THE MAJORITY DECISION ON JUDI

Individual opinion of tho shall and tho

man hesitates to participate In a dis
cussion of points" of law whero an "au
thority" Is cited on one sldo only to bo
met with the citation of another "au
thority" equally positive, on tho other.
Approaching a problem In tho courts,
however, from the standpoint selected
bythjft lato Judge Esteo when he said,
"I want the peoplo of Hawaii to feel
that American law Is common Justice,"

The Supreme Court majority decision
on the disqualification of Hartwell In
the Notley w 111 casa has aroused public
opinion because In the esteem of the
popular If not legaj majority It violates

the litigants does not satisfy tho aver
nge American's Ideal of Justice, com'

fact that the opinion of the Justlco
whoee quiillflcatlon Is In doubt Is tho
deciding opinion of a divided court,
nnd you have a condition which tho
average American seeking common
justice, accepts with n snort of disgust.
What man wants his case passed

race can be an absolutely unbl" 1"

Justice Hartwell evidently believes
that ho Is ono of the exceptions to tho
rule. The public sees little common
justice In this assumption. The Justice
Is placed, or places himself, In a posi
tion which the layman, If not tho law
yer, would recommend every Judgo to
avoid. If he be human, ho cannot ea
rn po the Influence of his association
with the 'case. In his anxiety to bo
fair and not lean too strongly toward
his old clients, he Is as likely to tip
the other way. Admitting his good In
tentions nnd Integrity, his decision
either way putB him In the unpleasant
and Inelegant position of bolng
"damned If he does and damned If he
donX". Again admitting his good In
tentlonc and Integrity, ho Is estab
lishing a doubtful and, what seems to
the layman, an unnecessary precedent,
whlcji may furnish tho ready help in
time of the corrupt needs of dishonest
Frailties of human nature nro such
that the average American, aiming to
obtain common Justlco, looks upon tho
Hartwell decision as holding that nra
nlpotence, and ability to rise nbove
earthly Influences are possessed by only ,
n few, Including "Me und Gott."
it Is to be hoped that Injustice will
not bo done by the majority principle
expounded by tho Territorial Supreme
Court in tho Notley 'case. There Is
tnueli reason for satisfaction that tha
doors nro open for appeal to the Fed
eral Supreme Court, where It may be
possible to have determined whether
the Hawaiian declaration of principle
squares with the unassailable Ideal that
American Inw is tommon Justice.
If the "Me und Clott' principle is
right, wo ought to know It!
A few, weeks ngo tho morning paper
gave liberal sp.icc to an Illustrated
article setting forth ln elaborate de
tail a scheme of Dr. V. W. Jacques for
obtaining electricity direct from coal.
The man who successfully accom
plishes this hitherto unattainable
blessing will rank as one of tho great
est men of the age. Hence It is that
scientific men are keenly on the look
out for every ndvance that may bo
made toward the Invention which will
crento greater revolutions than elec
The public li skeptlcnl but the sci
entist Is ready to accept nil things as
possible and acknowledge the fact
when it Is clearly demonstrated na ex
isting. Therefore the comment of the
"Engineering News." accepted as one
of the best American authorities, on
Dr. Jacques' claims has especial value.
That journal says:
Ten years ago Dr. W. W. Jac
ques, of Huston, came lief ore the
public with n claim that ho had
Invented n new process for tho
production of electricity by tho
direct combustion of 10.1l with an
efficiency of orr SO per cent. The
alleged invention was thoroughly
dlscifsscd In our Issues of May 21,
ISM, nnd September 29, 1S9S, and
tho conclusion reached was that
Dr. Jacques had wholly failed to
proe his claims.
A correspondent In Iloston sends
us now a copy of a prospectus of
the Direct Electric Co.. In which
Dr. Jacques again describes his
process nnd asks subscriptions to
the stock of n to-be-orgnnlzcd com
pany, the proceeds to be devoted
to tho work of developing the pro
cess, which Is admitted to be not
yet at tho stage of commercial suc
cess. This proposition Is fair enough
and a perfectly legitimate use of
Investors' money, provided the
statements made In tho prospectus
are not of such a nature as to de
ceive tha Investor with fnlso hopes.
On this point, however. It Is our
duty to say that the present pros
pectus appears to bo ns deserving
of criticism as were Dr. Jacques'
publications of ten years ago. He
repeats Ills' old claim In tho fol
"In numerous laboratory tests
made with apparatus of scientific
value but not adapted to extended
commercial use there has been
obtained as electricity by far the
greater portion of the energy con
tained In the coal consumed."
If tills were true. Dr. Jacques
might very reasonably appeal to
Investors for financial support;
but the fact Is that Dr. Jacques'
claims were thoroughly and public
ly discussed n decode ngo before
scientific societies and In the tech
nical press and wero definitely re
jected. If his patent then Issued
had really been bused on sound
principles and had really shown
the way to tho production of elec
tricity by tha direct combustion of
carbon, the experiment would long
ago have been repeated In n hun
dred laboratories and would buvo
been established as a stlentlflc'fact
whether It had been commercially
successful or not. Dr. Janucs has
shunned by the person of wealth w;ho
has plenty of money and can afford
to speculate on experiments. It should
not. on the other hnnd, be attractive
to the frugal man with limited funds
who feels that by putting In n dollar
today he will securo millions tomor-
low, though It be true that the Invent
or who finds the wnv to nrodure pIpp-
trlrltv illrpct from m.il u-IH tint Inntr

ON CRATER OF
'While tho crater of Kllauca is In
dulging In Its rather undignified pe
riglnntlons, It cannot cscapo tho
watchful eye of tho Territorial Survey
Department, which for jours past has
been keeping an eyo on these move

"This Is caused by the fact that tha
