veniraf Jfuuaii," whieh is ijotten up for
I he purpose, und is not an advertisement,
It is gonurnlly conceded that some
uhniigo in tlio status of tho Supremo
Court is desirable, Now that tho
number of tho judges is reduced to
three, the pie.ssuro of work is such
thai public iutoiests aro likely to bo
prejudiced both by delays and a
want, of exhaustive consideration of
legal questions in tho forum of final
Tho remedies proposed are an in
crease in tho number of the members
of this court, and a radical reorgani
zation of tho judicial system of tho
An increasing number of persons
favor, T bolioyo, tho latter plan.
The defects of our present system
aro important and perhaps 111.1113;
there aro two, however, which tend
so serioush to impair tho adminis
tration of tho work of tho courts,
that U103 should bo considered in
any discussion of proposed changes.
One of these is that feature which
allows tho judges of tho Supreme
Court to sit in banco on appeals
from their own decisions. All ap
peals from Iheho ollicors silting in
chambers and all exceptions to their
rulings while presiding at tonus of
court, come before them again in
banco. More than this, there is
nothing to prevent a judge sitting
in a chamber ease, in which there is
an appeal to a jurj, from presiding
at tho jur3--tri.1l of such appeal and
then fiunlPy sitting in banco on ex
ceptions from his own rulings at tho
jury trial. (Unauna v. Kaapokal.ini
It needs no argument to show
that a judge who lias once decided
a question of fact or a law point,
while not legal disqualified under
our present f3'stem from rohwing
such a question, is more or less men
tally disqualified. It is in aeeor-
dami'e with human nature that this
should bo so and it is guuurnlh re
cognized; tho juryman who has sat
on a case in which tho j 1 1 ry have
disagreed is not allowed to form a
part of tho jury who tr3 tho case
anew. The juror who confessos that
ho has formod opinions in regard to
tho issue of a ease about to bo tried
This feature of our present S3'.stem
undoubtedly places an appellant to
tho Supremo Court in banco at somu
disadvantage biwond the legitimate
disadvantage ho sutlers from having
to go into tho appellate trial bur
dened with an unfavorable decision.
This is I think gonorall3' recognized
13 tho JJar. It is the glor3' of modern
jurisprudence that all moil aro legal
ly entitled to a fair trial of questions
aireeting their personal and propert3
interests, when attacked; but if tho
precautions which have grown up to
ensure a fair trial boforo a Police
Justice or a jur3, aro relaxed when
questions of fact and law aro taken
to tho court of final adjudication,
does not this glory become some
Another conspicuous defect of tho
existing system, might bo termed its
want of system. The members of
tho Supreme bench have tho respon
sible work of investigating and de
ciding filially important questions
of law, which work requires exhaus
tive sttiih', and much deliberative
discussion, for all of which a great
deal of time is requisite. Tlito
ollicors have, however, also to pre
side at olovon jury terms during tho
3'oar, averaging, with tho time con
sumed in travelling, a good part of
a month for each term; they have to
sit in Chambers on appeals from all
tho Police and District Courts of
Oahu, and in Probate, Equity and
Admiralty eases; they have to issue
writs of Habeas Corpus, Mandamus,
Certiorari, Quo Warranto, Prohibi
tion, No Exeat Hegno, etc., and to
try the same if contented t hoy have
to hoar proceedings in bankruptcy,
proceedings in relation to the guard
ianship of minors, insane persons
anil spendthrifts, for nullifying the
marriage cnut -act and for decrees of
separation in marriage, to legalize
the adoption of children, to issue
warrants for tho apprehension of
uriminals chargeable with indictable
olfeiises, and to examine the same;
thoy have to try in vacation a num
ber of waived jury eases, and have
to be leady at all times to consider
matters of costs, bail, and other
questions incidental to the conduct
of tho various proceeding-) ju their
As a result of these multifarious
duties, ranging from Police Court
work, to eases of great importance
and dillieultj', and calling for their
occasional presence in all of tho Cir
cuits, it is not eas3 for tho Judges
of the Suptoino Court to find oppor
tunities, when all of them aro dis
engaged, for tho nooessao consulta
tions upon banco cases. So it hap
pens that thero is a good deal of
discussion over thoso cases 1)3 a part
only of the members of this Court.
