MISCHIEVOUS ADVICE FOR
1 IGNORANT STRIKERS.
In tho crnss-oxmnlnntlon of Mr.
Ncgoro Thursday Mr. I.Ightfoot per
sonally came prominently Into tho
'investigation, and tho tacts elicited
furnish excellent reasons why Mr.
J,lghtfoot has figured In the "shs
Mr. Ncgoro was being examined
ns to tho mnss meetings held by the
'Higher Wngo Association In Honolu
lu, In tho month of May Inst, on tho
eve of tho strike. On tho question
of whether or not thero hncl not
boen Inciting tnlk used by the
speakers at these mass meetings, Mr.
Kinney read the following quota
, tlon from Mr. Lightfoot's speech
made nt the mass meeting In ques
tion, contained In tho Advertiser, as
"Now, Just nnother word
about these newspapers. In this
morning's Advertiser thero Is a"
letter from a man who I nm
sure has very long cars, who
says that we ought all to bo ar
rested for conspiracy. Now
that It ns stupid as ridiculous,
and only a fool would talk that
way, HUT II' THUY WANT TO
AititnsT us i.irr them iiuino
thi:iii i'omci:mi:n and sol
uikiis to aiuikst tub
thousand mi:n whom i skk
llllKOIti: MK TONU1HT, AND
A I'UIJTTY TIME T1I1JV WILL
1IAVK TO DO IT."
, Mr. Negoro admitted Hint some
thing of the kind was s.ild, and stat
ed that Mr. Taj lor of the Advertiser
was preteiit and vvns taking down
Mr Ughtfoot's remarks in short
hand. It Is understood Hint Mr.
Taylor expressly and cmphallcnWy
(onllrms tho correctness of the very
wprils used by Mr. Llghtfoot, as
nbovc quoted. Mr. Ncgoro being
questioned ns to another public mcot
Ing of Japanese, held In May last, at
which Sir. Llghtfoot was nlso a
speaker, virtually conceded the cor
icctness of tho following stntement
In Mr. I.lghtfoot's speech, ns trans
lated from the Nlppu JIJI:
"If tho planters try to force
the laborers out of tlielr home,
the laborers must fight, even re
porting to violence to protect
their families. Japanese must
iiinulfest tho same spirit of uni
ty and determination in tho
present Htrugglo ns their fel
low rountrmen hnve shown In
tlielr wnr with Hussla."
Mr. Negoro testified that tho rcf
cicnce to tho Russian war caino on
later and did not Immediately fol
low tho referenco to eviction nnd
resistance thereto. There Is no
room to doubt the substantial cor
rectness of theso reports of Mr.
We do not believe many people
ran bo found who would claim thnt
It was within tho scope of Mr.
Llghtfoot s employment as an attor
ney for the strikers to take tho plat
form In behalf of tho strike move
ment, even If ho gave conservative
and prudent advice.
He was acting on theso occasions
purely ns an olllclous volunteer, bo
far as his position of attorney was
concerned, nnd when one goes fur
ther and considers what kind of talk
he put up to these Ignorant people,
speaking to them with tho prestige
of an attorney, nn officer of tho
court. It will bo hard to find lan
guage sufllclcntly to tho point to
chnracteilzo such' conduct.
Ills bearers naturally bollevcd
that ho was taking no reckless posi
tion and uttered no dangerous ad
vice: they wero Justified In believing
thnt In following the counsels of
their attorney they would surely be
well within their rights.
It must bo borno In mind nlso that
those men In May, when the mass
meetings were held, bad been work
ed up to a dangerous pitch of ex
citement and animosity. The daily
Incendiary campaign of tho JIJI bad
been on at Hint time slnco December
of the preceding -year, nnd no ono
knew better than Mr. Llghtfoot when
bo deliberately sowed In tho minds
of theso peoplo tho thought of re
sistance to tho pollco in enso iirrcsts
wero to bo made.
What did Mr. Llghtfoot mean
by suggesting that tho police and
even tho soldiers would havo a
"pretty time of It" making tho nr
icsts ho rofcrrcd to?
In wlint spirit did ho say to that
iiudlonco "Let thorn try it on?"
Tho promiscuous advice to resist
evictions from tho plantation quar
ters with forco and vlotenco, even
If It was good law, was uncnllcd for.
A- prudent lawyer, a right-minded
man, would not have referred to
the remedy of forco nnd violence In
- i public meetings. And when one
considers thnt, according to tho over-
whelming opinion of tho liar, tho
iidvtco was not only mischievous, but
tlimoughly nnd uttorly bad law, bis
offenso beeius tho more Inexcub.ilile.

TO UNIFY LAWS
Gathering at Capital Will Discuss
Range, of Subjects of Great
Importance, t "
In line with the Taft policy of Im
proving Instrumentalities for giving
efllclency to governmental adminis
tration, tho President has determined
to call another convention of tho
States, looking to uniformity of' legis
lation on n wide range of subjects.
Tho gathering will bo held In Wash
ington, January f, 6 and 7 next. It1
has been called as a result of Initia
tion by the National iCIVlo Federation,
whoso committee laid tho matter bc
foro tho President. ,
Tho rango of subjects which tho
conference may discuss Is almost in
finite. Tn Includes all tho aspects of
Interests commcrco regulations; uni
formity of nmrrlsgo and divorce laws
among the States; uniformity, of laws
relating to commercial paper, lir
which nlrendy much progress' has
been made: standardizing tho emnloy-
crs,' liability atts of.thofltate and tho
national government; 'uniting' tho
pure food legislation, child labor laws;
This conferenco, If the suggestion
of tho Piesldcnt Is followed, wilt lie
composed of men carefully "Selected
for their cxpcrlcnco and qualifications
to consider such n subject They will
bo named by tho Governors 'of tho
States and Tcrrltqrlcs, With them
will meet similarly equipped repre
sentatives of the different 'depart
ments of tho national 'government
for consideration of tho subjects fall
ing within their Jurisdiction.
It Is trot expected that this confer
enco will bo ablo to do more than tlm
preliminary work of providing an
effective organization through which
such a tremendous task may bo car-T
lied forward. Fur many year thero
has been Insistence thnt such liarino
nlzatlqn of State and federal pro
cedure ought to bo effected. Tlio
American liar Association linij been
a leader In tho movement, nnd its
model code of Inws governing' nego
tiable paper has now been adopted
by something less than hajf tho
States. But ns a whole, progress has
been painfully slow, and tho dual
scheme, of government lias been
brought under many criticisms as a
result. It has been particularly diffi
cult to regulate great corporations be
cause of the fact that a coriiornUon
may tako out n charter In any Statu
and then transact business nil over
tho country. The expectation is that
national Incorporation would be urged
ns ono of tho Importnnt reforms, and
Just ns vigorously opioscd by thoso
who do not hcllovo In it.
