Emtoii Evening Bulletin:
The Star is mi-taken in saying the
clause of the Nowlauds resolution
continuing customs rotations was
notroferrpd toby tho Ohiof Justice.
It was montionod iu discussing
tbo power of tho collector general
not, however, as to the point raised
by tho Star. That papor is mis
taken iu this rogard also, when it
represents the issuing of permits
as beiug a function of thocu-toms.
The permits havo beon issued by
tbo Chiuo:0 bureau of theForcigu
Office. Customs officials have,
with rogatd to immigration, sim
ply to watch that nlions do not
'eu'or exc.-ptiug unuor too provi

Iu reviewing tho decision of the
Ohiof Justice, he should not bo
hlam u for omissions of points
not raised in tho nrgumout. Ouo
of tli Be seems to have beon the
question as to whether a China
man wuo leaves oitner Hawaii or
the United Slates, making, among
other provisions for his return, the
one required by tbo laws of the
country left, is to be regarded as
an "immigrant" wlion ho does re
turn. Ho had completed tbo ordi
nary definition of an immigrant
when ho had formerly Bottled in
the country. His taking out a
pormit, Hawaiiau, or a certificate,
American, to roturn, indicated
that ho thou considered himself a
"seitlor" in the particular foreign
country. It is as if a man left his
dwelling for business or pleasure,
and took tbo key of ouo of the
doors in his pooket to readmit
