According to what was announced In
yesterday's Bulletin, the status of the

ed camo up formally this morning.
Circuit Judge Perry took a seat ou the
bench along with First nnd Second As
sociate. Justices Frenr and Whiting.
Mr. Magoon, on tho caso ot John E.
Bush ct al. vs. Republic of Hawaii,
suit In ejectment, being called present
ed the following petition:
"Petition of plaintiff, praying that
this caso be not heard until u Chief
Justice of this Honorable Supreme
Court Bliall ho appointed.
"Now come John E . Bush ct al.,
plaintiffs in the nbovo entitled case, by
their attorneys, J. Alfred Magoon and
I. M. Long, and show to this Honor
"1 That this Court Is not properly
constituted to hear cases.
"2. That A.'Perry, Esq., is not legally
qualified to sit In this case.
"3 That heretofore, on the 28th day
of December, 1899, tho Honorable A. F.
Judd, then Chief Justice 'of this Court,
duly filed with S. B. Dole, President of
this Republic, his written resignation
of tho Chief Justiceship of this Hon
orablo Court, and that tho said A. F.
Judd tnen and thcro ceased to be Chief
Justice of this Honorablo Court
"Whereforo plaintiffs pray that this
Honorablo Court decllno to hear lao
abovo entitled causo at this time, and
until a Chief Justice shall bo duly ap
pointed and installed in offlco, and that
Hon. A. Perry may not Bit in this case.
"JOHN E. BUSH ct al., by their
attorneys, J. ALFRED MAGOON and I.
Wants Another Day.
Mr. Magoon, following up tho filing
of hs petition, alluded to tho import
ance of the question raised, but asked
for a continuance of tho caso till to
morrow morning. Ho did not desire to
argue tho merits of his clients' cause
until tho constitutional standing of the
Court was determined.
Justice Frcar stated that tho peti
tion did not convey all the facts bear
ing on tho question. Had counsel any
other facts to present?
Mr. Magoon answered that he sup
posed tho facts In the petition would
bo taken as established unless and un
til they wero rebutted.
Attorney General Cooper, being ask
ed by Justice Frcar it tho Government
had facts or authorities to present,
said that the Executive had concluded
to take no part In tho argument. They
would tako tho leading ot the Court,
however, by looking up authorities if
Justico Frcar stated that tho Court
was in possession of some facts not
mentioned In tho petition. It had cop
ies ot tho Chief Justice's letter ot resig
nation and President Dole's letter
thereupon to President McKlnlcy. Pos
sibly thero might be cvidenco producl
b,o also to Chief Justico Judd's in
tentions as to when ho desired his
resignation to take effect. Mr. Judd's
son, an attorney of the Court, might bo
ablo to throw somo light on this point.
Justico Frenr had understood that the
Chief Justico continued to drnw his
salary. On consultation with his col
leagues ho granted tho contlnuanco of
tho caso, and tho Court then adjourned
till 10 o'clock tomorrow.
After adjournment Justices Frear
and Whiting, Attorney General Cooper
and Mr. Magoon granted the Bulletin
permission to publish tho letters cited
by tho First' Associate Justico.

"Mr. 'Tresldent: Yesterday I re

"Judge Judd has been incapacitated
by illness from attending to his official

Statement by A. F. Judd, Jr.
A. F. Judd Jr., son and attorney-in-fact
ot tho Chief Justice, was seen nt
his otuco and asked regarding his
knowledge ot his father's Intentions.
He said In reply:
"I know that my father intended his
resignation to tako effect only when his
successor was nppolntcd. ho talked it
all over with me, and said that any
other construction would Involve a
serious Interregnum. I talked the mat
ter over with President Dole when I
handed him tho .resignation. President
Dolo understood tho matter In tho way
It was thus represented."
The Snlnry Drawn.
Justico Frear's understanding that
Mr. Judd still drew his salary as Chief
Justico was confirmed In tho proper
quarter. His salary is paid till tho end
of February last. In fact, an affidavit
to, that effect will bo presented in court
Ono theory heard in support ot the
contention that tho ofllce of Chief Jus
tico is not actually vacant is thnt tho
tenure of the offlco being for life, sub
ject only to Impeachment, It cannot -e-como
vacant oven by resignation until
a successor to tho incumbent resigning
has been appointed.
Another largo houso grcoted Ho-
gan's Minstrel Co. last night. Tho per
formance went with a snap from tho
opening, which Is accounted for by the
clover company becoming moro accus
tomed to their new surroundings. The
first performance In a strango houso is
Invariably hampered by even tho most
competent stage hands, the difference
In tho slzo of tho stngo, location and
arrangement of dressing rooms and a
thousand llttlo things to annoy and
disconcert tho performers. But each
artist Is rapidly surmounting theso nu
merous difficulties and In consequenco
tho performance last night was far
superior to that of Saturday evening.
The orchestra, with Prof. Sharp nt
tho piano handled Its part of the pro
gram with much moro Intelligence,
thanks to Mr. Sharp's ability and quick
perception. Mr. Danto substituted a
number of mystifying tricks. Mr. Ho-
snn, tho funniest of tho tunny men
who docs not conflno himself to set
speeches, was spontaneously amusing
as on Saturday evening. Better work
can bo looked for from this clover
company as they become moro at home.

THE PROGRESSIVE CHINESE
Oblect to Tbelr Being Compared With
Would Organize to Assist la Progress ot Their
Nation -For tbe Young Emperor Al
Against Empress Dowager.
A prominent member ot tho proposed
Chlncso Progressive Association de
nies the aspersion that this society
is a Highbinder aggregation organltc'd
with a view to cause troublo under, a
peaceful title. This young man is well
known to tho business community and
Is considered as among the most in
telligent and progressive of the Chl
ncso colony. . ' ,
"Tho work of this society In other
cities throughout tho world should bo
sufllclent to prevent tho chargo ot
Highbinders being placed against us.
Our object Is to secure recognition of
tho present Chlncso Emperor as
against tho Empress Dowager. ,Wc
want our nation to take its proper
placo among tho progressive nations
of tho world, accept European customs,
open our doors to trado and do away
with this hanging onto tno past
"Wo havo societies In every country
whero you find Chlncso and our whole
work has been to bring our nation up
to tho standard wo find in the nations!
whero wo havo made our homes. ,We
want the reforms the young'Emperor
believes In to bo carried out and our
nation to bo united Instead ot being bo
weak that no one cares what It docs
or says. Wo are tired of tbo policy of
tho Empress and will do all in our
power to sccuro proper recognition of
tho truo Emperor.
"Our societies nrc found In San
Francisco and Now York, why should'
this government object to our organi
zation. Tho young men leading tho
local movement aro not Highbinders.
They havo been educated In Hawaii
schools and taken up European cus
toms; they aro In business hero and
havo never yet been considered as
hatchet ruciu What they -now ask la '
authority to organize in order to make
their own nation as strong and aa wor
thy of respect as the United States.
We want progress in China and we
have lived in civilized countries long
enough to know that progress cannot
be obtained by hatchet societies."

replied that no new buildings whatever

agreement having been raado between
all the departments that nono would be
asked for at this Juncture. A new Jail,
that ho had been anxious to havo built,
was among other necessary buildings
