There is more catarrh in this section of

by constantly failing to cure with local
treatment, pronounced it incurable. Set

A Hard Nat to C rack.
Washington Citt, Aug. 17. Tbedepart
Sf state has referred to tbe attorney general
tbe case of Capt Duvergif r, recently con
victed of killing an America t consul named
Staiiwood at Audahabe, Madagascar, and
sentenced to ten years' imriaoumont As
the facilities for caring for r risoners in Mad
agascar are not extensive, it is proposed that
Ihjvergier be brought to t lis country by a
United States war vessel aid confined in
this country until the expiration of hia term.
Tbe question that arises is, whether a legal
right exists to imprison bim in this country
when he was sentenced to at rve his time at
Ts ma tare. If brought bert it is possible
that a court would grant a writ of habeas
corpus on thi ground. No precedents
exist by which the state lepartment can
guide Its action.

raised whether be could continue to hold the
position without injury to his status as a re
tired officer, and Secretary Kndicott was of
tlie opinion that be could not. The case was
recently brought to tbe attention of 8s?re
tary Proctor, and be has det ided that Un.
Smith can continue in hia position at Wil

Slgnl Scant Action o a California Court
Saw Frahcisoo, Aug. 17. The sheriff of
Ban Joaquin county arrived here Thursday
night, and yesterday afternoon served a
warrant of arrest upon Judge. Field.
There was some doubt as to whether tbe
warrant would be endorsed by a judge of
San Francisco county as required by law,
but this endorsement was obtained Im
mediately after the warrant was served, a
writ of habeas corpus was sworn out before
Judge Sawyer, of the circuit court, and
heard hy him in chambers. Justice Sawyer
granted tlie writ and released Justice Field
on .5,000 bail
HUtory of tha Warrant.
When tbe sheriff of San Joaquin county
applied to Judge Rix, of the police court,
yesterday morning, to indorse the warrant
of arrest, the judge asked the advice of Dis
trict Attorney Tage. Tbe latter expressed
the opinion that as tbe warrant was in regu
lar form the judge should not consider the
individuality of the person against whom it
was dirncted, but should indorse it Coun
sel for Juxtice Field asked Judge Hix to take
testimony to ascertain whether there was
ground lor the issuance of the warrant, but
Judge Uiz waa unable t find any grounds
for disregarding the warrant.
The .Inotire Wrote Hia Own Petition.
Tbe petition for the writ of habeas corpus
was made by Justice Field himself, and is a
very long document. It sets forth in detail
the hisH-y of the case, Terry's and Mrs.
Terry's frvquent threats against his life, etc.,
and then stab-s that he was maliciously as
saulted from U'himi by Terry without prov
ocation; that he made no resistance; that ha
was not responsible for the presence of any
one to protect him; that be was merely pres
ent when tbe shoot in occurred, being on
his way from Loa Angelus to San Francisco
in the discharge of official duties; that
he was not armed, and has not gone armed
at any time for many years; that SStrah Al
thea Terry falsely and maliciously swore out
the warrant of arrest; that it was proved
and held in the bearing of the Sharon case
that Sarah Altbea Terry was an abandoned
woman without veracity ; that petitioner u
now holding court in this city; that hia ar
rest aud removal would seriously interrupt
his official duties, and that such interference
is coutrary to the provisions of tho constitu
tion. SerTlng tho Warrant.
Sheriff Cunningham served the warrant of
arrest on Justice Field at the circuit court
room. Cunningham ia a big, granger-looking
uian with grizzled beard. He seemed to
feel be was out of his element in bagging
such big game as an associate justice of the
supreme court He was very defferential
when he presented the document and read it
Cunningham stammered a little as he read,
and remarked that be had his duty to per
form. He then handed Justice Field the doc
ument "Always Do Tour Duty."
Justice Field glanced pleasantly toward
him as be took the warrant, and said: "That
is right sir. Your duty is your duty. Al
ways do your duty."
Notwithstanding tbe number of people
crowded into the little room, oue could have
heard a pin drop while these words were be
ing spoken. Justice Field glanced slightly
at the document, and then, with a smile, said
to tlie sheriff, who stood on tbe opposite side
of the table:
I waive the reading of the warrant, Mr.
Sheriff. Now do yonrdtity. Shall I consid
er myself in your custody f
fcYea, sir," answered the sherifl.

tbe coach was also down over tbe embank
ment, the biud truck reniaiuing on the track.
