Attorney General Smith Presents a New Ylew
Mr. Thurston Connects American
With Hawaiian Law.
At tho opening of the Supmmo
Court this morning, Mr. Ballon
was given tho opportunity of sub
mitting ndditioual authorities to
those mentioned in the roport, on
onothor page, of yosterdny after
Attornoy Gonoral Smith led off
for tho respondent. Ho argued that
if the court took jurisdiction it
implied that the judicial officers of
Hawaii were also officers of tho
Uuit-.d States, and in that caso the
executive officers of Hawaii would
logically have to be recognized as
officers of tho United States.
Therefore tbey would havo tho
authority of enforcing the Chi
nese exclusion laws of the United
States. Mr. Smith emphasized the
dootriuo that thore aould bo ouly
one sovereignty over a country.
Mr. Thurston followed. Mis
main contention was that tho Ha
waiian laws for restriction of Ghi
ncso wero in part ropenled by tho
Newlands resolution. What was
not incousi-tent with that resolu
tion was not ropealed, aud ono
part in this class was that which
mado tho Collector Gen oral of
Customs the agent for enforcing
the laws iu question. That official
was charged with enforcing the
immigration laws of Hawaii, and,
since tho passage of tho Newlands
resolution, it was these laws as
amended by that instrument. He
quoted an American authority to
show that tho inspector had au
thority to reject und excludo
nlious, and was uot merely au in
vestigating and advising as
sistaut to tho colloctor. Mr. Rob
ertson had spokon sarcastically
of tho United States appropriation
bill as tho sourco of the inspector's
authority. This cnuutiy had not
vet received much advantago from
United States appropriation bills,
the speaker commouted, and per
haps such bills would not be
treated witli sarcasm Hero six
months honcp. But, leaving
plensantry niido, Mr! Thurston
argued that an item in a United
States appropiiation bill had all
the authority of law in itself, and
when it was for the executiou of a
law alroadj in existence it carried
all tho weight f 'ic'i prior law.
It was not u.cet...ry hi the United
States, aB had beou tho ra-e iu
Hawaii, for a law to agreo with its
title to mnki its provisions valid.
Mr. Ballon replied to the coun
sol fof the rt'B)ondnt.
Chiof Justice Jndd, while tho
Attornoy General was arguing,
linked that gentleman whether it
was not necetiBary for the court to
decide which horn of the dilemma
it would take assnme jurisdiction
iu those caees or decline jurisdio
tion in all matters having any fed
oral bearing whatever.
Mr. Smith iiuswered that tho
responsibility on the omit was a
sonous ono and would havo to bo
assumed by itself. He would not
go further than to hold that it
should not take jurisdiction whore
such appeared to bo oxuluded by
the Newlands resolution.

Captain Mitchell Was Yery Lucky
Complete Story of Affair.
Tho BtenmorKilaued Hou of the
Wildor Steamship Co. woht on the
reef at Kihei, Maui, at about 10:30
o'clock Tuesday night, Nwhilo on
hor wny from Hilo to this port.
The damago to tho stoamor is not
great. She had hor shoo ground
off and hor keol slightly injured
but, beyond that, nothing.
Captain Mitcholl is vory fortun
ate in that his boat did not get on
tho rocks worse than sho did. Ho
can thank his own cautiousnoes
that things turned outns thoydid.
Upon upprofichiug Kihei, Cap
tain Mitchell saw that tho lights
that aro always put out for the
larger boats to direct them to u
safe landing were not out. He
immediately jingled tho bell and
tho Kilnuea Hou slowed up. Then
he took tho lead himself and cast
it. The firct two tiraos. thore wns
a ehowiug of tou fathoms. The
next tune thoro wero ouly seven
fathoms and Captain Mitchell
cnod, '"Hard over," intending to
put out to bos. Just as ho did
thiB, ha felt tho stoamer scrape.
A liuo wiih put out attorn and
after a jittlo work, the steamer
slid off into deep water again
She then went into Kihei and yes
terday, started out for Honolulu
Kihei is uaturally a vory bad
place to make and, strange ns it
may seem, a steamer is mnch
safer iu rough than in Braooth
weather, for then tho waves may
bo seen breakhig on tho reef, thus
giving a warning to captains who
may bp in tho vicinity. Tho Ki
lauoa Hou is not tho first boat
that has been on tho reef there.
There is one thing, how
over, that may be depended 011
and that is that Captain Mitchell
will give tho place a very wido
borth when ho approaches Kihei
Tho Kilnuea Hou, ns soon as
sho oau bo gotten ready, will bo
put on tho marine railway far re
pairs. Divers wero down making
an examination this mdrning and
know tho exact damage.
