Two much The proposition of Chief Justice Ilartwoll to havo it
Power. bill submitted to the next session of the legislature
giving the circuit courts authority to refuse to grant a new trial in
any case where errors were made in admitting or refusing' to ad
mit evidence that in their opinion the admisson or rejection of such
evidence, whether material or immaterial, ought not to havpoffoct
ed the jury In their verdict will, wo believe, prove one of the most
serious mistakes yet made by any legislature of this territory
should the same become a law.
Judge Humphreys has written a torrid dissertation on the subject
opposing the proposed law. While much that he has said is of a
most torrid nature there is so much truth in what he has said that
we give part of the same with our fullest sanction. He says:
"It is true that both President Roosevelt and Judge Taft advocate the
passage of such a statute, applicable to the Federal courts. Rut it must,
be remembered, that the judges of those courts (Federal) represent, as a
rule, the pick and flower of the American bar, men who have studied
and know the law as a science, and who have enjoyed wide and varied
experience at the bar in great causes. The unimportant errors which
such courts, on rare occasions, may commit ought not, possibly, to call
for a new trial where it is clear (but only where it is clear) that, even if
such error had not been committed, the jury would not have reached any
"Our trial judges in Hawaii have not, as a rule, been up to the standard
required in other communities of those occupying high judicial stations.
We have had some trial judges here who, while knowing something alout
the theory of the law. never had any experience at the liar, and we have
had some who, when appointed, were not old enough to keep their noses
clean; and we have had others who, while old enough to ' judges, Out
not know the difference between a fee tail and a female .
This Rtat.fi nf affairs has made the lxsitlon of Circuit JlKlire ill tins
Territory a cheap one, and I can not give my assent to any legislation
which would, in my judgment, tend to still further cheapen that great
office. The legislation to which you refer will make our community and
the bar more apathetic, if possible, than they are now, in regard to
judicial appointments, because in the final analysis such a law would
give the Supreme Court the last guess as to whether the jury 'would or
would not have reached a particlar conclusion, in spite of the ignorance
and the errors of the trial court; moreover, such legislation would, t my
mind, tend to discourage the study of the rules of evidence and the
principles of jurisprudence upon which they depend."
Notice is hereby given that all old un
paid claims against the County (if Maid
