Scurrilous Attack Upon Him Fails Flat-
Prompted by Personal Spite and
Jealousy-What the People Say
--Mr. Humphrey s' Career
Speaks for Itself.
A Bulletin reporter sought Mr.
Humphreys this morning for the pur
pose of interviewing him In regard tn
tho sensational article sent from 'I tic
son, Arizona, nnd published In tho SWn
Francisco Call of tho 12th Inst.
Tho nrtlclo Is as follows:
Tucson, Arizona, April 11. Abiauim
S. Humphreys of Honolulu, Hawaii,
formerly n resident of Ailzona, a native
of Mississippi, Is n candidate for ap
pointment on tho Supreme llcnch of
Hawaii. Humphreys left Ailzona about
Ave yeais ago nnd went direct to Hono
lulu. Ho married an heiress, nnd It is
said ho has gained distinction In his
profcbslon. His candidacy for Judge
ship, announced here yesterday, can ,nl
mucu aciimouious comment on account
of the unfortuuntu reputation ho galti'M
for h.iiisclf while practicing law nt
Phoenix and Floience. i
W. F. Cooper, Dlstilct Attorney of
Pima county, has sent serious charctM !
against Humphreys to Washington, I
nmong others that ho embezzled largo
sums of insuinuce money trom two1
widows, paid by the Ancient Order of
rnltcd Workmen on account of death
of their husbands. This was at Flor
ence, where, when ho left, ho stated
ho was going to Prescott and would
return In n few days, but went right
through to Honolulu, where ho has
since been. A number of creditor i lit
Floienro mourned his loss. The
charges also allege that Humphreys
has been placed under arrest nt Phuo
nix on n charge of complicity in pio
curlng u criminal operation on a wo
man named White. A mob thicateued
summnry punishment, but ho escaped.
Tho next day he got Into n street shoot
ing scrapo with P. Minor over the mut
ter" nnd several Bhots wero exchanged.
At Florence, It is alleged, Humph
reys got Into several disgraceful fights,
in ono of which he attacked an old
man named Gilbert with n kulfe, cut
ting him badly.
ThosomoBt Intimately acquainted with
Humphreys state ho was betimes men
tally unoalanced, which accounted foe
his peculiar nnd erratic conduct. Ills
aspirations to the Supremo Ilench have
caused many to take active interest In
the matter here.
Mr. Humphreys was found In his
(iincn busily engaged with a large
batch of mall, lie made the following
statement In regard to the article
which was taken down by the reporter
nt his dictation:
"As soon as I learned that there was
an nrtlclo In the Call attacking mo 1
procured n copy of tho paper and nfter
reading tho charges sent them to the
Advertiser nnd requested that they bo
published In full. In u few minutes
thereafter n reporter from tho Adver
tiser called nt my ofllco and 1 submit
ted to nn Interview which was correctly
reported In this morning's paper. Tho
man Will F. Cooper who sent tho tele
gram to tho San Francisco Call has
been n bitter personal and pollttc.il
enemy of mine for the past seven yeuro
and has often declared that ho would
leave no stono unturned to Injure me.
His statement that I was whllo living
In Arlzonn nn Insane man Is quite
suindcnt to dam every charge which
he mnkes against me.
As Deputy Attorney Gencrul.
I had been in the Territory only n
few months when I was appointed
Deputy Attorney General of tho Ter
ritory and served out my term, making
u record In that ofllco of which 1 have
no reason to ho ashamed. Thereafter
I was endorsed and I want to say at
this time I was only 22 years of age
by tho great majority of the liar of
Arizona, by newspapers, business men,
bankers, tho Territorial nnd Count)
oflicials, for tho position of Associate
.lustico of tho Supremo Court of Ari
zona. My failure to sccuio that posi
tion was attributed to my youth and
nothing else. About thrco months be
fore, leaving tho Territory I was n can
didate for District Attorney. There
wero two other candidates In the Held
besides myself. The campaign was nn
exciting one, nnd whllo I was defeated
yet tho defent was n practical vindica
tion of my career In tho Territory.
