KcsldliiR In Honolulu
Tun Independent Los often polled
attontiou to the crudity and un
reasonableness of certain laws
od by those joustituting the Legis
lative CouMcils of the Trovisional
Govornmeit and perhaps more in
iluentially by tho minds of the Irani
ors of tho Constituttion of 1891 un
der which such laws though previ
ously promulgated received their
practical vitality and vigor Tho
unity of political prossuro and tho
temporary oxigenoies to an extent
controlled public rights and liber
ties and placed the masses in tho
power of the governing minority
as not infrequently has happened
elsewhere when established govern
ments have boon revolutiouarily
One very curious spocimen of this
P G legislation is Act GG Au Act
relating to the landing of aliens in
tho Hawaiian Islands This Act
provides that certain very objection
able classes of aliens aad per
sons without visible means of sup
port which means of support may
be shown by tho bona fide possession
of not loss than fifty dollars in
money or a bona fide written con
tract of employment with a roliablo
and responsible resident of tho Ha
waiian Islands shall not bo allowed
to land here or rather it makes it
unlawful for thom to land
A simple and bonoficidl enough
provision in itself but now to ex
amine the mechauism of tho work
ing of it Tho Customs authorities
are to inspect tho passengers The
inspecting officers says ho law
shall havd powor to administer
oaths and consider testimony touch
ing the right of any such alion pas
senger to land within -the Hawaiian
Islands all of which shall bo enter
ed on record All the decisions made
by the inspecting officers touching the
right of an alien to land shall be final
provided that tho Collector General
of Guttoms may review the decision of
his Deputy and tho several collec
tors of customs in case appeal may be
taken from their decision
Again whilo tho Oircuit Judges
and tho District Magistrates are in
vested with full and coucurront
jurisdiction of all misdemeanors
arising undor the Act tho Collector
General of Customs his Deputy and
tho several collectors of customs
are invested with full jurisdiction
in matters touching the right of any
alien to land or the question whether
any alien who has landed has dqne so
in violation of law Tho Oolloctor
General tries tho alion and the
judges punish him
Thus is created in our opinion
auothor impertum in imperio An
arbitrary and non discrotiouary judi
cial powor is conforrod upon a sub
ordinatq executive officer a head of
a department bureau constituting
him as it woro a Supremo Court of
appeal over his subordinates and
removing him for this purpose ovon
Irom tho supervising control of his
chief tho Minister of Finance and a
cabinet officer By a party of reason
ing hn ih tjio equal of tho Executive
and thfe highest Judiciary He is in
fuel tho Supreme Judgo of a Court
of Record composed of his subor
dinate inspecting ofilcors
It is to bo supposed that tho
framen of tho Constitution con
templated in their mental sanity tho
creation or authorization of such a
peculiarly constituted court of final
nppnalf tho almost informal ten
tative tud friendly discussion be
tween the justices of tho Supremo
Court tho Attorney General and
Mr Paul Neumann in the Habeas
Corpus oasd of- tho two Japanese
ladies on Tuesday last detained by
the Marshal at tho inBtauce of tho
Collector Gouorjd unfortunately is
of littlo value as a matter of
judicial record throwing light
upon the sovoral points thou about
to b raised iuasmuuh as on tho
motion of the Attomoy General
himself theprlsonura were reloaded
As probably a number of Habeas
Corpus cases will be brought should
the Collector General insist upon
exercising tho arbitrary powers con
ferred upon him it will be interest
ing to await a formal decision of
the Supreme Court especially in
view of tho near convening of tho
Legislature which intelligent body
will in view of our treaty folatious
with frioudly powers deem it wise
policy to amend the aot by rotain
uig it good points and rejecting its
defeats before diplomatic corres
pondence ensues
