THE PASSING OF THE OLD REGIME
Editor Evrnlng llulli tin: "Hero lies poor Cuesnr and none so poor tu
do him reverence." No one Is an aspirant for repnscntutlon by the famous
body of charges tiled liitho uctlon of the liar Association against Judge
Huinphieys, which so signally enshrines the legal acumen, personnel and
brlllli y of the too conlldlng thirty--even.
"Wlim shall that glory fade Oh, tin, w, charges they mudo!"
However, when we remember that the thirty-seven names Include sucn
Ken as W. O. Smith nnd a full list of the Incandescent lights of the "old
regime," It becomes evident that this body of charges Is precisely represent
tctlvo of the so-called missionary party of Hawaii. Tho hotly of charges U
n preventative In Its spirit which Attorney General Knox fitly charactering
oh icckless and Intemperate: It is representative In tho vulnerability of Its
Integrity, which the same high authority scores, In that It Institutes grava
r.hnrges ngalnst a member of the bench unsupported save by "vague suspi
slon" and base 'innuendo:" It Is repre-entu'tlve In its passionate Intolerance
of American freedom, nnd the method, of the American courts of Justice, am!
as a whole Is honestly typical of tho working methods of the "old regtma"
