HIGH TRIBUNAL liquor mm MUST BE FIXED North Carolina Defendants Involved in Case Under New Order j WASHINGTON, Dec. If). (UP). The United States supreme court t took over Monday the task of de ciding what to do with violators of the 18th amendment indicted er arrested before its repeal, but not yet convicted. The decision probably will be considered also as a guide for lower courts in disposing of appeals of violators convicted before December 5, whe nthe 21st or repeal amend ment became effective, but whose cases have not been disposed of finally. I Byrum Gibson and Claude Chambers, North Carolinians, were arrested on liquor charges while the 18th amendment was in effect, and were indicted in the I central district of their state. On December <>, their attorneys moved for dismissal of the indict ments on the ground that the law i for violation of which they were 1 held, no longer existed. Federal Judge Hayes held that he had no power to hear cases in volving a law no longer in effect, and Solicitor General Biggs ap pealed directly to the supreme court to get a quick test. ■ "The department of justice is without judicial precedent to (guide it under circumstances such as those attendant upon the re peal of an amendment to the con stitution of the United States," I Briggs said. The court accepted the case and 'set arguments for January 15. • It recessed after yesterday ses sion until January 8. > Circuit Judge Curtis Wilbur in ,San Francisco recently ruled that prohibition cases might be dis missed because convict »d persons, if they appealed, would be freed by higher courts on the ground that the 18th amendment no longer was effective. The depart ment of justice has not accepted this ruling as binding, however, preferring vto obtain a decision from the hig hest court. Next in interest to the prohibi tion appeal at yesterday's session was a petition of. the principality of Monaco for permission to sue the S^ate of Mississippi for $574, 000 in interest and principal of $100,000 i:n Mississippi state j bonds of 181M-34 in default since the Civil war. The court "• vill announce deci sion on the petition when it meets after ti'ie holidays. Thr> bonds were given to Mon aco, to provide basis for the suit, j by Mary Euptemia Elliot, Dudley j Churchill. Marjorie Hanks, Baron Tweedmouth and Giovanni Del ; MragO.
