Tlic nomination of Juilge SiMen
1. Kingsbury to succeed .fudge Ke
poikai on tlic Maui circuit bench
Rives general satisfaction liere and
the opinions expressed about it in
advance by leading citizens of Maui
indicate its cordial reception here.
Judge Kingsbury is mature in years
and in legal experience, is a rugged
ly honest man, and his candidacy
was backed nt Washington, not only
by some of the strongest, men in
Hawaii, but by influential people in
Ohio and Idaho, where Judge Kings
bury formerly lived, and by leading
olliciais nt Washington.
Selden 15. Kingsbury is a native
of Ohio. lie studied in Olicrlin Col
lege, his course being interrupted by
the Civil War, in which he did
patriotic service, "graduating later
from the classical course of the col
lege with the usual degree. He then
lM'canie superintendent of the city
schools of Flint, Michigan, later
having the same position at Cons-
tantine, Michigan. DttriiiK this time
he studied law, ultimately resigning
from his educational duties to prac
tice at the bar. While teaching. Mr.
Kingsbury received the degree of A.
M. from Oberlin Colfcge. In 18,81
le moved to Idaho, where he took
a leading part in organizing the
present State J5ur Association. He
soon was recognized as one of the
ending lawyers of the inter-moun-
ain region. For several years he
was special- local attorney for the
Union Pacific railroad and the Ore
gon Short Line. The standard His
tory of Idaho (Chicago: The Lewis
Publishing Co.) says that he took nn
active part in the development of
that State from its later Territorial
days. Other interesting data fol-
'Mr. Kingsbury has always been
x tireless student 'and after choosing
the law as his profession he read al
most nothing else for three years,
giving his entire attention to the
mastery of jurisprudence, While
ngaged in teaching he attained con
siderable distinction as n lecturer on
scientific subjects and had the honor
of securing and Hcnding to the Uni
versity of Michigan the skeleton of
the mastodon on exhibition there.
It is considered the best spivimen of
the kind in the United States. Mr..
Kingsbury has one of the finest law
oil ices and largest libraries in the
West. He has attained prestige
among the legal practitioners of
Idaho, his abilities securing him
high rank. As a lawyer he is sound,
clear-minded and well-trained. He
s at home in all departments of
law from the minutiae in practice to
tlic greater topics wherein is involv-
d the consideration of the ethics
and philosophy of public policy.
His fidelity to his client's interests
is proverbial, and therefore his
clientele is large. Socially he is a
Knight Templar Mason, a member
of the JJeiievolent and Protective
Order of Elks, and also of the ( rami
Army of the Republic. "
A man of such experience and
quality is welcome to the Hawaiian
bench and may lie trusted to do all
that is needed to make the decisions
of the Maui Circuit Court synony
mous with justice,.
