IMMIGRANTS ARE CLASSIFIED Resolution and Supreme Court Decision Question of Jurisdict ion To Be More Argument. STelepbone 139. 315 Fort Gtimt Habeas corpus arguments were con tinued yesterday before the Supreme Court. In the forenoon Attorney Gen eral Smith concluded his argument be gun the day before. He was- followed by Judge Carter, who in a strong speech, upheld the action of respond ent Collector General McStocker. Mr. Thurston then took the floor and com pleted the argument for the defense. The contentions on both sides of the case were based principally on. the decision recently made by Chief Jus tice Judd, the counsel for the petition ers presenting the decision as a strong argument in their favor, while the at torneys for the respondent gave it a close analysis and endeavored to make some of the points in law there stated, turn directly against the ultimate con clusions reached in the document. Mr. Thurstcn made a careful argument on the wording of the Newlands' resolu tion. He contended that there are three classes of Chinese: First "There shall be no further immigration of Chinese into the Hawaiian Islands," which constitute one class; Second ' except upon such conditions as are now or may hereafter be allowed by the laws of the United States," which make up the second class; Third "those who are on the Islands now and who compose the third class." Those who are now seeking admission, he claimed, belong to the first class, for they have not complied with conditions which the resolution expressly states must be met. All the necessary ma chinery, he contended, had been sup plied for enforcing the law against this class of Chinese, therefore the law should be executed. In answer to the argument advanced by the opposing side that the laws could not be ex tended to these Islands in part and not as a whole. Mr. Thurston claimed that a law could be extended in piecemeal providing the part enforced contained within itself the machinery for its ex ecution. Mr. Thurston took up the Question of court jurisdiction. It was his belief that cases in admiralty and all mat ters which can be heard only by Fed eral courts, could properly be brought before the Supreme Court of Hawaii, with the exception of Chinese ques tions, because the Chinese restriction laws are the only laws which the res olution provides shall go into immed iate effect. The attorney argued the question at length and made extensive quotations from United States Supreme Court decisions. Mr. Silliman answrered the conten tions of Mr. Thurston, putting stress on the fact that no Federal court had yet been established in Hawaii and that the Supreme Court of Hawaii was the last court of resort, and, further, Congress intended to work no such in justice as that for which Mr. Thurston contended. Mr. Robertson, wlio followed Mr. Silliman in answering the arguments of Mr. Thurston, was, owing to the late hour, unable to complete his re marks, but will be heard again tnis morning. FIRST TFNNESEE. Advertiser Attention to the Boys is Acknowledged. (Clarksville, Tenn., Chronicle.) We have before us a copy of The Pa cific Commercial Advertiser, published at Honolulu November 9, for which we have to thank a friend and regular reader, Mrs. T. D. Garvin, sister of our townsman W. F. Coulter. Mrs. Gar vin is the wife of a missionary of the Christian church, who, for a number of years has been stationed at Hono lulu, and who, with his devoted wife is taking the liveliest interest in the Tennessee .troops who have stopped there en route to Manila. The newspaper above alluded to is a 10-page daily crammed full of news and live advertising, showing that the Honolulians are progressive in the matter of printer's ink. The eye, how ever, is at once attracted to a life size cut of Col. W. C. Smith, or the First Tennessee, U. S. V., and that of his son, the Sergeant-Major of the Regi ment, which appears on the first page of the paper. It represents the Colonel reading an order to his son.
