IN GRAND JURY WORK
rolluulng l the stenogrnnlllc report
of the proceedings In the Circuit Coiirl
"I understand you vanteil to see
me," said Mr. Cathcart, addressing tho
"It has come to the knowledge of the
Court that ou ndvlsed the Grand
Jury to sec tho members of tho Su
preme Court regarding the appeals lu
the habeas corpus casis" responded
Judge dear. "Is that tho case? '
"I think 1 had some conversation
Hlth them In regard to the mutter."
"Do jou consider that to be jour
duty as Attorney Genual?"
"I think so."
"I think that you were also con
sidering tho habeas corpus cases with
Chief Justice Hreur."
"No, 1 don't think 1 was.
"Chief Justice 1'rc.ir told me thnt
jou had been. Do jou sa you weru
"I talked with him n minute, nnd
the habeas corpus cases were mention
ed, but we did not discuss them." ,
"Did you advise with him concern
ing the case?" nuustlmied the Court.
"I would like to Inquire If I am here
In any other cnpuclt) than that of At
"Vis, as a wltncRs."
"In what case?"
"This cage, tho habeas corpus mat
ter. Swear tho Attornej General."
"I decline to be sworn In this mat
tei," raid Mr. Cathcart.
"Do jou mean that ou decline to
make these statements under oath?"
"No. sir; I mean I deillnc to answer
these questions. The Court has no
Ight to nsk them."
"The Court finds you guilty of con
tempt and will Impose a fine of fifty
dollars. If It Is not paid by tomorrow
noon the Court sentences jou to be
confined Iti Oahu prison until It Is
"Gentlemen 01 the Grand Jury" said
Judge Gear, "the court has Inquired of
the Attorney General s department
concerning certain facts. I have been
Informed that tho Grand Jury con
sidered tho question of uppeils In the
habeas corpus cases, and, In accord
ance with such deliberations, ndmlttid
the Attorney Geueral to take part In
such proriedlng8. That acting upon
the advice of this attorney, .Mr Cath
cart, jou proceeded to the Supremo
Court und cunsulted the C'hlif Justice
In regnrd to the matter. 'Ibis Grand
J in has been called, ax I li.no often
reiterated. In regard to the considera
tion of tho hnbeas corpus cases. 1 ho
law gave tho Circuit Court tho right
to rclcascmcn Illegally untrained, un
der projer application through writs
of hnLTe.is corpus. 1 ho code gave this
Couit tho right to act In these cases,
and this Court did net. Under the de
cisions of the Supreme Court and th
('lilted States courts there Is no ap
peal from an order releasing n man by
virtue of habeas corpus, and It was ap
parent to this Court that no appeal
would lie. In Bplte of that the Attor
nej General Insisted on the right to
appeal and has biought the mattei be
fore the Supreme Court. This Court
mnj have been In error lu refusing tho
appeal ami the Supreme Court may
hold and this Couit thinks It will hold
that I am In error. The Chief Justlco
said that the appeal will lie sustained,
und that there would be ono dissenting
opinion, and that the decision is ready
now excepting tho dissenting opinion "
"If tho Court please ' interrupted
'That Is what the court told me,"
tald Judge Gear. "The court told
mi' the decision would be reudj Tues
daj." 'The court said theeo might be n de-
c'slon Tiicjdnj." Int minted 1.. C,
AMod, foi eman of tho Grand Jury.
' I understand that whllu this Grand
Jlilj hud these eases under cunsldiin-
Jon." continued the Court, "tho Chief
Justice told jou what Its action would
be lu the matter. This action on tho
puit of the Supreme Court Is unparal
leled. I never heard of u Supremo'
Court telling u Ginnd Jury n thing of
this kind, Tho Giand Juij Is a part,
of this Court and when It does nut act
.... ..... n. .1.1.1 fl....... I... ....... ..!..... n '
UB (I I'.ii i ui Clita vuiitt iin lisi-liuui'na
Is ut an end. Tho Grand Jury evident
Ij does not think It ought to follow
the Instructions of tho Couit, and It
can be of no further service. The
Grnnd Juij is dlsehaiged.
"It Is not pioper for the Supremo
Court to talk with the Jury. If tho
Grand Juij wnuted to talk with tlfo
Chief Justice it eciuld have biimmoued
111 in as a w Itucss. The Court may have
cried In calling jou, hu( it did it for
this icuKuu. Tito Court did not want
these men held coutrmy to tho law
ami constitution and It did not want
it said that they weio being held be
ciiiisii the eomt did not call a Grand
Juij to hcai thcli eases. This Court
was unwilling to let theso men escui o
Old Lady Luiope. "Lud, something's
through any loophole nnd consequently
It became necessary to call a Grand
Jury though the Attorney General did
not want one at this time.
"The Court now finds there Is to be
no necessity for this Grnnd Jury or
why the Grand Jury should be In exist
ence. What cases jou have examined
should be reported upon , and jou
should return what bills jou now have
"It would perhnps have been better
not to have called this Grind Jurj but
the Court understands that the Grnnd
Jurj tnkes Its law fiom this Court.
If the Attorney Genernl appealed these
cases, nnd the Court cued. Is not a
matter for the consideration of tho
Grand Jury. Though the Court has
given jou Instruction lu regard to the
law jou have seen fit to disregnrd it
and tnken the statement of the Attor
ney Genernl on n matter of law, as to
whether the decision of this Court was
right. This action on the part of the
Attorney General Is wholly unprece
dented. His duty Is to advise jou as
to Indictments, not to tell jou what
this Court should do In matters jou
have under consideration, or how they
may be concluded. This Court docs not
Intend to hold the Grand Jurj for three
weeks until the Supreme Court gives
Its opinion In the habeas coipus cases
1 want to saj that I consider the action
of the Supreme Court In making the
statement In this matter to the Grand
Jurj', as standing alone In the hlstorj
of courts, within tho knowledge of
Mr, Cathcart "If the Ornnd Jurj
Is adjourned until Tuesday I will have
the Indictments readj for signatures '
"I do not think the Grand Jury ran
be adjourned, except from day to da ,
replied the Court.
"I would like to make a statement,
said Foi email Abies, "jou said that
the Attornej General had taken part
In our deliberations.' '
"Ho stated so to me,' 'was the reply
of the Court.
"I beg jour pardon," said Mr. Cnth
cart; "jou misunderstood me , 1 stated
that I had advised tho Grand Jurj I
told them It might be n good Idea"
"We had called the Attornej Gen
eral Into advise us.' exnlnftied Mt
j Abies. "Wo thought we needed the ad
vice of lawjers. We are none of iia
tmjcis unu iiiuiigui inere' weie sonit
questions that rhould be decided for us
bj lawjers. As to the Idea emuratlri
from the Attornej Genenils depart
ment concerning the habeas e orpin
cases, this Is not true. It originated
lu in own mind, and I am willing U
take the blame loi It. .Mi. Catli-.in

