Tho funeral took place tho same

with him for a long timo and
which finally caused bis death.
Ho loaves a widow and a family
of sixteen, all of whom aro resi

William Henry .Riokard was
born in England in 1846 and liv
ed there until ho was twonty
years old. tie nau entered upon
the study of medicine but without
graduating, came to Honolulu in
the ship R. W. Wood, arriving

then living in ilawaibao. To
gethor'tboy went to the old Sail
or's Homo on Merchant street,
kept at that timo by Mr. and Mrs.
Thos. G. Thrum.
He was first employed by the
Qovernmont as a contractor, en
gineer, and builder of landings in
the district of Kona, this island,
Ho finished this work in 1868, and
for tbreo years following was

Dectased wns thus tho pionoor
sugar grower in this wonderfully
fertile district. He had reverses
at first, but kept peuging away,
and was soon rewarded with suc
cess, others joining with him iu
tho vonturo when they saw tho
fine prospects. In 1878 tbo Hono
kaa Sugar Company was incor-
S orated, and two years later Mr.
riokard assumed tho manage

Deceased was eleotod represen

from the district of Hamakua, and
his renomination was almost in
sisted upon by his fellow
citizeno. Though ho was
obliged to firmly decline
tbo honor from business consider
ations he still continued to take a
leading part in all important ques
tions in his district.
In 1895 W. H. Riokard was ar
rested for taking bo aotivo part in
the revolution. It will bo remora
berod that ho was under sentence
of death for his part. It may,
however, be said of deceased that
hu did the work assigned him with
the closest mouth of any and when

been associated with him. Ho
was honorable to tho lust degree
and showed himself a man at

The Attorney-Oenoral cannot
be held to account by the Court
for his official acts done within

Ibis is tue unanimous opinion

Tho opinion of the Court by
Frear, J., is in briof as follows:
"Tho complainant, A. S. Hum
phiays, and the respondent aro
members.of tho bar. The respon
dent is also ttie Attorney-Gonornl.
" Respondent answored charge
of malpraotise and unprofessional
conduct as a member of tho bar,
setting forth his version oftho
affair and olaiming that ho acted
as Attorney General and in tho
utmost gopd faith and pursued a
course that was proper and con
sistent with his duties as Attorney
General and as an attornoy at

" Much has beeu said in recard
to tho conduot of tho complainant,
especially in connection with his
inspiring of articloa for tbo nows
papers, ms counsel concedes tbat
bo was not luatinod in pursuing
such a cnurso aftor having, gone
through counsol, to the Court and
after tbo Court bad issued an ord
er to show causo.
"Tho complaint was carofully
drawn with a view to showing
mal practice and unprofessional
conduct on tho pait of respondent
as a momber of the bar. But
so far us appears, he actod
throughout as attorney general.
No doubt a member of the bar
may perform acts in some othor
official capaoity or oven in a
private capaoity of such diegraco
ful, immoral or oriminal charac
ter as to show him to be unfit
to continue longor a member of
the profession, and for such con
duct he may bo bold to acoount
by tho court even to the extent
of disbarment. But it is not
contended thut tho respondent in
this caso was guilty of miscon
duct involving moral torpitude,
or, perhaps, any acts of a churac
tor so disgraceful as, if not dona
in his professional capaoity,
would warrant action by the
court against him in his pro
fessional capacity. If counsel
do intoud to go so far as to
make such a contention as that last
meutionod, wo must hold that tho
facts do not boar thorn out. It is
indeed not entirely clear just what
the theory of counsel for com
In the two oharges the conten
tion is mado that respondent acted
solely as Attornoy Goneral and
moreover within his legal powers
''In expressing theBO views wo
do not intond to express approval
of tho Attorney General's conduot.
Neither do wo intond to oxpross
disapproval. All wo can say is
that tbo acts of tho respondent
were the aots of the Attornoy Gen
eral, tbat they are not of such a
uaturo as, when done aside from
his capaoity as an attornoy-at-law,
would justify actiou acainst him
in his professional capacity; that
thfl Attorney Genoral fo a mem
bor of a coordinate department of
the government and tbat this court
baa no jurisdiction in a proceeding
of this kind to pass upon bis acts
as Attorney Goneral,
' It the Attornoy-Gonor.il in
this caso committed an error of
judgment or acted unwisely either
in permitting an employee in his
department to appear for the do
fonco in a criminal case, or in
afterwards imposing a restraint
upon the privato couusol engaged
to conduct the prosecution, he
may be hold to account beforo the
bar of public opinion; and if ho
has shown incapacity for the due
performance of his official duties,
or maladministration in office, he
may bo brought boforo tho Court
of Impeacbmout. But for this
Court to pass upon the moral
quality othis official acts in a pro
