Hon. II. M. Sewall of Malno called at
headquarters today and offered his sei
Uccs for the Indiana campaign. Now
York Mall and Express, October 2.
Whllo the KepublUan party of Ha
waii Is having a fight for life on Its
hands, where, O where, Is National
Committeeman SewallT Adverttstr,
Judffp Estce yesterday took the Mar
shall habeas corpus question of Jur.s-
dlctlon under adwsement, promising a
decision within a few days. Following
the proceedings repoited In yesterday's
paper, V. O. Smith and A. B. Lewis
argued against Jurisdiction. Geo. D.
Gear made n speech for the amrm.v
tlve and Mr. De Holt closed In
behalf of the petltlonet on the same
side. Today -Mr. De Bolt filed a brief.
In this document .Mr. -De Holt pub-
mlts that there Is no doubt that Juil-,e
Estce has Jurisdiction, the only ques
tlon being one of discretion ns to
whether or not he should assume It.
It Is submitted that the Isolation ct
the Islands 2000 miles from the Main
land and u('00 milts from Washington
without telegraphic cjiiimunlcition
with the outside world, should be con
sidered. Authorities nre cited on this
The law and the courts Intend prac
tical and common sense results and
that Justice shall be doni in all cat.es.
The prisoner Is under sentence of Im
prisonment for six months. lMore
his case could be presented ut Well
ington the annual term of tho Fode.-al
Supreme Court convening In October
would be far advanced, with no pos
sibility of securing a position upon its
over-crowded calendar. Probably ony
new case would go over for a whole
Therefore, If Judge Estse put the
petitioner to his writ of error, the lat

would consider his case, he would lime

bo nothing left to eonsldtr. a varv ri
ent case, brought to counsel's atten
tion nrter oral argument In this case
had ended, was cited 38 one tint alone
should be decisive of this case.
The petitioner had exhausted all his
remedies In all tho courts of tho Terri
tory of Hawaii, cxecpt In the Unltfd
States District Court.
The great expense of making a
transcript of the record n writ of error
snould also be considered.
Th petitioner subml's that he has
been deprived of his r ght under tho
fifth and sixth amendments to J'i3 con
stitution of tho United States, and that
such questions come clearly within
tho Jurisdiction of this court, and It
would be nrc-emlnentlv nroner and nn
exercise of a sound discretion dictated
by Justice nnd principles of human llu-
erty ror tins court to nssume Jurisdic
tion. And when such questions nro
presented every reasonable doubt nnl
discretion should be resolved In favor
of the Individual as against the people.
Twelve authorities nre cited to show
that each case of the kind Is to be de
termined upon Its own peculiar facts
Where there can be no Inquiry until
the meeting of the grand Jury, nnd no
relief from Imprisonment meantime, a
writ of habeas corpus Is proper.
Tcderal courts have Jurisdiction up
on habeas corpus to Inquire Into the
cause of Imprisonment, nnd If the pe
titioner la found to be In custody , ir
an act done or omitted In pursuance.

petitioners contention Is sound and tht

for habeas corpus. It Is submitted