tlon. Relative to the coinmunluitio'
from the Attornej General, we av.
that to jou with other papers Vo
asked us concerning the men in J til
rc-arreslcd after being released on
writs of habeas corpus, and thought it
pioperto Investigate. We th,
that the best waj was to go direct tu
the head of the Attornej Geneinl a de
inrtnicnt, which had the matter lu
charge. We thought It wlso to see
the Supreme Court lu regard to the
appeal before taking up the eases fur
ther. The Supreme Court told us
thnt there might be a decision Tues
day. The members of the Grnnd Jurj
feel that they have assumed the re
sponsibilities of a Grand Jury, and f ,
willing to continue, but we do cn.t
think It our dutj to find out wheth"i
these men were Illegally Imprlsone 1
or not. We did not think IT Httlns;
that we should Investigate tueae
Mr. Castle, n member of the Jury

To the Clerk. "Let me fcee join re

port that the Supieme Court would
not give nn opinion In the habeas ioi

"It the Court is making a portion of
the Grand Jury's leport a matter o:

can, "I object. Tho minutes of the
Grand Jurj are seeict, absolutely In

"I do not think the law gives tluu

"The Court will not require any fur

Gear. "As soon as jou have completed

to excuse jou over one daj, or nnt.l

statement of the Chief Justice. I en
not unih-rstaud that, jour Honor. I

I had not Intended to he disrespect'

The relations netween this Court
vnd the Deputy Attorney General have
always been pleasant, and the Court
believes that the action of the Deputy
Attornej Geneinl was not intended. It
feels Justified In Imposing the fine for
contempt, but Mr. Cathcart having ex
plained that he- did not mean to be ills
'ourteous. the Court will remit the