Every chargo which political antago
nism, personal enmity nnd individual
malice could Imnglno wns made against
me. I fought them nil out on the
stump, nnd was beaten by only seven
In splto of tho charges which tills
man Cooper now makes against mo and
which cannot ho bolstered up by ono
scintilla of proof, I nm Indorsed for I ho
position of Associate. Justice, of tho
Supremo Court of Hawaii by very many
of the lending lawyers, newspapers nnd
bankers of Arlzonn, and Jn addition 'to
these- Indorsements from tho commun
ity In which I spent four years of ray
life, I havo Indorsements from 'tie town
nnd Stnto In which I was born nnd
reared, of which any man mlcht well
feel pioud, mid many of thcao Indorse
ments havo been forwarded to Wash
ington In tho taco of nnd with know
ledge of tho Call article uttaukluj inc.
A gentleman who occupied tho po-jltlon
of Attorney Geneial In Arizona during
the time 1 nm supposed to hue lived
my Melons and criminal career In that
Territory is now ono of tlio Icudcia of
tho San Francisco Uar and represents
Senator Don Cameron In his ctenslu
Interests In tho Southwest. Directly
upon reading tlio Call article ho dictat
ed and sent the following letter to
George 1). Gear:
'Geoi(v'j I). Gear, Palace Hotel, San
"Dear bir: I havo lead tho account
which was published In tho Sun Fran
cisco Call containing tho huIhImico of
certain charges made ugaiuut Mi.
Aoimn S. Iliimphieyu of Honolulu
which are alleged to havo been illcd
with the Attorney General of the Unit
ed States by W. F. Cooper, tho present
Dlstilct Attorney of Pima comity, Arl
7on:i, and deslio to Bay to you that in
my opiniou tho charges are utterly
without foundation. During ull the
time lefeircd to In Bald chanics I was
n resident of Arizona and was actively
engaged In tlio pinctlco of lny In tho
county In which .Mr. Humphreys re
sided. During two years of that time
i was tno Attorney General of tlio Ter
ritory, and I was rartlcularly friendly
nnd Intimnte with tho Dlstilct Attorney
or ino county in which .Mr. Humphreys
uveti and I nm quite certain that If Mr.
Humphicys had been guilty of any Im
proper practices I would havo heard
something about them. On tho con
trary I havo never beforo heard any
pei son other than Mr. Cooper ques
tion Mr. Humphreys' honesty nnd In
tegilty. When I wns In Arizona about
six months ago Mr. Cooper tried to
tell mo something about tho alleged
facts which aro contained In liU
charges, but ho exhibited nnd candidly
oxnresscd so much vlndlctlvenj.ss to
wn ih Mr. Humphreys that I refused
to hear him complete his statement.
Mr. Cooper then freely confessed to me
that ho harbored tho bitterest feelings
of rovengo towards Mr. Humphreys ind
that ho would avail himself of tho
first opportunity that presented to in
dict upon Mr. Humphreys nil tho In
Jury within his power. My person.il
ucqualntancc with Mr. Humphreys cov
ers n period or tiuout ten years laat
past. During tho four yiars ho was In
Arizona I frequently had occasion to
nssoclate him with mo In tho trial of
many cases, and 1 novcr knew him to
entertain or express a single thought
which wns not creditable to his ranu
hood and honorable In tho highest de
gree. His career hi Arizona marks
him ns ii man of wonderful moral cour
ago and the greatcct stability of char
acter. Ho'camo there ns a mero boy
about 21 years of age. Within ono yeir
nfter his arrival ho was urged for ap
pointment of Associate Justice of tho
Supremo Court of Arizona by tho offi
cial members of the then cxlstlug Re
publican Administration of the Terrl
toiy. At that early ago ho possessed
such accurate knowledge of legal
principles that tho oldest practitioners
were deeply Impressed by his learning
and rnre ability. Many of them gave
their support to his candidacy to that
high position. Ho had been gently
reared In Mississippi und whnt little
trouble he had In Arizona nroso from
tho fact that ho was deeply Imbued
with those notions of chivalry and tnnt
flno sense of honor which was some
times sllghtllngly referred to by per
sons who nro controlled by moro prac
tical commercial Instincts as "South
ern." Whenever Mr. Humphreys found
that his associates wero dishonorable
or dishonest ho denounced their action
and refused to longer co-opernto with
(hem. Being generous to n fault and of
a conlldlng disposition, his Inexperi
ence and youth brought to him finan
cial dlbahter. After losing his law li
brary, which was tho best ever brought
to tho Territory, ho located In tho
town of Florence and there Mr.
