L. W. Hawortu - Editor.
The present outlook, is that
President Roosevelt will call Judged
Little from the bench to the guber
natorial chair of Hawaii before the
next celebration of the anniversary
of annexation. Should time prove
that the omens of the present are
cious purpose "his friends" work.
Mr. Sewall's position is very well
understood by the President, so
well indeed that the Advertiser
gang has good cause to worry.
Governor Dole on the other hand
has made an ignominious failure
and by his present inactive policy
is clinching the failure. If the
President has the best interests of
this Territory at heart he will ap
point Gilbert F. Little to the Gov
ernorship at the earliest date possi
ble. Governor Dole is leading his
party to sure defeat and the Terri
tory into a struggle with virtual

United States will date from the
inauguration of Judge Gilbert I

date from the hour when an Amer

comes, which will be within the

with annexation; the interests
which have suffered by reason of
annexation, will have cause to re

The civil calendar was called.
Immediately after the opening of
Court, the Committee appointed by
the Hilo bar to, draft resolutions of
respect to the memory of Johnson
Nickcus, reported by Chairman
Chas. M. LcBlond. The resolu
tions arc as follows :
Once more, and for the third time
within the period of three short
years, we arc called upon to mourn

Johnson Nicke'us, we the Bar of
Hilo, have lost an holiest, able, up
right member; one whom each
will miss; one who was always
true to his client mid himself; one
who, but n short time associated
with us, has left memories of energy
and perseverence that shine as a
beacon light to those of us remain
ing. A model, loving husband, an
affectionate, indulgent parent, he
leaves a broken-hearted widow and
a disconsolate daughter, to whom
we extend out heartfelt sympathy.
May his soul rest in peace.
It is the wish of the Bar, that
this its expression be spread upon
the records of this Court, that a
copy also be engrossed by the Clerk,
the seal of this Court attached, and
presented to the family of our de

The reading of the report was
followed by eloquent and sincere
tributes of respect from every mem
ber of the Hilo bar. Mr. LcBlond
said among other eulogistic re
marks: "Johnson Nickcus was a
striking example of a man who put
into practice the injunction,

JAMES GIBB'S SUCCESSOR
The appointment of a successor
to James Gibb, who has resigned
from his position as a member of
the Republican Central Committee,
is stirring Republicans on this
island as nothing has stirred them
since last election. In the effort to
unite on a man whose appointment
would cement factions which have
hitherto been at war, it seems
probable that wider chasms are be
ing staked out. The appointment
