In view of Mr. Thwing's failure to

MR, BRECKONS' EXPERIENCE. '
. Tho retention of DUtrlct Attorney
Ilreckons In oinco will bo greeted with '
gerv'ral appro ul by thoso who felt
that ho was tho victim of one. Timing.
Tho sentiment Is widespread that as
between Mr. Breckons and Mr.
Thwlng, tho former Is so far preferable ,
that It Is almost Improper to mention
them In tho sanio breath
Outsldo tho Thwlng campaign Mr.
Dreclcons has bein sciorely criticized
und In particular Instances Justly so.
Ho has not Bet the pace In tjio Ideals
of public olllco and personal conduct
that many Americans llko to sec.
Some of this criticism hns como to
Mr. Ilreckons and some has not. The
net result of tho present situation Is
that tho District Attorney has come
to know wherein ho has fallen short
In satisfying tho hoiies of somo of his
very good friends. That ho will prom
ise inform It not probiblo becauso wo
do hoc know tint ho has admitted cr
ior nut ho Is certainly possessed of
tho good Judgment to profit by mis
takes. THE GOVERNOR'S APPOINTMENTS
Governor 1'rear might hno "got up
mad" this morning und felt llko tell
ing tho Territorial Sena'to to "go to"
on tho matter of whom ho should ap
point to public offices. I
It is to bo anticipated that his bet- j
tcr Judgment will not lead him Into a'
contest with tho Senators who, being
ablo to contiol enough voles to pro
ent any confirmation, could probably
conduct u fight that would bo illsnstr.

no posslblo good. I
Tho required number of Sonntors i
'cxerclbcd their prlvllego of voting

their reasons may hnvo been can only
'bo surmised. They nro protected by
tho secrecy of nn oxecutlvo session,
which is nn abomination, am) tho pro
vision of tho Organic Act which given,
iliem tho right of pausing on tho nom
inations mado by tho Gou'rnnr.
Tho men who stnto that thero Is no
good reason why Campbell and Hem
enway should not bo retained In olllco
aro met by tho countor opinion that
tho Territory Is not so short of men

MR. ABE ANDJTAXPAYERS. '
" Is Mr. Abo, tho Japaneso merchant
who escaped prosecution through a
'faulty Indictment drawn by tho At-
' tornuy General's Department, to cs-
capo full Justice? Wo hope. not.
yffffl'linn'' Abe. left on tho steamer ,
yesterday for Japan, nnd unless tho'
Territorial authorities follow him up
APRIL 10, 1009
he will have enjojed a cry pleasant
tilp to Honolulu and return at the
expense of the Japanese merchants
and the Territory of Hawaii.
Accordlnc to tho Information
Bhen this paper, there Is nothing
but Inaction on the part of the Ter
ritorial department of Justice to pre-
ent the enforced return of this man
I to pay tho penalty of his financial
operations, lie might bo stopped at
i Yokohama and returned.
I If this can be done, the Attorney
General should act promptly. It Is
true thnt the taxpayers have paid n
' high prlco for tho faulty Indictment
I If It were a County officer thero
would bo loud (liar gca of lncompo
tcneo by County-government enemies
boostors but they can better afford
to pay mora than to have justice fall.
JAPAN FEELS HURT
AT CHINA'S REQUEST
Tokyo, March 30. Answering a re
quest for nn expression of tho views
of tho government concerning China's
proposal that tho Manchurlan ques
tions bo referred to Tho Hague, tho
foreign office today gavo out tho fol
lowing carefully worded statement:
Several" questions between Japan
and China of moro or less Importance,
with referenco to Manchuria, remain
unadjusted. Somo nro complicated,
but nil rcndlly could be inado to yield
to tho diplomatic process of gho and
Japan, fully appreciating tho advan
tages of removing nil causes of misun
derstanding from her relations with
her neighbors, mado proposals to
China looking to the final settlement
of outstanding differences. These pro
posals wero framed In n spirit of con
sideration and conciliation, and were
In no senso an ultimatum. Japan ex
pected that tho terms offered would
servo as n basis of negotiations or ns
points of departure for reciprocal con
cessions and accommodations, t
China at first apparent'1 accepted
Japan's friendly overtures In tho spirit
In which they wero tendered, but
malign Influences ultimately were per
mitted to prevail, and without discuss
ing tho questions or nuking any
counter p'roposals Chlnu categorically
rejected Japan's oiler aud suggested
recourse to Tho Hague.
In adopting this extraordinary
courso China Is guilty not only of
slight courtesy to Japan, but has dis
regarded ono of tho expressed provi
sions of Tho Haguo convention and
has completely reversed tho usual
courso of piocediirc. Tho questions
In dlsputo hnvo not been mado tho
subject of full detailed discussion be
tween tho two governments and no
attempt hns been mado to composo
tho differences or ascertain how far
thoy nro Irrccunclllublo.
