arguments in NagJos case arising out of tho shooting of David Terry last summer when in the act of committing an assault upon Judge Field of the Supremo Court All tho woro present ex cept Justice Fioid Tho argument was opened by Zach Montgomery in behalf of tho appellant Sherill Ounninghanij from whoso jurisdiction Naglo was discharged on a writ oil luibnas corpus issued by the United States tho ground that ho was an officer of tho United States being a Deputy Marshal engaged in tho performance of his duty of protecting a Justice oC tho United States Supreme Court and could not be imprisoned by tlie State authorities Montgomery saidit was the contention of the state authorities that tho solo question to bo brought was jurisdictional and there fore anything bearing on Naglos guilt or Innocence was irrolclcnt IIo reviewed tho leading points in the ovidonco The chicit featuro of this review was that it was not in the purpose of Nagles appointment to havo him use his official authority to prevent a broach of tho peace but to have him resent forcibly any affront put upon Justice Field Montgomery maintained that unless there was specific statutory authority for thoinstructions given Naglo to accompany Justice Field there was no authority for his release by the United States Circuit Ho nialntttijuod this upon tho authority of Section553 Revised Statutes that tho writ of habeas corpus should not extend to a prisoner unless in custody for an act dono in violation of a law of tho United States If It wero true that tho act was justifiable homicide and necessary for tho protection of Justice Fiold then thoro need not bo any fear that tho State would not acquit him But it was for tho State to decide on this point AttorneyGeneral Miller who followed on behalf of the United States said he would baso his argument on two propositions it is tho duty of the executive department to protect the judiciary of tbo Government under tho Constitution tho itidiciary being in abeyance to tho execu tive it is tho duty of tho judiciary depart ment to sit in judgment upon tho acts of its officials in performing thoir duties in ac cordance with tho Constitution Ho quoted from tho words of Secretary Bayard that tho Inherent right of tho Gov ernment to enact and enforce laws gives it tho power to protect its servants in their actions Tho AttornoyGonoral argued his case upon this line Tho proposition advanced on the part of tho was heresy as old as the government which has boon refuted times without number in Congress and upon the jattlofiold that it was this same argument ihat tho executive had no power except such as was specifically granted by tho legislative department that used before tho war to deny tho power of tho Govern ment to coorco tho sooecling States Justice Bradley interrupted the Attorney General in tho course of his remarks with tho question With what force shall tho President ex ecute this power of protection of which yoi speak suppbssing tuo Marshal had no sufliciont force for tbo purpose a posse in tho first instance and if that was not sufficient with the army and navy Justice he has aright to aid all citizens of tho United States in main taining tho laws and protecting the institu tions of tho Joseph Clioato of New followed AttorneyGeneral Miller as one of the coun sel for tho Government opened his argu ment with tho statement that over since tho beginning of tho government tho people oJ the United States had rested on the convic tion that they constituted tho Nation that within its limits tho Government was sover eign and supremo and that it had within itself all tho powers and facilities to fulfill its own func tions and accomplish its own purposes In doing thistho Government was not sub ject to hindrance or iTitorforonco by any power or powers whatever The Government had tho power as it had tho duty to secure tho performance of tho Government obliga tions and to protect its servants and agents in doing tho duties entrusted to them For tho first time in two years the people were now mot with the startling contention that a Justice of tho highest court of

of the PanAmerican Com mittee on International Trade WASHINGTON March PanAmeri can conference has adopted tho report of tho committee on international law Tho com mittee on a customs union made majority and minority reports today The majority say the establishment of a customs union as generally xinderstpod would reqiiue not only a partial sacrificeof the national sovereignty of American
