" liif District Jm'cR.
The following froit Case and
Comment is applicable to the ques
tion of electing Distric Judges in
Hawaii: The belief the t the people
can be trusted to elect judges as
well as other officers, tlnugli it has
been dominant in the c gauizatio'n
of most of the state governments in
this country, lids never I ten univcrs
ally accepted. Pcrsonsjlvho have a
tendency to see defects sore readily
than axcellcucies, nndjthosc who
arc lcas.t inclined to trust in the
common people, are vy prone to
regard the popular clectitti of judges
as a sad mistake. But tiis all de
pends on the fitness of! he people
for self-government. It may be,
indeed, that tnc v .iters 3t a state
might be intelligent ctioij Ii to make
a fair success in the 'dection of
tutelliircnt enough to c
judges; but when the p bple reach
n grade of intelligence hi It enough,
no system of choosing , ulges can
be so good as that of th r election
by popular vote. Some significant
facts were presented on lis subject
in the recent election in he state of
New York. In severa instances
candidates of the domi ant party
for judicial positions we: defeated.
It is not the province oft is journal,
and it certainly is not t!: intent or
wish, to pass judgmdt on the
merits of the respective hndidates,
or to intimate that the Jidges de
feated were not the equip or super
iors of those who we elected.
The matter is referred tl only as a
strong indication of a lirpose on
the part of the voters Jo choose
their judges without mch regard
to politics. In that lie ; and to
that extent their action imicourag
iug to those who belie i 111 the
policy oi an elective udiciary.
There is abundant rcaso for trust
ing the people of this nintry to
choose their own judge The re
sult is not always ideal but it is
certainly not often bad. It is safe
to say that there has be 1 no such
dissatisfaction with the exults of
judicial elections in rcci tears as
there has been in EndaVl over
what the leading journal f that
country have denounced astdicial
scandals in the appoiutmci to the
bench of purely political L risters
and the relatives of cabinet tjnisters
or political partisans, wit ut re

the same course.
