A very amusing complication linn
arisen between Associato Justice
White of tho United States su-
Jiremo court and United Status
district Judge Parker of tho west-
ern district ot Arkansas. It was
thought that an order in reference
to it would bo inado by tho su-
premo court previous to its ad-
This came to tho attention of the
cour.t luKt Monday when ex-Atlor-nev
Gunoral Gurland presented a
motion to fllo a petition for a writ
of mandamus to be issued to Judge
Parkor. At tho May term of tho
district court in Arkansas Lafay-J
otto IIucIfcii was convicted of an
assault with intent to kill and was i
sentenced to four years' imprison-'
ment in tho Kings county (New-
York) penitentiary. Oil August 14
counsel for Hudson presented a pe-'
tltiun to Justice white for a writ
oforrorto tho district court to re-
verse its judgment and for a writ
of supersedeas and hail pending
said-writ of error. This petition
was indorsed by Justice White as '
"Writ of error to operate as a su
persedeas allowed returnable ac-
cording to law tho defendant to
furnish bond in the sum of 85000
conditioned accoiding to law to be
approved by the district iudgo "

Parker his bonil of $5000 mid
i naked to bo disclinrgcd .from cus-
tody. Judge Parker refused to ap-
prove tho bond or to disclmrgo llio
prisoner and made tho following
lentry on tho court' n cords re-
specting tho ordur of Justice
"It is found by tho iudoe of thin
ciiurl that tlio above order in made
without authority of law and in
v tlVonforo invalid and that tho
bo rid approved by him in obodi-
encfc lo it would bo null and void
nn3 that there would bo no nbligu-
tioh of tho eurotics lo have tlio
principal in court when and whero
he is required by tho terms of the
borjd to appear nor Would there
bo any obligation resting on the
principal to appear as required by
-the torms of tho'bond. For tho
above reasons tho Judgo ot this
court refuses to approve tho bond
tendered by tho defendant and
further it is noted that defendant
lias made no legal tender of bail."
Tho motion of Air. Garland of
last Monday followed. This prac-
tical overruling of a justice of tho
supremo court by a district court
judgo has created considerable
amusement among lawyers who
have becomo cognizant ot it and
thoy aro watcjiing tho caso with
some eagerness to boo what will bo

" not been lei-sencd by a knowledge
of tho fact that Judgo Parker 8113-
geitcd that ho is willing to appear
before the supremo court and make
an argument in pereon in support
of his position. The fact that So-
licitor General Maxwell has filed a
brief in opposition to tho motion
of Mr Garland indicates that Judgo
Parker will' not bo hoard.

petition for habeas corpus In be-
half of Famous Smith whieh
motion likewise grew out of Judge
Parker's action. Smith who is a
Cherokeo Indian was convieted
in Judgo Parker's court of the
murder of James Gentry. On
appeal to tho supreme court of the
United States the judgment of the
court was reversed on the ground
that the government had failed to
prove that the deceased was not
an Indian and the cast was .re-
manded with instructions lo set
aside the vordict and for further
proceedings "in conformity with
tho opinion of this court." These
"further proceedings" Smith con-
strucd to consist of his discharge.
Judgo Parker construed them to
mean another trial. He overruled
a motion for defendant's discharge
and awarded him a new trial td be
had in March next. Then Smith
asked the United States supreme
court for lcavo to begin habeas
corpu3 proceedings in that court
aB an original caso. The ruling of
the court upon these two motion?
cannot bo announced until the
court meets December 3.
Judge Parkor presides in a court
that has jurisdiction over a popu-
lation among whom occurs a
greater number of murder than
among any equal number of per-
sons in the United States and the
great number or executions there
has given it the name of "Parker's
slaughter pen.' Naturally many
appeals come to the supreme
court from Parker's court and the
records show several reversals
of sentences of death nassed
by the judge because of the
matter of his charges to the jury.
Chief Justice Fuller recently re-
versed a caso from his court in an
opinion which attracted much at
tention lienry Starr a noted
character had killed Floyd Wil-
son a deputy marshal who was
attempting to serve a summons
on him from Parker's court. The

know the official character of tho
mnn and believing the deputy
marshal was about to Bhoot he
drew and fired. Commenting on
this in his charge Judgo Parker
said: "What is this posse to do?
What was the deputy marshal
commanded to do? To go into tho
Indian Territory and hunt up Mr.
Starr and say to him that 'on a
certain day the judgo of the Fed
