The matter was referred to the rlstrtct

action against the owner or operator of
the trap. Inasmuch as it was located on
what Is claimed to be Washington soil.
Fish Warden Van Dusen then sub

Esther Mitchell, who , murdered her

6uch Is the decision rendered today by
a majority of the State Supreme Court.
The majority opinion. Is signed oy Jus
tice Crow, who wrote it; and Justlcea
Dunbar. ' Had ley and Rudkln. Justice
I-toot concurs .as to the right of the court
to appoint a lunacy- commission, but ex-
presses jio opinion on the deportation
matter. He says he doubts the proprl-'
ety of calling- a law void when the valid
ity of the statute was- not directly Ques
tion before the court.
Chief Justice Mount writes a brief tut
vigorous dissenting opinion, holding the
oourt has not authority to appoint a lu
nacy commission, 11 was done. Tbla view
la shared by Justice Fullerton.
Tho majority opinion is very lengthy.'
It briefly recites the killing of Joshua
Creflield. husband -of Maud Creffl eld. by
George Mitchell, and the subsequent mur-
der ot Mitchell by bis , sister, Esther
Mitchell; the arrest of these women,
charged jointly- with th murder of
Mitchell: the complaint " made by Frank
Hurt that the woxnen were insane; the
falling of a lunacy commission by Judge
Frater to pass upon the mental condition
ot the women, and the fin ding: by the
judge that both, women .were Insane and
should be deported to Oregon, their place
Rights of Common Law.
The application of Prosecuting Attor
ney Mackintosh, of King County, for a
writ to restrain Judge Frater from sign
ing the order finding the women insane
and ordering deportation is the basis for
Uila action, In Us majority decision the
court says the lower "oourt la possessed
of Inherent power and Jurisdiction to con
duct inquiries as to sanity without re
gard to statutory authority."
This power, It le stated, comes from the
common law. Elsewhere Judge Crow de
clares "knowingly placing an Insane per
son on trial for a crime puniahable by
death Is not to be tolerated by the courts
of any civilized nation."
Tho whole argument of the oourt along
this point Iss that It Is th duty of the
court to conduct such an examination
where the person is accused of a crime
Involving the death penalty, and that to
try an insane person is unconstitutional,
oooauee the defendant its not - -capable of
understanding the charge against him
and making defense. The deportation
statute is held Invalid because It re
quired the Sheriff to take the deported
person to a point without the state, and
could not legally be enforced, as the
Sheriff 8 power ends at the state line.
Kept to Await Developments.
The decision says in part:
"These women stand charged with a
crime for which they have not yet been
placed on trial, so they should be re
strained within the jurisdiction of this
state, so if hereafter they become sane
they may be subject to the further order
of the court."
Just before the close ot the opinion the
writer says that while it was being writ-
ten the court was advised of the death by
suicide of Maud Creffleld in the Seattle
Jail, hence as to ner proceedings are df
xnlased. The writ of prohibition Is grant
ed to prevent the deportation or Esther
Mitchell, but as to preventing tho signa
ture of the order that she is insane the
order is denied.
It Is presumed there win be a motion
Tor a rehearing, and after that Is diS'
posed of some days will elapse before the
remittitur is sent down to the Kins: Coun
ty court, so some days must elapse before
there can be any further move in the
case at Seattle.
