S. S. City of Colombia Libelled For
Men Want Wage. Papers Taken on Ship
This Forenoon Officers Aboard-Only
Personal Ejects Can Be Removed,
Thero wan no troad of oivio
polico aboard tho City of Colum
bia at peeping dawn. Tho pooplo
aboard that etoamorBlept as peace
fully as possibly until tlw sun
roso up ovor the mountains in all
its splendor. It being tboir time
to arieo they did so and wondered
what tbo day would bring forth.
Tho anuouocoraont that police
officers bad boeu aboard while
they slumborod was a startling
piece of intelligonco which whon,
inquired about later, was found to
bo a miBtako.
Tho officers, captain oxcepted,
and crew of tbo City of Columbia,
some seventy-five in all, were at the
office of Kiunoy & Ballou last
ovening and awaited the prelim
inary work of tho typewriters.
Thon, at tho summons, they wont
upstairs and signed their names
to papers, libolliug tho City of
Columbia for about $12,000, tho
amount of their wages for some
threo months past. Thon thero
was sorno telephoning and work
with Judgo i'orry and tho polico
After that, all was quiot. Noth
ing more trauspireu until this
forenoon, when there was somo
hustling about on tho part of tho
attornoy for tho olUcors and
crew, as . woll as tho
polico authorities. Tbo re
quisite number of oots of pa
pers was raado out and nt 11:15
o'clock, Deputy Marshal Chilling
worth and two stalwart police
oflicers climbed aboard on tho
rather rickety ladder that protect
from tho stem of tbo City of Co
lumbia to tho Irmgard wharf.
Ohillingworth was armod with a
bunch of legal papers and tho
officers with clubs.
Papers were nnilod to tho mast
and thon tho Deputy Marshal
called on Captain Milnor, serving
upon him a sot of papers and
telling him ot what bad happen
ed. Outside on tho starboard side
of tho ship, was a bicycle patrol
man who had been sont down on
duty after tho sun had fairly risen,
and a Custom House Inspector, to
soe that no contraband articles
were removed aehoro. Tho offi
cers and crew wero given notifica
tion to the effect that personal
effects could be removed but that
nothing olso could bo touched.
This done, tho oificers woro left
ou duty and tbo Deputy Marshal
leturned to bis office, having com
pleted his part of tho woik.
What about tbo officers and
crow ? They romainod about tho
docks of tbo sleamor and warned
each othor to havo no troublo at
all with Captain Milnor, no mat
tor how much they might foil dis
posed. Tho City of Columbia is thon in
the hands of tho Polico Depart
ment. A return of some kind
must bo made boforo the 17th day
of this month. Othorwise, tbo
worst may happen.

Chief Justice Jadd Takes Habeas Cerpns
Case Under Advisement,
Mr. Robertson Lays Great Stress on Anala
fious Case Decided by Supreme Court
of the United States.
Mr. Robortson after recess con
tinued argument for tho petition
ers. Ho spoko in support of tho
plea that tbo Nowlands resolution
could not havo retrospective effect.
Tho terms woro very broad
forbidding Chineso immigration
and deolaring that no Ohiuoso
thon in tho Hawaiian Islands
could enter tho United States
that is, assuming that Chineso re
turning to tho Hawaiian Islands
constituted Chineso immigration.
The certificate givon Chinoso
leaving tho United States for.
idontifying them on thoir roturn
was about the eamo thing as the
pormit issued to Chinese leaving
the Hawaiian Islands. It would
be a most outihgeous hardship to
ezcludo men wlo hid interests
hero, who had married in this
country, who in returning were
simply coming home. Thero was
not so mucTi hardship in tho case
of thoso who wore seeking admis
sion lor tuo n ret time aud were
rejected becauso thoy did, not have
tho certificate requirod by United
States law. Chineso coming homo
to Hawaii wero hero at torn p ted to
bo rejected, not bboauno they did
not have tho United States certi
ficate, but becauso thoy woro
luboroiB. As to both these classes,
howover, tho petitioners contend
ed that the laws sought to bo en
forced could not be given retros
pective effect. Throughout tbo
movement to obtain annexation
thero never was any intimation
that tho acts of any Government
or official prior to thoovout should
become null and void through an
noxation. An altogotbor contrary
impression prevailod. In tho
payment of tbo Japanose claims
by tho Hawaiian Govornincnt,was
not a ropudiation of anything
dono by the former. It was
rather a recognition of tho
principle that even question
able acts did not loso their
validity through a change of
authority. Neither tho united
Status nor the Hawaiian statutes
absolutely prohibited all Chinoso
immigration. Both contained ex
ceptions of certain Chinese who
might bo admitted. Even laborers
of Chineso nationality woro allow
ed to ontor tbo United States un
der certain stated circumstances.
Tho spoakor oitod tho principle
that tbo law did not exict irupofsi
bilitios. Theso Chineso bud tak
en out permits beforo annexation
passed, so that it was impossible
for tbom to havo qualified to ro
turn hero according to the Ameri
can laws, Counsel quoted the
caso of a Chinaman who loft the
United States for Hawaii in 1880,
whon Chineso had liberty undor
treaty to como and go as tho sub
jects of tho most favored nation.
He was refused admission on his
roturn to the Uuited States under
laws passed after bo loft that
country. The Supremo Court
found that bis was among excou-
tioual cases to which tho laws in
question did not apply. Those
petitions woro not claiming tho
right to ontor undor a troaty with
China, but on account of thoir
complianco with tho statutes of
Hawaii at tho timo of tboir do
Chief Justico Judd askod coun
sel what ho wbuld say to a law
passed by tho Hawaiian Legisla
ture, containing tho provisions of
tbo American exclusion laws, sup
posing annoxation had never tak
Mr. Robortson answered: Such
a law would bo valid. It might
be mado to absolutely prohibit all
Chinoso immigration. But its
provisions could not bo enforced
to keep out such Chinoso as theso
petitioners, woro its terms only