Humphreys lived for moro than two
years. Ho continued to maintain tho
nn ma courteous demeanor towards
every person with whom ho enmo In
contact but to boldly nnd vigorously
nttack nil public nnd prlvnto wrong,
and In that small frontier community
ho never failed to malntuln tho high

est principles of honor and to put them
Into operation In his business deal
ings. If ever n man's diameter was
tried lu tho fires of adversity under
i-o most desperate circutnstnnces that
of A. S. Humphreys was during tho
period of Ins llfo which wns spent In
Florence, Arizona, and whatever his
faults may bo I speak from knowledge
of tho facts when 1 say that ho deserves
tho support and commendation of all
rlgnt-thlnklng men for the noble bat
tle ho theie made against over
whelming odds In the caiibe of Justice
and right. Ho proved himself to bo
possessed of tho best attributes which
go to make up that noblest work of
ioii, an holiest ninii nnd ono without
fear. It Is ti no thnt when Mr. Humph
reys left Arlona ho was In debt but it
Is equally ti ie and Is within my own
knowledge that nfter living In Hono
lulu ho paid off every dollar he owod
In Arizona, whllo working on n salaiy
In it lftw olllce. It Is not true that ho
murrled n v.otnan of wealth or ac
quired nny wealth through his wife,
but It is true that by his own exer
tions solely and by his Isrcn intelli
gence ho has already gained a compe
tency In the Hawaiian Islands nnd It Is
also true that his solo itason for
seeking the position of Associate Jus
tice of the Supieino Court of the Ha
waiian Islands Is his laudable amoi
tlon to make a reputation as u learned
and upright Judge. That ho will suc

own hopes If appointed Is my llrmest

Barclay llenlcy'H Letter.
The following letter was sent to
Picsldent Mc.vlnlcy by tho Honorable
Harclay Henley, it distinguished law
yer of San Francisco and it former
member of Congress from California,
after ho had read tho article in the
Cull nttneklug me. The letter was
written without my request or know
ledge: Snn Francisco, Cal., April 13, 1000.
To William McKlnley, Picsldent.
Sir: 1 address you to place upon
record certain views that I havo re
specting the rnndldncy of Mr. Abrnm S.
Iluinpnreys for a Judicial appointment
at your hands In the Sandwich Islands.
I havo known this gentleman lrtl
mately for n number of years when ho
wns it prom.ncut practitioner at tho
bar In Arlzonn Territory, whero my
practice has carried me from tlmo to
tlmo for somo years past. During this
tlmo 1 hav Been a good deal oi Mr,
Humphreys lmvo obseived his lognl
performances havo been associated
with him in one case of great Import
ance, have read his briefs, discussed
legal questions with him, havo noted
his demeanor and general course of
conduct both In and outside of the
court room and havo i.ms been enabled
to familiarize myself thoioughly with
nls character as u man nnd his attain
ments as u lawyer. 1 may further add
that I know n number of highly intelli
gent persons who nre well acquainted
with tho career of Mr. Humphreys in
Mississippi whero ho was born nud
reared; from nil of which you will In
ter that If I am not now qunliflcu to
pass upon his fitness for this position
It must be owing to a lack of petcepllvo
faculties In myself. In mo light tnen
of ull thefeo sources of Information,
confirming, ns thoy do, to tho full, by
own convictions founded upon absolute
personal knowledge, 1 desire to t.uy
something about this gciKiemnn.
