contenting himself with tiling a brer.
He opposes Jurisdiction. Ills brief be
gins by sajlng:
"In this matter the Jurisdiction of a
Federal court Is Invoked to annul tho
sentence und terminate the Imprison
ment Imposed In a criminal case that
was pioseciitcd under the laws of the
itepubllo ot Hawaii. Uut one other re
public was ever annexed to the L'ul'ed
States, and that was lexas. A t-earcli
of the books fails to disclose any dc
elslons arising out uf that annexation
that bear directly upon the present
question. It must be recalled that
Tcxus was admitted Into the Union as
n State possessed uf 1 complete Stuto
constitution nnd 'statutes.
Mr. llalrd goes on to tell of a case
whero one of these statutes was assail
ed on the ground that Jt violated sec
tion 10 of Art. I. of the United States
Constitution, but where the Supreme
Court held "that the restraints Imposed
by the constitution of the United
States upon the legislative power of
tho several States could ajlect them
only after the became States of the
Union, under the provisions ot the
Constitution, and had consented to be
bound by It, whereas, lexas was ad

extend to a prisoner In Jail, unle&a
w hero he- is In custody In violation of

tho United States."
The District Attorney states thu
bases of tho present eppllcatlon.nnd
s.i)s: "Tho question thus squarely
presented Is: Has this Court Jurlsdlc-
J tlon to Inquire into tho cause of tho
restraint of liberty of this petitioner-:"
In answer to this question ho cites
tho latest decision of tho United States
Supremo Court on tho Question, It be
ing on a case from North Dakota.
Thero the Court was not disposed to
consider tjie constitutional points rais
ed, saying: "Wo have frequently pro
nounced ngalnst the review by habeah
corpus of the Judgment of tho Stato
courts In criminal cases, because somn
right under, tho constitution of tln
United States wns alleged to have hu?n
denied tho person convicted, and havo
tepeatedly decided tho proper remedy
was by writ of error."
After citing an authority the Su
premo Court went on to Bay that In
stead of discharging, tho federal
courts would leave tho prisoner to be
dealt with by the courts of the Stnte.
and that nfter a final determination
there tho Federal courts would oven
thou generally leave tho petitioner to
his remedy by writ of error from the

SALMON PRICES HIGH.
The Tacoma l.t Jgtr of Sept. 17, sivs:
F shermen are now receiving the. highest '
price ever paid on the SounJ for silver
Silmon, Fresh$Wi JealfM and canrer
are bidding against each other for the late
run, anJ a result the price his been farced
higher than even sockets commarded.
Thirty cents Is the tveraire paid, but It Is
tepored that several fishermen have re
ceived even better offers for their catch.
It Is probable that If the competition re- -k
mains ktcn the price may go even higher
than It Is at cresent.
f he average silver salmon weighs about
eight pounds, so the price pal J tishermen
is practically 4 cents a pounJ. In previous
years there have been times when sock
eves sol J at this figure, but the price has
never been paid for sliver salmoi before
On the Columbia river canned anJ col J
storage men have paid as high ns 8 cents
for Chinook silmon Ju lug the season.
The Chinook Is worth more to the can
Mrs and cold storage men for certain trades
thin either the sockeve or the silver sal
mon. It Is a better hsh for salting. The
Chlncok can be salted and shipped In
brine to better advantage any other sal
mon. On Grays harb:r Chinook salmon have
been bringing a big price dirlng the entire
year. Abjut too tons of Chinook salmon
were shipped this year from oravs harbor
going to fiermany. In some mathtts the
"roval Chinook" Is better known than
other hsh and sells more readily.
