lly n bulletin posted' In tho hotel
licrc 1 rod Hint tho Hnr Association
nt Honolulu linn endorsed Judgo Kc
polkal for reappointment to his pres
ent position; so It appears that tho
preponderance of sentiment among
tho members of tho legal fraternity
Is In favor of tho Maul Jurist nnd
that they do not attach great Impor
tance to tho charges brought against
him by County Attorney Dan Case.
Tho Kcpolkal matter Is ono which
Is attracting great Interest and caus
ing much comment all over Maul,
Naturally It Is of more moment on
this Island than on Oalui, whero tho
chief Interest In tho matter is politi
cal'. From llnna nt the other end of
the Island all the way to this placo
I have hcarXl tho matter much dls
cuBsol, and, whatever the real merits
of tho controversy, I am obliged to
say tho popular sentiment appears to
to strongly against Kcpolkal. Al
most everybody I have talked to In
regard to tho matter appears to think
that Case, was very moderate In his
charges and that ho didn't say near
ly all that ho might linvo said In re
gard to tho faults which he claims
should disqualify tho Judgo from
longer occupying his position on tho
It Is, however, practically Impos
sible to quote anybody. Nearly ov
eryono will talk freely enough, but
not tor publication. "Of course, you
understand I don't want to bo quot
ed. I have to live here, and the
llaldwln Interests, that aro backing
Kcpolkal, aro powerful. I can't af
ford to loso my bread and butter. '
Such Is the usual ending of all con-
crsatlou on tho Kcpolknl subject.
And, of course, It Is not without
foundation. In this part of tho Isl
and especially, as everybody knows,
tho Baldwins nre tho whole thing
and a man who makes himself ob
noxious to them can bo made to see
the c"rror of his ways, lly this I do
not mean to say anything against
il. P. llaldwln, who appears to be
a cry generally liked by nearly every
body, "llaldwln Is tho despot or
Maul," ono man said to mo, "but he
is n beneficent despot, and means to
do well by ovorybody. But ho Is used
to having his own way nnd it Is not
well to cross him."
Fortunately, tho Kcpolkal matter
has not been made a racial issue. In
fact, froni what I can learn, the
Judgo Is moro unpopular among tho
Hawallan8 than among tho haolos.
If Kcpolkal had to run for an elect
Ivo ofllco, ho couldn't bo elected
poundmaster," Is tho way ono of tho
best politicians on Maui' put It the
other day. "Tho Hnwatlans have ab
solutely no use for him. Thoy think
ho has thrown them down, find thoy
oro Boro. And thoy don't llko his
bullying. The troublo with Kcpolkal
Is that ho is nil swelled up with his
cwn Importance. Ho thinks ho is
tho wholo thing down here. Mo butts
Into everything that Is nono of his
business and tries to run it."
"What nbout that fishery busl
rcss?" I asked.
"Well, I'll tell you. That fishery,.
is u regular gom mine, somo years
I know that It Is worth 17000 a
j car, that Is what Kcpolkal makes
out of It. llaldwln doesn't know
this. Kcpolkal has pulled tne woo
over Ills eyes nnd made him believe
that It Is not worth over 130,0 a
year. If It wero not worth it good
deal moro than that, there wouldn't
bo several thousand dollars' worth of
nets In tho harbor. You see, the
fishery takes n tho wholo harbor."
That Is ono man's vlow of It,
though ho can quote no obvious facts
to support It.
I asked a good many times about
Kcpoikai'8 temper nnd Invariably
was told that Case had not at all ex
aggcratcd In regard to It. Sovornl
(old me that the Judgo can put frills
on tho English language when he
lays himself out that would make n
Mississippi steamboat mate green
with envy. Case's allegation that
the Judgo horso-whjpped n Chinese
police officer in the public road 1
have heard corroborated several
limes, coupled with tho remark that
It was a d d outrage
One remark that Is almost Invar
iably made In discussing tho Kepol
kal matter Is that Man Case has got
bis foot In it clear up to his neck -or
words to thnt effect If Kcpolkal
is reappointed. He'll make It warm
for Case, tho people say, if ho gets
tho reappointment. And oen those
who are Kopolknl'g supporters and
they seem mostly to be men directly
or Indirectly In tho employ of tho
Baldwins concede that Cnso has
taken upon himself a most unpleas
ant duty, out 'of which ho can expect
nothing bu troublo for himself.
And yet Kepolknl's opponents all
unlinowlcdgo thnt tho caso against
tho Judgo Is very weak In ono Im
portant particular. , Whatever hlB
conduct off tho bench, no charge, so
far ns Is known here, has been mndo
of nny misconduct or knowing un
fairness on his part In his omclal ca
pacity. He can mako It pretty un
pleasant for attorneys whom ho docs
not like, but he Is careful to say
what he has to say while ho is off
tho bench. This, of course, Is a
ttrong point In his favor. Also it is
claimed that Kepolknl's legal knowl
edge falls far short of what It should
be, yet his supportcis point out thnt
on the whole ho has no greater per
centage of decisions reversed than
tho other Circuit Judges.
