THAT "ANARCHY" CKY.
The honest Interpretation of law
In the habeas corpus cases, resulting
from t'.e Illegal conviction of prison
ers during the transition period, proes
the utter foolishness of thi "Jail On
lltery," "anarchy ' cry raised by our
official faction. There lias been no
Jail delUery; thorn will be none; there
would have been no Jail deliver) or'
anarchy during the "transition period" i
had the members of Hawaii's SuprcMO
Court the courage to accept the duty
placed uon them like men.
The bugaboo of "anarchy" and tba
false alarm of Jail delivery were mere '
ly poor ninl Incompetent forms of
cvuse by which It was sought to hide
the Incompetence of official life. They
were products of factionalism, the el
dence of politics weighing heavily In
ithe balance of Justice with the pur
pose and Intent ot defeating Jusllf.
The route, that seemed the easiest wnn
taken without regard for the rlgh.a
ot the prisoners.
The Jails are not emptied o. prison
ers charged with Infamous crimes. The
community Is peaceful. Anarchy Is,
not In sight. Justice Is being render
ed: the rights guaranteed by the Con-'
stltutlon of the Fnlted States arc be
ing upheld. That Is' all. When Am I
erlenn law creates anarchy the moon'

law students of the Territorial Su
preme Court ought to Know It. They
doubtless did, but 'nrcordlng to their,
early teaching It Is more honorable to
support the contentions of friends!
than to declare the law without regard
Slowly but none the less surely the)
factional rulers of these Islands aro!
being taught that the Newlands Reso-I
lutlon and the Territorial Act were not
pasM-d. nor was the American Hag
raised here to maintain old oligarchical
or monarchical conditions. They

by American law must and sh;fll pie

So all Judlt lal officers here should

The familiar rule of stare decisis
does not seem to receive recognition hy
tho Buprvme Court of the Territory for
that court decides one way at one tlm
und another wa) at other times upon
questions of the gravest Importance
and which cases lnolve Identically the
Mine principle. The ery uncertainty
of that Court's opinions tends to dis

the Supreme Court of tho Territory has
done that the Constitution" la not

what parts are here upd what parts

states that "Judge Humphreys was

H.i.iiaciueut for tho public interested in
watching thu antics ot the slanderers.
Judge Humphreys was humbled? How?

ml httlng for JuiIrc Humpheys, &
sterling American, to be forced to expose-
the hypocrisy and disloyalty of
the gang attacking htm, which has
hitherto posed us the epitome of poll
tlcal purity. It Is humiliating fur any

cials placed In positions of public
trust, their disregard fur- the laws
