DOLE HOLDS THAT
Changes Opinion On The
WILL HEAR' CASES
THAT ARE PENDIRG
Decision Comes as Surprise After
Belief That New Statute Pre
vents Sessions of the United
States District Court.
Arter listening to n strong urgu
ment by Attorney A. G. M. Robertson
this morning, Federal Judge Dole de
cided that. II would be possible lor tlio
United States District Court 1o con
tinue In operation although tho sec
ond Judge, Woodruff, is now absent
riom the Territory 011 his way to
Washington his resignation to take
effect on tbo first day or tho new year.
.Yesterday Judge Dole and United
States District Attorney Ureckons
agreed that, according to u sulci In
terpretation of the statute as passed
at the last session of tho sixtieth Con
gress, it was luiiosslhlo ror the Fed
cral Conttto. continue In operation
while only ono Judge was present.
Judge Dolo's opinion was more or less
Informal and upon further reflection
and listening to the convincing argu
ment of A. G. M, Hobertson this morn
ing he derided that ho did not ugreu
with the view expressed by Mr.
Ureckons mid accordingly formally
decided Hint the machinery of tho Fed
eral Court would not have to bo halt
ed because Woodruff Is now 11 passen
ger on the Korea hound for Snn Fran
Cisco. The general tenor of Judge Dolo's
decision this morning wns that In th
Interregnum existing between Wood
ruff's departure from 1 111 wall 11ml tho
taking effect or his resignation, his
absence wn-ild be considered In tho
light or a leave or absence and would
to nil practical purKJxcx be In thai
category. Tliu construction now placed
upon tno wording or tho stutute that
"tho said court shall consist or two
Judges who shall reside
therein," Is that they shall ho de fac
to residents or the Territory during
their term or offlco ami Is not con-
strucd to mean that If n Judge should
see fit to leave ror tho mainland ror
a period even though It ho with tho
Intention or resigning that tho inn
cblnory or the court has to be halted.
This vlevy was supported by Attor
ney A. O. M. Robertson, who cited a
number of authorities In support of
bis contention that Judge Dole Is priv
ileged to proceed with the cases that
have, been pending beroro him.
