unitod
Statos laws. Thoso rejected all
havo return permits antedating
tho raising of the ilag.
