dent of Public Works and tho Inspec

lights, and 800 Incandescent lights fur

NOT WAITINGFOR BECKLEV
Several of tho nwmhers of the Homo
Kute party In the House were seen' to
day relative to tho statement that tho
dilatory tactics of tho past fortnight
bad taken placo as n rcsitlt of tho deci
sion of tho party to nwilt the return of
Deckley and they nil denied tho alle
gation. One of the number said:
"It is perfect foolishness to nssumo
that we are watting for Deckley. So
far as this member Is concerned, I
can simply say that ho Is one member
absent nnd that, whether ho Is hero or
not, he would not make much differ
ence one way or tho other.
"As you know, he did not gain any
direct results In San Francisco al
though he did see the President and I
may add. Deckley did not go with the
intention of gaining nny results in San
Francisco. If he Is to bring no re
sults, why then should we bo waiting
for him. There Is to be no relief Just
yet. Delegate Wilcox Is looking out
for that part of tho matter.
"I might say that there Is another
indication which leads me to believe,
that tho Houso Is not waiting for
Deckley. If you remember, the Pub
lic Health Committee of which Deck
ley Is tho chairman, rendered Its re
port on Items In the Appropriation bill,
about a fortnight ago. In this report
wero contained recommendations di
rectly opposed to Deckley's views. If
a wait had been decided on, this re
port would never have been presented
until tho return of the member from
"You ask me why tho delay in action
and I tell you frankly, I do not know.
Since several days ago, there has been
a very apparent coolness of a certain
faction of tho party against the other
and this may account for the dilatory
tactics, tho two sides refusing to come
together on any measure,"

DICKCY IIA8 NO COMPACT.
Tho Adcrtlser In tho course of its
story on Edgar Caypless' candidacy
for the third judgeship makes tho
statement that the hill to create, a
third Judge was Intro luced by Repre
sentative Dickey. The statement Is
also made that Representative Dickey
mado an effort to secure tho position
and the appointment for his son Lylo,
now second District Magistrate.
Speaking of tho matter this morn
ing. Representative Dickey said:
"These statements are all wrong. In
tho first place, I did not Introduce tho
measure nor did I know anything of It
till It was Introduced by Representa
tlve Robertson. I did absolutely noth
ing to secure tho prospective Judge
ship for my son Lylo. I refrained from
nny activity In this lino for the simple
though very good reason that Llo
Dickey Is my son. I did not work far
tho pastago of tho bill except to glvo

house by n good majority which clear
ly demonstrated that theie was no
question of candidates influencing tho
minds of members. I am not In the

