The river steamer Sunol is again on an

day. "We had the Grace Barton ready to

order to accommodate the emigrants.
Captain Alex McLean of sealing fame is
to be master of the bark, and Captain
Quinton, an old South Sea Island trailer,
is to guide the expedition to tbe new Eu

wooded with uak, ebony, sandal wood,
rosewood and a large number of valuable
native woods. Oranges, lemous, pine
apples, bananas and all trODical
fruit grow wild, while the taro root and
bread fruit are very aounaant. There are

of pigeons and all the fish that the heart
of man can desire. Copper ledges crop
out all over the island, and gold can be
found in the bed of almost every stream.
Coffee, cotton and sugar-cane grow wild
and the c.imaie, nccording to Captain
Quinton, is almost perfect. It averages 80

the heat is tempered by the Seabreeze,
which blows continuously.

ESCAPE A JAIL
Judge Morrow Discharged
the Writ, hut Granted
The State Supreme Court Is
Upheld by the Federal
Petitioners, by the Court's Decision,
Were R manded Into the
"Long Green" Lawrence and Corre
spondent L. L. Levings of ihe Examiner
have escaped the physical if not the moral
consequences of their contempt of the Een
ate throuph a loophole of the law.
A noteworthy poi nt in the latest phase
of the case is the absolute indorsement
given by the Federal court to the State
Supreme Court's decision, holding the
prisoners amenable to an outraged Senate.
Hon. W. W. Morrow, sitting in the Fed
oral District Court, yesterday discharged
the writ of habeas corpus which was
granted last Thursday and remanded the
petitioners Into the custody of the Sheriff
of Sacramento County, but at the same
time admitted them to bail in the sum of
$1000 pending their appeal to the United
States Circuit Court of Appeals or if nec
essary to the Supreme Court of the United
States, ou a writ of error.
It was at once pointed out by District
Attorney J. C. Jones of Sacramento, who
represented the Sheriff in these proceed
ings, that the petitioners would never
suffer the punishment for their contempt
under the court's decision, inasmuch as
the Legislature would adjourn to-morrow
(Saturday). "1 admit," he added, "that
this is- outside the record."
"It is unavoidable," was the court's
brief comment. "This is the law and not
the fault of the court."
The argument on the part of counsel
occupied the entire afternoon, Deputy
Attorney-General Anderson representing
the Benate, G. W. McEnerncy and Charles
J. Heggarty the petitioners «nd District
Attorney Jones of Sacramento the Bheriff.
Mr. McEnerney'a contention in support of
tho writ was that the action of the Senate
in imprisoning the petitioners was a vio
lation of tho constitution of ti:e United
States, the fourteenth amendment of
which declared the immunity of citizens
from arrest and imprisonment without
due process of law; that the petitioners
had been imprisoned because they main
tained the right to rely upon that immu
nity which, Mr. McEnerney held, it was
the duty of this court to construe in ex
actly the same manner as the United
States Supreme Court bad construed an
identical provision of the constitution.
He denied that the commitment was a
process of law, nnd described it as null
and void because it neglected to specify
ttie exact nature of the contempt, nor did
it reproduce the questions which it al
leged the petitioners had declined to an
swer. The Sheriff was therefore left with
out proper directions as to wnen he should
release His prisoners, and thereby incurred
the risk of illegal detention.
The Deputy Attorney-G?neral and Dis
trict Attorney Jones combined to nega
tive Mr. McEnerney's argument. The
former maintained it was a universal rule
of the Federal courts that when the high
est State court had pass d upon questions
of law within its jurisdiction, such de
cision should be binding upon the Federal
courts. The only question that the Federal
court could passioly entertain with re
spect to this writ was whether or not the
laws of the State under which the State
courts had held that the Senate had juris
diction were in conflict with these consti
He also contended that if the State
courts had not adjudicated the matter
under the settled rule of hab-as corpus,
this court in entertaining the writ could
consider only two questions: First, the
jurisdiction of the Seriate to act, and
»econ t, the validity of the process upon
its face. The irregularity of the commit
ment, to which Mr. McEnerney referred,
could not vitiate the authority of that,
document. The full report of the ques
tions ;isked by the committee could be
foun<l among the records oi the Senate.
Judge Morrow in rendering his decision,
which included the citation of numerous
authorities, held that whan matters of
this nature bad been determined by the
State courts, the proper recourse of the,
petitioners was to appeal to the Supreme*
Court of the United States.
"It is not a proper proceeding," said be,
"for the District or Circuit courts to r<
view cases occurring in the State courts
where those courts have jurisdiction.
This beine the case, without going into
the merits of the question or considering
the objections raised, 1 think I am au
thorized under the decisions X have quoted ,
to bold that the writ of habeas corpus
should be discharged and that the peti
tioners should be allowed to pursue their
remedy by those other methods indicated
in these decisions. The writ of habeas
corpus will, therefore, b» discharged, and
the petitioners remanded into the custody
of the Sheriff 6f Sacramento."
Mr. McEnerney subsequently gave no
lice of his intention to appeal, and the
petitioners were admitted to bail in the
Simply Fighting for Time.
SACRAMENTO, Cat.., March 19.— 1t is
generally understood by the members of
the Senate that the persistent and repeat
ed attempts of the two Examiner attaches
to be released from custody under habeas
corpus proceedings are put forth simply
to fight a ainst time in the hope that the
Legislature will adjourn without taking
steps to provide for their confinement
after that body dies.
As there is notuing of a vindictive char
acter in the course the Senate has pursued
in this matter, it will probably consider
the punishment to whicn the two con
tumacious witnesses have been already
subjected as sufficient, and will take no,
further steps looking to their imprison
The result of such inaction will be that
should the prisoners be again remanded,
which is highly probable, they will likely
secure their release when the Legislature
has adjourned by a petition for a new writ
of habeas corpus declaring that they are
ready to purge themselves of contempt
and that there is no legal representative
of the Senate to whom they can give the
answers which they originally refused to

FOUGHT FOR HIS LIFE.
An Armen an Watchman Has a
Desperate Struggle With
Admits 'He Was Afraid, but Ap
•a-ently He Mads an Effect
Vahan Azhterian is a young Armenian,
who bas been away from his own troubled
country out a few months yet i* doubtful
if in the land terrorized by the unspeaka
ble Turk be had any more desperate en
counters than the one he engaged in with
two burglars early yesterday morning.
Azhterian is employed as salesman dur
ing the day and as night watchman for
Paul Conriau, the proprietor of a Turkish
rug establishment in the building at 317
Powell street, for merly the quarters of the
Cosmos Club. About 3 o'clock yesterday
morning the Armenian was awakened by
a strange noise in an adjoining room. He
started to investigate, but had barely left
his sleeping apartment when he was con
front-d by two strange men.
"I was much sleepy," said the Arme
nian, in describing the affair, "and I was
a. so afraid. I fired my revolver, and then
one of the men hit me with the end of his
pistol, and putting it dose to me, fired
once. Then they ran away."
The young man has two painful scalp
wounds and a severe powder burn as the
result of his adventure. He was also suf
fering greatly from the shock yesterday.

burglars had prepared to carry away, was

The Finance Committee ol tbe Board of

bill for detective services contracted by
tbe Grand Jnry while conducting its in

The bill was for six days' work by a
Pinkerton detective, which, with ex
penseg, including liquid refreshments,
brought tbe amount up to $31 50.
The committee refused to r< commend
the payment of tbe demand because no
authority had been piven to contract such
indebtedness, and that the regular detec
