The supreme court having jurisdiction to review on appeal decisions of the district courts in habeas corpus proceedings ( In re Jennings, 46 Idaho 142, 267 P. 227) will not exercise its power (Const., art. 5, sec. 9; C. S., sec. 9275) to grant an original writ of habeas corpus except in extraordinary cases. ( In re Burnette, 73 Kan. 609, 85 P. 575; Ex parte Shaw, 7 Ohio St. 81, 70 Am. Dec. 55; Ex parte Shean, 25 Ohio St. 440; State v. Wolfer, 127 Minn. 102, 148 N.W. 896, L.R.A. 1915B, 95; Ex parte Lynn, 19 Tex.

The petition is accordingly denied.