Tin's, it will bo seen at a moment's
consideration, is far from satisfactory.
Litigants aro entitled, in their ap
peals to this Court, to tho fair con
sideration of their matters 1)3 tho
whole of tho Court, and this is not
likely to bo attained when a case is
This dilllculty would not only not
be remedied b3 a mere increase in
tho number of the judges of tho
Supremo Court, but it would not bo
in the least affected, for tho same
multifarous conglomeration of work
would still as incessantly as now
oectqjy one or more of tho force,
making it as difficult as it is now for
the whole bench to convene in de
It does not appear, therefore, how
an increase in the Supremo Court to
five judges is going to remove tho
main defects of our present S3stom.
The second plan referred to abovo,
for the remedy of tho present diffi
culties, is such a radical reorganiza
tion of our whole judicial 83'stem as
will introduce greater S3stem and a
classified division of work, the want
of which is now so much of an ob
stacle to tho administration of tho
courts. Tho proposed plan dostro3's
tho distinction between Police and
District courts, and places them all
in tho sanio class. It increases the
jurisdiction of Circuit judges, giving
them general authorit3 to presidoat
tho terms of their respective circuits
and about tho same jurisdiction in
Chambers as is now held ly judges
of tho Supreme Court. Two Circuit
judges are created for tho Island of
Oahu. The Supreme Court is placed
in its proper position as an appellate
court without original jurisdiction,
except in ca-jes arising under certain
writs, and tho goneral superintend
ence of all other courts which is ro
sonod to it. Appeals are so regu- ,
lated that no judge is called upon to
sit on appeals from himself.
This now S3stem 111.13 have its de
fects it can hardly bo expected
that so comprehensive a readjust
ment of our judicial S3stem should
be arranged without overlooking
some mat tors of more or less import
ance, which omissions would appear
upon trial. For the four 3'oars dur
ing which tho report emboilying tho
proposed changes has been before
the public it has received no adverse
criticism. The Chief Justice, in his
reports to tho Legislatures of 1888
and 181)2, has opposed these changes
on the ground thai tho bulk of legal
business is brought in Honolulu and
is likely to be in the future; that
tho other island communities will
not attract attorneys until U103' in
crease in size and diversified indus
tries, and the absence of law librar
ies at tho Circuits. These object ions
were made before tho report, at
which thoy wore aimed, was printed
and submitted to tho Legislature,
and no addit ions have been made to
them since, though in tho report for
18(J2 tho Chief Justice reiterates
Undoubted an increase in tho
jurisdiction of the Circuit Judges
would have a tendency to attract at
torney's to tho other circuits; while
tho immense increase of social and
property interests in tho various isl
and communities over the status of
a generation ago, when the present
system was adopted, is strong reason
for a reform which shall lwtter pro
vide for the piotection of such inter
ests. Such a change would also bo in
line with the increasing demand for
decent rali.at ion, and could hardly
fail of benefiting tho civil status of
the country in that regard.
At these times when any proposi
tion for increased expenditure is so
veioly bcrutinized, it may bo well to
refer to tho question of tho compar
ative cost of tho two plans. Tho
first cost of an increase of tho num
ber of judges of tho Supiemo Court
to live would bo $20,000 for the bien
Tho first cost of the other system
would bo $10,000 for two Circuit
Judges for tho Island of Oahu,
which would bo $1000 less than tho
amount required by tho first propo
sition, which $1000 might be ox
ponded in the direction, of the offeo
tiveness of tho now H3stein by in
creasing tho salaries of tho existing
Circuit Judges aud providing thorn
with law libraries. S, B. Dole,
