If there Is a shortage of lumber the
Kovernmcnt might well take over what
lumber Is being used for the erection of
shiieks outside Chinatown.
The ninrble heart with which Mr,
Dole's friends turn down Minister
Cooper's work as President of the
Hoard of Health tells the story of the
criticism offered by the self-styled In
dependent press. What Is the cause
of the personal spite of the govern
ment organs towards Mr. Cooper?
The meeting of medical men this
evening will be onn of the most import
nut events In the consideration of the
plague situation. In a crisis llko the
present the people turn to tho physi
cians for recommendutlons as to the
best line of action. The medical frater
nity does not view Its responsibility
with indifference and It Is reasonable
to believe that there will bo no uncer
tain tone In the conclusions readied.
From the silence of the independent
government controled press regarding
tho resignation of Chief Justice Jiuld.
It might be supposed that the olilcial
circle has not had time to deliberate on
the Important questions that nect'ssar
ly arise. Tho public well knows (hat
the silence is enforced by mandates of
the political aspirants hopeful of mak
ing a deal in connection with the new

This 'independent press" proposition
Is worthy a position among the local
Jokes published in London Punch.
As was forecast by yesterday's Hul-
letiu. Dr. Wood is the man to whom
the community naturally turns as the
executive leader of the Hoard of
Health. The aggressive work of the
Hoard will not suffer by a change of
this character. Dr. Wood as a member
having been In close touch with the de
tails of the situation from the llrst.

in a maimer that will enable conduct

"Of coiu-ho Mr. Ilartwell did not
make .the remark," Is the profound
manner in which the organ of the
Happy Family deals with 1'nollirlal
Delegato llartwoll's unfortunate state
ment that Hawaii Is not annexed.
Forthwith the paper controled by the
local government proceeds to reiterate
the statement made by Mr. Ilartwell
that Congress through the Nowlands
Resolution extended only portions of
the American coistituilou to Hawaii.
This local response Is merely it reitera
tion of the opposition which tho local
olilcial faction has constantly offered
to tho interpretation of tho Nowlands
net made by broad minded and friend
ly Americans. Very likely the Adver
tiser knows nioie about what was said
than did those present at the dinner.
Ah usual It Is ready to ciltlcltje tho mci
ot the J'nlted States Congress who are
lighting Hawaii's battle on the lines
that the constitution Jn every detail is
Hawull's by right and was ho de
dared by the N'owlands resolution.
cmr.P jusTicn ,ium,.
Tho resignation of A. F. Judd, Chief I
Justice of the Supremo Court of Ha
waii, marks tho close ot an. olilcial
career that has been n very potent fac
tor In tho progress of theso Islands.
For over twenty-flvo years Mr. Judd
has held Important positions in tho
legal department of tho government
and during that term of service has
bcon tho country develop from a weak
and often threatened autonomy to a
well organized territory whoso right
to on equality, with the advanced terri
torial position granted possessions of
the L'nlted States Is not open to ques
tion. A son of the man who played n very
Important If not controllng part In es
tablishing organized government In
the Islands, educated In a leading
American university, Mr, Judd was to
tile manor born nnd reared. It must
ever bo n pleasant thought to him and
those who follow him that ho has prnc-
tlcally carried to Its completion tho
work which tho father began nnd now
finds Its fulfillment In tho absorption
of the Islands by the country on whoso
principles our legal system was estab
lished. Mr. Judd hns stood steadfastly by
his post through it chain of events that
have tested the full capacity of tho
men In whoso hands rested the liberty
of tho people. Criticism has been
sharp, men hnve disagreed, as they nre
prone to ih, but at no time during his
long publli' career has the personal In
tegrity or Sjonesty of purpose of Chief
Justice Judd been questioned.
Mr. Judd 's home llfo Is Ideal. As a
man of alfalrs he is universally re
spected. In the life ot tho church ho
has been an ever aggressive motive
power. The blessings ot life have been
ganted to him nnd his most estimable
wife with a liberal hnnd and not the
least of these Is a family of sons and
daughters who are representative of
the highest type ot Hawaiian-Ameri
can manhood and womanhood. In lay
ing aside the arduous and vexatious
labors of public life. Chief Justice Judd
Is rather to be envied than condoned.
Ill health has rnused his withdrawal
from olilelnl life, but he has a good
number of active years yet before him
and any man acquainted with Mr.
Judd knows that these will not be
years of Inactivity or of Indifference
toward the welfare of the community
In which lie has so long Mold a position
of honor and respect.
Till: PIJTUItU CIIH-PMUSTIC!:.
Now that the resignation of Chief
Justice Judd has been dually made
public, the onestlon arises, why has tho
fact been so long withheld from the
public? Whether the letter of icslgna
tiou was In Hie hands of local authori
ties previous to or at the time of the
Bulletin's statement seveial weeks ago
.s neither hero nor there, but we doubt
If any olilcial Is prepared to deny that
the decision of Mr. Judd to resign was
known to them at that time.
Was the controllng lullucnce during
these days of silence, the fact that Mr.
Dole, having foregone aspirations for
the coveiuorshln. Is being played by
his small circle of political friends as
a candidate for the Chief Justice of the
Territory. This conclusion Is easily
drawn from the known movements of
Delegate Ilartwell anil his friend Smith
lie this as It may, we are confident
President McKlnloy will not use snap
Judgment nor listen only to one side of
the controversy In leaching a final de
clslon. Mr. Dole has very wisely re
felled the question to tho President
and It Is not impossible, In view of the
probable delay in the enactment of tho
territorial bill and the Immediate lie
cesslty of relieving the chaotic condl
dons of the eouit, that the President
will authorize Mr. Dole to make an ap
pointment which shall hold until the
time of final reoiganlzatlou.
Whatever the decision of Washing
ton authorities, there Is but one mini
to whom .Mr. Dole should look to fill
this important position. .Mr. Dole took
Henry K. Cooper from the bench to
fill a vacancy In the Cabinet caused by
the appointment of .Mr, Hatch ns Ha
waiian .Minister to Washington. .Mr.
Cooper's pieforenco was for tho bench
and his career in that capacity was
such as to inspire public confidence In
his ability and assure steady advance
ment to the Supreme Ilench In ovent of
a vacancy ailslng. It was only after
strong pressuio froju those In control
that Mr. Cooper rellqulshed his Judi
cial position to assume the duties
of .Minister of Foreign Affairs, lie was
regarded n tho only available man and
in answer to that plea accepted the
As a member of .Mr. Dole's Cabinet
Mr, Cooper lias dono his work faith
fully, lie has been loyal to his chief
and loyal to tho lilchest principles of
Anicrlciui citizenship. Though subject
to covert attacks on account, of his
strict adherence to theso principles, he
lias never been found weak kneed nor
mis ilvrcu antagonism caused him to
swerve from the path o. ,t
Mr. Cooper has proved his abliw, "3
n Jurist, nnd has proved hla Indepen-1
.lent and loval American enaracw, u
consideration that should not bo slight
ed at thlH period when Hawaii Is cnter
lngupona broad American career. If tho
Chief JiiBtlco Is to bo a citizen of Ha
waii, If tho President leaves tho ap
pointment of Mr. Jiidd's Biicccssor to
Mr. Dole, there Is but ono man for the
locul Chief Executive to call to tho po

