F. B. McStooker ond Joshua K.
Brown have made rotarns to the

tor of Loong Choo and seven
otbors. Thoy plead that they nro
acting purely undor tho laws of
the United Statos, which mako
their action not reviowablo in any

proaent "that tho question of
whother or not tho enid petitioners

eral question involving the con
struction of an act of Congress of
a purely federal character cogni
zablo only in n fudoral court of the

that tho United States oxclusion

others, thoy nro alleged to have re
coived certificates of permission to

swer to Colloctor McStookor's

Admiralty Jitrlidlcllon Chaltenitrrt
In arguing on behalf of tho
steamship City of Columbia, in tho
Colcgrovo libol, Air. Hatch rained
tho niiostiou of Jurisdiction. Tho
Nowlands resolution provd's that
the laws of Hawaii shall continue
in forco until Congress otherwiso
provides, oxcopting whoro thoy
aro contrary to tho constition and
laws of tho United States. Mr.1
Hatch pointod out that tho consti
tution of tho Unitod States confers
admiralty jurisdiction eololy upon
Federal courts. No Stato in tho
Union has jurisdiction in admir
alty, rauoh loos any Territory. It
was ono of thoso incidonts of fric
tion arising out of tho presout
transition stago of Hawaii which
had not beon forcsoon by Congress
iu passing tho resolution of an
nexation. Should thia plea bo
sustainod it will purgo tho old
