NEW YORK, Dec. 14 The Herald Naval officers believe the baitle- and THE PASSING JIOUK Section 1. Chapter lOi of the Act passed by Congress in ISS-j, regarding the importation of alien contract labor ers is as follows: "It shall be unlawful for any per son, company, partnership, or corpora tion, in any manner whatsoever, to prepay the transportation or in any vay assist or encourage the importa tion or immigration of any alien or aliens, any foreigner or foreigners, into the United States, its Territories, or the District of Columbia, under contract or agreement to perform labor or service of any kind. j "Section 2. That all contracts or agreements, expressed or implied, pa role or special, which may hereafter be made by and between any person, company, partnership, or corporation, and any foreigner or foreigners, alien or aliens, to perform labor or service or having reference to the performance of labor or service, by any person in the United States, its Territories, or the District of Columbia, previous to the migration or importation of the person or persons, whose labor or ser vice is contracted for, into the United States, shall be utterly void and of no effect." The provisions of the act are clear, and leave no loop hole for judicial con struction. The Commissioners of Immi gration are empowered to decide the condition of the immigrant, and the only appeal is to the Secretary of the Treasury. This is an expensive pro ceeding, and the poor emigrant is not able to make it. On November 21st, a female immi grant from Strasburg, Germany, was refused admittance, in the port of New York by the Immigrant Commissioner, on the ground that she was likely to l.l ir rhartre. She was brought before Judge Lacombe, one of the ablest of the Circuit judges of the Federal courts. The Judge said that he could not overrule the decision of the Commissioner. The following is a brief account of the proceeding: Mr. Gottlieb, who appeared for the woman, said that she had relatives in hie nitv who. would see tnat sne cnu not become a public charge, and he declared that the woman ought to be set iree. Judge Lacombe said that the immigration Commissioners had decid ed that she should be deported, and that he could do nothing in the case. "If the Commissioners," he said, "wish to order an alien drawn, quartered, and chucked overboard they could do so without interference." "But she has money," protested Mr. Gottlieb. "That makes no difference," said Judge Lacombe; "not even if she had $100,000. If Baron Rothschild came over here in the steerage as an im migrant and the Commissioners decid ed that it was likely that he would be come a public charge they could de port him. The courts have decided that over and over again. The only thing for you to do is to apply to the Secretary of the Treasury." Mr. Gottlieb said he would do so. The young woman is said to have an uncle in this city, Ignatz Bobb of 1105 Lexington Avenue. She paid her own wav to this country, and says her father is Superintendent of the largest hospital in Strasburg. Judge Lacombe is conservative, and his remarks from the Bench, show that he regarded the law as unjust in sev eral ways. These laws will be soon in operation nere. Under them, a Commissioner of Immigration may reject any imported laborers from Japan or elsewhere, if in his opinion, they are within the stat ute, and the courts cannot reverse his decision. The bearing of these laws on our plans to supply our plantations with laborers should be carefully con sidered. IS HE PENITENT? With Christmas on Sunday and the !.''m1 hMlul.iv on Monday, the carvers had two held days. Col. Bryan does, not relinquish his comiuission as the man at the center or" the political "'know." So far Hawaii is getting quicker at tention at Washington than any Ter ritory ever before established by the United States. In "undertaking to establish garri sons from Manila to Cuba it is found out that an army of even 100,000 spreads out "until it is quite thin. The sailors who shipped on the steamer City of Columoia last August and who have not been able to draw a cent of wages, certainly have an Al hard hick story rating. Admiral Dewey disclaims any inti mation that he is a politician. But he has a rare faculty of measuring situa tions, an accomplishment that is in valuable to a statesman. Cable Richmonds in the Pacific field .. ... 1 are evidently puuing wires, i ue wi- bp ns much of a l fJ lCfctlvy3 - I ' 1 ' v wv w factor in this matter as in tne -sic aragua canal enterprise. says: ship Massachusetts must go out of commission and that practically a new keel and several new frames must be .supplied to her before she will be fit for sea. This apprehension has been caused by an incomplete examination made by naval constructors and divers. which showed that the keel is buckled for two hundred and forty feet, and the frames are twisted in aoout seven teen different places in that distance. These injuries are the result of the ac cident last Saturday, wnen the vessel struck a mass of rock near Diamond reef and drove over it. :avai omcers are now astonished at the fact that the big ship did not sink.

ARE If there was a child in Honolulu that failed to get a taste of "Merry Christ mas" the misfortune of the little one cannot be blamed on tne biinuaj school or Kindergarten organizations. Airuinaklo's agents at Paris found that they could not slip under the tent, so stood outside and yelled at the show. The "solemn protest" was over worked by Spain and should be re tired. The contempt of Court incident is a most deplorable happening for several reasons. There is much sympathy for Mr. Davis, but there is realization of the settled principle that the dignity and integrity of a Court is assumed and should first of all be defended by bar members. DEMOCRATIC PLANS. NEW YORK, Dec. 12.

Occident and Orient I -ooo- BOTH ENDS MEET AT HOLLISTER & CO.'S TOBACCO STOW -OOO Mr. Sewall's Organ has been vigor ously applying the rod to the backs cf those -who did not vigorously urge abandonment of neutrality in May last This rod takes the shape of a cat-o' nine tails, the thongs of which are leaded with "cowardice" and "treason." As brother Dillingham appears to be one of those who did not urge the abandonment of neutrality, if the Or gan's interview with him, published on May Gth is correct, he, also, must sub mit to the Organ's lash. Is he suffer ing with Christian fortitude? Brother Dillingham, in all matters not con nected with the affairs of the Oahu Railway Company, is justly regarded as a devout and spiritually minded man. Does he manifest humility and contrition under the lash of this cat-o'-nine tails? Does he confess that it is done for his own good? When the leaden slugs of "cowardice" and "trea son" and "wavering" are buried in his back, does he feel that the infliction is deserved, and does he suffer with resignation and repentance? The old Westminster Catechism, describing the just punishment of Job, for his sins, declares: "Job kissed the rod, And blessed God." Does Brother Dillingham "kiss the rod" of the Only Candidate?