Out of a total membership of seventy-six,
forty-four members of the Ha
waiian Bar Association were present
and voting upon the following resolu
tion, presented by A. (I. M. Robertson
at tho annual meeting held this morn
ing. Tho vote upon the resolution
stood 37 for and 7 against. The resolu
tion follows nnd Is self-explanatory:
Whereas, the Hon. A. S. Humphreys,
First Judge of the Cltciilt Coin: of the
First Circuit Court of tho Tenltory of
Hawaii has continued since his ap
pointment to publish and cor.tiol n
partisan newspaper, and hu.- i....en and
continues to take nn arth i art nnd
leadership in bitter political contro
versies In this Territory, i'iid.
Whereas, tho said Hon. A. S. Humph
res a has used hlB position on tho bend)
for his own personal an political ends,
Whereas, the said lion. A. S.
Humphreys has been niro,aiit und in
sulting In his conduct toward menib.'lii
of the bar, and has abused his power
oer attorneys nnil others appearing
before his court; and
Whereas, tho couao of con lue; of
said Hon. A. S. Humphreys since his
appointment to the bench, lias destroy
ed the confidence of the bar, In hit ad
ministration of Justice;
Be it resolved. That the liar Ahko
elation of tho Hawaiian Islands deems
It absolutely necessary in the Interests
of the administration of Jmtl.u lu tills
Territory that Bald A. S. Humphrey,!
be removed from the office of judgo;
Be it resolved, That a commltteo ot
five members of the Association b
appointed to formulate charges 'nsaln it
tho said A. S. Humphreys, and to tuk
depositions nnd statements of thu
members of this Association und oth
ers of and concerning the conduct and
acts of tho said A. S. Humphreys, and
that said charges and depositions when
so prepared bo presented to tin 1'resl
dent and Attorney Genernl of tho
United States by a member or mem
bets of this bar to bn appointed by
said committee of five and that all ex
penses of procuring said evidence and
picscntlng tho Mine be paid by this
Association; and that said member or
members shall present the wicl chaws
In the namo of and by tho iiuthorlty of
this Association and shall respectfully
urge ho removal of tlio s.iM Hon. A.
S. Humphreys fiom tho ptlc of judge.
F. M. Hatch of the firm of Hatch &
Sllllman offered the following as a sub
stitute icsolutlon, which was defeated
by practically tho Bamo voto that car
ried tho Robertson resolution:
Resolved, That the lt)r Association
of the Hawaiian Islands deprecates t'.m
attitude of Hon. A. S. Humphreys to
wards tho attorneys of his court as an
Infringement of tho rlgnt of cveiy
lawyer to, practice law fearlessly and
Independently In the Inteiesta of hlj
Tho meeting of the Bar Association
was called at 9:30 a. m. nnd the busi
ness of discussing and passing tho
nboo resolution consumed the entire
foienoon and the nf'ernoon until 1
o'clock. Tho resolution was introduced
h A. G. M. Itobcrtson, ns soon as
tho formal matters of electing olllcers
for the ensuing year had been conclud
ed. Before introducing It, thu ques
tion of going Into cxerutlvo session
was raised, but no one favored closed
Tho discussion of tho matter was
staited by W. O. Smith who seconded
tho resolution. He tahl he did It with
regret nnd that In supporting the reso
lutlon ngalnBt Judge Humphreys, ho
found it a painful thing to do. Ho
considered that tho great fault of
Judge Humphreys had been his abuse
T, MiCants Stewart opposed tho
resolution. Ho said, the Bar Associa
tion had better go Blow, not from fear,
but because. It might make matters
very much worso thun they nre. "He
member what I say," said Mr. Stewart,
"you will not remoe a Judgo unless
you substantiate a charge of n crime
or misdemeanor ngalnst him. You ran
not do this in the present caso nnd your
action in adopting this resolution will
bo only to add fuel to the strife and ill
usion that already exists in the com
munliy. Thero Is a conservative ele
ment lu this community which will not
stand for the wiping out ot tho Bar
Association or the destruction of Judge
Humphreys. The Republican organi
zation will not stand for this icsolu
tlon, Wo do not want to add to tho
dissensions that already exist. "What
wo need Is Bomo master spirit of peace
rather than a mnvo llko this which
Initiates war. Thero will bo no ro
moval gentlemen, unless charges of
giaver Import than these are brought
F. M. Hatch In submitting his sub
stitute for tho resolution by Robertson
went too far or not far enough. .It
went far enough to damage the char
acter of tho Judge but not far enough
to cause nny action to bo tnken. "1
will sny." sild Mi. Hatch, "that 1 be
lieve Judge Humphreys has made many
mistakes, but I nm not ready to admit
that he has been em nipt and I do not
think I should be naked to voto upon
such n proposition by this Association.
Tho committee should bo appointed
to hear, not to condemn, This Is too
much llko n newppaper fight. I think
the question really had better bo left
there and not dragged Into the Bar
Judgo Wliltln? spoke in opposition