Tho action of tho liar Association
is Important, qf course, ns expressing
tho sentiment of tho lawyers toward
Kcpolknl, oven though It Is the big
corporation lawyers that havo Mown
to his rescue, but It Is by no means
conclusive. Governor Krcar's recom
mendation will in all probability bo
followed by the President In filling
the vnenncy caused by tho expira
tion of Kepolkal's term, nnd Govern
or Frcnr Is not saying what he will
do In tho matter. Hut he Is here, on
tne Island, and he Is keeping his car
close to the ground. Frcar Is won
dcrfully absorptive. Ho missed hli
culling. He should really havo been
n newspaper man, for ho Is tho best
Interviewer I ever met. A reporter
goes to him to get an Interview, and
there Is an Interview. But unless the
Governor has something which ho
wishes to tell tho people through tho
medium ;of tho newspapers, the re
porter is very liable to como nwuy
scratching his head abstractedly and
wondering who really was Inter
viewed, himself or tho Governor.
And ho will generally concludo that
while ho was pumped as dry ns tho
insldo of an extinct volcano, the Gov
ernor hasn't said a thing.
l'rear always carries around In
his pocket a little black notebook.
Tho contents of that book would
nihko interesting reading, for tho
Governor takes notes on everything
that happens. 7 Imagine that tho
Fcntlmcnts of all' tho men who havo
talked to Ills Excellency about Kc
polknl are down in thnt notebook.
nnd when Krcur comes to dccldo cm
the matter, ho will tako It out nnd
balance them up pro and con. And
1 believe he will act on his own con
viciions in tno matter and recom
mend Kcpolkal fur reappointment or
not, as ho believes best for all con
cerned. Of courso, the Baldwins havo had
their Innings with tho Governor, both
in regard to Kcpolkal nnd In regard
to land matters, but they havo not
had It all their own way. Frear bus
talked with everybody, of all sta
tions and races. Ono of his objects
in coming to Maul, as ho has stated
revcral times, Is to find out what tho
peoplo want, and what they think
ubou't matters of public Interest, and
from whnt I havo seen, I bcllevo. he
has been fairly successful. Ho ap
pears to havo won tho conlldenco of
both tho big Interests and the small,
and whllo ho made, and probably
will make, mistakes In somo In
stances, I bcllevo ho Intends to bo
fair to everybody. It looks ns if tho
mntter of Kepolknl's reappointment
wore In safo hands.

Naval Committee Report
Arouses People To
The Washington Post of March 3
"In tire Judgment of the committee,
the new developments on tho Pacific
and among tho nations that border Its
shores mako It lmpnratlvo that u
strong operating base bo established
for our navy nt Pearl Harbor wlthou'
An enemy In possession of Hawaii
could harass and threaten our entire
Western coast. On tho other hand,
with our own fleet operating from n
woll-eqnlpppd b.iBO nt Pearl Harbor,
no fleet from tho Orient would find it
prncllcablo to threaten our coast bo
cause of the stronghold left In the rear
nnd tho prohibitive dlitanco from
their coaling base.
"A naval base nt Pearl Harbor Is
not designed primarily for the pro lec
tion of Hawaii; Its main puriKiso Is to
lorm a buffer of defenso for our wi
tire Pacific coast, and to mako pos
sible our supremacy upon tho Pacific."
Report of Naval Committee.
The foregoing constitute vital state
ments In ns sensational n report us
over mado by tho House Committee
on Naval Affairs. Tho report contain
Ing them was submitted yesterday In
support of tho bill Introduced n few
days by Representative Dates, of Krlo
Pn., appropriating $3,000,000 to cstnb
llsh u naval baso at Pearl Harbor,
near Honolulu: $700,000 of which Is to
bo Immediately available. Tho com
mittee ordered tho bill to bo favorably
reported. Such prcclpltntcncss of ac
tion uy so great n commlttco on a
subject calling for bucIi a largo ex
pcndlturo has not been known among
Houso members sluco tho beginning
of tho Spanish war.
That tho Dates bill is an ndmlnls-
trntlon measure nnd that tho talk of
war between America and Japan In
spired It mny easily bo Inferred from
tho fnct that. President Itoosovclt
asked tho Pcnnsylvanlan to como to
tho Whlto Houso nnd talk about tho
bill. Tho President approved It, ho
tho Pennsylvania member said.
Tho report ends with thu following
statement: "Uvcry consideration of
national honor or policy demauiti that
Pearl Harbor bo mado Impregnable
and equipped ns u naval base immed
iately." In another part of tho remrl
tho assertion Is mado that It Is tho
only prnctlcablo slto for a naval baso
in the Pacific Ocean, nnd Is thu, recog
nized key to tho naval supremacy of
these waters. Its equipment ns nn op
erating baso Is prerequisite to tho
successful operation of our fleet,
whether ojfcuslvo or defenshc.
Beit Harbor In the World.
Tho harbor which It Is proposed to
fortify Is said to bo tho best natural
harbor In tho world. With a depth of
sixty feet and nn area of ten squaro
miles, it is capable of harboring all
tho navies of tho world combined. The
harbor Is land-locked, and tho moun
tains surrounding It shut off all vlow
of ships lying within from tho open
sea. Tho mountains aro so high that
mortar tiro would bo ineffectual, and
tho drugging of guns to tho heights of
land around would bo Impossible.
For moro than slxty-flvo years tho
United States Government has official
ly recognized tho Hawaiian Islands ns
tho natural outpost of Its defenses,
nnd In 1811 President Tyler put out n
Monroo doctrine of tho Pacific, say
ing that tho United States would nev
er consent to havo tho moccuplcd 'by
a foreign power.
