The governmental determination to
giw some one capable of accomplish
ing the task a license to tluwlop th
water In the Hamaku.i district Is to be
commended. A season like the pres

This opinion should operate ns a
check upon the shyster lawyer, whose

to contlnce people who get their name

The average Individual who conducts

ot Satur-(ew libel rases are decided adversely
to the press; and the only "damages"
the plaintiff Is likely to get will be the
satisfaction of putting tho newspaper

Justice McAdam's decision should
have the effect of still further reduc
ing the liability of the newspapers for
damage's for libel. It Is comparatively
easy to claim that the general tenor ot
