DURRANT'S APPEAL AND ITS EFFECT Open Letter From Lawyer Collins to the Attorney-General. Takes Issue With That Official's View of the Jugiro Case. Congress Intended to Adopt the Com* mon Law When It Enacted Sec'ioa 766 Attorney George D. Collins has addressed the following open letter to Attorney-General Fitzgerald, giving his opinion of the effect oi the appeal to the Supreme Court in the Durrant case: To the Hon. W. F. Fitzgerald, Attorney- General of California— i-iB.: You will recognize it to be the duty 01 every lawyer 10 defend the law against a construction rendering it not oniy absurd hut exceedingly dangerous to tne welfare oi the Stale. Accordingly, considering such to be the cheracter of the constructions you have p.aced upon section 700 of the Hevised Statutes of the United Stales, I desire to direct your attention to the fact that both the history and language of that law are opposed to the view you have taken. In the first place it was the purpose of Congress to place iti statutory torm the commonlaw doctrine that the writ of habeas corpus operated to transfer the legul cussody of the prisoner to the court issuing the writ ; all interference therefore with that custody was necessarily a violation oi thai court's jurisdiction—that, I say, is the doctrine of the common law, which it was the purpose ot I Congress to Hdopt in enacting section TOti o; ! the Revised Statutes of Hie L'nitea States; a! reference to the debates and to the authoii- j ties dealing wiih the power of the State pending the final determination of the case, where the Federal court had issued the writ in favor of a person imprisoned under I State process, will demonstrate the correct- | ness of my position, in the next place the , very language of the law precludes any other I construction; it Is only such proceedings against the prisoner "in any State court or by or under the authority of any State for any matter so heard and determined, or in process of being heard or determined, under such writ of habeas corpus, shall be deemed null and void." iiiat necessarily requires as a condltiou precedent to its operation that the writ of habeas corpus snail nave actually issued; until then neither the reasons nor the purpose of the lawdemands noninterference on the part of the State; for as the Federal court has not taken the case within the jurisdiction of the National Government no interference is possible. The mere fact that the prisoner has made an application for the writ is of no consequence, it is the issuance of the writ that determines the question. If the application for the writ is denied that is a reiusai oi the Federal court to take cognizance 01 the case, and the mere right or exercise of the right to prosecute au appeal from that refusal can no more affect the power of the State to deal wivh the prisoner than did the mere filing and presentation of his application in tne first instance. Any other construction would be open t> the iatal objection that it gave to the statute an uperaiion beyond the scope of the powers conierred upon Congress by the coustuution. In the third place the | construction you have Riven the law would ad- 1 mit of an indefinite stay of execution, am! in j fact, would make the law invalidate even the ! imprisonment under State process — a thing that cun ouiy be possible w here the custody of the prisoner has passed to the Federal courts, and that is never the case where the court refuses to issue the writ of habeas corpus. Now of course, I have not attempted to do more than direct your attention to some of the ; reasons why you shou.d not rest satisfied with | tie constructions you nay you are forced to I give to the law. I have not quoted Irom tib decisions nor given your citations from what may be said to constitute the history of the; events which led to the enactment; space would not permit me to do so. Nor <iid the \ courts in Jugiro vs. Brush, |l4o X. S. 291.de- Clde that the law applied to fuses where ti:t application for the writs oi habeas corpus is ' denied ; the point was not before the court; the applicability of the ia\v was assumed, bin not decided. Let me in conclusion make the suggestion that you bring the question belore the Federal courts, and in this wise: Ou the failure ot tbe warden of tne State prison to execute the mandate of the Superior Court, that court can cite him and punish him ior contempt by imprisonment. Then he can oo;ainawritof habeas corpus from the United States Circuit Court, and from the decision either way an appeal can be prosecuted to the National Supreme Court. Ot course you understand the law to be that a person in custody under State process in violation of a law of the United Siates is entitled to a writ of habeas corpus from ttie Federal courts. Or you can obtain a nikudimus from the Supreme Court, and, if adverse to the warden, by issuance of the fit-r---emptory writ he can sue out a writ of error, ana the case be taken to the National Supreme Cour by that means. The preferable method would be that first above suggested. Very respectluily, Gboboi D. Coi.lin.-. THE COPTIC ARRIVES. Breaks the Record Between Yokohama and Honolulu — Cabin Passenger List.

