LIGHTFOOT AND HIS ORGAN.
Mr l.ightfoot has nothing lo say
to our editorial the other da) on his
methods as a lavvver as Illustrated
in his relations to the Japanese
strike bevontl raising a question as
to who wiote the editorial.
He has no excuses to offer his fel
low citizen for Inciting an alien
late to disorder nt a critical time
when he and cvervnne know thnt
they hid nlrtnd) been inllimtd to
tho danger 'point by In(cndlnr) ar
ticles from the Jupani e prcsn. Mr.
l.lgmroots native Impudinie, how
ever, evidently icmalns undiminish
ed as shown li his answer to n Just
and icisonnhtc arraignment of his
mischievous conduct affecting the
public Interests nnd, therefore, a
matter of public comment
This papei, however, is not the
only one thnt has commented on Mr.
Mghtfoot's conduct In the premise.
The Advertiser of Mny 1G, In n mo
ment of Intelligence, simply voices
n universal sentiment when It gave
out nn editorial on the subject,
which follows It only remains to
bo seen whether Mi l.ightfoot b'
wav of nnsvvcr to that editorial will
meet the Issue of tils responsibility
for Inciting the Japanese laborers to
violence, or whether he will answer
it as ho did tho II u llotln with
more of his impudenco nnd nffront
ir: "THK AUTHOIUTV OI' LAW.
"It was u bid suggestion to
tho strikers that a policeman
might find trouble In nrrestlng
a man among the thousands of
them bad because It was In
ccndlary and nlso because It"
tended to form the Impiobslon
that tlicman would thus escape
arrest, which Is not true. Toil
the policeman of his prey, and
that brings more policemen;
foil them In turn and tho mili
tia comes to arrest tho culprit;
drive them back and tho United
States regulars take a hand, and
If mora regulars are needed, tho
government sends them to its
last man If the wrong-doer es
capes and makes his w.i) to his
native land, extradition seeks
him out and brings him back
fnr trlnl Once ho Is spotted
for arrest, ho will lie arrested,
no matter how many ft lends ho
has, no matter how mnnv of
them get In tho way.
"It conies with bad graco
fiom any citizen least of all
from uno who Is sworn to sup
port and defend, and, If neces
sary, to help enforce tho law of
tho land to nrgo that n po- (
llrcman'H duty In nny crisis
which may nrlso Is to bo regu
lated, Influence! or circum
scribed by tho numbers opposed
to him. Tjii tho careless observ
er the odds may Becm great
against a single officer when ho
goes Into n mob to nriest a ring
lender; but they nro by far tho
greater against tho mob. That
slnglo policeman Is tho law In
Its majesty nnd In Its panoply
of power. Tho inob may over
run the Individual; but tho law,
rising superior to assault, may,
Bummon an army to its sldo.
Tho Japanese agitators In tho
plantation strike leeognlzo this
vital truth and havo urged
their followers to beware tho
overt act. It Is strange, Indeed,
thnt an American lawyer should
bo tho ono to raise his voico in '
dissent nnd'to suggest thnt tho
law of this land mny bo trnmp
led on with Impunity by num
bers " ,
Tho foregoing has all the moro
foico birauso Mr. l.ightfoot. fiom
II i si to last In these btrlko dials has
made a speeialtv of pinlslng the Ad
vi'itlhor. Ho has not been nblo to
say enough In Its pulse, nnd we
wonder, therefore, what he has to
say when even tho Advertiser calls

Mr. Negoro was then questioned
as to articles In the J1JI ndvlslng tho
bojeott of Slieba. Ho emphasized
again In that connection thnt thb
Higher Wage Association did not
have control of the JIJ1, and that he
was not responsible for Its articles,
whereupon the prosecution produced
n letter printed in tho J1JI fiom the
Jopaneso of liana declaring a hov
cott ngalnsl tho Bhlnpo as ono of the
articles of Its Association which was
addressed directly to tho "Honolulu
Higher Wnge Association." Con
fronted with this fact, Negoro claim
ed that ho had never seen tho arti
cle In the Jljl. Questioned further
he admitted that It was common for
letters to bo sent to tho Higher
Wnge Association through the JUL
nnd that ho had never objected to
V.x, Negoro took a new tnck to
da, and Instead of admitting
things and their Impropriety, ho de
nied any criminality or criminal in
tent In any languago used by the
Jljl that ho was confronted with.
When counsel confronted him with
tho Btntemcnt In tho Jljl that Slieba
would not die n natural death, he
said that was purely allegorical and
ns n matter of fnct was published In
the funny column of tho paper.
Whon confronted with the Higher
Wago song "calling on hunters to
slay tho Shclu dog," ho merely dis
missed thnt with tho statement that
it was purely allegorical and(morely
meant to convey tho idea that the
writer detested Shcha and his ways.
Cotug on with his denials ho declar
ed that until tho evidence had been
brought up by nflldnvlt In the in
junction proi ceding he was not

When confronted with Jljl nrticles

he disclaimed responsibility for the

lofcrrcd to, Hnta having been mixed
up In lhat affair, Mr. l.ightfoot de
clared this phase of It mado him laugh
"Why didn't tho pollco scire Hnta,
II ho was concerned In that action In

Tills led to u prolcst by Mr. Kin

ing tho defeat of tho police In locating
Hotnjind nrrestlng him under warrant
or tho court for felony ns n matter of
congratulation, nnd tho pollco ns nn

Mr. l.ightfoot disclaimed nny such
motive, nnd the Incident was closed
by tho statement of tho court that It
did not wish lo prejudice tho rights of
tho defendants by rommcntln on Iho

had been In company with llata and
thnt llnta was a dilcgato to the con
