presumably on this subject. Mr. Wal
do evidently did not find the Presi

fact Is that charges against Judge
Wllfley havo been frouuonlly before

have sustained Judge Wlllley ami
more firmly etsabllshcd him In the

President agrees with tho State De

imide n line record at Hongkong,
where he Is said to have cleaned out
criminals of all sorts and sizes with
u firmness that has brought uown up
on him the enmity of Influential In
terests. It Is these interests that aro
making things hot for him. Tho Stntu
Department some time ago Investi
gated charges that Judge Wllfley had
greatly offended tho Catholic Church
In Hongkong and elsewhere by a de

as to the .Pope and dignitaries of tho
