adjourned, both sides being physi

postpone further consideration of
the Norris resolution, that caused
all the trouble, until tomorrow.
The incident that forced the re

to rule without consulting the prec

Attorney Begins Fight In The
Federal Court To Save
In tho United States District
Court this morning nrg'nment was
begun on a petition for a writ of
habeas corpus presented by J. Llght
oot, attorney for MaKIno, Negoro,
Tasaka a'nd Soga, the four Jnpaneso
Alio ate now serving tho third day
of their ten-month sentence, passed
upon them as a result of their con
viction in the Circuit Court.
'The case was brought Into tho
Federal Court on constitutional
grout ds, Ughtfoot claiming that his
clents are guilty of an Infamous
crime under the maximum punish
ment for conspiracy in the tliltd
degree ono jcar'g Imprisonment and
a fine of $1000. Their sentence was
only ten months and a fine of 1300,
but tho determination of the degreo
of thoir crime, whether n misde
meanor or felony, pivots upon tho
maximum sontonce that might have
been Imposed upon them.
In his argument this morning tho
attorney for the conWcted conspira
tors declared that the maximum sen
tence brought tho offenfe of hl
cllonts within the crltros classed as
"Infamous," and that consequent!)
they had been deprived of a consti
tutional right by being prosecuted
without Indictment by the drand
Tho law proUdes that a crime
punishable by Imprisonment for
more than a, year is a felony and
that an offense punishable by a leas
er term of Imprisonment is a misde
meanor. It is altio provided that
when a convicted man Is unable to
pay a fluo he shall "work it out",
nt the rata of one dollar a day. In
the event of a man convicted of
cututplincy In tho third degree as
were Maktno, Negoro, Tasaka nntl
Soga leeching tho maximum sen
tence and being unnblo to pay tbo
flno, It would follow that he wo.ild
be Imprisoned for n period longer
than twelve months.
In tho opinion of local attorney,
tho Interpt elation of tnu "Infamous
crime" phrase might rlpsslbly be fa
orablo to tho Japanese, but It Is not
regarded probable that Federal
Judge Robertson will Interfere.
