THE COURT AND PETERS.
In an editorial utterance that bears
the earmarks of having been handed
In nt a late hour after being edited
In Judicial circle, one of tlio city
papers i iff em an explanation of the
action of the Supremo Court In rep
rimanding the Attorney (lenernl for
his action In following the decision
of the Court In the Lniiul ciiku.
Tlio explanation sajs the Attorney
flrncrnl was not refused the oppor
tunity to speak In his own defense,
tuHiiincdly. because lie did not usk for
The explanation also says the Court
Mimniarlly piouniinred a reprimand
for an offense that left nothing to be
,RJId. So why should the Attorney
(ienenil have asked.
Tho more the action of tlio Court
Is explained, the more there Is to
suggest that the Court, cither
through carelessness in preparing Its
decision or over-earnestness In free
ing tlio Territory from a delay In
technicalities, did something which
Itjnfterwitrds wished It hud not done,
nnu consequently made Attorney Clou
oral Peters the goat.

i .mil thai Court mid full authority tu
do the dismissing, without referring
back to tho lower Court for "further

why the person or officer against
whom the suit was brought was not
entirely flee to go ahead .with the
business ho had In hand.
The llitltetln has no destro to tell
tne Supreme Court what It should (l.
beyond advising a straightforward
support of common Justice at all

The original decision of the Court
appealed to this paper us expressing

nit out unnecessary nnd technical
delays. It wiped the boards.

There Is nothing to be gained from

bad, and with this purpose In view It
would hnvo seemed better for tho
Court to have stood by Its decision

Presence Of Mosquitos
Menace To Public
Sooner or later ellow fever may be
brought Into Honolulu by lomo vessel
coining from' tho Isthmus. If the con
dltions which exist here at present arc
hot changed bctoru that time, Hono
lulu tuny have nu epidemic that will
bo much more ccrlous and disastrous
than any that has ever occurred bc
lorc. A statement to the alsive effect was
made nt tho inciting of the Hoard ot
Health yestcrdny when President Pink
ham hrotiKht up the matter of protec
tion against yellow fever.
The Stygomln, tho mosquito which
carilcs yellow fever. Is present In Ho
nolulu. It Is the tittle striped one that

ixisslhle wny, according to tho state
ment of Dr. Wayson, to prevent tho
feprcad of tho dircacc, once It gets in.
Is to eliminate this lurcct.
The matter came up through the re
port ot President Plukhnm to the
lloiiid. Mr. Piiikhinii reported ns fol

not allow water to stand In holes In
