The Tarn Pong writ of habeas corpus
matter, hi which Judge Gear raised tha
question of the constitutionality of sec
tions of the llevlsed Laws, In which
tho Codo Commission havo made
changes, was this noon decided by
Judge Itoblnson, Tho Court, did, bow
over, not dccldo on the Important point
mentioned, but granted the defendant
bis discbarge on a question of jurisdic
tion. Gear read the petition, whereupon
Douthltt presented tho roturn of Dep
uty Sheriff Kalaklola, In tho abscuco
or County Sheriff Brown. By this It
was shown that Tarn Poug was In cus
tody becnuso ho had been sentenced
lor selling opium without a license,
nnd that tho opium law section was
constitutional and valid. Ho asked
that tho writ be dismissed and Tarn
Pong remanded to custody.
Judge Gear pointed out that tho mit
timus under which Tarn Pong was
held showed that the defendant had
been convicted "of tho oflenso of be
ing charged with tho salo of opium,"
which, of cotiru, was no offense. Tho
defendant at this tlmo filed a denial
that tho mittimus Issued as stated by
After this, Judgo Gear went on to
tho most important point at Issue,
namely tho constitutionality of tho
opium law. Ho showed tho original
law on tho subject, which had mado II
nn offenso to "Imporr and sell opium."
'tno Ituvlsed Laws had changed this
Ktatuto by omitting tha words "Import
and sell." Tho codo commissioners,
who bad dono so much work, seemed
to havo been asleep when thoy wcrq
working on this chapter, said Gear
Thero wcro other' peculiarities aboul
tho license chapter. The Legislature
could not delogato power to tho Code
Commission to mako or chango laws.
Furthermore, tho Ilovlsod Laws had
hot been passed by threo readings iq
each sf tho Houses or tho i.cgtsiaiuro
as was required by tho Constitution,
Gear finally raised tho point that the
District Court had no power to convlc)
tho defendant, as tho punishment foi
tho otfenso might bo six months' Im
prlsonmcnt under tho law, and It was
as a consequence, Infamous. Tho DIs
trlct Court bad power to commit onl)
but not to convict, tho defendant being
entitled to a trial on an Indictment,
nd on an Indictment oly.
Douthltt argued at length, quoting
many authorities, on the question of
constitutionality. There had been no
delegation of power to enact laws to
tho Codo Commission, ho said. It was
not an enacting, but an advisory body,
which merely presented a report to tho
Legislature. Douthltt admitted that
tho Commission had no power to enact
ir chango laws. With regard to tho
point of tho thrco readings, Douthltt
tabl that theso wcro not noccssary as
long as the Act creating tho codo baJ
vnssvd threo readlugs.
Judgo Itoblnson finally stated that
to did not deem It necessary for tha
Court tn pass on tho constitutionality
if thn Inw nr nn Mm finnutliiti nu tn
whether tho mittimus wns sufficient I
or not. It seemed to tho Court that'
tho Jurisdictional question alono was
tuftltleiit. Ho granted tho petition
uml discharged tho defendant. Tho
tnattor could bo appealed to tho Su
premo Court, whero all tho point
could bo presented. Douthltt noted
an appeal, which was allowed.