to the resolution, caing that he was
prepared, houcer, to appoint n com
mittee to net as a court of Inqrilry.
Mr. Whltlug said his Information con
sisted largely of newspaper assertions
and that he was not ready to found n
judgment upon such giounds.
The frenzy Hint possessed the Bar
Association against Judge Humphreys,
exposed its nature nnd chnincter from
this step onward. Kinney, with his
hot,, bull dog feioclty, disclaimed nil
animus In the matter of n personal na
ture nnd said almost ns much against
Hatch for aduirntlng conservatism as
he had for the Judge. Ho said to talk
about an lnestlgntlon nnd a hearing
would be only to belittle ourselves.
I-ct us act llko men and not adjourn
until we havn condemned this Judge.
Wo nre thu only power to confront this
Judge who terrorizes the ovcrngo citi
zen, with tho razor of his office. We
must take Judge Humphreys off the
bench and the razor out of his hands.
When he Is off tho bench, nny of us
can handle dim. tfefus set our seal of
condemnation upon him like men. Kin
ney then went Into detail, accusing
Judge Humphreys of using his posi
tion to further his own pprsonnl and
political ends; of Insolence and Impu
dence, and various other faults. Hn
said the community had hoped for n
cbnnge. "We hao been hoping ho
could be Induced to withdraw, that
would be a path of peace, ns suggested
by Mi. Stewart."
Kinney's assault was only exceeded
In gleeful expression of contempt, by
the bombastic onslaught of George A.
DaIs. Davis said that Judgo Humph
reys would hau u chance to defend
himself before tho tribunal of the
President of tho United States. Davis
laid great sticss up the wounds and
stripes that had been received by mem
bers of the bar when In court before
Judge Humphreys. "Can you not every
cino recall Instances ulicro he bus
wounded our feelings nnd degraded
your manhood? Do you not see, how.
blinded by passion, ho did not refuse to
take Jurisdiction in that case tho other
day?" Davis said Humphreys had
foully dlsgrared the position of Judge
of the First Circuit Court.
Judgo Stanley played upon another
string of the harp of discord. Hu said
ho had ever received from Judge
Humphreys the utmost courtesy but
could not find langungo forcible enough
to express his disapproval of the
Judge's participation in politics. Ho
nlso was of tho opinion that thero could
lie no excuse offered for tho granting
of licenses In the District Court and
no excuse for the appointment of Ball
Judgo Sllllman called tho attention
of tho Association to tho fact that there
Is a right way nnd a wrong way of do
ing things. Ho pointed out that most
of the stuff in tho resolution was n con
densation of charges that had appeared
In the Advertiser. Ho said also
and while he said It, looked L. A.
Thurston In the fare, that Judge
Humphreys had been nccused In the
editorial columns of tho Advertiser of
drawing up tho bill to reorganize the
Hawaiian judiciary. Sllllman branded
this as falso, nnd added, there may be
other things that arc fulse. "It Is said
that tho Judge Is arbitrary," Bald Sllll
man, "no doubt ho Is arbitrary. He Is
charged with owning stock In n news
paper; nn doubt he does. It Ib said
this paper Is bitter politically; no
doubt it Is. It Is charged herb that the
Judgo actively directs this paper's
policy; we don't know. Wo must ad
mit thero Is room for nn Investiga
tion." Judge Sllllman favored sending n re
quest to tho Attorney General of tho
United States to send a special agent
hero to look Into tho whole subject.
"Don't condemn In advance," ho said,
Mr. Sllllman was the first attorney to
refer to tho rocord of Jpdgo Humph
reys during tho past year In the splen
did line of decisions he had made und
closed his speech with tho assertion
that "Indiscretion" was tho namo of
tho only erlnio that hnd been dono by
Thurston took tho floor to sny that
ho bad no apologies to inal.o for tho
course the Advertiser had followed
with refcreuco to Judgo Ilumphrejs.
He said ho was at first opposed to
Judge Humphreys appointment on the
ground that his talents wero those of
an advocate not of n Jddgo.
Of tho present situation ho snld:
"There are two ways of treating a can
cer, one by cutting It out, tho other
by applying n sour milk poultice."
J. T. Do Bolt took courage t this
stylo of talk and got the floor. He
said tho lives, property nnd liberties
of the people of this Island arc In
jeopardy so long as U1I3 Judge remains
on the bench. Ho urged eery lawyer
present to bo bold and vote for the
resolution, thereby making of himself
a protector of tho people, cwpcilally th
Peterson said: "It I thought this
man could deal out Justice Impartially,
I would not bo so opposed to him."
Cecil Brown had been a believer In
Judge Ilumphrejs until after tho open
ing of tho Legislature.
J. A. Magoon nnd F. E. Thompson
spoke In opposition to the resolution.
Tho committee appointed by Presi
dent A. S. Hartwell, to investigate the
matter ord prepare tho loport consists
of Cecil Brown. Geo. A. Davis, Iirrln
Andrews, J. T. Dc Dolt and W. L.