THE CHURCH TAKES UP SINGLE TAX. Rev. J. S. David Speaks in Strong Terms on " The Earth, God's Gift to Man." The subject of single tax as a reform measure is daily engaging greater attention among thinking people. Last evening the Rev. J. S. David of the First Sweden borgian Church addressed a large audience at 320 Post street, on "The Earih, God's G.ft to Man," in which he advocated in strong terms this foim of social amelioration. He saia in part: Ladies and Gentlemen: I do not stand before you this evenine as the representative of nny church, creed or political pariy, but slmpiy as a citizen, a lover of justice and a believer in the fatherhood of (iod and Ihe brotherhood of man. When Christ was preparing to leave the world he gave a promise 10 hi« disciples that he would send them the Comrorter. and that this Comforter, the Ho.y Spirit, would "convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment." Hence every Christian minister, following the leadings of the Spirit, hnß three duties to perlorm, the first of winch is to convict the world of sin. If I have a neighbor who is a thief, and I wish to elevate and s*ve him, my tir»t work is to convince him of the evil ol taking whu: belongs to another and the absolute necessity of giving it up In order to take evsn the first effectual step in the upward path. Society is my neighbor on a larger scale; and if 1 am conscious of a thievish eiemeit pervading our social laws and customs it is mv duty to reveal the Achan in the camp, that he may be brought forth and *laiu. Israel could make no progress while the thief in me gnrb of a iriend was alire in their midst. There is to-day an element of theft on a gigantic Male prevalent everywhere among men, honored by the worid and sanctioned by th.- eluimi. Tnis theft is the net of depriving men of the free blessings of nature. It is theft, robbery and gambling all in one. There are at least four necessaries of Hie which kind nature nas «iven free to all men and which, thertfore, no one has any right to exclude others from ; these are «ir, water, Munshine and earth. There is no recor liv ail the archives of the past thai G< d ever gave to any man a title deed to ai-.y portion of these four elements to the exclusion of others capable of enjoying them. Then fore they are things wtiieh man cannot exclusively possoss. Everything that I create I can possess. It is mine to hold, sell, or bequeath, because I either made It or paid another for having made it. But how cvi 1 justly own as private property, to hold, sell or bequeath that which neither I nor any other man ever made? In our present eyuem rents are everywhere flowing into the pockets of landlords, ever augmenting their power to control legislation and enslave tne peop.e. whereas under a singletax system the rents would flow into the public till, producing a fund suflieient to run alt the expenses of government and all public institutions, with an immense mud left over for additional u§e» But, of course, rants would be much lower than they are now, as they would be fixed by the actual needs ot the Government and the public uses. Hupponiug that the bood in our veins, instead of flowing into the heart where it would again be pumped forth into the arteries, should by gome strange accident change its course and flow into the stomach until the heart, veins and arteries would all be emptied and the blood piled up in the wrong pace, how long would it be before paralysis and death would result? Such is our present system. Our currency, instead of flowing Into the heart— the public treasury— where It would again return to the' people, is flowing inio the pockets of private ana irresponsible landlords, swelling their wealth to an appalling magnitude giving them power to debauch government, enslave the people and parilyie the nation. We may lecture f.irever about this petty reform or that palliative or yonaer cnarity; but until we direct the circulate g medium to the heart nothing bnt death will s;are us in the face. When tne singletax system i* adopted our currency will flow into the pub. ic till and thence be directed into the t-nauneis oi public use for the benefit of the whole people, producing a normal circulation ol the national blood, and thence nealih and prosperity. According to this system the amount of taxation is fixed by the commercial value of the land occupied. It it not the acreage that is taxed, but