Mr. llow Mi's resignation comes as a
surprise. The people thought he had a
life tenure on the Job. lie It said to
Mr. Howell's credit, howcter, that ha
has always been a hard worker, lilt
most serious falling was apparent In
ability to comprehend tho duties of an
rxecutlve officer. No-one questions Mr.
Howell's honesty but he has not proved
a success In handling men.
Had the liar Association endorsed
the proposed plan to reorganize the Ju
diciary It Is safo to say the Advertiser
would nave declared that Humphreys
had been defeated in his schemes.
Whatever happens in tl-e Judicial field
the Organ always discovers that
Humphreys Is at the bottom of It. Jus
tice Is the principal thing Humphreys
has been responsible for In bis con
nection with tho court. The only peo
ple worrying about It seem to be the
powers behind the Advertiser

the bribery charges against the I -or It.
tature has dcmonstraled that he knows

If any exists have the confidence of the

not fulfill the full duty of Jurors the
people will be ery much surprised.
In appointing MarsMn Campbell it
Assistant Superintendent of Public
Works, Superintendent lloyd 1ms se
lected a man In whose executive ability
nnd technical knowledge the people
have learned .to place full confidence.
At Kond Supervisor Mr. Campbell hat
shown himself to be energetic nnd ca
pable of accomplishing good tesulta
when handicapped by a shortago of
funds. He has the education and ex
perience' necessary to fill the position
to which ho has been called and It It
safe to say that as on executive officer
he will not follow the example of hit
predecessor In taking his own time to
do work that enn be done by dollar-n-day
laborer. Superintendent IJoyd
has willed to his usslstaiua men who
hae some snap. As the Superinten
dent himself has a rocortl for keeping
up to ilie mark, there Is every reason tn
believe that the Public Works depart
ment will be conducted In a manner to
satisfy tho most critical.
"The close of my first three months
In offlce marks the beg'nnlng of an
other effort to stamp out thi sale a'
liquor In Cumberland county." This
remark of the Parson Sheriff IVnrsou
elected to enforce the Maine prohibi

hibition party finds l'.xlf unable to
stamp out the liquor traltlc though

courts nn the term "intoxicating

Intoxicants but the com t will not up
hold him, henca the 3alqcu lenialns

lance of deputies can be evaded. Tho
sheriff maintains, hownvor, that nut a

by pocket peddlers and In kitchen bar
rooms. At tho Jail over which hJ pre
sides, Pearson now has only 98 Inmates
In plaro of 141 when ho assume! otllcc.
As most of the Jail lnrn.it i J are com

drunkenness as well ns open liquor
selling Is at a low-elih. .
Two days after the Sheriff's (list
quarterly-statement w.s made, 'tele
grams to tho Stato pAprih stated that
the liquor deputies hi I gone on n raid
nnd returned with I. full ilray loi.d of
liquors of all kinds 'nhli'li had bcin
captured from ono h.'I- i'i of the city.
And It Is snfo to s.tv that this condi

Everything Is now completed for tho
annual tennis tournament of the Ha
waiian Tennis Association, which will
commence next Wednesday. Men's
singles nnd doubles, ladles' "singles,
ladles' doubles, and mixed doublet,
will be played. Handsome cups have
been offered for the winners and th
rivalry Is already quite keen.
Honolulu has a host of racket wield
crt of more than average ability, and
good exciting sport Is nlwnys furnished
by the tournaments.
Frank Atherton will be called upon
to defend his title of champion this
year. Who the challenger will be Is
bard to say. Charley Elston has played
Atherton In tha final match for the last
two years. The first time, Elston won
out. but last year Atherton beat hlra
three straight sets. Elston, however,
showed a woeful lack of practice at the
time. This year he has- practiced quite
faithfully and will give Atherton the
match of his lite If they happen to
meet In the finals.
Brock and Adams are the champion
for men's doubles for the past year.
There are two teams which will tin
doubtedly give them n hnrd rub. Last
year Elston and Ross won the invita
tion tournament given by the Pacific
Tennis Club, defeating Urack and
Adams two out of three sets, and
Cooke and Atherton, three out of fivd
lets. The real match will lie between
Eltton nnd Ross nnd Cooke am) Adams.
The winners of this match ought to
capture the championship. -f 5
Mrs. Charles Elston win undoubtedly
uphold her right to the championship
this year. Mrs. Elston.plays n smash

tiresome. If Mrs. John Watcrhouse en

A NEW DRINK.

drink. There nic summer drinks and
winter drinks. Upon going down to.tlio

drinking a beautiful long green drink