First, by common repute ho stands ns
..ie peer of the leaders of the Uar lu
..onoliilu. Without nny hesitancy or
reserve I declare my belief to be that
ho Is in every wuy lit to (111 tho Judicial
post to which ho aspires.
His legal Intuitions I have found to
be keen nnd true his habits aro mark
ed by Industry nnd temperance; tho
former keeping him abreast of the most
advanced thoughts of the forensic
world whllo his mental equipment is
such that If It bo tested on the bench,
. nm quite confident tnnt ho will be
found to possess whnt a distinguished
writer, with somo felicity ot phrase has
called tho "Judicial poise. '
Should you appoint tills man ou
would never regret It, and tho public
service would bo tho gainer by It. He
fore concluding I beg to add that Mr.
Humphreys Is n man of strong convic
tions of duty which havo hitherto, un
der nny nnd all circumstances, Impell
ed him to denounce wrongdoing, whnt
over tho hnzarn might he.
In u country like Arloun, n rather
ciuile civilization prevailing, the lepu
tatlun of Borne of tho judlclury In an
tecedent yenrs has oecn marked with
somo ilegico of lufragrauce, these
liialltics of Mr, Humphro)B have
aroused against him antagonisms of
morn or less bitterness. Ot my own
knowlcdgo 1 nm prepared to say that It
Is an Impossibility thnt any honest man
could havo practiced law lu Arbona
while ho was there, without Incurring,
enmities. I lie condition or tunics may
now bo better but for years n man
could not hold a position of nny promi
nence there, and discharge, his duties
ns a citizen and not innno enemies
without forfeiting his seir respect nnd
tho respect of honest people.
Not to speak out may mako ono a
participant In a crime. It was tho habit
of Mr. HuinpliH js, when uuiy caned,
to speak. Pardon the length of this
communication. My object in wilting
Is to make known to you the life, too
ehaiaclcr, the "title Inwnrdncss" of my
friend. I could not do It In fnwer
words. My effort to do tn Is a rceblo
one, but Is honestiy Intended. I know
this mail and for all times to com",
am ready to stanu sponsor for him.

JUDGE A. S. Hl'MPHUEYS.
When Abrnm S. Humphreys left Arl

ninny goods friends behind him who
sincerely legiettcd his determination to
seek fame and fortune lu a new nnd, to
him, an untiled Held, lly friend nnd foe
alike (men like Humphreys makes foes
ns well as friends) he was regarded us
one of the rising legal lights lu tho
Territory, lie had successfully prac
ticed lu tho several courts and his 10
cord Is without u stain. He Is a South
ern Republican nnd In the campaign of
ioUt was nn active participant In tro
Intel ests ot his pnity. As candidate for
District Attorney on the Republican
ttcKot he led a forlorn hope against tho
Democratic stronghold lu Pinal count'.
He did the talking for the ticket, elect
ed a number of his associates and lu
spite of the machine inllticnco mid the
rabid hostility of the only paper there
was In the county he wns defeated by
only a majority of 7. Although beaten
it was In fact a glorious victory, and
hud he remained lu the Territory sub
stantial honors undoubtedly awaited
hint In the future. He, however, elect
ed otherwise nnd when next heard from
was working hard nt his profession In
Honolulu, nnd has since built up n
large and remunerative practice, tils
keen Judicial mind nnd untiring energy
soon forced him to the front nnd today
In social ns well as In business circles
ho Is known ns n substantial nnd pro
gressive niisiness man.
There Is nt present n vacancy on tho
Supreme Ilench of Hawaii nnd ns a ma
jority of tho Honolulu liar are pusmng
him forward for tho place there is
much reason to believe he will be hon
ored by President McKlnley with the
appointment. Such appears to no tho
wish of his Honolulu friends, nud suro
It Is by those here. '1 ho petition ask
ing his appointment had been signed
by a majority of tne Dar of his adopt

being done. As the honor Is n dis