the value. A poor farm will be taxed little or nothing, while a valuable city lot will command a g.»od compensation for the exclusive right to use it. Such a pian would prevent speculating in the free benefits of nature; would prevent the holding of land out of "use for a rise in value, which others than the holder bring about, and would open the millions oi unoccunicd acres to the millions of people who are now shut off from access to them by the land-grabbers, who will neither use them themselves nor let others use them. It would provide nouies, and a home is a blessing that no one should be deprived of. Another great blessing that such a system would bring to the world would be the removal of tne burden oi taxation from the sboulderc of industry. I have noticed, «nd so have you row after row of low, shabby buildings, in which busiuess of various kinds wax being carried' on that taxed the capacity of the buildings. No one cared to put up a larger building, for at once a larger tax would stare him in the face. The finer the building the heavier the fine. Fined for indußtryl Fined lor Improving and beautinying the city! Fined for giving employment to those who need it ! If the tax were removed irom the shoulder* of all honest work the rusty wheels of industry would at once begin to revolve. Architects, stone-masons bricklayers, carpenters, plumbers, glazier*, etc., would readily find employment; business wou d revive ; speculation and abnormal wealth thence resulting would be suppressed; the growth of government-corruptlug monopolies would be cneckea ; the necessity ior superficial charities would be reduced by simple justice, ana general prosperity would be insured. This is not the only reform needed, but it is one and the foundation of all others. It is as vital tothe health oi the Nation as the proper circulation of the blood is to the health of the body. YOUNG CATHOLICS ARE CONFIRMED St. Mary's Cathedral Is Crowded During the Ceremony. Nearly a Hundred Boys Become Members of the League of the Cross. _ — .

CELEBRATED THE DAY OF PENTECOST It Was a Day Especially Observed in the Synagogues. Twenty Little Ones Confirmed at the Temple Emanu-El. *n^ Rabbi Voorsanger Speaks of the Growth of ihi Church and G yes CoDfi r man?s Good A: vice. The Feast of Pentecost was generallyobserved in the churches yesterday, and as is customary was made an occasion for unusually impressive ceremonies in the Jewish synagogues. What was undoubtedly the most im- | portant and greatest attended celebration j was that which took place at the Temple | Emanu-El, on Sutter street, near Stockton. Here, as was the case with the other synagogues, the floral decorations were superb. The chief feature of the Temple Emanu-El service was the confirmation of twenty little boys and girls, all ad- ! vanced members of the Sunday-school class. The exercises began with the rendition ot appropriate psalms. "Come ye and let us walk in the light of the Lord," was the command to the confirmants. "The law of the Lord is perfect." recited Rabbi Voorsanger to his little charges, "restoring the soul. The testimonies of the Lord are perfect, making the w:se simple. The precepts of the Lord are plain, rejoicing the heart. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. Behold a good doctrine has been unto you, therefore forsake it not." As the candidates toot their places Henry Irving Lyons delivered the opening confirmation prayer and this was followed by an address by Albert Bosenshure. Dr. Voorsanger spoke to the confirmants and pave them some advice regarding the future, which if tney remember and profit by it will do much toward molding their journey through life. What the rabbi dwelt upon most fervently was th* necessity for them to grow up as good citizens — respectable, moral, honest, pure men and women. The reverend gentleman then reverted to a resume of the church's history since the celebration of the last feast of t'entecost. He said becould find worJs only of congratulation and expressions of joy. The expansion of the congregation and tlie security of its future success were both matters lor general rejoicing. Much eood bad been accomplished, much charity bestowed. Ii was an example, he said, that the confirmants could not heip being benefited by. Tue cosing prayer wa? delivered by Miss V'.olet £hrinan and Miss Bessie Nordman addressed the con firm an t». FOR AMUSEMENT SEEKERS.