WAR IN LIFE INSURANCE
York, Dec. 28,-The Herald
There Is a stroni; possibility of war
oetvveen tho great life Insurance com
panies with the beginning of tho new
vi'iir. "Tho rebate coninact." which ex
isted between nnd wlhch served to bind
them together In a community ot In
tercbt has terminated and hns bee
followed by tho abrogation of the
aureement between the New York
Life and the Kmtltablo Mfo under
which the same agents acted for hot!
companies within certain territory.
Tho Knultnbln took tho llrst step In

latloiis by with-
the sundering of re
drawing from "the
The other companies vveie obliged to
follow Its example. The Knnltnlilc
gave as ono of the rensons for break
ing tho rebate understanding that
certain Western States might look
upon It In tnc light ot a trust and that
it did not wish to Incur the hostility
of the authorities.
The New York Llfo soon afterward
received notlco from tho Equitable that
ono of tlm Kqultiiblc's agents, who had
been acting nlso for the New York Life
In a foreign country would do so no
longer. The New York Life thereupon
decided to put an end to tho second j
agreement and has so Informed the j
John McCall, president of the New
York Life, dictated the following
statement In regaid to the matter last
"The rebate compact which existed
between all the companies was prac
tically rendered Inoperative by the
withdrawal of tho Kipntnlile a short
uino ago. Due or tlio reasons given
was that any compact between com
panies might be construed as a viol
Hon of the laws of some States. A few
weeks ago one of the foreign mana
gers of tho Hiptltable Informed our
agency department that an agreement
as to tho employment of agents enter
ed Into several years ago was terminat
ed as far as his territory was con
cerned. "On receipt of this last notice we
thought the tlmo had arrived to ter
minate tho remainder of the agree
ment and start the new year without
a compact of any kind In force.
"Thero Is no hostility on our part
toward tho Kqultuhlc. They were hon

business and they aro freo to do us

In r.pite of Mr. McCnll'n pacific atti

ance men that war may bo precipitated
between the (ompauleii at any time.
