filing the Decisions
Editor Evening Bulletin: In you
Issuo of yesterday reference was made
to the Edwards decision recently fllel
In the Supreme Court, adding that the
same were ready but held back ever
since August. Ab that statement does
not bear out the facts and befng a
sort of Insinuation on Chief Justice
Frcar who dissented from the majority
of the court, permit me to state that
the majority opinion was not type
written until a little before the open
ing of the September term of court
which lasted three weeks. As the Jtn-
tlccs had to be on the bench during all
that time, It wns Impossible to have the
dissenting opinion In shape until after
the adjournment of court. Further
more, It Is customary to file the major
ity and minority opinions concurrent
ly, and there was no Immediate huriy
for filing the one before the other for
the reason that the prisoner, whose
liberty was involved, wns already giv
en his liberty. Ills being previously
released, was In consideration of t.1J
lngth of time It would take to formu
late both opinions. Thanking you for
this s;ace. II. S,

INDEPENDENCE THAT 18 CHAUS
"To raise Hell generally."
This stems to be the single plank and
only platform on which the Wilcox pat
ty otherwise known as tho Indepen
dents appeal to the voters of these UI
ands. The expression lacks refinement
to the same degree that the course of
the Independent leaders as outlined 'it
their final condition displays good
At Its first convention held In this
city the independent party had a plat
form, rather a weak structure, but nev
ertheless a combination of declarations
which raised the leaders above a statu
of chaos. At the convention held yes
terday, the platform practically went
by the board and candidates wore pit
before the people unpledged to uny
solid principles. In fact thero seems to
be no unity among the candidates ex
cept In the one desire for office which
they hope to secure, without pledge.
The attempt to pledge Mr. Carter und
Mr. Macfurlane meeting with disaster,
the so-called party goes forward nam
ing men, who, If Carter and Macfar
lane are not bound to stand by plat
form plcdgcb, art) certainly uuawcrahle
to nothing but the changeable moods
of their own sweet will. The result lx
that the Independent party reverts to
political chaos with no other purpose
as yet In view than that of makin,;
the Territorial administration uncom
fortable by sticking legislative plnB in
the Goternor's chair. This docs not
appeul to tho business community or
the taxpayer. It means useless legisla
tive delays wh(ch perforco are expen
sive; wasting time over personal wran
gles while the Important questions of
fair taxation, municipal government
und similar laws that make for prog
ress and prosperity languish,
The Bulletin must confess that It
had hoped for a greater degree or com
mon sense ruling the counsel uf this
third party. It would Indeed have dis
played a greater degree of integrity
had It held to principles and pledges
on which It was ready to stand or fall
as a party. Under present conditions
the candidates go before the people
each on his Indlvldaul platform, no
two alike. In other words it Is Robert
Wilcox and those on his ticket In u
free for all scramble. It Is Indepen
dence gone wild, and if the candidates
are successful the taxpayer can whlstlo
and doubtless be cinched for heavier
