The signatures to the popular en

conclusively that the majority of the
Lltlzens and oters jf Hawaii stand
staunchly and feark'sily with the
. On Wednesday. May 29, 1901, the
Honolulu Bar Association made his

thlrty-soen members of the Honolulu
Bar Association plajed the pait of fool.

Act received the sanction of the Chief

the Legislature, would It not be highly

The unanimous election of A. S,
Hartwell ns piesldent of the Bar Atso

tcven members of the Honolulu Bar
have a marked preference for Judges
appointed to the bench before becom

any particular experience In law prac

BAR ASSOCIATION FARCE.
The Bar Association. Including V.
N. Armstrong, the Attorney General,
Deputy Attorney General, Sheriff
Brown and a few more satellites who
must perforce follow the political for
tunes of Dofo and Thurston, has put
Itself on record condemning A. 8.
Humnhrejs appointed by the President
to be Judge of the First Circuit Court.
It now has to look about Itself to And
out where It has landed or Is like!) to

Iho exhibition of a bunch of lawjeis
searching for a charge with which to
unseat a Judge In order to accomplish
political ends, becomes hlghl) amusing,
even here, after the heat of battle has
somewhat cleared. It will become a
huge Joke when the array of mlsrep
lesentatlons reaches Washington and
the matter Is sifted as It will be sifted,
to the bottom and the source of the
The Bar Association a, ting under the
hypnotic Influence of the executive de
partment seems as realy to spend Its
money foolishly as was the Rapid
Transit Company In sending the Hon.
S. M. Ballon to the capital In order to
secure a reversal of the Attorney Gen
eral's ruling on the public land ques
tion. If the treasury were empty and
the Legislature not In session we might
be favored with another draft on soma
dlplontitlc or sundry fund to send the
honorable the Attorney General, who
refuses to assist a Grand Juiy, to the
Federal Department of Justice to show
his paces In a roaring bull argument
and give Attorney General Knox nn
exhibition of how we used to do things
under the Republic. The representa
tive of the Bar Association will have a
good time at the liar's expense. He
will accomplish less Than Ballou did
for the Rapid Transit. He will And
himself viewed In the most ridiculous
ll;ht of any man who ever went to
Washington with an axe to grind.
Having made fools of themselves
once, It Is due misguided members of
the '-r Association to sny that they
will noi do it again. In this respect the
action of the law Arms of Thurston &
Caitcr, Kinney, Ballou & McClanahan,
W. O. Smith and A. S. Hart well it to
he commended. Let the mistakes be
made caily In the game, let the baj
seed of the Republic of Hawaii be
quickly threshed out of the Territorial
political atmosphere so that when the
new American Governor takes his seat
the people oven to the Thurston gang
will icallze beyond the possibility of a
doubt that this Is an American Terri
tory and that, American courts are not
to be 'controlled by Bar Associations
doing the bidding of cantankerous and
vindictive politicians who In thcr ca
pacltj as attornejs aie under sentence
of the court for contempt.
The Bulletin wishes Mr. Thurston
nnd his trallors of the Bar Association
great Joy In their wild endeavors. This
last spasm of their game, steadily a
losing pne since tile Torrltoiy was es
tablished, will merely more completely
accomplish their undoing, and they will
return to their several duties sadder
but much wiser men. When theli rep
lesentatlvo reaches Washington he
will And that representatives of the
Department of Justlro have already
placed on record a careful review of the
method followed by Hawaii's execu
tive ofllceis as well a the courts. The
rcpicsentatlve of Thurston and tho Bar
Association Is likely to discover evi
dence If not aflldavlts that will make
him wonder why he evei wnudcied bo
far from home even ut the Bat's expense.
UP ON TANTALUS RIDGE
Tantaluses fast becoming the place
t3 which people of Honolulu who are
fond of tramping flock bn holidays for
a breath of fresh mountain air as a re
lief from the sweltering atmosphere
of tho, city! On Memorial Day, there
were at least fifty men, women and
children who took to the" trail and
climbed to the baso or even to the top
of the mount that stands as a sentinel
over the two valleys. Turing the mid
dle of tho day yesterday, the tempera
ture was no less than seven degrees
lower, even at the forester a cottage. '
To those who have been used to fid-
.lng, driving; or walking through the
cool nnd"fragrant forest of eucalyptus
trees, the work of clearing off tho gov
ernment land by Japanese for experi
mental purposes seems absolute van
dalism but these may tako comfort In
the fact that the portions of Tantalus
now strewn with the fallen trunks
of thousands of trees and tho smoulder
lng remains of heaps upon lapa of
small branches and leaves, will one day
be clothed In the green of more useful
vegetation. Tantalus will never bo the
same again but perhaps potatoes may

Jared Smith, the director of Hawaii's
Experiment Station, Is very much
pleased with the work being done and,
In two months' time, there Bhould be
somo results. He states that tho Ja
panese, In clearing off tho land, havo
succeeded In getting an average of S3
tons of wood to tle acre. He states
further tha. It is the present Intention
to put 'np b illdlngs on Tantalus In ad

Tho road on Tantalus Is In bad condi
tion Just now. n shower or two render

travel. It Is suggested by those who
go up tho ridge frequentl) that the
turns be widened nnd leveled up n lit
tle and that black sand which Is to bo
found In abundance In certain locali
ties, be used as a top dressing.
ON LOAN MATTERS.
The House of Representatives has
decided to consider the loan of $799,000
In connection with Its work along the
line of appropriations. This will be the
very last thing on the program of the
extra session; One of tnc Hawaiian
members said this morning: "We In
tend to Ignore the message of Acting
Governor Cooper on this matter. This
document has been laid on the table
for future reference ind there It will
stay. One of the committees of the
House asked the Attorney General for
an opinion on the matter of the loan.
This official saw- At to give his opin
ion out for publication at the same time
he handed It to the committee. Then
tho messigc came. All we wanted was
Information for tho use of the commit
tee. To give It out to a newspaper and
then for tho Acting Governor to send
us a message were both unnecessary
and presumptous proceedings."
